How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met online! He messaged me and we eventually met up in person after texting for a short time. I knew he was the one pretty early into our relationship, he was so sweet and I have always felt like I’ve known him much longer than I actually have.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was his birthday, and he told me were going on a friend’s boat in to celebrate, but when we arrived at our destination it was actually the beach where he had a cute little proposal set up.
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 the wedding was quite a unique experience, especially earlier on in the pandemic. We had a lot of virtual consultations and made decisions via email or video call. We put a lot of trust into our vendors and our ability to communicate what we want. We had a vision in mind and wanted the wedding to reflect a romantic, understated yet elegant vibe.
Theme-wise we were going for an elegant ode to Valentine’s Day and colors like red, pink, magenta, and white, since the event was so close to Valentine’s day.
Our venue really brought our vision of a romantic garden wedding and elegant ballroom reception to life. It was the perfect setting for our event.
Getting our outfits however was a nerve-wracking experience as we had to order them from India over the span of multiple video calls and were not able to travel there to shop or get fit.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted a traditional red lengha for my wedding day. However, being the type of person that am I wanted to do something a little different from the norm, so I opted for a really soft pink, almost white dupatta/veil to drape over my head. I also had a super soft turquoise almost white second dupatta to drape across the outfit. Both dupattas matched the pink and turquoise details on the lengha and really stood out!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was definitely the food, cake, and dessert tasting because who doesn’t love food?! It was also a nice break from the stressful parts of planning where my husband & I could enjoy some food and make easy decisions.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests really loved the vibe, music, & food at all of our events. They were pleasantly surprised that we decided to go for a plated full-service dinner over a buffet, which is more typical for a South Asian wedding. We did have a chaat station at the cocktail hour that was buffet style, which was a huge hit with all the guests!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first look! The look on my husband’s face when he saw me as a bride was something that makes me smile whenever I think about it!
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.
Two days before the wedding we had an intimate Haldi/mehndi at our home, our families got together, sang traditional Punjabi wedding songs, ate, and had henna done while we kicked off the official wedding festivities. The evening before the wedding we hosted our sangeet, which was the party before the party, we ate, drank, and danced all night. My husband and I did a choreographed performance together as well as with our families! We also had live dhol music. It really was the perfect way to start the wedding celebrations!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
As cliché as it may sound- Understand that everything will not be perfect no matter how hard we try. Things are going to go wrong here and there and in the end, your day is going to feel perfect despite it all & you’ll only remember all the good memories! It can be an emotional time, so definitely process your emotions however you need to, and budget for a wedding planner or at least a day if coordinator! You will be SO glad you did!

That's all for this week beauty queens! I hope you have enjoyed all the stories. Come back for more!

Cancun, MX Sikh Wedding by Amrit Photography

Happy Friday, beautiful Maharanis! We are excited to share with you the charming and magical wedding of our lovely couple Parmeet & Jay that was held in no better place than Cancun Mexico at the Planet Hollywood Cancun. So, get yourself comfortable and enjoy this wedding bash thoroughly orchestrated by Destawed. They designed beautiful decors that mirrored the glamorous looks of our gorgeous Maharani, who always looked like a goddess after being pampered by Varaich Vanity by Aman. Parmeet wore a lengha that merged a couple of red tones and silver incrustations, supplied by Pithambra by Manisha and Frontier Heritage. And in case you were wondering where she got the spectacular dazzling pieces of jewelry, they came from the all-famous Her Fashion Vault collection. After the wedding ceremonies, there was time to celebrate the newlyweds with a vibrant reception party enlivened by DJ Hans and Dj Raw, who owned the stage playing upbeat melodies that put everyone on their feet. The smiles, kisses, and good vibes were captured by Amrit Photography, who witnessed the loving atmosphere present during the celebration. You will love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We first noticed each other in college while we were with our friends. We finally ended up meeting through mutual friends. We both had different classes at 9 am, so one day he asked me for breakfast after class. Funny thing, he did not wake up in time for his class and missed his class. However, he still managed to make it on time and "walk out with his class" when it was dismissed, pretending he had just gotten out of class. He didn't know that I could see him from my class window walking from the parking lot to his class. That's when I knew he was the one.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was two weeks before his brother's wedding, and he asked to go to Waldorf Astoria for the weekend to relax before all the festivities. He had planned a rooftop dinner that night and once I walked up with a beautiful 'Marry Me' sign with flower petals and candles and our favorite song playing. When I was standing there, I look over and our siblings and our friends were standing just smiling. I was on cloud nine and nervous because I did not remember a word he said out of the speech that he said to me besides 'Will You Marry Me.'
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I did have a color in mind way before getting proposed to and it was pastels, I was so against doing red because to me that just didn't stick and I wanted my color to look different. But when I did start lengha shopping I tried on a red lengha because I liked the design of it and not the red color. Let me just say, when I tried the red lengha on I just fell in love completely, and from that moment on I knew I wanted to do red but still to keep it a little different, I found the anarkali style that caught my eye.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The most enjoyable part of our wedding was taking our family to Cancun and having them be part of our wedding week. None of our parents and even most of our relatives had been to Cancun or let alone out to another country. Seeing them in Cancun enjoying themselves during the wedding and relaxing just brought joy to us. We were one of the first ones in our families to have a destination wedding and having our families there as part of our special day was just amazing.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think something that highlighted and tied our whole wedding week together was having Amrit Mann at our reception and seeing everyone's faces lit up and enjoying themselves. We have never had so much fun!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I think I would just say take a breath and take it slow. I had so much leading up to the wedding. The two months before were just all wedding planning with the family and packing and as much as I was annoyed, I look back and remember those moments. Enjoy your wedding week because it will be over in a blink of an eye.
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

Bloomfield, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Hugh C Photography

On this wonderful Monday, I feel elated to share Samantha & Atiq's heartwarming story with you, darlings. Our protagonists had a celebration like no other at home, an unseamed and intimate way to start this new quest together. The lovebirds had the Zazzle team do the heartwarming stationery for the day while Reyes Party Rental Corp. handled the commodities for the guests to feel at home. Our couples' lovenest transformed into dreamland with a charming aura spreading across the place as the ceremony continued. Samantha, our divine Maharani, was just as captivating with Shaz Makeup and Mehndi Artist's assistance. This 5-times certified artist is as proficient as she is meticulous. With her close attention to detail and fantastic skills, this professional combined the bride's unique beauty with the graceful mehndi for her grand day. Our marvelous Maharani enthralled her guests with a heavenly red lengha from Utsav Fashion. No one could keep their eyes away from her, including the ravishing groom. The sweet smiles on both Samantha & Atiq's faces completed the picture-perfect scene. There is no doubt these two are head-over-heels for each other! A love as pure as their deserves to be celebrated to the maximum. Our couples' wedding day will be a core memory for them that won't ever be left behind, thanks to Hugh C Photography and his skills behind the lenses. He captured romanticism perfectly throughout the day. Maharanis, you can find his marvelous work in this enchanting gallery to get your creativity going. Go ahead and fall in love with this sweet couple!
