Westminster, CA Indian Wedding by Wedding Aperture

Good morning, beautiful ladies! It's Friday again, and this time we are not only finishing a new week, but we are also ending the month of October. So, we decided to do something special for you! Today, we'll be taking at the intimate and awe-inspiring wedding between Kausar & Fahad, and believe us; this is one wedding celebration you don't want to miss. So, let's get right into it! This intimate wedding took place during COVID, so different arrangements had to be made to comply with the safety measurements. Still, the ceremony ended up being beautiful as enchanting, thanks to 2Create Designs, who planned, designed, and decored this entire wedding bash. They transformed the family's backyard into a mesmerizing setting overflowing with beauty, elegance, and traditional flair, and we cannot stress how much we loved every bit of it. Our blushing Maharani looked drop-dead gorgeous thanks to Peace Love Sakina, who designed and exquisite makeup and hairstyle for Kausar's big day. The nude colors, combined with the on-point contour, praised her innate beauty and made her look like a goddess. And we want to give a big shoutout to Wedding Aperture for the fantastic shots they captured throughout the different moments of this wedding celebration. Each image is even more impressive than the one before, and we absolutely loved them. But don't take my word; check it out for yourself in today's full gallery. It is the best way to start getting ready for the weekend!

Hanover, NJ Indian Wedding by Events Capture

Ladies! Don't miss Parina & Pathik's intimate wedding celebration in today's Platinum Guide Blog.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Pathik and I met online via DilMil. He lived in Boston and I was in Jersey. The beginning stages of our relationship was rough, his work required him to travel internationally 3 weeks out of a month and I knew he was the one when he would find a way to meet with me in his one week back in the states. That’s how I knew he was the one - he was willing to make plans with me during his small time frame back at home and that showed me that he made spending time with one another a priority.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Pathik proposed to me about 2 weeks before he decided to move to New Jersey to be closer to me. He proposed to me on a very windy day in battery park, and made me the happiest woman around. I was so shocked that even though I knew that the ring goes on the left hand - I was so surprised and shocked that rather than gracefully handing him my hand I gave him both hands to let him choose where the ring should go. Turns out I wore my ring on the wrong finger and didn’t realize it until I FaceTimed my sister to tell her the news and she called me out on 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.
Planning out wedding started over a year before the actual wedding date. We had all of our vendors selected by November 2019. But in February 2020 covid hit and changed so many aspects of the plan. We went from having 4 events at 2 venues with 500 people each to having only the wedding with 90 of our closest family and friends.

The wedding was nothing like what we planned but it was everything we truely wanted. Shrishti our wedding coordinator helped keep us calm and figure out how to work with the constantly changing regulations and we couldn’t be more greatful.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India to do my shopping, and unlike most brides experiences. I fell in love with my outfit within the first 12 hours of being in India. I bought the dress from the first store I went to and fell in love with it.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
There was no joy in our wedding planning all of the fun things that were to take place were canceled due to covid. We never had a food tasting as we didn’t have a typical caterer. We opted to go for a safe way of getting food to our guests with food trucks. We didn’t get to have a cake tasting as we felt having a large Cake that would have to be cut and served could be risky and we wanted to try and be as safe as possible so we had a Ben and Jerry food truck take the place of the wedding cake. We didn’t want to risk catching or transmitting anything to the makeup artist and I put all my trust in her the day of and let Arfana Jasar work her magic.

The most enjoyable part for us was just being able to have the wedding given the climate of the world with corona virus.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests still rave about the precautions we took at our wedding. We provided all of our guests with custom face masks, we set up all of the seats to be set up 6’ apart, we made sure that we avoided indoor dining as that is risky and had food trucks set up outside so it was a safer method for all of the guests to enjoy the food. The pizza vita, tacowala, and Ben and Jerry’s food trucks did a great job and everyone loved it!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Given the risk Covid put on everyone present at the wedding pathik and I had to make the difficult decision to cancel so many events. The hardest one to cancel was the reception. I had spent so much time planning dances and making song selections for entrances and something I dreamed about, the first dance. Before the vidai/farewell I was able to have my first dance and that had left me in tears since it was something I was really looking forward to.

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.
I only ended up having the ceremony, so I was able to convince the bridal party to do a little dance as the bridal parties entry to the mandap so I could still have a little bit of dancing for our wedding.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For any brides to be - don’t forget that you are planning the wedding as way to celebrate the start of a new and beautiful chapter. So remember that it is something you want to enjoy not overplay.

San Mateo, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by International Wedding

Hello there, ladies! It feels great to be back because we were dying to share Niharika & Saikumar's enchanting wedding with all of you! So, get comfortable, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, and get ready to enjoy it! We're starting with Niharika & Saikumar's love dripping wedding ceremony hosted at the San Mateo Marriott. The ceremony was a luxurious affair overflowing with tradition and beauty thanks to the marvelous decor crafted by Royal Event Rentals. Everything was so beautiful and enchanting that it seemed almost surreal. It may easily have been the recreation of an Indian fairy tale brought to real life. The grandeur of the occasion reflected in our lovely couple's traditional and fashionable looks, but still, it was our blushing Maharani who stole the show. She trusted her beauty needs to TM's Makeup Artistry, and we have no words to describe how unique her final look was! Without any question, this was the dreamy ceremony that these two lovebirds always wanted. They sealed the deal with their first kiss as husband and wife while placing each other's wedding rings in the middle of cheers and rose petals. What a magical ending to an incredible ceremony! After becoming husband and wife, it was time to celebrate with a luxurious reception party animated by Music Mantra DJs. They owned the dancefloor and put everyone on their feet. The only time the dancing stopped was to take a bite at the delicious cake baked by La Patisserie. Without any question, a sweet ending for a sweet and charming story. If you can't get enough of this wedding, don't miss today's gallery by International Wedding Photography. It is breathtaking, and you'll love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband on the Labor day weekend in 2015 in Las Vegas at a pool party in Mandalay Bay. After 2 years of dating, one day I saw my then boyfriend , now husband help out a friend through a very difficult time. He was responsible, nurturing and in control of the situation , that is when i realised that he was the most Stand Up guy I had ever met.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I proposed to my husband in 2018 in Cascal Mountain View, and asked him to take his time to figure out if he wanted to take the leap.

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.
We had to plan a wedding in 3 months . Our parents finalized the day on Feb 28th 2019. We started with fixing on a budget ( split the bill halfway). Methodically tackled --> ceremonies to be organized, guestlist, family accommodation, gifts for our families , catering and then the venue(first priority in terms of the budget allocation) and then visited the bridal expo to finalize on decor, photography, and DJ vendors. My husband and I happen to be very skilled in working under tight deadlines.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since i chose the boy, I wore the Saree and the Lehenga my family chose. They went through a good 20 outfits before closing in on both my dresses.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The planning brought out the aesthetic sense that I never knew my husband had. I realized he was on the low creating pintrest boards for our wedding decor . It was very sweet.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The personal touches in our gift bags and the fact that it was small and intimate.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Seeing each other in our wedding outfits for the first time during varmala exchange.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Learn to be calm and not be overwhelmed. The most important thing that matters is that you will be joining in matrimony with the love of your life.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehendi - Radhika Jajoo did 24 pairs of hands in a mere 6 hrs and they were intricate and beautiful.
The cake from La Patesserie was so scrumptious that they earned a number of loyal customers from our wedding. Jewelry was mainly Gold and Kundan from India.
