With their royal blue wedding party by their side, our dashing Maharajas head from their unforgettable Indian fusion ceremony to a night to remember at their wedding reception. The boys and girls are all shiny and happy in their gorgeous fashions from Roopam Sarees, and they also have Bombay Jewelers to thank for helping them to sparkle even more! Photo guru, Lynds Photography, captured all the candid and memorable moments from the day's events, and they didn't miss a beat. Catering, by Madhuban Indian Cuisine, fueled the grooms and their guests for the dance floor, and the floral and decor by SB Arts brought in a polished party atmosphere fit for our Rajas. Riffat Sultana wrote and performed a special song for the happy couple, and a special dance act by Azaad provided extra entertainment for the evening. Hopefully, the guests left a little room for a piece of the decadent wedding cake created by TLCakes — though there's always room for some cake! For all the fun details from this spectacular event, make your way to the complete gallery.
The Rajas, on what they enjoyed most about planning their dream Indian wedding:
"We enjoyed the tastings (food and liquor). Some of the detail planning was fun too. For instance our guests received custom gift bags as they checked into their hotel. Designing the gift bags was fun, and adding the personal touch to that was very fun and cool."
Raja Neil, on his most memorable wedding day moment:
"The whole day goes by so fast. There are days where I want to do it all over again. There are so many precious memories from the entire week. For me- I remember enjoying being personally serenaded by the world famous Riffat Sultana during the sangeet night, and during my vows at the ceremony I looked down to my niece and nephews emotionally moved from the vows. It was very Surreal. Eli was very in awe when he was welcomed to the alter by the artie. Something he has seen other grooms go through and having to go through it himself was very surreal to him."
On their first dance song choice:
"Our first dance was Har Kisi Ko from the movie Boss. It had the right message and is just a wonderful song. However, we broke into a special performance with our nephew in the middle of the slow dance. All planned of course."
Raja Neil, on support from friends and family:
"So many friends and family stepped in to help out for the big day. Our niece, nephews, and closest friends were at our beckoning call to help us with anything we needed. Yes...I was a little bit of a groomzilla."
Au revoir for now, my dears! Make sure you stop by for more wedding inspiration next week!
