Komal and Shalin’s Destination Wedding in Laguna Niguel
A moving, gorgeous wedding film (with a surprise serenade by Bollywood star, Aditya Narayan) created from moments at the stunning, luxury California wedding hosted by Kenny Desai for his daughter Komal.
Pacific Pictures ‘s Kevin Shahinian takes us inside the stunning celebration of Komal and Shalin’s four-day destination wedding at the beaches of Laguna Niguel in Southern California in this beautifully shot video capturing every detail of this glamorous bash.
The celebration begins with the beautiful bride, running along the beach, a father’s words echoing softly, expressing the love a parent has for his child and the bittersweet emotions of seeing them find the love of their lives. We watch a pastel-hued mehndi overlooking the Pacific Ocean from the cliffs of the Montage Resort. Friends and family from the world over are welcomed by a breathtaking California sunset before a moonlit evening of performances and Bollywood dancing.
We peek in quietly, as Shalin shares a precious private pre-wedding moment with his bride, Komal, presenting her with an album full of special little memories and a heartfelt letter telling her what she means to him.
The film follows the couple as they get ready for their grand Hindu wedding ceremony in the opulent outdoor courtyard of the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Monarch Beach, California, USA.
Then the newlyweds host a star-studded sangeet featuring a surprise performance by Bollywood singer Aditya Narayan who flew in especially from India. Flashes of the week’s festivities crescendo with a chic candlelit reception, emotions running high as friends and family share funny, happy and really touching anecdotes. And then, there’s that flash-mob style first dance!
