Nipa and Sujal went above and beyond to dream up their fairy-tale Indian wedding event. The couple memorialized their big day with Noreen Turner, and the resulting photos are a whimsical and refreshing treat. Sujal joyously led his baraat procession, dancing to the Courtyard Marriott Downtown Philadelphia venue while signifying his joy at marrying his one in a million Maharani. Meanwhile, Nipa was a vision in a chic red lehenga and bombshell makeup by Mack Stylist. She was chaperoned by her adoring family down a majestically fringed tapestry to her equally majestic mandap. Wild trees served as the four pillars of the mandap, and was the most romantic possible centerpiece for the special day. Here at Maharani Weddings, we are massive fans of bringing the outdoors inside, utilizing fresh foliage, candles, and vibrant linens, and this one was a total masterpiece! All the design elements at this ceremony will not soon be forgotten. The event ended with cheers and applause congratulating the new couple as they got ready for their reception with banging musical stylings from Magic Mike! We have all the photos from Noreen Turner brimming in the full gallery. And scroll below for a description of the day from the event's photographer!
Description of the Day from the Photographer:
Nipa and Sujal's wedding weekend began with an open house style Mendhi ceremony with friends stopping in from all over the country to have their henna applied. Afterwards Sujal and his family held the Puja ceremony in the couple's home. That evening all of the guests celebrated our bride and groom at the Sangeet complete with a Dohl and live dancers. Guests partied the night away in preparation for the next day's proceedings. The following morning Nipa got ready with family and friends and looked absolutely stunning. Sujal, after finishing his prep, had a great time at the Baraat. In an untraditional turn, Nipa & Sujal opted for a stuffed elephant that also had a motored and carried Sujal through the streets of Philadelphia for his high-energy and vibrant baraat. The ceremony was stunning and the mandap was absolutely breathtaking. The four pillars were huge trees and were adorned with amazing details. Nipa had snacks and light refreshments during the ceremony as well as televisions that were showing the live ceremony so that guests not of Hindu descent, could watch was was going on close-up. After the ceremony family gathered for photos and then we made our way to City Hall for more photos of the couple and bridal party. After a short break the second set of preparations began. Once again Nipa was radiant! We went to Rittenhouse Square and City Hall again for a second set of photos with Sujal then it was off to the reception. The reception at the Crystal Tea Room was decorated beautifully with bonsai trees at each table. Handmade lazy susans were crafted from mahogany and served the guests family style. Nipa anad Sujal celebrated with family and friends in a lovely way. Our couple is so loved by everyone and enjoyed every second of their celebration. Nipa and Suajl make everyone feel like family. They are one of the kindest couples I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Every interaction with them along the way has been a pleasure!
The sensational reception soiree up next!
