Grab a tissue, Maharanis! Whiddon Productions shared with us a magical wedding video and I can truly feel all the love that surrounded Ani and Dev during their wedding festivities. They had a colorful Sangeet night where their family and friends gathered to celebrate our couple. It's amazing to see every family member and friend get involved and dance along like one big family, right in the feels! The wedding ceremony started off with a joyous baraat where Raja Dev arrived in a white carriage only fairytales can describe, a dancing crowd welcomed him and took him to meet his bride at the Cultural Center of India. This baraat was so energetic that I was dancing in my seat along the Bollywood beats! Maharani Ani was a showstopper in a red and gold lengha perfectly accessorized with kundan jewelry and a marvelous tikka to adorn her graceful updo. She was carried like a true Maharani in a golden doli to where prince charming Dev was waiting for her under a warmly lighted mandap with red and gold hues. Only Kalash Decorators could pull off something like this! Ani and Dev got ready for their reception and Kalash Decorators surprised them once again with a beautiful sweethearts stage with white and purple draping making it the perfect backdrop for our couple to toast with their families. Bollywood DJs lighted the ballroom with a romantic ambiance perfect to dance the night away along their perfectly curated playlist. Rasoi made sure the guests were fueled with delicious food to party until the wee hours of the night and Sugar & Salt provided a gorgeous golden and burgundy tier cake to satisfy any sweet tooth in the house.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
One of our mutual family friends shared his bio and did the same on his side. We started chatting and after a week or so we decided to meet. First meeting, was nice and fun I had a specific mind set that what kind of a guy he would be based on the picture I saw on his bio. But, he was completely different matured, funny, had a good sense of humor and most importantly caring. After, few meetings or so I had this feeling that he is the one. He had everything that I wanted to be in my man. I always felt protected with him and could see the future with him. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I did not had a specific color for my wedding dress, but I wanted a traditional one with a modern touch. My designer knows my style and the colors that I like so it was a easy process. I told her what vision I had in my mind and she made a beautiful dress.  

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was planning everything out with your family and how everybody gets involved, excited, and shows their love towards you.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The particularly loved the food, DJ, and the decor thought out all the wedding events. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
One of a special moments that constantly replays in my mind from my wedding. Is when the priest announced us a husband and wife for the first time. It's just a different kind of a feeling that is hard to describe in words. 

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis!
