Occasions By Shangri-La has spared not even the smallest of details at The Phoenician's outdoor ceremony venue, where today's stunning Indian bride is set to marry the Raja of her dreams. Pooja Mehta, of Makiaj Beauty, is the portrait of Princess perfection in her Moghul-inspired bridal fashions and her hubby-to-be, Shimon, is excited as can be as he makes his way to the divinely decked out venue via a traditional baraat procession! Portraits By Andra captured these extraordinary highlights from the lovely couple's Hindu-Jewish fusion fairy tale, and these Indian wedding details planned out by DB Bridal Expos are everything we've dreamed of. Following their I dos, the newlyweds treated guests to a fabulous luncheon, where they were transported to the deserts of Rajasthan as they dined under one of Raj Tents' incredible creations. From The custom-designed Star or David embracing the Aum, to Pooja's stunningly incorporated Hebrew mehndi by Ekta Kansara, it's just the beginning of this beautifully blended event. Later today, we'll unveil highlights from the newlyweds' Israeli ceremony under the stars and their exquisite black and white reception celebration! For now, make sure to check out the rest of these Hindu ceremony highlights in the complete gallery!
Maharani Pooja, on her beautifully blended mehndi design:
"My mehndi was done by none other than the super talented Ekta Kansara from Detroit, Michigan. She incorporated Shimon’s name in Herbrew on my hand in her mehendi and also on my arm which was traditionally done in the olden days to signify ha bride's committement to her beloved in a romantic way."
Sit tight, my dears! Things are about to get even more romantic with a captivating, evening ceremony and reception!
