Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel Fusion Wedding Photographer

Fusion weddings involve two wedding ceremonies whose traditions span two different cultures. For this Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel fusion wedding, the couple had a Catholic church ceremony in the morning and a Hindu ceremony in the late afternoon. The key to shooting two-ceremony wedding days is creation of a good timeline. Your photographer should always draft up the first major events timeline to help ensure that there is enough time to create all the images the bride and groom are hoping for. For this double-ceremony fusion wedding, the bride wore a white wedding dress for the church ceremony, then switched to an Indian lengha for the Hindu ceremony and reception. As a nod to the groom's Polish heritage, each table at the reception featured a bottle of vodka, which the guests were encouraged to use for a traditional Polish toast. I love the contrast of the bride's mendhi against her beautiful white wedding dress. The bride and groom also set up an after-party in a room adjacent to the reception ballroom, which the guests really enjoyed. Fusion wedding photographed at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel.
