Lafayette Hill, PA Indian Wedding by Naina Digital Studio

Remember Payal & Ravish's stunning gala from Lafayette Hill? We know you do, but in case you would like to relive once again the gorgeous picture gallery brought to us by Priyanca Rao Photography, you can browse through it here. Today, and thanks to Naina Digital Studio, we have the lovely highlight reel of everything that went on for the most important day of their lives. The Chubb Hotel & Conference Center was at its very best to house both the ceremony and reception, beautifully planned and designed by none other than the team from Shayosa Events, of course! So amazing! But what really took our breath away, was Maharani Payal's dazzling taste in terms of style, fashion, and color. And what about that heavenly makeup design by SV Bridal Concepts by Sanjana Vaswani? Sophistication to its finest, to say the least! What might be needed to keep everyone having the time of their lives, you might ask. Well... the culinary wonders of Chand Palace, that's what! They managed to bring the best dishes around to provide the necessary energy for such a huge bash! So, ladies, you can't miss this! Hit play below for all the details!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ravish on Dil Mil in June 2017, he had a witty Seinfeld quote which made me smile, so I swiped right!
 
I was falling for Ravish pretty early on in our relationship. I was able to genuinely be myself around him. I knew he was the one for me when we took a ski trip together and I caught the flu while there. He took care of me in every possible way by being by my side, bringing me food, keeping me comfortable, picking up my meds and constantly checking up on me. It was then, I knew that I truly loved him and that I see myself with him forever.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ravish and I decided to go to Montreal in October 2018. He had a whole weekend planned with exploring the city. I anticipated there may be a proposal in the planning however he told me before the trip that the ring isn't ready and so I didn't think anything of it thereafter. On Saturday morning, we had brunch at the Maggie Oakes.
Then we went up to Mont Royal, it's a park that overlooks the city of Montreal. Since it was October the view of fall trees was spectacular. After a few minutes of walking around and taking pictures. Ravish said let me take a picture of you overlooking the city and when I turned around he was down on his knee. I was surprised and elated.
 
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.
I loved planning my wedding. Our venue was breathtakingly beautiful. The ballroom was rustic with exposed brick and high beams and had tall windows along the side to bring in the natural light. It was important to me to have a ballroom that was open and inviting and I want to stay away from hotel ballrooms. Our venue, however, was not a full-service venue, which meant we had to rent china, hire staff and all the necessary linens as well. The venue worked with us to help manage all the necessary items our decorator, Nisha Shah from Lax States was beyond helpful. She brought my vision of having an open, mandap setup to life.  Nisha has a very unique way of ensuring the set up resembles the bride and groom's personality along with their outfits. Our wedding outfits were perfectly coordinated with how the mandap was set up as well as our reception stage.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I love my outfit. The dress made me smile all day. I met with a custom designer, Nikita Ravi Khimani who my mom had previously worked with. I showed her two outfits that I liked and I wanted a blend of them. I knew I wanted light pink and green in my outfit and stay away from the traditional color red. Nikita was able to design and provide a sketch of the design and a sample within a week. She was able to bring my vision to life.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Ravish and I took professional dance lessons for our first dance and it was great to practice with each other. We danced to Nazm Nazm from Bareilly Ki Barfi.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests loved the venue we chose, it was a golf course with a beautiful landscape and we were blessed with the perfect weather.
Ravish helped me a lot through the planning process - he was in charge of food and music. All our guests loved the food and dance-off we had at the reception.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look, my walk down the aisle, my dance with my dad and our first dance. 
 
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 families were so excited for our wedding. At Garba, we had 8 performances filled with my parents, my siblings, my cousins and nieces, and nephews. Ravish's family did a whole family dance and a cousin's dance.
One of the most memorable dances was seeing my Mom's and Dad's siblings do a couple dance to all the old songs such as Ude Jab Jab Zulfen Teri from Naya Daur, Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye from Jurm
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Savor every single moment of your day. You get one day to be a celebrity. Take a moment with your partner during the reception to take in all the people that are in the room that love you.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndi - Aarti was very creative. Ravish's favorite soccer team is Manchester United and I had asked Aarti to incorporate this logo on to my Mehndi. Ravish was so happy to see this.
 
Cake was a hit at our wedding. Aarti from AMR Catering was amazing. We had 2 different layers (one of the layers - Vanilla Cake - with Mango Curd and mango Icing, another layer - Raspberry Cake with thin Raspberry Compote and Raspberry Rosewater Icing.

New York, NY Indian Wedding by Studio KSD

If there is a word to describe the city of New York, that would be "mystic". There is always something going on in every corner, so much that a sensory overload will definitely happen if you happen to be wandering around its streets! Today, we will focus on one single event that has us completely sighing. Puja & Saad's incredibly luxurious and elegant gala was everything you want out of an Indian style celebration, and of course, we know that there is nothing greater than a wedding! Our talented friends from Studio KSD have for us a film that, as we will see, showcases everything that went on for our couple's day of magic. The stunning bride took the Maharani style up a notch and came out looking out of this world. Flawless Beauty by Pauline in the hair & makeup department and Mehndikalogie with the Mehndi design, were the absolute glam dream team of the night. Their striking work made our Maharani even more beautiful! This bash is a total dream so be sure not to miss it, ladies! Also, don't forget to check us out because if today's filmy left you wanting for more, just wait for the picture gallery from our friends from Salwa Photography! Drop-dead gorgeous!

   

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband, Saad, and I met when we were students at Cornell Law School. As a first-year student, I attended the school’s South Asian Law Students Association’s orientation meeting. That was the first time I met Saad, a second-year student, and co-President of the organization. But, we left the meeting as acquaintances after barely saying a word to one another. Our second meeting was similar—months later, we encountered each other by chance in our apartment complex and learned that we were neighbors. Even though the signs were there, we still did not connect until we attended a South Asian Law Students conference in New York City months later. Somewhere over bonding about our shared cultural identity and penchant for the law, we became friends. Over the next four years, we grew from friends to best friends. Even after Saad moved to New York City to begin work, we kept in touch daily. Upon my graduation the following year, I also moved to New York. Once reunited, Saad and I enjoyed exploring the city, laughing while reminiscing about our law school days, and discussing our careers over dinner and Broadway shows. Still, despite our shared South Asian American identities, we never considered each other as life partners because of our differing religious backgrounds. 
 
All of that changed on my 26th birthday. With Saad’s help, I threw a birthday party. Unbeknownst to Saad, I even invited two of my girlfriends, who practice the same faith as Saad, thinking that they might hit it off with him. As the party began to wind down, at the end of the evening I asked my friends what they thought about Saad and if they had gotten his phone number. They said: “He seems like a great guy. But Puja, he’s in love with YOU.” At that moment, my mind began to race. I spent the after-party thinking more and more about it, and finally, when I could not hold it back, I told Saad that maybe there was something more between us. We spent the next month talking about how our relationship could materialize despite our different religions. We soon realized that we could not imagine a world where we were not together, and our relationship turned into a whirlwind romance.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After two years together, Saad planned a surprise proposal. He told me to prepare for a vacation to an unknown destination and to pack some dresses and heels he had bought me for our dating anniversary. The day before we departed for our vacation, Saad gave me a hint—a Venus Et Fleur flower arrangement. I guessed correctly that we were headed to France, but little did I know what else that meant! Once in Paris, Saad told me to be prepared for an early start the next day. The following morning, at 7 am, Saad told me he was taking me for a tour of the Palace of Versailles. When we reached the Palace, Saad directed me towards the Palace gardens. We both took in the serenity and vastness of the gardens as we were the only two people present so early in the morning. It felt like we were royalty walking through our garden.
 
Saad directed me towards a secluded area of the garden for the proposal. As a historical romance novel enthusiast, I had read descriptions of this garden, Bosquet de L’Encelade. Even though I suspected Saad was going to propose, I was so enamored by the garden that I began to wander until Saad was able to pull me into a corner and kneel on one knee to cap the fairy-tale moment!
 
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.
Saad and I knew that we wanted to have a traditional South Asian wedding to pay homage to our shared culture. But, we also wanted to get married in New York City, where our relationship began. So, we decided to select a venue that would have city views during our nuptials and allow for Saad to parade to the venue on a white horse in his Baraat, a traditional welcoming procession led by the groom. We selected the Mandarin Oriental due to its floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing Central Park and the New York City skyline, and we decided to have our Baraat in Columbus Circle. Though we decided to have a smaller than a typical wedding for a South Asian wedding of 120 guests, we turned to Sonal J Shah to assist with coordinating our events because they spanned multiple days. We also selected Atlas Floral to execute our selected color palette for the Hindu wedding ceremony of traditional gold combined with a modern twist of 100s of real blush pink roses and hanging crystals. For the reception, we opted for an elegant and glamorous touch with a real rose and crystal-filled ceiling, custom bars with floating candles, a white dance floor with our initials in gold, and a custom-made stage with a backdrop of hanging flowers and candles.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
To keep in line with our vision for a traditional South Asian wedding, for my wedding ceremony outfit, I knew I wanted to get married in a classic red Sabyasachi Mukherjee wedding lengha. His designs provide old-world glamour reminiscent of the richness of our shared motherland, pre-colonial South Asia, during a time when maharanis and rajas held court and festive soirées. Accordingly, my mother and I spent two weeks in Mumbai during which time we selected not only my lengha from Sabyasachi Mumbai, but also my wedding jewelry with uncut diamonds and emeralds from Tanishq, and my wedding shoes from the Sabyasachi collaboration with Christian Louboutin. Moreover, we worked with Vanshik to custom make Saad's cream and silver sherwani, Saffo (headpiece), and shoes.
 
For the reception, I knew that I wanted to wear a modern ballgown. I turned to Manish Malhotra, who is at the forefront of creating modern Bollywood ensembles. I ultimately selected a two-piece champagne-ivory lengha with a tulle bottom and hanging Swarovski crystals that Manish Malhotra custom made for me into a one piece floor-length ballgown.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
To me, the most enjoyable part of the planning process was selecting our outfits. Because all of my family, on both of my parents' sides, lives in America, I never had the opportunity as a child or young adult of traveling to India frequently or updating my South Asian clothing wardrobe. So, our wedding was my chance to actually visit India and source my own outfits that I had pictured in my head for years! My mother and I experienced Mumbai together for the first time, and though it was overwhelming, we spent two weeks carefully selecting pieces for myself, Saad, my sister, and my father. The results speak for themselves, and we are so proud we were able to pull it off!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
One of the best moments of our wedding was the Baraat. We received permits to shut down Columbus Circle so our guests and Saad could enjoy the Baraat uninterrupted. It was such a unique experience for our guests to party on the streets of Manhattan! Saad says that it was surreal riding a white horse through the middle of the city on his way to get married.
 
Our reception was also something guests were blown away by. Saad and I revealed no details to our guests at all about the color palette, let alone the 100s of real hanging roses that we had directed be suspended from the ceiling. When the doors opened to the reception, our guests were just in awe.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
In the months leading up to our wedding, we learned a great deal about our religions’ wedding practices. One would assume incorporating divergent practices would be difficult. But for me, this actually made me fall in love with Saad even more. During our initial meeting with the Hindu priest, Saad listened so intently that he remembered on our Hindu wedding day that the end of our final phera (circle around the fire), Hindu superstition says whoever sits down first after completing the phera rules the household. On our wedding day, I completely forgot about the game! So, at the end of the phera, Saad waited for me to sit down first and "win." Because of moments like this that, when we reminisce about our wedding, we are filled with a sense of completeness—we had a picture-perfect traditional South Asian wedding in the city where we fell in love and we married as best friends. It was truly the wedding of our dreams.
 
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 our sangeet and Garba, we opted to charter the Atlantica Yacht and circle the Statue of Liberty as we danced the night away.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Have a vision and stick to it! I think it is so easy to be influenced by what you see on social media or blogs. While it is important to source these channels in order to come up with a vision, once the vision is created, I think it is important to stick to it, even if it may seem difficult at times. For me, I had a very clear color palate selected for my bridesmaids, and even when it was difficult to find that color, I still stick with it and ultimately found what I needed. That being said, I think it is also important to change your vision if needed. I realized peonies were going to be difficult to source the time of year we had our wedding, so I decided to use other flowers instead.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
For my henna I decided to combine our South Asian culture, New York, and our jobs as attorneys. I had the scales of justice and a gavel drawn alongside a maharani and maharaja and the New York City skyline. I also included the Eiffel Tower, where we took our engagement photos, and a peacock, the national bird of India.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in college in 2012 at the dorm we both stayed at. I knew he was the one in May 2016 when we took our graduation trip to Chicago.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I planned a trip to LA with my cousin and a few friends. We were departing from Dallas Love Field at 6 am and little did I know Sunny was also departing from DFW Airport that same morning to surprise me in LA. We got to the room to freshen up and my cousin went downstairs to “make a call.” To my surprise, he came back upstairs with Sunny!! I was so happy for him to be there. Then we went to Griffith Observatory to see the view of the LA skyline. As I was admiring the view, Sunny was behind me preparing to propose. When I turned around, I saw him on one knee and he asked me to marry him. Of course I said YES!!!
 
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the A. Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Overall, the planning went smoothly. Of course, there were bound to be some hiccups; but, with the vendors I chose, there was no reason for me to worry.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I sketched it out and had a designer make it in Delhi.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My favorite part was decor because it’s the part where you get to see your dream wedding come to life with all the colors, props, and elegance.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved dancing and how amazing everything was planned and coordinated.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
After the priest pronounced Sunny and me husband and wife, Sunny gave me a kiss on the forehead. He is not exactly the most affectionate so for him to do that in front of 1,000 people must’ve been hard but it was the sweetest gesture.
 
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.
Everything was exactly the way I have always pictured it. Wouldn’t change a thing!!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try your best not to stress. Enjoy every moment because it’s not going to come back.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, A. mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My henna had the London and Windsor skylines as he was born in Canada and I was born in England. The henna also had UTA written in it as that is where we met.
