The couple hosted a Welcome Dinner for their guests at the Hyatt the evening before the wedding. For their daytime wedding ceremony, Meera and Mickey chose a very soothing color theme, with soft pink, ivory, and gold fabrics. Ivory elephant statues welcomed guests to the rooftop venue. As it was an outdoor, daytime wedding, guests were provided with sunglasses and Japanese hand-held fans monogrammed with the couple’s hashtag – #MGsquared. After the wedding, Meera and Mickey were whisked away in a Cinderella carriage that added a perfect moment to their fairytale wedding.
During cocktail hour, a classical violinist provided soothing background music. A navy blue and ivory color theme, with hints of gold provided the ambiance for the reception. Centerpieces were candelabras and tall floral pieces.
The couple’s first dance was to “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. Their DJ used amazing lighting and a fog machine to make their first dance seem like a magical fairytale moment. Meera and Mickey looked as if they were dancing on clouds, which left their guests amazed. Their DJ played a mix of Bollywood, Punjabi and Hip-Hop to entertain their guests. Their Dholi Jupji also entertained with his LED dhol and phenomenal skills.
