Clearwater, FL Indian Wedding by Riant Films

Hey there, dolls! Today we have a celebration that was truly blessed by the sun! Aarti & Vinay decided to celebrate their union with the roaring ocean as their witness and of course that our friends from Riant Films were there to capture all the wedding fun. R.A.G.Artistry was also there and managed to snap all the wonderful stills we admired in our previous photo feature. This gorgeous Maharani had everything under control for her big day of magic. When the Maharani is about to tie the knot she is a wedding planner herself, and ensures that every detail is taken care of! To assist the couple with the striking floral and decor, our good friends from Occasions by Shangri-la. Their undeniably skills and talent were put to the test, and as we well see for today's film, it was just magical! What was also magical was Maharani Aarti's fashion choices. She was just glowing from top to toe in every single one of the rituals and Michele Renee The Studio was in part to blame for that. She crafted her hair and makeup and the result was an Indian princess for the books! The Hilton Clearwater Beach trembled with these two! So, ladies, today's film requires some tissues because happiness tears will be on its way! Join us!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband, Vinay lived in D.C., and I lived in Atlanta. I visited D.C. for my sister's birthday. We met in D.C. at Fig & Olive at Vandana’s birthday dinner. It was no love at first sight, by we immediately connected over an exchange of bad online dating experiences and interestingly, agreed to become each other’s, dating consultants. In the process of helping each other figure out how to date successfully, we found our friendship growing while spending hours on the phone together and felt connected over our love for elephants, Amazon shopping and shoes. After an amazing weekend-long date together in October 2015, we definitely knew there was something special between us. I'm not really the over-sentimental type, so I never really had a "you're the one" moment, rather many "this feels right" moments. 

 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Vinay planned a surprise trip to Utah to go hiking in Mt. Zion. He told me that we were going to have a date night, and had me picked up in an Uber from work, which drove me to the airport. I was very confused, but he met me as the car pulled up to the departures gate. He sweetly and cleverly had packed my suitcase with everything I could possibly need. Once we reached Vegas, we drove to Utah. We went for a sunrise hike, and he proposed as the sun came up over the canyons. It was a beautiful proposal with just the two of us in sight for miles. We followed up the proposal with a few hikes in Mt. Zion and a fun day in Vegas. 
 
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.
Being a wedding planner myself (many years ago), we didn't need too much guidance going into the initial planning. One of the first things we did, was to gather both our families for a meeting, gave each member a post-it note and asked them to write down the top 3 aspects they envisioned for or at the wedding. We wanted to incorporate the things they envisioned when we created our vision. Vinay and I really wanted to have a destination wedding, and luckily the parents' were delighted about it as well. The hardest decision was selecting the venue, cause we had no clue what state, what city we wanted be get married in. We contacted venues in San Diego, Scottsdale, Denver, Charleston, Miami, and a few beach venues on the east coast. Through a friend, Tampa got on our radar, and from there, we selected Hilton Clearwater Beach & Resort. We didn't know why it took so long for us to figure that out since we both love water, and had talked about getting married on the beach many times. Once we signed the contract with the venue, the rest just fell into place. We hired a local wedding planner, Sokha Im with Apsara Events, for mostly wedding week coordination. She was just absolutely incredible, and could not have done it without her. Food being the most important aspect for Vinay and me, we wanted a stronghold over quality. After a tasting with a restaurant in Orlando, we went with Cafe Bombay out of Atlanta.  I have worked with him many times in Atlanta and knew they could deliver the quality and the variety of food styles. They brought a team of 10, and two trucks of newly bought food presentation trays and decor. They bought most of the vegetables in Tampa, and everything was cooked only hours before each event. Decor design was second important to us. We spoke with Suhaag Garden and Occasions by Shangri-La, but after many phone calls about our vision, OBS was just a better fit for us. With us loving water, and me being an outdoorsy person, the theme was easy for us. It needed to represent us, and what we love most. We went with the 5 elements of earth found in Ayurveda - Fire, Water, Air, Earth, and Space. Remmel and his team executed the theme flawlessly! We loved our boho design for the Sangeet, and the simplistic mandap with wood pillars and the ocean as a backdrop, and an enchanted forest feel for the reception. Our hair and makeup team, Michelle Renee Salon, were so incredibly nice and kept our looks natural and elegant. My husband wanted to surprise our guests by learning to play the dhol, so took lessons with Sagar Patel, Dholi Saag, who also our dholi for the Sangeet and Wedding. The first vendor we signed was our photographer, Rachael Ann Gliebe with RAG Artistry, who I knew all along had to shoot our wedding. She's a magician, and definitely glammed us up! I love how flawless she made us look. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We went to India for our wedding shopping, and I knew which stores I wanted to visit. My mom owned an Indian clothing boutique in Atlanta for 8 years, so we have suppliers that we trust and love in India. I bought my wedding outfit from Frontier Heritage and knew I did not want to wear red on my wedding day since I was young. I had always wanted to wear a dark blue, but after finalizing the beach for our wedding, wanted to make sure I did not want to blend into the background water. I decided on a pastel theme and found a gorgeous 2 shaded green. My husband went with a contrast light pink tone with a  design matching mine. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Without a doubt, it had to be the food tastings. We are foodies and loved making the menu, tasting all the dishes, giving notes on how we wanted it to taste, and making the final selection. Also, it was a task that the entire family got to enjoy, and we got to spend time with them. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Most of our friends and family still talk about how much they loved our wedding weekend, and it wasn't one particular moment for them, but the overall feel of the weekend. We wanted everyone to treat our wedding as a vacation, and that's exactly what they got. We had a pool party organized between the haldi and sangeet so our friends and family can all still hang out together. Even both our immediate families were there, relaxed and having a good time. We didn't want to stress our parents out at all, cause all too often weddings are mostly fun for the guests, while the parents and siblings are running around and taking care of tasks in the background. For that same reason, we didn't have bridesmaids and groomsmen so they can also relax and spend time with their significant others.  As the bride and groom, we stayed extremely relaxed, didn't stress out about the small things, and got to spend quality time with our guests. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our most favorite event was the Sangeet, cause its where we got to show our personality and incorporate our favorite things the best. Our favorite moment was definitely getting to play flip cup with our friends and family! We loved all the games we set up under the party tent. For my husband, he will never forget coming in on jetskis for his bharat with his best friends! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Oh man, I could write a 5 page paper for this question, but I think the number #1 advice would be to Just enjoy the weekend, and don't sweat the small things that don't go as planned. No matter how much planning goes into a wedding, some things still slip through the cracks. Secondly, rank the priority of vendors and set a realistic budget. We sent paperless post invites cause paper invites that everyone throws away didn't make any sense to us. We chose a free website to create our page, and did a few DIY decor projects for the wedding and gave it to Remmal. It's not a huge saving but still makes a difference. 
 
Thanks for watching, dolls! Don't miss our next wedding film tomorrow.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Jay and I had planned a trip to Bermuda for a short vacation. I had planned most of the details of the trip but little did I know Jay was planning his own surprise. We had gotten ready early for a nice dinner one evening and Jay suggested we go down to the beach to take pictures. As we headed down to the beach at sunset, I turned the corner and found the most romantic dinner set up with roses and candles all right next to the ocean.
I was completely surprised and just remember that feeling of being the happiest I’ve ever been with the man of my dreams! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We made a family trip to India and I had always pictured a deep pink, almost rosy lehnga color. I was able to find just that! I loved the different colors my lehenga had- orange, yellow-green details
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone was most impressed with the decor and the food! I think we had made some great choices for the food with a lot of variety! The desserts made by the Ritz were also amazing!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first time I walked in and saw the ceremony mandap setup- it was so beautiful and perfectly put together. My vision that had been building for the past year of bringing a garden indoors was finally real! And I loved the cute elephants at the entrance 
 
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 loved the decor for all my events- tried to keep the garden them throughout!
My haldi was at our house outside on the deck with a beautiful backdrop of green trees and a yellow open mini mandap covered in marigolds and fresh jasmine
My mehndi has a backdrop of a green wall with orchids fun henna decor! We had a bangle and bindi bazaar favor table for the guests
The Sangeet had a Moroccan then with 7 different food stations and lots of fun prints and color!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We had unique beautiful wedding favors- henna design macaroons that were delicious! It was definitely something fun and perfect for an Indian wedding!

 

See you tomorrow loves!

Flowers were blooming and the majestic trees, dress in tones of green, olive, teal, and all earthly colors.

Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Lightyear Studio has for us a stellar wedding to end our week with a bang and enough inspiration to last throughout our holiday weekend! Juhi & Vinnie enlisted Platinum Dream Events to spearhead their wedding weekend, the wedding day began with a joyful baraat procession complete with colorful smoke bombs. I absolutely love the groomsmen floral vests! The Marigold welcomed the guests into a floral oasis beautifully lighted with a soft pink color scheme. In our bride's own words about her favorite moment: My wedding entrance! It was the happiest and most overwhelming moment of my whole life. I was walking towards my future husband. How romantic! Our stylish lovebirds had a first look photo session before their reception where they danced with joy in front of Marigold's iconic marble gazebo and took the party inside where Luxe Entertainment kept the dancefloor packed all night long! Hit play and enjoy!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through mutual friends and our first date was on December 21, 2015 (hard to forget especially because he got it engraved on my engagement ring). Since he was from Philly and I was from NJ I planned our first date. We were supposed to go to Maggianos in Bridgewater but of course, I got lost and couldn’t find it. He had to end up sending me his location, but hey the date lasted 8 hours. After dinner, we went bowling, followed by a diner. Honestly, I knew he was the one, day one. He had this charisma to him, he took my breath away. I was like who is this guy and where has he been my whole life. A year and a half later we were engaged!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
So Vinnie told that we had someone’s proposal to attend to. We were supposed to hide somewhere with the rest of his friends as one of his other friends proposed. Mind you this was at 8 AM, I thought to myself why in the world is this guy proposing to his girl this early, does he want her to say yes?! I was told that this was going down at the eagle rock reservation. That morning Vinnie tells me the proposal venue changed to a place in Paterson. I go “who the heck proposes in Paterson what’s there?). We get to this beautiful waterfall, like a mini Niagra Falls. I see balloons that said MARRY ME, he even points to it and goes look at the decor! We approach a table and I said I don’t think this is the right spot and started walking the other way, but he pulls my hand back towards him and went down on his knees. I was absolutely shocked!! Love this guy 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
So I actually had in my head to get an all red and gold lengha for the wedding and that is all I kept trying on. Vinnie actually was with me (I needed his opinions). He finally suggests that I try on other styles and colors as well. I started doing that and started trying on other outfits. I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful white and red lengha!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
If I’m being totally honest, the only part of wedding planning I enjoyed was food tasting! It was the least stressful party of wedding planning lol
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My wedding entrance! It was the happiest and most overwhelming moment of my whole life. I was walking towards my future husband. The feeling is totally unexplainable and even though my eyes were filled with happy tears, I wouldn’t change that moment for anything. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Take breaks, make lists and A LOT of them. At every event take a moment and observe everything and everything around you because I promise you it goes by so fast. Most of all BREATHE! 
 

I wish you a safe and happy holiday weekend!
