Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Zach Blum

Happy Tuesday, darlings! Get ready to enjoy Sindu & Kunj's wedding in today's Platinum Guide Blog

photo #315875

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was the most magical, adventurous proposal ever - simple, but adrenaline-pumping. Kunj was doing a rotation during his medical residency near Allentown, PA and we were doing semi-long distance with him coming back on the weekends, while I worked in Philly. He decided to surprise me with a trip to the Poconos one weekend and planned a stay at a cute, rustic (not to mention healthy homecooking) B&B named Santosha on the Ridge. After we had breakfast there, he took me to a placed called Mountain Creek Riding Stable and we galloped off down a bunch of trails with each of us on our own horses. While I was busy trying to keep my horse named Boots steady, little did I know he was carrying a ring box in his pocket the entire time. As we brought our horses back to the stable, he got down on one knee (while I was still sitting on Boots) and revealed the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. I almost blacked out from sheer excitement before I said yes and Boots almost thought the ring was an apple. Haven't looked back since :)

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was definetly planning the look and taste of the cake. I absolutely love dessert, especially cakes and have over-the-top visions for how a cake should look (brainwashed by those baking shows on the Food Network). When it came to my wedding, the whole theme was peacocks (the mandap, one of my blouses, almost everything was modeled after this theme). So, with the cake, I wanted to plan a beautiful pink cake with these gorgeous pink peacocks and silver garnishes. And it was so fulfilling to work with a baker in NJ (Palermo's Bakery) over virtual calls dishing ideas back and forth, especially as she tried to make my vision come to life by sketching out these cakes and showing pictures via text message. In the end, it not only tasted amazing but was also gorgeous to look at!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
During COVID time, my guests loved the fact that Kunj and I, along with our families, wanted so much to make this special moment one to remember for the ages. My mother along with the entire wedding planning team worked so hard to make this wedding that initially was meant for a larger group so special and beautiful, despite having a smaller number of guests. While they say Indian weddings are more about the family and not the individuals, I would beg to differ in this case. I would say our love and joy during this event was more about us even as we may have participated in rituals/traditions near and dear to our family. Our attitude in making the best out of the situation and having so much fun created an infectious, happy atmosphere that was rubbing off on everyone.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When my mother took the microphone to say some words, she mentioned that even as a little child, I sought happiness over money and she was so happy i found a partner that shared that same vision - that happiness in life was more important to go after than any other standard or metric. That moment plays over and over in my mind as it reminds me that no matter what I do in my marriage and in life from here on out, I am always going to make sure that I am swimming in happiness. And most importantly my mother wanted to support me in that journey by recognizing the value of a quality that I had long thought no one in my culture growing up was also chasing. Here was my mother saying this to me and giving me the freedom to go explore and build a different type of marriage.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't let disappointments or stressful moments in wedding planning/the wedding itself bring you down. In the end, this is a day to celebrate you finding your partner and having your family welcome you into your new stage of life. And if you still feel that you missed out a key element of your big day, you can always plan another separate ceremony. With COVID disrupting my original wedding date and marriage license plans, I now am on my third marriage (zoom ceremony, hindu non legal ceremony, and the legal ceremony) to the same person - plenty of opportunities to celebrate.

So don't think twice, our a glass of your favorite beverage, and get ready to enjoy the mesmerizing film captured by the talented and highly experienced crew at Hakim's Studio. Every scene of this wedding is beautiful as inspiring, and it certainly is the best way to start this Wednesday off with the right foot. Although everything was fantastic, nothing compared to the captivating look of our gorgeous Maharani Malavika. She was a vision of beauty, and we loved her bridal look so much that we are still sighing over it. The traditional and fashionable Saree from Sakhi Boutique, the exquisite makeup by Makeup with Veena, and the sleek hairstyle designed by Femme Beauty by Bhavna were all a perfect combination of beauty and traditional flair. But that is not all! She took her fashion game to the next level with the fabulous Mehndi outlined by Forever Beauty by Manisha. And we cannot stress how much we loved it! If you don't want to miss any detail of this lovely wedding, hit the play icon below, and get ready to have a great time. You will love it! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met at a pizza shop in Tallahassee, Florida. (You can see our story with pictures on our website!)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Jai told me that we were attending a work party. I was tricked! Once I got to the top of the SCAD building in Midtown, Atlanta, I was surprised with a outdoor path of milestone pictures. Our siblings (my sister and his brother) were there as well with signs.

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.
Planning a wedding and then replanning during a pandemic was difficult! It had its ups and downs. We had all of our vendors booked and all decisions made by the first week of March... right before everything shut down! So we had to be creative and replan.

We ended up hiring vendors for photography and videography, food, and hair/makeup/mehndi... nothing else! Everything else was DIY based on visions we had for our bigger wedding but down to scale. We did decor, music, everything else!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted to do red because it was the most transitional. I ended up wearing a sari because it’s the most custom in Konkani culture (I am Konkani and Jai, my now husband, is Gujarati)

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think it was the most enjoyable planning the little details such as wedding favors (I.e custom popcorn box we made for the attendees, personalized masks and mask bags). It felt very personal and unique, a way to bring out or personalities and maybe something we might not have been able to do if we had a bigger wedding as previously planned.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think the guests were pleasantly surprised about a couple of things. 1) how intimate and fun the wedding was due to size because everyone was involved in some way and connected through the whole ceremony 2) the personalized favors as mentioned in the last question

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think just the ceremony in general, having everyone in that small room pay attention, laugh along with us... it was so intimate and I would not trade it for the bigger wedding.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
No matter how much you plan, there will be random last minute things that do not go according to plan. Take deep breaths, reach out to support, and remember that at the end of all this, you will be married and it will be worth it!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Every vendor listed here was AMAZING in hearing our needs, working with us, and being flexible through the pandemic wedding journey (even pre-pandemic). I genuinely highly recommend each vendor listed here.

We are preparing somehting extra special for you tomorrow, so make sure to join us.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was summer 2019 when Rathna & Ritesh’s love story first began. Just 2 single people who happened to swipe right on Dil Mil (Indian dating app). Our first date felt like it was out of a movie. We went to 4-5 different restaurants at Shops of Legacy/Legacy West where we shared various meals and desserts. Ended up walking around and making each other laugh. Weeks went into months and we connected over various methods of communication and social media. Thru this, we discovered a mutual love of sports, food, and randomness. Soon enough, Rathna & Ritesh started meeting each other’s close friends.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As time progressed, Rathna & Ritesh enjoyed other’s company and grew fond of each other. Ritesh decided it was time for the families to meet over a Thanksgiving meal. Soon enough, Valentine’s Day approached and Ritesh popped the question and Rathna delightfully answered, “Maybe!” (Just kidding. The answer was a yes!).

As their families started talking more and more and things seemed right, COVID-19 pandemic put a kink into everyone’s lives. However, we decided that the time was right for us to officially tie the knot, and we couldn’t be more excited!

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 came down to the fact that COVID-19 was very unpredictable and we wanted everyone to be safe and healthy. For those reasons, we wanted a venue that provided both outdoor and indoor options and be big and spacious even though our guest count was low. Hair and makeup wise I was already familiar with a lady that I worked with for a previous event. Outfits - I need to thank my cousin who was my stylist. I had no particulars about color schemes and really went with the flow on the outfits choosen. The venue made it a lot convenient for me by providing decor. Found my cake thru theknot.com. DJ and home decor was found thru recommendations and good ole Google.com.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My saree selections came from doing virtual shopping with my cousin in India. We had an absolute blast WhatsApp video calling and shopping together virtually while being at different parts of the world.
We didn't have a color scheme in mind rather knew what general colors looked good on me and proceeded from there. We ended up doing a lot more bonding.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was seeing my family and friends come together to help with this project. Though COVID-19 pandemic created chaos and changed our initial plans for a big wedding, it didn't deter from people coming together and bonding more so.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
How intimate the wedding was. Usually, Desi weddings are big and it's hard to mingle and get to know one another. The intimacy made the event more special.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The really special moment in my wedding that constantly replays in my mind is the moment my mother and I hugged. We both became emotional, but neither one of us had to say anything as we have this special bond. My mother has been a major rock in my life and that was plenty for me.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be flexible and go with the flow. There is no such as "a perfect day". In the end, it's about your families and the person you are marrying.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Cake was unique as it came from the The London Baker. My closest girl friends and I bonded over cake tasting and thoroughly enjoyed the process together. Definitely a memorable event for

That is all for this week ladies. Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to join us on Monday for more!

San Mateo, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by International Wedding

Hello there, ladies! It feels great to be back because we were dying to share Niharika & Saikumar's enchanting wedding with all of you! So, get comfortable, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, and get ready to enjoy it! We're starting with Niharika & Saikumar's love dripping wedding ceremony hosted at the San Mateo Marriott. The ceremony was a luxurious affair overflowing with tradition and beauty thanks to the marvelous decor crafted by Royal Event Rentals. Everything was so beautiful and enchanting that it seemed almost surreal. It may easily have been the recreation of an Indian fairy tale brought to real life. The grandeur of the occasion reflected in our lovely couple's traditional and fashionable looks, but still, it was our blushing Maharani who stole the show. She trusted her beauty needs to TM's Makeup Artistry, and we have no words to describe how unique her final look was! Without any question, this was the dreamy ceremony that these two lovebirds always wanted. They sealed the deal with their first kiss as husband and wife while placing each other's wedding rings in the middle of cheers and rose petals. What a magical ending to an incredible ceremony! After becoming husband and wife, it was time to celebrate with a luxurious reception party animated by Music Mantra DJs. They owned the dancefloor and put everyone on their feet. The only time the dancing stopped was to take a bite at the delicious cake baked by La Patisserie. Without any question, a sweet ending for a sweet and charming story. If you can't get enough of this wedding, don't miss today's gallery by International Wedding Photography. It is breathtaking, and you'll love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband on the Labor day weekend in 2015 in Las Vegas at a pool party in Mandalay Bay. After 2 years of dating, one day I saw my then boyfriend , now husband help out a friend through a very difficult time. He was responsible, nurturing and in control of the situation , that is when i realised that he was the most Stand Up guy I had ever met.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I proposed to my husband in 2018 in Cascal Mountain View, and asked him to take his time to figure out if he wanted to take the leap.

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 had to plan a wedding in 3 months . Our parents finalized the day on Feb 28th 2019. We started with fixing on a budget ( split the bill halfway). Methodically tackled --> ceremonies to be organized, guestlist, family accommodation, gifts for our families , catering and then the venue(first priority in terms of the budget allocation) and then visited the bridal expo to finalize on decor, photography, and DJ vendors. My husband and I happen to be very skilled in working under tight deadlines.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since i chose the boy, I wore the Saree and the Lehenga my family chose. They went through a good 20 outfits before closing in on both my dresses.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The planning brought out the aesthetic sense that I never knew my husband had. I realized he was on the low creating pintrest boards for our wedding decor . It was very sweet.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The personal touches in our gift bags and the fact that it was small and intimate.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Seeing each other in our wedding outfits for the first time during varmala exchange.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Learn to be calm and not be overwhelmed. The most important thing that matters is that you will be joining in matrimony with the love of your life.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehendi - Radhika Jajoo did 24 pairs of hands in a mere 6 hrs and they were intricate and beautiful.
The cake from La Patesserie was so scrumptious that they earned a number of loyal customers from our wedding. Jewelry was mainly Gold and Kundan from India.
