Pasadena Hindu Wedding l Shantel & Audel - PART I

Shantel's a lawyer and Audel's an engineer.  What a fabulous couple! When I met with Shantel and Audel for the first time, my thoughts were, they are going to take beautiful photos.  My meeting usually lasts an hour; however, when I finally realized the time, three hours had passed.  We connected right away and went right at it.  Shantel had everything laid out and ready to go.  This girl is a planner.  I'd love to hire her to work for me. She knew exactly what she wanted.  I really enjoyed working with Shantel and Audel.  They are such a lovely couple.  I wish them much happiness in the years to come!
There was so much going on at this wedding that I'd like to break it down into three parts. 
Part I:  The Hindu Wedding Ceremony
Part II: The Traditional "White Dress" Ceremony
Part III The Wedding Reception at Madame Tussauds
In one wedding, we went from India Style to Hollywood Style!  You gotta love it!
