Guests have settled into their seats at Shafohi and Vinayak's outdoor wedding ceremony at Patrick Haley Mansion, and are anticipating some of the most heartfelt and captivating moments they'll ever see. Lucky for us, we're getting a first row experience via these incredible highlights captured by WASIO Photography! Our blushing Indian bride dazzled, turning heads as she made her way down the aisle in a coral-colored wedding lengha from Studio East6 and met up with Raja Vinayak, who was exceptionally handsome in his black tux with white dinner jacket (we love that piping!) and bow tie, at the altar. Maharani Shafohi's hair and makeup were picture perfect, and the happy couple have managed to steal our hearts with each and every frame. We also got an exclusive look at some wedding day's first look photos from before the ceremony, and you can see all of those in the complete gallery!
Maharani Shafohi on her wedding style:
"Wedding style was like 16th century royalty set in a Victorian mansion. When I sat down to really figure out what our dream wedding would look like, we started with the theme of 16th century royalty, over the top, epic adventure in mind. I was inspired by TV shows Royals and Reign. I wanted bright colors and the settings/location to be a unique experience in of itself. With that in mind, we looked at 50 different venues to find the perfect venue that is extremely unique and reflect us as a couple. We both enjoy history so that played a central theme in our wedding."
On her venue:
"The venue was one of the highlights of the wedding, very different from the usual banquet hall, the three story mansion provided ample entertainment and a walk down the path of history."
On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:
"I became close to friends and family who we don't see on a regular basis due to distance and lifestyles. The wedding planning was a great way to re-connect with family member and friends I used to be close with during pivotal parts of my life. Their care, love, and support was amazing as people from all over the world stepped in to offer support and help during the wedding planning process."
