Welcome back, Maharanis! PJ and Arit held the rest of their Indian fusion wedding at the Fremont Marriott Silicon Valley. For the Hindu ceremony, our Indian bride wore a classic red lengha with breathtaking gold embroidery! Her look also featured bright red lips via Artistry by Wagma and a polished updo from Hair By Anaa K. The mood switched for the reception, and our Maharani wore a soft peach lengha with glittering gold details. With her hair swept to the side, pink lips and neutral eyeshadow, our bride looked dreamy and romantic! The swanky decor from Prime Party Rentals, featuring tea lights floating on water, added to the classy atmosphere, and we can't get over the elegance of VA Photography's photos of the whole affair! Make sure to head to the full gallery to bask in every moment!
Our Maharani on the lengha shopping process:
"I started shopping in the Bay Area first, but didn't really find anything that I liked. We only had 6 months to plan the entire wedding. By this time, we only had 3 months left to plan our wedding and I still didn't have anything. My mother-in-law was going to Bombay and thankfully she invited me to join her. Somehow I managed to get a week off from work and make the trip last minute. During that week I had to get 2 wedding lenghas, 2 sangeet outfits, a reception outfit, other smaller event outfits, all of my wedding jewelry and my bridesmaid outfits. It was a long week with a lot of shopping. Thankfully we were able to get everything done. I still don't know how we did it, but I'm glad it's done."
On the most magical moments from the wedding:
"I think the most magical moment about the wedding was the people that were there to celebrate it with us. Seeing our families and friends so happy and excited for us made everything so much better than it already was. It also gave us a chance to meet each others extended family for the first time. We are both pretty close to our families so sharing the moment with them made the wedding magical."
We'll have a double feature tomorrow, so come back to check it out!
