Words will not do justice to Natasha and Amit’s sumptuous soiree at Lander’s Center, but we’re going to give it a shot anyway! The show belonged to K.I. Weddings through and through, but it would not have been possible without AV’s room soft uplighting, stage wash, spot lights, and a myriad of elements that had the ballroom gleaming. Prashe Decor did not leave a single corner of Lander’s Center undecorated, going from judicious to unrestrained wherever required. Black, white, and gold dictated the color scheme. A gold display of three panels took center stage against a metallic black drop, while gold shadow boxes with candles were suspended from the ceiling. The champagne sequin and ivory linens thoroughly complemented the glint from the crystals and floating candles. From iced brownies to custom cupcakes, the lavish banquet was reminiscent of a Vegas buffet spread. Natasha donned a black contemporary lehenga that was sprinkled with beads and sequins, paired with a crop top-esque glittering black blouse. Ishnae & Co gave her the perfect messy bun, and the winged eyeliner was just the right touch. DJ Prashant turned the party up a notch with his Bollywood beats and contemporary mixes, leaving the guests glued to the dance floor! Watch the entertainment unfold by visiting the gallery!
That was one blockbuster of a wedding, right? Just the right segue into the last weekend of 2016, but don’t leave yet, because we had an awesome chat with Natasha who spilled the beans on the behind-the-scenes. Here goes:
How did you meet your Raja and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Amit at my sisters wedding, my sister Alisha and Amit had been really close friends for years. She was so anxious to introduce us, but I was so eager to meet this one guy I saw and I kept telling my sister. Finally, while I was on stage I pointed him out to my sister and she goes "Natasha, that's Amit, that's my friend, the guy I've been wanting you to meet!"
Do you have a super romantic proposal story or engagement memory?
Amit, my sister, brother in law and little brother all went to San Diego! Amit isn't the romantic type, nor am I, but this one day during sunset he wanted to go walk on the beach. So I said sure let's go, everyone else stood on the side and just watched there sunset. Amit is a huge singer so he started singing marry me, by Jason Derulo. He then got on one knee.
What did you enjoy most about the process of planning your dream Indian wedding?
I loved getting to plan everything from starting to end with my mom. That's been my childhood dream, and if it wasn't for my mom and dad this wedding wouldn't have been as amazing. I have them to thank for everything.
Looking back, was there a really special moment that you remember from your wedding that stands out as the most magical?
When both my parents took my hand and said, "this is it, we can walk down the aisle, or run the other way!"
Did family or friends help out with certain special details that really added to the event?
All my friends and family did so much! So greatly thankful for them. My brother in law was the main one to do literally everything. If it wasn't for him, nothing would have got done. He literally worked his butt off, to make everything perfect. He was the real MVP.
