Hello, Maharanis! We've got a dazzling New York Indian wedding to share with you today, photographed by the amazing Studio Fifty Five! The day began with an outdoor ceremony at Giorgio's Baiting Hallow, where Stylish Events created a beautiful mandap in bright colors perfect for a summer wedding! Our Indian bride arrived via doli, wearing a magnificent red and gold bridal lengha! With her makeup by Rebecca Mohabir, hair by Renita Adjodah and incredibly intricate mehndi by Henna For All, she looked like a true Maharani! See the rest of the incredible moments Studio Fifty Five captured in the full gallery!
Maharani Sierra on her wedding style:
"I looked on Pinterest for different types of color schemes. I really liked the Bollywood fusion colors of fuchsia, orange and purple. It felt very vibrant and lively. We had mostly fuchsia and orange on the outside for the wedding ceremony and purple for the reception inside."
On her favorite part of planning:
"I enjoyed putting everything together and figuring out ways to tie everything together. We saw a symbol that had both our initials, an S and an R, that looks like an elephant and we tried to put it everywhere. We put it on our invitation as a stamp, stickers for our seating cards, our money box, our cake, our personalized M&Ms and photobooth picture."
On choosing her bridal outfits:
"We first tried going to stores in Hickville and Richmond Hill, NY and Iselin, NJ to get an idea. At one of the stores I saw a picture of a Tarun Tahiliani lengha that I absolutely adored. It also inspired the veil we used for entering in the dholi. I worked with my wedding planner to have it made through one of her contacts that designs lenghas. I loved the embroidery and how it flared out. We also found the perfect fuchsia lengha for the reception that had touches of orange and purple and was ready made in a store in Iselin. My father knows a tailor that made it a great fit."
