Montego Bay, Jamaica Indian Wedding by Unique Visions Studio

Sweeties, we have extraordinary wedding footage that celebrates the union of Palak & Kevin in Montego Bay, Jamaica! The artistic wedding cinematographer, Unique Visions Studio, reveals through his lens the luxurious wedding at the exceptional Grand Palladium Jamaica! This lovely couple couldn't choose a better videographer since they always deliver a fresh, creative, and emotionally packed film. Lamey Rosebloom took the lead and designed this over-the-top affair that reflected the newlyweds' exquisite taste through the alluring decor, their outfits, and everything in between! I love Maharani Palak's style, but her makeup and hair look created by Flawless Beauty By Pauline were especially beautiful. We adore her stunning neet mehndi design by the super talented henna artists of Henna by Urvee! Relive all the beautiful moments in the film below! You will love every detail!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband and I are both in the medical profession. He is a cancer surgeon, and I am a Physician Assistant. We met on a medical mission in Kingston, Jamaica, in August 2013 when we traveled to underserved areas to provide free medical care.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The Proposal was 100% Kevin style. It was simple and intimate. Just the two of Gizmo and us. On January 17, 2021, we returned from spending the day with Kevin's family in the Bronx. Little after 6 pm, I was getting ready to sit on the couch and have my yogurt when Kevin got down on one knee and pulled out the gorgeous ring, and asked me to marry him. There were no bells and whistles, but it was everything.
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 essential details.
I hired a planner to help me. I was having a destination wedding in Jamaica so my planner was familiar with the destination and that was helpful. I found most of my vendors on Instagram, to be honest, and just reviewed their work and went with my gut feeling. I flew out my videographer, photographer, and makeup artist from the US.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted a white lengha to incorporate my husband's culture as well. I found a beautiful Seema Gujral lengha I fell in love with.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part would be choosing every little detail and customizing everything to my own taste and liking.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our venue, The Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa in Jamaica, was beautiful and I think the guests loved spending so many days together enjoying each other's company, partying, drinking, dancing, and celebrating our love together for 4+ days. We incorporated my husband's Jamaican roots throughout the events.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
As soon as I entered the Mandap, all of a sudden, it rained so hard. At first, I was panicking, but I looked out to my guests and saw everyone still there, embracing the rain and watching us get married regardless of having wet clothes and makeup and hair dripping down. That was truly lovely.
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 have to say the decor was effortlessly beautiful, simple, and chic. We had several DIY details such as our welcome bags, reserved seating signs, phoolon ki chadar (handmade by my best friend's sister), custom shot glasses for guests to take before taking their seat for the reception, our guestbook was a Bob Marley coffee table book, little snack bags packed with goodies flown all the way from India, custom fans for the ceremony, and each reception table was labeled as one of our favorite travel destinations.
Our flowers were imported. While Jamaica has tropical flowers, I wanted something more muted and romantic, using more pastels.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start as early as possible
Stay organized.
Have a few point people you can rely on and assign duties; you cannot do it all.
Don't forget to enjoy each and every moment as it all passes by so fast.
On the day of the event/events, don't get hung up on things that did not go as planned; IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.
Have a reasonable budget. Cannot have a champagne taste and a beer budget.
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

Dallas, TX Indian Wedding by Vellora Productions

Today we are sharing Nikita and Milan's wedding highlight reel. This romantic work of art was captured and produced by the talented Vellora Productions. With impeccable visual storytelling, the cinematographers captured their most special days chronologically. This duo's entire soiree was full of music and merriment and culminated with a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Renaissance Dallas HotelPalino Events helped Nikita and Milan helped them tailor and plan the wedding of their dreams. Kudos to the planning team for such incredibly well-executed events. With a long list of events, Maharani Nikita had to search for Red Lotus Artistry to assist her in preparing all her bridal looks! The beauty expert team draped and styled her outfits and created the bridal makeup and hairstyles for all her five functions. I am sure guests were in awe of all her unique looks! Divine Décor of Dallas took care of all decor. Ketan Mistry is amazing at coming up with fresh ideas and really portraying what you want through his work. Nikita says. Their reception had the incredible DJ Riz Entertainment, who made their last function a celebration that everyone will remember for years! They also brought all the way from England a good dose of Barfi Bites by Minesh Patel, especially for the occasion that everyone loved, and made this evening even more special! Scroll down and watch and get inspired by this lovely union through the lens of Vellora Productions

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
The better version is on our website!
I
 met Milan through our multiple family and friends. Someone texted my mum a picture of him, which she sent to me back in Nov 2018, she asked “are you interested he’s 6’3” ?” I immediately said, “finally, someone cute and tall!”
Milan actually ghosted me twice so I was a little apprehensive to speak with him again. About 6 months later, my family and I went to Amarillo, TX to meet my sister's boyfriend's family. We stopped by Milan’s aunt's house (because my parents were friends with them) and they had planned for each of us to be there without us knowing. Milan showed up and I got so nervous. He was cute and very tall. My family left me there to get to know him, and we ended up going to a bar and talking for hours. He then went to drop me off in the Palo Duro Canyon so I could meet up with my family. I figured this would be it. We’re not going to talk after this because I didn’t know if he was interested. But then as we were waiting in the dark for my parents and sister to finish their show. He leaned in for the kiss, it was then, that fireworks from the show started going off. I burst out in laughter. It was so cliche.
We met up in Dallas 3 weeks later and he asked me to be his girlfriend that night. I knew Milan was the one after 2 months of talking, the final test was if Simon (my Goldendoodle) liked him…he passed the test. Milan is so caring and loving and he fits into my family so well. His parents are amazing and he’s my best friend.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
On our website :)
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 started the planning process about a year out (a couple of months after the proposal) I had 3 destinations in mind for my wedding so I started looking up potential venues and interviewing wedding planners. Milan’s best friend from college, Chanel Patel, was a wedding planner so we decided to interview them as well. Palino Events were fairly new at the time but I knew they would understand the aesthetic of what I wanted, we trusted them because Chanel was Milan’s friend and after speaking with them I knew they would advocate for me and Milan when speaking to other vendors and our parents! We all know planning an Indian wedding is 50% for your parents haha. 
The hotel venue we used was Renaissance Dallas Hotel. The staff was kind and attentive, the venue was also beautiful and convenient.
Red Lotus Artistry from Dallas did all of the bride's side HMU and my mothers in law and her sister. Vidya is amazing and so easy to work with. She’s worth it. She provided services for all my bridesmaids and sisters plus my mum and Milan’s mum and aunt which is difficult to find a team large enough do to that. She also draped and did my hair for all events. She really understands your personality and translates that into your looks. I felt comfortable and beautiful for all 5 of my events! We even recently used her again for my sister's wedding in Cancun - in Nov 2022!
All of my outfits except for my wedding outfit were designed and made by KEVIV DESIGNS in Philadelphia! Vivek has so much attention to detail, gets you what you want and is honest about what is in and what looks classic! He helped me pair up my jewelry and style all of my looks! His communication was on point and he was always there for me throughout the entire process! Highly recommend!
Vulcal Orlando designed my wedding lengha and Milan’s outfit. It was amazingly designed and the fit was perfect!

My Decor was designed and displayed by Divine Decor Of Dallas. Ketan Mistry is truly an artist! He pays attention to what the bride wants. Which is so great when planning any wedding. He’s amazing at coming up with fresh ideas and really portraying what you want through his work. He’s a great friend now and I recommend him to everyone that is getting married! I truly was overwhelmed with how slot-on he was with my decor. Couldn’t have found anyone better.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I originally wanted a red lengha but my colors were emerald, ivory, and blush pink. I found a design that I fell in love with and added a few touches to it when I showed it to Vulcal we came up with the idea to make the lengha ivory and blush pink/peach!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Spending time with my parents and all the excel spreadsheets! I really enjoy planning events and using excel so this was a dream for me! ;)
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The decor, food, and the venue
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment we walked out to the welcome party/Sangeet. It was so overwhelming that I cried happy tears! Just seeing everyone there for us and how beautiful everything turned out was truly so memorable for me.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t be scared to ask for what you want. Have fun! Don’t stress too much and soak in every moment during that week. Pamper yourself the month of your wedding, if things don’t go as planned it’s OK! everyone will still love it as long as you’re not stressed. Don’t stress too much on the tiny details because people won’t notice. Lol
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My bouquet was actually made by my mum with silk flowers because I want to keep it on display in my house. I have my grandmother's broach on there because she wasn’t able to attend my wedding due to COVID travel restrictions from the UK.
Most of my jewelry was from indiatrend.com and I got so many compliments!

My desserts were amazing, we had Barfi Bites flown in all the way from England made by my family friend, Minesh Patel.
We also had all of our cute and tasty desserts at the reception made by Charming Affairs By Noreen in Dallas! They were gone in literally 10 mins or less!

Atlanta, GA Gujarati Wedding by Derek Wintermute Photo

It's reel day, loves! We have a beautiful day for a beautiful reel! Long story short, Jenika and Shivam's parents served as marriage scouts and matchmakers. The duo met in the USA, and sparks flew! They decided to take the plunge and planned a big traditional Gujarati wedding involving more than 300 guests! Wedding expert Derek Wintermute Photography waved a series of lovely clips of their union that turned into a beautiful highlight reel. Four days of traditions, family, and dance, including a ceremony and reception at the luxury Westin Atlanta Perimeter North were part of the elaborate affair. Utopian Events designed the decor for the main days creating the perfect ambiance for both events. The aisle lit up with candles added a touch of romance and infused the ceremony spot with soft pink shades and blooms. Jenika also walked the wedding aisle in pink! She planned a spectacular look along with Shiya's Glamour, who draped her AsoPalav bridal ensemble and transformed her into a real-life Maharani using their expert skills. Shivam also made a striking statement decked in a Jade Blue pastel pink Sherwani and a Nordstrom blue suit for his reception. A night bash followed the wedding. Here, Jenika twirled in a silver lehenga and danced the night away with Shivam to DJ Bobby's music beat. At the same time, the couple's closest family and friends surprised them with dance performances! Watch these special moments captured frame by frame in the reel below.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

Cinnaminson, NJ Indian Wedding by Studio KSD

Good morning, Maharanis! It is reel day, and we are delighted to release the beautiful highlight video of Nija and Ketan's elegant nuptials in New Jersey. The pair asked Studio KSD to capture and film their best wedding moments, and the stunning visuals are pure magic! I am sure this film will take your breath away. Indian culture and festivities came together at The Merion, and their unique Skylight Ballroom was the setting for their grand ceremony. Natural light bathed the wedding rituals thanks to the majestic glass dome that crowned the open round mandap created by All Event Decorators. After the I do's, Nija and Ketan concluded their wedding celebrations with an upscale reception party enlivened by DJ BK from Luxe Event Group from Luxe Event Group, during which their dearest and nearest took the mic and delivered touching toasts and speeches for the newlyweds! EC Spin 360 entertained the guests and created memories with a 360 selfie booth while Mr. Paanwala provided a delicious Paan station for the partygoers! I absolutely adore the couple's fashion. Nija was the ultimate Maharani thanks to the glam touch of Beauty by Jasbina and Mehndi artists Aneeta Nashad. She flaunted a show-stopping floral ensemble and opted for an elegant white lehenga with sparkly work for her final event. While Ketan also went for a white-off Sherwani suit that he completed with a mint scarf for the ceremony and looked sharp in a tuxedo from Nazranaa at the reception. The entire soiree was planned without a worry, thanks to Posh Kreations, who created a personalized celebration and masterfully executed all the details from start to end! Check the reel below and let Nija and Ketan's film inspire your wedding day!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met the new traditional way. Ketan actually knew I was the one first and told me so during one of our first dates. From the very beginning, we just “clicked” and on our first date, we talked for literal hours! He’s always so open, honest, and steady! I knew he was the one because of how safe and comfortable he made me feel. I can be as goofy as I want and he’s right there with me!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was during the pandemic, so he told me to dress up and come over for a dinner. Smart move because I had been WFH and my normal attire would have been leggings and a sweatshirt! When I came over, he took me out to the back patio and it was so beautifully decorated with candles and flower petals everywhere! My favorite song was playing too when we walked out and our closest friends and family were hiding on the side. After he proposed, they all shouted congratulations and we had champagne and celebrated from a distance since it was early in the pandemic. It was such a wonderful moment and one that I will cherish forever!
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 married at The Merion in the skylight ballroom! I have loved that ballroom since I was a guest at a wedding there many years ago and always had it in the back of my mind. Ketan and I went to go see it and he instantly fell in love with it too! Once that was finalized, our decor and clothing all revolved around that. I knew I wanted an outdoor rose garden theme for the wedding to complement the beautiful dome in the ballroom. For the evening, I always envisioned an elegant black tie cocktail theme and we added greenery and candles to tie in both the wedding and reception together. Our decorator did such an amazing job with both!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew from the beginning that I didn’t want a traditional red dress. Since we were having a rose garden theme wedding, I wanted something that would complement it. We found my dress at the last shop and it was perfect! White with all the spring/summer floral colors. We decided to coordinate both families' outfits, with my family in light pink and Ketan’s family in light green. So many guests complimented us on how well the coordination was and how beautiful the whole family looked together!

Maharanis! We unveiled Nija and Ketan's wedding photos in our Main Blog not long ago! Just click here to peruse this charming fête.
