Whippany, NJ Indian Wedding by Aesthetic Vision

I have the pleasure of introducing an absolute vision of love thanks to the amazing images shared by Aesthetic Vision! Avani and Jay are today's lucky couple who celebrated their union having a series of big days. The celebrated wedding expert Tum Hi Ho Events planned and brought to life the events before they exchanged vows which are all narrated through the fabulous images we are about to unveil! An auspicious mehndi ceremony decorated the arms of our lovely bride and was followed by a joyous and well-attended Garba night. I particularly love the couple's bright and vivid outfits that were perfect to stand out among the crowd. Maharani Avani's ruby color lehenga skirt featured beautiful dandiya dancers and her floral low bun created by Style by Susmita was perfect for a revelry event while Jay's super-stylish and traditional outfit truly made a statement! Peruse our Video Blog and watch the fascinating highlight video created by the genius filmmakers of Studio Nine Photography + Cinema and head to the gallery for more fabulous pin-worthy ideas!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Jay proposed on our 6 year anniversary, 4/21/2017. He planned an entire day full of surprises! He involved my managers and work and planned on getting me out of work early. He sent a limo to pick me up and had flowers and a letter waiting for me. He had the limo drive us to our first date spot, Acquista Trattoria, in Queens, NY. My two best friends were waiting for me there with my second clue! He then had the limo drive us to our college campus, where we met! He had my cousin waiting there for me with different outfits and shoes to choose from. We quickly got ready and hit the road again! We drove through the city, stopping off at Pellegrino's Italian Restaurant in Little Italy, where we celebrated our first Valentine's Day. We picked up a few more of my cousins who had the final clue! The limo drove us to my dream proposal, right under the Brooklyn Bridge! As I got out of the limo, my heart was racing, knowing the man of my dreams was waiting for me. I started walking towards him, with the biggest smile on my face. He had the cutest little picnic set up, with some champagne, cheese, and crackers, and chocolate covered strawberries. He had pictures of us set up with wooden blocks of our initials. It was the sweetest little setup! He sat me down, and asked how my day was (knowing exactly how it was since he planned the whole thing!) He soon got into talking about a lot of things I don't really remember because I was just SO excited! What I do remember are his last words, "Avani, will you marry me?" as he was holding the most beautiful ring ever! I said the quickest YES of my life and gave him the biggest hug and kiss! Before I know it, all of our siblings, cousins, and closest friends came running out and surprised me! We took some pictures, and later met up with our parents for dinner. After dinner, Jay had rented out an Airbnb which was full of ALL of our friends and family! We celebrated all night and had the best time! At the end of it all, I was FINALLY engaged to the man of my dreams, and it was the proposal I had always wanted! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For as long as I can remember, I always saved pictures of different outfits for whenever I got married. I knew I wanted to be a traditional bride, wearing lots of red. When I went shopping for my lengha, we went straight to Sabyasachi, in Mumbai. I fell in love with everything. As I tried different lenghas on, I felt my self drawing back to the first one I had tried! It was a beautiful shade of red, with very detailed work. The skirt had intricate blush flowers on it and it came with 2 different dupatta options: red or blush pink. I thought I wanted two different dupattas, one red and one blush, but when I was trying them on the all red look just swept me off my feet! I couldn't stop staring at the lengha. It was the first place we had gone, so my mom and I decided that we would look around and see what else there was and then come back if we didn't find anything that made me feel as good as that lengha did. Every shop I went into after that, I kept comparing it to the Sabyasachi lengha. I knew after 2 shops that my heart and mind were with the first one. A few days later we made our way back to Sabyasachi and said YES to the lengha! It was the most beautiful lengha! I couldn't have found something more perfect for me! 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My favorite parts of wedding planning we definitely picking out our menu and decor. AND WEDDING SHOPPING!I loved trying so many different foods! Rasoi was the best! We had a strictly no onion, no garlic menu and they catered to our every need! The food at the food tasting was phenomenal, and the exact same food is what our guest ate during all the wedding events! I also loved picking out our decor. Sharda at Elegant Affairs showed up the most magical mandap and we fell in love. I had saved so many pictures of what I thought I wanted but she showed us so many more pictures and we created the perfect mandap for us to take our pheras in! And the centerpieces she chose for us, blew our minds away! Beautiful cherry blossoms trees, Florals pieces, and candles and petals! She tied all the tables together by incorporating florals and candles. It was stunning! But how could I forget the wedding shopping! Getting dolled up every day and trying on new outfits and jewelry was SO MUCH FUN! It gets a little stressful at times but overall the whole experience was so great! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Aside from watching Jay and I get married and celebrating with us, our guest loved three things in particular! 1) they all loved the food provided by Rasoi! They had so much fun during cocktail hours since we had so many different stations up! 2) they loved the organization and execution! We got SO MANY compliments on how smoothly a 1000 person wedding went! and we have none other than Tum Hi Ho Events to thank for that! They really put their all into our wedding day and it couldn't have gone better! 3) music!! MVPDJs absolutely ROCKED the night. Jay only had one request during wedding planning and that was to have a concert at our reception! and MVPDJs, especially JRK definitely delivered on that request! They provided us with CO2 cannons and amazing music! the crowd was on the dance floor till past midnight, and so many of them forgot about dinner because they couldn't get themselves off the dance floor! Our lighting company also provided us with a laser show, so my husband's dream of a concert at our reception definitely came true! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My words of wisdom for Brides-to-be would be to just enjoy the process, and take it all in! It's the same advice other brides gave me, and it was the best advice! I miss every bit of wedding planning and the wedding week and I would do anything to go back! It passes by in the blink of an eye, so don't stress the little things as the big day comes closer. Just enjoy it, have so much fun, and remember what it's really about, marrying the love of your life and starting the most beautiful journey together. 

Don't go too far, you are going to love the portraits we have coming up next!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I was introduced to him by family friends, who thought we would be great for each other. Two weeks and several phone calls later, Vishal claims he knew I was the one he was going to spend the rest of his life with. For me, it took a little longer. I would like to think that I’m a fairly reserved person. But after meeting with Vishal just a couple of times, he had me spilling my secrets. He just had a certain 'Je ne sais quoi' that I fell for. I feel like I definitely took a shot in the dark with Vishal but I'm so glad I made it. The single best decision of my life.  
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
At the time, Vishal lived in Houston, and I was in OKC. Vishal planned a trip to New Orleans since neither of us had been before. The plan was for me to fly there and Vishal was going to drive because it was only a 4-hour drive from Houston. Plans were almost cancelled because hurricane Harvey was supposed to hit Houston the day he was leaving. I pleaded with him to reschedule the trip, but he was adamant about meeting this specific weekend. I was so angry and confused about him being so stubborn and I was scared at the thought of him driving through a hurricane. 
 
When we both made it to NOLA safely, he had an entire day worth of a treasure hunt around the city planned for me. It included places to eat, drink, and tourist attractions! Geocaching was something we enjoyed together and he said that he thought it would be fun to make one personally for me. The last stop on the treasure hunt was on this small stone bridge in this beautiful park where he let me struggle to find some sort of treasure that he had hidden. After struggling and finding nothing, I turn around and he’s on his knee with a ring in his hand! Of course, I said yes and hysterically awed at my ring before giving him a huge hug (which btw he won't let me live down)! I didn’t know it at the time, but he had hired a professional photographer that was hiding behind one of the bushes nearby. I don’t think I could ever forget that wonderful day!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process for me was getting to spend time with my mom and being able to plan my wedding with her.  There were so many days that became emotional and stressful but there were SO many more days where we just laughed and had a great time. She's been by my side since day one and did everything to make this THE wedding of my dreams. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
If I had to pick one, It would have to be the reception. Our DJ (DJ Riz) was amazing and the dance floor was packed from the very beginning until the very end.  He kept the party going with his great selection of songs and his contagious energy. It felt like a true party. Family and friends would not stop talking about it for weeks! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
By far the most special moment during the wedding festivities took place the night before our wedding. I was exhausted and getting ready to go to bed, trying to shoo my cousins out of my room. Just as I was finally able to get the room to myself, I got a call from Vishal and he told me to come outside because he needed to drop off some stuff for the ceremony. He had his car parked in a corner, attempting to be discrete and not be seen by any of my family. I figured I’d pick up the items and head to bed since we had a big day tomorrow. We ended up sitting in the car and talking about things that we don’t even remember anymore. We completely lost track of time. After an hour or so, we decided we better get some sleep before we both missed the ceremony the next morning! We said our good nights and I took the box and went to my room. To my surprise, I opened the box and it was empty! I don't know why this particular moment meant so much to me, but it just did.

We hope you all enjoyed reliving this sparkling event as much as we did! See you tomorrow.

Irving, TX Indian Wedding by A&A Photo Video

And now a little glimpse of heaven! No wonder why it was selected to be part our "Best of 2018" Magazine! The celestial wedding of Hemali and Vishal was a once in a lifetime celebration that initiated with a pre-wedding photo shoot by A&A Photo Video during the golden hour portraying the couple's love at its finest! The scenery was picture perfect at the wonderful SLP Event Center, the place was set up by the always talented Prashe with a majestic mandap that contained thousands of lush flowers and that easily resembled a secret garden while crystals chandeliers perfectly illuminated the sacred spot. I'm touched by the traditional rites and beautiful scenes of the solemn union, a huge BRAVO to the excellent Electric karma - East Coast for making sure no detail was overlooked during such a significant moment! All the guests were thrilled when Hemali and Vishal were pronounced husband and wife and I can't wait to see all the best moments in our complete gallery

Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by House of Talent Studio

When Mahathi decided to make their union forever, it was only a matter of time before the wedding planning would come at lightning speed! Mahathi had a vision - and her vision was big! A vision this big requires a lot more time and planning and Ring to Aisle Events was on board to spearhead the very important task of wedding planning. It is no surprise that every single guest was blown away with every detail of the reception held at The Marigold following the Indian wedding ceremony. Amplifire Entertainment fired off the dance floor and I can feel the love jumping right off the screen! House of Talent Studio took extra care in capturing every memory that this sweet duo will cherish for years to come, memorialized in our gallery.
