Costa Rica Indian Wedding by Jonathan Yonkers

We instantly felt refreshed after watching the beautiful Costa Rican wedding film of Shivani and Nikesh by Jonathan Yonkers! The festivities were jam packed and totally creative, beginning with a Lip Sync battle between Shivani and Nikesh. It was so much fun to see the couple rock out to their favorite songs and a perfect way for guests to let loose and get to know each other! Four Nineteen Weddings did a fantastic job helping to plan the wedding, and all events flowed seamlessly! Though the beachside vibe was relaxed, the couple went full glam with their bridal looks! We’re such a fan of Maharani Shivani’s half up bouffant and dewy makeup by Kashish by Hina, and loved how her red and green lehenga popped so beautifully against the crystal clear water! Shivani then slipped into an angelic white gown for her reception extravaganza decorated by Eventos Boadicea, and guests had the time of their lives dancing (and participating in an perfectly executed Mannequin challenge) to music by WDJCR while waves crashed in the background. Hit play to watch this epic film, and if you want more beachy goodness, head into the full gallery by Jonathan Yonkers! And make sure to scroll below for our full interview with Shivani! We loved learning all about this jet setting duo and the behind the scenes action from the main Maharani herself!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Well, this may be obvious due to the decision to have a destination wedding but the both of us LOVE to travel. The summer after our college graduation we both decided that it would be the perfect time to go backpacking through Europe before we joined the adult/working world. We spent our time falling in love with places like Venice, Berne, London, Cinque Terre, Dublin, and more but it was Paris that Nikesh decided to propose in! On the 6th day in Paris after spending days falling in love with the city we decided to go back to the Eiffel tower one last night. At exactly 1 AM (when the Eiffel tower lights up at night) he turned to me and told me that the last few days had been the most amazing adventure and the best time ever. He had hoped that we could live the rest of our lives with that sense of adventure and love – and of course, I completed lost it and said YES!!!

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

I actually traveled to Mumbai in December of 2015 with my parents, little brother, and grandfather to go shopping for the wedding! I knew that I wanted two things with the outfit that I chose for the wedding day: I wanted it to simple (not too heavy since it was going to be an outdoor beach wedding) and I wanted it to be something that would fit my “Costa Rica/Nature” theme! I have the most amazing family in the whole world – they literally spent three weeks going around Mumbai and looking for the outfits of my dream! At the end we stumbled upon a small boutique and that is where I found the outfit. I instantly loved the colors – I knew I wanted to have red on the outfit but I thought that the bottle green color was super perfect for Costa Rica! The minute I tried on the outfit I knew it was what I had been looking for!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

I think that they loved how intimate it was. Over the entire three day wedding, we actually had the time to hang out and talk to our family and friends that made it out to Costa Rica. Not to mention, I think many of them were able to take advantage of being in Costa Rica and traveling around the country both before and after the event! What Nikesh and I didn’t want was a three day wedding that was super hectic and went by in a blur. Having our wedding in a country whose motto is “Pura Vida” really helped everyone be on a sort of “Island time” and just overall relaxed!

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

On the weekend of our wedding a hurricane was actually expected to touch down in Costa Rica! However, literally every day/event was perfect and the rain never bothered us at all. The most perfect moment was on Saturday morning before the wedding ceremony. It was pouring rain ALL early morning and we really thought that we might have to move everything indoors. However, my dad and his best friend refused and said we were going to have the wedding outside rain or shine because that is what Nikesh and I had wanted (tents and all!). An hour before the ceremony started, the skies literally cleared up, the sun came out, and everything seemed like it had never been touched by rain.

As I walked down the aisle with my mama (and then my dad) the waves, the beach, my future husband waiting for me at the mandap, and everything surrounding us literally looked like a dream and it was the most perfect ceremony that Nikesh and I could have asked for. At that moment, I knew I was the luckiest girl! 

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

My biggest piece of advice is to TRY to go with the flow on the weekend of the wedding. I learned that having a wedding (and especially) a destination wedding means that things will not always go the way you planned – and this should be totally 100% okay. At the end of the weekend, it wasn’t the flowers that were selected for the centerpieces or the lights hanging on the trees that I was looking at/appreciating. It was the 120 family & friends that had flown all the way to Costa Rica to be with us and my future husband that I wanted to spend all my time & energy focusing on!! In a way, having a destination wedding can really help you achieve this!

So gorgeous right? We're ready for a beach vacay! See you all tomorrow!

New Delhi Indian Wedding by Magica

Today, we share a special Indian wedding out of beloved India that will have you believing in love over and over. The story of Chandni and Chinmay brought tears to my eyes and is the epitome of true love that is indeed grand. As childhood friends, Chandni could never have imagined that she would be spending the early years of her life with her soulmate. Interestingly enough, their journey in life began when they were seated together because they wouldn’t talk to each other. Well, the rest is history. Rish Agarwal of Magica has presented Maharani Weddings with the film highlight of their gorgeous union in India. What we enjoyed most about this film is that the main focus intermingles both the bride and groom’s own story while chiseling in moments of their big day. After viewing this highlight, there is no doubt in my mind that both Chandndi and Chinmay are destined soul mates. We are sure you will agree too. Hit play!

Thanks for joining us in this beautiful union out of India. Tomorrow we showcase yet another Indian wedding affair.

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!
