We’re in such a cheerful mood after viewing the vibrant and romantic Indian fusion wedding film of Melissa and Vivek created by Fairytale Productions. The duo had a blissful ceremony at The Townsend Hotel, followed by a decadent reception soiree. Throughout the weekend, gorgeous Melissa was a couture goddess in fashions by Chandan Fashion and Frontier Heritage. Her lipstick red ceremony lehenga was pure Bollywood perfection! After their emotional ceremony surrounded by luxurious ambiance, it was time for Maharani Melissa and her Maharaja Vivek to let loose with family and friends at their reception party. The bride was gorgeous as ever in a mesmerizing navy gown that took our breath away. So lovely! Bellasario Florist transformed the spacious Townsend Hotel ballroom with a spectacular vision in mind. We adore the enormous fuschia centerpieces displayed in stunning formation throughout the room, surrounded by thousands of twinkling crystals and candles. And kudos to the planning dream team from Bombay Wedding Events for ensuring each and every detail was executed to perfection. Kidd Skilly locked the dance floor down with their fabulous sounds for the grand finale events. Guests dined on appetizers and a specialized dinner menu catered by Saffron, with a bounty of delicious dishes for all palettes. We have the magical film from Fairytale Productions for your viewing pleasure, so hurry and click play! And make sure to scroll below for some behind the scenes deets from the Main Maharani.

Description of the Day:
When Vivek proposed to me in Thailand, his mother, two sisters and I began planning our perfect wedding THAT EVENING! I knew immediately that I wanted to have a predominantly Hindu wedding incorporating a few important American customs. Every part of wedding planning was amazing.  From choosing the decor to shopping for the most beautiful Indian clothing, I was in awe. The Sangeet was a blast. I never imagined that I would be part of an Indian performance let alone performing in front of so many people. The next morning, our wedding day finally arrived! Everyone kept asking me if I was nervous. I expected to be nervous, but surpassingly was not. I couldn't wait to marry the man of my dreams! Our morning started out with all of the girls in the family getting ready in the bridal suite. This was very special to me because I was able to begin this journey with my sisters and cousins as well as my newly acquired family members. When it was time for the baraat, I was able to get a peek as it arrived at the hotel. My heart began racing as the ceremony time approached.  My father walked me down the aisle. I had been telling Vivek for weeks that I was wearing American to the ceremony. I could see the look of surprise on his face as I walked toward him wearing a traditional red wedding lehenga as well as adorning solah shringar. Our wedding consisted of a hindu ceremony as well as ring and vow exchange. After we were pronounced husband and wife, it was time to start preparing for the reception. Our reception was absolutely more than I could have dreamed of. After dances, speeches, and a surprise Indian performance, we danced the night away with friends and family.
So adorable. We hope you loved the film Maharanis!
