The marriage came at the end of an eight-year-long courtship with Riteish (32) and Genelia (24) taking their vows around a sacred fire at the suburban Grand Hyatt hotel.
The groom, wearing a white sherwani and red 'feta' (turban), entered the hotel riding a white 'ghodi'. Genelia wore a red and gold lehenga designed by Ritu Kumar.
The 'baaraat' started from the grounds near Grand Hyatt. Amidst the singing and dancing, Riteish, with his face covered with a 'sehra' (flower veil), waved excitedly while sitting on the horse.
The actor's Congress minister father Vilasrao Deshmukh was dressed in a brown sherwani.
Sharad Pawar, Praful Patel, Subodh Kant Sahay, Sunil Tatkare and Johny Joseph were among the political figures present at the wedding.
B-town guests present included Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Kajol and Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Sajid Khan, Karan Johar, Shahid Kapoor, Ashutosh Gowariker, Sajid Nadiadwala, Satish Shah, Asin, Jacky Bhagnani, Vashu Bhagnani, Ramesh Taurani, Nishka and Neeta Lulla.
Riteish took to Twitter last night, saying, "Saw the Last sunset as a Bachelor."
And soon after the wedding, the actor took to Twitter to post a photo of him and Genelia, with the caption, "MR & MRS DESHMUKH".
The wedding capped three days of festivities that included sangeet, haldi, mehndi ceremonies and a traditional bachelorette party for Genelia. The reception will take place tomorrow at the same hotel.
Riteish and Genelia have been seeing each other since their Bollywood debut, 'Tujhe Meri Kasam' in 2003 but they chose to be secretive about it. They finally opened up about their relationship last year.
The couple will be seen romancing in their forthcoming film 'Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya' that will hit the theatres on February 24.
The baaraat and arrangements at this big fat Bollywood wedding were nothing less than exquisite. There were dancers, and guests dressed in the 9-yard Maharashtrian saris (navaris) making this wedding a truly traditional one.
Genelia D'Souza made for a pretty bride in red. Well attended by people from the film fraternity and politicos, Riteish ensured to make his fans a part of his big day, and immediately posted a picture of himself and his bride on twitter once the wedding ceremony was over and the handsome couple announced man and wife.
The array of food was exotic - from Indian to world cuisine, the guests had enough and more to choose from.
Though the wedding was by and large a Maharashtrian one, Genelia is known to have conducted a few Catholic rituals. While Riteish had a haldi ceremony at home a day before the wedding, Genelia hosted a roce ceremony at her home and paid a visit to the the church to seek blessings. The couple didn't meet each other after these respective ceremonies. They were made to stay put at home, and saw each other only on the wedding day.
The wedding reception of Genelia and Riteish will be held tomorrow, and is once again expected to be well attended by the who's who of Mumbai! Here's wishing the handsome couple a happy married life.
