Design House Decor has decked out the party space at the posh Hilton Philadelphia at Penns Landing in Pennsylvania, in the most lavish violet and lavender hues. The floral and decor are luxurious at this Indian wedding reception planned and designed by the extremely talented Kismet Events Inc. Every detail from the romantic sweetheart stage and dramatic centerpieces, to the linens and Chiavari chairs — from the seat savvy experts at Angel Chair Rentals — is exquisitely sublime. Photos by Rob Futrell managed to capture each and every element just beautifully in these incredibly inspiring images that are sure to itch your Pin finger. Maharani Mitali sparkled splendidly in a navy and gold reception gown. Her half up, half down do was party perfect, and so was her makeup by Shaili Shah of MakeUp by Shaili. There's plenty more to see from this knockout night, but you'll have to visit the complete gallery to for a taste of it all — and trust me, you want a taste!
The bride, on what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:
"I really loved every minute of the planning process. I am a wedding planner myself and recently started my business within the past two years and I would say that the best part about planning the wedding was having my husband by my side through every decision. He never once said "he didn't care" about what color or flower we were picking. He was very involved and we luckily have the same taste so any idea we had we both instantly loved. It is still something we look back at today and wish we could re-live."
On her most memorable wedding day moment:
"I think that I am so lucky to say this but I remember every second of the entire day. I really do remember every reaction and every detail. Because I was in control of making my own schedule and hiring vendors that I have worked with in the past, I trusted them completely and was very confident about the entire day. I have never been so relaxed in my entire life. I still remember my makeup artist, Shaili Shah, asking me how it is possible to have such a quiet suite while I was getting ready and how she has never experienced this before. It was just the perfect day overall and there truly isn't even one thing I would change."
On her and her Raja's first dance song selection:
"Our first dance was to the song Jeena Jeena from Badlapur. I think we just heard it two weeks before the wedding and really loved it. We would practice and laugh and really loved the lyrics."
On the role that family and friends played on her dream day:
"Family and friends are always there to help out and are so eager and willing to help all the time. We were so grateful to be surrounded by so many people that loved us back. Our friends put together an incredible dance performance during the Reception and I must say it was one of the best dances I have ever seen because it was filled with 30+ people that I love who all worked together just to put on this performance for me. I couldn't have been more grateful for that."
On working with her talented wedding vendors:
"I guess I would just really like to say that I loved all of my vendors very much. They really made this event possible. I was so lucky because I am a planner and I have worked with all of these vendors before that I know exactly how they work behind the scenes and in front of the light. They have become my friends and without them I really wouldn't have been able to see such an amazing wedding day. I really didn't believe that this day could be as perfect as it was."
That's it for today, Maharanis! We'll be back with more wedding wonders tomorrow, so see you then!
