Romulus, MI Indian Fusion by Rosy & Shaun Wedding Photographers

From the sweetheart stage to the wedding cake, this wedding celebration taken out of our "Best of 2018" Emagazine will have you swooning! Jaimie and Vaiibhav looked especially good for the camera of Rosy & Shaun Wedding Photographers who captured the new Mr. and  Mrs. in a charming outdoor photo session.

The adorable hall entrance was decked out with beautiful drapery and greenery and it was just the preamble to the wonderful decor that Marigold Wedding Planners created for the last event.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met about halfway through medical school. We lived in the same apartment building for over a year, but never crossed paths. He was coming back from a run, and I was taking my dog, Terry, for a walk. He ran past me but looped back to ask me if I worked at one of the local hospitals because he recognized the scrubs I was wearing as the same ones used at the hospital where he did his rotations. He ended up offering me one of his books to help me study, and I asked for his phone number so that I could "return the book".  
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was a group effort. He surprised me at sunset on a beautiful beach in Thailand. We traveled there with our good friends, Indra and Sushma. Vaiibhav picked the ring at the location, Indra was responsible for carrying the ring through customs, and his wife Sushma coordinated the details with the resort. After the proposal, we all had dinner on the beach. I was so excited that I barely ate any of the dinner Sushma had arranged for us all.
 
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 chose most of our vendors using personal referrals. We booked our DJ first before we even had a venue! I remember dancing at our friend's wedding a year prior when we both decided that Umesh would be our DJ if we ever got married, so of course, he was the first vendor we booked. We couldn't have asked for a better venue. The Sheraton staff and management were very accommodating and helpful every step of the way. Tina at Marigold Wedding Planners met with us many times and truly made our event feel like a priority. When we were looking for photographers we looked at countless galleries; it was so overwhelming. It wasn't until we started talking to photographers on the phone, however, that we began to feel like we would be able to choose one. Not only were Rosy and Shaun's photos absolutely beautiful, but after meeting with them we knew they were a match. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and they're the kind of people that you want to continue to see and hang out with even after the wedding is over. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We were limited in our options because we didn't have enough vacation time to go to India. We ended up doing all of our shopping in Toronto. I absolutely fell in love with a bridal outfit on the first day of our trip, and Vaiibhav picked out an outfit at the same shop. We put in an order for customization 6 months prior to our wedding. They were supposed to be made in India and shipped to us in February. They weren't delivered to us until 2 weeks before our wedding and were torn, falling apart at the seems, stained, and didn't fit. My outfit didn't include any of the custom requests that I ordered. We had to make an emergency trip back to Toronto 10 days before our wedding where we found our dream outfits at a different store. It was a very stressful situation, but luckily everything worked out in the end.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Cake and pastry testing!  Because of cultural differences, my mom wasn't able to contribute during much of the planning process. Luckily, cakes are universal! Not only were the sweets so delicious, but the afternoon of cake testing with my mom will be a special memory that I will always cherish.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved our food, especially the dosa station at our Mehndi and the chat stations at our cocktail hour. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It was very important to me to incorporate pieces of my culture in with Vaiibhav's culture, and having my dad walk me down the aisle was a particular priority. I will never forget the way I felt walking down the aisle with my dad, as one of my favorite songs played. He is an amazing man, and I will always look up to him. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
1. Go to the bathroom before the mehndi application begins.
Don't include too many dances at the reception. After about 2-3, your guests start losing interest. 
Pick out your outfits at least 6 months ahead of time, and tell the designer your wedding date is 1 month before the actual date to ensure your outfits are completed in time. This also will give you some extra time to do damage control if there are any issues. 
4. Decide on the 4-5 things that are most important, and try not to worry about the rest.
5. Don't eat or drink after the lipstick is applied.
6. Always remember to smile!
 
See you all tomorrow for more wedding fun!

Romulus, MI Indian Fusion by Rosy & Shaun Wedding Photographers

Welcome back, dolls! We continue with this fabulous union taken from our "Best of 2018" Emagazine! The scene was set for the fabulous union between Jaimie and Vaiibhav, but first, Rosy & Shaun Wedding Photographers arranged a sweet first look photo session so the newlyweds could have a quality and intimate time before their "I do's". The elegant Sheraton Romulus was the place picked to seal the deal and was transformed into a heavenly spot thanks to the magic touch of Marigold Wedding Planners who produced a glorious peach mandap that displayed lots of lush flowers and a fabulous aisle also beautifully illuminated with charming lanterns and candles! The dream team of Marigold Wedding Planners not only decked the ceremony but guaranteed that the array of amazingly talented vendors were perfectly coordinated. The rites continued outside the mandap as the charming newly wedded couple adhered to the post-ceremony traditions and signed their marriage contract after the official ceremony was over! Be sure to check out our complete gallery for more wedding bliss!

Cincinnati, OH Indian Wedding by Priyanca Rao Photography

I'm super excited to finally unveil the grand wedding reception of Alisha and Savio! Once again all the refinement of the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati welcomed the newlyweds and the partygoers into a lush ambiance of blush pinks and charming blooms! This time the floral mandap was transformed into an inviting sweetheart stage that covered the most splendid newlyweds' table. This romantic creation is all credited to the genius team of Weddings InStyle,  while the four-tier wedding cake displayed was a creation of the bakery crew at The BonBonerie. I love Maharani's Alisha sleek side-swept curls, navy blue attire and dazzling jewelry set and also love Savio's enchanting black tux. Another great element is the custom made dance floor that Elephant Head Graphics created for the party and where our happy new Mr. and Mrs. danced the night away with the lively music from Opening Minds Entertainment's turntables! This unforgettable event was another big success for Sonal J Shah Events who masterfully executed this soiree to perfection. For all the inspiring details from this stunning event, head into The Best of 2018 edition and the complete gallery by Priyanca Rao Photography!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Savio and I met when I went to visit one of my good friends in Cincinnati, where I had lived previously. We hit it off, and began dating long distance! I knew Savio was "the one" when I never got tired of spending time with him. I can be introverted and re-energize with alone time, but I actually felt better and more energized after I spent time with him. He felt like family to me. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Savio proposed in Hyde Park in Cincinnati closeby where we had first met. We were at a get together with some of our friends when he suggested that we live to get ice cream at a local ice cream spot nearby. I thought that was peculiar for him but we both loved this place so we went. Shortly after we shared our banana split, Savio got on one knee and proposed. It was very special! We spent the rest of the weekend celebrating with our friends and family. 
 
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.
Upon starting the wedding planning journey, I knew I needed someone who had good taste, direction, and choices. I was in the midst of my busy fellowship and did not live in the same city as my parents so I knew planning was going to be a bit of a challenge. After doing some research, we reached out to Sonal Shah who really vibed well with all of us. I knew that we wanted to get married in Cincinnati, Ohio because it was where we met and got engaged. Sonal provided excellent options for both local and non-local vendors. 
 
What was really special about my hair and makeup was that my mom had been getting names and numbers of vendors even 10 years before I was engaged. Karuna Chani had come to Cincinnati, Ohio from NYC many years ago for a wedding, and my mom got her card. She still had Karuna's card and we called her up and booked her ASAP. It was the best decision we made because she showered my mom and me with positive vibes and was so much fun to get ready with. Every look that I had was exactly as I had wanted it, and I let her take the creative initiative with each step. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My mom and I went to India to select my wedding clothes. Actually, because I was in the midst of fellowship, I only had 4 days in India. We had very productive days and made it happen in just a few days! I knew I wanted a red Sabyasachi gown before even going to India. The dress I chose was the first one I set my eyes on in the store. It was the best experience. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable process of planning was spending time with my parents. We talked on the phone very often, and I was lucky because my mom took the initiative on most of the planning. She coordinated with Sonal and all the vendors. Going to India with them was so much fun, and I will never forget how we worked hard together to create a magical weekend, and it was exactly that! We were not stressed or worried about the whole weekend because we knew Sonal and her team had everything in control going forward. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests loved the food, dancing, and overall ambiance of the wedding. I heard the cocktail hour was amazing with Dave Sharma on the electric tabla! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment that plays in my mind was our first look. Priyanca picked out the most beautiful and scenic spot in downtown Cincinnati with a portrait of a woman in the background. The look on his face and spending that time alone together was my favorite. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My words of wisdom would - enjoy the process! It goes so quickly, and it can be stressful at times, but hire your vendors early on and have a good wedding planner.  Your weekend will then be amazing and unforgettable!
 
See you soon!
