Sameena and Pedro had a modern Indian Muslim wedding at the Hyatt Huntington, designed by one of our favorite event planners, Kismet. Amana and Saadia really out done themselves with the design of this rich and vibrant wedding.

We love to do creative projects such as this!  This is a shoot with friends from the industry.  When makeup artist, Chiali of Chiali Meng Artistry approached us about doing a photo shoot, we immediately said yes because we adore her work.  Chiali brought in Yingka from Master Plans Events and Designs to create a fresh spring backdrop.  We are also admirers of Yingka’s floral creations.  Our photo studio was bursting with fresh cut flowers, props, not to mention the huge collection of wedding gowns from Jennifer Wu of Royal Accessories.   Yingka Chou and Theresa Toledo created colorful pinwheel paper crafts for our backdrop. So sit back and take in all the creative juices that flowed among artists and collaborators to see what may inspire you to do for your own wedding and events.

When it’s this good, let him wait while you indulge in moments of delight.
