Long Island, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Niran Jangogula

Happy Wednesday, beautiful ladies! I hope you are ready for the filmy time of the day. Today we are double-featuring Lohitha Dasari & Mayur's wedding celebration. We have this jaw-dropping gallery created by the talented team from BNB Photography, and we are also pleased to present the visual masterpiece by Niran Jangogula. And I know that you will love them both! To begin this journey, let me tell you that Lohitha Dasari & Mayur, made a perfect combination of venues to host their big wedding celebration! The Garden City Hotel, the Hyatt Regency Long Island, and the Crest Hollow Country Clu witnessed their promise of eternal love, providing the perfect setting for each ceremony and event. Just fantastic. To enhance the beauty of these venues, Stylish Events & House of Dipali created a unique environment with an excellent decoration that left everyone speechless. But who really stole the show was our gorgeous maharani, who look dazzling throughout the entire wedding events thanks to Kanwal Batool, who took care of all her beauty needs. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below! I know you will love it as much as we did! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mayur and I initially dated when we were 15/16! We stayed friends after that for many years and always bumped into each other at random social events. Life happened and we reconnected again after I turned 30 and it was an instant connection. We had the same values and morals and instantly fell back in love again. Our first date was at a vineyard and we knew fate brought us back together for a reason.

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.
Unlike other brides I hated the part of "planning". It was something that gave me a lot of anxiety because I wanted everything to be perfect. I had a vision in my head but had a hard time putting that down on paper. My husband who is a creative genius helped out tremendously in this department and pretty much executed all our ideas to our vendors. As our wedding was going to be on Long Island we had to find venues that could hold the amount of guests we had attending ( 800 +). We went with The Garden city hotel, Hyatt Regency and Crest Hollow country club. My hair and makeup was done by Kanwal Batool and her amazing staff - She has always been a dear friend to me so that was the one thing I was certain about. The Decor and theme we worked with House of Dipali ( Kiriba Floral) and Stylish Events of NY to execute the different visions we had for each event. They were an incredible help. Last but not least our attentive wedding planner Artistic Affairs ( Jharna) was there from the first moment to the last. She really gave us so many unique ideas and helped plan to perfect, we could not have had such beautiful executed events without her and her team!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
All my Indian outfits were custom done by Mom in India. I wore two different sarees for the wedding ceremony and they were custom made on the handloom. My mom actually picked out all the threads and warping and they were weaved by the weavers. Fun fact - I did not try on any of my Indian outfits till the day of each event! I trusted my moms choices and they all came out perfect. My reception outfit was an american white dress covered in swarvoski crystals. My family and I traveled to California to Karoza Bridal to pick it out as I fell in love with their designs on instagram. I initially envisioned myself in a mermaid gown but after spending hours there my mom pulled the perfect princess gown that I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on. Once again I guess its true, Moms know best.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in our wedding was the first dance. My close friend Breanne actually sang our first song and recorded it and sent it to us all the way from Spain. She was unable to make the wedding but its something that my husband and I will cherish forever. We were serenaded with the most beautiful voice as we were dancing ; We truly felt there was no one else in the room as we danced.

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 sangeet night was filled with so much laughter and dancing. We had so many people that performed and took their time out of their life to add something special and memorable that we can remember, we will always hold those dances and songs close to our hearts. I also wanted to do a combination of songs dedicated to my grandmother, Mom & dad and my in laws. It was something I always wanted to do and I am glad I had the opportunity to do that.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't sweat the small things! So many things are going to go wrong and not as you planned but just remember this is the start of the rest of your life with your perfect love and that is what's important.

Wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. It will take your breath away!

Pompton Plains, NJ Indian Wedding by Joseph Minasi Studios

Good morning, Maharanis! We headed to the middle of this fabulous week, and the filmy time of this fantastic day is here! Today we are pleased to present all the beauty that surrounded Kosha & Nigam's wedding celebration. Today we can enjoy a visual masterpiece created by the enormous talent crew from Joseph Minasi Studios, who made sure to capture every emotion and detail of this spectacular gala. The exclusive Crest Hollow Country Club and the Grand Legacy Castle witnessed the promise of eternal love between our lovely duo. Elegant Affair was responsible for beautifying the gala. And let me tell you that they did an outstanding job creating a marvelous environment for each celebration. Everyone enjoyed every detail of the wedding celebration, but what made them sigh and took their breath away was Kosha, our gorgeous Maharani. She trusted her beauty needs to Heena Das Beauty, who created a dreamy makeup and hairstyle for her, endowing her with a royalty look that we loved so much. Just lovely. If you are in the pursuit of inspiration, you are in the right place, as today, your motivation and expectation will increase while you fill your heart with tons of inspiring ideas for your dream wedding event. So don't think twice and click the play icon below! You'll love it.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Nigam and I met on a December evening celebrating our best friend’s birthday 12 years ago. While timing was always an issue, we managed to consistently meet every December. Finally, when our lives aligned I could see he was more than a handsome and charming man, his actions revealed how kind and generous he truly is. We took the time to become best friends and to love one another, now I can honestly say I married by best friend.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The proposal was unforgettable! It was my 30th birthday and Nigam had made me believe we are meeting friends for a brunch in Brooklyn, NY. He suggested the uber driver to pull over at the beginning of the NYC side of the bridge. When I asked why, he mentioned “it’s a beautiful day, lets walk across the bridge.” Of course my first thought was, “you want me to walk across the bridge…in heels?!” Shortly after, staring at the NYC skyline, he proposed. As soon as I looked up, both sets of parents and our close friends greeted us with excitement. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better…Nigam, with the help of our family and friends, surprised me with a huge after party. Nigam and I believe that all monumental moments in life should be celebrated with the people you love, and that’s exactly how this proposal transpired.

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 wanted a wedding so memorable, it would be an event to talk about for years to come. My father had the most creative and innovative ideas, my father in law always put our guests’ wishes first, and our moms always keeping us happy and healthy. With the help of Artistic Affairs, our planning dreams were put into a reality. Our vendors were all incredible, hard working, and exceeded all of our expectations.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I’ve always known I was not going to wear the traditional bridal red. I wanted an outfit that was decadent and fun. I chose to customize my bridal lengha with Anita Dongre; I kept a pink and gold theme and threw in a pop of green to match with the groom’s sherwani.

It was very important for me to represent all the generations of strong beautiful women in my family on my wedding day. Therefore, my jewelry was one of my favorite parts that helped complete my bridal outfit. I wore the same pancha sankla my mother wore at her wedding, and a gold chandan har that was gifted to me by my late grandmother.

As part of my wedding gift, my closest girlfriends and sister in law gifted me my wedding shoes for the week. The most incredible pair of Christian Louboutins and Jimmy Choos. I couldn’t feel my feet by the end of the week…but I sure felt like a princess!!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was definitely the time we spent with our families. The process in general is extremely tough and meticulous. We spent almost every free weekend driving to different parts of NY and NJ, meeting with multiple different vendors. I have to say, it was all worth it when you can see the excitement and joy on our families’ faces. All decisions were made with pride and love knowing that each of them just wanted the best for us. It helped that every trip ended with a delicious meal and a large bottle of wine!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The uniqueness of it all! Our theme was royal and regal; we used a traditional inspiration with a modern twist. Every detail from the venue, to the decor, to the food selection maintained this theme. Most importantly, we made each event about the guests! The bar and buffet never closed, the music never stopped, each event was an endless party.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The entire week felt like I was living in a dream that went by in a blink of an eye! One moment that replayed in my mind was when Nigam and I took a second to ourselves. It was the morning before the wedding where he pulled me aside and said, “take in this moment, everyone we know and love will be in one place to celebrate us, this will truly be the best moment of our lives.” Taking those 5 minutes with your soon to be groom, realizing it is all for us…it’s a magical feeling that you will never forget.

Philadelphia, PA Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Good morning, Maharanis! If a glimpse of what a real Maharani celebration is all about is what you seek, look no further because today's filmy is everything you have dreamed and expected out of an Indian wedding bash. The gala comes to us from PA, and I can't believe the grandiosity and glam displayed throughout it. Our friends from Lightyear Studios truly outdid themselves with this feature. So many colors, ambiances, delicious plates, dances, guests, and memories, captured by their talent. Impressive! The exclusive Hilton Philadelphia at Penns Landing was the venue of choice for Neha and Sunny to tie the knot! The Indian queen of the night, Maharani Neha, wore beautiful outfits and luxurious accessories that praised her innate beauty and made her look like a goddess. The team from Flawless Beauty by Pauline was in charge of dolling up this beauty, and they delivered nothing less than perfection. So talented! Today you are invited to relive all of the details that surrounded this celebration. So don't think twice and press play below for all of the highlights! You will love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

I met Sunny on Dil Mil! I remember seeing his picture and thinking I really hope this one sends me a DM. His profile said he was vegetarian and loved Garba- what more was I looking for? We chatted through texts for a few days and then he asked me out on a date. I was giddy and nervous! We met in Princeton for dinner and drinks. I had an inkling he was the one after our first date. He was honest and charming. We spent every weekend together after that, mostly in Philly and eventually fell in love.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As a teacher, I get a week off in April for Spring Break so we decided to go to Saint Lucia. It was somewhere neither of us have been to and a destination where we could relax by the pool and swim in the ocean. As we did our research, one of the things I really wanted to do was hike the Gros Piton mountain. We decided to do the hike early on, on our trip so we would have time to recover after. I remember trying to read Sunny's face every time we talked about the hike- does he want to do this hike? Am I forcing him? Is this a bad idea? But I didn't let these thoughts stop us from our original plan so we rented a car, drove to the mountain and met our tour guide. You can only do this hike with a tour guide and for them, it's like a walk in the park. Sunny packed a speaker in his backpack which was a good distraction as we made our way up to the top. We would sing along to a song as we hiked and then take a break for a few mins, then sing another song while we hiked and stop again for a few mins. It was strenuous but we eventually made it to the top two hours later. When we got to the top, we took in the moment, snapped a few pictures and then our tour guide said let me take you to a different spot with a better view. Now we were off trail, literally hiking in the mountain and I kept tripping over rocks and branches. I remember thinking this wasn't such a good idea but then as we got closer to this secret lookout point, our tour guide started filming our reaction on his phone. I didn't think much of it because that view was truly breathtaking- it was better than the top of the mountain. Sunny told me to face the ocean so that he could take a picture of me looking out in the distance. While he was getting his phone, he was also fumbling with his speaker. I was irritated, thinking why can't he just put down his speaker and take in this moment with me. As I started turning around, he started yelling, no wait, wait wai...let me take another picture! It was taking too long... so I turned around and there was Sunny, on one knee, with a ring, asking me to marry him while our tour guide captured all of it on video. I obviously said yes- we hugged, we cried a few happy tears, and we kissed. It was a special 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.
After attending so many of our friend's weddings over the years, Sunny and I knew there were a few vendors that were really important to us and needed to book immediately. Sunny wanted DJ Gaurav because he knows how to get a crowd dancing all night and I wanted Pauline Nobles for hair and makeup because her work is truly flawless. We contacted them as soon as we selected a wedding date. Both of us wanted Lightyear Studios to be our photographers and videographers because their work is great quality. It took us some time to find the right decorator but in the end we found someone we loved- Nirali Decor. She was so easy to work with and made our visions come true.  We used Platinum Dream Events as our day of coordinators and they did not miss a beat. Allison Manna at the Hilton was fantastic and helped our wedding day run smoothly.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
After Sunny proposed, I became very serious about my Pinterest boards. I created a board for mehndi designs, Garba decor, mandaps, hair/makeup looks and of course, wedding lenghas. The more I kept searching and pinning, I quickly realized that I was gravitating towards red bridal lenghas with heavy embroidery. Sabyasachi's designs caught my eye. I loved the way he created bold red lenghas with gold embroidery at the bottom of the skirt and floral sequins all over. When I went to India with Sunny and his parents, our first stop hours after we landed was Aso Palav. We spent nearly 6 hours there but I walked out with my wedding lengha. It was a bold red with gold embroidery at the bottom and floral sequins all over. I had my Sabyasachi moment.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part about planning our wedding was food tasting! You really can't go wrong with Moghul. They have so many traditional and unique items. We stuck with traditional Gujarati food for lunch after the wedding ceremony and North Indian/ Punjabi food for dinner during the reception. For our cocktail hour, it was important for us to have some Indo- Chinese items and finger foods that were easy to eat. We chose South Indian items for our Mehndi night and had stations with lots of Mumbai street foods set up at our Garba. It was important to us that we offered different items at all of our events.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests absolutely LOVED the venue. When our family and friends received their save the date card and wedding invites, most of them thought our wedding was in Center City Philadelphia- with tall buildings, crowded streets, and pedestrians everywhere. But once our guests checked in at the Hilton on Penn's Landing, they found it to be a mini-resort with a swimming pool in the hotel, food trucks and hammocks on Spruce Street Harbor Park and a Ferris Wheel at the Blue Cross River Rink! There was something to do for everyone no matter the age and given that both of us have large families, we envisioned the Hilton to be the perfect venue not only for us but for everyone.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
One of the best moments of our wedding was the Baraat. Sunny's baraat started over by the Seaport Museum, right outside the Hilton along the river. DJ Gaurav got the crowd so hyped and excited, everyone was dancing regardless of it being 90+ degrees outside. My bridesmaids and I were dancing in front of the windows that overlooked the waterfront. At one point, DJ Gaurav had everyone look over at the windows where I was waving at them and they were waving back at me. It was a moment where I knew Sunny was having a great time dancing with his family and friends and he knew I was with my girls smiling and laughing as they made their way to the Hilton. We had a drone that was able to capture so many shots from different angles of the baraat and they make us so happy!
 
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.
Sunny and I surprised our family and friends at our Garba night with a dance to Dholida and Chogada. People are still talking about it! We had a lot of fun putting it together.
 
My friends from childhood did a fabulous job at the reception with their dance and my brother really shocked everyone, in a good way, with his dancing skills.
 
Nirali from Nirali decor really killed it with her team. We loved the way she set everything up for us. She was easy to talk to, easy to work with, and made all of our events look and feel special.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't stress on your wedding day. Enjoy it! Remember to smile and laugh :)
Your guests will be able to feel your energy so make sure you stay positive and upbeat!
 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Cake was from Bredenbeck Bakery
Bouquets were from IGO in Edison- they have a little floral shop in there that also do garlands

 

Please visit us tomorrow for a new filmy moment. You will love it!
