Part 2 of 2. Click here to view a recap of their Sangeet. After their hindu ceremony Shaffali and Alvin started the day at the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel. Pauline was on site and did a phenomenal job with the hair and makeup. We moved on to the Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church for there ceremony. Wedding Design was on site to decorate the church and Addison Park for the reception.
The day was meticulously coordinated by Surbhi and her staff at One Events Management. The dance floor was left jam-packed with Jay Dabhi DJing the night away; And it is always a good time shooting next to my pal Joseph from Joseph Minasi Films. A huge thanks to Ryan Brenizer and Aysha for the immense help through out this day. Scroll down and enjoy!

Part 1 of 2 Introducing Shaffali and Alvin at the Inn in New Hyde Park. From the look of their stage decor, I already knew I was in for a festive party. They had Mehndi artists and a caricature artist on site to aid in the dancing and pre-wedding celebration of their Sangeet night. DJ Shilpa was on the one’s and twos keeping the dance floor packed. Enjoy a few of my favorites from the night. Catch part 2 of their ceremony and reception by clicking here.
After completing their mangal phere (a ritual in where the couple circle the fire 7 times to signify balance and completeness), there’s a race to see who sits down first. Supposedly, whoever sits first will rule the household.
Can you guess who won?
