Montego Bay, Jamaica Destination Wedding by MaxPhoto NY

Nothing quite compares to the excitement of a destination beach wedding! Tasha & Vinny actually had two wedding celebrations, the first in New York, which took place in Tasha’s parents’ backyard. The backyard didn’t quite resemble a typical residential yard however, since it was fitted with an incredibly lavish tent, complete with draping, chandeliers, florals and lighting that transformed the space to resemble the most luxurious of ballrooms. There, the bride and groom were married in a meaningful, traditional Indian ceremony. We give major props to the planning and design team at Platinum Celebrations and the floral, lighting, and decor providers at Elegant Floral Design for creating such incredible ambiance and seamless event design! Tasha And Vinny then jetted off to Montego Bay, Jamaica, to begin their celebrations at the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites, who were very helpful with providing planning services, catering and desserts. We longingly gazed at the photos by the visionaries at MaxPhoto NY of the gorgeous bride and her excited bridesmaids relaxing on their ocean front suite’s balcony. The bridesmaids clinked their mimosa-filled glasses in honor of Tasha & Vinny, excited for the main event to begin! The suite overlooked the stunningly blue ocean and palm-tree dotted landscapes. As beautiful as the surroundings were, nothing compared to the radiance that was Tasha. She wore a breezy and sophisticated gown by The Wedding Plaza, a textured updo created by Iberostar Rose Hall Suites that was perfect for the beachy locale, and dewy makeup that made her look fresh-faced and sun-kissed. And we challenge you not to smile at the photos of Tasha & Vinny frolicking in the water - their playful poses juxtaposed with the breathtaking scenery make for some epic portraits taken by MaxPhoto NY! Check out the complete gallery and join us for their sunny, ocean side ceremony later today!

San Jose, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by JSK Photography

Welcome back Maharanis! We now join Tanika and Nativo at their lavender, ice-castle-esque reception extravaganza at the Dolce Hayes Mansion, planned to perfection by KIS (Cubed) Events with decor and florals by Flowers by Edgar. We are coveting everything about Maharani Tanika's reception look - her couture-level, sparking gold gown flattered her figure beautifully and was such a good mix of Eastern and Western design. Also, her hair is out-of-this world incredible  - Jennifer at The Secret Brush did a fabulous job creating the bombastic look. Her flawless makeup by Marlyn Valencia fit with the glittering reception decor perfectly, and Maharani Tanika had such an aura of loveliness throughout the night! Nativo also looked very handsome in his perfectly tailored suit and a constant smile on his face! His smile only grew bigger when Taneka surprised him with a festive Mariachi band performance. We are inspired by how much this couple loves to surprise each other! Guests had a blast from the beginning of the festivities to the wee hours of the night, where they danced energetically to music by Jhakaas Entertainment and devoured delicious food from Jalsa Catering. Other highlights of the night were the Pop Up Gelato stations and photo booth by Photography By Elyse. You'll want to check the rest of the pics from this amazing event in the gallery all captured by JSK Photography below!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were actually having a "small" birthday BBQ for Nativo. As I looked around, all of my closest friends and family were there. After champagne was passed around, out of nowhere he made a lovely speech and got down on one knee in front of all my close family and proposed. It was so special to me since my mom got to see him do that as she was unfortunately sick. It makes me happy she got got to see how happy we were. It was such a great proposal! I'll never forget it! :)
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.
I knew planning a wedding with 300 guests would be a lot of work! Luckily I had amazing friends to help me, and family all the way from the U.K. to help get everything together. If it wasn't for them I would have been a mess! The Hayes Mansion gave me a list of their preferred vendors. To make it simple, I used most of them as their work was spectacular. I also had a day of coordinater which made it simple. My decorator Edgar was such a delight to work with, and my other vendors made my dream wedding come to real life. It was truly a fairytale wedding for me and my husband.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My aunt and cousins took me shopping in London for my outfit. We went to The Asian Bridal Expo and spent the day there. Luckily I fell in love with one of their designs and made a few alterations to make it more unique and my style. I knew I wanted red and gold to keep it more traditional. It was absolutely breathtaking! And also very heavy!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I would say the shopping for my outfits and also picking out the reception decor. I think as a young girl you always have a idea of how your dream wedding will be. So picking out the colors, flowers, mandap designs, and centerpieces was very fun! Especially when you have so many beautiful choices to pick from.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
A majority of them were non-Indians watching a Indian ceremony for the first time and they loved everyone's outfits and all the bright colors. We also had a photo booth which was a hit, a gelato bar, and a mariachi band which I surprised my husband with - and the food was amazing!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My husband gave me my mother's wedding ring when we did our first look. He replaced the diamond that was missing and gave it to me as a surprise. I will never forget that and now I wear it everyday - it's very special to me.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Someone told me to take a moment and just look around at all your guests as they are enjoying their time. I did that and now have a vision of everyone's smiles and laughter and it has really stuck with me!

So glam right? We'll see you tomorrow lovelies!

San Jose, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by JSK Photography

Morning Maharanis! Tanika and Nativo's matrimonial journey began at Nativo's BBQ birthday party, where he proposed to a completely taken-off-guard Tanika in front of all their dearest family and friends. And the surprises didn't end there for Tanika! During the couple's first look on the sweeping grounds at the Dolce Hayes Mansion, Nativo had a romantic gift up his sleeve when he presented Tanika with her mother's beautiful ring. Tanika was completely overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of her Raja! Aw! We're so thankful the talents at JSK Photography were there to capture the stills from every magical moment, while Juddy Productions was there to capture priceless video footage of the events. In fact, you can watch the full wedding video here! Maharani Tanika looks like a goddess in her royal red lehenga, with vavavoom makeup by Marlyn Valencia and hair by The Secret Brush. The couple had an amazing team to help them orchestrate the wedding events, including the organizational whizzes at KIS Cubed Events who helped them with planning and design, Flowers by Edgar who created beautiful decor concepts, and Jhakaas Entertainment who helped with the baraat, DJ duties, and lighting. We can't wait to share our next post with you all which covers Tanika & Nativo's lavender wonderland of a reception, featuring catering by Jalsa Catering and a mariachi band! Check of the full gallery of this lovely wedding!

Dallas, TX Pakistani Wedding by Nida Rehman Photography

I have to say that Maharani Marium and her adorable beau Asad’s sangeet has completely taken my breath away. The bride reigned supreme in a gorgeous wedding gown that was a creation of jewelled nawabi impressions and motif handiwork; blending culture artistry and modern redesign. Hair and makeup by JTorry Makeup and Hair Artistry flawlessly executed a bridal look that most Pakistani brides would marvel over. Shimmering gold eyelids and bold, red lips was to die for. The Omni Dallas Hotel was outfitted with Weddings by Farah magic touch. One of my favorite elements of the wedding was copious blooms of purple, pink and lilac colored florets that was arranged on each table. The sweetheart stage with a shimmering backdrop also was absolutely breathtaking. Guests took it to the photo booth from I Love Flipbook to create memories of their own. DJ Scoop of Desijunction churned out the latest Bollywood hits and curated the perfect playlist for the guests. The catering menu of the night was specialized in house and Therese Cole Hubbs truly designed the ultimate blueprint for a fab sangeet event. Head into the gallery captured by Nida Rehman Photography alongside Inspired Effects who got in on all the live action.
