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!

We'll dive into all the beautiful ceremony deets in a jiffy!
It was a gorgeous day in California as newlyweds Aroma and Arpeet prepared for their indoor/outdoor Indian wedding reception at the Montalvo Arts Center. We’re still reeling over their whimsical outdoor ceremony designed by TRADE design + Events with a majestic baraat horse from Vintage Carriage Company! As beautiful as Aroma looked in her pink ceremony sari, we’ve completely fallen in love with this Maharani’s reception look. A fashion forward, lipstick red lehenga with perfectly placed gold embellishments fit the bride like a glittered glove. The outdoor garden area of the venue, as well as the indoor ballroom, was bequeathed with gorgeous florals and overflowing with pastel accessories. Every beautiful detail embodied elegance and class. We’re salivating over the colorful dessert set up by Maria Pasahan filled with every type of pastry imaginable (cake pops, sugar cookies, mini fruit tarts!), not to mention the towering, jeweled wedding cake. As the sun set, scrumptious Indian cuisine was dished out to guests by Le Papillon. After dinner, family and friends hit the dance floor lit by DJ Tanveer. Guests danced the night away to infectious top hits while taking sugary breaks at the overflowing dessert table. What an unforgettable event! See some of our favorite images down below and peruse through the full gallery captured by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema.
That's all folks! Have a lovely day!
We love Indian weddings full of flair, and Aroma and Arpeet’s outdoor celebration at the Montalvo Arts Center didn't miss a beat. Arpeet’s baraat ceremony was led by DJ Tanveer, with a horse from Vintage Carriage Company, and energetic beats ensured that every family member was dancing the entire time during this grand entrance. We love Indian weddings, and hands down our favorite part is the stunning Indian bride. Aroma was the most radiant of Maharanis in hot pink. We’re adore Aroma’s vivacious sari, and her beauty burst off the screen as she floated down the aisle to a rustic mandap with floral embellishments. With her rich silk sari and sparkling jewels, she ensured that she dazzled with sophistication. Every eye was on her as she made her way to her mandap like the Queen that she is! Some of the most gorg decor items were the floral garlands and intricately carved, wooden thrones with planning and design by TRADE design + Events. We’ve chosen some of our favorite photos of the emotional ceremony down below and we can't help but smile at all the joyful moments. We have all the wonderful memories tucked away in our full gallery captured by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema.
The party continues with the reception gala!
