Romantic Virginia Indian Wedding

We are starting off the week with a love story SO sweet that it will take you back to elementary school.  Our bride and groom’s affection started in grade school, and from the looks of their romantic Indian wedding, the fairytale is just beginning.  This glamorous affair was all beautifully captured by Keith Cephus Photography, and artfully designed by Partyland Flower and Events. 


From our Maharani, Anjali :

Shishir and I have had crushes on each since we were in grade school.  He still remembers me as “cute” back then- I had frizzy hair, plastic glasses, and braces!  I remember him as a nice boy who didn’t make fun of my hair, glasses, braces, and the fact I stood a foot taller than all of the other girls my age.  Shishir lived in Pennsylvania and me in Virginia.  We kept meeting every two years or so because our families are good friends.  In 2000, Shishir and I saw each other all “grown-up” and the rest is history.  He even took me to my senior prom!  Our relationship remained long distance through undergrad, work, Shishir’s move to Charlotte. NC.  Once I finished nursing school, I moved down to Charlotte as we both thought it was time to take our relationship more seriously.  We were officially engaged in June of 2009. Shishir proposed to me on our “engagementversary” in 2010.   I never knew what path our relationship would take but I have always known that we would spend our lives together.  I can’t think of a stronger, more passionate love that we share for each other.  Each willing to sacrifice so the other can be happy.  Each encouraging the other to keep striving to be happy & healthy.  Each just totally in love with the other for who they really are. 

Keith Cephus Photography has a magical way of capturing Indian wedding.  The lighting and mood of Keith's romantic photography style is absolutely perfect for these sweethearts!  

Last chance to finish up your homework assignment Maharanis.  If you haven't cleaned your engagement ring yet, grab a toothbrush, grab some windex and meet us back here in an hour!  Be right back!


Virginia Hindu Wedding Ceremony

Do you remember our cute Maharani Reema from last year? Remember the one with the gorgeous turquoise and pink bridal lengha, stunning eyes, and Ah-mazing mandap?!  Well, you will never believe this, but after she got married, she ran off, became a wedding planner, and she coordinated today’s Virginia Indian wedding! I mean, when you find something you love and are good at, you should go for it!

So we promised a contest, and so I have one for you coming up next!

Show us your Sparkler!

Okay Maharanis!  We are interrupting this beautiful Virginia Indian wedding for an all important contest announcement!

The only two diet tricks that I learned during my pre-wedding prep that I still hold onto two years later. Drink more water and cut out sugar & artificial sweeteners.  These two little gems help me keep unnecessary pounds away and seem to be the only two that I can stick to in my {social} life.  Well, this leaves my list of things to drink very short and boring, so I was thrilled when I found Hiball!

Hiball Sparkling Energy Water is the only energy drink in the world that doesn’t have sugar or sweeteners of any kind. They are all natural, have no carbs, and absolutely no preservatives.  And, with only 10 calories per bottle, they are the perfect little pick up before your morning run or your evening yoga class. 

So, we have teamed up with Hiball and one lucky Maharani is going to win a $300 gift certificate to Whole Foods!  I mean, what could be more perfect that to stock your fridge with healthy, delicious foods, AND Hiball before your pre-wedding prep?  All you have to do to enter to win is head over to the Maharani Weddings Facebook Page and upload a picture of your *sparkler* with a bottle of Hiball Sparkling Energy Water.  And, leave a comment letting us know what you love about that flavor of Hiball.

The contest runs between now and April 29, 2011, and one lucky Maharani will be picked at random to win, so enter today!

Good luck Maharanis!


Chic Virginia Indian Wedding

We are winding down a fabulously fun Monday on Maharani Weddings. It's hard to be surprised when rock star vendors like Keith Cephus Photography and Partyland Flowers and Events were in charge of this flawless day. But, what I particularly ja'adore about this reception is it's timeless style. It's the perfect combination of chic Bollywood meets traditional details. Love it!


Congratulations to the darling pair and huge thanks to all the vendors!
