Long Beach, CA Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Good morning, beautiful ladies! We were dying to get back to you as we have a film that will surely take your breath away. Today, we'll be taking a look at all the beauty surrounding Divya & Nehal's big wedding celebration. If the name of these lovebirds sounds familiar to you, it is because we already featured their wedding bash with a gorgeous gallery that you can check here. However, there was so much finery to admire that we decided to relive this grand event. This time, Peter Nguyen Studio is ready to take your breath away with a cinematographic delight showcasing the highlights of the celebration that united Divya & Nehal un marriage. And believe us, this grand event celebrated inside the halls of the Hotel Maya - a DoubleTree by Hilton is an absolute visual delight, and a dream come true. And talking about dreams that come true, take a moment to admire the ravishing look of our gorgeous Maharani Divya. She was stunning throughout the entire celebration, thanks to Angievacamakeup, who took care of all her beauty needs in such a spectacular way that we cannot stress how much we loved it. If you are like us and can't wait to jump into this rollercoaster of emotions, hit the play icon below and get ready to be amazed by this unforgettable celebration!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Nehal through mutual friends at UCLA. I was a wide-eyed freshman and he was a too-cool-for school junior who loved to clown on me. I was always attracted to him, but I never thought we would end up together because we were just friends. It wasn't until the end of my sophomore year when his texts became more frequent and our chats lasted until 2 AM, when I realized that something was brewing between us. As soon as we started dating I knew that he was the one for me, because I just couldn't see myself marrying someone other than him. Nehal and I connected so well, he treated me and my family so well, and he made me laugh and smile almost every second of the day.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was convinced through fake emails that one of Nehal's friends was getting engaged in San Diego, and that we would attend to surprise the bride to be. When we arrived at the Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, I was surprised to find that Nehal and I were the "first to arrive" before the couple and the other guests. However, the photographer then arrived and asked Nehal and I if she could take "test shots" of us on the cliffs to prepare for the real couple's proposal. As Nehal and I positioned ourselves gazing toward the ocean, Nehal started to get on one knee and proceeded to tell me how he always knew that he was going to marry me. Despite the fact that he put the ring on the wrong finger, I of course said yes with tears of joy!
 
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.
Pinterest boards and multiple lists helped me stay organized in regard to choosing my hair/makeup, outfits, jewelry, decor theme, colors, and mehndi. We chose Hotel Maya, because we absolutely loved the venue when we attended my cousin's wedding. We also used some of the same vendors from my sister's wedding (i.e., caterer, makeup artist, decorator), because we had such a great experience with them 2 years prior.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was in love with the colors and intricate work of Sabyasachi wedding lenghas, so I knew I wanted one with a similar design. I have always loved the colors maroon and coral pink, so it was easy for me to choose these two colors for my wedding lengha when I saw Sabyasachi lenghas with this color scheme. My cousin knew a store owner in India, so we sent him pictures of the maroon and coral pink Sabyasachi wedding lengha that I wanted. Through many Whatsapp texts, calls, and pictures between the owner and my cousin we were able to find the perfect lengha that fit my vision. The owner then took my measurements through text, altered the outfit, and shipped it over to me in time for the big day.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the wedding process was creating a vision for our wedding by deciding on the color scheme, decor theme, and outfits. It was fun skimming through Pinterest boards and bouncing ideas off of friends and family to help shape the vibe and look of the wedding. It was even more fun seeing how our vision came together so well on the day of the wedding, thanks to our amazing team.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Many guests fell in love with our venue Hotel Maya. They raved about the beautiful view of the marina that was visible during the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The layout and decor of the hotel was also very unique and modern, which set a nice vibe for our guests throughout their stay. Many of our guests also loved the food that was catered from Mantra at the reception. They fell in love with the unique appetizers (e.g., Indian style bean and cheese tacos) and authentic North Indian dinner.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I will never forget those two moments when I was dancing with my new husband at our wedding reception. The surprise entrance dance is so memorable because it was so fun seeing our guests' surprised reactions as they cheered for us. Their energy made it so fun to bust it down on the dance floor with my new hubby. It was also special sharing the first dance with my husband. It was the only moment during the day when I felt so connected to him that I forgot about everyone else in the room.
 
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 had my henna party at the banquet hall of Tandoori Gardens in Anaheim. It was a night filled with amazing food (e.g., vegetable biriyani, samosa chaat, corn kebab), music, dancing, and of course mehndi. To add to the entertainment my best friend delivered a thoughtful and funny speech. We also had many danced performed by my nieces/nephews, my mother and aunts, and by yours truly. The banquet hall itself was beautifully set up; we simply added flowers and floating candles to add some color. We chose a turquoise light to illuminate the hall, to match my turquoise lengha.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I truly enjoyed my wedding and reception because I made a conscious decision not to stress on that day. I told myself that there was literally no way to change anything on the wedding day, and I allowed my coordinators to take the reins allowing me to just be present and not worry about the details. By placing trust in my team and making the conscious effort to not nit-pick or stress, I had so much fun hanging out with loved ones and appreciating the fruits of our labor.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Jewelry: I chose choker necklace sets with matching earrings and tikka. Two sets were bought on Amazon, and one was bought at Sari Palace in Artesia.
 
Decor: I chose an Enchanted theme for the reception with greenery and a color scheme of champagne gold and white. The table decor consisted of trees, flowers, hanging crystals, and votive candles. My lengha at the reception also mimicked this color scheme against the giant greenery backdrop.
 
Cake: We actually chose to eliminate a cake so we could replace the cake cutting ceremony with more time to hang out with guests! Instead, we served mini desserts (cheesecake, cake pops, fruit tarts) from Great Dane Bakery.
 
Venue: We used the Vista Del Mar Pavilion for the wedding ceremony because it had a great view of the marina. This same area was lit up for the cocktail hour with cozy bonfire pits that guests were able to sit around sipping on their drinks and mingling. The reception was held in the ballroom with windowed walls to provide a constant view of the lit up marina.
 
Mehndi: I chose to make my mehndi fun by adding a Nike sign, UCLA logo, Lakers logo, my husband's name, and our wedding date scattered between my two arms.
 
Nike Bowties: My husband is known to wear Nike everyday; hence, the hashtag. Thus, we had a Nike bow tie made for my husband which said "Just Married" with a Nik swoosh. He wore this bow tie at the reception, while the groomsmen wore matching maroon bowties with Nike swooshes on it.
 
Snacks at Wedding: At the wedding ceremony, we placed a decorative pouch/purse on each chair filled with sweet and savory snacks. Our guests mentioned that they really appreciated having these snacks to munch on during the ceremony.


That is all for today, darlings! See you on Monday for more!

Scottsdale, AZ Indian Fusion Wedding by D.P. Weddings

TGIF Beautiful ladies! The end of this phenomenal week is here, and we don't want to conclude it without giving you the filmy time of the day! That's right. Today we have a fantastic visual masterpiece prepared just for you, thanks to the talented team from D.P. Weddings. They made sure to capture every single moment from Supriya & Steven's wedding ceremony for our enjoyment! And if this is not enough, you can relive this celebration by visiting this jaw-dropping gallery by Rachel Solomon Photography. Our lovely duo chose the McCormick Ranch Golf Club for all the pre-wedding events and the Royal Palms Resort and Spa for the fusion wedding ceremony and reception. Supriya, our beautiful Maharani, stole everyone's attention with her innate beauty and showcasing a fantastic Mehndi art designed by Henna by Purvi. The wedding ceremony was so lovely, and the wedding reception seemed like taken out of a fairy tale. Mainly because of the live music played by Lucky Devils Band, who turned this gala into an epic party. Today, you are one click away from all the amazingness that surrounded this wedding celebration! So don't think twice and click play below!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Stevie on January 4th, 2018, following an introduction on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. Our first date was on the day that the Bomb Cyclone blanketed New York City in snow. We met for drinks at Bobby Van's near Grand Central Station, because it was one of the few places that remained open. Time seemed to pause, along with the outside world, as we chatted for hours!
 
I was struck by Stevie’s quiet confidence, wit, and uncanny familiarity. I felt as though I already knew him -- on our first date alone, there was an easy and natural balance between us. To my friends, I referred to him as “Steady Stevie," and that last part has stuck. Within just a few weeks of dating, I told my mom (much to her alarm) that I knew I was going to marry him. We ultimately chose January 4th as our wedding day, as it is also the date we met!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
A year after we met, Stevie fittingly chose to propose in Grand Central Station on a beautiful evening in January! I met up with him at Grand Central Oyster Bar. We checked our coats and grabbed a glass of wine at the bar. Curiously, the Maître D' (who was in on it) said there would be a long wait even though the place was empty. So to kill time, we drifted over to the Whispering Gallery and eventually the Main Concourse. There, Stevie told me we were going on a journey; which train did I think we were taking? Perplexed, my concern was that we had left our coats (and wine!) at the restaurant. He said not to worry, and gestured at the balcony overlooking the concourse, where I suddenly saw my parents waving. When I turned back around, Stevie was on one knee, with heartfelt words and a big smile on his face.
 
The rest of the night is a blur of glee -- champagne and hors d'oeuvres with my family at Bobby Vans (where we had our first date), a casual pit stop to see Hamilton on Broadway, and a surprise afterparty at my favorite bar, Ted's, where my brother had gathered a group of our closest friends! The night ended at 4 am, with Dollar Pizza on 3rd Avenue. We will forever thank New York City for bringing us together, a boy from Arizona and a girl from India.
 
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 a destination wedding in my groom's hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. Since we live in New York, we found ourselves in the capable hands of my Arizona wedding planner, Laurie Stricklin! I had weekly calls with Laurie, who would find vendors to match my ideas. We also had 3-weekend trips to  finalize decisions in person.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a vision for my white wedding dress being ultra-feminine with lots of lace detail. I went shopping with my mom at Kleinfeld Bridal and immediately fell in love with a gorgeous Pnina Tornai off-shoulder neckline and sheer lace bodice. The designer herself, Pnina, was there in person and helped me customize the rest of the dress: a soft A-line silhouette with a modest train. I have a video with her, as I said Yes to the Dress!
 
For my Sangeet lengha, I found myself drawn to modern Indian design, as opposed to the more traditional heavily-beaded florals. I've always loved vibrant colors and patterns, and so I chose a bright turquoise + pink lengha with gold accents! With my groom in gold, and our wedding party in teal and pink, we felt it all came together really well.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
We know we come from very different backgrounds, cultures, and religious traditions. So throughout the planning process, our North Star was the idea of "One True Fusion Ceremony," which was a lot of fun to brainstorm!
 
We wanted the important elements of each of us represented. I wore a white dress as a nod to Stevie’s culture, and he wore an Indian suit for me. My bridesmaids represented my tradition in red lenghas, and the groomsmen represented his culture, in black tuxedos. Our ceremony featured both a western Officiant and a Hindu Pandit. We had Bible Readings and Hindu Mantras, recited our own Vows and even Broke the Glass. Our wedding had everything from the Henna to the Horah! Even our hashtag (#OneLesserMenon) combined both our last names and embraced the spirit of unity.
 
Before the wedding day we had a Mehendi, Rehearsal Dinner, and Sangeet -- this rounded out all the traditions of our families. It was a wonderful, colorful, and authentic wedding for the two of us.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think the thing that the guests appreciated the most was embracing a cultural element that they weren't accustomed to! Many of my Indian family members had never experienced toasts at a Rehearsal dinner, never seen a bride in a white dress, and never danced to a Horah! Stevie's side of the family loved picking out Indian outfits for the Sangeet, getting Henna done on their hands, and watching our "mystical" Hindu ceremony. Many of our friends loved practicing together for Sangeet performances, and donning bright kurtas, saris, and ornate jewelry. We hope every guest got to experience something unique, and authentic to our fusion wedding.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I absolutely LOVED watching my "gora" groom perform bhangra at our Sangeet, alongside two seasoned Indian friends! He has always been a great dancer, but it was absolutely incredible -- the whole crowd was cheering and I think his side of the family was stunned! It really warmed my heart that he wanted to embrace the Indian culture and do something that required stepping completely outside of his comfort zone.
 
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.
We tried to weave in authentic, important pieces of our story throughout the wedding. For our first dance we chose the song "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, because this was actually the first song we danced to, a few weeks into dating! Signature drinks at our reception were based on our favorite cocktails. At the afterparty in our hotel suite, we had my groom's favorite: In-N-Out burgers, fries, and shakes. Too many details to recount here!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Being a very planning-oriented person, I made a conscious decision to just let go and be present the week of the wedding. You've done all the hard work, now soak up every moment, and ENJOY!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Our wedding gifts to each other were so special! We wanted to gift each other things that would become our family's heirlooms -- our story forever passed down along with them. Stevie is a big watch-enthusiast, so I surprised him with a classic and timeless Patek Philippe dress watch. I had the back of the case engraved with the words, "January 4, 2020. Until the end of time." He got me a stunning 3.5-carat Infinity ring, with 20 oval diamonds to represent the year we got married.
 
If you loved this love story, wait to see what we have prepared for you on Monday. So visit us back!

Snow Hill, MD Indian Fusion Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Good morning, Maharanis! We are beginning a new phenomenal week, and along with it, a new filmy time is here! So get ready to be amazed by all the beauty overflowing from Sonal & Patrick's big wedding festivities. The ceremonies held at the marvelous Kyland Barn and also at the exclusive Castle Farm Inc were out of this world. Yes, this celebration had two beautiful ceremonies that left everyone speechless. You will love how two different cultures and families gather to celebrate the promise of eternal love of their favorite ones. If this love story sounds familiar is because we have previously presented you this magical celebration thanks to the photos captured by Lightyear Studio, which you can relive here. The beauty from Sonal delighted everyone, especially by the mehndi art that Bhavna’s Henna and Arts created for her. We can't conclude this post without mentioning the amazing reception party held at Castle Farm Inc. Everyone enjoyed the phenomenal beats from Luxe Event Entertainment, who turned this gala into a marvelous and memorable party. It was the best way to conclude this celebration. So don't think twice and click the play icon below. I know that you will enjoy this visual masterpiece created by Lightyear Studio. It is mindblowing!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Patrick and I met during our first year of dental school in Boston, MA. We were just casual friends until we went on our first date during our third year. I realized he was the man I was going to marry when we did long distance for a year after dental school - I was doing my residency in North Carolina and he was stationed in Maryland as a dentist in the Army. Going in, we were both nervous about long-distance, but we drove to each other every other weekend and the year was done before we knew it. I know long distance is hard, but this felt like a breeze!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was obsessed with dark green and gold as the overall color scheme for the wedding so I decided to have a dress designed in those colors. A lot of my friends and cousins sent me various dress styles and I fell in love with this dark green, gold, and pink floral lehenga. My cousin in India had her tailor recreate a similar version of the dress in silk (yes, I did pick out the silk in India over video chat). The blouse was hand-embroidered and I was insistent that it has a high neck so I could wear a long necklace with it - I had this vision in my mind and I wasn't quite sure how it would turn out. It took about 4 months once the tailor started making it but once it was done, my cousin refused to let me see it over WhatsApp because she wanted it to be a surprise. My brother brought it back from India just a couple of weeks before the wedding. I saw it and tried it on for the first time one week before my wedding and IT.WAS.PERFECTION.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was making wedding decisions with each other. We worked really well together (for the most part, haha) and I feel like I had a 50-50 partner throughout the whole process, making it much more efficient and stress-free than it could've been. We had less than a year to plan our 3-day celebration and I don't think I could have managed it without Pat's help and support.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests absolutely loved the venues we chose on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The Grah Shanti/Peethi and Mehndi/Sangeet were at Kylan Barn in Delmar, MD. It's a barn-style wedding venue complete with a tractor, a pond, and string lights everywhere. Our Hindu wedding, American wedding, and reception were at Castle Farm in Snow Hill, MD, which is a breathtaking Andalusian equestrian farm turned wedding venue, horses and all. Both locations are very non-traditional for an Indian wedding and that's what made it unique and enchanting. Patrick's guests also really enjoyed experiencing different cultural events and food. And of course, EVERYONE loved the extensive open bar on Friday and Saturday nights.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
In addition to my moments with Patrick, my most memorable moment was being in the limo with my mom, my sister, my brother and the bridesmaids right before the American wedding ceremony started. The amount of love, excitement, and support packed into that vehicle was overwhelming and everything was perfect in that moment... not to mention the part where my mom (who doesn't drink) started popping champagne bottles and filling up everyone's flutes.
 
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.
My bridal henna was done by Bhavna Naik. She does fusion henna, incorporating the bride and groom's personal stories with traditional henna designs. I sent her the details on how Patrick and I met, our personal interests, our families, etc. and she put together a custom design incorporating my favorite designs. She even did a one hour consultation with me to go over all of this information and sent me sketches along the way to show her progress. I especially loved the Boston and Annapolis skylines which showed where we started and where we ended up. Everyone was in awe at how beautiful and intricate my design was.
 
Both of our venues had their own natural beauty and lots of greenery so Pat and I really wanted that to stand out. We decided to pick decor that wouldn't overshadow this element. Our pre-wedding events were vibrant with colorful drapes, decorated animal figurines, matlas, and floor cushions. Our wedding venue had more simple and elegant decor with ivory, muted gold, and light peach/pink tones to complement the green all around. To go with this theme, I opted for a naked cake with some florals with the same light hues.
 
Since Pat and I love horses and we were getting married at a venue that's all about horses, I figured, what better way to do our vidaai than in a horse carriage? He finally gave in to this whim of mine and it truly was magical.
 
The owner of Castle Farm custom-made the mandap for us because I wanted it to be made of wood. Our florist, Autumn decorated it based on pictures that I shared with her of what I envisioned. When I saw it walking out on my wedding day, it was exactly as elegant and graceful as I had pictured it.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The things I took away from the process are:
-Don't try to do it all yourself. Remember to delegate to people who know how to get the job done.
-Be on the same page as your partner and make sure your vision is the same.
-Take one day every week where you don't work on any wedding-related activities.
-Try to minimize any last-minute changes/additions because it will only add more stress when what you really need to do is relax!
-Make sure a few other people know the entire plan for the weekend, inside and out. You'll be so busy that you won't have time to troubleshoot anything when the big weekend comes.
-Once you're there, just enjoy it and let the small stuff go!
