Disney needs a new princess and we think we’ve found the perfect inspiration in Akta. She and her fiancé, Ankur, threw an engagement party at the Brookfield Zoo for 250 of their closest family and friends, and it was every photographer’s dream – filled with color, enchantment, ceremony, and even live animals!
The Ganesh Puja and Engagement Vidhi took place in the Swan Pavilion, where guests surrounded Akta and Ankur and gave their blessings for a happy and prosperous marriage.
Guests were then treated to a private tour of the zoo on the way to the cocktail hour in the Gorilla House.
The dinner reception was held in a transformed Swan Pavilion – it was filled with lush lilies in animal-inspired centerpieces and softly lit with candlelight. Ankur welcomed and thanked their guests, then invited everyone to enjoy the delicious Indian buffet.
Following dinner, Ankur’s 3 sisters performed a beautiful dance for the couple, then invited all of the guests to join in the dancing.
Akta and Ankur, thank you so much for letting us be a part of the beginning of your life together – we are newly inspired by the beauty of your party and your commitment to each other!
