Florida Fusion Wedding by ABCI Studios

We love watching films that highlight our lovely couples before their crazy South Asian affair. In this short, cinematic highlight captured by ABCI Studios, Tammy and Royce can be seen frolicking in peaceful and natural settings throughout the luscious outdoors. The couple met in college and Tammy knew he was the one with the unconditional love Royce dished out. The couple were simply meant to be. Take an extra close look at how gorgeous Maharani Tammy looks in all her shots. Thanks to the magical touch of Mehwish Karim-Siddique, this beauty was a pure knockout. Although this film is short, we are sure this day was full of memories that Tammy and Royce will cherish for a lifetime. You won’t want to miss the bubbly video by hitting play!

P.S. The bride shares some cutesy details down below!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

As you may know by now, Royce and I have known each other for quite some time and as couple we have many traditions that we started together. One of our favorite traditions is visiting New York City every winter near Christmas time. We have always managed to visit the large Christmas tree and ice rink at Rockefeller Plaza and snap a quick picture or two. So when Royce asked me to come visit him in NYC this last December (2015) I didn’t expect anything much different other than the fact that it would have been our fifth consecutive visit together! I was pretty excited and since Royce usually has some sort of surprise for me I didn’t think much of it when he acted more strangely than usual.

By the time Saturday morning rolled around, we had met for breakfast and everything was pretty normal other than Royce rushing me for a “surprise” he had scheduled. We called a cab and we arrived at Rockefeller Plaza! Still nothing odd occurred to me and figured he was just finally taking me ice skating this time since we only watched other people skate during all our previous visits.  I had learned to ice skate as kid in Florida and well, let’s just say Royce never did and wasn’t very good. To my surprise however, once we got on the ice he started skating like a pro! I asked myself how he was so good all of sudden.

Soon the ice arena began making announcements to clear the rink for the Zamboni. I tried to rush Royce off but he asked me to wait five more minutes. Soon the rink was cleared and only a few people were left on the ice. What happened next was a complete blur. He was down on one knee, the crowd was cheering and he asked me to stick my hand out! He just put a ring on it!  We were officially engaged and an entire crowd of people were there to witness the proposal. I then learned that Royce had been preparing and practicing for several months and secretly learning how to ice skate for this very day!

Soon after we left the rink, we both visited a Cathedral nearby to pray and pay our respect and gratitude for allowing us to come this far in our relationship. The phone calls soon began and I was still in shock. The first people I called of course were my parents. They were so happy and in “Florida”. Later on that evening I would discover that they were in New York the entire time waiting to celebrate with us.

After our church visit, Royce rushed me back to a beautiful hotel in the heart of the city where two women greeted me in the lobby. Royce arranged for the “Glam Squad” to come and help me get my hair and makeup done as another surprise! Royce explained that we have guests waiting for us at dinner and when we finally arrived, to my surprise of course I saw the two people I love the most in the universe. There stood both my parents with huge smiles on their faces. Another surprise, the day couldn’t get any better! After dinner with both our families, I was surprised over and over by more friends and family all night and together we celebrated.

What a lovely story! Head on back tommorow for your daily dose of Indian wedding fun!

Maryland Fusion Wedding by RIMAS FILMS

We love how cinematic highlights manage to capture our hearts in mere minutes and leaves us with all sorts of feelings. Streamlining a cohesive set of Indian events and condensing them all to capture the essence of a South Asian Indian affair is an onerous task but one that RIMAS FILMS handles with ease. We love the stories of how our Maharanis meet their future beau and Natasha and Ajesh’s story is just so invigorating. “I first met Natasha when I was her ride to a Bible study. I tried to make conversation with her but she was quiet and shy and barely talked to me. After the Bible study, I dropped her back off and I thought that was the end of it. But to my surprise, she texted me within a few minutes and after that moment, I couldn't get her to stop talking!” After a blissful seven years the couple were joined in sacred matrimony at the Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church. For her ceremony the bride wanted to mix in her traditional Indian roots with a gorgeous sheer white sari with a silk blend blouse that she paired with Indian embellishments. After the ceremony guests flocked to the Sheraton Tysons Corner where DJ Kush of Mixed Sounds kept the crowd moving. The bride changed into a raw silk sari, continuing with her Bollywood bride vibe. Each step of the way AISM Photography was there to capture all the still images that we can't wait to see! Hit play for this gorgeous union celebrating this lovely couple.


 

We hope you enjoyed this film feature! See you all tomorrow.

Lewisville, Texas Wedding by Inspired Effects

This serene wedding film by Inspired Effects is drenched in hues of violet and captures the magic of Lisha and Ajith’s marriage celebrations perfectly! Lisha and Ajith were the picture perfect bride and groom, with Maharani Lisha in a classic lace gown with dewy makeup by Makeup by Jeena Samuel and an elaborate, flowing ‘do by Elizabeth Savoy that made her resemble an angel!  Meanwhile, Ajith and his groomsmen were dashing in crisp gray suits. The expressions of the couple and their guests throughout the film were adorable, and it was obvious how much love was all around! After the meaningful ceremony at GracePoint Church, the energy was cranked up to full blast for the couple’s vibrant fuchsia reception at the Hilton Garden Inn Lewisville! We love fusion weddings for many reasons, but we have to admit the multiple fashion changes make us especially giddy! We cheered when Maharani Lisha entered her ballroom in a glittering gold and purple sari. The color couldn’t have suited her better and she looked gorgeous and ready to party for her purple power reception! Everything about the draping, flowers, and stage setup by Wedding Decor by Faiza was jaw dropping and the ambiance in the ballroom was definitely the height of luxury! The film ended on a euphoric note as guests showed off their best moves to a light show and infectious Bollywood hits by 1Amazing DJ!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

This is one for the books so prepare yourself. April 16th, 2015. I woke up 6am that morning knowing I had to drop my best friend (my matron of honor) to the JFK airport, and the only reason I agreed to do this is because Sandy is literally the only person I would wake up that early for. My Mom and Dad somewhat rushing me out of the house because they didn't want me to be late in picking up Sandy which was odd but I didn't think too much of it. I picked up Sandy with her luggage on our drive to the airport she was texting on her phone the entire time and I asked what was going and she made up some story that she was fighting with her husband to distract me. We pull up curbside to the drop off area, I get out of the car to help her with her luggage and suddenly I feel someone turn me around and it was Mike! He went down on one knee and as he did it, I saw all my parents, his parents family and friends come out through the terminal gate doors all with their phone cameras in their hands and I was in complete shock. He proposed and I literally couldn't speak, and just nodded yes. Sandy handed me her luggage and said this is for you. It wasn't just a proposal but a surprise engagement getaway to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for 3 days. When I left my house that morning Mike and my closest girlfriends when into my house to with my mom to pack some clothes and things I would need for my trip. Here I thought I was just going to work. It was the perfect proposal and I literally had no clue. You know a girl is surprised when her nails aren't done and makeup isn't on. Mike really thought about everything. He got permission from my parents and even called me job and my supervisor to ensure it was okay to whisk me away for couple of days. Aside from our wedding days, it was one of the best moments of my life.

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

The most enjoyable part of our planning was realizing that Mike was not the typical groom but definitely a partner. Planning and vision was definitely a joint effort and gave me an example of how our marriage would be; a true partnership.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

I felt our guests definitely loved all the dance performances but the Hindu wedding and the feeling that they were in actual Bollywood movie at times and really just enjoying themselves at the wedding. Most of our families are still talking about it.

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

Well it was more so two special moments...being carried in my dholi and then being able to walk down the aisle and both times just focusing on Mike seeing how genuinely happy he was... it wasn't just in his smile but you could see it in his eyes as well. I'll never forgot that.

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

Forgot about trying to be "different" and just build a vision that works for both you and your future husband/partner. Once your wedding week begins don't stress when things are perfect but know it always just works itself out. The days go by so quickly so try to take in every moment you can... together.

We can't stop cooing over this darling couple and their beautiful love story! See you tomorrow with another fabulous wedding film!

Itasca, IL Fusion Wedding by Old North Film Company

Though the weather was freezing outside on Katie and Neeraj’s wedding day, the environment inside their Eaglewood Resort & Spa venue couldn’t have been warmer! This loved up affair included two matrimonial ceremonies and oodles of excited guests ready to celebrate the much beloved couple! We absolutely loved the couple’s fashions for both events. Maharani Katie wore a coral lehenga for the Indian ceremony and slipped into a diaphanous white gown with a jewel encrusted bodice for the second ceremony. We love it when brides at fusion weddings pay homage to both cultures, and Katie did a fantastic job accomplishing this! Neeraj also looked incredible, in a regal sherwani for the Hindu ceremony, followed by a strapping tux! The event’s photographer from Vrai Photography shared that her favorite moment of the night was when Neeraj cut of the officiant with a joyous “I will!” causing Katie and all the guests to laugh until they cried! After the emotional ceremonies, Katie, Neeraj, and their guests were whisked off to the reception soiree, which was decorated lavishly in draping and colorful flowers by the artists at Dahlia Blooms and tangerine hued uplighting by Dream Occasions! We were hanging on to every word in the speeches given by the newlyweds’ family and friends, and loved that a couple members of the bridal party were in Green Bay Packers hats! Definitely some fierce Packers pride going on! The reception program was extraordinary, including dances by Neeraj’s nieces and nephews and a Ukrainian dance troupe bringing the house down! Katie and Neeraj then took over the dance floor to music by Belle Music and Spinnin' Discs, and guests partied all night long to celebrate Mr. and Mrs. Mehrotra! Maharanis, hit play to enjoy the action packed wedding film by Old North Film Company!

We're so happy it's almost Friday! We'll cap off the week with another fabulous wedding film! See you tomorrow Maharanis!
