Chicago, IL - TX Muslim Wedding by Mir Anwar Studios

I can't think of a better way to start the second week of May than with a fabulous Muslim wedding! The elegance, details, and sophistication of this feature are truly unique. Shaleen & Sabih's style can definitely be seen and experienced throughout the various ceremonies, and we are absolutely adoring the finesse and care put into the creation of such a beautiful event. Today, and thanks to Mir Anwar Studios, we will be having a closer look into what went on in Chicago for all the traditional ceremonies and then in Dallas for the reception, so, be sure, ladies, that this highlight reel is going to be a rollercoaster of emotions. Several of our known friends lent their talent so Shaleen & Sabih's vision could come to life. Wedding Decor By Faiza was in charge of crafting the decoration and bringing the marvelous floral designs for the reception or Valima.  Also, Anmol Catering's culinary wonders delighted everyone for both the Mehndi and Traditional ceremonies, held at the Windy City, and our lovebirds couldn't have chosen a better foodie team. After they tied the knot, the gala indeed moved to Dallas and our Outspoken Visions Entertainment pals, turned it into a real middle eastern party! So romantic! You can't miss our cinematic experience of today, ladies, hit play below and relieve Shaleen & Sabih's gorgeous union one more time.

 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Some background to this story is that I love to read. A few months prior to proposing, I was at Target running errands and ended up in the book section unable to make up my mind as to which book I should buy. Sabih called me just to see what I was up to and I told him my dilemma that there so many books I wanted to read but couldn't pick just one. He asked me the names of the books on my must-read list. I told him and eventually left Target thinking I'd buy the books later. Fast forward to July 2017. I went to Dallas to celebrate Sabih's birthday with him (we were long distance) and he took me to the botanical gardens the day before his birthday. We walk down to a portion of the gardens with a bench on the bench are a stack of the same books that I mentioned I wanted a few months back. Along with those books is another really beautiful book. Sabih asks me to sit down, tells me he's going to read me a story. He opens the book and each page tells a story about my life from my childhood days to when I first met Sabih and our time together. He handwrote each page and drew pictures of the house I grew up in, the masjid I pray at and so much more.  The very last page of the book said "will you marry me" and the ring was placed in the book. There was a photographer nearby who was able to capture every moment. 
 
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.
Excel sheets, a supportive family and friends and my husband were the reason the wedding was everything I imagined it would be and more. I made sure to book venues and makeup and photographers first since those book fast. I knew what colors I wanted my mehndi outfit to be and then led to color and theme for the wedding. I wanted a festive almost Aladdin themed mehndi. I wanted to the Shaadi to be a candlelight dinner. My goal was for each event to be different from the last. I made my vision clear the vendors, had multiple follow up visits to make sure we were all the same page. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My mom, sister and cousins all came to Pakistan with me to help me pick out a lengha. I knew I wanted a deep shade of red. I went to a ton different places but nothing gave me that bridal feeling until I tried the deep red outfit at Farah Talib. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Because Sabih and I were pretty hands-on with the planning, the best part was seeing what we envisioned come to life. My mom was my right hand and I loved that the planning process allowed us to spend more time together. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the food, decor, and dances. My dad was in charge of managing the caterers and assured that everyone was able to enjoy the different cuisines we had (American, Pakistani, Chinese and Mexican food). Both my side and Sabih’s side worked hard to put together a medley of dances that the crowd really enjoyed
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Sabih and I didn’t do a first look so the first time I see him on our wedding day was when I walked down the aisle. I was nervous walking in front of everyone but as soon my eyes met Sabih’s everything felt better. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Live in the moment. It’s the best time of your life so don’t get caught up in little details not going your way. Take in each moment and enjoy it. 
See you tomorrow ladies!

Whippany, NJ Indian Wedding by Inzi Wedding Films

A happy couple with a royal flair! Anita and Rushang are the epitome of a match made in heaven! These two held, what could easily be the wedding of the year, at the splendid Hanover Marriott! Just a few days ago, we delighted ourselves with the stunning imagery by the talented Ron Soliman Photojournalism in our Platinum Guide Blog; and now we can enjoy the gorgeous moving images thanks to the celebrated storytellers of INZI Wedding Films. The décor couture company, Partyland Event Design Boutique, was the fabulous team behind the grand decoration that displayed an extraordinary draped set up for the ceremony and a striking elegant setting for the last event. Our Indian beauty, Anita, showed some major bridal style and called the talented mehndi artist, Mehndikalogie to embellish her with the most beautiful henna paisleys, and also recruited the bridal beauty expert Heena Das Beauty to create her princess-perfect look for both of her major events. Luxe Event Entertainment was present to deliver the best vibrant sounds for some serious post-ceremony excitement and celebrations that you can watch in the highlight reel below! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband's name is Rushang Patel. According to my close friend, (who is a mutual friend of ours) we had met each other many many times over the past 10 years. However, we never really paid close attention to each other. Either I was dating someone at the time or he was dating someone,  or we were just star-crossed lovers. 
 
On October 31, 2015, it was written in the stars for us to meet again, but this time it was meant to turn into a lifetime bond. I was attending my best friends 30th birthday, and Rushang was attending his close friends birthday in New York City. It turned out that my best friend is his close friend's cousin, and they were having a joint birthday party. It was a Halloween party, so I was dressed as a fairy in a tutu with wings. Rushang's personality is very much like the life of the party, and a unique individual. He was wearing a very hideous looking "peace" sign mask that immediately caught my attention, being that it was very random. We both enjoyed the party with our friends, and eventually, he literally swept me off my feet and carried me to the dance floor (randomly of course). Here, Rushang told me I finally was able to get you away from our friends so we can talk to each other. We proceeded to dance and talk the night away until it was time to go. The time went by so fast in my mind, however, we had been slow dancing (during fast music) and talking for almost two hours. He asked me for my phone number because he wanted to keep in touch with me after that night. Knowing that he was friends with my best friend, I trusted him enough to go ahead and take the plunge. 
 
Later, I found out that Rushang was actually there for that one weekend after being away for over a month. I learned that Rushang was going to be away in Quantico for six months of training. We talked over the phone and Skype for a month after we met, before our first date.  Our first date was at a hibachi restaurant in Jersey City, followed by a private night time tour of Ellis Island where we could see a beautiful view of the NYC skyline and Statue of Liberty. 
 
I didn't know he was the one until approximately one and a half month after our first date. At this time, a blizzard had passed, and we were snowed in on a Saturday. Sunday morning, Rushang and I went down to dig our cars out. I realized that I left my second shovel at my parent's house, so there was only one shovel. He sent me back upstairs to my apartment, after my attempts of borrowing a shovel from someone to help Rushang was unsuccessful. I was able to see the parking lot from my apartment, and I periodically checked to see if he was done digging the cars out. Our cars were done in 45 minutes, but he was out there for over an hour and a half. After a while, I went to the window to see what was taking him so long. That's when I saw that he was helping all my neighbors in the parking lot in digging their cars out. He helped at least five other people that day, and that's when I knew that he was the one. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After 7 months of being together, Rushang was stationed in another state for work, which led us to have a long distance relationship. That same year we had reached our one year anniversary of dating on October 31, 2016. He came home for Christmas and New Years in 2016, and I thought he was going back after new years. Well, he decided to surprise me by extending his stay for an extra week. I knew something was fishy because he never does that! We did date nights often, so on Friday, January 6, 2017, we had a date night planned at The Liberty House in Jersey City. One of my friends told me to wear something nice, and my sister in law told me to paint my accent nail rose gold (I have a rose gold obsession). Both also was weird, because I always do my nails, and I always wear a nice dress when we go out. So I had an idea that something was going on. We got to Liberty House, and Rushang said why don't we go outside (in 30-degree weather!). Even though it was bizarre, I just listened and went outside with him. At the Liberty House, you can see the NYC skyline in their outdoor section. That's where he got down on one knee and popped the question, and I said YES! My brother in law was right behind us taking pictures. Afterward, we had our dinner, and all our family and friends were waiting for us at a bar to celebrate our special night with us. My ring is very special to me.  The center diamond has a halo of rose gold with pink diamonds in it, which brings out my personality to perfection and it was exactly what I wanted. Many years ago, I had seen that specific ring on a website and I fell in love with it. I had told my friends that one day when someone decides to marry me, this will be my engagement ring, and now it is!
 
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.
Initially, the whole planning process seemed so overwhelming, but once I got the venue, everything else just fell into place. I chose all my vendors based on their creativity, character, personality, and compassion. I met so many people, and not everyone makes you feel like family. Teresa Gasper was our venue manager at the time, and she truly made me feel like she was giving me her home to get married in. Heena Malhotra Das was my hair and makeup artist, and she listened and understood all the little details I wanted for my looks. She never pushed any ideas on me, and that is what made me feel so comfortable that I could blindly trust her in her artistic abilities. She made it a point to make my looks unique for all four of my events (we had a Garba on Friday and a Sangeet on Saturday before the wedding weekend). I don't have any sisters, and she made me feel like my sister was getting me ready for my wedding. Not only did we have a great relationship with me being her client, we carried on our relationship afterward and are now good friends! 
 
Similarly, Sachi Sood from Partyland Sajawat understood that I had no idea what I wanted as far as a theme, and knew nothing about decor, but I knew that colors were important to me. She spent time getting to know me and my personality, then made my decor look like a reflection of who I am and symbolized my personality. I wanted rose gold somewhere during each event. Subtle, but significant enough to catch your eye. She specially ordered rose gold frames for my wedding, and made special rose gold centerpieces for our estate tables. We both worked together to make our vision come to life, and to give our decor a tasteful and unique look. 
 
Ron and Bless Soliman are the power couple of photography! They are two of the most nicest and humble people I've met. They are so good at what they do and make you feel like you are their family. They always are full of surprises and give such cute presents. I couldn't have gotten through our wedding day without such heartwarming photographers. They made us feel very much at ease and ensured that we had a good time and remembered to keep us smiling. When my dad passed away, we needed a picture of him for his services, and Bless had sent us the PERFECT and most beautiful picture of him in the span of minutes. We are forever grateful to both of them for their compassion and love. 
 
Daniel Inzitari is one of the most creative cinematographers I've had the pleasure to meet. His film school background shines so beautifully in his work. His subtle creativity with using voice-overs, his organization, his camera angles, his fun-loving nature made it so easy to act natural in front of the camera. I could watch our wedding highlight film for hours and never get tired of it. His creativity and choice of instrumental music were perfect for all the scenes in our highlight film. 
 
DJ Gaurav is our longtime friend and such a humble human being. He was so attentive to all our needs and did a great job mixing Punjabi, Hindi, and American music for all our events. He is very good at reading cues and could tell when to transition to ending father daughter and mother son dances based on fatigue and body language. His attention to detail is impeccable, and he is so amazing that Rushang's baraat went on for an hour! People could not stop dancing! 
 
Palav Desai from Padma Graphic Design did our programs, place cards, and table numbers. I spent countless hours editing draft after draft. Her patience and hard work on the details of our wedding made even the smallest items stand out to our guests. 
 
Brijen Patel did an amazing job with my husband's safa and all of our family member's safas. He especially went up to my Dad's room as he was having a hard time walking back and forth due to his illness, which meant so much to me. I couldn't be happier with our amazing team, and would blindly trust each and every one of these vendors for all my future events.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My family is from Delhi, India so I went shopping in Delhi. I bought both my ceremony and reception outfits from Frontier Raas in South Extension II, New Delhi. I always knew that I didn't want an all red lengha. Many years ago, I had seen someone wear a velvet blue lengha with a red dupatta and I fell in love with that idea. I tried on a couple of velvet blue outfits, but I kept going back to the first one. I also tried one full red one on too, but it just wasn't for me. I tried the first one on one more time and looked at my Dad. That look of love and emotion from him is when I said Yes to the dress, a moment I will never ever forget. My reception outfit I designed myself. I love sparkle and glitter and wanted sequin in my lengha, but I wanted something that no one had ever seen before. I tried on things that had sequin, but nothing met my expectations of the kind of sparkle I wanted. I had seen a lengha with a gradient sequin look and showed my inspiration to the designers at Frontier Raas. They realized that I wanted something specific and decided to make my vision come to life. My skirt has small mirrors that were all put on by handwork on the bottom that transitions into gold sequin, and then silver sequin. There is an underskirt of lace under the net which the sequin sits on which gives the skirt the elegant but light look I wanted. The waist of the skirt has scalloped edging. Being that I am a Hindu Punjabi, traditionally we wear Chooda on our wrists when we get married. I wanted a red border on the bottom of the skirt to match the chooda. My pink dupatta was hand embroidered to have red flows to match the chooda, and white flowers to give it a contrast. It also had scalloped edging to match the waist of the skirt. I designed a light sleeveless blouse with light sequin to give the skirt and dupatta more of the spotlight. It took three to four months for Frontier to make my reception lengha, and I was so incredibly happy with their hard work and dedication. We had a lot of WhatsApp chats back and forth which helped me feel comfortable in trusting them to do an amazing job. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The day of the events is when all your hard work pays off. From dances, outfits, to the decor and programs, from place cards to table numbers, from DJ to Photography, and from cinematography to a black light up dance floor. That feeling I got when my vision came to life, was the greatest feeling.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our first dance. I spent months doing the choreography for it, and it came out perfect. One day Rushang and I were listening to the DJ NYK podcast, and the song Soch Na Sake was remixed into it. It was the first time I had heard that song, and that day I knew that it was going to be our song. Not only did it have a romantic part to it, but it also had parts with EDM music that my husband loves. Our performance had a mix of ballroom dancing, freestyle, and a tiny touch of classical. It was the perfect portrayal of our separate personalities, and our personalities together. Our guests also loved our Filmfare magazine wedding programs which I designed myself, and our graphic designer (Palav) brought them to life. Our table numbers and place cards were also a design of mine that she brought to life with glitter paper that matched our black, silver, and rose gold glitter theme. I also received many compliments and texts about all my outfits and where I got them from. Lastly, we gave coasters as party favors at our reception and our guests loved them and utilize them all the time. There were 4 colors and each color had a different quote, our names, and our wedding date. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My Dad's Speech and our Father-Daughter Dance is something that I remember very distinctly. I was so concerned for him, and whether he was going to be able to give the speech and dance with me despite having Stage 4 Gall Bladder Cancer. He pulled through, and he did it all so well. I will never forget his strength, and I am so proud of him for battling something so painful to make it through our wedding gracefully. 
 
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 husband is Gujurati, and we had a Garba on June 15, 2018. I wore a sea green Swati Manish Lengha from Mumbai. The decor was a Morrocan themed decor by Partyland Sajawat. We had a Sangeet on June 16, 2018. The theme was very colorful and Punjabi themed decor. That day I performed a very special dance incorporating my family, and my new family which brought the entire room to tears. That dance is very special to my entire family as it's the last memory we all have together with my Dad. We had a traditional Punjabi Jaggo and Boliyan which was the highlight of our sangeet. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was so much fun! I wore a magenta and light yellow/cream lengha from Frontier Raas.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Wedding Planning seems so overwhelming at first, but everything falls into place the way it's supposed to. I'm so glad I followed my heart by choosing all my vendors. They were all so supportive, and there for me, my husband, and my family during our toughest and happiest time. My biggest and most important advice to brides out there is to follow your heart when choosing your vendors, your outfits, and every single detail during your wedding. Don't settle for anything less than what you dreamed of! 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndikalogie did my mehndi and Dhara was so wonderful! I love elephants and she incorporated elephants in my mehndi on my feet and hands. She was so flexible with timing and positioning when she was completing my mehndi. Her artistic ability is the best I've ever seen and I truly commend her for her attention to detail and creativity. Not only are Dhara's designs beautiful, but her mehndi ingredients are organic and leave a beautiful color on both your hands and feet. Usually, mehndi doesn't come out dark on the dorsal side of my hands, but for the first time, it came out perfect all because of Dhara and her natural mehndi ingredients.  Her assistant who did my family's mehndi was very professional and did a fantastic job.  I enjoyed chatting with her, and we had some good laughs while she was applying my mehndi as well. The Hanover Marriott was the perfect venue. I only wanted hotels out of convenience. When I looked at venues, the things that stuck out to me always were the ballroom carpet, lobby, and overall ambiance. The Hanover Marriott had a modern ambiance, and that's what I loved about it.
 
See you on Friday, Maharanis!

Hit play to the film below for more of this dreamy fusion wedding now!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Chris my freshman year of high school. We became best friends pretty quickly and did almost everything together including deciding to go to college in Boston!  We didn't start dating until our first month of freshman year in college but I knew in high school that he would be the one I would end up with. He was always been my rock and the constant in my life. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The entire day started out a little crazy. I was on the busiest rotation of my 2nd year in residency. Chris had told me several months prior that I had to fly home to NJ for a work event he was having for his company. We had our residency graduation the night before in Cleveland and I was out till late and flying to Newark at 5 am the next morning. Chris called me in the morning to make sure I made the flight but I was actually still in bed an hour before my flight! I sped to the airport, nearly threw my keys at the valet, ran through security, rode a golf cart to my gate, and JUST made the flight (doors closing behind me)! Chris told me later that he was so anxious and nervous that I wouldn't make it home! I spend the morning with my family and went to NYC in the afternoon to see my best friend. Chris had told me the event was in NYC that evening and that he would just meet me there. When it came time for me to leave for the event, my friend said she was going to dinner nearby and would just walk with me. I walked up to a building on 5th Avenue and when I opened the door, there was an iPad that read press play. Confused, I looked at my friend who had the biggest smile on her face and pressed play and there was Chris sitting at our high school where we met telling me how excited he was to spend the rest of our life together. I immediately started to cry. After his video, there were recorded messages of his mom and his three sisters, all who live out of state. As I finished watching their messages, his mom and sisters all came out from around the corner. I was in shock. They took me up the elevator. As I stepped off, I saw my three best friends standing there with another iPad, which contained recorded messages from my friends in high school, college, and medical school, and residency. As I walked a little further, there were my parents, sisters, and grandmother with another iPad with messages from my family from India and my extended family in the US. The last stop, around the corner, was Chris, standing on one knee with rose petals on the ground and the Empire State Building (my favorite building) in the background! I obviously said yes! I couldn't have planned a more perfect proposal myself. Everyone who knows me knows how important my family and friends are to me and how much I miss not having everyone in one place. Chris found a way to do that and bring everyone together on one of the most important days of our lives! 
 
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 first thing we decided on was our wedding venue. We loved the Hyatt Regency in Jersey City and cannot say enough about how wonderful they were. NYC is both of our favorite places and to get married with that in the background was a dream! Since I was in Cleveland, it was harder to book hair/makeup, photographers, decorators from a distance. I ended up doing it all remotely and flying back and forth to meet with vendors. We decided to keep things simple and focus on what people would remember about the weekend. We spend a lot of time picking our DJ/entertainment and caterers. Once we decided to go with Moghul we did multiple food tastings to perfect the menu. People still tell us how much they loved the food at our wedding and how we managed to make it different but still amazing! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
All I knew when I went shopping in India was that I wanted a red bridal lengha. I had looked online a few times and hadn't found one I loved but had an idea of what I wanted. On my second day there, I tried on a red lengha that had actually already been sold to another client! I feel in love with it and they ended up making a custom one for me! 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly, the best part of the whole process was planning with my husband to be. It was so exciting to put every little thing together and try and create an event that we felt was most representative of our story, full of love and laughter! We had a great time doing every little thing, from putting together the signs for the wedding weekend to food tasting - it was a blast! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The love story, the music, the food, and of course the singing by the groom, which had everyone in tears and in awe! We are still getting compliments on the wedding! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
While I loved the entire weekend, I would be lying if I said there was anything that I loved more than Chris singing. He is incredibly shy and hates performing and had never sung in public before! I was so confused when he got up and when he started singing I was just in absolute shock! I've watched the video every day since the wedding and still sometimes cannot believe that it happened! The fact that he sang my three favorite songs including one in Hindi was just absolutely unbelievable. 
 
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.
The sangeet was held at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City with decor by Vishu Decorators, photo/video by Ami Video, and catering by Moghul. We had a skit/dances followed by traditional Gujarati garba/raas! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the entire process because it'll fly by before you know it! It can be very stressful at times, but everything will come together in the end. It's important not to stress over small details and focus on what you and your partner want your special day to look like overall! 
 
We will see you tomorrow, Maharanis!
