Welcome back, dolls! We're heading back to the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, where Abhishek Decorators has transformed the ceremony space into the most divinely decorated dream a Maharani could ask for! The mandap and wedding stage are decked out just gorgeously in the most incredible Indian wedding decorations, the aisle is flanked with romantic red roses and tea lights twinkle in the backdrop — beautiful! Pandya Photography captured everything from Raja Amit's baraat procession to the moment that the happy couple celebrate in officially becoming husband and wife! Both our Indian bride and groom look like a million bucks in their traditional wedding day wears. Our bride, Melissa, is dazzling in her champagne-colored lengha, her golden jewels the cherry on top of her fashionably fabulous sundae! Amit is dashing as ever in his coordinating sherwani, and he is spreading his infectiously amazing energy in his baraat photos! To see even more of those, plus extra details from the ceremony itself, you'll have to check out the complete gallery!
The bride, on her Raja's baraat:
"For the Baraat, we decided on a horse & carriage. After spending time shopping for the perfect outfit and getting ready, Amit didn't want to have to sit uncomfortably still on a horse. The carriage allowed him to dance freely and have his cousin & nieces with him. We also did not want the DJ to play music out of the typical white vans you often see. Instead, we rented an open bed pickup truck and had the DJ live mixing on top of it!"
On her most memorable wedding day moment:
"Right before the Milni, I could see Amit looking around trying to find me. A hundred emotions were running through me, but as soon as our eyes met, all of the nervousness and anxiety faded. Looking back at the video, there was so much noise from the music and drums, but all I remember at that time was walking towards Amit with his eyes locked on me. The cherry on top was when he kissed my forehead after I put the garland on him!"
It's time to celebrate, Maharanis! The reception of a lifetime is coming up next!
