How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I first met my groom at summer camp (fondly known as "nerd camp") in Saratoga Springs, NY at the tender age of 13. Who knew that three weeks would change our lives forever?! It was on the grassy quads of Skidmore College that Corby first educated me on the intricacies of a forehand frisbee throw.

Six years passed, and I ran into Corby on the streets of London while studying abroad in our junior year of college. We visited museums together, held our pinkies up while sipping high tea at a swanky spot in Hyde Park, and a night at Picadilly Institute sent the romantic sparks flying when Corby spent over an hour helping me find my lost leather jacket.

A few weeks later, we both returned to New York separately and ran into each other randomly again at a Barbecue Festival in Madison Square Park. We continued our fling long distance from DC to New York for 2 years, and then finally decided to move across the country together to Santa Barbara, CA to work at a start up together. We've loved our California adventures of hiking, camping, and sailing the Pacific seas. Since then, we have sailed to the Channel Islands, climbed Half Dome in Yosemite, and hiked the tallest mountain in the contiguous US, Mount Whitney!

Fifteen years after we first met, and seven years after we started dating, we came back to our beloved East Coast to tie the knot!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Corby's original proposal idea on the top of dramatic Half Dome in Yosemite had a bit of a hiccup when I pieced the plan together from an unfortunate texting mishap. Instead, Corby surprised me in the middle of a private horseback ride through an estate in the scenic Santa Ynez wine country. Never one to be deterred from a good proposal though, Corby followed through with a second one the next month on Half Dome as originally planned.

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 planned the whole multi cultural and interfaith wedding event myself, with the help of my groom.  Planning essentially two weddings across the country was no easy task- I had elaborate excel spreadsheets to keep me organized along with documents organizing all of the costs for all vendors, etc.  I started with a budget calculator, and figured out what I could afford for each category of my wedding and also got aligned about what we would be willing to stretch our budgets for with my husband; live music was my priority, and my husband wanted a venue on the water as he is a sailor and we love living by the ocean. We then used a combination of online resources (Maharani Weddings, The Knot), to e-mail vendors and keep tabs of who would fit our needs and our pricing.  The decor theme was sailing and nautical as my husband and I both love to sail (we had anchor bottle openers and anchor table numbers and driftwood to add the nautical touch), with an Indian twist (Red and gold as colors for the ceremony and royal blue and ivory for the reception to go with nautical theme). 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Selected the bridal lehenga in Calcutta with the help of my parents and my aunt; we had limited time, and I chose to go traditional for the ceremony with crimson and gold, and change for the reception into a royal blue and gold which seemed regal. I also chose a white wedding dress for the Christian Ceremony in a boutique shop in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of wedding planning was practicing our first dance together, which was a blast! It was to Zoobi Doobi from the Hindi Movie 3 Idiots. All of the aunties loved that Corby fully embraced Indian culture and bollywood dance- all of our friends even joined in at the end with yellow umbrellas to add a dramatic touch to it! 
This was the first dance (professional video is not out yet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ST16BxnSNI
This was our excitable wedding entrance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arFmHHDXkHY


What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our first dance! It was entertaining, well choreographed and so much fun! Got the dance floor HYPED UP! 
They also loved seeing both the Hindu and Christian cultures side by side in ceremonies that were back to back. There were a lot of similarities between the ceremonies and we had translations for the Hindu ceremony so everyone could understand what was going on.  The juxtaposition of both religions and cultures was striking. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance! We practiced for months and it all came together, full Bollywood style. My brothers carried me in on a palki to meet my husband and as I covered my eyes with the Betal leaves (bengali style), it was fun to play coy with him. He is much taller than me and I had to jump to place the garland on him the first time!

 

Have a wonderful week loves!

Philadelphia, PA Indian Wedding by Aria Cinema Films

It is Thursday, ladies, and the heat of the summer is already here! So grab those sunglasses, put the suntan lotion on and join us for our featured film of the day. This time, we have a fun fact about lenghas, for us to have a glimpse of why they are one of the most beautiful features of a bridal trousseau. It is believed that they come from the Mughal Era. During those times, women would wear the specially crafted lenghas only for special events and it was believed that they defined Indian exquisiteness and beauty in its purest form. That, of course, is something that continues to this day and it is a strong feature of the color and glam that surrounds the Indian tradition. Today, Aria Cinema Films brings for us the highlight reel of Alli & Shivan's nuptials, and as we will see, the lengha and color chosen by our dazzling Maharani Alli is the perfect representation of that same but modern glam we love so much. So, extra kudos to our couple's attires, and the lovely hair and makeup by Bella AngelPhiladelphia Marriott Downtown greeted and housed the ceremony and Please Touch Museum housed the reception and as we can expect, it was full of choreographies, laughter, delicious food and of course, love. The couple needed the pros for the planning and design and the team from Elegant Events Planning & Design were the chosen ones for the task. The final result... well, let's just say it was enchanting, to say the least. A loving shout out to our friends from Studio Nine Photography who took the incredible pictures we will enjoy soon. For now, let us step one more time into the magical world of Indian weddings via the moving images and get dazzled by the cinematic experience ahead of us. Let's go!  

More to come, ladies, stick around!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Jay and I had planned a trip to Bermuda for a short vacation. I had planned most of the details of the trip but little did I know Jay was planning his own surprise. We had gotten ready early for a nice dinner one evening and Jay suggested we go down to the beach to take pictures. As we headed down to the beach at sunset, I turned the corner and found the most romantic dinner set up with roses and candles all right next to the ocean.
I was completely surprised and just remember that feeling of being the happiest I’ve ever been with the man of my dreams! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We made a family trip to India and I had always pictured a deep pink, almost rosy lehnga color. I was able to find just that! I loved the different colors my lehenga had- orange, yellow-green details
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone was most impressed with the decor and the food! I think we had made some great choices for the food with a lot of variety! The desserts made by the Ritz were also amazing!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first time I walked in and saw the ceremony mandap setup- it was so beautiful and perfectly put together. My vision that had been building for the past year of bringing a garden indoors was finally real! And I loved the cute elephants at the entrance 
 
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.
I loved the decor for all my events- tried to keep the garden them throughout!
My haldi was at our house outside on the deck with a beautiful backdrop of green trees and a yellow open mini mandap covered in marigolds and fresh jasmine
My mehndi has a backdrop of a green wall with orchids fun henna decor! We had a bangle and bindi bazaar favor table for the guests
The Sangeet had a Moroccan then with 7 different food stations and lots of fun prints and color!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We had unique beautiful wedding favors- henna design macaroons that were delicious! It was definitely something fun and perfect for an Indian wedding!

 

See you tomorrow loves!
