We're thinking the best way to jump-start this Thursday is with some incredibly dreamy pre-wedding highlights, and luckily, Banga Studios just shared some with us! The talented photographers recently shot Sikh bride and groom, Ashley and Sabeer's, wedding celebration in Winnipeg, and the happy couple ushered in their main event with a captivating collection of ceremonies to start their multi-day event! From the mehndi portraits to their sangeet, the happy pair honored tradition in true Maharani style. Winnipeg Henna delivered some mehndi-rific marvels to today's Indian bride, who dazzled in a bright blush-colored lengha for her sangeet at the Punjab Cultural Center. We love the playful photos Ashley and Raja Sabeer posed for and we can't wait to get our hands on some of the film highlights that Michael J. Scott Productions captured! For now, we'll be relishing in all these breathtaking images, plus even more, in the complete gallery!

Maharani Ashley, on meeting the Raja of her dreams, Sabeer:

"We were set up on a blind date, the first one of my life! We were supposed to go for coffee, but ended up switching it to lunch. On our first date we ended up chatting for hours! It was fantastic, and I guess we just "clicked". There wasn't one specific moment that made me think he was "the one", it was more of an understanding that we just fit together and he's the one I wanted in my life."

Check back later today for some striking highlights of the happy couple getting ready for their big day!
