Florham Park, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Hi Maharanis! It's Wednesday and to pay tribute to another couple's video, Lightyear Studio tells the story of Kinjal & Shilp's wedding day with a heartfelt cinematic production of selected highlights you will adore. This same-day edit film is spectacular with its aerial shots, pre-wedding events, and lively baraat scenes. Aashirwad Palace offered a unique location for the couple to celebrate a super fun Sangeet that was just the prelude to their wedding day. This dance festival was just the perfect way to inaugurate and officially welcome all their loved ones to their wedding festivities. Early spring days can be chilly, but they can also be one of the most beautiful times of the year. I'm glad these two opted for this lovely season to tied the knot as their big day was just as delightful as a summer day! They ensured all guests stayed cozy as they warmed up the temperature, dancing all the way to the doorsteps of the Brooklake Country Club & Events. The ceremony was backdropped by the rolling green hills and pristine waters of this splendid outdoor space. It was also framed by an adorable open mandap structure that featured bright color flowers that contrasted just perfectly with the silvery sky. Heaters provided warmth for the couple and guests during the many Hindu wedding rituals. In the meantime, their large bridesmaids and groomsmen squad dressed up in deep sky blue ensembles formed a large procession that escorted the newlyweds into their new life. How beautiful! Kinjal looked like the ultimate Maharani in a red cherry bridal lehenga she cleverly combined with a long gold dupatta, and Raja Shilp donned a mint and gold sherwani suit that turned him into a dashing prince. Such a stylish couple! There is no other better way than departing from the ceremony in a luxury car, which is precisely what the new husband and wife did. They added a touch of luxe to their goodbye moment, riding a beautiful red Lamborghini into their happily ever after. Loving these wedding ideas? Get inspired by this film only hit the play button and make them a reality on your wedding day.

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were walking past each other and I tripped. He caught me at the perfect time and we landed in a dip. Time slowed down and the music started serenading. We knew it was love at first sight.

Just kidding! We met the traditional way...on a dating app! After a few dates and a lot of pizza, I knew he was the one when he could out-quote The Office to me. (But he knew sooner!)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Since we started dating, we had been dreaming about a trip to Ireland together. I had been obsessing over Ireland since my last 3 trips and had wanted to show Shilp the magic. We took an epic trip with our 4 friends driving around the countryside, stopping by tiny pubs and ended at the Cliffs of Moher overlooking the castle on the hill. In that moment, Shilp made my favorite spot in the world even more special by getting down on one knee!

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.
To be honest, we credit Dr Rina Desai, my mom, for planning and re-planning our wedding once it was rescheduled because of Covid! Both our families really chipped in and made this as stress-free as possible. We knew we wanted old-school maharani-style wedding outfits and an organic/rustic, simple feel for the decor. Nirali made our decor vision come to life! Brooklake Country Club and all of the people who work there made it extraordinarily easy to put this together. Rita Suthar my make-up artist (who I've known for 15 years), read my mind for my makeup/hair styling. DJ Gaurav played phenomenal sets that make even dance-challenged people get out on the dance floor. Nathan and his team at Lightyear Studio captured every bit of magic that weekend. This wedding was thanks to our family and all of these people! We know how much they worked to bring this dream to life!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted an all red wedding lengha. I went wedding dress shopping with my parents, Shilp and his parents, to try on different fabrics and lengha styles. I landed on a bright red, velvet style based on the richness of the look and the depth of the color. My mom then went to India to for all my wedding outfit shopping as I was unable to go myself.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Since we were forced to scale the event down, the guests who attended were our closest family and friends. We were able to have one on one time with our guests dancing, eating, taking pictures. I think our guests enjoyed the ease and the personal touch we were able to have at each event. Great food and drinks always helps!!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look was one of our most special moments. When we saw each other for the first time we both just burst out laughing, so happy and excited at the same time, followed by a big warm embrace. We took a breath to fully take in the moment and realize we had made it. We will never forget that.

I also shared a moment with my dad earlier in the morning when he saw me for the first time in my bridal outfit. It was full of emotion and so incredibly special.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The planning can be long and stressful no matter what size or style of wedding you are having. The one most important piece of advice from us to you is to enjoy the day (or days!). Enjoy the small moments with your family and friends, be present, laugh, take a picture in that photobooth, cheers with your signature cocktail, tear it up on the dance floor (even if your hair gets ruined). The time goes by so fast and the most cherished memories we have are from the times we spent together with our family and friends. Also unlike us, don't forget to eat something more than dessert at the reception!

I'm so happy you could join us and relived Kinjal & Shilp's special day! Thank you so much. Hope to see you tomorrow.

Palatine, IL Indian Wedding by Juan Alvarado Photography

Wednesday is always a good day for a big boost of inspiration, Maharanis! That's why today's wedding reel it's a total visual artistic production by Juan Alvarado Photography. I'm sure it will leave you in complete awe. Shreena & Anshul's love story goes back in time to when they started their romance as college sweethearts. How sweet is that? Despite the pandemic, these two decided to marry and downsize their plans and celebrate with their closest ones. To make their wedding dreams come true, they enlisted the highly talented J2R Events' team. They plan the most extraordinary ceremony at the Shree Swaminarayan Temple that was live-streamed and followed by as many as 200 guests around the world. Brilliant! The ceremony was not only meaningful but magical thanks to the fabulous decor by VP Impressions. The creative team filled the entire venue with a romantic vibe, soft hues, and fresh blooms. The couple had the most special day, overflowing with love, dances, and smiles, as captured by Joseph Kang Photography. Including Maharani's Shreena hair and makeup by Hala Beauty as well as Raja's Anshul's style! You can check out more of the images hereJuan Alvarado Photography filmed their big day in an extraordinary reel that will transport the lovebirds back in time and allow them to relive their most important day! Tissues ready, ladies. This film is an emotional one! Just hit play  below.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
So Anshul and I met years ago in college. He visited Indiana University for an NCAA tournament game with some friends and through our mutual connection (my cousin/his friend) we met at a birthday party that night. Nothing happened and after that night we went our own ways. A couple years later we bumped into each other while living in downtown Chicago. I thought he recognized me at a pizza place, but he didn't (he kind of forgot who I was). We both got a laugh out of it after the fact! We continued to run into each other unplanned at different restaurants and bars throughout the city and, after this happened a few times, he finally got the courage to ask me out and the rest is history!

Anshul and I have gone through a lot together as couple and grown together. For me, there wasn't just one moment where I thought he was the one. It was his constant acts of kindness and love that made me realize he is the one. He has supported me throughout our relationship and I know he will always have my back.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Anshul told me his work was having a summer party at a nice Italian restaurant along the Chicago Riverwalk! He had a "fake" email invite/flyer and everything. As we walked alongside the river, we stopped right in front of the restaurant we were supposed to go into - he said we should take a moment to look at the beautiful skyline and it was a hot Summer day so I didn't mind a quick break. I stood there actually admiring this view as the sun was about to set. When I turned around he was down on one knee saying his blurb! I was so shocked I couldn't process everything that was going on! After the proposal, he surprised me with a party where some of our close friends and family were there to celebrate!

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 got engaged in August of 2018 and decided to plan our wedding for May 2020. We had our venue, hair & makeup, outfits, decor and everything else planned to the final detail.

Unfortunately, the pandemic hit in March of 2020 and we had to change everything at short notice. There was so much uncertainty on what would happen: the number of people we could accommodate, vendor/venue availability, and the virus itself. We couldn't have the wedding on May 9th as we had planned but our family and close friends in Chicago surprised us with a drive-by and our brothers surprised us with a beautiful video with messages from all of our friends and family. Seeing all the love surrounding us gave us confidence to move on with our wedding.

We re-planned our wedding for July 3rd - new venue, just 50 guests, and only one event rather than the 4-day, 400-person celebration we had originally planned. While we were unable to have the wedding we had originally planned, our vendors could not have been more supportive throughout the re-planning process. They took all the necessary measures to make sure our wedding was perfect and that attendees were safe.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My parents, brother, and I traveled to India in November 2019 for wedding shopping. This was the first dress I tried on and we all fell in love with it! It just felt too good to be true to love the first dress. I kept trying on dresses but could not get this one out of my mind. That's how I knew it was the one!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was seeing how all our friends and family came together to shower us with so much love and support through adverse times. To have people who loved and supported us no matter what was truly amazing and not taken for granted. The re-planning process brought upon us many obstacles, but their support and care helped us get through it in one piece! Their texts, phone calls, FaceTimes, and love will have a place in our hearts forever.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved how we made them feel apart of it even though they couldn't attend in person. We had a live Zoom link which allowed us to have over 200 friends and family from all over the world present on our wedding day - technology is amazing!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A special moment that I keep replaying in my head is our first look. The moment when I placed my hand on Anshul's back and he turned around is something I will remember forever. It was just us. Just us before the chaos began. We both cried, laughed, and held each other's hands. It felt like all our worries and the stresses of planning a wedding and then re-planning a wedding all went away in that one moment.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Just breathe! I know that sometimes in the middle of planning the decisions you have to make seem like the end of the world, but they're not! I learned from this pandemic that you can plan and plan and plan and things just don't always go the way they are supposed to. Yes, you will remember that day for ever but you will also remember all the moments before it. So make it count. Have fun picking out the dress, choosing that vendor you really like, and eating a ton at food tastings. Because you will also remember those moments as well. I promise you will have a beautiful day no matter what as long as you just enjoy the journey.

Frenchtown, NJ South Indian Wedding by Weddings by Shooting Stars

Hello Maharanis! As you already know, we are very passionate about wedding films here at Maharani Weddings, and today we have dedicated our film feature to an epic celebration. Weddings by Shooting Stars captured Sushma & Krishna's south Indian wedding. The talented videographer documented all the magic of their big day in real-time! What a wonderful memory to relive in the future. Razberry's was just the perfect setting to celebrate the traditional affair and helped Weldone Events create the most special ceremony and reception. I'm so impressed by all the fabulous florals by Wedding Design & Decor, but I especially love the divine round mandap that served as space for all the prayers and promises. Let's talk about the beautiful bride. Sushma had the wonderful Prithvi create a stunning braid adorned with embellishments for her ceremony and her dreamy reception makeup look. She absolutely nailed it! The special beats were in charge of Kapoor Entertainment, who pushed every guest on the dance floor while Weldone Events catered the event with fantastic food! Grab a tissue before you hit play, and prepared to be seriously inspired!

Goodbye for now loves!  I hope you enjoyed this charming South Indian soiree. See you tomorrow.
