We're still feeling the excitement from Monica and Mrunal's garba earlier today, where Medley Entertainment made an unforgettable appearance and Wedding Design delivered the most delightful pre-wedding decor, but now we're switching gears with our foray into the happy couple's big day, and these first look photos by KSD Weddings are everything we've been needing in our lives. Today's blushing Indian bride is all kinds of lovely in a traditional red, white, green and gold lengha, which the Raja of her dream helped her pick out (kind of...)! Nothing can stand in the way of Monica and Mrunal's trip to the mandap, which is coming up next, not even a wild group of bridesmaids and groomsmen! We're pretty sure Swat Films came away with some stunning first look moments for their film, and will be sure to share them with you once we get our hands on them! For now, head into the complete gallery for more first look fun before visiting the Platinum Guide Blog for an exclusive look at Maharani Monica getting ready!

Maharani Monica, on her and Raja Mrunal's engagement:

"Our proposal wasn't as romantic or traditionally flashy as most people but that's what I love about it. I asked Mrunal to come over to PA to take some nice photos with our friend who is a photographer. He agreed and we went through the entire day in a state park doing photos. Towards the end, as the sun was setting, Mrunal bent down on one knee and proposed! I had no idea and for us, it was super romantic and intimate. Of course our friend got the whole thing in video and photo!"

On shopping for her wedding lengha(s):

"My outfits were mostly his choices. I'd try them on, anything that wasn't too flashy and if I saw an expression on his face that said, "wow" it was the winner. There isn't much that gets him that way except for when he sees me every morning (that's what he says even when I have horrible bed hair)."
