Arpita and Viral: A New Brunswick Wedding at The Heldrich

Arpita and Viral were married in a traditional Hindu Wedding on April 7, 2012.  The ceremony and reception took place at the Heldrich in New Brunswick which was a natural fit for the couple who met at Rutgers University.  We had so much fun working with them to make sure they were able to sit back and enjoy their day, which stated bright and early with the Barat!  Black lace accents carried throughout the entire day from the D.I.Y invitations to the vellum lace table numbers.  But did we mention Aprita’s love for the color pink?  Well you certainly couldn’t miss it; beautiful pink bridesmaid sari’s, pink roses, pink escort cards and her awesome pink heels!  We had a great time working with the staff of the Heldrich and of course Amie Schroeder Photography.  Enjoy just a few of the images they took which captured the details of the day beautifully.
