Arlington, VA Indian Fusion Wedding by Paperbird Photography

Hi, darlings! We are wrapping up our journey through this charming love story with a fantastic reception party. But before we start, let's join Jithu & Tyler on a photoshoot taken before the reception party. For this photoshoot, Maharani Jithu looked stunning in her fashionable Lengha very well complemented with the beautiful hairstyle and makeup that Styles By Swati - Salon SBS created for this occasion. The wavy hairstyle combined volume and smoothness, which was perfect for an outdoor photoshoot and a reception party as it allowed the hair to have delicate movements without losing the style. And this look was enhanced with a discreet makeup incorporating a beautiful ruby color on the lipstick, that praised the adorable and captivating smile of our beautiful Maharani. This winning combination made our beautiful Jithu look like a princess! No wonder why Raja Tyler was amazed by this look, and couldn't take his eyes off of his wife. This moment created a beautiful scene that got immortalized by the talented crew from Paperbird Photography. After the photoshoot, it was time to continue with the reception party held at the Top of the Town. Jithu & Tyler shinned on the dance floor showcasing a well-choreographed dance that left everyone speechless. And thanks to the music and the scheme of lights that Dan Goldman Events prepared for this reception party, this night was a huge success. Without any question, having them on board was a perfect choice as they enlivened every moment of the party and put everyone on their feet. And the guests that were not dancing were captivated by the delicious plates that IndAroma prepared for this event. Hands down, this reception party was one for the books! It was full of happiness, dancing, and above all, lots of love! If you can't get enough of this lovely couple, head into our gallery for more! You are going to love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on OKCupid and after a few messages decided to meet up. He knew I loved beer and suggested we meet at a local dive bar but had no idea that he suggested one of my favorite beer bars!
 
We saw each other two more times that same week. By the end of the week, we both knew that we weren't interested in seeing other people.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After almost a year and a half together, Tyler made sure to buy the ring on an auspicious day (generously provided by my mother).
 
Tyler picked up my parents from Dulles Airport after they returned from a trip to India, and asked my very sleepy parents for their blessing. My parents agreed and promptly fell asleep.
 
That night, also an auspicious day, Tyler took me to dinner at a fancy French restaurant, where we had a bit too much wine. Eventually, Tyler popped the question while I immediately broke into sobs. After crying through most of his proposal, I said yes!
 
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.
Venue:
As our guests came from all over the country and from around the world (India, Dubai!). We wanted to give them a very DC experience. We chose Top of the Town for both ceremonies because of the sweeping views of Washington DC. We wanted our day to show great views of DC during the day and have a great rooftop area for the cocktail ceremony and reception.
 
Hair & Makeup:
I found my HMU team on Instagram and booked them immediately! They worked with me to create a modern Tamil bridal look for the morning complete with a fishtail braid covered in red roses and baby’s breath instead of the traditional jasmine flowers. The look for the Christian ceremony was delicate with nude lips and eyes and was transformed to bright eyes and bright pink lips for the reception.
 
Design:
We focused on simple overall designs that favored bright colors and atmosphere over more complex scenery. For this reason, we choose a relatively simple mandap (stage) and oonjal (swing) for the Hindu ceremony, and a simple, but classic, greenery backdrop for the Christian ceremony.
 
Flowers:
Our decor team came through with a wonderful selection of flowers. One of our favorite design elements was the way in which our decorator worked the colorful flowers of the Hindu ceremony into the greenery backdrop of the Christian ceremony and reused them for our centerpieces. It provided great continuity between the ceremonies, and helped brighten up the Christian ceremony with just the right amount of color.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We wanted to wear traditional attire for the Hindu and Christian ceremonies and wanted outfits that reflected us for the reception. We traveled up and down the entire US eastern seaboard  and coordinated with family in India for our three outfits.
 
For the Hindu ceremony, I wanted to wear a traditional red Kanjeepuram silk saree.  With the help of my aunts and grandmother in India, the red saree was purchased from RMKV silks in Chennai over a 5 am WhatsApp call. Additionally, the saree blouse was custom designed and embroidered with Swarovski crystals in a temple bell design.
 
For the Christian ceremony, I chose a white wedding dress from Amazon after searching through traditional bridal stores and unable to make a final decision. I was drawn to a with lots of tulle and delicate lace details.
 
For the reception, I wanted a bright colored lehenga and selected a yellow lehenga with hot pink details from Ladlee in Atlanta, GA. Not to be outdone, Tyler got a custom made navy blue three piece Jodhpuri suit from Om Fashion Boutique in Edison, NJ. We received so many compliments on our reception outfits and cannot wait to wear them again.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly, being done with wedding planning was the best part!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the baraat and enjoyed  kicking off our wedding with dancing! 
 
Additionally, we planned two surprise dance performances: one with the bride and her friends and one of the bride and groom dancing to lungi dance. Our guests went nuts when they heard lungi dance come on and were up on their feet with us!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The best part of our wedding was seeing our family and friends having a great time! My favorite story was about one of my best friends, Tyler's brothers, and one of my uncles roaming the hotel halls after getting back from a bar at 2 am and being gently scolded by my mother to go to their rooms. It was hilarious and also one of my favorite parts about weddings - bringing people together.
 
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 imagined our wedding to be warm, traditional but fusion wedding.  Although we are a modern couple, with all the cultural clashes that come with that, it was important to us that both of our families felt comfortable and represented in our wedding.   
 
Our rehearsal dinner followed this theme and was held at the Le Meridien Arlington’s outdoor taco shack, The Yard. We wanted a terrace space that would encourage our families to move around and interact with each other and a taco shack with picnic tables and lots of standing high tops worked perfectly! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
A wedding planner is a must! They are the professionals and have probably seen it all --late vendors, last minute changes, the ever-changing seating chart! They are a great source of information and great listeners who can guide you through your vision.
 
Sometimes the details and material items can drive you crazy! Before we got into wedding planning, we wrote down three things we wanted our wedding to be: family, fun, and love. When we were stressing about small details like label placement on envelopes or the design of table toppers, we circled back to  the three things we wrote down. It helped ground us and reminded us to focus on the important things.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We wanted to incorporate our two families by having heirloom pieces be a part of wedding. I wore my mother's diamond earrings and my late grandmother's gold belt for the Hindu ceremony. For the Christian ceremony, I had with me the groom's late grandmother's handkerchief embroidered with our wedding date. This helped us weave our families into our day and made it that much sweeter.

We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow for a new adventure. You already know, same place, same time, so don't miss it out!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through mutual friends about 11 years ago. We were just acquaintances and ran into each other here and there over the years. Once I moved to Dallas, we got closer and became really good friends and then it just happened!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We actually both proposed to each other! I was secretly planning mine and he was planning his. Both of our sisters knew about it and didn't tell either of us. The most synchronistic part...we planned them 3 days apart. He beat me to it though and proposed first.

He did a Dil Toh Pagal Hai themed proposal because that is his FAVORITE movie. He transformed our home into a movie set and made every room a different scene from the movie. He had lines written down for me to play along with. He even had me do outfit changes similar to the ones Madhuri Dixit wore in the movie. It was so magical! In the end, he planned a little late-night dinner upstairs with an "Italian view." Everything came full circle then. He pulled out this game called "The Love Game" that I used on him when we first starting hanging out years before. Of course back then it wasn't called the love game; it was just a questionnaire to get to know someone on a more intimate level. After all that, he proposed and I did a cake smash! Both of our sisters came out of a room and surprised me and then we FaceTimed my parents who were dressed for the occasion.

My proposal was more public. I had it at the Don Quixote theater in Deep Ellum. It was a continuous dance number of all the songs that he loved growing up until that point. I had my friends, his friends, and our sisters in on it. After the whole dance sequence finished, he met me upstairs in the dressing room where I was down on one knee with our dog. He loved every second of it! The highlight of the whole dance was Ek Pal Ka Jeena from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. He said that song changed his life along with many other teenage boys at that time. His sister took the lead on that and crushed it!

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.
Planning was so simple for me because I remembered that I had to stay organized. I booked everything a year or even more in advance. We really didn't want a big wedding to be honest. We were happy going to court and signing papers and calling it a day. We did it for our parents since we were both the eldest in our families. What we told ourselves throughout the whole process is we are doing it for us and no one else. I think it's important for every couple to remember why they are getting married to begin with.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted a deep velvet red. During our shopping, we looked at so many and it can get confusing at times too. I had to come back the next day and my decision totally changed. I wanted something different and unique and I think I picked the perfect dress for that.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was having so much support from everybody! From our family to our close friends, everyone was so happy and so willing to help at any given point.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think our guests loved the music! Our DJ was amazing! They were from New Jersey known as D&S Event Solutions. We had a video wall during our reception which highlighted our pictures, same day edit, and amazing graphics that those guys came up with. Their MC was AMAZING! He really knew how to engage the crowd. I also think the biggest highlight was my mother's dance during our Sangeet with a special appearance by my father. It was great.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The part that replays the most was me walking down the aisle and Dilan waiting at the other end. The priest let him see him because he wanted to give me a rose and locket as soon as I got to the front. He was tearing up, which made me tear up! What was extra special about it was that I let him choose my aisle song. He did not listen to that song until our wedding day and waited for that moment. That was the most magical part.

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 had so many different components to our wedding. First one was that we had a double baraat. I, the bride, had my own baraat. We both had vintage Cadillacs and met in the middle. I believe there was a moment from that featured on Bollyshake. Second, during our reception, we did a sand ceremony, which was my husband's idea. Also during our reception, he wrote several shayari's (Hindi poems) that he wanted to share with me and everyone in attendance. During our Sangeet night, we had a casino night going on at the same time in which the chips were turned in for raffle tickets and we gave out prizes in the end.

Side note: while filming for our pre-wedding shoot, we decided to incorporate a water gun fight in our video which was so fun to do!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I want to tell all Brides-To-Be that it doesn't matter what happens, things go wrong, and things also go right. The most important thing to keep in mind is to remember why you want to get married in the first place.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The pictures can tell you everything about our wedding! There was so much love and joy from everyone and we did not want it to end! We loved every moment.  

 

That is all for today! It is time to get back from this dream and to continue with your day, but we hope to see you here tomorrow for more! Until then, have a great one!
