Duluth, GA Indian Fusion Wedding by Brandon Andrews Photography

Good morning, Maharanis! We have a beautiful story for you today! Swathi & Matthew's wedding celebration is a mix of tradition, colors, and emotions that we loved. And we are sure that you are going to love it as well! As soon as this wedding came into our editorial desks, our heart exploded with joy! Immediately we knew that this was one we wanted to share with you, so let's check it out together! When Swathi & Matthew decided they wanted to join their lives forever, they knew what they wanted. They wanted to pay homage to both their backgrounds and traditions, that is why they decided to have two different ceremonies to commemorate their love! We are starting this journey by taking a look at the western wedding ceremony held at the exclusive Sonesta Gwinnett Place Atlanta. For this first ceremony, Envi Event Planning took the wheel to design and execute the event, while the talented team from Aayojan took care of the decor and floral arrangements. And what fantastic work they did to create the perfect scenario for our lovebirds to profess their love. This ceremony was beautiful and full of surprises! One of the biggest surprises was Matthew's entrance on a vintage bicycle! This unique entrance caught everyone by surprise and added an extra touch to this life-changing event! The ceremony was beautiful, but the peek moment happened when Swathi & Matthew shared their vows. This emotional moment melted everyone's heart to the point that everyone had a hard time keeping their composure. And we are sure than more than one of the guests dropped a tear of joy while listening to this two expressing their love for each other. If you want to check more of this ceremony, head into our gallery. You are going to love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through family friends who were trying to set us up.  I think we both had little to no expectations before we met so it ended up being a good surprise.  There was a point after dating where I was going through a rough patch at work.  Rushi would listen to me complain (a lot) and be supportive.  Something unpleasant happened with my supervisors, and I remember when I told him what happened - he was so upset.  Probably more upset than me.  I remember thinking, "Wow, he really cares about me.  This could be it."  The next 2 years sealed the deal!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had been planning a trip to Ireland.  Rushi had already been there before but this was my first time visiting there.  We rented a car and drove along the countryside, visiting some new places for him and his favorites we had been before.  We were in Killarney visiting Killarney National Park.  We started walking into this forest-like area off the beaten path.  We were getting deeper and deeper in the forest (I was starting to panic a bit).  We reached a clearing where it was large, circle of mowed grass encircled by large trees.  In the middle of this, there was a gazebo with some benches. He sat down first, and as I was about to sit down next to him, I noticed this ring on the bench.  I picked it up and told him, " look, someone left their ring."  He responded with, "yes, I will marry you."  And now the running joke is that I proposed to him lol.  

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 our wedding was a bit of a challenge as our families are in different locations.  We considered multiple locations but ended up picking home for me - Fort Worth, TX.  We looked at venues that could accommodate what we were looking for in a venue - an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception.  We ended up picking the Worthington Renaissance Hotel in Sundance Square - they had an amazing rooftop terrace with fountains that we thought would be perfect for the ceremony.

Venues took some time overall.  I visited a lot of them and hardest part would be availability.  Some were booked almost 2 years in advance.  But it was worth it to keep looking for the right place.  

Hair and make up - I did my own makeup for my mehndi, pithi, and rehearsal dinner.  For the wedding and reception, Rushi and my mom convinced me that I should have someone help me so it would be one less thing to worry about.  They were absolutely they were right.  I didn't do a trial but I looked at Instagram photos to figure out whose style I liked - MUA who would accomplish the look I was looking for.  The HMUA who did get me ready for both ceremony/reception did an amazing job - my makeup stayed right where it was supposed to all night and she accomplished the look without the use of so many products.

Decor theme - because we wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony - we tried to keep it simple.  We had a garden theme - with pink and white flowers and green foliage.  We used lanterns and birdcages along the aisle that were repurposed as reception centerpieces.  

DJ - We spent a lot of time finding a DJ.  We wanted someone who would turn our reception into a party. 
 We used this company called Outspoken Visions and they were amazing!  They were so flexible, moved out Gobo Monogram from the cocktail area, had a tabla player, worked with us on the uplighting.  Could not say enough nice things about this company!

Cake/Donuts - we opted to have cupcakes for the guests and a 6" naked cutting cake for us.  We wanted our guests to have options.  We got our cupcakes from Gigi's Cupcakes in North Fort Worth.  They did a fabulous job setting up and Kristi was so pleasant to work with.  I had seen donut walls on Instagram and really wanted to have one.  I worked with Angie at FunkyTown Donuts.  They also were so easy to work with and did an excellent job setting up and making suggestions that would work for our wedding.  

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Outfits - I went shopping with my mom and aunt at Sari Palace in Oakland, CA.  I had tried looking locally in DFW and also Atlanta at Global Mall with no luck.  Sari Palace had a huge selection and the outfits were customizable - such a great experience working with them.  I tried on about 20 total outfits before I decided on a lengha.  I love the color pink so it just ended that both my ceremony/reception outfits had pink or pink hues in it.  I loved that it had a contemporary look but yet still looked fitting for a bridal outfit.  I picked a Sherwani for Rushi that was similar to my bridal outfit (he didn't care what he wore lol). For the reception, my outfit was a dusty rose.  Rushi and I had picked a blue suit for him so he wore a tie matching my outfit.  

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly - being done, or rather checking things off our list.  I think both Rushi and I were really excited when the rehearsal dinner started because we knew that we had done our best and we were gonna have fun going forward no matter what.  

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We tried to keep our wedding casual.  The venue was in the middle of Sundance Square where people could walk around to go shopping or eating.  We had a later ceremony start time of 2p and reception to follow.  We asked that our bridesmaids and groomsmen wear whatever they want in shades of either gold/white/pink.  I think we wanted everyone to just come and enjoy themselves.

Oh and the donut wall 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance.  We didn't practice at all - we hadn't entirely decided if we would do a first dance until the week of.  Rushi loves Celion Dion (rightfully so) so we danced to "That's The Way It Is."  We just went in circles, but I remember being just really excited in that moment.  

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to enjoy the day of, it really does go by so fast.

So let's check it out together! As we mentioned before, this wedding celebration is full of surprises, and here we have the first surprise for you: We are going international! We'll be heading into the striking Fairmont Flame Towers in Baku, Azerbaijan, to join Eesha & Prateek at their vibrant and elegant Sangeet Ceremony! For this pre-wedding ceremony, our beautiful young couple decided to combine their backgrounds with Azerbaijan's culture and tradition. The result: A fantastic "Middle East meets Mediterranean" themed Sangeet! We truly love every bit of this event, at the same time that we are impressed by all the details that surround it! And we want to make a big shoutout to Kunal Laungani, CEO & Founder, Chapter2Events and to and Meha Bhargava, CEO & Founder, Styl.Inc for totally nailing the theme that our lovebirds were looking to have on this Sangeet ceremony. It is not easy to mix two different cultures in one event, but Kunal Laungani and Meha Bhargava -along with their teams- made it look so easy! Without any question, they were major contributors to take this Sangeet ceremony to the next level! And this fantastic event would not have been the same, without the beautiful floral arrangements and decor that Wedding by SS crafted for this evening, so a big shoutout to them! The mix of cultures and the pink and indigo hues set the mood for this unforgettable Sangeet ceremony! Both our lovebirds completely embraced the overall theme of the evening and looked flawless!
