Bay Area, CA Indian Wedding by Usman Baporia Photography

Vaninder & Kenny's Pinterest worthy Indian wedding will leave you with a virtual box of empty pins because each stunning moment captured by Usman Baporia Photography will take your inspiration to the next level. Working alongside Khadija Hansia of Limelight Productions, a timeless fairytale hatched that we are certain guests are still talking about. Our bride glowed from head to foot while donning a flowing, unbelievable off the shoulder lengha that was a mixture of modern sophistication and Bollywood flair. The ballroom at the Chabot Space and Science Center was transformed into a luxurious oasis by Saba Décor Rentals with a glowing sweetheart stage that was festooned with white and golds adorned with rustic charm. This ballroom affair was captured elegantly with all the images in our gallery

Bay Area, CA Indian Wedding by Usman Baporia Photography

Lovelies! Today I bring you a visionary treat by Usman Baporia Photography that is overflowing with ravishing moments, a magnificent Maharani, and authentic love. Vaninder and Kenny's multi-day Indian wedding has me smiling from ear to ear taking place in the bride's parent's very own backyard. Having been swept away by the proposal in Boboli Gardens in Florence, this bride was ready for another night of celebrating. The bride utilized the talents of Instagram to help find the perfect red wedding lengha and seeing Vaninder's father help her get ready is turning on the waterworks at full speed. Perfectly orchestrated, Khadija Hansia of Limelight Productions ensured a fantastic unveiling of events. I have a sneak peek of the amazing décor by Saba Décor Rentals down below with the overload of love in our gallery

Honolulu, Hawaii Indian Wedding by MeewMeew Studios

Honolulu is the ultimate destination for beach weddings and it was chosen by Punita and Rutvij to celebrate their luxury Indian affair. Beautifully designed by Mira Savara Events, this perfect beach wedding had a marvelous conclusion with a lavish reception at The Royal Hawaiian. The resort’s hall was a dream come true with multicolor floral centerpieces and a dazzling sweetheart table that gave a tropical air to the ambiance, all the magical décor was created by the brilliant décor team of Steven Boyle Design. The good-looking newlyweds were captured at their wedding stage by MeewMeew Studios, who also captured all the highlights of the night, including the best moments at the dance floor thanks to DJ Gaurav. Punita twirled all night all in a heavily embroidered silver gown and Rutvij looked amazing under the party lights in an elegant black tuxedo. Take a few minutes to admire all the beauty of this traditional Indian affair in Hawaiian in our full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him through a little known app called Coffee Meets Bagel. We had a lot in common and clicked immediately. I knew he was the one, because as simple as it may seem, everything was easy between us - the laughter, the smiles and just being with him.  
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
One of things that is on my NYC bucketlist is to have a picnic at Central Park. We tried that year, but unfortunately we could not make it happen. So instead Rutvij surprised me with a gorgeous indoor picnic (literally pinterest worthy) and then took me to a bar where all our nearest and dearest were. It was definitely one of the best nights of my life. 
 
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.
The decision to have our wedding in Hawaii was a very personal one. A few years ago, I lost my mother. One of the last conversations I shared with her, we talked about my to-be wedding day and she told me to have a small destination wedding in Hawaii. I never thought we would actually end up doing our wedding here, but ultimately it seemed to in the end make the most perfect sense. I was very happy to honor her memory. My wedding planner Mira was phenomenal and really helped us throughout the process. My wedding went so smoothly because of her, and I am so grateful for that.
 
Hair and makeup was a bit difficult for me, and I had several trials in Hawaii. In the end, I wanted someone I could trust, and had worked with Indian brides before. From my friends, I found Susmita and ultimately I'm so glad I hired her because the one thing I never stressed about during my wedding events was my hair and makeup. She was always on top of it. 
 
I researched a great deal to determine what outfits I wanted. I had the general theme for each outfit in mind, the hard part was finding it. I tried looking locally without success, so took a week to do my wedding shopping in India. It was probably the most stressful part of this entire process, but in the end it all worked out. 
 
Because it was a destination wedding, it was very important to me that that my guests have a great time. This included music with a great DJ, a great atmosphere and obviously delicious food as well as drinks. My decor themes were already decided ahead of time (with a little help with pinterest). I wanted the welcome party to be a Hawaiian-esque, the sangeet to be filled of color, as an ode to my culture and the wedding to be filled of soft peach and pink colors to backdrop the ocean and my reception was purple, turquoise and gold - peacock colors essentially. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had the color peach in mind. I really wanted to move away from traditional red. It is a destination wedding after all and I envisioned that color to look really beautiful in an outdoor wedding. I tried on many, many dresses. It was a back and forth, but my mind always came back to this dress. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I really enjoyed every part of the planning process to be honest. It was really a labor of love, because this was not only a celebration of two people in love but two families coming together. I think the best part I would say as stressful as it was, was going wedding shopping in India. It was very chaotic, but I did it with my now mother-in-law and we really bonded through the experience.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
A lot of my guests appreciated how well planned and organized our wedding was. I was told by multiple people how this was one of the best planned weddings they went to. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our wedding was in Honolulu which is very busy and touristy. It wasn't until our wedding morning that we were able to escape for a short time together to take pictures by the water. I remember how terrified I was, but standing on top of rocks near the water holding the hand of the man I love felt pretty incredible. 
 
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.
Because we were in Hawaii we wanted to make sure we included some elements of Hawaii in each of our events. Our Welcome Party was an ode to Hawaii, so we had fresh pineapples adorned on all the tables. Because our wedding was small, it was important for my guests to feel special and feel intimate. Both my husband and I greeted guests with leis as they walked in. We also had a hula dance performance. 
 
For our sangeet, we really wanted it to feel like a festival of song and dance. We started off surprising the guests with Hawaiian fire dancers, which were amazing. Then family and friends performed dances and we capped off the night with garba and raas. 
 
Our cocktail hour had a Hawaiian ukuele player, and was outdoors overlooking Diamond Head. 
 
I love to dance but my husband is a bit dance-shy. However, for our wedding he agreed to take dance classes with me. For 3 months we practiced a ballroom dancing and salsa routine to perform as our first dance. It was definitely challenging, but I am so glad we were able to do it.  
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
First and foremost, stay organized and rally in as much support as you can. Do your research with vendors, ask necessary questions and perhaps talk to others who have hired them to get an idea. It is definitely stressful, and easy to get lost in the details. In those moments, remember what your wedding really is about: you and your significant other.

 

Happy wedding Wednesday, loves!
