Maharanis! You are just in time to get a good dose of glam and sophistication inspiration from the grand Indian wedding of Sneh and Pranav. There is so much beauty in the photos that Studio Nine Photography + Cinema delivered today and that showcase a glimpse of our couple's sincere love and great style! Maharani Sneh was completely decked out in bridal style with a charming prince-princess mehndi design thanks to the great henna artistry services of Mehndikalogie, and was embellished with a floral hairstyle and makeup also meticulously styled by the highly experienced Flawless Beauty by Pauline. She chose a wonderful deep red lehenga, beautifully adorned with shimmering floral patterns and covered her hair with a flowy red dupatta to complete the graceful ensemble. Our bride and groom saw each other, all dressed up and ready for their wedding, in a romantic first encounter that was followed by a magical outdoor photo session you can see in our full gallery!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Our story began in December 2015 when we met on the infamous dating website "Coffee meets Bagel". Little did we know that our story had actually began a few months before then when our parents had tried to set us up. Having heard the words "Biodata”, we had both instantly reacted with a big "NO”! Clearly, destiny had other plans for us.
We officially first met on the evening of Jan 1st, 2016 at the vibrant Graffiti Bar in Philadelphia. The spark of new years had waned for most but the fireworks continued for us. We knew we had something special to hold on to. Our love continued to grow over numerous shared moments that included brunches, travel, and adventures. We both realized that we’re each other’s partner-in-crime!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew that I wanted to do a red lengha. We went wedding shopping in Gujarat and tried on a few outfits, nothing really seemed like it was the one. So I took a break and started focusing on my husband and bridal party outfits. Our time for shopping was limited because I could not get more than 2 weeks off from work and we have a lot of family we wanted to visit as well. So one day I had made a decision that the next outfit I see and like, will be it. I got so lucky but I walked into a store and saw a gorgeous outfit on a mannequin -- which then became my wedding outfit :)
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I'd say choreographing and coordinating the dances. I've always had a passion for dancing and I was so happy that our closest friends and families agreed to dance at our wedding -- in the end I ended up choreographing about 7 dances!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I would say food and the music
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Just the entire day felt so magical. I know people always say it's such a special day. I think with a years worth of planning that moment is often lost but then the day comes and it's just something so unique and special to you and your husband. I am happy just the way it was.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't over think it. If you like it, go with it. If you don't, you don't. I know it's hard planning a wedding with a full-time job etc. but try to take one weekend and enjoy
Stay tuned for more wedding inspiration, up next!
