With most of the country trapped indoors this weekend — thanks winter storm Jonas! — we can't think of a better time to get a jump start on planning your wedding. Instead of binge watching your favorite series on Netflix, settle in with some hot cocoa and soak up tons of love from real couple's celebrations on our real wedding video channel. Each week we've been spotlighting one of our favorite new couples, and this week we're taking you behind the scenes of Mehreen and Salman's multi-party affair in Torrey Pines, California.
Russell John Films joined this special couple for their Indian wedding at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines and captured the most epic moments of their different parties. Whether or not you're planning a cultural bash, there are tons of ideas you can take away from Mehreen and Salman. First and foremost, these two really know how to celebrate. So whether your heritage calls for planning multiple parties or you simply want to spread the love far and wide, consider keeping the festivities going longer than just one night.
We love how much effort Mehreen and Salman put into personalizing their day. From the groom's custom accessories and embroidered suit jacket to the bride's photo on her dad's cufflink and an engraved cake cutter, these two wanted to be sure their day was a true reflection of themselves as a couple. Another detail we love? How genuinely happy these newlyweds seem throughout each step of their wedding. From the pre-ceremony events and cultural traditions straight through their vows and reception, Mehreen and Salman are about as in love as any two people can be.
While planning several parties can be tough, this couple made it look all too easy — and even made sure each individual event feel like a unified part of the whole wedding. By using similar color palettes, flowers, and décor throughout their events, Mehreen and Salman planned a wedding that flowed perfectly from one bash to the next.
