Welcome to Nisha and Neel's modern and sleek Indian wedding reception at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Virginia. Dharma Events decorates the room with contemporary-style centerpieces and a picture-perfect sweetheart stage. Minimalistic and elegant are the two words that come to mind when examining every stunning detail! Mari Harsan Studios catches up with our newlyweds on the floor dancing to the beats of Planet DJ Productions under the colorful lights of Planet DJ Event Lighting. In between toasts and performances, guests were treated to a delightful meal courtesy of IndAroma, and for dessert, a delicious four-tier cake by Edibles Incredible. Hats off to Dream Shaadi for planning all the magnificent details, which you can see all of in the gallery!

From the bride, on a special moment:

"The time after the wedding (before the reception), after Neel and I had changed into our reception attire and the photographers went downstairs to join the event. Neel and I sat in chairs about 10ft apart and just closed our eyes. We didn't say one word to each other but just sat in complete silence. It doesn't sound all that magical, but it felt completely magical. It was the first time Neel and I were alone in days. It all began to feel real that we were finally going to spend the rest of our lives together."

On the first dance:

"We entirely forget how or when "We Found Love" by Rihanna became "our" song. But through the years of dating, we would constantly Snapchat or texted one another when we heard it. We even had some friends and family snapchat or text us the song reminding us of our relationship. Of course the song is more of an upbeat and not a typical first dance song. We consulted with Aditya Rao, who would be singing our first dance song live. He assured us that he would be able to sing a slower version of it. It was definitely magical, Aditya put on a show."

Hope you enjoyed this wedding as much as I did! See ya next time, gals!
