Good morning, ladies! A fabulous Friday is here, and I'd love to tell you all about the new romantic entry that belongs to Rhianna & Brandon's big day! These lovebirds planned a charming wedding in six months, and the results were excellent. They had a lovely Hindu and Christian ceremony in one day! After they promised to love each other, they hosted an enchanting reception at Montaluce Winery. It was the perfect setting to celebrate along with your beloved ones! The planning and design of their event were in charge of RHS Events. This team specializes in luxury weddings, and their passion helps you craft, execute, and elevate your once-in-a-lifetime magical event! Beautiful World Events decorated the venue with pretty flowers to make the place even more captivating! The music suited the ambiance perfectly. One Night Entertainment made everyone dance all night long! Our newlyweds ensured that every guest took a little souvenir, and nothing is better than a fun picture from the photobooth, Robotbooth provided. Before I tell you about our Maharani's dazzling looks, I want to share with the handsome grooms a little secret! If you're going to surprise your beautiful Maharani with a luxurious ring, you should visit Joseph Jewelry. I promise you will amaze her with the most exquisite jewelry! Now, let's go back to our lovely Rhianna. She wore a classy bridal gown from Pronovias. The professional team from Makeup Artistry by Sweta highlighted our Maharani's beauty with a sophisticated hair and makeup design. Christopher Brock Photography recorded and photographed every magical moment of this event, and the results are more than adorable. You can enjoy the gallery we've together just for you. Trust me; you will adore it!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
In 2019, Rhianna and Brandon were eagerly awaiting their guests for the weekend - Rhianna’s parents. Little did Rhianna know, there was a ring burning a hole (figuratively, of course) in Brandon’s pocket for the past two months. After collecting Rhianna’s parents from the airport while she worked from home, Brandon asked for and received their blessing while overlooking the bright Seattle skyline from their rooftop apartment.
It was a beautiful sunny summer day in the North Cascades where they all finished a short hike. Brandon chose a scenic spot to have a picnic, conveniently with a pristine lake and gorgeous mountain backdrop. Naturally, they had to capture the Instagram-worthy scenery with family photos. As Brandon gets down on one knee, emotions flow down on Rhianna’s face. In that moment, the pure love and happiness was palpable to everyone around.
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.
Planning details with RHS Events were included in the submission. Hair and makeup was done by Makeup Artistry by Sweta. She executed my Indian and Western looks to perfection. The most impressive part of my experience with Sweta was her ability to turn my Indian look to my Western look in 35 minutes.
Our goal was to have a modern wedding but still capturing the key details of both cultures.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since we were having a fusion wedding, I wanted my Indian bridal lengha to reflect the traditional wedding colors - red and gold.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the process was to witness both sides of the family form a bond throughout the wedding planning.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Guests loved the unique experience where they had an opportunity to be exposed to two different cultures. The food and DJ (OneNight ATL) was also a huge hit!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It's honestly hard to pinpoint one moment. The entire day was spectacular.
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
We aimed to achieve a unique experience all-around, including food. We worked with the venue to incorporate a mixture of our favorite foods including honey-sriracha fried chicken and waffle sliders to bite sized samosas with cilantro mint chutney. For our wedding favors, we also had customized cookies, illustrating UGA, where we first met, and Seattle, where we currently reside.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be mindful of what you splurge on. For me, floral arrangements was not a priority. However, spending little extra on a photographer/videographer was worth every penny to have those memories documented forever.
My beloved Maharanis, keep coming back for more love stories!
