We introduced you to Shwetha + Nick back in May for their IHNY session! Well this past weekend was the big wedding event at the Hyatt Regency across the Hudson River in Jersey City. I have to say that from the Jersey side of the river you get some absolutely amazing views of the city skyline. The girls over at Réve.ology Events put together a fantastic weekend full of color, energy and life!
Friday night we took a rehearsal dinner boat around a very foggy NYC. Shwetha’s mehndi artists came on board to give everyone who wanted them custom henna designs. I even got one at the end of the night! It’s here for the next 10-15 days!
Saturday was a great day for a wedding. The weather was absolutely perfect! Shwetha looked amazing in her purple sari, I even gave her a hug as soon as I saw her all dressed up! The baraat wrapped around the outside of the hotel and then everyone was lead inside and upstairs to a room with a beautiful mandap and more amazing views of the city. Every Indian wedding is fascinating to me with all the customs and colors, such a great event to be a part of. After the ceremony was a bit of afternoon break then back to getting ready for the evening festivities. The main ballroom was decorated like a fairy wonderland (more pictures on that later!) with green moss and lanterns hanging from trees throughout the room. It was a beautiful evening and now Shwetha and Nick are off in Belize! Have fun you two! – Karen
