Asheville, NC Pakistani Engagement by Hakim's Studio

Welcome back, ladies! I'm so glad you could join us. We can't wait to unveil what we have prepared for your daily dose of inspiration. Today we celebrate Ayima and Hamza, a couple that touched our hearts since the first moment their fairytale story landed in our editorial room! Their unique story dates back a couple of years ago when they met at a family wedding. The duo was inseparable since, and the rest is history. They set up early Spring'20 as a wedding date, but first, the renowned Hakim's Studio joined them for a special engagement session. The talented Mairaj Hakim's crew created a unique and extraordinary photograph artwork that truly reflects their personalities and energy. The dramatic backdrop of the historic Biltmore Estate, America's Largest Home, is utterly brilliant! First, Ayima and Hamza were captured amidst the lovely blooms of a greenhouse, and later they took advantage of the spectacular outdoors of this legendary home. Maharani Ayima went for a sublet makeup for the first set of portraits, and she slipped into a beautiful deep blue saree with touches of sparkle she accessorized with silver bangles, While Hamza opted for a black suit he completed with a blue shirt. I love the intimate vibes of these moody and romantic photos. Ayima's red gown popped during the alfresco session. The lace embellished design made this gown perfect, while her smokey eye and red lips were just right for a flirty look. Hamza pulled off the turtleneck with suit look with ease. He really mastered the style with black and burgundy shades that turned him into the epitome of menswear elegance. These chic looks and styles are all the inspiration you need for your own engagement photos. Make sure to visit our complete gallery for more breathtaking portraits.

Chicago, IL Indian Fusion Wedding by T&S Hughes Photography

Good morning ladies! We're off to a good start with today's fusion wedding in Chicago. Maheen and Chris are the lucky couple who allows us to take a peek at their special day, and we love every detail. T&S Hughes Photography provided the beautiful shots that will help us relive the highlights, and we can't thank this amazing photo crew enough for such a great giveaway. Firstly the lovely duo had an elegant Nikkah ceremony at the Morgan MFG, witnessed by their families and friends. The union rituals framed by a floral arch that featured fresh foliage and crystal chandeliers that brightened the wedding space. Life in Bloom was the artist behind the magical ceremony setting, and they also created the show-stopping arrangments that decked the reception tables. I especially love the hanging greenery and blush hues; you can never go wrong with pinkish roses! The newlyweds made their first appearance as husband and wife, exuding happiness and style. Maharani Maheen made an absolute style statement wearing a gold shade ensemble, and the exquisite embroidery of this dress made this look even more dazzling. Dollhouse Beauty Bar created the ultimate bridal makeup adding a smoky bronze eye paired with bold lipstick makeup that made her look super-soft and feminine. Chris opted for a classic blue Sherwani suit that helped him embraced his new culture and inner Raja. Bittersweet Pastry Shop conceived an artful confection that sweetened the blissful occasion while Fotio Booth entertained the guests with fun snaps. A big round of applause for Engaging Events by Ali as they carefully planned this multicultural affair and contributed to making Maheen and Chris's dreams come to life. If you need more inspiration, check out their fabulous reel by Mirar Weddings here and peruse the complete gallery!

Washington, D.C.Stylized by Elaine Li Photography

Hello ladies! Today we bring an amazing styled shoot put together by a group of renowned professionals to display all their expertise to brides-to-be. So if you are in the search for endless inspiration, you are at the right place. World's sixth-largest Gothic cathedral, The National Cathedral in Washington DC, was the perfect backdrop for this lovely bridal photo session, produced by the incredibly talented Elaine Li Photography. The neutral color of the scenery made the shades of the bridal assembles pop, and the beauty of each model stand out. The team created modern bridal look concepts that present a wealth of ideas and details for any bride dreaming of a fairytale day. The first images feature model Shamsha wearing a traditional red lehenga choli adorned with delicate sequin flower motifs and a gold-toned dupatta. The inspiration for this first look is even more splendid, thanks to J. Tan Artistry, who created the glam eyes that gave this bride an alluring appeal. What a wonderful makeup idea that I'm sure fits for every kind of bride. By Grace Floral Design completed the trousseau with a blush pink and ivory palette flower bouquet adapted harmoniously to the dazzling look. Ashna was pretty in pink. She slipped into an enchanting baby pink Anarkali-styled suit while Mehma adorned her hands with an intricate net mehndi design that it's always trendy. Makeup artist Jaqueline Gellner created a subtle yet sublime hair and makeup combo I adore. Our last muse, Tishin, was decked with a heavy Kundan Maang tikka and, beautified with a dramatic floral updo by Faryal Syeda that combined with her romantic bouquet. This bride's style is pure sophistication. Congratulations to all involved in this beautiful and inspiring bridal. Please take a closer look at all the details of each look in our complete gallery.

Carson, CA Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Darlings, join us today while we unveil Darshana & Ankur's wedding on our Platinum Guide Blog!

photo #319143

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ankur on the Bumble dating app. I knew he was the one when he agreed to go see Aladdin the musical with me.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The proposal was a COMPLETE surprise!!! We were traveling to Spain to visit my sister and her family. My sister and her family were showing us around and we went to Parque del Retiro. We were walking around and Ankur led me to a gazebo which was decorated with flowers! Next thing I know he was down on one knee proposing!!!!

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.
Social media was very helpful while planning for my wedding during the pandemic. I used IG pages and facebook to contact vendors for hair/makeup, outfits, decor, and mendhi. Everyone was very helpful and understanding due to the pandemic.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted a traditional red bridal lengha. I wasn't able to go to India and my mom and aunt were very helpful. They knew I wanted a red bridal lengha. Whatapp video calls were very helpful.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was planning on what I wanted for my bridal mendhi. I wanted something that represents both Ankur and I. Neha Assar did an amazing job with my bridal mendhi and working with her was a great experience!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests enjoyed the intimate wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that replays in my head how my family and extended family worked together to make my wedding happen. Everyone played a significant role.
