Reena + Milan

While Reena and Milan are from much colder locations, they both loved Scottsdale so much, they couldn’t imagine having their gorgeous Hindu destination wedding anywhere else! It’s no wonder they wanted to have the warm and joyful style wedding in such an amazing place since they are both from two northern states! The beaming bride, Reena is from Chicago, IL and the very handsome groom, Milan, hails from Detroit, MI.

Their wedding weekend started off beautifully. The Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch was a perfect location for the festivities, offering the space and atmosphere one wants most when going through the traditional preparations for a Hindu ceremony. The bride and her ladies celebrated her journey to marriage by receiving the most intricate henna work from a professional henna artist, Purvi with Henna by Purvi. This Mehndi Ceremony left them with the most beautiful patterns on their hands, arms and feet.

The talented photographer that Reena and Milan chose, Harley Bonham, captured some of the most striking and exciting pictures of the celebrations as well as the sweet and intimate moments for this stunning couple! I don’t know if I should say this since I love every couple I work with, but these are some of the most gorgeous wedding pictures I’ve ever seen!

The tall palm trees at the Palm Grove of the stunning Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch, set a stately scene backdrop for the canopy of flowers from the Mandap where the couple sat under for the marriage ceremony. The guests looked like a vibrant jewel box, a riot of color, as they watched the ceremony unfold.

Milan looked debonair (that’s the only possible word for how handsome he looked!) in his traditional ivory and gold brocade sherwani with red accents. Reena was breathtaking in an embellished sari of red and gold with elaborate traditional jewelry and bindi! Both of them had wide, bright smiles throughout the day, being feted by their family and friends. It was truly a wonderful day to behold!
