I was both excited and nervous when Eva & Andy asked me to cover their wedding because Andy has been a buddy of mine who got me into photography, and he’s also into photography himself. Also, their wedding has got to be one of the most unique weddings I have shot to date – both of them being Chinese, they elected to have an Hindu wedding ceremony at Hotel Laguna at Laguna Beach. I’m no stranger to Hindu weddings, but this sure isn’t an average wedding you’d come across every day. =)
The wedding venue Hotel Laguna is a historical building dated back to 1888 and is a cute and charming place. Their unique and colorful decorations really made the entire wedding very special. They went as far as having a hindu priest and Eva wore a traditional sari while Andy wore a sherwani during their ceremony. At their dinner reception, Eva slipped into her wedding gown and they wowed the guests again with some great Bollywood dancing performance and their beautiful Croquembouche!
The entire day of wedding has been nothing but total awesomeness thanks to the very dedicated vendors:

Congratulations again Eva and Andy!!!
