Dublin, CA Indian Wedding by American Photobank

We now join Anisha and Nakul as their ceremony begins! The setting was picture-perfect for the emotional affair, with clear skies, and a sun that set perfectly behind the mandap. Family and friends were thrilled when Anisha and Nakul were pronounced husband and wife, and couldn't wait to get the party going for the newlyweds' reception! Ajooba created a purple paradise in the Bay Club Santa Clara. The floor to ceiling lavender draping and crystal garlands were the perfect backdrop for American Photobank to snap shots of the newlyweds and their guests! We loved Anisha's sophisticated, royal blue gown with gold embellishments and Nakul's suit and bow tie - they both glowed with happiness! Jhakaas Entertainment kept emotions high with their incredible lighting and music, and guests swarmed the jam-packed dance floor! We don't know if we've seen a happier-looking group rocking out on the dance floor! Guests also raved about the rich and flavorful dinner catered by Jay Bharat and the treats by Cake Delight. You can browse the complete gallery for more photos from this amazing event! Also, make sure to check out our interview below with Maharani Anisha - It's full of amazing behind the scenes details!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

I met Nakul on the popular dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel! I knew he was "the one" from the day we first met! He was so fun, caring, and such a genuine person, I could not imagine finding a better life partner.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Nakul had been planning the proposal hoping that he could have the entire family and our closest friends by his side. After several weeks, he decided to throw his dad a surprise 60th birthday party and incorporate a second surprise - our proposal! Our proposal took place at the beautiful Dante Robere winery in Livermore, CA (my hometown!). Nakul had our friends wear red shirts that spelled out "Will You Marry Me?" It was very sweet and thoughtful, I had a hard time containing my happiness that day!

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

Food tastings were a joy! It was so fun to be able to sample the food our guests were going to enjoy at our events.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests thoroughly enjoyed each event! We made sure to have amazing food, music, and environments. In choosing our venues, I knew I wanted to have as much of an outdoor feel as possible, and I got that with both our wedding venue (completely outdoors) and our reception venue (indoor with an outdoor feel). Mehul did a great job with music, and he was very patient with us making sure he understood our music choice. Our food vendors were flexible and incorporated our feedback into their dishes to deliver the tastes and flavors we wanted our guests to experience. Ajooba (decorator) did a flawless job with decor - Tammy is incredible. She is very creative, experienced, and imaginative.

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

Walking down the aisle at my wedding was such a surreal feeling! That was the moment I truly felt that today was the day I was going to marry my better half!

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

Things will always work out at the end for the best! For me, the planning process was easy, and I think it's because I had the openness and flexibility for things to change or be different than what I had imagined/expected. It's important to be easy-going!

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

The jewelry I wore at my events were a combination of my choices and a few family heirlooms. My bridal mehndi was done by Neeta Sharma, and it was amazing! She did a great job, and it turned out better than I imagined. What I particularly loved about her was her attention to detail, her professionalism, and ways she tailored the designs for me. She even incorporated the Coffee Meets Bagel logo after hearing about how Nakul and I met! The guest mehndi was done by Threads Beauty Bar & Spa (located in Dublin) and they were phenomenal! They are very experienced with guest henna and it shows in their professionalism, friendliness, and timeliness. Much needed when trying to manage so many guests! Our venues as I mentioned before were amazing. The wedding took place at the Dublin Ranch Golf Course during sunset, which gave our wedding a beautiful and natural backdrop. The reception venue was indoors but incorporated outdoor aspects such as a creek, trees, and other greenery. We decided to skip the cake, and order cupcakes for everyone to enjoy based on individual tastes! This turned out great and gave us a way to share our story and implement Coffee Meets Bagel into our wedding.

Have a great day Maharanis!

Dublin, CA Indian Wedding by American Photobank

Sunny, outdoor weddings are always such a chic choice, and we loved this one photographed by American Photobank that took place at the Dublin Ranch Golf Club. Everything about this wedding was vibrant and fresh, beginning with the bright orange-red of Maharani Anisha's wedding lehenga, to the airy mandap by Ajooba. We loved some of the cool touches the couple incorporated in their celebrations, such as the sunglasses hanging on each ceremony chair as a keepsake for guests - so practical and fun! We also loved the cupcake display by Cake Delight and classic bottled Coca-Colas being tray-passed before the ceremony began - we're sure guests were buzzing with sugar highs after consuming these delicious treats! Anisha and Nakul's guests definitely know how to strike a move, and Nakul led a spirited baraat with dhol and entertainment by the magnetic Jhakaas EntertainmentAnisha looked like a perfect, traditional bride as she made her grand ceremony entrance, adorned in polished hair and makeup by Megha Patel and impressively detailed henna by Neeta Sharma at Mehndi Designer. Maharanis, please check back in a few hours when we cover the couple's beautiful ceremony and reception!

Montego Bay, Jamaica Destination Wedding by MaxPhoto NY

Welcome back Maharanis! With the cold weather that's recently hit parts of the country, these sunny wedding photos by MaxPhoto NY are exactly the antidote we all need to take us into Spring! In our last post, we detailed Tasha and Vinny’s wedding celebrations that began in New York and were planned and designed by Platinum Celebrations. We now move on to their ceremony in Jamaica, in which many of the couple’s closest family and friends traveled to celebrate the beloved couple in the gorgeous oceanfront Iberostar Rose Hall Suites. The ceremony featured so many adorable touches, such as the precious flower girl and ring bearer, romantic bouquets by Floral Fantasy, and our favorite detail, Vinny’s Batman cuff links! The moving ceremony couldn’t have been more picture perfect, and was followed with one of our favorite beach photos ever - An overhead shot of all the guests in a heart formation! Too adorable! The couple then posed for a series of editorial-worthy yet playful portraits by MaxPhoto NY in which Tasha’s gown and veil by The Wedding Plaza billowed gracefully in the ocean breeze. Both look so happy and in love in every photo! Next, we join the couple and their guests at their sunset-drenched outdoor reception, which featured Steel Pan Music provided by Iberostar Rose Hall Suites, lovely speeches, a photo booth by MaxPhoto NY, and island/Bollywood beats by DJ Kevaun. This celebration was one for the ages, and we guarantee you’ll feel refreshed after taking a look at the complete gallery.

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!
