A sneak into a wedding celebration that Vegas will remember for quite some time to come. The festivities for Pankaj and Avnie’s wedding started a week prior to the wedding in Vegas. Baraat arriving on a charter flight from Houston, an open air sangeet, overlooking the Vegas strip, at the Cosmopolitan and finally the wedding at the grand terrace in Bellagio followed by a Gatsby themed reception encompassed a wedding extraordinaire. I had such a hard time compiling a sneak peek. With so many images not making the cut, I am really excited to start putting together the full blog posts. This is just a teaser of whats to come – A mile high crazy baraat, groom on an elephant, a cake taller than me (it does not take much for things to be taller than me but still ), grandeur of the Bellagio backdrop for the ceremony and a chic Gatsby themed reception. The entire weekend was full of moments – Pankaj in the 737 cockpit, Pankaj and Avnie’s groovy performance at the sangeet to old school bollywood songs, pankaj’s friends carrying him after the peethi (wont spoil the surprise of what happened after ), aerial shots of the baraat and the wedding ceremony, heartfelt speeches by family and friends and guests blessing the dance floor with groovy moves till the wee hours – a blockbuster wedding and it will take multiple blog posts to do full justice to the wedding. Congratulations to Pankaj and Avnie. I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Aziz Khan and Kristen Marie Parker the hidden gem of photographers for braving the long hours with Sid and I and helping us create some stunning imagery. A huge big shout out to Tory Cooper for coordinating the most spectacular wedding. Last and certainly not least my cousin Raj for introducing us to this wonderful family.
Full wedding post and vendor credits coming soon on the blog.
