High on the heels of an unforgettable pre-wedding event at The Sterling, and a spellbinding Indian wedding ceremony at Leonard's Palazzo, Maharani Nancy and Raja Mike are walking on air and ready to celebrate their initiation into married life with a reception to remember! MaxPhoto NY photographed the most sensational details from their post-ceremony soirée, which featured some seriously breathtaking floral and decor work by the talented team from Stylish Events, and candid moments as the newly minted newlyweds took to the dance floor for their first dance. Donning a powdery-pink reception lengha and picture perfect hair and makeup by Kanwal Batool, today's Indian bride looked like a million bucks as she posed for portraits and had the time of her life. Even though the party had to end sometime, you can still revel in all the celebratory details from it in the complete gallery! And while you're in there, don't forget to check out Maharani Nancy's awe-inspiring mehndi design by Henna For All!
Maharani Nancy on her wedding style:
"My color theme was coral white and gold. I wanted an elegant, fancy, upscale looking wedding. I also wanted a lot of flowers, since I love flowers."
On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:
"I enjoyed all of it, even though it was the most stressful thing ever. I got exactly what I wanted."
On her most memorable wedding day moment:
"Yes, our first dance. It was the most magical moment ever, I could not stop smiling."
On her and her Raja's first dance song:
"It was Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. We both were listening to a few different love songs and imaging ourselves dancing to it, once we got to this song, we loved it so much that we decided to take dance lessons to have a great looking first dance."
On the role her family and friends played:
"My family, as well as my in laws, were a huge help every step of the way. Without them, none of this could've happened. Planning a wedding in 5 months was not easy at all."
Final thoughts from the bride:
"I am so thankful for all my vendors without them this wedding could not be perfect as I imagined. Mendhi was done by a sweet woman, Monita - Henna for All she had done such an amazing job and is very creative. The venue was Leonard's in Great Neck, a beautiful venue with great looking halls and the General Manager Eric he is such a great person, he had done so much for me, his whole staff was the best, they catered to all my needs and more. The cake was carrot cake and raspberry tart filling in yellow cake and was by Francesco's Bakery in Bethpage, the best bakery ever! And the whole decor was done by Stylish Events, the Owner Kashi was a big help with creating the look I had wanted. The caterer was Tandoor, Vinnie who is the owner made it perfect with adding such great variety of food. The DJ was The Dhol Xperience, Jassi who was the DJ 's coordinator and who was a BIG help with so much especially my timeline. She had everything done in an orderly time And last Max Photos the best photographer EVER!!!!!!! Captured every specific moment and detail of my wedding and beyond. Thanks to May who was amazing and very sweet with all her help and the whole team at Max Photos for everything. Could not thank all my vendors enough with all their help."
