Columbus, OH Indian Wedding by Photosaga

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis! The week is just starting and we never stop! Today we have yet another accurate representation of what Indian weddings are all about! Vinaya & Karthik decided to the knot with all the style in the world, but also, paying homage to the traditions they hold so dearly. The Bridgewater Banquet and Conference Center was the venue of choice for both ceremony and reception and we know what you are thinking! A fantastic choice, to say the least! What was also fantastic was Maharani Vinaya's fashion sense and multitasking abilities. Seriously, it is not that often that we have a bride that handles her own hair and makeup and all the decor choices! This gorgeous lady is truly a Maharani for the books! The newlyweds also wanted the best of the best for their guests. In order to do that, they recruited the fine talent of DJ Mavi Productions who brought a playlist with all the latest Bollywood hits and modern tunes! So, ladies, you can't miss this love-fueled jubilee coming to us thanks to Photosaga! Let's get to it!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through our mutual friend while doing rotations in our third year of medical school. The attraction was there from the very start when first met at the dinner at our friend's place. He always says how he couldn't make eye contact with me because I was too pretty... We got to know each other in the hospital though, talking in the hallways, eating lunch together. Then we slowly realized we were seeing each other without our other friends. The attraction is basic and not difficult to find. My comfort, and a feeling of home, away from home, that feeling is hard to find and that's what we found in each other.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We did a traditional proposal at our engagement event in front of our closest family and friends in Canada with a traditional Hindu pooja.

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.
We both worked tight schedules and it so happened that we both were only "free" in March, so as much as I never dreamt of a winter wedding, a winter wedding is what we had with a huge storm two days prior to our big day. We picked Columbus Ohio (my husband's home town) as the wedding location since we got to have the engagement in my home town, in Canada. The venue choice was mainly based on the fact that they let us cater food from outside, as most venues within the area restricted bringing outside catered food into the venue. I decided to suit the season of winter, I would light pastels for a brighter warmer feel for our ceremony with creams and peaches and then for the night reception I choose a bold dark maroon and cream for a romantic feeling.  Hair and makeup I did myself as I dislike the feeling of wearing pounds of makeup and feeling un-like myself. I stayed true to myself and worse makeup to accentuate my existing features and kept the looks simple and wispy.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted to keep my outfits very traditional with minor changes in the cuts. For my first saree, I wore a beautiful traditional red with gold detailing saree. And as I'm Malayalee and we normally wear cream silk sarees for the ceremony, for my second wedding outfit in which the mangalsutra was tied, I wore a traditional cream silk saree with the traditional Indian red trim and blouse. My husband wore the traditional dhoti. And for the reception, he wore a dark navy suit while I wore a dark cream/gold lengha with a pink shaal.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning was actually very hard to do seeing as my husband and I work almost 80 hours each, however, having our parents very involved and helping with the planning made it more enjoyable.

 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved how traditional the ceremony was. Although it was long, the traditions performed were appreciated by most as most weddings these days no longer include such details.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I walking down the stage during the wedding ceremony; my husband's face was covered and I wasn't able to see him as a sheet was held before him and I had all my best girlfriends and my sister walk in front of me. It was an emotional time to finally live the moment we waited for 4 years.
 
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.
We had my haldi celebration at the Airbnb my family and I stayed at. We kept that simple with some decorations from a department store and some prayer items from my mom's prayer room from our home. The sangeet/mehndi night we again kept simple and rented out a room in a nearby Indian restaurant.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Not everything will go right on your wedding day, but that doesn't matter because at the end of the day you get to be married to your (hopefully) best friend.

Amazing wasn't it?

Concord, NC South Indian Wedding by Christopher Brock Photography

Welcome back, Maharanis! Today, we have a gorgeous couple that is the absolute manifestation of vibrant youth, love, and of course, style. They are Shree & Kunal, and we have thanks to Christopher Brock Photography, everything that went of for the most important day of their lives! Both the ceremony and reception were held at the magnificent Embassy Suites by Hilton Charlotte / Concord Golf Resort & Spa and the gala definitely was everything we love about Indian wedding bashes. Amongst the several characteristics that we adored about this wedding, for sure, the color palette that was chosen for the main ceremony truly stood out the most. The tones of copper, burnt sienna and champagne colors in both of the couple's outfits were absolutely to die for. We can quickly see those colors become a Maharani trend! So amazing. And what about the reception afterward? You can't have a grand bash if the team from Amplifire Entertainment is not involved with the music! So, ladies, time to get those sarees on, open the bottle of wine and hit play below because today's filmy, is an experience not to miss! See you on the dance floor!

If not, then grab a bottle of champagne, call your girlfriends and get comfortable because Steffi & Zeel's filmy is definitely a Bollywood like wedding experience for the books, I tell you that!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met at my store, we had a few common friends but we never spoke/met personally. That was the first time we spoke, exchanged numbers and from that day we had that instant comfort and connection. We did not date each other, as we both were looking for a life partner during that time, so we decided to spend some time together and further decide. Once we were sure about our decision, we told our parents about and they agreed to meet. They met and said YES!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was a mutual decision.

Arlington, VA Indian Fusion Wedding by TLIC Media

Who could think that after meeting in OkCupid, things were going to work out? Lucky for our couple, they were able to keep their eyes open and know where love was. After a year and a half together, they decided to tie the knot and what a celebration that was! So romantic! As we will see in today's film thanks to TLIC Media, both of Jithu & Tyler's backgrounds were represented throughout the gala. The striking and colorful Indian traditions that we all love so much, stole the spotlight the moment Maharani Jithu came out rocking that gorgeous orange sherbet saree. Seriously, Raja Tyler's eyes say it all! Kudos to Styles By Swati - Salon SBS for an amazing hair and makeup work as always! We also know that our couples always want the best for their guests. When you have the catering services of our pals from IndAroma, nothing can go wrong! With a full tummy, it was time to tear the dance floor apart and celebrate the milestone.  Also, if you haven't checked the gorgeous gallery we had on our site just yesterday, you can relive it here! So, ladies, come and celebrate with us by hitting play below and get inspired!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on OKCupid and after a few messages decided to meet up. He knew I loved beer and suggested we meet at a local dive bar but had no idea that he suggested one of my favorite beer bars!
 
We saw each other two more times that same week. By the end of the week, we both knew that we weren't interested in seeing other people.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After almost a year and a half together, Tyler made sure to buy the ring on an auspicious day (generously provided by my mother).
 
Tyler picked up my parents from Dulles Airport after they returned from a trip to India, and asked my very sleepy parents for their blessing. My parents agreed and promptly fell asleep.
 
That night, also an auspicious day, Tyler took me to dinner at a fancy French restaurant, where we had a bit too much wine. Eventually, Tyler popped the question while I immediately broke into sobs. After crying through most of his proposal, I said yes!
 
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.
Venue:
As our guests came from all over the country and from around the world (India, Dubai!). We wanted to give them a very DC experience. We chose Top of the Town for both ceremonies because of the sweeping views of Washington DC. We wanted our day to show great views of DC during the day and have a great rooftop area for the cocktail ceremony and reception.
 
Hair & Makeup:
I found my HMU team on Instagram and booked them immediately! They worked with me to create a modern Tamil bridal look for the morning complete with a fishtail braid covered in red roses and baby’s breath instead of the traditional jasmine flowers. The look for the Christian ceremony was delicate with nude lips and eyes and was transformed to bright eyes and bright pink lips for the reception.
 
Design:
We focused on simple overall designs that favored bright colors and atmosphere over more complex scenery. For this reason, we choose a relatively simple mandap (stage) and oonjal (swing) for the Hindu ceremony, and a simple, but classic, greenery backdrop for the Christian ceremony.
 
Flowers:
Our decor team came through with a wonderful selection of flowers. One of our favorite design elements was the way in which our decorator worked the colorful flowers of the Hindu ceremony into the greenery backdrop of the Christian ceremony and reused them for our centerpieces. It provided great continuity between the ceremonies and helped brighten up the Christian ceremony with just the right amount of color.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We wanted to wear traditional attire for the Hindu and Christian ceremonies and wanted outfits that reflected us for the reception. We traveled up and down the entire US eastern seaboard and coordinated with family in India for our three outfits.
 
For the Hindu ceremony, I wanted to wear a traditional red Kanjeepuram silk saree.  With the help of my aunts and grandmother in India, the red saree was purchased from RMKV silks in Chennai over a 5 am WhatsApp call. Additionally, the saree blouse was custom designed and embroidered with Swarovski crystals in a temple bell design.
 
For the Christian ceremony, I chose a white wedding dress from Amazon after searching through traditional bridal stores and unable to make a final decision. I was drawn to a with lots of tulle and delicate lace details.
 
For the reception, I wanted a bright colored lehenga and selected a yellow lehenga with hot pink details from Ladlee in Atlanta, GA. Not to be outdone, Tyler got a custom made navy blue three-piece Jodhpuri suit from Om Fashion Boutique in Edison, NJ. We received so many compliments on our reception outfits and cannot wait to wear them again.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly, being done with wedding planning was the best part!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the baraat and enjoyed kicking off our wedding with dancing! 
 
Additionally, we planned two surprise dance performances: one with the bride and her friends and one of the bride and groom dancing to lungi dance. Our guests went nuts when they heard lungi dance come on and were up on their feet with us!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The best part of our wedding was seeing our family and friends having a great time! My favorite story was about one of my best friends, Tyler's brothers, and one of my uncles roaming the hotel halls after getting back from a bar at 2 am and being gently scolded by my mother to go to their rooms. It was hilarious and also one of my favorite parts about weddings - bringing people together.
 
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.
We imagined our wedding to be warm, traditional but fusion wedding.  Although we are a modern couple, with all the cultural clashes that come with that, it was important to us that both of our families felt comfortable and represented in our wedding.   
 
Our rehearsal dinner followed this theme and was held at the Le Meridien Arlington’s outdoor taco shack, The Yard. We wanted a terrace space that would encourage our families to move around and interact with each other and a taco shack with picnic tables and lots of standing high tops worked perfectly! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
A wedding planner is a must! They are the professionals and have probably seen it all --late vendors, last-minute changes, the ever-changing seating chart! They are a great source of information and great listeners who can guide you through your vision.
 
Sometimes the details and material items can drive you crazy! Before we got into wedding planning, we wrote down three things we wanted our wedding to be: family, fun, and love. When we were stressing about small details like label placement on envelopes or the design of table toppers, we circled back to the three things we wrote down. It helped ground us and reminded us to focus on the important things.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We wanted to incorporate our two families by having heirloom pieces be a part of wedding. I wore my mother's diamond earrings and my late grandmother's gold belt for the Hindu ceremony. For the Christian ceremony, I had with me the groom's late grandmother's handkerchief embroidered with our wedding date. This helped us weave our families into our day and made it that much sweeter.
