We are always thrilled to see our work grace the pages of Boston Magazines- Boston Weddings. It is one of Boston’s best wedding resources and is filled with wedding inspiration. The magazine has great advice on wedding dresses, venues, photographers, cakes, florists and more. It truly makes for the complete guide to all things weddings, especially with a real wedding feature like this! We love knowing that our photographs of Anita and Rishi’s Indian wedding at the Seaport Hotel may inspire other couples!
A big thank you to Boston Weddings for choosing our work to be featured in such a fantastic publication.
Below is the text from their Real Wedding Feature:
“Back Bay Residents Rishi Shukla and Anita Nathan needed a venue that could accommodate a full-blown traditional Indian wedding, not to mention 340 guests. They found it at the Seaport Hotel in Boston-big enough to house the huge group, and flexible enough to allow an outside caterer to provide top-notch Indian fare.
Like many Indian weddings, the Shuklas’ event was a multiday affair: The celebration kicked off Thursday night with a mehndi ceremony (in which a henna artist decorates the bride, family and friends) and ended at 1 a.m, on Sunday in the main ballroom. “ The whole Indian ceremony is like a play. There are so many symbolic steps to watch,” says Anita, who incorporated as many customary elements as possible.
Between Rishi’s grand entry to the ceremony (he rode in on a white horse) and a big party (called a sangeet) at Mantra restaurant the night before the wedding, the couple managed to bring a bit of India to Boston, and made it a weekend they’d never forget. K.C.”
Notes about the images:
(1) Gold elephants, a symbol of power and strength, topped the intricate wedding cake. (2) Anita traveled to India with her in-laws to design and purchase her wedding attire. (3) The couple, their parents, and the priest gathered on the mandap (Wedding platform) for the ceremony. (4) Rishi made his entrance to the ceremony on a graceful white horse. (5) Every detail featured brilliant color, from bride’s bangles to the vivid bouquet. (6) The tall, bright centerpieces matched the vibrant theme of the ceremony. (7) As part of the three-day festivities, Anita’s hands were decorated with henna during the mehndi.
