We're back to see all the amazing first look portraits Sameer Soorma Studios took of our charming Pakistani bride and groom! Our Maharani was ready to meet her handsome Raja with dazzling hair and makeup by Ahseia Aadina! We especially loved her marvelous curled updo! Our Pakistani groom also looked his best, wearing a gold sherwani and a red pagri to perfectly match with his bride! We hope that Sameer Soorma Studios' video of this magnificent Pakistani wedding shows the exact moment the lovebirds first see each other, because after looking at these portraits we can't imagine anything sweeter! While we wait to see that and Jhakaas Entertainment at the baraat, we'll be checking out all the fabulous photos in the full gallery!
Maharani Neekta on her favorite part of wedding planning:
"I loved getting in touch with my culture and sharing it with my husband. He had never experienced a weeklong Desi wedding before and had no idea what to expect, but ended up loving every minute of it! At the end of it all, after almost a dozen events, we still didn't feel like we had enough. Rather than planning just one event, we were able to plan a memorable week for our loved ones. They were welcomed with customized bags filled with a packed schedule for the upcoming week and personal goodies that had special meaning to us. We shared every meal, every morning and night and every special moment with the beautiful collection of friends and families who were there with us. We really enjoyed planning special surprises for our guests -- brunches, a musical evening at my parents' home, a dance performance by me, traditional tabla and sitar players, an outdoor mehndi event -- and seeing all of the surprises executed so beautifully."
On the most magical moments of the wedding:
"We could not believe that so many of our dear friends and family members flew in from every part of the world. Many guests later told me they had never attended a wedding that incorporated so many friends into the events. From dances, to speeches, to pictures, every moment felt so incredibly natural to Adeel and I because we were surrounded by our favorite people. The bouquet toss, the rukhsati, the meals, were all incredibly special just because of the good company we were blessed to have."
We're sharing the spectacular nikah, up next!
