Pearl River, NY Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Happy Friday, ladies! The filmy time of the day is here, and we are more than excited to share it with you as it packs tons of beauty, flair, and inspiring ideas that we are sure you will love. This time around, we are revisiting Dupal & Manoj's big wedding bash, which we already featured in this jaw-dropping gallery thanks to the marvelous shots captured by none other than Lightyear Studio. Still, there was so much more to admire that we couldn't help to bring you the cinematographic delight also produced by Lightyear Studio. Throughout the different scenes of this highlighted film, you'll be able to rejoice yourself with all the details of this life-changing event hosted inside the Hilton Pearl River's halls. The exceptional planning and design of this wedding were in charge of Bells N Rings Events, and oh boy, they did not only execute it to perfection but exceeded all expectations and left everyone in a mesmerizing state of amazement! From the magnificent decor crafted by Wedding Design to the ravishing look of our gorgeous Maharani after being pampered by Cinderella Bridez, everything had perfection written all over the place! So we are sure you are going to love this big wedding event that concluded with a fabulous reception party animated by Premier Entertainment. Ladies, If you are like us and can't wait to enjoy this wedding in full, hit the play icon below and get ready to dive into this real-life fairytale! Besides, it is the best way to prepare for the weekend!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I've known Manoj since 10th grade in High School! We immediately became best friends back then and stayed best friends throughout the years. After high school, he went off to college in Pittsburgh and I went to Rutgers. But that didn't stop us from keeping our friendship. After college, we both ended up with jobs in NYC. After many years I realized he was always the one and we ended up together. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He really blew me away with my proposal! I work in the film and tv industry and I always tell him that one day I want to be an actress, hahaha. That inspired him to come up with a very creative, clever, and elaborate proposal. He got in touch with some of the cameramen that have worked with me in the past and had them email me asking me if I would like to be an extra in a film they're making. I, of course, immediately accepted the offer and got super excited at the idea of being an extra! Manoj had already chosen a spot: Grounds for Sculpture, the time and date: 6/30/18, and let all my family and friends know it was happening. In the morning the day of, he picked me up from my house for us to go be filmed as extras in this film.  Once we got to the grounds, we met up with the cameramen and they asked us to do a few poses and scenes. And during one of those scenes, he twirled me around, got down on one knee and popped the question! I was in utter shock and tears and didn't know what to do but of course, I said Yes! It was the perfect proposal and I couldn't have asked for a more creative and unique proposal that was so personal to me. 
 
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.
Soon after we got engaged we started looking for venues. We visited countless number of venues and just didn't fall in love with anything. One weekend we ventured up to north Jersey and came across the Hilton Pearl River and Manoj immediately fell in love with it. It was secluded, classy, looked like a castle, and big enough for our guest count. We loved the staff there and decided that'd be our venue! 
 
After the venue and date were finalized, we started looking for all the vendors. We worked with our planner Meghna, Bells N Rings Events. We loved DJ Insomnia (Premier Events) from another wedding he performed and booked him as soon as we could. Hair & Makeup was fairly straightforward to book. I went with Cinderella Bridez. For years, I had wanted LightYearStudio as my photo/video team and was really glad they were available to do our wedding. We shopped around for various decorators and Wedding Design was the only one that was able to create my dream aisle which is a glass top aisle with floating flowers underneath under a reasonable cost and they blew us away with their creativity and patience. 
 
Our overall experience with all of our vendors was absolutely fantastic. We, of course, had some ups and downs throughout the planning process but we couldn't have asked for a smoother execution from all the vendors and the end result was stunning. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted red and white. When I went to India, that color was hardly in style. It was all the modern colors- reds, pinks, blushes. I was super picky about it, and finally found what I thought I was the "perfect outfit". I constantly kept changing my mind even after I bought it, but soon after it started to grow on me and was happy with the choice. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The food tasting was definitely our favorite part of the planning process. That was the only thing that Manoj really looked forward. We went food tasting and various restaurants in NYC and NJ.  Pradeep from Mantra Restaurant absolutely blew us away. The food was delicious, the presentation was authentic, and the entire experience of working with him was very pleasant. We received a lot of compliments from our guests from the food. Huge thanks to Pradeep and his team! 
 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests brought a ton of hype and energy to the Baraat and our reception dance floor. The dance floor was packed all night and many of our guests didn't even leave the floor to go eat! The DJ did a phenomenal job with the music and kept everyone dancing the whole night. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The walk down that aisle is definitely the one moment I cannot forget. As a girl, you always dream about what you walking down that aisle to your forever person, what song will you walk down to, who will walk you down. It was very emotional for me-the song (Hasi Ban Gaye- which had the perfect lyrics for me), my two mamas walking me, and knowing that I am going to be spending the rest of my life with my best friend forever. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Even before I was a bride, I had always told all the brides-to-be, to enjoy every minute of the planning because when the day comes it will go by in a blink of an eye. So to all the bride-to-be's, take it all in, embrace the ups and downs, because in the end your day will be your special day and it will be magical even if there are hiccups. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I loved being able to be creative and putting things together with all the different aspects that was going on-from- integrating splashes of colors to my jewelry, combining different flowers and colors to make it perfectly match my bridesmaids outfit, coming up with the color combo and designs of my bridal party outfits to my bridal henna with some personal touches about us two.

Snow Hill, MD Indian Fusion Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Good morning, Maharanis! We are beginning a new phenomenal week, and along with it, a new filmy time is here! So get ready to be amazed by all the beauty overflowing from Sonal & Patrick's big wedding festivities. The ceremonies held at the marvelous Kyland Barn and also at the exclusive Castle Farm Inc were out of this world. Yes, this celebration had two beautiful ceremonies that left everyone speechless. You will love how two different cultures and families gather to celebrate the promise of eternal love of their favorite ones. If this love story sounds familiar is because we have previously presented you this magical celebration thanks to the photos captured by Lightyear Studio, which you can relive here. The beauty from Sonal delighted everyone, especially by the mehndi art that Bhavna’s Henna and Arts created for her. We can't conclude this post without mentioning the amazing reception party held at Castle Farm Inc. Everyone enjoyed the phenomenal beats from Luxe Event Entertainment, who turned this gala into a marvelous and memorable party. It was the best way to conclude this celebration. So don't think twice and click the play icon below. I know that you will enjoy this visual masterpiece created by Lightyear Studio. It is mindblowing!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Patrick and I met during our first year of dental school in Boston, MA. We were just casual friends until we went on our first date during our third year. I realized he was the man I was going to marry when we did long distance for a year after dental school - I was doing my residency in North Carolina and he was stationed in Maryland as a dentist in the Army. Going in, we were both nervous about long-distance, but we drove to each other every other weekend and the year was done before we knew it. I know long distance is hard, but this felt like a breeze!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was obsessed with dark green and gold as the overall color scheme for the wedding so I decided to have a dress designed in those colors. A lot of my friends and cousins sent me various dress styles and I fell in love with this dark green, gold, and pink floral lehenga. My cousin in India had her tailor recreate a similar version of the dress in silk (yes, I did pick out the silk in India over video chat). The blouse was hand-embroidered and I was insistent that it has a high neck so I could wear a long necklace with it - I had this vision in my mind and I wasn't quite sure how it would turn out. It took about 4 months once the tailor started making it but once it was done, my cousin refused to let me see it over WhatsApp because she wanted it to be a surprise. My brother brought it back from India just a couple of weeks before the wedding. I saw it and tried it on for the first time one week before my wedding and IT.WAS.PERFECTION.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was making wedding decisions with each other. We worked really well together (for the most part, haha) and I feel like I had a 50-50 partner throughout the whole process, making it much more efficient and stress-free than it could've been. We had less than a year to plan our 3-day celebration and I don't think I could have managed it without Pat's help and support.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests absolutely loved the venues we chose on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The Grah Shanti/Peethi and Mehndi/Sangeet were at Kylan Barn in Delmar, MD. It's a barn-style wedding venue complete with a tractor, a pond, and string lights everywhere. Our Hindu wedding, American wedding, and reception were at Castle Farm in Snow Hill, MD, which is a breathtaking Andalusian equestrian farm turned wedding venue, horses and all. Both locations are very non-traditional for an Indian wedding and that's what made it unique and enchanting. Patrick's guests also really enjoyed experiencing different cultural events and food. And of course, EVERYONE loved the extensive open bar on Friday and Saturday nights.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
In addition to my moments with Patrick, my most memorable moment was being in the limo with my mom, my sister, my brother and the bridesmaids right before the American wedding ceremony started. The amount of love, excitement, and support packed into that vehicle was overwhelming and everything was perfect in that moment... not to mention the part where my mom (who doesn't drink) started popping champagne bottles and filling up everyone's flutes.
 
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 bridal henna was done by Bhavna Naik. She does fusion henna, incorporating the bride and groom's personal stories with traditional henna designs. I sent her the details on how Patrick and I met, our personal interests, our families, etc. and she put together a custom design incorporating my favorite designs. She even did a one hour consultation with me to go over all of this information and sent me sketches along the way to show her progress. I especially loved the Boston and Annapolis skylines which showed where we started and where we ended up. Everyone was in awe at how beautiful and intricate my design was.
 
Both of our venues had their own natural beauty and lots of greenery so Pat and I really wanted that to stand out. We decided to pick decor that wouldn't overshadow this element. Our pre-wedding events were vibrant with colorful drapes, decorated animal figurines, matlas, and floor cushions. Our wedding venue had more simple and elegant decor with ivory, muted gold, and light peach/pink tones to complement the green all around. To go with this theme, I opted for a naked cake with some florals with the same light hues.
 
Since Pat and I love horses and we were getting married at a venue that's all about horses, I figured, what better way to do our vidaai than in a horse carriage? He finally gave in to this whim of mine and it truly was magical.
 
The owner of Castle Farm custom-made the mandap for us because I wanted it to be made of wood. Our florist, Autumn decorated it based on pictures that I shared with her of what I envisioned. When I saw it walking out on my wedding day, it was exactly as elegant and graceful as I had pictured it.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The things I took away from the process are:
-Don't try to do it all yourself. Remember to delegate to people who know how to get the job done.
-Be on the same page as your partner and make sure your vision is the same.
-Take one day every week where you don't work on any wedding-related activities.
-Try to minimize any last-minute changes/additions because it will only add more stress when what you really need to do is relax!
-Make sure a few other people know the entire plan for the weekend, inside and out. You'll be so busy that you won't have time to troubleshoot anything when the big weekend comes.
-Once you're there, just enjoy it and let the small stuff go!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
