Baltimore, MD Indian Wedding by Lin & Jirsa Photography

Our hearts are exploding with joy as we peruse through a wonderful Indian wedding captured by Lin & Jirsa Photography. Beena and Jay’s sensational weekend concluded with their reception soiree that epitomized romance. The Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport was transformed into a magical wonderland by Liz Decorations who bedazzled every corner of the space in sparkling lights, lush flower arrangements, and intricate draping. The flora and fauna creatively incorporated into the decor gives us so much inspiration! Beena donned a flowing, champagne anarkali and was the radiant center of attention the whole night. Meanwhile, her dapper groom was handsome in a tailored tux. When guests trickled into the ballroom, a towering, floral adorned cake baked to perfection by Raksha's Custom Cakes was a scrumptious centerpiece. (We're loving the "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" topper. Too cute!) We wish we could reach into the screen and grab a delectable slice! As the evening came to a close, M4U Events rocked the night with the latest beats and kept guests on the dance floor. Don’t take our word for it! Head into the full gallery by Lin & Jirsa Photography for all the fun!

Baltimore, MD Indian Wedding by Lin & Jirsa Photography

We love Indian weddings that are full of pomp and dazzle, and Beena and Jay’s celebration at the Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport didn't miss a beat. Jay’s baraat was a wild and crazy ride led by M4U Events who ensured that every family member was dancing while making their grand entrance! We adore so many details of Indian weddings, but our absolute fave moment has to be the unveiling of the bride. Beena was the most charming of Maharanis in her chocolate lehenga, with sultry makeup and an elegant ‘do by Makeup by Mala. We couldn’t help but smile while looking through the photos of her gracefully gliding down the aisle. Also, we noticed that handsome Jay’s sherwani featured colors and embroidery that perfectly matched his bride. These coordinated ensembles were such a great touch and photographed beautifully together. The couple took their vows under a circular, golden mandap designed by Liz Decorations. We were huge fans of the red floral arrangements and the gold leaf mandap details. The post ceremony photos were absolutely gorgeous as well, as the newlyweds were showered in a garden of rose petals and whisked away in a classic set of wheels. We have all the wonderful memories tucked away in our gallery captured by the incredible Lin & Jirsa Photography.

Hurry back Maharanis! Reception deets (including a gorg cake by Raksha's Custom Cakes) coming right up!

Spartanburg, SC, Fusion Wedding by Sol Basconcillo Photography

To be completely honest, Sonia and Jason’s wedding compelled us to pause and take a closer look at each click by Sol Basconcillo Photography. The effort put into blending various elements of the couple’s diverse cultural backgrounds clearly showed. One such was Sonia’s bridal outfit. “I knew I wanted something off white, and I wanted it to be more of an Indian style length rather than a dress. Beyond that, I was utterly confused as to what I wanted.” However, Panache by Sharmeen was Sonia’s knight in shining armor, who after several sketches perfected the fully customized outfit. It was the best of both worlds, with an intricate gold bodice, a tulle embroidered veil, and a white lengha with a tulle overlay. We still can’t get over the fact that Cotton Rouge dolled up Sonia in less than an hour, because Sonia looked absolutely ethereal. After a traditional ceremony at St Paul the Apostle, the couple and their party were all set to party the night away at Marriott Spartanburg. It was at the reception where we realized what a dream team K.Scott Weddings and Aayojan is! We are head over heels for the mint, sea green, navy blue, and gold color scheme at this reception. It was truly the perfect mix of elegant, chic, and experimental. Aayojan adorned the ballroom with white floral arrangements, giving the whole event a refined look. Visit the gallery to check out all the curated photos from this elegant fete!

In case you missed it, catch the film rendition of this fusion affair here! We caught up with Maharani Sonia to learn all about her wedding planning and other exciting tidbits:

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We actually had two friends that were dating. One of my best friends from college was dating his friend from high school and when he met me, he thought that we would be a perfect match! Turns out he was right and from day one I realized I really liked him. I think I knew he was "the one" when he met my brother and they got along as if they had known each other for years. It only took them about ten minutes after they met each other to start ganging up on me!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I’m one of those lucky girls that got the proposal story that people will probably be telling for years. It was actually Jason’s birthday and I had planned a whole weekend of nice dinners and fun festivals with some friends but little did I know they all had something else planned. I started the weekend visiting my best friend while waiting for Jason to get into town. We had lunch, some champagne, when she told me she had a house down at the beach she wanted to show me. I, of course, didn’t think anything of it (even when she insisted on doing my hair and makeup to get ready for the night) and we got in her car to head to this “house.” After “passing” the house several times and making several U-turns into the same parking lot for the third time, I noticed someone that vaguely resembled my brother pop out of the bushes. Even then, I just thought he was there to surprise Jason for his birthday. It wasn’t until I saw our good friend, Sol, who also happens to be a photographer, come out from no where did I realize there was probably something big going on. At that point, my big brother led me out of the car and down the beach to where I saw Jason waiting. He gave me a hug and probably said some really sweet things to me but to this day, I have no idea what he said. I do, however, remember observing that he actually had his shirt tucked in for once. I wish I could describe how I felt in that moment when he asked me to marry him but I don’t think there’s a single word that could describe the amount of happiness and love I felt at that moment. 

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 lucked out in that my best friend is in the wedding planning business. She helped me keep track of what all I needed to do and when it needed to get done. And then I found my amazing wedding planner Keisha who made everything so insanely easy for me! She lined up meetings with my venue and communicated with all of my vendors so I did not have to. As far as my decor theme, I knew I wanted something simple. Sarita was amazing because she was able to give me what I wanted and work within our budget. She made it easy to plan once she knew the look I was going for and had an idea of what I wanted.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved the parts that I got to sit down with Jason and decide things. I'm sure every bride will say that weddings are stressful and overwhelming but it was in those moments where it was just the two of us talking about our wedding that it really felt real!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think most people would say that they loved the cultural diversity of it. So many of our friends had never been to an Indian wedding and loved the opportunity to dress up and take part in everything!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I would have to say that would have to be when I said my wedding vows. I just remember that I was already crying and I could barely get the words out while looking at Jason. There was definitely a feeling of overwhelming happiness in that moment.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to take a moment out during all the wedding craziness to just be with your new husband and really soak in that it's your day! Mine was during our first dance and it was the best feeling in the world!

Spartanburg, SC, Fusion Wedding by Sol Basconcillo Photography

For so many reasons (the #wickerpickedher hashtag being one of them), Sonia and Jason’s wedding just stuck with us ever since we watched the heartwarming highlight film by Zheng Chia Films. Orchestrated by the super talented team over at K.Scott Weddings, this fusion affair commenced on a cozy note with a Mehndi hosted at the bride’s house, followed by a vibrant Garba at Cleveland Park. The show stealer was Sol Basconcillo Photography, who captured the entire event thoroughly, in addition to the lovely portraits of the couple shot outdoors. The interplay between Sonia and Jason’s outfit colors, in combination with the picturesque outdoors made for a visual feast. We loved Sonia’s au courant orange embroidered crop top paired with a matching gold lehenga. It was sweet, tasteful, and super chic! The makeup would have been challenging for this one given the vibrancy of the color, but trust Cotton Rouge to do a stellar job nevertheless! The dewy glow with a soft smokey eye and relaxed beach waves accentuated Sonia’s look. Perhaps one of the best color pairing we have seen off late came about due to Jason’s purple raw silk bandhgala. Aayojan decked up Cleveland Park using a great combination of ethnic and contemporary elements. Antique gold candelabras, rose petals, and floating candles were situated in the center of the ballroom for the candle-lighting ritual. A dedicated lounging corner seemed like the perfect backdrop for photos, given the orange and white gathered drapes, embroidered bolsters on a pristine white cushion. Jhankar Group of Charlotte provided live music and beats for the night, that had the guests dancing all night. Simply Fresh 'N' Spicy catered yummy and exotic delicacies that everyone deliriously indulged in. Browse through the gallery especially if you fancy a bright color palette!

Dallas, TX Indian Wedding by Aaroneye Photo & Video

Happy Tuesday, my dears! Aaroneye Photo & Video delivered a gorgeous Indian wedding film to our inbox, and we couldn't wait to share it with you all! The bride and groom, Hetal and Dutt, celebrated their shaadi in Dallas, Texas, and we've been obsessed with the Indian bride's white wedding lengha ever since we laid eyes on it! The film opens up with mehndi night highlights that are sure to take your breath away, but the piece de resistance of this Indian wedding celebration has to be that bridal lengha (have you picked up on how much we love it?). Its stencil-cut design and glittery details just swept us off of our feet! We're also pretty smitten with Maharani Hetal's reception gown — a blue and gold lengha that dazzled at her post-ceremony soirée at  The Milestone. Check it out for yourself!

Maharani Hetal, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Dutt: 

"I met my Raja the first time back in the college days at University of Texas at Austin about 13 years ago and believe it or not, I had a crush on him. We than met again a few years later after college when he moved back to Dallas from Atlanta. Little did we know, he was only living 5 minutes away. As we started dating and I got to know him more, I realized he was the one when I got to see how caring and a sincere of a person he is. His sweet heart and love for his family and the bond they share made me fall even more in love with him."

On her engagement:

"I have a sweet engagement memory. My lease was about to end at my apartment and I had a few days left to pack and move out. We started dating when I was living at this apartment. My husband now, boyfriend at the time, was helping me the previous week and I was wondering why he is helping me so much during the week to finish packing. I had to work that Saturday so he called me before I got off and was seeing what time I would get home. He told me he was running some errands and for me to be ready downstairs at the gate he always picks me up at. I didn't ask questions and agreed. I go down the steps and I see a bouquet of flowers in his hands. As I walked out through the gate he gave me the flowers and said I'm sorry you had a bad day at work but there is something I'd like to tell you and ask you. He got down on his knees and he said we started our first chapter meeting at this gate and now I that you are moving out, I would to finish the first and start the second. I was started to tear up at this point and he said Hetal Mahendra Natha will you marry me and spend the rest of your life with me. I said yes, without a doubt."

On her wedding style:

"I really didn't have an idea of a dream wedding but as Dutt and I started looking we thought since we live in Texas it would be really cool to have an Indian wedding at a ranch to mix up both cultures. I was born in India and raised there until I was about 7. Dutt was born and raised in Dallas so it turned out to be a good mix of colors. The ranch had a big white mansion with big pillars on the outside. On the inside, there was a ceremony room with creams and a separate ballroom for the reception with windows everywhere. I did a peacock theme reception so the vibrant Indian colors popped very nicely with the creams and champagne colors of the ranch mansion. For the ceremony, I did royal blue, silver and red. My bridal bouquet was very colorful and bright as I wore a Ivory lengha."

On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:

"The process I enjoyed most about planning my wedding was to be able to go to India and go shopping for my wedding with my fiance. We were able to coordinate the outfits for each event. The cool thing about Indian weddings is that it is a few days of festivities. We kicked ours off with Mehndi night on Wednesday. Each event was hosted at a different venue some of which were at a family member's home so it was intimate and joyous."

On shopping for her wedding lengha(s):

"I did not spend much time on the internet looking for my lengha. So I planned to take a trip to India which I mentioned earlier and I knew the few places I wanted to go to for shopping in Mumbai. It can get pretty overwhelming going to India to do wedding shopping. I custom designed my lenghas from some that were already in the showrooms. I changed a few things. I wanted something different other than the traditional red. I choose an ivory white lengha with ruby red jewelry to incorporate the traditional red a Hindu bride wears. I spent about 2 weeks there!"

On her most magical wedding moment:

"My first look was the most magical moment for me because it brought tears in our eyes when we first saw each other in our wedding attire."

On the role that family and friends played:

"Family and friends helped out with festivities before the wedding day. They decorated the homes with colorful fabrics and decor."

Stick around for a look at one seriously sensational shaadi later today, my dears!
