Destination weddings have a charm of their own, and when it comes to South Asian celebrations, the magic is truly unparalleled. And Angel and Gautam’s wedding at the stunning Planet Hollywood Cancun was no exception.
This picturesque destination served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding week, bringing together their love for each other, their friends and family with a touch of paradise. Read on to learn the details of this beautiful wedding and get key takeaways that you can use for your own.
Angel and Gautam’s wedding journey began with deciding on their destination. Working with our talented team, they settled on Mexico and from there we advised that they consider Planet Hollywood Cancun. Located in Costa Mujeres, just 40 minutes north of Cancun, it offers the perfect blend of tranquility and proximity to the vibrant nightlife of Cancun.
With its array of amenities, including the Sutra Indian Restaurant & Hookah Lounge, the resort catered to the couple’s desire for authentic South Asian cuisine and an unforgettable dining experience. Additionally, the resort’s family-friendly offerings, such as a waterpark, mini-golf, Star Kids Club, and a rejuvenating spa, ensured that all guests were immersed in unparalleled luxury and enjoyment.
Our amazing clients worked with Federico Salmeron for the photography for their wedding. Federico’s work is a favorite among our clients for his ability to capture emotional, authentic moments in weddings that add dimension to wedding album portraits. His work is always vibrant and captures the love between couples in a special way.
When thinking about which photographer to select for your own wedding, ensure that the one you choose has ample experience with South Asian weddings. Do they know about the different customs and which wedding moments are especially important to capture? Have they handled weddings that are especially large? Do they have a variety of sample wedding albums to show you? These are all important things to consider that can help you determine whether a photographer is right for your future wedding.
Angel and Gautam also worked with Saptapadi Weddings who handled all of the videography for the events. Saptapadi Weddings is renowned for their expertise in documenting South Asian weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean. They create a cinematic masterpiece for every wedding they capture.
Through their artful storytelling, Saptapadi Weddings brilliantly conveyed the emotions, and intricate details that unfolded throughout Angel and Gautam’s wedding week. Their work ensured that every cherished moment was preserved, allowing the couple to relive their special day for years to come.
As you consider a videography team for your wedding, consider interviewing several before choosing one. Ask for referrals from those you love and be sure to ask if they have done videography at the venue you are considering. This will ensure that they will work well with the resort you select and will be well-acquainted with its layout.
Crispin Beauty, known for their expertise in bridal hair and makeup, played a crucial role in enhancing Angel’s natural beauty. With their skillful hands and attention to detail, they crafted a stunning look that perfectly complemented Angel’s features and personal style.
Crispin Beauty’s ability to create flawless and radiant looks ensured that Angel exuded grace and elegance on her wedding day, making her feel like the most beautiful bride.
As you consider makeup artists for your wedding, ensure that the artist is able to provide their own suggestions for your wedding makeup while also listening closely to your own vision. A good artist will take the time to listen to you and offer additional ideas that will take your look to the next level.
The Sikh Center played a pivotal role in executing the ceremony and providing the traditional dhol beats that filled the air with infectious energy.
As you consider your wedding plans, ensure that you are clear on the vision you have for your ceremony and other wedding events. You want to make sure that the person who executes your ceremony understands what you have in mind and will work with you to include any special elements that are meaningful to you.
The ambiance throughout Angel and Gautam’s wedding was nothing short of enchanting. For their Sikh ceremony, held indoors, a magnificent mandap took center stage. Adorned with an abundance of white flowers and delicate draping, it created an ethereal atmosphere that perfectly captured the significance of the occasion.
It was all thanks to floral pros, Tulipania, to create an elegant atmosphere for each of their wedding events. This team crafted awe-inspiring arrangements that elevated the decor and added a touch of natural splendor. The decor for their ceremony and reception exuded elegance and sophistication. Delicate white, cream, and pink flowers adorned every corner, making the ballroom feel like a beautiful garden.
From their haldi, sangeet and baraat, to their ceremony and first dance as husband and wife (complete with sparklers igniting behind the couple!), Angel and Gautam had a dream wedding filled with heart-warming moments. The couple’s meticulous planning, combined with the expertise of talented vendors and the allure of the resort, resulted in a wedding that will forever be etched in their hearts and the memories of their loved ones.
