Our next highlight reel is more like a short, romantic film. Raian Vo of Nebulous Dream shot this charming video that re-enacts the moment this Indian bride and groom met, all the way to their wedding day. Having the breathtaking San Francisco landscape in the backdrop is a nice little treat too! We're sure the wedding photos captured by JSK Photography must be just spectacular! Ajooba Events planned and designed this bride's dream wedding at the Hilton Concord, and Kalki Fashion was our Maharani's go-to for her bridal looks. When it came to hair and makeup, the blushing beauty called on Singar Studio to glam her up to picture perfection, and Leena Bajaj adorned her with a sensational mehndi design. She also enlisted the Vintage Carriage Company to help the Raja of her dreams arrive in style during his baraat procession. Press play now for some serious butterflies!
The bride, on her Rajas romantic proposal:
"What was supposed to be a touristy day in San Francisco with family from out of town, turned into the (second) best day ever (first best is the wedding day, of course). It started with the usual sites of SF, Treasure Island, Crooked St., Pier 39, and we decided to wind up the day with the infamous view of the Golden Gate Bridge. We went to the Vista point near Sausalito. It couldn't have been a more beautiful, fog-free view as the sun was setting. Ashar's cousins suddenly had to "take a phone call" so Ashar and I stood there alone, admiring the beauty of the bridge and the city behind it. The next thing I knew he was on one knee. Before he could even get the words out, "will you marry me?" I burst into tears. We heard a loud cheer, and saw that some of our family and friends were hiding in the background the entire time. The location could not have been more perfect since San Francisco is where I grew up, and where we met. It felt so surreal to actually be engaged to my best friend and soul mate."
On her wedding style:
"I wanted a traditional yet elegant look for our wedding that would highlight the two of us. I chose a palette of colors which consisted of pale pink, coral and fuchsia. It took me a while to figure out what I really liked in terms of colors, but once I did I was really pleased with the outcome."
On her most memorable wedding moment:
"I would have to say the moment Ashar and I joined hands at the Mandap, it really hit me. We were actually getting married! The both of us were overcome with emotion and it was a moment that was truly indescribable."
On the role family and friends played:
"Our families played a huge role in helping us put this wedding together. From doing the research to helping us execute all of the small details, they were there every step of the way, especially to help keep me calm during the planning process. I was truly able to take in all of the special and memorable moments and enjoy our wedding by trusting them to ensure everything ran smoothly. Our friends were amazing with all of their help and surprises during the reception. Ashar and I are surely blessed."
Stick around for another wedding delight!
