Riviera Maya Destination Indian Wedding by Mike Cantarell Films

We can't get enough of sunny destination weddings these days, especially with frigid temps hitting various parts of the country! This ethereal gem of a film by Mike Cantarell Films features Crystal and Sachin's marriage celebrations in Riviera Maya. From the initial moments of the video, we were transported to a tropical paradise, with magnificent shots of crashing blue waves and sunsets, and Mike Cantarell Films' amazing aerial cinematography capturing all the excitement! The festivities took place at the gorgeous Hard Rock Riviera Maya and kicked off with welcome drinks at the venue's Solarium Terrace. Guests had such a fantastic time taking in the surroundings and mingling with the couple and the other guests! We are huge fans of pre-wedding mixers since guests can let loose and get to know other attendees, making the atmosphere at the ceremony and reception events so much more relaxed and enjoyable! The next morning began with the baraat ceremony, which was held beach side with dapper Sachin leading the crowd to the oceanfront mandap on a regal horse-drawn carriage. The ceremony couldn't have been more beautiful, with Maharani Crystal looking radiant in a green and red lehenga that contrasted beautifully against the ocean backdrop. The couple's euphoric reception was one for the books, featuring fire dancers, paint drummers, and acrobats. Check out all the incredible action in the video below!

We feel relaxed and rejuvenated after that wedding film! We'll see you tomorrow Maharanis!

CA Sikh Wedding by Robles Video Productions

We're reveling in this gorgeous wedding film by Robles Video Productions featuring beautifully sweeping shots, cinematic edits, and the inclusion of the most special details. The film begins with the stunning couple getting ready for their royal affair. Lucky, a total fashionista, adorned herself in impeccably curated accessories, including glittering jewelry, a delicate maang tikka, and the most covetable Christian Louboutins ever. She embodied the perfect bride from her perfectly done makeup and hair by the always impeccable Dolled up by Lulu, to the top of her perfectly manicured nails. We also love that she chose the atypical color combo of blue and red-orange (which matched handsome Jasveen's sherwani perfectly!) for her special day. Seriously, all you brides-to-be need to watch this video to take bridal inspiration from Lucky's perfect look! The baraat outside the Riverside Gurdwara looked incredible joyful, and the couple's guests definitely have some smooth moves! Their traditional ceremony honored the couple's Sikh heritage, and featured sounds by Sandeep Kumar, decor by Carla Flores, and coordination by Lisa Simpson. We can't wait to see the photographs captured by Frank Salas PhotographyHere at Maharani weddings, we've seen couples depart their ceremony by many creative modes of transportation  - However most types of transport remain firmly on the ground. Lucky and Jasveen instead departed their ceremony in the most lavish of ways - by air in a helicopter - to meet their guests at the Temecula Winery, followed the next day with their reception at the Hilton San Diego BayFront. Watch the video below for more magnificence from Lucky and Jasveen's extravagant festivities!

Excuse us while we go watch that film again! See you on Monday Maharanis!

Austin, TX Indian Wedding by Epique Cinema

Hi Maharanis! Yesterday, we shared photographs by Joey T Photography of Nikita & Rohan's Texan wedding, and we're so pumped to share their wedding film by Epique Cinema today! This film takes us on such a wild ride, and could hold up to your favorite Bollywood flick, featuring a gorgeous couple, sparkling fashions, and colorful dance numbers. We were touched to find out that so many of Nikita and Rohan's family and friends flew in from all over the world, including 20 family members from India who had never been to the United States before! So sweet! Nikita and Rohan put together an all-star team to execute their wedding vision, including K.I. Weddings, who always come out in force for all wedding planning duties, and the visionaries at Prashe Decor, whose design concepts continue to astound us! The sangeet, ceremony, and reception events took place Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort & Spa, and featured delectable meals by Bombay Bistro, and non-stop music by DJ Prashant Poudyal. Nikita was decked out in hair and makeup by The Infinite Perfection and intricate henna by Nisha, and she glowed in every frame of this film! This couple and their family and friends are incredible dancers, and kept the party going past 1 am - Everyone looked like they were having a blast! Maharani Nikita fills us in on more details from her celebrations below, and you can also watch the video below to see more from these rocking festivities. And make sure to check out the full gallery to see more colorful moments! 

Description of the Day from the Bride:

Our wedding week was AMAZING! I was kept happy and calm by my family, especially my younger sister and best maid of honor ever! We had friends and family fly in from Texas, Utah, Alabama, Florida, New Jersey, Washington, and about 20 family members who came all the way from India for the first time! Every event was carried out beautifully and my husband and I felt so much unconditional love. I was very nervous for our first look as my then fiancé and I were kept away from each other all day. As soon as I started walking up to him from behind, I immediately started tearing up at the relief of seeing him standing there. My husband always makes me feel so loved and secure, and seeing him made me feel that way just minutes before our wedding. We had so many friends and family give special performances and speeches during the wedding week. In particular, our wedding party of siblings, best friends, and roommates put on a wedding dance performance that highlighted our 6-year relationship. They practiced for weeks before the big finale and I still watch videos of the dance till today! I would go back and do the whole wedding week over again because of how special it was and what a great time we had planning it with our AMAZING vendors.

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

I met my husband Rohan when we were both 19 years old at the University of Texas at Austin (hook 'em)! We happened to meet through a mutual friend and once we started to talk, found out that we were both Marathi. We spent some time together the summer of 2010 and by the time classes started, were officially dating. I knew Rohan was the one when he told his mom about me a few months into dating. Instead of feeling nervous at the possibility of meeting his parents, I felt excited for that next step in our relationship and what else was to come!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Just shy of our 5 year anniversary, Rohan and I took a July 4th trip to Destin, Florida. He was living in New Orleans at the time so we drove the 3-4 hours to Destin. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun at the beach. Rohan had made reservations at a beach restaurant but when we reached, he went in alone and told me that our table wouldn't be ready for another 10 minutes and we should take a walk on the beach. Looking back, it's funny that he even decided to propose to me, because I was so cranky and hungry and wanted to talk to the hostess myself - poor Rohan had to make so many excuses so I would just take the hint and walk on the beach with him! Rohan had a photographer waiting when he got down on one knee and we have the most amazing memories and pictures from that moment. I was so stunned at the moment that Rohan still reminds me till today that the first words out of my mouth after he proposed were "Are you serious or joking...is this really happening?" Haha!

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

Both our families are Marathi so I knew that my bridal sari would be a traditional silk Marathi one (turmeric yellow with green glass bangles). I knew this was also very important to my mother so we definitely connected over shopping for my sari and choosing colors/patterns. I wanted a color that would pop with the turmeric yellow color as well as match my bridesmaids beautiful skin tones, so I chose fuchsia. It looked beautiful on every girl as well as against the yellow of my sari!

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

When Rohan and I had our first look, I did not expect us to get emotional. The anticipation of being apart that whole morning all leading up to the wedding ceremony was making me so nervous. As I walked up to Rohan from behind, I started tearing up from relief that I could finally see him - he is the one who keeps me calm, cool and collected in all aspects of my life. Rohan also mentioned he was getting emotional seeing me decked up as a traditional bride. I think it's one of those memories that I did not anticipate, but smile when I think about every time.

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 sangeet, Rohan and I wanted pops of color wherever you looked! We wanted the traditional Sangeet décor with bright shades of fushia, orange, and pink. We also wanted there to be personalized touches so we had 2 specialty drinks made. A "Niki-rita" (strawberry margarita) and a "Hur-Ro-cane" (a classic rum drink famous in New Orleans as Rohan had lived there for the past 2 years). Since there was going to be indian food the following day for wedding and reception, we also wanted to showcase classic "Tex Mex" food for all our visiting friends and family. We had the Hyatt resort prepare classic Tex Mex dishes (chips/salsa/queso, shrimp fajitas, spinach enchiladas, plus deconstructed tres leches and churros with nutella sauce for dessert!) We had amazing performances from 10 of his mom's best friends, my childhood group from Round Rock, and his 20 (!) childhood friends...some who have never danced before! This event made us feel SO loved that people put in all the time to give us such great performances!

We loved hearing Nikita's behind-the-scenes stories! See you all tomorrow!

San Tan Valley, Arizona Indian Wedding by Sameer Soorma Studios

Dear Maharanis, we have a sumptuous sneak peek wedding film for you today, coming from San Tan Valley, Arizona and created by the incredible talents at Sameer Soorma Studios. The ceremony took place at Encanterra Weddings, and the outdoor grounds of the venue created such a picturesque backdrop to showcase the lovely bride and groom and was the perfect place for them to experience their magical first look. Stunning Maharani Sarika was a knockout in her deep pink and white lehenga with perfectly done hair and makeup by Ahseia Adina. The clip of her running through the venue's stone halls with her lehenga billowing gracefully around her was breathtaking! Tru Elegance, LLC planned the wedding to perfection with floral and decor by Wendell Florist. We can't wait to see the photographs by the incredible Ushna Khan Photography for more inspiration from this lavish affair! Though this wedding focuses on the pre-ceremony rituals, Sarika and Nimish had numerous wedding events, including a sangeet at the Indo American Cultural Center and a reception at the DoubleTree Hilton. Throughout the events, DJ Issac kept the party going with electrifying lighting and music. Click play below to be swept up in this romantic, beautiful wedding!
