Oak Brook, IL Indian Wedding by Rebecca Marie Photography

We’ve finally reached the grand finale reception event celebrating the union of Jessica and Viral. Jessica was a dewy goddess in loose waves and rosy cheeks thanks to the artistry of Patty McGuire. She chose an elegant white lehenga to celebrate her final wedding event, and she truly resembled an angel. Jessica and Viral took a few intimate moments to themselves as frolicked on the gorgeous grounds of the Oak Brook Hills Hilton Resort. The couple enlisted Shaadi Creations to spearhead decor of the reception, and the talented team brought the outdoors inside with a foliage inspired wreath acting as the centerpiece to this lovely affair. The couple kept the chic vibe going with mesmerizing uplighting and a five tiered cake adorned with golden mehndi designs. Okeyne Media Lab swarmed the space with euphoric beats as guests dined on fine Indian cuisine from India House and Naansense. What a once in a lifetime celebration! To see the complete set of photos from this stellar soiree, step into the full gallery by Rebecca Marie Photography and get lost in all the charm.

Oak Brook, IL Indian Wedding by Rebecca Marie Photography

Jessica and Viral were married in a pristine Indian ceremony on a radiant summer day in Illinois. The morning of the wedding started off with a sensational glam session. Patty McGuire was in charge of ensuring this lovely Maharani’s locks were perfectly in place and eyes were dazzled with kajal and sparkle. We are sure that when Viral laid his eyes on his bride during the first look, his heart fluttered with delight. The duo’s first look photos were positively charming, and their love simply bursts from the screen. And we’re obsessing over the natural yet high octane decor that Shaadi Creations created for the ceremony at the Oak Brook Hills Hilton Resort. A cream and tan mandap festooned with a red Ganesha installation was the ultimate in chic luxury. As Jessica walked gracefully down the aisle in an embroidered red lehenga with a soft and flowing white dupatta, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. What a beauty! As they took their sacred vows, guests cheered with delight, and the couple bounded from the stage in a shower of fragrant rose petals. Rebecca Marie Photography captured all the pretty moments that you can find in the full gallery. Hurry back for all the reception deets, featuring music by DJ Alladin and Okeyne Medialab and a food cart from Naansense!

New Orleans, LA Indian Wedding by Amanda Weir Photography

Happy Wednesday Maharanis! We’re going to make you go gaga with Mahitha and Pavan’s sensational reception shindig at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. The gorgeous bride told us, Pavan and I met in the Caribbean while we went to med school in Dominica, and then he proposed to me on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Because of that, it was my dream to have a destination wedding on an island. However, our families really wanted to have a domestic wedding so it would be easier for our guests. So instead, I decided to make the theme of wedding tropical. I knew I wanted palm leaves and pineapples to be part of the decor!” They assembled the perfect team to pull off their vision. The Storybook Event orchestrated this splendid event in collaboration with the floral and decor team from Rao Factor. Together they showed us that tropical blooms, twinkling fairy lights, and soft uplighting creates the most mesmerizing ambiance ever. The tablescapes featured magnificent candelabras, floating candles, and blooms, and together with the multicolored luminescence, it was sheer decadence. DJ Desi Junction ensured a packed dance floor with the DJ doing what he does best. From the pictures of the dance floor, it seems like the crowd went delirious and we cannot wait to catch the live action film by Dyle Films. This soiree was photographed by Amanda Hodges Weir Photography, and you can enjoy all the pics in our full gallery! And make sure to scroll below and read our exclusive interview with Maharani Mahitha.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

This was written from the perspective of my husband: “Our story began on the tiny majestic island of Dominica. As eager medical students, we were both new to the island and ready to drown in our textbooks. We were both in line in a coffee shop on a hot sunny day. Mahitha, being practical, ordered an iced praline coffee. I, on the other hand, ordered a scalding hot double espresso for the infernal temperatures outside. She immediately questioned my choice of beverage. Lucky she did, because we started talking from there. I learned that she was homesick and missing her best friends and family. She learned that I was constantly hungry and always looking for food. After talking for a few weeks, I finally mustered the courage to ask her out on a date. We went to a seafood dinner on the beach to watch the beautiful sunset. At that moment, I knew there was something special between us.”

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

Over Facetime! Being in my first year of residency, it was really hard to find time to go to India to go shopping for my wedding clothes. So my parents went to India instead of me. My mom went to numerous stores in Hyderabad, India; however, no-one would let her take pictures. So I would wake up at 5 AM to my mom Facetiming me from stores. The quality of our Facetime was so awful so in the end I picked my outfits via blurry images of on Facetime and with the help of my mom and grandma's good taste. It worked out really well. I loved all my outfits!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

The non-stop dancing! DJ Chani was an excellent DJ and dhol player. He kept the tempo for all of the events. We danced late into the night both Friday and Saturday night. Not only that, we had very energetic friends and family so the whole weekend just felt like one big dance party. Although, I didn't get to see it live, I know Pavan's favorite part about the weekend was the Baraat. He danced his way into the ceremony Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

At the end of the Reception around 1 AM, our closest friends were still dancing the night away. When the last song played, all of our friends gathered around Pavan and me, and joined in a massive group hug encircling us. The love we felt in that moment was truly amazing.

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.

Pavan and I met in the Caribbean while we went to med school in Dominica, and then he proposed to me on the island of Maui in Hawaii. Because of that, it was my dream to have a destination wedding on an island. However, our families really wanted to have a domestic wedding so it would be easier for our guests. So instead, I decided to make the theme of wedding tropical. I knew I wanted palm leaves and pineapples to be part of the decor!

So sweet! Have a wonderful day lovelies!

New Orleans, LA Indian Wedding by Amanda Weir Photography

We’re head over heels for Mahitha and Pavan’s ceremony at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. Each capture by Amanda Weir Photography was bursting with vibrancy and romance. This wedding featured one of our very favorite mandaps to date, a domed, gazebo esque creation festooned with tropical blooms and fairy lights. We’re swooning! Kudos to the floral and decor aficionados from Rao Factor and planning mavens from The Storybook Event for whipping up such marvelous ambiance. The rest of the spacious quarters were doused in rose petals, tantalizing floral arrangements, and dreamy uplighting. Pavan kicked off his crazy baraat that was definitely a highlight of the weekend. The most fabulous moment had to be when Mahitha made her graceful entrance to the ceremony space in a beige, fuchsia, and orange sari (accessorized with a fab golden belt!), with dreamy hair and makeup styling by Flawless Bride. To say that we are obsessing over the details of this ceremony would be an understatement. We simply can’t wait to watch all the live footage lovingly captured by Dyle Films. In the meantime, we’ve created a gallery of snaps by Amanda Hodges Weir Photography for your perusal pleasure!
