A dreamy Indian wedding at the One Atlantic in Atlantic City filled with tradition and splendor.

Bride Dhara sent us a special story of what the Gujarati wedding meant to her. Fair warning, you'll need those tissues!

Months of planning, countless meetings, hours finalizing the smallest details and flood warnings from a torrential downpour only hours before finally gives way to a breezy cool wedding day over the Atlantic Ocean. The bride walks into One Atlantic with her mom in tow both grateful that the rain has stopped. As she enters the venue that never fails to awe her, she takes a glance at the ballroom where her wedding mandap is already set up. Gripping her mom's hand with misty eyes they walk to the bridal room to get dressed.

Before she knows it, she is dressed, morning pictures with her handsome groom have occurred and the baraat has arrived on the One Atlantic floor. She dances out the small jitters in the bridal room to the dhol and DJ as they welcome all the guests.

Her uncles arrive to escort her down the aisle to the mandap. In true style, the uncles, both who tower over 6 feet 5 inches tall, make a square seat by interlocking their arms and carry their niece, all of 5 feet 2 inches, down the aisle.

As she enters the room, she hears a silence and all the emotions of the moment hit her all at once. Her eyes begin to tear and she grips onto her uncles. Placed before the mandap, she climbs the few steps and reaches out her hand to her mom for support and strength.

When the white cloth drops her world is at peace again, before her is her anchor and before her is her soon to be husband.

As the day turns into night, the elegant dreamy wedding turns into a magical night. Above the ocean, One Atlantic is transformed. Deep blues of the night dance with champagne lights from lanterns and candles around the rooms. Tea lights are suspended from the ceiling over the dance floor and a sweetheart table is set up on a small stage with arched branches adorned with blue and champagne toned flowers.

The bride dances into the room with her groom and at once transported into night filled with stars. The twinkling of candle light, the rhythm of music and the excitement of celebration embraces them as they dance the night away.
