It was a fabulous Indian wedding when Pritiksha and Jay sealed their love story with an epic Indian wedding.
The bride’s glam squad, including her mother and aunty, spent hours preparing Pritiksha for the most important event of her life. Dressed in an elaborate red and gold Lehenga with gold and diamond jewelry and an eye-catching tikka, our Indian bride looked like a dream. The henna design on her hands and feet from the mehndi was exquisite.
Joyful moments were enjoyed as all the ladies got ready for the wedding and nearby, the barat was underway.
The loud and colorful procession led to the Grand Empire Convention Center where the wedding ceremony and reception would be held. Everyone danced and sang songs as colored smoke filled the air. There was no mistaking, a fantastic wedding was happening today.
The groom was led to the mandap for some ceremonial rituals before Pritiksha arrived. The bride’s entrance was dramatic and all eyes were on her as she walked into the mandap that was adorned with sequined fabrics and flowers. The room full of happy guests witnessed the traditional indian wedding ceremony, and soon Pritiksha and Jay were Mr and Mrs!
Afterward group photos with family and friends, we went to Adamson Estate for a photoshoot of the couple with the bridal party. The lush green backdrop of vine-covered buildings was great. Just enough color but not too detailed since everyone was dressed in bright outfits and sarees. The couple had brought some props with them, including a gold Mr and Mrs banner and we took some fantastic individual portraits and couple portraits of Pritiksha and Jay.
The reception mood was very vibrant, moody, and elegant, with a midnight blue theme created by the lighting, draping, and decorations. The bride changed into a sparkly, off-the-shoulder evening gown and looked a vision. Pritiksha and Jay performed an impressive first dance together and there were Bollywood-style choreographed dances by friends and family. Then it was time for some great food and drink with speeches throughout the night.
The wedding cake had five tiers with swirls at the base and the bokeh effect from the lights made it look so splendid. The couple cut the cake together and fed each other as tradition goes before it was served for the guests to try. Then it was time for more dancing. It’s always time for more dancing at an Indian wedding and we often get dragged onto the dance floor for a few rounds. We think we bring the moves quite well.
