Ina and Shobhit’s lavish Indian wedding was a feast of rich tradition, color, and fashion. We especially loved the behind the scenes photos by Shan Photography of Maharani Ina adorning herself in full bridal regalia. She carefully selected the perfect red lehenga and sparkling accessories for her special day. The final result was well worth the wait! Once she was ready to walk down the aisle, she truly epitomized a glamorous Indian bride. We have to give props to Gayatri Makeup, who did a fantastic job creating the hair and makeup look and styling/draping details on the lovely bride. While Ina was readying her finishing touches, the baraat was in full swing outside. Raja Shobhit was on cloud 9 as the banging beats by DJ Mavi energized the crowd. As guests streamed inside the venue, Shobhit waited with bated breath for Ina to make her grand reveal. She was dazzling as she floated down the aisle, and during the following ceremony, loved ones blessed the couple as they embarked on their exciting adventure as husband and wife. For more behind the scenes action, we’ve assembled a full gallery of photos by Shan Photography for your enjoyment. Also, scroll below for our fun interview with Maharani Ina!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was definitely not prepared but they say best things happen to you when unprepared!
He proposed after having couple of drinks in the cutest way possible. He got down on his knees in the middle of a parking lot! I survived a panic attack that evening but couldn't take my eyes off him the whole time :)
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since childhood I dreamt of wearing a red traditional lehenga and to look as beautiful as my mom did on her wedding! And let's just say my dream came true! My outfit was imported from New Delhi, India. It has the traditional dabbka work on it and weighs approximately 100 lbs.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The Confusion!! Haha! I find confusion the most amusing and enjoyable part of the wedding. I had lots of guests traveling from all over the country so planning was a full swing, never ending process. However our family and close friends made the event a grand success.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Good food, alcohol and music sums up a North Indian, Punjabi wedding. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the two day fun filled events.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Each moment was so special, I can literally rewind and replay everything in my head. I just didn't want it to end.
However, my sister's speech and my husband's dance performance are moments I think about all the time
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Brides-to-be need to Chill, Enjoy, Laugh, Look Gorgeous!
Stop worrying and things will fall in place :)
Such great advice. We hope you have a wonderful Father's Day Weekend Maharanis!
