Serbia, Turkey & India Indian Fusion Wedding by CineLove

Happy Monday, beauty queens! A full weekend without your company feels like an eternity, but we are so excited to be back so we can continue sharing our passion for fantastic wedding celebrations! And today's featured wedding is nothing less than spectacular. It is so unique and filled with surprises that we can firmly say that this is unlike any other wedding that we have witnessed in quite a while. For starters, Bobana & Ansh's fairytale had three different destinations: Serbia, Turkey, and India. How amazing is that! Every event of this wedding was mesmerizing as breathtaking, and we find ourselves lost of words to describe the jaw-dropping attires and the swoon-worthy set-ups conceptualized and styled by none other than Meha Bhargava of Styl.Inc. The celebrations started with a heavenly Christian ceremony in Belgrade Serbia, which is Bobana's hometown. And oh boy, this opening ceremony was to die for! From the captivating decor crafted by Svadbena zvona to the ravishing look of our gorgeous couple, everything was amazing! The festivities continued in Antalya, Turkey, where they had a 3-day long, Indian wedding. A colorful Haldi, a fun-loving Mehndi, and a vibrant Sangeet were just the preamble for the full-traditional Indian wedding ceremony held at the Titanic Mardan Palace. This paradisiacal venue, which combines traditional architecture and a soothing natural environment, added an extra touch of uniqueness to this event, becoming the perfect backdrop for these lovebirds to profess their love and commitment to each other. The wedding festivities concluded with an unforgettable reception held at the Mor Bagh - New Delhi, where All in Organization & Events took care of the decor, and Manish Puri enlivened every moment with upbeat melodies. Hands down, Bobana & Ansh's had the wedding of their dreams! And this could not have been possible without a highly talented and experienced team like the one Bobana & Ansh's had by their side. So big kudos to Chapter 2 Events for the on-point planning and execution, Anjie Gogna for the ravishing look created for our gorgeous Maharani and CineLove for the marvelous shots that made this feature possible! Visit today's gallery for a full revel of this wedding!

Montego Bay, Jamaica Indian Wedding by True Colors Photography

Good morning, Maharanis! We hope you are ready to end this week with a trip to the beach, because today, we are taking you to the paradisiacal landscapes of Montego Bay, Jamaica, to enjoy Chandni & Priyank's wedding bash. And believe us, this is one you don't want to miss, as it packs tons of beauty, traditional flair, and inspiring ideas! And right before we start, we want to give a big shoutout to the good friends at True Colors Photography for sharing the fantastic shots they captured during this magical wedding celebration. It is thanks to their remarkable work that we get to enjoy every moment of this special event. The wedding ceremony hosted at the Sunset Cove Beach Resort was a dream come true, and we cannot stress how much we loved it! With the sea and the sunset as the background, and with the lovely ornaments and floral arrangements put together by Tai Flora Luxe, Chandni & Priyank could not have asked for a more perfect scenario to tie the knot in the company of their family and friends. They both looked incredibly happy, relaxed, and in love, that captivated everyone's attention. Still, it was our gorgeous Maharani who stole the show as she looked ravishing dressed in a soft colored lengha that made her look like a princess from a fairytale. And we cannot forget about the sleek hairstyle and makeup that Shimmer Studios created for this occasion, and the artistic Mehndi designed by Henna by Divya, they were both spectacular! After the ceremony, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds with a fabulous reception party hosted at Blue Lagoon, and by taking a look at the pictures of this closing gala, we can tell that everyone had the time of their lives! And we are not surprised that everything turned out to be this perfect as the highly experienced and talented team from Grand Palladium Hotels and Resorts coordinated this life-changing event, down to the smallest detail. If you can't get enough of this lovely couple during their wedding festivities, don't miss today's jaw-dropping gallery. We are sure you are going to be amazed by every single shot!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I was visiting family in London England, and took a day to wonder the city. I got lost at the train station trying to find my platform, bumped into Priyank(groom) asked him for directions. He walked me to the platform and asked me for my number. I denied it and gave him my Instagram. He slid into my DM’s and we began chatting. He flew to Toronto to see me about 3 months later to see if this would work, about the 4th day into his visit I just knew this was it.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We took a trip to italy. We spent 10 days wandering different parts. He waiting u too the last day of our trip. We were in Venice, he proposed on a gondola ride. It was magical.
 
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 knew I wanted Shimmer Studios for my makeup, as I’ve had her doll me up for my sisters wedding. No one else came to mind. Henna by Divya is an amazing henna artist and ever since I discovered her I knew when I got married she’d be the one. I almost didn’t recognize myself I looked so good . My henna was everything I dreamed of, the colour was dark, the design was everything I wanted. Both artist out did my expectations.
 
The resort i has only seen through pictures, I was a little nervous about how everything would turn out. My wedding planner from the resort  was amazing, when we got there she toured us around all the venues and asked us if we were satisfied. The decor I chose I just sent pictures of ideas but they put did themselves. Everything was exactly how I wanted and more.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I didn’t want to go tradition red and gold, when I went to Mumbai to do my shopping i saw it in the 2nd store I went into and just knew that it was the one.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Most enjoyable part was planning the reception and the dances.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The vibe at the resort was amazing. Everyone from both sides got along well. The food was great. There was never a dull moment, everyone’s needs were catered to. One thing we did that everyone appreciated was incorporate Everyone into all of the events so everyone had a part in the wedding.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The reception would be my most memorable moment, after the reception everyone jumped off the balcony into the pool.
 
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.
The Decor at the reception was Gorgeous! I knew from the pictures that it would be nice but seeing it in person even I was in awe of it. The dances at the reception were amazing. The entire wedding party did a surprise dance for myself and the groom, I watch that video almost everyday. My sister and brother in-law did a story line dance that outlined our entire relationship and it was amazing.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t set expectations. It’ll set you up for disappointment. Plan everything with a cool and calm mind, and trust your instincts. Enjoy EVERY moment because it goes by so quickly.
 
That is all for today, darlings! Have a great weekend full of love and inspiring ideas, and don't forget to join us on Monday for more!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Dipen while we were both volunteering at a religious summer camp for kids. We met totally by chance when he came to show me how to use some A/V equipment. We didn't pay each other much mind but at the end of the camp, we connected on Instagram. After a couple of weeks of silently following each other, we exchanged numbers and we started texting/ talking. Within a few months, we found out we had a vast amount of common interests, values, and understanding. It was difficult to hold a long-distance relationship while we were both so busy with school and work but there was something about each other that we just couldn't let the relationship go. It was especially scary introducing our families to each other because we felt like though we had been "together" for a while we had only met in person a handful of times (due to the distance). Once Dipen moved to NYC for an 8 month internship we were actually able to meet more often, falling in love while we discovered the art and architecture of Manhattan.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had been talking about it for a few months and he actually was able to completely surprise me. We had gone ring shopping in NYC a few times and I basically asked him to design the perfect ring for me because I couldn't make up my mind. Being an architect he had access to CAD software where he could design the ring exactly as he imagined. He made up a story about how his internship was ending early and he really wanted engagement pictures in NYC but the ring wouldn't be ready because it was too hard to use the software or the jeweler wasn't negotiating the price for him. We found a photographer and set up a date for our "not" engagement pictures- the weather wasn't cooperating so we actually postponed it to the next morning (little did I know what a headache that was for him!) That night we spent hours going over outfits and looks and matching our clothes over and over again. Groggy eyed we made it to our early morning photoshoot at the Brooklyn Bridge Park where our photographer, Konrad Brattke, met us. We casually took some pictures around the streets and famous carousel. Eventually, we walked up to the beach where there was a trail of rose petals leading to a heart. Dipen grabbed my hand and led me to the center where I immediately started crying as he got down on one knee and presented me the ring. After the proposal, he showed me the details he put in the ring that made it uniquely mine and a video he prepared of all of my family and friends wishing me congratulations! It was so thoughtful and such a surprise to see all of the planning and detail he put in to make it a perfect proposal

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 started wedding planning in earnest in September of 2017 by looking at venues in both of our home cities and by creating a preliminary guest list... the guest list did half of the work for us because we knew that the venue needed to accommodate a huge party. We also needed a place which allowed outside licensed caterers because of our religions strict dietary restrictions.  We narrowed it down to 2 great venues in each city (Minneapolis, MN and Kansas City, MO) and ultimately the dates for his home city worked the best so we began working with the Overland Park Convention center for our wedding weekend. OPCC was very accommodating with all of our traditions and requests. We held our Mehndi night and Manglik Prasango Vidhis at the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in Shawnee, KS for a more intimate environment and our Sangeet night, Wedding Ceremony and Reception at OPCC.

All decor was provided by Remmal at Occasions by Shangri-La. Dipen was pretty deadset on using this decor company in particular since he had seen first hand their work when OBS outfitted another wedding at OPCC. We did not have to work too hard to explain our vision to Remmal: we shareed some inspiriation images with him and important style elements we wanted and he pulled together beautiful and encompassing decor themes throughout the weekend along with his team. We had one in person meeting to quell our nerves but we were so happy and satisfied with the level of service at OBS.

My hair and Makeup artsist was Glam by Richa. Honestly with the amount of effort Dipen and I were putting into designing the event, a HMUA kind of fell through the cracks for me. It was february and I hadn't chosen anyone so I began desperately going to makeup trials. Frustrated that the first couple didn't work out, I saw Richa's work on a mutual friend's haldi look and I reached out. I booked her and hoped for the best since I ran out of time to go out for another trial. I'm so glad that she was there for all of my events though- it was a completely stressfree part of the wedding weekend to sit before her and just let her be creative with the look she created for each event. I am honestly not the best at doing my own makeup so I had no qualms about leaving it up to a professional but she really nailed it out of the park!

Our videographer was Michael J. Scott Productions from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We fell in love with their cinematic style and loved the detailed shots they captured which otherwise would have been forgotten or unnoticed. They were very fun to work with and we wished we could have done an epic engagement shoot with them too!

Our Photographer was Strokes Photography from Toronto, Canada. We met through a mutual friend whose wedding Jonita was shooting. I loved the airy, crisp style of the photos and when I saw that the pricing packages were named after famous impressionist artists I was sold. We invited Jonita last minute to Utah to take engagement pictures with us (and our wild family) and we were so impressed with what she captured in the few days we were there. The landscape and her eye for details made for beautiful captured memories.

Our DJ was Jay Rana of Raaz entertainment from Hoboken, NJ. I knew of Raaz Ent. from my brother's wedding where MC Carlos killed it. We basically knew that we wanted that level of fun and entertainment at our wedding too but he was also very professional and knowledgeable. Working in the industry for so long, Jay was able to share many of his tips and tricks for planning and even executing an event.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted a Magenta Pink bridal lengha because I felt like that color suits me well and I love bold and bright colors. I wanted something traditional but also very contemporary. One of the greatest Indian designers Sabyasachi inspired my whole look for the ceremony and I couldn't be happier with the timeless look

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was spending time with my (then future) husband to plan out each and every detail of everything. We were so excited to share a piece of our lives and personalities with our guests that we planned everything to a T. We would hold our own conference calls and family meetings to plan and share each other's opinions about everything. We wanted to include our own brand on everything which meant that we designed everything.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our hard work in planning paid off in that the guests loved that there was no confusion and great flow. Each guest was given a weekend program with times and address of when and where to arrive for each event, we designed signage to display that they were in the right spot, we created an entire website where guests could RSVP, read about the events and amenities of the city, etc. Each guest felt a taste of southern hospitality and they felt taken care of.

Guests also loved the newspaper program we designed. We all know that Hindu ceremonies are long and sometimes boring so we created an 8-page wedding program designed like a newspaper with articles and pictures on the steps of planning from cake tasting to the bridal shower to intimate family ceremonies like the Chandlo matli and kankotri writing ceremony. We even included some comics and word games. This program not only explained the wedding but also gave the guests something to do and talk about.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment of the day took place before the ceremony at the first look- we were rushing to get to the museum before the sun fully rises and I was so nervous about Dipen seeing me in my outfit. I remember at first walking fast to tap him on the shoulder but then I slowed down as I got closer and more anxious. The photo/ video teams had me stop and wait for the perfect moment. It was both overwhelming and underwhelming to see him turn around- overwhelming because his eyes saw me as his bride and new wife but underwhelming because we knew that marriage was not going to change our feelings or actions towards each other.

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 hand-drawn and watercolor vision for our wedding invitations which we tried to convey to a company but after a few weeks of the project going nowhere, we decided to take it into our own hands. I meticulously hand drew and painted each card face while Dipen imported the scans onto his computer where he drafted each card. We were able to comb through each aspect of the card from the coloring to the spellings in order to get everything perfect.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't get so overwhelmed with the planning that you forget to enjoy it! Honestly sometimes I miss the late nights with my husband trying to decide on a decor theme or dreaming up a menu because we got to be so creative and imaginative about what could be done. If we had both succumbed to our busy lives we may have just ended up with another traditional wedding but adding in little details like hand drawn wedding invitations or thoughtful arrival notes really created a wonderful impression in our guests' eyes. We are so happy and proud when our friends and relatives tell us how much they enjoyed our wedding weekend because we both tried our best to make it a great experience for them

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndi was done by Samira's henna designs and it was honestly so soothing to have her create beautiful designs with the fragrant henna paste. She really took her time to draw gorgeous figures and without much guidance, she created such beautiful art. I really enjoyed the henna designs and her company.

We are just getting started over here, so make sure to stick around if you don't want to miss any detail!
