Geneva, Wisconsin Indian Wedding by L'Atelier Lumière International Photographie

Buzzing with energy and a welcoming spiriting, Maharani Tina and Surhid's Indian wedding celebration is full of rustic charm. After the bride got ready with Kate Johnson Artistry for her big day, it was time for her to turn heads at the Grand Geneva resort for the Indian wedding ceremony. Jeena’s bridesmaids most certainly took note of my favorite color by donning matching purple and gold lenghas that was a bold standpoint against the bride’s ivory white and red wedding dress. The venue just exuded luxury and class and I am absolutely certain guests were enraptured by the aura of pure bliss with the talented work of Elegance DecorL'Atelier Lumière International Photographie captured all these stunning portraits that have graced our screen. Head to the gallery for all the fun!

Plano, Texas Ismaili Wedding by VEK Photo

After the marriage solemnity, the guests went on to party for the reception at the exclusive Hilton Granite Park. Here, an ecstatic decor arranged by Wedding Decor By Faiza made the scenery an incredible sight! A spectacular cherry blossom lined the hall’s aisle created a memorable entry and a magnificent stage with cascading lights and a mind-blowing white bed of flowers around the top created a magical ambiance to celebrate the love! The new Mrs. carried a sweet cascading bouquet to be able to dance freely with her groom who opted for an elegant dark sherwani suit to hit the dance floor. DJ Riz Entertainment’s high spirited music entertained the crowd who also had a blast capturing their own memories with Red Photo Booth! Last but not least, Kiran and Malik sliced down a tasty six-tier wedding cake creation of Delicious Cakes to make this iconic moment the best of the night! Check out how Vek Photo captured this and more special moments of the grand gala in our full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We actually met online; a month after talking online we had our first date in Dallas. We had so many similarities it was hard to stop talking, it was like seeing a guy version of myself!  We actually are from the same neighborhood back home and were in the same religious services every night (without knowing each other of course) Our parents were also familiar with each other. We both thought the other one was lying to get points because when we would talk about our childhood, it was always a "oh my god me too!" that followed. I knew he was the one since he would call and check up on me on days which he knew were hard. He also would ask about my parents and their wellbeing and that was the icing on top!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Well after we both told our parents; we had an official engagement ceremony in April 2017 but he did not want to present the ring then (since he wanted to propose). Both of us being from very traditional families; he proposed after we knew we were getting married. It wasn't the same kind of surprise you get with most proposals but it was magical nonetheless. While prepping for the wedding, one of those nights in early October, he popped the question during a romantic dinner. 
 
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.
We had less than 5 months to plan a 4-day event for 400 people. Planning was done by the both of us and my very handy Pinterest board. We decided on the venues together, he actually drove me to Houston to order my reception outfit! I knew exactly the kind and colors I wanted to go for in terms of outfits since high school (Yes, I was one of those brides). As far as decor, I had saved plenty of ideas and I knew I wanted to go through Weddings by Faiza since she had done a phenomenal job during our engagement. Even after getting several referrals and calls from decorators themselves; I knew from the beginning that I wasn't even going to chance anyone else. She listened to my ideas and brought them to life + more! Everyone was in awe every single day and I'm so so glad to say that she has now become a good friend and a future planner/decorator for any upcoming events.  
As far as hair and makeup- being completely clueless when it came to pro makeup- I went through my instagram and immediately fell in love with Sarah Aasif. I went to her for a trial and knew she was the one before she even picked up the brush! Seher, who also works alongside Sarah was also the best! Both of them literally turned my looks into something beyond my imagination! For my reception hair and makeup, I had JTorry who brought my whole "royal theme" into my hair and makeup! I couldn't have asked for a better team! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I've always knew I wanted maroon and gold for my reception outfit. When I visited Panache By Sharpen; I fell in love with one of the lehenga she had. This was after failing to find what I wanted in countless stores. I custom designed my top and she had it made exactly how I wanted it. 
I mix-matched my pithi outfit with two outfits and my sangeet outfit was custom made with my design. One thing I did always say was that I would never be caught wearing pink and I actually ended up falling in love with a pink top (which I used during my pithi). My Nikah sari was custom made by Rozy Poonja of Organza/Rohp Indian Bridal. Rozy was like the fairy god mother who magically had my sari made in such a small time frame! My Nikah sari was very heavily embroidered with very intricate lace work and Rozy made it happen all within 4 weeks which was faster than any of my other outfits. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part for me was when Malik would come in town and we would go see Faiza for our decor. Those appointments would last hours because of all the thoughts/ideas I would have. Faiza always took time out to listen to my concerns, even if they were silly. I think my meetings with Faiza were the only "stress free" part of the wedding planning on my end! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Almost everyone we talked to was in love with our decor, food and the theme. Which of course made all of those stressful moments worth it. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance, and how I was mumbling to Malik that the fog machine wasn't on at some points, haha. But then he always brought me back to the moment and I am so so glad that we both enjoyed our wedding! We danced, ate and danced more which is exactly what I wanted to do. 
 
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.
Malik's family had a surprise dance during the sangeet in which I also took part in. I danced to two songs from the 90's which I knew Malik loved and went perfectly with our relationship. 
Our sangeet theme was "Pakistan." Since we both grew up going to weddings in Pakistan, we wanted our guests to feel as if they were in Pakistan. Our decor for that night consisted of canopy tents, string lights, umbrellas, a swing set and food carts with the following menu: Chaat, Karachi Haleem, Boti rolls, Bun Kababs and of course to top it all we had Karachi style Gola (snow cone) and Kulfi. The food was done by Chilli Pepper Caterings, dessert by Agha Juice and Food carts were of course provided and decorated by Faiza (Decorator). 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Express your ideas and concerns! Do you! Enjoy your wedding, don't be stuck sitting on the stage the whole time! Take plenty of bride/groom portraits! 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehendi was done by Kiran Meghani of KMhennaartistry. She was such a sweetheart and knew exactly what my style was since she also did my engagement mehendi. Our cake was done by Delicious Cakes in Addison and our cake serving sets were custom ordered from Ukraine to match our decor. I definitely wanted something different for my bouquet and Sadia Shah took my idea of a hanging bouquet and brought it to life! 

 

Here’s to the newlyweds! I hope to see you tomorrow!

Buena Park, CA Sikh Wedding by Samson Production

I am absolutely certain that Praneel felt like the king of the world when he boarded the Electra Cruises for his reception party that truly was out of this world. Imagine floating on the ocean wearing an amazing lengha from Manshaa Collection while sipping a glass of champagne. It truly was a one of a kind experience for Maharani Preet! Makeup artist Minal Khatri dressed up the bride in deep hues of coral and kept it classy with a highly pigmented lip and cheek formula. The all-over deep-hued makeup paired beautifully with Preet's monocratic lengha that just screamed undeniable sophistication. Sacheens Décor ensured that the yacht was fully embellished with polished décor that shimmered and shined in metallic fabrics that were made for the spotlight. Every detail is absolutely perfect and you can fall in love in our gallery shot by Samson Production
