Florham Park, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Hi Maharanis! It's Wednesday and to pay tribute to another couple's video, Lightyear Studio tells the story of Kinjal & Shilp's wedding day with a heartfelt cinematic production of selected highlights you will adore. This same-day edit film is spectacular with its aerial shots, pre-wedding events, and lively baraat scenes. Aashirwad Palace offered a unique location for the couple to celebrate a super fun Sangeet that was just the prelude to their wedding day. This dance festival was just the perfect way to inaugurate and officially welcome all their loved ones to their wedding festivities. Early spring days can be chilly, but they can also be one of the most beautiful times of the year. I'm glad these two opted for this lovely season to tied the knot as their big day was just as delightful as a summer day! They ensured all guests stayed cozy as they warmed up the temperature, dancing all the way to the doorsteps of the Brooklake Country Club & Events. The ceremony was backdropped by the rolling green hills and pristine waters of this splendid outdoor space. It was also framed by an adorable open mandap structure that featured bright color flowers that contrasted just perfectly with the silvery sky. Heaters provided warmth for the couple and guests during the many Hindu wedding rituals. In the meantime, their large bridesmaids and groomsmen squad dressed up in deep sky blue ensembles formed a large procession that escorted the newlyweds into their new life. How beautiful! Kinjal looked like the ultimate Maharani in a red cherry bridal lehenga she cleverly combined with a long gold dupatta, and Raja Shilp donned a mint and gold sherwani suit that turned him into a dashing prince. Such a stylish couple! There is no other better way than departing from the ceremony in a luxury car, which is precisely what the new husband and wife did. They added a touch of luxe to their goodbye moment, riding a beautiful red Lamborghini into their happily ever after. Loving these wedding ideas? Get inspired by this film only hit the play button and make them a reality on your wedding day.

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were walking past each other and I tripped. He caught me at the perfect time and we landed in a dip. Time slowed down and the music started serenading. We knew it was love at first sight.

Just kidding! We met the traditional way...on a dating app! After a few dates and a lot of pizza, I knew he was the one when he could out-quote The Office to me. (But he knew sooner!)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Since we started dating, we had been dreaming about a trip to Ireland together. I had been obsessing over Ireland since my last 3 trips and had wanted to show Shilp the magic. We took an epic trip with our 4 friends driving around the countryside, stopping by tiny pubs and ended at the Cliffs of Moher overlooking the castle on the hill. In that moment, Shilp made my favorite spot in the world even more special by getting down on one knee!

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.
To be honest, we credit Dr Rina Desai, my mom, for planning and re-planning our wedding once it was rescheduled because of Covid! Both our families really chipped in and made this as stress-free as possible. We knew we wanted old-school maharani-style wedding outfits and an organic/rustic, simple feel for the decor. Nirali made our decor vision come to life! Brooklake Country Club and all of the people who work there made it extraordinarily easy to put this together. Rita Suthar my make-up artist (who I've known for 15 years), read my mind for my makeup/hair styling. DJ Gaurav played phenomenal sets that make even dance-challenged people get out on the dance floor. Nathan and his team at Lightyear Studio captured every bit of magic that weekend. This wedding was thanks to our family and all of these people! We know how much they worked to bring this dream to life!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted an all red wedding lengha. I went wedding dress shopping with my parents, Shilp and his parents, to try on different fabrics and lengha styles. I landed on a bright red, velvet style based on the richness of the look and the depth of the color. My mom then went to India to for all my wedding outfit shopping as I was unable to go myself.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Since we were forced to scale the event down, the guests who attended were our closest family and friends. We were able to have one on one time with our guests dancing, eating, taking pictures. I think our guests enjoyed the ease and the personal touch we were able to have at each event. Great food and drinks always helps!!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look was one of our most special moments. When we saw each other for the first time we both just burst out laughing, so happy and excited at the same time, followed by a big warm embrace. We took a breath to fully take in the moment and realize we had made it. We will never forget that.

I also shared a moment with my dad earlier in the morning when he saw me for the first time in my bridal outfit. It was full of emotion and so incredibly special.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The planning can be long and stressful no matter what size or style of wedding you are having. The one most important piece of advice from us to you is to enjoy the day (or days!). Enjoy the small moments with your family and friends, be present, laugh, take a picture in that photobooth, cheers with your signature cocktail, tear it up on the dance floor (even if your hair gets ruined). The time goes by so fast and the most cherished memories we have are from the times we spent together with our family and friends. Also unlike us, don't forget to eat something more than dessert at the reception!

I'm so happy you could join us and relived Kinjal & Shilp's special day! Thank you so much. Hope to see you tomorrow.

Long Island, NY Sikh Wedding by With This Ring Wedding Films

Welcome to this new week, Maharanis! We are here with a new film that will blow your mind. Today we are double featuring Avneet & Raymon's magical wedding! That means that you can firs enjoy the fantastic masterpiece that is waiting for you down below, and then you can also enjoy the fabulous shots captured by A.S. Nagpal Photography by just clicking hereBut let's start with the visual masterpiece created by  With This Ring Wedding Films, who caught every emotion and memory and transformed them into a beautiful film. Right from the top, we want to take a moment to appreciate the beauty of our gorgeous Maharani, Avneet. She trusted her beauty needs to Kanwal Batool, who delivered nothing but perfection in the flawless makeup and hairstyle designed for this Maharani! To add an extra touch of traditional style,  Mehndikalogie created a fabulous Mehndi designed that we loved so much. During this visual journey, you will find yourself surrounded by all the beauty of the Sikh ceremony officiated at the grand Plainview Gurudwara, which then led to a grand reception party hosted at the fantastic Villa Lombardi's. Every corner was filled with magical decor created by our friends from Exclusive Events NY. And oh boy, we so wish we would have been there, as it all looks so amazing! If you want to relive this grand celebration, go ahead and hit play down below. 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Raymon and I met at Sikh Camp when we were 14 years old. There were a group of boys playing a pick-up game of basketball, and I really wanted to play as well. Raymon was the team captain, and a mutual friend told him to pick "Avi" without him knowing that it was me. We played a couple games of basketball and I was instantly attracted to his skill. After that encounter, we chatted nearly everyday on Aol Instant Messenger and have been inseparable ever since. I knew he was "the one" pretty early on, but from high school through medical school Raymon has always pushed me to work harder and be the best version of myself, in a way that no one else was capable of doing. That's how I knew that we had a unique connection.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Raymon knows me better than I know myself, and planned our proposal intricately. It was the weekend of our Residency Match Day, so there were a lot of emotions already as we both matched into programs that we really wanted to train at. He wanted to celebrate with a weekend getaway to Montreal, and told me to pack and dress well. He picked me up from my parents house and I was under the assumption we'd be traveling to Montreal. Instead, he took me around my hometown with a beautiful lunch and a stroll through the park. In the park, he gave me a personalized picture book that took us through the journey of our relationship from high school onwards. The last page said, "and our next chapter awaits...", at that point he played my favorite song from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai and took me onto a beautiful bridge over a pond that was decorated with a banner that said "Will You Marry Me?" We then had a mini photoshoot and went home to tell my parents. When we got home, our friends and family of nearly 100 people were waiting for us on the driveway to celebrate, and we had an amazing engagement party that night!
 
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 had so much fun planning our wedding! I think the most challenging part was picking a venue that had our time frame available and fit all of our criteria. We explored many different venues from NYC to NJ, and ultimately fell in love with Villa Lombardi's in Long Island, NY. Once we had our reception venue set, everything else fell into place. I used Maharani Weddings for vender suggestions and was really happy with our results. Through different suggestions we were able to put together a vender group that worked together to bring our dream wedding to reality.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I've always had an idea of how I wanted my bridal outfit to be. I love the color fuchsia and was pretty set on it prior to even beginning shopping. We went to India for a couple weeks which was a unique experience in itself, but after several days of exploring different options, I decided I wanted to completely customize my outfit to my liking. I ended up choosing a magenta color with floral work on the lower half, and simple beaded work on the upper half. I wore an Anarkali for the Anand Karaj.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was trying to envision what our guests would love the most. We wanted to throw in little surprises here and there to optimize our guests experience. For example, we had a unique traditional Punjabi video shoot in Punjab that was so much fun shooting. We kept it a secret for months without sharing any photos with friends or family. We showed the video during our reception and everyone was shocked but loved it. It was very much so out of our comfort zone but we knew it would be loved and appreciated.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests gave us great feedback on our wedding weekend. We are very punctual people and wanted to make sure our wedding events were well organized and had a good flow to them. Besides that, two particular moments come to mind that our guests really loved.
We had a day between our Sangat and Anand Karaj to relax and for smaller events. We decided to use that time to bring our friends and family together in a unique way by hosting a Bride Vs Groom Wedding Olympics. Our cousins actually hosted this event for us, and hired an event company to come in with different kinds of relays and games in a field day type event. Everyone got customized T-shirts depending on which side of the family they were. Then, multiple teams were made to mix up the friends and family as a great way to mingle and get to know one another. Everyone had a lot of fun participating in friendly competition. It was a unique experience for everyone and we ended the event with a Mr. Softee Ice Cream truck to relive our childhood days.
Another moment that guests loved was during the reception, my parents surprised us by flying out a Dhol group from the UK, Beats by Lion. They did an incredible job getting the party started and bringing everyone onto the dance floor for the entire night.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I always think about our dances - we choreographed one for the Sangeet and Reception together. Raymon and I were captain's of our bhangra team in College, so dance is really meaningful to us. We had a lot of fun choreographing our traditional Bhangra dance for the Sangeet, and a western fusion dance for our reception. I love to reply and watch the videos of our dance because it is evident how happy we are in those moments to be together on the dance floor.
 
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.
For our decor themes, we wanted a very traditional sangeet. We actually let our parents have a lot of fun with the decor and bring out their creativity. I think my favorite part of the decor was having the kites hanging from the ceiling over the dance floor. It gave such a unique vibe and really brought the whole hall together. Our Anand Karaj we kept on the simpler side because we wanted the beauty of the Gurudwara to shine on its own. We used florals that matched well with our theme of Peach & Teal. For our reception, we wanted to go elegant and classy. We went with a floral theme with lots of pastels and candles spread throughout the hall. But, ultimately the venue itself was so beautiful. Our wedding was in September, which in NY is my favorite month because the flowers are in full bloom. The outdoor area for our cocktail hour was full of beautiful flowers and greenery.
Our Sangeet was full of dances, singing, and speeches from our loved ones. My favorite movie growing up was Kaho Na Pyaar Hai and my favorite actor was Hrithik Roshan. Our friends and family loved to make references to that throughout their dances and speeches, especially because Raymon proposed to me playing that theme song in the background.
  
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My advice for future brides would be to stay calm and start planning early! It is great to have enough time to really explore the different options available and decide what you love the most. Having a basic idea of how you envision your wedding to be is fundamental to having a smooth planning process. Organization is key – lots and lots of excel sheets that keep all the details straight! And most importantly, it’s ok to ask your loved ones for help and delegate tasks. Ultimately, you’ll have the final decision but to have some extra hands doing the basic research is really beneficial!
 
If you loved this film, I bet that you will adore tomorrow's. So come back for more!
