Montego Bay, Jamaica South Asian Wedding by MnMfoto

To keep you from having a mid-week meltdown, we're bringing you a tropical, South Asian wedding delight! This destination sensation is sure to give you the perfect pick-me-up if you're having trouble getting over the Wednesday hump. Let's start off with some fabulously fun, pre-wedding moments from today's bride and groom's Caribbean wedding event. The bride is all dolled up for her Pithi by the world-class Iberostar Salon at the Iberostar Hotel and Resorts Rose Hall Suites — which is also hosting her multi-day celebration of love. Thanks to MnMfoto, we get a first row seat to the affair of a lifetime, from the comfort of our computer screens! These spectacular snapshots of the night highlight some of the most memorable moments. The bride is party-perfect in her green and gold lengha, and the tabletops and decor are splendidly spot on to her vision, thanks to Tai Flora. This Maharani and her hubby-to-be even had the venue bring in Kaivan, a reggae band, to spread even more of the lively, island vibes and give partygoers the most appropriate music to move to! For more from this fun night, check out the gallery!

The bride on how she met her Raja:

"We have known each other since a young age. My brothers used to always go to his house and our parents were great friends. We always saw each other at the prayer hall and had classes together where we hung out. After we all graduated high school and went to college, we lost touch, but as soon as we came back we all started hanging out again. His joking personality and always making me smile made me love him even more."

On the romantic proposal:

"I have a few great memories from my proposal. We had a romantic dinner, watched a slide show with pictures of us throughout the years and then he proposed in a suite, on the rooftop of the Joule Hotel in Dallas. He also planned an engagement party right after the proposal and got all my friends from Austin and Houston and my brother from New York to come down to surprise me at the restaurant. I was in shock and felt so happy that everyone was there to celebrate the moment with me."

On her pre-wedding style:

"For the Pithi I wore a green and gold lengha and for the décor I chose bright flowers, candles, and lanterns. We wanted to make the Pithi traditional and fun so we had a traditional ceremony, dinner, and a reggae band for entertainment. While the reggae band performed, we had other activities which included a bonfire for s'mores, glow sticks, frisbees, coconuts, couches to relax and of course a dance area to dance the night away! It was great seeing everyone dancing and enjoying all of the activities."

Join me in a little bit as we get an exclusive peek at this bride's gorgeous wedding gown!

Great Neck, NY Pakistani-Muslim Wedding by House of Talent Studio

House of Talent Studio takes us to the royal reception at the Leonard's Palazzo in New York where these Pakistani-Muslim newlyweds can let their hair down and join in on all the party fun. The elegant room is filled with gorgeous golden chairs, romantic rose petals on the tables, and lovely red and white floral centerpieces by Fern 'n' Decor. And, I am in awe of that sweet show-stopper of a four-tier white and gold wedding cake by ArtropolisDJ Gudah brings down the house with dhol players and drummers while guests feast on a magnificent meal—catered by Kabab King. For Maharani Ghazala and her new hubby, Awais, the night was a perfect combination of heartfelt speeches along with lots of laughter, tears and joy. See it all from the beginning in the gallery!

From the bride, on the entertainment:

"Entertainment was very important to us. My groom arranged a band (2 dhol players, a drummer and a saxophone player) that played bhangra music. A saxophone playing bhangra music with confetti and CO2 cannons blasting in the background was a first for our guests, but I think it made the night memorable."

On a special moment:

"While it isn't one particular moment, I would definitely have to say that I can distinctly remember the look on my groom's face all night. I have never seen him look so happy before. When I think back to that smile with our gorgeous decorations as a backdrop, that was my magical moment."

That is awesome! Enjoy the rest of your day, my darlings!

Great Neck, NY Pakistani-Muslim Wedding by House of Talent Studio

After months of planning, the big moment has finally arrived for this twinkling twosome to make their love official in a Pakistani-Muslim ceremony at Leonard's Palazzo in New York, images courtesy of House of Talent Studio. In true Maharani fashion, Ghazala is carried in like royalty to marry the man of her dreams. She is a sparkling vision in her champagne-colored anarkali churidar kameez, standing alongside her Maharaja who looks very handsome in his cream-colored sherwaniFern 'n' Decor designed a lovely ten foot wall panel of fresh off white and red flowers to serve as the visual backdrop for this moment of wedded bliss. Don't you dare move a muscle because we're not done with this dashing duo just yet, but for now, check out the gallery to see more of this magical moment.

From the bride, on the wedding style:

"Originally I chose a color palette and realized it was becoming increasingly hard to plan a wedding around colors. So instead I just picked my dream dress. Once I did that, everything else fell into place to complement my dress."

On planning:

"As nerveracking as it was during the wedding planning process, now that it is over I realize I really did enjoy the countless hours I spent scouring the Internet for wedding ideas and ways to make them become a reality."

On help from family and friends:

"My family and bridesmaids helped out with a lot! One of my favorite moments however, was a poem that my father wrote for me and recited on the wedding day. It was about his daughter being like a little bird flying away from his nest. I think it made all my guests shed some tears."

Portraits of the couple are straight ahead!

From the bride, on how they met:

"Believe it or not, we were high school sweethearts. As cheesy as it sounds, I really can't remember a time before I knew he was "the one."

On hair and makeup:

"Pinterest was my best friend during the entire wedding planning process. I started out by pinning different looks I liked. When I narrowed it down to the general look I wanted, I did a trial with my MUA and tweaked the look as I saw fit."

Ceremony shots are coming up!
