You can see the love between the newlyweds in these images, shot by Hiram Trillo Art Photography, as they share intimate moments throughout their endearing wedding ceremony. Before the wedding reception, our Maharani made a quick ensemble change to a gorgeous red reception outfit with gold details, while Anil was decked out in a navy blue and black tuxedo. Alyssa and Anil shared precious moments in their wedding reception portraits as they helped each other with the finishing touches on their post-ceremony outfits. You can tell these two love to entertain as the decadent wedding reception planned by K.I. Weddings is underway, they are awe-stricken with excitement with the reception hall filled with champagne colored floral arrangements and table settings! Family and friends celebrated as the couple danced the night away as husband and wife! Check out the full gallery for more photographs of the lovely couple and the extravagant wedding reception.
The bride on her wedding style:
"Anil and I are into a modern style. Clean lines with lots of neutral colors with gold accents. Which is what our inspiration was for the reception. I used a lot of cream, blush, and gold accents.For the Sangeet, I wanted it to be bold bright colors such as turquoise, orange, fuchsia, and red. I wanted it to feel more of a traditional Indian flare with a modern twist. Of course I used a lot of inspiration from Pinterest to help create the look. A friend of mine from college (Shaun Rao) was working for Prashe Decor at the time and helped create an amazing look for both my Sangeet and Reception. Ultimately, Prashe Decor handled the set up for both events."
On special moments:
"We had a Bride vs Groom Field Day the day before our wedding. Our families, especially my brother in law Naushad (the same one who set us up), really helped to make this event special. Naushad arranged "Let's Play before the Big Day" shirts with "Team Bride" or "Team Groom" on the back, as well as, Indian and Texas BBQ and sno cones. We played kickball, tug of war, and several other smaller field games. Everyone loved being able to relax and unwind before the wedding day."
On the wedding day details:
" One of my favorite things about the reception was our "cake". After several cake tastings, Anil and I decided to do away with the traditional wedding cake. We felt like no one ever really ate the cake at weddings so we decided to do something else. Anil is a cookie monster. His favorite is French macarons. We had seen several macaron towers before and decided to add a twist. With the help of a fabulous macaron genius and local shop owner (Sukaina from Macaron by Patisse) we decided to create a tower that combined Anil's favorite dessert, the macaron cookie, with my favorite dessert, cream puffs. The result was a beautiful multilayered faux cake with alternating levels of macarons and cream puffs.
The other thing was our photographer and videographers. Our photography was Hiram Trillo. He really understood our style and the moments we wanted to capture. He was flexible and worked his way into the family to capture candid shots and pictures that portrayed the feel of the whole weekend. Our videographers were Hoo Films based out of California. They were also fantastic. They worked well with Hiram and also really captured amazing memories."
Bye for now, but I'll meet you back here for another stunning wedding!
