Alberta, CA Sikh Wedding by Michael J. Scott Productions

Hey there, dolls! A splendid union returns today to delight us with a marvelous film that will take your breath away! After a beautiful photography feature brought to us Andras Schram Photography, the brilliant Michael J. Scott Productions takes us to Alberta, Canada to relive all the splendor that surrounded Arpen & Neil during their grand Sikh wedding. Lynn Fletcher Events planned this memorable celebration that started at the Empire Banquet Hall and continued at the Azuridge Estate Hotel. The decor experts from Flower Artistry were in charge of decorating the main events, and what excellent job they did! While Book Glow Beauty dolled up our beautiful bride with a gorgeous look that is undoubtedly one of the most fabulous we have seen! Emotions, music, grandiose styles, and incredible landscapes are just a few things that make this highlight film one for the books. Hit play now loves and enjoy the creative visual work of Michael J. Scott Productions!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Neil and I met when I was in my final year of dental school and while he was completing his surgical residency program; our connection was instantaneous. We had seen each other a few times at the hospital, decided to grab coffee - and the rest is history! I knew he was the one after I learned how sweet, ambitious, and funny he is. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Neil surprised me with the proposal over a romantic dinner overlooking the Chicago skyline at The Signature Room at the 95th. I had no idea it was coming, and he had the waitress capture pictures of the entire thing; we celebrated afterwards with champagne & dessert - it was perfect.
 
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 kept organized by creating checklists; we were engaged for a year and a half before the wedding, so I knew what I needed to have booked at 12, 6, 3 months out. Pre-planning all of that helped me stay stress-free and allowed us to enjoy and make the most of the wedding events. Our vendors were also amazing - from the photographer, videographer, wedding decor & coordination, hair & makeup - our teams were so fabulous. I would definitely recommend them for future couples.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I honestly thought I was going to wear red; however, when I tried on that Rimple & Harpreet outfit, I knew it was the one. The intricacy of the textiles inspired by ancient India were stunning; and I loved that it was traditional, yet unique. Padmaavat is one of my favourite Indian films, especially because of the beautiful pieces that Rimple & Harpreet designed - I definitely had them in mind when I traveled to India. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they enjoyed the outdoor ceremony; the setting was stunning. Honestly, we were very happy with the venue that we chose - it had a very intimate feel, which is exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most memorable moment for me was when my parents walked me down the aisle and that first look with Neil; it was very special.
 
We hope to see you, tomorrow Maharanis! One more spectacular film is ready to be unveiled!

San Jose del Cabo, MX Indian Wedding by Michael J. Scott Productions

Ready to be visually dazzled? Today's filmy thanks to Michael J. Scott Productions is definitely a highlight of the week here in Maharani Weddings. The shots over the roaring ocean, all the dances, and the striking landscapes make up for a cinematic experience not to miss. Samneet & Harnoop went the extra mile in terms of style and elegance for their nuptials. Their vision was this grand flair that even gave the impression of being on vacation! So amazing! The Paradisus Los Cabos was the venue of choice, and these lovebirds couldn't have made a better one. We are absolutely certain that the guests had the time of their lives. No less! When you are in the paradisiac Mexican beaches, fun and beauty are expected. So, what are you waiting for? Hit play below for all the details!  

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Me and Noopa have known each other since grade 7 and have been really good friends since! We’ve grown together for so many years, including 6 years of a long-distance relationship. If you can get through that, you can get through anything! 

 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since we had a beach wedding, I wanted something lightweight, comfortable, and timeless. Anjul Bhandari and her team fit the profile and I was so happy with my chikankari lengha! 

 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Definitely the boat party! After our wedding, we had rented a boat for our guests to party on. DJ Hark kept the party going and it was such a blast. We saw the beautiful sunset in Los Cabos, while dancing away to Bhangra music. It was truly unforgettable! 


Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment my parents saw me after I got ready was very emotional for us and it’s something I’ll always remember from our big day. Also, Noopa and I truly enjoyed every moment of our wedding week, which is also something we’ll both remember! 

 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress- it will all come together! The most important part is to enjoy your special day and soak it all in!

Riviera Maya, MX Pakistani Wedding by A&A Video Productions

What are the first couple of things that come into mind when you see "Destination Weddings" on our site? Exotic places, lavish decoration, over the top galas and glittering glam maybe? Well, for today's celebration, all of them apply! Iqra & Zain decided to tie the knot in the most ravishing kind of way and we are loving it completely. Our friends from A&A Videos Productions truly outdid themselves with today's filmy and photographs! Water drums, fire dancers, indoor fireworks and post-wedding boat parties are just some of the things you will encounter. The Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya was looking its best to house this gala as we will see, so, what else can you ask for when you have the ocean as the guest of honor for your wedding? Really few things top a beachfront wedding, and this one is truly a marvelous example of that! Hit play below to have a glimpse of everything that went on for Iqra & Zain's day of magic!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Zain flew into my hometown in Virginia all the way from Texas with his entire family. I had the expectation that his family would come over for dinner at our house as they have done before. After their flight landed, I was texting Zain to make sure everything was okay, and providing details about dinner at our place. He wasn’t answering which was completely unusual of him. My parents then said they had to step out to run a quick errand and will be back shortly. I didn’t understand why my parents were leaving right before we were expecting guests. The next thing I know, I am all alone at home, confused about where everyone was. My sister then called me saying she was picking me up to pick up Zain’s family from their hotel. At that point, I was extremely sketched out and wondered why he wasn’t Uber-ing like he said. My sister drove out and we ended up at a small lake next to my neighborhood. My sister started running away from me so I followed her while extremely confused. From a distance a saw a bunch of people lined up on the sides of the pier and candles lit in the dusk. I walked closer and saw mine and Zain’s entire family and best friends lined up on the pier, with a trail of rose petals and candles along the entire pier. My favorite song “see the light” from the movie Tangled played whole as the sun was setting, and I ended at a heart-shaped from rose petals and candles, and Zain standing at the top of it. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was so perfect and the best part was that everyone I love, was involved in such a big moment in 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.
Zain and I got engaged on September 16, 2017, and immediately started to brainstorm on how we wanted to have our wedding. We both decided that a destination wedding is what we wanted. It wasn't easy and took a lot of convincing for both of our families to agree. After all of our research, we decided to have our wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico because of all the South Asian Wedding vendors that were available there.  At that point, all of my friends and families were thrilled and completely on board. We started by reaching out to different Travel Agencies, particularly the ones that specialized in South Asian Destination Weddings. We ended up going with DestaWed, and signed a contract with the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, MX through them. After signing with them, I decided to plan this wedding of 5 events on my own, as I used my experience of events and corporate planning into my own wedding. During the 1-year planning process, I worked with my Event Consultant for the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, which made my process as smooth as can be.

My destination wedding events kicked off with an elegant Welcome Dinner that was located on the Maracas Terrace overlooking the ocean. During this event I wanted all my guests to start feeling like they were at a wedding while also on vacation. I wore a custom made saree that went elegantly with my theme. I kicked the event off with a welcome speech, followed by a showcase of interactive Water Drums. The Water Drums caught all of my wedding guests in surprise and the party had officially begun. We ended the event with the classing wedding shoe game which made all of my guests laugh.

The second event we held was a Pakistani traditional event known as the mehndi. This event is filled with sweet feeding and dancing rituals. I wore a custom multi-colored lehenga which basically matched my LED dance floor. We kicked off this event with another show stopper surprise by including a fire show for our guests to enjoy. I kept the entertainment a secret throughout my planning process and my guests were astonished and enjoyed the spectacular show. We continued the event by having choreographed dances by my guests and myself. The event ended with an open dance floor and LED glow dhol fiesta.

The third event including my wedding ceremony. I decided to go with light coral and sea green colors to bring out the ambiance of an ocean wedding. My bridesmaids all wore a custom made sarees with white bedazzled tops and a combination of green and coral saree draping. The groomsmen all wore turquoise pants, with white tops and champagne suspenders. I wore a sea-green Pakistani dress with gold embroidery and jewelry to match. The groom wore a matching sea-green sherwani. The combinations of the bridal party outfits looked beautiful for a beach wedding. Since the ceremony took place during the sunny day, we chose the Gazebo that overlooked the ocean for our location. I entered in a horse and carriage and proceeded to walk down the aisle with both my mother and father. During the ceremony, Zain and I poured our hearts out and shared intimate vows in front of all of our guests. It was a tear-worthy and beautiful moment.

Our last event included our reception which took place in the ballroom at the Hard Rock Hotel. We had decided to do a grand entrance and had indoor fireworks go off at our entrance, and then more fireworks as we got on the dance floor. We had speeches, by our dads, sisters, and best friends. We also include a fun surprise by adding a Michael Jackson and Drake Father Daughter mix. During my first dance, we had our first set of confetti blast on the dance floor. Our guests enjoyed this event as we added 2 more confetti blasts during the open dance floor which caught them all in surprise and enjoyment. We exited with the classic sparklers send-off and hopped on our horse and carriage to take us back to our room.

To end the events, we decided to have a boat party in which we rented and sailed the Caribbean seas in a private catamaran.   It was the perfect ending to the destination wedding, as we finally were able to let loose and enjoy our vacation with our best friends.

My overall review for my wedding is that it blew my expectations beyond words. Every detail I had planned for was beyond exceptional. Having a destination wedding was the best decision I had made. There was no ounce of stress in bones the second I entered the resort. Every single one of my guests enjoyed their time with us and have spoken so highly of their experience. The advice I would like to give to future brides that want to have a destination wedding is to enjoy their planning process, as when the time of your wedding is here, it flies by so quickly. Also, do not stress about the guests that can’t make it. Not everyone you invite will have the time, or expenses to make it. All that matters is that you have the support of the people who do decide to come, and it will be a great time. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
When shopping around for my wedding dresses, I knew I wanted something unique. Traditionally, Pakistani brides wear red on their wedding days. Since my wedding was going to take place on the beach, I wanted to wear more pastel colors for my ceremony. I went shopping in New Jersey and immediately fell in love with a custom sea-green bridal dress design that I thought would look perfect for a beach wedding. For my bridesmaid, I wanted to make sure their outfits were comfortable and light but also complimented my dress. I decided to create a custom sea green, and pink saree with embellished tops. All of my bridesmaids loved the design and the pictures looked amazing in front of the Caribbean sea.   

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My wedding planning experience was extremely fun, but a lot of worthwhile work. The best part of my experience planning a destination wedding was the site visit. I took a trip with my parents, maid of honor, and groom's parents to Hard Rock Hotel, Riviera Maya resort where I planned to hold all of my events. I was able to see and select all of my locations for the various events and actually envision my events put together. I spent an entire day meeting with my on-site coordinator and vendors to discuss the details for each event. I was able to be extremely productive and enjoy the resort which was harder to do during my wedding time. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests absolutely loved the vacation wedding they had attended. For many of my guests, this was the first destination wedding they had attended. The idea of having a wedding while on vacation was worthwhile for every single one of my guests. The Ceremony, in particular, was guests favorite. The romantic setting of exchanging vows on the beach set the tone of the entire wedding. it was such a beautiful moment that put smiles on everyone faces. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There is not a moment that I will forget about my wedding. During my reception, my father gave a heartfelt speech. That is one moment I will never forget. He talked about our relationship from when I was younger to now. That was the first time I had started to get emotional during the wedding. That exact moment is when it hit that I was going to start a new life, in a new city with my husband and my dad would be across states. We then had our first dance to "Tu Jo Mila" and ended with style by dancing to "In My Feelings" by Drake, and "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson. It was an amazing moment.

 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There are so many things I learned during the wedding process. The best advice I would like to give to Brides-To-Be is to listen to your gut. There are so many people that will give you their opinions and will tell you what they think you should do. At the end of the day, this is your day and you will remember it for the rest of your life, so do you want you want and don't please others if you are hesitant. Wear that dress you want, have the decor you like, and have that destination wedding if you want to, because your guests will love you no matter what and this it truly is a magical day just for you and your Hubby-To-Be.

Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Memories Photo Studio

It is no secret that along with fusion weddings, beachfront galas are on the top of our list. All weddings are special but having the roaring ocean as you witness on the most important day of your life, is a truly unique experience. Today, we head down to paradisiac Cancun to have a glimpse of what was Bhavina & Roshan's union, and as you probably expect, it was absolutely grand! Urvashi Mishra, Wedding & Event Planner tag-teamed with Alquimia Events' floral and decor wonders to turn The Now Jade Riviera Cancun into the fairy tale venue our couple had dreamed of. With a wedding pro combo like that, it was inevitable that the celebration was going to be fantastic. Sincerely, you will not believe your eyes the moment today's filmy, thanks to Memories Photo Studio, begins to play. All the watery scenery, romantic sunsets, and colorful dances make for today's feature, one not to miss. Wait until you check the stunning invitations The Royal Collection crafted for our newlyweds! Adorable! So, dolls, time to put the suntan lotion and glasses on because this film is fire!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Roshan and I met in 2015 on a dating app called Dil Mil. We chatted on the app for a few weeks and then decided to meet in person. At the time Roshan was working in Birmingham, AL and I were working in Greenville, SC. We decided to meet in Greenville at a cupcake place called Chocolate Moose. Meeting someone from an app, I was a bit skeptical but once we finally were face to face it was like we couldn't stop talking. We hit it off the moment we saw each other. I knew at that moment that Roshan was "the one" for me!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
As a child I always envisioned myself wearing a traditional red and gold color bridal lengha. Once I actually got to India and started shopping I realized there are tons of “traditional red and gold” colored lenghas. Going into bridal lengha shopping I knew I didn’t want anything with velvet material.  I tried on over 25 bridal lenghas before I was able to find “the one”. At first, I was hesitant to try on anything velvet or with heavy embroidery. But I gave it a shot anyway. As I was trying on the outfit knew it was “the one”.  
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of our wedding process was the resort site visits in Cancun, Mexico. We had an idea of the type of resort we wanted but actually visiting them was great. Getting to experience the different themes in the resorts, foods, hospitality, amenities, and venues really helped us put things into perspective for our events. Lastly, we really enjoyed watching a years worth of planning come together as planned and got to enjoy it with family and friends. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that plays in my head constantly is when my parents and grandmother (ba) walked me down the aisle the day of my wedding. Having my family walk me down the aisle was something I had always wanted during my wedding. Being able to finally embrace it and live it was amazing.  
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For all of the brides-to-be, I would say enjoy the wedding process. Planning an Indian wedding can be stressful, time-consuming and at times frustrating but enjoy all of the emotions. For myself, I was planning my wedding the day after I got proposed to. I enjoyed having my husband alongside of me the entire way. He was really involved and reminded me to embrace the moments. Lastly, I would say to be patient on the day of your wedding and just know that things may go unplanned but it’ll all work out at the end! 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I am a very simple person so dressing up more than casual for my wedding events was a little outside of my comfort zone. My jewelry I picked was antique bronze with a hit of maroon for my wedding day. I love tikas so I made sure to wear one at almost every event. My wedding bouquet was all hydrangeas which were my best friends favorite flowers. My outfits didn't have a particular theme to them I just wanted to make sure they were all different styles, colors, and embroideries. Lastly, I ended up finding my reception gown two nights before my flight back home from Bombay. I had a particular vision of how I wanted it to look and it had to be emerald in color (my favorite color). So finally I was able to find it and I was beyond happy!

 

Don't forget, every day a brand new wedding feature!
