We’re in paradise after viewing Sharifa and Ravi’s one of a kind destination fusion Indian wedding. Our hearts were filled with joy as we basked in the beauty of Maui’s beaches while witnessing the deep love between this charming duo. With the gorgeous location of Maharani Sharifa and Raja Ravi’s royal wedding affair, we’re sure guests never wanted to leave. The celebrations took place at the Four Seasons Maui where guests were treated with immaculate hospitality. There’s no denying this venue is an oasis of luxury surrounded by the most picturesque ocean views imaginable. The ceremonies continued with Sharifa trading her lehenga for a breezy white gown from Sottero & Midgley and silver Manolo Blahniks. Their beach side portraits are so whimsical; We adore how playful this couple is! Every cheerful snap makes us want to grab our sunnies and bask in the sunshine. Head into the full gallery where Anna Kim Photography has captured the shindig in its entirety. We have so much more from Sharifa and Ravi’s reception ahead, so hurry back lovelies!

Happy Friday Maharanis! We love capping off the week with sensational destination weddings since they put us in weekend relaxation mode. Sharifa and Ravi’s destination fusion weekend was a beachy yet lux treat that hit all the right notes! They chose the elegant Four Seasons Maui to celebrate their love, and the hotel’s staff pulled out all the stops to ensure this was a once in a lifetime event filled to the brim with otherworldly beauty. Beautiful bride Sharifa was fit for royalty as she walked up to her mandap in a radiant red lehenga and gorg Manolo Blahnik heels that she borrowed from her sister. Excuse us while we pick our jaws up from the ground! Country Bouquets Maui and the Four Seasons Maui created a tropical mandap comprised of fiery hues. This masterpiece was an eclectic blend of fresh florals and synchronized draping with the majestic backdrop of the Hawaiian waters. This Maharani's wedding definitely took the stunning factor up to full blast. Next up is the duo’s Christian ceremony! Take a dip into the charming full gallery captured by Anna Kim Photography. We’ll be back with all the glam reception deets, featuring non-stop fun under the Hawaiian sun!

Welcome back for the final installment of Ketul and Nisha’s wedding bash! For her bridal wear, the Bride chose a fabulously unique hue, and channeled her inner Queen in a mint lehenga. Her look was topped off with princess waves and a golden headpiece by Glitter and Gloss Creations. We’re feeling some major bridal inspo! The ballroom at DFW Airport Marriott was dripping with fantastical decor elements courtesy of the talented team at Decor One. Ketul and Nisha burst into the celebration to cheering guests, and took a seat on their royal stage. A delectable cake by Calling all Cakes stood as a centerpiece, and it matched Maharani Nisha to a tee, down to the mint color and gold adornments. Yum! DJ Riz Entertainment rocked the dance floor, while Daawat and Gopal Restaurant satiated the appetites of hungry guests. VEK Photo has forever memorialized this masterpiece of an event and you can peruse all the photos in the gallery! Make sure to scroll below for our behind the scenes interview with the bride herself!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ketul took me on a surprise trip to Italy and proposed in the most perfect way possible on the Amalfi Coast in Priano.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Looking out the window and watching my Prince Charming fly in on a helicopter to take me away to his fairytale world!
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I felt like a Princess in a picture perfect fairytale wedding. Our wedding was an extravagant 2 weekend long celebration. Starting with the mehndi ceremony, to the grah shanti, garba, and ending the first weekend with the biggest fairytale celebration of all - the wedding. The next weekend we had another garba and ended the 2 week festivities with the reception.
Amazing! Have the most wonderful weekend Maharanis! Don't forget to meet our newest Platinum Guide members!:
We now travel to the Lone Star State, where Ketul and Nisha threw a dazzling garba for their nearest and dearest at the SLPS Event Center. This duo had a long distance love story, beginning in 2014 when they immediately bonded over their common love of food. They explained, “Despite being 2500 miles apart in San Francisco and Atlanta, we saw each other often and became each other's best friends, true loves, and food tasting partners in life.” Ketul and Nisha’s long distance courtship was definitely worth the wait, and their wedding was a spectacular celebration of their love. The Texas portion of the festivities kicked off with a colorful garba that was filled with flair. Every magical moment was captured by the artists at VEK Photo, while DJ Riz Entertainment created euphoric beats and lighting to keep the dance party going all night long! In our next post, we’ll take you into Ketul and Nisha’s fantastical reception soiree, which was luxuriousness personified! For a sneak peek, you can check out all the intoxicating photos in the gallery.
Hurry back Maharanis! We'll be back in a jiffy!
