SJS Real Wedding: Priya and Shamik

Hope you all had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend. We celebrated ours with a fantastic wedding at the Hilton Parsippany and Mandarin Oriental in NYC. 

It all started with a peacock themed Garba event were guests were delighted with the musical stylings of Foram Shah and her band. 

On Sunday guests made their way to NYC for a Manhattan themed wedding which started with an amazing baraat in Central Park and Columbus Circle. After the ceremonial greeting guests were transported to the 36th floor of the Mandarin Oriental for the ceremony which had a stunning backdrop of NYC. Later in the evening guests packed the dance floor for an evening of dancing. 

We want to thank Elegant Affairs and their team for the gorgeous decor, Moghul Caterers for the delicious food, DJ Manan Entertainment for the music and uplighting, Cinderella Bridez for making our bride look flawless and Alucinarte Films for covering the entire weekend. 

Congratulations to Priya and Shamik.

Asha and Raj started their wedding weekend with a vibrant Mehendi event aboard the Cornucopia Destiny with close family and friends. Guests enjoyed stunning views of the NYC skyline while getting their Mehendi done. 

Friday evening was full of dancing as the couple hosted over 400 guests for their Garba event. Medley Entertainment kept the crowd dancing with classic Bollywood tunes, while Moghul Caterers put out an astonishing spread. 

Saturday morning kicked off with a crazy Baraat down Park Avenue followed by an emotional ceremony in the Starlight Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoira. The weekend came to an end with a stunning Tuscan Inspired reception which had guests dancing under twinkling lights. 

We want to thank DJ Manan Shah for the amazing music and lighting through out the entire weekend as well as Design House Decor for the breathtaking decor which left guests in awe. Special thanks to Alucinarte for covering the entire weekend, BridalGal for the brides hair and makeup and Priti Shah for all the mehendi.
