The sweetest father/daughter moments are about to hit your wedding-lovin' hearts, my dears, because the fabulously talented PhotosMadeEz has captured a delightful collection of moving memories from Indian bride, Mehak's, wedding day that are sure to make you feel all the feels. The Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson hosted Mehak's Desi dream wedding day, where she tied the knot with the Raja of her dreams, Subin, and there's no shortage of breathtaking highlights from the newlyweds' big day in this remarkable reel. Aside from tugging at our heartstrings, we loved watching as SV Bridal Concepts by Sanjana Vaswani helped the blushing bride get ready to say I do with her hair and makeup expertise. Mehak was a vision in her red lengha as she made her way down the aisle of her outdoor ceremony — towards a stunning mandap by Design House Decor, might I add! The reception moments are filled with more magic than a magician's hat and you'll have to see it all for yourself!
Maharani Mehak, on meeting the Raja of her dreams, Subin:
"We met back in high school, he had just moved to our town and was new. We were introduced to each other at a family friend's house and became friends during high school and remained friends throughout college. However, it wasn't till medical school that we started dating, it was the moment when he flew all the way from medical school to surprise me for my 23rd birthday in medical school just to spend the weekend with me that I knew he was the one and that he was the perfect match for me!"
On Subin's memorable proposal:
"We both live 6 hours apart and he had told me that for Valentine'sDay, which also happens to be my birthday, he was unable to come that year. Though I was a little bummed I completely understood. I was all set to go out to dinner in NYC with my family for my birthday, on our way to the restaurant my dad suggested we take a stop in Washington Square Park since the weather was not too bad, as I stepped out of the care I saw Subin waiting for me with a bouquet of flowers and said he surprised me for my birthday. Still, oblivious I was so happy he was there for my birthday and valentines day, at that point he suggested we take a walk in the park, we stopped in the center of the park where he stopped and asked me to marry me, needless to say I was shocked and said YES, at that point all our close family and friends came out and surprised me as well. It was definitely a memorable birthday!"
On her wedding style:
"We both always wanted something with lots of color and summer colors. For our wedding we had an outdoor ceremony and wanted something bright and colorful and went for the bright pinks. For our reception we had an idea of an enchanted night theme and initially had no idea how to start with the idea, however after meeting with our decorators our theme became a reality with an enchanted garden theme with lots of flowers, greens and lots of candles all around the hall."
On her hair and makeup:
"For my hair and makeup I went with a traditional wedding look for the wedding ceremony. I had always wanted to wear a traditional red lengha for my wedding and kept my hair simple for my wedding ceremony. For my wedding jewelry I decided to wear a Kundan set that had been my mom's and she had actually gotten to wear to her wedding, I had gotten it touched up to add a bit of my own style while in India but got to wear my something traditional that held a special sentimental value to me."
On her most memorable wedding moments:
"The moments right before the reception were special to both of us, all the stress of making sure everything went well was gone. We got to see our reception hall first and spend some time practicing our first dance, it was those few moments that we got to reflect on the amazing week we had had and just laugh over all the fun moments. It was the first time actually all week we had gotten alone time and it was just special to spend time reflecting on all the fun we had with our family and friends."
