Amelia Island, FL Indian Wedding by Regal Palette Studio

Hey there, ladies! We have a brand new wedding film created by Regal Palette Studio that will surely inspire you and give you tons of ideas! Today we are taking you to Florida to be part of Meera & Avinash's wedding festivities at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island. Just ideal! The team from Amina Events truly did an amazing job planning and designing this bash, almost taken out from a fairy tale. Speaking of fairy tales, we can't forget to mention how princess bride Meera, looked during the celebrations, as her sophistication and makeup design done by Glam by Richa  impressed everyone. Such beauty! You will also love the decor crafted by Myar Decor, who decorated this celebration with their ability to create different love environments for each event. Everyone enjoyed the ceremony and reception where delicious food, emotive speeches, fantastic choreographies, and of course, the phenomenal beats from DesiBel Entertainment created many memories that will last forever. Don't think twice and click play below. You will love it. If this is not enough, you can also relive it with the photo gallery we prepared for you. 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
At first, we met briefly through mutual friends when he visited Marquette for our ISA cultural show. And of course I was captured by his handsomeness; but our story actually began 2 years after this, when we crossed paths again during a friend's birthday celebration. For whatever reason, everyone had cleared out for a while and Nash & I were the only two remaining in the room. So naturally, I took this opportunity to get to know him better and it was during this conversation that I recognized my counterpart. Little details, like our birthdays being one day apart, our challenges with having to be the younger sibling in our families of 4, and each of us considering ourselves "chameleons" because of our adaptability throughout life--he was so unique, honest, and refreshing. I had a feeling right away that this guy was going to be way more impactful in my life that I had initially thought.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Nash and I were taking a weekend roadtrip to Michigan on our own, without our dog. Saturday morning Nash had planned a wine tour at this amazing castle in Charlevoix. We were in the gift shop after the tour & the cashier recommended that we stroll by the pond area because we could go & feed birds. As we were walking over to the pond, I saw a man jogging with a dog and remember saying to Nash, "Man! We should have brought ours. We didn't we research the dog policy?"
He was just nervously laughing at this point and once we were close enough, I realized that the dog I had seen was our sweet boy Thor! And he was waiting on a bridge for us, surrounded by flowers, wine, and the cutest little sign. I was sobbing in tears at the disbelief of what was happening. Nash proposed on the bridge, and we got to capture these unbelievable moments with our pup right beside us.
We drove 6 hours back to Chicago right away, and Nash suggested that we stop by to wish our friends happy anniversary before heading home. Turns out it was a surprise party with every single one of my closest friends, even from out of town, along with our parents. The next day, he had planned a surprise brunch with one group of friends, a surprise lunch with another, followed by an evening with the rest of my immediate family members to bring the most surreal weekend to a close. I am still in awe that Nash was able to pull off 5+ surprises for me without me finding out.

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.
I had always dreamed of getting married outdoors near the water. Our two pieces of criteria when venue searching was that it would be along the water, and that having our dog would be able to be in all of our events. Once we visited the Ritz-Carlton resort in Amelia Island, FL it was a no-brainer.
Although we had 5 wedding events, I had a total of 8 outfits throughout the course of our wedding weekend. Every single piece was customized for me in Mumbai, except for what I wore the morning of my Grah Shanti, which was my mom's wedding sari that she had carefully preserved.
@GlamByRicha has been a close family friend of mine for years, so when it came to hair & makeup I knew I didn't want anyone else. She is so gifted at her art and she made me feel so beautiful with every look that she created. Myar Decor provided all of our florals and decor services; I wasn't a bride who had very specific visions in regards to decor but Mital worked with me so diligently, making sure no option went overlooked, and that I was comfortable with what she and her team were producing for us.
When I first met DesiBel Entertainment, our DJ team, at a wedding in Cancun in 2016 I promised myself that I wouldn't get married without them. Their saxophonist, Harshal Dave, is hands-down one of the most unique individuals I have ever met. Lastly, I cannot rave about Akbar Sayed Photography and Regal Palette Studio enough. Their work speaks for themselves and the amount of creativity and care that they put into their work is overwhelming. Nash and I were very blessed to be surrounded by teams of people with so much skill & patience.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Nash and I knew from the beginning that we were not a couple destined to wear the traditional red. One of the things I learned about Nash very early on is that one of his favorite colors is actually pink! Knowing that our wedding ceremony would be held outdoors, we envisioned pink & white as the perfect combination for our special day. At the same time, I wanted the embroidery of my dress to still be traditional and not overwhelmingly heavy, simply because of the fact that I knew I was going to be outdoors all morning. I also wanted the opportunity to re-purpose my wedding outfit and wear it to other functions, rather than have it hanging in my closet for the rest of my life.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
During the 11 months of wedding planning, trying to plan my dream wedding while also respecting my parents wishes was certainly a challenge. However, when I reflect on the process....it was also the most enjoyable component. I got to spend so much time with them, learn so much about their innermost thoughts and visions, strengthen our communication, and really just become so much closer to them--something I didn't think was possible after having been living with them for the majority of my life. Many people would rather have their parents on the sidelines, without any interference or input from them. But I consider myself so lucky to have had the privilege to overcome these barriers together and find a united outcome with them. Having the chance to figure out how to be on the same team before moving out: that was the most enjoyable part of planning for me.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our wedding was nearly 4 months ago; but to this day, we are still hearing from our guests about how phenomenal their Ritz-Carlton experience was throughout our wedding weekend. The most exquisite factor that we continue to hear about was the food! The concoction of dishes, the presentation of each item, and the uniqueness of the menu for each of the 5 events. We are so lucky to have met Chef Jayshri of Ritz-Carlton and have her lead the culinary experience for our wedding guests.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Absolutely. Our vidaai was the most memorable part of the entire weekend for me. Nash and I had decided on a 2-person scooter for our departure after the wedding. We knew this would be met with a lot of surprise as its not very traditional; but what we did not anticipate was how liberating our vidaai would really feel for us. Amelia Island is so unique, as it is surrounded by tunnels of trees as well as water....getting to drive off after the wedding, wrapped up around my new husband, wind in our faces with no one else around us, and being surrounded by this kind of beauty. It was truly the definition of "bliss".

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
If it won't matter 10 years from now, then don't waste time dwelling on it.For a new film that will inspire your soul, come back tomorrow!

We are peparing a new film just for you.

Big Sur, CA Indian Wedding by Balerina Films

Good morning, Maharanis! Today, you will be captivated by all the beauty that surrounded Shilpa & Isaac's wedding ceremony, thanks to the visual masterpiece from Balerina Films! And we are sure you will enjoy it to the fullest. If this event sounds familiar, it is because we previously featured this magical event thanks to the mesmerizing shots captured by M. Hart Photography, which you can relive here. If you are not a fairy tale believer, today, you will change your mindset as this romantic love story seems taken out from one of them. It is a romantic elope that you will never forget! There was so much beauty all over the place, but it was Shilpa's mesmerizing bridal look that bewitched us! Being a makeup artist herself at Makeup by Shilpa, she created her own makeup, and oh boy, we absolutely loved it! She looked flawless! But her ravishing look doesn't end there! Shilpa trusted her hairstyle design to Glamology Beauty Lounge, who created a sleek hair design more than perfect for the occasion. She looked like a vision of beauty! No wonder why Isaac couldn't take his eyes off of her. There is so much romance in this film that we cannot wait for you to take a look at it! So don't wait any longer and hit the play button down below. You will be utterly amazed by so much beauty!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
This handsome man walked across the bar and caught my eye. I leaned over to tell my friend that I had just spotted an attractive man. I never caught him looking over at me so I figured he wasn't interested. As he and his friends were walking out of the bar, he smiled at me, said hi, and asked to sit with us.  We chatted for about 30 minutes and exchanged numbers. Learning that he was 8 years younger, in the military, and that he was about to start his new assignment in Korea, I didn't think it was going to go anywhere. I just thought we would have a few days of fun and he would leave. Well, our first date turned into a week and a half long magical adventure. He was different from anyone I had ever met and we were smitten but we decided a long-distance relationship was not for us. That all changed, after weeks of talking on the phone for hours while we were apart. We quickly fell in love.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Well, it's not as romantic as you would think haha. We were on the phone, planning his trip back to the states and I mentioned how we should drive up the coast to Big Sur. I said something like "Big Sur would be a beautiful place to elope" and he said, "let's do it". This scenario is the perfect picture of us as a couple, spontaneous, free-spirited, and adventurous risk-takers.
 
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.
This was my second wedding and I did not want it anything like my first. Isaac and I wanted it intimate and special. I had 5 weeks to plan the whole thing!- photographer, wedding outfits, location, videographer, flowers, everything! Even though it was an elopement, I still wanted it done elegantly.  Being in the wedding industry myself, it was easy to find photographers that we wanted to work with. Marlies Hartmann is one of the most talented women I have ever met, but what makes her so special is not only her work but that she is kind, generous, and downright fun. She was such a special part of our day. I had never been to Big Sur so I bombarded with questions and she was the one to recommend La Ventana to us. We fell in love with the place! The natural beauty of the Pacific Ocean and Big Sur were all the decor we needed for our wedding. I would have to say the toughest part was finding a florist. There is only one in Big Sur and she is a bit difficult to get in touch with. It ended up working out but it probably stressed me out the most. For our outfits, I took a risk on a designer I found on Etsy. She executed my designs perfectly, and had everything shipped to me within 4 weeks! Our outfits came out better than I could have imagined. D Stone Jewelry provided me with the most stunning bridal jewelry to match. Of course, I did my own makeup but I booked a very talented woman from Glamology Beautylounge to do my hair. There aren't any vendors in Big Sur so I found her in Salinas. We ended up booking our videographer last because we weren't even sure if we wanted one but it was one of the best decisions we made! The video is stunning!! I wanted to create our dream wedding and it was just that. Our best friends married us on a bluff, overlooking the Pacific ocean. It was perfection.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Isaac is not Indian but I knew I wanted my Indian culture incorporated into our clothing. It just had to be fusion. I am Malayalee Christian and typically we wear bridal gowns for our weddings. I wore one the first time but this time I knew I wanted something out of my Bollywood dreams- an outfit that is simple, elegant, but also made me feel sexy so I had to have the high slit and cleavage. I wanted off white to stick to the traditional bridal look. So it was traditional but with a modern twist.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved designing our clothes! Fashion has always been a passion of mine and it was really fun to see my vision come to life
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We didn't have many but that was the best part. They loved the intimacy
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Yes, there was a moment when I just took it all in- the ocean waves crashing, the crisp air, the sight of us overlooking the ocean, my best friend in front of me (someone who had seen me through my best and worst times), my love holding my hand reciting his vows. It was pure magic. I remember thinking wow, I get a second chance at love, but this time I get to do it my way.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My advice is to do it the way you want it. Weddings these days become so much more about everyone else, instead of the couple. To me, a wedding is about celebrating the couple's love and union and it is important to remember and honor that. Also, enjoy the day! Things always go wrong but just flow with it.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on Dil Mil. He was very mysterious on our first date, which kept me very interested. He was really good at planning our dates. My favorite date was one where we went to Barnes and Noble, picked out a Disney puzzle and sat at the mall for a couple hours trying to put it together. He eventually admitted defeat and accepted we wouldn't finish it in the same day, and found another way to ensure we'd meet again. He was always very thoughtful in planning our dates and made such an effort in making sure we would do something fun and different.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Disney World! It was my first time going so my inner child definitely came out. We spent a day at each of the different parks and he proposed at Magic Kingdom, in front of the castle! It truly was the most magical, fairytale moment that every girls dreams of.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I originally thought I wanted a red lengha but tried on this one and loved it. After trying on a handful of other lenghas, I couldn't stop thinking about this one. I knew I wanted a contrast dupatta and everything about this particular lengha just seemed perfect to me.
 
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.
Our siblings and cousins put together amazing performances at both the sangeet and reception. During the reception they put together an entire skit to outline our story. It was 100% spot on and brought huge smiles to our faces!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It ALWAYS comes together in the end! It's so easy to stress about the little things during the planning process but you realize that's not what's important. When it comes to your actual wedding day, you're so overjoyed with all the love from your family, friends, and your soon to be spouse, that you don't even realize the little things you spent so much time stressing over. Enjoy the day and cherish the moments. They go by so fast!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I absolutely loved my mehndi! I had a Mickey Mouse inside the Disney Castle on one arm to signify where we got engaged and a puzzle shaped heart on the other arm to signify our love for doing puzzles together.
Our cake was 3 different flavors - Cookie Monster, Strawberry/Lemonade, and Hazelnut Crunch. Besides the one bite we got when we fed each other, we didn't get to eat it, but we heard from all of our guests that the cake was amazing.
We had a surprise ice cream truck at the end of the reception. It was the perfect treat to end a hot summer day! Our guests loved cooling off from the reception with some ice cream.
We had a live painter that painted a scene from the wedding. She continued painting into cocktail hour and we received our painting a few weeks after our wedding. It's hanging in our living room and we love it.

Don't go anywhere, more to come!
