Fusion Indian Wedding: Sangnya & Derek

t was a day filled with tons of fun, love and laughter. Right from the start, I could see that Sangnya and Derek had the right idea about their wedding day. The couple celebrated the occasion at the Wyndham Andover. They had surrounded themselves with their closest friends and family, and simply wanted to have a great time celebrating their big day! From the first look, through the baraat, ceremony and reception - you can just see the happiness and excitement on their faces. I was particularly impressed with Derek's crew during the baraat. It might have been the first Indian-fusion wedding for many of his friends, but these guys know how to dance!!  
And how adorable is the bride, Sangnya?! She's one of those ladies that's beautiful and radiant both inside and out. Smart lady - she kept the stress to a minimum and the fun to the max.  
Big shoutout goes to some of my favorite wedding industry talent. Alankar for the stunning decor. Boston Sound & Light for rocking the baraat and reception. You had the crowd on their feet all day and all night. And of course, while Sangnya is already very beautiful, can't give Shreni Patel enough credit for glomming up our lovely bride.  
Congratulations Sangnya & Derek. With lots of love....

State Room Boston Wedding: Monica & Adam

nd we're back for Part 2 of Monica & Adam's wedding celebration. How lucky is Monica to have had two absolutely fabulous wedding dresses? A traditional, pink dress for her morning Sikh ceremony; and then a stunning Badgley Mischka for the evening. Monica conveyed the perfect definition of simple & elegant throughout the day.  
One of the things that I truly adored with Monica and Adam was their enthusiasm for natural, beautiful, outdoor photos. Now if anyone out there knows me, you know that I simply LOVE the time that I get to spend outdoors with the bride and groom on their wedding day. So I couldn't be happier that Monica & Adam wanted to take advantage of as much time together as possible with me. I'm just so happy that we penciled in the right amount of time in-between ceremonies before we needed to move over to the State Room for the Jewish ceremony and evening festivities. A huge thanks to the entire staff at the State Room for always making it so easy to work there!  
The evening was filled with so many beautiful, and colorful details. And of course, the view from atop is always a winner!! Hope you all enjoy the grand finale to Monica and Adam's Indo-Jewish, fusion wedding ceremony. Happy Friday!

Langham Boston Wedding: Monica & Adam

t was a love story that took many years to come to fruition. But you know what they say‚Ķ the best things in life are worth waiting for! I always love working with couples who are having a downtown Boston wedding. There's just something special about being in the city, no matter what season it is. We started off Monica & Adam's wedding celebration at the Langham Hotel Boston, where they held the first of their two wedding ceremonies. Monica's family shared their Sikh traditions during the early part of the day, before we switched gears (and locations) later in the afternoon.  
It's always a pleasure working with Michelle DeVoe of Demiche, and Maricruz Polito of Maricruz Hairstyles. When these two fabulous ladies are on board, I just know the bride is going to be more stunning than ever.  
Thank you, Monica & Adam, for giving me the honor of working with you both during this very special time in your lives. You guys (and your families) were an absolute joy to work with. So without further ado, here's Part 1 of Monica & Adam's Indo-Jewish wedding celebration.


k so here we are for the final day of Hetal & Justin's wedding celebration. What an amazing day it was. We started off the morning with Hetal & Justin getting ready. It was definitely an emotional morning for Hetal as she got ready for the big moment. Thank goodness for good friends, right?! And Mr. Justin -- well he just totally rocked it at his baraat. Between the horse, the sword and the crazy amounts of dancing, I'm going to go ahead and call him a superstar of sorts. The Marble family totally knows how to bring a baraat to life, of course with a little help from DJ Krups at Boston Sound & Light.  
The talented team at Pink Lotus Events worked their magic with stunning decor, florals and so many other creative details. From the elegant fabric mandap to the twinkling tablescapes at the reception, everything looked simply gorgeous.  
I think my favorite part of the whole day was when the dance floor opened up for the night. The photos just say it all. People were up in the air, down on the floor, and everywhere in-between. Now that's what I call a party. And what better way to end the night than to throw those dollar bills in air? I think that deserves a #baller right there.  
Hetal & Justin - you guys were so much fun to work with. It was 3 crazy days of fun, and you both had a constant smile on your faces. Thanks so much for having us be a part of this wonderful celebration. Best wishes for many, many years to come.


etal & Justin's nonstop celebration continues as we move onto their colorful garba night. It was a stunning event put together by the team at Pink Lotus Events. There were so many creative details that really made the entire room come to life. From the Moroccan themed centerpieces, to the adorable napkins and coasters by Allure Invitations - no detail was overlooked. Not only did Hetal & Justin celebrate the evening with traditional garba & raas; but friends and family from both sides really brought their A-game when it came to performances. Justin's family produced a full-on band performance with four sets that really got the crowd rocking and rolling. I think Hetal's overwhelming reaction to the family band says it all. What a fun and festive night! Stay tuned as we come back for the final wedding day extravaganza.
