Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My proposal was absolutely the cutest thing!  Since I am originally from Tampa, Florida (I am a true Floridian and love my state), Jeff knew it would be important for me to get engaged at home.  In addition to that he chose one of my favorite locations (which is the beach) with our most precious little Nico.  I could tell that he was acting a bit nervous when we were walking on the beach and it become more apparent when he had to take random pictures near a lifeguard stand until he got on one knee.  Perfect day!
 
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 start the planning process, I did a lot of research online.  This was a very busy time in my life as I was completing my last year in fellowship so I tried to do as much as possible during random times.  In regard to our venue, we had a number on our list but as soon as we walked into the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA (Hamilton Roof Top Garden) we knew that it was the perfect venue for us!  It had an amazing view:)  I am also so pleased to have had the opportunity to work with amazing people that made the wedding so special.  I cannot thank enough Beauty by Archana/Jassi for my beautiful hair, Mandaps by Dhoom for a beautiful set up for the ceremony, and DJ Ravi Jackson for the can't miss Baraat.  In addition, my wedding photos (Twisted Oaks) and videographer (Fiore Films) are the best in the business.  We had the Bachelor Boy's for our band and it was such a fun time on the dance floor and we highly recommend them for any wedding!!!!  Thank you Jennifer at Kaleidoscope Weddings for coordinating everything on such a busy day.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my wedding, I decided to have a traditional South Indian Sari for the Indian ceremony and then a white dress for the reception.  Since I was planning my wedding during a busy time in my professional career, I was lucky that my dad and youngest brother were able to go to India and pick out the fabric and colors (gold, red and green) and then tailor them according the bridal party's specifications.  Since the wedding was in the summer, I really wanted to have a good color scheme for my bridesmaids and groomsmen.  The color that I ended up choosing was glacier and I think everyone looked amazing. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our wedding guests absolutely loved the Baratt and the Indian ceremony.  Since it was a fusion wedding, some of the guests had never been to a wedding with Indian components before.  They had an amazing experience witnessing the prayers and rituals that were performed for the ceremony in addition to seeing a fun filled Baraat with plenty of dancing!!  In addition, we had Alicia Finger for Live Event Painting.  During the ceremony, she depicted us during our first dance and it was absolutely amazing.  It captured us perfectly and the guests enjoyed watching her and the painting unfold!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I would say the most special moment in the wedding was having my mom and dad walk me down that aisle towards the Mandap.  I know this is one of my dad's proudest moments and it made me so happy to see the joy in his eyes (and my mom as well) throughout the night.  It was very important for him to have an Indian component to the wedding in addition to having my bothers involved.  A family moment that will never be forgotten.  The other special thing for me was having a table dedicated to past loved ones on both sides of the family.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The best words that I can say is to cherish your wedding day because it will go by so fast (with a blink of the eye).  Enjoy the moment with your family and friends because this is truly a celebration for all involved.

We hope you are enjoying this celebration as much as we are. If so, don't miss the upcoming wedding reception!

Toronto, Canada Indian Fusion Wedding by Samantha Ong Photography

Welcome back, darlings! We are wrapping up today's featured wedding by taking a look at the fantastic reception party Gannanthiny & Kumaran threw to celebrate their life milestone in the company of their family and closest friends. And right from the start, we have to say that this gala, held at The Warehouse, was the best way to bring the wedding festivities to an end! As in all great parties, you need to have a great DJ to liven it up, and the talented DJ from Untouchable Sound Crew did not let anyone down! The fantastic music, combined with the scheme of lights put together by Magen Boys, set the mood for this gala and put everyone to dance! The only time the guests stopped dancing, was to enjoy the delicious plates prepared by The Spicy Kitchen, who made everyone have an unforgettable culinary experience. The night was coming to an end, but there was still time to share a delicious piece of the three-story cake baked by Pop and Cakes by Grace. And it must have been so good because our mouth is melting just by looking at it! If you can't get enough of this lovely couple and want to relive this entire wedding celebration, don't miss the gallery we have prepared for today! We have compiled the best shots captured by Samantha Ong Photography, and we are sure you are going to love it so much! So, make sure to check it out. It is worth the while!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Kumaran on an dating app and we were talking under a blind date feature and it was the 1 week of conversations under the blind chat that made me realize he was the one.

The proposal was of course a surprise and thoughtfully planned out by my husband.

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 planning was a breeze but it had its obstacles given we both are planners to begin with so we were at times not on the same page but it was good to have equal involvement from my husband.
 
All our vendors were unique and specifically hand picked for their talents and exceptional customer service.
 
Our decor and outfits and theme was all surrounding the fairytale vision as my husband always told me I was his dream come true and I too felt the same way. Even though it is something each couple feels within their love ours was different and devine and we wanted that feeling to resonate through the decor, outfits, etc and give that fairytale vibe to our guests too.
 
The details of our vendors can be found:
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Well my initial saree was picked by myself however the irony of it was that after my husband saw me for the first time on our wedding day he told me that he was going to gift that exact same saree for me as a wedding gift and when he had gone back to purchase it, it was gone! He was terribly disappointed but was very surprised to see that we had the same wave length and it was me who unintentionally stole his gift!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning it with my now husband, we learned a lot about each other and who we were as an individual and how we work together. The planning helped us to grow our relationship and we felt like we were married before we actually got married.
 
The most special was the self designed wedding invitations and website. we tried to add our touch as much as possible and sought out vendors that were starting out to promote them in our journey!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the vibe, decor, theme and our traditions and most of all the food of course by our talented catering chef @brindle.berry! That's always the important of any wedding and our was amazing as we got the best western south asian food!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment leading to us tying the knot and my entrances as with the first I surprised him with my first saree that he also wanted and the second was a custom made saree he made for me with only his touches and I didn't see it till the moment before i draped it.
 
That's just us... Surprising each other forever and always!
 
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 vision of our wedding was a western version of a Tamil wedding which included our cultural ceremony followed by a meet and greet session. Following meet and greet we did our civil registration and even wrote our own vows for each other and read each others' vows to each other. Shortly followed by an actual reception in which we included the dances from the wedding parties and of course shared our first dance!
 
The whole was magical!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process of planning and even though it is hard it is important to pay attention to the special and unique details that you both share and will look back at instead of focusing on spending money on extensive decor, etc. We tend to get carried away thinking the bigger the wedding the nicer but it's actually the more thoughtful and customized the wedding details to the couple the more special and memorable it is for the couple and the guests!

Toronto, Canada Indian Fusion Wedding by Samantha Ong Photography

Hello there, ladies! We know you were so captivated by the first part of Gannanthiny & Kumaran's wedding ceremony that you were dying for the second part, so wait no more and get ready to continue enjoying! We are starting right where we left off, at The Warehouse, where this event took place! In the first part, we focused on the backdrop for this ceremony; this time, we are focusing on what makes this event unique and unforgettable, and that is none other than our lovely couple: Gannanthiny & Kumaran! So, let's get this started, shall we? For the second part of the ceremony, Gannanthiny changed her outfit and burst into the room looking like a goddess dressed in a gorgeous red and golden lengha, after being glamorized by Timeless by Vinay, who designed a dreamy makeup and hairstyle. But that is not all! She added an extra touch of sparkle to her overall look, wearing enchanting pieces of jewelry from Anya Jewellery's collection. And we cannot forget about the artistic Mehndi designed by Glitterati Beauty! Simply amazing! And, you know who else looked amazing? It was none other than Kumaran, who attended this grand event wearing an all-white attire with delicate gold accents, from Aarathie Super Center.
