{Real Wedding} Shilpa and Chirag from Binita Patel Photography

I have to say before we get started that I am absolutely in love with this couple and their obvious love for one another. I am grateful that the fabulously fabulous Binita Patel offered to share this sweet, sincerely moving Real Wedding with us. Shilpa and Chirag look like the kind of couple who are just eternally happy, which in turn makes me happy!

Here is what Binita had to say about the couple along with her images of this gorgeous, traditional and yet modern Indian wedding.

Shilpa and Chirag are one of those really sweet, really authentic couples who just warm your heart.  You can just tell that they really make each other feel comfortable and loved; and being around them just puts you at ease. 

Their wedding day was full of color, love & laughter.  Gorgeous flowers, beautiful materials, filled with tradition and family, and lavish ceremony made it a wedding to be remembered for a long time to come. 

The traditional Hindu ceremony took place at La Renaissance in Connecticut with Mandap King, also of Connecticut, providing the mandap and exquisitely detailed decor. Shilpa was a gorgeous bride; her mehndi done by a local Connecticut artist Shabhana, her dresses direct from India and her hair and make up compliments of Amisha’s Artistry. Like most brides, she seemed to be the somewhat quiet...

However the bride and the rest of the wedding were certainly ready to put their party shoes ON once the reception got started. Seriously, Shilpa has sooo much energy. This bunch really knows how to party!

Starting from the baraat (the traditional procession of the groom from his home to the wedding location), all the way through the reception… the dancing just DID NOT STOP!! Thank you for letting me be a part of the glorious day, this coming together of family and tradition. It was an absolute joy!
