After the lavish pre-wedding rituals ended, it was time for the most important day of Shahzeen & Steven's lives. The gorgeous ceremony saw our Maharani wear the traditional white accompanied by her beautiful bridesmaids in baby pink dresses. With the dazzling ocean backdrop and by the stunning atmosphere, you could know instantaneously that it was going to be just incredibly magical and that was the case indeed! Seriously, this couple is just something else! As we will see in today's gallery thanks to Novia Mia Photography, taste and style were the constant with this grand jubilee. The wedding coordination from The Paradisus Playa del Carmen was at the top of its game for sure! So, ladies, we know you are going to be loving this bash as much as we did.

Our three-day wedding extravaganza took place at the beautiful Paradisus Playa del Carmen resort in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, during Cinco de Mayo weekend. Since our wedding weekend took place during Cinco de Mayo, we appropriately themed first night, Welcome Party,a Mexican Fiesta! We used bright floral décor to play up the stunning backdrop of the tropical environment. The night concluded with an authentic Mexican folklore dance performance.
The second night was the Sangeet, and many of our guests had never been exposed to any sort of Indian wedding festivities. However, they were fully immersed themselves within the Indian culture from dressing in festive Indian garb, to dancing the night away to Bollywood tunes; having the time of their lives! Our bridal party, friends and family all gave stellar dance performances which we will remember for a lifetime. When it came to décor, I wanted to set the mood by using a peacock palette with gorgeous tones of purple, teal, and royal blue.
The third and most important day was our ceremony and reception. Our ceremony took place on the Gabi Bridge against the backdrop of beautiful ocean. I wanted to keep an ultra-modern and chic look for ceremony and wedding, by using clear acrylic table, chairs, and gazebo, and all-white floral decor. Our ceremony was inter-faith and combined rituals from both my Muslim faith, and my husband’s Jewish faith. After a sentimental and emotional ceremony (not a dry eye in the house!), we kept the celebration going at the Gabi Club where we had the most beautiful reception, and where all 150 of our guests burned up the dance floor!
