Cedar Grove, New Jersey Indian Wedding by Pandya Photography

Greetings, girlies! The photographically-gifted Pandya Photography along with Daniel Ward Videography share with us a joyous Indian wedding that takes place at The Grove NJ. Before we uncover the ceremony, let's first focus on the Maharani of the moment. Days after celebrating at her sangeet at the Shree Swaminarayan, here is the blushing bride, Sweta, getting ready for her big day. I am enchanted by the smokey eye makeup and the bright rose lip by Style by Susmita. Sweta is positively glowing as she's blinged-out in gold bridal jewelry. The gold tikka beautifully frames her radiant face. And, you can't go wrong with that classic pair of peep-toe shoes. Stay with us because there's a lot more to come including fabulous floral and decor by the talented Rangoli Weddings! Until then, see more of the bride getting all dolled-up in the gallery!

From the bride, on the hair and makeup:

"I knew from past weddings I attended that I would want Susmita Patel to style me as her looks are simply flawless – creating stunning looks while allowing the bride to still look and feel like herself. After showing her my outfits, she immediately told me my vision without me saying much of anything. With so many factors to think about on the day of, worrying about my hair and makeup was one of the things I didn’t want to have on my list. On the day of, she helped me remain calm and created the perfect looks without taking too much time, allowing me to spend more time out of the makeup chair and with my guests as well as taking pictures."

Pre-wedding portraits are coming up!

New York, New York Indian Wedding by Salwa Photography

Welcome back, ladies! I must say that I love outdoor portrait shoots! The bridal fashions always shine bright in the natural light as does the beauty of our lovely Maharanis. And of course, Salwa Photography reaffirms that with this breathtaking collection of portraits of the gorgeous couple. Sonal's extravagant red and gold lengha is a show-stopper for sure, right girls?! Harjot looks quite dapper in his tailored black suit complete with a black bowtie with white polka-dots. It's awesome to think this couple met on a blind date and a natural disaster brought them back together. They were definitely destined to be! What a romantic story and what a charming couple. If you can't get enough of this dazzling duo, check out even more portraits in the gallery!

From the bride, on how they met:

"Harjot and I met in the summer of 2012 on a blind date set up through mutual friends. I was living in Miami at the time and he was living in New York and we met in New York when I had flown up to visit my parents. My friends had kept bugging me to meet this “handsome funny Punjabi guy” who they thought would be a good match for me and who would keep me on my toes. I decided to give it a shot and figured that the worst that could happen was a few hours wasted and the best that could happen was that I would have a fun night out in Manhattan with possibly a cool friendly person. I don’t think either of us expected anything much out of the blind date before actually meeting. To my surprise we had a fantastic time together and he kept me talking and laughing the whole night. He seemed respectful, cultured and grounded, yet also had a goofy, modern, adventurous and spontaneous air about him. I found it strange that I wasn’t nervous or on edge to be talking to a complete stranger. We hung out a few more times during my stay in New York before I went back home to Miami. We kept in touch often but went about our respective daily lives in our different states. As cliché as it sounds, sometimes it’s meant to be and we were destined to be. A month later, my place in Miami was hit with a hurricane and I had to move immediately due to renovations. I had missed my parents and family in NY too much and decided that even though Miami had been a fantastic experience I needed to move back to New York where I had grown up. As soon as I became a New Yorker once again, Harjot & I picked up right where we left off and developed that first blind date into a pattern of dating regularly which turned into a strong exclusive relationship which ultimately paved the path to a marriage and hopefully one that will continue to develop and take us to new heights…"

New York, New York Indian Wedding by Salwa Photography

Salwa Photography and Jas Motion bring us an amazing Indian affair that takes place in none other than the Big Apple-New York City! Brace yourselves because you are about to get a glimpse at one of the most stunning Maharanis ever as she gets ready for her big day! Choosing the right hair and makeup artist for your wedding is a make it or break it decision, but for this bride, the choice was easy. She decided to go with SophistiCut Salon & Spa, who also dolled her up flawlessly for her engagement party in 2013. Now that's a loyal customer! I see why because that voluminous hair style is fierce! And I will never stop going gaga over a good glittery shadow! I must add that Maharani Sonal sure knows how to accessorize. Her ruby tikka is blingtastic, and those champagne-colored peep-toe shoes are too cute with those darling bows made of rhinestones. And whoever chose her engagement ring and wedding band has first class taste! There's so much more to come, including fabulous decor by floral masters Design House Decor! Oh, and did I mention that the meticulous Royal Charms Inc. planned and designed the entire event?! Until then, see more getting ready images in the gallery!

From the bride, on hair and makeup:

"All credit for my hair and makeup for all my wedding events go to Ms. Farida Naseem from Sophisticut. Mostly all brides-to-be book various trials with several makeup artists to get only the best for their big day. I basically took a leap of faith when I booked Ms. Naseem to do my hair & makeup without any trial for my engagement party in November 2013. She did such a phenomenal job on me for my engagement party that I knew she was going to be my go-to makeup artist for all my wedding festivities. She created a different look for my mehndi party, for my ceremony day, and for my reception day. What I love about her is that she actually listened to me and took my preferences into consideration, as I am very particular about shades and colors and contouring. She transformed me into a doll!"

Feast your eyes on the beautiful bride, Roma, getting ready for her big day.

From the bride, on how they met:

"Tapan had seen a photo of me on Facebook through a mutual friend. After months of insisting we be introduced, we met at a birthday party in Bodega Bay. We spent the whole night talking, exchanged numbers, and we have been inseparable since."

On the proposal:

"Following a grueling academic semester, Tapan had a surprise trip planned for the two of them. When they got to the airport it was clear they were headed to Los Angeles, also known to Roma as DISNEYLAND! Upon landing, the cab driver took them to the Grand Californian hotel where they checked in for the weekend. As this hotel was part of California Adventure, it only made sense to use the first day at this theme park. They had made it through only one ride before Tapan started getting antsy, insisting he had heard "the Sleeping Beauty castle is amazing" and that they must go see it at "dusk." After much insisting, the two rushed across the park to enter into Disneyland. As they approached the castle, Tapan suggested getting pictures taken by one of the Disney photographers. After just a few clicks, Tapan got down on one knee and popped the big question, and the Happiest Place on Earth became even happier…"

On the hair & makeup:

"I had a hair trial with Christal Caladaio a few months before the ceremony, and I loved my looks at the time. The makeup was flawless, even at the trial. However, days before the wedding I found other hair styles that I fell in love with and knew I wanted for my events. I showed these to Christal hours before each event, and she went above and beyond to match and top each of the looks I selected. I would trust her with any and all hair and make up styles."

On the bridal fashions:
"I did some brief internet research before I was connected with a designer in India. With his help, I was able to design my outfits for the garba/sangeet, ceremony, and the reception. I designed Tapan's outfits for the garba/sangeet and the ceremony with this designer too."

On a special detail:

"My mom insisted I wear real gold for the ceremony, and she added a special touch of giving me jewelry she wore for her wedding over 35 years ago (something borrowed and something old, all in one!) It was very special for the both of us."

That is incredibly sweet. Pre-wedding portraits are up next!
