From the bride, on how they met & the proposal:

"My husband and I met on Okcupid.com. We met in Philly, fell in love in NYC (on a one day trip), and he popped the question after a skydiving adventure in Santa Cruz, CA ..something that was on my bucket list for a long time! We had our engagement party in Orange County, CA where my groom's family is from and had our wedding in Mahwah, NJ where my family is from!"

Stay tuned for the getting ready & pre-wedding portraits, up next!

Mahwah, NJ Indian Wedding by Ajit Singh Photography

The wait is over, girlies! Ajit Singh Photography brings us a lovely array of images from the reception, which also takes place at the prestigious Sheraton Mahwah Hotel!

The scrumptious cake by, A Little Cake, is so stylish! I love the single gold layer in the middle that's lined with flowers. The lucky guests will dine to the delish cuisine of Moghul Caterers and dance the night away to the DJ stylings of DJ Gaurav! I must relive every moment in the gallery!

From the bride, on the reception:

"I changed my look entirely for the reception. Liz came back to redo my makeup, and this was where she shined. My reception makeup was stunning. She made my brown eyes really pop by using a navy eyeliner which was our accent color. Neel and I had a lot of fun during our reception photo shoot. We were officially married so we were on this high that made us feel we were invincible. The lighting and weather was perfect, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The decor for the reception was breathtaking. Design House Decor suspended a chandelier with a ring of orchids, it was so beautiful. The lighting was bright white that made the stage stand out.Our friends performed a skit that outlined my and Neel's relationship. It captured the essence of our relationship so perfectly. My brother, sister, and cousins performed a dance that had Neel and I itching to get out of our seats to dance! They all worked so hard to choreograph and deliver an unforgettable performance. DJ Gaurav played music that spoke to all generations, from old school Bollywood to top 40. The dance floor was packed with guests that danced the night away. Our wedding was the best day of our lives, we truly are so sad that it's over. Now we cannot wait to have a vow renewal ceremony so we can do it all over again!"

From the bride, on the wedding style:

"I am Persian, and Vinay is Gujarati. Both of us come from such rich and unique cultures that it quickly became clear to us that we would want to give each tradition the time and attention it deserves. Rather than try to fuse the two, we decided to have two separate ceremonies on two different days. Doing so gave us the opportunity to have multiple color palettes that reflect taste and vision."

On planning:

"Planning the Hindu ceremony was a real learning process for me. I had only attended a handful of Indian weddings before planning my own and had to rely heavily on friends and family for direction. It was amazing to explore all the possibilities from decor to mendhi, and don't get me started on the fashion!"

On a special moment:

"Every minute of the whole weekend was amazing! It rained throughout the majority of our weekend and we were unable to get as many photos as we had hoped before the Hindu ceremony began. Once the reception was underway, our photographers pulled us outside for a photo in the rain they had been planning all day. The only problem? It had stopped raining! Vinay and I just hugged and laughed at the irony of finally having clear skies but wishing for rain! We were still able to pull off the photo as the photographers had envisioned and it turned out to be one of everyone's favorite images!"

Ceremony images are still ahead!

From the bride, on how they met:

"Meeting Parth was not something I had planned at all. I went to a swing dancing class my Freshman year. I was a bit late so I searched the room until I found this guy wearing a button down shirt with rolled up sleeves and a big smile on his face. Little did I know that he would be my dance partner for life. We kept in touch through the years but he was so involved in almost every organization on campus, pledging for a fraternity, exceling in his school work and having great rapport with his peers and his professors, we kind of got lost in our busy lives. However he definitely juggled it all. Even though we were officers in an Indian Cultural Association together, I didn’t see the true side of him until we both took a Hindi course together our Junior year. As he teased me incessantly, I caught onto his cultured and respectful side throughout conversation. I admired his ability to be so well-rounded and that is when the puzzle of my Raja became complete. Since then we have shared 6 years of beautiful memories; graduating college as he gave our class speech, getting accepted into medical school with 4 years of distance making us even closer, celebrating numerous birthdays, exploring delectable food and just being silly. I am so thankful for God, my family, friends and life’s journey for allowing me to meet such an admirable, respectable, intelligent and giving man. I truly am living my dream and can definitely say that where there is love, there is life."

On the proposal:

"The proposal was ever so thoughtful. I was definitely blind-sided as it was my birthday, and I had gone out the night before with friends. My beau at the time had irritated me as he could only make it for one night to see me because he had "made plans" with his friends in Houston the night before. I was a bit frustrated because we hardly saw each other monthly as we went to med schools 4 hours away. However, throughout it all he was actually in Dallas prepping for what I didn't know was going to be the most memorable time in my life. The day of the Proposal, 3/16/2014, we were celebrating my birthday as it was 2 days prior. He was "running late" as usual and came to my apt door dressed so fresh and was taking me to brunch at the Reata in Fort Worth. He is always extravagant with his birthday celebrations for me and we try to surprise each other yearly, so I knew it was going to be great. We went to the rooftop bar and we heard beautiful classical music playing around the corner. I wanted to listen to it as I have played the violin for 14 years. I was walking down these steps filled with flower petals and recognized the song, my favorite song of all time "Suraj Hua Madham" from the movie K3G! I saw pictures of us on this table and I was like omg this birthday is epic! Then he turned around and started speaking and he was shaking a bit but I didn't know why until he hugged me, and then I knew this was NOT for my birthday. He went on his knee and sayed words that were all a blur, pulled out a gorgeous ring from Robbin's Brothers and proposed. I was speechless, whispered yes which he didn't hear and asked if I liked the ring lol. At that point I was so excited but filled with so many emotions, I just kept tearing and thinking about everything. And to top it all off, some of our closest friends popped out from the rooftop bar with my sister and it was amazing! Afterwards we went to the temple, went to celebrate with our parents and then he had a surprise dinner planned in Fort Worth, TX with all our closest friends. I will never forget such a beautiful day."

On the hair & makeup:

 "Hair and makeup was done by the wonderful Alex from Ms. Painted Lady. I had given her pictures of updos and downdos I loved on Pinterest and she created exactly what I wanted. She was a hoot to work with and just a great person to be around to calm my nerves prior to the ceremony."

On the lenghas:

"I knew that I wanted custom made outfits for my Wedding and Reception. I had searched for outfits and designs I loved and I worked with the amazing Neelam Mathrani from Red Paisley's, sat down with her to show her images of what I was aspiring my outfit to look like. She was able to draw out sketches, let me choose colors that complimented each other and continued to update me on my outfit as they were being made from the color dye process to the beading all the way down to the final product. She was a pleasure to work with, so patient, kind and creative. She even helped my mom create a gorgeous royal blue blouse for the reception sari that I know I will borrow in a heart beat."

Black & white portraits are up next!
