Following their sangeet, garba and mehndi party, it is finally time for Maharani Ritu and  Nayan to meet under the mandap! Samson Productions takes us to Hilton Long Beach Hotel, where Maharani Ritu awaits groom Nayan to arrive in his baraat. Looking perfect in pink, our bride hides behind a second floor column to watch the procession. According to the bride, "From the moment I woke up, I could not stop smiling because I was about to marry my best friend. "
Again, Ziba Beauty does a great job with the Maharani's makeup by bringing out her lovely brown eyes. I'm also experiencing serious jewelry envy with her lavish jewelry set and hot pink churis! Scroll through these beautiful photos and learn what our bride was thinking as she watched the baraat approach.

More from Maharani Ritu: "It was such a cool moment to see the baraat walk in. In fact when they were near the welcome arch where my family was waiting to greet them, the entire baraat chanted: 'NAYAN DOSHI, CLAP, CLAP, NAYAN DOSHI CLAP CLAP.' It was great to see so many people there for us, supporting us on our big day."
Portraits coming right up!
