Cinnaminson, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Welcome back, beautiful ladies! There is no better way to begin this phenomenal day with a flourish, than taking a peek at a lovely fusion wedding captured by the talented team from Lightyear Studio. Today we are heading down to Cinnaminson, NJ, to enjoy a spectacular event that will take your breath away. Amanda & Amit's fusion wedding is one you don't want to miss, so get ready to be fully inspired! The exclusive The Merion became the nest of this magical love story, and we can't think of a more perfect setting for these lovebirds to join their lives in marriage. The big glass dome, the architecture of the hall, and the delightful colors created a more than perfect setting for these lovebirds to sworn their eternal love. If you are wondering who orchestrated this lovely event, let me tell you that Simply Sapphire Events took care of planning and trimming every detail of this ceremony. And, Nirali Decor crafted an enchanting Mandap that we loved so much! Undoubtedly, this was the dreamy ceremony Amanda & Amit always wanted! Music, dancing, chatting, and of course, the delicious food served by Chand Palace, were the special ingredients for this magical night! You can relive this event by visiting this fantastic gallery. But if this is not enough, you can click the play icon below to enjoy a cinematographic delight. Both are creations from Lightyear Studio, so you know that amazingness and grandeur are guaranteed! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Amit in undergrad when we both had the same microeconomics class. We sat next to each other and found out we were both applying to pharmacy school. It wasn't until we were in our third year of pharmacy school that we connected. We were in the same rotation and bonded over a lively discussion of the NBA finals. Our relationship blossomed from there and we soon became inseparable. He constantly makes me laugh and never fails to put a smile on my face. That's how I knew he was "the one." I realized how happy he makes me and couldn't imagine finding a better partner.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Amit proposed to me on my 29th birthday. I did not think much of the day since I knew in advance I would have to work a late shift and we went out to brunch to celebrate. I called him on my way home after my shift and he told me he was making dinner. I thought he sounded a bit frantic and strange, but attributed that to him trying to finish cooking. When I walked up to our apartment door, I noticed that all the lights were off and there was a glow coming from the window. I told myself not to get too excited and figured he set up a candlelight dinner. I opened the door to find candles lit all over the apartment and him on one knee, holding up the ring in its box. We then celebrated our engagement in Philadelphia at my favorite restaurant.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since we had an Indian American wedding, I wore a bridal lengha in the morning and a wedding dress in the evening. I asked Amit's parents if they would like me to wear the traditional red color, but they told me to pick any color I wanted. I had no idea what color to choose and most of my wardrobe is black! I went shopping in Edison and fell in love with a bridal lengha that had beautiful stonework and beading, but the sample dress was in yellow. I looked at the swatches and decided on royal blue. For my wedding dress, I went to Kleinfeld determined that I would find an A line gown with straps and a low back. Of course that did not happen. I soon realized that I did not like A line and after stepping out of my comfort zone, tried on different styles. I was walking back to the fitting room, when a dress caught my eye. It was not like anything I originally described and thought I wanted. I tried it on and knew it was the one. My consultant had me try on more dresses just to make sure. When she saw that the rest of the dresses did not have the same effect on me, she asked if I wanted to put on the dress I loved. I could not wait to get back into it!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I was really touched by my sister's speech at my wedding. She was my maid of honor and told me early on that she "did not give speeches." While I knew she was half joking, I wasn't sure what to expect. She gave the first speech that night and I was so touched by what she said that I cried. I tried to hold back tears (for fear of ruining my makeup!) when she opened up and described our relationship and what I meant to her. Her speech was heartfelt and genuine- perfect in every way. She gave me a copy of her speech after the wedding, which I intend to frame.

If you were inspired today, stick around, we have tons of inspiration prepared for you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband on Dil Mil. He was living in NY at the time and we matched and talked for a bit and the conversation died down. Then months later we reconnected and started talking again. He flew down to Dallas to see me and it’s been history since.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
So every time he came to Dallas he took me to a random restaurant for date night. He never told me where we were going but he would always tell me how to dress. In October 2018 he told me he’s going to take me to a fancy restaurant and he told me to dress up. I’m extra so he didn’t have to tell me twice. I texted my friend Chippi a dress that I found and she straight up said it’s ugly. She made me change into something else. You’d think I would have some idea now but nope. So I finally wore the outfit chippi agreed on. He took me to reunion tower and after dinner he told me let’s go up and see the view. I was like no I don’t want to mess up my hair but he insisted that we do. Me being the clueless person I am was annoyed and said ok fine but I would be mad if I messed up my hair. We went up there and when he went down on one knee I said omg yes and tried to snatch the ring from him. I freaked out for sure and before he could ask I kept saying yes. He finally asked in between my screaming and my brother, his sister and her husband, my best friend, Prem’s best friend and his wife, my cousins and most of my friends flew in to surprise me. I was in so much shock I didn’t even know what was going on for a while. When I finally came to my senses I freaked out again because everyone was there. It was a surprise proposal for sure. He did good
 
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 was the most stressful part. I had a great planner and if it wasn’t for Shelley I would’ve been lost. All my vendors were so great and I can’t say enough things about them. I knew Riz before the wedding and one of the first people I called was Riz and he was super helpful. For makeup I was super picky and I went with Ishnae and omg they’re the sweetest people you’ll meet. They book up so quick and I literally booked them before I booked my venue. For decor we went with alpha and I was blown away when I walked into my reception hall because they went above and beyond. We picked Vinnie from VEK photo for photos and he’s very well known and he helped us get our videographer Ali from Aria. Ali and Vinnie are definitely considered the A team.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for wedding shopping. I got a South Indian Saree for the wedding and that was all my mom. She helped me pick it out. The reception lehnga was a huge mess since I picked it out from India. I got it from India but after I got back home I hated it. A few weeks before the wedding I found this Instagram page named mayasboutique and I got in touch with the owner Jenny and she helped me pick out my reception lehnga. It was so pretty and Jenny was super helpful. I wanted to stay away from red for reception but this lehnga was so pretty I ended up wearing red. I also ended up getting my mehndi outfit from her. My whole decor was peach and gold. The bridesmaids wore peach lehnga and the groomsmen wore peach tie and socks.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part definitely have to be shopping. I had so much fun picking out outfits for the bridesmaids. The bridesmaids had two outfits. They wore traditional kasavu Saree and jewelry for the ceremony and for reception they switched to a lehnga. I custom made the lehnga in India and it was the best. I picked out the fabric and stitched the outfits for them. I also picked out their jewelry and it was honestly so much fun. For ceremony the groomsmen wore peach kurta with mundu and they all looked super traditional and for reception they wore a suit that my husband picked out. We had our little ring beaters wear matching mundu and kurta with the groomsmen which was so cute. The junior bridesmaids wore red outfit to match with the bridesmaids blouse in the morning. Dressing up the bridal party was my most favorite part about the wedding for sure.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
DJ! Everyone loved Riz and Freddy. They kept the crowd entertained all night. Prem’s friends from NY raved about how great the DJ was. Everyone raved about the food too. My family friend Sunny uncle from India garden catered and everyone kept saying how great the food was. I’ve known sunny uncle since I was a kid and he went above and beyond for us. Also, we had a taco truck to end the night and everyone kept saying how that was something different they’ve never seen before.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The actual ceremony part for sure. It was something special for both of us and we loved how traditional it was. Prem wrote me a letter and I didn’t expect to cry so much as I did. It was so sweet and I definitely messed up my makeup.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress. Everything would be ok. Nobody is going to remember the small details and everyone is going to remember how happy you were. Hire a planner!! Don’t cut cost on that please. I was happy because the day of my wedding because I knew “Shelley got it”
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I’m a huge fan of Disney movies. When we started dating we used to love watching beauty and the beast. I told my henna artist Samira who is very very talented that I love the movie. She actually drew beauty and the beast on my henna. Everyone who saw it was amazed by how perfect it was.

Please visit us tomorrow, we have a great moment prepared just for you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Harsh and I met at Quinnipiac University during a South Asian Society meeting. My favorite part of how we met is that we really just started as friends, he was my best friend for while before we recognized how we felt about each other. To date, he is the one person I can always count on and knows exactly how to talk me through any situation (even when I was freaking out about wedding planning). I suppose I knew he was the one when I felt comfortable being my weirdo self around him. That comfort level is everything.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Harsh and I had done long distance for a few years so we always met at the same spot in Hoboken every Friday after work. Those were the best Fridays, we'd grab food, get some dessert, and then just sit by the water and watch the beautiful city skyline. So, when Harsh proposed, we were watching the same city skyline right before grabbing a bite to eat. Unfortunately, it was December and negative eleven degrees. But, fortunately, there wasn't a single person in sight and we had that perfect little moment all to ourselves. Afterwards, we grabbed a bite to eat at our favorite pizza place in Hoboken, Grimaldi's, and then went to my house where our whole family was waiting to celebrate with us. 

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 started with the big things like venues, catering, photography/videography, and decor first. Then moved into DJ, hair/makeup, mehndi, and outfits. I did a ton of research, followed a lot of different vendors on Instagram to get a feel of their work, and really made sure I knew the market/pricing. I had schedules for each day, informed my vendors and family of those schedules, and had every detail planned out of the events. Honestly, it was all so so worth it. I was shocked we stayed on schedule and that we were even able to enjoy the food at our own wedding! I really trusted the vendors we chose, they produced great quality work and were very efficient so my overall experience was really great. Everyone was so great about timing and about doing everything they could to make our wedding as special as possible. Would highly recommend all of the vendors we selected.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Our wedding was in the Fall so I really wanted to embrace some Fall colors. So, I chose maroon and blush pink for the wedding outfit, mustard yellow for the Sangeet, and mauve for the reception. I LOVED all of my outfits. I had zero time to go to India for them so I followed a lot of different vendors on Instagram and that's where I found Walia Jones. They made it SO easy for me and my outfits were custom made so beautifully thanks to them. I had a vision and they helped bring it to life. They completed the outfits and shipped everything very quickly so I definitely appreciated that. In general, I knew what I wanted, the style, the colors, and looked through a ton of pictures to customize the outfits how I wanted them. Loved my experience with Walia Jones and would highly recommend!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
To be truthful, I didn't enjoy the planning. It was stressful, tedious, and took up every weekend until the day of the wedding. However, the actual wedding weekend, I was the most relaxed I had been in months because all that planning and stress was finally paying off. My favorite part was starting the events and watching everyone enjoy something I knew I put a lot of work into. Other than that, the food tasting hands down was my other favorite part lol, Chand Palace did an excellent job with the taste and presentation. Very easy to work with them and they make some quality food.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The outdoor scenery at Brooklake Country Club. I think our guests took as many pictures outside in front of the golf course as we did. That view is so breathtaking and the day of the wedding was cloudy but the temperature was perfect. Since it was cloudy, our pictures came out perfect. Other than that, I think they enjoyed the food and DJ a lot.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
One thing I really wanted to make sure was special and done well was my mehndi. I wanted a certain symbol incorporated in it because it's something that means a lot to both me and Harsh. When Harsh and I first started dating, he gave me a necklace with a dopamine molecule and it was my favorite gift from him because I felt that he truly understood how much I love nerdy things like that. I love that I was able to incorporate the dopamine molecule into my mehndi. It was something we shared years ago and Mehndikalogie was able to make it part of my wedding day - it meant a lot!

So don't think twice and click the play icon below! You will love every single part of it! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mike and I were set up by a mutual friend at school (University of Delaware) almost 10 years ago. We started dating my senior year and then I moved to NYC while Mike stayed in Delaware to complete his master's degree - we were long distance for 2 years and the second Mike moved to NYC, I knew I couldn't imagine being apart from him again!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Mike picked me up from work to grab a drink before we were going to a Kygo concert. Instead of grabbing a drink first we went for a stroll where he proposed in Battery Park. I found out later he was supposed to propose the day after in Central Park where we had one of our first real dates but once he found it was going rain he knew there was no chance of getting me to the park without being suspicious. He also planned a surprise party for our immediate family and our closest friends at Tavern on the Green in Central Park.
 
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 had such wonderful vendors that really supported us in building our dream wedding! When we went to our first appointment with Glamorous Events with my PowerPoint presentation of inspiration for the decor I wanted for all three events, instead of thinking I was crazy they executed it perfectly. Our DJ from BWD events helped us create the perfect playlist to balance Mike's favorite EDM songs with my 90's reggaeton requests all while simultaneously catering to our Punjabi and Jewish guests. Salwa Photography and Unique Visions captured all our favorite moments while making us feel so comfortable with cameras next to us in our most intimate wedding moments. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Mike and I had a #hinjewwedding, instead of blending our Hindu and Jewish wedding ceremonies we had both! So I went the traditional route for both ceremonies; I wore a red lengha for our Hindu ceremony on Friday and a white wedding dress for our Jewish wedding on Saturday.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Being engaged! Realizing we were planning OUR wedding, we truly felt the excitement as we made the wedding of our dreams come to life!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We are still so flattered by all of our guest's compliments - they loved our decor at the Sangeet - we went for traditional bright India - lots of colors, Mendhi stations, a rickshaw to take pictures with, a Bazaar full of bangles and purses. For the Hindu wedding - I could not hear more about how Mike's Baraat and how amazing he looked like an Indian groom on a horse and his dance moves! For the Jewish ceremony and reception our guests loved everything about our venue, Flowerfield, the grounds were stunning and they were blown away by their catering!
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Mike and I snuck out of our reception and took a moment to ourselves to walk outside and admire the party from afar and it was so special to take that minute for just us and to stand back and appreciate all of our friends and family on the dance floor celebrating us!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to enjoy being engaged - it all goes by so quickly, it is so easy to get stressed and caught up with the planning process. Mike and I planned specific moments during the process that was just for us - whether it was going to a vendor appointment alone, booking a spa day, or just going for a picnic in Central Park. It is important to remember you are not just planning a wedding, you are getting married!
 
Wait to see what we have prepared for your Friday, so stick around!
