Happy Monday, Maharanis! With only four days left until the most epic gift-giving holiday of the year, we are stuffing your virtual stockings with some of the most exciting South Asian weddings! We wanted to start spreading the wondrous wedding cheer with this extraordinary celebration in Long Beach, California, planned and designed by the incredibly talented team at Sheer Romance — and there's no better way to do it than through these gorgeous images captured by Aaron Tsai of Aaroneye Photography! We're kicking off the event with a look at the blushing Indian bride, Aditi, as she gets ready to wed the Raja of her dreams, Manish, in an outdoor ceremony at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach. Hair and makeup expert, Henna Dil Se, styled her to perfection with a charming updo and enhanced her natural beauty with perfectly lined and shadowed eyes and a pomegranate red lip. Dressed in an ivory, crimson and gold bridal lengha complemented by a stunning jewelry set with eye-catching hints of green, Maharani Aditi is ready to reveal her ceremony look to her hubby-to-be! We'll check out their romantic first look portrait session next, but before we do that, head into the complete inspiration gallery for an exclusive sneak peek at the pre-wedding festivities and what's still to come — including an out-of-this-world reception later today featuring Special Occasions DJ & Lighting!
Meet me back here in a bit for some spellbinding portraits and a glimpse at the ceremony decor!
