The multi-talented Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema unveils a spectacular Indian fusion wedding wonder coming to us from right here in Northern California! Before we take you to the nuptials where Vintage Carriage Company kicks off the baraat, we are going to give you a peek at our gorgeous bride getting ready for her big day. All dolled by hair and makeup maven Laenka By Myrium, Maharani Sipra looks amazing! Shimmering gold and beige-toned shadows accentuate her pretty, brown eyes and a cabernet red lip provides a bold and sultry finish. And, she truly could not have picked a more fitting collection of gold jewels. Her gold necklace is a perfect match to the embroidered border of her red lengha choli—by Vama Designs. Our bride-to-be is alluring from head to (mehndi'd) toe! We've only begun to show you all the pop and pizzazz of Sipra and Kevin's fusion affair, including mouthwatering treats by Madhuban Indian Cuisine, but meanwhile, browse the gallery to see this couple's first look photo session!
From the bride, on how they met:
"I met Kevin in July 2011, one month after I moved to San Francisco. I was not looking for a relationship at the time as I had just moved and was focused on my new job and making friends in a new city. I went to watch the Women's World Cup Soccer Final with a friend who had also invited some other friends, one of them being Kevin. He mentioned he had lived in St. Louis and that he played tennis and caught my attention as my hometown is St. Louis and I grew up playing a lot of tennis! The next day he messaged me on Facebook and asked me to play tennis and that's how it all started!
On how she knew he was the one:
"I knew he was the one by the way I could not stop smiling and laughing when we were together. He is kind, genuine, and one of the most positive people I know. I could be 100% myself and he loved me just the same. I also love traveling and have lived in 3 continents so he had to pass one more test: was he a good travel partner? We took our first international trip to Cambodia and Thailand and he passed the test with flying colors and I knew he was the one."
