A new filmy time is here! We are beginning this week by reliving Sonam & Herman's wedding celebrations. Thanks to the magnificent talent from Jonathan Cossu Photographer, we previously showed you details from this fantastic event. Today you can be fully-inspired by a tremendous and emotive film prepared by Mike Cantarell Films. We are heading to Cancun Mexico, where the Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa was selected by our lovebirds to host their wedding festivities. First of all, let me warn you that you might lose your breath away due to the magnificent look of our beautiful Maharani. She dazzled us during the entire festivities with the impeccable style provided by Alex Corbanezi Beauty, who took care of Sonam's beauty needs. As you can see in the video below, a piece of India was carried to the fantastic beaches of Cancun thanks to Shaadi Destinations, the expert Travel Concierge who assisted the couple during their stay. Every detail decorated by Grupo Gama reminds us of the Indian traditions just as Raja Herman stated: "Cancun finally sees the greatest Indian wedding of all times." Everyone had a blast weekend enjoying every single moment from this unforgettable wedding. Click play and relive this amazing bash. You can also visit the photo gallery here!
ow did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Herman on Halloween, in a bar in the middle of New York City, dressed up as a witch. He was dressed up in a Totoro onesie. For those of you that don't know, Totoro is a Japanese anime character that I just happened to watch religiously growing up. The rest is history.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Herman proposed to me on the beach in April 2018. He told me we were going to an engagement party, and while we were on the way he insisted on stopping off at a nearby beach to enjoy the view. When I got out of the car, I saw the most incredible set-up right there next to the water. There was champagne, a wooden arch with photos of all the memories we had made so far, flowers, and everything else I could've ever wanted. It was really something to see.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part of the planning process was the chance to make the events something that was truly our style. We got married in Cancun, Mexico, so we already had a destination wedding going for us. We really wanted our guests to enjoy every part of the wedding because at the end of the day, it was a vacation for them too. We scheduled out events in a way that there was one free day for guests to do as they pleased during the 3 day event period. We scheduled a massive all-day pool party for the guests (and us!) to fully unwind and have fun in an informal setting. Our guests could not stop talking about it!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
A piece of advice that many married couples gave us before our big day was to not let anything get in the way of our happiness and our enjoyment of all the events. Being the bride and groom, it is inevitable to be stressed about things going wrong, but it's so important to remember that you are getting married to the love of your life and you should be present to fully enjoy that. You shouldn't worry about the things that can go wrong, because things will go wrong. You should go into your wedding week with the mindset that nothing will ruin this time for you both, and to make the most of every moment because it goes by so quick.
I hope you enjoyed this lovely destination wedding as much as I did! See ya, ladies.
