We know about the obvious visual talent from Mir Anwar Studios, so be sure that today's highlight reel has everything you want out of a grand Indian wedding experience!

Hit play and join Monica & Ricky's path to the aisle, only here, in Maharani Weddings

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He added me to Facebook actually. He sent me the sweetest little message and we never stopped talking after that. We have a lot of mutual friends, and he's friends with my cousins, so we weren't complete strangers, we just had never met before! I knew he was the one when he gave me a James Avery ring that said: "God be with us together and apart" (he's from Houston, I'm from Oklahoma City). 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We have a beautiful video documenting the moment, but here's the story. We were in Austin, TX and it was on a Saturday morning that we got up and went to brunch. After brunch was over, we were walking back to our car and he took my phone and stopped me at a car with a driver waiting outside. He kissed me goodbye and the driver drove me off and handed me a letter. Letter 1 told me that I was going to get a Mani/Pedi. Once I got there and got everything done, the receptionist hands me letter 2, which told me where to meet the driver. Once I got in the car, he hands me letter 3, which tells me I'll be dropped off at a hotel and which room I'd be in. I walk into the room and there were candles and rose petals everywhere. On the bed was a complete outfit, and everything I needed to get ready, including my favorite dessert- also, letter 4. Letter 4 told me what time to be ready and where I'd be going. I'm driven to a beautiful mansion on a cliff overlooking Lake Travis and when I step out of the car, I hear violins playing our song, and I start walking towards the balcony, and my future husband was standing there waiting for me. It doesn't just end there. After he proposed, our parents and siblings came outside to greet us! We then headed to have dinner with them and when we got there, all of my cousins and our friends were there waiting there ready to celebrate. IT WAS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE. 
 
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 had documents of pictures and descriptions for everything. My husband and I are both very organized people, so we made the best team when it came down to planning our wedding. We researched every vendor before deciding on them and we don't regret it. We loved every single person we worked with. They were all so amazing. It was a lot of hard work, but in the end, it was worth it. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My wedding dress was the very first one I tried on! I tried on quite a few afterward, just to say that I did, but I knew the first dress was the one!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Food/cake/drink tasting! Hands down the best part. It was delicious, stress-free and a great way to take a break from all the other craziness. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our reception and after-party. Everyone was just ready to celebrate and have fun and you could feel that in the room. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that constantly replays in my mind was right after the ceremony, our coordinators rushed us into a private room so that we could have 10 min alone together to let everything sink in before we were in a sea of people again. I appreciated that so so much. It was such a necessary and beautiful moment that I got to share with just my husband. 
 
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 really cared about how much fun our guests were going to have, so everything was geared to making our day run smoothly so that everyone would be able to enjoy the day. We had a huge party bus for our bridal party, but we also included their significant others on that bus so that we could all enjoy those moments together. We had a few hotel rooms for our other friends to hang out in before the reception. The groomsmen had an amazing entrance to our reception that everyone definitely enjoyed. We played an interactive game at the reception and since Ricky went to UT and I went to OU, there was this big rivalry going throughout the evening, which was pretty fun.  We also had an after-party in one of the conference rooms across from the reception hall where about 150 of our friends/family continued to celebrate, which was so much fun. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Google docs are your best friends. Organize everything you can think of in each tab. It'll make it easier for you, your fiance and your vendors to visualize and keep track of.

Playa del Carmen, MX Indian Wedding by Sarani Weddings

Are you ready to experience first hand what a real destination wedding is all about? Of course you are! Today and thanks to best Travel Concierge Ateet Ahuja from Indian Destination Weddings and Sarani Weddings, we have the gorgeous highlight reel of everything that went on for Gopi & Ronak's gala coming from Playa del Carmen. The two lovebirds truly went the extra mile with their celebration. What more can you ask for when you tie the knot by the roaring ocean? So romantic! And speaking of romanticism, the exclusive and always beaming Hard Rock Riviera Maya was the place chosen by the couple to house the galas. Going from the fun Sangeet all the way to the lavish reception, believe us, it was outstanding! To keep the party up and running, Dhoom Events Indian Wedding DJ. Bashes just go to another dimension with those playlist selections, so be sure this one had all the things we love about Indian weddings. Hit play below and relieve with us one more time Gopi & Ronak's incredible day of magic from paradise! See you at the sea!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ronak and I met my freshman year of college at a dance competition we hosted at UT Austin. We randomly kept in touch as friends for several years after that, and met up again in Chicago when I went to visit some friends in 2014. We talked nonstop after that and officially started dating a few months later. We did long distance for about 2.5 years before we both moved to Philadelphia to finally be closer to each other!

I'm not sure if there was an exact moment in time that I knew Ronak was "the one", but I knew pretty early on that he was someone I could see myself spending the rest of my life with. 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ronak proposed on FridayOctober 5th, 2018 at a gazebo behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I arrived thinking I was just attending a 'Yelp Elite' wine tasting event with my soon-to-be sister-in-law and another friend. When we arrived at the top of the hill and started walking towards the gazebo I saw Ronak standing in the middle of it, suited up and looking as handsome as ever.  I immediately started to cry (lol) and he held out his hand and asked me to dance (he had 'Thinking Out Loud' playing on his phone in his pocket haha). He said a bunch of sweet things that I can honestly hardly remember but before I knew it, he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! Then both of our families came and surprised me, and we all went to dinner together. Just when I thought the night couldn't get any better, Ronak pulled off one final surprise by throwing a huge party with all our closest friends at the rooftop of his apartment building. It was truly one of the most perfect days! 

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 started off venue shopping in Texas last year (where I'm from and where my parents live), thinking that's where we'd be hosting the wedding. After spending an entire weekend looking at venues and hotels that all looked the same, I came back to Philly and complained to Ronak that I didn't find one I loved. He threw out the idea of doing a destination wedding, and I laughed and said our parents would probably never agree to that. Long story short, they agreed and we decided on a destination wedding in Mexico, and it was honestly one of the best decisions we made!

Besides working with Ateet Ahuja from Indian Destination Weddings to help our guests get booked, I decided to do all the planning myself. I'll admit it was very hard at times since the majority, if not all, of the planning was done via email since we weren't able to go meet our vendors in person. But honestly all the vendors there are great to work with, and so understanding of what we need for an Indian wedding. Here's who we worked with for everything:

Travel Concierge: Ateet Ahuja - Indian Destination Weddings
Venue: Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Decor: Latin Asia
Florist: Tulipania
Food: Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Hair/MUA: Alex Corbanezi Beauty & Co.
Photo/video: Sarani Weddings
DJ: Dhoom Events - DJ Milin Jani

Producciones Arteum - salsa lesson for our Welcome Fiesta and live saxophonist for the cocktail hour
Drums in Paradise - dhol player and vintage car for the baraat
Pyrotech - cold fireworks for the reception
Quiroo photobooth - photobooth at the cocktail hour and reception


How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I didn't really have a clear cut vision of what I wanted, but I'm so glad I took the time to try on a variety of styles because I really didn't like some of the styles that I thought I'd love. I went home to Houston one weekend to get some shopping done, and after looking up and down every store on Hilcroft and not finding anything, we decided to check out Panache by Sharmeen, as I'd heard great things about her and her selection. We originally went to look for reception outfits there, but my sister came across this beautiful red lehenga. She made me try it on and we all fell in love with it! Sharmeen worked with me on making a custom blouse for it since I knew I wanted to have emerald green, and we also custom made the dupatta's I wore. I love how it all turned out and Sharmeen was great to work with!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Probably selecting the decor details and then seeing it all come together towards the end! And of course having the weekend go as smoothly and flawlessly as possible, and hearing our guests tell us how much they enjoyed everything was just the cherry on top 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
From what we've heard, everyone really loved and appreciated the uniqueness of the destination wedding. I know they're getting increasingly popular these days but the majority of our guests had never attended one, and everyone just loved how our wedding also served as a mini-vacation for them!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It truly went by in the blink of an eye, but seeing Ronak on our wedding morning for our first look photos is a moment I'll never forget. 

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.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process! Wedding planning isn't always the most fun, but it pays off and will truly be the most memorable time in your life! Also, try on different styles of outfits before committing to one! Everything always looks better on Pinterest, but you may not always love how it looks on yourself.

Columbus, OH Indian Wedding by Photosaga

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis! The week is just starting and we never stop! Today we have yet another accurate representation of what Indian weddings are all about! Vinaya & Karthik decided to the knot with all the style in the world, but also, paying homage to the traditions they hold so dearly. The Bridgewater Banquet and Conference Center was the venue of choice for both ceremony and reception and we know what you are thinking! A fantastic choice, to say the least! What was also fantastic was Maharani Vinaya's fashion sense and multitasking abilities. Seriously, it is not that often that we have a bride that handles her own hair and makeup and all the decor choices! This gorgeous lady is truly a Maharani for the books! The newlyweds also wanted the best of the best for their guests. In order to do that, they recruited the fine talent of DJ Mavi Productions who brought a playlist with all the latest Bollywood hits and modern tunes! So, ladies, you can't miss this love-fueled jubilee coming to us thanks to Photosaga! Let's get to it!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through our mutual friend while doing rotations in our third year of medical school. The attraction was there from the very start when first met at the dinner at our friend's place. He always says how he couldn't make eye contact with me because I was too pretty... We got to know each other in the hospital though, talking in the hallways, eating lunch together. Then we slowly realized we were seeing each other without our other friends. The attraction is basic and not difficult to find. My comfort, and a feeling of home, away from home, that feeling is hard to find and that's what we found in each other.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We did a traditional proposal at our engagement event in front of our closest family and friends in Canada with a traditional Hindu pooja.

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 both worked tight schedules and it so happened that we both were only "free" in March, so as much as I never dreamt of a winter wedding, a winter wedding is what we had with a huge storm two days prior to our big day. We picked Columbus Ohio (my husband's home town) as the wedding location since we got to have the engagement in my home town, in Canada. The venue choice was mainly based on the fact that they let us cater food from outside, as most venues within the area restricted bringing outside catered food into the venue. I decided to suit the season of winter, I would light pastels for a brighter warmer feel for our ceremony with creams and peaches and then for the night reception I choose a bold dark maroon and cream for a romantic feeling.  Hair and makeup I did myself as I dislike the feeling of wearing pounds of makeup and feeling un-like myself. I stayed true to myself and worse makeup to accentuate my existing features and kept the looks simple and wispy.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted to keep my outfits very traditional with minor changes in the cuts. For my first saree, I wore a beautiful traditional red with gold detailing saree. And as I'm Malayalee and we normally wear cream silk sarees for the ceremony, for my second wedding outfit in which the mangalsutra was tied, I wore a traditional cream silk saree with the traditional Indian red trim and blouse. My husband wore the traditional dhoti. And for the reception, he wore a dark navy suit while I wore a dark cream/gold lengha with a pink shaal.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning was actually very hard to do seeing as my husband and I work almost 80 hours each, however, having our parents very involved and helping with the planning made it more enjoyable.

 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved how traditional the ceremony was. Although it was long, the traditions performed were appreciated by most as most weddings these days no longer include such details.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I walking down the stage during the wedding ceremony; my husband's face was covered and I wasn't able to see him as a sheet was held before him and I had all my best girlfriends and my sister walk in front of me. It was an emotional time to finally live the moment we waited for 4 years.
 
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 had my haldi celebration at the Airbnb my family and I stayed at. We kept that simple with some decorations from a department store and some prayer items from my mom's prayer room from our home. The sangeet/mehndi night we again kept simple and rented out a room in a nearby Indian restaurant.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Not everything will go right on your wedding day, but that doesn't matter because at the end of the day you get to be married to your (hopefully) best friend.

Amazing wasn't it?
