Pearl River, NY Indian Wedding by Hugo Juarez Photography

We are so excited to share Vibha and Jwalin’s Indian reception gala. Before the event began, the couple spent some time taking lovely pics around their Hilton Pearl River venue. This private time was so special, since the couple could revel in each other’s company before the bustle of the event began. Plus, Hugo Juarez Photography captured some amazing shots that we’re sure the couple will cherish forever! As we entered the reception ballroom, we saw that the blush hues from the couple’s ceremony carried over, and the design gurus at LAX States whipped up some dreamy pastel decor. Everything from the frosted four tiered cake by A Little Cake to the chiffon stage drapings were tinged with pink. With so many sparkles and pink touches, the wedding looked like every girl’s dream come true. Through we adored so many design elements, we especially fell in love with the hardcover books decorating the stage. We thought it was such a whimsical touch and such a clever way to incorporate a shared hobby of the couple’s into the reception decor! Hats off to the planning and design experts at Ring to Aisle Events and LAX States for contributing to such a beautiful event. Vibha once again looked like a goddess in a navy and pink lehenga with a dazzling beauty look created by Sonia C. The couple took everyone’s breath away during their elegant first dance, followed by an incredible program with music and lighting by DJ Vik. Guests chowed down on decadent catering by Sapthagiri and Jewel of India. Then, everyone got down on the dance floor until the wee hours of the morning! Maharanis, peruse the full gallery  for all the joyous photos captured by Hugo Juarez Photography.

Pearl River, NY Indian Wedding by Hugo Juarez Photography

We just love fairytale weddings, and Vibha and Jwalin’s Indian wedding ticked all the boxes for a dream come true bash. From our initial glimpse of their ethereal pink mandap designed by LAX States, we knew this fresh and breezy event would be one of our faves. We are a huge fan of the gauzy, glittery fabric used to embellish their mandap, and the pastel drapings against the lush green outdoors created such a striking look. The stage was studded with fresh, sunset hued blooms, and we couldn’t imagine a more beautiful setting to get married in! In order to create such a dreamy atmosphere, Vibha and Jwalin brought in planning and design extraordinaires from Ring to Aisle Events and LAX States. They also brought in DJ Vik to make sure their bash had the perfect energy, lighting, and melodies. Of course, the most beautiful part of this wedding was the so in love couple. Maharani Vibha was a vision in a unique jungle green and red lehenga that made her look like a regal queen. Her bouffant updo and shimmering makeup was expertly applied by Sonia C, and Vibha radiated an aura of loveliness throughout the proceedings. The magical photos captured by Hugo Juarez Photography are loaded up in our full gallery, and we promise that you’ll want to look through all the loveliness to gather inspiration for your own wedding soiree!

Costa Mesa, CA Wedding by Lin & Jirsa Photography

Maharanis, we now enter the Avenue of the Arts venue for Anjali and Atul’s dazzling reception gala! The decorations by Dream Decor were every bride’s wedding fantasies come true, with glittering gold tapestries highlighted with shimmering Barbie pink accents! To complete the glamorous picture were tons of blush hued florals, chandeliers, and a mouthwatering three tiered cake by Simply Sweet Cakery that perfectly matched the surroundings! As impressive as the ambiance was, nothing compared to the gorgeous newlyweds! We applaud Maharani Anjali’s unique jungle green gown by Frontier Heritage. Jungle green is such a unique color that we don’t see too often on brides, but wish the hue would be chosen more often since it’s so beautiful! Plus Anjali stood out so perfectly against the soft surroundings in her bold color choice. Once again, Dolled up By Lulu created a bombshell hair and makeup look for Anjali that included loose curls, a sultry cat eye, and petal pink lips. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when the newlyweds performed their emotional first dance, followed by a multitude of touching speeches and dances from their loved ones! Guests then feasted to their hearts’ content with a gourmet meal by Vishnu Restaurant and Catering. Soon after, DJ Sukh opened up the dance floor with his infectious Bollywood rhythms, and guests swarmed the newlyweds with their best moves! The party raged on until the wee hours of morning, and we can’t stop looking at all the fun photos in the full gallery by Lin & Jirsa Photography!

Costa Mesa, CA Wedding by Lin & Jirsa Photography

Today we travel to sunny SoCal where Anjali and Atul were married in a joyful ceremony followed by a swanky reception gala at the Avenue of the Arts Hotel. Further beautifying the elegant surroundings was the visionary team from Dream Decor, who always come up with stunning design concepts to elevate a space to its full glam potential! Their efforts were apparent in the divine outdoor ceremony setup that included a regal red and gold mandap dripping in crystals and lush florals. The natural light shining down on the proceedings highlighted the beautiful couple, and we couldn’t imagine a more picture perfect ceremony! We also have to spend some time raving about Maharani Anjali’s impeccable bridal look! She was adorned in sparkly Badgley Mischka heels, an elaborate kundan maang tikka and necklace, and a ruby red lehenga by Frontier Heritage. Topping off the look was her radiant makeup and a classic updo by the always incredible Dolled up By Lulu. We loved how happy Raja Atul was when he first caught a glimpse of his glamorous bride. These two look made for each other! Atul slid into his sleek Mustang convertible from Classic Mustang Rentals for his banging baraat with dhol performed by DJ Sukh. They lovebirds reunited under the mandap and were married surrounded by SoCal sunshine and the love of all their nearest and dearest! Peruse the full gallery by Lin & Jirsa Photography for all the beautiful photos! We’ll be covering Anjali and Atul’s glittering reception in a jiffy, so we’ll see you later this morning with all the deets!

New Jersey Indian Wedding by A.S. Nagpal Photography

New Jersey weddings always feature such amazing venues and decor, and Trisha & Sanju's NJ reception was no exception! In our last post, we discussed the couple's stunning SoCal wedding ceremony and reception that resembled a colorful floral paradise thanks to Synx Events. Their reception was also breathtaking, and took place at the majestic Royal Albert's Palace which features such amazing architecture and ornate details. It was the perfect backdrop for the couple to celebrate their newlywed status with their loved ones on the East Coast! It was also fitting that in the palatial atmosphere, Trisha & Sanju truly resembled a Maharani and Maharaja. Check out the striking photos by A.S. Nagpal Photography in the gallery to see what we mean! We can't wait to see the reception film created by Ambrosial Films! Sanju wore an impeccably tailored tux, while Trisha wore a stunning pink and black lehenga. Her look was further elevated by her perfectly polished hair and makeup and a beautiful crystal headpiece. The hall was decked out with purple and green uplighting and lush florals, with a grand pink and white cake by Chocol8 Kiss serving as a beautiful centerpiece. We are in awe of all the beauty that was present at Trisha & Sanju's wedding celebrations! We wish the couple all the happiness in the world! Please check out the full gallery below for more wedding inspiration! And for all the behind the scenes deets, scroll down for our interview with Maharani Trisha!

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 wedding planning began with the coordinator who also did my sisters wedding a few years earlier. Synx events took care of all of the decorations and planning for all of my events. I knew from the start that I wanted an outdoor Sikh wedding so that was where my search began. We looked at dozens of venues and finally chose Almansor Court as it was the most accommodating for our amount of guests, had a gorgeous lake next to the gazebo, and was also not too far away.

Planning hair and makeup wasn't a tough choice as my bridal and sangeet makeup artist happened to be my cousin who is very well known and popular in the Northern California area. I didn't think twice about hiring her for my special day as I have seen her work numerous times and know how great she is. I chose to have Dolled up by LuLu do my hair and makeup for my reception based off of recommendations from many people.

The theme for my venue was simple for me because I knew what I had wanted for a long time. In my mind I wanted my wedding to be extremely colorful and outdoor, and for the reception I wanted a starry night-midnight blue theme. My sangeet theme was more moroccan and colorful as well which I let Synx events create without my telling. I was very very pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

Our photography in PA was done by Amandeep Nagpal and videography with Ambrosial Films. We did our music video in Philadelphia and they did such an amazing job. We loved our teaser video and we debuted our actual music video on the day of our reception. Our family loved it!

Our Punjabi style engagement shoot was shot in New Jersey. We were blown away with his skill. We actually knew immediately we wanted him to do this for us as well as pictures for our second reception because he has an amazing sense of direction with his photos.

We hired Chatha Productions for our Videography/Photography in Los Angeles because we are family friends with Sonu Chatha and have seen a lot of his work. He also did our second engagement shoot which was done in LA. We loved the way that shoot turned out as well.

One of the best decisions we made was hiring SoundNation for our DJ services. Vik Dhillon was the easiest person to coordinate with. He did everything exactly as asked and was a crowd pleaser. We had one meeting prior to the wedding week and he did exactly what we wanted without hesitation. He was awesome to work with.

Overall, like any wedding, planning was long and drawn out but I had the greatest people to work with. I was very pleased with our decor at all of our events. It was such a special day!

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

For my outfits, I had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted well before the wedding. I knew that I did not want a red or pink outfit, and chose to go with a vibrant royal blue with multi colored areas. I felt this would stand out really well in an outdoor wedding and I loved the outcome! I also was set on having an anarkali style wedding outfit versus a lengha or salwar kameez.

For my starry night reception, I chose to wear a backless baby pink gown with a lot of gold glitter and shimmer as I knew it would go well with the theme. I decided to put my hair to the side to show off the back part of the outfit. For the final reception in New Jersey, I wanted to wear a lengha and had my heart set on a blue and pink color scheme with velvet. Luckily I found the perfect lengha on my last day in India in Patiala!

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

The best part of the planning process was the last few meetings with my coordinator and seeing that things were coming together. Seeing the layouts of what the venues would look like and especially seeing the set-up of the house on the day of the Sangeet blew my mind! I had a vision about everything and it was just a beautiful thing to see it come together. Planning a wedding is tough, especially with the groom across the country, but once all of the pieces were slowing fitting it was the best feeling ever.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests really loved the outdoor aspect of the wedding and the attention to detail at all of our events. We had coaches come and transport our guests to each event, we had every detail well thought out as far as decor and we had everything start in a timely fashion. In addition, we had a lot of great feedback on the food we chose for all of our events-- even our Taco Truck on Mendhi night!

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

I have a few special moments but some of the best ones was watching everyone watch our music video laughing and smiling, my speech on the reception, when our family spoke for us on our reception, and when I was walking down the aisle seeing everyone smiling back. I still think about it 6 months later.

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.

Our Sangeet was a colorful Moroccan theme with hanging lights, a colorful stage and a Rickshaw photo area. We had colorful tents set up with the food and our Gazebo was filled with marigolds hanging everywhere. Sanju and his family arrived and were greeted at the front and then the party began. My brother in law and I performed a few memorable songs that Sanju and I really like as a surprise, which really surprised everybody. Sanju surprised me with a beautiful poem about how we met and our future together. My best friend said a speech that brought the room to tears. It was filled with a lot of drinking, dancing, Jago and mingling with Sanju’s side of the family that much of my family hadn't met yet.

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

My words of wisdom would be to definitely hire a planner to take a load off of you, if you can. DELEGATE to family members, friends, whoever is willing to do things because when you try to take too many things on it becomes tough. Also! As for wedding outfits go, when you like something BUY IT! Don't always assume you may find something better. I bought my wedding and one reception outfit on the day I landed in Delhi and it was the best decision ever.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

We chose to do cupcakes instead of a tiered cake and it was a hit! Everybody was eating them and loved the idea--especially since we had a few different flavors.

So lovely! We'll see you tomorrow with another incredible wedding!
