MW: Why Miami, and why Miami for Indian Weddings?

Sonal J. Shah: Miami has a beautiful, outdoor environment. The city is alive, the beaches are gorgeous, and the weather is great as well. Miami is great for Indian weddings for these exact reasons. You can have an Indian wedding anywhere indoors and make it look beautiful, but having an Indian ceremony in Miami creates a wonderful, natural backdrop for the Mandap that you cannot attain with an indoor ceremony.

MW: What are some of the beautiful feature of the property at the Loews?

Sonal J Shah: The Loews has a lush, grass lawn that is perfect to hold a ceremony. They also have a nice pool to relax by and a 28,000 square foot ballroom with floor to ceiling windows and a beautiful view of South Beach.

MW: What was the inspiration behind this shoot?

Sonal J Shah: The inspiration behind this shoot was white orchids, creams, and an ombre of pinks. We wanted to take advantage of the beautiful outdoors as well as showcase the creativity of the amazing vendors.

MW: How did you choose the vendors for this project?

Sonal J Shah: We like to work with the best of the best and the vendors that we chose to work with have beautiful work as well as a professionalism like no other.

MW: We love the peacock, where did that idea come from?

Sonal J Shah: We just gave Xquisite our colors and inspiration. The rest was up to them. It is amazing how much creativity these vendors have when they have the opportunity to showcase their best work.

MW: We see that this palette is ombre blush, is ombre a trend that is here to stay?

Sonal J Shah: I would say so. Ombre is such a great trend because it adds a lot of color without having to worry about colors clashing. I think the idea of sticking with a monochromatic color scheme and taking advantage of the different shades and tones of one color enhances the beauty of the designs. Rather than the color being the focus, it becomes more of a factor in a well designed event.

So fascinating to hear all the behind the scenes deets for this stunning event. Peruse all the styled editorial photographs in the full gallery. Thank you so much Sonal!

San Diego, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Bill Rice Photo

We have thoroughly enjoyed each and every event showcasing the love of Shruti and Leo captured by Bill Rice Photo. Now we’re getting down to the wedding and reception details, and as expected, each image has us wishing we had received an invite! The bride was a walking masterpiece after being beautified by the hands of Melissa Edwards and Glam and Glow. For her wedding day, dewy makeup and natural waves were the look of choice. Shruti and Leo glowed under the sunny SoCal skies as they vowed to love each other forever. For the reception, long locks and a burgundy anarkali adorned the newly minted bride. Adelaide's created the whimsical design details at the Museum of Man that was full of flora and fauna grandeur. Throughout the wedding weekend, an all-star cast of entertainers kept the party rocking, such as G2 Entertainment, Justin Kanoya, and the Gloria Lanuza Dance Company. So much fun! Flour Power whipped up a multitude of sweet treats that’s making us crave some sugar. Guests danced the night away with sangeet DJ G2 Entertainment and reception DJ Justin Kanoya curating the perfect playlists. We absolutely cannot wait to share the cinematography highlights captured by Time Code Media. Until then, soak in all the whimsical stylings of this breezy wedding in our full gallery.

San Diego, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Bill Rice Photo

It’s always a special treat witnessing an Indian bride get ready for the most important moment of her life: Her fairy tale walk down the aisle to her Raja. This special time includes some serene, reflective moments in anticipation of an exciting new journey. Bill Rice Photo captured lovely portraits of Maharani Shruti while she was adorned by the talented hands of Melissa Edwards and Glam and Glow. They did a fantastic job creating the final bombshell look, and as we always say: a happy, beautiful bride equals a happy, beautiful wedding! Shruti donned a sweeping ruby red sari, artistic mehndi, and was breathtaking in her beauty. Her finishing touch was a beautifully blooming bouquet of white roses. And we are completely obsessed with the turquoise bridesmaids saris the main Maharani chose for her special girls. Scarlet against turquoise results in such an aesthetically stunning contrast! During Shruti and Leo’s first look, they couldn’t take their eyes off one another, and we can’t blame them. This is just the sneak peek of all the upcoming wedding fun. In our next post, we’ll dive into all the sentimental ceremony and reception action. In the meantime, peruse the full gallery by Bill Rice Photo to your heart’s content!
