Leslie and Raj were married at the Manhattan Penthouse on a lovely summer day. Preparations began at the W Hotel in Union Square.
Raj waited anxious and excited to see Leslie for their first look.
We made our way to Gramercy Park for some portraits.
The ceremony took place at the Manhattan Penthouse with beautiful panoramic views of the city. Leslie shares, “Our vision for the look of our wedding was colorful flowers paired with black, gray, and gold for everything else. We wanted it to feel festive, yet sophisticated.”
Gorgeous rose garlands were exchanged during the wedding ceremony as a reference to Hindu wedding traditions.
Walking down the aisle and dancing the night away were some favorite moments from the day.
Leslie shares, “My favorite moment was when Raj walked down the aisle to enter our ceremony. The crowd cheered and applauded like he was a rock star! I was around the corner waiting for my turn to enter so I couldn’t see any of this, but I could feel the love and enthusiasm in the room. I think that is the moment that we both let go of any nerves and got really excited for the rest of the evening.”
Raj shares, “My favorite memories of the night are the moments I took to look around and enjoy being on the dance floor with my wife, surrounded by everyone we love.”
This dulce de leche Momofuku Milkbar cake was incredible! It look stunning sitting in front of the backdrop of the city as the lights of the Freedom Tower and lower manhattan began to turn on.
Congratulations Leslie and Raj!
