After their breathtaking ceremony, the talented Ishan Fotografi’s eye-popping images caught and reflected the most tender moments of this cute pair before their grand reception. The lovebirds had the chance to pose for the camera in a fabulous garden photo shoot wearing their glam evening outfits. Mayuri all dolled up by Cinderella Bridez exuded glam in an exquisite embroidered light gold net style gown while her Raja Krishna picked an elegant navy blue suit with brown shoes that made him stand out from the crowd as he danced with his bride. The newlyweds prepared a perfectly choreographed first dance that certainly made an impression on their guests! To make the night even more special, DJ Sagar Shah was recruited to play the most vivid Bollywood beats to enliven the dance floor. Elegant candelabras decorated the indoor wedding reception venue along with a sparkly draped stage and tall floral centerpieces all in pink and white hues. Perfect for the couple’s romantic themed celebration! Enjoy all the incredibly lovely images in our full gallery!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I always knew Krishna was going to propose, I just didn't know where or at what exact given moment. His parents took us on a mini vacation to Disney World, it was the first vacation I took with his family so that was always a very special place for the both of us. A couple of years later, Krishna planned a weekend getaway for us, he convinced me we needed to go to the 'Food and Wine Festival' at Epcot. One night during the trip after we finished watching the fireworks, he got down on one knee, said the sweetest things (I don't remember much because I started crying) and asked me to marry him! After that we just basked in the moment, there's something magical about being proposed to at the most magical place on Earth!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Krishna and I along with our families got most of our clothing from Nazranaa in New Jersey. It was a special experience for both families.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We received so many compliments about the food and the venue. Everyone enjoyed the food so much, we catered from BAPS Shayona, and a local Indian restaurant in Connecticut called Mint Leaf. Our wedding was held outside, with the reception being indoors both at Aqua Turf Club in Connecticut.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There are two, the first would have to be the first look Krishna and I did in the morning. looking back at the photos, I'm so glad we did. It was an hour of us just soaking it all in and really enjoying each others company along with some quiet time before the day began. The second would have to be the reception. Everyone loved coming together and celebrating as a family. Weddings always turn into mini family reunions and everyone had a great time, eating, drinking and dancing.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Divide and conquer, give family members and friends tasks and remember you don't have to do everything alone! Also the day of, just let everything go and enjoy being in the moment. The wedding may or may not be as perfect as your Pinterest board, but none of that will matter!
Enjoy your day ladies and don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for more over the top Indian wedding celebrations!
