Schaumburg, Illinois Indian Wedding by Aria Fine Arts Films

A truly special cinematic highlight film captured by Aria Cinema Films! Today's wedding footage celebrates the love of Sonali and Prithvi. Our stunning duo had a wonderful 3-day event of family and love, that included an intimate henna affair, where the artists from Henna Moments festooned the arms and legs of our sweet bride and all the ladies with marvelous designs! The celebration continued at the Stonegate Conference and Banquet Centre and culminated at the Renaissance Convention Center Hotel! Our lovely bride, Sonal was dolled up by no other than Hannah Elisabeth Beauty who ensured our bride-to-be looked gorgeous in her intricate outfits for her ceremony and reception. The décor theme for both of the auspicious events was regal elegance perfectly combined with a touch of luxe charm designed by Shaadi Creations who guaranteed the special events were the most unforgettable. The entire photo album by Jason Brown Photography can be found in our Main Blog while you can delight with the moving images right below!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Prithvi did an amazing job planning the perfect proposal! But... he has never been the best with keeping surprises. He set up a scene for me to relive all of our "firsts"... at the place where we had our first kiss, playing the song we first slow-danced to ("Peeloon" which then became our first-dance song), serving the first drink he bought for me. He knew I wanted it to be just the two of us for the proposal, but he also had both our families and tons of our friends ready to surprise us after he proposed. After all the planning was done, he sent a group text to my siblings with all the details... and accidentally included me in the text thread! Again, not the best with surprises but it didn't make the proposal any less perfect!
 
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I was told that Prithvi had his eye on me long before we finally met at a Harry Potter premiere in January 2011. I bought him a Mountain Dew slushie and I think that's when HE knew I would be his true love (fast forward to the vidaii after our ceremony where he took me, of course, to get the exact same slushie!). Since I heard Prithvi was interested in me, I decided to "play" along by submitting an application to be his assistant for an organization at UMich (a position that didn't really exist...). I conveniently left my phone number on the application for Prithvi to reference six months later when he was visiting Chicago. We met up in June 2011 and immediately clicked- talking for hours each day since then. Prithvi charmed me by his tutoring skills in Physics (which I didn't really need) and showing me card tricks (actually just one decent trick). I kept Prithvi's interest by sending him care packages and making him monthly CDs of songs we enjoyed together. I know it's very cliché but a part of me felt from the very beginning that he was "the one". After SIX years long-distance, living in FIVE different cities, celebrating FOUR graduations, nearly THREE decades waiting for true love, bringing TWO families together...we created our ONE perfect love story!

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.
Honestly, my whole life I thought I would be the craziest bridezilla but when it really came down to it, I picked out only the bare bones (venues, vendors, and of course my groom). My mom, my sister, and my wedding planner made everything else come together! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
When we first got to Delhi, I thought I wanted a blush colored lengha. Something non-conventional. I tried on every lengha I found in this color- from the shops at Mehrauli Road to Defence Colony to Hauz Khas Village to Shahpur Jat. Ultimately I realized I only felt "bridal" in red tones. As soon as I tried on MY bridal lengha at Dolly J Studio, I walked out of the dressing room and my mom was in tears- this was the one. Huge shout out to everyone at Dolly J for making me look and feel like a princess on my wedding day!
 
Other outfits:
Mehndi-- Saaj by Ankita (Shahpur Jat- Delhi, India)
Sangeet-- Dolly J (Defence Colony- Delhi, India)
Wedding-- Dolly J (Defence Colony- Delhi, India)
Reception-- Manish Malhotra (Shops at Qutub, Mehrauli Road- Delhi, India)
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
ALL THE FOOD TASTINGS! Our caterers were absolutely phenomenal and put together their best and most unique dishes for all of our tastings. The best part was having quality time with the whole family during the tastings. We planned these at a time when all of our siblings and both sets of parents could be in town, creating the perfect amount of chaos and critiquing to ultimately design the perfect menu for each event. Not to mention, Prithvi and I were too busy entertaining and taking photos during the wedding week that we didn’t get to eat any of the delicious food when it was actually served- a little piece of advice: enjoy your food at the tastings!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
If they had to pick one thing it would probably be the endless energy! It was a full NINE days of non-stop music and dancing, delicious food and amazing drinks, and of course the best company.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
All the emotional moments during our wedding week were of course very special... our first look, blessings from our grandparents, father-daughter dance, siblings' speeches. However, the one that replays constantly in my mind was our performances at the Sangeet. I have performed at hundreds of celebrations, competitions, and parties throughout my life but I had always danced Bollywood, Kathak, or Bhangra. At our Sangeet, however, I surprised Prithvi with a performance to his favorite romantic Tamil Song. Even though this song was outside my comfort zone, the dance felt so natural and filled with so much emotion because it wasn’t just for me, but also for Prithvi. Prithvi didn’t grow up dancing the way I did and during our six years together, I forced him to listen to Bollywood and Punjabi music, almost exclusively. At our Sangeet, he surprised me by doing a dance with my brothers to one of my favorite Bollywood songs! Definitely the highlight of our wedding week. 
 
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.
All details included in the other responses- let me know if you want specific details about anything I mentioned or didn't yet discuss. Thanks :)
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't stress about the small details, because at the end of the day the only thing that truly matters is you and your groom! My whole life I dreamt about this special day- what the cake would look like, the color of the flowers, the first dance… I focused only on the small details, as most brides do. Yes, all the small details turned out perfectly but I hardly even processed those details in the moment. The things I remember most are the way Prithvi fed me while I had mehndi on my hands… how it felt to perform at my sangeet… the butterflies in my stomach leading up to our first look… Whenever the planning starts to feel hectic or overwhelming or exhausting, just remind each other that your wedding is just ONE day in the rest of your lives. It'll be amazing no matter what because it is the start of your FOREVER.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Just a couple other unique features from our wedding:
 
Our invitations were hand-delivered Doli displays, designed by my mom- with gold embroidery and pink velvet- meant to resemble the Doli that a bride arrives in at the ceremony. It was filled with event details on a scroll and delicious mithai, but doubles as a bangle box to be reused by guests after the wedding. Very unique and practical! (I don’t think we gave you pictures of this but it is absolutely amazing- let me know if you’d like a photo to include)
 
Our cake was 7-tiers and had a train of frosting flowers and real roses that was longer than the train on my wedding lengha! All of our siblings came together for the cake tasting, thus each sibling designed their favorite combination of cake + frosting + fillings to eventually create seven unique cake layers. At the reception, we had a “live” cake cutting meaning each guest could choose which layer they wanted and it would be cut and served fresh in front of them. In addition to seven types of cake, we served a unique array of dessert liquors, a full dessert buffet including more than 20 other crafted desserts, and a “lady table” of desserts- a lady whose dress was a table surrounding her on which she carried the desserts around the reception hall to serve.
 
Our sangeet was uniquely designed with a “mela” theme. We had food canopies with decorative fabrics and string lights to resemble outdoor an outdoor tent at a mela. Each food station housed a different type of “finger food” including kathi rolls, pav bhaji, kabobs, lamb chops, a variety of chaat options, paan, and many many more. There was a bazaar set up to display the party favors which included purses of traditional Indian embroidery, bangles, and bindis. The mehndi stations were created with round bench seating and decorative pillows surrounding handmade trees with branches of bangles, colorful ribbons, and floral garlands. Lastly, there was a photo booth setup complete with a real motorized, decorated rickshaw.
 

That is all for today loves! See you tomorrow!

Chester, NJ Indian Wedding by NST Pictures

I’m beyond words in gratitude to NST Pictures for sharing the charming highlight film of Neha and Anup’s sprightly wedding in New Jersey. This lovely pair pulled together an easy, traditional and joyous celebration of love at the private residence of the groom’s parents. This intimate Maharashtrian ceremony took place under a colorful mandap beautifully festooned with the brightest florals from Little Big Farm who also provided some fresh blooms to adorn the reception tables! The bride enlisted the brilliant Jacqueline Cicala Beauty Bridal Atelier to create her gorgeous hair and makeup combo while the equally talented Mehndikalogie festooned the bride’s hands and took care of the bridal party beauty needs. A beautiful reception immediately followed the union, during this special time the guests were indulged with Sukhadia Caterers’s excellent selection of traditional food and after witnessing the most romantic first dance everyone danced the evening away with Illusion DJs’ high energetic music! Turn on the volume, hit play and enjoy the inspiring highlight film!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
A few years ago, I was talking to my mom on the phone and she told me that she was watching Chopped on the Food Network the night before and the chef who won was very cute. She told me to go to his restaurant in New York and meet him. I thought it was a crazy idea but I did go to Tertulia that week with a friend and asked to meet him. The staff told me that he wasn't there that night so I didn't think anything more of it. I had posted a picture from there on Instagram and tagged them and was shocked when the next day I had a follow from @anupjoshinyc. When he had gone in the next day, they had told him that a cute Indian girl was asking about him and based on the tagged pictures from the night before, they had figured out that it was me. We followed each other for about a year and a half, intermittently liking each other's posts and low key flirting, but never actually meeting. Imagine my surprise when I woke up one morning and Anup had slid into my DM's and asked me to coffee! We had our date two weeks after that as he was out of the country when he asked me out and the rest is history.
 
Our first date was mid-November and he told me as the holiday season approached that if I needed a plus one for any holiday events, he was the guy for the job. He made himself available to me all the time and was interested in putting in the time to genuinely getting to know me. That is when I knew that he was the one.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was Anup's birthday and we had planned to see Groundhog Day on Broadway and then do a late dinner afterward at Villanelle. We were walking to the restaurant from the train and I was busy talking up a storm. As we were about to head into the restaurant, Anup said: "Oh, just one more thing." I turned around to look at him and had to look down as he was down on one knee with the ring in his hand. I could not believe that this was happening on HIS birthday and kept asking him if it was a joke. Of course, I said yes, and we went in to have dinner where one of his friends had cooked us a special engagement dinner. We shared the news with our family and close friends and had a beautiful night.
 
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.
We knew that we did not want a cookie cutter wedding at a huge venue devoid of personality. We wanted something that was true to both of our personalities and sense of fun. Anup's parents live in North Jersey and since we had been together, I had always thought that we would get married on their property. So we did all the planning with that venue in mind. The upside was that we were able to customize everything according to what we wanted but the downside was that we had to manage EVERYTHING. We even had to hire porta potties for our guests.
 
Because the wedding was at the end of May, I wanted our flowers to be bright orange and pinks. Other, than that we didn't really have wedding colors. We found a florist who delivered the flowers to us and we made the centerpieces ourselves. I had also heard of Sukhadia before and it was a no-brainer to hire them as they are located in New Jersey. We had a fantastic tasting with them and all of our guests still tell us how good the food was at our wedding.
 
I found Jacqueline Cicala for hair and makeup online and had an amazing trial session with her. We hired Dhara to do the makeup for the bridal party and another vendor for hair. All the clothes for the bridal party were bought in India. 
 
We couldn't have done any of this without our families, especially my sister. She pretty much took on the role of wedding planners and helped plan and make everything from our beautiful mandap to centerpieces, to hiring extra vendors.
 
We had a rehearsal dinner hosted by Anup's parents two nights before the wedding and a Henna party the day before, also at their home.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I'm Maharashtrian and we usually wear five different saris for the wedding ceremony itself. However, I wasn't planning on doing that so I really wanted a show-stopping sari. I wanted a bright red with full gold embroidery.
 
For the reception, I wanted a lehenga that was a bit modern and not extravagantly expensive. I didn't have a specific color in mind but more how it was going to make me feel. I was able to find both of these in Mumbai when we had gone shopping there in November.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part for me was planning everything with Anup. He really was there for all of it and did his best to make sure that I got everything that I wanted. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests absolutely loved the food that we had. They were also amazed by how beautiful and big Anup's parents' home was. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that replays in my mind is Anup and I talking to all of our guests at each table during the reception. Everyone was so happy to be there for us I was overwhelmed with the show of love and support. I also think about all of the speeches by friends and family, and especially Anup's speech, which was incredibly special and left everyone in tears.
 
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.
If I could use one word to describe our whole wedding weekend, it would be modern. I wanted everything to be bright, fun, and light-hearted. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The most important advice that I would give brides would be not get tangled up in the minor details of the day. We had a few mishaps on our big day--we forgot to put out the wedding favors, we forgot to serve the cake (we had a LOT of other desserts), etc., but none of that really mattered in the end. I had told myself that I would take everything as it came and not stress and ended up having the most amazing day.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I forgot to mention before but we had a photo booth from Miles of Smiles http://milesofsmilesphotobooths.com/
