Alberta, Canada Sikh Wedding by Capture The Moment Media

Halfway through our Filmy features and it's time for some enchanting shaadi highlights from Alberta, Canada, at Preeti and Jessie's incredible Sikh wedding celebration, shot and edited by the talented cinemagraphic team from Capture The Moment Media! When it comes to the blushing bride, Preeti, we cannot even begin to express how much we have fallen for her bespoken bridal suit in pale pink created by her wedding fashions whisperer at Wellgroomed Designs Inc.. The stunning Sikh bride shined bright like a diamond in her one-of-a-kind creation, and her makeup by Envy Me Studio enhanced her natural beauty beyond perfection. She tied the proverbial knot with Raja Jasdeep in a breathtaking Sikh wedding ceremony at the Maharaja Hall, and followed the unforgettable nuptials with an equally exquisite reception at The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre where she glittered like a million stars in a heavily-bejeweled gown. There are also plenty of incredible pre-wedding highlights included that will take your breath away, and I won't take another second of your day keeping you from this extraordinary little film!

Maharani Preeti, on her and Raja Jasdeep's wedding style:

"To be honest, my husband Jessie and I planned the wedding top to bottom in two months!
The greatest theme that we employed again and again (and a helpful reminder when making tough decisions) was staying true to who we were. We wanted a very authentic affair, something that reflected us both as individuals, and as a couple.

You can see our individual personalities in our attire, and the personality of our relationship through our Anand Karaj."

On creating her dream wedding day fashions:

"I definitely did my due diligence in spending hours scrolling through images on pinterest, and things all of my friends and family sent my way as inspiration. However sticking to our theme of being true to our individual style, I was committed to doing something unique. As I have been designing my own outfits for years now, I decided to take the plunge. Not being a designer by trade, I turned to the incredible Dave ___. The mastermind behind Wellgroomed Designs, was my secret weapon to looking and feeling the like the most beautiful bride; not to mention dressing the most handsome groom. Dave's expertise shone through as he walked me through what fabrics to use, employing his top designers to create the exact right cut for my cape."

On the wedding day moments that stood out to her most:

"For Jessie and I, the main focus of our wedding was the Anand Karaj. The Guru plays an incredibly important role in both of our lives, and to be bound to the One Universal Creator in the way Guru Ram Das Ji himself was married, was our highlight. Our experience wouldn't have been nearly as magical if it were not for the energy and the love shown to us by Dr. Harjot Kaur, who did us the honor of guiding our Lawa."

We're only hald way through the day, my dears! I still have two more sensational wedding films to share with you today, so stick around!I

Norfolk, VA Hindu Fusion Wedding by Boomtown Film Co.

Today's second Filmy wedding wonder features Indian bride, Ashley, the Raja of her dreams, Mehul, and their incredible Hindu fusion celebration in Norfolk, Virginia, planned by the amazing team from KIS (cubed) Events! You'll delight in double the ceremonies from the Catholic wedding, followed by sensational garba highlights, to an Indian wedding ceremony at the Renaissance Portsmouth-Norfolk Waterfront Hotel where Partyland Sajawat decked out the interior with superb floral and decorBoomtown Film Co. shot this beautiful reel and picked up on all the unforgettable shaadi details from Ashley and Mehul's event, from the elegant floral details that lined the pews of the church and the intricate lace on Maharani Ashley's white wedding gown, to her and Mehul's adorable first look at the 1:34 mark and Bridal Elements by Nirjary Desai's gorgeous mehndi work. Regeti's Photography was in attendance to capture it all in photographic form, and we're knocking on their door for an exclusive peek! 

Maharani Ashley, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Mehul:

"Mehul and I met our first year in college at the University of Virginia in 2007. I had seen Mehul prior to meeting him because our dorms were right next to each other. Coincidentally, several of my close girl friends also lived in his dorm and had several classes with Mehul because they were all science majors. It wasn’t until the end of October that we finally met at a Halloween party. Before that night, our paths had crossed a few times, but we had never formally spoken to each other.

Over the course of our first year of college we became very good friends. We were each other's go-to person when we wanted to grab lunch or dinner at the dining hall and we also would study together in the student lounge. Many of our friends encouraged (and peer pressured!) us to date each other, but we were both extremely reluctant since we were such good friends...but about a year later (October 2008), it just happened!"

On their engagement:

"Before I started grad school in August 2013, we decided to take a trip to Cabo. Prior to our arrival, Mehul had been in contact with the assistant at the resort we were staying at, to plan the proposal for the evening we arrived.

The night we arrived, I was under the impression that we would be going to a cocktail party at one of the resort’s restaurants. I was told it was a “VIP Cocktail Party” so I should dress accordingly since we had heard that some celebrities had been spotted at this resort as well. Mehul was rushing me to get ready (as usual) and insisted that we leave on time. Once to we walked down to the restaurant, I realized that no one was there yet! The server had a suspicious smile on his face and greeted Mehul as “Senor Patel.” This was also a little strange and it only got stranger, as we were escorted to the back of the restaurant where the wine cellar was. The path towards the back of the wine cellar was dimly light by candles and a stream of rose petals. Once we arrived at the end, I found that Mehul had arranged a private dinner just for the two of us. I also noticed there was a Microsoft Surface tablet which included a PowerPoint presentation of ‘our story,’ which Mehul hand drew himself. Mehul asked me sit down and watch the presentation, with each slide representing an important part of our 6 year friendship/relationship. The last slide was the exact setting we were in and at the end, Taylor Swift’s “Love Story” began playing (one of my favorite songs!) and he got down on one knee and proposed!"

On her wedding style:

"Because we had several events, it was hard for us to focus on 1 specific theme or palette of colors. Instead, we choose a separate color scheme for each event. We kept the Catholic ceremony simple, yet bright, with yellows, pinks, and a hint of turquoise (to remain consistent with the colorful bridesmaid saris). The Garba was going to be our "brightest" event and we played off our outfit colors and selected hot pink and orange, in addition to hints of green.

We wanted softer colors on Saturday so we opted for a blush pink lighting during the Hindu wedding and carried that over to the Reception as well, while also incorporating lots of champagne gold, ivory, and slight undertones of navy."

On shopping for her bridal fashions:

"Prior to getting engaged, I never thought too much about what my "dream" dress would look like. However, with the help of Pinterest, online blogs, and many visits to the Maharani website, I was able to develop an idea for what it was that I liked. I decided to stick with the traditional wedding colors and focus more on detail work on certain parts of my outfit, rather than having lots of work all over my outfit. With the help of an amazing designer, Surinder Bedi (Image Boutique Shop - Lawrenceville, GA), she helped create the most breathtaking pieces for both Mehul and myself. She incorporated intricate work on the sleeves of my blouse as well as personalizing my dupatta with an "A&M." She did the same thing for my fiance's piece and kept everything so tasteful!"

On her and Mehul's special song:

"We didn't have a special song for our first dance, but we did enter to the song "The Way I Are" by Timbaland feat. Franciscio. As most of our friends know, we met during a Halloween party and this was the song that was playing in the background at the time. Mehul and I bonded over how much we liked the song and that's how our friendship began. Even to this day, when are out somewhere or at an event and this song plays, Mehul and I are always so excited and reminded of how our story began. So it was only right that we come full circle with this song and enter with it for our Reception!"

On working with her vendors:

"Nirjary (KIS (cubed) Events & Bridal Elements by Nirjary Desai) was not only my wedding planner, but also did my mehndi for me as well. She knew exactly what I wanted and was able to create exactly what I had envisioned. The best part about my mehndi design was that Nirjary was able to incorporate the cross + Om that was on our wedding invitation. It was really important to me emphasize that Mehul and I had an inter-faith marriage and making sure that both religions were given equal importance.

Jessica (My Cake Delights) was SO great to work with! She was able to turn our vision into a true reality. We wanted to incorporate our "leaf" monogram throughout our wedding (wedding invitation/stationary, dance floor monogram, step 'n repeat backdrop) and Jessica was able to even use it on our cake! She created a stencil that was identical to our monogram which she used to decorate one of the tiers in our cake. Because we had a large number of guests at our reception (500+) we decided to go with a fake cake and serve sheet cake to our guests. This provided for some cost savings, while also being able to incorporate creative designs on our cake. One tier was our monogram, followed by fondant blush rosettes, an ombre design with diamond-shaped cutouts, which would be separated by a navy satin ribbon (navy being one of the main underlying colors for our reception).

Stay tuned for an out-of-this-world wedding wonder, coming up next!

Sacramento, CA Sikh Wedding by Aperina Studios

Happy Friday, Maharanis! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we're here to start your weekend off extra sweet with five of the most incredible wedding films we could find — starting with this Sikh wedding celebration in Sacramento, California, shot and edited by the terrifically talented team at Aperina Studios! Meet today's first couple of the hour, Raman and Paramveer, as they get ready to head off into wedded bliss with a stunning shaadi planned by Anaïs Event Planning & Design that features an unforgettable Sikh ceremony at the Gurdwara Sahib West Sacramento and a post-ceremony soirée at the White Lotus Banquet Hall. You'll be dazzled by the blushing Indian bride's stunning fashions, her breathtaking mehndi work by the one and only Neeta Sharma of Mehndi Designer and her wedding day hair and makeup by the artists from Elegant Looks and Color Me Makeup. We're over-the-moon for Raman's exquisite dream wedding details and you will be too!

Maharani Raman, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Paramveer:

"Growing up, every girl dreams of the day she will finally meet her prince charming. She diligently plans and eagerly waits to check off every criteria on her demanding "list." Of course, I had my bucket list ready for my prince charming to show up any time I wanted. Throughout college, while most proactively went about searching for their partners, I spent my time trying to get my A to an A plus. After I finished school and started working, I was disappointed that my prince was nowhere to be found. Then one magical Friday, I went to work and my friend told me about this “guy.” Of course, we talked about him for hours: “How did he walk, what was he wearing, how did he look, age, built, etc, etc.” She handed me his number and in all excitement I grabbed it and took it home. I was excited, but I was also nervous. I didn’t want to make the first move and call him, so... I waited. Then, one day I got the will power to finally pick up the phone and see if this “guy” was really as down to earth as she mentioned, and to my surprise, he was! Our first conversation went on for more than 30 minutes, and it seemed so natural. We started talking and right off the bat, we became good friends. We both played it cool, wanting the other person to take the leap forward, but over time this friendship led to much more. January 19, 2014 was the day everything changed. On the day of his flight to India, we both confessed that we had feelings for each other and wanted to spend our life together. Of course it had to play out like an epic movie scene, all taking place when he was about to fly out of the country! We talked on the phone every single day, confessing our love for one another, and we couldn't believe how long it took us to move forward. I cannot imagine ever wanting to marry anyone else. His humble heart, sense of humor, and genuine nature is what makes Pamma such an amazing person. I have always said, “It’s hard to find a person with traditional values/morals nowadays,” but I’m glad Babaji was listening and sent Pamma my way. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in crime. Pamma is and always will be my rock! Our story is what confirms my belief that when two people are meant to be, no matter what comes their way, they will end up together. We started off as two strangers, but with one friend and one brave phone call, we began our love story!"

On their engagement:

"In July 2014, we had already made it official with the families meeting that we were going to get married so I just figured I wasn't going to get a typical proposal with a ring because that would happen at the engagement. To my surprise, my husband had a different plan. On March 15 2015, we went for our first photo shoot pre engagement and right in front of the sacramento bridge, he plays the song "Tu hi to janna meri" and bends on one knee and pulls out the ring. I was shocked because I had thought my ring would not be ready until the first week of june. He literally swept me off my feet."

On her wedding style:

"Growing up, I had always imagined my wedding to be at the West Sacramento Sikh temple. My favorite color was always pink and I had told myself that on my wedding day, I will wear hot pink and not red so thats why for the reception I went with the deep red vintage look. My sister in law helped me plan the decor because we had a vision for something different. For the events we wanted colors that were festive and fun so we played with different colors until we saw our vision come to reality."

On what she enjoyed most about planning the Desi wedding of her dreams:

"The thing I enjoyed most about planning was learning about all the things that go into planning a wedding. When you not the person getting married and planning the details you don't realize what it all entitles. My sister in law was there by my side each step of the way. I have learned so much through this process and with learning my dream wedding came to reality."

On picking out her dream wedding lengha(s):

"Growing up, I already knew the color I wanted my lengha to be. I didn't get the opportunity to go to India so My in laws and grandma went to do the shopping for me. Spend sleepless nights face timing and on the phone. My main interest was just to have something a little different and heavy!"

On her most memorable wedding moment:

"Looking back, Every event was so special to me but the thing I loved the most was seeing all the family come together to celebrate each and every event. All the laughter, fun, and love that was spread made every event so very special. The moment I really cannot forget is the feelings I had right before entering the Darbar sahib of the gurdwara before the ceremony. I have never been so anxious but before I entered, I just prayed everything would turn out perfect and I didn't feel better until my Raja and I made eye contact and from then on, I was no longer anxious, but I cannot ever forget that feeling I had."

On her and Raja Paramveer's first dance song selection:

"Our slow dance song was "je main pinky moge wali". We had help choosing this song from my sis in law. We were both searching for a song that just expressed how much we love each other. My husband and I are very proud of our culture and we love to show it so we wanted a song that captured our essence."

On her hair and makeup:

"For Hair, I had always wanted my hair big and high. Flowers was one thing I thought of a couple weeks before. I wanted orchids but I like simple and not too much so I worked with Jaskaran from Elegant Looks and discussed exactly what I wanted and I was able to order the flowers and the Hair turned out exactly the way I wanted.
Makeup was by Husna at color me makeup and I left it up to her to work her magic. She is one amazing makeup artist, she is great at what she does."

On the role that family and friends played:

"This whole wedding could not have been possible without both families. Our families worked so well together to plan each event. The churra was very special to me, it was just so sweet seeing the Mamas being so careful to put the bangles on my hands and making sure they were not hurting me. My father passed when I was young so when planning the wedding I would always get sad that I will feel his loss the most during my wedding and I did but my family was there by my side every step of the way so I would never feel the loss. My in laws in fact have done so much for me to make sure I get everything the way I want which made everything so very special."

Stick with us all day for more incredible Filmy features, Maharanis!

Maharani Sarah, on her reception lengha:

"I was lucky enough to have my husband's family in India pick out my traditional red lengha for me without actually seeing it in person. The pictures were amazing and it was even more beautiful when it finally made its way to the US. My other Indian outfits came from Chicago and on-line. I spent hours on the internet trying to figure out what I wanted to wear."

Additional thoughts from the bride:

"My mehndi was so beautiful and I really loved how it helped to give a "fusion" feel to our wedding, especially when I wore my white dress.

The jewelry was another exciting aspect of the wedding. The jewelry was either gifted or loaned from my mother-in-law. I also was able to wear a special family heirloom from my maternal grandmother's family which was a very meaningful way to recognize my heritage."

See you tomorrow for some fabulous Filmy fun, my friends!
