The party blasted off to a whole new stratosphere of fun when Jessica and Adhitya’s spectacular reception shindig at the Barclay Villa began! The couple descended a grand staircase to cheers from their adoring guests. The venue was an elegant masterpiece, filled with earthy yet lux touches by Jennifer V. Event Design and Planning that made the ambiance warm and romantic. This talented couple immediately put on their dancing shoes and performed a lovely first dance that had the crowd going wild. After a champagne toast, the cutting of the chic white cake, and savory bites by Catering Works Inc., the couple was raring to let loose! Jessica and Adhitya told us their favorite combination of their diverse backgrounds was in the fusion of reception music. DJ Rang led the charge with euphoric beats, with the couple requesting an eclectic mix of tunes included Jason Mraz, Kishore Kumar hits from the ‘60's, ‘70's and ‘80's era, and fun, Bollywood and Tamil hits. This list makes us want to get up and sashay out of our chair! The newlyweds told us that the dance floor was filled to the brim from the second the first song played. Readers take note: An Eastern meets Western playlist incorporating a multitide of genres and eras will always be a bona fide hit on the dance floor!

We’ve finally arrived at the big moment! Jessica and Adhitya were wed under the sunshine drenched Noth Carolina sky in a refreshing outdoor ceremony at the Barclay Villa. Jennifer V. Event Design and Planning jazzed the space up with their artistic flourishes, and the ambiance was uplifting and perfectly suited for this charming duo. We’re loving so many details, such as the adorable ring bearer and flower girls in Indian garb. We are touched that the couple combined their Eastern and Western heritages for a fusion celebration that let both of their heritages shine. For the ceremony, a plethora of Jason Mraz songs were played since Jessica is a huge fan. Perhaps our favorite detail was Jessica’s Carrie Bradshaw-esque blue heels that twinkled playfully under her angelic white gown by David's Bridal. Adhitya’s heart skipped a beat as his beautiful bride made her way down the aisle, dolled up by Chrissie Owenby. The sentimental ceremony sealed the deal, and the duo were thrilled to be pronounced husband and wife! The fun continues with the duo’s glam reception soiree, but in the meantime, you can take a gander at all the precious snaps in the full gallery by In His Image Photography!
Next up: All the reception deets!
Excited groom Adhitya told Maharani Weddings, “The night that I proposed to her, I was shaking with nervousness until I got down on one knee. As soon as I saw the tears of joy in her eyes, I was shaking with excitement.” Aw! With such an emotional proposal, we knew Jessica and Adhitya’s wedding at Barclay Villa would consist of oodles of hearts, roses, and fuzzy feels. It was very important to the couple to combine their Western and Eastern backgrounds. Since the duo already had a wedding ceremony in India, their Angier, NC nuptial was a traditional Christian wedding with a multitude of Indian flourishes. The resulting celebration perfectly blended two beautiful cultures. We loved the behind the scenes peek at Maharani Jessica readying herself for the most important day of her life surrounded by her sari clad bridesmaids. After being glammed by Chrissie Owenby’s magic, brushes, her sun kissed makeup and tousled waves were pure perfection! And the vibrant blue and orange saris were such a delightful contrast to Jessica’s pristine white gown from David's Bridal. In this post, we share all the pre-wedding shots of the bridal party, and we have to say, this is one handsome bunch! Coming right up is all the emotional ceremonial action, so hurry back! In the meantime, you can peruse the full gallery of portraits by In His Image Photography.
We'll dive into all the beautiful ceremony deets in a jiffy!
The Moon Palace has housed many wonderful events, today we add yet another Indian wedding celebration that will leave you giddy with joy! This last feature concludes Maharani Avani and Siddharth’s grand wedding celebration on the sandy beaches of Mexico. After her Indian wedding ceremony, the bride and groom were ready to kick off the night - Indian wedding style! The bride was beautified by Styling Trio and slipped into a beach friendly lengha in shades of pink. The Caribbean Terrace at the Moon Palace was where the reception party was held at. The sweetheart stage designed by Latin Asia contained the perfect amount of bling and floral to light the venue up with some pop. The natural ambiance of Mexico didn’t require further furnishing and everything was designed with perfect simplicity. Guests danced from sun up to sundown with spinster DJs M4U Events. The multitalented team ensured that not a single guest wasn’t getting down on the dance floor. The series of live events and still memories found in the gallery was captured by Sarani Photography.
We hope you enjoyed this feature and we cannot wait to share with you all the amazing Indian weddings that have yet to come!
There is something that is just so special about having an Indian wedding on the beaches of Mexico. Pair that with my favorite aspect of an Indian wedding - the baraat ceremony, and you have a win win situation. The bustling sounds of M4U Events blared bright and loud as Siddarth’s clan made their way down the warm sands of Mexico. But, it was truly Siddharth and his groomsmen that made the real grand entrance! Perched on jet ski’s the group of men rode the ocean waves to the outdoor Indian ceremony held at the Beach Palace area of North Beach. After changing into his matchy matchy sherwani, the groom was ready for his bride Avani to make her way down the beach and into the floral mandap designed by Latin Asia. The natural backdrop of the ocean was the perfect contrast to the overbidding floral design of one my favorite mandaps to date! This multi day wedding extravaganza was planned and designed with a selective luxury in mind by Yanet Zavala. Sarani Photography captured the perfect series of events and you can find the entire wedding swimming in the gallery!
Our last stop is for the terrace top reception party at the Moon Palace. See you in a bit!
