Half Moon Bay, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Rachel Blackwell Photography

Welcome back Maharanis! We’re going to end Natasha and Chuck’s wedding coverage with a bang with their styling, Starry Night themed reception. Plan Decor orchestrated splendid navy, purple, and gold decor at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay venue, and the result was pure regal and romantic bliss. We were lost in a mesmerizing haze of delight as we looked through the photos of this grand event planned by They So Loved Events. We’re obsessing over the ornate tablescapes and the use of paper lanterns tying the Van Gogh-esque theme together. Add in a fog machine that added to the ethereal ambiance of the event, and you have one delectable visual treat! The glowing newlyweds burst into the venue in showstopping elegance, and their guests cheered in delight! Natasha chose the most luxurious petal pink lehenga, accompanied with bombshell hair and makeup by M-Sutra Bride.  Wicked Entertainment ensured a jam packed dance floor with bouncing beats, and guests had their dancing shoes on all night long! Rachel Blackwell Photography captured all the magic moments, so bask in the memorable moments in the full gallery.

Half Moon Bay, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Rachel Blackwell Photography

At Maharani Weddings, we adore every beautiful detail that goes into an Indian wedding ceremony. Natasha and Chuck’s ceremony is such a perfect example of why we love what we do. From the lux Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay venue to the floral adorned mandap by Plan Decor, this celebration was a work of art! We teared up when we caught sight of Maharani Natasha floating down the rose petal strewn aisle after being primped and polished by the artists at M-Sutra Bride. So breathtaking! And we were swooning over Natasha and Chuck’s reunion under their fairytale mandap encased in a plethora of pink and red blooms. The lovebirds had a lovely, traditional ceremony, and the electricity between them was obvious to all. As they were declared husband and wife, the duo ran down the aisle to their awaiting horse and buggy. Talk about a fairytale finish! For more loveliness, head into the full gallery captured by Rachel Blackwell Photograph for all the magic moments.

Half Moon Bay, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Rachel Blackwell Photography

Hi lovelies! Today we have a stunning Indian fusion wedding out of our very favorite state: California! We love California weddings because they always contain tons of style and often incorporate the gorgeous Cali sunshine. Natasha and Chuck’s union at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay was no exception, and we’re loving the blend of two different cultures, beliefs, and families within this special celebration. The morning of the wedding ceremony, M-Sutra Bride showed up bright and early to dazzle this bride up. They used their magic brushes to create a mysterious smokey eye, ruby red lips, and a side swept, Hollywood glam ‘do. Simply sensational! Natasha donned a traditional gold and red lehenga with tons of bold embroidery work and fashion forward kundan jewels. She was a vision as she posed with her bridesmaids alongside the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Before she knew it, it was time to walk down the aisle to greet her elated beau. We’re so excited to share all the breezy and chic deets of Natasha and Chuck’s outdoor affair planned by They So Loved Events. But until then, you can let all the beauty wash over you in our full gallery captured by Rachel Blackwell Photography. And scroll below for our fun interview with Natasha!

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

Chuck and I met at our MBA program at UT Austin - McCombs School of Business.  We first met when we were randomly assigned to work on a business simulation together.  I saw that he was very intense, smart, driven and a bit intimidating.  After getting to know him he turned out to be very sweet, caring, funny and easy to talk to.  There wasn't a moment that I knew he was "the one."  I just followed my gut (and my heart)!

 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

We knew we were planning on getting married, but I didn't know when he was planning on proposing.  While walking along the pier in San Francisco, we were taking some pictures.  While I was looking out at the water, he was behind me getting down on one knee.  When I turned around, I found him holding out a gorgeous ring.  A photographer caught the moment so we will have it forever.

 

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 mom and our wedding planner, Stacy Wichelhaus of They So Loved Events, did the bulk of the work in planning the wedding.  Chuck and I were both busy with school and laid-back about the whole process.  Mom is a great planner and very organized.  Stacy was also great at finding high-quality vendors, design of the spaces, and keeping us on schedule.  She was a pleasure to work with!

Chuck and I are fast decision-makers.  We chose our theme, Starry Nights, after browsing wedding themes on Pinterest for twenty minutes one night.  We didn't even know we were supposed to have a theme before Stacy mentioned it!  Chuck's favorite color is navy blue and I love anything sparkly (like gold) so it was perfect for us.

The venue, Ritz-Carlton at Half Moon Bay, was gorgeous.  We got great shots with the drone filming the event.  All the food the Ritz catered was great - we had a Spanish-themes mehendi and an Asian-themed welcome dinner.  

I was a huge fan of our DJ's from Wicked Entertainment.  They were on top of things and played a fun mix of Indian and American pop/hip-hop.  The dance floor was packed!  The lighting they provided set a nice ambiance as well.

 

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

We went with my family to Mumbai to shop for all our wedding outfits.  I considered pink, blue, and coral but decided to stay traditional with red and gold.  Chuck, Mom and Grandma were all with me while I tried on dresses.  It was frustrating at first having multiple opinions at one time, and tiring shopping while we were jet-lagged.  But after trying on maybe ten dresses at a few different stores I found the one I loved and that we all agreed on.  It had some red but was mostly gold (again, my favorite color!)

 

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

Looking for wedding dress ideas on Pinterest and shopping in Mumbai!  I love to dress up, and my wedding was the one time I could get away with wearing something very sparkly.  Choosing outfits was a lot of fun.

 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

The guests really enjoyed the venue.  It was a very nice hotel on the coastline with a bike path, so between events they could bike or walk along the path and enjoy the scenery.  There is also a fire pit they could hang out and mingle at.  They also enjoyed all the dancing at the mehendhi and reception.

 

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

Our first look was very emotional for me, which surprised me because I usually don't get very emotional. Chuck was waiting with his back to me by the cliff overlooking the ocean, and it was overcast.  It was a very romantic atmosphere.  That was the moment it dawned on me that we were actually getting married that day.

 

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.

We had a Spanish-themed mehendi party, to mix things up.  Spanish tapas are my favorite food and I thought it would be a fun theme.  We had some great appetizers like croquettes, patatas bravas, and crab-stuffed peppers, as well as larger entrees.  I was so wired I didn't really eat though.  We went with pink, red and orange decor and lighting to go with the Spanish theme.

 

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

Get a great wedding planner with a strong reputation, usually through word-of-mouth.  Stacy ensured that everything ran smoothly for us on our wedding day, and there were many moving parts.  Do your research for all the vendors.  Most of our vendors were great, but there were one or two I was disappointed with who were not on-schedule and behaved unprofessionally.  Be sure to find a stellar photographer and videographer - we loved ours, Rachel Blackwell and Robles Video Productions - because at the end of the day having those memories is what really matters.

 

Gorg ceremony deets up next!

St.Ann, Jamaica Indian Fusion Wedding by Merrick Cousley Photography

Welcome back Maharanis! Today’s love tale centers on the adorable duo of Riti and Givenchy. The couple brought on Borghinvilla Designs and Jennifer Borgh Events to help spearhead wedding planning and design, and the result was a fusion Indian wedding brimming with culture and the tropical beauty of Jamaica. After the couple and their guests enjoyed a pristine beachside ceremony, they were ready to party it up and celebrate the newly betrothed duo! We have to take a moment to commend the gorgeous bride on her various bridal looks. We’re loving how she switched gears from her hot pink ceremony lehenga to a petal pink gown from Elan that epitomized romance. The reception was a luxurious affair, complete with a massive, tiered cake from Joy of Food and a decadent spread of culinary delights at the Borghinvilla. Riti and Givenchy capped the joyous night off by letting off fire lanterns into the starry sky. What a magical ending to the most incredible weekend of love and laughter! Head into the full gallery by Merrick Cousley Photography where you can find plenty of inspiration for your own destination wedding.

St.Ann, Jamaica Indian Fusion Wedding by Merrick Cousley Photography

It was a gorgeous day in Jamaica for Riti and Givenchy to finally tie the knot! Mother Nature decided to give our adorable couple perfectly blue waves and radiant sunshine for their celebration at the Borghinvilla. Arriving bright and early, Chasity Artistry dolled the bride up with their dazzling brushes, and she resembled a Bollywood bombshell. Riti slipped into a gorgeous hot pink lehenga plucked from Shyamal & Bhumika, and the style fit this vivacious, fashionista bride perfectly. The wedding took place outdoors with the serene backdrop of the white beach. Borghinvilla Designs designed the most fitting decor for the nuptials, sticking to neutral florals as a way not to overshadow the picturesque outdoors. And we have to give props to Jennifer Borgh Events who made sure each and every detail was planned and executed with care. Merrick Cousley Photography has shot some stellar images so head into the gallery where you will find a treasure cove of pics to get through the day!
