Congratulations to Shrey and Akshay, or as their friends affectionately call them, “Akshrey”. What a magnificent wedding they had at Hilton Boston, Woburn! The day was filled with a dazzling display of colors, music and joyous energy!
The day started out with the bride being draped in her beautiful wedding Sari, and adorned with traditional Indian jewelry. The groom then was honored with the Baraat, Akshays wedding procession. Everybody was going wild as the groom paraded around the hotel on his horse surrounded by guests dancing ecstatically to the intoxicating beat.
The Puja ceremony was up next where the groom is ritually welcomed into the family by the brides mother. The wedding ceremony began as Shrey, fully adorned in traditional garb, was was then carried to the wedding Mandap (sacred stage) on a Palki (Palanquin) for the ceremony.
After the richly ornamented ceremony on the Mandap, the couple had their Vidhai (farewell to the parents) ceremony followed by a fun ride-around in a decorated rickshaw, (mini three wheeled Indian taxi). The couple then changed into party attire and the toasts, dinner, and dancing went full blast till the late hours of the night.
Big thanks to Sayjal Menon and Ambika Patel of Blue Print Occasions for coordinating this extraordinary day and to Deejay Yogz of Boston Sound and Light Company for inspiring the guests with his insanely hot grooves.
Please join me in celebrating this awesome couple, and enjoy the selection of highlights from the day!
