Vasu & Vivek turned up the heat on a cool February/March weekend for their amazingly fun Indian Wedding at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary, NC just outside of Raleigh, NC. I spent 3 days with them, their friends and their family, coming in from all over the world (literally, coming in from as far as India and Singapore).
Day one was an intimate Haldi and Mehndi ceremony with close family and friends. Day two was a beautiful ceremony and dinner at the Prestonwood. There was a pre-reception after party on the rooftop lounge at Solas in downtown Raleigh. DJ Rang came in to spin the tunes, and went late into the night. Day 3 was prep for the reception back at Prestonwood. An extended cocktail hour led to a first dance, some great speeches, including heartfelt ones from Vasu’s brother and sister Ashu and Manu, and great comedy from Vivek’s brother’s Vijay and the “Bigger Sankaran”.
DJ Rang didn’t need to wait for dinner to even start before turning up the music and turning Prestonwood into the hottest club in NC that Saturday night. The dance floor was packed, music loud, and the cryo guns cooled people off with awesomely huge blasts of compressed air. If that wasn’t enough, the massive confetti cannons showered the dance floor with confetti multiple times throughout the night. As always DJ Rang did a bang up job, not only with the music, but also with amazing lighting.
A special NC welcome also goes out to the amazing video team of Jen & Frank from Van Weddings. They came in from Vancouver Canada to work their cinematic magic over the course of the 3 days. A very cool and laid back couple which were so easy to work with and made an amazing video you have to check out.
Of course Manju Nigam did a fantastic job planning and setting everything up. It really was beautiful. And Sondra Johnstone at Prestonwood ran the entire event as smooth as always.
Cheers to Vasu & Vivek! Let’s check out some photos
