Jamaica Indian Fusion Wedding by Erstwhile Pictures

Welcome to Jamrock! As we all know what follows….Jamaica, Jamaica!  I definitely knew I was in for a real treat when planner and designer of Electric Karma - East Coast’s very own Urvashi Mishra presented us with the gorgeous Fusion Indian wedding of Misha and Will. Misha’s love story is quite unique as she met Will in Jamaica in 2001 and the duo remained friends throughout the years. What unveiled numerous years after was a proposal in the coveted beach town and eventually a gorgeous Fusion wedding. Style by Susmita was ready to soak in the warm waters as beauty extraordinaire for this bride. The preparation began at the gorgeous Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa where the festivities were to take place. As Misha’s bridal routine unfolded, we couldn't stop gawking at her gorgeous floral engulfed lengha that just screams refined elegance. This designer piece completely blew us away with the intricate embroidery and the soft stitching on regal silk. It is no wonder that a Sabyasachi piece would make its way into the midst. Nothing beats getting ready next to the blue waters of this gorgeous country and we definitely got our fix watching this bride get together for her unbelievably gorgeous outdoor Indian Fusion wedding. We have all the images of this job dropping affair in our gallery captured marvelously by Erstwhile Pictures. The bride dishes on her destination wedding down below. 

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

We met in Jamaica when we were just 13 years old in 2001. We were both on family vacations (I am from NJ and he is from IL) with our families. we were just kids. We stayed in touch over the years and visited each other every year. Finally about 6 years ago we decided to give the long distance relationship thing a try! About 3 years ago, I moved from NJ to IL to be closer because the travel was becoming too much. Our story is incredible because we met in Jamaica when were kids, got engaged in Jamaica in 2015 and then got married in Jamaica this past March. We pretty much grew up together and were friends since we were little. When we were kids, the internet was new, cell phones barely existed and it wasn't as easy to stay in touch but we somehow managed! It's rare for people to meet, in a strand of such extraordinary events - and find the one they are meant to be with forever.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

We got engaged on March 22, 2015 in Jamaica. The day Will proposed was exactly 14 years since we met in Jamaica. We were on vacation with his family in Montego Bay (we go back with his family every year). Well that night, Will and I had dinner with the family at the Riu Montego Bay and then decided to go on a walk down the beach. Will got down on one knee and proposed on the ocean. It was incredible and the fact that he was thoughtful enough to plan it on our 14 year anniversary of meeting.

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

Planning the wedding was AMAZING! We knew almost instantly that we wanted to get married in Jamaica because of our long history there. We decided we wanted a long engagement because I was still in school finishing my graduate degree. Well in March of 2016 we went back to Jamaica for another family vacation with Will's family. We decided to spend 2 days looking at venues in Montego Bay where we could have the wedding and we fell in love with the Hilton Rose Hall Montego Bay. We knew instantly that we wanted to get married at the Aqueduct and wanted to have our reception right on the beach where guests could have toes in the sand! Once the place and date was locked down it was much easier from there.

I had been following Susmita from Style by Susmita for a long time now and had always known that when I got married I wanted her! So she was the next person I called- she helped me come up with my creative vision for our looks, for the vibe that we wanted. For decor etc. I wanted to really keep it simple and elegant. The fact that the wedding was in Jamaica already gave us a perfect back drop for the wedding - the beautiful mountains on one side and the gorgeous ocean on the there. I went with a very rustic, natural theme for the main wedding day. For our other events (Welcome Dinner), I went a little bit more vibrant and embraced some neons, laterns, market lights etc.

Outfits- this was something I was very particular about. I knew my favorite designer was Sabyasachi! and one of the first things I knew is which bridal lengha I wanted. So me and my mom put that in motion right away. For the bridesmaids and groomsmen - I wanted them to be comfortable but vibrant. For the guys, we went for a very "Beatles" vibe and for the girls we did brighter stripped tops and floral skirts (my dress had floral so it went perfectly).

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

I knew this was the one I wanted right away. I have been OBSESSED with Sabyasachi's work! There was not a doubt in my mind about my dress. It was the first dress I saw, and the one I went with!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?

The best part was working so closely with my mom. My mom was my rock during the wedding planning process. Her and my dad made sure that everything I wanted happened! My mom went out of her way to make sure my outfit was perfect, hair was perfect - and that all my visions came to life for the event. It was really great having that special bonding time with my mom.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

I loved our ceremony. We were really worried about how it was going to work out since neither I or my husband are religious. We took a little of this and a little of that and put something together. It also poured for 30 minutes before our OUTDOOR ceremony! But that kept things exciting and I stayed pretty positive throughout. When we got to our ceremony, you could see the clouds in the mountains, it had cooled off a bit because of the rain and the scene was so romantic and beautiful.

Stay tuned for the gorgeous wedding details and a rocking out entertainment party hosted by M4U Events. See you in a bit!

New Rochelle, NY Sikh Wedding by StoryMotion Studios

As  Rupinder & Teghkaran’s wedding has taught us, no event would be complete without the right wedding planner and Lifetime Events by Jacqueline was on board to make sure all the events in this wedding were streamlined cohesively. For her wedding reception, the bride knew that only a Sabyasachi designer piece would do. The bride’s piece was an uber luxurious modernized garment with intricate gold embroidery. Rupinder paired rich and cultural jewelry that was the perfect compliment to her ensemble and henna artwork by Mehndi by Monika. Mayuri’s Floral Design adorned the wedding’s multiple tables at the Greentree Country Club with tall white and peach floral that was both romantic and lush. Celebrity musician Jay Sean’s very own DJ Biks from the blockbuster DJ dream team Planet DJ Productions made an appearance and kept the crowd moving. No reception party would be complete without the ultimate sound and lighting troupe and DJ USA illuminated the ballroom with perfection. Guests were treated to full Indian cuisine catered by Saffron. The memory makers of the night included Vaaho Photography who shot all the live action with StoryMotion Studios helming all the photos you find in the gallery.

New Rochelle, NY Sikh Wedding by StoryMotion Studios

"The most enjoyable part of the wedding planning process was trying on the beautiful outfits for all our wedding events, of course! Shopping in India is a girl's dream come true because the selections, the designs, and the treatment you get when shopping there is like no other". - Bride, Rupinder. Meeting her beau was one adventure and now the real journey began with Lifetime Events by Jacqueline spearheading the important task of ensuring that all wedding events were streamed cohesively. One of my favorite images from this wedding was the bride reading a letter written by Teg while watching his baraat ceremony from the window. Although she couldn’t be there, she was still able to witness the grand procession. The bride was gorgeous as she walked down the Greentree Country Club that was transformed to replicate a Gurdwara. One of the most distinguished features of the bride had to be her gorgeous henna by Mehndi by Monika. How can flowers on the ceiling not blow you away? Mayuri’s Floral Design created an upside down garden that was full of gorgeous blooms. StoryMotion Studios has captured a gorgeous set of images you can find in the gallery with Vaahoo Photography behind the video lens.

New Rochelle, NY Sikh Wedding by StoryMotion Studios

It all started off with a mug of hot chocolate and laughter that turned into a lifetime of memories for Maharani Rupinder and Teghkaran. The proposal came soon after and before she knew it, Rupinder was planning her big day with Lifetime Events by Jacqueline. Every bride dreams of that perfect wedding outfit. Whether you are celebrating your heritage, carrying on your mother’s traditional family wedding dress, or slipping into a one of a kind designer piece; every garment has a story. For Rupinder, her classic Sikh salwaar kameez was extra special because of her deep-rooted Sikh background. However, Rupinder didn’t stray away from modern sophistication and chose an outfit in a rich shade of pink. Hair and makeup was kept soft and regal by Susmita Patel. No Indian bride would be complete without arms and legs full of intricate, motif designs and Rupinder brought on Mehndi by Monika as her featured mehndi artist. Vaaho Photography got in on all the live action that we cannot wait to share with you all. Head into the gallery shot by StoryMotion Studios for your daily dose of love and read on below as Rupinder unveils her very own love journey.

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

We met, of all places, on Coffee Meets Bagel! This is definitely an unlikely place to meet your soulmate but it happened! Our first date was amazing as he really put the efforts to make our first meeting amazing, including delicious hot chocolate and the museum of art, which I have always wanted to check out. In just a few dates, our connection grew stronger when we realized our backgrounds and core beliefs were very much in-line with each other. With the similarities we had, and the fact that he always made me smile and laugh, it was easy to call him the "one" after just a few dates.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

It was perfect!! He re-created our epic first date by proposing to me at the same spot where we first held hands. He made sure the proposal was exactly what I had imagined, including arranging both our families, some who traveled from different states, to celebrate our big day with us.

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

Planning a wedding is not an easy process, however if you have the right help (including family and friends), the process is much less stressful. I made sure I wasn't shy about asking for help from family because the amount of detailed attention that goes into wedding planning is pretty insane. The vendors were all brought on-board based on friends and family recommendations. I wanted to go off of recommendations only because than I knew what to expect. In the end, I could not have been happier with my vendor selection as they all worked so hard to make out weekend just perfect. I think of all the vendors, the one I had to really carefully keep track of was our florist because, let me tell you, if you let them do what they want, you'll end up spending 10X more than you expect :). I most importantly appreciated my venue staff. They have been extremely accommodating with our needs and requests, which was important for us due to the size of our wedding and specifications from our family members.

Overall, planning was stressful, but all worth it in the end to have had such a spectacular wedding I'll never forget.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

The music, by far.  My husband and I both agreed that the music was the most important part of our wedding sangeet and reception.  Without that, there would be no party.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

The speeches from both our families. They were all so beautiful and they came from the heart, which meant to the most to me.

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.

We had a number of events leading up to the wedding, however the sangeet and reception were the two biggest where we really put a lot of focus into the décor, dancing, music, drinks and food. We wanted our sangeet to be more traditional, so we decorated our hall with beautiful candles, and elaborate colors. Our reception was more romantic and had a gold theme to it. Both were very different, but both were equally fun and just stunning visually.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Yes, stay calm on your big day and take in as many moments as you get.  The day will fly by, and you will want to remember every detail for as long as you can.  And just remember, you are the princess so make sure you feel like one

Coming right up with the wedding!
