Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by Brandon Andrews Photography

The heart of Karishma and Arselan's Indian wedding was family. With every clip of this cinematic highlight, I could just feel the love that radiated within the group of family and friends that attended the auspicious ceremony and reception events planned by the sought after planning firm Red and Gold Events. No Indian bride would be complete without fulfilling the role of being stunning and show-stopping, and Beauty by Ami Patel was the bridal makeup and hair expert that ensured Karishma looked her very best. Not only the bride’s multiple saris were on point; hair and makeup were kept at stunningly simple chic. The ceremony was just amazing, so full of glam! The grand reception took place at the prestigious Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort and the place was of course completely vibrant thanks to DJ Jaz- GTB Productionspump up playlist. Hit play below and relieve with us what went on during Karishma & Arselan's wedding spree, thanks to the amazing Brandon Andrews Photography!

 

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We've known each other since high school but never saw the other in that light...till we did. He was so sweet to me at one of my friend's party and I saw he had qualities that could make for a good boyfriend. I didn't know it then, but I started to realize over time that he would make an even better husband
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We started off the night with dinner at a restaurant that overlooks the Skyline of Atlanta. The restaurant rotates to provide different views of the city. After an amazing dinner, he was ready to start his speech when we hear, YES YES!!! The woman next to us got proposed to. A few moments later, their family and friends surrounded them and we were forced to switch tables. "Wish that was me," I thought to myself. Little did I know, when he started his speech...again...and confessed his love for me, it was my moment too. Though awkward with the turn of events, he totally nailed it and I said yes!! Afterward, we took the elevator downstairs where our family and friends surprised me. It is quite the story...lol
 
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 needed to figure out the major vendors first. Venue and photography were most crucial and we wanted to do our due diligence in weighing out all the options. Our photographer also provided a videography bundle which was exactly what we were looking for. I took a two week trip to India to find all my outfits and his Indian outfits. My dad and brother also went with me and provided amazing support throughout the trip. I asked for some recommendations from my friends who also got married in Atlanta, GA and I was able to find an awesome makeup artist. My groom and I shared a Pinterest board as well as other inspirations we found on social media. He provided great feedback and helped me make decisions that were in line with our budget. Overall, we were looking for aspiring artists that had passion for their work. This means that they enjoyed what they did and would keep us engaged. We got just that! All the vendors put their heart in their work and impressed us immensely. We are so proud of our wedding because of them. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
From the beginning, I was in love with the idea of a navy blue gown as my outfit for the wedding reception. Long, trailing, and metal thread work is what I had in mind and got just that. Once I tried it on, my dad and brother's reaction pretty much confirmed that it was the one. For Sangeet, I wanted to do a Jaipur style mirror lengha. I really liked the color emerald green and was able to find something for myself and an accent shawl for him in that color. For Nikah, I coordinated with my designer to customize a delicate lace sari with full sleeves. I knew the Nikah saris were traditionally white and I wanted to keep in tradition with an American twist. I think we did a good job in achieving that vision.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I had the pleasure of having a groom who was always 100% involved. I enjoyed the moments where we sat down and bounced ideas off each other. We knew this process is a once in a lifetime and we wanted to soak in every moment. We were even more creative when we worked together.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
What do most guests look forward to at weddings? The food!! They couldn't stop raving about how exquisite the food tasted. They also appreciated the creativity of each menu. 
 
Our guests also complimented on the variance of emotions throughout the wedding weekend. Our Sangeet was all about Laughing, Singing, and Dancing. From Antakshari to the Dance Performances, the event was full of competitive energy. Groom side vs Bride side was the theme of the night and our sides came to show out!! The following day, we had a sentimental walk into the Nikah hall as we took vows of marriage in the eyes of God. And when it came to Reception, our families got a chance to share their thoughts and stories about us that left no dry eye in the Hall.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment when I officially took him to be my husband. I will never forget the way he looked at me and the tears falling down my face (it was caught on camera).
 
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 decor was based on the vibe of the night. Sangeet was themed as a cultural "dhamaka." We had everything from dhol, matkis, vibrant colors, and unique arrangements. The stage was set for entertainment. For the reception, we aimed for an elegant but grand appearance. Other than the drapes, we added frames, chandeliers and other elements of grandeur. The navy wedding gown needed a contrast color of blush pink that brought the room together with hints of champagne gold. The creativity in the details was the most fun part of planning. For example, we came up with love-themed signs for the food dishes. For chicken tikka masala, we used "tikka part of my heart" for Gulab Jamoon, we used "to jamoon and back". We did this for all of the dishes at Sangeet. At the Reception cocktail hour, we used personalized jenga pieces and playing cards for our guests to sign. We now reminisce on the weekend whenever we play with them.
 
Our Sangeet was filled with performances by family and friends. Everyone from age 4 to 80 touched the dance floor to show off their dance skills. Our DJ lit up the party and our families never let it stop. The night started with an intense game of Antakshari and ended with aching heels.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Take it one step at a time and remember to enjoy the planning process as well as the events. Never be afraid to trust others especially your groom. You know he has good taste because he picked you ;)
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Cake: We had a unique Cake designed with different thicknesses and textures for the tiers. The bottom tier was Chocolate cake with heat bar and moose filling. The cake that was served was Tres Leches. Our cake was made an aspiring pastry artist.
 
Bridal Henna: I shared my vision with my henna artist and she took it so much further than I expected. She used a picture of us that I really loved and created characters of us in the traditional Indian style bride and groom. She even got his beard right!! All the elements within my bridal henna had the finest detail that brought it to life. I could not have imagined anyone else doing my henna.

Somis, CA Indian Wedding by One Story Weddings

Yes! We are absolutely stoked with today's feature, ladies! Really few places deliver a stunning atmosphere and ambiance for love celebrations like Hartley Botanica Inc. The different types of bloomy flowers and plants truly make up for a dream scenario and of course that our highlight reel of today showcases that and more. Kina & Jason's vision was a big one for their special day as we will see. Yamaguchi Nursery came on board with the floral arrangements and decoration and let me tell you, it was absolutely breathtaking, just like Maharani Kina's beauty ensemble as she walked down the aisle. The quintessential Maharani look and vibe were crafted by none other than the amazing Dolled up by Lulu. We already know about her skills so try not to fall from your chair as you witness our bride in her glory! After a rollercoaster of emotions, it was only mandatory for the celebration to be incredible. The beautiful sounds of Ronobir Lahiri Music truly brought the enchantment to the gala and we are just loving it.  Also, a loving shout out to our friends from One Story Weddings who were kind enough to share their creation with us today. So without further ado, here we have it, ladies! Our film of the day! Hit play and enjoy!

   

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through a mutal friend, who introduced us to one another via Facebook, before online dating was a "thing". He messaged me a few months later, and we wrote paragraphs to one another via Messenger for months. When we finally set aside a time to talk on the phone months later, we realized we both had taken notes of some talking points/questions to keep the conversation going! Conversation has lasted forever.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to the La Jolla cliffs in SoCal on our first date weekend and had brunch with some friends. He took me to the cliff overlooking the ocean and started talking about the amazing travels and adventures we had and asked if I wanted to keep going on them with him. He got down on 1 knee and tears immediately started flying down my face. The ring was gorgeous and beyond anything I ever wished for. We're so grateful that our friends were there to capture the moment with pictures that we'll carry with us forever.
 
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 waited almost 6 months before we got started, as we really wanted to enjoy the time as an engaged couple. We immediately decided on a destination wedding in SoCal for everyone but ourselves, as my family lives in Boston and Jason's are in the NorCal/Bay Area. We are both young professionals whose jobs require us to be very organized, which makes us well suited for wedding planning!  We really wanted to ensure the wedding was totally stress free for our families, so we decided to plan and organize everything ourselves, which was a great idea. We went to a few trade shows, but mostly researched using recommendations from friends, other vendors, and Instagram! 
 
Venue - Our family & friends were traveling all the way to LA to be outside, not indoors in a hotel ballroom. It was really important to us to find a venue that was outside, yet shaded, given the summer long weekend date. We found Hartley Botanica online which had done a few Indian weddings before, and quickly fell in love with the grounds and incredible staff. Everyone was really kind and organized, and made the whole process incredibly easy for us. They recommended our florist, who was a treat.
 
Photo & Video - Gary Coelho & his team were amazing, and not just for their creativity & professionalism, but mostly for how they led the day. They managed to orchestrate family photos in a seamless way and were simply a joy to be around. We loved how the photos capture so much emotion and are incredibly vibrant.
 
Hair & Make Up - As soon as I confirmed the wedding date, I immediately booked Lulu. She is the kindest woman with the most amazing eye for hair & makeup. She made me feel so beautiful for my engagement shoot and wedding. The hair & make up lasted ALL day, and it was over 100 degrees!
 
Sitar - If you asked anyone what the highlight was of the wedding day, I think all of them will say it was Ronobir at the cocktail hour. He played a mix of classic and modern hits, that really got a pretty non-Indian crowd excited. His music in the garden setting was simply magical. I truly wish we could have seen more of it but were off taking pictures of the splendid grounds! 
 
Mahan Candles - WOW is all I can say. Our venue is pretty popular for DIY brides, and I knew I wanted gorgeous tall glass candles without having to deal with the logistics of glass and fire. Insert Mahan Candles, which is a pre
 
As for decor theme, we were simply aiming for fun and ensuring everything represented us as a couple. I'm a bit crafty, so I really enjoyed designing some of the signage and tablescapes. Each table number had a name of a location we've traveled to, and we wrote stories of why that place is special to us so our guests could understand a little more about our story. The only reason why our reception florals were purple & blue is because purple is my favorite color and blue is Jason's favorite color. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I have a pretty classic style, so I knew I wanted a bright shade of red and gold. I kept things really simple. I went to Frontier Heritage to try lenghas on with one of my bridesmaids, and just loved the shade of red and embroidery. Jassi was very helpful at making sure everything fit perfectly right up until the wedding.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
All of it! Okay, maybe just the hair & make up, just kidding. I really feel like Jason and I worked together as a team throughout all of it, as we had a shared goal of a fun & stress free day for our family and friends. He is better at some of the business/negotiation conversations, and led a lot of creative elements to me. Our strengths/weaknesses are perfectly suited to one another. For example, he loves music and I love the details like graphic design.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They will tell you the barat, music, sitar, and the dancing. We had flipflops & glowsticks to ensure everyone was dancing up a storm as the night cooled down under the market lights. It was really special.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There are so many! Jason and I wrote incredibly sweet wedding vows to one another that make me tear up to this day. I remember walking down to him with my parents on my side, the speeches, my bridesmaids - I truly remember all of it.  
 
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 barat was so much fun. Jason entered in a Jaguar convertible, and boy was it a party. Despite the heat, everyone was dancing to the dhol player as if they'd never dance again! We had a mix of Indian and non-Indian, as it was the first Indian wedding for a lot of our friends, and everyone got into the dancing which was really fun to see.  
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't stress and take the planning one step at a time. At the end of the day, it's all about you and your husband. Do everything you can to ensure you are true to yourselves throughout the process & day, and that the wedding is a reflection of you as a couple and your love for one another.

See you soon, ladies!
