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!

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!

Linthicum Heights, MD Indian Fusion Wedding by Mari Harsan Studios

After honoring Prasad's faith and culture, the lovebirds held an American ceremony in the dreamy outdoor lawn space of The Westin Baltimore Washington Airport. Before the "I do’s", the couple grabbed the leash of their beloved pooch who joined the wedding fun posing for a picture-perfect moment. The bride and groom’s jaw-dropping style was also captured by Mari Harsan Studios, this time our lovely bride Beverly slipped into a spectacular white gown, while Prasad changed his traditional Sherwani for a classic suit and finished off the look with a lovely white bow tie. The genius behind the coordination and planning of all the festivities was the renowned Drew Vanlandingham, who executed a wonderful job paying attention to each detail and helping the newlyweds enjoy their special day. The western ceremony took place under a steel arch that Sheila Smith and her team decorated following the first ceremony theme, pink hues, and florals! How adorable! Go straight ahead to our gallery for more inspiring images.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through our mutual hobby: sports cars
I knew he was the one because he's exactly like my baby brother, so patient, calm and respectful.  He helped me through a tough time and I couldn't have done it without him.  As a friend, he was so supportive-- I knew I needed to snag him up!!! :)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He set up this elaborate plan to go visit all the museums in DC together. It was a beautiful day and I went to get dressed that morning with a baseball cap, sneakers, and a t-shirt-- full tourist mode.  He dressed up in a button down shirt and dress shoes-- odd......
He persuaded me to change into something a little fancier so we can go to dinner somewhere nice.  My suspicions were up!
 
We went to the botanical gardens and he popped the question in the rose garden :)
By the time I called all my close friends and family, they had already known and they were waiting to meet us for lunch and dinner.  They're all a bunch of tricksters!!!   
 
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 an experience!  I'd say the hardest part was creating a fusion wedding between our expectations for an American wedding (white dress, officiant, etc), Chinese wedding (my background), and Hindu ceremony (Husband's parents).  Balancing the parents' expectations with what we ultimately wanted was the biggest challenge.  A challenge which was greatly reduced with the help of our wedding planner.  He was the perfect balance because there is a lot of pressure on me to make a good impression on my husband's parents and make them happy.  But at the same time, my husband and I were raised in America, so we always picture the white dress and a big fancy wedding cake.  Our wedding planner was able to tastefully incorporate everything and break the tension.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My mother in law made my saree in India for me.  I told her my favorite colors and she did a great job picking it out. It was beautiful!!!
My white wedding dress was selected by my maid of honor and mom.  It was very fairytale which is what I wanted because I wanted it to be drastically different from the Indian attire.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part was that I found out that I'm extremely lucky to have my husband.  I mean, I knew he was awesome, but omg he is SO STINKING AWESOME! He had my back 100% of the time.  He didn't make a single decision without talking to me and we were an awesome team.  He is always looking out for my best interest and no one else's, it's such an amazing feeling to know there is someone on this earth who cares so much about how I feel and what I want.  What are the chances that we found each other, right?!?!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Many of our American friends have never been to a Hindu ceremony before, they had a lot of fun!  They all took turns throwing rice and flowers at us, so it was very interactive and there is no way I would have allowed that in any other setting!
I also think all the guests got to experience two different settings. We had our Hindu ceremony inside on the mandap, and then our American ceremony outside on the lawn.  It gave it two very dynamic experiences.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Seeing Prasad in his Indian get up!  He looks like a sparkling Aladdin!  (sorry is politically incorrect?)  But he was all fancy and looked so handsome!  
 
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.
I loved the mandap, the flowers were beautiful, and the cake was DELICIOUS!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
JUST BE HAPPY! The day is about you and your husband, you can't control everything.  
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My knock out vendors were my planner, cake, makeup artist and photographer, they nailed it!
 

After two adorable ceremonies, it’s of course time to hit the dance floor! Don’t forget to come back!
