Hello my loves, I'm so excited to share this wonderful Sikh wedding beautifully captured by StoryMotion Studios! Love was definitely in the air in Pennsylvania during this spring wedding! Our Maharani Reena is simply stunning as she is getting ready to marry her Raja Ateet. Reena dons an all red salwar and kameez adorned with silver embroidery and violet accents with a matching dupatta and gold tikka setting. She truly looks like a princess with in her glamorous make-up look paired with a bright red lip which compliments her red and white churis and gold kalira. This lovely couple weds during an intimate traditional Sikh wedding ceremony at Guru Nanak Sikh Society of Lehigh Valley as they cherish these moments before their extravagant wedding reception! We are extremely thrilled to share with you the reception as we heard IndAroma created a phenomenal wedding cake as well as the scrumptious food and Planet DJ Productions had everyone on the dance floor! Check out the full gallery to take a gander at the luminescent lighting created by Planet DJ Event Lighting during the lavish wedding reception!
The bride on how she her Raja:
"I met my husband at one of my favorite restaurants in New York. I am a real stickler for punctuality and as I walked into the restaurant, there was Ateet..sitting at the restaurant bar..early! This is something I really loved and his punctuality has not changed since. I knew Ateet was someone special as soon as we sat down for dinner..he was not only polite and chivalrous..he was genuine..this quality is very hard to find is a city like NYC and I found it in Ateet . Although Ateet and I are also different in many ways..its our common beliefs and views on the important things that keep our love strong."
On the proposal:
"The day Ateet proposed to me was very memorable in many ways. It was a day which started out as a disaster. I woke up completely sick on a cold and dreary work day. I knew Ateet was coming to visit me in New York (we were in a long distance relationship at the time) and I was hoping to just have a quiet evening at home, even though he told me he wanted to go to Brooklyn for a scavenger hunt he signed us up for. When my work day ended, Ateet asked me if it was still OK to do the scavenger hunt, and reluctantly, I said yes..when we were in the middle of the scavenger hunt..the scavenger hunt organizer came to us and said he had a bonus puzzle which was to open this wooden box based on a puzzle..by this point, I was really enjoying the game, and forgot about how sick I was. Once the wooden box opened (I have to admit it took me some time to open the box) I saw a sweet note to me and a ring pop in the box. I looked at Ateet and he was on one knee and proposed to me..with a ring pop! This was funny and very sweet to me because he remembered a conversation we had a while back where I joked to him that the only way I would marry him is if he proposed with a ring pop. To this day, I have that ring pop and the note saved in a box."
On her wedding style:
"My dream wedding has always been to have a small but very elegant wedding. The decor and lighting was out of this world. We decided on a mainly fuchsia and blue colors. Our dessert presentation was on a bar with beautiful lighting as well..our theme was very similar to our personalities..fun and colorful!"
On planning the wedding:
"I really enjoyed everyone coming together during the planning process of our wedding. I have many family members who live in India and I was fortunate enough to have them here for the wedding planning. The talent I saw in my family was amazing and the time that I got to spend with them leading up to the day of our wedding is something I will never forget."
Don't forget to meet me back here for the wedding reception!
