The dynamic duo of Snehali and Anish got married in sophisticated Gujarati style. Vivacious Snehali preferred simplicity instead of incorporating tons of glitter and bling into her wedding. However, just because she craved a more subdued aesthetic doesn’t mean the celebrations weren’t filled to the brim with sparkle! Snehali and Anish’s cinematic love story was captured beautifully by PhotosMadeEz. The quintessential connection between this lovely couple is so inspiring. We heard it in the pureness of their family and friends' voices as they gushed about the lovebirds through this highlight. Snehal’s choice in bridal wear included vibrant colors such as a ruby ceremony lehenga and cerulean reception gown. She was sensationally adorned in beautiful jewels and henna, and we approve of every gorg look! After all, when else do you get to flaunt your inner Bollywood diva? The bride’s beauty squad was spearheaded by BeautybyHP and Artist Makeup Academy who ensured that not a pleat or bobby pin was out of place. The ceremony and reception took place at the Westmount Country Club and was transformed into a chic haven by Wedding Design and MM Celebrations. The celebrations blasted off into a high octane dance party when the thumping of Bollywood music by Medley Entertainment and DJ Gaurav began rocking the venue’s walls. We’re very excited to share this film with you, so revel in the beauty captured by PhotosMadeEz by clicking play below! And read on for our interview with the Main Maharani herself!
How did you meet your Raja and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Anish on the trip to Canada, Spring Break of my sophomore year at Rutgers. He knew I was the one because he came back home immediately and told our friend Hetal and Ryan, “I found that special person!”
Do you have a super romantic proposal story or engagement memory?
We were engaged in Dominican Republic. We went there to celebrate his dad's 60th birthday. We stayed there for seven days; he did everything I had ever wanted to do on the trip like horseback riding on the beach. He told him his dad hired a photographer for family pictures so he was going down to meet him, i walked in couple minutes later and his nephew was holding a sign that said " Follow the trail of roses" and I knew it then! There he was standing in the sand waiting for me! He proposed, of course I said yes! And said I would like to call my mom. Of course my mom didn't pick up the phone because in minutes he asked me to look up saying "look my parents got a few strangers to bring out the congratulations sign". And when they put the sign down, I was the happiest girl alive (not that I already wasn't) - my parents and brother were there! Along with our best friends! It was a beautiful proposal!
Tell us about your wedding style. When you sat down to really figure out how your dream wedding would look, did you start with one central color, a palette of colors, or a theme that served as your inspiration?
I just knew I wanted simple and classy. I didn't like bling, simplicity was the key!
What did you enjoy most about the process of planning your dream Indian wedding?
I enjoyed shopping in India as I got to spend time with my family in India.
How did you choose your lenghas? Did you work with a certain designer? Did you spend hours on the internet first?
I wanted something very simple and of course the parents were against it and wanted me to wear something heavier. But I knew this lengha was the one when my brother said this is it!
Looking back, was there a really special moment that you remember from your wedding that stands out as the most magical?
Enjoying every bit of the ceremony and reception as we did not stress one bit thanks to our wonderful families, vendors, and of course the coordinators!
Have a wonderful Monday Maharanis!
