Stylish Events has outdone even the most glamorous ceremony scenes with this gorgeous gold and ravishing ruby floral and decor dotted with white accents. I am a total fan of brides opting for a traditional color palette and then adding some unique, lavish touches such as the mix of candles and vases lining the aisle. As she makes her way to the sparkling mandap, Maharani Tina is a complete sensation in an intricate cherry-red lengha with wrists of glittering bangles. Jashim Jalal Studios follows her every step and then catches super sweet pics of the newlyweds as they cozy up in their horse-drawn carriage for a special send-off. While our lovebirds giddy-up to the reception venue, I'll be revisiting all the glitz in the gallery!
From the bride: "I obviously have been obsessed with Maharani weddings for years so it definitely played a large role in my ideas for planning. Other sites I frequented included 'Exclusively In,' 'The Knot,' and 'Pinterest.' I was also a religious watcher of shows such as 'David Tutera – My Fair Wedding,' 'Four Weddings,' 'Say Yes to the Dress,'” and 'Platinum Weddings.' I always wanted my wedding to be an array of purples, pinks, and blues. However, the more I started looking, I got distracted and thought that I may do an array of Fall colors? However, the more I got involved in the planning, and the more designs that I saw and vetoed, there was no way that I could stay away from my favorite hues of Royal Purple, Indigo, Blue, Gold, and Fuschia. I'm so glad I chose them and I should have followed my heart all along!
We took part in a traditional Hindu/Punjabi wedding ceremony which began with a Baraat (a processional where my groom arrived on a horse), Milni (greeting of families), Jai Mala (exchanging of garlands), Kanyadan (giving the bride away), various pujas, circling the sacred fire and exchanging of the seven vows, placement of the Mangal Sutra (black beaded necklace), Sindoor, and exchanging of rings indicating that I was now a married woman. This was followed by a Shiksha or poetic blessing given my grandfather, which brought the entire room to tears. After receiving blessings, we played the 'Joote Le Lo, Paise Dey Do' game in which of course my bridesmaids received beautiful 'Kaleecheri' rings from my mother-in-law, and the rest of the girls received money from my husband (yes, husband!) for giving back his stolen shoes. The bouquet was then thrown and caught by a bridesmaid, and then I bade farewell by throwing puffed rice over my head to symbolize that I wished my parents a life of abundance after my departure. I then mounted a Doli and was carried away by my brothers (new and old), with my new hubby at my side, to the horse and carriage that was waiting to whisk us away!"
