The St. Regis Monarch Beach Sangeet | Sridhar & Sunitha

Please enjoy this gorgeous The St. Regis Monarch Beach Sangeet featuring Sridhar & Sunitha.

A big thank you to Jeannie Savage and Samantha Farris of Details Details Weddings & Events for organizing this beautiful event.

Also, be sure to follow us on our Facebook Page for updates and the latest with LJP!

We wanted our images to look vintage and airy, focusing on intimate moments between the soon to be newlyweds. The soft natural light coming in through the trees was all we needed to illuminate our scene. The rich green foliage provided the perfect contrast to Sunitha’s electric coral lips & pink ghagra.

Shawna Yamamoto worked her magic over and over again throughout this stunning wedding – her creativity was overflowing with detail and beauty. This flower wall inundated with vibrant corals, yellows, reds, and pinks served as the perfect backdrop for group shots. Inspired by the peony wall that Kim & Kanye West had at their wedding, this backdrop was an outright showstopper at the Sangeet.

Raj Tents provided these stunning Middle Eastern inspired tents housing guests for the evening. Decorated with Morrocan lamps, striking floral arrangements from Shawna Yamamoto, and varied vases and candles to set the mood – these tents only enhanced the beauty that the St. Regis Monarch Beach had to offer.

Amit from 3D Sounds always knows how to get a party started. Everyone was up on their feet celebrating the soon to be newlyweds and getting a head start for the wedding and reception the following day.

The night literally ended with a bang thanks to the amazing firework display orchestrated by Pyro Spectaculars! Saying this image was a challenge would be a massive understatement. Attempting to balance the exposure of the bride/groom with the background fireworks, all while trying to pose our couple, get the right expression, time it with the right burst of fireworks, and do it all before the show ends.

It’s moments like this when I am so grateful to be surrounded by such an incredible team. They came together like clockwork to help pull off this shot in an incredibly quick and fleeting moment.

With all the pyrotechnics involved in this Sangeet, it only felt natural to add Sparklers into the mix. Sunitha & Sridhar exited their Sangeet in style as their friends and family guided them with lit sparklers creating this beautiful image below.


You two share a genuine love and sincere relationship that is absolutely infectious. On top of that, you are both so kind and loving to those around you. You make those that around you (family, friends and strangers) feel as though they are the most important thing in your mind.
