Tarrytown, NY Indian Wedding by John Martin Productions

Hello, darlings! We are excited to bring you more insights into Ditiksha & Rickin's wedding celebration, so let's check them out! Before they exchanged vows, our blushing bride sneaked up to surprise her Raja in a dreamy first look portrait session carried out by John Martin Productions. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Ditiksha & Rickin's photoshoot will leave you speechless! Maharani Ditiksha made her first appearance dressed in an exquisite dual-tone Lehenga embellished with exquisitely detailed golden patterns. She looked breathtaking thanks to the fantastic work of Makeup By Karishma. The nude colors, combined with the refined and classy hairstyle, enhanced the delicate and natural beauty of our lovely Maharani and made her look like a goddess. Meanwhile, Parth embraced a traditional and elegant style wearing a white and burgundy Sherwani suit that made him look handsome and imposing. After the photoshoot, these lovebirds were ready to carry on with the wedding ceremony held inside the halls of the exclusive DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Tarrytown. To make their dreamy wedding celebration come to life, Ditiksha & Rickin decided to bring Euphoriaevents on board. They had the critical task of conceptualizing and executing this life-changing event closest to perfection. And they nailed it! Hands down, this was a wedding ceremony that everyone loved, and we are sure that a lot of the guests will be talking about this fantastic event for quite a while. If you want to delve into this lovely ceremony, head into our gallery for all the unbelievable pics from this gorgeous wedding! They are worth the while!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Rickin and I met through Coffee Meets Bagel in August 2016. We finally had our first date in September 2016 and officially started dating in January 2017. I was in nursing school and super stressed out but he always made sure to make me his priority. On days I would have exams he would wake up at 5 am and come to the Grand Central from Jersey to take me to Brooklyn just to make sure I had breakfast before my exam. This ended up becoming a thing and right before one of my finals I was in the subway and the song Dil Mera by RDB came on and it hit me, he was the one! At our reception, he actually did a surprise performance to this song!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I lived in NY and he lived in NJ so in order to meet up we always met up at Grand Central Terminal. April 14 is his parents anniversary and his uncle’s birthday so he told me we would have a surprise party for them in the city. So we all dressed up and I went to the city with my parents, brother, and grandparents. And just like he always waited for me in Grand Central, he was there, only this time he had our close friends and family spell out “Will You Marry Me?” and all of the commuters that say behind him in anticipation (about 250+ people were crowded around). He brought me to the center of the Grand Concourse and dropped down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I always told him I would say no so I said “yea buddy” instead which he is known for saying!
 
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.
Since my name is Ditiksha and my now husbands name is Rickin we came up with the hashtag RickSha, we a few ricksha themed details going on an entire day! When looking at venues, Tarrytown DoubleTree really stuck out to us because the venue had a different feel about it, once you enter it felt very rustic but in a chic way and we really enjoyed that! As far as our vendors go, we wanted to have a team we could fully trust! Karishma Mehta I’d Make Up by Karishma I’ve been eyeing her Instagram since 2012 when we first met, so I knew I definitely wanted her to get me glammed up on my big day! As for my Mehndi, being a henna artist myself I really wanted someone who would do a great job and something different, when I first started doing henna, Shilpa Sharma from Henna by Shilpa helped me out and gave me some amazing pointers and I’ve always admired her work! She was the first vendor I booked and she customized my henna for me so well! For decor, we heard outstanding reviews from friends and family about Wedding Design and Decor. When we first went to pick our mandap, Ravi showed us one that looked like a mahal and right away Rickin and I knew that was the one because we wanted traditional but with a twist of something more modern and unique. As for our outfits, we both had the same vision we sent pictures to our family who made it all possible! I really wanted a yellow off the shoulder outfit for my Sangeet and Rickin wanted a sophisticated blue outfit. For the wedding, we both wanted to do red and white. He wanted his to be simple with not too much going on and I wanted two dupattas and a splash of green to keep it traditional and tie it all together. For our reception look, I wanted to be shining head to toe and he wanted a custom made suit. We also had our catering from Bukhara Grill at the wedding and reception; the first time we tried their food we were blown away! They defiantly delivered their best and had a chocolate fountain set up for us! As for our DJ, Sagar Shah (DJ Tonic) we’ve been to several weddings over the years and he’s always packed out the dance floor, which is exactly what he did for ours too! He was very easy to work with and just knew the right tunes! Now to capture all of this we really wanted to pick the best photographers and videographers! We had John Martin Productions who has been amazing to work with. He did our pre-wedding shoot and he was just so easy and genuine to work with, he can make anyone look good! As for the videographer we were recommended by our good friends to Claudio of Cutting Desk Productions! He made the trip out from Florida and did an outstanding job! He and John were able to work so well with one another and make me and Rickin so comfortable on the most hectic day of our lives! Now to tie it all together we had Nadia Jagessar of Euphoria Events as our day-of coordinator. While every wedding had their hiccups, we were glad we had her and her team to help the day go by smoothly!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted mine to be red and white with just a dash of green to tie everything together. I actually did not even try on my dress until much later! My grandfather had gone to India and got me my bridal lehnga!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was going on little trips with Rickin to figure things out such as food tastings, cake tastings, venue visits, etc. With each little detail, the wedding came more to life and it started feeling more and more real!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests really loved the RickSha theme and the convertible ricksha we had for the Baraat and Vidaii! They also told us that the food and music definitely made the night! We also had popcorn boxes with our caricatures on them which also was an itinerary of the Hindu wedding ceremony, the guests said they enjoyed eating the popcorn but also loved following along with the wedding ceremony! During the cocktail hour we lined up toy rickshas, each toy ricksha was the table number for all of our guests. The kids and adults had a blast playing with their toy rickshas and said it was a unique twist to the traditional table seatings.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There are several! The one that stands out to me the most is when I walked down the aisle with my mamas, it was such an emotional time for me and I tried my best to hold back tears all up to the point when we reached the mandap and I looked up and the first person I saw was my brother and he was tearing up. He gave me a little nod and gave me the strength to go up to the mandap. Then the Anterpat was dropped and there was my groom waiting for me! It was the most surreal feeling ever!
 
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.
For our sangeet, I really wanted a colorful and fun atmosphere! For this, I had my family and friends decorate it! We had a swing from Wedding Design and Decor and the rest was very colorful with pink and orange everywhere! As for the music, DJ Tonic played Garba and Raas and towards the end played some good old Raghav, Jay Sean and all those songs from back in the day! For our Haldi ceremonies Rickin and I both had specific outfits we wanted to wear. He wanted a Biggie shirt, which is exactly what he wore during his Haldi and I wanted a dhoti sari by the designer Nikasha! We also had a few surprise dances during our reception! One included all of my cousins and my aunts and uncles, I jumped in halfway and then dragged Rickin up to the dance floor! Another surprise dance was done by Rickin and his cousins, he did dil mera (which mentioned earlier was a huge song for our relationship)!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
While wedding planning is stressful, always remember to enjoy it no matter what. It’s easier said than done but soak it all in! On my wedding day I told myself I would not stress everything will work out... and it does! I can still close my eyes and remember the vibes, decor, emotions all of it and I’m so happy I took in those moments to soak it in!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We had a few details I wanted to share! One as I mentioned earlier was the convertible ricksha for the baraat and vidaii (thanks to Rags to Rickshaw)! Another was these popcorn boxes we had custom made; one side was a caricature of us in our wedding outfits while the other sides served as the itinerary of the wedding and the bridal party. We filled these up with popcorn and chocolates for the guests to enjoy during the wedding; one was placed on each seat. For our table seatings, we decided to order toy rickshas and placed each guests name and table number on them. This kept the kids busy and the adults seemed to love playing with them too! As for my jewelry, I had a nose ring custom made from India which had a pop of green to highlight the small green border in my bridal lehnga! My Mehndi was also customized and it showcased our whole story! On my left arm, I had a ricksha with a bride and groom sitting inside, a stethoscope to represent my career in nursing and a traditional Hindu bride. On my right hand, I had the NYC skyline, a gavel to represent Rickin’s career as an attorney with the writing #TLinNY which stands for Top Litigator in NY (he goes around saying this to everyone) and a traditional Hindu groom. We also hid Rickin’s name in both English and Gujarati and he surprisingly found both! As for our cake, we had gotten it from Lulu’s in Westchester and it was to die for! We had 4 tiers with 4 different flavors ( carrot cake, red velvet, mudslide, and vanilla); it was white with a gold border and a few subtle flowers to match our background and outfits! I also wanted to mention our outfits for our bridal party! We had a huge bridal party of 15 groomsmen, 2 best men, 14 bridesmaids and 2 maids of honor. We had all of their outfits custom made from India and they all came out great! We went with a royal purple and gold theme! While we had red and white during the wedding, we followed through with the royal purple and gold theme for the evening which was great in contrast to our outfits; I had a blush peach and silver lengha and Rickin has a gray suit and blush peach tie! Another thing that was very important to us was our wedding garlands, my family friend hand made them for us with fresh flowers!

 

Stay close because we are about to unveil the fantastic reception party that ended up Ditiksha & Rickin's with a flourish. So you cannot miss it!

Arlington, VA Indian Fusion Wedding by Paperbird Photography

Happy Thursday, ladies! It's been a while since the last time we shared an Indian Fusion Wedding with you. So when Jithu & Tyler's wedding celebration came into our editorial desks, we immediately knew that this was an event that we wanted to share with you. So, let's check it out together! This lucky pair didn't have just one ceremony; they had two! And what beautiful ceremonies they were! This time, we are going to take you on the first of the two wedding ceremonies, so get yourself ready! When Jithu & Tyler decided they wanted to join their lives in marriage, they knew precisely what they wanted. They wanted this first ceremony to be traditional, elegant, and extraordinary! That is why they decided to bring A. Griffin Events on board, as the expertise they have in making dreamy wedding celebrations come true, is out of the question. And what a fantastic decision it was! It is no surprise that every guest was blown away with the details surrounding this ceremony held at the Top of the Town. To set the mood for this life-changing event, Imperial Decor put together a minimalist, yet fantastic decor that created a soothing environment that we loved so much! Both our lovebirds attended this reception elegantly and fashionably, completely overtaking the scene! Jithu wore a traditional Sari from RMKV Silks that made her look like Royalty! The blouse was custom embroidered with Swarovski crystals with a bell design. What a lucky gal! To contrast, Tyler wore a custom-made Sherwani Suit, in royal blue with gold details from Saahil Exclusive that made his inner Raja come out! And thanks to the outstanding work of Paperbird Photography we get to immerse ourselves into this beautiful ceremony just as if we were there. We know curiosity has you now, so don't miss today's gallery if you want to take a closer look at this beautiful ceremony!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on OKCupid and after a few messages decided to meet up. He knew I loved beer and suggested we meet at a local dive bar but had no idea that he suggested one of my favorite beer bars!
 
We saw each other two more times that same week. By the end of the week, we both knew that we weren't interested in seeing other people.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After almost a year and a half together, Tyler made sure to buy the ring on an auspicious day (generously provided by my mother).
 
Tyler picked up my parents from Dulles Airport after they returned from a trip to India, and asked my very sleepy parents for their blessing. My parents agreed and promptly fell asleep.
 
That night, also an auspicious day, Tyler took me to dinner at a fancy French restaurant, where we had a bit too much wine. Eventually, Tyler popped the question while I immediately broke into sobs. After crying through most of his proposal, I said yes!
 
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.
Venue:
As our guests came from all over the country and from around the world (India, Dubai!). We wanted to give them a very DC experience. We chose Top of the Town for both ceremonies because of the sweeping views of Washington DC. We wanted our day to show great views of DC during the day and have a great rooftop area for the cocktail ceremony and reception.
 
Hair & Makeup:
I found my HMU team on Instagram and booked them immediately! They worked with me to create a modern Tamil bridal look for the morning complete with a fishtail braid covered in red roses and baby’s breath instead of the traditional jasmine flowers. The look for the Christian ceremony was delicate with nude lips and eyes and was transformed to bright eyes and bright pink lips for the reception.
 
Design:
We focused on simple overall designs that favored bright colors and atmosphere over more complex scenery. For this reason, we choose a relatively simple mandap (stage) and oonjal (swing) for the Hindu ceremony, and a simple, but classic, greenery backdrop for the Christian ceremony.
 
Flowers:
Our decor team came through with a wonderful selection of flowers. One of our favorite design elements was the way in which our decorator worked the colorful flowers of the Hindu ceremony into the greenery backdrop of the Christian ceremony and reused them for our centerpieces. It provided great continuity between the ceremonies, and helped brighten up the Christian ceremony with just the right amount of color.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We wanted to wear traditional attire for the Hindu and Christian ceremonies and wanted outfits that reflected us for the reception. We traveled up and down the entire US eastern seaboard  and coordinated with family in India for our three outfits.
 
For the Hindu ceremony, I wanted to wear a traditional red Kanjeepuram silk saree.  With the help of my aunts and grandmother in India, the red saree was purchased from RMKV silks in Chennai over a 5 am WhatsApp call. Additionally, the saree blouse was custom designed and embroidered with Swarovski crystals in a temple bell design.
 
For the Christian ceremony, I chose a white wedding dress from Amazon after searching through traditional bridal stores and unable to make a final decision. I was drawn to a with lots of tulle and delicate lace details.
 
For the reception, I wanted a bright colored lehenga and selected a yellow lehenga with hot pink details from Ladlee in Atlanta, GA. Not to be outdone, Tyler got a custom made navy blue three piece Jodhpuri suit from Om Fashion Boutique in Edison, NJ. We received so many compliments on our reception outfits and cannot wait to wear them again.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly, being done with wedding planning was the best part!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the baraat and enjoyed  kicking off our wedding with dancing! 
 
Additionally, we planned two surprise dance performances: one with the bride and her friends and one of the bride and groom dancing to lungi dance. Our guests went nuts when they heard lungi dance come on and were up on their feet with us!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The best part of our wedding was seeing our family and friends having a great time! My favorite story was about one of my best friends, Tyler's brothers, and one of my uncles roaming the hotel halls after getting back from a bar at 2 am and being gently scolded by my mother to go to their rooms. It was hilarious and also one of my favorite parts about weddings - bringing people together.
 
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.
We imagined our wedding to be warm, traditional but fusion wedding.  Although we are a modern couple, with all the cultural clashes that come with that, it was important to us that both of our families felt comfortable and represented in our wedding.   
 
Our rehearsal dinner followed this theme and was held at the Le Meridien Arlington’s outdoor taco shack, The Yard. We wanted a terrace space that would encourage our families to move around and interact with each other and a taco shack with picnic tables and lots of standing high tops worked perfectly! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
A wedding planner is a must! They are the professionals and have probably seen it all --late vendors, last minute changes, the ever-changing seating chart! They are a great source of information and great listeners who can guide you through your vision.
 
Sometimes the details and material items can drive you crazy! Before we got into wedding planning, we wrote down three things we wanted our wedding to be: family, fun, and love. When we were stressing about small details like label placement on envelopes or the design of table toppers, we circled back to  the three things we wrote down. It helped ground us and reminded us to focus on the important things.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We wanted to incorporate our two families by having heirloom pieces be a part of wedding. I wore my mother's diamond earrings and my late grandmother's gold belt for the Hindu ceremony. For the Christian ceremony, I had with me the groom's late grandmother's handkerchief embroidered with our wedding date. This helped us weave our families into our day and made it that much sweeter.

We cannot wait to share the second wedding ceremony with you, so stay close if you don't want to miss it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through mutual friends about 11 years ago. We were just acquaintances and ran into each other here and there over the years. Once I moved to Dallas, we got closer and became really good friends and then it just happened!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We actually both proposed to each other! I was secretly planning mine and he was planning his. Both of our sisters knew about it and didn't tell either of us. The most synchronistic part...we planned them 3 days apart. He beat me to it though and proposed first.

He did a Dil Toh Pagal Hai themed proposal because that is his FAVORITE movie. He transformed our home into a movie set and made every room a different scene from the movie. He had lines written down for me to play along with. He even had me do outfit changes similar to the ones Madhuri Dixit wore in the movie. It was so magical! In the end, he planned a little late-night dinner upstairs with an "Italian view." Everything came full circle then. He pulled out this game called "The Love Game" that I used on him when we first starting hanging out years before. Of course back then it wasn't called the love game; it was just a questionnaire to get to know someone on a more intimate level. After all that, he proposed and I did a cake smash! Both of our sisters came out of a room and surprised me and then we FaceTimed my parents who were dressed for the occasion.

My proposal was more public. I had it at the Don Quixote theater in Deep Ellum. It was a continuous dance number of all the songs that he loved growing up until that point. I had my friends, his friends, and our sisters in on it. After the whole dance sequence finished, he met me upstairs in the dressing room where I was down on one knee with our dog. He loved every second of it! The highlight of the whole dance was Ek Pal Ka Jeena from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. He said that song changed his life along with many other teenage boys at that time. His sister took the lead on that and crushed it!

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 so simple for me because I remembered that I had to stay organized. I booked everything a year or even more in advance. We really didn't want a big wedding to be honest. We were happy going to court and signing papers and calling it a day. We did it for our parents since we were both the eldest in our families. What we told ourselves throughout the whole process is we are doing it for us and no one else. I think it's important for every couple to remember why they are getting married to begin with.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted a deep velvet red. During our shopping, we looked at so many and it can get confusing at times too. I had to come back the next day and my decision totally changed. I wanted something different and unique and I think I picked the perfect dress for that.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was having so much support from everybody! From our family to our close friends, everyone was so happy and so willing to help at any given point.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think our guests loved the music! Our DJ was amazing! They were from New Jersey known as D&S Event Solutions. We had a video wall during our reception which highlighted our pictures, same day edit, and amazing graphics that those guys came up with. Their MC was AMAZING! He really knew how to engage the crowd. I also think the biggest highlight was my mother's dance during our Sangeet with a special appearance by my father. It was great.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The part that replays the most was me walking down the aisle and Dilan waiting at the other end. The priest let him see him because he wanted to give me a rose and locket as soon as I got to the front. He was tearing up, which made me tear up! What was extra special about it was that I let him choose my aisle song. He did not listen to that song until our wedding day and waited for that moment. That was the most magical part.

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.
We had so many different components to our wedding. First one was that we had a double baraat. I, the bride, had my own baraat. We both had vintage Cadillacs and met in the middle. I believe there was a moment from that featured on Bollyshake. Second, during our reception we did a sand ceremony, which was my husband's idea. Also during our reception, he wrote several shayari's (Hindi poems) that he wanted to share with me and everyone in attendance. During our Sangeet night, we had a casino night going on at the same time in which the chips were turned in for raffle tickets and we gave out prizes in the end.

Side note: while filming for our pre-wedding shoot, we decided to incorporate a water gun fight in our video which was so fun to do!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I want to tell all Brides-To-Be that it doesn't matter what happens, things go wrong, and things also go right. The most important thing to keep in mind is to remember why you want to get married in the first place.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The pictures can tell you everything about our wedding! There was so much love and joy from everyone and we did not want it to end! We loved every moment.  

 

If you though this celebration could not get any better, wait to see the upcoming wedding reception party! You are going to be amazed!
