Paradise has been found and Joseph Esser Photography has snapped plenty of pics to prove it! Serving as the supremely dazzling backdrop to these adorable lovebirds, Hawaii’s North Shore is a glamorous beach wonderland with soft sand, thick green foliage, and an abundance of space to walk hand-in-hand as newlyweds! Before the after party gets started with the help of N-D Mixx Productions and Town Kaimuki, this sweet bride and groom take time to simply soak up the sun and be in love. Good decision! If their portraits are this spectacular, the reception has to be incredible! But first, I need to see the whole gallery!
For their ceremony, this couple includes a blend of traditional elements to reflect their Indian, Pakistani, Hawaiian, and Japanese heritage. The result is serious beauty and a brilliant tribute to their families! With the sun shining overhead, Maharani Shaiya and her Raja Sachin exchange Hawaiian-style leis of white and purple orchids and smile, smile, smile as they are officially proclaimed hubby and wife. The entire scene here captured by Joseph Esser Photography is a waterfront fairytale thanks to the planning and design superstars at Let’s Do This. It just makes me bubble with wedding cheer! Have I mentioned that I totally love weddings? This one is so gorgeous, I can’t wait to sit in the sun and check out the gallery!
I promise you are going to be so inspired by their beautiful portraits up next!
A tropical Indian wedding in a Hawaiian paradise! I’m there! Joseph Esser Photography brings us this truly magnificent affair set just steps from the ocean under a beaming blue sky. Maharani Shaiya is glorious in a snow white gown with intricate gold beading. Her mehndi is a swirling masterpiece that totally suits the embroidery at her wrists. I love this! And, this outdoor, beach-beautiful mandap with breezy gold draping is dream-come-true perfection. Loulu Palms Estate on the North Shore is the ideal venue for a bright afternoon event full of oceanfront charm. I have to see the whole gallery!
See you super soon with their sunshine-y ceremony!
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a Film-y Friday special that you MUST sit down for. It requires your full attention because this is one highlight reel that is out of this world. When I tell you that it was put together by the insanely talented team at Pacific Pictures it will come as no surprise, but the magic in this video is something totally unique, and something that we don’t see every day. As we told you yesterday it’s the wedding of Maharani Vaishali, planner extraordinaire for 10 years before meeting her Prince, so you know that the wedding is going to be beyond fabulous. And the details? Insane. A surprise jet-ski baraat? Totally blows my mind. But, what Kevin and his team did so beautifully is capture that very special, very true love of this amazing couple. The groom’s tears upon seeing his bride, Maharani Vaishali’s quivering voice as she hears her vows read back to her, and of course, their overwhelmingly enthusiastic entrance to their reception. Captured only the way video can do it justice, and when it’s by Pacific Pictures, it’s a whole lot sweeter!
If you missed any of the Indian wedding lovelyness this week, here are a few of my favorite posts :
I am head over heels for these Mini Maharanis!
The best part of being a Maharani are the three outfits and that means three bridal Choos.
Heavenly white cherry blossoms.
The perfect shade of pink for this bridal lengha.
And, to make your Friday fly by, here are some fun links from around the web :
Every bridal shower, or party for that matter, could use this DIY cupcake stand!
Wouldn’t this be RAD to wear to a reception? Perhaps, even your own?!
Finally, I would like to take a minute to welcome our newest Platinum Guide members :
Have a fabulous weekend Maharanis!

If you are just settling in for the day we are featuring the most divine Destination Indian wedding by Salwa Photography. I am loving our Maharani’s emerald green lengha, pastel bouquet, and totally adorable personalized hanger. Also, make sure you take note of the groom’s royal sherwani. Dressed to kill in creme and gold, there is nothing like sprinkle of green to make these lovebirds look like total perfection. But alas, with Rose Events at the reins, it’s no wonder that everything comes together seamlessly.
Okay Maharanis, meet me right back here in a few!
