Staten Island, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Live Pictures Studios

Hello, ladies! Don't miss Silvi & Shibin's fusion wedding in today's Platinum Guide Blog. You'll love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I first met Shibin about 10 years ago when he came to my church to invite us for a conference they were hosting. As a typical teenager, I wondered who this cute guy is and figured I wouldn’t see him after that day. Fast forward to 3 years later, both of us were serving in the military. We added each other on Facebook and realized we actually crossed paths awhile ago. And the rest was history. At first when we started to talk to each other, we were in two different time zones and the way he tried to make time for us which meant staying up way past his bed time or waking up super early to talk to me and I just knew that I couldn't let him get away for the "second" time!

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.
Shibin is from New York and I am from Pennsylvania. So, we both wanted to pick a place that's in between and we ended up picking our reception venue in New Jersey. Therefore, we picked our vendors based in Jersey Area except for our wedding planner Anisha (Our Day Events) who is from Maryland. She attended all our vendor meetings with us. If she was not available to meet with us in person, she made sure someone from her team attended while Anisha attended the meeting virtually.

We picked The Venetian as our reception venue and Nora (venue rep) was really helpful in answering all our questions and accommodating all of our needs prior to signing the contract with them. Then we moved on to picking our decor. We were really glad to work with AWD and her team. we went in for our initial meeting with some bits and pieces of our vision. Benish knew exactly what we wanted and she showed us her previous works based on it and we were happy to leave the meeting with a solid plan in place. We didn't had to think twice when it came to our photo/video Team: Live Picture Studios (LPS). I saw their work about 5-6 years ago and I just knew I will be picking them for the wedding. We chose Premier Events as our Entertainment/ DJ through family recommendation. I chose Dipal as my MUA. She was very friendly throughout our conversations she explained everything in a detailed way. We did a hair/makeup trial and things went well and my skin took it well as it can be sensitive at times.

We were all set with our vendors and ready to go for our May 2020 wedding until we were faced with the challenge of rescheduling it to July initially. Anisha was our Angel at the time and emailed all of our vendors and got their availabilities. As we got closer to the July date we were still uncomfortable with high Covid numbers and were worried about the safety of our family and friends. Therefore we had to find another date in September. It was the same process all over again but this time we decided to move our reception to 2021. That also meant making this wedding as intimate as possible so, we had to move our ceremony location to Staten Island, NY. LPS was really accommodating to our last minute changes and gave us suggestions to help with timings. Benish helped us with "replanning" our decorations as we had to scale everything down from our initial plan. After multiple meetings with Anisha and Benish, they really brought my simple and elegant vision to life. Without Anisha, our wedding day would have been chaotic because as the plans changed, Anisha had to make changes to our wedding day timeline accordingly and it was no joke. Shibin and I are really thankful for all the vendors that we had the chance to work with as everyone played an important role in for September 12, 2020 wedding to bring to life.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I really enjoyed visiting our venue site and other vendors in person with my fiancé. As things are done virtually now, we might have taken those moments for granted. Oh! I would also say cake tasting was the " cherry on top " to our planning process just because who doesn't like free cakes. Hahah!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Walking down the aisle was such an emotional moment for me. I had my parents walk me down the aisle. The church was filled with all kinds of emotions. As I was walking down, all I could see was tears coming down from the family members, my bridesmaid and Shibin. After seeing everyone's emotions, I couldn't hold back my tears and the moment was just beyond special.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
As each story is unique, enjoy the moment with your fiancé. Take one day at a time. Please don't hesitate to ask for help from family and friends. Find time to treat yourself with something you love. Wedding planning can be stressful but It's okay to take a day or two off from planning and give yourself a break. The yearlong planning will come to an end in no time. Therefore, work our marriage and learn more about each other as you start your new journey together.

Chicago, IL Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Good morning, ladies! Don't miss Ankita & Kunal's intimate wedding in today's Platinum Guide Blog.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were introduced through mutual friends - he was living in New York and I was in Chicago. Our first date was actually a FaceTime, but eventually we met in person and hit it off! There probably wasn't a single moment where I knew he was "the one" but it was a feeling that I had from the very early days - he is kind hearted, caring, fun and a foodie like me :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was a cold February Saturday in Chicago, and I had a work event in the evening where significant others were invited, so Kunal was going to join me. Kunal told me that a cousin of his was visiting so we would stop by to see his cousin first, then go to the work event. So we got dressed up, and walked toward the location where his cousin supposedly was. As we walked over the Clark Street Bridge, Kunal stopped to take in the sights. I was freezing, so I was like "ok it's pretty, let's move on!" He asked if we could wait a minute and then reached in his pocket and proposed!
After the proposal, we went back to the place of our first date to grab a drink. Little did I know that Kunal had planned for my entire family and his family to be waiting for us at our apartment. We had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends that evening.

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.
Wedding plan in the times of COVID was very difficult. We had a number of different ideas - backyard wedding at my parents' house, civil wedding at City Hall, but we landed on a very small outdoor ceremony that was fairly simple. We had a civil ceremony officiated by a judge and are hoping to have a bigger Hindu ceremony in the future.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I purchased my bridal lengha not know that I would wear it for my wedding! I bought the outfit in Jaipur a few years ago just because I thought it was very pretty. With COVID, my trip to India to shop for the wedding was canceled, and I thought the outfit I had would be perfect to us on this day.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Writing the vows with Kunal, as we though about the kind of marriage we hope to have

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
With COVID, there is a lot of uncertainty about the future. We chose to get married because we didn't want to put life on hold because of things our of our control. I would encourage brides to be (and grooms to be) to think about what is most important to them and know that weddings can be reimagined and still be very special.

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.
Planning was a whirlwind for us. He proposed on December 2 and we got married in May the following year. Needless to say, time was of the essence. We were researching three cities at the same time. We decided on Orlando as the hotels could accommodate a large party and we would be able to have all our events in one space. We had amazing decorators that were talented, creative and attentive. We gave them very little guidance and they gave us a more beautiful wedding than what we could have imagined. Our mandap captured the charm of an outdoor spring wedding.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Truth be told, I wish I had more time to shop in India or custom design my outfits. However, all things considered, I was lucky to find the outfits that I did. I fell in love with the wedding outfit as soon as I saw it.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Walking down the aisle and seeing my husband to be’s face as the partition came down was simply magical. For that moment, every worry or concern melted away. We were born so overwhelmed with happiness. I will carry that moment with me always.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
You and your family spend countless hours on planning every minute detail and it passes you by in the blink of an eye. Savor every minute-soak it all in!

Try not to sweat the small things and think about, instead, all of your loved ones you have traveled to share this momentous occasion with you. I wish I had more time to spend with everyone. While they are there for you, you hardly get any time with them.

See you tomorrow for more. Same place, same time!

Livermore, CA Indian Wedding by Michael's Wedding Group

Happy Friday, Maharanis! If you were seeking for bridal inspiration, you've come to the right place! Today, we are featuring Meena & Yogesh's big wedding celebration, and believe us, you are going to love every bit of it! The big day arrived, and these lovebirds were more than ready to unite their lives in marriage. They both attended the wedding ceremony hosted inside the Livermore Temple's halls, looking elegantly and fashionable in their traditional attires. Still, it was our gorgeous Maharani who captivated everyone's attention. But we are not surprised as she trusted her beauty needs to TM's Makeup Artistry, who step up and created exquisite makeup and hairstyle designs that made Meena look like a princess! And let's not forget about the marvelous Mehndi outlined by Henna by Ridz. Mindblowing! The wedding venue mirrored our lovely duo's glamorous look thanks to the fantastic decor crafted by none other than Avasar Mandap. After the wedding ceremony, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds with a fabulous reception! This event followed the line of elegance and style that characterized the entire wedding, and it was the best way to bring the festivities to an end. The halls of the Castlewood Country Club transformed into a cornucopia of beauty and flair thanks to the fantastic decoration by Sai Decor. Without any question, this winning combination took this reception to the next level and made this a night to remember. And no reception is complete without an epic DJ! Thankfully Absolute Vibez was there to set the dancefloor on fire while the guests enjoyed the mouth-melting cake baked by Cake Delight. If you want to take a closer look at this wedding, head into this gallery to enjoy the incredible shots captured by Michael's Wedding Group!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Meena's friend, Mamta and Yogesh's sister's friend, Mala, were chatting at work one day. Meena's friend had her facebook page open and Mala asked who that girl was. She thought they needed to introduce her to her friend's brother. Mala stated "This is the girl that he is going to marry, I'm sure!"
Mala then added Meena on facebook and introduced them both and the rest is history! Yogesh lived in Connecticut and Meena in San Francisco. Yogesh was drawn to Meena's warm personality, and her joy of life intertwined with her affectionate nature and a spontaneous and contagious ability to laugh.
Yogesh's refined demeanor, his closeness to his family, his willingness to accept and work on his weaknesses, and his calming sense of wit and humor are some of the things that attracted Meena to him.
They later discovered that they attended the same elementary boarding school between the ages of 4-7 years old!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After Meena met with Yogesh's family in Chicago, Yogesh flew in from Connecticut that night. They met at Acadia's for dinner. As the courses were being served, suddenly, a cute little wooden box of dimsum arrived, and it had the ring and red roses in it! Yogesh was so nervous that he forgot to get down on one knee and also forgot his speech which all came later!

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.
Meena decided not to hire a wedding planner but rather, to do all the arrangements herself. It was something that brought together all of her strengths and she enjoyed it no matter how stressful it was at times. Everything came together beautifully in the end!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I love pastel shades--favorite is pink. Since I could not make it to India for wedding shopping, I went to every single store in the Bay Area. I bought my lehengas from Grand Trunk in Pleasanton which has the best designer stuff! The designers were Ashwini Reddy for the reception and Astha Narang for the sangeet. My wedding saree was the traditional pink and gold South Indian silk from Chennai, India. My clothes matched the theme and color of each event--yellow lehenga for sangeet, dark pink and gold for the wedding morning in the temple and blush pink and white shades for the evening reception.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I love organizing things and multitasking. I also enjoyed sending pictures of everything from flowers to venues and clothes to a few friends and my then fiancé and having them help narrow down my choices. I enjoyed meeting various people and seeing the whole thing coming together. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They enjoyed everything but they did mention that the reception was the best they had ever attended. Filled with beautiful decor and good food, drinking and dancing and most of all, so much love! We had people attend from all over the world and everyone enjoyed meeting each other!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
We really enjoyed all the speeches given by people close to us. I still have goosebumps when I hear them. I have not really danced since the age of 16 so it was special to me to practice for and perform solo at my sangeet after so many years.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Wait for the right person rather than taking whatever comes--life is long and this is the most important decision you'll ever make.  Communicate--this solves so much unnecessary headache! Marry someone you love talking to--as you grow older and can't do much else, conversations will play the most important role for the two of you.

That is all for this week, ladies. Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to join us on Monday for more.
