From the bride:

"My husband had been planning the proposal for months. We had a long distance relationship, I was visiting him in California when he popped the question. He took me to his hometown temple for a prayer but little did I know he had reserved the whole temple for us. We were performing a prayer with the priest and the priest told me to close my eyes. The priest gave him a plate with rose petals and the ring. When I opened my eyes, my husband was on one knee with the ring in his hand. It was truly the happiest moment of my life. It made it even more special when all of his family and my mom came out. They had been hiding in the temple the entire time. There were a lot of tears of joy. And the surprises didn't end there. We went around Orange County for the private helicopter ride and then on a beautiful gondola ride at Balboa Island. It was amazing. And to top it all, when we came home from a romantic dinner, my mom, dad, and both of my brothers flew in from the east coast to surprise me. My husband had been planning this with my family for months. It was a day full of the sweetest surprises. All of my family flew in that weekend to celebrate our engagement. We had a surprise roka ceremony the following day. It was a magical weekend."

What a dream! See you at the ceremony up next!

Tucson, AZ Indian Wedding by IQvideography

Whenever a submission from IQvideography crosses my desk, I know I am in for a delightfully sweet treat. With family and friends from Arizona and California to witness, this was an Indian wedding to remember. Square Root Designs and Planning Elegance were there to make sure there was not a flower out of place at the reception at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel while the team at Oasis at Wild Horse Ranch made this bride’s dream ceremony come to life. This is one wedding I have simply fallen in love with and this video is just waiting to be swooned over and over again!

In case you missed any of the Maharani magic this week, here are some of my fave moments!

Chicago, IL Indian Engagement by Aria Fine Art Films

At first glance, this engagement is a bundle of bling and happiness that is the perfect combo. But when you start peeling back those gorgeous layers, you will quickly see that this love story captured by Aria Fine Art Films is a slice of Indian wedding heaven. It’s the details I absolutely adorethe bride’s jewelry, her eye makeup, and oh, her groom isn’t so bad either! It’s an engagement dream come alive, so cozy up and enjoy!

From the bride, on meeting her Raja:

"I met him at a job interview for a pharmacy manager position, at his pharmacy in the city. We knew within weeks that we wanted to be with each other. There was a certain unknown chemistry we had. It was destined."

On her engagement:

"January 1st is when we got engaged. We were at his condo, snowing and cold in chicago, but we were infront of a fire and that's how we got engaged. It was a matter of just the ring, we already knew we were going to get married."

On her wedding style:

"I wanted it to be grand, memorable and unique. I like to make a statement and I want things to be different. There was alot of funk but also classy and traditional at times."

On planning her wedding:

"I got to know my husband better."

On choosing her bridal gown:

"I designed all of my outfits...from picking fabric, stones, thread..everything..I also did both parents and all siblings..and bride parties."

On her most special moment from the wedding:

"Everyone had a blast..and that's what we wanted. We would tell our parents were proud, us being the first in the family getting married from both sides. We made them happy and couldn't be thrilled ourselves."

On their first dance:

"Hum ho hi...and happy...we did rumba to the hindi party and other mixed ballroom moves for the faster beat of 'Happy.'"

On her hair and makeup:

"Yes, I researched many hair styles, mixed and matched, and found 5 that worked for me."

On family and friends helping out:

"Yes my parents especially my mom was dedicated to making my dreams come true with the wedding."

On her other wedding details:

"I ordered special mehendi candleshad our names on them. We had an amazing dessert bar. Each event there was party favor given. We had a mandap made and rushed to the USA for us. Jewelry along with many things for the wedding were jodha akbar theme, we wanted the royal, palace feel. And that went down not only to the clothes but also the jewelry. I am still on my honeymoon so if there is anything else you need please let me know I am writing as much as I can with limited internet access. Alsoour engagement trailer is one to see!!"

Pasadena, CA Indian Wedding by Lin and Jirsa Photography

Happy Friday, darlings! I have a super special treat for you today and it comes courtesy of Lin and Jirsa Photography! I was absolutely smitten with this double-ceremony wedding when we featured it as a photography spread and I am totally in love with it as a fabulous film. First of all, Maharani Jessica's colorful lengha is a complete dream in tangerine and teal (my fave combo!) and both the Hindu event and Sikh celebration are as gorgeous as can be. Plus, when you see the amazing reception scene set aglow by Special Occasions DJ & Lighting, you will feel like you're living in the lap of luxury! Langham Huntington is such a spectacular venue and every touch is pure perfection. Hit rewind, my loves, and get ready for a dose of dazzle!

I'm nearly speechless, Maharanis!

Flowers abound and Tim Halberg Photography is on the scene to snap pics of each soft pink centerpiece and sunlit tablescape.

From the bride, on their first dance:

"We've been listening to this English jazz-pop singer Jamie Cullum since when we first started dating 5.5 years ago. We knew right away that we wanted to choose a song of his for our first dance. We chose 'What a Difference a Day Made.' We took dance lessons with Frances Cuevas, from Miss Frances Dances, and she was an incredible teacher. She made us feel very comfortable and confident from day one, and she really picked up on what worked for us. Luckily for us, Jamie Cullum was on tour and we got to see him live at the Fillmore. Was a great way for us to celebrate our one month wedding anniversary!"

On a special moment:

"My most favorite moment was walking onto the dance floor as we entered the reception as husband and wife. After our entrance, we transitioned right into our first dance, and I felt so happy and loved, being surrounded by all of our friends and family, while the sun was shining down on us."

Until tomorrow, Maharanis, sparkle on!
