Houston, TX Indian Christian Wedding by Sculpting With Time Productions

You'll find it hard not to reach for the Kleenex in this final film of the day by Sculpting With Time Productions. As the bride and groom read aloud the handwritten letters they received from one another, and exchange their vows in a most romantic Catholic wedding ceremony at the Holy Family Catholic Church in Houston, you'll find yourself head-tilting and "aw"-ing. This pretty and petite Maharani rocks a beautiful lace wedding gown, and has been beautified to perfection by makeup artists from Blush and Glow. After she goes from blushing bride to married Maharani, the party officially gets started at Safari Texas, where Prashe has done up the celebration space from top to bottom in some of the most stunning floral and decor you've ever seen. The bride called on Design to help plan her big day, and now she can leave the details to the pros and focus on getting down with her glamorous guests to the head-bopping beats spun by DJ Yogi of Yogi-G Entertainment. After a few calories have been burned off on the dance floor, it's safe to say everyone has earned a slice of the spectacular wedding cake created by Julies Cakes.

After she and the Raja of her dreams make it official, it's time for them to get the party started at the The Westin Lombard, where their reception awaits them and their eager guests. This entire celebration was expertly and gorgeously planned by Parita at Oliveaire, who helped the lucky bride realize the day of her dreams.

Cedar Grove, New Jersey Indian Wedding by Pandya Photography

Pandya Photography now takes us to the elegant Indian reception which takes place inside the luxurious ballroom of The Grove NJ. I am loving the vast space, and those massive chandeliers leave me breathless! The fuchsia floral centerpieces by the one and only Rangoli Weddings are so dainty and elegant. The sweetheart stage looks gorgeous under the sea of cascading drapes that sparkle. Perhaps what shines most is Maharani Sweta, in bold makeup by Style by Susmitaas she dances the night away in her pink and fuchsia lengha. The lucky guests got to dine on scrumptious Indian cuisine by Bukhara Grill and for dessert, is the lovely wedding cake by Palermo Bakery. I hear DJ Sunny Entertainment brought the house down with bass-pumping party beats. See every amazing detail of this day in the gallery!

From the bride, on the first dance:

"Our first dance was the moment I was most excited about during the day, as we had something up our sleeves that no one in the audience knew about. Instead of traditionally walking out after being introduced as husband & wife, we had prepared a live performance of a few favorite songs to share our love story with our closest family and friends. Dhruv entered first solo and joked about how he lost his wife already and needed to sing a song to help me meet him on the dance floor. As he started singing an a cappella love song, I entered atop of the venue’s tall staircase and felt 500 pairs of eyes staring up at me although I only had eyes for my new husband as he swooned me with his voice. After leading me down the staircase, we made our way onto the dance floor and picked up the beat with some fun, new Bollywood songs, incorporating a few of our closest friends to be backup dancers as any traditional Indian dance routine in the movies would have. We ended with a romantic slow song that we both loved and smiled big when it ended, both knowing that we weren’t even sure a month ago if this would’ve even been possible. What made the moment extra special was that four months prior to the wedding, Dhruv had torn his ACL while playing soccer. Not knowing if he would heal well enough to dance, we put our Bollywood-themed entrance on hold until three weeks before the wedding, when he finally had enough stability to give it a try. Although we had to simplify the steps, it meant a lot that we were able to stick to the theme we always wanted to do and both being big dance buffs and having done many performances for other events, it only felt natural to coordinate something unique on the dance floor for our own wedding.

What an awesome wedding! See ya next time, ladies!

From the bride, on planning:

"The best part about planning was how involved Dhruv was. From vendor meetings to budgeting to color & song selection, he was by my side helping with all the small and big decisions. It made our relationship stronger as we learned even more about each other and survived some key stressful moments by relying on each others’ support and creating some fun memories. We also balanced each other out, whereas he was good with budgeting and numbers, I took lead on developing ideas and creative concepts. When the big day arrived, it really helped it feel like our wedding. The other great part was reuniting with so many friends and family throughout the process. From our families in India who made us feel at home during our visit to immediate family here who took on daily tasks to help with the planning to our amazing friends who ran around and played a key role in organizing events, we consider ourselves lucky to have this great network of people around us."

Reception images are still ahead!
