Cinnaminson, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

When Maharani Palak hand plucked Platinum Dream Events to help plan her Indian wedding, the stellar company truly picked the creme de la creme wedding vendors. One of favorite parts of the day is when we get to hit play on a highlight film and reel in all the glorious details of yet another fab Indian wedding. Palak and Kunj tied the wedding knot at The Merion. Known to house more than one auspicious Indian event, the venue was adorned to the T with decor from Anand Flowers and Wedding Design. The bride wore a couple of outfits; each one a designer piece in its own right. After being dolled up by Style by Susmita, this bride hit her multiple events dripping with luxury and class. The groom’s party showed up to the wedding with their own style of flair. The groom was perched on a horse from Echo Lakes Stable for his baraat led by Premier Entertainment USA LLC. After their Indian wedding ceremony, the couple celebrated their reception party with the party getting completely party ready in a mind blowing baby pink and gold lengha. I am partial to details and this bride’s attire and makeup glam was just simply perfect for photographer Lightyear Studio. The guests danced the night away at The Merion while munching on fine Indian eatery from the catering masters, Moghul Caterers. The spacious quarters of venue was bedecked in the ultimate in class, dripping with luxury and glam that truly remains classless in this venue. Platinum Dream Events truly stands by their personal quote of “You dream it, we create it, you live it.” Hit play and take a breather as we plow through this cinematic love journey!

 

That’s it for today, folks. But, we are most certainly not done showcasing the best of the best. See you tomorrow!

San Jose, CA Indian Wedding by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema

Here at Maharani Weddings we love a good highlight film. True that one cannot truly capture the essence and heart of the multifaceted days of Indian weddings. However, there are some cinematographers that go above and beyond to capture all the moments that are treasured for a lifetime. Vijay Rakhra of Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema has brought us a whole new element of charmstastic cinema with Maharani Neha and Kevin’s luxurious Indian bash at the Dolce Hayes Mansion. For her numerous events the bride was bedecked by Lavina Shah’s blush brush, bringing this bride’s beauty heightened up a notch. Recognizing the works of Mehndi Designer, this bride’s henna was most certainly on point. What is a baraat without horse and harmonics? Maharaja Kevin brought in his entrance with a bang from a majestic horse from Buzzard Roost Ranch and the Dhols of Desi Productions. The spacious quarters of the Dolce Hayes Mansion was fancied up by Milaap Events that has truly brought a new plane of ornamentation to the wedding decor world. The venue was lit up by Desi Productions who also brought the Bollywood beats to the dancefloor. Guests were treated to the ultimate Indian cuisine from Tandoori Nites fueling them for the fun night ahead. Hit play and revel in all the details! We featured this bride last year and the pics by Anita Martin Photography are one to be relived over and over again! After you hit play on the video and are jonesing for some more information on how to plan your big day, head on down below where Maharani Neha dishes out all the juicy details!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

We actually met through a dating website. Our first date was lunch at a local restaurant, which was completely out of character for me since I almost always do coffee for a first meeting. I knew he was the one within a month of dating him. He was so thoughtful, kind and such a gentleman. He was genuinely interested in me and I remember being so excited to tell my best friend after our first kiss!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

I had somewhat of an idea when he was going to propose since there was a buzz about it between us, my friends and family. I caught the clue the day it happened when he started acting a little strange--asking me what my plans were and if I would be able to "dress up" in the middle of the day. We walked over to my favorite park by my house and as I turned the corner, I saw a bench in the rose garden elegantly decorated and his brother off to the side taking photographs. As soon as he popped the question, both of our families came out from behind the rose bushes and surprised me! We then whisked away to spend the remaining weekend in Napa at our favorite winery. It was a perfectly sweet proposal!

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.

Well, I am generally an extremely organized type of person so I basically made Google sheets that I shared with everyone involved. It was an easy way for everyone to keep up to date and contribute to the planning process. I am pretty sure I would have gone insane without them.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I perused a lot of Pinterest photos but didn't have anything specific in mind. We tried dozens of stores in India, and as it classically happens, I just knew it was the one.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?

It would probably be actually selecting the colors, flowers and decor. Oh and the cake tasting!

What did your guest particularly love about your Wedding?

Our food was phenomenal and the DJ was great. We all really enjoyed the reception dancing and kept it up until well beyond closing time!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

Most definitely the moment Kevin sees me at the Mandap. We had actually already seen each other during our photoshoot prior to the ceremony, but I think it was the buildup of the actual ceremony which made this snapshot extra special. His cousins held up a white sheet between us and I remember getting teary eyed seeing him for the "first" time after they dropped the sheet.

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.

The dances were incredibly fun! Kevin's cousin was our wedding choreographer essentially because she choreographed almost everyone's dances--an not just for the reception, but also some small performances during the baraat! She did an amazing job and we could not have pulled off such a beautiful wedding without her.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Stay calm. Being organized will be your best friend. As long as you know there is a plan, things will get done. It took me some time to get used to handing off responsibilities, but it will save your life. Take your creative strengths and apply them to the wedding, but divvy out the rest. And don't be afraid to ask your fiance for help.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

Something I really appreciated we did was to choose bright and vibrant colors, because they not only look beautiful in person but they photograph amazingly with all the colorful Indian outfits.

Northern California has been hit with a steady doust of rain, so if are looking for some more Desi fun trying to beat the wet streets, check out some amazing films captured by our Platinum Guide Member Michael J. Scott Productions. See you tomorrow!

Long Beach, California Indian Wedding by Robles Video Production

Today’s film highlight captured by Robles Video Production is one that encompasses Bollywood flair, fusion of customs and design wear for the ages. Maharani Amanjeet and Sudhir wanted to blend both of their backgrounds, Sikh and Hindu, into their special day and held two different ceremonies at the ballroom at the Hyatt Long Beach California. The pre festivities included a colorful sangeet and mehndi night with henna artist Neha Assar. I am floored with the design work of this artist and looking forward to more of her work in 2017! One of my favorite baraat entrances to date is the waterfront gondola ride to the Hyatt Long Beach California. Can you say unique and creative? The baraat ceremony was led by none other than Northern California’s infamous dhol player Malinder Tooray who rocked the entrance! The couple donned a matching coral pink and silver ensemble. I anticipate a large number of brides leaning towards a slate gray or silver lengha and Maharani Amanjeet most certainly has set the bar! Maharaja was simply just dapper in a designer piece sherwani that was both charismatic and sophisticated. It’s no surprise to see a bride don over the top outfits but I was elated with Amanjeet’s bridesmaids floral saalwaar kammez’s! The way these ladies shined coming down the aisle before the bride was just so picturesque! The Sikh wedding was followed by a customary Hindu ceremony with that was decorated with detail in mind by Bloom Box Designs. The following day the venue was transformed by Bloom Box Designs into a party haven that was full of performances, dance offs and family fun! The bride was a stunner in a twinkling red and gold lengha that was a nod to classic Bollywood royalty. No reception party would be complete without the euphonic harmony and Vik Dhillon of Sound Nation made sure this party never skipped a beat! A Panache Affair certainly knows their way around the wedding circuit and designed a wedding any Maharani could appreciate. We are excited to feature this wedding in its entirety and are anxiously awaiting the stills from Greycard Photography. This film calls for a steaming cup of chai with an extended highlight you are just going to love!

Cheers to Amanjeet and Sudher! See you tomorrow, dolls!

Jersey City, NJ, Fusion Wedding by Live Picture Studio

“This is the start of something beautiful,” went the background song of the wonderful wedding film of Ashwinee and Jeremy - totally apt and definitely gave us goosebumps! This one is a story for the ages, and the way Live Picture Studio brought it to life was simply admirable. The entire film flowed like a narrative, kind of like a symphony that leaves you speechless at the end. Ashwinee and Jeremy’s fusion wedding blended Indian and Jewish traditions in a distinctive manner, and Chetali Shah Gumaste of Wedding Elegance NYC ensured that it was planned and executed seamlessly. Hyatt Regency Jersey City was the perfect venue, and the outdoor spot chosen for the ceremony was so scenic and picturesque with the skyline and waterfront views. It was truly a moment of glory for Sachi Sood, who was instrumental in executing the cultural fusion. A chuppah-style mandap was set up in the outdoors, and it had a bit of everything - rustic charm through the floral arrangements on top, organza and sequin drapes brought in the glam factor, and white pillars to neutralize everything and gel in with the thematic decor. A highlight of this film was that Live Picture Studio emphasized on the significant and sentimental moments by juxtaposing the right beats at the right time. We also loved how we got to hear their love story through family and friends. Ashwinee’s momentous walk down the aisle was cinematically dramatized and really added a certain oomph to the video. Accompanied by her parents, Ashwinee blushed as she walked down in a quintessential red ornate lehenga that she paired with a statement matha patti and bejeweled choker. Pauline Nobles did a terrific job overall with the hair and makeup, but the side-swept, braided low bun was particularly noteworthy. For the ballroom reception, Sachi Sood combined vintage, Art Deco style frames with modish decor elements like crystals and sequined ivory drapes. Everything looked super grandiose and surreal, and we thoroughly enjoyed watching Ashwinee and Jeremy waltzing in their western ensembles. All the guests seemed to have a ball dancing to the beats of the DJ from Sunny Entertainment, and taking fun, kooky pictures at the photo booth. Hit play and revel in this cinematic feature! 

We hope your week is off to a great start with Ashwinee and Jeremy’s film! For more such films, swing by the blog soon because we bring you wedding inspiration everyday!

Phoenix, AZ Indian Wedding by SkyPoint Productions

Every so often, amidst the glitz and glamour of Indian weddings, we come across a love tale that just makes us gush with joy, laughter and tears. Such was the case of Nikhita and Sarang’s wedding celebration that was infused with elements of a Bollywood love tale. With Maharani Nikhita’s ambrosial smile to her twinkling eyes, and Sarang’s sharp looks and stylish flair, it would be hard pressed to convince us that this is love was just as genuine as the words spoken in this cinematic highlight. SkyPoint Productions sought to create a same day edit that captured the essence of what is love and wowed the Editorial team here at Maharani Weddings. The production team managed to construct highlights from the festive and colorful garba, to the sangeet  was a visual delight on its own right down to the outdoor wedding at the Chateau Luxe Gardens. The bride donned multiple designer lenghas that forayed a multitude of different colors. No gorgeous bride would be complete with a makeup master and this Maharani brought on none other than Makiaj Beauty to make her truly feel and look like a Bollywood celebrity! Nikhita’s wedding was the very first wedding to be showcased on the 25,000 square feet garden that was a new addition to the Chateau Luxe Event Venue which was a fond remembrance in itself. Such series of events calls for an extraordinary planner and Event Architects constantly reminds us what fairytale dreams are made of. Each event looked fabulously effortless. At the heart of every Indian wedding remains the love of family and this wedding certainly had no shortage. I can safely declare this to be a timeless love tale that can be replayed over and over simply by pushing play.

 

The photography stills were captured by LightRain Images and we absolutely cannot wait to feature the wedding in its entirety! See you all tomorrow!
