vinita alok wedding

I first met Vinita and Alok through Therese Cole of Electric Karma. At our initial meeting we talked about the size of their wedding (huge!), the size of Vinita’s family (huge!), and how many guests were expected to attend the wedding (a lot!).

My initial glimpse into the festivities came at their engagement party held at Valone’s 10 months before the wedding. Even though this was my first time meeting both families, their hospitality and generosity was there from day one. I was treated as more of a guest and constantly asked if I was ok, if I was hungry, or if I needed anything.  Much like my Persian family. As the months progressed and the schedule of the wedding became clear I started to realize the level of production for this wedding.

The week started off at Vinita’s parents house with 3 days of events ending on a high note on Thursday with a big gathering and some performances by family members.  Friday began with a big sangeet night with a beautifully designed ballroom. String lights connected the enormous centerpiece over the dance floor to the circular walls and vendors all around the room. The food was amazing, the mood was great, and the dance performances by family and friends were well executed.  The night ended somewhat early due to the wedding being so early the next morning.

Despite lack of sleep and having to be up before dawn, Vinita and Alok both had a smile on their face as we started their wedding day. Vinita wore her mom’s wedding outfit for the ceremony and Alok braved the cold before the baraat for a very intimate first look between the couple. After dancing through the streets of downtown, the ceremony was held on a beautiful custom mandap courtesy of Prashe as a live feed was showing on the four large screens around the room.

After the ceremony and a small break the reception began with drinks, sushi bar, and a 30 foot tall Eiffel tower complete with laser light show and fog in the middle of the dessert tables. After the grand entrance by Vinita and Alok on the stage with their names in marquee lights behind them and their first dance, the crowd was entertained by dance performances by Aatma and contortionist/aerialist Sofie Dossi. The night ended on a high note with a packed dance floor and a small after party which lasted until 3 am the following morning. I was honored to be a part of this amazing wedding and able to witness and capture the events as they unfolded for Vinita, Alok, and their amazing families.
