It was quite an insane weekend when Kelly and Dean’s wedding at La Venta Inn at Palos Verdes, Kristina and Grant’s wedding at US Grant Hotel in San Diego, and Nina and Ren’s wedding in beautiful Surf and Sand Resort located in Laguna Beach (Orange County)! With those three weddings we were given the opportunity to photograph, we were exposed to so many different cultures and color! Nina and Ren’s wedding at Surf and Sand was a prefect way of ending our wedding photography weekend with a huge bang! Of the three weddings, Nina and Ren’s traditional Indian wedding was, of course, the most colorful.

Nina and her gals started their day early with breakfast, junk food, and plenty of hairspray! I would say that is a perfect combo for any girl at the wedding! While the ladies goofed off and practiced a dance they performed for the reception, we photographed their wedding details and their amazing smiles.
Nina’s wedding bouquet had a photograph of her mother who touched her life. That was a really sentimental detail for Nina’s big day.
Nina and Ren had their “first look” prior to the wedding ceremony. It was a private showcase that consisted of just the wedding party and us photographers. =)
With the extra time we had before the wedding ceremony, we ran around Surf and Sand Resort for some cool wedding photos! We made use of the driveways and the bellhop carts for the following wedding pictures.
Here comes the bride! It is always an awesome moment to watch and photograph different cultures celebrate their wedding.
Ren was a real joker, even at his wedding! In an Indian wedding, the groom marks a red spot on the bride, but he rubbed the red dye all over her nose like Rudolph the red nose reindeer. =D
After the wedding ceremony, we ran around Laguna Beach to wrap up their wedding photos.
After their wedding pictures were done, we had just enough time to get these two ready for their grand entrance. Nina and Ren danced the night away with the rest of their wedding guests. Congratulations on your big day, Nina and Ren! Your wedding at Surf and Sand in Laguna Beach was definitely one to remember.
