Nilufer & Redwan Part 1 l Mehndi


This past July, I was the Day-of-Coordinator for Nilufer and Redwan's two day Indian wedding. The first part was a peacock themed Mehndi. Some of you are probably wondering what is a Mehndi? It's a party for the bride and her female loved ones that occurs before she gets married. But with all the guests arriving from all over the world, the lovely couple invited everyone who was attending their wedding day.
During the Mehndi celebration, henna ink tattoos were applied on the palms and feet of the bride and the ladies. The designs were so intricate and beautiful. In India, they believe that the darker the stain left behind, the deeper the love is between the bride and groom. Throughout this dynamic duo’s Mehndi, there were tons of performances by the bridal party, friends and family. At one point, even the groom got up and performed a number with the groomsmen!

Shoba from Alankar Decors decorated the stage and it looked phenomenal!

This was my first Mehndi experience and it was incredible. Thanks to Michelle of Michelle Forbes Photography for these fantastic photos! Details of Nilufer and Redwan's wedding will be posted shortly. Enjoy.

Sweet Planning!

Nargis & Stephen's Wedding


On May 29th, 2011, I was the day-of-coordinator for Nargis and Stephen's Indian wedding at the Doubletree Hotel in Westborough, MA. The day started out bright and early for the bride and her bridesmaids with hair and make-up styled by the talented Noel McKinnon in the Alexander Room.

The bride and groom had their "first look" outside of the hotel and the photo guru, Binita Patel, was there to capture every moment. Afterwards, Binita took the entire bridal party over to the University of Phoenix for some portrait photos. She really can’t take any horrible pictures. The entire day was filled with lots of love and laughter and everyone really enjoyed themselves.

The ceremony and reception took place in the Viking Room with the stage decorated by Prasang Decorators and centerpieces by Jennifer from A Beautiful Bouquet. The centerpieces were created with three hurricane vases filled with flowers and topped with a floating candle. When it was time for dinner, guests were treated to a traditional Indian buffet catered by Bollywood Grill and a decadent wedding cake from Gerardo's Italian Bakery. When it was time to get the party started, DJ Sukh did an amazing job with making sure every guest was on their feet and having a great time. 

Nargis and Stephen, thank you so much for allowing us to take part of your special day. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

Sweet Planning!
