Julia Morgan Ballroom Wedding Photography | Rupa and Pavan

Rupa and Pavan’s traditional Indian wedding was so incredibly vibrant and full of energy! The day started with a baraat, a parade of friends and family singing and dancing Pavan through downtown San Francisco to the Julia Morgan Ballroom. Rupa was stunning in her ruby-colored sari, and she glowed as she walked down the aisle.  We especially loved their traditional first look and watching excitement build as they waited for the sheet to drop. Rupa and Pavan’s ceremony was a celebration of their cultural heritage, and we can’t wait to see what new traditions they’ll make together as newlyweds.

Instead of a single traditional floral centerpiece on all the tables, Rupa and Pavan chose a cluster of florals and candles on some tables and these striking gold manzanita trees on others.

Rupa and Pavan’s parents’ speeches were hilarious.
