Lake Tahoe, CA Fusion Wedding by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema

The sporadic rainfall that occurred during Asha and Eric's wedding ceremony simply added to the mystical beauty of this Lake Tahoe wedding. Here at Maharani Weddings, we are huge fans of Lake Tahoe getaways so were thrilled when this film by the superb Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema came across our desks. And the wedding, which took place at Squaw Valley Resortdefinitely did not disappoint! Sweeping aerial shots of magnificent, untouched NoCal nature juxtaposed against the bride and groom preparing for their big day captured the romantic, anticipatory energy of the event. This wedding was complete sophistication from beginning to end, and featured a rustic-chic theme that was overseen by the planning and design wizards at Once Upon a Time Events. Maharani Asha was the epitome of a poised, radiant bride in a lovely silk sari for her ceremony and a stunning reception lehenga from Neeta Lulla. Their fresh and airy mandap and florals were designed by Avasar Mandap and Thran's Flowers and seamlessly melded with the natural beauty of the surroundings. Their reception was a non-stop dance party - we couldn't stop smiling watching the glowing newlyweds and their guests rock out all night long to music by DJ Gagan with Bay Area Uplighting and enjoying sweets by Little Ladybug Bakery and Flour Girl Wedding Cakes! Check out the video below to witness more fun and glamour from the festivities!

That was simply stunning! We hope you enjoyed the film Maharanis!

Keswick, VA Indian Wedding by Ian’s Creations

Hi Maharanis! We think you'll love today's cheerful and chic wedding film by Ian’s Creations, with photography done by Aaron Watson Photography. Love seemed to emanate from every frame of this film, and we adored the locations, decor, and details that the glowing couple, Anjali & Gopind, chose. The designer and planner for the event, Evelyn Keyes,  worked with the florists and decorators at Couture Design, to create a glamorous event that was the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional. All the included details impressed us - the newlyweds are obviously a very thoughtful twosome, who did a great job of sprinkling special touches throughout the celebrations. A Royal Impression created beautiful stationery for the event, while food from the mouth-watering Bollywood Bistro was served, and decadent desserts from Maliha Creations and Carpe Donut thrilled the guests! The Castle Hill Cider venue was a perfect venue choice for this sophisticated couple. Their ceremony took place outdoors on The Castle Hill Cider's sprawling grounds, with the following reception taking place in the venue's equally beautiful indoor space. The venue was transformed into a twinkling dreamland filled with candles and lush florals, giving the reception a very romantic feel. Anjali looked gorgeous throughout her ceremony and reception in bridal fashions from Studio East6, with intricate mehndi by Henna Harmony, and glamorous hair and makeup by Sapna Desai. We're so happy for this adorable couple and wish them all the best on their new adventure as husband and wife! Watch more from their incredible wedding in the video below!

We hope you loved the film! We'll see you all tomorrow Maharanis!

Iowa City, IA Fusion Wedding by Nepo Productions

From the very beginning, it was written in the stars for Melanie and Dan. The story behind the proposal is one for the books, and we’re going to share with you at the end of this post! But right now, it is Melanie and Dan’s fusion wedding that we simply must share with you! Nepo Productions brought this love story to life beautifully, and set the film to tunes that struck the right chord. The style of the film was distinctive on its own, with a lot of raw clips that added a real and riveting touch. The ceremony was hosted in the amphitheater of The Celebration Farm and coordinator LOLA Event Productions imbued it with never-seen-before elements that had both our hearts and our curiosity! Guests chairs were laid out on the lawn steps, where Adam Covington Signature Studio set up floral elephants that greeted everyone at the beginning of the aisle. “In Hinduism, one of our most revered Gods is Ganesh, who is depicted as an elephant. I asked our decor vendor if they could make decorative elephants for the ceremony entrance and they came through amazingly,” shared Melanie. The distinctive altar featured three cream arches, built of stone, in descending sizes, completed with floral arrangements, saffron and rani pink drapes. Maharani Melanie wanted a traditional South Indian look, so she opted for a red and gold Kanjivaram sari paired with exquisite gold temple jewelry. Chrysalis Fashion, a boutique owned by one of Melanie’s bridesmaids, Mira Bedi, custom made all the bridal outfits. Susie Morales and Eden Salon made for a dream hair and makeup team. We particularly loved Melanie’s hair do that was woven with fresh jasmine flowers. A Touch of Class and Shree Indian Vegetarian Restaurant pleased the palates of the guests with their perfect mix of American and Indian cuisines. Post vows, Melanie and Dan were all set to party at their reception fueled by the DJs from Creative Sounds, indoors at The Double Round barn. From the oval wood ceiling to handmade chandeliers that give the barn a starlit appearance, this was one mesmerizing venue. The custom cake by Deluxe Cakes & Pastries with a custom cake topper was simply adorable! “Dan and I have a common love of dancing and enjoying music and so we wanted that to be a major part of our reception. We brainstormed down to every last detail to make it lively, colorful and most importantly really represent us,” said the beautiful Melanie. Hit play on this gorgeous film to relive this fusion fiesta, and read their written-in-the-stars story below!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I had asked my then-boyfriend, Dan, if he'd like to go with me to a Broadway show in Kennedy Center in DC and he said a casual "Sure!" Since then, though, I had forgotten all about it and started planning other things to do for the summer. Then, out of nowhere, Dan said nonchalantly he had gotten tickets for the show and I was pleasantly surprised and so glad he had remembered. I've always tried to catch celestial happenings when I could and I had heard earlier in the week that the Perseid Meteor shower was going to happen and the East Coast had the perfect skies for it. I had told Dan we should try and see them after the show. As we walked out, Dan said "Hey, want to check out those meteors?" Needless to say, Dan insisted and I agreed thinking it was a good opportunity after all and I really shouldn't miss it. Dan said the National Mall would be a perfect place to see them so we parked and walked towards the Lincoln Memorial. In between each column, we peered out, looking to see if we saw anything until we got to the last column and then my right hand is taken and I'm swiveled around and Dan is on one knee! I gasp and my head is kind of dizzy and I'm processing what is happening. But when I hear "Will you marry me?" I said "Yes!" and it was the most perfect moment. After a few minutes, Dan points out in the dark in front of us and I see one of our friends had been there taking pictures! I thought I had seen a familiar figure but was distracted just in time. I could not stop smiling or laughing and was truly in a daze. 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
One of my favorite parts of the planning process was settling in with my iPad and noting all the ideas I've had in my head as I've dreamt of my wedding day. I had envisioned so many details such as the floral elephants, the colorful drapery and flowers, the wands adorned with bells to wave as we celebrated our pronouncement of husband and wife. I was very happy I was able to take what I was wishing for and put it together with my great vendors. It was worth all the hours because the day was perfect and so beautiful and exactly how I had pictured it! The photos capture the colors, greenery and whimsy I wanted for the special day.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The most important thing to Dan and I was to make the entire wedding weekend an extension of our personalities. Down to the decor, the ceremony details, the outfits, the food and drink, and the music, we had a big hand in it all to make it as personal as possible. We wanted an explosion of color wherever we and our guests looked which was exactly what the day turned out with the beautiful flowers, lights and amazingly colorful Indian outfits we all wore. Our family and friends told us they loved all the personal touches which made it all the more special for us!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Before our wedding, we held a Mendhi Karaoke night after our rehearsal dinner and our closest friends and family took the "stage" with Dan and I to belt out all of our favorite classics. It was such a memorable way to kick off the wedding festivities and the hilarity that ensued still is one of our favorite things to re-collect and laugh over. Since our wedding was a fusion wedding, I wanted all of our friends and family to have a chance to have mendhi designs on their hands since it is such a beautiful custom of Hindu weddings. My friends running up to show me the fun art they had gotten done is a great memory I have!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Always remember that "Where there is Love, there is Life"

We hope that this fusion wedding took away the hump from your day! Return to the blog tomorrow for more such fun weddings!

Cancun, Mexico Indian Wedding by Mike Cantarell Films

It’s only Day 2 of 2017 and Trina and Anil’s wedding film makes us feel like it’s going to be one stellar year full of stellar weddings! We are so in awe of Mike Cantarell’s work, particularly his team’s expertise with drones and aerial cinematography. “This was one of the most extraordinary weddings that we have seen,” shared the Mike Cantarell team. Truer words have not been spoken, because if holidaying at Cancun is itself so gorgeous, imagine what it must be like to get married there! Trina and Anil’s Cancun carnival at JW Marriott Cancun began with one blockbuster of a Sangeet that was all about regal colors like purple, red, and black. It featured a ton of impressive dance performances, and was festive fusion at its finest. The next day, a gorgeous wedding ceremony was hosted outdoors, expertly crafted by Rose Events with floral and decor work done by Alquimia Events. Pastels reigned supreme at the ceremony which worked amazingly because it was a day affair. Delicate tulle mint drapes made for the frame of the mandap, with roses in coral, peach, and red hues adding the right amount of pop. Our Maharani Trina looked like a Disney princess with ethnic regalia in a blue sweetheart blouse paired with a blush pink lehenga. We loved how her beau complemented by donning a blush pink embroidered Safa with his cream sherwani. Crystal garlands and decor gave understated elegance to the whole decor. This modern couple said their Marhabas by opting for an au courant Moroccan-esque beach side soiree in place of a reception. We think that is a fantastic way of keeping your post-wedding celebrations relaxed and casual! The outdoor, waterfront set up with string lights, fireworks that lit up the sky, and belly dancers turned the vibrant Moroccan feel up a notch. Jet skis, kite surfing, walks on the beaches, and photo shoots with picturesque backgrounds were native to the Trina Anil bash. We cannot wait to see what the photos by Claudia Rodriguez look like! Hit play on the fab video to be transported to Cancun in a jiffy!

We hope your Monday and your New Year is off to a marvelous start with this exotic wedding bash! The year seems promising already, and we cannot wait to share the awesomeness with you. Return to the blog soon!
