Hey, dolls! Grab a cup of morning Joe and check out these stunning ceremony and reception photos by Pandya Photography! How gorgeous is the bridal party?! Love the colors and I love the fashion from head-to-toe! But shining most of all is clearly the bride who's meticulously dolled up by BridalGal. A true beauty in red! And then she takes it a step further and outdoes herself in that lovely, lavendar lengha as she dances the night away with her prince as DJ Manan provides the music and entertainment. I mean, what a stylish couple! Sonal J. Shah Event Consultants organizes this event beautifully! The floral & decor, provided by Jeannie at Atlas Floral Decorators Inc., is amazing! This gallery is a must-see!
From the bride, on the cuisine:
"Akash and I love food. We actually had four food tastings! At our Mendhi, we had multiple stations with different countries' cuisines. For brunch before the wedding, we had a traditional South Indian meal, and the reception, we had North Indian fare. We were also lucky enough to have our cake made by Carlo's Bakery. We had such a good time going to each of these food tastings, and incorporating our favorites into the menus. We are especially thankful that we got to try the food out before the wedding, because I think neither of us had a bite to eat that day. We were just too excited!"
On her pre-wedding special moment:
"The morning of the wedding, Akash and I exchanged letters. I started crying after reading his because it was just so beautiful. Until that point, I felt like I hadn't had the time to process what was happening to me. His letter put everything in perspective-- while our wedding day was going to be amazing, it was the lifetime we were going to spend together that I was most excited about. I was finally marrying my soulmate."
On the wedding details:
"I think this is what makes Indian weddings so special. No matter how many professionals you hire, it's not an Indian wedding until you have a house full of family and friends obsessing over the last minute details. Our wedding was no different. We had aunts and friends help us make the welcome baskets, pack sweets for our favors, and decorate our homes for all the events."
Oh, and how fabulous are the wedding cakes?! Ladies, I'm off to the bakery, see you later! Smooches!
