Indian Wedding Photographers Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel Recessional

A recessional is not a traditional part of an Indian wedding ceremony, but I always encourage my clients to do one, as it makes for a great photograph for their wedding album. For this Indian wedding, which took place at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, my energetic couple couldn't hide their joy as they slowly walked down the aisle after their wedding ceremony. I love that the guests are actively participating by throwing flowers and applauding the couple (rather than putting iPhones or iPads into the aisle). It is so lovely when guests can just be in the moment, and can truly be part of a couple's wedding joy. I thought about cropping this photo a bit tighter, but I love the petals fling over the bride and groom's heads, and cropping would eliminate some of those beautiful suspended petals. So I decided to leave the crop as shot. Can you see the garden-style decor on the interior ceiling of the mandap? This creative bit of genius floral work was done by Fayaz and the team at Bloom Box Designs. Wedding coordinated by Nutan Shah at Elegant Events.
