Welcome back, Maharanis! As promised, I'm back with some spectacular wedding details from our adorable Rhode Island couple, Bijal and Amish. The ceremony venue has been decked out by Design House Decor with the sweetest florals and design details imagined by the talented team at Sonal J. Shah Event Consultants- a true win/win wedding team of vendors. The cherry blossoms at the altar are so perfectly pink and princess appropriate. All of these breathtakingly stunning images by Salwa Photography really capture the spirit and style of our lovely bride's wedding ceremony. I made sure to incorporate some shots of just the floral and decor so you can really appreciate the look of it all. Make your way to the gallery for even more from this luscious event.
The bride on her wedding style:
"I always knew that I wanted fresh flowers and the wedding to have a very romantic feel to it.
I wanted the mandap to be more modern/floral rather than have the traditional Indian touches to it (because everything else would be very traditional Indian). And my favorite color is PINK, so I knew I wanted to focus on that color without it being too overwhelming - so with our decorators, we went with soft pinks, creams, golds, etc.. My bridal bouquet was a mix of the creams, pinks and the maroon/red that was in my panetaar - so it pulled together all aspects."
On shopping for her lengha:
"We went shopping in India.
Ganesh Pooja sari - G3 in Surat, Gujarat
Mendhi Salwaar - designed by a friend's mom
Grah Shanti Saree - Friendship in Bombay
Garba Chaniya Choli - Paris in Surat
Wedding Panetaar/Saree - Benzer in Bombay
Reception Lengha - Kalki in Bombay
I did spend a decent amount of time on the internet - but I learned very quickly that when you are actually doing the shopping, you have to let go of everything you thought you would be able to find and just have to go with the flow. For example, I always thought (for years) that my reception lengha would be fuschia or magenta pink - and it ended up being all white. You just never know!"
I'll be back with our bride as she gets dolled up for her reception, so stick around!
