Long Beach, CA Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Good morning, beautiful ladies! We were dying to get back to you as we have a film that will surely take your breath away. Today, we'll be taking a look at all the beauty surrounding Divya & Nehal's big wedding celebration. If the name of these lovebirds sounds familiar to you, it is because we already featured their wedding bash with a gorgeous gallery that you can check here. However, there was so much finery to admire that we decided to relive this grand event. This time, Peter Nguyen Studio is ready to take your breath away with a cinematographic delight showcasing the highlights of the celebration that united Divya & Nehal un marriage. And believe us, this grand event celebrated inside the halls of the Hotel Maya - a DoubleTree by Hilton is an absolute visual delight, and a dream come true. And talking about dreams that come true, take a moment to admire the ravishing look of our gorgeous Maharani Divya. She was stunning throughout the entire celebration, thanks to Angievacamakeup, who took care of all her beauty needs in such a spectacular way that we cannot stress how much we loved it. If you are like us and can't wait to jump into this rollercoaster of emotions, hit the play icon below and get ready to be amazed by this unforgettable celebration!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Nehal through mutual friends at UCLA. I was a wide-eyed freshman and he was a too-cool-for school junior who loved to clown on me. I was always attracted to him, but I never thought we would end up together because we were just friends. It wasn't until the end of my sophomore year when his texts became more frequent and our chats lasted until 2 AM, when I realized that something was brewing between us. As soon as we started dating I knew that he was the one for me, because I just couldn't see myself marrying someone other than him. Nehal and I connected so well, he treated me and my family so well, and he made me laugh and smile almost every second of the day.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was convinced through fake emails that one of Nehal's friends was getting engaged in San Diego, and that we would attend to surprise the bride to be. When we arrived at the Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, I was surprised to find that Nehal and I were the "first to arrive" before the couple and the other guests. However, the photographer then arrived and asked Nehal and I if she could take "test shots" of us on the cliffs to prepare for the real couple's proposal. As Nehal and I positioned ourselves gazing toward the ocean, Nehal started to get on one knee and proceeded to tell me how he always knew that he was going to marry me. Despite the fact that he put the ring on the wrong finger, I of course said yes with tears of joy!
 
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.
Pinterest boards and multiple lists helped me stay organized in regard to choosing my hair/makeup, outfits, jewelry, decor theme, colors, and mehndi. We chose Hotel Maya, because we absolutely loved the venue when we attended my cousin's wedding. We also used some of the same vendors from my sister's wedding (i.e., caterer, makeup artist, decorator), because we had such a great experience with them 2 years prior.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was in love with the colors and intricate work of Sabyasachi wedding lenghas, so I knew I wanted one with a similar design. I have always loved the colors maroon and coral pink, so it was easy for me to choose these two colors for my wedding lengha when I saw Sabyasachi lenghas with this color scheme. My cousin knew a store owner in India, so we sent him pictures of the maroon and coral pink Sabyasachi wedding lengha that I wanted. Through many Whatsapp texts, calls, and pictures between the owner and my cousin we were able to find the perfect lengha that fit my vision. The owner then took my measurements through text, altered the outfit, and shipped it over to me in time for the big day.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the wedding process was creating a vision for our wedding by deciding on the color scheme, decor theme, and outfits. It was fun skimming through Pinterest boards and bouncing ideas off of friends and family to help shape the vibe and look of the wedding. It was even more fun seeing how our vision came together so well on the day of the wedding, thanks to our amazing team.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Many guests fell in love with our venue Hotel Maya. They raved about the beautiful view of the marina that was visible during the wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The layout and decor of the hotel was also very unique and modern, which set a nice vibe for our guests throughout their stay. Many of our guests also loved the food that was catered from Mantra at the reception. They fell in love with the unique appetizers (e.g., Indian style bean and cheese tacos) and authentic North Indian dinner.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I will never forget those two moments when I was dancing with my new husband at our wedding reception. The surprise entrance dance is so memorable because it was so fun seeing our guests' surprised reactions as they cheered for us. Their energy made it so fun to bust it down on the dance floor with my new hubby. It was also special sharing the first dance with my husband. It was the only moment during the day when I felt so connected to him that I forgot about everyone else in the room.
 
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 had my henna party at the banquet hall of Tandoori Gardens in Anaheim. It was a night filled with amazing food (e.g., vegetable biriyani, samosa chaat, corn kebab), music, dancing, and of course mehndi. To add to the entertainment my best friend delivered a thoughtful and funny speech. We also had many danced performed by my nieces/nephews, my mother and aunts, and by yours truly. The banquet hall itself was beautifully set up; we simply added flowers and floating candles to add some color. We chose a turquoise light to illuminate the hall, to match my turquoise lengha.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I truly enjoyed my wedding and reception because I made a conscious decision not to stress on that day. I told myself that there was literally no way to change anything on the wedding day, and I allowed my coordinators to take the reins allowing me to just be present and not worry about the details. By placing trust in my team and making the conscious effort to not nit-pick or stress, I had so much fun hanging out with loved ones and appreciating the fruits of our labor.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Jewelry: I chose choker necklace sets with matching earrings and tikka. Two sets were bought on Amazon, and one was bought at Sari Palace in Artesia.
 
Decor: I chose an Enchanted theme for the reception with greenery and a color scheme of champagne gold and white. The table decor consisted of trees, flowers, hanging crystals, and votive candles. My lengha at the reception also mimicked this color scheme against the giant greenery backdrop.
 
Cake: We actually chose to eliminate a cake so we could replace the cake cutting ceremony with more time to hang out with guests! Instead, we served mini desserts (cheesecake, cake pops, fruit tarts) from Great Dane Bakery.
 
Venue: We used the Vista Del Mar Pavilion for the wedding ceremony because it had a great view of the marina. This same area was lit up for the cocktail hour with cozy bonfire pits that guests were able to sit around sipping on their drinks and mingling. The reception was held in the ballroom with windowed walls to provide a constant view of the lit up marina.
 
Mehndi: I chose to make my mehndi fun by adding a Nike sign, UCLA logo, Lakers logo, my husband's name, and our wedding date scattered between my two arms.
 
Nike Bowties: My husband is known to wear Nike everyday; hence, the hashtag. Thus, we had a Nike bow tie made for my husband which said "Just Married" with a Nik swoosh. He wore this bow tie at the reception, while the groomsmen wore matching maroon bowties with Nike swooshes on it.
 
Snacks at Wedding: At the wedding ceremony, we placed a decorative pouch/purse on each chair filled with sweet and savory snacks. Our guests mentioned that they really appreciated having these snacks to munch on during the ceremony.


That is all for today, darlings! See you on Monday for more!

Stone Mountain, GA Indian Wedding by Brandon Andrews Photography

Welcome back, Maharanis! We hope you are having a safe and blessed Thursday. We are heading down to the end of this marvelous week, and as always, we have a re-fill of inspiration prepared just for you. Today we are double featuring the spectacular wedding between Natasha & Asif. You can relive this magical wedding by visiting today's gallery. And on this installment, we are presenting you a phenomenal film, both created by Brandon Andrews Photography, how cool is that? The Grand Opal Event Hall hosted the pre-wedding celebrations, and the exclusive Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort - Stone Mountain hosted the spectacular wedding ceremony and also the phenomenal wedding reception. I want to highlight in this episode the excellent planning and execution of every single detail from this celebration fully decored by Royal Dekors. If you were wondering who was the mastermind behind everything, let me tell you that it was none other than Amina Events, who delivered nothing but utter perfection throughout the entire wedding. This was a huge celebration, and every single guest enjoyed it to the fullest. But what left everyone speechless was the delicatessen prepared by Cafe Bombay Restaurant and Catering, who made everyone enjoy their delicious food. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below! You'll love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on an Indian dating app- Dil Mil. The first time we spoke on the phone, we spoke for over 4 hours and still didn't want to hang up. For our first date, he planned multiple activities for an entire day in NYC! It was way better than I had imagined and our day was supposed to end at 9pm, but it ended at 2am! And neither of us really wanted the day to end. We clicked so well and felt like we had known eachother forever! We were so comfortable with one another. That's when I knew he's the one for me!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Asif planned an elaborate proposal right where it had all started-- in NYC! He planned a weekend get away for us and took me back to every place where we went on our first date to relive that moment and then took me to a rooftop where he got on his knee and asked me to marry him! I'm really big on pictures so he made sure there was a photographer there too! It was a lovely, romantic and private affair.

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 went to India to shop for my outfits and jewelry. I did a lot of research about a year ahead of time for my vendors. I got a lot of hints and recommendations from Instagram and Maharani Weddings.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for shopping. The day after we landed, we went for shopping and I picked out a bunch of outfits. Out of all the outfits I tried, the white one stuck out the most and made me feel like that was my dress! I really wanted either an all white or blush lengha and wanted to pair it with either a red or hot pink dupatta on top. I found something even better than I had imagined. It was love at first sight! The entire family loved it the most too!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The way everything went so smooth and how much fun all our family and friends had! We loved every moment of it!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Find vendors that are easy to communicate with, that see your vision, and are easily reachable. A wedding coordinator is an absolute must to have a peace of mind on your wedding day! We had zero worries. Our coordinator, along with every single vendor, was amazing! We highly recommend all our vendors!

A brand new film will be unveiled tomorrow, so visit us back!

Today we are pleased to present to you all the beauty that surrounded Sonam & Sujit's big wedding celebration. The grand Crest Hollow Country Club was the perfect venue chosen by our lovebirds to tie the knot! And let me tell you that everyone enjoyed all the details from this venue that, along with the marvelous decoration crafted by Stylish Events, created the perfect environment for each celebration. To add the special touch, Sonam & Sujit planned the entire event to ensure they will have the wedding of their dreams. And once the planning was complete Detailed Affairs Team coordinated and executed everything to perfection. Just splendid! All of the glamour and elegance that our lovebirds displayed will enchant you. But, especially the royal look of Sonam, our gorgeous Maharani, as she was pampered before each event by Makeup By Khadija and Madame Exclusive, who made sure to assist her with all of her beauty and fashion needs. Today is unique as we are double featuring this lovely event. Yes, how cool is this? You can enjoy every detail of this wedding by visiting today's gallery. And if this is not enough, an emotive film created by the talented team from Regal Palette Studio will inspire you. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
How we met:
Sujit and I have a love story like no other couple. Our love goes all the way back to 7th grade. Yes, 7th grade! We are middle school sweethearts. It was right at the end of the school day in April 2005 when Sujit first saw me in the hallway as I was rushing to the debate team. Sujit later told me how taken back he was by my beauty and he was trying to think of an excuse to talk to me before he missed his chance. As I was about to open the door of the staircase, he said “Excuse me, do you have 50 cents I can borrow?” Immediately he thought to himself, “Seriously, that’s the best you can come up with?” I looked at him like he was crazy and said “No, and I don’t even know you!” and then ran off to my after school activity.

We didn’t see each other again till a month later. We bumped into each other in the cafeteria during lunch. I was looking down at my phone (a flip phone at that time by the way) and on my way to buy some cookies, and he was talking to one of his friends when we both collided. We looked at each other with a smile. I said, “Hey! You’re the guy that wanted to borrow money from me!” And he smiled and said, “Can I borrow a $1” in a joking manner. I said, “You’re crazy! What do you even need it for??” He laughed and replied, “I just want some cookies!” I laughed and walked away smiling.

The friendship:
Two weeks later, our fate brought us together yet again. This time it was outside after school. I was with my best friend waiting for an after school program to start, but I was really craving an M&M McFlurry. Since we couldn’t leave, my friend and I asked one of our other friends if he could bring us ice cream from McDonald’s which was a few blocks away. We gave him money and 10 minutes later, he comes back with the McFlurry in his hand. He was also walking back and conversing with another guy. It was Sujit! Our friend walks over to us and says “Here you go! Oh, and this is my friend, Sujit”. Sujit and I smiled at each other and I said, “We’ve met”.

From there, Sujit and I became friends and couldn’t help but want to spend all of our free time with each other. We hung out during lunch and after school almost every day. I loved how kind and genuine Sujit was and Sujit loved how open and honest I was.

When we started dating:
Fast forward another month. Sujit’s math class was in the same room as my homeroom. On June 17th, 2005, when the dismissal bell rang, I was walking into homeroom, and Sujit pulled me to the side of the classroom. He took his hat off and looked into my eyes. He smiled and said “Sonam, will you do me the honor and go out with me?” We got interrupted by the math/homeroom teacher. The teacher said “Mr. Suchdev don’t you have to get to your homeroom? Ms. Kapoor please take your seat”. I looked at Sujit and said “I’ll meet you outside after school”.

Both of our hearts were racing as we impatiently waited for dismissal. Sujit was so nervous, he was worried I would say no. I was hesitant because I knew we were both very young to be dating, yet my heart was so drawn to Sujit and I knew there was something special between us.

We met outside in the courtyard and Sujit looked at me and said, “Well?”. I smiled and said, “Yes!” We hugged each other and immediately were surrounded by our friends who were clapping, how cliché, but this is what happened!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Sujit proposed to me in the most romantic way ever! We had been dating for such a long time, so he wanted to make everything perfect. Sujit told me we had to attend a very important fundraiser his uncle was hosting the day after Thanksgiving. He also told me that he had an exclusive work holiday party that same night at 48 Lounge in NYC, so I should dress appropriately to attend both events. I was so confused how to dress since one event was a fundraiser and the other was at a lounge! I asked him if we could skip the holiday party since it would be a long day, and Sujit sent me a pic of the email invite from Steve Madden. He explained this was a very exclusive invite only event and showed me the flyer and how it wasn’t sent as a mass distribution email. I decided to go with a lace black dress, and paired it with my black Christian Loubitons. Sujit suggested I paint my nails red since it is attention grabbing for when we shake hands with people at the fundraiser.

November 23, 2018 finally came and I decided to pamper myself and got my hair blown out. I didn’t know it at the time, but Sujit called my hair dresser that morning and told her to make sure she did an extra nice job on my hair because he was going to propose. He told her “Please don’t make it obvious and don’t let her find out”.

3pm Sujit met me at my house to pick me up and I noticed he looked stressed and a little disoriented. I asked him if everything was okay, and he responded, “We have to help my uncle setup a few things at the venue and we are a little late”. I didn’t know at the time but Sujit was stressed because it was frigid cold and he was planning on proposing outside. He had actually come from the venue where him, his sister, my mom & my cousin were helping setup the proposal!
Sujit and I pulled into the parking lot at The Sterlings, in Bethpage and he immediately said, "There’s no cars here because no one is here yet". I was so confused because he mentioned we were late, but I didn’t bother asking. We step out of the car, and he said “We don’t have coat check so we should leave our jackets in the car”. I replied, “Well that’s ghetto”. He laughed and said, “Let’s go cutie”. I was shivering and quickly ran inside. (It was 20 degrees that day).

Sujit grabbed my hand and said, “It’s this way”. As we were walking to the hall in the back, he told me I looked so beautiful. We arrive at the hall, and he pushes the door open and the song “Differences” by Genuwine started playing (our song from 7th grade). I was so confused because there were photographers and a setup that looked like a proposal and I looked at Sujit & said, “Is this for me?” He smiled and said, “Yes”. I started crying immediately. I was waiting for this day for so long and my emotions got the best of me. Sujit walked me down a white carpet with purple rose petals, and purple balloons everywhere. (Purple is my favorite color.) He picked out the most romantic sonnet from Shakespeare and read it to me during the proposal. He popped the question with the most gorgeous cushion cut diamond ring and I was hysterical. I said, “Yes!” and we popped rose champagne (my favorite). Sujit planned out every little detail and I was so ecstatic. After finishing the glass of champagne, he turned to me & said, “I have another surprise for you”. I said, “What!?” Sujit said, “It’s outside”. He took my hand and led me outside, where there was an aerial banner flying around which read, “SONAM, I LOVE YOU. WILL YOU MARRY ME?” I was in shock because of how perfect this proposal was.

After taking our pictures with the photographer, I called my mom in excitement to tell her the good news. I told Sujit I wanted to go home to show her the ring but Sujit kept stalling. We made 3 stops before he finally took me home. I open the door and heard people scream "Congratulations!". It was my family and Sujit’s family all at the door. At this point, I understood why Sujit was stalling. He was stalling so my mom had enough time to get the family together to celebrate the big moment.
Fast forward a few hours, we say goodbye to everyone so we can drive into the city for the holiday work party. I was so sad I couldn’t hang out with my cousins longer, but knew this party was important to Sujit so I didn’t complain. We reached the city and parked a few blocks away from the lounge. As soon as we arrive, Sujit tells the hostess, “We’re here for the Steve Madden Party”, and she took both our coats and led us to the back. Out of nowhere a bunch of people scream “CONGRATULATIONS!” I was so caught off guard. Sujit gave me yet another surprise and invited all our friends out to celebrate with us. I said, “But what about the Steve Madden party!? There was a flyer, I’m so confused!” He said, “I had to do something to keep you surprised!” We partied all night with our friends and it was the best ending to the most perfect proposal!

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.
Don't let anyone tell you planning an Indian wedding in one year is enough time! Sujit and I got married exactly one year from the day he proposed, and boy did it feel like crunch time! It takes a village.

We looked at a few different venues, but ultimately fell in love with The Crest Hollow Country Club because of how well maintained it was and we loved their customer service and how attentive they were to our wedding needs.

I struggled with finding someone for hair and makeup because the MUA I originally wanted (I won't mention any names) was very rude and unaccommodating. After this bad experience, my wedding coordinator, Arun from the Detailed Affairs Team, suggested Makeup by Khadija. She was an absolute doll and I ended up becoming friends with her after the wedding. I loved every look and would definitely recommend her to all future brides!

My outfits were all from India and my mom found designers for us to work with to create the perfect sangeet, wedding and reception outfits for the wedding of my dreams! The sangeet and wedding lenghas were from Madame Exclusive and my reception dress was from LaPalette.

Our floral and decor, which was stunning for each and every event was from Stylish Events NY. Kashi, the owner, took the time to sit with Sujit and I and really understood our vision of how we wanted each event to look. My favorite decor was for the wedding ceremony. We went with the "Maharani Mandap" (how fitting) and had a platform catwalk for our walk down the isle.

For my henna, I knew I wanted Henna by Inder as soon as I saw her Instagram page. That was probably one of the easier decisions in the planning process. Inder did an amazing job and was very fun to chat with while she did my bridal henna.

We chose DJ USA to DJ all our events and they rocked the party! Sharad was amazing and very hands on during the planning process and everyone on the team was so professional. They DJ'd our engagement party as well, and we plan on using them for future events.

For our photos and videos we ended up going with Regal Palette Studio. I found them on Instagram and called and spoke to Hershey over the phone, and instantly knew they were the right fit. I appreciated his level of professionalism and patience when answering all our questions. Wedding planning is a very stressful process, but becomes easier when you have vendors who truly care about you. Sujit and I were very happy with RPS' work, and would book them again for future events.

Our catering was from Beneres and we are so happy we went with them. Our guests still tell us about how much they loved the food at each event. For the reception, we had specialty desserts from The Paanwala and oh my goodness... those paan shots were amazing! Worth every penny!

One week before our wedding, I came across @Inthedetailnyc Instagram page, and I am so happy I did. I worked with Manisha to create our wedding welcome sign and our signature drinks bar signs. She was very professional and was able to deliver my signs in just 3 days. The signs added a special touch to our wedding.

Shopping for our wedding bands was my favorite part. We worked with New York Diamonds, Inc. in the diamond district to customize beautiful matching wedding bands. My husband also bought my engagement ring from them. Anu and Neha are absolutely amazing and were very patient with us during the process.

Last, but not least, our wedding and reception went so smooth and without a hitch thanks to The Detailed Affairs team. Arun and his team were on top of everything! Without a doubt, I know if we didn't hire them, Sujit and I would've been so stressed. All our guests asked how we were so calm and looked stress free during the wedding, and it was all thanks to Arun and his team. I would recommend them to all future brides!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was saving up my vacation time for the wedding and honeymoon, so my mom went to India and did all my wedding shopping for me. She has great taste so I trusted her with picking all my outfits and jewelry. I always knew I wanted to wear a red lengha, but my mom did one better and helped me design a custom lengha with a beautiful matching veil. It was stunning and the jewelry she picked was equally as beautiful. From the gorgeous pink veil, down to the custom heart shaped latkans, the lengha was absolute perfection.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
EVERYTHING! We still get calls and messages about how fun it was. Our guests told us how much they loved the food at each event, our farewell vidai (in a helicopter), and the performances at our Sangeet!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
1. Our first look was so special and the moment was very precious. It was an emotional high and both Sujit and I teared up in joy when we first saw each other. I will never forget the twinkle in his eye when he saw me, his bride to be, moments before our wedding.

2. Our vidai was a special moment for us because we had a farewell in a helicopter. It was the first time Sujit and I flew in a chopper and it was so fun after such a serious goodbye to my family and loved ones. It was special to be with my husband and start the next chapter in our lives together flying away in a helicopter. How cinematic!

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.
The Sangeet was so special because of all the performances. My cousins, Sujit's siblings and cousins, my mom and aunts, Sujit's groomsmen, and me and my bridesmaids all did performances. Sujit's family even did a cute skit with all of them dancing together. We really felt like we were in a Bollywood movie!

I especially loved our look for the Sangeet night. Sujit and I wore matching green and silver outfits and everyone told us we looked like a King and Queen that night. My lengha was sparkling and the glam makeup and hair was the stunning finishing touch.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't let the stress get to you! Easier said than done, but remember that this moment doesn't last forever. The wedding week especially, will fly by so fast and in the blink of an eye, it's all over. Try to enjoy every moment, and leave the stressing to everyone else. I am so grateful for my mom and maid of honor (my cousin Nikeeta), because they really worked hard to make sure I enjoyed every moment and that I didn't get wrapped up in any drama or wedding politics!

We have more for you, so if we inspired you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. You will love it!

Charlotte, NC Indian Wedding by Joseph Minasi Studios

Good morning, Maharanis! It is Friday and our filmy time of the day is here! You will be delighted by the beauty that surrounded Khusbu & Vikesh's wedding festivities. Today we can admire the phenomenal talent of Joseph Minasi Studios, who captured every single detail and intimate moment and transformed it into a marvelous film that will take your breath away. So let's not wait any longer and let me take you to the exclusive Westin Charlotte, the ideal venue chosen by our lovely duo to perform their promise of love. The event was orchestrated by Envi Event Planning, who took our couple's vision and created the wedding of their dreams. To add a special touch to the evening, Weddings InStyle crafted a fabulous decoration creating a perfect environment for all celebrations. Speaking about perfection, Khusbu, our gorgeous Maharani, dazzled everyone with her royalty look and presence. She trusted all beauty needs to Makeup Lovers by jenny le, who made sure to highlight her natural beauty. The delicious food from Chowpatty Foods, the live music from Sumukh Bhatia, and of course, the beats from MVPDJs, were the perfect complement for this magical celebration. If you want to relive it, don't think twice and click the play icon down below.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always dreamed of having an ivory lengha with a red dupatta. Before visiting Mumbai I had a few designers in mind, Anita Dongre being one of my absolute favorites. The first shop I visited was hers and the first bridal lengha I tired on was my dream bridal lengha! It was truly a fairytale moment.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We received numerous compliments on all of our vendors. In particular, our guest loved our mandup. We asked our decorator to custom build a 16-foot floral dome mandup that could be suspend from the ceiling in order to give it an open concept. Our guest loved seeing the whole wedding without any obstructions.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

Whippany, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Good morning, Maharanis! It is Friday, and like every day, we are here to re-fill your inspiration. A wedding is something we all dreamed about since we were just kids. One of the most fabulous days in our life is when you see that dream accomplished. Today, we want to present you with Shivani & Zeal's, dream come true. To begin this journey, let me take you to the exclusive Hanover Marriott. A perfect venue, chosen by our lovebirds to tie the knot! First of all, we would like to remark how our gorgeous Maharani showcased her natural beauty in such a perfect way. She chose the Bridal Butterflies' team for her beauty needs. And they delivered nothing but perfection! And we cannot forget to mention the marvelous Mehndi art that Rita Shah's Mehndi created for our bride. Let me tell you that everyone admired how dazzling she looked during the entire event. This was a memorable celebration that will forever be recalled thanks to the delicious food served by Rasoi, the cake and treats from Palermo Bakery, the decoration crafted by JP Decor, and of course, the phenomenal beats from M4U Events, who turned this gala into an epic party. You can relive every single detail of this moment by hitting the play icon below. So, get ready to admire the talented work of Lightyear Studio!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my groom in college, and it was not love at first sight! We became really good friends and before we knew it, we had both fallen for each other. There wasn't one defining moment where I knew that he was the one. It was a culmination of events, the little things, that added up.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had a trip planned to Italy and France. I am the kind of person who has a very detailed itinerary when I go on vacation so he had to tell me that he had a photoshoot planned for us when we were in Paris because I had kept telling him how it's so cute that couples do photoshoots in these nice places. To avoid any chances of me finding the ring, he had his brother fly into Paris with the ring the day before! We did our photoshoot, and at the end, he got down on one knee outside of the Eiffel Tower.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I knew from the beginning that I wanted a traditional red lehenga for my wedding day. I am also a very indecisive person and can never pick anything on my own because I am never sure of whether it looks good. I was trying on different lehengas and my daddy said "This is the one" when I tried one on. That is the one I ended up buying!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The entire process was very enjoyable (and stressful), but our favorite part about the wedding-planning process was how much we learned about each other throughout the process and how much we learned about ourselves as well... our likes, dislikes, what we agree on, what we disagree on, and how to meet in the middle.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved our DJ/MC and our decorations!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment when I entered for my wedding was the most amazing feeling. I wanted time to freeze and to be able to capture the reactions of all of our friends and family. Also, our first look! My fiancé had not seen my outfit or any of my accessories prior to the first look so it was a complete surprise for him which made it all the more special.

If we inspire you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you on Monday. So stay tuned!
