We've seen lots of ceremonies, but I can't say we've ever seen an Indian wedding ceremony venue quite as large as an amphitheater! Maharani Sejal and Raja Amit are tying the proverbial knot at the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, where their planning and design team from Top That! Event has transformed the event stage into a Desi wedding dream! Making the Moment captured all the details from this sensational ceremony, plus some pre-wedding delights from the Indian bride and groom's first look photo shoot! Sejal dazzled in a red and white lengha, and Amit mastered his Princely look with an ivory sherwani. Note the blushing bride's stunning, gold haath phool, which was an especially significant piece of jewelry because her mother had worn it at her very own shaadi. There are plenty more breathtaking moments from this ceremony in the complete gallery, plus exclusive highlights from the groom's baraat and more first look photos! We'll be back with an enchanting post-ceremony soirée that will make your wedding-lovin' hearts melt!

Maharani Sejal, on her wedding style:

"When planning my wedding, I wanted to find a unique venue that encompassed both natural beauty and architecture. I was incredibly happy when we discovered the Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan - and only an hour away from home. This venue had hosted very few Indian weddings at that point, and I knew it would be something special for us and our guests.

Our Mandap was centered in a large outdoor amphitheater that was covered in beautiful late summer ivy. This amphitheater typically serves as a concert venue with artists such as Santana, John Legend, Sheryl Crow, performing there in the past. The mandap was everything that I had imagined! There was beautiful thick swagged fabric, a flower ganesh, a custom white staircase, and a carpet of rose petals on the floor, it was everything I wanted!"

On her most memorable wedding moment:

"When I was walking down the aisle in the Frederik Meijer Gardens Amphitheater and saw my mandap for the first time, I realized my dream wedding came true!"

On her bridal jewelry:

"One of the most special pieces of jewelry I wore was the haath phool for the ceremony; it was the one my mom wore during her wedding. It was so nice to be able to mix new and old jewelry pieces together for my bridal look."

Join me later today for a reception to remember, Maharanis!
