Nikki Weds Sarang Day Three - Wedding Day
November 25, 2016 dawned clear and cool in classic Arizona fall fashion and the LightRain Images photographic team was excited to photograph day three of Nikki and Sarang’s Indian wedding and Baraat. This day’s events were being held outdoor at the newly built The Garden at Chateau Luxe in North Phoenix, in the Valley of the Sun.
Nikki and Sarang got ready at their respective beautifully lighted and spacious bride and groom suites. The groom’s room is provided with a billiards table designed to keep him and his groomsmen happy while the gorgeous bride made the final preparations with her bridal party in their two dressing rooms.
It was mid-morning when Sarang mounted a majestic and beautifully decorated white horse and the Baraat music began to play. A dohl drummer added to the excitement of the large crowd of family and friends who were ready to dance and lead Sarang in toward the bride’s family and the wedding ceremony. After a warm welcome by the huge crowd of bride’s friends and family, Sarang entered the magnificent ceremony site and was seated under the beautiful mandap.
At last, the moment Nikki and Sarang had been waiting for and planning for many months arrived as Nikki, the gorgeous bride, in her incredible bridal sari was walked down the aisle of flowers first by her special male relatives, then by her father. A Hindu priest performed the ceremony and brought this beautiful couple into married life.
After the ceremony, a scrumptious lunch was provided right at the garden for their 500+ guests with several food and dessert stations. What a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony it was! Enjoy and stay tuned for the big reception night!
For their private first look, Nikki and Sarang met at the side garden lined with trees. This is always a swoon-worthy moment (even for us!) for our sweet couple as you can see. Don’t they make such a handsome couple? You could really feel the love and excitement!
