Happy Wednesday, Maharanis! We hope you are ready to enjoy a new wedding film, because today's celebration of love is not just elegant but truly faithful to traditional Pakistani weddings, and we are sure that you won't want to miss it. So let's not wait any longer and enjoy all the mesmerizing details of Hajira & Shayan's wedding. Being this a life-changing event, it is no surprise that our young couple wanted to immortalize all the moments surrounding this day. That is why they decided to bring Maria Fasih Studios to capture ever scene of the Nikkah ceremony hosted at the Diyanet Center. For this long-awaited day, our gorgeous Maharani looked breathtaking thanks to the exquisite makeup and hairstyle designed by Mahwish Ali Beauty. The nude colors and the classy hairstyle enhanced our lovely bride's innate beauty and complemented the gorgeous outfit from Embellished By Sadaf Amir's collection! But that is not all. To crown this marvelous look, Hajira got a fabulous Mehndi outlined by Naseem. COVID could not stop Hajira & Shayan to start their everlasting love story in such a charming and romantic way, and we have no words to express how happy we are for them. If you want to unveil all the beauty of this wedding, click play and get ready to be amazed!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Very early in our relationship he would always say "I'm going to marry you". When he told me his parents are going to come over for my hand I laughed because I loved his persistent pursuit of me despite me playing hard to get (even though I was head over heels myself). It is so nice to be with someone who knows exactly what he wants from day one and is not afraid of the next step. So after him and his parents asked for my hand things moved quickly and we started ring shopping. Let me tell you! My husband is the most trendy fashion forward man I know! He learned everything there is to know about diamonds and had such a strong opinion on the design. He wanted a solitaire and I was all about the details like a halo. We came up with a ring design we both loved and met in the middle with a solitaire look with a micropavé band. He was so involved in the process and cared so much about the design it was so sweet. I knew he had the ring but I wasn’t sure of when he would do it. I have always been the type of girl to want an intimate proposal with no one but my significant other. When COVID hit I expected there to be no detailed proposal. Little did I know that when he spontaneously visited me for my birthday weekend he would do it then! Since options were limited due to lockdown he decided to do it at home and make it super sentimental. The proposal made me cry because it was so well thought out and detailed! He set up a HUGE rose petal heart in my basement with a rose petal/candle walkway leading up to it. He bought a helium tank and filled heart balloons to line up the walkway. By the floral heart there was a board that said "Will you marry me?" with a book titled "Dream Come True" in which he laminated/pasted little details he saved from our relationship over time. I could not believe this guy saved some of the things that he did! He had his first boarding pass from his first visit to me, my first boarding pass to visit him, a rose petal from the first flowers he gave me, a piece of the gift bag from our first valentines day, first theme park entrance tickets, etc. He had worked on this book for 5 months before proposing to me with it. I could not stop myself from tears! He always jokes that I didn't even care about the ring, I was all over the book. I am so happy I get to hold onto that book and cherish it forever.

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.
Truth be told I grew up in the DMV area and have known where I would have my wedding and who I would use as my vendors for a long time! Due to COVID we ended up doing a mayoun hosted by my uncle/aunt at their house and a nikkah at my house for now. Stay tuned for the Mehndi and Reception details in Virginia and San Francisco next year (iA, God willing)!

So for now, venue for the Nikkah was my house which ended up being the best thing ever! There is something about leaving from your house as a bride with your husband that is so so soooo special, which I may have missed out on if it had not been for COVID (silver lining of the pandemic).

Photography/Videography: None other than Maria Fasih. This decision was one I didn't even have to think about. I met Maria at my best friend's wedding. As the maid of honor at her wedding I worked closely with her vendors including Maria. In just one night we got so close! I told her right then and there that she would cover my wedding and she has accommodated me no matter how many times I had changed the dates. She has become a lifelong friend who is super talented and will drop everything for her clients. I cannot wait for future shoots with her. Her work speaks for itself but when you meet her, you will understand that her work ethic and personality is unmatched.

Hair & Makeup: Mahwish Ali Beauty. There are so many talented hair and makeup artists that I have tried in the area that I love for their own unique styles. However, when it came down to my mayoun and nikkah I knew Mahwish was the one who could give me my "ideal" looks for both events. She is so talented and super sweet! Loved everything about my mayoun and nikkah look! The amount of detail and effort she puts into her work really shows! I fell in love with my looks as soon as I saw myself in the mirror but when my husband was obsessed with both my looks I knew Mahwish hit the nail on the head.

Outfits: Embellished By Sadaf Amir. Not only is she basically family she is a GREAT designer. I have known her for years and her work is nothing short of perfect. I basically told her my vision for my mayoun and nikkah outfits and with her own expertise she elevated those outfits to the next level. She always does an amazing job with all my clothes so I knew she had to be a part of my wedding looks. She is not just a designer who will talk business with you, she will go the extra mile to keep you happy. She dealt with all my tantrums and I will forever be grateful for her.

Decor: Sarah Khan Event Styling. Where do I start with them? There aren't enough nice words I can say about Sarah Khan and her team. From even before the pandemic when we were planning my events they had been sorting through ideas and working so hard for my dream wedding. When the pandemic hit they were honestly not just decorators but also a listening ear. I will never forget all the venting sessions I had with them and how cooperative they were with all my changing plans. They gave me a more ideal wedding than I could have had in a huge venue. I mean how did they turn my house into something out of a fairytale?! Until this day the decor is being talked about and people keep asking me who did it! Ahhh, I still look back at the pictures and obsess over the details!

Mehndi/Henna: Naseem for my BEAUTIFUL mehndi. She spent hours on my hands and feet with impeccable detail and the stain was beyond beautiful. She is so talented and super sweet. I will never get my mehndi done by anyone else! LOVE her work!

Desserts: Fatima for the AMAZING cake, macarons, cake pops, and cookies. Not only were they soooo pretty they tasted so good too! Super talented and fun to work with. I have gotten desserts from her in the past too and each time she exceeds my expectations!

Extra Details: Saher for the super cute "Qubool Hai" sign and chocolate bar favors. The amount of detail and talent in her work really shows and she is so down to earth and sweet on top of that! I have ordered her favors and art work many times and will continue to do so!

Thank you to ALL our vendors for making our events even better than what they would have been pre-pandemic. Their loyalty to their clients really showed during such an uncertain time. So thankful for the life long friendships we made along the way. We could not have asked for a better team!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of planning for our wedding was the time we spent together. For most couples wedding planning leads to stress and added tension but for us it was a little different. Sure, there were days where I was being a complete bridezilla but I cannot say enough good things about my husband. He was a true gem throughout it all. He lightened up every situation and made me laugh. I think if the groom is just as involved in the planning as the bride then the memories you make are unforgettable. If you truly love each other, wedding planning should bring you closer together.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly I try to remember how I felt in each moment to relive that day in my head. However, there are TWO very important moments that I will NEVER forget. One is when we were doing our photoshoot on the HOTTEST day of the summer my husband was blowing air on me, fixing my outfit, fixing my hair, and constantly making sure I am hydrated. In those moments he didn't care that he was also burning hot, he was just worried about me. Reminded me of why I fell in love with him. Two is during/after the Rukhsati (send off) he held my hand and told me "I know how much you mean to your whole family and I can't even imagine one day giving our daughter to someone else to take away to the other side of the country...but I promise to always try to fill your dad's shoes by loving and cherishing you" That moment made me more emotional than the actual Rukhsati because here I was worried about having my dream wedding when in reality none of that matters when you have the dream partner, the #DreamBaig if you will haha!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy every moment because it flies by so quickly! I was the type of bride to worry about each and every detail but luckily my husband is very good at making me want to live in the moment. He joked around and made me laugh all night. Looking back at pictures/videos all I can see is a happy couple and that is exactly how you want to remember your big day. At the end of the day you won't remember or care about any detail, all you will remember is how happy you were in the moment. Take it from a major bridezilla!

That is all for today, darlings. Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more.

And the final result was spectacular! Today you are invited to relive this enchanting wedding by hitting the play icon below. So don't think twice and fill your soul with tons of inspiration. This is one wedding celebration you don't want to miss!

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 planned my wedding in a short-period of time (6 months.) So when I was planning I had to move quickly, I had been following my wedding vendors on instagram for sometime and as soon as a date was set I started getting quotes and finagling everything as quick as I could.
 
My wedding planning experience was overall very fun and hectic. I planned my wedding in under 6 months, after realizing the venue we had chosen only had that date, and nothing else for the next year or so! I had a great support system helping me plan. My vendors were amazing!! Especially my photographer & videographer. I had been following Ayesha on Instagram for a while and contacted her immediately after setting a date. Finding my videographer was a little harder, I was a little hesitant at first because he wasn’t “known” in the desi community but he did such an amazing job!!
 
Planning the decor was fun but a lot didn’t go in we plan. I fell in love with my stage after seeing it at another wedding on Instagram once so I insisted on using the same florist that did the same stage, but the experience was not as good as she missed many details we had gone over. Looking back she was the only vendor I wouldn’t recommend.
 
My hair & makeup were done by the same vendor! She was so nice and sweet. I had gone to her for a trial, my bridal shower makeup, & mehndi makeup as well. This was a great decision because by my wedding she was comfortable with my face and knew what worked for me and what didnt!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a wedding dress disaster!!! I ordered a dress from Pakistan originally,  but when it arrived it wasn’t what was advertised. So me and my mom got in a car the next day and drove to canada to find a dress. I went to a few stores, but I bought the dress that I first tried on. I loved the unique color, and the detailing.
 
My whole life I had planned that I would go to Pakistan to go dress shopping, but with the little amount of time that I had and because of budget restrictions, I chose to order my dress online. BIG MISTAKEEEEE. It was not what I expected, and after seeing it I knew I couldn’t wear it. Two days later me and my mom drove to Canada to visit bridal boutiques. That’s where I found my dress, it was the first dress I tried on. I always wanted to wear maroon, but once I saw my cranberry dress, I fell in love.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
For me the process of planning out the small details was the funnest!! I loved scrolling through my Pinterest/IG feed looking at everyone else’s wedding.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our dessert table! It was so nicely put together & not to mention gorgeous. Our vendor mixed traditional desi desserts onto the table and I loved it! We also had a fresh jalebi maker in the kitchen!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A really special moment for me was when my mom was helping me get ready! I loved hearing our siblings speeches.
 
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.
My Mehndi was super colorful and fun! I ordered the dance floor cover from Pakistan, and loved all the color and detail on it. I made the canopy I walked in under, and I made the Shai Supari Wall For our Mehndi, me and my Husband learned our dance in the car after our photoshoot!!! We probably looked like idiots in front of everyone but we had fun.  Me, my mom, my dad built our shahi supari backdrop as well as the canopy I walked in under.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress & don’t over think it. Everything will work out. No ones even going to notice the small things you think are important. The venue completely messed up on my choice of linens and I didn’t even realize until I was looking at my wedding pictures. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Everything turned out great!!! My mehndi was done by a local mehndi artist!! A fun fact is she was the first person other than my mom to ever do my mehndi.
 
My jewelry was mix and matched between a local jewelry vendor and a vendor from Canada.
 
My cake was gorgeous & I loved it so much. I’m glad I decided to showcase it on my wedding stage.

What a fabulous wedding celebration! Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!

Happy Monday, ladies! We hope you had a great weekend. Our filmy time of the day is here, and along with it, a lot of inspiration accompanied it. On this installment, we are taking you to Atlanta, GA to enjoy all beauty surrounding Sanah & Ali's wedding festivities. To begin this journey, let me take you inside the hall of the Al Noor Banquet and Catering to relive this lovely couple's pre-wedding ceremonies, where an extraordinary moment was created by two soulmates that, on this day, became one. The wedding ceremony took place at the exclusive Atlanta Airport Marriott, in a beautiful and well-planned celebration by Red and Gold Events. All guests witnessed the eternal promise of love from our lovebirds. Our gorgeous Maharani left everyone speechless as she appeared with a phenomenal hairstyle from Color Impressions By Saba and a tremendous makeup art from Glamour Makeup by Ruth Lam. We should highlight the Mehndi art created by Forever Beauty by Manisha. Just splendid! The wedding ceremony concluded, and the phenomenal wedding reception started. Our friends from DJ Jaz- GTB Productions turned this gala into a party creating many memories that will last forever. Relive this magical event by checking today's gallery, and if this is not enough, you can be delighted by this visual masterpiece—both created by MNK Pro. Enjoy, darlings!

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 found most of my vendors through Facebook and Instagram. Social media is great because you can preview a vendor's work before making a decision. The first thing I did when we set our date was reach out to hair and make up artists and started looking at venues. I was lucky to get the hair and make up artists that I wanted. Finding venues for all three days of our wedding was a bit stressful as venues book up really fast. Thankfully we were able to get venues that we liked and were within our budget. I did feel overwhelmed and looked into getting a wedding planner. I found Nida Khan from Red and Gold Events on Instagram and after our phone consultation I just knew I needed her! She made me feel less stressed and gave me great advice and recommendations for vendors. After talking to Nida I started booking all the other vendors such as catering, photographer, decor, mehndi artist, etc.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My family and I went to England to shop for my wedding. I knew from the beginning that I wanted my bridal dress to be red and gold. We had 3 days of shopping planned in three different areas. As we started shopping, I got overwhelmed because there were so many different options. But the very first dress I tried on was the one! Originally I wanted a red dress with gold embroidery but this dress was all gold with a red dupatta and just so beautiful.  When I put the dress on and looked in the mirror I was just like "Wow, I feel like a bride!" My family loved the dress too! We still shopped around for another 2 days but nothing compared to the first dress and in the end the first dress I tried on was the one I bought.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I enjoyed the whole planning process. From looking for vendors, to meeting with them to discuss details, to shopping for my dresses and jewelry. But I think the most enjoyable part was going for the hair and make up trials!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The earlier you start planning the better. Venues and vendors get booked up really fast so if there's certain vendors you know you want you have to make sure you contact them as soon as you can.
 
Getting a wedding planner/day or coordinator is definitely worth it. Nida and her team from Red & Gold Events really helped take the stress away from me and my family during the wedding events. My parents and sisters were able to enjoy the wedding and mingle with the guests while Nida and her team made sure everything was going as planned.
 
Be organized. Getting a wedding planning binder or make you own. I made my own wedding binder and this helped me organize the details of all my events. It made it easy to see what has been done and what still needs to be done.

Plano, TX Indian Fusion Wedding by Texpertz Photography

Good morning, Maharanis! The filmy time from the day is here, and we were dying to come back to you with more inspiration. So sit back and enjoy what we have prepared for your enjoyment. First of all, let me tell you, today, we are double featuring Anam & Aamir's wedding festivities. So, you can enjoy a phenomenal photo gallery, and if this is not enough, you can relive this enormous event by taking a glance at the marvelous film below. Both creations from the expert team at Texpertz Photography. This emotive film will take you through our lovebirds' wedding festivities. From the Sangeet celebration hosted at the grand 2616 Commerce Event Center to the fabulous wedding reception attended at the marvelous Plano Ismaili Centre, we noticed the glamour and elegance that our Maharani delivered. She made the right choice by trusting the exceptional talent of Kashish By Hina, who took care of her beauty needs. Something to remark is the excellent talent from DJ Riz Entertainment, who lighted up the reception with their beats, making everyone dance the whole night. Don't think twice and click play below. You'll love it, and will get tons of inspiring ideas from it!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Aamir and I met when I was in middle school and he was in high school! We started dating when I was 14 and he was 15. Little did we know that 13 years later we would be getting married. I think we knew that this was going to work for the long haul when we very quickly clicked. We went from being boyfriend/girlfriend to best friends and then to business partners. At that point, we knew that this relationship was going to be a love story for the books

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Every thanksgiving we vacation in Cancun with Aamir's family. This was the first thanksgiving that we were going to go along to Cancun. Naturally I knew something was up. We stayed at the Secrets the Vine in Cancun in the honeymoon suite. Aamir had been playing me since August and letting me book our trip when little did I know he knew which resort I would end up picking and from there he worked with the resort for a romantic beach proposal. It was the cutest and sweetest moment of my life! It was perfect! As we came around the corner to go down the steps to the beach you saw herds of people gathered around and I remember looking to Aamir and saying oh look someone is getting proposed too and then I remember doing a double take and being like OMG THATS MY NAME!

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 this was SO FUN FOR ME! Being a corporate event planner i was so excited to plan a more creative like event. My favorite part was planning all the little surprise and delight experiences and my least favorite part was deciding on my outfits. I LITERALLY could not make a decision cause the pressure was so high.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew for my indian lengha I wanted a traditional red lengha. I have always dreamed of being a traditional bride in a bright red lengha. As I got older my dream started getting mixed in with an american style reception. With that being said we ended up doing a combo to make both dreams come true. A red lengha for the sangeet and a white lace wedding dress for the reception

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly it was when we were able to get our families together to do DIY projects, dance practices and wedding planning! It was so fun to get everyone together and it will be one of my favorite memories from the wedding. I am blessed to have such AMAZING family and cousins who were by my side during this whole wedding process

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think our guests favorite part of the wedding was how uniquely different it was. It had a good pairing of traditional and non-traditional elements.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our special moment was spending the morning of the reception with our bridal party and close family. We truly were blown away seeing everyone come together and make our dream wedding come together. I remember walking out from my hair and make-up into the venue hall and having that ah-huh moment on how blessed we truly are!

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 4 day wedding started off with a traditional mendhi at both the bride and grooms homes. It was filled with lots of food, laughter and dancing. We decided to change up the normal tradition and do the grooms egg rasum on this day to help the ease of the pithi/sangeet on the next day. The pithi and sangeet was our FAVORITE day! Our families put on wonderful performances and skits that talked about our relationship. Aamir and I are middle school sweethearts. Yes, middle school! The pithi had delicious indo-chinese food, chaat station, falooda station, bangle bar, bindi bar and dupatta bar. Guests were then served gourmet popcorn for their late night snack. The nikkah was on Friday and took place at our ismaili center in Plano. WE drove in style to the pithi in a McLaren and did the traditional khoba kobi game. Aamir build a WONDERFUL donut wall that we used to provide the traditional sweets for everyone to celebrate the marriage. On Saturday, we had a more americanized traditional reception! Growing up in the american culture but still having solid traditional roots made picking a theme for the wedding tough. Our happy medium was a FULL traditional mendhi, pithi, sangeet and nikkah with a non-traditional reception. We started the day off in a party bus and had a full day in the bridal and grooms suite with our bridal party! The evening kicked off with entrances, cake cutting and lots of dances. Each guest got to takeaway gourmet organic cotton candy for the favor. We catered barbeque food and had cupcakes and a smores bar for the desserts. We ended the evening with a sparkler exit and fireworks! It was truly a magical time!!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Just enjoy every moment of it. All the stress during the weekend is not worth it! You have family to help with that. You want to be able to look back and be apart of your wedding

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mendhi had a few hidden elements that meant alot to me. For example an infinity sign with 2006 hidden in it. That is the year we started dating. Cake tasting was one of our favorite days! We wanted something different and seasonal so we went with mint chocolate chip, coffee flavored and cinnamon spice. The venue for each of our days were so different. Pithi/Sangeet had a more industrial and vibrant feel. The reception was rustic and modern at the same time. I truly think we paired a fusion of cultures into a very intimate and lovely little wedding.
