Newly married and ready to have fun, Ruchi and Samip celebrate with family and friends at their swanky reception inside the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square in Texas! Going with the Winter Wonderland theme, Decor One infuses the cool space with silver glittering fabric, warming things up a bit with luminous glass candles. Karmadjs lights up the room in a fresh blue while mixing up the hottest beats for the crowd to bogey down to! In the midst of all the splendor, Devi by KumarImages catches up with our spotlight couple on the dance floor. Maharani Ruchi is a striking vision in her champagne-colored lengha by Sabyasachi as she cuts a rug with Samip who looks sharp in his fitted suit! It's clear to see on their bright, shiny faces that their wedding vision came true, thanks to Electric Karma International!

From the bride, on the first dance:
"Our first dance was to Ho Hey, by the Lumineers, we chose it because it was a little upbeat and had some New York City references in there. If you can't tell yet, NYC will always hold a special place in our hearts."
On additional details:
"Here are some fun details that we spent a lot of time bringing together: Jewelry- I am very minimalistic when it comes to jewelry but of course since it was my wedding, I knew I would have to wear some. The set I wore on my mehdnhi event with the blue lengha was one my that my nani (grandma) had made for me, it was Harry Winston inspired snowflake set that went perfectly with the season and the light blue of my lengha. The necklace, earrings and tikka I wore with my wedding lengha were all Anita Dongre, the necklace my mom and aunt picked out without me since I never wear big jewelry. My mom loves statement jewelry and even though i thought it might be too much, it brought my entire look together very well. The earrings, necklace and bracelet I wore during my reception were all gifts from Samip's parents, they were so stunning and definitely pieces that I can wear over and over with all types of clothes. Sangeet Food: Samip and I love to travel and have places around the world that house so many special memories to us and our families. We wanted to somehow incorporate this into our wedding and did that at the Sangeet. We had to transport our guests from the hotel to the venue and created boarding passes that we put into the welcome baskets so we could let guests know they were going to have a taste around the world. We created different stalls with food we love from around the world. It was so much fun doing the tasting and planning for this. Cake: We personally didn't care about having a big cake but I am a huge fan of cupcakes, especially mini ones. Lucky for us, Houston has a plethora of amazing vendors. My wedding planner introduced me to Deelish Cupcakes, they were delicious and we decided to create a cupcake tower with a mix of Indian and American flavors, hot chocolate shooters, snowball cookies and a snowflake cake topper to go along with our Winter Wonderland theme."
Have a great rest of your day, gals!
