It's Friday, Maharanis, and that means you can officially count the minutes until the weekend starts! To help you breeze through your day, we've got a glammed-out and gorgeous outdoor Texas wedding that's filled with lush, natural beauty. MnMfoto Wedding Photography snaps pics of our lovely bride as she poses in a sensational gold, emerald, and ruby lengha that can only be described as breathtaking. Just look at the glittering detail! Her flawless hair and makeup by Singar Studio is 100 percent perfection; she looks like a dream worthy of the red carpet. And the decor by Bisli Event Services is equally over-the-top opulent with incredible floral arrangements and sparkling chandeliers. Everything about this spectacular soiree exudes luxury and I'm so inspired that I have to see each pic in the gallery!
From the bride: "We wanted out wedding to be intimate yet elegant and fun. I wanted to have colors—but very soft and romantic tones. And which better color to start with than PINK!! We chose a red and champagne decor theme for the ceremony as it goes very well with the traditional theme and pink with purple hues for the reception to create the subtle yet romantic look. I think both color combinations worked perfectly for us. Also we matched our wedding and reception outfits with the color schemes that we had selected for both our events.
I think planning the wedding was a tiresome yet fun process. It brought us close together as a family and helped us understand a little bit more about each other. Understanding what everyone liked and how to make it work with the selected themes - was a challenging process. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law helped us a lot in planning and having the dream wedding that we wanted.
Just like any other girl, I had a vision about how my wedding dress should look like. I wasted many hours online, went to many stored in New York and New Jersey but they all had the same kind of glittery stuff with stones which I did not want at all. But luckily, on one of the weekends - I was able to attend designers Shyamal and Bhumika's wedding exhibition in NJ. I mixed and matched the lehenga/dupatta/choli from different outfits and just fell in love with the green/deep red/cream color combination with tons of zari and peta work on it. It was just the PERFECT dream dress that I had always wanted. They worked with me and we discussed changes over the internet, exchanged pictures of suggestions and designs, or colors etc. And finally my dress was delivered to me by courier in three months. I couldn't have been any happier.
I had seen many YouTube videos of what kind of bridal makeup and hairdos are in. And it made me real uneasy to look at some of the videos where the makeup was looking so unnatural—and way too colorful. However, I am glad to say, my makeup artist, Leena from Singar Studio, did such an amazing job. I was blown away when I saw myself in the mirror after I was all done. At the end, everything just matched perfectly—the dress, makeup, jewelery, color of my wedding bangles...everything.
We had made an online wedding website and we chose the Instrumental version of "Gurh naalon Isha Mitha." The combination of flute music and happy fun music just gave a very good vibe and everyone loved it. So we chose the same song [for our first dance].
I think without the support of our families and friends we could not have done this. They helped us in planning every little detail and stood by our decisions and supported us all the way through. We are blessed to have such great people around us.
We chose Kendall Plantation in Boerne Texas as our Venue. We wanted to have an outside wedding ceremony and Reception inside the Hall and there couldn't have been a better location than Kendall to do this. Everyone loved it.
The most magical moment for me was towards the end of the wedding...the moment when we took a step back and realized that all our hard work had paid off. We couldn't help but smile at each other. It was truly magical. Like God's blessings were with us and everything just came together."
Fairy tales do come true! See you on Monday, Maharanis!
