We could not be more excited to share this next wedding with our MHW readers. Rachna and Vik’s wedding is a feast for the eyes AND the heart – so full of joyful traditions, exquisite colors, family and friends celebrating with unfettered happiness – well, we wanted to dance in the streets, just like the guests!
Searching for a setting for the perfect luxury/casual beach wedding? Look no further than Shutters on the Beach in sunny Santa Monica, CA. Just outside of L.A., Santa Monica is a lovely city where you can shop, dine, and beach with the bronzed and the beautiful. But Santa Monica is not a tourist trap like Hollywood. It’s an upscale residential neighborhood with luxury to spare.
Being at Shutters is like hanging out in a luxury beach house. It’s casual tone and laid-back atmosphere belie its luxurious amenities – world-class dining, pampering spa and fitness facilities, and of course, access to the ocean from your back door.
“Elegant Fairy Tale Wedding” – until now, a rare species. Not too saccharine, not too juvenile, not too staged, the elegant fairy tale wedding transports us to a timeless magical place where beauty meets fantasy.

Just look:
YOU LITERALLY HAVE TO TAKE A HORSE-DRAWN CARRIAGE TO GET HERE.

Isn’t this what you fantasize about when you imagine “walking down the aisle”?
