For Meerat and Alay, The Palace at Somerset Park was the perfect venue for a fairytale reception event. The space, replete with chandeliers and a magnificent spiral staircase, was beautified even further by the talented team at Elegant Affairs, who adorned the ballroom with candles, pink and white florals, and graceful drapings. The incredible team at Studio Sheen Events once again took care of all the behind the scenes action, and all events went off without a hitch! Matching the stunning ambiance was Maharani Meerat, who was utterly stunning in a petal pink lehenga custom designed by a family friend, statement jewelry by House of Marigold, and hair and makeup by Jaikirti Patel. This wedding had so many lavish touches we don’t even know what to begin writing about! From a sleek Corvette from Gotham Dream Cars to live entertainment by the incredible Raghav, this couple knows how to celebrate in style! Guests were in heaven as they feasted on flavorful food by Moghul Catering and a six-tiered cake by The Palace at Somerset Park. The celebrations continued on the dance floor as Premier Entertainment whipped guests into a frenzy with their infectious beats!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one?"

Alay and I met in high school - he was a sophomore and I was a freshman. We quickly became best friends and dated through high school and college. After growing up together and navigating the many challenges of our teen and young adult years together, we knew we would spend our lives with each other.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

My bridal lengha was inspired by a Sabyasachi lengha I had in mind after many weeks of online researching and 'Pinteresting'. What I loved most about the dress was the long sleeve look with the ornate neck detail. The lengha was custom made in India by a relative who is a designer. I knew I wanted the blouse to be scarlet red, however my designer pushed me out of my comfort zone and suggested the unique color combinations of a mint green lengha and a yellow dupatta. I loved how she made all the colors work together, while still staying true to the style of my original inspiration lengha.

Have a fantastic weekend Maharanis! We'll be back on Monday morning with another beautiful wedding for you!
