Hello Maharanis! I am delighted to share our next featured Indian wedding film with you today! AACreation sent over this beauty, and I know you are going to love it as much as I did. Our Maharani Maria always wanted a classic, elegant wedding, and I think at first glance you are going to agree that is exactly what she got. Join me for this short film, set on on a beautiful winter day in California as she weds her Maharaja Imran in the lush hills of Los Coyotes Country Club.
Maharani Weddings caught up with Maria on what she had to say on her special day.
"I wanted something simple, the last few years I had gone to some amazing and beautifully lavish weddings, and while I thought they were amazing and stunning, I just wanted something a bit simpler, with a touch of elegance and some vintage touches. The best part of wedding planning was hands down cake tasting, nothing like going to bakery after bakery eating delicious cake!"
"Hair and makeup were the things that I was most nervous about, but I did know what I wanted going in and I also had my artist in mind before the planning began. For the shaadi day I knew I wanted to go with the classic Indian bridal look, red lips, and gold eye. I felt like the whole look was very classic when it was combined with my wedding outfit.
For the mehndi I wanted a nice thick over the top side braid, and I wanted a pinker lip and was pretty open for how she did my eyes. I loved both looks.
"I'm generally not super into jewelry but for the wedding and all the associated events I had such a good time finding pieces that would look good, and now I have this collection of amazing pieces.
"It was really important to me that we not have the typical Pakistani reception where people eat and leave, I wanted there to be a social hour, and for us as the bride and groom to get chance to mingle with our guests. The way I went about getting that was to have a timeline and to impress upon family how important it as for things to happen on time (which they did). In addition to that I kept the dessert hour as a bit more interactive, we had a cookies and milk station with a variety of freshly baked cookies and vintage milk bottles for people to enjoy, along with a gelato station, a manned espresso bar, and of course wedding cake and cupcakes. People were mingling while grabbing desserts and telling each other which flavored to try."
Enjoy Maharanis and we will see you all tomorrow!
