Welcome back to the film blogs where we share a gorgeous Sikh Wedding celebrating Maharani Amy and her boo Mehul. The bride and groom opted to have their wedding at a local gurdwara temple and their reception at the Ashyana Banquets. The venue also served as the caterer and designed specialty cuisine in house. Our bride was smashing in a pretty in pink theme. Both paisley infused lenghas worn on her wedding and reception day were absolutely gorgeous. The timeless decor, based off a blue print designed by Chicago Vintage Weddings, was traditional glam at its best. All the decor just blew guests away. Amy could not stop gushing about her bridal look! Dolled up by Brides by Enrique, this makeup artist certainly knew his way around a blush brush. The gorgeous wedding cake cut by the couple was a mixture of vintage glam with a touch of sophisticated floral work hand baked by Oak Mill Bakery. I am sure many of you can agree that one of the best parts of a reception party is rocking out! DJ D’Stylz and Dhiraj Gupta of JSM Entertainment curated the perfect wedding reception list full of songs that kept the crowd moving. Christina G Photography captured all the still actions while premier cinematographer Old North Film Company put together a wedding highlight for the ages. Hit play as we relive the magical union of Amy and Mehul. Read on below as Amy spills some of the details on her relationship.
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband 6 years ago and reintroduced ourselves approximately 3 years after that. I knew he was "the one" by our 4th date, when he took me out to my favorite hipster spots for Valentine's day.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I've always loved vintage vibes, and was proposed to at an antique warehouse in Chicago, called Salvage One. He hired a photographer and acoustic guitarist to play my favorite songs. Shortly after the proposal, our families and close met us downtown to continue the celebration.
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
I absolutely loved my hair and makeup artist, Enrique from Brides by Enrique. He keeps the calm going during a chaos of an Indian wedding. He knew what would fit my like without having to say much!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to Delhi and really chose the outfits that were innately detailed and stood out in the entire store. I found all my outfits within my first hour of shopping, but continued shopping for a few days before returning and purchasing them!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Definitely food tasting, cake tasting and making DIY crafts with my bridesmaids. I cherish all the fun family and friends bonding during this planning time.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food, alcohol and music!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I loved our first dance, which was "Ho Hey" by the Lumineers. The bridesmaids came out with tambourines and played along to the song.
Thank you for joining us in today’s love journey! See you Maharanis tomorrow.
