Warwick, RI Indian Wedding by Salwa Photography

Good day, ladies! Do I have one amazing wedding for you girls today! Salwa Photography sent over some of the most stunning images from Maharani BIjal's wedding. So many in fact, that I had such a difficult time choosing which ones to use in today's posts. There were just too many amazing ones to select from! Planning and design guru, Sonal J. Shah Event Consultants, definitely played a hand in my dilemma because you can't have amazing images without amazing visuals, and wait until you see the out-of-this world floral designs by Design House Decor at this event. Before we jump into all that fabulousness, check out our bride getting ready for her wedding portraits, and ultimately her ceremony, in these eye-catching photos. What a gorgeous bride, right? Check out some of the pre-wedding partying that went down at our bride's garba in the gallery.

The bride on her groom's romantic proposal:

"The Beginning of our Happily Ever After...On Friday, I came home from work and thought I was going out to dinner in Providence with my parents and my sister, Hinal, at this new restaurant near the water called Jacky's. Hinal tried to get me to “look nice” and put on make-up (haha) so we could take pictures…but I was lazy and didn’t put on make-up. I said “whatever, it’s just dinner – I don’t have to dress up that much for it.” Little did I know…My Dad said he needed to meet us at dinner after because he also had to go to a friend’s birthday dinner at another restaurant in Providence (meanwhile, he was with Amish driving him to Providence, near the restaurant). When we got there, me, my Mom and Hinal started walking to the restaurant, which is right near the water and the bridge in Providence. We had to go down some steps…there was no one there! Then I saw a random man standing behind this pillar looking out onto the water (I only saw his back, couldn’t see his face). I was scared because it was dark outside and it was just us three girls – I thought "this guy looks shady and he might have a knife or a gun." Just as I was about to tell my Mom and Hinal to turn around and that we should walk another way, the man turned around and it was Amish!

I was sooo beyond shocked! Back story – we see each other once a month and I had just seen him two weeks ago, so I wasn’t expecting to see him until April! I walked over and he gave me a hug and we started walking towards the center of the bridge. My Dad, Mom and Hinal went off and disappeared (Hinal took pictures of this from behind a tree or something). I honestly don’t even remember the words we exchanged because I was still in shock mode – I obviously put two and two together and figured out why he was here and surprising me. Though, at some point, in the middle of all that, I did say “What are you doing here?!” And he goes “What do you think I’m doing here?” and laughed. We walked a little bit towards the center of the bridge and that’s where he got down on one knee and popped the question! It was cold outside so I had gloves on and after I said yes, I was like “wait, let me take my gloves off” – and then he put the ring on my finger. I was so excited and happy, I didn’t even look at the ring but just wanted to give him a great big hug! I couldn’t help it but I had tears in my eyes (which I never imagined I would – I knew I would be super excited but didn’t think I would ever cry). Then after, my parents and Hinal came back out and we took some pictures. Then we all went to get a drink at The Water Place restaurant. That’s when I realized I hadn’t even seen the beautiful ring Amish gave to me and saw it for the first time."

I have some spectacular details from the wedding ceremony on the way, so make sure to check back again soon!

The bride on the first dance song:

"Nothing can change this love" by Sam Cooke. It's groovy, romantic and best of all, only 2 minutes long!"

On her florist: 

"Our florist was amazing and created our Mandap/chuppah and all of our beautiful arrangements. I sent her a couple pictures from Pinterest and she far exceeded my expectations"

On what she enjoyed most about planning her wedding:

"Fusing the elements of a Hindu and Jewish wedding. We loved putting personal touches into our wedding ceremony and what we created was unique and perfect for us."

On her most memorable moment:

"Standing in our chuppah/Mandap, looking at each other and reciting our personal vows, knowing all the people we love most were right there with us."

That's all for now, ladies! Hope you enjoyed it! We'll see you tomorrow!

The bride on meeting her groom:

"We met on Halloween in Baltimore when I was doing my residency and hit it off immediately. After a few months of dating, I think we both knew."

On getting engaged:

"We got engaged when I was living in Boston and Rob was in Baltimore. He proposed to me the day after Valentines Day, on a pier overlooking the frozen Charles River. We then spent a fabulous weekend wining and dining in Newport, RI."

See you in a bit, ladies! You won't want to miss out on what's coming up next!

Captiva Island, FL Fusion Wedding by Julie Brewer Photography

Welcome back Maharanis! We're about to get some sun and sand in with our bride and groom as they say their I DOs in this beautiful fusion ceremony. Taking from both their religious traditions, our gorgeous pair partake in a doubly unforgettable exchange of vows. The stunning bride dazzles in her bridal lengha and her groom is equally stylish in his traditional Indian suit. These amazing images by Julie Brewer Photography highlight some of the most eventful moments from the ceremony including the sindoor and the breaking of the glass. I love fusion weddings because they are a lovely reminder about the beauty of tradition and how two distinctive and different cultures can come together to create one unique and marvelous celebration. To see more from this wedding, visit the full gallery.

The bride on her wedding style:

"Our wedding style was upscale beach chic. I grew up in Florida and always wanted to get married near the ocean, and Captiva Island was the perfect choice for us. My color palate was "shades of sunset", hence the dark pink for me and orange and purple for my bridesmaids."

Stick around for an adorable portrait session with our newlyweds coming up next!

Captiva Island, FL Fusion Wedding by Julie Brewer Photography

Good day, Maharanis! Today's stunning beauty of a bride is Parvathy, and she is just darling as can be in these gorgeous shots by Julie Brewer Photography. Her beautiful bridal lengha has the perfect amount of bling and her bridesmaids' complimentary orange and blue outfits are the perfect match. Her remarkable bridal bouquet made up of the sweetest stems of pinks and oranges is just smashingly vibrant and eye-catching. Everything about it is just charming and full of life. It's bold and delicate all at once and I love that. Our bride is ready to hit the altar and meet her groom to exchange their loving I DO's, but before that, head on over to the gallery for more details on this bride's wedding day look.

The bride on her hair and makeup:

"My makeup was done by myself and my sister. I spent a lot of time at MAC and sephora beforehand and a friend who is a make up artist helped me out with some tips and products. For hair, I did an updo with a braid because Rob always says that I look like a princess when I have my hair in braids."

On choosing her lengha:

"I spent some time looking online and decided to go with pink since it was a spring wedding on the beach. We then took a family trip to Kerala, India where my family is from. I went shopping with my mom, future mother in law and a cousin. We found my wedding sari within the first hour of being at our first store. I tried on 3 others before it, but knew it was the one immediately."

I'll be back in just a bit with an unforgettable fusion ceremony so stay tuned!
