In honor of their big Indian fusion wedding, Nirmala and Ian show off their photogenic smiles for Petronella Photography, at the palatial Full Moon Resort in New York! Our Maharani is breathtaking in her sparkling ceremony anarkali, which was made in India! She looks happy as can be posing next to the man of her dreams—who looks dapper in a peak lapel black tuxedo from Dante Zeller! In tribute to his Jewish roots, he's donning the same yamaka and tallit he wore at his Bar Mitzvah! For her reception look, Nirmala turns up the heat in a white lace wedding dress—courtesy of Lotus BridalJuicy Looks gives our bride elegant hair and makeup to fit the occasion. Her hair is neatly tucked into a sophisticated side do, and her makeup is subdued. I know you want more, so make sure to browse the gallery for more bridal fashion inspiration!

From the bride, on the wedding style:

"Our inspiration came from a Fall trip to the Catskills. We absolutely enjoyed our mini vacation in the mountains. The disconnection with busy city life and the warm rustic charm sold us. We began researching wedding venues in the area and wanted to share the experience with our guests. Full Moon Resort was the first wedding venue we visited and the last. It was the perfect place for us."

On what she enjoyed most:

"The most enjoyable aspect of the planning process were the "adventures" Ian and I got to share; from DIYing  escort cards, to visiting a flower farm. We will both admit wedding planning is not all fun but it was worth every ounce of energy we put into our special day."

From the bride, on how they met:

" Ian and I met at a New York Hospital where he was a counselor and I was a counseling intern. On my very first day, a peer introduced us. I remember thinking, he has the most gorgeous eyes, and oh my he's brazenly flirting with me. We were a few days shy of dating for two months. That night Ian literally took me by the hand and ran several blocks to Prospect Park to catch the last minutes of a Kailash Kher performance. We were incredibly happy, so much had occurred during those two months of getting to know each other, I adored him. That night my heart was full, I knew then he was that person I never wanted to be without."

On the hair and makeup:

"Abby Falore-Ayodeji of Juicy Looks was  my hair and makeup artist. I had a some ideas of what I wanted but was torn with wanting a glamorous look to accompany my ceremony Anarkali and a toned down look for my white bridal gown. Abby worked her magic and gave me a look that worked beautiful with each gown."

On the lenghas:

"Ours was a multicultural, interfaith wedding and as a result I had two bridal outfits. I enlisted the help of my sister, my four year old niece and my husband to be. I chose my anarkali for it's simplicity, comfort and beautiful design. I loved the mild pink tones and the contrast of the stunning silver toned workings. The piece was designed and tailored to my request. We absolutely loved the veil which was made to compliment the anarkali."

The ceremony shots are still ahead!

From the bride, on the reception style:

"The reception was held in an outdoor/indoor venue. Keeping in line with our Hawaiian wedding, we had both contemporary and traditional Hawaiian dancers to entertain our guests. The area was lined with palm trees and tiki torches. Inside the ballroom, we wanted the feel to be elegant, soft and romantic. I loved the idea of a soft, blush color palette that consisted of peaches and ivory. Of course every Bride likes a little glamour, so we accented that with a touches of gold and crystals."

On a special moment:

"As to be expected, there are many for me! But I would have to say that one of the most magical moments was my father-daughter dance! My dad absolutely loves to dance whether at home or at the center of a party! Couple that with his unique taste in music, we knew we wanted to go all out! We started off to a slow song that we choreographed ourselves as a ballroom dance to Billy Joel's "Lullaby, Goodnight My Angel." Just when our guests probably thought that this would be our entire dance, we transitioned into a fun, fast dance to Pulp Fiction's "Jack Rabbit Slims Twist Contest!" And yes- we were totally inspired by John Travolta and Uma Thurman's dance moves! Spending that special time at home rehearsing with my Dad is something I will always cherish."

On the first dance:

"Sameer is an extraordinary guitarist who loves composing his own songs. After a few months of dating, he surprised me with a song he had written for me! It was the most amazing tune I have ever heard.  Prior to the wedding, Sameer secretly recorded his song so that we could use it for first dance song. Dancing to it together on our Wedding night was just as magical as it was the first time I heard it. It reminded us of how far we have come and to dance to our very own song while looking out and seeing all of our loved ones was truly ineffable!"

Hope you loved this wedding like I did, ladies!
