If you're a lover of bright and vibrant events, then you're going to love this Villa Sancti Wedding! After three days of gorgeous events which included their Sangeet and Mehndi Ceremony it was time to get married. Aarti and Sukrant's 300+ person wedding took place at Villa Sancti, a gorgeous Malibu private estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It had the perfect amount of open space to accommodate the vast amount of people all while keeping it grand, yet intimate. Amber Gustafson's planning team was fantastic and the Shawna Yamamoto team delivered some of the most beautiful floral arrangements I've ever seen. This is a huge post, I hope you enjoy!
Villa Sancti Wedding
Even with a massive production going on behind the scenes, Aarti had a wonderful calm beauty to her. Everyone around her picked up on it was such a pleasure seeing her transformed into a radiant bride.
The Baraat was fun, loud, and crazy as it should be! Sukrant arrived on a white horse which paraded down the gravel path to Aarti's awaiting family. There was tons of dancing and everyone had a great time!
The colors really started pouring out for the traditional Hindu wedding ceremony. Aarti & Sukrant were married by Pundit Shukavak [who also did Deepa and Bart's wedding] and was full of wonderful smells, color, and texture. Even with 300 people in front of them you could really sense the feeling of excitement and love between the two of them.
After the ceremony we headed down to Paradise Cove in Malibu for a quick set of portraits before getting changed and grabbing a few additional ones around the estate.
Shawna Yamamoto's florals are without a doubt some of the most beautiful centerpieces I've ever seen. They used a mix of fuschia and coral colored peonies and garden roses along with driftwood to create a gorgeous sea of color. I think everyone's jaw dropped with the final presentation.
The reception was full of warm and tender moments and fit Aarti and Sukrant's personality perfectly. Oh, and the dancing was amazing.
