Edmond, OK Indian Wedding by Mir Anwar Studios

Welcome back to your Indian wedding inspiration corner on the web! It is time for a gorgeous feature film that came to us from Oklahoma, and it's this lavish flair that is all things enchanting, to say the least! We know about the obvious visual talent from Mir Anwar Studios, so be sure that today's highlight reel has everything you want out of a grand Indian wedding experience! This couple decided to go with a traditional aesthetic but with a modern touch up. The proof of that is the striking fashion choices these two lovebirds made for the most important day of their lives. So chic and contemporary! The Edmond Hilton Garden Inn was vibing with DJ Riz Entertainment's beats and ambiance as we will see! You know who to call if a celebration for the books is what you seek! Hit play and join Monica & Ricky's path to the aisle, only here, in Maharani Weddings

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He added me to Facebook actually. He sent me the sweetest little message and we never stopped talking after that. We have a lot of mutual friends, and he's friends with my cousins, so we weren't complete strangers, we just had never met before! I knew he was the one when he gave me a James Avery ring that said: "God be with us together and apart" (he's from Houston, I'm from Oklahoma City). 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We have a beautiful video documenting the moment, but here's the story. We were in Austin, TX and it was on a Saturday morning that we got up and went to brunch. After brunch was over, we were walking back to our car and he took my phone and stopped me at a car with a driver waiting outside. He kissed me goodbye and the driver drove me off and handed me a letter. Letter 1 told me that I was going to get a Mani/Pedi. Once I got there and got everything done, the receptionist hands me letter 2, which told me where to meet the driver. Once I got in the car, he hands me letter 3, which tells me I'll be dropped off at a hotel and which room I'd be in. I walk into the room and there were candles and rose petals everywhere. On the bed was a complete outfit, and everything I needed to get ready, including my favorite dessert- also, letter 4. Letter 4 told me what time to be ready and where I'd be going. I'm driven to a beautiful mansion on a cliff overlooking Lake Travis and when I step out of the car, I hear violins playing our song, and I start walking towards the balcony, and my future husband was standing there waiting for me. It doesn't just end there. After he proposed, our parents and siblings came outside to greet us! We then headed to have dinner with them and when we got there, all of my cousins and our friends were there waiting there ready to celebrate. IT WAS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE. 
 
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 had documents of pictures and descriptions for everything. My husband and I are both very organized people, so we made the best team when it came down to planning our wedding. We researched every vendor before deciding on them and we don't regret it. We loved every single person we worked with. They were all so amazing. It was a lot of hard work, but in the end, it was worth it. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My wedding dress was the very first one I tried on! I tried on quite a few afterward, just to say that I did, but I knew the first dress was the one!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Food/cake/drink tasting! Hands down the best part. It was delicious, stress-free and a great way to take a break from all the other craziness. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our reception and after-party. Everyone was just ready to celebrate and have fun and you could feel that in the room. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that constantly replays in my mind was right after the ceremony, our coordinators rushed us into a private room so that we could have 10 min alone together to let everything sink in before we were in a sea of people again. I appreciated that so so much. It was such a necessary and beautiful moment that I got to share with just my husband. 
 
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 really cared about how much fun our guests were going to have, so everything was geared to making our day run smoothly so that everyone would be able to enjoy the day. We had a huge party bus for our bridal party, but we also included their significant others on that bus so that we could all enjoy those moments together. We had a few hotel rooms for our other friends to hang out in before the reception. The groomsmen had an amazing entrance to our reception that everyone definitely enjoyed. We played an interactive game at the reception and since Ricky went to UT and I went to OU, there was this big rivalry going throughout the evening, which was pretty fun.  We also had an after-party in one of the conference rooms across from the reception hall where about 150 of our friends/family continued to celebrate, which was so much fun. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Google docs are your best friends. Organize everything you can think of in each tab. It'll make it easier for you, your fiance and your vendors to visualize and keep track of.

Philadelphia, PA Indian Fusion Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Welcome back, Maharanis! Time for a brand new Indian wedding filmy and this one comes from Philadelphia! Our couple of the day? Preeti & Jerry, and this is how their happily ever after began. The Hilton Philadelphia at Penns Landing was the venue chosen for the galas and the couple couldn't have made a better choice. The exclusivity and elegance of it made it the perfect place for the bash, strikingly planned and designed by none other than Elegant Events Planning & Design. As we will see, it was filled to the brim with details and beautiful setups that had us sighing the entire time! Be sure, ladies, that lots and lots of ideas are to bee seen on this one. This cinematic experience comes to us thanks to our friends from Lightyear Studio, who as always, come up with some of the best visual treats around. So without further ado, let us get to the images! Don't miss them!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Jerry and I met at work - we were coworkers (same department, different teams) and he sat right next to me. I still recall trying to be friendly with him on his first day, answering the various questions he had, and getting him settled in. In return, he made fun of me and was extremely sassy. I distinctly remember thinking, "This new hire is ridiculous. I can't believe he has the audacity to act like that." However, we started becoming really good friends as the days and weeks went by. We had a really tight friend circle with our co-workers and would constantly hang out after work and over the weekend.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I really like escape rooms and puzzles so Jerry devised an elaborate puzzle scavenger hunt for me and said it was my birthday gift. I woke up to a dossier outside the bedroom door complete with an absurd premise (he was a secret agent and was captured by an evil organization), a time limit in which to save him, and a series of instructions (rules, clothes I should wear for the scavenger hunt, tools I'd need, and a granola bar for energy). I spent the morning running around the house, finding and solving puzzles while our housemates were secreting texting Jerry with updates on my progress. After I deciphered the clues, I learned I had to drive to the office where we originally met. When I arrived, I found Jerry - he had a GoPro attached to his head and was handcuffed to a tree (apparently the villains decided just to leave him there). He convinced me to believe I missed a clue that revealed the location of the handcuff keys so I turned my attention away from him to look for them in my car trunk. When I couldn't find it, I spun back around only to find him kneeling with a ring box in his hand. I said yes. Then I told him I had accidentally found the receipt and certificate for the ring while rummaging for clues. He was (and still is) mortified.
 
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.
Jerry and I essentially treated this like a project. We had weekly meetings with each other (Wedding Wednesdays), our parents, and frequent check-ins with all the vendors. We had spreadsheets, timelines, milestones, deliverables, etc. and made sure we started as soon as possible to give us enough runway to "deliver" on our Wedding. We took it upon ourselves to divvy up the work as "fairly" as possible (Jerry took food, I took decorations, etc) but we would always look to get feedback from the other before signing off on anything. There were definitely things that we struggled with - finding multiple venues large enough to host an Indian wedding, figuring out dates, hedging our bets with the weather, etc. Luckily, Jerry and I were aligned on most of the big decisions and all the partners we worked with had previously done Indian weddings (one of them also had experience with Indian/Chinese weddings). We ended up having a Chinese-themed Sangeet, Indian-themed ceremony, and western-themed reception. We wore Chinese outfits on Friday (I had a Qi Pao), traditional Indian outfits for the Ceremony, and INDO/Western during the reception. We were also very lucky that my cousin Kavan is an extremely talented designer (https://www.instagram.com/kavanshahdesignstudio/). He helped pick out the color schemes, provided guidance on our outfits, and essentially consulted us with his designer eye every step of the way. We're so grateful to have had someone like him help us out!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Every now and then, we would take a step back to a holistic view of everything. I think it was great practice as it gave us a sense of progress. The sense of accomplishment we got, seeing everything slowly coming together, was extremely gratifying. It allowed us to stop worrying about the granular details (if only for a moment!).
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
It's so hard to pick just one thing! The guests that had been to an Indian wedding were in awe of the Chinese themed decorations, party favors, and food (Sangeet was Chinese themed). Most of Jerry's side had never been to an Indian wedding and they were overwhelmed with everything that was happening. Some of his uncles and aunts keep telling us that our wedding was "the very best party they've ever had in their lives." Oh - and our priest was phenomenal! Not only was he charismatic and funny, but he also made it a point to draw parallels to other religions and cultures throughout the ceremony, while keeping it short for an Indian ceremony. We received many compliments about him even from my relatives from India!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Definitely the Ganth Bhandan (tying of the knot) - Jerry forgot that his dupatta was tied to my dupatta and almost dragged me off the stage on accident when he was moving something off the stage.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Plan early, meet often and communicate clearly. Be grateful for any support your friends and family may offer you. Speak your mind with cordial professionalism. And, above all else, remember to have fun! There will come a point where there's nothing you can do to change or control things (endgame, as my husband called it). You've planned to the best of your abilities, completed your checklists, and even prayed for gorgeous weather. Let the chips fall where they may, grab a drink, and enjoy the ride!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
All of our caters did a wonderful job - the food was amazing and it was really exciting to watch our relatives try different ethnically authentic foods for the first time (Chinese provided by Sang Kee Sangeet night, Moghul for Indian Ceremony day and 5-Chefs brought Indo-Chinese to the reception). Cesaphe Vie also provided a plethora of hors d'oeuvres for our cocktail hour. Also, our cake provided by Cesaphe was an amazing sight - it was decorated one side to have each layer represent our individual hobby while the other side was an amazing red cherry blossom. Our guests did not leave any event hungry! Everyone we worked with also did an extraordinary job - Beautiful Brides was able to provide amazing hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids, Lightyear Studio shot stunning photos and footage, Elegant Events made our venues look amazing, DJ Ravi got the crowd pumped with Indian/Chinese/American music.
