I remember when I got married many, many moons ago (or so it seemed) everything was so different back then! I knew the most important part of the Indian wedding was securing an absolutely fabulous photographer. Back then, (I am so not going to age myself!) photographers that could capture the essence of Indian weddings was scarce. Finding a great cinematographer was nearly impossible. This is why I love being part of the Maharani Weddings team. We have done the heavy lifting for you and today’s editorial featuring Anjani and Vishal by Epique Cinema is the rawest proof of that. We kick off the pre-ceremony celebrations with a vibrant mehndi celebration where Decor One by Nalini worked their magic with the most perfect flow of vibrant colors to capture that Bollywood vibe. We love a good proposal story and Vishal totally rocked out his surprise out of the park! "While in Santorini we stayed at the beautiful Canaves Resort in Oia. On 4/22/16, after a day of exploring the island, Vishal and I got ready for dinner which I was told was at a local restaurant. Instead, he led me down a path covered in rose petals to a panoramic balcony over-looking the Aegean Sea where he asked me to marry him. He even hired a private photographer to capture the proposal!" The ceremony and reception commenced at the Omni Houston where once again Decor One by Nalini splashed the spacious quarters with so much pizazz. We also have so much more from Anjani and Vishal’s ceremony and reception in store for you, so after you hit play, soak all the amor in our full gallery by the talents at Bella Lumi.

See you tomorrow Maharanis!
