Palatine, IL Indian Wedding by Juan Alvarado Photography

Wednesday is always a good day for a big boost of inspiration, Maharanis! That's why today's wedding reel it's a total visual artistic production by Juan Alvarado Photography. I'm sure it will leave you in complete awe. Shreena & Anshul's love story goes back in time to when they started their romance as college sweethearts. How sweet is that? Despite the pandemic, these two decided to marry and downsize their plans and celebrate with their closest ones. To make their wedding dreams come true, they enlisted the highly talented J2R Events' team. They plan the most extraordinary ceremony at the Shree Swaminarayan Temple that was live-streamed and followed by as many as 200 guests around the world. Brilliant! The ceremony was not only meaningful but magical thanks to the fabulous decor by VP Impressions. The creative team filled the entire venue with a romantic vibe, soft hues, and fresh blooms. The couple had the most special day, overflowing with love, dances, and smiles, as captured by Joseph Kang Photography. Including Maharani's Shreena hair and makeup by Hala Beauty as well as Raja's Anshul's style! You can check out more of the images hereJuan Alvarado Photography filmed their big day in an extraordinary reel that will transport the lovebirds back in time and allow them to relive their most important day! Tissues ready, ladies. This film is an emotional one! Just hit play  below.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
So Anshul and I met years ago in college. He visited Indiana University for an NCAA tournament game with some friends and through our mutual connection (my cousin/his friend) we met at a birthday party that night. Nothing happened and after that night we went our own ways. A couple years later we bumped into each other while living in downtown Chicago. I thought he recognized me at a pizza place, but he didn't (he kind of forgot who I was). We both got a laugh out of it after the fact! We continued to run into each other unplanned at different restaurants and bars throughout the city and, after this happened a few times, he finally got the courage to ask me out and the rest is history!

Anshul and I have gone through a lot together as couple and grown together. For me, there wasn't just one moment where I thought he was the one. It was his constant acts of kindness and love that made me realize he is the one. He has supported me throughout our relationship and I know he will always have my back.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Anshul told me his work was having a summer party at a nice Italian restaurant along the Chicago Riverwalk! He had a "fake" email invite/flyer and everything. As we walked alongside the river, we stopped right in front of the restaurant we were supposed to go into - he said we should take a moment to look at the beautiful skyline and it was a hot Summer day so I didn't mind a quick break. I stood there actually admiring this view as the sun was about to set. When I turned around he was down on one knee saying his blurb! I was so shocked I couldn't process everything that was going on! After the proposal, he surprised me with a party where some of our close friends and family were there to celebrate!

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.
We got engaged in August of 2018 and decided to plan our wedding for May 2020. We had our venue, hair & makeup, outfits, decor and everything else planned to the final detail.

Unfortunately, the pandemic hit in March of 2020 and we had to change everything at short notice. There was so much uncertainty on what would happen: the number of people we could accommodate, vendor/venue availability, and the virus itself. We couldn't have the wedding on May 9th as we had planned but our family and close friends in Chicago surprised us with a drive-by and our brothers surprised us with a beautiful video with messages from all of our friends and family. Seeing all the love surrounding us gave us confidence to move on with our wedding.

We re-planned our wedding for July 3rd - new venue, just 50 guests, and only one event rather than the 4-day, 400-person celebration we had originally planned. While we were unable to have the wedding we had originally planned, our vendors could not have been more supportive throughout the re-planning process. They took all the necessary measures to make sure our wedding was perfect and that attendees were safe.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My parents, brother, and I traveled to India in November 2019 for wedding shopping. This was the first dress I tried on and we all fell in love with it! It just felt too good to be true to love the first dress. I kept trying on dresses but could not get this one out of my mind. That's how I knew it was the one!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was seeing how all our friends and family came together to shower us with so much love and support through adverse times. To have people who loved and supported us no matter what was truly amazing and not taken for granted. The re-planning process brought upon us many obstacles, but their support and care helped us get through it in one piece! Their texts, phone calls, FaceTimes, and love will have a place in our hearts forever.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved how we made them feel apart of it even though they couldn't attend in person. We had a live Zoom link which allowed us to have over 200 friends and family from all over the world present on our wedding day - technology is amazing!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A special moment that I keep replaying in my head is our first look. The moment when I placed my hand on Anshul's back and he turned around is something I will remember forever. It was just us. Just us before the chaos began. We both cried, laughed, and held each other's hands. It felt like all our worries and the stresses of planning a wedding and then re-planning a wedding all went away in that one moment.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Just breathe! I know that sometimes in the middle of planning the decisions you have to make seem like the end of the world, but they're not! I learned from this pandemic that you can plan and plan and plan and things just don't always go the way they are supposed to. Yes, you will remember that day for ever but you will also remember all the moments before it. So make it count. Have fun picking out the dress, choosing that vendor you really like, and eating a ton at food tastings. Because you will also remember those moments as well. I promise you will have a beautiful day no matter what as long as you just enjoy the journey.

Allentown, NJ Indian Wedding by Priyanca Rao Photography

Hi Ladies, Today's wedding is a one-of-a-kind union that was bursting with sophistication and personality, but above all, it exuded tons of love! It simply enchanted me! The gorgeous Indian wedding of Niki and Neil was beautifully planned to perfection by Details Made Simple. The mesmerizing result is a feast for the eyes you can contemplate, thanks to the stunning wedding album created by one of the best top photographers in NYC, Priyanca Rao Photography. So dreamy! The images unfold all the unique and magnificent details that surrounded the newlyweds during their luxury affair. Set in the enchanting Ashford Estate, the ceremony was a beautiful ritual decorated with white floral designs and a rustic glam mandap. After the ceremony, the couple celebrated their love with their family and friends in the venue's gardens that were ideal for hosting the reception. At the same time, the beautiful sunset made the whole scene even more magical! Shout out to MDS Floral for creating such a romantic atmosphere. Maharani Niki boasted major glamour, wearing an alluring lehenga with adorable pink embroidered flowers for her ceremony, and danced the night away in a gold ruffle lehenga. Her assembles were completed with a perfect hair and makeup combo created by Deepti S. She looked just breathtaking! Raja Neil also looked absolutely dapper at the reception, wearing a classic black tux and bow tie. There is so much to love about this look, as it really brought some sophisticated vibes to the night. There are tons of more details ready to be unveiled. Take a look at the photos below, and also make sure to visit our complete gallery. Prepared to be mesmerized, ladies!

Palatine, IL Indian Wedding by Joseph Kang Photography

Hi Ladies, we are happy to relive Shreena and Anshul's wedding ceremony held at Shree Swaminarayan Temple in Palatine, IL. Special thanks to Joseph Kang Photography's team, who captured the unique way this lovely pair decided to honor their cultural heritage. I especially love the portraits beforehand. The images are a stunning visual record of a sweet, intimate moment! But before we go any further, let's talk about Shreena's bridal look. While we are in love with every detail of her stunning lehenga choli and Polki jewels, what really stole the show was the soft-pink florals that dolled up her bun. Hala Beauty created this floral hairstyle that added the right dose of grace to the entire wedding look. Bravo! Music was a priority for this pair, so they requested Ravi Sagar and DJ Krush to provide endless entertainment during the Baraat. Nothing can beat Anshul luxury open car entry that was totally flashy and cheerful. For the most special milestone of their life, the newlyweds left the planning to Chicago's premier couture event planners J2R Events. The wedding specialists organized an impeccable bash and took care of all small and large details. While VP Impressions created a delight to the guests' eyes with a structured squared mandap decorated with florals and added some imposing white roses arrangements. The result was just spectacular for the couple to exchange vows in this beautiful setting. Take a peek inside Shreena and Anshul wedding ceremony in our complete gallery.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met for the first time while in grad school in Florida for a game night with a group of friends. We didn’t really keep in touch after that and just followed each other on social media. Three years later we both ended up in California for work. Nikhil saw a story of mine in instagram and dm’d me. We decided to meet eventually and he drove an hour and half to meet me in San Diego. One thing led to the other and here we are :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
There was no formal proposal. It was very organic. We just realized we wanted to be with each other for the long run and get married.

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.
Our wedding was initially supposed to happen in Chennai, India. But then 2020 happened. Our parents were pretty sure that they wanted us to go ahead with the wedding even if they couldn’t attend. We initially considered pushing it, but just having no idea when things would get better, we decided to go ahead with the wedding on the planned date, but in California instead. While our parents couldn’t attend we had family in SoCal and in the Bay Area. We finally decided on this beautiful castle like venue in Pleasanton. A friend of mine went to the wedding venue multiple times and FaceTimed me, so that I could tour the place. The actual planning of the wedding took place over four different time zones as my Dad lives in the UAE, my mom and Nikhil’s mom in India, my sister in Toronto and us here in California. My aunt and cousin were instrumental in the whole planning process. They set up this super helpful google doc with options for vendors, websites for and outfits. We could not have pulled this wedding off without them! I used this google doc as my reference and slowly researched about each vendor and fixed on my final vendor list. Another aunt of mine suggested Sri Caterers for food catering. One of the best decisions we made as far as this wedding was concerned. Nikhil and me worked on curating a menu that would have Tamil, Telugu and Kannadiga elements to it. The food turned out to be super aunthentic and tasty. I coordinated with Sania regarding the color scheme and decor over multiple phone calls. Since I was getting everything done from San Diego, I could only connect with my vendors virtually. Our outfits were all ordered online after phone and video calls to the stores that we bought them from in Bangalore. I sent a sample blouse to my aunt and she got my wedding blouses stitched for me in the Bay Area. As far as makeup was concerned, I was basically looking for an artist that would ensure that my makeup looked natural and I looked like myself on my wedding day. Pratixa did a wonderful job with that! I shopped for my accessories online at Vriksham. They helped me put together the right accessories that would suit both my sarees. Sarees and accessories all had to be approved by my sister. She is always my go to for anything related to clothes and fashion :)  Photography, Videography and live-streaming was very important to us as our parents would not be there physically for the wedding. After going through various portfolios and live-streaming links, we decided on Wedding Documentary. We don’t regret that decision one bit. Everyone was all praise for the streaming and we love our wedding videos and photos. For the wedding background music, we requested people in singers in our families to record and send it to us. So it truly felt very personal.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I just knew I wanted one of my outfits to be a blush pink saree and I found the perfect one at Janardhana Silks.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Having done everything virtually and seeing it all come to fruition on the wedding day was the best part. It turned out exactly as we had planned.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved the venue and the food :) I think another aspect of the wedding, the guests appreciated were the personalized gift bags we ordered on Etsy with each of the wedding guest’s name etched on it.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The Saptapadi. That moment was beautiful. With Sita Kalyanam sung by Nikhil’s mom playing in the background :)

But to me the most special part of the wedding was that involved the efforts of so many people. We could not have pulled any of this off without our family and friends. While our parents couldn’t  make it to the wedding physically, they were involved in every aspect of the planning and were present throughout virtually.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There will be moments when you will be extremely overwhelmed or frustrated during the planning. Make sure you have your closest friends or family on speed dial for those moments! Definitely helps to vent every now and then :) But seriously, just trust that everything will work out in the end! You have probably already taken care of anything that was in your control.

What a great way to start this week, isn't it, ladies? Remember that we have new stories every day, so make sure to join us tomorrow for more!
