Philadelphia, PA Indian Wedding by The Santos and Co

Welcome back, ladies! The filmy time of the day is here, and as always, we are back with a shot of inspiration just for you. Today we are about to unveil the beauty surrounding Nikhita & Nand's wedding festivities. To begin this journey, we would like to take you to the exclusive Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia, the ideal venue that hosted the spectacular wedding ceremony, and the unforgettable reception. Diwan by Design orchestrated every single detail of this wedding, making sure to accomplish every desire and to bring our lovely duo's vision to reality. I want to highlight the marvelous natural beauty that our gorgeous Maharani showcased the entire time. She trusted her beauty needs to the expertise of Cinderella Bridez, who created a ravishing look for her. Just splendid! And we can't forget to mention the beautiful Mehndi art designed by Henna by Jinal. Just marvelous! You will witness how every single guest enjoyed every part of this phenomenal event, like the delicious food served by Moghul Caterers, the sweet cake baked by Cake Life Bake Shop, and the floral arrangements by Wedding Design and Décor. Not to mention the phenomenal music played by DJ Sunny Entertainment, that along with Sangeet Entertainment and the live music from Ryan Tennis Music, turned this gala into a real party. You can enjoy the visual masterpiece created by The Santos and Co below. And if this is not enough, you can also admire their talent in today's gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Nand and I met 7 years ago on a dating app and started our relationship with 300 miles between us. We first met in a café half way between our NJ homes. This was just the beginning of a long series of dates during the summer of 2013 through which we got to know each other while Nand was in medical school in NYC and I was a fresh college graduate working in health policy. I fell for Nand's thoughtfulness, sharp mind, and serious drumming skills.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After 4 years of long distance, we moved in together to a cozy apartment in the heart of Boston. Nand proposed soon after in Princeton where we spent many formative moments of our relationship and I excitedly said yes! The beautiful proposal was followed by a sweet surprise dinner with all of the people we love the most - our parents, siblings, and grandparents. The ring is a simple, chic, personalized relic from, NYC-based jeweler, Zameer Kassam, who worked with Nand to integrate pieces of our love story into the ring itself. ZK also designed and customized our wedding bands.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved Nand's Broad Street Baraat! We shut down a city block outside of Philadelphia City Hall (S. Broad Street) for the Baraat - everyone loved seeing Nand on a horse and dancing to beats by dholi Nihaal Singh and DJ Raj Minocha.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Nand surprised me with a live band who played through our cocktail hour. Halfway through their set, Nand hopped on the drums and played two special songs with them. He's so talented and I'm his biggest fan!! Our guests loved hearing Nand play and so did I!
 
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 Sangeet was pretty epic- it was held on the top floor of high rise building with gorgeous view of Philly! I wanted the Sangeet to have a super modern/city vibe so we went with neutrals (white/cream/gold) as opposed to the traditional bright colors. I wore a navy blue lengha designed by my mom and Nand wore a navy blue bandh gala.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The most memorable part of our wedding was being surrounded by our closest friends and family members who came from near and far to celebrate our love. It's easy to get bogged down in the details of wedding planning so we tried to remind ourselves of the big picture! You're marrying the love of your life and that's what matters the most!

If we inspire you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. So visit us by then!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ashish first expressed his feelings to me at a secluded garden on Georgia Tech's campus (where we went to college) in 2011, and he knew that same spot would be the best, most sentimental location to pop the big question. He asked my parents for their blessing, and they were overjoyed! To plan the proposal, Ashish worked closely with my brother, Rohan. As a current student at Georgia Tech, Rohan convinced me that he had an event on campus on December 16, 2017 (the day of the proposal) that he wanted the whole family to be present for. On the day of the proposal, Ashish pretended to be at work, texting me throughout the day about what a busy day he was having there. In reality, he was working with Rohan, his sister and brother-in-law to intricately decorate and set up the proposal spot with rose petals, candles, lanterns, and of course, champagne. As I arrived on campus expecting Rohan's supposed "event", I was shocked to see Ashish waiting for me instead. I immediately started crying tears of joy, and Ashish took my hand and walked me to the garden. He had hired a photographer and a violinist who played some of our favorite romantic songs. He asked me to dance as we reminisced about our past 6 and a half years together. Then, Ashish got down on one knee and proposed. It was the easiest question I ever had to answer! We joined our families for a special dinner afterwards.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Choosing a bridal lengha is a big deal - it's part of all of your pictures, videos and memories! I was fortunate to have so much help from my mom with all of our wedding planning, including my outfits. She has an amazing eye and my taste emulates hers. I had been talking to a few designers, but nothing stood out to me as "the one". I knew I wanted red with green accents, and I wanted a design that felt modern but had traditional elements. During our search, Mom came across Chamee & Palak, a boutique in Mumbai, and I worked with them through WhatsApp and over the phone to design my dream wedding lengha (as well as three other outfits for my other events), customized to my preferences and size. They were amazing to work with, and my outfits were beyond my imagination. I loved that my wedding lengha was red, had green detail, and also featured a pink ruffle at the bottom that felt like a unique, slightly playful touch. I still look back at our wedding pictures feeling so grateful to have worn the outfit of my dreams!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I'm not going to lie - food and cake tasting were both mine and my husband's most enjoyable parts of the planning process! It was so fun bringing our families along and getting to try rich, delicious food and cake. I went on a semi-diet before the wedding, so I welcomed the excuse to indulge. Also, many components of wedding planning can be stressful, but these were not in the slightest!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
As a surprise for us during our reception, my mom planned for family members from both of our sides to perform a medley of short dances. We loved the dances they did for us, and the time they all took to choreograph and practice beforehand meant so much. However, my favorite part was when the medley ended, all of our family members formed a U-shape around the dance floor and held hands, signifying our families coming together as one. They brought Ashish and me to join in, and although marriage itself symbolizes the merger of the bride and groom's families, the gesture was so sweet. I replay this moment in my mind often.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Wedding planning is likely going to be stressful for you. If you're anything like me, you've been dreaming about your big day for as long as you can remember, and you want it to be as close to perfect as possible. A few things that helped me were:
 
1. Hiring a day-of coordinator, if your budget permits. We had an incredible experience with Dhara from Pure Lotus Events. She managed our wedding and reception beautifully; we didn't feel any stress on the day of our main events. She communicated with us throughout our planning process and reminded my family and I of things we would not have otherwise thought about, she managed our schedule, and most importantly, she managed our vendors on the day of our wedding. We were not planning to hire a day-of coordinator, but I am so glad we worked with Dhara. I only have delightful memories from our wedding day.
 
2. Involve your fiancé in the planning. My husband was involved each step of the way, from choosing our venue, to invitations, to food (this one did not take any arm-twisting), our reception flow - everything. Involving your fiancé can be challenging when you have different ideas, but ultimately, it's one of the biggest days in both of your lives. What you learn from planning a wedding together is important as you plan other important things together later in life!
 
3. Be open about how you feel during the wedding planning process. Speak up about what is important to you and your significant other. Know that you probably won't get everything the way you've always imagined it in your head since South Asian weddings typically tend to involve both the bride and groom's families in the planning, and distinguish the must-haves vs. the nice-to-haves. If you can be flexible on some of the nice-to-haves, you'll likely find that you are able to manage your planning-related stress more effectively.
 
You've been dreaming about this day for a while, so do what you need to in order to feel the bliss and love you deserve to feel on your big day. Maybe you can get a massage with one of your besties a few days beforehand, take time to relax and enjoy your spa/beauty treatments, and just find little moments on the days leading up to your wedding that you can enjoy with your fiancé, even if it's going to get your marriage license. You will probably be surrounded by friends and family on the wedding day itself, so I highly recommend cherishing the opportunities you have to take it all in with just the two of you.
 
If you were inspired today, come back tomorrow. We have something special prepared for you.

New Rochelle, NY Indian Wedding by House of Talent Studio

Then the magical VIP Country Club hosted the fantastic wedding reception where our friend from Stylish Events created a unique hall decoration with well-mixed flowers and lights that gave a royal look to the venue. Everyone had an epic night celebrating the union of our lovebirds' thanks to the fantastic talent from the music pros of Volcanik Entertainment, who put everyone on their feet to dance during the celebration. Please join us and be part of this dreamed event; just hit play! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in Manhattan during my second year of residency and connected instantly. On one of our first dates we hung out for over 14 hours adventuring all throughout the city from museums to restaurants to bars, Jimson tells me he even skipped a wedding he had the next day so we could keep the date going. After our first month of dating, Jimson told me we were going to a gala and handed me “Tickets to Hogwarts - Platform 9 3/4” (he knew I loved Harry Potter). He then brought me to the Whispering Wall in Grand Central Station and asked me to be his girlfriend. I, of course, said yes, and he handed me an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Not only did I get a boyfriend that night, but I got accepted into Hogwarts! That’s when I thought to myself that he could be “the one”.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I went on a vacation with my family to Greece and had invited Jimson to join me. He told me that he was too busy with work and wouldn’t be able to make it to my disappointment. Unbeknownst to me, he secretly flew into Santorini for the last part of our trip for 48 hours and planned a surprise engagement proposal with my siblings. On the day of the proposal, my siblings convinced me that we should do a family photo session. When we arrived, the photographer handed me a secret note with a password that would open a Cryptex (think Da Vinci code). The password to the Cryptex was “Always” – a reference to one of our favorite scenes from Harry Potter and the way he used to sign all of his letters to me. I kept thinking the entire time, “There’s no way he’s here in Santorini, he’s in America!” As soon as I opened the Cryptex, Jimson appeared out of nowhere and surprised me with a Golden Snitch shaped ring box (to complete the Harry Potter theme) and proposed!

Along with a full recap of our proposal story on: https://howtheyasked.com/roshini-and-jimson/
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We had 7 hidden Harry Potter elements throughout the day of the wedding and challenged our guests to find them - it was a fun way to engage with everyone while we were running around during the wedding. They were: my mehndi, our cake topper, a symbol hidden in our wedding program, Jimson’s socks, our wedding planner’s brooch, a Hogwarts acceptance letter from one of our first dates, and the Golden Snitch he proposed with.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment we won’t forget is when we walked onto the reception floor for the first time with our bridal party waiting for us and with our family and friends standing and cheering. You could feel the love and support in the room and it made us realize how blessed we were to have such a great and loving village behind us.
 
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 bridal party enter as part of a choreographed dance. My sister-in-law Shingari runs a dance studio (instagram: @Shingarirhythm), and was able to coordinate all 20 of our bridal party members into a synchronized Bollywood dance. Everyone was raving about how different and energizing it was to see the bridal party come out to a dance.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start planning as early as you can! My husband is a great planner and so he had pushed us to do a lot of things earlier than needed, but that was a game changer, because it resulted in our wedding week being a lot less stressful thanks to the early planning.
 
Have a wonderful day loves. Thanks for watching!

Playa del Carmen, MX Indian Wedding by Sarani Weddings

Are you ready to experience first hand what a real destination wedding is all about? Of course you are! Today and thanks to best Travel Concierge Ateet Ahuja from Indian Destination Weddings and Sarani Weddings, we have the gorgeous highlight reel of everything that went on for Gopi & Ronak's gala coming from Playa del Carmen. The two lovebirds truly went the extra mile with their celebration. What more can you ask for when you tie the knot by the roaring ocean? So romantic! And speaking of romanticism, the exclusive and always beaming Hard Rock Riviera Maya was the place chosen by the couple to house the galas. Going from the fun Sangeet all the way to the lavish reception, believe us, it was outstanding! To keep the party up and running, Dhoom Events Indian Wedding DJ. Bashes just go to another dimension with those playlist selections, so be sure this one had all the things we love about Indian weddings. Hit play below and relieve with us one more time Gopi & Ronak's incredible day of magic from paradise! See you at the sea!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ronak and I met my freshman year of college at a dance competition we hosted at UT Austin. We randomly kept in touch as friends for several years after that, and met up again in Chicago when I went to visit some friends in 2014. We talked nonstop after that and officially started dating a few months later. We did long distance for about 2.5 years before we both moved to Philadelphia to finally be closer to each other!

I'm not sure if there was an exact moment in time that I knew Ronak was "the one", but I knew pretty early on that he was someone I could see myself spending the rest of my life with. 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ronak proposed on FridayOctober 5th, 2018 at a gazebo behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I arrived thinking I was just attending a 'Yelp Elite' wine tasting event with my soon-to-be sister-in-law and another friend. When we arrived at the top of the hill and started walking towards the gazebo I saw Ronak standing in the middle of it, suited up and looking as handsome as ever.  I immediately started to cry (lol) and he held out his hand and asked me to dance (he had 'Thinking Out Loud' playing on his phone in his pocket haha). He said a bunch of sweet things that I can honestly hardly remember but before I knew it, he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! Then both of our families came and surprised me, and we all went to dinner together. Just when I thought the night couldn't get any better, Ronak pulled off one final surprise by throwing a huge party with all our closest friends at the rooftop of his apartment building. It was truly one of the most perfect days! 

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 started off venue shopping in Texas last year (where I'm from and where my parents live), thinking that's where we'd be hosting the wedding. After spending an entire weekend looking at venues and hotels that all looked the same, I came back to Philly and complained to Ronak that I didn't find one I loved. He threw out the idea of doing a destination wedding, and I laughed and said our parents would probably never agree to that. Long story short, they agreed and we decided on a destination wedding in Mexico, and it was honestly one of the best decisions we made!

Besides working with Ateet Ahuja from Indian Destination Weddings to help our guests get booked, I decided to do all the planning myself. I'll admit it was very hard at times since the majority, if not all, of the planning was done via email since we weren't able to go meet our vendors in person. But honestly all the vendors there are great to work with, and so understanding of what we need for an Indian wedding. Here's who we worked with for everything:

Travel Concierge: Ateet Ahuja - Indian Destination Weddings
Venue: Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Decor: Latin Asia
Florist: Tulipania
Food: Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Hair/MUA: Alex Corbanezi Beauty & Co.
Photo/video: Sarani Weddings
DJ: Dhoom Events - DJ Milin Jani
Audio/video equipment: PSAV Mexico
Entertainment:
Producciones Arteum - salsa lesson for our Welcome Fiesta and live saxophonist for the cocktail hour
Drums in Paradise - dhol player and vintage car for the baraat
Pyrotech - cold fireworks for the reception
Quiroo photobooth - photobooth at the cocktail hour and reception


How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I didn't really have a clear cut vision of what I wanted, but I'm so glad I took the time to try on a variety of styles because I really didn't like some of the styles that I thought I'd love. I went home to Houston one weekend to get some shopping done, and after looking up and down every store on Hilcroft and not finding anything, we decided to check out Panache by Sharmeen, as I'd heard great things about her and her selection. We originally went to look for reception outfits there, but my sister came across this beautiful red lehenga. She made me try it on and we all fell in love with it! Sharmeen worked with me on making a custom blouse for it since I knew I wanted to have emerald green, and we also custom made the dupatta's I wore. I love how it all turned out and Sharmeen was great to work with!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Probably selecting the decor details and then seeing it all come together towards the end! And of course having the weekend go as smoothly and flawlessly as possible, and hearing our guests tell us how much they enjoyed everything was just the cherry on top 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
From what we've heard, everyone really loved and appreciated the uniqueness of the destination wedding. I know they're getting increasingly popular these days but the majority of our guests had never attended one, and everyone just loved how our wedding also served as a mini-vacation for them!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It truly went by in the blink of an eye, but seeing Ronak on our wedding morning for our first look photos is a moment I'll 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.
Check out my wedding highlights on my Instagram page for all the deets 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process! Wedding planning isn't always the most fun, but it pays off and will truly be the most memorable time in your life! Also, try on different styles of outfits before committing to one! Everything always looks better on Pinterest, but you may not always love how it looks on yourself. 

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
