Laguna Niguel, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Focused Bliss Productions

Patricia and Jay's wedding was one for the books! They initiated their wedding weekend at the Seven Degrees with a night with Raas Garba dance that turned out to be just a glimpse of what would be a vibrant wedding weekend beautifully filmed in its entirety by Focused Bliss Productions. To continue with their festivities, the couple chose the exclusive Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, where they first held a heartwarming Catholic ceremony followed by a dreamy Hindu ceremony where the couple joined their lives with the most stunning view of the Pacific Ocean! I’m really blown away by Patricia’s outfits, she donned two marvelous white gowns and a precious white lehenga and the brilliant beauty expert Dolled up by Lulu created all three hair and makeup looks for the bride! All locations were perfectly transformed by Square Root Designs who created a dream décor for each space, from a marvelous white mandap to unique sophisticated floral centerpieces for the reception. For the party moment, 3D Sounds spun the turntables to make everyone dance after enjoying a great dinner thanks to Natraj Catering and Restaurants. What a marvelous affair! Want to know more?

Plano, Texas Ismaili Wedding by Epique Cinema

To complete the charming imagery of today’s Platinum Guide Blog, Epique Cinema brings us another angle of the fantastic beginning of Farah and Salim’s journey as a married couple through a beautiful highlight film, I’m sure you will love it! The wedding weekend was a dream come true, from a vivacious Mehndi at the bride’s home to a fun Pithi and concluding with a colorful Sangeet, all events were perfectly captured by Vek Photo. In a solemn Nikkah ceremony followed by traditional games the union was official and for this special day, Maharani Farah cleverly wore a lovely Panache by Sharmeen design. To mark the occasion, the couple opted to book the grand Hilton Dallas/Plano Granite Park. The gorgeous venue went under a magical makeover with the creative lightning tricks of DJ Riz Entertainment and the exquisite backdrops and décor of Wedding Decor By Faiza. See from the couple’s first engagement footage to the incredible final celebration in the charming film below!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Surprisingly, I had no idea what I wanted. I went to a designer in Houston who sells wedding outfits, tried on two outfits and immediately knew the second one was the one I wanted to wear for my reception. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Being able to work as a team with my husband to plan out our entire wedding weekend. Everything from the big, overarching items that needed to be done all the way to the small little details - we worked as a team like never before and it brought us closer together. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They all LOVED our food - not only the reception night but the Pithi/Sangeet night, too. We still get guests coming up to us praising the food that we had. My husband and I are huge foodies so that was our #1 item we worked extra hard to ensure was just perfect. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly, I can't choose one special moment from that weekend - each day was so special and unique in its own way. I've watched our wedding highlight video at least a hundred times just to replay that entire weekend. The love, happiness, and support I felt were so strong and the video definitely reflects that.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I'm so thankful we had a little less than a year to plan our wedding. I feel like I'd drive myself, my family and my husband, crazy if we had more time. The planning will never end. But at the end of the day, the wedding will come together and be the most beautiful weekend of your life. 

 

Enjoy endless tips to boost your wedding inspiration in our next film tomorrow!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him when I decided to "third wheel" my best friend and her boyfriend in NYC. In one night, we exchanged a few words and there was so much chemistry. I knew right away that something about this person intrigued me, kept me on my toes, and challenged me. That's when I knew he was the one.

 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He took me to Nice, France after introducing me to his grandparents in England. We went to a beautiful restaurant along the French Riviera, in which then he got on his knees and asked me to be his wife.
 
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 worked closely with each other, our families, and our vendors to make sure our vision comes alive. However, we learned that we cannot be perfectionists. Wedding planning can be tough at times. We just promised each other to not let a small glitch ruin our special time. And because of that attitude, we enjoyed every part of it. We really enjoyed each and every one of our vendor's presence and appreciated everything they brought to the table.        
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to The Mall At Oak Tree Road. My best friend was getting married in India, so I didn't get a chance to go to India twice for the full bridal shopping experience. However, I didn't regret it one bit. Chirag, the owner of the Mall at Oak Tree Road, gave me the pleasure to meet with Falguni from Falguni Shane Peacock. She was luckily in town that weekend. She was so friendly and made all my visions come to life. I knew exactly what I wanted. She knew it and made sure it happened.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Every part of it. I love wedding planning. I would do anything to go back!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My DJ. Every party needs a DJ to get you dancing on (or off) your feet! Dj Jay Dhabi and MC Kaz made sure there was no dull moment.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our reception after party that took place at our reception venue (Giorgio's Baiting Hollow). This was the most stress-free moment. Everything was done. I could finally wear flip flops and just dance like nobody is watching! One of our friends played Punjabi music while we chomped down on sliders, mac n cheese, and fries. It's the simple moments that always remain the most special!
 
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.

Carle Place, NY Indian Wedding by Weddings by Shooting Stars

In their own words, Purvika and Mohit charmingly take us through their sweet love story in a well achieved highlight film and images by Weddings by Shooting Stars previously featured in our Platinum Guide Blog! The impressive sangeet makeup look the glam squad of Styles By Swati - Salon SBS created for Purvika, gave her that blushing bride glow that amazed her charming Raja Mohit on their pre-wedding night and made everyone wondered how the lovely bride would look on her big day! This wonderful self-planned union found its scenario in the elegant Chateau Briand, here, Floral Explosion created a precious royal-looking mandap for the lovebirds to exchange their vows in a dreamy Hindu ceremony. After the completion of the religious blessing, a vivid reception with exquisite traditional food bites were served by Benares Restaurant & Catering and DJ Lishkara helped this cute pair and their guests to find their groove on the dance floor! I guarantee it will not be easy to erase all of these heart-warming memories once you hit play and watch the below film!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
There are moments in life where rationale and complete understanding must take a backseat to passion and whole-heartedly just knowing that what (or who) is in front of you is the rest of your life. At that moment you just need to take it all in, take a deep breath and say to yourself: This is our story.. The story of Us.
 
The first time I set eyes on Mohit's smile, when we met in PA, I knew two things: First, he seems like someone you can trust. Second, there was something about him that is disarming and endearing.  People tend to say things without even meaning. With Mohit it was different, his actions spoke louder than words. He would not necessarily say things, but his actions showed all the time how much he cared and loved. His efforts toward our relationship were 10/10! Mohit and I knew fairly quickly that what we shared was the real thing. Thus began our journey! Him visiting me in NY. Me going to see him in VA.  Every weekend, every day became about us. Together we saw highs and lows, but I knew we had a home. A home that was us. No matter what life puts us through, we always will be there for each other and be safe. Mohit has shown me what true partnership is. He is the man you can always count on to do the right thing in the best way. His loyalty and willingness to do for those he loves knows no boundaries and has no limits. He is the balance of strength and sensitivity. Mohit takes all that life has to offer, yet never takes it for granted.  He makes me happy. Our love is one of communication, laughter, understanding, and adventure. Our story has just begun and we are so ready for our forever! I'm excited to continue this journey called life with you, knowing that I will always always and always have your love and support.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Little did I know our Pre-Wedding shoot would turn into our Engagement shoot! I did not see it coming! Mohit and I planned to do our Pre-wedding shoot in DC. Mohit seemed anxious that day which was totally unlike him. At our last location for the shoot- Lincoln Memorial, Mohit took his phone out and said he needed to tell me something. He read to me what he had written and it would always be precious! He went down on his knee. I never thought I would be smiling and crying at the same time. It was such a beautiful moment! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For the wedding, I wanted some light color and wanted to stay away from the traditional red and pink. But I was open to trying different styles and colors and figure out what looked good on me. I did my research and then tried a lot of lehengas until I wore that one lehenga and had butterflies. In that one outfit, I could picture myself as a bride. And I did not look any further. 
 
For my reception outfit, I did not look much. I saw only one outfit, fell in love, tried it on and that was it!  
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved planning our wedding! It was overwhelming at times, but I loved being able to spend time on things I love. I enjoyed putting things together and making sure every element would work in harmony at the wedding. DIY projects were the most enjoyable part of the process! Seeing how everything turned out at our wedding made all the planning worth it! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved that our all events were different. We had different kinds of food- formal dinner at the wedding to street food style for Sangeet night. Everyone also loved that we had photobooth on one of the events, selfie station for the other and cameras on the table for another. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I could not believe how magical the wedding day was! As I walked down the aisle and saw Mohit waiting for me at the Mandap, it all came together and I was blown away by how amazing everything looked. I cannot stop thinking about it. 
 
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?
"Don't let your relationship dissolve into a battle over tablecloth colors or tuxedo styles. Keep things in perspective." I read this quote while planning my wedding and I think it helped me remember to prioritize. I put things that mattered a lot to me vs things I would not mind letting go/would not lose my sleep over. Wedding planning can be overwhelming, but make sure you guys get time for yourself and continue to work on your marriage than just the wedding. Hope this helps the Brides-To-Be.
