Pooja and Vic started the most important journey of their lives in a fabulous wedding ceremony held at the beautiful ambiance of The Marigold in New Jersey! The joyful guests cheerfully helped the groom to start his wedding day with a joyful baraat procession that arrived at the doors of the venue. Raja Vic, found a drop-dead gorgeous multicolor floral décor and an impressive traditional mandap design, just the perfect scenario to tie the knot with the love of his life! Maharani Pooja walked through a dreamy aisle runner to meet the man of her dreams. For this grand occasion, she chose a delicate and discrete gold and emerald jewelry set that balanced perfectly with the sparkly patterns in her lehenga and choli. Pooja and Vic took their first steps as a married couple as they surrounded the sacred fire and thankfully, no detail escaped the great photo team of Hugo Juarez Photography who managed to take thousands of snaps of all the sweetest and emotional moments of the marriage ceremony! The happiest day of this lovely couple is registered in our full gallery for you to peruse!
Franklin Township, NJ Indian Wedding by Hugo Juarez Photography
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My husband and I went to Mumbai for wedding shopping with our families. Since we only had 2 weeks in India, I made a list of the stores I wanted to visit and had styles in mind from looking at Pinterest, Instagram, Maharani Weddings etc. I knew I wanted a red lengha for my wedding and a champagne/gold dress for my reception. I found my wedding outfit at Benzer and my reception and garba outfit from Kalki. My husband had his navy tuxedo made from Gabbana.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My husband really wanted to do a choreographed first dance. I am pretty shy but knew it was important to him so I agreed. We kept it a surprise for everyone and as it got closer I was so nervous. It ended up being a lot of fun and one of my favorite pictures from our reception was when he dipped me during our dance.
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I'm still in love with my bridal mehndi from Hennafly. I showed Arayna a picture of my dog, Milo, and asked if she could draw him in my mehndi. Before I knew it, she had drawn him perfectly in mehndi on my wrist. It was so unique and made my mehndi so special!
With a premium venue, this wedding was a huge success! Can you imagine the reception? well, don't, check out our next post with all the reception deets!
