The dapper groom adds some personal style to his sherwani suit...with some stunna shades on!

The bedazzled bride.

Indian bridal mehndi adorns her hands.

This rustic wedding mandap is stunning! The twisted branches and richly-colored flowers are just spectacular.

The all-important detail shots include red escort cards, mehndi designs, and the ceremony program.

Celebrate good times—come on!

This is a gorgeous outdoor ceremony area. The deep red aisle runner really stands out against the lush green lawn and trees.

The bride and groom participate in the ritual of Jai Mala, where they place vibrant flower garlands around each other's necks.

The first kiss as Mr. and Mrs.

The bride and her bridesmaids showing off their beautiful mehndi.

The bridal party looks amazing decked out in traditional sherwani suits and saris. We love the beautiful contrast of the deep red against the soft beige.

A close-up of the henna design.

These flower arrangements are incredible! The long vases bring a unique and modern design element to the wedding reception.

Origami cranes were used throughout the reception décor.

The groom changes into a classic black tuxedo while the bride slips into a gorgeous beaded and embellished red gown.

The bride shows off her show-stopping gold heels. Can you say fabulous?!?

Model behavior.

This black and white photograph is insanely chic. We love the diamond pattern on the wall.

As if this wedding weren't fabulous enough, the bride and groom opted for Chiavari "ice" chairs—a Chiavari chair with a clear acrylic frame. Wow!

A grand staircase always makes for an amazing photo op.
