Phoenix, AZ Indian Wedding by Birdsong Wedding Photography

Welcome to the magical land of crystal enchantments aka the reception of Aarti and Kritesh! This opulent reception had us swooning, and Us to U Rentals embellished the ballroom at Chateau Luxe with a plethora of crystals through beaded chandeliers, candles, and crystal garlands. Right above the couple’s seating and dance floor, the ceiling decor comprised of beautiful crystals that rendered a halo effect in combination with the lavender lighting. The lighting by Karma Event Lighting was really the showstopper, because it enhanced the glint in the entire ballroom. The two long crisscross tables which we assumed seated the couple’s families added another dimension to the setup, and looked spectacular. There were a ton of unique elements at this soiree, and one that comes to mind is the centerpiece: a trio of martini glasses in varying sizes, with a floating candle placed inside. This is a simple yet stunning tablescape idea! Another standout aspect was the darling white and gold cake, designed by the multi talented Mehndi artist, Henna by Purvi. It featured motifs of classic Mehndi designs on each tier, topped off with matching pink flowers. One can never go wrong with pretty pearls and Aarti proved exactly that with her statement pearl arm cuff and a matching jewelry set. Makiaj added a pop of color to Aarti’s monochromatic look through a taffy pink lip, and kept the rest of her look chic and subdued through soft beach waves. Aarti and Kritesh coordinated so very elegantly, with Aarti in a stone-embroidered beige lehenga and a pink dupatta; Kritesh paired his black tuxedo with a satin pink bow tie. His shiny black shoes deserve a shout out! While NEON entertained the guests during cocktail hour, DJ Adhi from In The Mix Entertainment took over and turned things up a notch with the best of the latest, energetic beats. Take a look at this crystal extravaganza by heading straight to the gallery featuring photos by Birdsong Wedding Photography!

Phoenix, AZ Indian Wedding by Birdsong Wedding Photography

There are so many incredible ways to add splashes of color to an Indian wedding, and we were thrilled to see that a white and gold canvas was the starting point for the master planner Sejal Bhakta of The One Event. Aarti and Kritesh opted for ensembles in cream, red, and mint, so they popped (and how!) against the emblazoned indoors of Chateau Luxe. Together, Us to U Rentals and Wendell Florist did a stunning job on the mandap and aisle decor, theming the decor elements around circles. The monochromatic gold wood-carved mandap added an Edwardian touch, and the laser-cut gold columns that adorned the aisles were topped off with elegant pastel blooms. We’ve said this once and we’ll say it again - the right lighting can enrich decor like no other, and Karma Event Lighting did not disappoint! Escape Studios captured the cinematic journey to supplement the gallery, and we can’t wait to see what that looks like!

Phoenix, AZ Indian Wedding by Birdsong Wedding Photography

Seeing just how much we obsess over weddings on a daily basis, you might think we have seen everything there is to see. But you’d be surprised to know that that’s not the case, and that’s where the fun lies! Sejal Bhakta from The One Event was all about planning a chic and distinctive wedding for Aarti and Kritesh, and it was a smashing success. The way Birdsong Wedding Photography went over every detail while the bride was getting gussied up was like a fairytale in itself. Aarti paired a dreamy au courant mint lehenga that was doused in beige thread and sequin floral work, with an ornate red blouse. This eclectic color pairing was like a breath of fresh fashion air, and we found it delightful the way traditional red made it into the mix. Just about everything in Aarti’s bridal look screamed perfection - Makiaj used blush tones, gold undertones, and a deep mauve lip to perfect her makeup, and the sleek bun was the perfect canvas for her Kundan matha patti. Aarti’s slender mendhi-adorned hands, courtesy of Henna by Purvi, were accentuated with lovely haathphools and bangles. In his turn, Kritesh looked swell in a white Sherwani with silver detailing, paired with a bright red Banarasi silk dupatta that matched his ladylove. The couple didn’t have the classic First Look photos, and instead, Birdsong Wedding Photography utilized the palatial indoors of Chateau Luxe resulting in remarkable portraits of the two! Before we dive into the tres chic ceremony, soak in all the goodness by visiting the gallery

Long Beach, CA, Indian Wedding by White Rose Production

In our Maharani Sessie's words, she felt like she stepped out of a storybook Bollywood wedding after her ceremony. We, on the other hand, felt like we stepped into a storybook royal reception when we saw the gallery! Just about everything was planned to perfection by Bridal and Event Lounge, and the guests were raving about the personalized bride and groom signature cocktails. The Regency Ballroom at Hyatt Regency Long Beach was bedecked in hues of lavender, with standout elements like the backdrop and drapes carried over from the ceremony decor. Flower Diva added lovely blooms in shades of pink, lavender, and white on the stage, in addition to scattered petals. This multifaceted Maharani quickly changed into a kurta and patiala set to join her former dance crew, Bhangra Regiment, and put up a stunt-ridden bit. Thanks to Beauty By Linda Chiriac and Beautified By Daisy, Sessie didn’t have to worry about her hair and makeup amidst all the dancing. Girish opted for a classic black tuxedo from Menguin and black bow tie look, gorgeously contrasting Sessie’s all gold embroidered cocktail gown. In addition to a customized menu, Rasraj set up a scrumptious looking dessert table. “Thanks to Rasraj for catering to our unique taste in food,” added Sessie. Orange County Chocolate Fountains set up a chocolate fountain next to the stunning cake, and post the indulging, DJs from Special Occasions LA took over. “The rest of the evening was, to use the technical term, “turnt””, added the bride jovially! Peruse through the gallery for all the stunning visuals from this blockbuster wedding!

We have some amazing weddings coming up that we know you'd love to partake in! Join us right here on the blog same time tomorrow and until then, enjoy this lively conversation that we had with Sessie:

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
"Meant to be"- this is often something many of us hear but think of as a cliche. Like many people, I thought all of that talk was silly until I met Girish. My father became ill in February 2014 and he knew he did not have a lot of time left. He knew he wanted to see my wedding and, at the least, make sure I was with the right person before he passed. My dad introduced to me to his childhood friend's son with hopes that we would hit it off. We talked for a few months but being on opposite coasts did not make this realistic. Out of the blue, Girish was offered a job on the west coast and, on a whim, took it. After a few months on the job, he finally decided to come down to meet me in L.A. After one weekend, we just knew we were meant to be (we even were wearing matching gold rings with emerald stones - complete coincidence!). We vibed like we've known each other for years. The rest, is history!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was visiting Girish in Seattle July 4th weekend. He had convinced me that we were going to his boss' house for dinner on July 3rd and would meet some of his friends for drinks prior to heading out. We finally left his place and headed into downtown. to meet his friends. We headed to the Four Seasons Hotel roof top and sat down at the glass balcony. We sat for a few seconds facing the shimmering Puget Sound and endless blue skies. Girish told me how special I was to him and, before I could even process what was happening, he got on one knee and asked me to marry him! We continued our special day with an Engagement Shoot followed by dinner at Palisades Restaurant with a waterfront view of Elliott Bay and the Seattle skyline. We ended our night at the Four Seasons Spa. It was truly head-to-toe bliss!

What did your guest particularly love about your Wedding?
We received rave reviews about our wedding. It was a blend of a western ceremony, with the bridal party, bride, and groom walking down the aisle, and a traditional Hindu ceremony. Our priest was engaging and kept the crowd involved; the ceremony flew by. The mood changed quickly for the reception, where everyone was ready to party! Our guests raved about the details -- personalized napkins ("Drunk in Love") to airplane-shaped placecards to capture our long-distance, on-the-go relationship to our unique take on Indian food (thanks Rasraj!) to, of course, the specialized bride and groom signature cocktails!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Your wedding day is going to be a hectic day-- there is no avoiding that. There is going to be a lot going on around you and plenty of people giving you last minute suggestions. Through all the madness, remember to take a step back and take in why the day is truly special: you're marrying your best friend and beginning a new life together. Don't forget to take that in!

Long Beach, CA, Indian Wedding by White Rose Production

There is nothing more we love than First Look captures that look like they were shot with a surprise camera! At least that’s how it looked because White Rose Production did not disappoint! Sessie and Girish hit us right in the feels with the sheer amount of joy they had on their faces on seeing each other for the first time. It was as if they didn’t even know that they were on camera! The wedding day started off with a good luck sprinkle followed by the perfect California sunshine. Hyatt Regency Long Beach made for a dreamy welcome for the wedding party, given its fully lit and luminous ceiling. Flower Diva beautified the ballroom even further with grand gold vases and bouquets adorning the aisle way, leading to a purple and white mandap that was a sheer drapery masterpiece by Bridal and Event Lounge. In the words of Sessie, the priest was engaging and kept the crowd involved, which made the ceremony fly by. Despite all these larger-than-life elements anywhere you looked, the small details turned up the event by a notch. Personalized napkins, airplane-shaped table cards to signify the long-distance relationship by Shubhankar Wedding Invitations, and an aesthetic touch on just about everything really stole the show. Words can't fully capture the essence of this wedding that was enveloped in glitz and gorgeousness. You have to see it to believe it, so head to the gallery brimming with extraordinary clicks!
