San Francisco, CA Sikh Wedding by White Rose Production

Oh my goodness, this NorCal wedding film by White Rose Production is an absolute cinematic marvel. The shots, the action, and the energy captured in the clip electrifies us! Also, the fashions in the video are so lux. Maharani Amrit was a goddess in a delicate petal pink lehenga by Frontier Raas and perfectly applied henna by Mehndi By Kamal. Beauty gurus from Lilly’s Beauty World whipped up a sensational hair and makeup look for the bride, which included rosy cheeks, shimmering eyes, and a polished updo. She glowed from every angle. And while we usually don’t covet the groom’s outfit, Alex’s pearl encrusted sherwani was an exception! Such a gorgeous, fashion forward couple. The duo’s love for each shined brightly during their ceremony at the Sikh Institute of Fresno, and the film captured their admiration for each other so vividly. Next, we were invited into their reception at the historic San Francisco City Hall. The ornate venue was completely decked out in sophisticated decor and green touches by To Have & To Hold Florals, with planning and design overseen by Sky Weddings and Events. The video ends on an emotional note as the couple departs the hall, ready to embark on their grand adventures as husband and wife. Maharanis, we promise that you don’t want to miss this dazzling clip. Hurry and hit play to experience all the magic!

Breathtaking, right Maharanis? We'll be back tomorrow morning with another inspiring wedding film!

Orlando, FL Indian Wedding by Pacific Pictures

There are so many features of Isha and  Yasha’s wedding celebration that I cannot simply pick a favorite! The venue of Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center for starters is one of my favorite quarters to house an Indian wedding celebration. Some of my favorite features of the venue are the winding waterways and lush gardens reminiscent of the Everglades and Key West. When you pair the gorgeous venue with the artistic touch of Occasions by Shangri-la, the results are undeniably beautiful. The pre ceremony events began with the sangeet night where guests enjoyed loving speeches and dancing under twinkling lights from colorful lanterns. The Coquina Lawn was bathed in such luxurious details! The bride and groom wed in both a Hindu and Parsi wedding ceremony inside Gaylord’s sprawling atrium. I have to stand my ground with this one - I am absolutely in love with the garden mandap perched in the gardens of Gaylord Palms Resort and undeniably my favorite of 2017. Isha, glammed up by Style by Susmita, was comparable to a Rajasthani Princess in a red and gold studded bridal lengha. The celebrations ended with a lavish candlelit reception in the Sun Ballroom that was full of heartfelt speeches, special dances and an energized dance floor. Our Labor of Love captured all the still action and we cannot wait to showcase the feature! Every pretty moment of this whimsical Indian wedding by Pacific Pictures can be found simply by hitting play.

We hoped you enjoyed this gorgeous wedding! Stay tuned tomorrow as we unveil yet another enchanting love tale.

California Sikh Wedding by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema

We love it when the bride and groom’s families band together to pull of the wedding celebration as a team. Sukhvinder and Pavan’s families certainly worked in unison throughout the planning process. We were especially touched to hear that Maharani Sukhvinder’s right hand woman was her future sister in law! This family oriented lovebirds go way back. In fact, their fathers are best friends. Their romantic paths finally crossed at a family party, where they had a blast chatting and dancing with each other. On the couple’s first date, Sukhvinder knew Pavan was the one. He brought her 3 dozen long stemmed roses and the night was pure magic. To this day, the wallpaper on Sukhvinder’s phone is a photo of those roses to remind her of the night she knew Pavan was the one. Too cute! This emotional wedding film by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema will take you on such a sweeping adventure through this couple’s relationship. It doesn’t hurt that every frame is embellished with decor details by Floramor and planning efforts by Touch of Elegance Events. Sukhvinder stunned her groom in a regal navy and red lehenga custom designed by Sari Palace accompanied by bombshell hair and makeup. We recently featured their wedding photos by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema on our site, and you can click here to read our coverage.  We've also arranged all the photos in the gallery. Make sure to scroll below for all the behind the scenes deets from the bride herself - Trust us, this is a celebration you’ll want all the inside scoop on!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We have known each other practically all of our lives. Our fathers were best friends; as a result our families knew each other really well. We never got together earlier as our romantic paths never crossed. We were both in other relationships and never looked at each other that way. Pavan was invited to our family party, that is when we first started to see each other as more than just family friends. We had such a great time at the party hanging out, dancing, etc.
I knew he was the one on our first date. He brought these 3 dozen long stem roses (which are still the picture when he calls my phone - to remind me of the day when I just knew he was the one). We went out to dinner and then dancing and the whole night was just simply put magical! I knew that day that this is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. I was immediately smitten with him and fall more in love with him as each day passes.

Pavan and his family surprised me at my parent's house. Everyone came over with sweets and he asked my dad for my hand in marriage... I was just sitting there shocked that this was happening! Then he turns around and gets on one knee in front of everyone and asks me to marry him. It was the best way he could have asked me... with the most important people in our lives there.

We got engaged in Dec 2016 and were trying to decide on a date for the wedding. Our lifeline and savior was my sister-in-law! She to put it in words was simply the most AMAZING assistance we could ever ask for. She found our venue, helped interview wedding planners, and make the most gorgeous and memorable day in our lives happen in less than month in half. Her amazing eye for detail and overall understanding our vision just made everything so easy. It goes to show you when it comes to wedding planning getting some help from family will help to relieve stress and make the whole process seamless. I felt bad at times because she took the stress and responsibility of planning everything the T.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I am the one bride that didn't want to plan my wedding... I know most brides look forward to that but i knew the stress and esp since we were doing it month and half after being engaged that I was not ready to take on the stress. So the best part was not planning it and having my most trustworthy family member do it for us. Truly grateful and thankful because if it wasn't for her.. we wouldn't have the most memorable event we could ever wish for with all the details planned to the T.

We hope you have a spectacular weekend Maharanis! See you all on Monday!

Houston, TX Wedding by Epique Cinema

It is only natural to be swept off your feet after your future prince charming aptly asks you, “Hey Cinderella, did you lose your shoes?” after you take off your heels to hit the dance floor. This was just the beginning of Maharani Rachita and Sameer’s fairy tale. The couple put a lot of thought and precision detail into their series of events with the help of a dream team vendor list. Elaan Events led the charge for the planning and design of the series of events. When it came to decor, there was no better design team than Decor One. The stellar team envisioned a mystical mandap that was full of Indian charm and fresh, colorful blooms. Guests were struck with wonder and we can certainly see why! The elegant and timeless reception party was brimming with elegant ambiance and with DJ Riz Entertainment handling all the lighting and sound, guests were kept entertained on the dance floor. Epique Cinema captured all the live action with so much wedding inspiration, we must urge you to hit play immediately! If you are still reeling from this wedding, check out our very special feature snapped by Vek Photo that you can find here!


Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Sameer planned an incredible centered around our time in Austin and my passion for architecture and design. He rented a beautiful house overlooking the hill country. I had thought we were celebrating a good friend's birthday that weekend, and we were all sharing a house together.

When I arrived to the house, Sameer surprised me and took me on a "house tour" where each room represented a different memory we shared. The living room had our friend's reenacting our first time meeting at the South Asian award banquet. The kitchen replayed out first emails we sent to each other (Sameer even printed the original emails on a giant foam board!). The dining room was set up as the day he asked me out in a small Italian restaurant in Austin.

Finally, Sameer took me upstairs to the balcony overlooking the hills where he proposed to me. When I came down the stairs, his parents and my parents came out and surprised me! It was a magical evening, and something I will never forget.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests particularly enjoyed the field day we hosted the day before the wedding with our family and closest friends. We played various field games such as tug of war, three legged race, and various creative competitions such as twerking dance offs. It was a blast! It helped break the ice for a lot of our guests who had never meet each other because 80% of our families don't live in the same state, let alone the same country as we do.

Thank you for joining us today Maharanis! See you tomorrow.

Long Beach, CA Indian Wedding by Aaroneye Photography

Nirali and Ajay’s wedding film by Aaroneye Photography is pure magic! Set under the glorious California sunshine of Long Beach, this cinematic delight will make you forget all your worries! The celebrations kicked off with a spirited sangeet at Amaya, where guests left their inhibitions at home and showed off their most creative dance moves for Nirali and Ajay. Next was the main event, an outdoor Hindu ceremony at the The Westin Long Beach. The space was airy and fresh, and decorated expertly by the planning, design, and floral/decor aficionados at BEL Event Productions. The mandap was draped in gauzy coral fabrics and tropical florals, creating such a refreshing ambiance! Ajay’s bharat kicked off in front of the hotel, and guests had the time of their life rocking out to the dhol from Fusion Sounds. Factor in the sunshine and windswept palm trees surrounding the commotion, and it made for one unforgettable baraat! Meanwhile, the main attraction, Maharani Nirali, was busy preparing herself for her much anticipated walk down the aisle. She was a vision in an apple red lehenga and glowing hair and makeup by Nida Gazi, and Ajay couldn’t tear his eyes away from her as she made her way to his side. After the effervescent ceremony, the giddy couple was thrilled to finally be pronounced husband and wife! They, and their guests were ready to party for their decadent reception, which took place inside The Westin Long Beach. The lux decor and florals by BEL Event Productions and lighting and music by Fusion Sounds helped add to the mood of utter joy inside the space. Hit play to revel in all the love, dancing, and sparkles of this reception extravaganza. What a fantastic weekend!

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

My husband and I met on Coffee Meets Bagel and we thought it was appropriate to have our first date at Portola Coffee lab because we both love coffee and second because of the name of the dating app, obviously. I can't recall an exact ahh ha moment where I knew he was the one. But I think the fact that we lived far away from each other and somehow still managed to see each other 3-4 times a week was clearly a good sign. On our third date I feel like I had a good feeling about him mainly because we went mini golfing and we bet watching a Bollywood movie (mind you he is not a fan of Bollywood movies whatsoever). He ended up losing and on our 4th date he stayed awake through a full 3 hour Bollywood movie. He was a keeper from then on...

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

AJ (my husband) came up with all sorts of stories to get me to a park in Irvine where he beautifully decorated a gazebo at sunset which overlooked the lake. For some reason I just wouldn't go to the park. So he finally told me that his car broke down and asked if I could come by. My response was "you have an electric car...plug it in!" Finally I made it to the park and it was just so beautifully set up. He had made a book and we read it together and he proposed at the end of the book. The ring was gorgeous he had designed it from my three favorites. I love my ring because it was created by my husband and unique to us. Luckily there was a photographer there to capture our special moment. The next day we met with both set of parents for lunch. And when I thought the surprises ended he surprised me again with an endgame by party with our friends and family. Definitely a weekend we both will never forget.

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 honestly didn't know where to get started with wedding planning. After we got an average headcount from both sides we started venue hunting. Luckily in this process we met with Atrina and Morgan from BEL and they were amazing. We did some research and talked to a lot of friends getting married and came up with an amazing vendor list. We loved al of our vendors and really appreciated how calm and collected they each were which made a huge difference in our special day. I loved my hair and makeup for all the events by Nida Gazi. We just finished our final proofs with Greycard photography and just watched our wedding video by Aaroneye. Our reception was catered by Jay Bharat and our Sangeet was at Amaya. One thing that really stood out to us was instead of telling each of our vendors exactly what we wanted and how it needed to be done, we went into each vendor meeting trusting the vendor to do their best with no specific dos and don'ts and no specific rules and we loved the product!! Our wedding day was exactly what we wanted and truly specialized for us as a couple.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

We went to 11 weddings last year, including our own, but there were a few things our friends and family still tell us they loved about wedding. My husband and I used to go every Tuesday for taco Tuesday at a different locations in OC/LA. So we wanted to incorporate tacos into our wedding. BEL helped us bring our vision to life. We hired a person to dress in an ice cream man outfit with a ice cream cart handing out Choco Tacos( my two favorite things chocolate and tacos :)) the guest loved the uniqueness and the simplicity. And we loved that it was totally US.

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

I'm not going to say don't stress because c'mon every girl is going to stress. In hindsight I would say that make your wedding special to you and your husband so that you guys remember what made you laugh and smile that day. Also, I would say trust your vendors they are experts in their industry and they wish to give you a special day.

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

My mehndi was done by Masu Patel and she was amazing. She is so young and her work is just impeccable.

I designed my wedding lengha at Dream Collection. I used a lot of inspiration from Pinterest. It was definitely an amazing dress that created many memories for my mom and I while we were designing.

So amazing right Maharanis? See you all tomorrow morning with another lovely film!
