Hello, my darlings! So, the weekend is right around the corner but let's celebrate now with this stunning New Jersey Indian wedding by Joie Elie Photography & Cinematography and Ring to Aisle Events. The bride looks amazing, courtesy of Flawless Beauty by Pauline. Her ruby-red, beaded wedding lengha is simply sensational! Love the intricate beadwork! And the mandap is so elegant and beautiful! I am so enchanted with the floral chandelier fixtures marking the pathway to wedded bliss! Design House Decor really outdid themselves! Azure Couture Event Stationery provided the paper roses (pink and frosted gold) as well as place cards and menus. Check out the full gallery, my beauties!
From the bride:
"It was a beautiful weekend, which started with our garba night on Friday at Rasoi III, with catering from Rasoi III and entertainment with Medley Entertainment. Saturday morning started with our baraat, leading into our ceremony at Addison Park."
On the proposal:
"I was in NY the summer of 2013, and Parth was in Virginia. I flew down to visit him for a few days. The moment I flew in, Parth told me that we were going to visit a botanical garden, go to a nice dinner and out with his friends afterwards. I had an inkling the proposal was going to happen that week, but I didn't know it would be that night! Parth was more dressed up than usual, so that's when my suspicions rose. He took me to a beautiful botanical garden, and sat me down on a bench in a rose garden, and that's when he proposed! We went out to dinner afterwards, and he had gathered all our friends for a party that night. It was definitely a night to remember."
On the ceremony style:
"I wanted the garba to be fun, colorful and vibrant. For the wedding ceremony, I envisioned something traditional, simple yet elegant."
On her bridal lengha:
"Since I didn't have enough time to make a trip to India, I decided to shop in Edison, NJ and Jackson Heights, NY. I found my wedding ceremony lengha in Jackson Heights and had to make some alterations to it the way I wanted it. I then found my garba sari in Edison - I loved it the moment I saw it - sparkly, heavy and I loved its shade of blue."
On her makeup:
"Pauline Nobles was my hair and makeup artist and I am so glad I decided to go with her. She made the whole experience so fun and light and really listened to what I envisioned for that day. I had a few styles in mind from the Internet, but wasn't exactly sure how I wanted each hairstyle to differ and Pauline worked with me throughout it all and even came to my house for a trial. As for makeup, I let Pauline do her thing and I was very happy with the outcome!"
