Welcome back, Maharanis! Not too long ago, Captivated Productions introduced us to Indian bride and groom, Manisha and Hardeep, in this stunning film, and we’ve been lucky enough to give you an exclusive look at their spellbinding event once more — this time through the lens of talented photographer, Keith Cephus Photography! Gulmohar Weddings planned this Indian wedding celebration to perfection, and we’re getting reacquainted with the happy couple of the hour in these stunning pre-wedding portraits and wedding day highlights at the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel in Virginia. Maharani Manisha delivers a flawless mug and fabulous bridal fashions in her beautifully captured photos. Our blushing bride’s professional MUA, Makeup by Dina, and hairstylist from Shameem’s Salon & Spa, dolled her up to picture perfection, and her breathtaking looks from Sapana Amin are show-stopping. We’ll be checking out some of her post-ceremony moments when I get back, but before we do, head into the complete gallery for a peek into some of the pre-wedding festivities and even more magnificent shots from the ceremony!
Happy Thursday, Maharanis! I’m so excited to be bringing you more amazing wedding films this week in our first ever Filmy Festival on the Platinum Guide! Opening today’s events is this raw same day edit by Captivated Productions, which features a heart-skipping Indian wedding celebration in Danville, Virginia! The Simply Perfect Event planned this elegant occasion at the The Institute for Advanced Learning and Research, where Maharani Dipal wed the Raja of her dreams, Rahul. Dressed in an ivory white wedding lengha and carrying a striking bridal bouquet comprised of white lilies and red roses, the bride of the hour looked like the picture of perfection as she made her down the aisle towards a wedding stage dripping in crystals that reflected the glow of the lights sublimely. Decor experts from Aayojan did a magnificent job with the event’s look and feel by bringing in the most fabulous Indian wedding decorations that would please any Princess. To complete the festivities in true Maharani style though, the newlyweds called on party perfectors, House of Entertainment, to DJ and light their event — delivering to them and their guests one incredible day to remember!
