Whippany, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Good morning, Maharanis! It is Friday, and like every day, we are here to re-fill your inspiration. A wedding is something we all dreamed about since we were just kids. One of the most fabulous days in our life is when you see that dream accomplished. Today, we want to present you with Shivani & Zeal's, dream come true. To begin this journey, let me take you to the exclusive Hanover Marriott. A perfect venue, chosen by our lovebirds to tie the knot! First of all, we would like to remark how our gorgeous Maharani showcased her natural beauty in such a perfect way. She chose the Bridal Butterflies' team for her beauty needs. And they delivered nothing but perfection! And we cannot forget to mention the marvelous Mehndi art that Rita Shah's Mehndi created for our bride. Let me tell you that everyone admired how dazzling she looked during the entire event. This was a memorable celebration that will forever be recalled thanks to the delicious food served by Rasoi, the cake and treats from Palermo Bakery, the decoration crafted by JP Decor, and of course, the phenomenal beats from M4U Events, who turned this gala into an epic party. You can relive every single detail of this moment by hitting the play icon below. So, get ready to admire the talented work of Lightyear Studio!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my groom in college, and it was not love at first sight! We became really good friends and before we knew it, we had both fallen for each other. There wasn't one defining moment where I knew that he was the one. It was a culmination of events, the little things, that added up.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had a trip planned to Italy and France. I am the kind of person who has a very detailed itinerary when I go on vacation so he had to tell me that he had a photoshoot planned for us when we were in Paris because I had kept telling him how it's so cute that couples do photoshoots in these nice places. To avoid any chances of me finding the ring, he had his brother fly into Paris with the ring the day before! We did our photoshoot, and at the end, he got down on one knee outside of the Eiffel Tower.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I knew from the beginning that I wanted a traditional red lehenga for my wedding day. I am also a very indecisive person and can never pick anything on my own because I am never sure of whether it looks good. I was trying on different lehengas and my daddy said "This is the one" when I tried one on. That is the one I ended up buying!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The entire process was very enjoyable (and stressful), but our favorite part about the wedding-planning process was how much we learned about each other throughout the process and how much we learned about ourselves as well... our likes, dislikes, what we agree on, what we disagree on, and how to meet in the middle.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved our DJ/MC and our decorations!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment when I entered for my wedding was the most amazing feeling. I wanted time to freeze and to be able to capture the reactions of all of our friends and family. Also, our first look! My fiancé had not seen my outfit or any of my accessories prior to the first look so it was a complete surprise for him which made it all the more special.

If we inspire you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you on Monday. So stay tuned!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
During my fourth year of dental school, Indy and I planned an impromptu trip to Paris. I spent a lot of time planning out the whole trip with Indy, little did I know he already had it all planned out! Our first morning in Paris, we went to Montmartre, my favorite part of Paris. It was a bit of a gloomy morning but Indy insisted we go anyway. Once we were there, Indy proposed in a garden in front of The Wall of Love and had a photographer waiting there to capture the moment! She captured the entire proposal as well as the snow flurries that begun falling immediately after he proposed! We spent the next 5 days enjoying everything that Paris has to offer.
 
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 could not have planned this wedding without the help of our wedding planner, Therese (Electric Karma), and our families! It truly was a team effort with each member of our family playing a big part. After visiting Cabo with my parents and Therese, we immediately chose Paradisus Los Cabos as our venue. Once the venue was in place, Therese guided us in picking all of the vendors, most of which she knew personally. We got lucky with the most incredible group of vendors who we worked with closely over the course of one year to plan all of the details.

Decor: Del Cabo Weddings

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was the amount of time that Indy and I spent talking to our parents and sisters and bouncing ideas off each other throughout the year. I felt that both of our families really bonded through the wedding planning process. The brunches, family "meetings" and phone calls made the planning process fun! Especially because Indy and I lived in New York and Boston, respectively, for half of the planning process, so it was nice being in touch with our family in Texas.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved how much detail went around planning four days of events. It is very rare for an Indian wedding to stick to a schedule, but we were able to make it work! We had our wedding in Cabo San Lucas at the Paradisus Los Cabos resort, a relatively small resort which means our wedding took over the majority of rooms with all ~240 guests staying there. We had beautiful weather the whole week and Cabo is such a breathtaking place to spend time with friends and family before getting married! Everyone was in vacation-mode and had plenty of energy for the four days of fun that we had planned! Guests also had plenty of time each day to enjoy the resort, beach and the town since we had the Sangeet, Wedding Ceremony, and Reception each on a separate day.
 
Everyone also loved the food! The resort had a variety of great sit-down restaurants and we were lucky to have Chef Gaurav Anand fly in from New York City to cater our wedding! He curated a wonderful menu of Indian, Mexican, and International dishes for the Sangeet, Wedding Day, Cocktail hour and Reception. He put together an incredible plated Indian dinner for our reception which was the one thing I really wanted all along!!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I just keep dreaming about the whole week of countless amazing memories! We truly had the best week of our lives in paradise with all of our family and friends. We're already planning a reunion trip!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There are so many aspects to planning a wedding that I never even thought of before this whole process. Having a knowledgable wedding planner, such as Therese, who has done this almost 1,000 times (literally!) really helped us achieve everything we wanted! Without her knowledge and experience, we would have been overwhelmed, especially since we chose to do a destination wedding.

If you were inspired today, wait to see what we have prepared just for you tomorrow. So stay tuned!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him about 5 years ago when I was in my second year of optometry school with no time to date. He was working just around the corner, but since I never checked my dating apps, he decided to connect with me on Facebook instead and requested me on a whim. After playing it safe and telling me he added me by "accident", we started messaging for hours and instantly clicked. Our first date was actually very random, but almost destined in a way. Bhavik was getting a falafel at his favorite cart in all of New York, which just happened to be up the block from where I lived at the time and he decided to FaceTime me as he was waiting in line. When I realized he was in my neighborhood, I excitedly blurted out that I was craving some falafel too and Bhavik instantly changed his order to two. We finally met and had a nice unexpected first date. We were talking for about a month when he surprised me with Broadway tickets to Aladdin. While watching the show, I just knew he was the one. :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was my day off from residency and I had plans to meet my friend who was visiting me from California. It was actually one of the coldest days of December 2017 and I didn't plan to dress up at all, but my friend said to straighten my hair so we can "take selfies on the rooftop". I was really confused why we would be on a rooftop in the middle of winter, but I just went with it. Before I left, I saw an email from my doorman that a package was picked up by Bhavik this morning. He actually picked up proposal props from my roommates and they were all extremely nervous the surprise was ruined. Luckily, I was so convinced he was in NJ that I completely dismissed it. I went to the rooftop and kept looking around for my friend, until I turned the corner, and saw Bhavik standing in a suit with the most beautiful set up behind him along with NYC's skyline at sunset. Then as I walked towards him, my favorite country song started to play. It turns out my friend was never in town and I was completely surprised.

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 planned our wedding throughout a year slowly booking one vendor at a time. We saw about 12 venues over a weekend and instantly loved Hyatt Regency Princeton for it's open lobby & cocktail area. It fits over 400+ guests and has excellent service. Shoutout to Kristy! As for DJ/MC, we were looking for a specific musical ambiance for our ceremony and knowing DNS Event Solutions' team personally, we completely trusted them to carry it out as we dreamt. We spoke regularly all year to create our vision and later added lighting effects, a Video Wall, and a Floor wrap with their help. I went to India for outfit shopping (Bombay, Ahmedabad, and Baroda) and got my wedding and reception outfits in Bombay. As for Hair and Makeup, I went through about 20 vendors and was looking for the perfect fit. I knew I wanted to connect personally since I would be spending most of my day with this person and wanted my look to be true to me. I also wanted to find someone who could help with all my bridesmaids and mom's needs and came across Arfana Jasar, who was more than perfect. As for my Mehndi artist, I used Anuja for my engagement and booked her instantly for my wedding. She is amazing and her work is perfection. I wanted Aladdin themed henna because it told a part of our story and she was able to draw Aladdin and Jasmine on one arm and Agrabah on my other. For decor, we loved Nirali Decors for being extremely flexible with us through the process. I knew as I got my outfits and as our day got closer, I would want to change things.She made a dream come true with it that day. Photo/Video were extremely important to us. We went with separate vendors who specialized in each. Our photographer, Abhi, gave us extremely practical and genuine advice. We initially wanted to do our photoshoot in a random pretty location, but he recommended to pick a place that meant a lot to us. For him, photos tell a story, and he wanted us to look back at our engagement shoot, and be able to share and remember a story with each picture and looking back at them now, we couldn't be more grateful for the memories that came to life. Our videographer, was Rare Air Films, and this was our wedding gift to ourselves. We had the best time making an entrance video which told the story of how we met, and working with TJ and his team was absolutely amazing. The actual filming of it was an experience related to wedding planning we will never forget. Lastly, our event coordinator was Events by Ridhi P. Ridhi was amazing to work with and helped us with anything and everything all year to make sure we felt comfortable and stress-free. Her team did an excellent job!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted traditional red and white, but mostly a white skirt. I went to a couple of stores in Bombay and was luckily able to custom design several parts of my outfit. I designed the blouse and duppata over my head. I had them change my skirt to Ivory, which was initially all red. I actually didn't get to see it for months until it was shipped here, but it was perfect.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was being able to be creative together and adding all of our personal touches. We tried to add unique things for our quests to enjoy such as fresh coconuts, a sugar-cane juice stand at garba, and a video wall during our reception as well as a bunch of meaningful aspects for us such as our entrance video that told our story, cookie shooter shots, mother/son and father/daughter slideshows to play during the dances, and the floor wrap. The Floor Wrap was my favorite part, it was made by Rob at GoToShout, and I used the monogram from my Kankotri and custom-designed the floral wrap to match the whole theme. They also made our seating charts for us! Making it completely geared to our personalities and story made it a process we will always remember.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved the coconuts, that's for sure. Also, our entrance video was a hit! Link: https://vimeo.com/360920650

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly, the ceremony itself was so special to us. Sitting at the mandap felt so serene and peaceful. We had worked a lot with our DJ/MC and priest to make it more meaningful to us. Our DJ, Smith, went above and beyond to make the ceremony atmosphere very zen-like with special lighting effects and tranquil music. Our MC, Vig, coordinated with our priest and translated the Sanskrit versus and meaning of each step of the wedding along with appropriate throwback songs that we loved! It really was SO fun.

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.
We used Rohit Gijare Choreography for our garba dance, first dance, and entrance dance.He was excellent, taught us so well and so quick toot! My husband had no idea how to dance, and now dancing is his favorite hobby. Also, I used ABPD Photography for my pre-wedding events. Anand was amazing to work with!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Yes, enjoy planning together and make the wedding day your own as much as you can. People say wedding planning can be boring or stressful, but there's so many ways to add a personal and creative touch to the day that will keep fueling your excitement. Bhavik loves cookies and milk, so we had the bakery make us custom cookie shooters with milk in them & the excitement of sharing this as well as other little touches with our guests added to the overall experience of planning. Also, my advice is not to stress or worry if a vendor is taken. There are so many others and it happens for the best!For more awe-inspiring films, visit us tomorrow.

I bet you will love what we have for you!

Toronto, ON Indian Wedding by Happy Soul films

Good morning, ladies! It is Monday, and we know that this week will bring you tons of inspiration, and this brand new film is a perfect example! Today, we are unveiling the beauty surrounding Sangeeta & Dipak's wedding festivities. We are double featuring this fabulous event, how cool is this? You can enjoy the phenomenal photo gallery captured by the talented team from Samir K Photography, and if that is not enough, you can be delighted by the visual masterpiece from Happy Soul films, who made sure to bring us all of the details from this lovely festivity. The exclusive Sri Sathya Sai Baba Centre of Scarborough hosted the spectacular ceremony, where every guest enjoyed the magical aura surrounding this life-changing event. Once the ceremony concluded, everyone attended the wedding reception hosted at Scarborough Convention Centre, a perfect venue for a magical celebration. Two different families gather to celebrate their favorites on an unforgettable night. And before we end this feature, we want to take a moment to admire Sangeeta's look, who dazzled everyone with such a royal look! And who was the mastermind behind this ravishing look? It was none other than Khalisah who designed a jaw-dropping hairstyle and makeup. To relive this moment, go ahead and click on the play icon below. We are sure you are going to have a great time!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Believe it or not, my father introduced me to him while we were at the temple! I knew he was the one during our second date when we spent an entire evening drinking herbal tea, listening to music and just sharing our life stories with each other. He was just so easy to talk to and I felt like I've known him my whole life.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He told me to get dressed up and meet him downtown to go to his office Christmas party. When I arrived at his place, I walked in to see rose petals, candles and fairy lights beautifully decorating the entire living room and then he got down on one knee and said "I love you" for the very first time and asked me to marry him. I was so shocked that I almost forgot to say 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 had a very clear idea of what I wanted since I had an entire Pinterest board dedicated to my dream wedding for years. My husband and I made most of our decisions quite quickly because we knew what we liked and we were very aligned in our vision. We only met with each of our vendors about 2-3 times and had all the details confirmed.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew exactly what colours I wanted but I decided to try different styles and colours to open up my options. I tried on many bridal lenghas at different stores all over Toronto but then I ended up getting my outfits over a video call at 3am while my dad was in India shopping around for me. I watched the store attendants try on outfits for me. In under an hour, I had outfits for my wedding and reception!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of wedding planning was food tasting! Food is one of the most important parts of the wedding and we wanted to ensure our all-vegetarian menu was a hit! Being able to explore different dishes and customize our options was really fun and delicious.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
That's a tough one, I've heard so much great feedback from our friends and family. I think one thing that everyone said was that they had a blast at the reception because the music was really good. And I couldn't agree more! The dance floor was packed from beginning to end. Koodos to our DJ!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment I sat down next to husband at our wedding ceremony definitely stands out. I was so anxious and stressed out until that moment. But when I sat next to him, he made a joke about me taking forever to get ready and I laughed and all the stressed melted away.
 
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 family all flew in from Trinidad, India, New Jersey and Florida for the wedding. The maticoor night which was the night before the wedding, was really special because it was an intimate event with just my closest family and friends. Everyone pitched in: my mom and aunts spent the entire day cooking all the delicious Trinidadian food, my cousins rehearsed our dance for the reception and my best friend helped me oversee my uncles decorating the entire house and setting up the stage. It was truly a special day.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There will always be a reason to stress out, there is always something that doesn't work out the way you planned, but at the end of the day, it's important to share the happy moments with those around you and cherish these memories. This is a happy time in your life! Be present, be happy and show gratitude to those around you that are sharing in your moments.

We hope you enjoyed this time as much as we did. And this is not it, as we have more for you. So visit us tomorrow for more.
