San Diego, CA Sikh Wedding by Anza Foto + Film

Hello, Maharanis! This time around, we are joining Arshey & Richie on the imposing and exclusive San Diego Marriott Mission Valley to attend their magnificent wedding reception. The entire craftsmanship of this reception carried out by Sacheen's Décor was simply mesmerizing! The beautiful floral arrangements in baby tones, perfectly combined with the pink and lavender ornaments, created a romantic and elegant atmosphere that could only be overtaken by our gorgeous couple. Arshey & Richie looked breathtaking and we are loving every inch of the attires chosen by Om by Bharti & Aashna Couture for this reception. Arshey looked astonishing on her champagne dress with diamond details, and this elegant and alluring look was enlightened by the delicate hairstyle that Hair by Bushra picked for this gala. And Richie did not stay behind, as he wore a fancy and distinguished slate attire with colored accent accessories that perfectly matched with the color palette that Arshey was wearing. Totally embracing the concept of style and elegance that marked this entire wedding! Our lovely couple had the first dance as husband and wife and enjoyed every bit of this magnificent reception that was enlivened by the vibrant and talented DJ Sandeep Kumar. All of the guests were having the time of their lives, but the peak moment of the evening was reached when our lovebirds had the first cut at the cake, a moment that got captured thanks to the fascinating talent of Anza Foto + Film. If you want to take a deeper look at this magnificent ceremony, don't miss the gallery that we have prepared for today and get that imagination going!

Montespertoli, Italy Indian Wedding by D2 Photography

The evocative images by D2 Photography will transport you to the captivating Italian sunset that served as the golden backdrop for Devaki and Krishan's reception photo sesh! After these magical moments, our newlywedded couple took their guests outside for an intimate gathering in the patio of the Antica Fattoria di Paterno. The celebration displayed a Tuscan-style wedding reception, the romantic and breathtaking scenery prepared by Floralia Italy was ethereal yet elegant with wreaths of potted plants and neutral colors. I love the breathtaking long reception tables that gave a more inviting feel! This time Aneesh Agarwaal dressed our beautiful bride with an evening design and Silvia Gerzeli gave her a natural yet romantic look with a loose hairstyle and an impeccable makeup while her Raja Krishan went for a white tux jacket that gave him a sophisticated flair! DJ Matthew brought the excitement to the celebration with a fabulous selection of music and Maharaja put the final traditional touch to the event with a fabulous dinner! Check out the beautiful photos below and in the full gallery!

Huntington Beach, CA Indian Wedding by Samson Productions

It’s finally time to take a sneak peek of the grand wedding bash of Paayal and Jimmy! The new Mr. and Mrs. offered an extraordinary reception planned by Ethnic Essence Couture Events at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach! The memorable event was a display of grandeur and glamour thanks to the amazing large floral table centerpieces and romantic sophisticated shades combination that Ethnic Essence Couture Events designed for each table and wedding stage, I especially love the crystal pendants hanging with ribbons from the ceiling! The lovely newlyweds danced the night away with their guests in a costumed designed dance floor to the rhythm of 3D Sounds while Manohar's Delhi Palace served a traditional and savory banquet! Maharani Paayal was an absolute princess in her mint color gown and the Raja of her dreams wore a lovely tie that matched the bride’s color look!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We actually met online; a month after talking online we had our first date in Dallas. We had so many similarities it was hard to stop talking, it was like seeing a guy version of myself!  We actually are from the same neighborhood back home and were in the same religious services every night (without knowing each other of course) Our parents were also familiar with each other. We both thought the other one was lying to get points because when we would talk about our childhood, it was always a "oh my god me too!" that followed. I knew he was the one since he would call and check up on me on days which he knew were hard. He also would ask about my parents and their wellbeing and that was the icing on top!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Well after we both told our parents; we had an official engagement ceremony in April 2017 but he did not want to present the ring then (since he wanted to propose). Both of us being from very traditional families; he proposed after we knew we were getting married. It wasn't the same kind of surprise you get with most proposals but it was magical nonetheless. While prepping for the wedding, one of those nights in early October, he popped the question during a romantic dinner. 
 
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 had less than 5 months to plan a 4-day event for 400 people. Planning was done by the both of us and my very handy Pinterest board. We decided on the venues together, he actually drove me to Houston to order my reception outfit! I knew exactly the kind and colors I wanted to go for in terms of outfits since high school (Yes, I was one of those brides). As far as decor, I had saved plenty of ideas and I knew I wanted to go through Weddings by Faiza since she had done a phenomenal job during our engagement. Even after getting several referrals and calls from decorators themselves; I knew from the beginning that I wasn't even going to chance anyone else. She listened to my ideas and brought them to life + more! Everyone was in awe every single day and I'm so so glad to say that she has now become a good friend and a future planner/decorator for any upcoming events.  
As far as hair and makeup- being completely clueless when it came to pro makeup- I went through my instagram and immediately fell in love with Sarah Aasif. I went to her for a trial and knew she was the one before she even picked up the brush! Seher, who also works alongside Sarah was also the best! Both of them literally turned my looks into something beyond my imagination! For my reception hair and makeup, I had JTorry who brought my whole "royal theme" into my hair and makeup! I couldn't have asked for a better team! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I've always knew I wanted maroon and gold for my reception outfit. When I visited Panache By Sharpen; I fell in love with one of the lehenga she had. This was after failing to find what I wanted in countless stores. I custom designed my top and she had it made exactly how I wanted it. 
I mix-matched my pithi outfit with two outfits and my sangeet outfit was custom made with my design. One thing I did always say was that I would never be caught wearing pink and I actually ended up falling in love with a pink top (which I used during my pithi). My Nikah sari was custom made by Rozy Poonja of Organza/Rohp Indian Bridal. Rozy was like the fairy god mother who magically had my sari made in such a small time frame! My Nikah sari was very heavily embroidered with very intricate lace work and Rozy made it happen all within 4 weeks which was faster than any of my other outfits. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part for me was when Malik would come in town and we would go see Faiza for our decor. Those appointments would last hours because of all the thoughts/ideas I would have. Faiza always took time out to listen to my concerns, even if they were silly. I think my meetings with Faiza were the only "stress free" part of the wedding planning on my end! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Almost everyone we talked to was in love with our decor, food and the theme. Which of course made all of those stressful moments worth it. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance, and how I was mumbling to Malik that the fog machine wasn't on at some points, haha. But then he always brought me back to the moment and I am so so glad that we both enjoyed our wedding! We danced, ate and danced more which is exactly what I wanted to do. 
 
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.
Malik's family had a surprise dance during the sangeet in which I also took part in. I danced to two songs from the 90's which I knew Malik loved and went perfectly with our relationship. 
Our sangeet theme was "Pakistan." Since we both grew up going to weddings in Pakistan, we wanted our guests to feel as if they were in Pakistan. Our decor for that night consisted of canopy tents, string lights, umbrellas, a swing set and food carts with the following menu: Chaat, Karachi Haleem, Boti rolls, Bun Kababs and of course to top it all we had Karachi style Gola (snow cone) and Kulfi. The food was done by Chilli Pepper Caterings, dessert by Agha Juice and Food carts were of course provided and decorated by Faiza (Decorator). 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Express your ideas and concerns! Do you! Enjoy your wedding, don't be stuck sitting on the stage the whole time! Take plenty of bride/groom portraits! 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehendi was done by Kiran Meghani of KMhennaartistry. She was such a sweetheart and knew exactly what my style was since she also did my engagement mehendi. Our cake was done by Delicious Cakes in Addison and our cake serving sets were custom ordered from Ukraine to match our decor. I definitely wanted something different for my bouquet and Sadia Shah took my idea of a hanging bouquet and brought it to life! 

You are going to absolutely love the reception images coming up next!

Cancun, Mexico Indian Wedding by Jonathan Cossu Photographer

Can you just feel it? That toes in the sand feeling where everything just feels right. I truly left my heart in Mexico amongst the sandy beaches and the soft winds. The grand finale celebrating Maharani Jeenal and Neil has come to an end and sadly I must leave my emotions here because I am so in love with this Indian wedding! From the lens of Jonathan Cossu Photographer, I have the grand finale of an event waiting to grace your screens. Royalton Riviera Cancun doubled down on the duties and ensured their very own spacious quarters was sophisticated in wedding color and design. The dance floor was out of this world! These are definitely not classic Indian wedding colors! Bright hues juxtaposed with black are a complete 180-degree turn from what guests are accustomed to! I love out of the box ideas because that is what makes your celebration unique! Jeenal's slate grey anarkali added that perfect amount of pop in the room. Head to the sun-kissed gallery for more of this incredible celebration.
