Parsippany, NJ Indian Wedding by Studio Nine Photography

Maharanis, we have an adorable video by Studio Nine Photography to share with you today! Juvie and Kushal were married in an absolutely stunning New Jersey ceremony at the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel and we have a behind-the-scenes clip highlighting the cute couple! In the video, you can witness the lovebirds wandering their favorite NYC/NJ haunts. The short film features picturesque locations and magical cinematography, and we adore the idea of creating a preview trailer that naturally captures the couple in some of their most beloved places. Since weddings can be hectic, we believe relaxed footage taken outside of the formal functions in locales that have sentimental, private meaning for a couple, is very special. We are sure this trailer will be enjoyed by the couple and their loved ones for years to come! We've featured Juvie and Kushal's wedding photos by Studio Nine Photography recently, and you can check out more breathtaking details and photos from their wedding here. All you brides-to-be will definitely want to take a peek, since Juvie and Kushal's wedding features the most beautifully lush decor by Rangoli Weddings, world-class entertainment by DJ Raj Entertainment, and stellar makeup/hair/styling by Ayesha Khan. Check out the trailer below and you can read more detail from Juvie herself if you scroll down!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Kush and I met January of 2011; I was living in Brooklyn, as I was finishing up my degree. Kush was living in Pennsylvania finishing up his master's degree, and was commuting back and forth into Jersey. Soon after we met, I graduated and moved back to Massachusetts, and Kush moved back home to New Jersey. Within our years of dating, I often traveled to New Jersey on my weekends off, and he traveled to Massachusetts. We made sure we maintained our tradition of yearly vacations. After three and a half years of dating we decided that our travel destination that year would be Mexico!

Kush already had an idea of how he wanted to propose to me. After months of me being my usual indecisive, picky self, I finally picked a ring! On September 5th, 2014, he popped the question on a rooftop in New York City. What started off as what I thought was a casual girls day out turned out to be the biggest surprise of my life! After the proposal, to make the day more memorable, he surprised me by inviting my parents and brother from Massachusetts to join us and his family for a celebratory dinner.

After the dinner, Kush presented me an iPad with a video compilation of all our family and friends congratulating us in advance. The icing on the cake was definitely clips of my grandparents and family from London. After the dinner, we concluded our perfect day by celebrating all night with family and friends in NYC. Finally, the next day, we caught a flight to Mexico as we celebrated our first vacation as an engaged couple!

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.

Like every other girl, I had my dream wedding planned out in my head before I got engaged. I knew exactly what I wanted and that is exactly how I went along with it. Picking a venue was the hardest to us, as I initially wanted the wedding to be in Boston. After months of visiting different sites, we had a wedding to attend at The Sheraton Parsippany and we instantly fell in love with it. We actually ended up meeting the director during the wedding lunch break, and booking a few days later. We picked our vendors from many weddings we had attended prior to ours which made things a lot easier. We both had a vision and went along with it.

So fun to hear the behind-the-scenes details from Juvie! And their proposal was too adorable - Props to Kush for pulling off such a great surprise! Have a great weekend everyone!

Woodland Hills, California Indian Wedding by Robles Video Productions

Today’s wedding film celebrates Rishma and Varun and after hearing the enchanting story of how the bride and groom met, it is no wonder that Rishma fell head over heels with her Maharaja. It doesn’t hurt either with Varun’s medical background with an emphasis in animal care to really get a girl all starry eyed. This enchanting film will leave you believing in love over and over again! Maharani Rishma was dolled up by none other than Nida Gazi of Beauty By NG. With glowing skin, perfect pink lip gloss, and a sophisticated updo with a perfectly placed silver gold tikka; this makeup artist flawlessly executed this bridal look for the big day. Varun made a grand entrance perched atop a majestic horse. One of the most treasured moments of the wedding event was undoubtedly the bride and groom’s first look. The tear that formed in Varun’s eyes as he took in his lovely bride left us in tears just as much. The Marriott Warner Center Woodland Hills was the premier location both the wedding and reception and for the wedding day Floral Passion transformed the venue into a floral and fauna haven. Large blooms of peach and white florals lined the petal scattered pathway leading to a stark white mandap draped with fresh flowers. The wedding reception was an ultra classy affair with romantic blooms becoming the theme of the grand celebration. Rishma slipped into a gorgeous orange lengha ensemble that just glistened as she danced the night away. The night was full of dance performances, laughter, and the immeasurable memories captured by Robles Video Productions. So Cal Event Planners spearheaded planning and design with Dina Douglass capturing all the still action. Hit play and relive this night celebrating this coveted couple!


 

Another day, another Indian wedding celebration! See you all tomorrow!

Kirkland, WA Indian Wedding by Aaron Horton Productions

Our wedding film today comes from the emerald state of Washington and was created by Aaron Horton Productions. The waterfront wedding locales at the Woodmark Hotel were a photographer's dream, and all stills were captured by Victor Zerga Photography. The natural surroundings were perfect for the couple's portraits, and the watercolor sky at sunset combined with the couple's vibrant ensembles and smiles made for some classic photographs. Maharani Vidya was decked out in mehndi by Eela, hair and makeup by Hanna Mazur, and her bridal fashions came all the way from India and London. Her traditional yet elegant ceremony sari was selected by her aunt in India, and her deep green and blue lehenga was a custom design from Charmi Creations in London. We thought her reception outfit was the perfect choice to match the vibrant blue water and sky that surrounded the festivities. Nalini's Flowers and Decor decorated the event elegantly, with gorgeous florals and draping that complemented the natural, chic surroundings perfectly, while Manette Gracie Events was in charge of the wedding planning and coordination. Adding to the fun was delicious food by Lakshmi, an enormous tiered cake by Decadence Custom Cakes, and incredible music by DJ Aanshul. It was many of Vidya & Kavi's guests' first time at an Indian wedding, and they were thrilled by the dancing, colors, and traditions swirling through the entire weekend. We're so happy to witness this lovely couple's wedding and please click play to watch more! Also, we talked to Maharani Vidya to get some inside scoop on the wedding celebrations, so you can read more from her below!

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

We had an interesting first date - a few jokes and stories. We saw promise and scheduled a second date. That's when we knew we had something special. The rest is history!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Kavi was sweet and traditional at the same time. I flew to Seattle to be with my family the day before Thanksgiving, and he joined us on Thanksgiving Day. He was talking to my Dad and asked his permission to marry me right in front of me! My whole family was so overjoyed to be part of such a special moment.

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 had a lot of help with planning! Once the venue and date were set, the rest fell right into place. We wanted an elegant but relaxed feel. We couldn't have asked for a better location - waterfront and gorgeous. We decided on royal blue and gold for our reception. Once I chose my reception lehnga, my Mom and Nalini, our florist, chose the perfect table arrangements to complement it, complete with elephant centerpieces!

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

My wedding sari was selected in India by my aunt. It was classic and clean. I didn't have time to travel to India to choose my lehnga. After extensively searching online, I decided to have a bespoke lehnga made by Charmi Creations in London. The process was streamlined and the fit was flawless.

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

Kavi and I had a great time working on the invitations. The excitement of our engagement was still fresh and we had a ball looking at different samples. We also had a fun time putting our favors together. I'm a coffee girl and he's a tea guy, so we chose to combine those two into a simple and fragrant favor!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

The location! We got so many positive comments. So many of our friends had never attended a Hindu wedding, so the combination of its beauty and the beautiful venue made for a wonderful event!

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

There were so many special moments in our wedding! I think the most special moment was walking up to the Mandap and seeing my parents, family, and friends all around me and all smiles - it was an amazing feeling.

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

Enjoy the process! Details are fun and important, but they're not everything. Enjoying yourself, savoring the moment, and smiling is even more important.

So great to hear about Vidya's great experience! We'll see you all tomorrow!

Cancun, Mexico Indian Wedding by Sarani Photography

Today’s cinematic journey hails all the way from Cancun, Mexico celebrating Maharani Avani and Siddharth. This big fat Indian bash was one that had to be relished in all of its true art forms and we are so excited to share this visual treat with you all. As we all know, destination weddings are a celebration and vacation all in one; tucked away in locations and venues as far as our mascara batting eyes can see. The pristine beaches overlooking the pristine waters only heightened the cultural experience of Avani’s wedding. Yanet Zavala helped plan and design the series of events and helped secure a local mehndi artist, Veronica de la Paz, who bestowed the bride in the most gorgeous henna designs. Glam squad Styling Trio ensured that the bride looked picture perfect for photographer Sarani Photography who took the most picturesque of memories that you can find here. The series of events included a family fun sangeet hosted at the Lake Terrace area of the Moon Palace and a gorgeous beach side wedding with a floral mandap created by Latin Asia. Of course, no great event would complete without the euphoric sounds of Bollywood beats and M4U Events brought the Indian spice by leading both the baraat and the series of party events, concluding with the reception. So, if you are feeling extra spicy today, hit play and relish in all the fine details a destination wedding can offer filmed by Sarani Photography! P.S. - make sure you check out our intimate conversation with the bride down below! 

 

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

Siddharth and I met online! We were in a long distance relationship and after about 6 months of dating, I knew he was the one when I started telling him "I love you" silently, to myself, before hanging up the phone during one of our long calls.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Sid actually didn't propose until 2 weeks before our wedding, talk about waiting until the last minute possible!! We went out to dinner to celebrate my birthday, and came home like it was a regular night. He lived with his parents at the time, and had come over to our new apartment to spend the evening with me (I moved from Ohio to New Jersey, so we went house hunting together for our place post marriage, which I moved into a few months early). As it got later, he was acting strange and pacing from room to room. At one point he was talking about how I should keep the shades up so I could see the moon and stars. As I was listening to him, I started falling asleep and he tapped me on the shoulder to show me something. I was surprised to find him on one knee, holding a beautiful ring, asking if I would spend the rest of my life with him. I started crying and of course said YES!

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.

We started toying with the idea of a destination wedding after we realized how long our parent's guest lists actually were! Both of us wanted a small, intimate wedding so that is what we convinced our families to support. I saw a posting on Facebook, a friend of a friend, who is a travel agent and thought why not explore the idea? One thing led to another, and we ended up selecting Moon Palace Resorts as the venue for our wedding. We actually wanted it at one of their sister properties, but they could not accommodate our group size for the weekend. However, they were gracious enough to host our wedding on the beach of our choice. All of the planners at Moon Palace were super helpful, along with all of the vendors that we worked with, ranging from the chefs at the resort to photo, décor, and hair and makeup. There was no question left unanswered, and ultimately we ended up with our dream wedding!

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

After hours and hours of shopping in Ahmedabad, I was so exhausted when I found THE lengha! As the saying goes, it's always in the last place you look. I wanted to keep with a traditional color story, and also wanted to maintain the balance between formal and informal. Granted we were getting married on a beach, but I still wanted to keep the essence of a traditional wedding .

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

We rented a boat to take all our guests out for an afternoon, it was a nice way for everyone to get off the resort and be able to spend time together in the middle of all the wedding events.

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

My father passed away, so it was important for him to still feel his presence. At the end of the wedding, Sid and I stood up to take blessings from our parents, and he kneeled with me in front of the picture of my father, to ask him for his blessing as we start out life together. Feeling his presence, despite his absence, is something that will always stay with me. Another moment I think about happened during our reception. A close friend from college ended her speech with "May you look back and remember today as the day you loved each other the least" - I think of her words often, and they have become my wish every day for us and our relationship.

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

They always say, don't sweat the small stuff. As a bride, it's not very practical advice because every detail seems crucial.. but honestly, when you are in the moment enjoying one of the biggest milestones of your life with your closest loved ones, no one will notice if the favors aren't set perfectly. Their only focus will be you and the happiness that radiates from you and your groom.

Click here to read all three features of this event! Stay tuned as we unveil our coveted E-Magazine that will be digitally publicized soon! See you tomorrow.
