This happy couple have yet another unusual aspect of their Indian wedding: instead of a nighttime reception, they opted for a lovely outdoor lunch. I can already feel the warm breeze on my face and second glass of champagne going to my head just by looking at these pictures from IQphoto!
Anais Event Planning & Design worked with Celebration Party Rentals to make this stunning affair happen. Look at how the pool is transformed into a mosaic of flower petals! If you're looking to throw an awesome wedding reception like this on your own estate, here are some things event planner Amrit says to keep in mind...

Words of wisdom from Anit of Anais Event Planning & Design:
Some estate properties may come with perks, but generally speaking, most come with nothing included. Which means one needs to arrange EVERYTHING to be brought on-site. From permits to tables, chairs, china, decor, dance floors, restrooms, staffing, tenting, rain plans, power generators etc, every detail needs to be reviewed and checked off -- the costs add up quickly. While some may see it as a disadvantage, it is actually a huge advantage! You start with a blank canvas and work with professionals to plug in your thoughts and ideas to fill this canvas with color and beauty - and create a day that is completely and uniquely YOU!
Our sincere thanks to Maharani Sarina and her groom for letting us in on their intimate celebration, and to Amrit for her professional advice on wedding planning! She's given us a lot to think about, huh, Maharanis?
Don't stray far -- I have more Indian wedding inspiration coming tomorrow!
