Today we are featuring a gorgeous Pakistani Wedding, captured by Sonya Lalla Photography

We can’t get over the picturesque Nikkah ceremony of Ameena and Yaseen, which was held outdoors. I love the  red rose pomander accents with the gold chivary chairs. Sometimes, less is more. Ameena looks lovely in her pale gold outfit. The lattice and floral designs of her dark mehendi are beautiful. Yaseen looks very handsome in a white kurta.

For the wedding reception, Ameena chose a stunning zardozi laacha paired with fabulous gold jewelry. In love with bride’s glamorous eye make up and how it is perfectly balanced by a subtle lip color. Yaseen dressed up in a cream sherwani with gold accents and turban. Both Ameena and Yaseen look very happy and radiant.

Hope you enjoy the lovely photos!

Also seen here are outdoor pictures of the couple.

Bursting with personality, infusing Indian + American cultures, and combining contemporary with vintage, the wedding of Shalou and Eric is an ample dose of fun and flair. When Suzi of Q Weddings shared the pictures from this unique Indian wedding, I was ecstatic and could not help admiring the careful attention to detail, and the modern aesthetic of this wedding. I love how the couple’s personalities shine through in every element of this wedding. We are so excited to feature and share this beautiful wedding, and the story of Shalou and Eric, as they were counting down to their to their special day.

New York Wedding: Indian + Norwegian extravaganza at The Plaza

My jaw dropped when I first looked at the stunning pictures of Pooja and Nils’ wedding by photographer, Roberto Falck . Held in the breathtaking backdrop of The Plaza, this cross cultural wedding extravaganza was designed by none other than the celebrity wedding planner, David Tutera.

Pooja looked gorgeous in her hand stitched emerald, red, and fuchsia lehenga during the ceremony, and beautiful in the white bridal gown that she changed into for the reception. Nils looked very handsome in a navy tux. Like everything in this wedding, the jewels fabulous! I can’t get my eyes off the royal polki diamond necklace and earrings that Pooja paired with both her ceremony and wedding outfits.  

The Plaza, which is a national historic landmark and is widely referenced in pop culture, is a dream-come-true wedding venue. Every detail of this wedding is lush, luxurious, and iconic:  the ceremony mandap embellished with countless roses, opulent floral crystal candelabra centerpieces, a spectacular chandelier made completely with gorgeous blooms, and a majestic topiary elephant at the helm of the reception.

Pooja and Nils wedding affair was one-of-a-kind, stylish, and beyond breathtaking festive affair. Most importantly, they look very happy celebrating every minute of it. Here is wishing them a happily ever after!

A big thank you to Roberto Falck Photography for sharing the gorgeous images from Pooja and Nils wedding.

Today we are featuring a beautiful Gujarati wedding of Shruti and Nilesh photographed by Sean and Amanda Photography

Shruti and Nilesh met while attending college in Atlanta, Georgia. The couple got married on a gorgeous fall day in Greenville, South Carolina. The couple tied the knot in a traditional Gujarati wedding ceremony. For the ceremony, Shruti wore red and white “panetar”, which is the sari typically worn by Gujarati brides. She completed her gorgeous ceremony look with a sheer red net veil.

For the wedding reception in the evening, Shruti changed into a very pretty pink and gold lehnga, while Nilesh wore a midnight blue and gold sherwani. The reception was full of fun, and lots of dancing (and yes, there was garba and raas!). The bridal party and the family had some amazing performances lined up. The bride herself performed a beautiful dance along with her bridesmaids.

I  love all the beautiful colors and celebration in this wedding. The couple’s love for one another, their families and their traditions was evident on their wedding day.

Comments Off on Wedding on Wall Street: Deepa + Anuj Featured Engagement, Sangeet, Wedding Ceremonies, Wedding Reception, Wedding Videography

Get ready to be wowed, coz we have something special in store for you! Our lovely feature for today is Deepa and Anuj’s wedding memories, captured beautifully by Memories in Motion.  Set against the backdrop of various landmarks in New York, the couple’s gorgeous wedding was pumped up with energy and liveliness. The wedding highlights feature their engagement session, sangeet, ceremony, and reception.

Deepa and Anuj’s New York engagement shoot started with a romantic walk in the historic Central Park, and a dreamy horse carriage ride around the city. Deepa changed into a churidar suit later that  night, culminating the engagement shoot by the dazzling lights of Times Square.

The couple’s sangeet was at the Battery Park with an amazing view of the Statue of Liberty. The venue was lit up with Chinese lanterns hanging on trees. Anuj wore an entricately embroidered sherwani, and Deepa looked super cute in a baby pink and pistachio green lehnga. Their sangeet was a prelude to what was to follow.

Deepa and Anuj’s wedding day started with the chooda and kaleera ceremonies at Andaz. Our beautiful bride wore a red and green lehenga, and accessorized it with dazzling jewelry. The wedding festivities started with a super fun Baraat that blocked Wall Street for a while. I love how enthusiastic the families look, especially during Baraat and Milnis. The venue was beautifully decorated with gorgeous florals, and a unique mandap. Both Deepa and Anuj were playful during their Jaimala, making the ceremony super fun.

The non stop fun of Deepa and Anuj’s wedding continued with their reception, which was full of action and excitement. Deepa changed into a beautiful gown-like wedding lehnga, and Anuj looked handsome in a tux. The couple got the crowd pumped up with energy with their grand entrance. The DJs were spinning some amazing music, and had the guests dancing until the wee hours.

A big thanks to Memories in Motion for sharing amazing memories from Deepa and Anuj’s wedding.
