Murfreesboro, TN Indian Wedding by Sapan Ahuja Photography

Hello, beautiful ladies! This time we'll be taking a look at the fantastic reception party that brought the wedding festivities to an end! And believe us, this is one incredible gala like you haven't seen in quite a while! From the get-go, Priya & Arpit surprised everyone with a grand entrance! They burst into the ballroom of the Embassy Suites by Hilton Nashville SE Murfreesboro, driving a fantastic sports car with a unique red and black camouflage paint design!  After their big entrance, the party began, and oh boy, what a party it was! Once more time, Red Umbrella outdid themselves and crafted a perfect decor that set the mood for this luxurious event. Without any question, this was the dreamy reception party these lovebirds always imagined! And we want to make a big shoutout to Sapan Ahuja Photography for the outstanding work they did in the photographic department as every single shot is a masterpiece. And you can check them out in the gallery that we have prepared for today. Just in case the photos are not enough, the team from WalkOnWater Productions also made a blockbuster film that you might want to check. So there are no excuses not to enjoy this awesome wedding!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Arpit and I matched on a dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel, in February 2017. For our first date, we had intended to only go out for dinner, but ended up going to three different places just to make the date last longer. Over the next few weeks we were talking multiple times a day, and the chemistry just kept getting stronger. I knew this was it when the feelings I developed for him were like none other I had ever experienced before.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It's incredibly difficult to keep secrets from me, I'm too observant. Turns out Arpit had planned my proposal by getting my cousin Shilpa involved as his sidekick. I'm always her backup plus-one for events, and she had asked me to accompany her to an engagement party for a good friend of hers. On the way to the party, she told me she had to stop by a flower shop to pick up a few things for the engagement venue. We went to the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, a beautiful park in Lincoln Park Chicago and was approached by a girl who had told us the park was offering a scavenger hunt. I immediately declined since we were only there to pick up flowers (and of course, we're in evening dresses and high heels) but Shilpa said we still had plenty of time before the party. The girl handed me a canister with a scroll, which said to get ready for a journey and to search for the first clue. I looked up, and the girl was gone. I immediately thought this was a little creepy, and told Shilpa that we should go. She said she saw the second clue on a rock not too far away, and we should give it a try. Long story short, Arpit had set up clues all around the park, which led me to him standing under a bridge. He proposed, and I was definitely not expecting any of it! To make it better, the girl who had given me the first scroll was the photographer he hired to capture the proposal! :)
 
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 for 5 events (Mendhi, Grah Shanti, Sangeet, Wedding, and Reception) meant 5 iteniraries, menus, outfits, decor schemes, hair and makeup looks, etc. I really had to get organized, so I made my own wedding planner book that I took to every vendor meeting and used to put inspiration in.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I really wanted to go the traditional route for my bridal lengha. I chose a bright, beautiful red with gold stitching.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved that Arpit was just as excited about wedding planning as I was. We worked together on most things and I think that made it a lot more fun.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food was definitely a hit. Also, we loved surprising our guests! During the Sangeet, Arpit and I put on a surprise dance performance, and during the reception, we surprised our guests by driving into the reception hall!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
This was a behind the scenes moment that always brings a smile to my face. After we came back from the Vidaai, I had about one hour before I had to shower and start getting hair and makeup done for the reception. We were both in Arpit's hotel room and he was in a shirt and sweatpants, and I was still in my lengha. I realized there would be no way I would be able to eat and then fully undress myself in time, so two of my amazing bridesmaids, Amber and Forum, came to our room and took out the dozens of bobby pins in my hair and the safety pins in my dress while I ate. We were laughing most of the time and it was one of those little moments that made a lot of the wedding stress go away.
 
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 reception was my absolute favorite. I had envisioned a starry night theme with dark colors and bright stars, and my wonderful decorator, Red Umbrella, made it all come to life. By the the best moment was when everyone was facing the front doors for our entrace, but instead we drove in the side service entrance and around the hall to the front of the dance floor.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Get organized and remember the bigger picture. At the end of the day, it won't matter that you ran out of a certain appetizer or that your favorite song wasn't played. This is your wedding day, have fun and don't let one little thing ruin your mood.

That is all for today, darlings! We hope you are ready to face the last part of the week fully motivated and inspired! See you tomorrow for more!

Alexandria, VA Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Hello, Maharanis! We are so happy you could make it to Nisha & Avi's wedding reception party. I'm pretty sure we can all agree that this love story has exceeded all expectations, and the reception party is no exception! So let's jump right into it! This time, it was one of the elegant ballrooms of The Westin Alexandria Old Town that hosted this gala. And we are impressed by the excellent planning and execution of Kundan Events. The overall theme of this reception party was captivating, and it became a major contributor to take this event to the next level! And talking about taking it to the next level, what about the incredible DJ from M4U Events that played the most vibrant Bollywood hits to set the dance floor on fire! One of the most anticipated moments of the evening was Nisha & Avi's first dance as husband and wife. And they surprised everyone when they came up to the dance floor from behind a cloud of dusk to showcase a well-choreographed dance that left everyone speechless. We want to make a special shoutout to Lightyear Studio for the fantastic shots captured, not only on this event but throughout the entire wedding celebration. And it is thanks to those shots that we get to relive this charming love story. If you want to get more details of this celebration, don't miss the gallery that we have prepared for today!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Avi in Philadelphia, while I was finishing up school and he was working. I knew he was “the one” when he bought me tickets to a Chris Brown concert only two weeks after meeting me (or, in all seriousness, the first time he met all of my family during Christmas because he felt right at home, as if he was family already, and the whole reunion just felt complete!)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After years of fantasizing about traveling to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building, Avi surprised me into traveling there together, wrote me a note to meet him at a restaurant near the rooftop, read me a poem (as he had done when he first asked me to be his girlfriend), and sang my favorite Chris Brown song. The night ended with phone calls to our families, dinner, and a surprise yacht ride across the Dubai Marina with an incredible photographer and panoramic views of the entire city. The proposal incorporated parts of both of us and to say it was a dream would be an understatement!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
When I went shopping for my bridal lengha in India, I knew I didn’t want red and gold - I wanted something different. When I reached the Aso Palav store in Ahmedabad, I saw a stunning wine purple maroon velvet dress that I couldn’t take my eyes off of. I also saw a stunning light pink dress with the most beautiful and intricate gold embroidery. I was able to combine both dresses and ‘work’ with a designer to customize my dream outfit.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A special moment of our weekend that constant replays in our minds is our first dance to a cover of “Dusk till Dawn.” We took dance classes to learn different styles of ballroom dancing to showcase our passion for dance, and we incorporated Rumba and Bacchata into it. Although we had practiced for months, the actual moment felt like pure bliss. We weren’t thinking about the moves, the next steps, or if we would mess up the order of our dance styles. We just felt so connected, so royal, and so happy, flowing from one move to the next. Although there were many special moments throughout the weekend, this one was definitely a highlight for both of us! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My main advice for future brides would be to never let the stress of wedding planning, family differences, or the hectic schedule of the wedding weekend take you away from the purpose or compromise your happiness. Take pauses to enjoy it, relish every moment, and realize that no matter what happens, by the end of it, you will have married the love of your life. And at the end of the day, that is truly all that matters. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We would love to thank our incredible vendors! Liz Walters for the phenomenal decorations and for making our every vision and theme come to life, M4U Events (DJ Ravi, MC Ashish) for the most hype and incredible DJ and MC, Kundan Events for event coordination who went above and beyond to assist with every detail of the wedding, Bhavna’s Henna for the most intricate and personalized henna, Lightyear Studio for capturing our engagement and wedding photos with their most beautiful and creative visions, all of our caterers (Taj Caterers, Moghul, Rupa Vira the Signature) who had the most flavorful and variety of food all weekend, The Westin management, The Fiddle Diva for the most talented violinist, Buttercream Bakery DC for the most stunning floral cake, DJ FM for the most creative Selfie Mirror photo booth, Makeup by Adiba, Ramzah Khan, and Nabila Nayyar.
