Opulent Indian Wedding: Priyanka + Chaitanya

Priyanka and Chaitanya are a young and modern couple to whom family and tradition are very important. This stunning bride and her handsome groom dreamed of a colorful, elaborate affair surrounded by their loved ones ~ with all the ornate details that make Indian weddings so special and fun. We enlisted design genius Stanlee Gatti to create a spectacular setting for this 600-person event.

Wedding day festivities began with the Baraat - the traditional procession where the groom arrives at the wedding accompanied by music, dancing and celebrating by his family members. A white horse carried Chaitanya to the venue doors, where Priyanka's family greeted the procession with flower garlands. The bride walked down a lush and dramatic petal aisle to the ceremonial mandap, covered in thousands of flowers.

Guests then moved to a poolside cocktail reception, sipping refreshing Caipiroskas {a cocktail of lime, vodka, soda and mint} and nibbling traditional Indian fare and sweets passed by the bride and groom's mothers.

Jewel-like tones of rich purple, royal blue and vibrant green filled the ballroom for dinner, where guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal catered by Amber India. Chaitanya and Priyanka, dressed in a couture gold ballgown for the reception, were toasted with good wishes as they sat in a custom swing. The celebrations continued into the late-night hours, with dancing to Indian and American music woven together by DJ Salim.
