Mahwah, NJ Indian Wedding by Saroj Studios

Welcome back, Maharanis! We hope you are enjoying Anvi & Nish's wedding festivities as much as we are because there is still plenty more to admire! This time, we'll be heading off to the exclusive Sheraton Mahwah Hotel to take part in the lovely ceremony that united these two in marriage. Hands down, this ceremony was beautiful beyond words thanks to the decor crafted by Abhishek Decorators. The dreamy Mandap draped in soft-hued linens, the lovely floral arrangements, and the precise placement of all the ornaments created a magical setting more than perfect for Anvi & Nish to tie the knot. We want to make a big shoutout to Tum Hi Ho Events, as so much beauty and perfection could not have been possible without their detailed planning and execution. So kudos to them! And we cannot talk about beauty without talking about Anvi! She burst into the room dressed in a traditional lengha embellished with golden embroidery and showcasing a flawless makeup and a sleek hairstyle, designed by Cinderella Bridez. This winning combo praised this Maharani's natural beauty and made her look like royalty! For more insights into this lovely ceremony, don't forget to visit today's gallery. We have compiled the best shots captured by Saroj Studios for your enjoyment!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted a traditional red lengha. Little did I know there are over a 100 shades of red, when I went shopping. But when I saw this lengha, I just knew.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The look on the grooms face once the cloth was taken away from between us during the wedding.
 
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.
Our first dance we had both of our favorite songs and some throwback 90’s hits, which we both loved performing to.

Don't go too far if you don't want to miss the upcoming wedding reception.

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

Welcome back, darlings! It is time to continue our journey through Ami & Naishik's wedding festivities by taking a look at their lovely wedding ceremony. So get ready to enjoy it! The big wedding day arrived, and the BAPS Mandir Atlanta was more than prepared to host this life-changing event! It is no secret that all Maharanis aspire to have the wedding of their dreams, and that is why our lovely Maharani planned and trimmed every single detail of this ceremony, to ensure everything will turn out just as she always imagined it! For the decor, Mandap World worked their magic, crafting a minimalist yet striking decor that set the mood for the occasion. There was so much beauty surrounding the scene, but nothing compared to the ravishing looks of our lovely Ami. She had all eyes on her as she walked down the aisle dressed in a traditional red lengha with golden embroidery from Shyamal & Bhumika and showcasing a flawless makeup and hairstyle designed by Robin Shanael. We cannot stretch how much we love her final look as it is reminiscent of the looks of a princess from an Indian Fairytale. If you can't get enough of this lovely couple, make sure to take a look at the gallery that we have prepared for today, thanks to the talented folks from R.A.G.artistry!

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.
 

Get ready to have some fun at the upcoming reception party!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Kevin and I met each other in 2009 during our freshman year at Penn State University. We were introduced through one of our good friends. The next thing we knew, we were spending almost every day together, scheduling classes together, going to football games, study dates on the weekends and eventually we became best friends. He asked me out in 2013 and we were in a long distance relationship until I finally moved in with him in 2018! I don't really feel like there was one defining moment where I knew for sure that I was in love with Kevin. It's been just a multitude of things/moments that made me sure of my feelings for Kev. Even though we've had our fair share of struggles, our relationship has always felt easy for me because Kevin has always put me first in his life and made me a priority. He has always made me feel like I can be my silly self around him 24/7! He has been the most supportive partner I could have asked for and he was my best cheerleader during Physician Assistant school. He made me feel that I could grow into my own person and yet still be with him and that made me fall in love with him more and more each day. It's easy to give up in a long distance relationship but his constant effort to keep communication up and count down days till we next saw each other made me so happy and loved. Most of all, he makes it a point to be close to my family which has always been so important to me. The respect and care he gives to my parents and brother is so nice to see and I know my family loves him for that. Saying goodbye to him when we graduated Penn State (when we were still just friends) was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do and knowing that I would probably never see him again was when I was so sure I wanted to be with him always. He was and is my best friend and I couldn't picture life without him.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was still in PA school at the time in Oakland, California so I went to visit him in San Diego on a weekend. Our first date was at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego and on Friday the 13th (4/13/17) he wanted to take me back to Sunset Cliffs for a date. We started the day off by going to his work together. He was beyond nervous and was pacing back and forth in his office. I asked him what was wrong and he attributed it to the meeting he was going to have with his boss later that afternoon (I totally believed him!!). Later that evening, we packed up some snacks in his backpack and headed over to Sunset Cliffs. We strolled the spot hand in hand waiting for the sunset. He told me I was beautiful and the best friend he could've hoped for. He asked me if I wanted to have a snack while we waited for the sun to go down and I said yes! So he got behind me, took his back pack off and he called out my name. I turned around and he was on one knee asking me to marry him. I was so emotionally overwhelmed and felt paralyzed at that moment. I said yes and it was by far the best decision of my life.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I did quite a bit of research for my bridal lehenga and my wedding dress. I had saved tons of ideas on a pinterest board and instagram. I ended up getting my bridal lehenga from "Pooja Sarees" in Ambala. As for the white dress, I had picked out a few options online but I went into "Luv Bridal" in San Diego knowing the one dress I absolutely had to try on. Of course as soon as I tried it on, I fell in love with it.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I always knew I wanted to go back to India to hand pick all my outfits, jewelry, etc. Going with my mother just made it that much more special. She played such a great role in helping me pick out everything from my bridal lehenga, the jewelry, bridal heels, to my mehendi and haldi outfits. She made planning more emotional than I thought it would be and it gave us a chance to spend a little extra time together before I got married
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The Mehendi was hosted at my parents house two days before the wedding. I sat down next to my mehendi artist with my arms out, my family was playing "Mehendi Hai Rachne Wali" from the movie Zubeida and the next thing I knew tears were rolling down my face. Getting the mehendi on my hands felt so symbolic of the beautiful stage of my life that I was about to embark on. The other extremely memorable moment for me was being escorted by my four brothers to the mandap during the Hindu ceremony surrounded by all our family and friends. Kevin and I looked at each other and we were so ready to start the rest of our lives together.

Don't go too far, because this fantastic love story just started and there is more coming down the road!
