New York, NY Contemporary Fusion Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Happy Wednesday, ladies! The filmy time of the day is here, so get ready to be amazed by all the beauty surrounding Christine & Sanjay's fusion wedding extravaganza. If the name of this lovely couple sounds familiar, that's because their wedding already featured in this beautiful gallery thanks to the fantastic shots captured by Peter Nguyen Studio. And you all loved it so much that we couldn't wait to share the cinematographic delight also captured by Peter Nguyen Studio. So without further ado, let's jump right into it! Thoroughly planned and executed by Bells N Rings Events, this life-changing event seemed like taken out from a fairytale. From the Catholic wedding ceremony hosted at the Holy Name of Jesus-St Gregory the Great Parish to the grand reception party celebrated at the Conrad New York, this entire event was a cornucopia of beauty, mixed emotions, and flair. And you already know how much we love fusion weddings, and this one had everything we love and so much more! Although there was so much beauty to admire, it was our lovely Christine who stole all the looks donning gorgeous and fashionable attires from Calla Blanche, Jacky Tai, Shree Designer Saree, and Harleen Kaur. But that is not all! She crowned her ravishing look, trusting her beauty needs to Aleetha Clanton and The Glass Slipper Wedding, who glamorized her in full, making her look like a goddess! If you don't want to miss any detail of this lovely event, wait no more, hit the play icon below, and get ready to dive into this real-life fairytale. We are sure you are going to love it so much!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met when I moved from California to NYC to go to pharmacy school and Sanjay was in medical school. We started off as friends and study partners before we began dating but both focused on our career and life goals. I’m a bit of a wild card... but I knew he was the one when I realized that he would never try to change me or expect me to fit the mold of what a wife is supposed to be. Sanjay lets me be exactly who I am and doesn’t allow any perceived gender roles, the expectations of society or the patriarchy, or what anyone else thinks to influence who I am or who I want to be. It’s a priceless thing to be loved, wanted and accepted for exactly who you are and nothing less. I never thought of myself as the marrying kind... but Sanjay’s the kinda guy you wanna marry. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Planning to propose to Christine was the easy part, but executing the surprise while avoiding Christine’s nosy ability to sniff out secrets was the hard part. With the help of family, friends, and Christine’s best doggo, Zipper, Sanjay set up a fake engagement photo shoot for Caroline and Chan using Christine’s role as Caroline’s bridesmaid as the perfect excuse. It worked! The girls spent the previous day getting dolled up and bonding and Christine suspected nothing. On the day of the photo shoot, everyone arrived in his or her preplanned places and the photo shoot got underway. Several shots in, the photographer poses Christine with Sanjay, who suddenly gets down on one knee… and with perfect timing, Zipper trots over with a sign reading “Mom, we love the big guy, can we keep him?” Christine says “YES!” and the couple finishes off a stunning sunset proposal photo shoot. Afterwards, they arrive home to a surprise backyard BBQ engagement party with family and friends and catering from Christine's favorite Taco Lady.
 
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.
It was important for us to incorporate both our cultures (Indian and Vietnamese) and religions (Hindu and Catholic) into our wedding. We also have a very diverse group of family and friends, so we wanted to be able to partake in and feel included in our ceremonies, events, food, and music. We hired an amazing wedding planner (Meghna from Bells N Rings) who helped us hand pick each vendor, our venue, and our caterer. The food was beyond amazing (with enough delicious variety to satisfy our every diet) and the music had everyone on the dance floor. We were the first wedding at The Conrad to close down a small street in NYC for a Baraat and LeighAnne, our coordinator helped make every single detail a dream come true. I had four outfit changes for each event (Calle Blanche - white wedding dress for the Catholic ceremony, Jacky Tai - Vietnamese ao dai for the Tea ceremony, ShreeDesignerSaree - lengha for Hindu ceremony, and Harleen Kaur - reception dress). Meghna did an amazing job helping to coordinate all the bride’s side of the family flying in from California and made it work with the groom’s side of the family, who is originally from New York. It was a lot of work but worth every bit of planning to have all our family and friends share our day with us. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I used Instagram and word of mouth recommendation from friends to help narrow down the style and look for the Hindu ceremony lengha and Catholic ceremony white wedding dress. I knew the Catholic ceremony dress would be traditional white and I went with Calle Blanche because I love their aesthetic (graceful, smooth lines with intricate beadwork and illusion lace). I selected ShreeDesignerSaree because they worked closely with me to customize my style preferences and bring the dress I imagined to life.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was combining all our cultures and traditions and creating a four day wedding weekend that we shared with our family and friends... and most importantly, learning more about each other and our cultures and religions while creating a space where all our guests could learn about our backgrounds and each feel included throughout our union and celebration.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Hands down, the food and the music. Everyone (regardless of diet: vegetarians, omnivores, religious restrictions, etc)  raved about the food. The music reflected our diverse tastes: from Bollywood to Bachata to old school hip hop to current pop singles, everyone hit the dance floor and stayed there. We still have guests who can’t stop talking about both. We have already recommended both our caterer and our music/media team to several friends for their current engagement planning.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first looks. We were lucky enough to have three, one prior to the Catholic ceremony, another prior to the Vietnamese Tea ceremony, and the last one prior to the Hindu ceremony. Each time was emotional and unique. We were married three times in three different ceremonies over the weekend... I think we are probably the most married couple of all time!
 
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.
The Catholic ceremony theme was moody jewel tones. I had 10 bridesmaids (BriMas) and allowed them each to pick their own dresses and shoes in whatever style and material was most flattering to each. All of my BriMas were a rainbow of different backgrounds, skin color, sizes and all held a unique place in my heart. I wanted their outfits to reflect that. Some wore velvet or lace or sequins but each stood out. The color theme fit well as we were married at The Parish of the Holy Name of Jesus-St Gregory the Great and it had a very beautiful dark Gothic Revival/Medieval architecture to it. This theme carried into all our events which allowed our wedding party their choice of outfit style. Our entire wedding theme embraced the darker, moodier colors of autumn which we felt were more representative of the taste of the bride and groom. Our wedding party choreographed dances that wowed us and all our guests.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Stay true to yourselves. Planning a wedding is stressful enough as it is, and trying to blend and balance two different and uniquely special cultures and religions made it even more so (especially with family expectations!) It’s fine to listen to everyone but at the end of the day, it’s YOUR (bride and groom) choice, so do what feels right for you. Also, it really helped having an amazing wedding planner who volunteered to be our buffer for times when we had to say no (sorry mom, the wedding planner says that’s just not logistically possible!)
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Wedding jewelry was gifted to the bride from her family... with the exception of the mangal sutra, which the groom designed and created with a jeweler into something simple yet elegant to suit the bride’s tastes so that his bride could wear it everyday. It is a gold lotus flower suspended between the mangal sutra beads (detail pictures available). The bridal mehndi was done on Wednesday night to allow full color maturation while the mehndi night was open to friends of the bride and groom so everyone (all ages, male/female, etc) could share in the unique custom. And so the bride could spend time with friends and family instead of tied to one place getting the bridal henna done. The food was deigned with the bride and groom and the caterer, Chef Anand, from scratch and included both Indian and Vietnamese cuisine as well as others (ie: a taco bar because the bride grew up eating lots of Mexican food in California). Make up and hair choices as well as outfits of each bridesmaid and groomsmen were unique to each person’s preferences to further embrace and emphasize our diversity and shared appreciation for each other. We carefully selected our officiants to further this goal. Both the Catholic and Hindu ceremony made the effort to explain every step of the ceremony by the pandit and priest to help our guests understand and learn a little bit about the background of the bride and groom.
 

Stick around for part two!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We actually met on a south Asian dating app called dil mil. It's funny that he knew he was going to marry me after our first date which I learned after the fact. I knew he was the one after a few months when we had watched an emotional Bollywood movie, Neerja. I had asked myself if I could ever imagine my life without him and the answer was no. That night I asked him to "define" whatever we had and I told him how I felt about him and said "I love you" first.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was actually in Los Angeles for American Academy of Neurology conference for poster presentation. We both love to travel and he proposed the idea that he would come down and hang out with me for few days while I'm there attending the conference. He supposedly "planned" fancy dinner in Malibu and gets me all dressed. When he are driving down route one with this beautiful scenery, he tells me we are little early. It was sunset time, and gets me to go on the matador beach. I was little scared on the hill and was refusing to go down but he insisted and said "I would carry you down because it's beautiful there." As I'm walking down and come closer I hear my favorite song being played on the violin, "kabhi kabhi" and he started singing it. And the rest was history.
 
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 pretty much did planning ourselves. We knew we didn't want everything to be super traditional. We had attending weddings at our venue before and I had visioned my wedding there from the beginning. We looked around other venues but something that made me feel part of the natural and beautiful outdoor scenery I could not find better than this venue. I actually booked my hair and makeup person about 2 months prior to the wedding. It was a struggle between keeping it good and cost-effective. And luckily I found the perfect people who did an amazing job. Decoration wise, we both knew we wanted a floral theme and had a particular color scheme in mind. But my biggest thing was westeria for the mandap. And it turned out great. Ad to other details, it was more of my project as Jay was busy taking care of bigger projects. Ranging from finding last-minute cost effective parasol umbrellas to fruit snack and program fans was something that took time but made it happen in last 2 and half weeks. Luckily it all worked out. And my husband wanted those ice pops after hot sweaty baraat so we made that happen. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I love red. But I wanted some non-traditional. I knew I was not going to do red. I went back to surat, Gujarat, India where I was born. The first day and first shop, the third dress I said this is it. It was one of their designer dress that I could actually wear in a routine as well. It was so elegant simple yet gave a glamorous look. When I put it on, we all knew that was the dress. I went in thinking i was going to wear pistachio color and ended wearing beige. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the best part was choosing the details because that's where I could let my creativity and vision become alive. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved every detailed about the wedding whether it's ranging from their welcome bags to welcomes to our epic nontraditional helicopter vidai. But the best part they loved was food, music, and our heartfelt welcome. We really could be more joyful if not for their presence and blessings.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I first walked down during our wedding ceremony and set down and that feeling of joy that I got expressed with overwhelming tears that I could not control is something I could never forget. 
 
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 our Garba one week prior for which we had left the decoration last minute. We luckily found the decorators who made it happen in less than 2 weeks notice and the indo yet western-style we wanted. Ranging from swing to traditional umbrella to photo booth with a bicycle. My husband is a great dancer and for reception, we both had surprise dances planned for each other. Him and his groomsmen did an amazing dance. I had done solor and couple group dances but surprised him with my family flashmob which included my siblings, parents, uncles and aunts and cousins a s friends. For the reception, we wanted more nontraditional decoration style for the backdrop and with floral theme and it worked out great. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process. It takes a long time to plan and coordinate everything but it is absolutely amazing in the end and it is worth every bit.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I absolutely love mt.mehndi. it told a story. I had NY/Brooklyn skyline on one hand and surat skyline on the other which said where both of us were from. I also had a logo of Dil mil app without an initial date. And not he other side I had stethoscope and calculator representing our careers. And on each palm had bride and groom. I also had our hashtag and wedding date. His name, which he still cant find. I absolutely loved our venue backdrop. It was an outdoor wedding with a mountain backdrop and it was amazing. I decided to keep simple but elegant jewelry and it was perfectly matching to the border of my dress and Jay's clothes. I did not want to do bouquet as I had made a wooden headpiece for my brothers to hold during my entrance that was decorated with flowers. Couldn't have been more thankful to my brother for staying up late 2 days before the wedding to make it possible.
 
Please come back tomorrow, as we have something special prepared for you!
