MECHANICS HALL WEDDING: Hetal & Justin

O
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.

COLORFUL GARBA NIGHT: Hetal & Justin

H
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.

RUSTIC FARM WEDDING: Hetal & Justin

W
elcome back for Day 2 of Hetal & Justin's wedding extravaganza. Their first of two wedding ceremonies was held at Francis Farm, where they tied the knot with an intimate group of friends and family. It truly was an emotional day for Hetal and Justin, starting with a beautiful first look. It had definitely rained the night before, but Hetal was SO amazing to put her inner diva behind her (don't we all have an inner diva?!), and just say to me "these pictures are more important than my wet feet"!! AAAHHH - I love you. It was so great being a part of this ceremony, as I really got to know both families much better. Congrats on tying the know for the first time. Catch us tomorrow as we share Hetal & Justin's garba night festivities.

MENDHI NIGHT CELEBRATION: Hetal & Justin

H
oly moly! 4 days, 2 cultures, 7 seven events and 1 perfect couple. Hetal & Justin's wedding extravaganza (to say the least) was a celebration that won't be soon forgotten. Starting from the mendhi night to the final reception, the couple celebrated in total style. Thank you so much for having me become a part of your family for a few days. It was so much fun! So here we go, we're kicking off a week of Hetal & Justin blog posts with a glimpse at their mendhi night celebration. To say it was an intimate affair would be unfair. Somehow, the family managed to host nearly 200 people at their home. There was mendhi for the ladies, and live singers to get everyone else up and dancing. Even the little ones joined in. And it's always a pleasure working with the team at Pink Lotus Events. They made this event really come to life. Be back tomorrow with a look at the first of their two wedding ceremonies. Until then, Happy Monday.

HYATT REGENCY WEDDING: Nina & Krishna

H
ope everyone is having a great Memorial Day. We're back from a whirlwind weekend to wrap up the final segment of Nina & Krishna's wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge. I think the one thing that stands out the most to me about this couple is not just the couple themselves, but the two wonderful families that they come from. Throughout the entire day, our whole team felt completely taken care of and truly like a part of the family. It's that soft of connection that always makes us work even harder and gives us a real sense of excitement in what we do. So THANK YOU guys, for trusting what we could do for you and enjoying your day along the way. Because I won't lie... it was a long day filled with blessings, ceremonies and more; but at the end of the day when it came time to party, the guys at Premier Entertainment threw one crazy party! 
 
Congratulations Nina & Krishna. Can't wait for you guys to move to Boston so we can actually hang out as friends. Happy Monday!
We started the morning with a 7am (yes, 7am!!) first look in the courtyard of the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge.
I think this is my FAVE photo from the first look. It's just so REAL.
Nina - you look absolutely beautiful walking down the aisle.
And I think Krishna agrees!!
AAHHH - I just live for little moments like these. The moments that they don't even realized happened.
Ok, so here's my second favorite lady of the day - Krishna's sister. This girl has an amazing sense of humor and is always smiling.
Making it official folks!
And now for a little tradition and fun. Let's see who can get the other better!!
Honestly, I think it might be a tie.
And as a final piece to the ceremony, the ladies from both sides of the family come to bless Nina well in her new life with Krishna. AAH, you're just so adorable Nina. MWAH!
I was so excited that we had a little time to head down to the Charles River before the reception began to get photos of Nina & Krishna in their reception out.
I don't think we could have asked for a nicer evening.
Oh please, guys! Stop it.
This view of the city just never gets old.
And then the sun decided to set just in our little corner of Cambridge.
Alankar Decorators did a beautiful job bringing this room to life for the evening reception.
We rolled into the first dance...
And then these guys just held each other so tight for a minute. It was so sweet.
Nina's dad got up there to give one heck of a funny speech.
I mean he literally had everyone cracking up!
Even the little ones.
But maybe these guys take the cake for the evening. Krishna's college buddies had a few pretty hilarious secrets to reveal about this picture perfect gentleman.
I think they even caught Krishna by surprise a little.
Ok, and how amazing is it that Krishna then got up to play a piece for Nina.
And now it's time to party!
I'm going to go ahead and say that these guys had just a little bit of fun :)
Congratulations Nina & Krishna! What an awesome night, and best wishes for all the years to come.
