Wedding coordinator Nikki Khan from Exquisite Events is the premiere designer of authentic Indian weddings in Southern California and she’s here today at Mindy’s Most Ridiculous Wedding Event Ever 2! Drawing on her heritage and extraordinary eye for beauty, Niki creates one-of-a-kind events that inspire, delight, and exceed expectations. Below are just a few of the images Nikki showed us as she talked about the incredibly personalized weddings she creates with and for her clients.
The ceremony area of this Sikh wedding below was inspired by the soft colors of summer. Peach and blush florals were set against aqua linens underneath a gorgeous tent from Raj Tents. The Mandap where the couple was married became their sweetheart table during the reception. (Images by John Solano)
Below, pictures show the Sangeet, a traditional Indian party hosted by the bride’s parents. The bride wanted a Moraccan feel to her event, so Niki incorporated Mediterranean food, a hookah lounge and Moroccan tea stations. The gorgeous lighting by ELS set the stage for the spectacular ambiance. (Images by John Solano)

Indian weddings are so beautiful! I love the color. I love the movement. I love the fun. I love the celebrating of both families. And of course I love the groom arriving on a elephant or white horse. Just fabulous!
Nikki is amazing! So incredibly talented and just an exceptional woman and the images are captured so beautifully. The contemporary rose/orchid arrangements by tic-tock are some of my favorite that I’ve seen all year and the blanket of roses in the first image (not sure who did it) is gorgeous!
Gorgeous!! I love all the colors, costuming, from tradition to modern; I Nikki knows her stuff, and is a true professional specializing in the unique and exotic!!
