Let's take a look at Neha & Nishad's big Indian wedding celebration. A match made in heaven! First of all, let's thank heaven for such talented work from Aventography Photo & Video Studios, who created this fantastic film. Let's begin this incredible journey at the Sterling Banquet Hall, where the Sangeet took place. This was a magical time were at the rhythm of music and choreographies both families gathered to celebrate before the big day. We are swooning over the beauty of Neha, who looked incredibly gorgeous amidst every ritual and ceremony. She trusted her fashion needs to the style crew of Fashion Face, who created a magnificent look for her. The magical wedding ceremony was hosted at the perfect outdoors of The Gallery. This was an emotive moment that made everyone sigh. Once the ceremony concluded, everyone participated at the reception in a stunningly decorated hall by Deco Art at the Red Oak Ballroom and had and epic night with delicious food and a piece of phenomenal well-selected music provided by Dhol Beat International. Go ahead and click on play to relive this great moment, ladies! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Met him in Kansas City when I was visiting.  The first weekend we spent together, we just connected and couldn't stop talking. It felt like I'd known him my entire life, I had this gut feeling he was "the one" but was afraid to admit it (never felt this way before about anyone). It was exciting and terrifying at the same time.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
10 letters, each hand delivered from the most special people in my life. Each letter contained 6 puzzle pieces. After receiving all 10 letter, I had to put together the 60 piece puzzle. The puzzle was a drawing (which he did himself) of my room and my brother's room. Leading me to the next clue, a lock hidden in my brother's room and a key hidden in my room. Inside were 3 scrolls,  sending me on a treasure hunt. First scroll had a bus ticket from Houston to Austin. Second scroll had a map with a note of where in Austin I would be staying but with who was a surprise. Third scroll was a plane ticket from Austin to Washington DC. Finally an uber drive to the national arboretum leading me to the most epic proposal by my greatest treasure, the most incredible man ever.
 
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 wanted an outdoor wedding, which could be hard to achieve in Houston, TX but we looked at many locations and decided to pick two venues, one for a smaller intimate wedding ceremony and something bigger for the reception.  Our overall experience was wonderful, at times it would become stressful but we reminded ourselves the only thing that matters was us getting married. We wanted a perfect marriage and having a perfect wedding was just a bonus.   
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wasn't able to go to India with my mom to pick out my own outfits. Instead my baby sister came to the rescue and went with my mom. I knew the color combination for each event and she worked ferociously to make my dreams come true. For the sangeet we wanted green and gold; wedding we wanted a velvet maroon and gold; reception sapphire blue and silver.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Most enjoyable part was doing it together. Most of the time brides make all the decision with little to no input from their grooms. I included my now husband, Nishad in every aspect to get his opinions and thoughts. He helped pick out our color combinations from the engagement to the reception. He was part of every weekly phone call with the coordinator. He came up with our hashtag. We even did our save the date cards together, I did the calligraphy and he did the artwork. Every step of the process we were a team.   
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The details of meaningful things. For example, at the wedding ceremony we had a program that illustrated the steps of a Hindu wedding in colorful artwork and explanations. At the reception, instead of having a traditional guest sign-in book we had our guest sign puzzle pieces.   
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Walking down the aisle, smiling ear to ear starring at my best friend because we are finally getting MARRIED!
 
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.
Our families are incredible. At the sangeet they did a lip sync battle (bride vs groom), surprise family performances and speeches. At the reception both sides of the families got together and did an epic skit with a slideshow filled with pictures in the background. Nishad and I also surprised everyone with multiple dance performances.   
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Relax, i wont say don't stress because wedding especially South Asian wedding with multiple events is stressful BUT when the day comes just enjoy every moment and have fun with it. You are marrying your best friend and soulmate, the rest doesnt matter. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My last name is Singh and Nishad's is Rai so our hashtag is "singhintherain". Our cake was of a couple under an umbrella surrounded with rain.

Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Mike Cantarell Films

A new filmy time is here! We are beginning this week by reliving Sonam & Herman's wedding celebrations. Thanks to the magnificent talent from Jonathan Cossu Photographer, we previously showed you details from this fantastic event. Today you can be fully-inspired by a tremendous and emotive film prepared by Mike Cantarell Films. We are heading to Cancun Mexico, where the Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa was selected by our lovebirds to host their wedding festivities. First of all, let me warn you that you might lose your breath away due to the magnificent look of our beautiful Maharani. She dazzled us during the entire festivities with the impeccable style provided by Alex Corbanezi Beauty, who took care of Sonam's beauty needs. As you can see in the video below, a piece of India was carried to the fantastic beaches of Cancun thanks to Shaadi Destinations, the expert Travel Concierge who assisted the couple during their stay. Every detail decorated by Grupo Gama reminds us of the Indian traditions just as Raja Herman stated: "Cancun finally sees the greatest Indian wedding of all times." Everyone had a blast weekend enjoying every single moment from this unforgettable wedding. Click play and relive this amazing bash. You can also visit the photo gallery here!

ow did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Herman on Halloween, in a bar in the middle of New York City, dressed up as a witch. He was dressed up in a Totoro onesie. For those of you that don't know, Totoro is a Japanese anime character that I just happened to watch religiously growing up. The rest is history.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Herman proposed to me on the beach in April 2018. He told me we were going to an engagement party, and while we were on the way he insisted on stopping off at a nearby beach to enjoy the view. When I got out of the car, I saw the most incredible set-up right there next to the water. There was champagne, a wooden arch with photos of all the memories we had made so far, flowers, and everything else I could've ever wanted. It was really something to see.
  
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part of the planning process was the chance to make the events something that was truly our style. We got married in Cancun, Mexico, so we already had a destination wedding going for us. We really wanted our guests to enjoy every part of the wedding because at the end of the day, it was a vacation for them too. We scheduled out events in a way that there was one free day for guests to do as they pleased during the 3 day event period. We scheduled a massive all-day pool party for the guests (and us!) to fully unwind and have fun in an informal setting. Our guests could not stop talking about it!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
A piece of advice that many married couples gave us before our big day was to not let anything get in the way of our happiness and our enjoyment of all the events. Being the bride and groom, it is inevitable to be stressed about things going wrong, but it's so important to remember that you are getting married to the love of your life and you should be present to fully enjoy that. You shouldn't worry about the things that can go wrong, because things will go wrong. You should go into your wedding week with the mindset that nothing will ruin this time for you both, and to make the most of every moment because it goes by so quick.
 
I hope you enjoyed this lovely destination wedding as much as I did! See ya, ladies.

Anaheim, CA Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Time for another filmy, ladies! In order to start the week with our batteries fully charged, we have Troopti & Agam's grand Indian wedding vision coming from Anaheim! Last Friday we had the honor of sharing with you all, their lovely picture gallery. In case you missed it, you can double-check it here! Today, however, we have the stunning visual treat thanks to Peter Nguyen Studio, who as we already know, delivers over the top mementos that transcend. Such talent! Troopti & Agam with their youth and vibrancy decided to tie the knot in all Maharani flair at The Sheraton Park Hotel at The Anaheim Resort and the place couldn't have looked more amazing. Truly a fairy tale bash, to say the least! But hold on! Guess who stole the show and our hearts? Maharani Troopti, of course! Her fashion sensibilities and makeup design by My Fair Bride just left me in awe! The colors chosen were truly the right way to go for a sober yet chic gala that I see quickly becoming a thing in the Maharani world. So, ladies, take a moment to relax and enjoy today's cinematic experience! Inspiration assured!

More to come, stay with us!

Kalamazoo, MI Indian Wedding by Shan Photography

This one has everything you expect out of a superb Indian wedding celebration, ladies! Heartfelt moments, stunning fashion choices, colors and lots and lots of family members! Today, we have the pleasure to share with your beautiful selves, a couple that just shines so brightly. They are Sonali & Hitesh, and in case you missed their gorgeous picture gallery we had a couple of days ago, you can always go back here. Today, it is time to get comfortable, call you bridesmaids, open a bottle of wine and sigh because today's filmy is oh so beautiful! The Radisson Plaza Hotel at Kalamazoo Center was looking at its very best to house the gala, and as we will see, the scenography was just dreamlike! And speaking of dreams, guess who was looking like a real-life princess? Maharani Sonali just left everyone stunned and Makeup By Karishma knows a thing or two about that! Look at the colors of her makeup! So chic! We are so loving this bash, ladies, as you can probably tell. So time to press play and get enchanted by today's filmy brought to us by Shan Photography! Ready, set, action!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We matched on the Dil Mil dating app and talked for two months before finally deciding to meet in person in Chicago. He was in residency in St. Louis and I was in medical school in Detroit, so that was a good halfway point for us. We had talked on the phone and FaceTimed several times before meeting in person so it felt like I already knew him. We toured the city and eventually ended up sitting by the lakeshore talking about our lives, our goals, and our feelings. Honestly, I think I knew then that he was the one. I knew this was something special.
 
More to the filminess of our first date can be found on our wedding website :)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The whole story is also on our wedding website! And the scavenger hunt proposal cards were recently shared on Dil Mil's Instagram (link below).
 
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.
The wedding planning process is without a doubt a very stressful experience, but it was completely worth it. We did not hire a wedding planner because my family and I love planning events and we wanted to go about this our own way. We searched for vendors in both the Chicago and Detroit areas because the wedding was in my hometown Kalamazoo which is halfway between the two. Now as I look back, I couldn't have asked for anyone better. Everything was perfect and exactly the way I dreamed/wanted it to be.
 
Our venue coordinators at the Radisson (Lindsay and Sam) were PHENOMENAL from the day we booked the Radisson Plaza Hotel until the very end. They didn't have much experience with Indian weddings, but we were excited and willing to learn. We met several times to go over details and timelines and they didn't miss a thing. They were so key in keeping all the events running smoothly.
 
For hair and makeup, Karishma Mehta of Makeup By Karishma was also a dream come true. I shared pictures and Pinterest posts of the looks I was going for, and she nailed it. Each event was totally unique and totally perfect. At first, I struggled with an Indian vs non-Indian makeup artist due to costs. In the end, I am glad I chose Karishma because she was able to set my jewelry and do my draping without much additional instruction, allowing my mother, sister, and other family members to also get ready in a timely fashion.
 
Last but certainly not the least, we had the BEST DJ in the industry. DJ Mixta (Micky Singh of Singh Innovations) served as our DJ and MC. We met several times over the course of the planning process to go over timing, entrances, intros, and song selections. He was our personal hype man and to this day our guests RAVE about his charisma and his energy. He worked closely with our venue coordinators to ensure things were running in a timely fashion.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I definitely wanted a more traditional red and gold look for the wedding. Red is such a bold color and just screams bridal, and I couldn't imagine getting married in anything else. I spent one day in Rajouri Gardens in Delhi, trying on different styles and designs, but nothing clicked. I eventually ended up at CTC mall which was recommended by a friend. Their selection was unbelievable. My bridal lehenga happened to be the last one I tried on at the end of the night, right as the store was closing. When they draped it on me and I twirled around, I didn't need to look any further. I just knew I had found the right one.
 
On the other hand, searching for my reception gown turned out to be more difficult that I imagined. I searched high and low through Delhi and Vadodara trying to find the perfect dress. I had always envisioned a "Starry Night" themed reception and wanted a dress to match. Ideally, it would be navy blue and silver. But with the color trends these days, that was almost impossible to find. After days and days, and dresses on dresses, I finally arrived at Sequinze. The shopkeepers were determined to make my dream come true and pulled out their very best. The gown I chose fit me perfectly. It was silver and sparkly, and could perfectly complement a navy blue backdrop. They paired it with silver jewelry set from their store, and I felt like a princess.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I'm a total filmy Bollywood girl at heart. I absolutely loved picking songs with special meanings for each part of every event and our DJ was key in playing them at the right times. I also loved choreographing some of the dance performances! Danced with my bridesmaids at the sangeet, choreographed the first dance with my husband, and put together a fun skit/dance for the bridal party to perform at the reception.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The DJ's constant energy and enthusiasm pumping up the crowd for performances, entrances, and the open dance floor.
 
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.
I have so many more thoughts and ideas, but it is impossible to share them all here. I would be happy to answer any specific questions by phone or email.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
