As the sun’s warm rays engulfed the morning of Shivani and Sagar’s wedding day, there was no doubt that it was going to be beautiful from the very beginning. Family and friends had gathered from all over to celebrate the couple’s special event in the beautiful desert city of Scottsdale. Indian weddings in Phoenix are always exciting, but when we saw the details that had gone into Shivani and Sagar’s preparations, there was no doubt it would be an event to remember!
Shivani was donned in glorious red and gold attire, complete with accessories that showcased the bold red color, all while accentuating it with dark greens and soft creams. Intricate henna detailing decorated her arms, and it was obvious that she was ready to take on the day! But her smile and happiness was what really stole the show, and when the groom saw his bride for the first time, it was crystal clear she completely captured his heart once again. Speaking of the groom, his attire was striking as well; mirroring the gold and red theme of his bride, while bringing his own touch with a fantastic, bright red turban, and accessories.
Shivani and Sagar decided to do a first look shoot, and we are so glad they did! They were all smiles even before they laid eyes on each other and the photos that were captured during those precious moments turned out beautifully. We couldn’t have asked for better lighting, or better models, for this experience; the warm smiles and atmosphere were breathtaking. These instances where the bride and groom first came together on their special day will forever be frozen in time for the two to enjoy always.
When it came to choosing a vendor for Shivani and Sagar’s wedding day, they couldn’t possibly have chosen a more perfect location. The Gainey Ranch Scottsdale matched the theme of the wedding flawlessly and added a special touch of magic to the event. Thanks to the palm trees, quaint balconies, and natural foliage that decorated the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa (where most of the festivities took place) so much extra personality to the already wonderful set up. As the wedding excitement began, family and friends celebrated the couple with music, laughter, and of course, dancing; which the large courtyard outside the resort and spa offered the perfect amount of space for.
The ceremony took place outdoors under the sun, with rows and rows of crisp white chairs inviting the guests to take their seats and await the big moment. A long white runner marked the path for the bride and groom to the altar, and their mandap was picture perfect; complete with soft cream draping and pink flowers. We could have taken pictures of all the gorgeous details for days, and we are so honored to have been a part of Shivani and Sagar’s special day. From the beginning to the end, this Indian Phoenix wedding was an experience full of love, light, and happiness; which we wish for this beautiful couple for the rest of their days!
