Happy Tuesday, Maharanis! If you were seeking for bridal inspiration, you've come to the right place! Today, we are double featuring Nikkee & Suraj's big wedding celebration, and believe us; you will love it. We have the marvelous shots below, captured by Asaad Images. And if that is not enough, you can also enjoy the cinematographic delight by Riant Films featured in today's Video Blog. We are starting our journey by taking a look at the process our gorgeous Maharani went through so she could have the ultimate bridal look she always wanted for her big day. And oh boy, we loved the exquisite makeup and the sleek hairstyle designed by Simply Makeup & Hair. It was unbelievable! Padma Patel complemented this dazzling look with an artistic Mehndi, adding an extra touch of traditional flair to the overall look. Once Nikkee was fully glamorized, it was time to carry on with the two wedding ceremonies hosted at the Savannah Center. The halls of this venue transformed into a magical setting reminiscent of the interiors of an Indian palace, thanks to the perfect planning and fabulous decor crafted by B3 Event Management. After the wedding ceremonies, a vibrant reception party took place. And we wish we would have been there as everyone had the time of their lives celebrating the newlyweds and dancing to the beats of DJ Samir Productions. For dinner time, all the guests enjoyed the mouth-melting plates prepared by Tandoor, right before having a bite at the delicious cake baked by Cakes by Reva. You can always be transported back into this magical celebration of love by taking a look at the jaw-dropping shots we have compiled in today's gallery!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Suraj during my first year of college. For him, it was love at first sight but I didn’t know at the time. He was always so quiet and mysterious. We slowly started texting and I would get butterflies when I saw his name. When I first heard his laugh, I knew he was special. His laugh is so infectious! Then, one random day, he wrote me a poem. And that was it.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After 6 years of dating, we came back to our small college town for our medical school commencement ball. The day before, we were planning to get a nice dinner together. On the way, he decided to go to the park we used to always take walks in. He had our friend, Yoseph, set up 6 pictures of us throughout the park to represent our years together. At each picture, Suraj beautifully told me one (of the many) reasons he loves me. At the end, he got down on one knee and popped the question. It was perfect.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part of the process was going to India and shooting our pre-wedding video. We spent the day at the farm and Suraj got to drive a tractor around. We had so much fun with the whole day and felt like Bollywood actors!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Not sure about our guests but Suraj and I definitely enjoyed our reception the most. Suraj’s brother, Sagar, and my basically sister, Manisha organized such a wonderful night. They got all our families and friends to put together dances depicting how Suraj and I fell in love. They somehow also managed to teach Suraj a surprise dance for me. It was perfect.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment was when I was walking down the aisle with my uncles and brothers at my side. I saw my grandma dancing, my parents’ eyes filled with emotions and my husband-to-be anxiously waiting for me. After all the stresses of planning and making sure everything was perfect, it was happening! It was the most beautiful moment that I’ll never forget.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
You will spend countless of hours planning and making sure everything goes perfect. On the day of, take a breath and just enjoy the day (as impossible as it may seem). Only you will notice all the small things that aren’t going as planned.
That is all for today, darlings! Stay home, be safe, and don't forget to join us tomorrow for a new lovely story!
