I could tell right from the getting ready that this was going to be one epic wedding. This is a story about a bride who couldn’t stop smiling at the thought of marring the love of her life. She was bouncing up and down so excited to finally marry her beloved Vikram. This pretty much continued until the end of the night. The energy, excitement and love at this wedding was unbelievable. I photographed Vikram’s beautiful proposal at the MET last year when he asked Mahima to be his wife. Surrounded by the larger than life sculptures and temples of the Egyptian room at the MET, she said ‘YES’. But I didn’t know their story completely until I was photographing their reception and it was time for Mahima’s brother Akshay to make a speech, or should I say roast? Akshay revealed how his best friend Vikram stole Mahima’s heart right under his nose!
Their beautiful wedding ceremony at the Hindu Temple in Queens was traditional and meaningful. Mahima looked ravishing in a red lengha. As her brothers walked her down the aisle to see Vikram, she was making nervous jokes with her family. I love the picture of their first look at the ceremony, their expressions of happiness and relief.
The reception party at Current, Pier 59 in Manhattan was a totally different vibe. Surrounded by the beautiful Hudson, this venue was the perfect location for the crazy party that followed. Vikram’s flawless moves and Mahima’s twirling sparkling lengha made their first dance the coolest ever! Akshay, Mahima’s brother of course set the pace with his roast and introduced the newly weds and their mischief making love story. The music never stopped for the rest of the night and the dance floor couldn’t have been more pumping. Every single guest at this wedding was having the time of their life celebrating these two gorgeous people.
Congratulations guys, so very happy for you both. XO
