Princeton, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Studio Nine Photography + Cinema

Happy Monday, Maharanis! We hope you've had a great weekend full of love and inspiring ideas! It feels great to be back with a new love story for you, and we are sure that today's fusion wedding will make your heart melt with tenderness and joy! So let's check it out together! When Poorva & Zachary decided to join their lives in marriage, they knew that they wanted to honor both their traditions and backgrounds, that is why they ended up having not one, but two wedding ceremonies! For this installment, we'll be taking a look at all the beauty surrounding the Christian wedding ceremony held at the gardens of The Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village. This ceremony had a minimalist design done by Planories, and we loved how they took advantage of the natural setting to create a beautiful backdrop very well complemented by the delicate floral arrangements from Nirali Decor. Poorva, looked ravishing on her white bridal gown from Davids Bridal, after having trusted her beauty needs to DipBeauty.MUA, who created a fantastic makeup and hairstyle! Check all the beauty of this event in today's gallery created thanks to Studio Nine Photography + Cinema. You will love it!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Zach had mentioned that he was making a jewelry box for me which I was expecting as a Christmas gift. He told me that he finished it early and wanted me to take a look at it. I opened it up to take a look inside and noticed that there was a ring box inside. As I realized what was going on, Zach took the ring box out of the jewelry box and got down on one knee. He then prepared a five course meal for me with all my favorite foods!!

 

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 we got engaged around the holidays, we were lucky enough to both have a week off around Christmas time. We spent this week looking at vendors and venues. We had a few rough patches with nailing down a venue that would work with the flow of events we had in mind and ultimately visited the Westin in Princeton. We both knew pretty soon that this venue would be perfect for our event. Westin's event manager and her wonderful team was happy to accommodate all of our needs. It was also extremely convenient having a wedding at a hotel since all the key players in our wedding day were at the hotel the night before the wedding. Because of the venue's size and event space options, we were able to host our events in the different exciting spaces of the venue throughout the day.

 

After finding the venue, we quickly started finalizing our vendors and are still extremely happy with the awesome professionals we had the opportunity to work with. I recommend all couples to meet their vendors in person if possible prior to finalizing contracts.

 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I traveled to India for my wedding outfits. I went to Meeraj in Bangalore for my Hindu Ceremony and Reception outfit. I found both these dresses within an hour of visiting the store. I showed the clerk a picture of a couple of dresses I saw on Instagram that I liked and he was able to find me a few dresses from their collection that were similar. I had a fitting that day itself and the tailor had my dresses ready in five days and both dresses fit perfectly during the final fitting. My Sangeet dress is from Hind Collections in Pune and I was able to get the dress fitted there as well. My Christian ceremony dress was from David's Bridal. This was one of the only wedding dress stores that carried dresses that were more conservative.

 

I didn't have any specific colors in mind for any of my dresses. I just knew the overall style that I had wanted. I also had to specify to the clerks I worked with that the wedding was in the United States. They knew exactly what types of dresses were popular with their American customers.

 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?

The best part of the planning process was by far the food tastings. Both Zach and I are huge foodies so having great food options was very important to us. Moghul and Westin worked very hard to get us the perfect fusion menu. So many people came up to us during our wedding and complimented us on how delicious all the meals were. They especially loved the cocktail hour menu, which honestly was our favorite as well. Since food is so important to us, our wedding coordinators made sure that we were fed throughout the wedding day. We had four meals that day and Westin especially arranged a full cocktail hour display for Zach and I in the bride and groom suite.

 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests loved a lot about our wedding since most of Zach's side had never attended an Indian wedding before and most of my family had never attended an American wedding. We were able to capture the best of both of our cultures in our wedding day.

 

They especially appreciated how organized and on time all of our events were. Full credit for this goes to our amazing wedding coordination team, Planories, and our amazing venue event coordinator, Ginger. So many of our Indian guests were pleasantly surprised at how well managed the flow of the day was and how every event had started exactly on time.

 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

There are four specific moments that stand out to me during our wedding week. Each of them involved seeing our event space decorated for the first time as we had planned. Nirali decor did a phenomenal job with the event spaces. I specifically remember walking to the mandap as it was my first time seeing the wedding hall. I was trying my best to make sure I wouldn't trip and fall while also trying to absorb how beautiful the mandap was. The next most memorable moment was getting a sneak peak of our reception hall with all the reception decor and uplighting from our DJ.

 

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, we went with the standard sangeet style decor. Lots of bright colors and lots of dancing. Our families did a bunch of performances for us. Zachs cousins and my cousins surprised us with joined organized dance. Zach and I performed to some Bollywood music as well. Seeing Zach dance for the first time shocked and impressed our families.

 

For our reception, we went with a theme that matched the outfits we wore. We tried to keep the speeches and dances to a minimum. We had a father daughter dance, mother son dance, and a first dance. We also had five speeches- our fathers' speeches, my brother's speech, Zach's best man's speech, and our speech. This allowed us to get our dinner buffet started a bit earlier and get the dancing started early as well. I know our guests enjoyed being able to hit the open bar and open dance floor early in the night.

 

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

Make sure to know what your priorities are for your wedding day. Communicate this with your wedding team and key players in your wedding. Also make sure to hire vendors that you feel comfortable with because you will end up spending most of your day with this group of people. Planning is key in making sure you have a smooth wedding day. Things are inevitably going to go awry, but it's important to enjoy every moment and remember your guests won't be able to tell if things have gone wrong. Absorb the happiness and joy that your families, friends, and guests are experiencing with you. A happy bride is a beautiful bride!

 

Fusion weddings always got us excited, so share our excitement and stay close to take a look at the traditional wedding ceremony!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on shaadi.com, I felt like I knew about two to three months into the relationship. I knew after he would make me chicken curry and was by my side during my medical licensing exams. It has always been so easy being with him. We are inherently compatible and always willing to compromise to meet each other halfway.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I nagged him and fought with him for years for a proposal. We dated about 4 years before we got engaged. After nagging him for 3 years I had given up. We went to an all-inclusive in Jamaica and he convinced me to wear something nice to this French restaurant. Even though I just wanted a lazy evening, I dressed up and we headed to dinner. He insisted on getting a photographer to take our photos on the beach. I was convinced the photographer was a sales gimmick and tried to convince Vik out of it. I tried to take selfies and was wondering why he was sweating bullets. At sunset, we are doing different poses for the photographer and he gets down on one knee and says, “since I’m in this position will you marry me.” I'm shocked and start giggling and manage to muster up “are you serious?” We have a private dinner at the beach and the Iberostar in Jamaica was amazing.

Picking bridesmaids/groom men outfits, we had the best bridal party in the world and it was fun to get them customized outfits m.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There is a moment when I was walking down the aisle and both Vik and I shared a moment. We were both tearful because only we knew the journey we had taken and all the adventures and setbacks we had been to get to this place. Vik is my person and I was grateful to be marrying someone that not only loves me but challenges me to grow.
 
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.
Decor- really focused on gold/white/peach and pastels
Dances- for Sangeet boys did a medley which was a mix of Tamil/Hindi and Indian sounds which were amazing.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The wedding is only one day regardless of what happens, what really matters the most is you marry someone who gets you.
