Today’s wedding feature is one that we cannot wait to share with you. Encompassing elements of Hollywood glam, fashion flair and luxurious venues - you won’t want to miss a single minute of Maharani Sumona’s grand wedding celebration. The big question was popped, champagne was poured and now it was the time to start Operation Bride. Premier event designer Electric Karma was brought on to spearhead the important task of ensuring that the ultimate dream team was formed. And, indeed they prevailed. Sumona’s celebrations kicked off with a haldi ceremony at the Joya Hall. The event was a cornucopia of Indian traditions intermixed with modern day entertainment by Glitz & Glamour Events. As Binny had a Panjabi bringing, the couple also celebrate a Moroccan theme sangeet night at Akbar Restaurant. The night was complete with hookah, colorful lighting and amazing floral and decor by House of Dipali. This celebration rivaled many receptions we have seen here at Maharani Weddings and we were completely blown away by the extensive attention to detail. I am absolutely green with envy with the gorgeous lengha that Sumona wore for her sangeet night. Pops of gold this designer piece truly one of a kind. The bride brought on Doodle Studio after watching their amazing work on YouTube and instantly fell in love with their work. The team flew in all the way from Malaysia to capture Maharani Sumona’s big day and hasn’t looked back since. We have a special surprise and have the video right on our site to enjoy!

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

I met my soulmate at a bar on St. Patrick's day. I was out with my friends and he was out with his cousins and some common friends. My friend introduced us and at the time I was working on a film so she told him I was an actress. He was pretty intrigued by that and he kept on asking me about my "stardom life." I told him it was nothing of that sort and I was a mere struggling actress. However, his questions continued the entire time and I finally managed to blow him off and leave with my friends to another bar. He kept his name in my life by getting my friends to talk about him and a few of them told me he's a great guy and that I should at least go on a date with him. So one day I opened up FB, found his profile and messaged him saying "heard you were looking for me." He quickly responded. On our first date, we both clicked immediately and I knew he was the one for me. He was everything I never imagined in a guy and somehow he was perfect for me! I knew my life would drastically change in a great way and I would live an adventurous life completely out of my comfort little shell. And I was soooo right!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Binny made a short film about our love story using parts of the movie I did. He rented a movie theater in Williamsburg and got our family and friends to come to watch it. After that he proposed in front of that. This was all a surprise for me. It was our 3 year anniversary and Binny is king of surprises so he told me we were going to celebrate the whole weekend and had lots of things lined up for us. He wouldn't tell me what they were. We checked into the Wythe hotel in Williamsburg, where he had the theater rented in the basement. He told me that we were going out and that I had to be ready by a certain time. We had drinks at the rooftop of the hotel and I got ready for the night. We walked out of the hotel and went downstairs where he told me we would watch a movie. On the marquee it read “Tonight’s premiere: Unending Love” We were seated in the back of the theater because we were “late” and all seats were taken. Suddenly the movie started playing and I soon realized something crazy was going to happen. Once the movie ended, he took me to the front and when the lights went on in the theater, I looked around and saw that the audience was everyone I knew. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. BEST DAY!! Links will be sent of the proposal movie he made plus another link of the combined movie and of the night. He had set up hidden cameras to capture it all.

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.

I did everything together, all at once and in no order. But it all came together in an orderly fashion.

We went from having a wedding to plan in 9 months to planning for one in 5 months. Our brother's both were expecting a baby so we either had to hold off on the wedding or plan is much earlier. I decided to go to India once with my mother and once with his. We did all the shopping for everything from there. We did our fair share of pinterest boards, google search and of course inspiration from all Maharani bride features. However, most of was also from years of planning what my dream wedding would be like. Lastly our wedding planner-Urvashi Mishra. I would tell her my vision and she would know every resource and vendor who could make that vision become reality.

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

I always knew I wanted a Bengali traditional look for my wedding ceremony. The shade of red was my main concern. There are many shades of red, so choosing one that would suit me was the challenge. I went with my mother to Kolkata- the central hub of all Bengali wedding saris. I bought it from a store that's been around for many many years. They specialize in Indian silk, benarasi in particular. I tried many different shades of red and finally found one that was bright enough yet "sober" as they all called it in the store.

Fine Indian cuisine from Moghul Caterers was dished at an unbelieve wedding celebration and 321 Chillz served up chilled cocktail at the reception. Head on back for details of both events that you won’t want to miss.

Seattle, WA Fusion Indian Wedding by Alante Photography

We love a great Indian party! Especially one that involves amazing light up, drapery, good old fashion fund and fine cuisine. We end Maharani Sonia and Kiran’s love story with a reception party at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle. The morning of the event consisted of a serious glam session with Salon Maison. Sonia opted for a pink and gold lengha with the perfect selection of jewelry. The venue was outfitted with specialized lighting from Crimson Haze who used state of the art wireless technology throughout the ballroom. The illumination also included lighting up the floral backdrop designed by Rented Elegance & Design and bathing the room in a romantic and sultry glow. The wedding cake was based in house by the pastry chefs and was a concoction delight with shades of red pink and dusts of midas gold. My personal favorite? The personalized cake topper cutout that included their delightful pup! The couple opted out of favors and donated to the Seattle Humane Society be still my heart. Bogle Productions captured all the live action, which we hope to view soon! This couple is truly beautiful inside and out and their evergreen memories have been cherished forever in the gallery captured by Alante Photography.

We hope you enjoyed this amazing trifecta celebration and we have lots in store for you lovebirds tomorrow!

Seattle, WA Fusion Indian Wedding by Alante Photography

The Indian culture is steeped with culture and traditions and it is no surprise that when you hail from two different Indian backgrounds, celebrating both is a must. After all, what bride wouldn’t want two gorgeous weddings? For their Sikh wedding, it was only natural that Kiran bring his bustling baraat complete with a horse from Country Wagon Carriages to the Vedic Cultural Center. One of my favorite captures from Alante Photography is the bride actually getting to witness her new beau’s entrance. Sikh Priest Dr. Freedom Singh and Leela performed the auspicious ceremony. The bride was a natural stunner and changed outfits for her second ceremony. The second reveal was a more elaborate bridal lengha outfitted with heavy embroidery stone work and zardosi stones. I am sucker for a navy blue lengha and this bride executed the look flawlessly. The ceremony was performed under a romantic flower laden mandap designed by Rented Elegance & Design.

Seattle, WA Fusion Indian Wedding by Alante Photography

Here at Maharani Weddings we absolutely love it when we see two different worlds collide! Today we celebrate the joyous union of Maharani Sonia and her beau Kiran for a multi fusion wedding celebrating two different cultures. Kiran hails from a Southern Indian upbringing intermixed with some British charm and Sonia’s family hails from a Northern Indian background. For their special day, the couple knew that their celebration should consist of two different ceremonies honoring both families. On the morning of her South Asian affair, Sonia got dolled up by Salon Maison. The bride opted for the complete South Asian bride package that included a large headpiece, flower braid and a silk gold and white sari. The bride and groom held an intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends. You might have noticed that Kiran had a perfectly tied turban and that is because My Turban Swag came to the rescue to make sure that this groom was hooked up. This fusion wedding was planned by Weddings with Wendy who ensured that all the different events flowed together seamlessly. Head into the gallery for a curated set of pics hand-picked by the team at Maharani Weddings for your pleasure perusal captured by Alante Photography.
