Fairfax, Va South Asian Fusion Wedding by Elite One Cinema

This final, energetic highlight reel of the day will have you smiling from ear-to-ear, and that's no understatement! The super adorable bride had me giggling when she literally weighed in on how heavy her gorgeous, red and ivory bridal lengha was — with a smile. And I can truly feel the dynamic and genuine connection between her and her Prince charming throughout this incredible wedding film, which was fantastically captured and edited by the talented team at Elite One Cinema. With help from Bridal Elegance by Suman Khosla, Maharani Leila was able to bring her dream hair and makeup looks to life, and she is stunning from pre-wedding to reception. The wedding ceremony at the Durga Temple of Virginia was brilliantly highlighted and we're positive it was one event none of the guests will soon forget. For the reception, the bride opted for a white, princess gown, and how elegantly she glides on the dance floor at the Foxchase Manor with it. Check out all of the out-of-this-worldly adorable moments below!

The bride, on how she met the Raja of her dreams:

"Kunal and I met on New Years Eve in Temple. As our families finished midnight prayers into the New Year I was introduced to Kunal. That night I knew a higher power had something planned for the both of us. It was only fit we held our wedding ceremony in Temple."

On the super romantic proposal:

"Kunal knows how big I am on family. During a normal afternoon after lunch, Kunal suddenly got down on one knee in a parking lot. So unexpected all I could hear was my heart beating. After quickly saying yes, I heard clapping. I thought it was so nice of strangers to clap for us, but running towards us was both of our families! I was even more excited that they were able to share one of the happiest moments of my life."

On her wedding style:

"Kunal and I knew that we wanted a grand wedding. We both are very modern, but when it came to our wedding functions we stayed very "classic". Our wedding ceremony was very traditional with gold, maroons and reds. While our reception deemed more modern with different shades of blue, gold and lots of crystals! We wanted our wedding to focus around food, drinks, and music. We had the best caterers in Northern VA, top shelf liquor at all our events and the one of the best DJS!"

On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:

"I had such a beautiful time planning our wedding. Kunal being Punjabi and myself bringing my Indo-Guyanese culture to the table was such a learning process. I learned so much about the Punjabi culture and about sacred traditions carried out by my Indo-Guyanese roots. We tried to incorporate all traditions into our big day and have our guests experience two sides of the world. From our music, food and traditional dances it was so exciting sharing a part of us with our guests."

On selecting her dream wedding lengha:

"I wanted an old school and modern clash with my attire, so for this I chose a cream and maroon colored lengha for my big day. I worked with Rahul, from Armaans Bridal in NYC who helped me personally design my lengha from head to toe."

On her most memorable wedding moment:

"I was very emotional throughout all my wedding festivities leading up to my big day. I cried every time I went to a fitting and even shed some tears thinking about my big day. I knew for sure I would cry walking down the aisle. To my disbelief, when it came time to walk down the aisle I was so overjoyed all I could so was smile from ear to ear and even giggle some."

On their first dance song selection:

"Savage Garden- Truly, Madly, Deeply. A beautiful hit from the 90s. This song reminded us of a time when life seemed so simple and carefree. Everyone jokes that Kunal and I are the biggest love birds and this song expressed all the emotions we felt towards each other."

On her hair and makeup:

"I am always very simple, so when it came to my big events I wanted something that screamed "WOW!" but also wanted subtle. As soon as my wedding date was decided I knew I wanted to work with Suman Khosla based out of the Washington D.C area. Suman and I came up for three different looks for all three of my different events. For My wedding I wanted "Old School Bollywood". Suman worked her magic with a beautiful side braid covered in Jasmine flowers, thick winged eyeliner, and a beautiful bold red lip . She hit my vision right on the dot. Everyone raved that I looked like I had just come out of an 80's bollywood film."

On the role the family and friends played:

"Traditional weddings last for 7 days and we did just that. Everyday at our homes was a party leading into the next event. We want to thank our family and friends for such cherishable moments they spent with us. We did not have a wedding planner, so we have to thank our parents who put in so much work to make our special day as memorable as can be. A parent's touch is a true blessing and we were so thankful for all the support they provided."

Miami, FL Indian Fusion Wedding by Cutting Desk Productions

This next Filmy Friday reel is short, but oh-so sweet. It's a love story about how fate would bring two people back together after an initial meeting years earlier — though I'm thinking it was all a part of Raja Nirmal's plan! Cutting Desk Productions shot and edited this remarkable highlight video which features a truly spellbinding Indian fusion wedding event planned by Solea Events at the The Westin Colonnade Coral Gables Hotel in Miami, Florida. You'll have the chance to see some of the amazing floral and decor work that NiKun Events is known for and an exclusive peek into some of the most memorable ceremony moments. The bride, Maharani Jessica, looks simply divine in her burgundy and gold bridal sari, and the groom is undoubtedly dashing in his very own impressive ensemble as well. If we're extra lucky, Nami Dadlani may give us a look at some of the amazing photographs from this incredible wedding affair.

We still have one more splendid wedding film coming up, so sit tight, Maharanis!

Huntington, NY South Asian Fusion Wedding by SWAT Films

Our next bride is none other than talented makeup artist Sana Alam, of Makeup by Sana, so you can be sure that you're in for a delightful wedding film! Her Gatsby-inspired South Asian fusion wedding event at the Oheka Castle, her very own dream venue for like ever, was fabulously filmed and edited by the talented team from SWAT Films, and it is simply breathtaking. The bride enlisted Ayesha Mian Wedding Planning & Decor to plan her big day, and plan it they did! This incredible affair not only boasts a gorgeous venue, but also features the amazing floral and decor work of Elegant Affairs Inc., and being a licensed makeup artist herself, it also highlights the bride's own amazing talents — and she is a knockout, thanks to her own creative and accomplished hands. With help from Karma Salon on her hair, Maharani Sana dazzles in an ivory and red bridal lengha, with a stunning train and coordinating dupatta, which she painstakingly picked out, and she is perfect as can be in it. You'll be seriously wowed by all of the phenomenal wedding decor details and heart-melting moments in this beautiful film, so don't wait a second longer to see it all for yourself!

The bride, on her wedding style:

"I've known for as long as I can remember that I wanted to get married at Oheka Castle on Long Island. It was the only venue I even went to visit. I knew nothing else would compare and it wasn't worth it to me to "shop around" at other venues. Oheka Castle was one of the original mansions on Long Island that inspired the book The Great Gatsby. I thought, "Why not allow the book to inspire our wedding theme?". Our colors included a lot of gold with hints of black, our table numbers were based on characters and places in the book and we even found our favorite quotes from the book and framed them as the party favors for our guest."

On choosing her dream wedding lenghas:

"Hours and Hours... and HOURS on the internet. Since I was a little girl I would always say I wanted to wear a white wedding dress with a long train on my wedding day. However, when the time finally came to choose a dress, I decided I really wanted to incorporate the traditional red that so many Indian/Pakistani brides wear. It took me a long time to figure out a style that would complement a two-toned dress. My dress ended up being a white color top (with a long train), and a red lengha with red dupatta. It was perfect! A special shout out to my cousin Zeerak for helping me find a dress that would complement two different colors as well as stay true to my personal style."

On her hair and makeup:

"I knew I wanted to wear my hair down and to the side, and I hired someone to help set my hair and my dupatta. As for my makeup...I did it myself! I am a licensed makeup artist and thought it was silly to hire a makeup artist when no one knows my face better than myself. I spent the months before the wedding testing out colors and products that would work well with my skin and my outfit. Once I decided on my look, I packed my kit for the day of the wedding and rest is history!"

On the role that family and friends played:

"My family helped with everything! My parents, my sisters (Hina and Arooba), my Aunt (Shehla), and my two cousins (Zeerak and Najla) were an integral part of this whole wedding process. There is no way I would have been able to execute on all the details without them. They were such great sports and were so loving and supportive throughout this whole process. I owe them BIG time."
