Punta Cana, Dominican Republic Indian Wedding by Amarjot Chana

We are so glad we meet again, beauty queens! The plethora of charm and traditional flair surrounding Preeti & Vijay's big wedding festivities continues, and we still have much more to share with you, so get ready to enjoy! When we mentioned earlier that this wedding was going to get better, we really meant it! Just take a look at the heavenly decor designed by MERCAFLOR, it is fantastic! The soft colored hues on the Mandap, combined with the mesmerizing landscapes, created the perfect backdrop for Preeti & Vijay to join their lives in marriage. There are no words to describe so much beauty! Thankfully Amarjot Chana Photography was present at the Hard Rock Punta Cana to immortalize this life-changing event! And a big shoutout to Firgun Events for the precise orchestration of this event, as it was a grand demonstration of what a dream wedding looks like! We also want to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of our lovely Maharani, who stole the show dressed in a champagne lengha draped and tied by Asopalav India after being glamorized by Makeup by Anita. And we loved the final result! Check more of this lovely ceremony in today's gallery. And if that is not enough, you can glide between the pages our Best of 2019 Magazine for more details!

Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by R.A.G.artistry

Happy Thursday, ladies! Are you ready to start your day filled with traditional flair and inspiring ideas? We bet you are! So get ready to dive into a romantic journey through Ami & Naishik's wedding festivities! We are sure you will love them! For this first installment, we'll be taking a look at a fun-loving Mehndi party that everyone loved. And we are utterly amazed by every single detail surrounding this pre-wedding ceremony planned and designed by our very own Maharani Ami Patel. We loved how she took the lead to ensure that everything will be just as she always imagined it! For the decor, she partnered with Mandap World, who created a lovely setting featuring traditional linens and ornaments. The most anticipated moment of this pre-wedding ceremony happened when Manisha Panjwani showed off al her talent and expertise, outlining a beautiful Mehndi into the arms and feet of our lovely Maharani. But Ami was not the only one who got a Mehndi, Naishik didn't stay behind and got a small design into his forearm as well! Check more of this Sangeet by taking a look at all the fantastic shots captured by R.A.G.artistry in today's gallery. It is the best way to prepare for the wedding ceremony and the closing reception held inside the halls of Loews Atlanta Hotel!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was love as first sight. A July morning in 2011, we both laid eyes on each other across a crowded ballroom at the Loews Atlanta Hotel.
Surprisingly, fate brought us together to be introduced through a mutual friend during a night out on the town. That weekend, we found ourselves totally emerged in each other's stories while we snuck away from all other company to be alone.
In October 2018, we are held our wedding festivities in the same venue where we first met.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to a revolving restaurant in a sky-rise hotel in downtown Atlanta. He had a beautiful bouquet of roses and lilies (my favorite) waiting at the table. After our meal soaring above the Atlanta skyline, we walked around the viewing deck as he told me how much he adored me and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
 
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'm lucky to have such a large and supportive extended family. Everyone decided to do a family reunion in India during my wedding shopping. It felt so festive that the whole family was just as excited as I was for the events and upgrading their wardrobes.
Pinterest really helped me envision how I wanted every last detail of our wedding. Inspiration pictures showed me what I liked and didn't like in a cohesive decor. I wanted a timeless, yet elegant, style throughout my weekend.
Mandap World made many accommodations in order to assemble my exact vision. They helped me capture the perfect pastels for my Garba/Sangeet event, the simply grand decor for the wedding ceremony, and the innovative design for the Mehendi. I never wanted an outdoor wedding due to unpredictability of weather and discomfort of guests. But, my father convinced me that, during an auspicious event like this, what better place to have it than at God's doorsteps. So, we crossed our fingers and kept it outside. We were blessed with the most perfect weather that entire weekend.
  
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I have loved Shyamal & Bhumika and Sabyasachi styles for a long time. I wanted it to look royal - like a true maharani. The image I envisioned in my head was to be in an all ruby red dress dripping with gold accents and jewelry.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My favorite part was the decor planning. I am very creative and artistic. Therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed planning the decor details and color themes the most. It gave me a chance to let my creative juices flow into events that could be shared and appreciated by so many friends and family.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Guests loved the decor and the simplicity of events. We also made it a point to limit too far extended guests from being invited. This allowed us to connect and celebrate with the guests more informally and personally. Everyone truly felt close during the events.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Not many people have seen my dad cry. He has always had such a tough outer shell with a guarded, yet fun, personality. Ironically, during the events, his soft side was exposed and was so emotional. All the guests were teary, and shocked. As for me, my father and I have a soft spot for each other - after all, I am a daddy's girl.
 
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.
First dance song, "Breathless" by Shayne Ward - It was a sentimental choice; he sent it to me to tell me how he felt about me during our early years of dating.
Father-daughter dance, "Never Alone" by Lady Antebellum - My father had no idea about this song. But when I had him listen to the words, he immediately broke down saying 'it's perfect'. He's always known the perfect balance of tough love with nurturing love and guidance.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be very organized and don't leave details to the last minute! Also, assign a designated contact person that you trust to deal with specific issues that may arise (ie. transportation of guests, guest check-in at hotel, keeping up with the bar tab for reception, after party food/drinks, etc.). This will allow key family members to be more present and personable during the events.

 

This is just starting, ladies! More coming in a bit!

Elk Grove Village, IL Indian Fusion Wedding by R.E.M.

Hello, darlings! There is no better way to bring the wedding festivities to an end, than with an elegant and vibrant reception party. And that is exactly what Bansari & Michael did! They threw a fantastic reception party to celebrate their marriage in the company of their family and friends! Held inside the halls of the Holiday Inn Chicago-Elk Grove, this reception is one you are going to love. Once again, JD Event Design managed to amaze us with fantastic decor that matched the beauty surrounding all other events. All the guests had a great time and danced the night away thanks to Dj Mixu that set the mood for this gala with upbeat melodies and the best Bollywood hits. Maharani Bansari looked ravishing on her mint Lengha after being glamorized by Makeup by Sonu Patel. The smokey eyes and the nude lipstick praised her natural beauty and made her look like a princess for this gala that closed the wedding festivities! If you want to relive this story, R.E.M. Video & Photography captured fantastic shots that we have compiled in today's gallery. So go check it out!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Late April 2016, Mike and I met at a bar in Michigan, on a Wednesday night! The very first conversation we had with one another, there was an instant spark. As the night went on, we danced, laughed, and talked all night, it felt like we already knew each other for a long time by the end of the night, Especially since stayed up all night talking!  The next day, reality hit - Mike was headed back to New York soon where he was living at the time. We both initially thought the spark would die out considering he lived ~800 miles way. Mike left after that weekend, and  I came up my several reasons why it probably won’t work, “He’s not Indian”, “long-distance?”, “It probably won’t work”, “We’re too different” etc. That last till about 2-3 weeks until the next time we saw each other again. As mike got out of his car and ran up to hug me, my heart skip a beat and I knew there was something stronger there. Shortly after, Mike relocated to back home to Michigan, over time we became best friends, each other’s support system, and sometimes each other's worst enemies. From all the ups and downs, one thing we both knew for certain was that we wanted to spend our lives together. That is the story of how it all began, and well, the rest is history!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Location: Mackinac Island, MI
Date: 05.27.2018
 
Memorial day 2018, Michael & I took a family vacation to Mackinac Island. Our second day at Mackinac Island, we decided to bike the 8-mile outer trail around the island, with breathtaking scenery and views. We stopped at several spots such as the arch rock to take pictures, but one spot, in particular, was the most special moment of our lives. At about 5 mile mark into our bike trail, we stopped at a gorgeous spot overlooking Lake Michigan and the mackinaw bridge. As we posed to take a picture, Michael whispered “I love you”, followed by the most magical proposal. He of course planned for a photographer (family photographer so it remained a definite surprise for me) to be there so our special moment could be captured!
 
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.
All the vendors I worked with made the wedding stress and planning so much better!
Decor: I worked with JD Event Designs for my decor, Josh went above and beyond in ensuring my day was perfect.
Makeup: I worked with Sonu Patel for my makeup for all the events - she truly listens and caters to her brides, In my search, I came across makeup artists who were more focused on their 'brand' in getting their bride ready vs. truly listening to what the bride wants. Sonu is a sweetheart and she was an absolute pleasure to work with!
Henna: II worked with Henna Moments for my bridal henna - Sheetal truly made the vision of my bridal henna come to reality. She is amazing at her work! There is a back story to me selecting Jasmine & Aladdin characters in my Henna: Growing up Princess Jasmine was Mike's favorite princess, the day we first met he joked and said 'I think I found my princess Jasmine in real life', and that stuck to me! I am so grateful she was able to get my perfect design down for our wedding day!
DJ: DjMixu - he was amazing, there wasn't a moment when the dance floor was empty. He kept the party going all night!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always envisioned myself in a dark maroon wedding dress, I was never inclined to the idea of traditional red wedding dress. This changed the minute I tried on a red vs. maroon wedding gown! I had a picture of my ideal wedding dress saved on Pinterest - Asopalav Ahmedabad was able to pull out an almost identical outfit within an hour of the first day of my wedding shopping. The only difference was the red plum color vs. the maroon, but the minute I tried it on, I knew that was my outfit!
 
I did not have a vision for my reception outfit, I had to look more to find the style I liked. Surprisingly enough, I was able to find an outfit that had the modern touch to it that I wanted and the color and style made me look princess Jasmine - it matched the overall theme! That's how I knew that one was the one.
All my wedding shopping was done at Asopalav Ahmedabad.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I would say the most enjoyable part for me in the planning process was dress shopping, after years of pinning hypothetical wedding dresses it was very exciting to actually shop for these dresses. I was amazed with how quick and easily I was able to find the outfit I loved!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We did an American Indian Fusion wedding to cater to both our families. Throughout the wedding events, our families were so integrated, the culture difference didn't seem to clash with how perfectly everyone and everything jelled together. I would have to say this was the favorite part for everyone for our wedding.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Absolute special moments for me were the first look before the Hindu Ceremony and his reaction to me walking down the aisle for the first time in the Christian Ceremony. Our first look was more playful, the excitement for seeing each other in the morning whereas the Christian ceremony first look was quite the opposite. He saw me walk down the aisle, it was emotional for the both of us, and watching him tear up made my heart so full!
 
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 went with a more modern look for our Mandap with the drapes and lighter with the reception colors vs. the dark blues that have been more common in the last several years. I was very happy with all the decor work! We loved how involved all our friends and families were in the performances, the American side of our family surprised us with a choreographed dance to Coca-Cola Tu which was amazing!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The key things I would recommend is:
1. Be very detailed oriented in what you want and what you like early on so you are not dealing with the stress later on.
2. Don't get hung up on minor details, trust me, I did that and I learned the only person who notices little things that may be off is you! To others, everything will look perfect, so try to relax and just have fun!
3. Make the time to eat during all your events, 1. the food is going to be amazing and you don't want to miss it, and 2. you will get cranky the hungrier you get! Have a designated person make sure you get the chance to eat!
 
Finally, don't forget to have fun! Stress less and have more fun!

 

We hope you have enjoyed this fusion wedding as much as we did! Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more.
