Today we travel to lovely North Carolina where Awanti and Alok were married in a joyful Indian ceremony followed by a swanky reception gala at the Grandover. Further beautifying the elegant surroundings was the planning and decor team from Katen Shah, who always come up with stunning design concepts to elevate a space to its full glam potential! Their efforts were apparent in the divine ceremony setup that included a regal gold and red mandap dripping in crystals and lush florals. We’re loving the delightful iron wrought backdrop of the mandap, featuring whimsical vines and leaves. So pretty! We also have to spend some time raving about Maharani Awanti’s impeccable bridal look. She was adorned in a sparkly red lehenga, an elaborate kundan maang tikka, and layers of glittering necklaces that tranformed her into a total Queen. Topping off the look was her radiant makeup and a classic updo by the always incredible Belladev Studio. Such a breathtaking beauty. We loved how happy handsome Raja Alok was when he first caught a glimpse of his glamorous bride. These two look made for each other! Alok danced into the venue after a joyous baraat featuring sounds by DJ Rang. The lovebirds reunited under the mandap and were married in a rich ceremony surrounded by all their nearest and dearest. Peruse the full gallery by the amazing Vesic Photography for all the beautiful photos. We’ll be covering Awanti and Alok’s dazzling reception in a jiffy, so we’ll see you later this morning with all the deets!
