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!

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!

Willowbrook, IL Pakistani Wedding by Maha Studios

Dear Maharanis I’m seriously blown away with today’s dreamy couple, Summaiyah and Raheel, who tied the knot last summer in a fun, romantic and colorful Pakistani wedding in Chicago! Maha Studios photographed and filmed the heart-warming affair that first gathered all the attendees at the amazing Ashton Place for a vibrant pre-wedding night. The following Nikkah ceremony, at this same spot, was all about the couple and it displayed an elegant minimalist design with gentle and soft colors created by Afrin Designs. They continued the celebrations at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago for a wonderful Walima celebration that was beautifully set up with a scintillating theme also by the creative Afrin Designs! Our bride really shined through her wedding events with a series of intense and gorgeous bridal looks while Raheel also donned a collection of kingly outfits! The highly sought-after Anmol Catering delighted the guests with its fantastic culinary skills that was with no doubt the cherry on top of this extraordinary night! I hope you love this highlight film as much as I do!  

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've dreamt about having my makeup to be done by Mehwish Khalid since I was in high school! The simplicity of her makeup and how she made every bride still look natural was something I really hoped to be a part of one day and my dreams came true! She is the sweetest and most down to earth person I've met throughout my wedding planning. Another person that I absolutely loved working with was Afrin Designs. She brought all the ideas that my family and I had in mind to life. The minimalist designs and soft colors she uses is something that I've been looking for and she perfectly executed every single detail which all the guests loved, especially the mehndi event decor! Afrin was so easy going and amazing to work with, I'll definitely be going back to her for any future events and have already recommended future brides to choose her! When it comes to photography, something I'm very passionate about, I wanted to make sure I went with the right photography team which I absolutely did - Maha Studios. Zainab and her team were so patient and fun to work with and made my husband and I look amazing in the photos and videos. They told us step by step what to do which made it less stressful and made everything feel so natural. Lastly, working with the owner and his partner of Ashton Place, Dr. Syed Quadri and Punit Uncle were so helpful! They made sure that everything would be exactly the way we wanted things to be presented while Dr. Quadri was planning his own daughter's wedding! They took all our stress and worries away in a heartbeat and made us feel at ease. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect team of vendors! 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process for me was definitely the little details from making all the bangle pillows for the bangles station for the mehndi event, to packing all the goodie bags for the wedding day. Just sitting down with your family doing wedding preparations and listening to wedding songs is always such a memorable moment especially when it's your own wedding!  
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests were absolutely in love with the decor of the day of the mehndi! Everyone loved the colors, the bangles station, and the food stations. Afrin and her team did a phenomenal job on really making it feel like a mehndi event, including the cute lanterns on the tables! The food at the mehndi was chosen through Ashton Place and there were different ethnic foods that night - everyone really enjoyed themselves and thought the menu was really good. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Two really special moments from the day of the wedding would be during and after the Nikkah ceremony. I was in another room during the ceremony so I wasn't able to see in person however it was captured on video - the moment my husband said "I accept Summaiyah Jabeen as my wife" - he had the biggest smile on his face which I thought was such a sweet moment. After the ceremony, it was time for me to walk down the aisle in front of hundreds of people. I was very nervous but the moment I saw my husband waiting for me on stage, my nervousness went away and everything just felt perfect.
 
Happy Tuesday!
