Atlanta, GA Indian Wedding by Hakim's Studio

Good morning, Maharanis! Our filmy day has finally arrived with Hazel & Steven's marvelous celebration. These lovebirds had all the time to enjoy themselves thanks to Red & Gold Events' fantastic team behind the scenes to plan the event. This couple went for their dream, indeed! The whole celebration turned into a fairytale with the gorgeous carriages Nottingham Shire and Carriage for Hire provided and Rebecca Biskup in charge of the artistic cake. Hazel & Steven's ceremony and reception took place at Emory University, enchanting everyone with its warm aura. Of course, the embellishment of the venue couldn't be missing, and our lovely couple trusted Divine Decor Atlanta's impeccable skills to deliver the perfect adornment for their day while Cafe Bombay Indian Bistro delighted the guests with their culinary mastery. Exclusive Entertainment Events replenished the mystical scenery with a lively ambiance and Supreme Dholis' natural musical talent to escort our couple at all times. The soft melodies were heavenly, and so was Hazel! Our Maharani looked angelic with her sparkly lengha and enchanting smile. She had Color Impressions by Saba's experts to help enhance her magnificent features and the talented Forever Beauty by Manisha to do her magic and deliver the most artistic mehndi a Maharani could imagine. Hazel's soulmate, Steven, was amazed by her while looking gorgeous himself! Staring at each other's eyes, these sweethearts tell us all we need to know about devotion; their love is clear as water at any given moment. The phenomenal team of Hakim's Studio, with their unbelievable expertise, will take us back in time to Hazel & Steven's fabulous wedding day through an enthralling film that you can find right below. Maharanis, you'll feel this couple's adoration through the magical scenes only this well-known artist could do. 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Steven and I met in 2014 when we were both in the Georgia Tech Marching Band. We became good friends during our time in college, but it wasn't until after I graduated from GT in 2016 that we really reconnected. While I was pursuing my Master's at Georgia State and Steven was finishing up his degree at Georgia Tech, we spent more and more time together. We quickly realized that we were perfect for one another.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Within a few months of dating, Steven and I knew that we were going to get married one day. We had even picked out our wedding date (10.10.2020) and would get engaged sometime before then. After we both graduated in May 2018, we started more seriously thinking about our engagement. I had a very specific engagement ring in mind, so I asked my relatives in India to have it made and shipped to us. When it arrived at our house, I gave the ring to Steven and told him to do whatever we wanted with it; it was now in his hands (literally).

Steven and I would put "Date Nights" on our shared calendar and would take turns planning the events. Steven used one of the "Date Nights" to plan a day full of surprises and memories. I knew we were going to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens' 'Garden Nights, Holiday Lights' event. However, before we got there, Steven took me to one of our favorite Atlanta restaurants and to a few of our regular Atlanta hangout spots. It was a day of activities that we would be doing for the rest of our lives. While at the Gardens, we strolled through all of the beautiful scenery. When we reached the poinsettia wall, Steven got down on one knee and proposed. I barely remember what he said because I was crying and could barely see. I think he was crying a little too. I do remember saying "YES!". We left the Gardens and when we got home, Steven had gathered our parents and friends to surprise me with a celebration! It was a day full of happiness and excitement.

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Planning our wedding was one of the most difficult things I've done. The majority of my family lives out-of-state or out-of-country, so I did most of the planning on my own (and with Steven's help). I turned to social media for inspiration and guidance, especially Maharani Weddings. In planning and designing our wedding, I wanted to capture all of the beauty and tradition of a Hindu ceremony.

Our venue was the Emory Conference Center Hotel, and it was perfect. Because I've had a lot of bad luck with rain, I knew I wanted to have an indoor ceremony. However, I also wanted the beauty of natural light. ECCH has a stand-alone pavilion surrounded by greenery that was perfect for our ceremony location. They also had a bowling alley on the premises that we were able to use as entertainment for our guests in between the ceremony and reception.

We were fortunate to visit India in March 2020 (right before the COVID-19 pandemic hit and shut everything down!), and did all of our clothing and jewelry shopping there with the help of my Mama and Mami. While it was difficult to have such a limited amount of time to get a lot done, it was exciting to share the experience with Steven.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
As a creative person, I thoroughly enjoyed incorporating my own style into every element of the wedding. I designed and printed our wedding invitations, created an informational guide to the ceremony, created custom signs and decor for all of our wedding events, and personalized gifts for our family members and wedding party. Steven and I worked together to add our touch to every piece of the wedding weekend, and it really made each event feel special.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Due to the pandemic-related travel restrictions, the majority of my family were unable to travel from India and England to attend the wedding. Even many of our out-of-state family members were unable to join. Consequently, our wedding was primarily attended by our (American) friends. Since many of our guests had never attended an Indian, Hindu wedding before, they were enamored with every part of it. Seeing my hands and feet covered in mehendi, covering me and Steven in the haldi paste, dancing alongside Steven while he rode on a horse, witnessing the traditions of a Hindu ceremony, enjoying the dances at the reception... everything was a hit. And if nothing else, drinking mango lassi is always a fan-favorite.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
After the toasts, Steven and I had an opportunity to thank all of our guests. Standing on the stage and looking out at our loved ones, I was in tears. I was grateful that despite all of the challenges that we’d faced in making this day come together, it was finally here and we were able to share this moment with so many of our family and friends. Even though we were missing loved ones, being surrounded by so many wonderful people truly filled our hearts. There will never be another moment where we have that many people in one room to celebrate us. It was humbling.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Steven and I actually got legally married on October 10, 2020 in an intimate ceremony with our family and closest friends. We asked a dear friend of ours to serve as the officiant, and we prepared our own vows. We had not originally planned to do this, but once the pandemic hit, we knew that we would not be able to have the big Indian wedding we dreamed of in 2020. So, we postponed the huge celebration and had a small ceremony instead. We knew our wedding date was meant to be 10.10.2020 (even before we got engaged), and the pandemic was not going to stop us. Despite a hurricane passing through Atlanta on that day (I told you I had bad luck with rain), we had a wonderful time. And then in 2021, we were able to celebrate our 1-year anniversary with all of the festivities that we originally imagined.

And that's a wrap, ladies. I'll see you soon with more happily ever afters!

Long Island, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Niran Jangogula

Happy Wednesday, beautiful ladies! I hope you are ready for the filmy time of the day. Today we are double-featuring Lohitha Dasari & Mayur's wedding celebration. We have this jaw-dropping gallery created by the talented team from BNB Photography, and we are also pleased to present the visual masterpiece by Niran Jangogula. And I know that you will love them both! To begin this journey, let me tell you that Lohitha Dasari & Mayur, made a perfect combination of venues to host their big wedding celebration! The Garden City Hotel, the Hyatt Regency Long Island, and the Crest Hollow Country Clu witnessed their promise of eternal love, providing the perfect setting for each ceremony and event. Just fantastic. To enhance the beauty of these venues, Stylish Events & House of Dipali created a unique environment with an excellent decoration that left everyone speechless. But who really stole the show was our gorgeous maharani, who look dazzling throughout the entire wedding events thanks to Kanwal Batool, who took care of all her beauty needs. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below! I know you will love it as much as we did! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mayur and I initially dated when we were 15/16! We stayed friends after that for many years and always bumped into each other at random social events. Life happened and we reconnected again after I turned 30 and it was an instant connection. We had the same values and morals and instantly fell back in love again. Our first date was at a vineyard and we knew fate brought us back together for a reason.

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.
Unlike other brides I hated the part of "planning". It was something that gave me a lot of anxiety because I wanted everything to be perfect. I had a vision in my head but had a hard time putting that down on paper. My husband who is a creative genius helped out tremendously in this department and pretty much executed all our ideas to our vendors. As our wedding was going to be on Long Island we had to find venues that could hold the amount of guests we had attending ( 800 +). We went with The Garden city hotel, Hyatt Regency and Crest Hollow country club. My hair and makeup was done by Kanwal Batool and her amazing staff - She has always been a dear friend to me so that was the one thing I was certain about. The Decor and theme we worked with House of Dipali ( Kiriba Floral) and Stylish Events of NY to execute the different visions we had for each event. They were an incredible help. Last but not least our attentive wedding planner Artistic Affairs ( Jharna) was there from the first moment to the last. She really gave us so many unique ideas and helped plan to perfect, we could not have had such beautiful executed events without her and her team!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
All my Indian outfits were custom done by Mom in India. I wore two different sarees for the wedding ceremony and they were custom made on the handloom. My mom actually picked out all the threads and warping and they were weaved by the weavers. Fun fact - I did not try on any of my Indian outfits till the day of each event! I trusted my moms choices and they all came out perfect. My reception outfit was an american white dress covered in swarvoski crystals. My family and I traveled to California to Karoza Bridal to pick it out as I fell in love with their designs on instagram. I initially envisioned myself in a mermaid gown but after spending hours there my mom pulled the perfect princess gown that I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on. Once again I guess its true, Moms know best.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in our wedding was the first dance. My close friend Breanne actually sang our first song and recorded it and sent it to us all the way from Spain. She was unable to make the wedding but its something that my husband and I will cherish forever. We were serenaded with the most beautiful voice as we were dancing ; We truly felt there was no one else in the room as we danced.

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 sangeet night was filled with so much laughter and dancing. We had so many people that performed and took their time out of their life to add something special and memorable that we can remember, we will always hold those dances and songs close to our hearts. I also wanted to do a combination of songs dedicated to my grandmother, Mom & dad and my in laws. It was something I always wanted to do and I am glad I had the opportunity to do that.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't sweat the small things! So many things are going to go wrong and not as you planned but just remember this is the start of the rest of your life with your perfect love and that is what's important.

Wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. It will take your breath away!

Chantilly, VA Indian Wedding by Chasing Light Productions

Happy Friday, Maharanis! The end of this week is here, and we are pleased to present to you all the beauty that surrounded Kamal & Amanpreet's wedding festivity. If this sounds familiar is because we have previously shown you this event in a beautiful photo gallery, thanks to the talent from Rahul Rana Photography. On this installment, we have the phenomenal visual masterpiece created by the talented crew from Chasing Light Productions, who captured every emotion and intimate moment and transformed them into an emotive film. The exclusive Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles hosted this magical wedding, and let me tell you that it was perfect. But to add a special touch, Sarah Khan Event Styling created the ideal decoration for the whole event, not only this, but Elite Entertainment turned this gala into an epic party, where IndAroma dazzled everyone with a portion of exquisite food. And who was the mastermind behind the organization and planning? Non-other than Events by C, who captured our lovebird's vision and transformed them into a dream come true. Don't think twice and click the play icon below. You will be enchanted by every piece of it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on a dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel and our first date was, you guessed it, coffee on a chilly Sunday morning. It wasn't until after we hung out a bunch that my initial impression change, which was that he totally was not "The One". Spending more time with him, especially as friends, allowed me to take the pressure off of me (and any potential outcome) to just be and see what kind of human he really was, and really, if he was fit to be the human I want to share my future and life with.  Oddly enough, it was when we hung out in a Taco Bell parking lot, pigging out to crunchwrap supremes while listening to our favorite songs in the car that it hit me. Shortly thereafter, we both decided we wanted to be more than friends. There was not ever one moment that was more telling than others, but just how each moment built upon the prior to deepen our understanding of one another only to realize that this is my favorite human I’ve ever met in my life and we simply cannot do this thing life without each other.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was a total surprise and I was in a t-shirt and sweats. I arrived home after 4 hour drive from seeing my parents in NY to my condo being decorated with pictures of the two of us, candles everywhere with roses and him bending down on one knee ready with the ring and all. I literally couldn't fathom this was happening and that it was all real, so all I did was giggle the entire time. He had proof checked the entire idea and proposal with my best friends beforehand, even doing a dry run while I was away to visit my parents!

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 was a lost case until I met Chandani with Events By C, who is the darling of all darlings and a woman who knows her stuff and will get you a wedding, correction, beautiful wedding in less than five months. Yeap you read that correctly, we started to plan our wedding sometime in March and got married in June, and it really would not have been possible to fine tune it the way we did, let alone on a short time frame without her and all her connections. Having said that, I hated the entire experience. I do not like planning and especially not an Indian wedding, but having a sidekick through the entire process to help both of us put it together made it all bearable and doable, with a smile even!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for shopping and custom designed both my wedding and reception outfits with a store in New Delhi, @FrontierRaas.  I had an idea of what I wanted and they helped bring it to reality, albiet with lots of frustrating calls, whatsapp messages and delays, they came through for the win in the end.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Working with Chandani and Sarah Khan Events to make the environment we wanted to create for our wedding something real. We wanted an outdoor wedding and reception garden party where it felt like we were at home, and not in a ballroom. These amazingly intelligent and hardworking women put their efforts together and made it possible.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The decor! Sarah Khan Event Styling is what really made this wedding look different than any other wedding, in our humble opinion. I know every Bride thinks their wedding is the best one, and rightfully so, but I truly think our wedding was the most beautiful wedding I had ever been too.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
R. The First Look. Chandani and Elite Entertainment made it possible for me to surprise my groom at the mandap as a walked up to him dancing and being my silly self, just before we exchanged our wedding presents. It was so meaningful to have this moment before the chaos ensued and have a quiet moment to be present with one another and actualize "us" that day. 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be kind to yourselves during this process and don't let what other people want of you tarnish what you want of you and out of your relationship in this process.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Cake was also another beaut from Buttercream in DC (www.buttercreamdc.com), that was made to match my outfit and all the decor. 


Please come back on Monday, we have a new filmy prepared for you!

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.
Venue: Fillmore, Detroit, MI
Decor Theme: Royal Palace, traditional South Indian

We wanted a venue where we could implement all South Indian traditions as well accompany a large number of guests.The most important part about Fillmore is that it allowed us to decorate the the venue  without restrictions and allowed us to have our own catering. The venue itself is quite traditional and encompassed gold architecture.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
It is South Indian tradition to wear gold with red/Burgundy kanchipuriam saree for wedding ceremony. The color is to symbolize purity, prosperity, and fertility.  The saree was purchased at Kanchipuriam, Tamil nadu. For the reception, the theme color was rose pink. Bridal lengha was by Tarun Tahiliani from Bangalore, Karnataka.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The decor was the most enjoyable part. I spent countless hours into research upon designs I had envisioned. I wanted something unique and exquisite. There was a lot of detail that went into each centerpiece, mantaps, design of the cake, etc.
