Hello Maharanis! Get ready to enjoy Kristina & Shayam's wedding in today's Platinum Guide Blog!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Shayam and I actually met when we were 15 years old and over the years he became best friends with my brothers. Little did I know back then that I would end up marrying my brother's best friend, but fast forward a few years to adults and our friendship turned to romance. I knew he was the one because once we started dating he kept saying I am going to marry you!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We actually had just purchased our first home together and after weeks of renovations, he surprised me with a getaway trip to the Keys. We stayed on a beautiful private island at the Sunset Key Cottages resort.  I must say, I wasn't one for the fairytales and big surprises, but this man blew me away. He proposed on the beach just before sunset. Funny thing is I saw a woman hiding in the bushes before he proposed and come to find out it was a photographer waiting to take pictures of us.   

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.
Shortly after our engagement we got married legally and being that we just purchased a home, we decided to take a year and half to plan our official wedding ceremonies and reception. The religious aspects of our marriage was just as important to us as legally being married especially getting to share the moment with our loved ones. We had 3 venues and thankfully all went well. Our Hindu ceremony was held at the Coral Springs Center of the Arts in their courtyard. Our Nikah ceremony was held at Nur Ul Islam in Cooper City and our reception was held at The Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs.  A great photo and videographer was needed and Sugarfree Studio took good care of us capturing these wonderful moments! I did freelance makeup on the side, so it was only natural for me to do my own bridal makeup each day! A lot of work for a bride, but I was happy to do it.  My overall experience with the vendors went well and I am glad I had an amazing wedding coordinator Chire Harvey to help make it happen on the wedding weekend.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Our wedding was in the fall and I wanted to incorporate those jewel toned colors that we felt brought a classic touch with deep hues for my bridal outfits. I went with reds and gold for our Hindu ceremony and emerald green for our Nikah.  For my reception look I always wanted to wear a white Pronovias wedding dress for their beautiful delicate lace detail.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I would say the most enjoyable part of planning was preparing for our first dance. We took ballroom dancing classes at Fred Astaire in Delray Beach with the wonderful Vanessa Iurman.  This was something I always wanted to do, and we got to experience it in preparation for our first dance on our reception night.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the dancing and entertainment!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There was a moment when my husband and I said with relief, we did 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.
Indian Dance Instructor: Jayadevi Arts helped us coordinate a dance routine after our hindu ceremony to surprise our guests.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Take everything one day at a time.  Wedding planning and preparing for the big day can be overwhelming, but it is so important to remember to enjoy it while in the moment because all you have left are those memories.

Palm Springs, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Rahul Rana Photography

Don't miss Sheena & Julio's wedding in today's Platinum Guide Blog. It will take your breath away!

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.
First and foremost we kept the beautiful words of Maya Angelou in mind as we adapted the motto "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Likewise, we chose our venue and vendors with the same consciousness in mind. And we cannot sing enough praises for all the beautiful people involved in making this event a success. Did I mention, our wedding was March 14, 2020? Just imagine what was going through the minds of all our guests and dedicated vendors as the world was rapidly shutting down around us all.

Julio and I area all about planning. The first decision we made was to hire a wedding planner with experience with Indian Weddings. We knew this would be the seed to grow the roots that would support everything that was to come in planning the multiple day event, and that really paid off when we were faced with a global pandemic.

Chandani and her team at Events by C were absolute rockstars. Obsessed with spreadsheets (we love that), resourceful, graceful, calm, patient, and were pivotal in making everything a success. They took such good care of us and our families that they felt like family themselves. At any moment that something was needed before and during the events, they were always within arm's reach and made sure things happened straight away. Carly McGarry was an absolute gem of a Wedding Venue Coordinator at Omni Rancho Las Palmas and quickly became part of that dream team. We can not say enough about the kindness, flexibility, time and care she gave us. Neither of us would ever have imagined choosing a golf course as a venue, we made the decision based on Carly's hospitality, convenience for guests and experience overall that we'd be able to provide. Again, the best decision ever when we had to made last minute decisions and changes for safety protocols against many unknowns that were to come due to the pandemic. Between Events By C and Carly, they made it all look so easy and we could not be more grateful.

Archana at Manshaa & Zevara by Archana quickly became a dear friend. She put so much care into our wedding outfits, every little piece has a story and every material of the highest quality. What an amazing talent. Neha Assar's skills need no introduction and no words can describe, she puts so much care and deep meaning into every inch. She is also the most gentle kind person you could work with and she is also a friend we hold close to our hearts. Lulu and her team were absolutely amazing. There is no doubt they are the absolute best for hair and make-up, but a little fun fact is when Lulu was dolling me up was the only moment I personally felt overwhelmed by the pandemic. Lulu handled the situation like a boss and got me back on track to enjoy everything. We're so grateful to her and her team.

Food by Natraj was incredible, took me back to the best restaurants in India and hands down the most seamless coordination with the venue. Jay Bharat is our regular go to and they never disappoint. Alexander at Amara Cafe provided incredibly delicious treats and kind service for our Venezuelan catering in conjunction with the very talented Omni Chef who wowed us with is Venezuelan dishes. Olive Wood Pizza was very easy to work with and was absolutely delicious. All of our vendors were truly amazing for our Indian Venezuelan mix from the Flamenco Dancers, Indian World Jazz Band, Indian DJ, KG Henna, local Artisan Decor, Rahul Rana Photography and Sunbeat Films. It was truly our coordinators and all our vendors who made it a success.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We met with Archana and shared our idea of incorporating my Mom's wedding Sari into a modern, light, modest yet regal Rajput inspired design. We loved that she knows how to avoid all the harsh chemicals and has a more sustainable approach to her process. All of the magic is credit to Archana. Some say I was a funny bride, I didn't understand the investment of a wedding outfit that was only to be worn once and then stowed away for eternity. I shared that thought with Archana and was amazed she completely understood and actually agreed with me. She proposed the idea of making the outfit in layers, so I could use each layer individually for years to come, and I already have :)

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Making the invitations and all the design elements together with Julio. As Visual Designers, we rarely get to create projects with 100% our vision in mind.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Julio can be known to be on the quieter side at times, but what people might not know is that he is a Gemini. I was completely caught off-guard when the "other Julio" walked onto the stage at the reception and sang in front of everyone.

Rolling Meadows, IL Indian Wedding by Dars Photography

Hello, darlings! It is time to bring Bella & Anand's wedding festivities to an end, but we are wrapping it up with a flourish by taking a look at their fantastic reception party held at The Meadows Club. The interiors of this exclusive venue hosted all the merriment and emotions surrounding this event, and all we can say is that this was a night to remember! Both our lovebirds attended this reception looking elegantly and fashionably, but it was our gorgeous Maharani who stole the show! She looked like a vision of beauty dressed in her sleek and dazzling champagne attire while rocking fabulous makeup and hairstyle, both designed by SoniSTYLED Artistry. To turn this event into a full party, Dream House Production enlivened the night with the best Bollywood hits that made everyone dance the night away! There were so much beauty and flair surrounding the scene that everyone wanted to keep a good memory of the night. Luckily, Dars Photography snapped shots from every angle to immortalize this unique and once in a lifetime event!
