Shane and Josh’s Avalon Palm Springs wedding was planned and designed by our good friend and often collaborator Joey Lizotte from Artisan Events. Although not a new property, the Avalon Hotel Palm Springs is new to the Palm Springs hotel scene. Most recently the Viceroy Palm Springs, the hotel changed ownership in March 2015. Former founder of Viceroy Hotels, Brad Korzen, took over the hotel with his new brand Proper Hospitality. Other than that, its still the same Kelly Wistler designed charming boutique hotel.

For Shane and Josh, it was the perfect place to celebrate their love over the weekend. Friends and family came in from all of the United States and beyond. Things started off with an epic pool party which continued into the wedding party. During cocktail hour guests were entertained by the Aqualillies. The Aqualillies is a retro-themed synchronized swimming group which may be one of the most interesting forms of wedding entertainment. Their wedding portraits were photographed offsite near the infamous Palm Springs windmills which meet you on your way into town.

Many thanks to everyone we worked with over the weekend, especially Joey from Artisan and Olivia from the Avalon Hotel.

Ashima and Ayush’s Bel-Air Bay Club Indian Wedding was planned by the amazing Mili Shah of Planning Elegance. The Bel-Air Bay Club is located just north of Santa Monica where Mailbu begins.  It’s interesting to note that the Bel-Air Bay Club was built in 1927 and was the premier social hub during the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Today there are two clubs: Upper and Lower, separated by Pacific Coast Highway. Weddings and special events take place at the Upper Club, which may have the best view of the Pacific Ocean than any other wedding venue in the LA.

Congratulations to you Ashima and Ayush! It was amazing to spend a couple of days with you and your families.

Ashima and Ayush held their South Asian Sangeet at the Carondelet in downtown Los Angeles. The Carondelet is one of the more unique event venues in all of Los Angeles. Originally constructed as an Italian style villa in 1928, the house features an open floor plan with exposed brick, hardwood floors and tons of natural light. The owners have decorated the house with lots of interesting furniture and antiques. Outside the Carondelet feels like you are in the French Quarter in New Orleans. For their Carondelet Sangeet portraits, Ashima and Ayush preferred to shoot most of the pictures in western attire. A Sangeet is a traditional Indian ceremony which is more or less a big party thrown the night before the wedding day. There are traditional dance performances from family and friends, and lots of yummy Indian food. The following photos are some of our favorite portraits of Ashima and Ayush.

The event was planned by our good friend, Mili Shah of Planning Elegance.
