Luxury Cultural Fusion Wedding in San Diego

Brianna Kozlarek / Wednesday March 1, 2017

Having met in San Diego in 2006, it only made sense for Shea and Neha to tie the knot in San Diego one decade later. It was at a rooftop bar in New York City on Neha’s birthday when Shea finally popped the question. Of course, Neha said yes and he then whisked her away for a celebratory weekend with family in Chicago. Inspired by warm California sunshine, Shea and Neha wanted to bring all of their friends and family together a fusion wedding that blended Indian and Western wedding traditions. From the intimate welcome dinner to the romantic ceremony all the way to the spectacular reception, Shea and Neha certainly got their dream wedding working with Nahid’s Global Events to design and plan their special day. In order to stick to their budget, Neha decided to DIY the bridal party’s bouquets of large succulents with their tips painted gold. It was simple to do and matched their wedding theme perfectly. Callaway Gable captured all the magic:

The pair shared some advice for other couples who are planning their wedding: “It’s all worth it even though planning IS stressful. Even if you want to get everything done well ahead of time, the important details can’t happen until the week or two before. Just have faith!” shares Neha.
