Today is part three of my blog series on Madina + Omkar’s spectacular Minneapolis Indian wedding photography celebration. Make sure to take a look at the other blogs posts. Part one features their Muslim wedding ceremony. And part two shows their Hindu wedding ceremony.
Saint Paul Hotel Wedding Photography
Madina + Omkar held their Indian wedding reception at the St Paul Hotel. Madina prepped in the L’Etoile Suite and Omkar in another room of the beautiful hotel. Omkar wore a sharp black and white tux, while Madina wore a magnificent custom gown with lace and crystals throughout.
Once the two of them were ready, we took them across the street to Rice Park for their first look and portraits, followed by group photos. Then we were able to head back to the St Paul Hotel for their gorgeous reception. And really, the word “gorgeous” is such an understatement. It was truly a jaw-dropping, opulent event!
Saint Paul Hotel Wedding Reception
Madina + Omkar’s reception was held in the St Paul Hotel ballroom. Walking into the room, I think my eyes popped right out of my head! The center of the room featured their stunning, gold-adorned, six-tiered wedding cake. The tables were set so elegantly with custom menu cards, gold chargers, and floral centerpieces. The lighting featured ornate gobos on the ceiling as well as a custom gobo with their names and monogram. They included six different color changes throughout the evening. And the pinnacle of the room was the custom-built pergola over Madina + Omkar’s sweetheart table. It was draped in gold fabric and topped with live flowers. Inside was a gorgeous crystal chandalier. Simply spectacular!
After dinner, Madina + Omkar received numerous toasts, love and blessings from their guests. The two of them gave thanks for everyones’ support and love through the years. So many tears of joy! The toasts were followed by Madina + Omkar’s first dance, then their parent dances as well as an anniversary dance. Then they were able to dance the night away.
