Cancun, Mexico Destination Indian Wedding by Elevate Creations

We simultaneously felt relaxed and energized after watching the beautiful Cancun wedding film of Reepa and Shiv created by Elevate Creations! The festivities were jam packed and totally out of this world, from the LED accessorized dancers to the aerial artists to the fire dancing troupe. It was so heartwarming to see the couple and their guests throw all their worries to the wind and rock out during this epic beach side extravaganza. Envi Event Planning did a fantastic job planning the wedding, and all events flowed seamlessly. Though the beach side vibe was relaxed, the couple went full glam with their bridal looks! We’re such a fan of Maharani Reepa’s sleek updo and dewy makeup by Styling Trio, and loved how her red and lehenga popped so beautifully against the crystal clear water and white sands. Shivani then slipped into an angelic, beaded ombre lehenga for her reception extravaganza decorated by Latin Asia Destination Wedding Decor, and guests had the time of their lives dancing to banging beats and chowing down on incredible eats by Taj Mahal Cancun and Hard Rock Hotel Cancun. And everyone was awestruck by the magical fireworks display that ended the night with a literal bang. Hit play to watch this epic film, and if you want more beachy goodness, check out the full gallery by Peter Nguyen Photography, or scroll below for our full interview with Reepa. We loved learning all about this warm, loving duo and the behind the scenes action from this incredible celebration! 

Description of the Day

Shiv and I had everything but a conventional relationship. If you let him tell you the story of how we met, then he would say that he was a man with smooth moves and had me from the second he sent me a message on Facebook. However, if you let me tell you the truth, he was nothing short of a creepy guy on Facebook trying to sweet talk me. Nonetheless, he won. I married the guy! And I must say, it was the best decision I have ever made.

Shiv and I had one goal for our wedding, to make it epic! So we decided to go to Cancun and have a destination wedding! Why Cancun? Well, why not Cancun? It’s a short flight from Atlanta, it has breathtaking beaches and it’s CANCUN!

We wanted to pick the perfect place, an all-inclusive resort where guests would feel like they were truly pampered and to give them a once in a lifetime experience, but most importantly for them to feel like they weren’t at just another Indian wedding. Thus, we found Hard Rock Cancun!

The best part about a destination wedding is the relaxing environment.I can honestly say that our stress level was very minimal. Shiv and I would wake up and almost every morning we would go get a massage, walk the beach, and have breakfast with whatever friends and family were around. One of my favorite things about my wedding was that all of our guests were in one spot. Any and everywhere I looked I was surrounded by loved ones.

Our wedding weekend began with a private VIP check-in that was set up with food and drinks just for our guests to enjoy followed by a welcome dinner on the Breeze Terrace that evening. The next day we had our Garba night indoors, inside the ballroom. Yes. That’s right. A destination wedding and I had an event indoors. But trust me, the guests appreciated an event indoors. We had a little surprise planned for our guests. As they entered the ballroom they were greeted by aerialists that were suspended from the ceiling, serving them drinks. Towards the end of Garba, we had a water drums show where my guests were able to engage and come up to play with the drums after the show was over. This was fun for the kids and adults alike!

Friday was the official wedding ceremony which took place on the south side of the beach; it was simple but elegant. The biggest surprise for our guests at this event was when Shiv and his groomsmen made a grand entrance via Jet Skis! Yes, one of the scariest moments of my life… having the man I am about to marry jet ski through the waves trying to get to the mandap. But as he approached the shore, DJ Hiren had the music blasting. Raman and Sahib had the dhols beating and the guests were dancing and cheering Shiv on. After the wedding, all of the guests retired to change their clothes and met us at Ipanema which is the nightclub located inside of Hard Rock. We were able to get DJ Hiren on the turntables and we danced all night. It was basically the pre-reception to our reception the next day.

Now for the reception. This was the last official wedding event and we had to make it one to remember. We had a cocktail hour followed by a fire dancing show before our guests were seated for the reception. This fireshow was amazing! My last surprise was not only for my guests but also for my now husband. During our first dance I was able to coordinate with Hard Rock to have fireworks go off over the ocean at just the right time. Shiv was completely surprised and my plan was executed perfectly!

Once the reception was over, the dholis escorted us and the entire wedding party from the rooftop terrace to all throughout the hotel and back to Ipanema. We had the entire hotel dancing to the instrumental performance by Raman and Sahib.

Throughout our entire wedding weekend Nadira and Elvia ensured that nothing went wrong and if it did, I to this day have not heard about it. Peter Nguyen, Stephen Renney and their teams made sure they caught every single moment, even if that meant they had to jump into the ocean fully clothed with all of their equipment. DJ Hiren, Raman and Sahib along with Johnathan and his team with Drums of Paradise gave us that wow-factor we wanted to make our wedding epic. Saku and her team did an amazing job decorating all of my events,indoor and out! Last but not least, the entire team at Styling Trio came out to make me, my bridesmaids, my family and my groom and groomsmen beautified for the events and did an amazing job. Yes, the groom and groomsmen had their hair and makeup done too.

All in all with the help of our family, friends and vendors, Shiv and I successfully executed our epic destination wedding!

Thanks so much for sharing Reepa!

McLean, VA Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

Today, Photographick Studios brings us the sensational Sikh/Hindu shaadi film of Shaily and Gurpreet, and we’re enamored with every sentiment detail. The darling duo may have met in a somewhat unromantic locale (a college dive bar) but the rest of their story is filled with hearts and amor! Maharani Shaily told us, “I knew Gurpreet was the one when I left a date with him one day and my heart hurt because I already missed him so much.” Too precious for words! Their monumental wedding weekend lived up to their sweet love story, and this video shows that every moment was bursting with color and vibrancy. In the dual Sikh and Hindu ceremonies at the Guru Gobind Singh Foundation and the Sheraton Tysons Hotel, both the bride and groom’s heritages were center stage to kick off their union while honoring their upbringing and families. Throughout the proceedings, Shaily dazzled with her bridal glow, and was further beautified by masterful henna designs by Bhavna's Henna. Meanwhile, floral and decor aficionados from Yaadein transformed the Sheraton Tysons Hotel into a glittering paradise, and we wish we could have seen all the beauty in person! We’ll have to be satisfied by this stunning wedding film by Photographick Studios. For more of this magical weekend, head over to the complete gallery by Photographick Studios for plenty more dazzle. And make sure to scroll below for our exclusive interview with Maharani Shaily!

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

My first meeting with my Groom was straight out of a rom-com. We met in a dirty college bar over a shot of tequila. We didn't start dating until later though. I knew he was the one when I left a date with him one day and my heart hurt because I already missed him so much.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

My Groom was trying to be really romantic and propose to me in DC in front of the Washington Monument. Unfortunately, I ruined the moment for him. I had a runny nose, a cough, and I had just tripped down the stairs of the Lincoln Memorial and skinned both my knees. So he decided to wait for a more photogenic moment. He proposed the next day at a small family gathering.

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

I actually bought my bridal lengha online at Cbazaar. I had tried on a few pieces in India the year before when we went for my sister's wedding shopping and didn't find anything I liked. When I finally discovered Cbazaar, I was a little hesitant. But everything I ordered from there fit great and was really high quality.

I had all red in mind when I first started looking for bridal lengha but I quickly realized that it wasn't quite the look I was going for. I ended up with a mostly white lengha with splashes of red.

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

Cake testing and searching for exotic cars ;)

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

My family put together a dance for the reception that was particularly memorable. It was really catered to the two of us - all our favorite songs, all our favorite dance moves, and some surprise guests too.

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

Plan to rest between events and make sure you get a lot of sleep! You think you'll be fine staying up late and waking up early but the lack of sleep really takes a toll and it's noticeable in the pictures.

Thanks Shaily! We'll be back tomorrow with another glorious wedding film!
