Chicago, IL Fusion Wedding by Imagination Designers

Happy Thursday, Maharanis! I can't think of a better way to start the day than with this lovely pair celebrating their wedding! Thanks to Imagination Designers, we are able to enjoy the elegance and gorgeousness of this lovebirds' special day, as their lens was able to capture the most amazing and playful moments of this breathtaking and colorful celebration. Every single detail surrounding this wedding was captured on this film, and it definitely reflects how happy these two were. If you want to take a look at the insights of this nuptial celebration, you can visit the fascinating gallery in our Platinum Guide Blog created by WS Photography. The exclusive Chicago Marriott Southwest at Burr Ridge hosted both the ceremony and the reception for this newlyweds and it was the perfect place for this event as it exceeded all expectations. So get ready and take a look at this film, I'm sure that you are going to enjoy! 

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Tyler and I were set up by my childhood best friend, Julie, who was Tyler went to college with. She really went all out trying to get us together. She sent each of us pictures of the other constantly until finally we started talking. She was right because we really hit it off. Our first date was just supposed coffee which turned into an 8 hour "unicorn" date (our friend Dave came up with the term). I knew we had something special when we could spend almost entire day together and were still constantly chatting afterward.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Northern Wisconsin for my birthday weekend. I didn't really think it was anything besides a birthday trip because we typically take one each year.  On our trip Tyler wanted to take me to Bond Falls which is a waterfall in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that he visited a lot as a child. When we got to the bottom of the waterfall and popped the question. It was so private, romantic, and perfect. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since we had a fusion wedding we really wanted to represent both cultures and sides. So for the ceremony I really wanted to go traditional Hindu. I had already decided on a deep red/maroon with gold. We shopped all around Ahmadabad and Baroda until I found the perfect color and detailing.

For the reception gown I decided with a western white gown. Since my mother-in-law and friends weren't with me in India when I got my wedding lengha I really wanted to share the experience with them. I knew I wanted off white and lace, and luckily found something amazing the first day shopping!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The dancing and the food were big hits at our wedding. The entire weekend was a party. For a lot of people, especially Tyler's family this was their first time experiencing an Indian Wedding and they had a blast with all of the traditions. The dance floor at the reception was overflowing and everyone from little kids to aunts and uncles danced the night away. My cousin even performed a roller skating routine on the dance floor. I know the bride is supposed to be the star but everyone saw how much fun Tyler was having and it was contagious. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Tyler and I got some time during cocktail hour to just spend time together. We got to see the reception space before everyone else and just got to soak in the weekend. It was great to steal away some time with just the two of us.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The week of the wedding just try to relax and enjoy the moment. You worked so hard during the planning process and this is really the time to take it in and enjoy. I promise the little things that might not work out exactly right won't even be a concern. It's all about spending time with friends, family, and most of all your love!

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this love story, stay tuned for more. Happy Thursday, Maharanis!

Whippany, NJ Indian Wedding by Studio Nine Photography

We are in the middle of the week, Maharanis, and I have a strong feeling that you are needing your daily dose of glam. Am I correct? I knew it! That's why today, we have a brand new highlight reel coming to us from Whippany, New Jersey. We all know that talent drips from the team of Studio Nine Photography, so it is no surprise that our next cinematic experience, is all things glamorous and lively. Just like Avani & Jay's nuptials! The gala was as grand as you can imagine and that means that when planning and designing a bash like this, things can get a little crazy and hectic. Nothing our friends from Tum Hi Ho Events hadn't handle before! They were also tagged teaming with Elegant Affairs Inc., who created and crafted the bloomy floral designs that can be seen all over the place. These two assisted the couple big time so they could focus on the only thing that was important that day, the celebration of love! Kudos to them for the incredible job! I was also completely stoked with the impersonator of the world's biggest Bollywood superstar, Amitabh Bachchan! Everyone had such a great time and let me tell you, you have to be a true Maharani to come up with an idea like this, so clever! I'm sure you, Maharanis at home, are going to have a blast with this feature. Check it out! 

Every day more Indian weddings to get dazzled by!

Birmingham, MI Indian Wedding by Killer Creations

Killer Creations brings us a stunning compilation of the most exciting and loving moments of Maya and Sunil’s wedding story! This amazing highlight film provides a close up to all the marvelous celebrations designed by the acclaimed event designer Cassie Lewis from Top That Event plus all the emotions of the couple’s declaration of love! The Townsend Hotel opened its door as the joyful groom’s procession approached to the elegant ceremony and provided a splendid hall for the following reception. Maharani Maya got pampered and beautified by the award-winning team of Beauty For You On Location while her off-white saree and dreamy blue lehenga were perfectly draped and tied by her lovely mom and a dear family friend. Sunil matched his bride with his first attire and later donned a sharp tuxedo on the dance floor! Dj Ice and Fresh Productions kept the beat going all night whilst The Townsend made all guests experienced a savoring menu that was beyond excellent!  Click the highlight video below by Killer Creations to see more details of Maya and Sunil’ wedding days!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Sunil and I first met as freshman in undergrad at the University of Michigan (Go Blue!). We had several mutual friends and happened to be getting a ride back together to our respective dorms after a conference- he was the passenger in the trunk of a friend’s car while I was comfortably seated up front. Despite this early meeting, we did not actually get to know each other until several years later while taking similar classes in our Master's program. It was just a few dates before I realized that nobody else would ever be able to make me laugh so hard or smile so much! After a wonderful year together in Detroit, exploring a city working on making a come back, our relationship became a long distance one during medical school. Despite long car rides to see other at the end of some exhausting weeks, it was always worth the trip. There was never one particular moment where I knew he was the one. Instead, it was several years of seeing him put in so much time, effort and energy into making me feel loved, respected and cherished- and I’m assuming this went both ways since we are now married!! 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I spent a month during my last year of medical school doing an international rotation in Sri Lanka and was looking forward to visiting Sunil as soon as I returned home. Little did I know that while I was gone, he had gone to visit my parents, sister, and grandmother to ask for their blessing before proposing. When I got back, I drove out to see him in Cincinnati. He suggested a fantastic brunch spot followed by a drive to a nearby park. He had sneakily arranged for one of his friends to be hiding in the park taking pictures of us. While at a spot in the park that overlooks the city he surprised me entirely by kneeling down and proposing to me. Of course, I was so excited and surprised and yelled out “obviously yes!” We returned to his apartment for champagne and to call our families in Michigan with our great news, and then spent our evening out celebrating with friends. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My outfit for our wedding ceremony was a traditional white Sri Lankan Kandyan sari. I am extremely lucky to have a mother with excellent taste, and family friends with very artistic eyes. My mother and two family friends custom designed my sari based off of a few different ideas and pictures I collected from various Pinterest boards and bridal magazines. I wanted to keep the traditional appearance while adding elements more personalized to my taste or borrowed from western traditions, like turning the sari fold into a train, using a lace pattern/fabric with some sequin details, and adding pearl strands below a diamond cut out for the back of the sari blouse. My grandmother helped complete the whole look with a beautiful set of gold Kandyan jewelry selected with the help of family friends that brought the jewelry from Sri Lanka.   
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
There were so many great things about planning our wedding that it is hard to choose just one. We especially enjoyed our food tastings. Shalimar and Madras Masala provided amazing food (Shalimar) and delicious dosas (Madras Masala) for our sangeet and post-ceremony lunch and we were happy when many of our guests expressed that they loved the diversity of choices on our menus. Our food tasting at the Townsend Hotel was fantastic- their chef did a wonderful job trying to incorporate some flavors from our South Asian palate into a westernized menu with plated options including an 8 oz filet mignon, airline chicken breast, salmon, and creative vegetarian dish composed of dahl, fried chickpeas, and cauliflower. Overall, all of our vendors, and especially Cassie (our planner from Top That Events) worked hard to help the planning process go relatively smoothly!  
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The greatest thing to hear from our guests after our wedding was that they particularly loved the way our two families seemed to mesh so seamlessly into one. We wanted our wedding ceremony to draw from two cultures, Indian and Sri Lankan, combined into one single ceremony, given several similar traditions. Our families learned each other’s traditions and wholeheartedly participated in the ceremony customs from both sides. When it came to the festivities, our parents performed a beautiful dance together at our sangeet. And at the reception, their enthusiasm on the dance floor was only outdone by the bride and groom! We are so grateful that our families have also become great friends throughout the years of our relationship. 

 

Take away some awesome inspiration with our multiple real wedding stories tomorrow!
