Chicago, IL Fusion Wedding by Imagination Designers

Happy Thursday, Maharanis! I can't think of a better way to start the day than with this lovely pair celebrating their wedding! Thanks to Imagination Designers, we are able to enjoy the elegance and gorgeousness of this lovebirds' special day, as their lens was able to capture the most amazing and playful moments of this breathtaking and colorful celebration. Every single detail surrounding this wedding was captured on this film, and it definitely reflects how happy these two were. If you want to take a look at the insights of this nuptial celebration, you can visit the fascinating gallery in our Platinum Guide Blog created by WS Photography. The exclusive Chicago Marriott Southwest at Burr Ridge hosted both the ceremony and the reception for this newlyweds and it was the perfect place for this event as it exceeded all expectations. So get ready and take a look at this film, I'm sure that you are going to enjoy! 

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Tyler and I were set up by my childhood best friend, Julie, who was Tyler went to college with. She really went all out trying to get us together. She sent each of us pictures of the other constantly until finally we started talking. She was right because we really hit it off. Our first date was just supposed coffee which turned into an 8 hour "unicorn" date (our friend Dave came up with the term). I knew we had something special when we could spend almost entire day together and were still constantly chatting afterward.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Northern Wisconsin for my birthday weekend. I didn't really think it was anything besides a birthday trip because we typically take one each year.  On our trip Tyler wanted to take me to Bond Falls which is a waterfall in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that he visited a lot as a child. When we got to the bottom of the waterfall and popped the question. It was so private, romantic, and perfect. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since we had a fusion wedding we really wanted to represent both cultures and sides. So for the ceremony I really wanted to go traditional Hindu. I had already decided on a deep red/maroon with gold. We shopped all around Ahmadabad and Baroda until I found the perfect color and detailing.

For the reception gown I decided with a western white gown. Since my mother-in-law and friends weren't with me in India when I got my wedding lengha I really wanted to share the experience with them. I knew I wanted off white and lace, and luckily found something amazing the first day shopping!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The dancing and the food were big hits at our wedding. The entire weekend was a party. For a lot of people, especially Tyler's family this was their first time experiencing an Indian Wedding and they had a blast with all of the traditions. The dance floor at the reception was overflowing and everyone from little kids to aunts and uncles danced the night away. My cousin even performed a roller skating routine on the dance floor. I know the bride is supposed to be the star but everyone saw how much fun Tyler was having and it was contagious. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Tyler and I got some time during cocktail hour to just spend time together. We got to see the reception space before everyone else and just got to soak in the weekend. It was great to steal away some time with just the two of us.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The week of the wedding just try to relax and enjoy the moment. You worked so hard during the planning process and this is really the time to take it in and enjoy. I promise the little things that might not work out exactly right won't even be a concern. It's all about spending time with friends, family, and most of all your love!

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this love story, stay tuned for more. Happy Thursday, Maharanis!

Anaheim, CA Indian Wedding by Avec Lumiere Productions

Today, we set sail to steamy California to witness the highlights of Foram & Hardik's grand Indian wedding! Maharani Foram sure did have the wedding of her dreams as we will see. The bash was overflowing with taste and heartwarming love, the kind of love that gets stronger when everything is possible to celebrate it. So if the celebration was incredibly grand, imagine the size of their devotion! Our ravishing bride was looking out of this world for the long-awaited nuptials with a magnificent mehndi design by Hinal's Beauty Studio. For the main ceremony, she rocked an extremely gorgeous coral lengha with details in gold that matched with Raja Hardik's stylish champagne sherwani. We are absolutely loving this duo's energy and the color palette chosen for the spree. So beautiful! After a rollercoaster of emotions during the union, the newlyweds and guests knew it was time to party, so dancing, fun and lots of smiles were expected. The awe-inspiring couple came out looking amazing, like two shooting stars about to travel the skies together. Our bride was wearing a deep blue lengha with tones in silver and grey and I just can't believe how beautiful the whole ensemble was. Want to see in detail what went on? Hit play below and relieve Foram & Hardik's magical day, thanks to Avec Lumiere Productions.

Palm Springs, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Matthew David Studio

Hello, darlings! I'm completely smitten by this adorable fusion wedding just like Nisha was smitten by Paul when they first met! We were lucky to get their wedding album by Matthew David Studio and featured it on our blog, you MUST check it out! And now we have their unique highlight video also by Matthew David Studio! This video really captures the essence of this adorable duo and I'm loving the retro idea, such a precious treasure that I'm sure it will be played many many times! This Desert Sunset themed wedding will surely inspire you and delight you as their guests were by Ronobir Lahiri skilfully playing his sitar, what a dream! Maharani Nisha was a Bohemian-Rajasthani style queen who managed to blend two cultures seamlessly including her mehndi designs by Hinal's Beauty Studio with the help of planning expert Sweet Emilia Jane. Let's join this beautiful couple through their most special moments surrounded by their families!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
After moving to Los Angeles from Toronto, Canada at 30. I moved to a new office and knew very few people in LA. I had always met people through friends in Toronto but in LA, in a new city, I decided to go online!
 
Of course, I had a very busy job that offers me the benefit of traveling all over the world, so it was hard to actually make time to date.
 
I finally connected with Paul on Match.com when he messaged me a very genuine, sweet message that I didn’t see until weeks later. He ended up in my junk box! You see, he was out my filters based on age and height. I had wanted someone 32-40, 6’-6’5”.  It turns out Paul was 41 and 6’8”!!
 
I got an Alert to checked my emails and noticed his message there. Once I read his message I knew that he was different.
 
Because of the travel, I didn’t end up meeting him until three months later but we had texted and chatted a little bit in between.
 
When I finally met him on a date and saw him, I was smitten and so was he. I found out he was also a Canadian, both born in Edmonton, Alberta.  We had the same humor, senseability, values, and love of life. I just wanted to be by his side from the moment we met. From that moment on, we were inseparable...
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After dating for 2 years, buying a house and living together for 1.5 years, we were starting to build a new life in LA with amazing friends and family.
 
Paul knew I wanted to get married and start our own family we wanted to establish a foundation together.
 
So every trip and outing we had, I expected him to pop the question, but of course, Paul knows I’m too hard to surprise, so he had to catch me off guard...
 
One day, Jan 23, 2018, after eating a delicious meal with our friends, we all come and start talking about the importance of family and friends and building our life together, my little nephew, comes around with a ring box, gives it to Paul and he gets in his knee! In our living room, out of the blue!! I was shocked and elated and so happy it was in our home that we built with people we loved.
 
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 wanted our wedding in California. The majority of our friends and family live in Canada and elsewhere, so we wanted to create a warm home away from home and to celebrate in one place for our two-day event.
 
Palm Springs was one of the places we traveled the most together in our relationships, so we knew the desert was the place to wed.  I love traveling to Rajasthan in India and wanted something to reflect that feel in California.
 
When we finally found our venue and all the little eclectic influences we knew that the place was it!
 
We fell in love with The Colony Palms and the idea of having the whole place to ourselves and loved ones to celebrate the occasion.
 
Indian weddings are not a common thing in Palm Springs so coordinating these details took a lot of time and thought. I wanted to maintain the beauty and the culture of a Hindu wedding but I wanted an aesthetic that fit a more Bohemian, Rajasthani style.
 
I made sure that our Pundit, Music, Food, Clothing, Entertainment, and overall feel was true to Hindu culture but the wedding planner, photographer were local Californian.
 
We wanted to honor the fact that we both had different cultures and create a fusion that highlighted our favorite elements.
 
Since we had a fall November wedding, the colors were peach, coral, burgundy, ivory, pink and gold. The overall theme was Desert Sunset.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Being from Canada, I knew that the best Indian clothes close to me were in Brampton Ontario.  Luckily I go back-and-forth to Toronto quite a bit for work and I was able to browse lots of boutiques with my mom before I found the right one.
 
I’ve always loved Bombay Trendz they have a very high-end fashion with reasonable prices and can do customization. I’m taller and their lenghas always fit my body perfectly.
 
I found both my henna and bridal Lengha there, as well as Paul’s wedding Shirwani. Because I have a creative job at work buying furniture my favorite part of the process was picking the colors and reconfiguring how I wanted it to look and fit in our theme and blend together for the events. 
 
I wanted to make sure the wedding was full of vibrant color but I also didn’t want the traditional red because of our desert backdrop, so I opted for soft peaches, burgundy, and ivory.
 
I was most inspired by Varun Bahl and Anita Dongres high waisted skirts, tight floral embroidery and contrasting soft palettes.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning the outfits, the decor, and the rickshaw!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved all the details and the intimacy of the venue. The highlight was definitely our entertainment including Paul’s Band Hiway 2 playing at the Henna night, Ronobir Lahiri playing the Sitar at our cocktail event and The Belly Twins at the reception.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment was sitting under the ceremonial mandap with our Pandit, both our families staring at our loved ones knowing that our lives were bonded. Seeing both our families and cultures unite in this way was beautiful and felt meaningful and progressive.
 
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.
Henna party included a fusion of California, Canada, and Gujarat with Mexican food for dinner, Henna, Garba, Dandia Raas in the evening ended off by a stellar performance by Paul’s Canadiana Rock band, Hiway 2.This was an introduction and collaboration for everyone to participate in both Hindu & Canadian celebration!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Have a vision for the day and make sure you have the right people supporting you, so you can be calm and relaxed through the process. I planned most of the wedding details alone in the first four months but leaned on my amazing Bridesmaids, my Mom and wedding planner six months before the final day.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Other than details given by wedding planner:
 
A lot of details and guest favors were ordered through my favorite store in Rajasthan, Anokhi.
 
The details of the block print were reflected in handkerchiefs and table napkins.
 
The jewelry was passed down through the family were ordered through India.
 
Bridesmaids outfits were from Priti Sahni.
 
Bicycle rickshaw ordered through Classic Home and fixed and decorated by our bridesmaids & groomsmen!
 
Happy Monday!
