What happens when a bridal fashion designer’s daughter, who is a fashion designer herself, gets married? You get a celebration that is as stunning as any over-the-top runway show. Neeta Lulla’s daughter, Nishka Lulla, recently tied the knot with longtime beau Dhruv Mehra. The couple took off for Thailand with friends and family for a getaway celebration. The bride’s entire trousseau was designed by Mama Lulla, and every moment of the celebration was captured by photographers and cinematographers at WeddingNama. The WeddingNama team’s same-day edit gives the perfect sneak peek to one of the season’s most glamorous weddings.

We’re taking a look at every moment of this elaborately gorgeous celebration, as told on Instagram by the couple and their family/friends. Continue reading for more!

With just quick break in the middle, Pooja and Gal followed their Hindu wedding ceremony with the second ceremony of the day, a traditional Jewish wedding. Contrasting the bright pink/orange color scheme of the morning ceremony, the afternoon ceremony was awash in shades of pristine cream and white. We love Pooja’s bright and big wedding bouquet!

After a festive mehndi and sangeet party, Pooja and Gal were all set for their big day. And it really was a big day, with not one but two ceremonies, paying to both the bride and groom’s respective cultures and traditions. Up first, the Hindu ceremony, which auspiciously took place first thing in the morning.

A college friendship ultimately made way to romance for Pooja and Gal. After knowing each other for nearly 10 years, Gal decided to surprise Pooja with the ultimate Bollywood proposal. A surprise vacation in Aruba included a private dinner in a mini cabana on the beach — a perfect setting complete with candlelight and a stunning sunset. Fast forward to a wedding celebration that would include both Hindu and Jewish traditions. But first, a pre-wedding mehndi and sangeet party!

After meeting at a graduation for two of their younger family members, Vajeeha and Saleem seemingly instantly became involved in a whirlwind long-distance romance. With Vajeeha in Chicago and Saleem in New York, the two made the effort to see each other with bi-monthly visits, and a fast courtship (within a year) soon turned into a surprise proposal. With the help of his sister, Saleem surprised Vajeeha with a visit to the spot he had first asked her out, the scenic (and chilly!) Lake Michigan. Fast forward to the wedding, which was a perfect combination of traditional rituals and a festive good time.

The nikah ceremony took place in a local mosque, and was followed by a mini reception immediately afterwards. The original plan was to have only the ceremony, with the large reception already scheduled for another date — but with family and friends eager to celebrate, the compromise was a mini reception held immediately after the ceremony. The result is a gorgeous set of photos capturing every heartwarming moment of the day — continue reading for more!
