Our Persian bride Anna and Western Jewish groom Gregg were both doctors in New York City, only to meet and fall in love in medical school. Traditional to their cultures and prior to their Park Hyatt Aviara Resort ceremony, the couple was to first meet in a private room with only family members. The bride, wearing her veil, was to have a different type of “first look” with her soon-to-be husband, as the groom is to remove his bride’s veil to make sure it is the woman he is to marry. Prior to the Persian-Jewish ceremony there was also a Katuba signing ceremony, a Jewish marriage contract detailing the husband’s responsibility for and to his new wife. The Ketubah includes a declaration of commitment made by the bride and groom, followed by a joint affirmation of the couples’ connection to God, Torah, and the Jewish people.
Anna and Gregg had a gorgeous Jewish wedding ceremony run by their Rabi in the garden area, followed by a relaxing cocktail reception. After cocktails and the “grand entrance” to the reception, guests immediately moved into a traditional Persian ceremony. Following the two traditional ceremonies, the reception incorporated both cultures into the party, including Persian music, Jewish dancing and a bread and wine ceremony. As tradition has it, Anna remained at Gregg’s right side throughout the reception as the newlywed’s and their guests partied late into the night.
Shannon is American and Sameer is Indian and they made one of the most beautiful couples we know! Sameer was Shannon’s music teacher early on – I guess you could say it was love at first sight for these two. They had an Indian wedding in Texas prior to this gorgeous affair that included a Puja in the early morning before lunch, a Marriot Barrat and a bold reception full of dinner, dancing and love at Bombay Restaurant.
There was an incredible amount of love in the air and we were more than thrilled to coordinate this stunning Indian wedding ceremony and reception for this amazing couple. The reception was bright and colorful including lots of red, orange and gold throughout the table decor and floral design by ArtQuest Flowers. Brooke Aliceon Photography did a great job capturing the details throughout the day and we are so excited to share!

We designed this jaw-dropping elephant photo shoot at a gorgeous private estate in San Diego, surrounded by gardens of trees and open sky. With elegance and uniqueness in mind, our Wedding Elegance by Nahid team created the perfect setting for photographer Justin Lee to capture beauty of the setting.
The elephant, supplied by Have Trunk Will Travel, was draped in bold, beautiful colors, giving the shoot a majestic feel as our bride and groom took their places with the gorgeous animal. Artquest Flowers spread beautiful white roses throughout the shoot, bringing attention to the amazing details surrounding our design.
To add a sense of fun to the shoot we designed an incredible dessert bar to include neatly tucked cotton candy in martini glasses and other colorful candies and desserts displayed in different pieces of glassware and china.

We loved this San Diego Museum of Art wedding so much we can’t stop reminiscing with these gorgeous photos by Braja Mandala Wedding Photography, as featured on Maharani Weddings! Adorations Botanical Artistry did an incredible job with the floral design, adding to the stunning splashes of bright colors throughout the traditional Sikh ceremony and bold reception. The bride was dressed in a beautifully colorful lengha and covered in gorgeous Henna by Henna San Diego.
“Welcome to a floral fantasy courtesy of Adorations Botanical Artistry and Wedding Elegance by Nahid, Maharanis! At the traditional Sikh ceremony, our sweet couple is tying the knot amid bountiful bouquets of red and yellow roses, pink amaranthus, and white hydrangeas, and the scene is an absolute dream. With the help of Henna San Diego, this bride is dressed in a stunning colorful lengha and she totally shines in every pic from Braja Mandala Wedding Photography. Such a beauty! And once she steps into her elegant reception in a deep blue gown, it’s time to hit the dance floor where Riamu Entertainment is bringing the best Bollywood beats!” – Maharani Weddings
