Warwick, RI Indian Wedding by Salwa Photography

This reception post is a doozy, Maharanis! Like I said earlier today, I had too many amazing shots from this gorgeous wedding to choose from, and as you can see from the final exclusive look at this event, I included a bit more than we usually do. I had too! The ever amazing team at Sonal J. Shah Event Consultants really went above and beyond and created one of the most unforgettable and romantic wedding receptions I've seen to date. All of the stunning floral arrangements by Design House Decor turned this ballroom into a luxurious springtime wonder with every delicious detail. Kudos to Salwa Photography for snapping up some really memorable shots that are sure to inspire so many brides-to-be. All-in-all, I'm just in awe of today's wedding and wish it wasn't over. If you're like me and haven't had enough of this gorgeous celebration, make your way to the gallery for more stunning details from this spectacular event!

The bride on her most memorable wedding moment:

"I think the entire reception was the most fun part of the whole wedding week! It was when Amish and I were both just able to relax, spend non-stressful time with family and friends and dance the night away. We just had a lot of fun and this is the part I miss the most about the wedding."

On friends and family:
"None of this would have been possible without the help of sooo many family members and friends. I can't even begin to list the people and the tasks they helped with."

That's it for today lovelies! I hope Maharani Bijal's bridal style inspired you. We'll see you back here tomorrow!

The bride on her hair and makeup:

"I always knew I wanted matte makeup without anything crazy - I worked with my makeup artist to figure out all the small details (i.e. I didn't want a whole row of fake lashes, no glittery eye shadow and shimmery blush). Most of my looks were very matte and I wasn't afraid to try color on my lips."

Don't stray too far, girls. You don't want to miss the floral and decor wonder coming up!

I made sure to incorporate some shots of just the floral and decor so you can really appreciate the look of it all. Make your way to the gallery for even more from this luscious event.

The bride on her wedding style:

"I always knew that I wanted fresh flowers and the wedding to have a very romantic feel to it.
I wanted the mandap to be more modern/floral rather than have the traditional Indian touches to it (because everything else would be very traditional Indian). And my favorite color is PINK, so I knew I wanted to focus on that color without it being too overwhelming - so with our decorators, we went with soft pinks, creams, golds, etc.. My bridal bouquet was a mix of the creams, pinks and the maroon/red that was in my panetaar - so it pulled together all aspects."

On shopping for her lengha:

"We went shopping in India.

Ganesh Pooja sari - G3 in Surat, Gujarat
Mendhi Salwaar - designed by a friend's mom
Grah Shanti Saree - Friendship in Bombay
Garba Chaniya Choli - Paris in Surat
Wedding Panetaar/Saree - Benzer in Bombay
Reception Lengha - Kalki in Bombay

I did spend a decent amount of time on the internet - but I learned very quickly that when you are actually doing the shopping, you have to let go of everything you thought you would be able to find and just have to go with the flow. For example, I always thought (for years) that my reception lengha would be fuschia or magenta pink - and it ended up being all white. You just never know!"

I'll be back with our bride as she gets dolled up for her reception, so stick around!

Warwick, RI Indian Wedding by Salwa Photography

Good day, ladies! Do I have one amazing wedding for you girls today! Salwa Photography sent over some of the most stunning images from Maharani BIjal's wedding. So many in fact, that I had such a difficult time choosing which ones to use in today's posts. There were just too many amazing ones to select from! Planning and design guru, Sonal J. Shah Event Consultants, definitely played a hand in my dilemma because you can't have amazing images without amazing visuals, and wait until you see the out-of-this world floral designs by Design House Decor at this event. Before we jump into all that fabulousness, check out our bride getting ready for her wedding portraits, and ultimately her ceremony, in these eye-catching photos. What a gorgeous bride, right? Check out some of the pre-wedding partying that went down at our bride's garba in the gallery.

The bride on her groom's romantic proposal:

"The Beginning of our Happily Ever After...On Friday, I came home from work and thought I was going out to dinner in Providence with my parents and my sister, Hinal, at this new restaurant near the water called Jacky's. Hinal tried to get me to “look nice” and put on make-up (haha) so we could take pictures…but I was lazy and didn’t put on make-up. I said “whatever, it’s just dinner – I don’t have to dress up that much for it.” Little did I know…My Dad said he needed to meet us at dinner after because he also had to go to a friend’s birthday dinner at another restaurant in Providence (meanwhile, he was with Amish driving him to Providence, near the restaurant). When we got there, me, my Mom and Hinal started walking to the restaurant, which is right near the water and the bridge in Providence. We had to go down some steps…there was no one there! Then I saw a random man standing behind this pillar looking out onto the water (I only saw his back, couldn’t see his face). I was scared because it was dark outside and it was just us three girls – I thought "this guy looks shady and he might have a knife or a gun." Just as I was about to tell my Mom and Hinal to turn around and that we should walk another way, the man turned around and it was Amish!

I was sooo beyond shocked! Back story – we see each other once a month and I had just seen him two weeks ago, so I wasn’t expecting to see him until April! I walked over and he gave me a hug and we started walking towards the center of the bridge. My Dad, Mom and Hinal went off and disappeared (Hinal took pictures of this from behind a tree or something). I honestly don’t even remember the words we exchanged because I was still in shock mode – I obviously put two and two together and figured out why he was here and surprising me. Though, at some point, in the middle of all that, I did say “What are you doing here?!” And he goes “What do you think I’m doing here?” and laughed. We walked a little bit towards the center of the bridge and that’s where he got down on one knee and popped the question! It was cold outside so I had gloves on and after I said yes, I was like “wait, let me take my gloves off” – and then he put the ring on my finger. I was so excited and happy, I didn’t even look at the ring but just wanted to give him a great big hug! I couldn’t help it but I had tears in my eyes (which I never imagined I would – I knew I would be super excited but didn’t think I would ever cry). Then after, my parents and Hinal came back out and we took some pictures. Then we all went to get a drink at The Water Place restaurant. That’s when I realized I hadn’t even seen the beautiful ring Amish gave to me and saw it for the first time."

I have some spectacular details from the wedding ceremony on the way, so make sure to check back again soon!

The bride on the first dance song:

"Nothing can change this love" by Sam Cooke. It's groovy, romantic and best of all, only 2 minutes long!"

On her florist: 

"Our florist was amazing and created our Mandap/chuppah and all of our beautiful arrangements. I sent her a couple pictures from Pinterest and she far exceeded my expectations"

On what she enjoyed most about planning her wedding:

"Fusing the elements of a Hindu and Jewish wedding. We loved putting personal touches into our wedding ceremony and what we created was unique and perfect for us."

On her most memorable moment:

"Standing in our chuppah/Mandap, looking at each other and reciting our personal vows, knowing all the people we love most were right there with us."

That's all for now, ladies! Hope you enjoyed it! We'll see you tomorrow!
