Following the fun-filled Sangeet the night before (check out the Sangeet post here!), Kruthika and Tony were ready to start the wedding festivities. With the Four Seasons Westlake Village's beautiful waterfall and sun-kissed trees as the background, Kruthika and Tony's traditional North meets South Indian ceremony was filled with positive energy, vibrant colors and lots of love. The groom's procession, also known as the Baraat, kicked off the celebration as Tony rode his horse drawn chariot alongside his family as they paraded to be greeted by the bride's family. As the families came together, the couple exchanged flower garlands under the Mandap, vowed their commitment to one another and as final blessings came upon them, they were soon pronounced husband and wife!
Following the ceremony, guests were invited to the Hamptons Room for a South Indian Vegetarian buffet catered by Vishnu Catering. The room quickly filled with great conversations, scrumptiously spicy food, and smiles all around! As night fell, the Grand Ballroom doors opened and guests were welcomed by lush floral candelabras created by XO Bloom and a sea of lit candles for a welcoming glow. The reception space was a vital part of the celebrations for Kruthika and Tony as they wanted to incorporate their personalities into the decor. Every corner was filled with an abundance of beautiful colors... incorporating Kruthika's favorite colors of turquoise and purples, with a modern and glamorous touch added for Tony with the sleek white staging and customized dance floor.
The night was filled with special performances dedicated to the couple by loved ones, which was a sweet surprise to Kruthika as she herself is a dancer. With great mixes by Special Occasions, the Indian classical music was combined with the western forms to create a fun and upbeat fusion that made all guest want to get out there on the dance floor and celebrate the night away! Kruthika and Tony's wedding celebration weekend was truly unforgettable and filled with love. We wish them all the happiness in the world as the new Mr. & Mrs. (or Dr. & Dr.) Handa!
