Sana and Pedro were married at the Arbor Terrace of the Grand Tradition Estate in Fallbrook, California. Sana is of Pakistani descent, and Pedro’s heritage is Mexican. Each commemorated their respective cultures with traditional attire, ethnic music and special customs. As you’ll see in the photos below, the result was a wedding bursting with life and color.
During the wedding, Sana wore a colorful gharara by Nomi Ansari . She was decorated with lavish embellishments and intricate henna tatoos by Henna Trendz. Oh ya, and some Jimmy Choo shoes ;)
Pedro wore a traditional Pakistani sherwani for the ceremony, and surprised the guests when he switched into a Mariachi outfit for the reception. They were even accompanied by a Mariachi band for the grand entrance… Ole!
The ceremony and reception sites were decked out to the max, featuring beautiful red roses and elaborate décor by Finishing Touch Wedding Design. To ensure a lively reception, the band stuck around throughout dinner, and even took special requests. We hope you enjoy these highlights from this special day.
We love it when couples are adventurous, and are up for unusual photo ideas! San and Pedro were a ton of fun!
As we crossed the bridge, we happened to see a rose lying on the ground. We thought it was the perfect prop to depict these two cultures coming together. What a fun shot!
We’re always using our surroundings to help tell the story of the day. The members of the Mariachi Band were more than willing to step in for this photo.
This low-angle shot shows the abundance of red roses, which were present throughout the wedding.
By staying as alert as possible for any photographic opportunity, we are able to anticipate the action, and capture instantaneous moments that are over in a flash.
Big congratulations to this fun and happy couple!
