Ben Benvie caught up with today's cute couple before their extraordinary event for a romantic first look portraits session that is guaranteed to take your breath away. Today's blushing bride is an absolute vision in her white, gold and black wedding lengha, and her hair and makeup by Beauty Concept By Shirley Wu are fabulously flawless in each and every frame. Erika's Prince Charming is devilishly handsome in his traditional sherwani and violet, silk brocade scarf. We love the smile on Raja Hasan's face as he twirls his bride to get a good look at her glamorous Maharani style, and are itching to share more incredibly unforgettable highlights from the delightful duo's shaadi, next!

Maharani Erika, on shopping for the perfect wedding lengha:
"This was a bit of a disaster. Not being Desi, it was hard to find a dress I liked that everyone else liked too. I don't think I look good in red, and I'm not a fan of the mix-matched colors schemes which can be common. I tend to like more Indian styles, while my husband's family is Pakistani and prefers their styles, so it was really difficult to find something that we both loved. I tried on several dresses and finally agreed to a dress. His family loved it, and I was assured that when it came in with the modifications, I would love it too. I finally had a chance to go to Toronto to try on the dress two weeks before the reception. I put the dress on and th measurements were wrong. The designer was so sweet and did everything she could to help. She brought out several new samples she had and we found one that was perfect for me. Ultimately, I was very happy with my dress, although it was so stressful at the time! I would highly suggest Naz Fashion Bug in Milton, Ontario. Amazing customer service."
Meet up with me in a bit for beautiful decor, and much more!
