Today's newly-wedded Indian bride, Ankita, has swapped her traditional red wedding lengha for a hot pink reception outfit that's as dazzling as can be, and she's ready to hit the dance floor with her brand new hubby, Raja Sunil! These two lovebirds look fabulous showing off their partywear in these reception portraits captured by photo phenom, Tim Halberg Photography! The breathtaking vineyard and waning sunlight make for some seriously magical moments, and we are blown away by it all! Floramor has decorated the party space at the Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in elegant and tasteful floral and decor work, and Pastrychik has created a decadent cake creation to help Ankita and Sunil celebrate the evening in style. Complete with custom cocktails and marquee letters, this reception is one none of us will soon forget! If you're still itching for more divine details from it all, head into the complete gallery!
Maharani Ankita, on her reception decor:
"We think our gold centerpieces with lush florals captured the romantic vibe we wanted. I always wanted a flower wall and we think this was the perfect accent piece to enhance our sweetheart table."
On her reception fashion:
"I wanted a different look for the reception. I went seeking for a heavy gown to compliment the Western trends throughout our ceremony. The gown had the ease that allowed me to dance around but the elegance of a traditional Indian outfit."
On her and Raja Sunil's first dance song:
"Sunil and I danced to “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King. One of the first Valentine’s Day cards I got Sunil played this song when you opened it. Through ups and downs, we always stood by each other. It seemed like a natural choice."
On her post-ceremony hair and makeup:
"For the reception, I wanted to let my hair down, literally, and get loose and have fun. I stuck to my natural curls by enhancing it. We did not have time to do a whole makeup change so I stuck to the sultry morning look by adding pink lips to compliment my reception outfit."
Additional thoughts from the bride:
"One of my favorite parts of our wedding was that we were able to re purpose all of our flowers through Random Acts Of Flowers. All of our flowers were broken down and turned into separate arrangements to deliver to patients in all of our local hospitals. Both of us work in health care and it meant the world to us that we were able to give back to the patients that make our days so much more meaningful."
Spectacular, right?! I'm so glad you joined us for this unforgettable Indian wedding today!
