Illinois Wedding by One Media Production

This wedding film by One Media Production contained so many fabulous twists and turns! It began with Maria and Bimal’s glitzy sangeet bash, in which deep fuchsia hues and sparkling golden accents created a sumptuous atmosphere. We were enraptured by Maharani Maria’s sangeet look of a lacy pink blouse paired with a glittering skirt. So gorg! Guests put on their dancing shoes for the sangeet program, and the couple’s nearest and dearest put on a dazzling display of Bollywood talent that was the perfect way to kick start the celebrations! The couple and their guests then shifted gears for the serene ceremony at The Morton Arboretum. As angelic music by harpist Nichole Luchs wafted through the space, elegant Maria made her way down the aisle in her dreamy peach gown. Maria and Bimal’s picture perfect ceremony concluded with the newlyweds bounding outside to their awaiting chariot: an adorable bicycle adorned with flowers and a “Just Married” sign. To celebrate their union, the couple threw a cheerful pink and mint hued reception that made us smile. From the postcard writing station to the artisanal honey wedding favors, the event was bursting with the most creative details that you brides to be should gather inspiration from! The event ended in a swirl of music and dancing, with a euphoric set performed by the DJs at Creative Sounds. Maharanis, hit play to witness all the joy!

Adorable, right? We'll be featuring Maria and Bimal's wedding photos on Maharani Weddings this Friday. Trust us, you don't want to miss them!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

This is one for the books so prepare yourself. April 16th, 2015. I woke up 6am that morning knowing I had to drop my best friend (my matron of honor) to the JFK airport, and the only reason I agreed to do this is because Sandy is literally the only person I would wake up that early for. My Mom and Dad somewhat rushing me out of the house because they didn't want me to be late in picking up Sandy which was odd but I didn't think too much of it. I picked up Sandy with her luggage on our drive to the airport she was texting on her phone the entire time and I asked what was going and she made up some story that she was fighting with her husband to distract me. We pull up curbside to the drop off area, I get out of the car to help her with her luggage and suddenly I feel someone turn me around and it was Mike! He went down on one knee and as he did it, I saw all my parents, his parents family and friends come out through the terminal gate doors all with their phone cameras in their hands and I was in complete shock. He proposed and I literally couldn't speak, and just nodded yes. Sandy handed me her luggage and said this is for you. It wasn't just a proposal but a surprise engagement getaway to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for 3 days. When I left my house that morning Mike and my closest girlfriends when into my house to with my mom to pack some clothes and things I would need for my trip. Here I thought I was just going to work. It was the perfect proposal and I literally had no clue. You know a girl is surprised when her nails aren't done and makeup isn't on. Mike really thought about everything. He got permission from my parents and even called me job and my supervisor to ensure it was okay to whisk me away for couple of days. Aside from our wedding days, it was one of the best moments of my life.

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

The most enjoyable part of our planning was realizing that Mike was not the typical groom but definitely a partner. Planning and vision was definitely a joint effort and gave me an example of how our marriage would be; a true partnership.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

I felt our guests definitely loved all the dance performances but the Hindu wedding and the feeling that they were in actual Bollywood movie at times and really just enjoying themselves at the wedding. Most of our families are still talking about it.

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

Well it was more so two special moments...being carried in my dholi and then being able to walk down the aisle and both times just focusing on Mike seeing how genuinely happy he was... it wasn't just in his smile but you could see it in his eyes as well. I'll never forgot that.

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

Forgot about trying to be "different" and just build a vision that works for both you and your future husband/partner. Once your wedding week begins don't stress when things are perfect but know it always just works itself out. The days go by so quickly so try to take in every moment you can... together.

We can't stop cooing over this darling couple and their beautiful love story! See you tomorrow with another fabulous wedding film!

Buffalo, NY Indian Wedding by KSD Weddings

Maharanis, trust us, you’ll definitely want to watch the wedding film of Priya and Lokesh by KSD Weddings for oodles of mind blowing decor and design inspiration! We are obsessed with so many gorgeous elements found in the video, such as the curved ivory and gold pillars that lined the magnificent ceremony venue of the Adam’s Mark Hotel. Adding to the showstopping effect was the best use of florals we’ve seen in a long time - garlands that were draped like a canopy over the entirety of the aisle by the masterminds at Flowers by Johnny, Timothy Walter, and Fancy Florist. It made for such a dramatic and beautiful walk to the stage for the bride and groom! There was also an intricate mandap set up, which was completely decked out in an elaborate display of white and red florals. The organization wizards at Signature Events were brought in to make sure all details were executed to perfection! Priya and Lokesh were also dressed to perfection, in rich Indian garb that perfectly complemented each other. We especially loved Priya’s glamorous updo which was adorned with a beautiful crystal and gold headpiece! So pretty! The lovebirds were married in a ceremony rife with meaningful traditional elements, and ended with their loved ones tearfully sending the newlyweds off into the sunset! Priya and Lokesh returned with a bang, entering their psychedelic reception soiree! We were so impressed with the event’s cool use of lighting. There were funky designs projected onto their geometric, pure white cake by Signature Events, which created such a dazzling effect! We definitely think all you brides to be should check out the film for some psychedelic inspiration for your own wedding decor! The video ends up the dance floor absolutely packed and rocking out to music by Empire Entertainment - Jiten Khatri. The festivities looked like such a blast from beginning to end! Check out all the joy in the film by KSD Weddings! Also, make sure to scroll below for all the behind the scenes details from Maharani Priya herself!

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

We met through some mutual friends. He moved in with a couple of my guy friends and they hosted a party at their place a couple months later. He was one of the few people there I didn't know. Our friends tried to set us up, and it worked! I knew he was the one after the first time he cooked for me. He had told me he loved to cook, and after that first meal, I was impressed. Now I get his amazing home cooked meals for life!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

We'd been dating for two years and he told me he had a surprise planned for our anniversary. We hopped in the car and drove for what seemed like forever to the middle of nowhere. When we finally got out of the car, I looked around and saw a sign for hot air balloons. I'd hinted in the past that I'd wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride, so I was very excited! I thought that was the whole surprise. But, when we were at the highest point of the ride, he pulled out a box from his pocket. It took me a few seconds to realize what was happening. I looked up at him and he said "I don't have enough room to get down on one knee," looked around the small air balloon basket and looked back at me. And so I just kept staring back at him. After what seemed like way too long, I ended up having to prompt him by asking "so are you going to ask me?" In the end, he did finally manage to pop the question.

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

I was looking for something that was traditional red, but also wanted a hint of blue to match him. My family and I immediately loved the lengha when we first saw it - it was intricate, red and blue, and also subtly incorporated other colors to give it a traditional but slightly different look.

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

The best part of the planning process was food and cake tasting! It was a lot of fun and an easy way to get the whole family involved. Plus, our relationship revolves around food.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Aside from the open bar, I think they enjoyed the overall decor and atmosphere. A lot of our friends told us afterwards how much fun they had, and how surprised they were that things ran on time!

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

I think one of my favorite moments was being carried out of the wedding hall after the ceremony in a doli. All my brothers lifted me up and carried me out. When we were planning the wedding, I initially did not want a doli; it seemed too traditional and outdated. But I'm glad I ended up having it because it was a sweet gesture and actually kind of fun.

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 our reception, we had our flower centerpieces and lighting reflect our shades of purple color scheme.

Our first dance was to ‘Are You WIth Me’ by Lost Frequencies.

We got a surprise performance by my family at the reception; my brother and cousin sang and played the guitar and my whole family got up and joined them on the dance floor. It was completely unexpected and they actually managed to bring me to tears.

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

Don't sweat about the little things! Everything will turn out perfect in the end, and it flies by so remember to have fun! Also, remember to ask some friends to bring you food and drinks throughout the night!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

We loved our wedding cake! It was multi-tiered projected wedding cake, so there were different animations/colors constantly being displayed on our cake. I had randomly seen the idea on Pinterest early into the wedding planning process as a fairytale cake idea and texted the concept to my parents thinking, this would be pretty cool! When we began seriously discussing cake designs months later, I brought up the idea again but it was quickly dismissed by everyone since, how would we even start to figure out the logistics? When we were getting into the homestretch of planning and still hadn't finalized a cake design, I started to get worried. However, my dad and my wedding planner both told me they had something up their sleeves and not to worry about it. I had no idea that they'd actually teamed up with our cake designer and figured out how to make a projection wedding cake work! It was the last thing I was expecting, and everyone did such a good job hiding it from me that the first time I saw the cake design was when I was walking up to cut it at the reception.

Makes you just want to eat a slice of cake and start dancing right? Have a fantastic day Maharanis!

NY Indian Wedding by MaxPhoto NY

Anu and Shawn first met when Anu was visiting prospective colleges with her parents and bumped into Shawn. Both of them ended up studying at Iona College, and ironically Shawn, as a college student, started working part time for Anu's mom. Shawn not only won Anu’s heart but he charmed his way into all of her family members’ hearts! According to Anu, "He's the reason I'm always smiling, even when I don't feel like it. To me, he's perfection and makes my world feel that way too!" Likewise, Shawn stated, “Anu to me, is the definition of selfless, loving, and giving. She has become not only the reason and motivation in my life, but the strength and support I need in everything that I do.” So precious! These so in love twosome had the fairytale wedding that their relationship deserved at the gardens of Untermyer Park. In the sweeping cinematic edit by MaxPhoto NY, we were awestruck by the surroundings. It’s hard to believe such a beautiful place exists. It truly looked like something out of a dream! Beautiful Maharani Anu’s bridal look perfectly suited the fresh surroundings with dewy makeup and hair by Maliha Khan, ornate mehndi by Henna for All, and a stunning petal pink Sabyasachi lehenga purchased from Chandan Fashion. Meanwhile, handsome Raja Shawn engaged in an epic baraat in which a professional bhangra dancers led the charge. The couple’s families met in the beautiful courtyards of Untermyer Park which featured impeccably curated foliage and landscaping, winding stone paths, and glittering ponds. Seriously, we challenge you to find a more beautiful place to be married! We can’t wait to see more photos and video of Anu and Shawn's wedding events by MaxPhoto NY at Castle Royale and Cornucopia Cruise Lines! Watch all the magic below!

So much beauty! We'll be here same place, same time tomorrow with another gorgeous film!
