CATHOLIC/Hindu Wedding at the 4 Seasons Biltmore - Santa BarBAra

I FIRST TALKED TO VIK AND STEPHANIE ABOUT SIX MONTHS BEFORE THEIR FUSION WEDDING. IT'S IMPORTANT TO MY CLIENTS THAT I UNDERSTAND THE AMOUNT OF TIME EACH CEREMONY WILL TAKE PLACE AND HOW TO APPROACH THE INTRICACIES OF THE CEREMONIES. BOTH VIK AND STEPHANIE LIVE IN NEW YORK SO THEY PLANNED THEIR DESTINATION WEDDING FROM AFAR BUT GETTING MARRIED IN HER HOME TOWN OF SANTA BARBARA WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO STEPHANIE. AT THE TIME SHE WAS ALSO WORKING AS AN EDITOR FOR THE KNOT WEDDING MAGAZINE SO, SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WANTED IN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY. THEY HOSTED A WEEKEND-LONG FUSION WEDDING AT THE FOUR SEASONS. THE FIRST CEREMONY WAS HELD AT ONE OF CALIFORNIA'S OLDEST MISSIONS WHERE HER DAD WALKED HER DOWN THE AISLE AS SHE WORE A BEAUTIFUL WHITE DRESS. THE NEXT DAY THEY CELEBRATED VIK'S CULTURE WITH A SOUTH INDIAN CEREMONY AT THE FOUR SEASONS WHERE HE MADE HIS ENTRANCE TO HIS BARAAT IN A RED CONVERTIBLE MUSTANG, IT WAS INDEED A SO-CAL MOMENT. THE BEST PART OF THEIR WEDDING WAS WITNESSING BOTH OF THEIR CULTURES, FAMILY AND FRIENDS COME TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE LOVE. THEIR WEDDING WAS FEATURED IN THE KNOT MAGAZINE AND THE KNOT BEST OF BOOK.
