Photographick Studios takes us to Virginia for this contemporary fusion Indian wedding which takes place at the Spencerville Seventh-day Adventist Church. To sum up this couple's love story in just a few words — he fell for her quick wit and charm while she fell for his gentle and calm demeanor. On their special day, Maharani Sharon is truly an angelic beauty in her flowing, white wedding gownNina Hale dolls up the bride in shimmery white and silver eye shadows paired with a glossy lip. Her beautiful, black hair is tied back in an elegant updo by Amber Mortimer as she walks down the aisle holding a gorgeous bouquet by Davinci Florist and Décor. Don't stay away for too long because lost more is coming up, but until then, follow me to the gallery for more wedding inspiration!

From the bride, on the proposal:

"My birthday is on June 8 and I had told him that I did not want a big birthday celebration this year, but I was secretly lying because my birthday is the one occasion that I always celebrate.  I thought that my husband did not pick up on the fact that I was joking because we ended up just having a simple dinner together.  A week later he told me that his friend was celebrating her birthday and that we were invited. He told me that we needed to get to DC a little early because he had planned for us to get pictures taken together, something that we had wanted to do for some time.  He hired a photographer and booked a photo session at Hillwood Museum and Gardens.  We got to the gardens and met our photographer, John.  John took us around the gardens and snapped numerous pictures of us.  As we got to the rose garden area, John asked if we wanted to take individual shots instead of couples shots. I resisted initially but my husband and John convinced me. As John was taking pictures of me, Andrew got the ring out and knelt behind me.  He initially asked me to turn around but I told him I could not because John was still taking pictures.  John then prompted me to turn around and when I did I was completely surprised seeing Andrew on one knee with the ring.  It was a very special moment.  After that, we drove to his friend's birthday party.  Once we got there, all of our friends and family were waiting there to celebrate in this special occasion."

On the wedding style:

"Our color inspiration was purple/lavender. We wanted a clean and simple look, yet something that was still elegant. Our church looked beautiful to begin with so we did not want to do too much to take away from that.  We decided upon having a few simple flower arrangements strategically positioned around the church to enhance its look, along with some candles to light it up a bit. We wanted to incorporate purple into the reception hall by using uplighting. Our decorations in the reception hall were mostly white, with the purple uplighting bringing all the color into the room. After browsing many pictures, we decided that this style of decorating was the way we wanted to go."
