Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Welcome back, ladies! This wedding celebration was like a dream come true to Charu & Manan as they loved and enjoyed every bit of their wedding! But if there was a part of this wedding that they particularly enjoyed, that must have been their incredible reception party! This joyful and vibrant event that was hosted at The Marigold was simply amazing! And we want to make a special shoutout to Rose Events LLC for the incredible planning and also to Elegant Affair for the outstanding decoration that was created for this gala. Both of these vendors were major contributors to make this event memorable and to take it to the next level! Everyone had a great time while dancing to the best Bollywood hits played by DJ Sunny Entertainment, and you can tell that this was a great party as the only time the guests stopped dancing was to take a bite to the delicious plates that Moghul Caterers prepared for this reception party! Without any doubt, this was a night to remember! And thanks to the incredible shots captured by the talented folks at Lightyear Studio we get to take a peek at the insights of this gala, jut as if we were there! If you don't want to miss any detail of this outstanding reception party, head into our gallery for more, you will not regret it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband at the Olive Branch in New Brunswick at Rutgers Campus. We were both there with a group of friends and just happened to start chatting at the bar and never stopped talking from that day on. He wined and dined me and after the first official date, I remember calling up my best friend/maid of honor and telling her, "I think he's the one! I'm going to marry that guy." Something about him just stuck and I always wanted to be around him or talking to him and luckily it all worked out for the best!
 
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 husband and I both have experience in the wedding industry, him a bit more than me, so we sort of had the big things planned in our head before even putting pen to paper. We knew exactly which caterer, decorator, DJ, event planner, and photographer we wanted. We started with those and kept adding on from there. We ended up choosing the first venue that we looked at, which was the Marigold. We got married right at the beginning of wedding season on March 30, so all of the vendors were available and we locked everything in. 
 
Picking a hair and makeup artist is super important because you want to look and feel your best on your wedding day. I had only two trials and ended up picking my artist, Anu Sarin, right after the trial was done. It's important to work with someone who listens to what you want, makes changes based on how you feel in the look, and someone you trust. She and I got along from the beginning and she was very easy to work with which made me feel comfortable.
 
I knew that I wanted a beautiful, elegant, and romantic wedding theme, with light colors and whites and light pinks and candles. That's all I said when I went to the Elegant Affairs meeting, and they turned my vision into a reality. We had beautiful cherry blossom centerpieces, a bamboo mandap with white and light pink roses with greenery and a stunning flower wall. We had candelabras and hanging orbs and lots of candles. It was right out of a fairytale!
 
Picking the right DJ is extremely important because if your guests will remember anything from your wedding, its the food and the music! We went with DJ Sunny Entertainment and they KILLED it. From the Sangeet to the wedding reception, people were on the dance floor the entire night. It didn't even clear out for dinner. They helped us design our custom dance floor, our huge video wall, the sparklers and the fog clouds for our first dance. The emcee was high energy and kept the vibe going all night.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I got my wedding dress in Bombay and I had taken out a bunch of dresses to try on. I knew I wanted to wear a full red lehenga and green jewelry to contrast with it. I put on a few dresses but none of them had that wow factor. Then I put one dress on (the one I ended up with) and thought oh this one is beautiful and it's sparkling and it put a smile on my face right away. I still wanted to see other ones because I didn't want to miss anything, so we put it on the side. After seeing a few more I tried on my dress again and another woman walked by showing interest in it and pointing at it like she wanted to buy it. At that moment I told my mom to pack it up, this is the one! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests are still complimenting the food from the whole wedding week. We had Moghul Caterers and they did such a fabulous job. We have heard nothing but good things! We didn't want to repeat any items and tried to make sure our guests had food they haven't had before since Moghul is so popular. They worked with us to customize our menu and it worked out awesome.
 
Another thing people loved was the live music we had during the cocktail hour. Philadelphia String Quartet played upbeat music during the cocktail hour, played on the dance floor as people found their seats, and then played violins over our first dance song as we slow danced. It was definitely one of the highlights and everyone loved it!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first dance was really perfect. We had a whole choreographed dance that we practiced but when we got on the dance floor, we ended up forgetting all of it and forgoing the choreography. We just started dancing. We added in a few special touches and spins we remembered from the choreography but the rest of it was just pure happiness and enjoying the moment. 
 
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.
I did a lot of DIY things for the wedding. For example, we had hotel bags custom made in India, I had popcorn boxes with the hindu ceremony program on the sides of the boxes, I designed the menu cards for the reception, custom cocktail napkins, bar signs, the signs for the food stations at the sangeet, etc. I tried to be creative, while not going completely overboard. Everything ended up coming together beautifully and all of the hard work was definitely worth it. Luckily my wonderful and super helpful family sat there and helped me assemble everything on all of the weekends leading up to the wedding! That family time ended up being the most enjoyable part of the wedding planning process! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I personally put the planning aside one week before my first wedding event. I HIGHLY recommend every bride do this, just so you can thoroughly be present in the moment and truly enjoy your wedding week. I was confident that I had all of the top vendors in the state working at my wedding and I left it to them to see my vision through, and they really did just that and put on the perfect wedding. Every bride needs to just be in the moment and enjoy it because that week flew by and I would do anything to relive it. Things can go wrong and it won't always be perfect, but no one will notice except you! Don't pay mind to the little things and just fully enjoy being with your family, friends, and loved ones because that week is all about YOU and everyone is there to celebrate YOU (and your hubby)!

Key Largo, FL Indian Fusion Wedding by Linett Teresa Photography

Welcome back, Maharanis! We are happy you could join us at Zahra & Bhavishyat's wedding ceremonies! That's right, these love birds didn't just have one wedding ceremony, they were so lucky that they had two! And thanks to the remarkable talent of Linett Teresa Photography, we are able to enjoy every intimate and captivating moment of these amazing and memorable celebrations. The alluring and natural environment that surrounded the Historic Shadow Point was the perfect scenario for the two ceremonies that marked the start of an everlasting love story. The day started with a Nikha Ceremony to pay tribute to Zahra's background and culture, followed by an evening Kalyanam Ceremony to honor Bhavishyat's culture. These memorable and solemn ceremonies were splendidly planned by the talented crew from Amina Events and they were beautifully set by the unique and on point decoration done by Linens & More Florida Keys. The delicate color selection and the detailed placement of all the ornaments created a relaxing and magical atmosphere that everyone loved! And if you were thinking that this breathtaking scenario was already perfect on its own, that is because you are yet to see the astonishing look on our gorgeous Zahra. She looked ravishing on both ceremonies, and we want to make a special shout out to Medusa's Mane Hair & Makeup for the dreamy look that was created for our gorgeous Maharani, as they praised her natural beauty and made her look like a princess! We are loving every bit of these ceremonies as every small detail contributed to making this event not just classy, but exquisite. If you can't get enough of these wedding ceremonies, head into our gallery for more, you will not regret it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Bhavishyat (Bhavi) through colleagues at work. The connection was very natural like we knew each other from forever. It was my birthday weekend, that he planned a trip to Chattanooga, TN where I realized it had to be him. His loving, affectionate and caring nature made me realize all that I wanted in my Mr. Right, was in him.  
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were getting ready for a dinner date, he made sure I was in the room as pest control were doing a treatment at home (at least that is what he said). Ready for our dinner outing I stepped outside to flowers showering and Bhavi on his knees.  
 
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.
Well, we are from different faiths and were planning a small but fun wedding party with family and friends on a beach in Florida, that helped us celebrate the best of both cultures with people who mattered the most. 
It was a real challenge, in fact, I feel we couldn't have done another exercise to know each other and our families soo well. From choosing a location in Key Largo to the venue Historic Shadow Point to getting Anita Amin #AminaEvents to help us coordinate our wedding weekend. To choosing LinettePhotography as our wedding photographer to getting Hair, Makeup and Henna artists in Key Largo. To finding food options that go well for all. To the 2 priests to solemn up man and wife according to Hindu and Muslim traditions. It was a real experience. But the happy faces and the fact that we will be together forever made it all worth it.  
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for wedding shopping, I wanted a non-traditional color Lehenga for Nikaah. So dark blue and pastel green was an option we choose. For Kalyanum my mother in law felt pink would suit me well so it was a pink and gold and white and pink saree combination. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
We planned all the details of D day, it was exactly the way we wanted. A mixture of cultures with a lot of fun. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Venue and cocktail party
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Fun times with family and friends
 
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.
Haldi and Mehndi in the open, with mangal snanum at sunset.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Dont stress the small stuff, no one remembers the color of your mandup or dress or the food. You got to enjoy D day. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
All local talent, cheaper.
 
These were lovely ceremonies, but we still have one more stop! Please join us at the upcoming wedding reception, it is an event that you'll love!
