Ypsilanti, MI Indian Wedding by Joseph Kang Photography

Good morning my beautiful ladies! A new week has just begun, and I am as excited as always to give you some much-needed inspiration to have a fantastic day. Today's protagonists are the sweet Aarthee & Vivek, a lovely couple head-over-heels with each other. The lovebirds had an unbelievable wedding that absolutely blew me away! Utsav Planners,Inc. truly outdid themselves with this one. Not only was their planning impeccable, but the decor and splendid bouquets they designed were stunning. This and the charming venue at Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest brought our couple's vision to life. Not only did our couple have a blast, but their guests did, too, thanks to the ambiance Dj Naveen Productions and Event Lighting created. What a joyful moment for all! Ladies, let me tell you about our gorgeous Aarthee. She looked as magnificent as you can imagine. Our Maharani took everyone's breath away, including mine! From the ideal accessories to her flawless attires and the delicate mehndi Henna Beauty By Krupa did for her. And her soulmate, Vivek, didn't miss a beat. His luxurious yet traditional clothing was perfect! Together, they remind me of my favorite romantic movies, with a promise of forever and a hint of sweetness that only the purest of hearts can manage. Trust me, Maharanis, when you see the pictures Joseph Kang Photography captured of these two, you'll feel all the adoration and love between them. So, be my guests and boost your imagination with this marvelous gallery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him my freshmen year at the University of Michigan at a house party with mutual friends. I knew he was the one-two weeks in because he laughed at all my jokes but was always all too ready to give me a reality check when my head got too big. Also when I realized he takes shots for breakfast.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He proposed on his birthday because it was the only day I wouldn’t suspect a proposal. He took me to Arlington Race Track and all our friends and family surprised us there. Until he got down on one knee, I thought he was still making a super extra birthday speech at a cake-cutting ceremony.

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.
We got engaged in 2017 with a 2020 wedding date that got pushed to 2021 due to COVID but we still were able to have all our closest friends and small there. Our wedding was planned by Utsav Planners and they were able to bring life to all our dreams and visions for the wedding. My hair artist Aysha Riaz and makeup artist Jahura Hobby KILLED it and made me look and feel better than I could have ever imagined. I had six outfits and had to change halfway through the wedding ceremony because we did a North Indian and South Indian ceremony. We started with a Mehndi Saturday morning that was a Michigan tailgate theme to honor where we met so there were tailgate games like corn hole and flip cup and we had flip cup contests between the parents.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India and was actually looking for a white lehenga but couldn’t find anything I liked. I finally went to a store in Ahmedabad (Aso Palav) and after the 600th dress they brought out, I finally found a blush pink and lavender lehenga that I knew was the one.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Most enjoyable part was writing individual notes for every single one of our guests that we used as part of the reception table cards. We were able to show everyone how we appreciated them coming and celebrating with us and it my husband and I had a great time roasting some people who may or may not have been expecting it.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they loved the Michigan tailgate mehndi because it was a fun event to kick off the celebrations and it really represented who we were as a couple. I think they also loved the individual notes that we made. They definitely loved all the speeches made my our bridal party and family because it was so light, funny, and roasted me and my husband. And lastly, I would think they loved that everything somehow happened on time and without any glitches.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
At the end of our sangeet, we played a song that was really special to me (uff Teri Ada) and me and my husband got on the stage and everyone was dancing on the dance floor. It was when I finally realized I was at my wedding and everyone I loved was in the room celebrating with me.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Keep your bridesmaids close, enjoy the little moments, and don’t forget to take time to eat or drink when you can! This is your event so you can never be late, everyone else is just early :)

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The venue was at the Eagle Crest Marriott in Ypsilanti Michigan which is a beautiful gold course. Mehndi was done by Henna Beauty by Krupa. We didn’t have a cake but did a tiered cake pop structure and did boozy cupcakes which were such a hit.

Alright, Maharanis, I hope you enjoyed this story. Keep coming back for more romances!

Playa del Carmen, MX Muslim Wedding by Pixan Photography

Maharanis! Aleeza & Shane's love story is now live in today's Platinum Guide Blog. You will love it!

photo #330217

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Shane and I were both very reluctant to meet each other! I had just moved to Philadelphia to start my MBA at Wharton and he was incredibly busy as a third-year dental student at Temple University. An aunty, however, had other plans for us. While Shane and I hadn’t met before, this aunty knew both of our parents and shared with them that we should meet given that we both would be in the same city. Our parents were quite persuasive as you can imagine - they kept telling us, “what’s the harm? Worst case scenario, you have a new friend!” While there was plenty of eye rolling and resistance (Shane and I both felt we didn’t need any help from our parents in the dating department), we both acquiesced and met up for dinner. Although we both enjoyed getting to know each other, our student lives took over and we lost touch for a couple of months. At the beginning of the new year, I had this feeling that I needed to get to know him better - I felt it in my bones - we needed to meet again. Of course, as we started to reconnect, Covid hit, but it’s also how I knew Shane was the “one.”

At the beginning of March, before we truly knew what Covid was and what our world would look like during a pandemic, I had returned from a trip with classmates in Europe and fell ill. Despite Shane and I still getting to know each other, he showed up to my door with a care package of soup, granola bars, and gatorade. His dental school had just announced that it was indefinitely shutting down and I was unsure whether Wharton classes would continue for the semester. Shane told me, “I had to see you before I left for Chicago.” In that moment, when I felt my worst, I was struck by how genuine he was - with a simple gesture, you showed me exactly who you were. Just by seeing you, even for five minutes, I felt infinitely better. Maybe it was that glint in your eye or your mischievous smile, but in that moment, I knew it would be impossible to live without you.

Shane moved back to Chicago and I moved back home to Baltimore when both of our schools shut down. The rest of our relationship was virtual - we would FaceTime and Zoom for hours - sometimes 9 hours at a time. We truly got to know each other without any distractions. You know how people say, “When you know, you know?” I always thought that was a myth, but now that I’ve lived it, I know it’s the greatest blessing in the world.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The proposal was a complete surprise! Shane told me that we had to go to Chicago for his friend’s birthday - I didn’t suspect much because his group of friends is really close, and I felt that it wasn’t the craziest thing in the world that everyone was gathering together to meet in the same city. On our way to the airport, I noticed that Shane was unusually quiet - he said that he had a stomach ache. I didn’t suspect anything. When we arrived at his home, we were greeted by his maternal grandparents (who flew in from Connecticut) and his uncle, aunt, and cousin who drove in from Michigan - along with his immediate family of course. Again, I should’ve noticed that his mom’s side of the family were all in town in the middle of a pandemic! I just thought “Hm they’re all so close, they’re probably just visiting!” At one point after dinner, his grandmother even told me, “I’m looking forward to meeting your parents,” and I thought she just misspoke, meaning meeting them at some point in the future.

The next morning, I got ready for the birthday and helped myself to some breakfast. This time, I noticed that Shane’s dad was nervous - he kept offering my snacks, tea, and at one point - even a block of cheese. While I was waiting for Shane to get ready, I looked down at my nails and noticed that they weren’t painted - I decided to paint them. This is when Shane’s dad got really nervous - I had no idea at the time, but this is when he thought that I had figured out the whole plan for the proposal. Shane then came down looking incredibly dapper - we then proceeded to leave for Chicago.

As we got closer to the city, Shane told me that we needed to pick up his friend before the brunch. When we got to his friend’s place, he said his friend wasn’t ready yet, so suggested that we walk around the park, close to the Lake Michigan waterfront. As we started walking, Shane was texting the whole time! I started to get annoyed - it was a little chilly, I had to use the bathroom, and Shane wasn’t even talking to me. Again, little did I know that Shane was coordinating with his friend to take pictures of us for the big moment. We reach the water’s edge, and Shane starts pointing out random things to me - there’s a boat, some buildings, a couple of ducks...all the while, Shane’s positioning me to take pics. Then, all of a sudden, he ripped off his face mask and exclaimed, “We’re not here for Nik’s birthday! We’re here because I want to be in my favorite place in the whole world with my favorite person in the whole world.” Then he went into the proposal - I completely blacked out - I have no idea what he said. All I remember is holding his hands and waiting for him to finish talking so I could say yes!

The surprise proposal was just the beginning - Shane had scheduled a full day of surprises! We then went to his uncle’s condo where his siblings and his friends were waiting for us. After we greeted our friends, Shane surprised me with my sister and her fiance who flew in from Boston! While I was so excited to see my sister, I was a little disappointed that my parents weren’t in town too. After exploring the rooftop and taking pictures, Shane told me I had to go get ready for the next surprise. Shane had scheduled a hair appointment for me (it was his mom’s idea!). I asked him why - he said I needed to wait to see.

After getting my hair blown out, we went back to his parent’s place where all of his family and close family friends were waiting for us. He had planned a surprise engagement party for us! As soon as I walked through the doors - I saw my parents! They had been keeping the proposal a secret from me for months - they were in town all along - we all started to tear up. We had a blast for the rest of the night, dancing the night away and enjoying the time with our friends and family. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect proposal - it was so thoughtful, involving our friends and family, and somehow, was kept a surprise!

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.
We got engaged in April 2021 and we decided that we wanted to get married before the end of the year because we were both finishing up school and needed a weekend that could work for our families - my sister is getting married in June 2022, so we had to be cognizant of visa constraints and travel for our family living abroad. I had gone to Mayakoba with Shane’s family in January and we had fallen in love with the area - it’s romantic and the perfect balance between the jungle and beach. We just felt that it would be a complete escape for our family friends. I had always wanted to do a destination wedding, but we wanted it to be easy for our friends (i.e. direct flights, less than three hours of travel), and affordable for varying budgets. The Fairmont Mayakoba was our dream venue - with both hotel rooms and suites, the hotel could accommodate a wedding of our size (over 400 people) while providing different options for our guests. We also wanted different locations for all three of our events and the Fairmont had extensive experience doing events at their pool area, the beach, and the Isla Lawn. The Fairmont was everything we had dreamed of and more - when we came for our venue visit, they pulled out all the stops - we had the most beautiful food tasting and Patty, the wedding coordinator, made us feel like we were part of the Fairmont family. Anything we asked for, they said they could do! I’m forever grateful to Patty and the entire Fairmont staff for their hard work and amazing attitudes before, during, and after the wedding. Shout out to Rodrigo who took care of all of us during the wedding!

After reserving the venue, I discovered both our wedding planner and DJ on instagram. I wanted a local planner who really understood Mexican culture and was familiar with vendors in Mayakoba. We went with Canteiro Weddings, founded by Gabi Lavor. In addition to wedding planning, her company also does decor, florals, and rentals - with such a large, destination wedding, it was important to us to work with someone who we could trust and could negotiate on our behalf. Gabi’s designs are fresh, modern, and playful - her creativity and eye for beauty in combination with the rest of her team (Ilse and Fabi), made for the perfect match. She understood our vision immediately - we wanted our Meet & Greet to be a fiesta, our Mehndi to be a massive beach party, the vow ceremony to be romantic and peaceful, and the Reception to feel like a magical, secret garden with tropical flair. From lighting, florals, fireworks, TWO horses, lounge areas, and the dance floors - Canteiro Weddings knocked it out of the park!

In addition to the planning and decor, our next priority was the DJ. We knew that 70% of a great wedding is the music, especially given that our families love to dance. After conducting due diligence, we were lucky enough to have Special Occasions provide us with an emcee, DJ, and a dhol player. Ajay, the founder of Special Occasions, flew out from California specifically for our wedding and it wouldn’t have been the same without him - our guests couldn’t stop raving about him. He managed to get everyone on the dance floor while making sure that we stuck to our tight schedule. We decided to have an emcee in addition to a DJ because of the large group of people and the logistics around our multiple events, which I highly recommend (instead of having a random cousin emcee!). If there’s a couple of words of advice that I could give to any future brides: do not skimp on music and Ajay is the best!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Having grown up in the US with roots in Pakistan and India, I took a hybrid approach to my outfit selection. For the Meet & Greet, I was inspired by Mexican culture and decided to wear a floor-length black gown with colorful, floral embroidery, paired with an Indian jewelry set. For the Mehndi, we really leaned into our desi culture - we wanted to remind people of how beautiful our culture is. Given that we were going for a more traditional feel on the beach, I went with a colorful and geometric-inspired lehenga by Sabyasachi. I was drawn to the traditional silhouette but more modern design and colors. For the reception, while I wanted to wear a South Asian outfit, I was looking for something with Western-style embroidery and a non-traditional color. I fell in love with Manish Malhotra’s Kashmiri collection - with delicate, white embroidery and pastel colors, his outfit was exactly what I was looking for. Lastly, I changed into another dress halfway through the reception - for this dress, I wanted to look glamorous, but still be able to dance. I found a beautiful, embroidered gold dress by Jovani, which was a fun contrast to my earlier reception outfit. All of my jewelry was from a close family friend and renowned international designer, Reveti Jewelers.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Shane and I aren’t the most typical couple and our main goal was to make sure our guests had the best weekend of their lives - we wanted everyone to have fun! From the welcome bags (full of candy, Mexican snacks, and other goodies), to our churro cart on the beach, we wanted to create a lot of “moments” for guests to enjoy. Shane and I were truly raised by our villages in Chicago and Baltimore - many of our parents’ friends are like family to us and we wanted them to feel included in all of our events. We are so grateful that they came all the way to Mexico to celebrate with us and it was important to make sure they felt welcomed. Our guests also commented that it felt like Shane and I were already one family - our parents, siblings, and extended family got along so well. In fact, our families had co-planned the entire wedding for months - and people could feel that we were ONE family, which I’m so grateful for. There wasn’t a bride’s side or a groom’s side (except for the dance battle at the mehndi!) - we wanted it to feel like we were all in it together.

One of the ways we did this was by having a vow ceremony - Muslim weddings never have a vow ceremony but we wanted to do things our own way. Shane and I exchanged vows to publicly share our commitment to each other but to also have our guests learn more about our love story. We also asked dear family members to speak and share advice as we embarked on our new chapter as a married couple. For our friends, they got to know our families better and for our families, they were included in our wedding in a novel way.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It’s hard to choose one moment, but there’s one spontaneous thing we did that I will cherish forever. While we were lucky with the weather for most of our events, we experienced torrential downpour at the end of our Meet & Greet event, which we hosted outside at the infinity pool. Frankly, the timing was perfect - just as the event was ending, it started to pour. Our guests started to race for cover under the poolside restaurant. Shane, some friends, and I decided to stay outside in the rain - we just burst out laughing and started to dance. Joe, one of Shane’s family friends, had a brilliant idea - he suggested that we all jump in the pool. Without a second thought, in all of our formal clothes, we stood at the end of the pool and got ready to jump. Our dry guests, at the restaurant, saw what was happening and started to count us down - we all jumped in! Before we knew it, we had 50 other people in the pool with us. Shane even managed to convince our dads to jump in too!

I love the moment because it’s 100% something that Shane and I would do - and it was even better than our friends and family were there with us. It was also a reminder that even with something as “serious” as a wedding, the best moments are the spontaneous ones where you just let your hair down and live in the moment.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I would like to thank my mom and Reem aunty (Shane’s mom) for planning the wedding. They put in months of work to make sure everything was perfect - none of this would’ve been possible without them. They’re the best mothers and have spent more hours on Zoom doing wedding planning than I would ever have had the patience for! I also want to thank our siblings for all of their support during the wedding - Shamil, Samah, Amna, and Will - you are the MVPs and unsung heroes! Thank you to my dad and Sohail uncle (Shane’s dad) for their humor and unique ideas throughout the planning process (and of course their endless love and support). And lastly, thank you to all of our friends and guests who showed up ready to have a GREAT time and made our wedding so special.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband Balpreet and I actually first met through Facebook. Back then Facebook was the main source of social media and the norm of being on the site 24/7. We were both in the middle of our first semester of college and decided to meet up at an event happening nearby. We talked in-person for about 5 minutes but we both left smiling. We haven't stopped talking since!

I don't have an exact time of when I knew my husband was "the one" - I just knew. He became such an important part of my life that I just couldn't not see him in it.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My husband proposed to me in August of 2019! It was actually the day of our rokha, but before the event started he told me to get ready and sent an Uber to my house (which was very far from NYC). We both met around Central Park and walked towards Bethesda Fountain and he got down on one knee and proposed! It was perfect. His brother and sister-in-law were there as well with flowers and he had a photographer ready for an intimate photoshoot after.

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.
Once we were set on a date, we finalized venues immediately. That was our biggest concern. We then sought out after the perfect decorators and DJ within our budgets and had them booked as well. However, we planned on getting married in May of 2020, but the pandemic hit and we had to postpone. Thankfully the second date we chose which was in September of 2020 - things were starting to open up (venues were increasing the amount of people allowed) so it actually worked out. All the venues we had picked for the events were super accommodating and were available for our new date. My hair and makeup artist that I had for all my events actually wasn’t available for the original date so I had to book someone else, but when I found out she was available in September I booked her immediately. Everything fell into place and it was amazing!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I’ve always known that I wanted to wear the traditional deep red to my wedding so I was super excited to go shopping for my wedding outfits in India! The day before my flight was scheduled to depart, all Visas and flights to India were stopped due to the pandemic. It was a huge bummer. It was hard trying to find outfits online in the middle of everything being shutdown.

I was actually scrolling through TikTok when I came across Raghav Designs page - and I remembered I saved one of their videos months ago of a bridal lengha that I fell in love with. I searched for it, found a few more on his page that I liked and sent it to my family in our WhatsApp group. Without telling them which one I absolutely loved, they all chose that exact same one! I contacted them and that was it. It came out perfect.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning became hectic because rules and regulations due to the pandemic kept changing weekly. We weren’t sure how everything would pan out, but in the end it all worked out. I think planning the small details with my husband - such as party favors, songs that needed to be played, and helping him choose his outfits were so much fun! Having both our families help plan was such a help! Shopping for jewelry with my three sisters and running errands every other day is what makes all of it so memorable.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I’m pretty sure the highlight of the wedding week for both of our families and friends would have to be our Sangeet night. It was the first wedding in the midst of the pandemic and no one had really seen each other in so long. Mix that with an open bar, good food, and lots of dancing.. no wonder it was a hit!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My favorite part of the wedding was when I walked down the “aisle” with my parents and then seeing Balpreet for the first time after sitting down. I was nervous, but not too nervous, and after seeing him it just went away!

What a great way to start the week! Make sure to join us tomorrow for a new love story.

Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by Hakim's Studio

Happy Wednesday, Maharanis! How is your week going so far? We bet it is going great! And it will get even better after you take a peek at Seema & Daniel's wedding because it is one for the books. It overflows with so much beauty and traditional flair that you will get tons of inspiring ideas, so let's jump right into it! We are starting this Wednesday by looking at the cinematographic delight captured by none other than Hakims Studio - Photography and Cinematography. And right from the bat, we have to say that this wedding celebrated at the Fernbank Museum is like no other you've seen before! Due to COVID-19, wedding plans had to change, but Seema & Daniel, along with the Planner Nida from Red & Gold Events, managed to make it through. And the end result turned out absolutely beautiful! A dinosaur-themed museum, traditional flair, and luxurious ornaments put together by The Events Designer by S.A were the perfect combination to take this wedding to the next level. Hands down, Seema & Daniel couldn't have asked for a better place to unite their lives in marriage. After the ceremony, there was a fabulous reception to celebrate this life milestone. All guests danced the night away and enjoyed the culinary experience prepared by Cafe Bombay Restaurant and Catering. If you don't want to miss any detail of this fabulous event, hit the play icon below and get ready to dive into this real-life fairytale. Believe us; you will love every single scene!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him through a dating phone app. We first met at a go-karting place and we just talked for hours. At the time we met, I wasn’t in the place for a relationship but after months of being friends and realizing I would not want to talk to anyone else, I knew we should start this journey. And look! We made it! Friends for life and marriage.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
No surprise on the proposal or the ring. We planned a trip to Atlanta to meet my parents so that Daniel could ask them for permission so to say. We had the ring picked out and ready for the trip.

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 was a pathology fellow at the time so I was really busy. My family was helping plan the whole wedding and reception. Because I wanted them to have help, I choose Red and Gold Events to help out. Nida was a god send finding all the right people and really making the day special. My parents wanted a big wedding so we had a limited number of choices. In the end, we chose Fernbank for the openness and the beauty inside.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a color in mind for my dress (a blue or green - my favorite colors). My mom kept buying ones she liked online and hand stitched them to my size. My dresses were bought fabric only and she put them together for me.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
This year was a hectic planning process given COVID. We did the best we could and in the end it came out well but those last few months of planning were hectic and not enjoyable given the number of cancellations and phone calls.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The photo booth. Most of my guests had never used some before and they really enjoyed making funny faces and getting a memorable photo out of the night.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be patient and stay strong. For me, a pandemic was going to take all the joy of getting married away but with the support of family and great friends made during the planning process, it all comes together. Regardless the time it happens, it will happen and your marriage will be enjoyable and memorable for years to come.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Henna was done two days before the event by Nikki. She did a great job coming to our house and being safe during the day. Because my mom treats everyone like family, we specially cooked lunch for her. Cake was done by a local cake artist and she took my idea and did a great job. Always look around when choosing a vendor. You can always get a good deal. Hakim studios did an amazing job on the photos and the album.
