Divine Occasions recently planned the most stunning Indian fusion wedding in Atlanta, Georgia, shot by the fabulous folks at Jamie Howell Photography, and is sharing all the pretty little details with us today! Nattasha and Faisal were faced with the task of incorporating their different religious beliefs into one unforgettable marriage ceremony, and they did it flawlessly, with a side of Maharani style! Erica Bogart Beauty provided her impeccable hair and makeup skills to Maharani Nattasha, who rocked a glamorously elegant, gold wedding sari from Sahil Exclusive on her big day at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead. We got an exclusive look at the custom henna designs that Beauty You Deserve created on the chargers at the newlyweds' post-ceremony soirée, and heard that Café Bombay Restaurant and Catering served up some fabulous fare on top of those to boot! Before we dive into all of those fantastic reception details, make sure to check out more ceremony moments from this fusion wedding affair, including bonus details from Raja Faisal's baraat and an exclusive look into some of the happy couple's pre-wedding moments in the complete gallery!
Maharani Nattasha, on her wedding style:
"I didn't have a concept of the end product. I just knew I wanted the Friday event (Pithi/Sangeet) to be very colorful, festive, and Indian! For the reception, I was going for a more refined feel with elegance."
On her and Faisal's unforgettable fusion ceremony:
"My husband and I have different religious points of view, so we opted to tailor our ceremony. We incorporated only the rituals that were meaningful to us. We wanted the ceremony to be conducted by people we love, so our parents officiated."
Additional thoughts from the bride:
"Kathy with Divine Occasions made the most wonderful garlands from jasmine! It reminded me of being back in India as soon as it was placed around my neck."
I'll be back later today with a look at Nattasha and Faisal's reception!
