Pooja and Josh picked a bright, sunny day in June to get married. Surrounded by family and friends who traveled from all over, they exchanged vows at St Clement’s church in Medford, MA. The bride’s hair and makeup were gorgeously styled by Heather Cohen of I Do Wedding Hair New England. Pooja walked down the aisle in a bejeweled, full skirted dress while her bridesmaids wore deep red dresses with gold jewelry – a color combination inspired by Pooja’s heritage and seen in touches throughout the day.
Following the ceremony, Pooja, Josh and their bridal party boarded a trolley provided by The Original Party Trolley to head to several iconic Boston sites that held meaning to the couple. The amazing MKD Photography captured these moments as well as ceremony and reception.
Once the photos were taken, it was time to party! The guests headed to Morss Hall at MIT – a venue close to Pooja’s and Josh’s hearts as MIT is where they first met. Violinist Karen Burciaga played in the background of the cocktail hour as guests enjoyed the picturesque views of the Boston skyline. Masala Art, known for their modern Indian cuisine, provided appetizers such as bhel poori and chili paneer.
Yogesh Rana from Boston Light and Sound welcomed everyone into the historic hall for dinner during which the bride’s parents offered a traditional blessing to the couple and three of Josh’s siblings gave speeches that brought tears and laughter to everyone. Following toasts, the DJ kicked up the music and it was time to dance. Everyone joined in for the dandiya, a traditional folk dance that incorporates decorated sticks and lively dancing.
From the tea inspired place cards to the decorated dandiya sticks to their own personalized copies of Coffee News, so many personal touches came together to make the day. Without A Hitch is so honored to be a part of Pooja and Josh’s wedding and wish them many years of happiness together. Congratulations to Pooja and Josh!
