Houston, TX Indian Wedding by Aventography

We can’t stop smiling after watching Nusrat and Daniel’s colorful wedding festivities filled with glitz and glamour at every turn. The weekend was bursting with some of the most elaborate flower power we’ve ever seen! Nusrat and Daniel’s wedding party entered through a swoon worthy floral arch and we're loving how every inch of the reception stage was accessorized with tropical blooms. The ceremony space was further beautified by Dream Decors, who added shimmering and bold decor that transformed the venue into a dream come true for Nusrat. Keeping up with the glittering wedding theme, the bride donned a treasure trove of ornate, fully embroidered gowns bedazzled with topaz stones and dabka work. Maharani Nusrat truly sparkled from every angle. Nothing sparkled brighter than the newlyweds’ love however, and the gorg duo were radiant as they vowed to love each other forever and cut their majestic six tiered cake by Cakes by Gina. The venue was lit in smoldering gold hues by Dream Decors, while DJ Tariq churned out all the infectious beats that kept loved ones grooving on the dance floor all night long. Bask in all the beauty while enjoying the stunning wedding film by Aventography. And make sure to scroll below for the behind the scenes details from Maharani Nusrat!

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

Daniel and I met at an Eid party, the day before he left for law school in Austin. We stayed in touch online, but it wasn't until he invited me to his law school prom that we started to develop feelings. We began a long distance relationship for the next few years, and I knew he was "the one" since we didn't let a 3-hour drive stop us from nurturing and growing our love. Long distance relationships are tough, but knowing that you have someone so special waiting for you and supporting you makes it all worth it.

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

I knew that I wanted to wear a red lehenga for my shaadi, but it was my gaye holud outfit that took me by surprise. I chose to wear a sari to stay close to my Bengali roots. I also knew I didn't want to look like the traditional bride on her holud day. We found this beautiful multicolored sari, and I was in love! The burnt orange, olive green, and jewel toned purple dazzled brilliantly in our gaye holud outfits.

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

The most enjoyable part of the process was spending time with my mom and planning out everything together. It brought us much closer together. I was able to see how everything was so meaningful and precious to her, and since I am the first and only daughter on her side of the family, it made this wedding very special for my family.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

My guests really enjoyed the wedding decorations and the stage setup. I did not want any draping, and one of my guests even said she had never seen anything like my stage before. Dream Decors set up the perfect ambiance and truly made me feel like I stepped into a fairytale wedding.

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

Our first dance was a very memorable moment. I've never really been much of a dancer, but my husband loves to dance. I remember being so nervous standing in the middle of a room with over 300 people in it and having to slow dance. We had only practiced our dance a couple of times and didn't take into account how heavy the dress would be. I remember feeling a sense of calm as the song started playing since I knew that I could trust him to make us look uncoordinated and graceful.

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

Do not stress about the details and enjoy your day. Remind yourself that this is a once in a lifetime experience and don't let "little things" bother you. Remind yourself that you have the best big thing: the love of your husband.

Thank you Nusrat! Another day, another fab Indian wedding! We'll see you all bright and early tomorrow morning!

Austin, Texas Fusion Indian Wedding by Spinning Leaf Films

Michelle and Paraag chose the most festive time of the year to host their Indian fusion wedding soiree! We’re swooning over the twinkling lights and evergreen trees that studded this whimsical event. After watching the romantic film by Spinning Leaf Films we’re dreaming of wintery crisp air and gingerbread lattes in the midst of this heatwave! With the planning aid of Yellow Umbrella Events and decor by Austin Rainbow Bouquet, the celebrations were a picture perfect soiree filled with sparkle and shine. For her Indian ceremony, Michelle wore a ruby red sari covered in golden embroidery. Makeup by Lip Service XO and hair by Garbo Salon pulled out all the stops to create Michelle’s beauty look, and she resembled an Indian Queen. Meanwhile, Paraag led a dynamic baraat on his trusty steed courtesy of Fantasia Carriage. The lovebirds were married under a pastel mandap, and blooms were arranged by Austin Rainbow Bouquet as the perfect finishing touch to the fairy tale proceedings. For the newlyweds’ reception at the AT&T Hotel & Conference Center, Michelle slipped into an angelic white gown, and the duo danced the night away to the spirited Bollywood beats of Nachle DJ Entertainment. You can bask in the beauty of this Christmastime shindig in the gallery by Studio Uma or scroll below to read out interview with Michelle. And make sure to grab a cup of cocoa and watch the breathtaking wedding film by Spinning Leaf Films.

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

We are both physicians and met during our family medicine residency. He was my senior and I was a new intern. He says the first time we met I did not give him the time of day; that quickly changed! I knew he was the one for me when I could be my honest quirky self with him and feel complete with him by my side.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

He proposed to me at Vino Vino which is the restaurant he took me to for our first date. He waited until after dinner and as they brought out dessert, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

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.

My husband's aunt, sister, and father were very instrumental in helping plan the Hindu ceremony and sangeet/mehendi. My mother and aunt helped as well to round out the Christian ceremony and reception. Together we were able to make great decisions that made our days beautiful.

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

I was fortunate to have my husband's family help me when we visited India. I love pink and so that was definitely a consideration. We found both my wedding sari and sangeet lengha in Lucknow.

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

Seeing it all come together during our wedding weekend.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

They loved the blending of our 2 cultures, the food, and the music.

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

Our Christian wedding vows were very special to us, as well as having his maternal aunt sing during my entrance for the Hindu ceremony. We were so blessed with our loving families support and presence.

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.

Our weddings were both fabulous. We drew on both of our cultures to try and blend our 2 families. We started with the traditional Christian ceremony (which was supposed to be outside) but nature had other plans. It turned out absolutely beautiful inside with rain drops running down the windows, winter-inspired decorative Christmas trees in the corner, and our deep fuchsia with light pink and teal color scheme highlighted with beautiful bouquets on the ends of the rows. Following our Christian ceremony was the traditional sangeet and mehendi. It was full of bright colors, food and drinks, singing and dancing, and henna. The next day we had a traditional Hindu ceremony preceded by the baraat. That evening was our traditional reception incorporating our Mandap as the center of the room that housed our sweetheart table.

Yara was absolutely fabulous and our 4 events would not have been as beautiful was it not for her. She was the brains behind the décor. We had wanted to have the Christian ceremony outside with nature as the main décor; at the last minute it was changed inside and Yara with her team made the inside space absolutely stunning with ivory draping behind the stage. Our sangeet and mehendi was popping with colors, beautiful lanterns on the tables and henna stations. Our Hindu ceremony mandap was absolutely beautiful - highlighting some of our favorite colors - gold, teal, fuschia. Our reception incorporated a little from each event preceding it with the mandap in the center and beautiful floral centerpieces and candelabras.

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

Always take time for each other. Try not to get caught up in the tiny details - no one will notice but you. Enjoy each other and don't sweat the small stuff. Give in on the guest list ;)

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

We had great food for each event that highlighted each of our backgrounds. The indian cuisine was fantastic. We also had Michelle make paisley cookies to serve after the Hindu ceremony which were decorated in a henna design. In addition our wedding cake and groom's cake were fabulous. Our groom's cake was modeled after the bottle of wine he proposed over and our wedding cake had an ombre of teal fading to pink with a gold henna design.

We'll see you all bright and early tomorrow for another lovely wedding film!

Woodland Park, NJ Gujarati Wedding by PhotosMadeEz

The dynamic duo of Snehali and Anish got married in sophisticated Gujarati style. Vivacious Snehali preferred simplicity instead of incorporating tons of glitter and bling into her wedding. However, just because she craved a more subdued aesthetic doesn’t mean the celebrations weren’t filled to the brim with sparkle! Snehali and Anish’s cinematic love story was captured beautifully by PhotosMadeEz. The quintessential connection between this lovely couple is so inspiring. We heard it in the pureness of their family and friends' voices as they gushed about the lovebirds through this highlight. Snehal’s choice in bridal wear included vibrant colors such as a ruby ceremony lehenga and cerulean reception gown. She was sensationally adorned in beautiful jewels and henna, and we approve of every gorg look! After all, when else do you get to flaunt your inner Bollywood diva? The bride’s beauty squad was spearheaded by BeautybyHP and Artist Makeup Academy who ensured that not a pleat or bobby pin was out of place. The ceremony and reception took place at the Westmount Country Club and was transformed into a chic haven by Wedding Design and MM Celebrations. The celebrations blasted off into a high octane dance party when the thumping of Bollywood music by Medley Entertainment and DJ Gaurav began rocking the venue’s walls. We’re very excited to share this film with you, so revel in the beauty captured by PhotosMadeEz by clicking play below! And read on for our interview with the Main Maharani herself!

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

I met Anish on the trip to Canada, Spring Break of my sophomore year at Rutgers. He knew I was the one because he came back home immediately and told our friend Hetal and Ryan, “I found that special person!”

Do you have a super romantic proposal story or engagement memory?

We were engaged in Dominican Republic. We went there to celebrate his dad's 60th birthday. We stayed there for seven days; he did everything I had ever wanted to do on the trip like horseback riding on the beach. He told him his dad hired a photographer for family pictures so he was going down to meet him, i walked in couple minutes later and his nephew was holding a sign that said " Follow the trail of roses" and I knew it then! There he was standing in the sand waiting for me! He proposed, of course I said yes! And said I would like to call my mom. Of course my mom didn't pick up the phone because in minutes he asked me to look up saying "look my parents got a few strangers to bring out the congratulations sign". And when they put the sign down, I was the happiest girl alive (not that I already wasn't) - my parents and brother were there! Along with our best friends! It was a beautiful proposal!

Tell us about your wedding style. When you sat down to really figure out how your dream wedding would look, did you start with one central color, a palette of colors, or a theme that served as your inspiration?

I just knew I wanted simple and classy. I didn't like bling, simplicity was the key!

What did you enjoy most about the process of planning your dream Indian wedding?

I enjoyed shopping in India as I got to spend time with my family in India.

How did you choose your lenghas? Did you work with a certain designer? Did you spend hours on the internet first?

I wanted something very simple and of course the parents were against it and wanted me to wear something heavier. But I knew this lengha was the one when my brother said this is it!

Looking back, was there a really special moment that you remember from your wedding that stands out as the most magical?

Enjoying every bit of the ceremony and reception as we did not stress one bit thanks to our wonderful families, vendors, and of course the coordinators!

Have a wonderful Monday Maharanis!

Calgary, AB Sikh Wedding by Michael J. Scott Productions

Michael J. Scott Productions never fails to create the most epic wedding films. Our eyes were overwhelmed by all the scenic beauty in this out of this world clip. Watercolor sorbet skies and purple mountain majesties framed Navneet and Abhi as they frolicked on the rugged terrain. The glamorous twosome held their beautiful Sikh ceremony out of The Sikh Society of Calgary followed by a reception at Civic on Third. The weekend unfolded perfectly, and Michael J. Scott Productions masterfully composed this film to capture all the most magical moments. Kesar Designs was bequeathed the very important task of dolling the bride up and not a single eyelash was out of place from the magic hands of this makeup artist. SK Bridal came on board as the mehndi master, and the bride’s intricate henna was carefully designed in a one of a kind pattern that added to Navneet’s shine. The main Maharani wore a gorgeous peach and gold dusted lengha and lux pearl accessories that were the epitome of elegance and class. The glittering and intricate design details of her bridal attire instantly caught our attention and we couldn’t keep our eyes of the bride in a single clip of this highlight. The reception event was adorned in blooms by Enchanting Floral Designs with Top Wedding Decor Calgary bathing each corner of the venue with the utmost in luxurious design. And of course with Pure Entertainment Canada at the turntables,  the night consisted of a packed dance floor and a rocking celebration. There’s way too much prettiness to describe, so sit back, relax, and watch Navneet and Abhi’s special day unfold.

So stunning right? We'll bring you another gorg wedding film bright and early tomorrow morning!

Leesburg, VA Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

Harleen and Shravan are such a sweet, playful duo, and are the ultimate Disney and Harry Potter fans. They combined their sophisticated style with some childhood throwbacks to result in a dynamic wedding weekend filled to the brim with sparkle and shine! We were dazzled by all the glittering accessories and decor at their sangeet at Westfields Marriott and the Sikh and Hindu wedding ceremonies at Lansdowne Resort. We also loved that the couple and their loved ones are such fantastic dancers and were treated to a bevy of hip hop, bhangra, and bharatnatyam style boogying throughout the weekend! Also, we squealed in delight over Harleen and Shravan's reception seating chart that was organized by different Disney movie titles! We would have roared in happiness had we been assigned to their the "Lion King" table. Maharanis, we're seeing couple's getting super creative with their table numbering schema, and movie titles are such a perfect way to showcase your personality while also delighting your guests! With so much talent in one room, guests were raring to dance it up to the banging sounds of DCs Dynasty. Harleen and Shravan’s bash was a magical showcase of their deep love mixed with childlike wonder, and we're swooning over every sentimental detail. Kudos to the creative couple for dreaming up such a violet hued fantasyland and to Dream Shaadi for their seamless planning skills. Enjoy the sparkling wedding film by Photographick Studios. For all the photos, fly over to the full gallery. Enjoy Maharanis!

Have a lovely day Maharanis!
