West Orange, NJ Indian Wedding by Images by Berit

Hello Maharanis! We’re at the picturesque Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange to revel in the gorgeous reception of Monique and Mayank. When Maharani Monique told us that she incorporated her graphic design skills into signs, banners, personalized water bottles among other things, we knew we were in for a treat! To put it simply, Monique and Mayank’s reception not only redefined glam, but gave us a whole new and enthralling perspective of customization at a wedding. We had a serious case of #decorgoals from just looking at the marvelous work of Elegant Affairs. The asymmetrical drapes against a shimmery backdrop on the stage just lit up the entire ballroom, and on its own, Pleasantdale Chateau was promising given the Art Deco interiors. Maharani Monique twirled pretty in a gorgeous gold and cream gown, as Band Bajha Entertainment entertained the guests with their fusion music. Later when DJUSA took over, he kept everyone on their toes and glued to the dance floor. Blue Moon Video Productions was filming throughout, so as to not miss any of the many significant moments, and all these pictures by Images by Berit is making us wait with bated breath for the film. From signature drinks customized by the couple to Mayank on the guitar singing his own composition, this reception was packed with magical and momentous elements. Check out the gallery to be completely marveled!

Welcome back, Maharanis! Having just seen Monique and Mayank’s outdoor ceremony at Pleasantdale Chateau, we are convinced that we have never seen such a perfect mix of traditional, tasteful, and royal! It was evident that it took particular expertise to orchestrate such magnificence, and decor connoisseurs like Elegant Affairs brought the vision to fruition. DJUSA set the tone of merriment for the rest of the ceremony with a festive and joyous Baraat. Everything from start to end was gleaming in gorgeousness, but our Maharani Monique is on top of that list. Dressed in a green and cream pairing from Roopkala Designers, the gold baroque appliqué embroidery on her lehenga was simply exquisite. “My bridal henna by Mansi Shah was a topic of so many conversations, as I showed off the unique designs including the incorporation of my prince playing a guitar in my henna!” shared the exuberant Monique. Sanjana Vaswani further enhanced Monique’s bridal glory by giving her a side swept updo, and one of the most stunning brown smokey eyes we have ever seen. Guests were treated to lunch and live music from Dolce Ensemble prior to the wedding ceremony. Elegant Affairs outshone in the decor area. A grand gold Mandap with a dome structure overlooked the pond. Hints of decadence permeated through the burgundy drapes and hanging blooms that adorned the aisle on the lawn. The entire podium was luxuriously decorated with embroidered drapes. The happy couple made an exit in full regalia in a horse-drawn carriage, to their reception. Oh and did we share the best highlight? - David Beynon Pena live painted the ceremony! Relive this top-notch splendor through our gallery featuring the excellent work of Images by Berit

Greensboro, NC, Indian Wedding by CB Art Photography

We love receptions that look like an extension of the ceremony, because is there a better way to make everything look put-together? K.I. Weddings chose to retain some key elements from the ceremony, like the floral dome, the gold frames behind the mandap, and all the blush pink accents. Prashe Decor further primped up Meridian Convention and Event Center by placing a gazillion floating candles within individual crystal candelabras on the stage, and a whole lot of lavender lighting to bring out the glint in the crystal tablescapes. Four lovely white and gold tiers of cake sat on a square rosette-adorned blush pink base, a marvel in the name of a cake by Edible Artistry. Payal gleamed in an all-white ensemble with tulle embellished overlays, and twirled with her sweetheart who donned a black tuxedo paired with casual suede loafers. The soiree turned into a musical fest with singer Hemang Thakkar from Rhythm of Dreams, and Anis Chandani on the flute, and DJ Prashant Poudyal coaxed the guests into putting on their dancing shoes with his fab beats! The reception also featured an aerialist from Triad Aerial Artists, who performed during the cocktail hour, and a caricature artist created amusing drawings for the guests. “It was so much fun to come up with these particulars and watching them come to life on the day of,” gushed Payal!

That concludes Payal and Viral’s wedding extravaganza, one that left us speechless to say the least. We caught up with Payal to get the inside scoop of her wedding planning and the entire experience. Here's what she had to say:

 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was lucky enough to be able to go to India twice last year in order to shop for the wedding. Unfortunately, I did not have any luck finding my "dream" lengha at any shop with ready made clothing. My cousin recommended a design studio that she had used for her own wedding and I decided to give it a shot. It worked out perfectly because I was able to choose the fabric, color, pattern, and dupatta to my exact specifications.

 

For events other than your ceremony, tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
I have done a lot of bollywood dances growing up, and one in particular that I performed at a competition was Saath Samundar. I still have the outfit I wore and my niece actually wore that outfit and did the exact same dance as me. The thing that made it even more special was the actual dance i performed was playing in the screen behind her.

We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
For the ceremony, I knew I always wanted to use a blush pink color scheme. Pink was my late maternal grandmother's favorite color(her name was also Gulab!). I also wore some of her jewelry on the wedding day and incorporated photos of her and my paternal grandparents into my bouquet. It was so important to me to be able to honor them and include them in one of the biggest days of my life.

 

Same place, same time, different wedding - come back tomorrow to be visually inspired!

If you confused Payal and Viral’s Welcome Night and Vidhi/ Satak for their ceremony, we won’t blame you - it was just that elaborate! But it was the Mehndi and the ceremony that turned things up a notch. Bringing in a whiff of ghazal and Sufi, Prashe Decor alternated a rich sea green with ochre yellow for the drapes, and the area dedicated to the bride featured yellow seating and embroidered pink bolsters. The indoor ceremony was a total sea change in terms of overall look, and K.I. Weddings perfectly carried out Payal’s vision of a blush pink color scheme. Pink was Payal’s late maternal grandmother's favorite color (her name was also Gulab!), so naturally, it was central to the ceremony. The entrance, aisle, and mandap, were all doused in roses and bouquets, with floating candles inside crystal vases adorning the aisle. Minimalistic chic gold frames with candles placed on the rim constituted the backdrop of the mandap, one that glowed owing to the overhead white floral dome with an accompanying chandelier. Just when we were barely done swooning over all the decor gorgeousness, Maharani Payal stole the show in an intricately embroidered blush pink blouse and red lehenga, topped off with a gold tulle dupatta. You could from one glance that the Kundan jewelry was no ordinary set, and Payal confirmed that they belonged to her grandmother. Payal’s girl squad coordinated in gold blouses and organza lehengas, also in blush pink, and the men were equally glamorous in their beige kurtas and baby pink vests. Meridian Convention and Event Center hosted this ball of a wedding, where Om Foods Catering & Nasta served authentic Gujarati delicacies to the guests. To be fascinated for the fourth consecutive event, check out the photos from their gallery featuring stunning stills by CB Art Photography.

Greensboro, NC, Indian Wedding by CB Art Photography

Some of the most splendid, lively, and opulent celebrations we’ve come across are Gujarati weddings. They brim with vibrancy and details, and we love how age-old customs are held up, albeit in a modern setting. In recent times, a standout Gujarati wedding that we got to witness was Payal and Viral’s, brought to life by the dream team - the planners, K.I. Weddings, cinematography by Memories Films, and CB Art Photography. In addition to the ceremony and reception, they hosted a Mehndi night, a Welcome Dinner, and in keeping with the rituals, a Vidhi & Saatak event. Each event was more glorious than the previous one, resulting in what Payal described as a “labor of love.” The Welcome Night at the Meridian Convention and Event Center was a Bollywood themed spectacle - musical, melodramatic, and zesty. Bollywood magic was replicated, with the faces of Payal and Viral’s families photoshopped onto movie posters, and the groom's table had a custom Bollywood movie linen with bottles of Thumbs Up, Limca and fresh sugarcane juice. Prashe Decor did such a thorough job with details - upturned ethnic umbrellas were suspended from the ceiling, antique lamps and lanterns with colorful lights were placed around display setups, and iconic Bollywood movie posters in postcard sizes were hung along with string lights. Om Foods Catering & Nasta set up interesting stalls that sounded very scrumptious, like a Thirst Aid Station and Indian Street Food! Payal made for the most chic and comfortable-looking bride we’ve seen, in a tangerine lehenga paired with what seemed like a crop top, in bright blue. Her beau matched in a thread-embroidered floral vest worn over a light grey kurta. The next event was the traditional Vidhi and Saatak, which featured many rituals, a Haldi ceremony, and close-knit festivities. Yellow reigned supreme over the decor, and both Payal and her family wore coordinated outfits with a pop of jade green. Belladev Studio Hair and Makeup outdid themselves by giving Payal a distinctive, suitable look for every event, sometimes even two a day - kudos to their styling expertise!
