This beautiful Sikh/Hindu wedding takes my breath away! With two supremely elegant ceremonies, Amita and Aman married and honored both of their backgrounds! Thankfully, Akbar Sayed Photography was present to register and immortalize all the heartwarming scenes taking place at the four-diamond Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace! The amazing view of the Baltimore's Inner Harbor and the hotel’s experienced staff made the big day unforgettable for Amita and Aman. The bride and groom worked together with Elegant Events to plan their lovely double affair that started with a solemn Sikh ceremony where Maharani Amita rocked a majestic Anarkali. Later, Shekiba Najafe embellished our lovely bride one more time and took her hairstyle to another level for her Hindu ceremony with two red roses that went perfectly with her stunning skirt! Nirali Decor designed an exceptional mandap set against a lush backdrop for the second ceremony and helped finished the core of the unions spectacularly! See all the grandeur of these gorgeous ceremonies in our full gallery!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He surprised me with a Christmas gift at his parents house (it looked like a ring box- but really it was a Pandora charm). Later that evening when we got back to my apartment, he completely surprised me with a proposal. It was private, intimate, and he wrote a poem for me. So sweet.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

It was the first dress I tried on! I didn't have a complete vision of my dress, just knew I didn't want the traditional "all red" dress. So I had a beige and burgundy dress for the Sikh ceremony and a mango/ burgundy dress for the Hindu ceremony. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

The décor, the outfits, and the tranquility of both the Hindu and Sikh ceremonies

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

My first "looks" with my family and my husband; watching them look at me in awe just so special

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.

The décor stood out, the centerpieces, colors of the wedding ceremonies- they all integrated well with our outfits and color scheme.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Take your time picking out your vendors. It all marries together on the day of your wedding, but make sure you're confident with whom you choose.


More splendor to come, do not go anywhere Maharanis!
