Marjan Island, UAE Indian Fusion Wedding by Rose Life Studio

Maharanis, today we will be making a trip all the way to the United Arab Emirates! Our charming couple, Dweenisha & Sheilesh, gave us a tease of their voluptuous wedding celebration at the DoubleTree by Hilton Resort & Spa Marjan Island. This luxuriant resort has everything its clients could ever wish for, and our couple fell head-over-heels with its breathtaking views and top-quality services. Dweenisha & Sheilesh ceremony took place at the resort's private beach, surrounded by their loved ones and the grand ocean and its pleasant breeze. What a lovely way to start their new life together. I do not doubt that the whole family enjoyed their holidays and celebrated with the sweethearts, all while Vidira Concept's fantastic crew took care of the design and decor for the wedding. These professionals delivered marvelous bouquets for the celebration with the same shades the bride and groom chose for their attires. Our couple had several looks throughout each of the events, combining traditional red and yellow colors and a soft sky blue. Later on, going for a magnificent black and sparkling dressing for the reception. The marvelous Dweenisha had Neha Shah and Geeta Masani embellish her even more! Our bride's gorgeous features were radiant as ever, with her sun-kissed skin glowing as bright as her love for Sheilesh. The handsome groom had some tricks of his own with his elegant tuxedo and shining smile. Their charm is unbelievable, dears! Just as apparent as their devotion. I am sure you are as excited as one can be to see the impressive shots Rose Life Studio took. They wonderfully captured the peak moments of this wedding, and we have them available for you in this impeccable gallery, my beloved Maharanis. You will be enamored!

Queens, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Artistry Captures

We have a one-of-a-kind love story for today, queens! Let's unveil Leena & Rani's celebration, shall we? These sweethearts literally made history with their union commemorated at Shri Shakti Mariammaa Temple, one of the first same-sex couples to get married in a Hindu temple, and we have all the details for you, Maharanis! This lovely celebration was one of a kind, with a cozy gathering at the Shandon Court venue. This heartwarming place was faultless for keeping the revelry going after an emotional and fulfilling wedding ceremony. Our Maharanis delighted their guests with a tasty cake from Magaly's Cakes and a dreamy ambiance courtesy of the skillful Zro The Dj. But enough about the scenery, ladies, we have two gorgeous Maharanis to lavish about for hours! Both Leena & Rani looked dapper with their stylish attires. The enchanting red tones made Leena sparkle throughout the day, and Rani was a princess with her traditional yet fashionable choice. The fabulous bridal fashion from Leena's boutique was perfect for this unforgettable day, and, of course, our Maharanis had a fantastic team in charge of their hair and make-up. While Bexxalicious Beauty outdid themselves with our couples' look for the ceremony, Blend by Lisa did too for the reception. Completing their demeanor with HennaDready by Natalia's heavenly mehndi art, the lovebirds dazzled more than one. Regardless of the moment, our Maharanis were a sight to behold! And we have a picturesque gallery that will take us behind the clever Artistry Captures' lenses for this fascinating wedding. So remember, my dear Maharanis, as the marvelous Leena said: Love prevailed!

Raleigh, NC Indian Fusion Wedding by Perry Vaile Photography

Good morning, everyone. I hope your morning is as beautiful as you are! How about we start the day with a dose of romance with today's love story, courtesy of Shantha & Aneesh. These lovebirds started their forever in the best way possible. With a grand bash surrounded by all their loved ones! There are so many details that made this celebration stand out, but one that cannot go unnoticed is the sensational work of Harmony Weddings & Events with the planning and design. This one was a gorgeous wedding, ladies, and our Maharani got to enjoy every moment thanks to the professional team behind the scenes, keeping every aspect in check. Of course, a magnificent event deserves magnificent invites, and our couple trusted Customizing Creativity's capable hands to make and design their invitations. I am sure all the guests will keep their invites as a small token of a grand day! The newlyweds were confident that the most important thing for them was serenity. By choosing Pavilion at Carriage Farm, they ensured that everyone had an intimate instant while celebrating their union. Wild Flora Farm's gorgeous decor complemented the lovely open space. These are some of the most beautiful bouquets I have ever seen! Darlings, but nothing was as beautiful as Shantha. Our Maharani was undeniably divine with the gorgeous hair and makeup by Bella FacciaThe delicate Mehdi Henna by NeenaJain did was as magnificent as her clothing and combined perfectly with Kushal's Fashion Jewellery's elegant touch. Our couple delighted everyone not only with their style but also with delicious cuisine. Even the pickiest palate was pleased with delicacies, from a tasty Italian dinner at The Laurelbrook to a mouthwatering crepe tower from The Crepe Cakerie. Shantha & Aneesh were incredibly thoughtful. Even the live music from Udeshi Hargett and The Lost Strings was excellent to accompany each moment of their journey to marriage. The precious memories created during this charming wedding were perfectly photographed by the brilliant Perry Vaile Photography and are available for you in this gallery. Maharanis, you'll love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Aneesh through my very close family friend who happens to be Aneesh's first cousin. After spending time with Aneesh, I quickly understood that I had never met someone as kind, grounded and respectful as him and knew wedding bells were in our future. Our meeting will always remain so special because we were joined by someone very close to both of us.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Aneesh and I had made plans to spend a few days in Lake Tahoe with his parents around Christmas. At least, that's what I thought... As we drove from San Francisco to the Tahoe airport to pick up his parents, they texted that their flight was delayed. Aneesh rerouted us to a restaurant that we visited on our first trip together a year prior. After a lovely lunch, we walked out on the pier listening to a medley of our favorite songs before Aneesh got down on one knee. Afterwards, I walked into an airbnb filled with close friends, family and most importantly, both sets of parents. It was a night to remember.

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.
Aneesh and I are planners! We love attention to detail and wanted our wedding weekend to be an incredible experience for all our guests. After putting a lot of thought into the location and venue style of our events, we decided on Raleigh, NC and The Pavilion at Carriage Farm for the ceremony. It was important that we incorporate indoor and outdoor space for all of our events. The pandemic hit soon after we started planning and we were forced to plan our wedding during the pandemic from across the country. The best decision we ever made was hiring our wedding planner, Aneesa Glines. She was able to take care of everything we could not due to distance. She encouraged our creative minds to come up with everything we desired and executed every idea seamlessly. Instead of hiring a decor company, we worked together to design each and every event and relied on excellent vendors to bring our designs to life.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I am a huge fan of neutrals and wanted to look and feel as much of myself as possible. My mom helped me find a beautiful deep cream silk saree that suited me, and a designer that I love in Bangalore, India helped create a stunning blouse to complement it.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The details and working with our vendors! We had a LONG list of amazing vendors that fostered our creativity. We loved creating our wedding stationery, specifically the ceremony program filled with games! We enjoyed handwriting our reception seating cards and coming up with fun clues for our guests. Even helping our caterers come up with unique ways of serving food was enjoyable. I could go on and on about the details!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I can't speak on behalf of our guests, but I think everyone loved the close-knit family feeling we maintained across the weekend. The hotel was the perfect size and made everyone feel like they were staying at a large home. The event venues were the large enough to accommodate our guests while still giving that intimate feel.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Walking into the reception hall before our guests arrived and seeing our decor ideas come to life was so exciting. Aneesh and I practiced our first dance alone in the venue and we felt a sense of joy and peace that I can't describe. We were married and all that was left was to have fun and spend time with our guests.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The more prep work you do ahead of time, the more you can truly be present and enjoy your weekend! Hire a reliable wedding planner!

I hope you loved this entry, dears. I'll see for the next love story!

Ypsilanti, MI Indian Wedding by Joseph Kang Photography

Good morning my beautiful ladies! A new week has just begun, and I am as excited as always to give you some much-needed inspiration to have a fantastic day. Today's protagonists are the sweet Aarthee & Vivek, a lovely couple head-over-heels with each other. The lovebirds had an unbelievable wedding that absolutely blew me away! Utsav Planners,Inc. truly outdid themselves with this one. Not only was their planning impeccable, but the decor and splendid bouquets they designed were stunning. This and the charming venue at Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest brought our couple's vision to life. Not only did our couple have a blast, but their guests did, too, thanks to the ambiance Dj Naveen Productions and Event Lighting created. What a joyful moment for all! Ladies, let me tell you about our gorgeous Aarthee. She looked as magnificent as you can imagine. Our Maharani took everyone's breath away, including mine! From the ideal accessories to her flawless attires and the delicate mehndi Henna Beauty By Krupa did for her. And her soulmate, Vivek, didn't miss a beat. His luxurious yet traditional clothing was perfect! Together, they remind me of my favorite romantic movies, with a promise of forever and a hint of sweetness that only the purest of hearts can manage. Trust me, Maharanis, when you see the pictures Joseph Kang Photography captured of these two, you'll feel all the adoration and love between them. So, be my guests and boost your imagination with this marvelous gallery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him my freshmen year at the University of Michigan at a house party with mutual friends. I knew he was the one-two weeks in because he laughed at all my jokes but was always all too ready to give me a reality check when my head got too big. Also when I realized he takes shots for breakfast.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He proposed on his birthday because it was the only day I wouldn’t suspect a proposal. He took me to Arlington Race Track and all our friends and family surprised us there. Until he got down on one knee, I thought he was still making a super extra birthday speech at a cake-cutting ceremony.

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 got engaged in 2017 with a 2020 wedding date that got pushed to 2021 due to COVID but we still were able to have all our closest friends and small there. Our wedding was planned by Utsav Planners and they were able to bring life to all our dreams and visions for the wedding. My hair artist Aysha Riaz and makeup artist Jahura Hobby KILLED it and made me look and feel better than I could have ever imagined. I had six outfits and had to change halfway through the wedding ceremony because we did a North Indian and South Indian ceremony. We started with a Mehndi Saturday morning that was a Michigan tailgate theme to honor where we met so there were tailgate games like corn hole and flip cup and we had flip cup contests between the parents.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India and was actually looking for a white lehenga but couldn’t find anything I liked. I finally went to a store in Ahmedabad (Aso Palav) and after the 600th dress they brought out, I finally found a blush pink and lavender lehenga that I knew was the one.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Most enjoyable part was writing individual notes for every single one of our guests that we used as part of the reception table cards. We were able to show everyone how we appreciated them coming and celebrating with us and it my husband and I had a great time roasting some people who may or may not have been expecting it.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they loved the Michigan tailgate mehndi because it was a fun event to kick off the celebrations and it really represented who we were as a couple. I think they also loved the individual notes that we made. They definitely loved all the speeches made my our bridal party and family because it was so light, funny, and roasted me and my husband. And lastly, I would think they loved that everything somehow happened on time and without any glitches.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
At the end of our sangeet, we played a song that was really special to me (uff Teri Ada) and me and my husband got on the stage and everyone was dancing on the dance floor. It was when I finally realized I was at my wedding and everyone I loved was in the room celebrating with me.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Keep your bridesmaids close, enjoy the little moments, and don’t forget to take time to eat or drink when you can! This is your event so you can never be late, everyone else is just early :)

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The venue was at the Eagle Crest Marriott in Ypsilanti Michigan which is a beautiful gold course. Mehndi was done by Henna Beauty by Krupa. We didn’t have a cake but did a tiered cake pop structure and did boozy cupcakes which were such a hit.

Alright, Maharanis, I hope you enjoyed this story. Keep coming back for more romances!
