You're about to meet an adorable Maharani, and the Raja of her dreams, in a series of stunning portraits and candid moments beautifully captured by Sachi Anand Photography. This lucky couple celebrated the first two days of their wedding event in New Jersey, where Rzo Photography and Buds Palola documented the events on video, which we're hoping they'll share with us. The first few shots from this South Asian affair show the bride in a darling, tea pink suit and maroon dupatta, for her Nikkah. Her hair and makeup for that celebration was flawlessly executed by Signature Make-Up by Mavish Gillani, and what a superb job she did! This blushing beauty is picture perfect in every frame! The floral and decor for this loving pair's sofreh was by Samira Hasan Design, and Timeless Creations by Afshan provided all of the other decor details for both their nikkah and mehndi. Day two of their wedding event found them at the Woodcrest Country Club, where they celebrated their mehndi. The bride was a vision of sunshine in a yellow, green and fuschia lengha, and her impeccable look by Makeup by Shafaq Abid brought her Maharani style to the next level — big fan of side braids over here! Just wait until you see the expert treatment Flawless Beauty by Pauline gives her on her reception day! That's coming up next. In the meantime, make sure you check out more details from this delightful duos nikkah and mehndi in the full gallery.
The bride, on how she met her Raja:
"We met through our common family friends. He lived in New York and I was in Maryland so it was a long distance relationship and we dated for 3 years.
We had planned to attend Obama's second inauguration in DC and we waited in line the night before. It was one cold night in DC but just spending that quality time with him in the midst of the huge crowd was so memorable. At the end of the next day we both knew if we can spend 24hrs together with not much food, sleep and in the cold, like best friends we both knew we were right for each other."
On choosing her wedding lenghas:
"I spent hours on the internet. Pinterest was the best way to pin down my choices and then select colors and styles. I printed my favorite designs and colors and made a folder for my mom. My mom flew to Pakistan for my wedding shopping and all the deisgners she worked with said the the printed images were a great help. I was very happy with all my outfits and thanks to my amazing mom and the designers she worked with."
On her hair and makeup:
"For my Nikkah and Mehndi, my best friends Mahvish and Shafaq exceeded all my expectations and did such an amazing job with my makeup. It was so special and comfortable to have my best friends do that for me.
For my reception, my makeup artist and hairstylist Pauline Nobles gave me the perfect look I wanted. I had a trial done a few months ago but the day of, Pauline looked at my outfit and asked me if she could change a few colors and I knew then that I could trust her. I was very happy with the final look. She's just such a pleasant and professional person to work with."
