In February I traveled to Santa Monica to take Bianca and Varun's engagement photos there. It was my first time meeting them in person, and they are absolutely incredible. They took me out to dinner and I spent the whole evening hanging out with them and just had a complete blast. It made me so excited for their wedding, which absolutely did not disappoint.
The day started with a Baraat, where Varun rode on a horse while the wedding guests danced around him, and loud music played, it was so amazing. Then they had a Hindu Ceremony full of gorgeous traditions and symbols, then they had a Catholic Ceremony in Downtown and then returned to the Eastside Exchange building for their reception. It was a gorgeous day full of joy and good times. Click here to see the film from their day by Couture Motion Pictures.
