Laura and Ben

Filipino, Indian, American Fusion

Laura and Ben captured the essence of both their Indian and Filipino heritages in their American-style wedding at Estancia La Jolla. The festivities began with a traditional Indian Baraat, or joyful procession of the groom and his family through the hotel grounds, accompanied by a drummer. To embrace Laura’s Filipino traditions, a veil covered both the bride and groom during the ceremony, and they also exchanged coins to symbolize their mutual support of each other, their future children, and the community. The guests enjoyed tote bag favors, the sounds of an all-female folk-rock band during the reception, and a delicious dessert table with custom cake toppers to portray the couple.
