How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through friends. His roommate was my best friends boyfriend (now husband). All 4 of us went out one evening, and both (my husbands and mine) phones were stolen and that’s where our adventure began. We clicked instantly, but kept it pretty casual between us. What started as getting to know one another and becoming friends turned into the most beautiful companionship I could have ever imagined. My life is truly a roller coaster ride, and he’s been through everything with me. A little over a year after we met, something big had happened in my life, and not for the better... I remember calling him and telling him and he dropped everything he was doing to help me get through it. He focused hours and days on end with me, without him I would not have been where I am today. That’s when I knew— I knew he was the one and I wanted to put everything towards making us work.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I’ll let you see it all! It was all a surprise... we had spoken about getting married, involved our parents, but I never thought he would propose to me because it’s not his style. He blew me away with this.. he completely surprised me, and he actually got on one knee which i never thought would happen!

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.
Research research research! I planned the whole wedding in 4 months!

Outfit- my sister helped me. We knew I wanted a fusion outfit, something white and silver to look Arab like but also the desi touch. Republic woman’s wear was an easy yet perfect choice.

Venue: when you know your capacity will be at least 500, you easily narrow venues down! Also, do they allow outside catering ? If it was a no then those venues were out! I spoke to many venues, got lots of quotes and ultimately it was a no brained to go with grand Hyatt Atlanta! It’s absolutely gorgeous, the service was spectacular and the price was unbeatable!

Hair- I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted to go with sm hair couture. Never did a trial just went by her pictures.

Makeup: this was a tough one. I didn’t want to pay so much for trails so after narrowing it down to the top 3, I paid for one trial, fell in love and just finalized with Erica Bogart!

Decor/theme: I wanted it to be a fusion wedding! Arab + Pakistani! So I did everything to incorporate both cultures! 2 djs (Arab and desi) A dabke team, and two caterers (Arab and desi)!! Dancing was also very very important to me! We had a traditional dabke team bring us in — it was extremely grand—- we had our first dance in my 25 pound dress without tripping on my train— and we had nonstop 45 mins of choreography dances — truly an amazing outcome!

I did all the planning, however I do not recommend that again! On the day of it was very stressful for me and I should Have had someone help on the day of!

Dj- I had hired two different djs desi and arab.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had the perfect dress! I couldn’t have asked for anything more, I felt like a royal queen.

I wanted it to be fusion— a white dress with a Pakistani touch. My dress had a long train, it was silver and white, we customized it to clip up while I danced because I did not want to change midway through the wedding. My words can’t do justice to what the dress turned out to look like! You have to see it!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The dances!!! I loved the practices, I loved practicing myself! I loved having all my friends, sisters and cousins over to practice! It was absolutely amazing!

The engagement photos was also very fun

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everything!! They can’t stop talking about it! They thought it was the wedding of the century! It felt like a royal wedding to them! From the entrance to the dances they loved it all!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The entrance! That was spectacular! our first dance!

And most of all my dad! My dad was so ecstatic that he could not stop dancing! And he was dancing with me so much, twirling me around .. it was insane!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Take a deep breath! I knew the day of things would not go perfect, and I was prepared for that. 20 minutes before the guest walked in the top 2 tiers of the cake fell. My sister called all scared and I said, don’t worry, it is what it is. Just go along with what’s there and we can make it work.

Our 45 minute dance medley was being put together by me while I was getting my hair done!

This will be happening the day of, things will not go as planned or things will be hectic, but the moment I saw my husband and took his hand that was it — it was him and I for the rest of our lives and that’s all that mattered— all my worries were left behind and it turned out even better than I could have imagined. I was thinking everything was going to be downhill from there — but no, it was a wedding beyond anything I’ve ever seen or been involved in.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I planned the wedding in less than 4 months. Final Guest count on the day of was between ~550-600.

Honestly my wedding was amazing, beautiful, elegant . My wedding was a shendi: mehndhi + Shaadi

It was a fun filled event and I could not have asked for anything more! You have to check out the full video! It’s on my Facebook under videos! You’ll see all the amazing dances there— we incorporated Arab songs and desi songs! It was a lot of fun!

Come back tomorrow for more. We have prepared a new fantastic love story just for you!

Woodbridge, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by 1314 Studio

Welcome back, beautiful Maharanis! This week is full of many festivities, and here at Maharani Weddings, we want to start it by bringing you a new love story that will make you sigh! To begin this journey, we are taking you to the exclusive Ariana's Grand, the ideal venue chosen by Javeria & Mohsin, our today's lovebirds, to tie the knot! And we must say that the way everything was set up, organized, and orchestrated left us speechless, and we are sure that you will be inspired by the talented team from Events By Srishti, who captured our lovely duo's vision and created the wedding of their dreams. Just beautiful! Speaking of beauty, Javeria, our gorgeous Maharani, dazzled everyone with a royalty look throughout the entire gala. No wonder why Raja Mohsin couldn't take his eyes off of her. It is incredible to see how two different cultures mingle together to celebrate the eternal union of their favorites. Once the ceremony ended, an unforgettable wedding reception hosted at the 5 star banquets started.  And we loved how everyone had a blast chatting, enjoying the delicious food, the emotional speeches, and of course, the phenomenal beats from Luxe Event Group and DJ Salman NYC. They turn this gala into a real party. To conclude this installment, let me invite you to relive this epic celebration by visiting today's gallery, thanks to the fantastic photo captures taken by 1314 Studio. I bet you will love them as much as we did. So enjoy it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He's been my best friend since we were in high school. Always knew he was the one!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My husband drove all the way from Brooklyn to NJ with my sister in law and his 3 nieces to a park near me and set up a balloon arch that said Marry me with rose petals all over the floor. My siblings blind folded me and then he took me to the spot he set up and got down on one knee. I knew the whole time what was going to happen, but it was still really special.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I know I wanted a traditional red lengha. I went to the bridal market in Pakistan with my parents with only 8 days to shop for my entire wedding due to work/vacation time and we spent all day looking to find the perfect lengha. My parents saw it and loved it first and at first I wasn't so sure until they put it up against me and put the dupatta on my head as I looked in the mirror.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The little details like the making the diya plates was such a fun activity to do with my sister. We got to be creative and it was one of the things I really looked forward to doing because I could take my vision and bring it to life.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My father daughter dance was the most special and emotional moment of the whole wedding. We danced to "Half the Man" by Jennifer Smestad and we cry everytime we hear the song or watch the video.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
You can't control everything & if you can get a planner or day of coordinator. They handled everything the day of and saved me so much stress. A lot of changes were made and a lot of things could have went wrong, did go wrong because of covid but I didn't focus on any of it nor did I need to because I was too busy enjoying my special day all thanks to the special people behind the scenes!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
This was the first wedding in my family so there were ofcourse a lot of firsts. We got lucky in many ways with the amazing people we booked, but we booked some non so great vendors/venues as well. Firstly, I booked eventsbtsrishti as my day of coordinator and there's no words that could describe my gratitude to her and her team on making my dad as amazing as it was. They're a forever vendor for me and my family and I can't reccomend them enough. 1314 studio was my photographer/videographer and they're worth every penny, their work is amazing! Lake chateau was by far the best venue we booked, they were so accommodating & the venue was beautiful. Pinhos bakery has been a family favorite bakery, they made my sweet16 cake & now my wedding cake. BeautyByTamanna was my hair and makeup artist and her work speaks for itself, she's kind, respectful and SO talented. Food was catered from Sunshine restaurant and we got many compliments! DJ salman and Amplifire Entertainment were our Djs and they did a great job keeping the flow of the day going and keeping people on their feet during open dancefloor.

If you loved this one, I bet you will adore what we have prepared for tomorrow. So come back!
