How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My best friend has been telling me about this great guy she worked with and been wanting to introduce me too. Finally, I met Rishi at my best friend’s birthday bash in NYC. During the entire party, he did not leave my side, so I could tell he was smitten with me. After the party ended, I returned home to Long Island, and we lost touch with one another.Our paths didn’t cross again until one year later when I gathered enough courage to call him and ask him to attend a party with me in the city. He agreed. I am a shy person, but that night, we ended up talking for hours. Rishi was persistent in prying me out of my shell in an attempt to get to know me. I was intrigued by him when he told me he was taking tango lessons and wanted a travel companion. I love dancing and traveling! It was at that moment that I knew I wanted to get to know Rishi more.Initially, I wasn’t sure that we were a perfect match because we are complete opposites. I am introverted and reserved, while Rishi is the life the party. But over time, I began to see just how amazing Rishi’s is, and I cherished our conversations and time together.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
⁸I decided to tag along with Rishi on his medical conference to New Orleans. We are big foodies so I was so excited to. After all week, being in the conferences, he told me to get dressed up that Friday so that we can go out to a nice dinner. I was really excited because I love getting dressed up. When his conference ended I had his and my outfit ready so we can just leave right when he got home. He didn’t tell me where we were going because it was a surprise.We were walking by the water and he asked a stranger to take a picture for us and all of the sudden he went down on one knee. I was so excited I couldn’t speak or believed it just happen. I felt like I was in a dream. In the background, there was a photographer taking pictures of the entire proposal as well.Not only did the photographer take our pictures during the proposal. We went all over New Orleans taking pictures. My favorite part was when Rishi had the street Jazz band play “I can’t give you anything but love” for us to dance to. What to the night off was that evening there were beautiful fireworks. I felt like his proposal was planned just perfect from where he decided to propose, surprise proposal, the hired band, and dance, delicious food and fireworks to end the night.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We had 9 events (shagun, haldi, Filipino welcome party, American Ceremony, mehndi, sangeet, Indian ceremony, cocktail hour , reception)not including 3 after parties in 3 day so I had 14 outfit changes. 

For shagun  I wore a classic red shawara 
Haldi I-a colorful yellow lehenga 
Welcome party (island theme) a Filipino dress known as a filipiniana 

American ceremony I wore a sweetheart chiffon ballgown

Mehndi (Bollywood themed)I wore a tasseled gold saree

Sangeet (beach themed) I wore a mermaid cut aqua gold lehenga resembling a mermaid.   My husband had a custom matching kurta made.

Indian ceremony: I wore a custom made pink lehenga to resemble a barbie doll and my husband had a matching custom kurta made

Cocktail hour ( Gatsby themed)I wore a feathered wedding gown. My husband wore a tail coat suit . 

Reception: ( Hollywood glamour themed) White gold dress with crystals all over. My husband had a custom made maroon velvet tux .  Our first dance(tango) he switched to a sparkle black Versace tux and I had a sexy red dress and switch into a White marchese halter dress similar to Megan Markle's reception dress.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
That every event had a different theme and it just got better towards the end.


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 kicked off our wedding with a vow renwal ceremony  for my parents 48th anniversary.  Great example of how we want our future marriage to be.  Because of you both, the world knows that truth and love exist. Keep these beliefs alive and cherish one another.You are the parents that all kids hope to have, you are the couple that all lovers hope to be and you both are the pillars of support that every family wishes it had. 

Filipino Welcome party Filipinos pride themselves in their Matatag spirit, respect for community, our unyielding loyalty, generosity and of course our hospitality.  Filipino hospitality is reflected in the way we welcome relatives, friends and strangers alike.  It is standard practice to shower guests with food, music, drink and last but not least dancing....plenty of dancing.  So to stay true to my Filipino roots, we decided to have a true Mabuhay celebration.  The phrase carries various meanings including "long live", "may you live", "cheers", "welcome", and "hurrah". This was our way of welcoming our guests in the most extraordinary way possible!!! Mabuhay!!
The Mehndi Ceremony is a fun and exciting pre-wedding ritual, where we had 2 Henna artist apply henna on a me and my guests  thus marking the kick off, of the wedding celebrations.
We hosted our Mehndi event on the beach. During the mehndi ceremony my bridesmaids, my husband and I had  a suprise performance for everyone. We had a blast doing our performance for everyone. 
For our Sangeet decor we decided to have a Bollywood Fiesta theme. The Sangeet, is a celebration of coming together of the two families in the union of their children.Sangeet is one of more fun and vibrant functions of the big fat Indian wedding. Like most cultures, Hindu customs, too, incorporate music as the soul of a wedding celebration and so the Sangeet function too is abound with enthusiastic dancing and singing against the background of live performances. We really enjoyed the performances by our family members and groomsmen.  Our guest enjoyed the surprise drum show we had for them.

Our Wedding Reception!!! Being that all 6 of our wedding events were either outside or on beach.  We wanted a change of scenery and so we went indoors.  We decided to have a dramatic and elegantly styled wedding reception so we  transported  our guest back in time to the era of glitz and glamour in Old Hollywood! With an exquisite cake, stunning fashion, a red carpet draped tunnel entrance, glam tables and a venue dripping in  gold, roses, disco ball, feathers, and crystals it was real showstopper! 

 

See you at the soiree!

Novi, MI Indian Wedding by Sapan Ahuja Photography

We have reached the final event of the upscale Indian wedding of Radhika and Harsh! Aria Cinema Films shared with us the amazing images of their glam bash at the fantastic Suburban Collection and created a beautiful wedding album of the celebration which included all the imagery you are about to see! A memorable first dance lit up with fireworks opened the dance floor for the amazing dance entertainment program performed by family and friends which was enlivened with the music of the sought-after Singh Innovations. The sweet part of the night was provided by Cakes by Stephanie with a special three-tier. Krishna Catering and Restaurant's dinner delivered their best flavors to all guests who enjoyed the fantastic feast in the most wonderful table set up and decor! Marigold Wedding Planners translated the couple's vision for their last wedding night into a pure visual feast, decorating each table with big pink floral hues and creating a sophisticated stage for the new Mr. and Mrs. Radhika's ravishing floral lehenga was perfectly finished off with  a romantic side loose hairstyle from Lulu Beauty Lounge that definitely made her the queen of the night while her hubby Harsh looked equally handsome in a black tuxedo that made him stole the limelight too!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Harsh had seen me at an arangetram years ago but I didn't officially meet him until 2012 where my cousin convinced him to come out at a club because I was going to be here. I had no idea until he got there. We shared a dance (apparently to Drake's Take Care); him and I have a slightly different recollection of this night. He added me on Facebook the next day but we never spoke or saw each other for the next couple years. In Jan 2014, another one of my cousins who went to college with him came into town and connected with him at a party. I thought my cousin may have said something too brotherly to him after finding out that Harsh knew me, and so I messaged him on Facebook to apologize on behalf of my cousin. Harsh said nothing happened and he instantly asked for my number and to go on a date with me. Our first date was the day after my birthday where he surprised me with all the Lord of the Rings DVD in Blue Ray. It's been a rollercoaster since then but the rest is history!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Harsh and I had decided to get married after dating each other since 2014. We officially met each other's family in April so we all could get to know each other, however, a surprise proposal was still coming. Harsh was really into designing the ring himself. I didn't want to see the ring because I wanted what he put his heart into to be the ring I wore for the rest of my life. He spent months researching and designing the ring he wanted to give me and it turned out to be perfect! He finally proposed in Chicago, our favorite city that we now live in, on a random weekend in July. Harsh had taken me out to dinner to RPM Italian and then later proposed on one of the Chicago bridges downtown. He had one of his friends capture the moment which means a lot to have now.
 
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 both are from Michigan and had decided to marry there since all our friends/family were mainly there. Harsh and I had already moved to Chicago so it was difficult planning all the details from so afar and making the frequent trips back home. Harsh had just started MBA school and a new job, and I also had just started a new job. Luckily, we had a good support system at home that took on most of the planning and made our lives much easier. The decor was one of my favorite parts! I wanted the decor to match all our (couple's) outfits by complimenting them. I didn't want the decor be so overwhelming that the couple gets lost in it. Tina did a great job in making it happen! Our hair/makeup artist is great, and was able to make my dream of more traditional hair styles happen so effortlessly! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always dreamt of shopping for my wedding outfits with my mom and sister in India. We went to a couple places and I tried on several bridal lenghas but couldn't find anything unique. I felt I was out of options so decided to pick the best one of the variety I was shown. I decided to try one more shop and found the one instantly. It was unique and reminded me of Sabyasachi style bridal gowns in the traditional red/white style I was going for. Simple, elegant and unique. All my family who came with me also instantly knew it was the one! I still dream of being able to wear that outfit again someday!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was shopping for my dream wedding outfits/jewelry in India and then trying to match decor at each event based on the couple's outfits. Fashion and decor are 2 of my favorite things and it was so fun doing it all together!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Harsh and I were so caught up in the wedding events but afterwards, many of our guests came to us and our family raving about the decor, food, and the organization of the event. Months later, people have forgotten the little details, but they haven't forgotten the food and how smoothly everything went. Our guests can get as exhausted as us and we wanted to make sure they were going to be comfortable and satisfied. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
One of my favorite moments is when the doors opened to the wedding hall and I heard one of my favorite songs played. It was a moment I will never forget because I got to see all my closest family/friends all in one room with such a spectrum of emotions on the biggest day of my life. Emotions that only come out in moments like these. Harsh and I decided to keep it traditional and see each other for the first time at the mandap, so it was a big deal because he hadn't seen me as a bride yet until the shawl was let down between 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.
My sister and I are dancers and she had always dreamt of creating a special and unique entertainment program for me when I get married someday. My sister and brother-in-law/sister-in-law secretly planned an amazing entertainment program that was performed at the reception. Both our families had involved our closest friends/family/parents to engage in the variety of performances. Harsh had even had a surprise performance. It was all so perfect & amazing! I can barely remember who was all in it because I was in so awe. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
One of my aunt's told me, before all the ceremonies started, that I should take moments throughout all the wedding festivities to stop, stare, and breathe in the moment with all your family and friends all in one room together celebrating you and the groom! It's easy to get caught up on the details in the moment that you spent months organizing, but the day of, just forget that all and breathe in the moment! 

I hope you had fun with today's reading! See you on Tuesday.

Morrisville, NC Indian Wedding by Theo Milo Photography

I am so happy to be back with all the details of Sadhana and Prad! The beautiful couple we met in our previous post now headed to the grand Hindu Society of North Carolina to be wed in a grand Hindu ceremony! Katen Shah Designs framed the solemn moment with a divine triple floral arch, while a splendid golden carved structure stood behind the lovely bride and groom! The aisle was equally ravishing with a long line of the cutest floral arrays that decorated the lovely bridal entrance. To say "I do", the beautiful Sadhana went for a traditional South Indian wedding trousseau in a vibrant orange and dazzling golden color, while an exquisite jewelry selection really made the look unique. Her prince charming, Prad's attire resembled the bridal hues and a sweet bridal party joined the newlyweds in superb rosy sarees! Check the beautiful ceremonies and sacred rituals that joined Sadhana and Prad's lives in our complete gallery by the talented Theo Milo Photography!
