After a dreamy proposal, Jenny and Shawn exchanged vows at the beautiful St.Thomas The Apostle Catholic Church in a gorgeous Christian marriage ceremony in front of their big families! House of Talent Studio had the honor of chronicling the lovely celebrations. The renowned photographer captured beautiful Maharani Jenny being dolled up by the beauty expert Heena Das Beauty. Her low bun hairstyle was embellished with a stunning cathedral length veil matching her floral lace white wedding gown. I absolutely adore the soft lavender sarees wore by the charming female entourage and the white roses bridal bouquets that perfectly went along with the sweet floral arrangements created for the ceremony by Pedestals Floral Decorators. The lovebirds were declared husband and wife and a bubbly exit from the church waited for them along with tulle garlands which gave them the best traditional sendoff ever! Peruse the incredibly graceful images caught by House of Talent Studio in our full gallery!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
First time in New York...First time in Central Park...and I got proposed!!
I went to New York a few weeks ago thinking we were going to do our E-session that Friday and spend the weekend with the family. Little did I know Shawn planned a proposal in the middle of the E-session.
So after I landed in New York we headed over to Central Park later that Friday for our E-session. As we were walking around the park, I noticed Shawn was on his phone texting more than usual because when he is with me he barely uses his phone. I thought to myself “hmm I wonder what is going on?”, but I just ignored it and thought it’s probably his work or friends,(but it was our siblings who got there so early to decorate the place and trying to see how far we were from the spot, Love you guys!)
A few minutes later as we were getting closer to the spot, Shawn asked me if I needed to use the bathroom. I said no (little did I know he was trying to get me away so he can talk to the photographer, Sudeep about his plan). Since I said no, Shawn and Sudeep went to the bathroom and then a few minutes later they both came out together. I thought to myself, “Wow they waited for each other? “ After the bathroom break, we continued our shoot. We then took a quick break because we got tired of walking. As soon as Shawn and I sat down, the photographer said he will go ahead to find a good place to set up the camera and that he’ll call Shawn when he is ready. A few minutes later Sudeep called Shawn to head over. We got up and started walking over the Bow Bridge. As I was walking down the bridge, I saw candles and flowers by the boat dock to my right and I thought to myself “OMG someone is going to get proposed” and really wanted to see it but I thought we would run out of time since Sudeep is waiting for us. We continued to walk and then I noticed we were walking towards the proposal place that I noticed from the bridge and went “OH MY GOD!” That’s when it hit me. It was all for me… Words cannot express how happy I was. The place was so beautifully decorated with candles, rose petals and pictures of us and we had a whole audience screaming for us from the bridge. The funny thing is I was kind of mad at Shawn before all this. Before I came to New York I was wondering why he would set up an E-session without even proposing to me. I even tried to get him to cancel the e-session lol. But now I see it was all part of the plan and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect proposal.
