Scottsdale, AZ Indian Wedding by Robles Video Productions

Get ready to kick off Filmy Friday with a breathtaking Indian wedding event in Scottsdale, Arizona, planned and designed beyond perfection by South Asian bridal faves, Sonal J. Shah Event Consultants. This beautiful film was shot and edited by Robles Video Productions and showcases some spectacular highlights from an incredible desert event. We can only imagine how stunning the photos captured by Sameer Sorma Studios are after seeing this little cinematic gem of a wedding film. The bride is all aglow, as her personal friend and hair and makeup artist, Pooja Mehta, helps her get ready for the day of her dreams. Her traditional bridal lengha, by Darshi Shah and Bhavin Trivedi of DBST Studio in Vastrapur, is a sensational number which she envisioned and had created beyond her wildest expectations. As she makes her way down the aisle at her romantic ceremony — set in a luscious, green oasis on the grounds of the Wekopa Resort, and featuring a mandap that stands center stage like a sparkling, ivory altar adorned in flowers — she is a no doubt the ultimate vision of a blushing bride to her anticipating groom (who was ushered in by the sounds of Sound Nation during his baraat procession). The floral and decor by Wendell Florist that surrounds their wedding stage adds the perfect color and vibrancy to their vow exchange — which is probably my favorite part of this video.

The bride, on how she met her Raja:

"The two of us met by chance, but with many mutual friends, I know our paths would have crossed sooner or later. I was happy it was sooner…We had a friend in common who had invited me to a housewarming party. I didn’t plan to attend on the day of the party, but finally decided I would stop by this housewarming party, planning to leave after about an hour. That never happened… When I walked into a nearly empty party, the only person I saw in the room was Sudeep sitting at a table looking rather bored. I was going to make the most of this party…I walked right up to him and introduced myself. We hit it off immediately and began chatting the night away. I was so excited to meet someone new who shared so many of my interests. We bonded quickly over our common taste in music. We spent the next few months getting to know each other, and finding out Sudeep was the coolest guy I had ever met. He was funny, patient, witty, laid-back, so kind, and he let me be me. Sudeep’s nature has influenced me positively and balanced me; I would not be the same person without his steadfast support, especially during dental school. Over the years, we have explored and traveled the world and have had adventures, laughs, and triumphs. I cannot imagine these moments with anyone else and am so thrilled to be able to create a lifetime of memories!"

On her Raja's super romantic proposal:

"One of my favorite memories of our engagement is having my friends and family there to celebrate. Sudeep had asked me to marry him with a custom cake that was a huge surprise to me! It's hard to surprise me! He then rented out the rooftop area of a lounge in Scottsdale to celebrate with our friends that night. It was a perfect day and I couldn’t have been happier!"

On her wedding style:

"I love vintage décor. I thought about colors I loved and just branched out from that. Coral and gold are some of my favorite colors so it was very easy to have that to build on for the reception. For the ceremony, we wanted to showcase our amazing state’s natural beauty. The golf course at our venue was unobstructed and provided 180-degree views of the Four Peaks mountains and the famous 300 foot water fountain in Fountain Hills. Having the ceremony wrap at just before sunset allowed for a colorful end to our wedding and some great photo opportunities."

On choosing her wedding lengha:

"We had an idea of what we wanted and it went along with our classic or vintage feel for the wedding. We went with the talented designers, Darshi Shah and Bhavin Trivedi of DSBT Studios for the design and creation of my bridal lengha and Sudeep’s grooms outfit. We spent many hours with them choosing fabrics from raw silk, to looking at textures of fabric to create this look. We became great friends with our design team along the way! They paid so much attention to detail and our personalities. They also created the look for my sister’s wedding and reception outfits. We had less than 10 days in India, and after months of looking online this was better than anything I had been looking at! It was one of a kind! After we left India, we just left it in Bhavin and Darshi’s hands and discussed styling and jewelry and were so pleased with our overall look!"

On her hair and makeup:

"As someone who has been dreaming of my wedding since I was young, I definitely had ideas in mind. Luckily, I had an extremely talented hair and makeup artist who is also a close friend of mine. Pooja knew my style and I left the rest in her hands and I couldn’t have been happier!"

On putting her own personal touches on the wedding of her dreams:

"I loved the idea of making our wedding more personal with my own creative touch. I helped with everything to the prints (programs, welcome cards, signs, etc) to the guest welcome bags, escort cards, and more. I wanted the wedding to have lots of small special and unique memories for our guests!"

Stay tuned for more Filmy Fridays, Maharanis!
