Jersey City, NJ Indian Wedding by Memories Photo Studio

Thursday is here, ladies, and with it a brand new feature film for your beautiful selves! This time around, we head down to Jersey City to have a glimpse of everything that went on for Prutha & Amit's gorgeous Indian wedding jubilee. Our friends from Memories Photo Studio were there at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson to store with their lenses, all the fashion and decor sensibilities that made this gala, a truly unique and grand Indian wedding experience. We know that such grand celebrations can get a little hectic. Our lovebirds knew that very well and recruited the team from Elegant Celebrations to assist with the planning and design of the bash. As we will see, the celebrations ran as smoothly as ever so kudos to them for such great work! The couple also wanted the best of the best for the guests, and when the crew from D&S Event Solutions is involved, of course, the best is to be expected. They assisted with the baraat sounds, lighting decor, and the always present music that made everyone jump off their feet and start with all the dancing that we love so much. So, ladies, so much to look at for this celebration! Don't miss any detail and get those ideas going!

More to come, stick around!

Scottsdale, AZ Indian Fusion Wedding by Aria Cinema Films

We absolutely love the highlight reels of the gorgeous weddings we feature. There are always lots of details and ideas to get inspiration and that is what is all about. I am very excited about today's filmy for various reasons. One of them is the awe-inspiring fashion sense of today's lovebirds, Saaniya & Shawnjeet. I am absolutely certain that you, ladies, are just going to be blown by what our couple chose to wear for the most important day of their lives as well as the previous rituals. We also know that weddings can get a little hectic, but nothing to worry about. Urvashi Mishra, Wedding & Event Planner had everything under control at all times with her planning and design skills. So amazing! Don't forget also to take a look at the enchanting mehndi design our Maharani Saaniya rocked for the ceremonies thanks to Henna by Purvi and that you can enjoy in the amazing photo feature dedicated to these two! As artistic as it gets, I tell you that! So, dolls, time to hit play for more of this thanks to Aria Cinema Films.

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
While we had lived in 3 of the same cities at the same time, had been part of similar groups of friends and even grown up with each other's family members - somehow we had never met. My cousin and now husband were both medical residents together in Chicago at the time and he introduced us to each other. The connection was nearly instant between us. But also between our closest friends and cousins - the two groups became one in just a few weeks. We knew right away that we had created something special. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Shawn had an interview in New Orleans so I was going there to explore the city to see if it was somewhere I thought we could live. We had decided to have a date day on Friday since he has a couple of cousins there that I knew we would be spending the rest of the weekend with.  We went to City Park and walked around - it was such a cute park with a "Fairy tale area" and a playground and sculpture garden. We walked past a boat dock and there was a romantic  Gondola ride waiting for us. The hour-long ride showed us the entire park - including a bridge which had the initials of every couple that had been on the ride in the last 8 years. We happily chalked our name into the bridge. Shawn was very clearly nervous... Asking bizarre questions like "what was your favorite class in high school?". Finally, I figured out why he bent down on one knee on the bridge above the gondola and asked me to be his wife. After a quick photoshoot from the hidden photographer and many tears, Shawn led me a few steps away to a hidden private table adorned in beautiful décor and all my favorite foods, right on the river water. I heard all my favorite Hindi songs playing and fell to my knees. I assumed this was the conclusion of the proposal but boy was I wrong. After we returned to the hotel- a makeup artist, hairstylist and multiple handpicked dresses from my then fiance showed up to get me fully glammed up for the evening. Afterward, we arrived at the restaurant we were having dinner at and out jumped our siblings and cousins from all of the world, including as far as London. I was shocked and overjoyed knowing my husband had brought the people we cared about the most together for this special moment. The weekend continued with multiple planned events, including private tables at a club, festive group brunches, a private balcony to enjoy the Mardi Gras festivities, and an engagement party at the home of his cousin. It was the best weekend of my life and one I will never forget. 
 
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 used Instagram quite a bit for finding all my vendors - whether it was perusing all the weddings on the Maharani Weddings Instagram or going through every possible photographer and videographers content for hours and hours - it was definitely a great platform for me to find everything I needed. I found the entire process of finding vendors pretty overwhelming as I think the options only continue to increase in the market which further makes platforms like Maharani Weddings even more important. However, once the vendors were selected - everything felt much more seamless. 
 
Our venue was very important to us as all of the family and friends were from the Midwest and it was the middle of winter. We had just moved to Scottsdale and wanted to give our guests a true Outdoor Winter Scottsdale experience with views of all the mountains and outdoor events. Hyatt Regency Scottsdale at Gainey ranch had all of that in an inviting resort-style feel which we could imagine our fun families having a great time at even between events and truly feeling like they were on vacation. For the Mendhi, I knew I wanted the old-school home Mendhi but still with the feel of Scottsdale. We rented a beautiful home on top of a mountain in Paradise Valley with breathtaking views, food trucks and the homestyle feel with a dholi and Punjabi folk songs from all the family and friends. 
 
One thing that was very, very important to us was the ceremony. We are a Sikh & Hindu family and wanted both religions represented in one combined ceremony without having to have two separate ceremonies - something we realized was much more difficult to create than we originally thought. Each religion has a set of very specific rules that in many ways can conflict with the others in how the ceremony should be done. Up until the week of the wedding, we didn't think it would all come together and considered just doing the Sikh ceremony. Finally, in the last few days, it all came together. The Hindu Pandit and Sikh BhaiSaab beautifully took the ceremony stage together and performed the joint ceremony of our dreams - putting aside any differences in traditions and bringing us together in one union under both Gods. It was the first of its' kind for our family and friends and was the perfect start to our married lives together as one. 
 
For the decor, we knew we wanted three very distinct and different feels to each event and Prashe blew us away by giving us just that - from the Punjabi Pind Chandni Chowk style marketplace to the serene outdoor sanctuary for the sangeet,  to the elegant lush style glam of our reception. She transported us and our guests to a different world with each event. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We knew we wanted 4 very distinct looks that brought out different facets of who we are from the childlike fun side to the traditional Bollywood classic lovers, and the American born kids raised with the idealized Disney fairy tale. For the actual bridal lengha - I knew from day one I wanted something that we hadn't seen before - that had the traditional bridal components with a twist. We went in search of a green emerald velvet lengha, and Shyamal & Bhumika made that vision a reality with my custom lengha. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Shopping for outfits in India was definitely a highlight for us, as Shyamal & Bhumika, Tarun Tahiliani & Sabyasachi were all fantastic designers to work with that went above and beyond to make our experience and outfits exactly we envisioned. Next to that was the bridal trial with Makiaj Beauty and the tasting experience with Chef Kaushik  -- both vendors made us feel so trusting and comforted in their skills that we knew we had nothing to worry about. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The décor and food were definitely the two things we heard people rave about the most at the wedding; as well as the hyped energy brought by DJ Gaurav and Dhol Nation. But more than any of that - what we loved hearing was that everyone could truly palpitate the love in the room and it felt like the genuine celebration of one family, not two. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It was definitely the walk down the aisle. While it is a moment I have dreamt of since I was young, nothing prepared me for the gravity of the actual moment. From seeing Prashe's incredible décor perfectly compliment the natural AZ scenery, to seeing all the bridal party outfits come together so beautifully but the first time, to hearing the songs that we meticulously picked for each walk-in, to seeing each reaction from the people we cared about most in the audience as each person walked down, and last but not least to seeing my groom at the end look so regal and filled with love - it is truly a breathtaking moment I will 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.
The sangeet dances were huge and so special for us - both of us have grown up Indian dancing since we were children and knew our Punjabi families wouldn't skip a beat in going all out for the dances. But nothing prepared us for how amazing and full of energy each of the dances was. We had almost two hours of nonstop energetic dances in our program. We could not be more grateful for all of the hard work they put into thoughtful and talented performances. 
 
Our sangeet dance floor had "Yaar Tera Lit" written on it - an ode to one of our favorite artists, Mickey Singh and the coming together of all our "yaars". 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Find vendors you trust and that feel like an extension of your family - those are the ones that will ensure you are not stressed on your big day and go above and beyond to make your vision a reality. There are multiple of our vendors we still talk to on a regular basis months after our wedding including our dhol player Malinder, our photographer Zaheer, and our decor vendor Prashe - and we love it. It truly makes all the difference when you have vendors you can trust, be honest with and know that no matter what they have your back. Use your instinct more than anything else on those initial meetings - if you use that more than proposals and Instagram pages - you'll quickly be able to determine who should be a part of your dream team. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I wore my mother's actual bridal jewelry for the sangeet - something that was very important and special for me to do. One of the necklaces I wore for the ceremony has been passed down in my father's family for over 5 generations. 
 
The day before our wedding kicked out, we went to Sedona (2 hours away) with our brilliant photographer Zaheer (zmoluphotography) - it was one of our favorite parts of the whole week. Taking a moment to breathe before it all starts with just your significant other and allow yourself to soak in that incredible moment of your life that is about to occur made all the difference for us. Plus it didn't hurt to have a super funny photographer who felt like a best friend and made us forget all the other stresses of the planning process. 
While we got engaged in New Orleans, we took our engagement pictures in Positano, Italy. 
Our Save the Data was a picture of us imitating the DDLJ cover - in full identical outfits as the original actors. An ode to my love for all things Bollywood.
 

There is more coming down the road, so stay tuned for all the upcoming details!

Alberta, CA Sikh Wedding by Michael J. Scott Productions

Hey there, dolls! A splendid union returns today to delight us with a marvelous film that will take your breath away! After a beautiful photography feature brought to us Andras Schram Photography, the brilliant Michael J. Scott Productions takes us to Alberta, Canada to relive all the splendor that surrounded Arpen & Neil during their grand Sikh wedding. Lynn Fletcher Events planned this memorable celebration that started at the Empire Banquet Hall and continued at the Azuridge Estate Hotel. The decor experts from Flower Artistry were in charge of decorating the main events, and what excellent job they did! While Book Glow Beauty dolled up our beautiful bride with a gorgeous look that is undoubtedly one of the most fabulous we have seen! Emotions, music, grandiose styles, and incredible landscapes are just a few things that make this highlight film one for the books. Hit play now loves and enjoy the creative visual work of Michael J. Scott Productions!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Neil and I met when I was in my final year of dental school and while he was completing his surgical residency program; our connection was instantaneous. We had seen each other a few times at the hospital, decided to grab coffee - and the rest is history! I knew he was the one after I learned how sweet, ambitious, and funny he is. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Neil surprised me with the proposal over a romantic dinner overlooking the Chicago skyline at The Signature Room at the 95th. I had no idea it was coming, and he had the waitress capture pictures of the entire thing; we celebrated afterwards with champagne & dessert - it was perfect.
 
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 kept organized by creating checklists; we were engaged for a year and a half before the wedding, so I knew what I needed to have booked at 12, 6, 3 months out. Pre-planning all of that helped me stay stress-free and allowed us to enjoy and make the most of the wedding events. Our vendors were also amazing - from the photographer, videographer, wedding decor & coordination, hair & makeup - our teams were so fabulous. I would definitely recommend them for future couples.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I honestly thought I was going to wear red; however, when I tried on that Rimple & Harpreet outfit, I knew it was the one. The intricacy of the textiles inspired by ancient India were stunning; and I loved that it was traditional, yet unique. Padmaavat is one of my favourite Indian films, especially because of the beautiful pieces that Rimple & Harpreet designed - I definitely had them in mind when I traveled to India. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they enjoyed the outdoor ceremony; the setting was stunning. Honestly, we were very happy with the venue that we chose - it had a very intimate feel, which is exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most memorable moment for me was when my parents walked me down the aisle and that first look with Neil; it was very special.
 
We hope to see you, tomorrow Maharanis! One more spectacular film is ready to be unveiled!
