Hello Maharanis! The renowned K.I. Weddings planning team has done it again, bringing us Punam and Pavit's fabulous Indian wedding! With two ceremonies and two baraats, this Texas-sized event was filled with more wonder than we could imagine! Our lovely Indian bride, Punam, started the day by getting a gorgeous hair and makeup look done by Ishnae & CO; then, she met with her Raja for a first look photoshoot with Two Pair Photography! We hope to see all the magic moments in motion when we get Tall Productions's dazzling video of the event; until then, check out the Sikh ceremony below and visit the full gallery to see some stunning baraat photos!
Maharani Punam on meeting her Raja and how she knew he was "the one":
"I met him many years ago through mutual friends when we were much younger. We reconnected years later when we were both living in Dallas, Texas. My attraction to him was instant, but I knew he was the one a few months after we started dating. He just gets me."
On the romantic proposal:
"He proposed to me at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum in Seattle, WA while we were on a trip. The Museum was practically empty, and the glass sculptures were glowing. We were sitting on a bench, taking it all in, when he asked me."
On her wedding style:
"I wanted to incorporate the beautiful colorful and lively aspects of our culture, but the contemporary, clean, concepts that are my style. I am not big fan of glitter or crystals (even my engagement ring is a dark blue sapphire stone). The reception was blue and gold, and all the florals were shades of white. We sat on a white stage, with a mirrored table, and behind us stood a ten-foot tall wall of real white fluffy feathers. My designer RAOFACTOR made that wall just for us based on a random vision I had."
On her favorite part of planning:
"Getting to spend more time with family and friends as we planned all the events. It was always a great excuse to get together. Also, 'designing' the bridesmaids dresses was a fun creative process. I had 11 women help me out as bridesmaids; they are all stunning inside and out, and it meant the world to me that they feel exceptionally beautiful that day."
