Queens, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Virdee Films Photo & Cinema

Hello Maharanis! Friday has arrived with a romantic story starring Alana & Kevin. Our charming couple had an intimate ceremony at home, followed by a grand reception to celebrate with their loved ones at the Starlight Pavilion. This location has a particular shine to it, alluring all visitors with spacious and elegant areas, flawless to commemorate special occasions. This luxurious venue served as the lovebirds' paradise on earth while they relished in the warm summer sun surrounded by friends and family. The party went on with the beautiful couple glowing as they started a new chapter in their lives. The adoration and devotion Alana & Kevin have for each other are crystal clear for everyone to see! Their love is like no other, and neither were their stylish attires. Combining traditions from two different backgrounds, our Maharani was a wonder with her marvelous lengha. Alana also dazzled all her guests with a divine white dress for the event. She was a queen from head to toes, glistening alongside her soulmate. The handsome groom didn't stay behind with his polished tuxedo. Together, they were the golden couple of New York! Their enthralling wedding day was a memorable event that no one will let go of for years to come. For our couple, this day will forever hold a special place close to their hearts as they continue to explore their bond. Virdee Films Photo & Cinema made sure to give the sweethearts a token of their love by freezing the highlights of the wedding in an enchanting set of pictures. We have all these fantastic photos in a radiant gallery. So, darlings, go ahead to get elated by this fascinating event! Each shot is a work of art!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met while he was out with his friend who at the time was dating my friend! We were both NOT looking for relationships but as we got to know each other more, the world had different plans for us! Hmmm…I knew he was the one when basically my whole world was against me and he  said he didn’t care, he stayed by my side through each battle near and far from the beginning and that’s when I knew.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He took me on a Soca cruise around NYC and as we took a romantic (SUPER LONG) walk on the pier, we made the corner and all of my closest family, friends and pup were there to watch him get down on one knee whilst holding will you marry me signs!! If that wasn’t enough, when we got back to my house, my backyard was set up by my mom, my big sister and my best friend with pictures of us everywhere, cake and our closest family members! It was really special to me.

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 were one of those “COVID” couples who had to reorganize, postpone, and basically replan our entire wedding. We decided to have an intimate Muslim ceremony in 2020 and continued to plan to our bigger even ration for 2021. As an Indo-Caribbean Dancer in the community and my husband, who provides special effects for events we were lucky to work with a lot of our friends who are AMAZING vendors! Planning the smaller details was actually the easiest part! *we were lucky in that aspect*

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I really wasn’t too picky about our bridal outfits which sounds kind of crazy lol! However, my husband was and he wanted to incorporate blue and white. Of course I wanted just a tad bit of red to be a traditional Hindu bride for our families so one of our very best friends from Bolly Couture custom designed our RED WHITE AND BLUE coordinated bridal outfits to fit perfectly with our 4th of July Wedding Weekend!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part about planning was probably listening to husband. LOL, weird right? I say this because planning our entire wedding ourselves, to having it canceled to postponing to changing the dates to making sure vendors were available, etc..it becomes pretty overwhelming added with the stress of our everyday lives. My husband was so good at making sure we kept our cool and basically taking over when I was OVER it for lack of better words! It definitely made us stronger as a couple!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Oh man, I can definitely say our food and our photography/videography. Those were two things we were VERY specific about. We are MAJOR foodies of every culture and we LOVE having pictures and videos for memories. I think our guests were happy with both of those categories throughout all 5 days of events! We had the most amazing food which we catered from our favorite restaurants as well as family cooked home style and we had the best photography and videography team for all of our events (ADESIGNPHOTOGRAPHY & VIRDEE FILMS!)

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A special moment that replays for me isn’t really ONE moment but a set of moments where I’d be watching my husband enjoy all the hard work we put into our wedding. It 100% takes a village to successfully celebrate and pull off a 5 day postponed Hindu wedding but none of it would have possible without my husband taking initiative and physically making things happen. He told me the same about me when we spoke about what we remember most!

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.
Decor for everyday other than the Hindu Wedding Ceremony and our Reception were 100% done by us! I drew out what I wanted and we built backdrops, packaged all the small things, ordered like everything on Amazon and got some decor from our friends, got on our ladders, our hands and knees, and brought my vision to life! Our Hindu Wedding decor was done by Royal Touch Design and our Reception Decor was done by Floral Explosions! Both located in Richmond Hill, Queens. As a dancer who performs for multiple Indian wedding events I really didn’t want it to be about ME and my dancing. I wanted this long awaited celebration to be about people celebrating the love between Kevin and I. However, we had a small mehendi night item that I did with my bridesmaids and fun bridal party performance at our reception choreographed by me. It was more for fun than anything else!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Please please please do NOT stress the day of so assign small tasks to your bridal party or family members! We were so keen on not bothering anyone and doing everything ourselves (which was a little bit of a mistake on our part) but all of it ended up coming out pretty good LOL. However a few stressful moments on the wedding days could’ve been avoided! That’s my honest and best advice!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
For venues, we kept it very intimate and celebrated every event besides our reception in my husband’s childhood home backyard! We like to CELEBRATE and be happy on occasions like this (aka our family likes to party nonstop) so we felt it right to keep it at home! Our music, sound set up, special effects for everyday were provided by our families and probably bias to say but the best, Revel Event Productions, 113 Sound Crew, & Euphoria Vibes. My family and I had our mehendi done by none other than my friend Yukti Grover. My Jewlery by Kirni Designs. Mehendi Night Hair/Makeup done by my other good friend, MakeupByVani. My Hindu Wedding Ceremony Hair/Makeup by BeautyByTamanna and Reception Hair/Makeup SassyHairbyVanessa and Kim K Sharma. ALL of our outfits were by the amazing BollyCouture.

I hope you are feeling imaginative, queens. I'll see you tomorrow with another happily ever after!

Cherry Hill, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Hello, my beautiful Maharanis! You won't believe the story I am about to share with you. Our enchanting couple, Seema & Rishabh, sure knew how to pamper their guest with a magical wedding celebrated at the Cherry Hill Hotel. The venue provided a lovely ambiance for their ceremony and the intimacy and warmness this special day needed. And the gorgeous Maharani, Seema, didn't delight everyone with just one but two divine lenghas throughout the night. She was magnificent! I am sure Rishabh was utterly fascinated by her! Aren't we all, ladies? Although the newlyweds were the heart of the celebration, I have to admit that the original and elegant decor caught my eye. A Harry Potter-themed, Maharanis! I am so amazed by the cake's artistic work and the carefully personalized details Seema & Rishabh got to combine their magical love with the charm from Harry Potter. Of course, the scenery wasn't the only compelling aspect of this day. Illusion DJs brought some mysticism, too, keeping the guests dancing the whole night. On top of everything, our lovebirds' romance was as radiant as ever, completing the fairytale we all dream of. All magical moments deserve to be framed forever, and the skillful team from Lightyear Studio gave our couple a token of their affection and devotion that not even the most potent of spells could ever erase. Sweethearts, you can see the sparks coming out of every picture. You won't want to miss the stunning photographs I have for you in this gallery, my darlings. So wait no more! It is time to boost your imagination.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met the traditional way (at least for the digital age)- online via Dil Mil. We had 5 in-person dates before March 2020 and then we went virtual for 6 months. We resumed in-person dating in late August. I started to have an idea that he was the real deal when he took me to a library on our 3rd date and then an antique book fair on our 5th date (I love books). As he followed me from vendor to vendor for hours without complaining, I knew we could have a future. He claims he knew that pretty much right away. 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I’m not a huge fan of surprises and COVID made it almost impossible to plan the original proposal I had always wanted (either at Harry Potter World in Florida or the library of Congress in Washington, DC … yes, I’ve thought a lot about this) so we improvised. We met on the steps of my favorite place in NYC - the New York Public Library- and he got down on one knee and asked ‘the question’. He also gave me an old edition of my favorite work in classic literature (the scarlet letter) and wrote a love message on the inside cover. That last part was all his idea without prompting on my part (I had always secretly envisioned something like that but never told him). 

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 got engaged in May 2021 and set our wedding date for September of that same year. It was a little stressful but I hadn’t wanted a long engagement (I was just ready to move onto the next phase of our lives together). We saw a few venues and found one with the perfect date (Labor Day weekend). The vendors all fell into place through some family connections and luck. The wedding theme colors were shades of pink and mint green. The reception was a mix of a library and Harry Potter theme (yes- he was good enough to go along with it even though he’s not a HP fan). We significantly downscaled the wedding due to COVID concerns. However, on the flip side - this made it more intimate and gave us the ability to do some unique things for the decor (like the place cards where we sorted everyone in the different Harry Potter houses).

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
The wedding outfit was a struggle. I hadn’t wanted a traditional red or white outfit so I opted for pink. I wanted to pair it with another bright color and I always enjoyed the combination of pink and mint green so I went looking for that. Since we couldn’t do wedding shop in India, we did all our shopping in the NY and NJ area. My mom, aunt, and cousins supported me as I went from shop to shop, changing my mind constantly. Finally, we decided to just design it and we found someone who was able to create it in the limited time frame we had. I found the reception outfit at a wholesale place (it just happened to be the same color as Hermione’s Yule ball dress robes) and had it altered from a gown to a lengha.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The food tasting was definitely the most enjoyable part - mainly because we like to eat. I also had fun coming up with Harry Potter-themed decor and collecting all the childhood pics for a background slide show at the reception.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I’ve been told the food was especially amazing (especially the pani puri). My cousins enjoyed the Harry Potter-themed decor (most of my aunts and uncles didn’t understand it).

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance. We had taken a few dance classes just in case but we were both still nervous (neither of us are blessed with coordination or grace). However, once we got onto the dance floor, everyone else faded away and it was just us. The smoke effect made it even more magical. 

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 mendhi was a low-key backyard affair but my cousins surprised me with professional decorations and unique homemade treats designed just for the event.
For the wedding, on a table at the entrance, we displayed the wedding pics of our grandmothers, aunts, and mothers. We wanted to show their stories as the beginning of ours.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Communication is key. Talk everything out with your significant other and don’t be afraid to voice your opinions.

Darlings, I hope you enjoyed today’s entry. Keep coming back for more happily ever afters!
