Welcome back ladies, today you will be dazzled by the wedding of Ami & Naishik thanks to the visual genius of Walk on Water, who immortalized the glorious events in a unique highlight reel you are about to see! This grand jubilee started with a solemn ceremony in the reflecting pool of the BAPS Mandir Atlanta, and it continued with a reception inside the luxurious halls of the Loews Atlanta Hotel! You will be enchanted with every detail that our friends from Mandap World conceived for the occasion, and that surrounded our lovebirds in both galas. So talented!

She flaunted a perfect hair and makeup combo thanks to Robin Shanael, and Shyamal & Bhumika provided the striking lehenga designs that mesmerized everyone from beginning to end. Make sure to come and witness all the beauty of this union for yourself in our footage today and don't forget to check all the fabulous snaps R.A.G.artistry captured of these couple's lovely day here

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was love as first sight. A July morning in 2011, we both laid eyes on each other across a crowded ballroom at the Loews Atlanta Hotel.
Surprisingly, fate brought us together to be introduced through a mutual friend during a night out on the town. That weekend, we found ourselves totally emerged in each other's stories while we snuck away from all other company to be alone.
In October 2018, we are held our wedding festivities in the same venue where we first met.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to a revolving restaurant in a sky-rise hotel in downtown Atlanta. He had a beautiful bouquet of roses and lilies (my favorite) waiting at the table. After our meal soaring above the Atlanta skyline, we walked around the viewing deck as he told me how much he adored me and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
 
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'm lucky to have such a large and supportive extended family. Everyone decided to do a family reunion in India during my wedding shopping. It felt so festive that the whole family was just as excited as I was for the events and upgrading their wardrobes.
Pinterest really helped me envision how I wanted every last detail of our wedding. Inspiration pictures showed me what I liked and didn't like in a cohesive decor. I wanted a timeless, yet elegant, style throughout my weekend.
Mandap World made many accommodations in order to assemble my exact vision. They helped me capture the perfect pastels for my Garba/Sangeet event, the simply grand decor for the wedding ceremony, and the innovative design for the Mehendi. I never wanted an outdoor wedding due to unpredictability of weather and discomfort of guests. But, my father convinced me that, during an auspicious event like this, what better place to have it than at God's doorsteps. So, we crossed our fingers and kept it outside. We were blessed with the most perfect weather that entire weekend.
  
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I have loved Shyamal & Bhumika and Sabyasachi styles for a long time. I wanted it to look royal - like a true maharani. The image I envisioned in my head was to be in an all ruby red dress dripping with gold accents and jewelry.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My favorite part was the decor planning. I am very creative and artistic. Therefore, I thoroughly enjoyed planning the decor details and color themes the most. It gave me a chance to let my creative juices flow into events that could be shared and appreciated by so many friends and family.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Guests loved the decor and the simplicity of events. We also made it a point to limit too far extended guests from being invited. This allowed us to connect and celebrate with the guests more informally and personally. Everyone truly felt close during the events.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Not many people have seen my dad cry. He has always had such a tough outer shell with a guarded, yet fun, personality. Ironically, during the events, his soft side was exposed and was so emotional. All the guests were teary, and shocked. As for me, my father and I have a soft spot for each other - after all, I am a daddy's girl.
 
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.
First dance song, "Breathless" by Shayne Ward - It was a sentimental choice; he sent it to me to tell me how he felt about me during our early years of dating.
Father-daughter dance, "Never Alone" by Lady Antebellum - My father had no idea about this song. But when I had him listen to the words, he immediately broke down saying 'it's perfect'. He's always known the perfect balance of tough love with nurturing love and guidance.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be very organized and don't leave details to the last minute! Also, assign a designated contact person that you trust to deal with specific issues that may arise (ie. transportation of guests, guest check-in at hotel, keeping up with the bar tab for reception, after party food/drinks, etc.). This will allow key family members to be more present and personable during the events.
 

A brand new wedding film tomorrow, ladies!

Philadelphia, PA Indian Wedding by Studio KSD

Good morning, loves! Time for another highlight film and this one is brought to us by the cinematic talent of Studio KSD, and that showcases the lavish days of Tulsi & Neel at The Kimmel Center. This unique performing arts center was vibing with the beautiful decors and flowers created by Royal Charms Floral and Decor, that just left me in awe! Especially for the soft color palette chosen for their elegant Hindu wedding ceremony. Maharani Tulsi was the queen of the celebrations flaunting a gorgeous maroon lehenga that matched the regal ensemble Raja Neel picked for the occasion, so amazing indeed! As we will see, our lovebirds danced along with the entertainment and musical skills of our good friends from Amplifire Entertainment  during their joyful reception to celebrate their milestone. For sure, they left everyone wanting for more! Don't forget to take a closer look at this unforgettable union in Philly, hit play now ladies! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was a series of brief interactions over 6 months. We first locked eyes on a party bus in San Francisco in August 2014. It wasn't until my best friend's (and future maid-of-honor) birthday party did Neel finally show his interest. He bought me a couple of distilled agave beverages and we had a night of pure fun with our closest friends. We were both incredibly confused how quickly we fell into a rhythm, but within a few months we took a quick trip to Hawaii. While on a hike, I picked a banana from a tree, got a terrible stomach ache, and said, "I love you, and I may need to go to a hospital".

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Neel and I were on a 3-month sabbatical at the time. I knew a proposal was coming on the trip but didn't know when or where. In early January, we found ourselves in Chiang Mai, Thailand. When we travel, we like to take a cooking class. He splurged on a cooking class at the Four Seasons Resort. In the 3rd and final dish we were preparing, a papaya salad, I found a ring. Unfortunately, the ring sizes are measured differently internationally and I found a ring large enough to fit a man's thumb. But there was Neel, asking me to marry him, and so confused that I missed the actual question and demanded he ask it again so I could take it in. Of course, I said yes. In fact, my best friend (maid-of-honor), flew to Thailand with the ring, as a surprise.

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.
Photography - This was easy. I knew I wanted to work with KSD based on seeing their craft in action at my cousins' weddings.
Hair & Make-up - Payal MUA. She worked so well with what I was looking to achieve, a modern bride with a hint of old-school bollywood cinema
Outfits - I was able to find all of my outfits within 1 day at Asopalav, in Gujarat, India.
Decor Theme - Royal Charms. Given everything about our relationship, our reception theme was appropriately Travel themed. This included table-cards with our favorite destinations, and mini suitcases.
Venue - We didn't want a typical banquet hall. That limited our choices already. We found the Kimmel Center of Philadelphia, and I just saw the wedding happen there. It was a reach, but we made it happen!
Catering - Garces Catering, through Kimmel Center. We worked with them to create a fusion South Asian and Western meals for all events. They're so creative and they did not disappoint.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We pinned on pinterest, bookmarked on google, and talked to numerous brides. When we got to India, everything was different and our research was practically useless. I was lucky to find all of my outfits on the 3rd day of the trip, in 1 sitting, at Asopalav. When you know, you know.

Neel, my husband, did not have such luck. We went to countless stores and shops. His Sangeet was specially designed and made by Paresh Lamba in Banglore, the Wedding outfit was from Asopalav in Gujarat, and a tux made in the US to the reception.

The bridesmaids and groomsmen was also made from scratch. I had a color in mind, but under serious dehydration and exhaustion we ended up with something completely different!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
This is likely the most obvious answer, but the food-tasting. It was one of the few parts of the planning that was only Neel & I. Food is the epicenter of our relationship (refer to pain-inducing banana, and proposal papaya salad). Neel's face lights up when he eats something absolutely delicious. It was incredible.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they enjoyed that the wedding was in city-center, Philadelphia. All of the weddings for our family and friends were at banquet halls. And if there's anything Neel & I are, its atypical to tradition. We opted to use the beautiful and historic Philadelphia skyline as our backdrop. Our guests enjoyed the backdrop as well!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look, but it wasn't the romance that's memorable. I was asked to walk up to Neel, who was facing away from me, and whisper something to him that would make him smile. I took it as an opportunity to make a fart joke. He did laugh so hard that he tripped over himself as he turned around and practically fell on me. It deflated all the stress of the day, immediately.

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 decided not to have a wedding cake. Instead we did the following:
1. At the Sangeet, I surprised Neel with a "grooms-cake", designed by me, highlighting some of the checkpoints in our relationship. It included the costume I wore on our first date (yes, a costume), poker cards for Neel, and even basketball. We also catered vegetarian cheesesteaks from the famous Campos Cheesesteaks in Philadelphia!
2. At the Reception, we ordered popular desserts from around the US. This includes: Lauderee Macaroons (NYC), Junior's Cheesecake, Prantl's almond torte, and many many more. It was a sugary feast.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
1. Schedule moments for you and your fiance/husband during the wedding week. You may fight, you may laugh, you may even sleep - but it's so important to maintain that connection leading up to the biggest moment in your relationship.
2. It's actually ok if something goes awry. You can't control it all, though I'm sure you'll try. But those "mistakes", often make the best stories! Those are the stories you'll remember.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
It's difficult to summarize details into a few words, but I'll list my greatest hits:
5. Favorite Dance: the entire Murthy family (Neel's dance) took part in a group dance. I mean EVERYONE.
4. Favorite Food: Garces Catering (through Kimmel Center) made a coconut macaron cake. Drool.
3. Favorite Song: Our first dance was a custom-mix of Lights Down Low by Maxx with bhangra beats.
2. Favorite speech: My brother's speech was so well-received, hitting the right balance of funny and sweet.
1. Favorite Moment: The First-look. We were both so stressed from the week of events. Having a moment just centered us. It was us in our purest form.

Stick around Maharanis, more highlight reels are on it's way!
