Arlington, VA Indian Fusion Wedding by TLIC Media

Who could think that after meeting in OkCupid, things were going to work out? Lucky for our couple, they were able to keep their eyes open and know where love was. After a year and a half together, they decided to tie the knot and what a celebration that was! So romantic! As we will see in today's film thanks to TLIC Media, both of Jithu & Tyler's backgrounds were represented throughout the gala. The striking and colorful Indian traditions that we all love so much, stole the spotlight the moment Maharani Jithu came out rocking that gorgeous orange sherbet saree. Seriously, Raja Tyler's eyes say it all! Kudos to Styles By Swati - Salon SBS for an amazing hair and makeup work as always! We also know that our couples always want the best for their guests. When you have the catering services of our pals from IndAroma, nothing can go wrong! With a full tummy, it was time to tear the dance floor apart and celebrate the milestone.  Also, if you haven't checked the gorgeous gallery we had on our site just yesterday, you can relive it here! So, ladies, come and celebrate with us by hitting play below and get inspired!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on OKCupid and after a few messages decided to meet up. He knew I loved beer and suggested we meet at a local dive bar but had no idea that he suggested one of my favorite beer bars!
 
We saw each other two more times that same week. By the end of the week, we both knew that we weren't interested in seeing other people.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After almost a year and a half together, Tyler made sure to buy the ring on an auspicious day (generously provided by my mother).
 
Tyler picked up my parents from Dulles Airport after they returned from a trip to India, and asked my very sleepy parents for their blessing. My parents agreed and promptly fell asleep.
 
That night, also an auspicious day, Tyler took me to dinner at a fancy French restaurant, where we had a bit too much wine. Eventually, Tyler popped the question while I immediately broke into sobs. After crying through most of his proposal, I said yes!
 
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.
Venue:
As our guests came from all over the country and from around the world (India, Dubai!). We wanted to give them a very DC experience. We chose Top of the Town for both ceremonies because of the sweeping views of Washington DC. We wanted our day to show great views of DC during the day and have a great rooftop area for the cocktail ceremony and reception.
 
Hair & Makeup:
I found my HMU team on Instagram and booked them immediately! They worked with me to create a modern Tamil bridal look for the morning complete with a fishtail braid covered in red roses and baby’s breath instead of the traditional jasmine flowers. The look for the Christian ceremony was delicate with nude lips and eyes and was transformed to bright eyes and bright pink lips for the reception.
 
Design:
We focused on simple overall designs that favored bright colors and atmosphere over more complex scenery. For this reason, we choose a relatively simple mandap (stage) and oonjal (swing) for the Hindu ceremony, and a simple, but classic, greenery backdrop for the Christian ceremony.
 
Flowers:
Our decor team came through with a wonderful selection of flowers. One of our favorite design elements was the way in which our decorator worked the colorful flowers of the Hindu ceremony into the greenery backdrop of the Christian ceremony and reused them for our centerpieces. It provided great continuity between the ceremonies and helped brighten up the Christian ceremony with just the right amount of color.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We wanted to wear traditional attire for the Hindu and Christian ceremonies and wanted outfits that reflected us for the reception. We traveled up and down the entire US eastern seaboard and coordinated with family in India for our three outfits.
 
For the Hindu ceremony, I wanted to wear a traditional red Kanjeepuram silk saree.  With the help of my aunts and grandmother in India, the red saree was purchased from RMKV silks in Chennai over a 5 am WhatsApp call. Additionally, the saree blouse was custom designed and embroidered with Swarovski crystals in a temple bell design.
 
For the Christian ceremony, I chose a white wedding dress from Amazon after searching through traditional bridal stores and unable to make a final decision. I was drawn to a with lots of tulle and delicate lace details.
 
For the reception, I wanted a bright colored lehenga and selected a yellow lehenga with hot pink details from Ladlee in Atlanta, GA. Not to be outdone, Tyler got a custom made navy blue three-piece Jodhpuri suit from Om Fashion Boutique in Edison, NJ. We received so many compliments on our reception outfits and cannot wait to wear them again.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly, being done with wedding planning was the best part!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the baraat and enjoyed kicking off our wedding with dancing! 
 
Additionally, we planned two surprise dance performances: one with the bride and her friends and one of the bride and groom dancing to lungi dance. Our guests went nuts when they heard lungi dance come on and were up on their feet with us!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The best part of our wedding was seeing our family and friends having a great time! My favorite story was about one of my best friends, Tyler's brothers, and one of my uncles roaming the hotel halls after getting back from a bar at 2 am and being gently scolded by my mother to go to their rooms. It was hilarious and also one of my favorite parts about weddings - bringing people together.
 
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.
We imagined our wedding to be warm, traditional but fusion wedding.  Although we are a modern couple, with all the cultural clashes that come with that, it was important to us that both of our families felt comfortable and represented in our wedding.   
 
Our rehearsal dinner followed this theme and was held at the Le Meridien Arlington’s outdoor taco shack, The Yard. We wanted a terrace space that would encourage our families to move around and interact with each other and a taco shack with picnic tables and lots of standing high tops worked perfectly! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
A wedding planner is a must! They are the professionals and have probably seen it all --late vendors, last-minute changes, the ever-changing seating chart! They are a great source of information and great listeners who can guide you through your vision.
 
Sometimes the details and material items can drive you crazy! Before we got into wedding planning, we wrote down three things we wanted our wedding to be: family, fun, and love. When we were stressing about small details like label placement on envelopes or the design of table toppers, we circled back to the three things we wrote down. It helped ground us and reminded us to focus on the important things.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We wanted to incorporate our two families by having heirloom pieces be a part of wedding. I wore my mother's diamond earrings and my late grandmother's gold belt for the Hindu ceremony. For the Christian ceremony, I had with me the groom's late grandmother's handkerchief embroidered with our wedding date. This helped us weave our families into our day and made it that much sweeter.

More weds in no time!

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!
