If you’re a regular to Maharani Weddings, we are sure you’ve seen a bunch of heartwarming videos that hit us right in the feels, and unknowingly give butterflies in our stomachs. Well, Payal and Chintan’s wedding film by WalkOnWater Productions was all that + a little more. Forgive us for getting a little technical here, but the way these cinematographers retained some of the audio (for instance, the “oohs” and “aahs” from the crowd when they cheered during the Baraat) made us connect with the film so much! In addition, the choice of music built the anticipation of seeing Payal in her bridal attire for the first time, her walking down the aisle, and then tying the knot. The Buckhead Theater was the chosen venue for the ceremony, one that Weddings InStyle embellished with Art Deco motifs, and in varying tones of pearl white. During the Baraat, all the women put on masquerades, which looked super fun and cute! The page boys in their matching blue kurtas, and flower girls in purple and gold lehengas, walked down the aisle holding some adorable signs (don’t miss that part when you watch the video!) We got our first glimpse of the mandap at this point, which looked like a palatial mansion from a movie set! Off white curtains with fringed latkans (tassels) were draped between the pillars, both finished with gold accents and embroidery. The main stage backdrop featured stunning organza drapes with detailed mirror work borders. Payal then made her way to the mandap in a traditional orange-red georgette lehenga, and a tulle dupatta draped like a veil. Erica Bogart Beauty primped our Maharani’s makeup with a coral, matte finish, with bindis all along her brow line, accentuating her statement matha patti. The two were then happily united in nuptial bliss, and jetted off to Hyatt Regency Atlanta for the reception, in a festooned car that read “Ten Years in the Making." Just like the ceremony, the soiree setup looked like an elegant, royal fête. Shades of blue juxtaposed with antique gold made for a visual treat, and the real show-stealer was the stage decor: paneled, damask columns separated framed displays of candles and flowers, and a stunning gold sofa seated the newly weds. Payal donned an embroidered floor-length in midnight blue, while Chintan offset all the blue in a grey suit. Cafe Bombay catered the delicacies of choice and pleased everyone’s palates, while Indaglow Productions had the guests dancing the night away with their dancey music!
