Happy Monday, Maharanis! The Newport Beach Marriott Hotel is all abuzz with brilliant Indian wedding details from the sunny Southern California wedding of Reha and Vijay, and today we'll be exploring all the unforgettable moments in photos and a highlight film by the talented folks from Aaroneye Photo & Video! Today's blushing Indian bride called on hair and makeup maven Nadia Ali, of Henna Dil Se, to perfect her bridal style and she looked absolutely picture perfect in her first look portraits with the Raja of her dreams. Her red and white bridal lengha sparkled in all the right places, and Vijay was dashing as can be on horseback for his baraat procession! An industry expert from Bridal and Event Lounge coordinated their dream day and helped to deliver a flawless outdoor ceremony that looks absolutely breathtaking. We'll check out some of the post-ceremony details that followed at the newlyweds' reception next, but in the meantime, make sure to fill up on even more of the sensational moments from their ring exchange in the complete gallery!
Maharani Reha, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Vijay:
"Yes, we got engaged in Maui while we were biking down Mount Haleakea. It was very sweet and his sister and brother in law were there so we have a short recording."
On shopping for her lenghas:
"I went to many shops in India with my family- that was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, and I am so glad to have done it. I tried on so many outfits and had my mom, aunties, cousins and even some uncles to help with the process."
On her most memorable wedding day moment:
"Yes, my husband had his groomsmen come to my room while I was getting ready. They brought me a card and roses from him. The card had our receipt from our first date!"
On her Hair & Makeup:
"I found Nadia Ali from Henna DilSe and she is amazing. She helped me come up with a look."
