Huntington, New York Indian Wedding by STAK Studios

Now that Mili and Prakhar have made it official, it's time to celebrate their unforgettable Indian wedding with a reception to remember, and their DJ from Dhoom Events is on site at the Oheka Castle to make sure they do it in style! The newlyweds called on the chef de cuisine from Moghul Caterers to create a mouthwatering menu of catered fare for their lucky guests, and Elegant Affairs dressed the party space from top to bottom in the most exquisite floral and decor work. Maharani Mili has switched gears and swapped her stunning bridal lengha for an equally incredible white and gold post-ceremony ensemble that had her looking like a million bucks, especially after her hair and makeup were expertly styled by Dharma Karma! The talented photographers from STAK Studios managed to snap up all of these divine details, plus many more, and you can see them all in the complete gallery!

Maharani Mili, on the role family and friends played:

"Since we were both busy with school and residency (plus, I was out of town), our parents really stepped to the plate and did a LOT of work. They missed work to attend vendor meetings, dealt with the headache of scheduling/followup, coordinated all of the catering, etc. Thank god that they were able to take on so much of it. I honestly don't know how Prakhar and I would have done it on our own."

Additional thoughts from the bride:

"A big part of the wedding was that we wanted people to still see us and our personalities under all of the makeup and the clothes and the traditions. We tried to inject fun into every element that we could. Some examples are: we made our own signs with our favorite lyrics as props for the photo booth, my father-daughter dance was a choreographed dance to Party Rock, we made our own reception programs using Photoshop and our wedding website (www.pramili.com), my friends and cousins did a rap for us instead of speeches, we had a slow-motion video booth, and the list goes on. Seeing our personality come through in the wedding made the day even more special for us"

See you tomorrow, my dears!

Maharani Mili, on her wedding style:

"Our wedding style was a little difficult to figure out. Our parents wanted an opulent and lavish Indian wedding, but Prakhar and I wanted something that was more rustic (farm tables, wine barrels, etc.). Oheka served as the perfect venue for us to get the opulence, while still being able to carry through the rustic vibe we wanted. Additionally, we decided to do two looks to make everyone's vision come through. The Sangeet was a more traditional look since we had the Sangeet in a banquet hall at Hilton Long Island, and the wedding day had a rustic flair. I wanted to find a look that complemented Oheka, and Oheka was so beautiful on it's on that we didn't need to go crazy with decor. We decided on a floral mandap rather than fabric to complement the gardens, but I wanted the mandap look to be a little messy. We worked with Elegant Affairs, and each time we went in to see them I would say "let's go a bit messier." I wanted something that looked natural, yet still beautiful. Purple is my favorite color, so we asked them to do purple and white flowers for the mandap and entrance archway, and then for the evening we asked them to mix in other pops of color (greens, hot pink, etc) to carry over the garden theme to the ballroom. One of my favorite design elements was the outdoor cocktail hour area. We brought in farmers tables to set up wine tasting & craft beer tasting stations and then scattered wine barrels around the lawn for people to use as cocktail tables. For seating, Elegant Affairs created these white fabric benches that added a laid back/comfortable, yet sophisticated element to the whole look. I was so worried that it would rain and we would have to scratch this whole idea, but it turned out to be a beautiful area where our guests could enjoy a drink while watching the sunset over the Long Island Sound."

On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:

"I'm not going to lie, wedding planning is exhausting, and planning an Indian wedding with an endless number of events is even more exhausting. I was in Boston for the first year of my MBA program, and my husband was in New York in his first year of residency. The most enjoyable moments of planning the wedding were just being together and working together as a team to make sure our most important wants and needs came through on the wedding day."

On one of her most memorable wedding day moments:

"One moment that I loved was during our vidaai, Prakhar and I got into the car and blasted the radio as we drove away, while I totally rocked out in the passenger seats. The song that was playing was "Bitch Better Have My Money," by Rihanna. Needless to say, the aunties were not enthused, but we had a blast."

Meet me back here for a sensational reception!

Maharani Mili, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Prakhar:

"We met through a mutual friend in Boston. I had just moved for a new job and didn't know anyone in Boston, while Prakhar was there finishing up his last year of medical school. Our mutual friend kept inviting us to the same parties, and eventually Prakhar worked up the nerve to ask me out on a date. For our third date, he invited me to his med school gala. It was a perfect night, and we just totally hit it off.

I knew he was the one when shortly after we started dating I realized I could really by myself around him, and we could both let our weirdness shine. To quote Dr. Suess, "We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.""

On her Raja's romantic proposal:

"We were in Portland, Oregon on vacation, and we were going on a hike along the Columbia River Gorge. There are a series of waterfalls along the gorge, and he planned to propose at the last waterfall (Multnomah Falls). He kept rushing us through the first couple waterfalls, and I kept being like what is the rush. When we got to Multnomah, the photographer that he had hired texted him to stall because there was an Asian tour group at the falls. I was so confused from him rushing us and then stalling, but when he actually got down on one knee in front of the falls everything made sense. It was a beautiful setting and really intimate. We called/texted our close family and friends, but we didn't post an announcement on social media so that we could just concentrate on us. We enjoyed the next few days in Portland basking in our newly-engaged glow."

On creating her dream wedding lengha:

"I almost never buy my own Indian clothes. Usually someone (my mom or aunts) pick out clothes for me from India and I just wear whatever is brought for me, so I didn't even know what styles I did or did not like. I spent four months following Indian designers and boutiques on Instagram, and learning what was out there (I fell in love with Sabyasachi's work, but doesn't everybody?). We went to India and my mom's friend referred us to a custom designer that really understood what I wanted. Instantly, I felt like she knew what was in my head and I could trust her to execute my vision. On the day of the wedding, I was super happy with the end result.

Working with a custom designer is really nice because you don't have to compromise on anything. For example, in my evening gown, I really wanted a keyhole back and couldn't find that anywhere else. Working with the designer, I just had to say what I wanted, and she made it happen."

On her hair and makeup:

"Finding a hair and makeup lady was the hardest part of the wedding, hands down. I went through four trials before I found Saab, and let me tell you, Saab is a GODSEND. It was hard to find someone who didn't make me too white or too dark, someone who was able to cover my acne, someone who didn't make me look like clown, etc. I also feel like I spent more time with the makeup lady than I did with anyone else that day, and I needed to find someone who would be easy to talk to or not talk to (if I didn't feel like talking)."

Make sure to join me later today for some dashing highlights from Raja Prakhar's baraat!
