SJS Real Weddings: Shivani and Pratik

We are back in New York City after an eventful weekend in Miami. 

Our bride and groom celebrated a three day weekend full of festivities at the Trump National Doral Miami. The events kicked off with an energetic Sangeet/Garba where friends and family prepared over six performances, including a Jimmy Fallon inspired Lip Sync Battle, that had guests on their feet the entire night. 

Saturday morning started with a little drizzle which soon became a heavy rain. But that did not stop our bride and groom from celebrating their love. The ceremony continued as planned with one of the best baraat's we have ever had, with guests dancing in the rain. Followed by a gorgeous outside ceremony that not even a little rain could ruin. 

The weekend came to an end with a stunning gold and white reception where guests danced the night away and celebrated the love of the new Mr. and Mrs. 

We want to thank all the amazing vendors that stood by us all weekend, rain or shine: Otto Harring Photography, Walking on Water Video, DJ Volcanik Entertainment, Cameron Keating Events, Susmita Patel, Amy Palma and the entire team at the Trump National Doral. 

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Here are some of our favorite fall inspiration photos:
