Long Beach, CA Ismaili Wedding by Global Photography

Welcome to the second chapter of Nikhita and Amar’s wedding! Right after a lovely first look, the bride and groom had a few moments of quietness together and then headed to Santa Monica Jamatkhana for their Nikkah ceremony, classically transported by G&A Limousine Service. I absolutely adore Nikhita’s extraordinaire lace white saree, while most brides purchase their own outfit, our smart bride designed her own wedding dress and looked stunning next to Amar who opted for an elegant tailored plaid suit. The result of both looks combined, as you will see in each of Global Photography’s creative images, is just amazing!  After the Nikkah ceremony, the bride and groom were surrounded by their closest ones and sat in front of each other to find the coin in a large bowl of brightly colored rice and rose petals! Sit back and dive into the magic images of this gorgeous Ismaili affair in our full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Amar and I met at a summer camp known as Camp Mosaic. According to Amar, he fell in love with me when we sat down during a moment at camp exchanging jokes and laughing up a storm. For me, I fell in love with Amar during our 10 hour Facetime dates when we could talk about anything and everything and not get tired or bored with each other. That's when I realized this is the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with. 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Amar proposed to me at Laguna Beach, where we had our first date. He had been planning the proposal for 6 months and I had no clue. I was at work early in the morning and got let out early because he called my boss to release me. Once I got home I got ready and my sisters, my best friend and I all got in a limo Amar had rented for the day for us. We were about 3 hours late to the proposal due to LA traffic, and once I got there he had a video set up for me to watch from all our friends with the sweetest messages ever. When he finally came out, he was wearing my dads favorite tie and he said, "your dad gave me his tie as his blessing and will only let me keep it if you say yes" That one line stole my heart and I couldn't be more excited to marry such an amazing and caring man. The best part was when my mom showed up because I had no idea she was there and the rooftop where we had our first date was filled with all our close friends and family cheering! 
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.
Hair and make up for my nikkah ceremony and reception was done by the amazing dreavmakeup. My reception themes were all different shades of purple and white! 
Hair and makeup for my sangeet was done by Nida Gazi, my theme for the sangeet was Indian street themed with umbrellas as centerpieces, a decked out bike as a backdrop for pictures and a bangles cart and Indian street food to top it off. 
My sangeet outfit was designed by me and made by Elan Atlanta courtesy of Salima Budhani.
My reception and Nikkah outfit was a custom outfit designed by me and came to life thanks to the owner of Yasmin Boutique, Kausar Aunty. 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew the colors I wanted for my reception since I was about 20 years old. Plum has always been a favorite color of mine so I decided to go along with that. It's a color not commonly seen worn at wedding receptions and I also wanted lavender to be incorporated somewhere in my decor and plum just matched it perfectly. I also loved the combination of peach and navy blue and Amar is a big fan of navy blue (chargers fan and all) so that is why we selected those colors for our sangeet. 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the most enjoyable part was spending time with Amar and going venue shopping all across southern California. We would have the best time at these meetings just laughing and imagining what our big day would be like. 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
If I had to pick one thing the guests enjoyed it would definitely be the food. I think we went above and beyond to make sure our food was amazing since Amar and I are both foodies! 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think the most special moment for me personally during the wedding was right before our Nikkah ceremony. I was getting ready and taking a few bridal pictures alone before I had to meet Amar. One of his best men came to me with a cute little Tiffany's box in hand. Amar has known that since we met I always wanted to own a piece of jewelry from Tiffany's and what better day to give it than right before our official wedding ceremony. Inside the Tiffany's box was a cute heart-shaped pendant with my father's initials and a note that said even though he is not physically here with you today he is always in your heart. Amar is known for his sweet little gestures and seeing that right before the big ceremony just made me realize my dad would be so happy for us! 
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.
For all our event we had decor done by BEL events. my favorite decor was for the reception with the best floral backdrop ever! we also an awesome donut wall inspired by our wedding coordinator Dana and Amar since they are both donut enthusiast and donuts catered from DK's donuts. 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My advice would be to make sure you get food at every event and to not stress during your wedding week. Don't worry about anything that goes wrong just live in the moment and enjoy the company of everyone. This moment only comes once!

Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by WalkOnWater Productions

You may want to grab a Kleenex for our final Indian wedding film, my dears. Your hearts are about to get hit with so many loving feels... There's not much in this world that is greater than the love a parent has for their child, and you'll definitely feel the ultimate adoration Maharani Shama's mother and father have for their only daughter. WalkOnWater Productions filmed and edited this sensational highlight reel at the incredible Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel, where our flawless Indian bride wed the Raja of her dreams, Chintan. From some of the most charming pre-wedding moments to the ceremony, every last second of this film is sure to make you smile. Maharani Shama has such fab style, donning a stunning red, green and cream-colored lengha sari as she got ties the knot (not to mention two other incredible looks you'll get a good glimpse at!), her hair and makeup the picture of perfection. You simply can't miss this one, my dears. It's perfect. 

Maharani Shama, on meeting the Raja of her dreams: 

"A trip to the movies with friends became a day that changed my life. We didn't know each other and he was new to the group as the 'new guy with a British accent". We connected via AOL messenger a few days later, and quickly realized he was the one. Over the years I've always looked back on that regular day with much fondness."

On Raja Chintan's romantic proposal: 

"Like the movie My Name Is Khan, I told Chintan to show me Atlanta like I've never seen before. I knew he'd make it extra special and he surprised me by proposing on top of The W Hotel helipad with the Atlanta skyline in the backdrop over a clear blue sky just before sunset. Friends were on hand to capture the moment when he proposed on a bed of rose petals with the perfect ring."

On her wedding style:

"Chintan and I love the traditional look so we wanted a classic wooden mandap with a traditional color palette. Because of my love of peacocks, we wanted a subtle peacock theme. This inspired the peacock accents for every event, from Mehndi night to the Wedding. One of my favorite peacock accents were the signs we made on peacock feather fans for my bridesmaids to carry down the aisle stating: Wait Until You See Her."

On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:

"I enjoyed the process of selecting our vendors and theme. All of our vendors are so kind and supportive that working with them was a delight. On another note, I loved shopping for Chintan and my outfits!"

On picking out her wedding lenghas:

"I spent many hours on Pinterest searching for inspiration for my Garba outfit since we did not have a Reception. My search was focused on peacock colors like blues and purples. I worked with Virtues, a designer in Ahmdebad, India for my Garba outfit. As for my wedding outfit, I've wanted to wear a traditional panetar sari for as long as I can remember. Luckily I found the sari I had been dreaming about for years and worked with designer Purva Couture for the perfect veil."

On her most memorable wedding moment:

"Although we had our First Look during our photo session prior to the wedding ceremony, the moment we saw each other in the mandap was most magical. After all these years, Chintan and I were finally becoming husband and wife!

On a laughable note, I think the funniest part of the wedding was when I ran to sit down in the chair first without realizing I was dragging Chintan behind me."

On her hair and makeup:

"Once again, Pinterest was my best friend during the planning process. I spent many hours trying to find examples of the styles I had in my mind. After picking a few examples, my makeup artist and hair stylist successfully conjured up what I had imagined. I've always been told I had an old Bollywood look so I was searching for hair designs in that style."

On the role family and friends played:

"This wedding would not have been a success without our family and friends. I was trying to plan this wedding in Atlanta while living in Chicago and without a wedding planner. After I selected and booked our vendors, Mom and Dad finalized the venue and menus for all of the events as well as creating teams to make sure every aspect of the wedding flowed smoothly. Mom's team cooked Indian snacks for three months prior to the wedding week for all of our guests and prepared welcome bags for every hotel room as well as small favors for the events. Mom amazingly pre-pleated, pinned and steamed all of my bridesmaids, aunts, and my sarees so we could get dressed effortlessly! Dad's team organized the distribution of favors and event set up. My parents really made this wedding possible!"

Ontario, Canada Sikh Wedding by Cineverse

Greetings, Maharanis! It's a fabulous Filmy Friday and I have three of the most memorable wedding flicks to show you today. Heading things up is this spectacular highlight reel, shot and edited by the incredibly talented team at Cineverse. It features some of the most extraordinary moments from Maharani Deep and Raja Happy's Sikh wedding in Ontario, Canada. The Mississauga Convention Centre hosts this splendid event, and you'll get a peek into all of the day's delightful moments. The film opens up with a look at Sonia's Henna Art creating the bride's breathtaking mehndi design, some fashion details and LeSonne Bridals working their hair and makeup magic — the gorgeous side braid and bold, red lips are simply fantastic! This Sikh bride is an absolute sensation in an intricately detailed, sky blue and red bridal lengha, her stunning crystal and pearl necklace the icing on the cake. Not to upstage her own ceremony look, but still leave a lasting impression, Maharani Deep turned to Shyamal & Bhumika for her dazzling cobalt blue reception lengha, and to make sure her event was just as unforgettable as her bridal fashions, the bride enlisted Xclusive Designs to take charge of her 20's-themed floral and decor — and boy did they deliver! With an energetic performance by Mickey Singh, who was surrounded by partygoers on the dance floor, and heart-pumping beats dropped by Empire Entertainment, the night was one affair no one would soon forget. Maybe Banga Studios will delight us with some of the amazing pics they took, but until then click play and enjoy!

The bride, on how she met the Raja of her dreams:

"I met Happy through mutual friends at a friends condo party. For the first six months we were just friends because I wanted to get to know him. As the months went by I realized he is the most amazing man I had ever known. It was then I started to realize he was “the one”."

On the super romantic proposal:

"We went to one of my favorite places, New York, for the second time. Only this time I had no idea he was going to propose to me. It was a bright and sunny day on May 25th, as we shopped on 5th Ave. I was taking a bit too long in the Henri Bendel store and Happy was getting impatient because he had plans of his own to propose and I was inadvertently delaying them. He was doing anything and everything to speed the decision process along. Finally we left, we freshened up and got ready for the evening. We walked through central park and ended up at The Loeb Boathouse Central Park. We were only 5 minutes late which is pretty good in my books. I thought dress code was formal and I quickly realized I was overdressed. As we waited for our seats, I switched from heels to flats and took off my earrings, while Happy was giving me the you look fine look. After we had been seated and we ordered, I looked around and it was breathtaking. The restaurant was off a lake and there were gondola rides taking place, music playing and so much more. We got our food so quickly compared to other guests and Happy's hand was shaking which was a bit odd to me. After dinner, we had the rest of our wine on the gondola ride as the sun was setting. After the proposal I found out that Happy asked the restaurant manager if we could be alone on the lake. His request was approved given the situation. The gondolier provided stories regarding the lake and how it had been used in movies such as Home Alone and Sex and the City! Then Happy handed his phone over to the gondolier to take our photo and I was getting ready to strike a pose only to find Happy bent down on one knee. He turned my body into his direction and proposed. I was shocked and excited all at the same time. Of course, I said yes! Later that night we went to Times Square and took a few pictures and called it a night. One of the happiest days of our lives!"

On her wedding style:

"When we started to think about themes for our wedding we were immediately drawn to the Great Gatsby theme from decor to outfits to music. As the year went on we realized it was a popular theme and wanted to do something that had never been done. Even though we took out the Gatsby theme, it was still our overall inspiration. We continued with 20's vintage, royal theme. Our original colors were gold, ivory, white, and navy blue. What we ended up with was the same colors only we added blush pink. We had crystals, pearls, and flowers as accents throughout. We loved our decor!"

On selecting her dream reception lengha:

"Too many countless hours were spent on the internet trying to find the perfect reception outfit. Finally I gazed upon a designer by the name of Shyamal & Bhumika. They had amazing pieces and one stood out to me the most. It was the cobalt blue embroidered gown. It left me breathless to say the least and when I saw it I knew it was “the one”. I ordered it directly from the designer in Mumbai. They were so professional to work with and I couldn't have been happier. Everyone loved it as much as I did."

Sit tight, Maharanis! There's still most Filmy fabulousness on the way!
