Braja Mandala Photography has dazzled our wedding lovin' hearts with today's Desi wedding delight from Scottsdale, Arizona, and we're about to hit the newlyweds' post-ceremony highlights with some exquisite portraits and unforgettable reception moments! Blending elements from her desert hometown and her current urban address in the Big Apple, today's Indian bride created a southwest meets east coast marriage of charming decorative notes with the help of some little yellow taxi escort card holders and the perfect selection of succulents brought in by the Wendell Design Group Florist! With Jhakaas Entertainment starting the multi-day Indian wedding celebration off with their expert DJ and lighting skills at the sangeet, and now lending their support as sound specialists to make sure that DJUSA sounded their very best, everything from the pre-wedding festivities to this reception was a complete success! Make sure to see more of the spectacular highlights from Allisha and Akshit's dreamy desert wedding in the complete gallery!
Maharani Allisha, on her wedding style:
"When we first decided the wedding would be in Arizona, my hometown, my first thought was I wanted to incorporate NYC, where we live now, into the wedding. About half of our guests would be traveling from NYC, so I thought it would be a nice tribute to those traveling to show our appreciate for them. Also, I have also had a strange obsession with peacocks since I was about 13 years old, so I knew I wanted to have a reception that was peacock-themed. Luckily, I found a husband that would allow that to shine through."
On her and Akshit's first dance:
"I come from a dance background, and spent the last 3 years on a competitive Bhangra dance team from the Boston area. My husband and I decided we wanted have our slow song to "Gerua", and then surprise our guests with a Bhangra performance to the song, "Boli Pani". It was executed perfectly, even after practicing only an our before it was time."
See you tomorrow for an equally exquisite wedding event, Maharanis!
