How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Yosh was a friend of our family for a very long time. He was at all of my family events and he spent a lot of time with my cousins and I. Eventually, we ended up together. We aren’t exactly sure how it happened, but we’re so thankful that it did.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Our proposal story is definitely not a typical, romantic one. It’s actually kind of funny. It was our anniversary. It was a Saturday and he told me to be ready at a certain time because he was taking me to Malibu, but I woke up not feeling well. I was thinking of cancelling our plans, but everyone including my mom wouldn’t let me. My mom also looked so stressed, she kept coming into my room checking to make sure my makeup looked good, and she made me change my jewelry 4 times. I still didn’t think anything of it. So I went on this anniversary date and I was so frustrated because my boyfriend was texting the entire time and he seemed so on edge. He took me to this random restaurant (I later found out he needed to stall) and the food was awful and I started throwing up. I asked him if we could go home because I didn’t feel well, but then I saw how disappointed he looked so I decided to tough it out. He pulled up at the beach and told me to take off my shoes because I was wearing heels. So we walked on the sand and it was really nice. I was kind of confused because we were aimlessly walking and I was wondering what the plan was, but he just kept walking. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw this guy take a picture of me with a camera and then he started hiding behind a rock and still kept taking pictures. I turned to my boyfriend and said “Babe, that guy is taking pictures of us!” And he just shrugged it off. I was so busy looking at the guy, I missed the whole set up. There was a blanket with roses, a basket, Champagne, and a ring!!
So he proposed and I was in shock for like 20 minutes. We drank some champagne. Some of my cousins were there and it was truly beautiful. After all of this, he told me that his family and mine were waiting for us at my house and there will be a little party. I was super excited and was ready to go home. We got in the car and his car broke down! Luckily, we were able to take one of my cousin’s car. We got to the party and it was such an amazing night! We felt so loved by everyone and it is a night I’ll never forget.

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.
Wedding planning was a lot for me. I typically love planning events! When it came to my own, I really struggled. I decided I did not want a wedding planner and I wanted to do it all myself. I’m kind of picky.
We had a 2 day wedding. Saturday was our Hindu wedding. And Sunday was our Buddhist ceremony and reception. We had 550 guests. Choosing my hair and makeup artist was hard for me. I am actually a makeup artist, so I was really particular. I found my makeup artist Nadia Ali and we did a trial. She let me choose exactly what I wanted, and fix things and I loved that she let me be so involved. On our wedding day, she came through and handled it all.
We did end up hiring a day of coordinator. Her name was Monika Patel and she was amazing.
My family really came through for me and took care of so many details. It truly was a group effort and I was so thankful so have such an amazing team on my side.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
So I had 3 outfits. I knew that I wanted my Hindu wedding outfit to be red and sparkly. I tried on so many outfits in LA. I even tried on what was in style at the time and it didn’t look right on me. We ended up going to New York. And my first appointment was with Sandy at Bolly Couture (I found her on Instagram.) I loved her outfits! There was one outfit on the mannequin and I was like “Whoa! That outfit is sparkly, but way too sparkly!” I actually didn’t like it. My cousins made me try it on as a joke since I didn’t like it. I put the outfit on and I looked up and my cousins were in tears. And I said “Oh no! Please don’t tell me this is the one.”
Sandy took me to the mirror and I saw it and fell in love. I was ready to buy it right then and there. To do myself justice, I continued with the rest of my appointments just to make sure that was it. No matter what I tried on, I kept thinking about that outfit. Nothing else would even excite me. So we bought that amazing outfit that weighed more than I did!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part for me was getting responses to our invitations. Once someone talked about attending the events, their outfits, flight, or if they’re staying at the hotel; that really excited me and it made it feel real for me.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone talked a lot about the food! Manohar’s Delhi Palace is the best! We go to their restaurant all the time and love their food! For the wedding, they came through and delivered.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There are too many to jot down! But we actually loved looking out and seeing our guests having a good time. We also had so many amazing moments with out bridal party and we loved having such an amazing team on our side!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My advice would be to give yourself a lot of time to plan, talk to other brides, and bargain!
On the day of, don’t stress (I know, easier said than done.) The reason I say this is because you’ve done absolutely everything you can already, now everyone else (including family) will help to figure it out.

We have new stories every day, so make sure to join us tomorrow for more! I bet you will get tons of inspiring ideas.

Cincinnati, OH Indian Fusion Wedding by Asaad Images

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis! If you were seeking for bridal inspiration, you've come to the right place! Today, we are double featuring Nikkee & Suraj's big wedding celebration, and believe us; you will love it. We have the marvelous shots below, captured by Asaad Images. And if that is not enough, you can also enjoy the cinematographic delight by Riant Films featured in today's Video Blog. We are starting our journey by taking a look at the process our gorgeous Maharani went through so she could have the ultimate bridal look she always wanted for her big day. And oh boy, we loved the exquisite makeup and the sleek hairstyle designed by Simply Makeup & Hair. It was unbelievable! Padma Patel complemented this dazzling look with an artistic Mehndi, adding an extra touch of traditional flair to the overall look. Once Nikkee was fully glamorized, it was time to carry on with the two wedding ceremonies hosted at the Savannah Center. The halls of this venue transformed into a magical setting reminiscent of the interiors of an Indian palace, thanks to the perfect planning and fabulous decor crafted by B3 Event Management. After the wedding ceremonies, a vibrant reception party took place. And we wish we would have been there as everyone had the time of their lives celebrating the newlyweds and dancing to the beats of DJ Samir Productions. For dinner time, all the guests enjoyed the mouth-melting plates prepared by Tandoor, right before having a bite at the delicious cake baked by Cakes by Reva. You can always be transported back into this magical celebration of love by taking a look at the jaw-dropping shots we have compiled in today's gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Suraj during my first year of college. For him, it was love at first sight but I didn’t know at the time. He was always so quiet and mysterious. We slowly started texting and I would get butterflies when I saw his name. When I first heard his laugh, I knew he was special. His laugh is so infectious! Then, one random day, he wrote me a poem. And that was it.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After 6 years of dating, we came back to our small college town for our medical school commencement ball. The day before, we were planning to get a nice dinner together. On the way, he decided to go to the park we used to always take walks in. He had our friend, Yoseph, set up 6 pictures of us throughout the park to represent our years together. At each picture, Suraj beautifully told me one (of the many) reasons he loves me. At the end, he got down on one knee and popped the question. It was perfect.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part of the process was going to India and shooting our pre-wedding video. We spent the day at the farm and Suraj got to drive a tractor around. We had so much fun with the whole day and felt like Bollywood actors!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Not sure about our guests but Suraj and I definitely enjoyed our reception the most. Suraj’s brother, Sagar, and my basically sister, Manisha organized such a wonderful night. They got all our families and friends to put together dances depicting how Suraj and I fell in love. They somehow also managed to teach Suraj a surprise dance for me. It was perfect.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment was when I was walking down the aisle with my uncles and brothers at my side. I saw my grandma dancing, my parents’ eyes filled with emotions and my husband-to-be anxiously waiting for me. After all the stresses of planning and making sure everything was perfect, it was happening! It was the most beautiful moment that I’ll never forget.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
You will spend countless of hours planning and making sure everything goes perfect. On the day of, take a breath and just enjoy the day (as impossible as it may seem). Only you will notice all the small things that aren’t going as planned.

That is all for today, darlings! Stay home, be safe, and don't forget to join us tomorrow for a new lovely story!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My proposal was absolutely the cutest thing!  Since I am originally from Tampa, Florida (I am a true Floridian and love my state), Jeff knew it would be important for me to get engaged at home.  In addition to that he chose one of my favorite locations (which is the beach) with our most precious little Nico.  I could tell that he was acting a bit nervous when we were walking on the beach and it become more apparent when he had to take random pictures near a lifeguard stand until he got on one knee.  Perfect day!
 
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.
To start the planning process, I did a lot of research online.  This was a very busy time in my life as I was completing my last year in fellowship so I tried to do as much as possible during random times.  In regard to our venue, we had a number on our list but as soon as we walked into the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA (Hamilton Roof Top Garden) we knew that it was the perfect venue for us!  It had an amazing view:)  I am also so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with amazing people that made the wedding so special.  I cannot thank enough Beauty by Archana/Jassi for my beautiful hair, Mandaps by Dhoom for a beautiful set up for the ceremony, and DJ Ravi Jackson for the can't miss Baraat.  In addition, my wedding photos (Twisted Oaks) and videographer (Fiore Films) are the best in the business.  We had the Bachelor Boy's for our band and it was such a fun time on the dance floor and we highly recommend them for any wedding!!!!  Thank you Jennifer at Kaleidoscope Weddings for coordinating everything on such a busy day.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my wedding, I decided to have a traditional South Indian Sari for the Indian ceremony and then a white dress for the reception.  Since I was planning my wedding during a busy time in my professional career, I was lucky that my dad and youngest brother were able to go to India and pick out the fabric and colors (gold, red and green) and then tailor them according the bridal party's specifications.  Since the wedding was in the summer, I really wanted to have a good color scheme for my bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The color that I ended up choosing was glacier and I think everyone looked amazing. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our wedding guests absolutely loved the Baratt and the Indian ceremony.  Since it was a fusion wedding, some of the guests had never been to a wedding with Indian components before.  They had an amazing experience witnessing the prayers and rituals that were performed for the ceremony in addition to seeing a fun filled Baraat with plenty of dancing!!  In addition, we had Alicia Finger for Live Event Painting.  During the ceremony, she depicted us during our first dance and it was absolutely amazing.  It captured us perfectly and the guests enjoyed watching her and the painting unfold!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I would say the most special moment in the wedding was having my mom and dad walk me down that aisle towards the Mandap.  I know this is one of my dad's proudest moments and it made me so happy to see the joy in his eyes (and my mom as well) throughout the night.  It was very important for him to have an Indian component to the wedding in addition to having my bothers involved.  A family moment that will never be forgotten.  The other special thing for me was having a table dedicated to past loved ones on both sides of the family.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The best words that I can say is to cherish your wedding day because it will go by so fast (with a blink of the eye).  Enjoy the moment with your family and friends because this is truly a celebration for all involved.

We hope you are enjoying this celebration as much as we are. If so, don't miss the upcoming wedding reception!
