Memphis, TN Indian Wedding by Message in a Bottle

Hey there, ladies! Friday is here and so are we with today's featured wedding video. This time we have the pleasure to share the glittering glam of Kimi & Mit's grand Indian wedding, coming all the way from Memphis, Tennessee. We absolutely love the romantic and elegant color palette chosen by our lovebirds. The pre-wedding rituals and the main ceremony were beautiful, to say the least, and the couple was looking radiant in all of them. The crew from K.I Weddings had everything under control and assisted with the planning and design of the bash! They definitely were in tune with the couple's personalities and wishes and came up with this ravishing looking design that dazzled everybody, just like our Maharani's beauty. Bombay Salon and Spa, worked their hair and makeup magic on the bride and what a beautiful job they did. After the ceremony, guests were up for a treat thanks to the culinary wonders of Cafe Bombay Restaurant and Catering, who as we know, serves the best dishes around. Today's film comes to us thanks to the team from Message in a Bottle, a loving shout out to them and to Cindy B. Thymius Photography for the lovely images previously featured. So, what are you waiting for? Hit play and join us in today's highlight reel.

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We both met each other the very first day at a new student orientation party for medical school in the Caribbean (Antigua). It was legit straight out of a Bollywood movie. Girl standing at bar and boy walks in. Our eyes met from across the bar and it was a weird, instant attraction. In less than minutes, Mit came up to me and asked if he could buy me a drink. It was the first year mixer, the night before our first day of medical school. I went with 2 girls from my building that I barely knew (who later became my best friends, roommates, and now bridesmaids) but quickly abandoned them and spent the entire night talking to this dorky, yet adorable guy all night long about tv shows, college, and how neither of us knew a single person on this island. It was the easiest conversation I had ever had with anybody. The next morning I texted my best friend and said, "I know this is crazy and I don't believe in soulmates, but I think this guy is the one." From then on it was a rollercoaster of ups and downs and new experiences, but 2 countries, 3 states, and 4.5 years later, here we are getting married.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I am from Memphis and he's from Pennsylvania. We were in this odd period in our lives where we were both living back at home, waiting for residency to start because we were done with medical school. I was told by my parents that there was a regular Saturday night Indian party to attend downtown on the rooftop of one of the hotels and that it was a formal "tea party." Already dreading to go, I decided (or so I thought it was up to me) to go later on with my brother. He dropped me off outside while he went to look for parking and I walk up to the rooftop and I take a quick peek out but I don't see any of the guests that are supposed to be there. I actually thought about walking back downstairs and waiting for my brother but some lady walked around the corner and coaxed me into going further to the back of the rooftop. As I rounded the corner I saw Mit standing on the rooftop in a suit and instantly I knew what was about to come. It was an amazing evening. Friends from every walk of life had flown in to celebrate and my parents had also managed to plan an entire engagement party for that evening as well. It was definitely one of the most memorable nights of my entire life. 
 
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.
Planning our wedding was definitely a struggle, as both of us are in residency and did not have much time to sit together to go through things. We decided on an overall theme that we wanted, which was a starry nights-like theme and me being obsessed with Bollywood dances and performances knew that our bridal party had a lot of choreographed dances they would need to put up with. My mom was born to be an event planner so at the end of the day she listened to all of our ideas and what we wanted and she made them all come true. We did our research online as to decorators in Atlanta and my mom went to visit a few and finally landed on Sterling Decor as they led her to believe that they could make whatever vision we wanted to come true, and they definitely delivered. Hair and makeup-wise we decided to go with our local Bombay Beauty Salon in Memphis because I have been seeing them for years to get my eyebrows threaded and things like that and I knew I would be in great hands. I trusted them and to me, that was all that mattered. Venues in Memphis were tough to choose from, but at the end of the day it came down to capacity as well and we knew we would have a good-sized number of people to come so a hotel seemed to be the most accommodating in Memphis. I've always loved the idea of a hotel and everyone staying in one place for the wedding weekend so that all the other guests can bond and hang out during off times throughout a weekend and that's exactly what happened. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
This is a great question. Because I was in residency and could not get away to go shopping in India, my mom went to India and bought all of my clothes. I know some would say that would be risky, but she knows my style better than anyone else. She would Facetime me several times throughout the night and show me the outfits in the store and my only input would really be "yes or no." It was a long month of interrupted sleep but I have no idea how she did it all by herself! She picked the most beautiful outfits and I could not have done a better job!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the most enjoyable part for Mit and I was every night when we sat down to plan whatever we needed to do or organize seating charts, we would put on youtube and play a Bollywood playlist and just sing and dance together, being silly. It brought us even closer and made the entire process more enjoyable for us both. It became a ritual for us every night for at least 6 months. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We've been hearing great things from our friends and family about our wedding, mainly about food and decor. They absolutely enjoyed all the food and decor from start to finish. It was different and unique, especially compared to smaller events we usually in see in a small town like Memphis. I think we had great entertainment and dances from all our families and friends that made the event so enjoyable. I always had this vision in mind of a "Bollywood musical" and every single event throughout the wedding had a performance, even the walk down the wedding aisle included our bridal party doing a cheesy, choreographed dance, which I think was extremely memorable for everybody and allowed the guests to have an experience as well
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly, the best moment to me was after the wedding ceremony, Mit and I went up to the presidential suite and changed into comfortable sweatpants and just stuffed our faces with food. About to 5 minutes into eating, we just both looked at each other at the same time and go "we're married." It was just that one moment we actually took it all in and appreciated the moment. We were completely and entirely ourselves at that moment and after that, we went back to eating and enjoying the alone time together. Everything moved so quickly during that whole weekend and even as much as I tried to take it all in, it was hard, but that moment was huge for us because we took a second to just be like "this was us. we did it and we are about to spend the rest of our lives together." 
 
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.
I have a great Memphis community. Living in such a small town is honestly a blessing because the Indian community here is so close and extremely tight. I have been raised by these 300 aunties and uncles and I can honestly say that I have a unique relationship with each of them. I think a testament to this is the AMAZING performance they put on at our Sangeet. Over 30 of our closest aunties and uncles had spent months and hours choreographing the greatest saga to re-enact mine and Mit's love story from start to finish. It was the most enjoyable and special thing I have ever seen. About 10-12 minutes in length, they danced, acted, learned both Gujarati and Sindhi to speak during the skit, and truly had a blast. My parents even made a special dance performance at the end of it. It was epic and definitely a performance I will hold dear to my heart forever. 
 
In regards to our reception decor, I was in absolutely in awe. We went back and forth several times about what we wanted. Several of our friends had gotten married that year and each wedding we went to, we came back more and more confused about what we wanted. We finally decided to go back to what we originally said about wanting something that was "starry nights-like." I really have to give it to Sterling decor for making our dreams come true because I was so vague and wishy-washy and what I wanted and didn't really know how to describe it, but they fully understood it and delivered the most magical and enchanting vision. They did over and beyond what I ever envisioned and I could not be more grateful. The starry backdrop, the starlit dance floor, and crystal lines hanging down the backdrop to give it an icy, wintery feel was absolutely stunning. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Just try to enjoy yourself and don't take things too seriously. Even if things go wrong, they will find a way to work themselves out. At the end of the day, the little details don't even matter. All that matters is that you are surrounded by people you love and admire and you take the time to appreciate and cherish that. 
 
Enjoy your weekend!

San Diego, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Today we add one more spectacular wedding to our pages and couldn't be more excited! Peter Nguyen Studio seamlessly captured all the emotions and sentiments of Pavitraa and Matt and put it into an elegant and artistic film you are about to see! This authentic and memorable celebration was flawlessly planned and executed by SD Weddings by Gina at the beautiful Hilton Bayfront San Diego. The stunning waterfront plaza ceremony had a beautiful display of the union of two cultures under a mandap that embraced shades of blue and blush created by the genius decorators of Kismet Event Design. The high-end reception had the extraordinary culinary touch of Mantra Indian Cuisine who created an elaborate and exquisite menu for this memorable night. Pavitraa’s impeccable taste and wedding style was echoed in a bespoke gown that fused both cultures; “a beautiful silk ivory gown with Indian embroidery and a delicate dupatta that mimic’d a veil.” What a bombshell she was! Unveil the most romantic western-Indian fusion wedding below!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

Matt and I met on Match.com. We spent a few weeks texting back and forth and decided to meet for happy hour. I think we both knew there was great chemistry as we spent 4.5 hours talking about your life, jobs, families, and everything in between. Matt was my first and only date on Match.com so I’m fortunate that online dating brought this perfect man to me. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I’ve never wanted a big over-the-top proposal. All I ever wanted is to have family around when it happened. Well, I never told Matt this but somehow he knew (I told you, he’s perfect!). We were celebrating Matt’s birthday that weekend and as a surprise to me, he called my sister and brother in law to visit us. The night before his birthday party, the four of us went out to dinner at my favorite restaurant in Scottsdale, Sassi. Once we were all seated, Matt told me that he had another surprise for me. After seeing my sister and brother in law, I, of course, said: “are mom and dad here too?” (As I looked around the restaurant). By that time Matt was on one knee and asking me to marry him. It was the perfect most unforgettable evening. 
 
Matt’s birthday party ended up turning into more of an engagement party for us but it was still a spectacular weekend!
 
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.
From the onset of planning the wedding, I wanted to make sure I was incorporating both cultures (Indian and western) and both religions (Hindu and Christian). 
 
Being born and raised in San Diego, I always wanted to get married by the water. Luckily, Matt loves San Diego so it was an easy choice. My dad recommended the Hilton Bayfront and it was love at first sight. The venue was perfect for the events that we wanted to incorporate and the staff was great to work with. I wanted the decor to be simple but elegant - shades of blue and some pops of blush. My bridesmaids wore beautiful shalwar kameezs and the groomsmen sported dapper tuxedos. 
 
After my dad walked me down the aisle, the Hindu Pandit led us through portions of the Hindu wedding during the first part of our ceremony - which included a Ganesh puja, garland exchange, and saptapadi. We then transitioned to the Christian part of the ceremony, officiated by our friend Brett, - which included a Bible reading, vow exchange, and ring exchange. I wanted to have a fusion of the ceremonies rather than having multiple ceremonies.
 
Being on time is something that I and my family take pretty seriously and I had an amazing wedding planner who kept us on schedule the entire day. I think by the time the reception started, we were only 20 minutes behind!!
 
We are so grateful to my parents who gave us such a beautiful and memorable wedding day and we can’t thank them enough for it. 
 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I worked with one of my family friends to design my wedding dress. My vision to fuse both cultures came to reality as my dress was a beautiful silk ivory gown with Indian embroidery and a dupatta that mimic’d a Veil. Continuing with the blue color scheme, I chose navy blue and gold embroidery and work. I wore the same gown for the reception party but removed the dupatta so I would be more comfortable dancing the night away. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the process was seeing it all come together in the last week - it was so rewarding. Wedding planning IS stressful but it’s all worth it in the end. We had family and friends fly-in a few days early to spend time on any last minute planning and to just celebrate our big day. My favorite part was knowing that the work we had all put into this big day was all coming together! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
This is a hard one - there are so many special moments from that day! Prior to our wedding, one of our friends told us to “remember to take a moment, just the two of you, to soak it all in.” During the cocktail hour when our guests were finding their tables for dinner, Matt and I were sitting in another room. We had about 10 minutes to ourselves for the first time that day before we made our grand entrance as husband and wife. We talked about how grateful we were that everyone in the ballroom next door was here for us and to celebrate our love. It’s not every day you get to have all your special and loved ones in one room. It was also an opportunity for us to soak in the fact that we had just gotten married and that it was truly one of the happiest days of our life (I get a huge smile on my face thinking about those ten special minutes). 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We could talk on and on about this day because it was one of the best days of our lives. We still feel like it was all a dream and the best dream, at that. We’re so thankful to our wonderful and accommodating vendors who made this day so special and customized for us. 
 
Enjoy your day ladies and remember to visit us again tomorrow!

Redlands, CA Indian Wedding by Samson Productions

Yes, it is that time again! Another featured wedding film coming our way thanks to our friends from Samson Productions, who never fail to impress with their visual creations. Today it is Aman & Steve's turn to dazzle you Maharanis with their week-long love celebrations all the way from Redlands, CA. Our couple's fine taste was definitely a highlight, combining traditional and modern Hindu elements from the rituals to the reception. They sure knew what the word celebration meant! Our beautiful Maharani looked flawless at all times, thanks to no other than Farah Manekia from My Fair Bride who did an incredible job hypnotizing Steve with Aman's beauty. A celebration cannot be without your loved ones. Guests were up for a treat after the ceremony with the delicious bites from Mantra Indian Cuisine and Porto's Bakery. And to finish the night, DJ Scorpio and his sounds lit up the place big time. So come in and take a look into Aman and Steve's celebration!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Steve completely unannounced and unexpectedly at my best friends birthday dinner. I had to leave early that night to prepare for a huge exam the next morning. When I got home, I received an friend request from him with a message to come back out. I politely refused, but wishing I could've been there. The next few weeks and months were filled with messages between us. We instantly clicked and became great friends. We met for dinner, movies, hikes, and sporadic lunches. I was beginning to realize that our time together, filled with respect, laughter, care, butterflies, and adventures, was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. The two weeks Steve cancelled all his plans to help me study for my boards, I knew he would be there for me through it all. I knew he was the one!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Steve has never been good with surprises. However, this time he really got me! The weekend of my birthday, he wanted to take me out for a special dinner. We drove to Newport Beach to this amazing Spanish restaurant overlooking the marina. Upon arriving, I discovered over 30 of our closest friends waiting to surprise me with flowers, balloons, a cake, hugs, and kisses. I was completely taken by this surprise because I literally had no clue how he put all this together. After a few moments of unwinding at happy hour, Steve announced to the group that we were moving on to another location.  Everyone, including me, had no idea where the next stop was. We walked over to a private yacht that he had chartered, complete with a catered meal, open bar, and a DJ. We set off into the harbor with the beautiful September sun slowly descending. Right before sunset, Steve appeared out of nowhere in a completely different suit. I found myself surrounded by my friends, the music dimming, and the crowd hushing. Steve approached me, held my hands, looked into my eyes, and started to proclaim his love for me. He popped the question! I never felt so loved; I said Yes!
 
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 did not have one bad experience. All of our vendors were completely professional, prompt, and their work exceeded out expectations. Edgar at Renaissance Banquets always picked up our calls, no matter what time of day. Vishal at KNK took his art of decor to the next level every time. DJ Scorpio worked closely with us to create a custom playlist, look, feel, and sound we needed to entertain the guests. Portos Bakery in Glendale, CA came through with the most amazing, moist, and delicious four-tier cake that our guests raved about for weeks after. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a custom light green dress made from a renowned tailor in Delhi, India. I wanted something different than the traditional white dress, or traditional colors. This dress embodied elements of a lengha was just the look I wanted; I was in love.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Multiple trips to Michaels, moms and aunts sitting around drinking chai, gluing and creating decor, listening to wedding songs, laughing, talking and planning into the wee hours of the night will echo through our memories for decades to come. It was the coming together of family and friends, and the synergy of their efforts and love that made the planning process most enjoyable.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the uniqueness and perfect blend of two countries, cultures, religions, food, and music. It was a week filled with traditions that respected and represented us and our families. The grand finale was the reception that took on modern feel with a grand ballroom filled with sound, lights, party favors, fine mediterranean cuisine, pyrotechnics, and the busiest dance floor in town that night. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Not only was the dance floor full for the entire 4 hours, Steve opened the dance floor with a surprise  serenade of a Punjabi love song which took my breath away.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The journey is just as (if not more) important than the destination. Do not be so wrapped up in the end result that you forget to cherish every moment leading up to it. Slow down, enjoy, appreciate, and live in the moment. #NoBridezilla
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My hair, makeup, and mehndi was done by Farah Manekia, and it was spot on. I loved every single immaculate detail! She was early on each occasion, took her time, added last minute requests, and got me looking my best, before the requested time. She was pleasant, smiling, and very caring about my particular needs. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a worry-free experience to get the perfect look.
 

Until next time here on Maharani Weddings
