Dubai, United Arab Emirates Indian Fusion Wedding by The Wedding Story

Welcome back, ladies! We are happy you could join Priyanka & Jasjit at their wedding ceremonies. A couple's big day calls for nothing but perfection, and we are deeply impressed by how Priyanka & Jasjit's wedding ceremonies were not just perfect, but they seemed like a dream come true! The mesmerizing gardens of the Waldorf Astoria Palm held the two ceremonies that honored both of their vibrant cultures, faiths and above all, their love for each other! And it is thanks to the remarkable talent of The Wedding Story that we get to take a peek to both the traditional and solemn Sikh and Hindu ceremonies. With the ocean and the sunset as the background, and with the lovely design and floral arrangements that Vivaah Weddings put together for these ceremonies, there is no denying that this was the perfect scenario for Priyanka & Jasjit to tie the know in front of their family and friends. The grandeur of the occasion was reflected in the couple´s breathtaking looks that were echoed in Priyanka's delicate and stylish lehenga designed by Brides of Sabyasachi and in Jasjit's elegant Sherwani. And we are loving every bit of this marvelous and fashionable look! If you want to relieve all the magic and emotions of this event, make sure to visit today's gallery. You are going to love it!

Ontario, CA Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Welcome back, Maharanis! We are looking forward to sharing with you the wedding ceremony of Purvi & Vishal. This is a ceremony that will blow your inspiration and creativity away. We love the impeccable decor that was selected for this traditional and solemn ceremony! Although, both the photo shoot and the ceremony took place at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Ontario Airport, it seems that both events took place at different venues due to the vibrant and versatile decor that B Unique & Elegant managed to create for the different events that suround this wedding celebration. Simply amazing! But there was nothing more beautiful than our lovely Purvi! The dreamy makeup and the delicate and classic hairstyle created by Dolled up by Lulu was a perfect combination to enhance her natural beauty as she walked down the aisle wearing her stunning ruby lengha with golden accents. This time, our lovely couple wanted to take the elegance of this ceremony to the next level, and they decided to bring  Bridal By Nisha on board, in order to glamorize their family members as well. And what a great decision it was, as all the scenes that were captured by the lens of Peter Nguyen Studio look like if they were taken out from a fairy tale! Definitely, this is a ceremony that will amaze everyone, so don't forget to visit our gallery, if you want to take a closer look at this dazzling event!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were introduced to each other by his sister. He got my phone number and we talked for 7 hours that night. The next day he booked a flight out to meet me and from that connection from our first date, we knew it was meant to be. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Vishal told me he was on call at the hospital so I would not call him and my best friend, Tamanna, told me she needed girl time so she wanted to hang out with me and do brunch in the morning. Vishal then took a late night flight out to California and spent the night at a hotel in Orange County. In the morning, he bought flowers and laid them out in the shape of a heart on Crystal Cove beach. My friend then took me to the brunch spot on the beach and I see Vishal out of the corner of my eye next to big heart shaped flower petals on the sand. I immediately curse him out and walk towards him. He asks me to marry him. My parents and other friend are on the side videotaping everything.
 
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.
My best friend, Tamanna, helped a lot throughout the process. She is very organized and made me excel spreadsheets to help guide me through the process. 
 
The Venue has never done a full on indian wedding and they kept changing things they said they would do originally. Would not recommend Doubletree Ontario.
 
Hair and Makeup: LuLu was great and very professional, she was always on time and does great work
 
Outfits: I loved all my outfits, they were all from India and my foi helped do last minute alterations
 
Decor: This took the most amount of time, I spent a lot of time picking colors and centerpieces. Everything turned out well.
 
DJ: Krish from FusionSounds was amazing and did an amazing job with lighting, dhol, and DJ. He played all the music my husband loved. I would recommend him to everyone. 
 
Food: Mantra catered garba and reception, Sumit is very professional and gave great food and service. Swaminarayan mandir did the wedding, the food was good but they increased their price last minute during the event without letting us know.
 
Photography: would not recommend Peter Nguyen. His team was great, but he himself gets distracted very easily and you have to actively tell him what photos to take. He did not get any pictures of the food and during the events instead of taking photos, he was wandering around. His team members though are very focused and captured the best photos. He also promised to give us our video by March 27 and documentary edit by May 4 and still have not received anything.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went shopping in India and had my foi and cousins help me. We went to several shops and I had red in my mind. It was very hard to shop in India, but I ended up falling in love with a red wine colored lehenga. As soon as my cousins saw it on me, they instantly said this was the one. It did take a couple days to find it and I almost settled on another one. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Spending time with family for the different parts of the process. I got to spend lots of time with my cousins from India, who I rarely get to see because they are so far away. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the entertainment at the reception and the food from Mantra during garba and reception.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance, we recreated the Hero No. 1 song Sona kitna Sona and had the original music video playing on the projector.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Pick the better vendors with the better reviews.
 
Are you loving this celebration of love? We know you do! Don't miss the unveiling of the wedding reception in our next post!

Hello, darlings! We hope that you have enjoyed this journey as much as we have. This time we are here to share with you the elegant and captivating reception of Nancy & Raj that was hosted on the fascinating and ravishing ballroom of the Luciens Manor. This wedding reception was like no other! The dim lights, the elegant and stylish chandeliers, the beautiful placement of all the ornaments and the smokey ambiance, created the most epic and memorable scenario for our lovely couple to have their first dance as husband and wife. The exceptional DJ from Illusion DJs played the most beautiful melody to set the mood for this dance and contributed to making this moment forever be recalled on the memory of all the once witnessing that magical moment. The night was marked by the dances and the great atmosphere that was lived during the whole evening, and that thanks to the outstanding work of A&R Photography we get to experience those emotions by taking a look at mesmerizing photos of this reception. Although we are getting closer to the end of this event, Nancy & Raj's journey has just begun, and by perusing the gallery we can tell that this is going to be an everlasting love story.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through a mutual friend and started dating in 2013.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Andrew My husband picked me up from the station after work and was taking me home to have dinner with my parents. When we pulled up to the house, the whole garden was lit up with lights, candles and roses. Andrew got down on one knee and proposed and told me he is taking me to New York the next day. 

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.
I always wanted a destination wedding and it was my dads dream that I got married in his place of birth Uganda. We were very lucky that a good family friend of ours Sudhir Ruparelia owned a beautiful report in Kampala called Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort. Both mine and Andrews family travelled to Uganda to see the venue and start planning the wedding in May 2017. As soon as we got there we loved the resort and knew we wanted to get married there. Sheena Ruparelia, the daughter of Sudhir Ruparelia had experience in planning hers and her sister wedding at the resort and took the role of our wedding planner. We worked with her for most of the year on themes, entertainments, décor, food and drinks. Having a wedding in Uganda meant that anything was possible, we made sure each event had a different theme and Sheena and her team pulled out all the stops for each event. We did take a few suppliers from the UK which included our DJ Ravi Dattani part of RV sounds who had the party going every day, My make up artist - Sophia Aafreen would did an amazing job on not only my hair an make up but also my mum and sisters, and we had brilliant live singers come in from Kenya - Sodhi and team. Cake was done by Mira Marsani based in Uganda. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
The easiest part of the wedding planning was actually my outfits, my talented sister Sona Jivraj, owner and designer of Sonas Haute Couture created all 7 of my outfits along with Andrews clothes, and all our immediate family clothes. Sona has been in the business for over 10 years and has an amazing eye for what is in fashion and what suits every individual. She listened to all the ideas I had and made each outfit to perfection, her quality and design is definitely top of the range. Sonas clothes were complimented by Red dot jewels Jewellery, Tarun Thalani Jewellery and Amrapali Jewellery.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved planning the theme and décor for each event, as I mentioned there was not limit to what could be done in Uganda and the Ruparelia team made it all possible. I was able to be very creative with each event and make them all very unique. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they loved everything, the resort, the weather, the food and of course spending a week with family and friends. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I would say when all the guests started arriving, we had African drummers playing as all guest started arriving from all over the world. It was so nice to see everyone and the excitement on their faces. 

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 7 events which were all very different:
1 - welcome party which was an African themed party, we had Africans drummers, singers and dancers, traditional African food and amazing African  décor.
2 - Pithi - traditional pithi ceremony beautifully decorated with pink and orange colours
3- Sangeet -rajasthani theme event which an mind blowing set, I came in on a dholi which all my brothers were carrying, we had various dances and speechs at this event and Sodhi the singer from Kenya. 
4 - indian wedding - set by lake Victoria, with a red rose mandup. The ceremony was not a traditional indian wedding and was carried out by my cousin Sawan Gandesha, it was personal, meaningful and entertaining. 
5 - pool party - this was a Ibiza themed pool party. everyone was wearing white , Andrew and I came in on a boat. We had massage ladies, a live band and music on till early ours in the morning.
6 - civil ceremony - this was in a stunning location in the resort over looking the lake.
7 - reception - this was by the pool, it was decorated with white roses, candles and was a very romantic setting. we had a lovely fire work display, speeches, and a great DJ playing till early hours in the morning 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Have a destination wedding 

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Happy to send you pictures which will speak a 1000 words.

 

See you tomorrow dolls!
