Welcome back, Maharanis! We are wrapping up Varsha & Shubhankar's wedding festivities with an incredible video of this elegant wedding. Studio KSD took advantage of the magnificent setting and snapped shots from every angle to capture the beauty, and romance of this lovely couple. Our lovely Maharani stole all the looks thanks to Color Me Rouge. She was stunning! And we cannot stretch how much we love the final result! It was time for these lovebirds to head into the halls of the EnVue, Autograph Collection where a fantastic reception party was awaiting! Xquisit Events designed and conceptualized this event, and right off the bat, we can tell that it was a huge success! Elegant Affairs took care of the decor with beautiful floral arrangements that created a magical scenario while DJ Monu Singh Entertainment enlivened the evening with live music that everyone loved! We wish this story didn't have to come to an end because we are having such a great time. But, we need to let these two continue with their journey into their everlasting married life! If you want to relive the best moments of this wedding, you cannot miss the lovely video that we have prepared for today!
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.
Our overall experience was pretty stressful as we had less than 6 months to plan. I loved my make-up artist, Meghna (color rouge) she was amazing and very accommodating. She understood my vision and did an amazing job. I got all my outfits from India, I loved all my outfits. Elegant affairs, our decorator did a great job on the decor. We went back and forth a lot but I love how the décor ended at the end. We also wanted a non-traditional venue for our wedding, we got lucky with Envue. They have an amazing patio with an amazing view. Our photographers ( studioKSD) were amazing, they understood our vision and made up feel super comfortable throughout the week. We loved how the photos and videos turned out.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew what I wanted for my bridal outfits. I wanted a colorful pastel piece for the sangeet outfit and have been following papa don’t preach for years so knew I wanted to have that for my sangeet outfit. When I wore my sangeet lehenga I knew this was the one. I wanted something traditional but modern for my wedding saree being south Indian. I found this monochromatic saree which I fell in love with. For my reception outfit, I knew I wanted Seem Gujral. I love her work and have been following her for weeks. I love the red lehenga.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think just seeing how everything was coming together and the food and cake tastings.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the venue and the view. The wedding and reception décor was a hit with everyone
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It was the fact that our friends and families traveled from all parts of the world just to celebrate with us. Most of our families live in Dubai, Nigeria, Australia, and India.
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.
For the sangeet, we wanted something really colorful, and elegant affairs did a great job. We had a flower-covered swing and a rickshaw for a photo booth. The main color theme was pink and purple. We ask our guests to wear pastels. We also wanted to have an ice gola station and all our guests loved that.
For the reception we wanted cherry blossoms, elegant affairs did a great job with that. I think we loved the reception decor the most.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Plan way ahead. Make that you book your favorite vendors asap. Also, enjoy the process, it can be stressful but you will miss it at the end.
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
