Sonia and Bryan were married during a ceremony at Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria, which was the first Indian wedding to be held at Belle Haven, although we have photographed American receptions there it was nice to see it done up in the South Asian way. Nicole Duncan the coordinator over at Belle Haven was an absolute pleasure to work with as this venue always comes highly recommended. Their ceremony was followed by their reception of 600 guests at the NBM, any less in number, the building may have swallowed them as it is just that huge!
Sonia went with more traditional Indian colors, however it went so well with the colors and interior design of the NBM and the linens were just beautifully done. Linens play such a key part in over all appearance of any event and can jazz the room no matter where the event occurs. Prabha Bhambri (No fear ladies, Prabha will have a website shortly!, but in the mean time here’s her contact number 703.759.0068) was the decorator for this affair as well as the Coordinator, it was pretty smooth sailing the whole evening with everything happening on time without a hitch, flawless some would say. LSD Bhangara Dance Team (Don’t know if they have a site or not, however here is a contact for them: Jattness01(at)yahoo(dot)com, please be sure to let them know we sent you!) performed and as always were on top of their game, the lighting team over at John Farr Lighting did a wonderful job with lighting up the NBM and making it even more magnificent than it already is, as if anyone thought it was possible.
We had a blast with the Jolly and Wahi families as they were so cheerful, pleasant, and full of life! I don’t think anyone wanted the reception to end, but as we all know from experience all good things must come to an end… onto some of our favorites from the evening!
