Melville, NY Indian Wedding by House of Talent Studio

Hello there, beautiful ladies! It is time to celebrate and enjoy the recent union of our lovebirds through their incredible and vibrant wedding reception. So we hope you are ready to have some fun because this event will make you have a blast! Held inside the halls of the exclusive Hilton Long Island / Huntington, this reception party was something out of this world! Once again, the winning combination of House of Dipali on the decor and Chandai Events on the planning and execution managed to surprise us and left us speechless with such a magnificent event. And if this was not enough, Bollywood DJs took care of the musical mood that lit the dance floor and put all the guests on their feet to the rhythm of the hits of the moment. Those who were not dancing were enjoying the delicious plates that Akbar Restaurant prepared for this gala. So there was no excuse for not having fun, whether eating or dancing, all the guests had a night to remember! Without a doubt, this was the best way for Rupa & Krishen to celebrate their wedding in the company of their family and closest friends. The night was coming to an end when our beautiful couple had the first cut at the cake that City Cakes prepared for this gala. And although the wedding festivities are coming to an end with this event, Rupa & Krishen's everlasting love story has just begun! If you want to enjoy the most beautiful moments of this wedding again, go to our gallery! The good friends at House of Talent Studio have shared the best photos of this celebration, and we have compiled them for you to have a visual delight! So don't miss it out!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on the dating app "Coffee Meet Bagel". We met in New York where I was doing my residency, and he was working in a national lab in Long Island. I knew he was the one when I had a cold and he immediately wanted to drop everything and take me to the doctor- this was just three weeks into dating! After one month of dating, Krishen told me he accepted a job in Alabama and had to move a few weeks after. We had to decide what to do, and naturally, we felt we were too in love to let go, and for two and a half years, we dated long distance.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Krishen took me to an animal sanctuary upstate. He knows I am a huge animal lover. So, after we toured the area, we saw a cute cat roaming around the sanctuary. We both knelt down to pet the cat. I stood, and he remained, on one knee and proposed! 
 
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.
I found Maharani Weddings website very helpful! I found my hair and makeup through the site. Because I was in my last year of residency, I was not able to travel to India to find an outfit. However, we found Sai Fashions in hicksville and found all wedding attire there. For decor, I love colors, and since the wedding was at the beginning of summer, I wanted a fresh colorful decor for the ceremony with pinks, yellows greens and purple. For the evening, we wanted to go for a more romantic look with soft pinks that would complement my peacock colored sari.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I did not want to go for the conventional wedding sari colors. When I laid my eyes on a pink fuchsia sari, I knew this was exactly what I wanted. It was sparkly and perfect for summer.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of planning was the cake tasting. Of course, who doesn't love cake! It was the one portion of planning I was able to do with my then-fiance as we were in a long-distance relationship.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved the ambiance of the wedding- the decor, all the traditions that are typical in a south Indian wedding. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
After I walked into the wedding ceremony- a curtain was between Krishen and me. I will never forget the moment once the curtain dropped and I saw Krishen for the first time. I became filled with excitement and overcome with emotions. 
 
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.
We had a Mendhi party at my home in long island. It was a small gathering of all my girlfriends. The following evening, we had the Haldi event at the hotel where all our friends and family gathered to apply Haldi on Krishen, and then on me. 
My college friend, Sowjanya Kilaru, is a professional dancer. She put together several dances that all my friends performed including highschool friends, college friends, and podiatry school friends. Finally, as a surprise to my husband, I jumped in and danced as well!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy every moment of all your wedding events. Don't worry about the small details. You will remember all the joys of celebrating your wedding with your family and friends.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We absolutely loved our cake, thanks to City Sweets and Confections. The decoration was beautiful and matched my sari. Moreover, the cake was so delicious. I really wanted to have a cake that was more than a simple white cake with flowers and I was beyond impressed. The cake was just as delicious when we had our top layer on our first wedding anniversary.

 

See you all on Wednesday!

After the Baraat, it was time to move on with the ceremony that united Arshia & Neil in marriage. Tum Hi Ho Events planned and executed this ceremony to perfection while Elegant Affairs took care of the decor. And what a great job these two made! Their talent and expertise they have were reflected in every single detail surrounding this magical event, taking it to the next level.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through family friends who were trying to set us up.  I think we both had little to no expectations before we met so it ended up being a good surprise.  There was a point after dating where I was going through a rough patch at work.  Rushi would listen to me complain (a lot) and be supportive.  Something unpleasant happened with my supervisors, and I remember when I told him what happened - he was so upset.  Probably more upset than me.  I remember thinking, "Wow, he really cares about me.  This could be it."  The next 2 years sealed the deal!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had been planning a trip to Ireland.  Rushi had already been there before but this was my first time visiting there.  We rented a car and drove along the countryside, visiting some new places for him and his favorites we had been before.  We were in Killarney visiting Killarney National Park.  We started walking into this forest-like area off the beaten path.  We were getting deeper and deeper in the forest (I was starting to panic a bit).  We reached a clearing where it was large, circle of mowed grass encircled by large trees.  In the middle of this, there was a gazebo with some benches. He sat down first, and as I was about to sit down next to him, I noticed this ring on the bench.  I picked it up and told him, " look, someone left their ring."  He responded with, "yes, I will marry you."  And now the running joke is that I proposed to him lol.  

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 our wedding was a bit of a challenge as our families are in different locations.  We considered multiple locations but ended up picking home for me - Fort Worth, TX.  We looked at venues that could accommodate what we were looking for in a venue - an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception.  We ended up picking the Worthington Renaissance Hotel in Sundance Square - they had an amazing rooftop terrace with fountains that we thought would be perfect for the ceremony.

Venues took some time overall.  I visited a lot of them and hardest part would be availability.  Some were booked almost 2 years in advance.  But it was worth it to keep looking for the right place.  

Hair and make up - I did my own makeup for my mehndi, pithi, and rehearsal dinner.  For the wedding and reception, Rushi and my mom convinced me that I should have someone help me so it would be one less thing to worry about.  They were absolutely they were right.  I didn't do a trial but I looked at Instagram photos to figure out whose style I liked - MUA who would accomplish the look I was looking for.  The HMUA who did get me ready for both ceremony/reception did an amazing job - my makeup stayed right where it was supposed to all night and she accomplished the look without the use of so many products.

Decor theme - because we wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony - we tried to keep it simple.  We had a garden theme - with pink and white flowers and green foliage.  We used lanterns and birdcages along the aisle that were repurposed as reception centerpieces.  

DJ - We spent a lot of time finding a DJ.  We wanted someone who would turn our reception into a party. 
 We used this company called Outspoken Visions and they were amazing!  They were so flexible, moved out Gobo Monogram from the cocktail area, had a tabla player, worked with us on the uplighting.  Could not say enough nice things about this company!

Cake/Donuts - we opted to have cupcakes for the guests and a 6" naked cutting cake for us.  We wanted our guests to have options.  We got our cupcakes from Gigi's Cupcakes in North Fort Worth.  They did a fabulous job setting up and Kristi was so pleasant to work with.  I had seen donut walls on Instagram and really wanted to have one.  I worked with Angie at FunkyTown Donuts.  They also were so easy to work with and did an excellent job setting up and making suggestions that would work for our wedding.  

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Outfits - I went shopping with my mom and aunt at Sari Palace in Oakland, CA.  I had tried looking locally in DFW and also Atlanta at Global Mall with no luck.  Sari Palace had a huge selection and the outfits were customizable - such a great experience working with them.  I tried on about 20 total outfits before I decided on a lengha.  I love the color pink so it just ended that both my ceremony/reception outfits had pink or pink hues in it.  I loved that it had a contemporary look but yet still looked fitting for a bridal outfit.  I picked a Sherwani for Rushi that was similar to my bridal outfit (he didn't care what he wore lol). For the reception, my outfit was a dusty rose.  Rushi and I had picked a blue suit for him so he wore a tie matching my outfit.  

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly - being done, or rather checking things off our list.  I think both Rushi and I were really excited when the rehearsal dinner started because we knew that we had done our best and we were gonna have fun going forward no matter what.  

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We tried to keep our wedding casual.  The venue was in the middle of Sundance Square where people could walk around to go shopping or eating.  We had a later ceremony start time of 2p and reception to follow.  We asked that our bridesmaids and groomsmen wear whatever they want in shades of either gold/white/pink.  I think we wanted everyone to just come and enjoy themselves.

Oh and the donut wall 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance.  We didn't practice at all - we hadn't entirely decided if we would do a first dance until the week of.  Rushi loves Celion Dion (rightfully so) so we danced to "That's The Way It Is."  We just went in circles, but I remember being just really excited in that moment.  

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to enjoy the day of, it really does go by so fast.

 

This photoshoot is the perfect preamble for what's coming next, so stay close if you don't want to miss the upcoming wedding ceremony!

Seattle, WA Indian Wedding by Jerome Tso Photography

Welcome back, beautiful ladies! We are glad you could join us to continue enjoying this nuptial celebration. This time, we will be heading to the wedding ceremony in a vibrant and joyful Baraat procession that you don't want to miss. So, let's jump right into it! We love how Akhil decided to embrace a traditional style and show up at the Baraat procession riding a white horse decorated with traditional Indian fabrics! This colorful procession created a striking scene that combined modern architecture on the buildings with classic Indian colors and attires! And we cannot stress how much we love this scene! After the arrival of the Baraat, our two lovebirds were ready to go inside the exclusive Fairmont Olympic Hotel to proceed with the wedding ceremony that joined their lives forever. Once again, the talented folks from Universal Decor managed to surprise us with another lovely decoration and with a captivating Mandap. The combination of soft colored adornments with multicolored floral arrangements from Nalini's Flowers and Decor is fantastic! There is no doubt that this was a dreamy ceremony that everyone loved and enjoyed to the fullest. And we want to make a special shoutout to Jerome Tso Photography for perpetuating this solemn and life-changing event in such a beautiful way. Through each shot, you get to relive this wedding ceremony, and you get to feel the same emotions that surrounded this adorable event.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Nowadays, online dating is the way most people meet. But, that’s not how we met. We took the more traditional route...paper dating (aka biodatas). His biodata was sent through a family friend. Little did I know, this would be the beginning of our love story. We slowly got to know each other via text and FaceTime, which our first FaceTime session lasted 6 hours! He was easy to talk to and we surprisingly had a lot in common (down to carrot cake being our favorite!). It was then, I knew he was a keeper! 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My groom, been born and raised on an island, we knew our engagement would take place at his home island, Saint Croix. Only after a short 6 months, we fell in love and took the dive into getting engaged. My entire family flew down to the US Virgin Islands to celebrate our engagement. Everyone knew about his proposal plans...except for me, of course. All this time, I thought the engagement ceremony would be his proposal. I was wrong. He proposed in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, next to Buck Island. With only crystal clear water surrounding us, he got down on one knee. He was smart...even if I had said “no”, I would have nowhere to go. Lucky for him, I said “yes”. 
 
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 took place in Seattle, WA. And lucky for me, my husband and I did everything together. Venue hunting was probably the most difficult task during the wedding planning process. A lot of the vendors we chose were recommendations from family and friends. Also, social media played a huge part in vendor hunting. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I’m thankful for my mom, she spent hours around Mumbai shopping for my bridal clothing. That also included being woken up at 2-3am for 2 weeks to pick out clothes through WhatsApp video. I knew I wanted to wear something traditional for the wedding (red and white). And for my Sangeet, my husband and I decided to wear similar colors and that worked out perfectly. And for my reception, I wanted to wear something more western so I went with a formal gown. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
One of the best parts about wedding planning was definitely all the hours we put into dance practice for the Sangeet. This brought all the immediate and extended family together to be part of the planning process and it was absolute joy! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We were so happy that everyone loved everything the vendors provided eg. the decorations, food, music, our photographer/videographer, and florist. We had a lot of family flying in from all over the country and even from India. Everyone had a blast during our Sangeet, as in literally everyone was on the dance floor for hours! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I walked down the aisle to the mandap was my special moment. Seeing my future husband standing there waiting for me, all teary-eyed, made everything worth it. 
 
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.
We absolutely loved our decor for Sangeet and the reception. For the Sangeet, we went more towards Rajasthani style. Very vibrant colors, colorful camels as centerpieces on the tables, bright draping and beautiful Rajasthani umbrellas all around (the best part). For the reception, we went more fancy with blush pink draping and beautiful white flowers with gold columns. We had a dance floor for both Sangeet and Reception, and of course dhol players are a must! We had our special first dance with a fog machine. All the kiddos enjoyed the glow sticks during the dance party at the reception. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I would say, just take your time and relax. The best advice I received during my planning process is that if anything goes wrong, your guests will never know. They won’t know what’s supposed to happen and what’s not. Keep that in mind the day of the wedding, because it definitely isn’t worth the stress. Delegating tasks as much as you can on the day of is super important. You can’t be everywhere so use your bridesmaids, family members, friends, etc. they’re to help! Also, truly enjoy yourself at your wedding, it’s YOUR big day. Lastly, sleep, sleep, sleep! 
 

We still have one more stop before we wrap this celebration up! So, don't miss the upcoming wedding reception!
