Wow, what at weekend! This past weekend I worked for the fabulous Mary Sushinski of Occasions on the two day Indian weddings of Sheila & Rondeep. Sheila is Hindu and Rondeep is Sikh, so they had two complete weddings in 2 days. It was all so gorgeous! Friday I assisted Mary with the Hindu ceremony & reception at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu for 300 people, and Saturday I headed up the reception for 550 people at the Omni Hotel in Los Angeles as Mary had another wedding that day.

I decided to blog the weekend with my iPhone camera.

Reception Day
Saturday, June 28

10:30 AM: Breakfast at Hugo’s. And a much better one than the day before! 1:15 PM: Set up begins6:30 PM: No time to have taken other set up shots, as our team of 6 and all of the other vendors were racing the clock!

The weekend was a crazy amount of work, but everything came together so beautifully and the bride, groom, & family were so happy with everything. Managing 550 people is quite a difficult feat, but I learned so much and I am thankful to have had the experience. Indian weddings are so unique and beautiful and I really look forward to doing more in the future.

Congratulations, Sheila & Rondeep! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day!
