From the bride, on the lenghas:

"All my wedding outfits were from Mumbai. My bridesmaids sarees, Sangeet and Wedding lehngas were designed by Meenakshi Patel who was a dream to work with. She is very collaborative and we both spent hours sketching all the outfits. She even had fabric samples that we put together to get an idea of what the final product would look like. We used different fabrics to suit each event - a light georgette so I could dance freely at the sangeet/garba, elegant raw silk for the wedding ceremony and breezy net/brocade for my bridesmaids so they didn't feel too restricted. My mehendi and reception outfits were from local Mumbai stores and we must have checked out a million stores before finding the right ones. I really wanted to buy stuff that I could wear later on to other people's events as well. I would hate to see such beautiful outfits collect dust in the closet."

On the hair and makeup:

"I can't praise Nida Gazi from Beauty By NG, my hair and make up stylist, enough. She is not only amazing at what she does, but truly a calming force. We had a slight hiccup the night before the wedding and I was visibly stressed while she was getting me ready the next day. Until the matter resolved, she was my rock. She made sure I had everything I needed and was constantly joking around to distract me. In terms of styling, I had sent her some pictures of hairstyles I liked but I really left the make up looks up to her. After all, she's the expert! She works so well with the indian skin tone and she made sure that I had a distinct look for every event. I wanted to make sure that I looked like myself but stood out as the bride at the same time. My cousins/friends who also got married around the same time have also worked with her and she's more a friend than anything else now."

The wedding shots are straight ahead!

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."

Outdoor portraits are next!

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!
