Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel Wedding, Part Two | Nikhil and Tracy
Welcome to Part Two of Nikhil and Tracy’s wedding at Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel!
After their traditional Indian ceremony on day one, Nikhil and Tracy dressed in a spiffy tuxedo and gorgeous Lazaro gown for day two of their glamorous wedding weekend… and we are in LOVE with both of their amazing wedding looks! (If you haven’t already seen Part One of their wedding, go check out their colorful first day right now!)
Their families mean the world to these two, and after a year like 2020, it was even more meaningful to share such a special day with their favorite people.
In fact, Nikhil and Tracy told us later that they wanted to forever remember the sheer joy that their guests had in coming together to celebrate them. And celebrate, they did.
It was so clear how proud everyone was to be part of their day – His precious mother was beaming from ear-to-ear all weekend long, and Nikhil’s sweet dad shared a few tears in his speech, and constantly was by his side to support and attend to him.
Nikhil’s friends highlighted over and over again how he is a guy who is always there for you no matter what – he’ll never hesitate to drop what he’s doing to help you out.
And Tracy’s girls spent time each sharing words about her as they prepared for the day, and couldn’t help but gush about how kind and loyal and irreplaceable she is as a friend.
After their beautiful vows at the ceremony, Nikhil and Tracy went down to the beach with us to enjoy a calm moment together at sunset… and right then, everything felt at peace.
And it all felt so, so worth it.
I would be remiss to mention Gina and her team at Pure Lavish Events did in executing every detail. They pulled off this weekend without a hitch and served this couple with such heart – we’ve always had so much love and respect for planners, but after 2020, our admiration is through the roof! (See the full list of wedding vendors at the bottom of this post!)
Nikhil and Tracy incorporated so many fun personal touches into their wedding day: Each table was themed with a city where they had traveled to together, and they ended the night with a California classic: an In-n-Out Burger truck! And OH MY GOODNESS! You have to check out their AMAZING elephant ice sculpture… it was just too good.
I’m simply in LOVE with this wedding, my friends. Go dive into alllll the beauty there is to behold!
Nikhil and Tracy: Oh my oh my oh myyy!! Can we go back and do it all again? Your wedding weekend was one of the brightest spots in 2020 for us – it was a privilege to share in the joy with you! Your hearts are beautifully aligned with what matters most, and it was such a deeply meaningful experience for Jeff and me. Sending you all the love!
