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!

Ladies, If you are like us and can't wait to enjoy this wedding in full, hit the play icon below and get ready to dive into this real-life fairytale! Besides, it is the best way to prepare for the weekend!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I've known Manoj since 10th grade in High School! We immediately became best friends back then and stayed best friends throughout the years. After high school, he went off to college in Pittsburgh and I went to Rutgers. But that didn't stop us from keeping our friendship. After college, we both ended up with jobs in NYC. After many years I realized he was always the one and we ended up together. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He really blew me away with my proposal! I work in the film and tv industry and I always tell him that one day I want to be an actress, hahaha. That inspired him to come up with a very creative, clever, and elaborate proposal. He got in touch with some of the cameramen that have worked with me in the past and had them email me asking me if I would like to be an extra in a film they're making. I, of course, immediately accepted the offer and got super excited at the idea of being an extra! Manoj had already chosen a spot: Grounds for Sculpture, the time and date: 6/30/18, and let all my family and friends know it was happening. In the morning the day of, he picked me up from my house for us to go be filmed as extras in this film.  Once we got to the grounds, we met up with the cameramen and they asked us to do a few poses and scenes. And during one of those scenes, he twirled me around, got down on one knee and popped the question! I was in utter shock and tears and didn't know what to do but of course, I said Yes! It was the perfect proposal and I couldn't have asked for a more creative and unique proposal that was so personal to me. 
 
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.
Soon after we got engaged we started looking for venues. We visited countless number of venues and just didn't fall in love with anything. One weekend we ventured up to north Jersey and came across the Hilton Pearl River and Manoj immediately fell in love with it. It was secluded, classy, looked like a castle, and big enough for our guest count. We loved the staff there and decided that'd be our venue! 
 
After the venue and date were finalized, we started looking for all the vendors. We worked with our planner Meghna, Bells N Rings Events. We loved DJ Insomnia (Premier Events) from another wedding he performed and booked him as soon as we could. Hair & Makeup was fairly straightforward to book. I went with Cinderella Bridez. For years, I had wanted LightYearStudio as my photo/video team and was really glad they were available to do our wedding. We shopped around for various decorators and Wedding Design was the only one that was able to create my dream aisle which is a glass top aisle with floating flowers underneath under a reasonable cost and they blew us away with their creativity and patience. 
 
Our overall experience with all of our vendors was absolutely fantastic. We, of course, had some ups and downs throughout the planning process but we couldn't have asked for a smoother execution from all the vendors and the end result was stunning. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted red and white. When I went to India, that color was hardly in style. It was all the modern colors- reds, pinks, blushes. I was super picky about it, and finally found what I thought I was the "perfect outfit". I constantly kept changing my mind even after I bought it, but soon after it started to grow on me and was happy with the choice. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The food tasting was definitely our favorite part of the planning process. That was the only thing that Manoj really looked forward. We went food tasting and various restaurants in NYC and NJ.  Pradeep from Mantra Restaurant absolutely blew us away. The food was delicious, the presentation was authentic, and the entire experience of working with him was very pleasant. We received a lot of compliments from our guests from the food. Huge thanks to Pradeep and his team! 
 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests brought a ton of hype and energy to the Baraat and our reception dance floor. The dance floor was packed all night and many of our guests didn't even leave the floor to go eat! The DJ did a phenomenal job with the music and kept everyone dancing the whole night. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The walk down that aisle is definitely the one moment I cannot forget. As a girl, you always dream about what you walking down that aisle to your forever person, what song will you walk down to, who will walk you down. It was very emotional for me-the song (Hasi Ban Gaye- which had the perfect lyrics for me), my two mamas walking me, and knowing that I am going to be spending the rest of my life with my best friend forever. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Even before I was a bride, I had always told all the brides-to-be, to enjoy every minute of the planning because when the day comes it will go by in a blink of an eye. So to all the bride-to-be's, take it all in, embrace the ups and downs, because in the end your day will be your special day and it will be magical even if there are hiccups. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I loved being able to be creative and putting things together with all the different aspects that was going on-from- integrating splashes of colors to my jewelry, combining different flowers and colors to make it perfectly match my bridesmaids outfit, coming up with the color combo and designs of my bridal party outfits to my bridal henna with some personal touches about us two.
