After a grand church ceremony, it was time for a traditional Hindu ceremony for this Texas couple. We’re particularly in love with the event design and floral decor, beautifully done by the team of VP Designs. The flower arrangements contrast so beautifully with the purple-lit venue creating a colorful and festive mood for the traditional rituals!

After a mehndi/sangeet that was as festive as a good ol’ hoedown, our Texas lovebirds prepared for two wedding ceremonies. Up first was a traditional Catholic ceremony, set in a gorgeously grand cathedral in the heart of Sugar Land, Texas. We love the bride’s look for this ceremony — the cream-colored sari is a stunningly subtle nod to her South Asian heritage while maintaining the understated elegance needed for a big church ceremony. That bouquet of red roses adds the perfect punch of color to her overall look!

Three (or four) times the charm when it came to this wedding proposal. After attempts in Central Park (the site of their first date) and the Four Seasons Hotel, it wasn’t until the couple was on a beach in Maui that the groom was able to find the perfect moment. Fast forward to a gorgeous wedding in Texas that kicked off with a mehndi and sangeet that embraced the Texas spirit with an all-out cowboys and feathers theme.

Purvi and Jignesh’s grand wedding celebration ended with as big a bang as it started with, thanks to a glamorous reception. We’re especially in love with the sparkling decor, courtesy of the team at Prashe Decor, where shades of emerald and silver are perfectly complemented by cream-colored floral accents. It’s a stunning example of how to take a rich jeweled tone and ground it in a gorgeously elegant and classically beautiful color scheme.

There’s nothing quite like a stunning traditional wedding ceremony to kick off the weekend. Purvi and Jignesh were married in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, where floral decor and colorful touches added the perfect dose of whimsy and beauty to the mandap. We’re in love with Purvi’s bridal look — the gold-colored lehenga is gorgeously set off by the kundan-stone jewelry.

After a festive mehndi and garba party, Purvi and Jignesh continued the celebration with a sangeet, complete with a scenic outdoor venue and belly dancers to entertain their guests. We’re particularly in love with the outdoor setup, where floral arrangements and wispy drapes transformed a gazebo into a stunning sangeet venue.

Proof that some things are really just meant to be, Kentucky-born Purvi didn’t meet Jersey-raised Jignesh until he returned from a stint in China to finish his last year in an internal medicine residency. The two met at a mutual friend’s wedding, where their mothers quickly realized there might be a match to be made — after tricking the unsuspecting pair into meeting right by the wedding cake, the two decided to take a chance to meet up on their own. Eleven months later, the duo were deeply in love and engaged to be married after a beautifully romantic surprise proposal in Jamaica — with hundreds of candles lighting up an oceanside cave, Jignesh popped the question. The rest, as they say, was history, and wedding planning began! The couple kicked off the celebration with a mehndi and garba party. We love how the entire family got into the spirit on the dance floor!
