Kalamazoo, MI Indian Wedding by Shan Photography

This one has everything you expect out of a superb Indian wedding celebration, ladies! Heartfelt moments, stunning fashion choices, colors and lots and lots of family members! Today, we have the pleasure to share with your beautiful selves, a couple that just shines so brightly. They are Sonali & Hitesh, and in case you missed their gorgeous picture gallery we had a couple of days ago, you can always go back here. Today, it is time to get comfortable, call you bridesmaids, open a bottle of wine and sigh because today's filmy is oh so beautiful! The Radisson Plaza Hotel at Kalamazoo Center was looking at its very best to house the gala, and as we will see, the scenography was just dreamlike! And speaking of dreams, guess who was looking like a real-life princess? Maharani Sonali just left everyone stunned and Makeup By Karishma knows a thing or two about that! Look at the colors of her makeup! So chic! We are so loving this bash, ladies, as you can probably tell. So time to press play and get enchanted by today's filmy brought to us by Shan Photography! Ready, set, action!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We matched on the Dil Mil dating app and talked for two months before finally deciding to meet in person in Chicago. He was in residency in St. Louis and I was in medical school in Detroit, so that was a good halfway point for us. We had talked on the phone and FaceTimed several times before meeting in person so it felt like I already knew him. We toured the city and eventually ended up sitting by the lakeshore talking about our lives, our goals, and our feelings. Honestly, I think I knew then that he was the one. I knew this was something special.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The whole story is also on our wedding website! And the scavenger hunt proposal cards were recently shared on Dil Mil's Instagram (link below).
 
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.
The wedding planning process is without a doubt a very stressful experience, but it was completely worth it. We did not hire a wedding planner because my family and I love planning events and we wanted to go about this our own way. We searched for vendors in both the Chicago and Detroit areas because the wedding was in my hometown Kalamazoo which is halfway between the two. Now as I look back, I couldn't have asked for anyone better. Everything was perfect and exactly the way I dreamed/wanted it to be.
 
Our venue coordinators at the Radisson (Lindsay and Sam) were PHENOMENAL from the day we booked the Radisson Plaza Hotel until the very end. They didn't have much experience with Indian weddings, but we were excited and willing to learn. We met several times to go over details and timelines and they didn't miss a thing. They were so key in keeping all the events running smoothly.
 
For hair and makeup, Karishma Mehta of Makeup By Karishma was also a dream come true. I shared pictures and Pinterest posts of the looks I was going for, and she nailed it. Each event was totally unique and totally perfect. At first, I struggled with an Indian vs non-Indian makeup artist due to costs. In the end, I am glad I chose Karishma because she was able to set my jewelry and do my draping without much additional instruction, allowing my mother, sister, and other family members to also get ready in a timely fashion.
 
Last but certainly not the least, we had the BEST DJ in the industry. DJ Mixta (Micky Singh of Singh Innovations) served as our DJ and MC. We met several times over the course of the planning process to go over timing, entrances, intros, and song selections. He was our personal hype man and to this day our guests RAVE about his charisma and his energy. He worked closely with our venue coordinators to ensure things were running in a timely fashion.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I definitely wanted a more traditional red and gold look for the wedding. Red is such a bold color and just screams bridal, and I couldn't imagine getting married in anything else. I spent one day in Rajouri Gardens in Delhi, trying on different styles and designs, but nothing clicked. I eventually ended up at CTC mall which was recommended by a friend. Their selection was unbelievable. My bridal lehenga happened to be the last one I tried on at the end of the night, right as the store was closing. When they draped it on me and I twirled around, I didn't need to look any further. I just knew I had found the right one.
 
On the other hand, searching for my reception gown turned out to be more difficult that I imagined. I searched high and low through Delhi and Vadodara trying to find the perfect dress. I had always envisioned a "Starry Night" themed reception and wanted a dress to match. Ideally, it would be navy blue and silver. But with the color trends these days, that was almost impossible to find. After days and days, and dresses on dresses, I finally arrived at Sequinze. The shopkeepers were determined to make my dream come true and pulled out their very best. The gown I chose fit me perfectly. It was silver and sparkly, and could perfectly complement a navy blue backdrop. They paired it with silver jewelry set from their store, and I felt like a princess.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I'm a total filmy Bollywood girl at heart. I absolutely loved picking songs with special meanings for each part of every event and our DJ was key in playing them at the right times. I also loved choreographing some of the dance performances! Danced with my bridesmaids at the sangeet, choreographed the first dance with my husband, and put together a fun skit/dance for the bridal party to perform at the reception.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The DJ's constant energy and enthusiasm pumping up the crowd for performances, entrances, and the open 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.
I have so many more thoughts and ideas, but it is impossible to share them all here. I would be happy to answer any specific questions by phone or email.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Friday is here, ladies, and that only means one thing: a brand new feature film for your beautiful selves! Some time ago, we had Charu & Manan's picture gallery and it was absolutely beautiful. In case you missed it, you can double-check all the glam here. Today, thanks to Lightyear Studio, we have all the awesomeness that went on their film, and we just know, you are going to love it as well. Looking for the perfect Maharani style for your upcoming day of magic? Well, then you have to check this bride. Her gorgeous and classic ruby saree plus the hair and makeup wonders of Makeup By Anu Sarin were the perfect combo to turn this doll into the Indian princess she was. The Marigold, beautifully decorated by the team from Elegant Affair, was at its very best to house the gala and was already in itself grand. So, what are you gals waiting for? Hit play below and get inspired!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband at the Olive Branch in New Brunswick at Rutgers Campus. We were both there with a group of friends and just happened to start chatting at the bar and never stopped talking from that day on. He wined and dined me and after the first official date, I remember calling up my best friend/maid of honor and telling her, "I think he's the one! I'm going to marry that guy." Something about him just stuck and I always wanted to be around him or talking to him and luckily it all worked out for the best!
 
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.
My husband and I both have experience in the wedding industry, him a bit more than me, so we sort of had the big things planned in our head before even putting pen to paper. We knew exactly which caterer, decorator, DJ, event planner, and photographer we wanted. We started with those and kept adding on from there. We ended up choosing the first venue that we looked at, which was the Marigold. We got married right at the beginning of wedding season on March 30, so all of the vendors were available and we locked everything in. 
 
Picking a hair and makeup artist is super important because you want to look and feel your best on your wedding day. I had only two trials and ended up picking my artist, Anu Sarin, right after the trial was done. It's important to work with someone who listens to what you want, makes changes based on how you feel in the look, and someone you trust. She and I got along from the beginning and she was very easy to work with which made me feel comfortable.
 
I knew that I wanted a beautiful, elegant, and romantic wedding theme, with light colors and whites and light pinks and candles. That's all I said when I went to the Elegant Affairs meeting, and they turned my vision into a reality. We had beautiful cherry blossom centerpieces, a bamboo mandap with white and light pink roses with greenery and a stunning flower wall. We had candelabras and hanging orbs and lots of candles. It was right out of a fairytale!
 
Picking the right DJ is extremely important because if your guests will remember anything from your wedding, its the food and the music! We went with DJ Sunny Entertainment and they KILLED it. From the Sangeet to the wedding reception, people were on the dance floor the entire night. It didn't even clear out for dinner. They helped us design our custom dance floor, our huge video wall, the sparklers and the fog clouds for our first dance. The emcee was high energy and kept the vibe going all night.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I got my wedding dress in Bombay and I had taken out a bunch of dresses to try on. I knew I wanted to wear a full red lehenga and green jewelry to contrast with it. I put on a few dresses but none of them had that wow factor. Then I put one dress on (the one I ended up with) and thought oh this one is beautiful and it's sparkling and it put a smile on my face right away. I still wanted to see other ones because I didn't want to miss anything, so we put it on the side. After seeing a few more I tried on my dress again and another woman walked by showing interest in it and pointing at it like she wanted to buy it. At that moment I told my mom to pack it up, this is the one! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests are still complimenting the food from the whole wedding week. We had Moghul Caterers and they did such a fabulous job. We have heard nothing but good things! We didn't want to repeat any items and tried to make sure our guests had food they haven't had before since Moghul is so popular. They worked with us to customize our menu and it worked out awesome.
 
Another thing people loved was the live music we had during the cocktail hour. Philadelphia String Quartet played upbeat music during the cocktail hour, played on the dance floor as people found their seats, and then played violins over our first dance song as we slow danced. It was definitely one of the highlights and everyone loved it!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first dance was really perfect. We had a whole choreographed dance that we practiced but when we got on the dance floor, we ended up forgetting all of it and forgoing the choreography. We just started dancing. We added in a few special touches and spins we remembered from the choreography but the rest of it was just pure happiness and enjoying the moment. 
 
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 did a lot of DIY things for the wedding. For example, we had hotel bags custom made in India, I had popcorn boxes with the hindu ceremony program on the sides of the boxes, I designed the menu cards for the reception, custom cocktail napkins, bar signs, the signs for the food stations at the sangeet, etc. I tried to be creative, while not going completely overboard. Everything ended up coming together beautifully and all of the hard work was definitely worth it. Luckily my wonderful and super helpful family sat there and helped me assemble everything on all of the weekends leading up to the wedding! That family time ended up being the most enjoyable part of the wedding planning process! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I personally put the planning aside one week before my first wedding event. I HIGHLY recommend every bride do this, just so you can thoroughly be present in the moment and truly enjoy your wedding week. I was confident that I had all of the top vendors in the state working at my wedding and I left it to them to see my vision through, and they really did just that and put on the perfect wedding. Every bride needs to just be in the moment and enjoy it because that week flew by and I would do anything to relive it. Things can go wrong and it won't always be perfect, but no one will notice except you! Don't pay mind to the little things and just fully enjoy being with your family, friends, and loved ones because that week is all about YOU and everyone is there to celebrate YOU (and your hubby)!
