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!

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!

As if Mala and Sandeep’s wedding celebration couldn’t impress us even more, here we present you the masterpiece of a reception that ended the celebrations with a bang. The bride slipped into a silky, blue and gold gown that was designed for a queen. Indeed this bride looked like royalty with shiny gold jewelry and waves of gold gracing her neck. Anet's Artistry truly is a master at her beauty craft! The Bella Blanca had a very whimsical theme that was designed by the floral artistry of Shirley Nayoan. Each table was presented with its very own standing blooms with the lighting fixtures from the ceiling bathing the venue in a harmonious glow. The couple opted to have sugary desserts geared away from the norm with a delectable collection of sprinkle doughnuts, maple bars and bear claws. This was sure to delight even the greatest sweet teeth! No reception party would be complete without the eclectic and harmonious sounds of euphoric beats and Fusion Sounds blew the guests away with impeccable lighting and beats. Dana Erickson of BEL Event Productions spearheaded the series of events masterfully! We can’t pick just one favorite!

We see a lot of sangeet celebrations in the office. We mean, a lot.

If you have not viewed Mala's sangeet, you can read all the details here! But for now, we explore the gorgeous Indian wedding.

Oversized gold kundan jewelry and a sweeping iron wrought choker were just some of the highlights of this bridal look. The Bella Blanca was bestoonned with the magical artistry of Deepti’s Floral Designs and Mandaps with a one of the kind mandap that was truly a decor masterpiece.
