We hope you all had the most fabulous Fourth of July! We know that some of you may be exhausted after yesterday’s festive outings, so we have the perfect clip to pep you up! Photographick Studios brings us a gorgeous video from Arlington, VA featuring the lovely Puneet and Karan. They're such a joyful duo, and we believe that their zest for life will take them to great heights together. This clip is a perfect example of why we love Indian weddings so much! Everything from the delectable food by Indaroma and melodies by DCs Dynasty had us buzzing with excitement. As Karan waited under the mandap with restless anticipation, guests were able to bask in the beauty of the magnificent ballroom at The Ritz Carlton - Pentagon City, adorned lovingly with wisteria blooms, whimsical draping, and twinkling uplighting by L'Ambiance with planning by Sagina Wahi - SW Events. Finally, romantic music by DCs Dynasty floated through the air, announcing that the lovely bride was ready to make her grand arrival. Everyone took a collective gasp as Maharani Puneet floated down the aisle in her pink and amber custom designed gown. Witness true love in this film by Photographick Studios and we guarantee you’ll be dancing in your seat! For more of the action, witness all the fun in the full gallery by Photographick Studios or scroll below for our interview with the main Maharani herself!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through a mutual friend in 2011 at George Mason University. In October of 2015, we both decided to take our five years of friendship and grow into a loving relationship. After dating for few months we both knew we were made for each other.
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.
Planning our wedding was not hard for me as my husband is Karan Kapoor who is one of the main DJs with Dynasty AV & Entertainment (aka DCSDynasty). He planned 99% of the details as he wanted to take the burden of my shoulder and only wanted me to care about my wedding outfit, and hair & makeup. He is very familiar with all the venues and vendors. He had asked me a few questions and learned about my ideas, thoughts, and details about venue. He had presented a total of 18 venues to me from which we narrowed it down to one (The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, VA). I wanted our decor to be very elegant and classy. I wanted our wedding ambiance to be a mixture of white and gold. Tall trees with hanging candles, and of course a lot of flowers. My overall experience was amazing with the Venue, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, DJ Services, Lighting, and Cake.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had many different ideas when it came to selecting my bridal lengha. I really wanted my bridal lengha to be have combination of pink and amber color. I visited India last year and had my lengha costumed made with the design I had in my mind. As far as reception dress goes, my mother in law, Karan's mom designed my Reception outfit which I did not get to try on till the week before our wedding. It turned out to be fabulous.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was that I did not have to research or look for the vendors. My husband did a lot of the homework and most of the running around. He always came up with new ideas. Which was helpful and we both had to sit down with our selected vendors to finalize the details.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A really special moment in our wedding that constantly replays in my mind is when we both saw each other morning of our wedding and looked at each other in tears. We both knew we couldn't wait to get married and spend rest of lives together.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be would be enjoy every single moment up till your wedding.
Thank you Puneet! Have a lovely Wednesday Maharanis. We'll see you all tomorrow!
