Whippany, NJ Indian Wedding by Inzi Wedding Films

A happy couple with a royal flair! Anita and Rushang are the epitome of a match made in heaven! These two held, what could easily be the wedding of the year, at the splendid Hanover Marriott! Just a few days ago, we delighted ourselves with the stunning imagery by the talented Ron Soliman Photojournalism in our Platinum Guide Blog; and now we can enjoy the gorgeous moving images thanks to the celebrated storytellers of INZI Wedding Films. The décor couture company, Partyland Event Design Boutique, was the fabulous team behind the grand decoration that displayed an extraordinary draped set up for the ceremony and a striking elegant setting for the last event. Our Indian beauty, Anita, showed some major bridal style and called the talented mehndi artist, Mehndikalogie to embellish her with the most beautiful henna paisleys, and also recruited the bridal beauty expert Heena Das Beauty to create her princess-perfect look for both of her major events. Luxe Event Entertainment was present to deliver the best vibrant sounds for some serious post-ceremony excitement and celebrations that you can watch in the highlight reel below! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband's name is Rushang Patel. According to my close friend, (who is a mutual friend of ours) we had met each other many many times over the past 10 years. However, we never really paid close attention to each other. Either I was dating someone at the time or he was dating someone,  or we were just star-crossed lovers. 
 
On October 31, 2015, it was written in the stars for us to meet again, but this time it was meant to turn into a lifetime bond. I was attending my best friends 30th birthday, and Rushang was attending his close friends birthday in New York City. It turned out that my best friend is his close friend's cousin, and they were having a joint birthday party. It was a Halloween party, so I was dressed as a fairy in a tutu with wings. Rushang's personality is very much like the life of the party, and a unique individual. He was wearing a very hideous looking "peace" sign mask that immediately caught my attention, being that it was very random. We both enjoyed the party with our friends, and eventually, he literally swept me off my feet and carried me to the dance floor (randomly of course). Here, Rushang told me I finally was able to get you away from our friends so we can talk to each other. We proceeded to dance and talk the night away until it was time to go. The time went by so fast in my mind, however, we had been slow dancing (during fast music) and talking for almost two hours. He asked me for my phone number because he wanted to keep in touch with me after that night. Knowing that he was friends with my best friend, I trusted him enough to go ahead and take the plunge. 
 
Later, I found out that Rushang was actually there for that one weekend after being away for over a month. I learned that Rushang was going to be away in Quantico for six months of training. We talked over the phone and Skype for a month after we met, before our first date.  Our first date was at a hibachi restaurant in Jersey City, followed by a private night time tour of Ellis Island where we could see a beautiful view of the NYC skyline and Statue of Liberty. 
 
I didn't know he was the one until approximately one and a half month after our first date. At this time, a blizzard had passed, and we were snowed in on a Saturday. Sunday morning, Rushang and I went down to dig our cars out. I realized that I left my second shovel at my parent's house, so there was only one shovel. He sent me back upstairs to my apartment, after my attempts of borrowing a shovel from someone to help Rushang was unsuccessful. I was able to see the parking lot from my apartment, and I periodically checked to see if he was done digging the cars out. Our cars were done in 45 minutes, but he was out there for over an hour and a half. After a while, I went to the window to see what was taking him so long. That's when I saw that he was helping all my neighbors in the parking lot in digging their cars out. He helped at least five other people that day, and that's when I knew that he was the one. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After 7 months of being together, Rushang was stationed in another state for work, which led us to have a long distance relationship. That same year we had reached our one year anniversary of dating on October 31, 2016. He came home for Christmas and New Years in 2016, and I thought he was going back after new years. Well, he decided to surprise me by extending his stay for an extra week. I knew something was fishy because he never does that! We did date nights often, so on Friday, January 6, 2017, we had a date night planned at The Liberty House in Jersey City. One of my friends told me to wear something nice, and my sister in law told me to paint my accent nail rose gold (I have a rose gold obsession). Both also was weird, because I always do my nails, and I always wear a nice dress when we go out. So I had an idea that something was going on. We got to Liberty House, and Rushang said why don't we go outside (in 30-degree weather!). Even though it was bizarre, I just listened and went outside with him. At the Liberty House, you can see the NYC skyline in their outdoor section. That's where he got down on one knee and popped the question, and I said YES! My brother in law was right behind us taking pictures. Afterward, we had our dinner, and all our family and friends were waiting for us at a bar to celebrate our special night with us. My ring is very special to me.  The center diamond has a halo of rose gold with pink diamonds in it, which brings out my personality to perfection and it was exactly what I wanted. Many years ago, I had seen that specific ring on a website and I fell in love with it. I had told my friends that one day when someone decides to marry me, this will be my engagement ring, and now it is!
 
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.
Initially, the whole planning process seemed so overwhelming, but once I got the venue, everything else just fell into place. I chose all my vendors based on their creativity, character, personality, and compassion. I met so many people, and not everyone makes you feel like family. Teresa Gasper was our venue manager at the time, and she truly made me feel like she was giving me her home to get married in. Heena Malhotra Das was my hair and makeup artist, and she listened and understood all the little details I wanted for my looks. She never pushed any ideas on me, and that is what made me feel so comfortable that I could blindly trust her in her artistic abilities. She made it a point to make my looks unique for all four of my events (we had a Garba on Friday and a Sangeet on Saturday before the wedding weekend). I don't have any sisters, and she made me feel like my sister was getting me ready for my wedding. Not only did we have a great relationship with me being her client, we carried on our relationship afterward and are now good friends! 
 
Similarly, Sachi Sood from Partyland Sajawat understood that I had no idea what I wanted as far as a theme, and knew nothing about decor, but I knew that colors were important to me. She spent time getting to know me and my personality, then made my decor look like a reflection of who I am and symbolized my personality. I wanted rose gold somewhere during each event. Subtle, but significant enough to catch your eye. She specially ordered rose gold frames for my wedding, and made special rose gold centerpieces for our estate tables. We both worked together to make our vision come to life, and to give our decor a tasteful and unique look. 
 
Ron and Bless Soliman are the power couple of photography! They are two of the most nicest and humble people I've met. They are so good at what they do and make you feel like you are their family. They always are full of surprises and give such cute presents. I couldn't have gotten through our wedding day without such heartwarming photographers. They made us feel very much at ease and ensured that we had a good time and remembered to keep us smiling. When my dad passed away, we needed a picture of him for his services, and Bless had sent us the PERFECT and most beautiful picture of him in the span of minutes. We are forever grateful to both of them for their compassion and love. 
 
Daniel Inzitari is one of the most creative cinematographers I've had the pleasure to meet. His film school background shines so beautifully in his work. His subtle creativity with using voice-overs, his organization, his camera angles, his fun-loving nature made it so easy to act natural in front of the camera. I could watch our wedding highlight film for hours and never get tired of it. His creativity and choice of instrumental music were perfect for all the scenes in our highlight film. 
 
DJ Gaurav is our longtime friend and such a humble human being. He was so attentive to all our needs and did a great job mixing Punjabi, Hindi, and American music for all our events. He is very good at reading cues and could tell when to transition to ending father daughter and mother son dances based on fatigue and body language. His attention to detail is impeccable, and he is so amazing that Rushang's baraat went on for an hour! People could not stop dancing! 
 
Palav Desai from Padma Graphic Design did our programs, place cards, and table numbers. I spent countless hours editing draft after draft. Her patience and hard work on the details of our wedding made even the smallest items stand out to our guests. 
 
Brijen Patel did an amazing job with my husband's safa and all of our family member's safas. He especially went up to my Dad's room as he was having a hard time walking back and forth due to his illness, which meant so much to me. I couldn't be happier with our amazing team, and would blindly trust each and every one of these vendors for all my future events.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My family is from Delhi, India so I went shopping in Delhi. I bought both my ceremony and reception outfits from Frontier Raas in South Extension II, New Delhi. I always knew that I didn't want an all red lengha. Many years ago, I had seen someone wear a velvet blue lengha with a red dupatta and I fell in love with that idea. I tried on a couple of velvet blue outfits, but I kept going back to the first one. I also tried one full red one on too, but it just wasn't for me. I tried the first one on one more time and looked at my Dad. That look of love and emotion from him is when I said Yes to the dress, a moment I will never ever forget. My reception outfit I designed myself. I love sparkle and glitter and wanted sequin in my lengha, but I wanted something that no one had ever seen before. I tried on things that had sequin, but nothing met my expectations of the kind of sparkle I wanted. I had seen a lengha with a gradient sequin look and showed my inspiration to the designers at Frontier Raas. They realized that I wanted something specific and decided to make my vision come to life. My skirt has small mirrors that were all put on by handwork on the bottom that transitions into gold sequin, and then silver sequin. There is an underskirt of lace under the net which the sequin sits on which gives the skirt the elegant but light look I wanted. The waist of the skirt has scalloped edging. Being that I am a Hindu Punjabi, traditionally we wear Chooda on our wrists when we get married. I wanted a red border on the bottom of the skirt to match the chooda. My pink dupatta was hand embroidered to have red flows to match the chooda, and white flowers to give it a contrast. It also had scalloped edging to match the waist of the skirt. I designed a light sleeveless blouse with light sequin to give the skirt and dupatta more of the spotlight. It took three to four months for Frontier to make my reception lengha, and I was so incredibly happy with their hard work and dedication. We had a lot of WhatsApp chats back and forth which helped me feel comfortable in trusting them to do an amazing job. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The day of the events is when all your hard work pays off. From dances, outfits, to the decor and programs, from place cards to table numbers, from DJ to Photography, and from cinematography to a black light up dance floor. That feeling I got when my vision came to life, was the greatest feeling.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our first dance. I spent months doing the choreography for it, and it came out perfect. One day Rushang and I were listening to the DJ NYK podcast, and the song Soch Na Sake was remixed into it. It was the first time I had heard that song, and that day I knew that it was going to be our song. Not only did it have a romantic part to it, but it also had parts with EDM music that my husband loves. Our performance had a mix of ballroom dancing, freestyle, and a tiny touch of classical. It was the perfect portrayal of our separate personalities, and our personalities together. Our guests also loved our Filmfare magazine wedding programs which I designed myself, and our graphic designer (Palav) brought them to life. Our table numbers and place cards were also a design of mine that she brought to life with glitter paper that matched our black, silver, and rose gold glitter theme. I also received many compliments and texts about all my outfits and where I got them from. Lastly, we gave coasters as party favors at our reception and our guests loved them and utilize them all the time. There were 4 colors and each color had a different quote, our names, and our wedding date. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My Dad's Speech and our Father-Daughter Dance is something that I remember very distinctly. I was so concerned for him, and whether he was going to be able to give the speech and dance with me despite having Stage 4 Gall Bladder Cancer. He pulled through, and he did it all so well. I will never forget his strength, and I am so proud of him for battling something so painful to make it through our wedding gracefully. 
 
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 husband is Gujurati, and we had a Garba on June 15, 2018. I wore a sea green Swati Manish Lengha from Mumbai. The decor was a Morrocan themed decor by Partyland Sajawat. We had a Sangeet on June 16, 2018. The theme was very colorful and Punjabi themed decor. That day I performed a very special dance incorporating my family, and my new family which brought the entire room to tears. That dance is very special to my entire family as it's the last memory we all have together with my Dad. We had a traditional Punjabi Jaggo and Boliyan which was the highlight of our sangeet. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was so much fun! I wore a magenta and light yellow/cream lengha from Frontier Raas.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Wedding Planning seems so overwhelming at first, but everything falls into place the way it's supposed to. I'm so glad I followed my heart by choosing all my vendors. They were all so supportive, and there for me, my husband, and my family during our toughest and happiest time. My biggest and most important advice to brides out there is to follow your heart when choosing your vendors, your outfits, and every single detail during your wedding. Don't settle for anything less than what you dreamed of! 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndikalogie did my mehndi and Dhara was so wonderful! I love elephants and she incorporated elephants in my mehndi on my feet and hands. She was so flexible with timing and positioning when she was completing my mehndi. Her artistic ability is the best I've ever seen and I truly commend her for her attention to detail and creativity. Not only are Dhara's designs beautiful, but her mehndi ingredients are organic and leave a beautiful color on both your hands and feet. Usually, mehndi doesn't come out dark on the dorsal side of my hands, but for the first time, it came out perfect all because of Dhara and her natural mehndi ingredients.  Her assistant who did my family's mehndi was very professional and did a fantastic job.  I enjoyed chatting with her, and we had some good laughs while she was applying my mehndi as well. The Hanover Marriott was the perfect venue. I only wanted hotels out of convenience. When I looked at venues, the things that stuck out to me always were the ballroom carpet, lobby, and overall ambiance. The Hanover Marriott had a modern ambiance, and that's what I loved about it.
 
See you on Friday, Maharanis!

Downers Grove, IL Fusion Indian Wedding by Old North Film Company

Greetings and Happy wedding Wednesday my dear readers! Get ready to take a sneak peek into an adorable fairy tale wedding! Akshali and Shubang’s nuptials seem straight out of a romantic movie thanks to the beautiful film by Old North Film Company that condensed the lovely ceremonies and events that fused their Tamil and North Indian backgrounds! Rosanna Catapano Event Design was responsible for planning their celebrations that peaked with a traditional Tamil ceremony at Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago and a stunning rustic Marwadi / North Indian ceremony at the Esplanade Lakes by DoubleTree that included a small touch of American feeling! Akshali flaunted a whole collection of bridal outfits, but I must say the stunning purple silk saree and the custom-made floral ghagra choli are my absolute favorites! Two Birds Photography was at the front row of the festivities capturing all the special moments all recently featured in our Main Blog, including the fabulous reception that put an end to such a magical union! Read and find out what this lovely bride has to say about her big days and don’t forget to play the stunning footage below!  

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Shubang standing in line for a Haunted Forest on Halloween night in our college town of Ames, Iowa. I was visiting campus as an alum and the line was so long we started chatting. Next thing you know, he’s at my surprise birthday party and giving me rides around town - we kept running into each other all weekend and hit it off. We kept in touch throughout the Fall through text until he visited me in New York over Christmas. That’s when we went on our first date and he asked me to be his girlfriend while walking along the Hudson at night. 4 years of long distance and multiple trips later, we are finally married and living together! 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were supposed to get engaged in the Fall, but Shub surprised me by gifting me a skydiving experience for my birthday - 4 months ahead of my actual birthday! I jumped off the plane and little did I know the whole family was hiding and setting things up for the big surprise. When I landed, Shubang, his sister, and my brother were all there at the bottom waiting with a giant banner that said “Will You Marty Me?” and a gorgeous rose-gold ring! 

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 did something unique in that we actually had two weddings to honor both of our cultures. We had a smaller, traditional South Indian Tamil wedding on Thursday and Friday, followed by a more fusion, North Indian-American style wedding, and reception on Saturday. So, we had two sets of vendors for each wedding. For the Tamil Wedding, the venue, decor, and outfits were very traditional, complete with kanchipuram silk, nawaari (9-yard) bridal sari. For Saturday, I defied tradition a bit and went for a more fusion look - instead of a traditional red lehenga, I opted for a custom white and pink floral ghagra that I had custom made in India from my cousin’s friend to match our rustic floral decor theme. We had a very patient and understanding decorator who created for us a wooden mandap frame with white and pastel draping. Since most of my color theme on Saturday involved lots of soft pastels and pinks, we went with burgundy for our bridal party and flower girl dresses. We also decided to mix things up by having western outfits for our bridesmaids and groomsmen to contrast with Indian outfits for us!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a dress design in mind for years before I got engaged, actually - I saw a non-traditional, white floral a Sabyasachi ghagra on the cover of a Vogue India Magazine in 2016 and ever since I saw it, I fell in love. I think a lot of people were surprised when I didn’t wear a traditional red or red and white panithar ghagra for my wedding, but I was really set on my dream dress and was holding my breath that someone could recreate what I saw in the picture years ago. Luckily, one of my bhabhi’s best friends, the talented Amrita Saluja, was an up and coming fashion designer in India and she was up for the challenge! She was so patient with me as we went back and forth on WhatsApp and video chat over the course of four months to bring it to life. I got to try on the blouse when I went to India a few months before the wedding and saw it come together - it was gorgeous and even better than I had ever imagined.  

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My favorite part was being able to pursue a creative project after so long. Before I became an urban planner, original career goal was to be some sort of designer - either fashion or graphic design. So, I loved being able to channel that into our wedding planning through custom designing my own dress, invitations, website, decor approach, and even photo album. Although it was a lot of effort to design everything from scratch, it was also incredibly fulfilling to watch everything come to life. Our families were so instrumental in making our wedding week happen. It definitely wouldn’t have come together without them! Family was a really big part of our planning process.  

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think all my relatives loved how well organized and on-time everything was, which was incredible given how many people were involved and how many different events we had!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Something funny now to think about - I actually lost my engagement ring in the parking lot the first day of the Tamil wedding. The entire first ceremony me and my family were all so tense and Shubang had no idea why! Luckily, my cousin and brother went out and searched the whole lot and miraculously managed to find it! The day was a lot merrier after that :)

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 decor for every event was different because different people organized each event. We decided to have a smaller, more informal Sangeet in a beautiful Airbnb house that Shubang’s family rented nearby - his family did a great job with all the DIY decorations! For the Tamil Wedding on Friday, we had a more traditional look and feel. Something I loved was incorporating the Tamil culture into our guests’ meal. We served lunch on real banana leaves for each guest - that was a very unique touch that I loved. On Saturday, we went for a more fusion theme and incorporated both Marwadi / North Indian and American floral rustic looks into the decor. We had a traditional ceremony and Baraat with a modern, fun reception to end the night. 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Oh gosh, so many! I would say the biggest piece of advice would be that it’s very easy to get overwhelmed and sucked into all the wedding madness. Try not to go down that rabbit hole! Remember why you are getting married in the first place and leave the rest to your wedding coordinator ;). Be sure to eat well the week of your wedding and get some sleep! I was up till 3 am the night before my wedding getting things ready and I really advise NOT to do that. 

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I loved all of my personal florals on Saturday, especially my hair piece. Big thank you to Grace from Vale of Enna for patiently working with me to get florals pieces that we loved!

 

Wait for your daily dose of inspiration tomorrow!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in college. I was a sophomore at UConn and he was a senior at CCSU. My roommate introduced us. She gave him my phone number without telling me and then he messaged me. We talked over the phone for a month and then we went on our first date - movie, and dinner. We had pizza. Five months later, he asked me to be his girlfriend in a Stop&Shop parking lot LOL. A few years later he asked to marry me and now we’re married!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was my dad’s birthday and we all went out for dinner. Amit was running late. Amit’s dad said he had a present for my dad. He went to go get it and he came back wheeling a flatbed with a giant gift box on it. My dad opened the box and all sides of the box came down and Amit was inside with a bouquet of red roses (my favorite) and a ring in his other hand. The inside of the box had pictures of us all over. He was on one knee and he said “Janu, I love you so much. I’m so glad to be with you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you.” And then he asked me to marry him in Gujarati! He said “Maari jode lagan karis?” Too cute! Of course, I said yes. :)
 
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 used Blueprint Occasions as my wedding planners. They did a phenomenal job with everything and I couldn’t be happier! I used Zuri Life for hair and makeup - they were so kind, fast, and efficient! Hair and makeup were done in 45mins-1hr tops! For decor, I used Design House Decor. The theme was “Vermont meets India” because my parents live in Vermont and I liked the country aspect with the trees and vines. I had D&S Event Solutions as my DJ- they did an amazing job! So many people praised them! Henna Cafe by Manisha Trivedi for henna. Visual Comet for lighting. The venue was Crowne Plaza in Warwick, Rhode Island. All very professional and did a great job!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had Ruchita Dagli, a very talented designer based in Boston, MA, make my Garba, Wedding, and Reception outfits. Every single detail on each outfit was perfect! The fit was perfect, the work was so intricate, and she even matched jewelry for me. I had no worries at all! It was more than what I hoped for. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I enjoyed planning everything, I can’t pick one. Of course, it was stressful at times, but all totally worth it!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved the food, music, and decor. They had a lot of fun! You can’t just tell from the vibe. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When Amit surprised me with a dance. He doesn’t dance but he did it for me!
 

Have a lovely day Maharanis! We’ll see you tomorrow with another beautiful wedding story!
