Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by Hakim's Studio

Happy Wednesday, ladies! Guess what? It is time for a new film! And we are beyond excited to share Malavika & Jai's wedding with all of you. So don't think twice, our a glass of your favorite beverage, and get ready to enjoy the mesmerizing film captured by the talented and highly experienced crew at Hakim's Studio. Every scene of this wedding is beautiful as inspiring, and it certainly is the best way to start this Wednesday off with the right foot. Although everything was fantastic, nothing compared to the captivating look of our gorgeous Maharani Malavika. She was a vision of beauty, and we loved her bridal look so much that we are still sighing over it. The traditional and fashionable Saree from Sakhi Boutique, the exquisite makeup by Makeup with Veena, and the sleek hairstyle designed by Femme Beauty by Bhavna were all a perfect combination of beauty and traditional flair. But that is not all! She took her fashion game to the next level with the fabulous Mehndi outlined by Forever Beauty by Manisha. And we cannot stress how much we loved it! If you don't want to miss any detail of this lovely wedding, hit the play icon below, and get ready to have a great time. You will love it! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met at a pizza shop in Tallahassee, Florida. (You can see our story with pictures on our website!)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Jai told me that we were attending a work party. I was tricked! Once I got to the top of the SCAD building in Midtown, Atlanta, I was surprised with a outdoor path of milestone pictures. Our siblings (my sister and his brother) were there as well with signs.

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.
Planning a wedding and then replanning during a pandemic was difficult! It had its ups and downs. We had all of our vendors booked and all decisions made by the first week of March... right before everything shut down! So we had to be creative and replan.

We ended up hiring vendors for photography and videography, food, and hair/makeup/mehndi... nothing else! Everything else was DIY based on visions we had for our bigger wedding but down to scale. We did decor, music, everything else!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted to do red because it was the most transitional. I ended up wearing a sari because it’s the most custom in Konkani culture (I am Konkani and Jai, my now husband, is Gujarati)

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think it was the most enjoyable planning the little details such as wedding favors (I.e custom popcorn box we made for the attendees, personalized masks and mask bags). It felt very personal and unique, a way to bring out or personalities and maybe something we might not have been able to do if we had a bigger wedding as previously planned.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think the guests were pleasantly surprised about a couple of things. 1) how intimate and fun the wedding was due to size because everyone was involved in some way and connected through the whole ceremony 2) the personalized favors as mentioned in the last question

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think just the ceremony in general, having everyone in that small room pay attention, laugh along with us... it was so intimate and I would not trade it for the bigger wedding.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
No matter how much you plan, there will be random last minute things that do not go according to plan. Take deep breaths, reach out to support, and remember that at the end of all this, you will be married and it will be worth it!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Every vendor listed here was AMAZING in hearing our needs, working with us, and being flexible through the pandemic wedding journey (even pre-pandemic). I genuinely highly recommend each vendor listed here.

We are preparing somehting extra special for you tomorrow, so make sure to join us.

Chicago, IL Indian Wedding by Hakim's Studio

Good Morning, Maharanis! Autumn is the season of romance, and this October soiree is proof of it, so I'm sure you will fall in love with it. Hakim's Studio's great film captures the story, emotions, and details of Asfand & Noorain's grand Ismaili Muslim wedding! The splendid Chicago Marriott Naperville was the perfect location to host a set of three main wedding events. The Pithi/Sangeet night was the first celebration, and we adore how our lovely couple matched their outfits for this special occasion. It truly reflects their vibrant personalities. All guests experienced Chicago Marriott Naperville's splendor and the luxe décor and stage setup created by Ruba Planners for each celebration. The result was a dream come true! The Nikkah is the heart of an Indian Muslim wedding, and it's one of the highlights of this film, thanks to Maharani Noorain. She looked stunning for the ritual thanks to Saleha Abbasi's hair & makeup team's magic touch and an enchanting jewelry set she chose from Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry. Right after the sacred union, a truly customized reception featured all weddings' most iconic detail, a lovely cake by The Baking Institute that gave a lot of photo-worthy moments to Hakim's Studio. On the other hand, Sabri Nihari Fine Pakistani Cuisine came up with unique and over-the-top food options for hungry wedding attendees. Make sure to watch this collection of timeless and precious moments of Asfand & Noorain; click on the reel below!

Get all inspiration you need for throwing a perfect Indian wedding, from decorations, planning, decor and more! Make sure to come back tomorrow for more ideas.

Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by Hakim's Studio

Happy Wednesday, Maharanis! How is your week going so far? We bet it is going great! And it will get even better after you take a peek at Seema & Daniel's wedding because it is one for the books. It overflows with so much beauty and traditional flair that you will get tons of inspiring ideas, so let's jump right into it! We are starting this Wednesday by looking at the cinematographic delight captured by none other than Hakims Studio - Photography and Cinematography. And right from the bat, we have to say that this wedding celebrated at the Fernbank Museum is like no other you've seen before! Due to COVID-19, wedding plans had to change, but Seema & Daniel, along with the Planner Nida from Red & Gold Events, managed to make it through. And the end result turned out absolutely beautiful! A dinosaur-themed museum, traditional flair, and luxurious ornaments put together by The Events Designer by S.A were the perfect combination to take this wedding to the next level. Hands down, Seema & Daniel couldn't have asked for a better place to unite their lives in marriage. After the ceremony, there was a fabulous reception to celebrate this life milestone. All guests danced the night away and enjoyed the culinary experience prepared by Cafe Bombay Restaurant and Catering. If you don't want to miss any detail of this fabulous event, hit the play icon below and get ready to dive into this real-life fairytale. Believe us; you will love every single scene!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him through a dating phone app. We first met at a go-karting place and we just talked for hours. At the time we met, I wasn’t in the place for a relationship but after months of being friends and realizing I would not want to talk to anyone else, I knew we should start this journey. And look! We made it! Friends for life and marriage.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
No surprise on the proposal or the ring. We planned a trip to Atlanta to meet my parents so that Daniel could ask them for permission so to say. We had the ring picked out and ready for the trip.

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 was a pathology fellow at the time so I was really busy. My family was helping plan the whole wedding and reception. Because I wanted them to have help, I choose Red and Gold Events to help out. Nida was a god send finding all the right people and really making the day special. My parents wanted a big wedding so we had a limited number of choices. In the end, we chose Fernbank for the openness and the beauty inside.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a color in mind for my dress (a blue or green - my favorite colors). My mom kept buying ones she liked online and hand stitched them to my size. My dresses were bought fabric only and she put them together for me.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
This year was a hectic planning process given COVID. We did the best we could and in the end it came out well but those last few months of planning were hectic and not enjoyable given the number of cancellations and phone calls.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The photo booth. Most of my guests had never used some before and they really enjoyed making funny faces and getting a memorable photo out of the night.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be patient and stay strong. For me, a pandemic was going to take all the joy of getting married away but with the support of family and great friends made during the planning process, it all comes together. Regardless the time it happens, it will happen and your marriage will be enjoyable and memorable for years to come.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Henna was done two days before the event by Nikki. She did a great job coming to our house and being safe during the day. Because my mom treats everyone like family, we specially cooked lunch for her. Cake was done by a local cake artist and she took my idea and did a great job. Always look around when choosing a vendor. You can always get a good deal. Hakim studios did an amazing job on the photos and the album.
