Soccer. Glitter. Good food. Those are the key elements to Maharani Vaishali’s heart and when she met her beau Daniel, sparks flew faster than soccer balls. Welcome back to another dose of Indian wedding heaven. In these candid photos caught on camera by Jorge Santiago Photography, it is apparent that the bride and groom’s relationship flows effortlessly. For her Indian ceremony, the bride wore a traditional red and gold lengha and was glammed up by Ciel Cosmetics as she got ready for her big appeal. Both the bride and groom made a unique and memorable entrance! The groom enjoyed the limelight on a horse led baraat from Carriage Limo Service while the bride was carried in by her family members on an ivory white palanquin into the Omni William Penn Hotel. The bride was carried to the mandap that was decorated with pops of fresh floral by Bolsinger Flowers, surrounded by statues of Hindu deities. After their Indian ceremony commenced, the bride and groom rode off into matrimony bliss in an antique luxury car from Silver Fox Auto to get ready for the civil ceremony. A lot more photos can be found in the gallery for your viewing delight and peek down below for a chat with the bride!
