Toronto, ON Indian Wedding by Samir K Photography

Hello there, darlings! We've arrived at the third and final part of Sangeeta & Dipak's wedding festivities by taking a look at a marvelous reception party held inside the halls of the Scarborough Convention Centre. So get ready to have some fun because this closing gala will take your breath away! For this reception party, both Sangeeta & Dipak dressed to impress, and we loved their looks! Sangeeta wore a traditional lengha from Poonams Kaurture that made her look like a princess, while Dipak donned in a dark slate blue suit from Indochino, which made him look handsome and imposing. And we loved how these two looked together! The night was a huge success, and all the guests had a great time dancing to the beats of Ryan Ali and tasting the delicious food prepared by Scarborough Convention Centre's catering team, right before having a bite to the sweet cake baked by Simmy Jassal. Hands down, this elegant and luxurious gala, was the best way to bring the wedding festivities to an end. We wish this lovely and romantic story didn't have to come to an end because we are having so much fun. However, we need to let these two follow their way into their happily ever after. But there is no need to feel blue because you can always relive this entire wedding celebration by taking a look at the shots captured by Samir K Photography in this awesome gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Believe it or not, my father introduced me to him while we were at the temple! I knew he was the one during our second date when we spent an entire evening drinking herbal tea, listening to music and just sharing our life stories with each other. He was just so easy to talk to and I felt like I've known him my whole life.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He told me to get dressed up and meet him downtown to go to his office Christmas party. When I arrived at his place, I walked in to see rose petals, candles and fairy lights beautifully decorating the entire living room and then he got down on one knee and said "I love you" for the very first time and asked me to marry him. I was so shocked that I almost forgot to say yes!
 
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.
I had a very clear idea of what I wanted since I had an entire Pinterest board dedicated to my dream wedding for years. My husband and I made most of our decisions quite quickly because we knew what we liked and we were very aligned in our vision. We only met with each of our vendors about 2-3 times and had all the details confirmed.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew exactly what colours I wanted but I decided to try different styles and colours to open up my options. I tried on many bridal lenghas at different stores all over Toronto but then I ended up getting my outfits over a video call at 3am while my dad was in India shopping around for me. I watched the store attendants try on outfits for me. In under an hour, I had outfits for my wedding and reception!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of wedding planning was food tasting! Food is one of the most important parts of the wedding and we wanted to ensure our all-vegetarian menu was a hit! Being able to explore different dishes and customize our options was really fun and delicious.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
That's a tough one, I've heard so much great feedback from our friends and family. I think one thing that everyone said was that they had a blast at the reception because the music was really good. And I couldn't agree more! The dance floor was packed from beginning to end. Koodos to our DJ!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment I sat down next to husband at our wedding ceremony definitely stands out. I was so anxious and stressed out until that moment. But when I sat next to him, he made a joke about me taking forever to get ready and I laughed and all the stressed melted away.
 
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.
My family all flew in from Trinidad, India, New Jersey and Florida for the wedding. The maticoor night which was the night before the wedding, was really special because it was an intimate event with just my closest family and friends. Everyone pitched in: my mom and aunts spent the entire day cooking all the delicious Trinidadian food, my cousins rehearsed our dance for the reception and my best friend helped me oversee my uncles decorating the entire house and setting up the stage. It was truly a special day.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There will always be a reason to stress out, there is always something that doesn't work out the way you planned, but at the end of the day, it's important to share the happy moments with those around you and cherish these memories. This is a happy time in your life! Be present, be happy and show gratitude to those around you that are sharing in your moments.

What a great way to start the week, isn't it ladies? If you want more inspiring ideas, make sure to join us tomorrow!

Orlando, FL Indian Wedding by Nathan English Photography

It takes brave people to do bold things, and what could be more bold than to tie your life to someone else's during this delicate time for the entire world?  Like a ray of sunshine, Ruchi's DM on Instagram warmed the hearts of our entire team.  Virtually of course!  Ruchi & Brian were set to get married in grand fashion in a few days, however, when life changed their course, they did what any intelligent couple does, they pivoted.  With their friends & family's best interests in mind, they got married in an intimate ceremony with only their parents, siblings, and frenchie Mylo at the bride's family home in Florida.  The bride looked ravishing in a classic red lengha from Surya Sarees and jewelry from Jewellery by Kiran Khan.  Tarak from Maharani Designs singlehandedly set up the mandap while the bride's family glammed her up inside, her mom, a freelance makeup artist, and her sister did her hair.  The couple can't wait to reschedule their fabulous reception so they can celebrate their union with their entire circle.  This family wedding celebration was expertly captured from six feet away by Nathan English Photography, so make sure you dive inside this Covid free gallery now!

From the bride: Week before we were hit with all of this news then saw that the CDC had banned parties of 50+. We had family coming in from all over the world, and some that are at higher risk than others, so we knew it would be best to keep the ceremony intimate and only have our immediate family there who had already flown in/drove to be with us before this pandemic started. At that point, it wasn’t about us and our big parties that we wanted to have, but we wanted to do what was best for everyone in our family. So, within a week we had to cancel everything. We informed our family and friends as to what we were doing and ceremony still happened! We are, however, rescheduling our reception for a later date because everyone would still like to come down and celebrate with us. So, as of now, we are just waiting until we are cleared to reschedule that! Hopefully this answered your questions! It definitely wasn’t easy, and this is of course the shortened version. But we had to have our family and friends

Best interests in mind. I truly believe it was better this way as our parents got to spend a lot of time together and we all got to hangout and enjoy these intimate moments that will last a lifetime!

Stay home, wash your hands, and let's get through this one beautiful wedding at a time together!  Muah!
