Florham Park, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Hi Maharanis! It's Wednesday and to pay tribute to another couple's video, Lightyear Studio tells the story of Kinjal & Shilp's wedding day with a heartfelt cinematic production of selected highlights you will adore. This same-day edit film is spectacular with its aerial shots, pre-wedding events, and lively baraat scenes. Aashirwad Palace offered a unique location for the couple to celebrate a super fun Sangeet that was just the prelude to their wedding day. This dance festival was just the perfect way to inaugurate and officially welcome all their loved ones to their wedding festivities. Early spring days can be chilly, but they can also be one of the most beautiful times of the year. I'm glad these two opted for this lovely season to tied the knot as their big day was just as delightful as a summer day! They ensured all guests stayed cozy as they warmed up the temperature, dancing all the way to the doorsteps of the Brooklake Country Club & Events. The ceremony was backdropped by the rolling green hills and pristine waters of this splendid outdoor space. It was also framed by an adorable open mandap structure that featured bright color flowers that contrasted just perfectly with the silvery sky. Heaters provided warmth for the couple and guests during the many Hindu wedding rituals. In the meantime, their large bridesmaids and groomsmen squad dressed up in deep sky blue ensembles formed a large procession that escorted the newlyweds into their new life. How beautiful! Kinjal looked like the ultimate Maharani in a red cherry bridal lehenga she cleverly combined with a long gold dupatta, and Raja Shilp donned a mint and gold sherwani suit that turned him into a dashing prince. Such a stylish couple! There is no other better way than departing from the ceremony in a luxury car, which is precisely what the new husband and wife did. They added a touch of luxe to their goodbye moment, riding a beautiful red Lamborghini into their happily ever after. Loving these wedding ideas? Get inspired by this film only hit the play button and make them a reality on your wedding day.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were walking past each other and I tripped. He caught me at the perfect time and we landed in a dip. Time slowed down and the music started serenading. We knew it was love at first sight.

Just kidding! We met the traditional way...on a dating app! After a few dates and a lot of pizza, I knew he was the one when he could out-quote The Office to me. (But he knew sooner!)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Since we started dating, we had been dreaming about a trip to Ireland together. I had been obsessing over Ireland since my last 3 trips and had wanted to show Shilp the magic. We took an epic trip with our 4 friends driving around the countryside, stopping by tiny pubs and ended at the Cliffs of Moher overlooking the castle on the hill. In that moment, Shilp made my favorite spot in the world even more special by getting down 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.
To be honest, we credit Dr Rina Desai, my mom, for planning and re-planning our wedding once it was rescheduled because of Covid! Both our families really chipped in and made this as stress-free as possible. We knew we wanted old-school maharani-style wedding outfits and an organic/rustic, simple feel for the decor. Nirali made our decor vision come to life! Brooklake Country Club and all of the people who work there made it extraordinarily easy to put this together. Rita Suthar my make-up artist (who I've known for 15 years), read my mind for my makeup/hair styling. DJ Gaurav played phenomenal sets that make even dance-challenged people get out on the dance floor. Nathan and his team at Lightyear Studio captured every bit of magic that weekend. This wedding was thanks to our family and all of these people! We know how much they worked to bring this dream to life!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted an all red wedding lengha. I went wedding dress shopping with my parents, Shilp and his parents, to try on different fabrics and lengha styles. I landed on a bright red, velvet style based on the richness of the look and the depth of the color. My mom then went to India to for all my wedding outfit shopping as I was unable to go myself.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Since we were forced to scale the event down, the guests who attended were our closest family and friends. We were able to have one on one time with our guests dancing, eating, taking pictures. I think our guests enjoyed the ease and the personal touch we were able to have at each event. Great food and drinks always helps!!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look was one of our most special moments. When we saw each other for the first time we both just burst out laughing, so happy and excited at the same time, followed by a big warm embrace. We took a breath to fully take in the moment and realize we had made it. We will never forget that.

I also shared a moment with my dad earlier in the morning when he saw me for the first time in my bridal outfit. It was full of emotion and so incredibly special.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The planning can be long and stressful no matter what size or style of wedding you are having. The one most important piece of advice from us to you is to enjoy the day (or days!). Enjoy the small moments with your family and friends, be present, laugh, take a picture in that photobooth, cheers with your signature cocktail, tear it up on the dance floor (even if your hair gets ruined). The time goes by so fast and the most cherished memories we have are from the times we spent together with our family and friends. Also unlike us, don't forget to eat something more than dessert at the reception!

I'm so happy you could join us and relived Kinjal & Shilp's special day! Thank you so much. Hope to see you tomorrow.

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!
