Phoenix, AZ Fusion Indian Wedding by Amoroma Productions

Amoroma Productions brings us Patricia and Prabhav’s vibrant fusion wedding extravaganza! The first moments of the clip shows the joyful duo preparing themselves for their sunshine drenched ceremony. While Prabhav boogied on his trust steed from KC's Classic Carriage Company, Maharani Patricia sparkled under the cloudless sky in pure hues of red, blue, and yellow. Apropos Creations created an intricately draped ceremony space, and the beautiful Patricia made a showstopping entrance under the gauzy fabric. Brides to be, we think that a draped entrance is such a fresh option compared to the more tradition candle or rose petal strewn aisles, especially if you’re having an outdoor soiree! After Patricia and Prabhav were minted as Mr. and Mrs., they exchanged their traditional Indian garb for black tie finery! Patricia's gown was modern mixed some with inspiration from the jazz era. We are obsessed with every part of this look! Coupled with a glimmering antique headpiece, glam curls by Makiaj Beauty and mehndi by Henna by Purvi, Patricia was positively breathtaking. Guests were treated to a reception ballroom drenched in golds, blues, and tons of blooms at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge designed by Apropos Creations. Everyone went wild when the beloved newlyweds performed their sensational first dance, and swarmed the dance floor when In the Mix Entertainment blasted the latest and greatest Bollywood club bangers. Watch the cinematic clip below, and take a look at a bounty of beautiful images by Light Rain Images awaiting in the full gallery!

Beautiful right? We'll see you bright and early with another fabulous film tomorrow morning!

Arlington, VA Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

We hope you all had the most fabulous Fourth of July! We know that some of you may be exhausted after yesterday’s festive outings, so we have the perfect clip to pep you up! Photographick Studios brings us a gorgeous video from Arlington, VA featuring the lovely Puneet and Karan. They're such a joyful duo, and we believe that their zest for life will take them to great heights together. This clip is a perfect example of why we love Indian weddings so much! Everything from the delectable food by Indaroma and melodies by DCs Dynasty had us buzzing with excitement. As Karan waited under the mandap with restless anticipation, guests were able to bask in the beauty of the magnificent ballroom at The Ritz Carlton - Pentagon City, adorned lovingly with wisteria blooms, whimsical draping, and twinkling uplighting by L'Ambiance with planning by Sagina Wahi - SW Events. Finally, romantic music by DCs Dynasty floated through the air, announcing that the lovely bride was ready to make her grand arrival. Everyone took a collective gasp as Maharani Puneet floated down the aisle in her pink and amber custom designed gown. Witness true love in this film by Photographick Studios and we guarantee you’ll be dancing in your seat! For more of the action, witness all the fun in the full gallery by Photographick Studios or scroll below for our interview with the main Maharani herself!

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

We met through a mutual friend in 2011 at George Mason University. In October of 2015, we both decided to take our five years of friendship and grow into a loving relationship.  After dating for few months we both knew we were made for each other.

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.

Planning our wedding was not hard for me as my husband is Karan Kapoor who is one of the main DJs with Dynasty AV & Entertainment (aka DCSDynasty). He planned 99% of the details as he wanted to take the burden of my shoulder and only wanted me to care about my wedding outfit, and hair & makeup. He is very familiar with all the venues and vendors. He had asked me a few questions and learned about my ideas, thoughts, and details about venue. He had presented a total of 18 venues to me from which we narrowed it down to one (The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, VA). I wanted our decor to be very elegant and classy. I wanted our wedding ambiance to be a mixture of white and gold. Tall trees with hanging candles, and of course a lot of flowers. My overall experience was amazing with the Venue, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, DJ Services, Lighting, and Cake.

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

I had many different ideas when it came to selecting my bridal lengha. I really wanted my bridal lengha to be have combination of pink and amber color. I visited India last year and had my lengha costumed made with the design I had in my mind. As far as reception dress goes, my mother in law, Karan's mom designed my Reception outfit which I did not get to try on till the week before our wedding. It turned out to be fabulous.

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

The most enjoyable part of the planning process was that I did not have to research or look for the vendors. My husband did a lot of the homework and most of the running around. He always came up with new ideas. Which was helpful and we both had to sit down with our selected vendors to finalize the details.

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

A really special moment in our wedding that constantly replays in my mind is when we both saw each other morning of our wedding and looked at each other in tears. We both knew we couldn't wait to get married and spend rest of lives together.

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

Words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be would be enjoy every single moment up till your wedding.

Thank you Puneet! Have a lovely Wednesday Maharanis. We'll see you all tomorrow!

Leesburg, VA Indian Wedding by RIMAS FILMS

In this wedding film by RIMAS FILMS, beautiful bride Soorya descended the aisle in a shower of bubbles, which was indicative of the couple’s playful energy. Soorya and Ankit personify the notion of marrying your best friend, and this clip contains the perfect balance of romantic elegance and cute moments between the lovebirds! For instance, we were tickled when the couple’s emotional first look ended with the duo playing a round of mini golf. Their outdoor ceremony at Lansdowne Resort and Spa was breezy chicness at its finest, while the reception was a dazzling, black tie extravaganza. Kudos to the planning and design aficionados from Preeti Exclusive Creations and the floral and decor team from Sarah Khan Event Styling for pulling off so much prettiness! As the weekend progressed, Maharani Soorya amped up the glamour, beginning in a classic red lehenga and ending the celebrations in a sultry burgundy gown. Jaws dropped as the loved up duo performed their first dance, which was followed by an entertaining array of performances from loved ones. Deliciously fragrant food from Bollywood Bistro and dessert from Classic Bakery only added to the exciting buzz inside the reception ballroom. The festivities then escalated to new heights during a dance off led by the talents at Deejay Rish. Witness all the fun in the video by RIMAS FILMS!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ankit through my Brother-in-Law, Prabu. Prabu and my sister threw a bachelor party together for their friends in Atlantic City and Ankit and I immediately hit it off. Unfortunately, I moved 3,000 miles away to Los Angeles for Medical School a short time later, but Ankit stuck through it with me. With him, there wasn't one moment that I knew he was "the one". It was the little things, that built up to being big things that made me sure he had already become "the one."

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.
Planning our wedding was no easy feat. Not only were we planning on having the "Big Fat Indian Wedding," on a holiday weekend, but I was also away for rotations and school for most of the time. This meant, lots of planning, with lots of time zone differences. As a result, we started planning early--I mean very early. Our venue was booked a year and a half before the event, and we had all of our core vendors nearly a year before the event. As we got closer to the wedding, Ankit and I were both able to be a bit more available as we were both on the East coast, but it took a lot of juggling. Our wedding planner, Preeti, made so much of this easier for us. For example, I was pretty heart set on donating leftover food from our Reception to a local homeless shelter, and despite the odds, Preeti was able to make it happen! In terms of Decor, I left a lot of the details in the hands of our decorator, Sarah. We trusted her vision, and once we gave her a sense of what we wanted, she was able to use her creative license to create a weekend we could have never dreamed up on our own. Hair and makeup was something I was more particular about (as I love Makeup myself!) but my makeup artist, Ana Buitrago, was one of the most flexible people I could have ever worked with. She rose to each challenge I put in front of her, and the result was stunning. Outfits were from Frontier Raas Boutique in Chandigarh, Punjab. They made it so easy for me to choose from their wide array of beautiful gowns!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my Bridal Lengha, I was looking for a circular construction modified mermaid skirt. For colors, I wanted a pop of bright red with gold accents. I was particular about a veil that had lots of embroidery to help highlight my hairstyle, and add to the jewelry I was going to wear.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was seeing how my now husband rose to the occasion. I had helped to plan a lot of my sister's wedding four years ago, and thought that most of the responsibility for planning this wedding would understandably fall onto my shoulders. Instead, Ankit took on a lot of the responsibility of communicating with Vendors and finalizing Contracts which took a lot of stress off of my plate. The way we were able to work together as a team was so wonderful to experience, and it makes me feel really good about us tackling any challenge in the future.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think what my guests really enjoyed was the attention to detail. From our personal touches to the wedding like itineraries for each guest and "Soorya and Ankit's favorite things" goodie bags, to our vendors personal touches like complimentary champagne on check in and unique floral arrangements, I think it was the little things that made the biggest difference at our wedding.

One of the more unique favors we had for each of our guests were white Parasols during the wedding. Since our wedding was an outdoor wedding, our biggest concern was that the May sun would make our guests really hot. We ended up having the opposite, challenge—it began to drizzle during the wedding! The parasols ended up coming in handy for our guests, and were a beautiful accent to a blessed wedding ceremony!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My favorite part about the wedding was our first look. I was initially against doing a first look, as I thought it would take away from the moment I would walk down the aisle. My planner, my sister Arya and Ankit all convinced me that we should do it anyways. However, in my mind, if I was going to do this, then I would do it in my own way. I decided to surprise Ankit by re-enacting the scene in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as Simran leaves Raj on the bridge, but in reverse. As I walked toward him for the first look, I said, "Agar yeh tujhe pyar karta hai...toh palat ke dekhega! Palat! Palat! Palat!" Safe to say, I didn't have to wait long for him to turn and face his new Bride.

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
For the Reception we were trying to make it as tailored to our guests as possible. Details like a longer cocktail hour, a shorter program, our first dance inviting all couples to the dance floor helped to make our guests feel more engaged and to have more fun at this event. The decor was to be classic whites and ivories with gold and blush accents. We had a gorgeous floral wall constructed for our backdrop, which was accented by our beautiful gold cake on top of a bed of roses.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
As a self-proclaimed Type A personality, the biggest piece of advice I can give Brides-To-Be is that a "stress-free" wedding does not exist! People would constantly tell me to "not stress" and "don't worry about it so much," and while that came from a really good place, it definitely wasn't the reality. Accepting the fact that this process is stressful in and of itself made the planning more manageable. As a result, plan a stress-free, relaxing Honeymoon (without much traveling or to-dos) straight after the wedding if you can take the time off. Going away to Greece the day after our wedding was probably the best decision we could have made!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
All of my jewelry was heirloom from my Mother and my Mother-in-law. This was something that was so special and really made both of them feel so happy on my wedding day. My parents originally hail from Kerala, India, and since I did not wear the traditional marriage attire, wearing traditional jewelry from our home was really important for me. Additionally, I was able to incorporate traditional Jasmine flowers in my hairstyle for the wedding. A few of the pieces also belong to my Mother-in-Law. These pieces were the same ones she wore for her own wedding. I think incorporating these sentimental aspects to my wedding attire made it really special for both families.
Mehndi was done by Rehma Khan of HennaInk. Though she was given complete creative license for the design, I was pretty particular about the mehndi being heavy and above the elbows. She was such a sport during the 4 hour appointment! The venue was Lansdowne Resort and Spa and our wedding coordinator was Leslie Eyster. She was such a pleasure to work with and I loved her attention to detail! She probably received hundreds (if not thousands!) of emails from me over the past two years and did not miss a beat! Our cake was done by Classic Bakery and was coordinated by Areen Movessian. He took all of our jumbled up ideas and turned it into a breath-taking creation.
Just wanted to add a few more things— Our DJ was Rishabh Luthra or DJ Rish from the NJ/NY area. We had heard him play at one of our friend’s Sangeets and (being music aficionados as we are) we were dead set on having him at our wedding! Our guests absolutely loved his awesome mixing as well as how easily he understood the crowd and what they wanted. At the end of the night, him and his team compiled a beautiful album of all of our guests Photo Booth pictures and a message inside. This was such a wonderful personal touch and something we will never forget. Our videographer was Rimas Vasiulus of Rimas Films. He was our first choice of wedding videographers and though we almost lost him to another couple who booked earlier, we eventually got him! Kismat! He did a phenomenal job capturing the day for us and made a truly memorable product. Our catering was by Pankaj Sharma of Bollywood Bistro. We garnered a relationship with Mr. Sharma 4 years ago for my sister’s wedding, and using him was a no-brainer for our wedding. For our wedding lunch, we catered food from Mr. Suku Nair of Turmeric Restaurant in McLean, Virginia to give a Kerala touch to the wedding. The food was a traditional Kerala spread which gave our event a unique flair. 

Thank you Soorya! Have a fantastic Father's Day weekend Maharanis. See you Monday!

Atlanta, GA South Asian Wedding by This Modern Love Photography

We were on cloud nine while watching this bubbly, energetic South Asian wedding film by This Modern Love Photography. The celebrations were drenched in hues of pink and pastel, and the joy that infused the events seemed to jump off the screen. The glam wedding took place at the Atlanta Airport Marriott with design by The Events Designer by S.A  and floral and decor by Flower Garlands by Yasmeen. We urge you to hit play and gather decor, entertainment, and fashion inspiration for your own special soiree. Did we mention the massive floral wall that served as a lavish backdrop for the glowing couple? So elegant. Everything in this film was gorgeous, but we were especially taken with Maharani Moazzma’s couture bridal look. Her petal pink lehenga was richly encrusted with pearls and her maang tikka, earrings, and necklace also followed the pearl motif. She looked like a goddess, and we’re sure that Raja Shauhab agreed. Shauhab also looked dapper in an elegant white sherwani, and his baraat looked like an absolutely blast! From the looks of this clip, Moazzma and Shauhab’s wedding extravaganza was a non stop party, filled with glamour and emotional moments. The film by This Modern Love Photography will take you on a sweeping cinematic journey, so hurry and watch all the glam action below!

Have a wonderful Tuesday Maharanis!

Pasadena, CA Wedding by Robles Video Productions

Here at Maharani Weddings, when a film from Robles Video Productions crosses our desk, we know we’re in for a sweeping, cinematic treat! From the very first frame of the edit, we were immersed in Jinal and Rajiv’s beautiful world. Seriously Maharanis, this film is bursting with the most dazzling bridal inspiration, and you should definitely take a gander if you’re in the process of planning your own special day! We were blown away by the couple and their bridal fashions - they were adorned to perfection and were dressed from head to toe in the richest apparel and accessories. Jinal truly resembled an Indian queen in her decadent burgundy lehenga and a cascading maang tikka and necklace. Like everything else about this wedding, Jinals’s hair and makeup by Beauty By NG Nida Gazi was a masterpiece! Maharaja Rajiv’s fashion game was also on point in a lavishly embroidered sherwani! Our breath was taken away when we saw their outdoor ceremony decor. We can honestly say that this is one of our very favorite mandap setups ever! Hats off to Blue Lotus Insights for doing such a fabulous with the planning and design! The Langham venue served as the magnificent backdrop, and is about as close to a SoCal castle that we’ve seen. Check it out if you’re a SoCal bride looking for a fairytale wedding locale! The ambiance was pure whimsy, with delicate yellow floral structures coming together to create the romantic mandap.
