Are you gals ready for some of the most romantic and inspiring reception details from the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana, California? Maharani Mala and Raja Christopher are officially husband and wife, and it's time for them and their lucky guests to celebrate! Following their stunning South Indian wedding ceremony at the Malibu Hindu Temple, the happy couple and their guests are set to party the night away at an outdoor reception, and the amazing DJ and lighting technicians from Ambiance AV are there to make sure it all goes down with some major style. With twinkling light strands and a flood of mood lighting across the dance floor and tables, the stage for this post-ceremony soirée has been phenomenally set. The elegant floral and decor by Ana Garcia is rich with bursts of red, and the newlyweds are dazzling in their sophisticated fashions — a champagne-colored lengha and black tuxedo. Mala is flawless from start to finish in these images captured by AJ Studios Photography, thanks to her hair and makeup team from Skin Deep MUA. You can see even more from this enchanting evening in the complete gallery!

Maharani Mala, on what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:

"The week leading up to the wedding was the most fun in terms of planning because that was when I was able to take time off and go home to spend time prepping with my family. I loved having lots of relatives around together working on the sweets, the decorations, the place-cards, etc."

On her and her Raja's first dance song:

"We danced to "Cheek to Cheek" sung by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. We wanted a song that was both cheerful and romantic!"

On the role family and friends played:

"We had to plan a lot of the wedding remotely, so practically every part was made possibly by friends or family working hard on our behalf! One part that stands out the most is my brother and Christopher's cousin emceeing the reception. They were hilarious together and also able to sweetly describe just how special the union of our families was."

Additional thoughts from the bride on her wedding day details:

"My reception jewelry was a gold kundani set sent as a gift from my cousin in India. For the ceremony I wore some of my mom's jewelry as well as some gifted jewelry. Our wedding cake was a beautiful tiered round cake (white cake with lemon & bavarian cream fillings) with ivory frosting and decorated with real red rose; it was from Chocolate Savvy."

Wasn't that simply lovely? We'll be back with another wedding treat for you tomorrow, my dears!
