Alpharetta, GA Pakistani Wedding by MNK PRO

Good morning, Maharanis! TGIF! As you know, here at Maharani Weddings we make sure to bring you the best of the Indian Weddings and today is no exception. We are double featuring Shoheera & Mohammad's marvelous wedding celebration. First of all, we should thank heaven for the phenomenal talent of MNK Pro, who made sure to capture from beginning to the end, every detail and special moment, and created a marvelous photo gallery. And if this is not enough, on this installment, we have the visual masterpiece they produced, and I am sure that once you see it, your inspiration will increase! So let me take you right away to the Atlanta Marriott Alpharetta, the ideal venue chosen by our lovebird's to celebrate their eternal union. The long-awaited day arrived, and everything was just as our lovebirds dreamed about. And we want to take a moment to admire the beauty of Shoheera, our gorgeous Maharani, who looked spectacular and stole everyone's attention. She made the right choice by trusting all of her beauty needs to Color Impressions by Saba. And to add the special touch to her already ravishing look, Beauty You Deserve created a phenomenal Mehndi Art for our beautiful bride. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below to start enjoy it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Mohammad ("Mo") while I was doing my Master's program in Boston. He moved there for work. I was trying to be more social at the mosque, so I decided to go out with a group of people for bowling. Mo was working late that night, but one of his friends (who planned the bowling night) convinced Mo take a break and join us. That's the first night we met and hung out together.

When we met, it was an instant spark. As I got to know Mo as friends, I saw a lot of signs that pointed towards him being "the one". We got along really well, shared many of the same values and ideals in life, which for me was a rare find, and we supported each other with our goals and ambitions. There wasn't really one specific moment where I knew - I think there were lots of mini moments that confirmed that we were meant to be together through the course of our relationship.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We both come from a traditional family! So there was no proposal. We had a very traditional engagement ceremony with our family and friends, complete with the ring exchange, dinner, and dancing.

He did surprise me with the most amazing date night, with dinner at the same place as our very first date, a walk through our favorite neighborhood, and dropping down on one knee to ask me to marry him.....A MONTH BEFORE our wedding. I guess all the hints I dropped about wanting to be proposed to post-engagement really worked.

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 stressful because I was planning a 3 day wedding in Atlanta from Boston, but I started very early. I secured the venue, decorator, photo/videographer and caterer 10-11 months before the date. I relied mostly on word of mouth - vendors I knew have done an exceptional job in the past. I looked through Instagram and Facebook to see their work as well. I had a list of priorities where I knew I couldn't compromise on: food was a big one. At a desi wedding, the only thing that your guests care about is food. Photo/video was another priority because that's all that would be left to look at once the big day was over.

I will say, if I had to plan my wedding all over again, I would not change a single vendor. They were all so amazing to work with and they were truly amazing people that I got to know during that year of planning.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Most girls have a vision of how they want their dress to look like years and years in advance. I just knew I wanted my dress to be the traditional red. I had a few ideas (long top, skirt) but I was very open to other ideas. I traveled to Pakistan for my wedding shopping and relied on word of mouth about which designer would be the best one for me. The first (and only) place we went to was PLK (they're super well known in Pakistan), and that's where I got every single outfit designed (from scratch) for myself. Because I didn't have any specific idea or vision for the dress, I was able to mix and match designs, fabrics, shades of color, and styles for every inch of my wedding dress.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
THE FOOD. To this day, we have family and friends talk about how AMAZING food was at our wedding. I'm so glad I went with Asma's Cuisine. They catered my engagement dinner and I knew that day that they would be the only ones that would cater my wedding.

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.
We had a very traditional 3 day desi wedding. The first day was mehndi, second was pithi/haldi + sangeet, and the third day was Nikkah in the morning with a reception in the evening.

I didn't have too many ideas for my decor, with the exception of the backdrop for sangeet and reception. Yasmin Khan of RoyalDekors really helped bring out my creative and visionary side and added her own experience and input to come up with decor that would look unique and beautiful for each event.

The dances at the sangeet were another favorite moment. Mo and my friends and our cousins did a 45 minute sequence of dances and a skit that portrayed our love story. We had a cousins/siblings dance for both sides, a girls dance, a guys dance, and a ShoMo dance followed by the skit.

Reception was quick because I really wanted to have a large amount of time dedicated to open dance floor. After our entrance, we had our first dance, cake cutting, speeches, and then we played the shoe game - you know, the one where we sit back to back holding one of each other's shoes as we get asked questions about each other - followed by dinner and dancing.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start planning early. Us girls have a very specific vision of how we want our wedding to be for years and years. And if that is the case with you, it is best to start planning well in advance to secure your vendors who can make your dream wedding a reality. Come up with a list of things that you do not want to compromise on (for me, it was food and photo/video) and set your budget accordingly. I also think it's so important to try and take your wedding day one moment at a time. The day really flies by fast so enjoy it as much as you can!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My makeup and hair was done by Saba Jawed of Color Impressions by Saba. She was so great to work with. Because I didn't have a clear vision for each look, she really worked with me to figure out how to make each look for every event beautiful and unique. She made me look and feel like a Maharani bride.

My mehndi was done by Nikki Karimi from Beauty you Deserve and I LOVED her work. I really wanted mehndi that was very intricate and that's exactly what she did.

I also decided to get fresh flower gajray bracelets made for my sangeet night. Gardlands by Yasmin did that and I think she also did an amazing job. I showed her the color of my outfit and she made beautiful bracelets to match my outfit.

My cake was made by Nausheen Amir of Inspirations Unlimited. I asked her to incorporate my bridal lengha designs into the cake and she did just that. The cake looked spectacular and really complimented by bridal lengha.

We hope you enjoyed today's post, so make sure to visit us back on Monday! We have more for you.

And the final result was spectacular! Today you are invited to relive this enchanting wedding by hitting the play icon below. So don't think twice and fill your soul with tons of inspiration. This is one wedding celebration you don't want to miss!

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.
I planned my wedding in a short-period of time (6 months.) So when I was planning I had to move quickly, I had been following my wedding vendors on instagram for sometime and as soon as a date was set I started getting quotes and finagling everything as quick as I could.
 
My wedding planning experience was overall very fun and hectic. I planned my wedding in under 6 months, after realizing the venue we had chosen only had that date, and nothing else for the next year or so! I had a great support system helping me plan. My vendors were amazing!! Especially my photographer & videographer. I had been following Ayesha on Instagram for a while and contacted her immediately after setting a date. Finding my videographer was a little harder, I was a little hesitant at first because he wasn’t “known” in the desi community but he did such an amazing job!!
 
Planning the decor was fun but a lot didn’t go in we plan. I fell in love with my stage after seeing it at another wedding on Instagram once so I insisted on using the same florist that did the same stage, but the experience was not as good as she missed many details we had gone over. Looking back she was the only vendor I wouldn’t recommend.
 
My hair & makeup were done by the same vendor! She was so nice and sweet. I had gone to her for a trial, my bridal shower makeup, & mehndi makeup as well. This was a great decision because by my wedding she was comfortable with my face and knew what worked for me and what didnt!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a wedding dress disaster!!! I ordered a dress from Pakistan originally,  but when it arrived it wasn’t what was advertised. So me and my mom got in a car the next day and drove to canada to find a dress. I went to a few stores, but I bought the dress that I first tried on. I loved the unique color, and the detailing.
 
My whole life I had planned that I would go to Pakistan to go dress shopping, but with the little amount of time that I had and because of budget restrictions, I chose to order my dress online. BIG MISTAKEEEEE. It was not what I expected, and after seeing it I knew I couldn’t wear it. Two days later me and my mom drove to Canada to visit bridal boutiques. That’s where I found my dress, it was the first dress I tried on. I always wanted to wear maroon, but once I saw my cranberry dress, I fell in love.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
For me the process of planning out the small details was the funnest!! I loved scrolling through my Pinterest/IG feed looking at everyone else’s wedding.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our dessert table! It was so nicely put together & not to mention gorgeous. Our vendor mixed traditional desi desserts onto the table and I loved it! We also had a fresh jalebi maker in the kitchen!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A really special moment for me was when my mom was helping me get ready! I loved hearing our siblings speeches.
 
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.
My Mehndi was super colorful and fun! I ordered the dance floor cover from Pakistan, and loved all the color and detail on it. I made the canopy I walked in under, and I made the Shai Supari Wall For our Mehndi, me and my Husband learned our dance in the car after our photoshoot!!! We probably looked like idiots in front of everyone but we had fun.  Me, my mom, my dad built our shahi supari backdrop as well as the canopy I walked in under.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress & don’t over think it. Everything will work out. No ones even going to notice the small things you think are important. The venue completely messed up on my choice of linens and I didn’t even realize until I was looking at my wedding pictures. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Everything turned out great!!! My mehndi was done by a local mehndi artist!! A fun fact is she was the first person other than my mom to ever do my mehndi.
 
My jewelry was mix and matched between a local jewelry vendor and a vendor from Canada.
 
My cake was gorgeous & I loved it so much. I’m glad I decided to showcase it on my wedding stage.

What a fabulous wedding celebration! Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!

Meadowlands, NJ Indian Wedding by Joseph Minasi Studios

Good morning, Maharanis! The filmy time of the day is here, and today's film will blow your mind! We are pleased to present to you the marvelous wedding between Meera & Vishal. We should thank heaven for the enormous talent of Joseph Minasi Studios, who made sure to capture every detail, intimate moment, and emotion, and transformed them into a visual masterpiece. The Hilton Hasbrouck Heights was the perfect venue chosen by our lovebirds to celebrate their big day. Everything was lovely thanks to KM Events Management, who orchestrated each event and ceremony. Meera, our gorgeous Maharani, displayed such a natural beauty, taking everyone's breath away. To add a special touch to her royal presence, the talented team from Mehndikalogie created a unique Mehndi art for her. Needless to say that she ended up looking like a vision of beauty! This is a memorable event that will fill you with many emotions and ideas for your dreamed event. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below to relive this moment. Amazingness is just one click away!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Vishal and I officially met through coffee meets bagel dating app. After a couple dates and maintaining a long distance relationship, traveling back and forth to DC and NY, we both knew we shared something special. Shortly after, we introduced each other to our parents and told the family we wanted to spend our lives together. I never really understood the phrase "when you know, you know" until I met Vishal. We fit together like a puzzle piece.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Vishal proposed at Lincoln Center in NYC, outside by the fountain. I thought we were going to the opera, so we both dressed up. After he proposed, I saw a limo arriving and my friends and family came out to surprise us! We all went to a restaurant right after to celebrate! It was the perfect yet intimate proposal. I wouldn't have it any other way!

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.
I wanted to embrace my Indian culture and keep my wedding traditional but with a modern twist. I carefully planned every details of colors, theme and outfits/hair for each event. Each one of our events (Mehendi, Haldi, Sangeet, Wedding, Reception) had its own charm to it. Luckily I worked with the best vendors who were just spectacular about everything! Every vendor from decor, hair/makeup, photographer, cake, etc listened and understood my vision and what we wanted. They were so creative and supportive. Our venue, Hilton Hasbrouck Heights, catered to every need and worked extremely hard to deliver my vision. With the help of my incredible vendors, everything was super detailed and organized. Our planners, KM Events, made sure we were on time for each event and everything went smoothly. The decor was spectacular, the food was incredible, the music was on point!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted to stick with a red color for my wedding ceremony outfit. When I see the color red, I think of tradition, passion, love, power, and courage. I fell in love with this particular Sabyasachi lehenga when I tried it on and felt like a bride. It was everything I had envisioned.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
We are always talking about how all of our guests were on the dance floor at the reception! We had over 450 people and no one was sitting down! I've personally never been to a wedding where both the young and older crowd are dancing and enjoying life to the fullest! It was truly magical.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
With the perfect Sabyasachi wedding lehenga, I wanted to add my own personal touch. I hand embroidered my late grandmothers name, Manjula, in Hindi on my dupatta that was draped on my head. Although she wasn't physically alive to see me get married, I knew this was the perfect way to have her a part of my big special day. I felt incredible knowing she's with me during the ceremony.

If you were inspired today, wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow!
