Welcome, ladies, to a real-life fairy tale wedding! A couple of months ago, we had Nirvi & Neil's gorgeous picture gallery by Gary Cohelo Photography. It totally left us sighing so if you miss it, you can relieve it here! Today, we have the enchanting film of everything that went on at the Hyatt Regency Orange County, beautifully planned and design by none other than Best Dream Weddings by Vanessa Doménech. The gala was this sophisticated and colorful flair that truly showcased what Indian weddings are all about. Dances, family and lots of fun were just some of the ingredients of this union. Of course, Maharani Nirvi had to be just glowing for a day of such importance. Dolled up by Lulu made her presence known and assisted the bride with her impeccable hair and makeup. So talented! And if that wasn't enough, the reception party couldn't have been this ode to style if it wasn't for the team from 3D Sounds who brought the house down with all the Bollywood and western beats that surely did put a smile on everyone's faces. So, ladies hit play and enjoy the amazing visual work from the team of Reel Initiative.

 

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Neil in Orange County, CA when he was in town for his cousin's wedding. I knew he was the one when all his actions showed me he cared for others more than himself, he would make sure everyone else was happy including my friends and family, and when he always made sure I had hot cheetoes in the kitchen cabinet!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Neil proposed in Cancun, Mexico at one of our destination trips together as a dating couple. It was a complete surprise. He ended up flying my best friends and family to NYC after we arrived back from the trip for more surprised filled events that entire weekend. He definitely planned it out to a T. 
 
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.
It was over a year of research, but I was incredibly happy with my vendors. I am so happy they put together our pastel color palette, our unique NYC vs LA city theme and really made sure our personal touches were there!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted to do a non-traditional color that still exemplified the simplicity, forward fashion, and style. I knew my bridal lengha was the one when my dad said it was. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food, the reception LED video wall and the overall hospitality. 
 
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.
Our first dance was a skit that was unique to us. We incorporated it with different songs and sayings. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It all works out in the end, don't stress too much!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Here is my video clip summary if you would like to share it or gain better insight into the details. My mehndi pic has been submitted, it was a unique story of our LA vs NYC long-distance relationship and how we used credit card miles to fly to see each other! Chase even gifted us with a personal card and gift!
 
 
My jewelry was handpicked, real gold, and gifted to me by my mother and mother in law. I was so fortunate to wear heirloom pieces that meant a lot.

 

More glam and glitter yet to come!
