When we say we think you’ll treasure Alina & Tushar’s beautiful L’Auberge Del Mar wedding, we know you will. Beautifully planned by Alina & Tushar alongside Korie Younger of Bliss Events, this elegant day was filled with warmth and details that will touch your heart— and we are SO excited to share it with you!
We first met Tushar & Alina nearly a year before their L’Auberge Del Mar wedding; an introduction that we treasured as we knew they were CK Dreamies from the moment we met. As we chatted, they told us how they had moved to New Zealand and back throughout their relationship, hiking along the bluffs and exploring so much of the world before circling back to the United States to begin the second chapter of their relationship.
Both incredibly talented, intelligent, and thoughtful people, Alina & Tushar had not only one incredible wedding, but two – the first being in India in honor of Tushar’s childhood growing up there. Their L’Auberge Del Mar wedding was the second wedding and it brought together their family and friends who had both been able to attend the wedding in India as well as those who hadn’t.
The day of the L’Auberge Del Mar wedding started off slowly. As Alina got ready alongside her mother with Natalie Rose Beauty, the Organic Elements team got to work dusting the venue with beautiful bright flowers and Korie and her team put the final touches to make sure everything would be perfect for the moment that Alina would walk down the aisle.
And when she did? It was perfect. Walking along a trail of flowers left by a particularly adorable flower girl, Tushar’s niece Myra, Alina seemingly floated down the aisle to Tushar. With nary a dry eye in the room, Tushar expounded on how he loved Alina’s tenacity towards all she accomplishes in life, while Alina joked that she would always walk ahead of him during hikes to assert her dominance (which we will admit made us laugh alongside their friends and family).
One little detail that we absolutely loved at this elegant L’Auberge Del Mar wedding, and couldn’t not share? The fact that every single table at the reception was named after different type of beans because of Alina’s childhood nickname that became their pet name for one another. Growing up, Alina’s mother used to call her Alini-beanie, which was shorted by her best friend & maid of honor to beanie; a name that Tushar adopted as he fell in love with her.
This little detail was expounded upon by Alina’s best friend during her toast, which we had the HARDEST time not tearing up behind our viewfinders for. During the toast, Alina’s best friend mentioned that it was fitting that they were Mr. & Mrs. Bean, as beans give back to the soil and promote the growth surrounding them just as Alina & Tushar do to everyone they love & know.
And that’s something that we can testify to; as we looked around through the reception of this L’Auberge Del Mar wedding during the toasts & speeches, there wasn’t a single person who wasn’t absolutely beaming with joy throughout the crowd. Surrounded by an aura of pure happiness & adoration radiating throughout the room, Alina and Tushar’s love that they gave to those around them is something that is returned in tenfold, and we perfectly understand why.
To Alina & Tushar; it is so evident to all that you are loved & cherished by those who surround you— and it is no question why. Your kindness, empathy, and patience for all who surround you is something to behold; it is not often that you find two people so willing to give, love, and listen to those around you.
Words cannot express how lucky we consider ourselves to have been able to walk alongside you on this journey, and that L’Auberge Del Mar pointed you to us; it has been such an incredible pleasure, and a true highlight of the last year. We know you’ll jump forth into this next chapter in life with as much warmth and joy as your last— and that this is the beginning to the most beautiful story for you two.
