It's time for today's Indian bride and groom to celebrate their newly minted union with their lucky guests at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, where Premier Entertainment is getting the reception party started. Abhishek Decorators has pulled all the stops and gone above and beyond for this amazing affair with some seriously inspiring floral and decor work. Maharani Melissa is rocking the most divine, cream-colored reception lengha with violet and aqua accents, and she's let her hair down. Her Raja, Amit, is looking dreamy in his tailored, black tuxedo and coordinating bow tie. Pandya Photography captured the evening's memorable moments brilliantly, from the first dance to the sensational celebration in full swing! After burning a few calories, the happy couple cut into the most incredible-looking wedding cake, created by The Cakery Bake Shop, and we wouldn't mind a slice! Head into the complete gallery for all the fabulous details from this Indian wedding event you'll need to keep you inspired all week long!
The bride, on her reception hair and makeup:
"For the reception, I went for a more "free" style with loose open curls. In terms of make-up, I mostly went for the natural airbrushed look with pops of color either on the lips or eyes."
On their wedding cakes:
"We decided to have the main wedding cake, along with two side cakes - one of each of our parents. The idea behind this was that it was not just Amit & I getting married, but that it was truly two families coming together. We wouldn't have gotten to where we are today without our parents, and we felt that this was a great way to recognize and celebrate them!"
On a special surprise from her father:
"During my parents' speech, my dad surprised us with a Sand Art video. He had worked with an artist in Singapore to re-create our love story from the time we met, to our first date, all the way to our Wedding day!"
Have a splendid rest of the day, Maharanis! We'll see you again tomorrow!
