It’s always a special treat witnessing an Indian bride get ready for the most important moment of her life: Her fairy tale walk down the aisle to her Raja. This special time includes some serene, reflective moments in anticipation of an exciting new journey. Bill Rice Photo captured lovely portraits of Maharani Shruti while she was adorned by the talented hands of Melissa Edwards and Glam and Glow. They did a fantastic job creating the final bombshell look, and as we always say: a happy, beautiful bride equals a happy, beautiful wedding! Shruti donned a sweeping ruby red sari, artistic mehndi, and was breathtaking in her beauty. Her finishing touch was a beautifully blooming bouquet of white roses. And we are completely obsessed with the turquoise bridesmaids saris the main Maharani chose for her special girls. Scarlet against turquoise results in such an aesthetically stunning contrast! During Shruti and Leo’s first look, they couldn’t take their eyes off one another, and we can’t blame them. This is just the sneak peek of all the upcoming wedding fun. In our next post, we’ll dive into all the sentimental ceremony and reception action. In the meantime, peruse the full gallery by Bill Rice Photo to your heart’s content!
