How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
When I was visiting home during my freshman year of college, I really wanted to go to this party with my friends.  Luckily, one of Rishi's cousins introduced the both of us at this party.  It was an instant connection once we started to talk about a TV show we both like. Little did I know that at the age of 19 I was going to meet my soulmate and best friend.  After 8.5 years, I still think about that day when we first met and feel extremely blessed to have such an amazing relationship with him.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I have been planning for this day since I was a little girl, so of course I knew what I wanted (well at least for the Christian dress).  Luckily, I had a lot of support when I went shopping for my dresses.  For my Indian bridal lengha, I knew it was the one once I saw it in Nazranaa.  It was everything I wanted--a velvet and burgundy material.  When I went to Castle Couture for my Christian wedding dress, it was a bit more complicated because I was so overwhelmed with the dress selections.  But, I knew I wanted an off white, lace wedding dress with either 3/4th or long sleeves, so that helped narrow it down.  After trying on several dresses, I felt super indecisive between a few dresses and wanted to sleep on it.  So I went back a few weeks later and thank gosh Matthew Christopher was there for his trunk show! Once I tried on his dress, it was everything I ever dreamed of since I was a little girl. Lastly, for my reception wedding dress, I was able to get it customized.  I wanted it to be a very glamorous one piece dress that was a representation of both cultures (with of course a lot of sparkles). I think they were able to nail my vision because I could not wait to wear it once I saw what it looked like!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was definitely the end of the night on the dance floor! I finally felt all of the pre-wedding stress lifted off of my shoulders.  I was able to see all of our ideas come together and everyone having a great time.  I had a dream team of vendors and I honestly would not know what I would do without them through this whole wedding process.  I literally bugged them all the time whenever I had a concern or question.  They made my wedding day a dream and I could not thank them enough! I was actually upset at the end of the night because I did not want that to be the last time I ever saw them since we grew so close and truly considered them to be friends.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the way we incorporated both of our cultures. For the Hindu ceremony, we had the traditional Baraat and Indian food, and then we transitioned to the Christian ceremony in the afternoon.  We also had a Mariachi band during cocktail hour, which everyone loved! Our venue (The Palace at Somerset Park) had amazing food and drinks as well.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Brides-to-be—It is super important to establish a connection with your vendors! Definitely do your research because some vendors may not have the same style or vision that you want for your wedding day.  Also, be patient and remain calm. Stuff that you are unable to control will happen, just go with it! On your wedding day, things may run late, your dupatta may keep falling off, guests who said they would attend do not show up, you slip during your first dance, you do not eat anything until the end of the night, but at the end of the day NONE of that matters. You literally do not care because you are too excited and happy to let it bother you, so have fun! All of the stress and planning will be worth it because at the end of the day, you are marrying your best friend in front of everyone you love.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We would like to thank all of our amazing vendors, family, and friends for being a part of our special day! We are so blessed to have such amazing people in our lives.

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.
5 MAKEUP trails. Yes, you got it right I have a very special experience with the Hair & makeup artist, I have never been on makeup, I barely use it in daily life. I was so concerned about my D Day look that I went for 5 makeup trials with 5 different makeup artist and must have spoken to more than 15 of them. I didnt want them to change my features or the base of my skin tone. I was proud of being a brown skin dusky bride. And my fiance was very concerned too. At the end he started speaking to makeup artist just so that they understnad what we were asking them for. In surat, a makeup artist typically tries to create a fairer baseof the brides skin tone which makes the bride look not who she is. and this was the toughest thing to be booked. I was in Mumbai during planning of my wedding. I must have spoke to 15 artist in mumbai before speaking to the ones in Surat. Ms. Sejals studio is like the dream destination for brides to be, I got her reference from a to be bride friend and she was just way to confident about her. Ms. Sejals studio was  30 minutes away from the venue and would have taken just 1 hour to travel. and my parents got all finiky as to why do I have to travel so much to just get ready. but that was my last resort and that was the best decision i made.
 
We have another deep story with the venue, like I have been a very traditional girl at heart but at the same time very modern with my thoughts. I so wanted my wedding to happen at my home. but My father had already booked a 5 star resort property in Daman, and wanted a full fledged destination wedding. After numerous discussions and convincing sessions, the families agreed to do a wedding in surat ( my home town) , with the pheere happening at my uncles place because we could easily fit in all the guest in that location and have the reception in his apartment garden. but this was not it, on 2nd of february, when the d day was 20 days apart, the wedding venue changes to a wedding lawn( a garden area) with the pheere in the garden. this is not how i wanted, i never thought of getting married in a fancy place, for my a home is the most auspicious place from where the girl should be married. I cried, I opened my heart to my mom and my fiance to do something, I so wanted to get married from my own home. and finally after all the rona dhona and drama, on 15th february, my father finally decided that the pheere, will be at my home only the brides home . the feeling of bidai from brides own home, is what i wanted and i really was lucky to get it.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I selected more than 5000 bridal images from various online platforms in a span of 1 year to understand the best lengha look. I visted all designer studios in mumbai to just understand and see what I like. I finally went ahead to self design the lehenga . I must have tried 10 varittes of the pink i wanted. even after finallizing one shade, I rejected it after 1 month because i found abetter shade of pink. My fiance, Vishal is a beliver in lord Shiva, and my lehenga had the banaras ka ghat ( where lord shiva was first welcomed by lord vishnu) as its designs. The Banaras ghat and Shiva are very integral to the indian mythology. My lehenga also had his name at various spots, my nickanmes in the latkans and my dupata had 'Om' and 'Shree' as a part of its designs.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was doing everything on own. I had been following most of the prominent wedding portals and magazines since the day my father was searching for a potential life partner. I wanted the wedding in my own way, and i was sure about my decisions because I had planned 2 of my brothers weddings previously. I had a folder in my phone( i still have it) with more than 20,000 inspirational pictures of lehenga, decor, jewellery and event ideas gathered in a span of 1-1.5 year. I was so particular about every detail that the journey will be in my minds forever. the most enjoyable rather tough part was fixing our photographer. I had requested for quotes from more than 50 top photogrpahers from india, starting the process from August but hadnot been able to book the photographer until end of December, just because to me the memories of my wedding were very very important and we couldnot zero down to one good photographer. For a lot of people photography is the last thing they would like to book, but for me it was the first thing that i wanted to book and spend a good amount of money on creating memories.Finally we got whom we wanted and the pictures have been just mesmerizing
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our Haldi!!!Our haldi was a never ending event. It started with the traditional route to rituals but ended in the most fun way possible. I as a bride was loaded in haldi, with flower petals on me throughout the event, there were more than 15 kgs of rose petal,and marigold ( 3 colours) in the event. this was being showered on the bride groom and family. and there was a marwadi singer at the background who created the essence of dance, fun and immiginable memories. It is definitely a good decision to have some fun in your haldi, with flowers( like they call it pholo ki haldi) and have fun. Moreover, I as a bride was wearing a self designed flower Lehenga, which created a altogether different look as a bride to be and the family members were so interested & awed by it that they wanted to be with me throughout and the look was just too much. When my mother saw me the first time in this look, she almost had a drop of tear in her eyes:(
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Yes, there were quite a few. the first and the most important being the runaway bridal no makeup photoshoot. I was running late becuase of all the other functions and rituals. I had an makeup appointment booked for 1:30 pm,and i had to be at the venue by 6:30 pm. my photogrpaher was keen on clicking bridal solos in daylight and we had left for the makeupartist salon only at 4:30pm. Despite being late, we cooked up a story with the makeup artist to visit the temple before the dawn and left her studio at 4:30 promising her that we return in 15 minutes and eventually went for a photoshoot. I think this was the best moment of the day, where I went beyond the convetional ways of photoshoot, where the bride gets all decked up to be clicked, we just wore the lehenga in the studio, got jeweled up in the car and there we were shooting the 10 best solo images of my weddding day and yes without any makeup on me.
The another special moment which I am being mesmerized till date is the time when I walked the aisle with my parents on my side and my brothers holding the pholo ki chaadar. it was this walk of life where i saw my whole life transition and this walk is very very special to me. as i had my full family with me. After this walk, when both of parents handed my hand to Vishal, was the time i realizeed that okay now done , I am no more their Lado, I am now Vishals Akriti.
 
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.
So, I had a very special moment that I wanted to create in my wedding, and that was the sangeet, I have been dancing since I was 5 and have loved it. be it my brothers sangeet or my own sangeet I was very interested in adding a lot of creativity to the event. For my own sangeet I had this dream of dancing with my brothers, since I listened to this song "My desi girl" by Priyanka chopra, i also danced with my mother on 'Maiye ne Maiye ' and with my father on Dilbarao from Raazii. It was really the thing I enjoyed the most.
 
The other most special detail I would like to mention is the bridal entry song that was played, we had listened to 100 songs on youtube to finalize on this particular traack. We came down to songs where I could exemplify each of my family relationship. The first song being "Teri Khushiyann" - it is a brother sister song, Laadki and ungli pakad ke.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Definitely many !!!
The first thing a bride should focus on is her 'D Day Look', it is important to picture this and go ahead planning this. The very important point in deciding the look is to select between a traditional and a modern look, and whether or not to add that bit of touch of each other into the final look. Yes, I choose a very traditional look (like the color being typicall fusica pink and not red) but twisted it with modern stuff ( like pairing green jewellery). It is important because you will be bride only once.
The next word of wisdom is to be very careful with the blouse, the stitching the fit , the depth. Because only if the blouse is perfect will your jewelry pop out and your duppata will create that grace. Please do select your jewellery before your lehenga, because the matching has to be perfect. A diamond necklace might not blend the best with a jardosi work or ari tari, but a black polished gold jewellery goes so well with these. similarly, a diamond goes really well with all pastel coloured looks and sequence work. The third most important thing is to add variety in bridal dress for all the events. This creates a lot of pictures in different attires and also the more variety you wear you will love your bridal look more . ( the significance of wearing a lehenga only on wedding day will be awed by bringing variety to other events)
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I had written Vishals Name in 10 different Language on my 10 fingers on my mehendi.
My lehenga had my nicknames in latkans ( like all the names that my friends addressed me with, my family and definitely Vishal's love name also)
The Flower haldi Lehenga
the Jewelry was self desinged - i had visited more than 10 stores in surat to choose what I wanted but found no where, I spend 4 hourss to get my bridal bangles matching. I wanted to wear the mathapati but my mom was so skeptical on the look of it that I almost fought with her on this decision and finally on my makeup trial with the studio i had fixed the hair artist actually showed me book the looks and we finally decided the mathapati look.
I have also decked up myself with variety of vintage jewellery throughout in pre wedding functions. Most of them have been from my mothers wedding or my grand mothers wedding.
I have also re-worn my mothers bridal lehenga as a part of one of the Pre wedding functions. ( which was specifically for my mothers side of the family).
 
We are still blown away by all the beauty surrounding today's featured wedding that we need a moment to catch our breath. But make sure to join us tomorrow for more. You will be amazed!

Pondicherry, Indian Fusion Wedding by Shakir Photography

Good morning, beautiful Maharanis! We are excited to be back as we were dying to share today's lovely story with you. So, let's not wait any longer and take a look at Ancy & Pradhip's big wedding bash. And we hope you have your travel documents handy because we are taking you to Pondicherry for you to be part of this grand event. Today's lovely couple planned a magnificent celebration which started with a traditional Hindu ceremony, followed by a signature on the livre encrypted in Francaise, and finally a Christian ring ceremony with a prayer. How amazing is that! We love how each event honored the bride and groom's culture, faith, and above all, their love for each other! And we know that planning a wedding ceremony is not easy, let alone plan a whole multicultural wedding bash! So we want to make a big shoutout to the bride and groom for the perfect planning and execution of all wedding events. The attention to detail resulted in a dreamy celebration that exceeded all expectations. Both Ancy & Pradhip attended their wedding festivities looking flawless and overflowing with so much happiness and joy that you can almost feel how all these emotions pop from the screen and brighten up your day. For the Hindu ceremony, they embraced a traditional look and ended up looking like the prince and princess of an Indian fairytale. Ancy trusted her beauty needs to Makeup Sharath Bhushan, and Sruthi Kannath and Moksha designed her wedding attires. To crown her ravishing looks, Ancy wore dazzling pieces of jewelry from New Ideas Fashions Jewellery's collection, which added an extra touch of traditional flair to her different attires. And oh, boy! We cannot stress how much we loved her different looks! To match the beauty of the love of his life, Pradhip rocked an all-white attire for the ceremony and an elegant and fashionable tux from P N RAO for the closing gala. They looked so gorgeous together than not even the colorful decor, and the mesmerizing wall of flowers that served as a backdrop for their reception stole the attention away from them! If you want to take a closer look at this fantastic wedding celebration, head into our full gallery for more! We have compiled the most beautiful moments captured by Shakir Photography!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Every human will have a certain deep point in life where that person would feel difficult to get up from the pit. Arm rendered by MR. Mine as a friend during those phase.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
A very different story, both are ardent foot ball fans of same club. It all started with “Arsenal” and we end up hitching our life time goal... Different religion, different culture, different time zone but that never matters when souls are united.
 
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.
Different tone zone one in EST and the other in MYT. We spent our day and night together planning every stuff. We collected many many details regarding venue, makeup artist, place of stay, back drop designs, wedding clothes and ended up choosing our favourite by contacting them. And met everyone in person when in India and finalised
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I fixed my mind to go for pastels. I choose one of the best shops in Chennai where every piece is unique. When it is for our Christian wedding I always wanted to see myself in a gown so grabbed a deep red gown.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
We reached the venue few hours before our wedding and as it was an inter religion wedding our parents of both the sides and relatives anew arguing even at that point in time about giving away my traditional saree... one saying bride should step into their home and get it and the other saying as per our tradition we won’t allow... Every moment was full of suspenses and surprises
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
1. We made our bridal blouse very unique - My father’s signature is embedded in it who is no more. It was a themed blouse. Bride In a chariot and groom in a horse. Where my father’s signature as an attestation below the chariot carrying his daughter.
 
2. Back drop was appreciated my many
 
3. Our post-wedding photoshoot
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
1. Being a Christian I dint know what exactly they are asking me do when pandit requested. Every moment was very funny.. He was literally snatching the wedlock from the priest's hand and tied in few seconds. It grabbed crowd’s attention and all started laughing  seeing the scene.
 
2. During Christian tradition of ring exchange, we had a ball dance which was a ever memorable one
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Stay happy and dream well about your d day which would make you glow like a maharani...

That is all for today, darlings! Make sure to join us tomorrow for more. Same place, same time!

Long Island, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by PhotosMadeEz

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis! It feels great to be back with a new love story for you, and we are sure that today's fusion wedding will make your heart melt with tenderness and joy. So let's check it out together! When Jennifer & Chirag decided to join their lives in marriage, they knew they wanted to honor both their traditions and backgrounds, that is why they ended up having not one, but two wedding ceremonies. How lucky of them! Isn't it, ladies? We are starting today's feature by taking a look at the Christian Ceremony, and all we have to say is that we loved every bit of this solemn event, entirely planned by AG Events Corporate & Special Event Planning. And we particularly adored the look of our gorgeous Maharani who walked down the aisle looking like a princess in her white wedding dress from David's Bridal collection. This opening ceremony was so charming and emotional that we cannot help but feel happy for these lovebirds. After the Christian Ceremony, Jennifer & Chirag consummated the union with a traditional Hindu ceremony held at the fascinating outdoors of The Vineyards at Aquebogue. And oh, boy, this ceremony was a dream come true! The combination of colors and the exceptional floral decoration that Catskill Weddings put together for this outdoor ceremony helped make this event not just elegant, but delicate and exquisite, not to mention that it set a magical mood for this memorable and life-changing ceremony. Anywhere you looked, there was so much beauty all over the place, but nothing compared to the dazzling look of our gorgeous Maharani Jennifer! She looked breathtaking on this special day thanks to the exceptional work of SV Bridal Concepts by Sanjana Vaswani. The dreamy makeup, the delicate and classic hairstyle, and the stunning lengha by Nazranaa were all a perfect combination to enhance Jennifer's beauty. And let's not forget about the fantastic Mehndi designed by Mehndikalogie. These talented vendors took Jennifer's look to the next level, creating mesmerizing scenes beautifully captured by the lens of PhotosMadeEz. After both ceremonies, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds with a fabulous reception party enlivened by DJUSA, who put everyone on their feet playing the hits of the moment! Like in all previous events, Jennifer looked ravishing dressed in her swoon-worthy red lengha by Khanjana Boutique. Without any question, this is a celebration that will amaze every spectator, so don't forget to visit today's full gallery, if you don't want to miss any bit of it. You will love it so much!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
As he remembers it...
 
It was a quarter past seven and I had just bought a book, but not to read, but to gift to a girl I hadn’t yet met. Our first date was all lined up; it would be in Gramercy at my favorite bar just a short walk away. There I sat, on a stool, my feet dangling off the balance beams circling about in opposite directions the way one does before someone enters through a door and changes their life, leading them towards an immense amount of happiness. But I didn't know that then, I just thought I was nervous in anticipation wondering if the work of fiction was too bold a move. Fortunately, after giving Jenn a hug when she arrived she accepted the book with a smile more endearing than any I've seen.
 
The rest of the night was an incredible blur of fantastic conversation and a multitude of laughs bouncing from one topic to another as if we'd known each other for more than those few hours. The night would wind down so we made plans to see each other again and we both knew those weren't just words but a promise. A promise kept as not more than a couple days passed before we would hang out again and again. This would continue over the next couple years, the conversation never ceasing; the laughs endless and evermore.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As she remembers it...
 
About a year and a half after meeting for the first time, Chirag arranged for a date night to check out a new place overlooking Columbus Circle. Initially, I was resistant to go out because it was a Thursday and I had to get up early for work. He convinced me to agree and I did because he seemed so thrilled to show me a new place. I told myself, we would see this place, have a quick dinner, and I can go home on time to get ready for work the next day.
 
The entire time we were together he fidgeted with his coat and was acting uncomfortable. Little did I know, he had the ring in his coat pocket and was worried that I'd see it, or worse, that it would fall out! We decided to eat dinner near his place, but he needed to stop by his apartment first. The elevator stopped at the top floor rather than the floor he lived on. When I tried to press his floor and go back down, he insisted that we see the view on the rooftop now that we are here. I thought it was strange that he wanted to go to the rooftop of his own building after we had just seen incredible views from the top of Columbus Circle! I was also still waiting to get dinner so I can get eat and then go home. I figured we could look quickly and get on with the plans, so I agreed to go.
 
As we walked towards the far end of the rooftop, I saw a table decorated with candles and flowers and I told him, "we're walking in on someone else's surprise!" I turn the opposite way from him to see if I can find someone and apologize. When I turn back around to him, there he is on his knees, holding a ring and giving a beautiful speech (most of which I cried through). I said YES and he put the ring on my finger. I knew my life was changed for the best and I was overcome with so much happiness that I began to cry. That moment was absolutely worth delaying dinner and staying up late on a school night!
 
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.
Loved all my vendors!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Catholic Ceremony dress- David's Bridal
 
Hindu Ceremony lengha from Nazranaa (16 Marconi Ave, Iselin, NJ 08830 ), chosen based on recommendations from friends, I wanted a spring feel to match the outdoor ceremony space and I  didn't want traditional red for ceremony but rather a blush color, something that felt more updated and more like me.
 
Reception - custom lengha from Khajana Boutique (1375 OAK TREE ROAD​ ISELIN, NJ 08830), I was unable to find an outfit that seemed just right and finally found out that they customize.  Shaina helped me to design the lengha from top to bottom, detail by detail and I LOVED how it turned out. Even the shade of red was perfect (yes-I decided to do red for the reception instead, because of how bold and beautiful it would look in the evening against all the lighting).
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Invitations-choosing a design and planning the layout, then seeing the hard work come to life! We used: Indian Wedding Card. They have good customer service, they send samples of anything fairly quickly, and so MANY styles to choose from!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The reception venue because it was outdoors in a garden, there was great food and all with great weather!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The speeches from parents/family and friends
The dances from friends and family
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to have some private time with your significant other even if it's for only a couple minutes
Be sure to take a deep breath during moments and just take it all in
Have a family member/dear friend ensure you have a plate of food (and of course, one drink).

Thanks for tuning in today, darlings. Have an awesome rest of the day, and don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!
