Saarika & Partha's Pelican Hill Newport Coast Wedding
"A father's heart is unfathomable because it's filled with an ocean of love." Words written and spoken so beautifully by Saarika's father echo the theme of Saarika & Partha's same-day-edit, commemorating their cross-country love story, which we were lucky enough to document over the course of a year, beginning with their heartwarming engagement celebration in New York.
Saarika & Partha's love story begins with Saarika and her father, as she starts a new married life in California, his unconditional love endures despite a difficult diagnosis. The moments they share at home and at the engagement show just how strong the bonds run in this beautiful family. Saarika & Partha's love story picks up in California a year later with a gorgeous weekend of wedding festivities kicked off with a fun welcome dinner at Marriott Newport Beach, offering guests from around the world stunning views of the Pacific Ocean at sunset.
The next day the couple hosted friends and family at Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast for a wedding all together sentimental, traditional, and fun, with a baraat procession that culminated in a modern Hindu ceremony overlooking the Southern California coastline. The Pelican Hill gazebo was later transformed for an elegant outdoor reception both lavish and chic, for speeches, dinner and dancing under the stars. We're honored to have been given the opportunity to capture this very special love story for this beautiful couple and their amazing family.
