Seattle, WA Indian Wedding by Jerome Tso Photography

Happy Wednesday, Maharanis! If you were looking for colorful and inspirational ideas, you don't have to look anymore! Sonu & Akhil's two-day wedding celebration will give all you are looking for and a bit more! So, get your notebook and get yourself ready to enjoy this celebration of love! For this first installment, we will be joining our lovely couple in a beautiful photoshoot leading to a Sangeet ceremony. This sweet and fun-loving photoshoot carried out by the talented crew from Jerome Tso Photography captured the most lovely moments of this couple before having fun at the vibrant and colorful Sangeet ceremony held at the W Hotel Seattle. Whether if it is at an outdoor location surrounded by nature or at the halls of an exclusive and contemporary venue, the love of this young couple steals the scene! After the photoshoot was over, Sonu & Akhil were ready to move on with the Sangeet Ceremony! And my God, it was beautiful! This pre-wedding event caught our attention since the moment we took a glance at it! The incredible decoration that Universal Decor put together for this event, combined with the vivid and multicolored floral arrangements that Nalini's Flowers and Decor created for this ceremony, is fantastic! We were captivated and surprised by some much color and joy surrounding this event that we still can't get over it! If you want to take a closer look at this Sangeet Ceremony, head into our gallery for more!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Nowadays, online dating is the way most people meet. But, that’s not how we met. We took the more traditional route...paper dating (aka biodatas). His biodata was sent through a family friend. Little did I know, this would be the beginning of our love story. We slowly got to know each other via text and FaceTime, which our first FaceTime session lasted 6 hours! He was easy to talk to and we surprisingly had a lot in common (down to carrot cake being our favorite!). It was then, I knew he was a keeper! 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My groom, been born and raised on an island, we knew our engagement would take place at his home island, Saint Croix. Only after a short 6 months, we fell in love and took the dive into getting engaged. My entire family flew down to the US Virgin Islands to celebrate our engagement. Everyone knew about his proposal plans...except for me, of course. All this time, I thought the engagement ceremony would be his proposal. I was wrong. He proposed in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, next to Buck Island. With only crystal clear water surrounding us, he got down on one knee. He was smart...even if I had said “no”, I would have nowhere to go. Lucky for him, I said “yes”. 
 
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.
Our wedding took place in Seattle, WA. And lucky for me, my husband and I did everything together. Venue hunting was probably the most difficult task during the wedding planning process. A lot of the vendors we chose were recommendations from family and friends. Also, social media played a huge part in vendor hunting. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I’m thankful for my mom, she spent hours around Mumbai shopping for my bridal clothing. That also included being woken up at 2-3am for 2 weeks to pick out clothes through WhatsApp video. I knew I wanted to wear something traditional for the wedding (red and white). And for my Sangeet, my husband and I decided to wear similar colors and that worked out perfectly. And for my reception, I wanted to wear something more western so I went with a formal gown. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
One of the best parts about wedding planning was definitely all the hours we put into dance practice for the Sangeet. This brought all the immediate and extended family together to be part of the planning process and it was absolute joy! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We were so happy that everyone loved everything the vendors provided eg. the decorations, food, music, our photographer/videographer, and florist. We had a lot of family flying in from all over the country and even from India. Everyone had a blast during our Sangeet, as in literally everyone was on the dance floor for hours! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I walked down the aisle to the mandap was my special moment. Seeing my future husband standing there waiting for me, all teary-eyed, made everything worth 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.
We absolutely loved our decor for Sangeet and the reception. For the Sangeet, we went more towards Rajasthani style. Very vibrant colors, colorful camels as centerpieces on the tables, bright draping and beautiful Rajasthani umbrellas all around (the best part). For the reception, we went more fancy with blush pink draping and beautiful white flowers with gold columns. We had a dance floor for both Sangeet and Reception, and of course dhol players are a must! We had our special first dance with a fog machine. All the kiddos enjoyed the glow sticks during the dance party at the reception. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I would say, just take your time and relax. The best advice I received during my planning process is that if anything goes wrong, your guests will never know. They won’t know what’s supposed to happen and what’s not. Keep that in mind the day of the wedding, because it definitely isn’t worth the stress. Delegating tasks as much as you can on the day of is super important. You can’t be everywhere so use your bridesmaids, family members, friends, etc. they’re to help! Also, truly enjoy yourself at your wedding, it’s YOUR big day. Lastly, sleep, sleep, sleep! 
 
 

There are still more details coming down the road, so stay close for more!

This same photographic studio brings us today a romantic outdoor photoshoot that we are sure you are going to love. So, get ready to enjoy it!

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.

Dallas, TX Indian Fusion Wedding by Steve Koo Photography

Hello, beautiful ladies! We are back with more insights into Simer & Andres' wedding celebration. Just as we saw in the previous entry, this second installment starts with a romantic outdoor photoshoot that was captured thanks to the lens of Steve Koo Photography! And is just that having this beautiful couple in their elegant wedding attires, just a few minutes away from going to the ceremony that will unite their lives forever, who would not want to perpetuate this special moment? After this romantic and intimate photoshoot, it was time to head into the gardens of the Nasher Sculpture Center to start with the wedding ceremony that will mark the beginning of a lifetime of marriage for this lovely young couple. This ceremony was like a dream come true! The fantastic floral arrangements that Prashe created for this outdoor event, provided the perfect setting for this life-changing event! And we know that it is every bride's dream of looking like a princess on her big day, but this time, Simer exceeded all expectations and ended up looking like a complete queen after being glamorized by Jenny Torry Artistry. The beauty and romance that surrounded this event got us shedding a couple of tears of joy, and we cannot stop feeling so happy that Simer & Andres found each other! In the words of Simer: "Who better than your best friend, to be THE ONE". If you cannot get enough of this wedding ceremony, head into our gallery for more!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Andres and I met in medical school under the romantic background of coffee and anatomy. As we got to know each other I realized he was becoming my best friend and who better to be “the one” than that.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were in Galveston, Texas visiting his brother. We had planned to go on a morning run along the beach, which I tried to get out of because it was chilly outside. Eventually, he convinced me to go and along the way, there was a cardboard box with a puppy inside. On the puppy’s collar was a note saying his name was Ollie and the guy behind me had a question to ask. I turned around and there was Andres on one knee!
 
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.
Our first decision we made was to get a wedding planner because we were about to move to Chicago to start our residencies and knew planning a wedding in Dallas across the country would be hard. We met Meredith through a recommendation from a friend and everything after that was honestly pretty much easy! She got to know us and was able to make really personalized recommendations that fit our idea perfectly.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I entrusted that to my sister who was in India at the time. I knew I wanted traditional red for my Indian lengha and she designed the rest. It turned out perfectly. For my traditional American wedding dress me and my went dressing shopping alone after I had almost quit searching for one. Once I tried on the one we both knew instantly and got it on the spot.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Cake tasting, it was a dream come true for a sweet tooth like me. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think I everyone loved how we mixed our cultures throughout the night. Especially the mixes in music that our DJ, Dominic, played. It kept the dance floor packed the whole night.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Standing at the altar about half through our vows, church bells from a church across the street started playing and gave me goosebumps during an already priceless 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.
We did a lady sangeet at my parents' house the night before the wedding. It was as our way of showcasing as much of the vibrancy of Indian Wedding traditions into one night for us. The wedding reception we blended ou Mexican and Indian cultures through food and music. We had elotes during dinner, churros, chai, and kulfi for dessert. The music had mixed Latin songs with a dhol player playing. 
 
Join us at the upcoming wedding reception, we are sure that you are going to love it!
