We can't wait to show you more in Tall Productions' wonderful video, but for now enjoy the photos below and visit the full gallery to see more!
Maharani Punam on choosing her bridal outfits:
"I definitely spent hours googling images. I sent some ideas to my sister-in-law who went to India and got everything made there. It was so fun when she came back and I tried on all the outfits and jewelry in front of my family. Eventually, I just could not hold back my happy tears - I have never felt so spoiled in my life."
On the most magical moment of the wedding:
"My husband and I both remember the moment when we walked into the ballroom reception for the first time. Seeing a room full of people we love cheering us on was overwhelming in the best way imaginable. We walked to the center of the dance floor and did a 360 to look around at the crowd, but it felt like the room was spinning. It was a true out of body experience and one of the happiest moments of my life."
On her hair and makeup:
"I was obsessed with our make-up team, Ishnae & CO. They helped us throughout the day and were fun to be around. I showed them pictures of my looks and they nailed it."
On how her friends and family added to the special day:
"My sister planned a really adorable southern belle themed bridal shower, including big Kentucky Derby hats. Everyone got very much in theme, and her husband cooked up a ton of southern food. My sister and best friend planned the best Bachelorette party in Seattle, WA, to honor where I got engaged."
Closing thoughts from the bride:
"The day of the wedding, many people were kindly telling us how wonderful it was. But the best compliment we got was that the speeches were amazing. And they were. Our family members gave really heartfelt, fun, not-too-long speeches. My friend gave a hilarious speech recapping some moments from our childhood, and his friend, who we get to see really often, made some really sweet observations about our relationship, like the way we are totally ourselves with each other."
Have an incredible day, Maharanis! We'll see you again tomorrow!
