Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by Hakim's Studio

The middle day of the week comes to lighten your day with a beautiful story. My beautiful Maharanis, Mashal & Omair, are a young and in love couple who decided to join their life as one soul in one path. My dears, let me ask you. How great is it to initiate this new fantastic life along with friends and family? The groom chose to have a special night, Omair's Mehndi Night. A worth mentioning celebration that the groom hosted at the elegant Hilton Atlanta Northeast. This event was phenomenal! To create the perfect ambiance for everyone in the salon, Euphoria Event Decor made sure to put together a decoration full of colors and vibrant details. I am sure Omair felt blessed to see his guests celebrating his new journey along with him! There is nothing better than great music to have a memorable event. DJ Sonny Productions DSPAV played the most exquisite music all night long! Everyone danced and had an incredible time! Maharanis, we all can agree that a night to remember is a must! Our handsome groom knew this, so he decided to call Hakim's Studio. Their team captured and produced an excellent film to relive the happiness reflected on his face during his event. Maharanis, if you and your grooms want to get inspired, click the play button below and fall in love with this blockbuster film. This celebration is an ode to extravaganza you don't want to miss!

That is it for today, Maharanis! Come back tomorrow for more love and romantic stories.

Cinnaminson, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by PhotosMadeEz

My lovely Maharanis, Wednesday is here, and with it, a film that will bring back sweet memories from a magnificent event, Claire & Ritam's wedding. A match made in heaven! As you may recall, this lovely couple decided to say I do in a breathtaking venue, The Merion. A place where their elegant décor makes every event feels like royalty. Elegant Events Planning & Design put together the most outstanding ambiance to ensure every guest felt like they were in a fairy tale. Maharanis, every detail went beyond ideal thanks to House of Catherine and Petals Lane. These two teams embellished the salon with unique details, beautiful flowers, and spectacular colors. Trust me, Claire & Ritam's happiness is more than noticeable! I think we all can agree that this event was remarkable! Why don't we talk about the beauty of our gorgeous Claire? LadyChebli Beauty Bar did the makeup for our Maharani, and she looked natural yet elegant, classy yet sweet. She was just stunning! Remember, with delicate makeup comes a magnificent gown. Mari Mi Bridal knows this, and their priority is to create an experience and make you say "I do" to the perfect dress, so they did with Claire's wedding gown! But that is not all my queens; Mehndikalogie designed an exclusive Mehndi art that took everyone's attention to the lovely bride! You know dancing at a wedding is a must-do! DJ Sunny Entertainment got everyone to the dancefloor. I am sure this was a night to remember! And the best news is here! PhotosMadeEz captured every detail of this enchanting celebration, along with the love, happiness, and these two beautiful souls getting together for life! They have shared the blockbuster film below for our delight. Click the play button, and get ready to relive this fairytale. 

That is all for today, my favorite Maharanis! See you tomorrow for another love story!

Dallas, TX Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Happy Wednesday, Maharanis! The filmy time of the week is here, and it comes packed with tons of beauty, emotions, and traditional flair. Today, we have all the details surrounding Nandita & Aman's charming wedding and believe us, this is one celebration you are going to enjoy. So, without further ado, let's jump right into it! This love journey began most vibrantly and colorfully with a joyful Sangeet, which was the perfect preamble for all the amazingness that was about to come. For the big wedding day, Nandita & Aman decided to bring Peter Nguyen Studio on board. And oh boy, what a great decision it was! This fantastic studio showed all their talent and expertise, capturing every detail of the wedding events with so much delicacy that we couldn't stop seeing the blockbuster film below. The wedding ceremony officiated at the Live! By Loews was a cornucopia of beauty and flair thanks to Prashe Decor, who transformed this venue's halls into an exquisite setting, more than suitable for this solemn celebration. The traditional linens wrapped around the room and the gorgeous floral arrangements created the perfect backdrop for these lovebirds to profess their love and commitment to each other. Still, it was our gorgeous Nandita who stole all the show! She donned a  fashionable gown by Sabyasachi, draped and tied by Elegant Saree Draping. But that is not all! Ms Painted Lady complemented Nandita's dreamy look with fabulous hair and makeup designs that made her look like a goddess. And we absolutely loved this winning combo! If you can't get enough of this couple, make sure to hit the play icon below. You will be amazed!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was the fall of 2012 and when I was a freshman and Aman a sophomore at Duke. We literally locked eyes for the first time and met on a dance floor at a mixer. But it wasn't until the summer of 2013 when we started spending more time together watching Bollywood movies (Ye Jawaani Hai Deewani), taking summer classes at Duke, and getting to know each other. After a summer filled with endless conversations, sharing our favorite Hindi songs, and nervous laughter, Aman asked me on our first official date with a pint of Ben and Jerry's ice cream and a post-it-note with "will you be my girlfriend" attached on top.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Here is a youtube link to our proposal flash mob!

https://youtu.be/nncemfEMA7M

On August 29th, 2019 the two officially had six years of unforgettable memories with each other under their belts. One August afternoon, Nandita was getting ready for what she thought was a family friend's baby shower when the doorbell began ringing. When she came downstairs, she heard music playing at the door and saw her little nephew Neeraj peeking out the front window saying "Aman Uncle outside." When she opened the door, she saw not just Aman but also her Didi, Jijaji, Daddy, Namita, Ritu Aunty and Sanjay Uncle ALL outside. Confused, everyone came inside and started taking family pictures (at this point, Nandita wasn't sure if the proposal had already happened and she missed it, but needless to say there were many more surprises in store). Aman soon handed her an envelope with a clue that led them to a piano at Hotel Zaza where he played and sang "Pehla Nasha" for me. For their entire six year relationship Nandita used to complain that Aman was holding out on her because he would never let her hear him sing or play the piano, he always said "he was waiting for the right time." A few more stops for lunch and "fake-out proposals" during the day they arrived at her sister's house where he said she could change for dinner. However, when she walked inside she realized he was proposing right then and there in the backyard. He had an empty pint of Ben and Jerry's with the ring inside and a post it-note on top asking her to marry him, just like his first ask for her to be his girlfriend. After getting down on one knee, he got up and immediately began what she thought was an awkward "solo" dance to You are my Soniya. Within moments of him starting, suddenly 40 of their closest childhood, college, medical school and family friends rushed in to flash-mob the rest of the song. She has never been more stunned or overwhelmed and was quite literally floored by how much love they are surrounded by with their village!

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.
Pandemic shopping was difficult, growing up I always imagined going to India with my mom and sister to shop for my bridal outfits. Luckily my sister found Meha Bhargava from Styl_Inc in India who runs a personal shopping service. Without her and her team, we wouldn't have been able to get 20 custom bridesmaids sarees, 18 groomsmen outfits, and our entire family outfitted from head to toe along with all of our wedding gifts.

Without a single in person fitting, Meha and her team made sure each of my wedding outfits arrived on time and fit me perfectly. This wedding would not have happened without her!

Our wedding planning experience started in August 2019, a few months before the pandemic hit. After an unexpected hiccup with the first planner we hired we were so so blessed that Hala Snyder (Events by Hala) decided to step back into wedding planning just for our family. She planned my sister's wedding 8 years ago but had since stepped away from wedding planning. She swooped in right before the pandemic and made sure to find us the best vendors in the game. We chose the new venue, Live! By Loewe's in Arlington Texas because we wanted a hotel with a newer feel and a lot of energy -- with the AT&T stadium and an array of restaurants the venue was perfect for our wedding weekend. Jill from Live! By Loewes was also the most amazing point of contact and made sure all of our event details were seamless. Jill and Hala made sure my dream of Aman arriving in on an elephant for the baraat came true. From extensively mapping out the elephant's route to weighing the bridge the elephant would walk over, they planned out every detail! We worked with Alex from Ms Painted Lady for Hair and Makeup and from providing the most flawless makeup for my family and I, to creating hair styles based off of my descriptions alone, to being just a wonderful, hard working and amazing person she and her team made the weekend perfect and got over 20 ladies ready throughout the weekend. We were lucky to work with Prashe for our decor -- she took exactly what I described and envisioned and made it come to life each night of our wedding events. We loved our DJs from Desi Junction, they made sure our dance floor was hard to leave and from night to night everyone was there till the lights went up. DJ Channi never lost energy and is someone who made our wedding so memorable! Most importantly, our Photo and Video Team (Peter Nguyen Luxury Weddings) was a dream. They were there all week, the kindest team, the most amazing talent and took what my family and I requested (full coverage of our family and all guests) to heart and made sure they covered every aspect of our wedding. The same day edit is also amazing and captured our week so perfectly. I cannot express how lucky we are that Peter and his team came highly recommended to us by our family friends and he is definitely responsible for capturing our memories in a beautiful way.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always grew up wanting to wear Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra for my wedding events. When it came time to pick my bridal outfit, I decided Sabysachi for their classic pink and red bridal attire. Due to COVID, their design house was unable to produce several of their lehenga designs. Despite a limited range in choices, I fell in love with a hot pink Nayantra lehenga and despite only seeing it virtually over Facetime, I trusted their designs would be stunning in person and I was so happy I was right.
For my reception outfit, I knew Manish Malhotra would be perfect. His designs are glamorous and intricate all at once. The lehenga I picked was one I had flagged from one of his earlier collections (it caught my eye well before I was engaged!). Their team was so lovely to work with and despite the pandemic, they were so happy to offer any design I found of theirs to produce. From fitting to customization, they were precise and perfect. The outfit arrived and was even more stunning in person.
Finally, for my Mehndi outfit, I always knew I wanted to wear something vibrant, bright and different than my other more classic styles. Aisha Rao seemed perfect and her royal blue designs with brightly embroidered skirts and blouses were exactly what I envisioned. Her team was also wonderful and prompt, they allowed us to customize everything from the blouse design to color and made sure everything arrived promptly! 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was the time I was able to spend with my family dreaming up every detail. From start to finish, my Mom, Dad, Didi and Jijaji wanted to make this the wedding of my dreams and if I imagined it they made it happen. Most importantly, despite the stress of the pandemic, my family and Aman made sure I was smiling and laughing through the entire wedding planning process.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the traditional aspects of the wedding -- from our Benarasi Mehndi at our Didi and Jijaji's house, to our elephant at the baraat, to the array of dances our friends and family put together for each and every event, to our midnight ceremony, we loved sharing our culture and excitement with all of our guests. Everyone also loved the chance to finally dance on a dance floor together again and we cannot thank our friends -- all amazing dancers -- for bringing so much energy. Personally, I also think everyone loved seeing Aman stay on his feet throughout the week dancing the nights away (he's definitely the dancer out of the two of us!)

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The baraat was an amazing experience. I got to watch the baraat from a balcony facing the bridge route and wave to Aman as he came in on the elephant. I also got to see all of our incoming guests on both sides and enjoyed seeing the baraatis dance. There was so much energy and after an incredibly tough year for so many it was so perfect seeing so many of our loved ones together again celebrating with us.

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 Mehndi was our kickoff event hosted at my Didi and Jijaji (Natasha and Rajiv Shenoy's) residence. The two of them transformed their home into a bright, completely decked out venue complete with a bangle "market," draped tents, rickshaws, fire dancers, a dessert truck and so much more. Their vendors included Lawson Rentals, Fox electric & Renee's Lighting company (who came in clutch with a completely new lighting system the night before the Mehndi when a last minute tent was installed for rain precaution!) Prashe, Celebration catering, Mehnaz Mehndi Artists, Desi Junction, and Elite Valet.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Take advantage of the fact that all of your loved ones are under one roof for your wedding day! There is no bigger joy than getting to constantly turn around and see another person who is so filled with love and excitement for you and your husband to be on your wedding day!

Don't forget to join us tomorrow for a new love story!

Happy Wednesday, darlings! The film time of the week is here, and we are more than excited to share it with you. So get ready to enjoy it! Today, Lightyear Studio is taking us on a visual journey through all the lovely moments surrounding Ami & Min's wedding events. If the name of this lovely couple sounds familiar, it is because we already featured their wedding through this jaw-dropping gallery also captured by Lightyear Studio. Needless to say that this event was spectacular, and we couldn't wait to have a second chance to enjoy all the emotional scenes and the sweet and charming moments surrounding this celebration of love! We loved the on-point decor that set the mood for the different ceremonies hosted at the Valley Regency, as everything was beautiful beyond words! But there is no surprise here as LAX States was the mastermind behind such fantastic scenery. And after seeing the final result, there is no wonder why they are well-known for transforming venues into magical places, making every couple's dreams come true. And talking about dreams that come true, what about the striking look of our gorgeous Maharani, after being pampered by Maliha Khan Makeup. It was to die for! If you want to check more of this lovely couple, hit play and rejoice with all the amazingness of Ami & Min's wedding celebration. We are sure you are going to love it so much!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in college. We started dating in 2011. It was hard for me to think about forever so it took about 6 years for me to be comfortable with the idea of marriage.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I make surprises very difficult and figured out what his plan was going to be so he double crossed me and proposed the weekend before in jersey city on the waterfront with our dog and a book mark (that he slipped into the current book I was reading with the ring tied to it) saying we’re 7 chapters in and I love where this story is going... will you marry me?
 
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.
Honestly I did not want a huge wedding but my parents did. I’m a big proponent of doing things right or not doing it at all. Since I’ve never really dreamed of a huge wedding or any particular details I just wanted to make sure we hired professionals that I could trust to make the big decisions for me. I can’t say enough amazing things about our vendors. Valley regency has been in the business for a long time and knows how to throw a beautiful party. Lax states (Nisha) is truly an artist. She took something I had no interest in (the decor) and made it into a theme that actually felt like home. Maliha Khan is the sweetest and most talented makeup artist - I’m not a makeup expert and I needed someone who would take the outfit and my face into consideration and she did just that. I feel like I didn’t have to make many big decisions because my vendors were amazing.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I got married in November so it had to be long. For the ceremony I wanted some white in it. I found a beautiful gold lengha in India and they switched out the gold satin for white. I was happy. I bought my reception dress from India too but then I realized I didn’t love it so I bought another gown from a local NYC boutique.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Small details that I wanted to incorporate like a table to represent our love for our dog Belle, a memorial table, signs for the photobooth, pictures of us
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The most compliments I received were probably about the details I mentioned above and the food.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Before the reception we had a mini cocktail hour in the bridal suite and I actually got to spend a little time with my best friends and family.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Vendors can make or break your wedding. Choose carefully but then let the professionals do their job.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Just incase you were wondering my husband is of Korean decent. He has a small family and did not have any Korean traditions that were important to them but his parents were great sports during the events.

We hope you've enjoyed today's film as much as we did. See you tomorrow for more!
