Columbus, OH Indian Fusion Wedding by Seth & Beth Photography

We are so glad to have you back, darlings! We have arrived at the third and final part of Grace & Pran's big wedding festivities. This time, we'll be heading down inside the halls of the Franklin Park Conservatory to take part in the elegant and luxurious reception party that marked the end of these wedding festivities! The entire room of this enchanting venue overflowed with so much beauty. Still, nothing even compared to the fabulous look of our gorgeous Maharani, who burst into the room looking like a princess dressed in a white dress from Blue Bridal Boutique. She looked so ravishing that more than one of the guests dropped a couple of tears of happiness when seeing her incommensurable beauty! To turn this reception into a full-flair party, our lovebirds decided to bring Safety Squad on board. And what a great decision it was because they enliven every moment of this gala putting everyone on their feet. All the guests had a great time dancing, celebrating, and tasting the delicious food from Amar India Restaurant and Hilton Columbus at Easton, right before enjoying the sweet desserts from Le Gateau. And before we let this lovely duo followed their way into their happily ever after, we want to give a big shout to Seth & Beth Photography for sharing the magnificent shots they captured during this entire wedding celebration. Thanks to their remarkable work, we can enjoy the full gallery below. And believe us, you cannot miss it out. It is breathtaking!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in college. We started dating in 2011. It was hard for me to think about forever so it took about 6 years for me to be comfortable with the idea of marriage.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I make surprises very difficult and figured out what his plan was going to be so he double crossed me and proposed the weekend before in jersey city on the waterfront with our dog and a book mark (that he slipped into the current book I was reading with the ring tied to it) saying we’re 7 chapters in and I love where this story is going... will you marry me?
 
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.
Honestly I did not want a huge wedding but my parents did. I’m a big proponent of doing things right or not doing it at all. Since I’ve never really dreamed of a huge wedding or any particular details I just wanted to make sure we hired professionals that I could trust to make the big decisions for me. I can’t say enough amazing things about our vendors. Valley regency has been in the business for a long time and knows how to throw a beautiful party. Lax states (Nisha) is truly an artist. She took something I had no interest in (the decor) and made it into a theme that actually felt like home. Maliha Khan is the sweetest and most talented makeup artist - I’m not a makeup expert and I needed someone who would take the outfit and my face into consideration and she did just that. I feel like I didn’t have to make many big decisions because my vendors were amazing.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I got married in November so it had to be long. For the ceremony I wanted some white in it. I found a beautiful gold lengha in India and they switched out the gold satin for white. I was happy. I bought my reception dress from India too but then I realized I didn’t love it so I bought another gown from a local NYC boutique.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Small details that I wanted to incorporate like a table to represent our love for our dog Belle, a memorial table, signs for the photobooth, pictures of us
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The most compliments I received were probably about the details I mentioned above and the food.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Before the reception we had a mini cocktail hour in the bridal suite and I actually got to spend a little time with my best friends and family.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Vendors can make or break your wedding. Choose carefully but then let the professionals do their job.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Just incase you were wondering my husband is of Korean decent. He has a small family and did not have any Korean traditions that were important to them but his parents were great sports during the events.

Sydney, Australia Indian Wedding by Rolling Canvas

Hello there, darlings! Hitika & Sagar's big wedding festivities are almost getting over, but there is still time to have some fun at their fantastic reception party hosted at the Dockside Darling Harbour. Following the line of traditional flair and amazingness that we saw in all other events, Shagun Events designed a marvelous decor that left everyone speechless. Hitika & Sagar attended this closing gala looking elegantly and fashionably, making their first appearance in an epic entrance between fireworks from All Occasion Pyrotechnics. All the guests had a great time celebrating this life milestone to the beats of DJ Bali, who played the best Bollywood hits. The only time the guests stopped dancing was to enjoy the delicious plates prepared by Taj Catering right before having a bite at the sweet cake baked by Falguni Cakes Oran Park. Hands down, this was the dreamy reception party Hitika & Sagar always wanted, and the best way to bring the wedding festivities to an end. If you can't get enough of this lovely couple and want to relive every moment of this fantastic wedding ceremony, make sure to visit the full gallery that we have prepared for today. We've compiled the best shots captured by Rolling Canvas for your enjoyment. You will get tons of inspiring ideas from it.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I first met him when I was 6 years old, we reconnected in 2014 again and I knew he was the one when we first started talking after many years as we couldn't stop talking and at one point we talked for 14 hours non stop (no food, no break). That day when we hung up the call, I felt so heavy, I did not want to hang up. That feeling was assurance, he is it.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I proposed. So Sagar is a bit slow sometimes, this one day (5 years ago) I felt like, If not now then it would never happen. So we were in India, I had a rikshaw vala arranged by a florist and told them I will propose a guy and you will be on youtube (rickhsaw vala was very happy to participate to be famous). I had the rickshaw decorated. Had a friend bring Sagar to a quiet garden where we parked the rickshaw and I then proposed him. He was obviously in shock, but was a memorable day.
 
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 stared 2 years in advance. I knew I wanted my phere/ceremony on the cruise so we went boat hunting for months. Finally came across Aussie Magic Boat from All Occasion cruises and booked them 12 months in advance. We then decided to have a reception hall not far from the city as the cruise wouldn't go anywhere else. So we decided on a route. Baraat at Opera, aboard cruise from ManOwar steps, ceremony under the bridge and by the Opera in water. Cruise took us to Darling Harbour, we had the Pyrmont bridge open for us with Music and reception at Dockside.
Outfits were also in planning froma  year in advance, Most of them were sketched and designed by mum, me, dad and Sagar, all our outfits are our own creation. We had followed a theme for all events so most of them are themed.  We had my two Lehengas (one wedding in sydney and next one in Delhi) from Frontierraas but we made many changes on those lehengas including changing their dupattas too and Sagar's outfits were designed by us again to match those.
MUH for all events except the wedding was Geeta Makeup Atristy. Wedding day was Sana
Decor was by the lovely Dee from Shagun events. My garlands were amazingly done by Sai Garlands. DJ was DJ Bali, All other reception vendors were by Dockside group and Catering was also matched to the theme of colours and was by Taj.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My parents went to Chennai first, got some ideas there but couldnt connect. Most of my sarees for pot bridal wear were from Chennai, including different silks and Organzas. But both my lehengas were from Frontier raas, since I had two wedding I was lucky to have worn but my dream colours for my wedding which is maroon burgundy in Sydney and Peach Pink in Delhi. Both are subtle colours and are designed in a way that I can wear them again with anything else such as a saree.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Designing dresses, sketching, making themes, getting everyone's outfit matched as per themes. We even had food matches with theme colours. So on Haldi we had shades of sunrise as a theme, and most food was yellow and orange.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The detailing and thoughts into it and the locations. We had our pre-wedding functions in Annangrove/dural area in an acreage property. People could stay till late and music was till late with no restrictions. Most importantly we had no alcohol, and guests enjoyed being in the moment
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I was on the Jet Ski for my Bridal entry on the cruise and I saw Sagar with a content, happy and proud face.
 
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.
One big special detail was - we changed all traditions and rituals to keep equality. No gifts were exchanged within families. Hindu rituals where we bride had to vow certain things that promoted patriarchy were edited to a newer more suitable version to respect the rituals in the true essence we will follow.
As for the decor - most of it was done by Dee - she also made sure theme was followed for all three pre -wedding functions which was - shades of sunrise - Shades of Ivory and - Shades of Peacock.
Some of it was done by my cousin who is a graphics designer and my sister who is purely awesome.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Please dont waste money on expensive lehengas. It hurts so badly to see "sabyasachi bride" "Manish Bride", Just because you spend $10,000 on one outfit that you wont wear again (Especially if its one of those bright red lehengas) and your one photo featured on an instagram page. Find your value for money. Dont get carried away with brands and what's more famous. Check to see genuinity and its value in all respects.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My Mhenedi was - Shraddha Henna - She is absolutely into detail, My mehendi was special as she drew a rikshaw and all other places we had visited while dating in my mehendi,
My 3 tier, butterscoth, hazelnut and chocolate cake was elegant and eggless.
My reception dress sketched, material bought from different shops in sydney and stitched in sydney was nearly 50m of clothing with its weight nearly 8-10 kilos. Same with Sagar's double breasted suit that was custom designed and stitched in under $400. Garlands were an absolute delight.

That is all for today, ladies! See you tomorrow for more.

Flushing, NY Indian Wedding by Ajit Photography

Welcome back, Maharanis! We have arrived at Meeta & Aman's grand wedding finale with a fabulous reception party hosted at the Leonard's Palazzo that will leave you speechless. So don't think twice and join us at this enchanting event! Right from the start, we have to say that this closing gala seemed like taken out from a fairytale as it was full of charm, luxury, and glamour. A perfect example of how fantastic everything turned out, is the mesmerizing looks of our gorgeous Maharani, who captivated everyone with two ravishing looks that we loved so much! For the first part of this reception, she wore a fashionable attire from Shakuntalm, very well complemented by the gorgeous jewelry from Much More, and we cannot stress how much we loved this opening look. However, it only gets better! For the second part of this gala, Meeta changed her attire, wearing a blue lengha with embroidery from Ejaaz Couture that, along with the jewelry from ReetCreationsNY, made her look like a princess. Both of these attires praised Meeta's natural beauty and combined to perfection with the heels from Thalia Sodi's collection. The elegant and fashionable looks of this lovely duo didn't keep them from dancing the night away to the beats of DJ Amit Kapoor, who turned this gala into a party. All the guests had a great time tasting the delicious plates prepared by Benares Restaurant & Catering and the sweet cake from Francesco's Bakery right before this gala ended. Relive this entire celebration taking a look at all the shots by Ajit Photography in today's gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through one of our mutual friends, when I met him he wasn't the type of a guy I thought I would end up marrying. I didn't know what I want in life. We started talking through snapchat and on our first meeting "alone" which was at Starbucks, my first line to him was "this is not a date and I'm not looking for a relationship." He understood me in a way that no one could. He knew what I was feeling and what I wanted/needed every time. We talked 24x7 yet I still didn't understand what our relationship was until months later.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Haha it was totally unexpected. One of his friend was getting married in November and he had told me that there's a special dinner that she invited us to (this is in September). SOO I was like okay I'll come with you (he had told me about this dinner end of July/August). During that weekend, I asked him should I get my nails done he's like yes and then I was like nahhhh it's just a dinner. He had told me to pick him up around 5 PM so I thought to myself that maybe he just wants to drink a little since it's his friend's wedding so I was like sure why not. It was a Sunday around 1 PM he really wasn't talking to me. I wore a casual mahroon dress and went to pick him up. He was matching me (which is usually always our thing). He told me that we need to go get something in his car so I was like okay (I'm thinking flowers or gift for his friend for this dinner). He blindfolds me when we get in the car. There are many things going on in my mind and so many questions that I kept asking him. I even asked him "are you proposing me, no wait you're not because you know I have to have my nails done for that, did you get a new car?" He's like yes that's it I got a new car. He made me get out of the car and I feel sand all around my heels and I asked him the car is at the beach? He said Yes. I could hear the waves/ocean and I can't swim so I asked him are we going in the water because I'm getting scared now. He's like relax. He told me to stand in a particular place and he said I'll be right back. Few minutes later I said "I hear music.." He tells me to remind my blindfold and I see him standing there few feet away past the alley that is filled with rose petals near the champagne table with I love You balloons held up against the table on the sand. He was standing in a huge heart filled with red sand outline with more rose petals in it and the song playing was Tum Hi Ho....that was the perfect moment. :)
 
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 February of 2019 few months after he proposed to me. I wanted this day to be perfect because we both knew that this will be one of the most important days of our lives. We decided to do mehndi/sangeet at my house because we wanted as much intimacy as possible between our families. We don't have a big family in New York and most of our relatives live back in India. We didn't hire any planner since we wanted to be involved as much as we can so we decided to do this together. We had an idea of how we wanted things to be but the hardest part was probably making a guest list and picking the venues. I'm so thankful to him for dealing with my indecisiveness and helping me throughout the journey. Picking my makeup/hair artist was easy because I knew that there would be no one better than Tamanna to do my makeup. When we went to visit World's Fair Marina for our wedding venue it happened to be the perfect setting because of it's location (right by the water - since Aman proposed to me at the beach). When we went to see Leonard's, there was no turning back. We did go to see many venues after that but my heart was set on Leonard's which Aman made it happen as well. Rest were the details. Since having done Antun's by Minar for our engagement we knew we had to do something best in terms of food and Benares was the best option. We had to pick Amit for DJ due to his awesomeness and how much people loved him from our engagement. It was really stressful. I wanted a traditional wedding and formal reception. For the wedding everyone wore indian attire (including all our guests).
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted to get a lehenga that my mom would like/her preference. We went to many stores in India. I knew I wanted a red/mahroon lehenga because that's my favorite cold and that's what my mom wanted as well. She was the one who picked my lehenga for me after I refused sooo many. I finally fell in love with this designer store in Shahpur Jat called Arjun Arora Couture. My mom loved the color/design on me and that's the one we picked. :)
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Going to see different vendors, interacting with them, and just knowing we were getting married. We enjoyed going to bridal expos and enjoying the food. Also, our families support was a major thing in the planning process.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
FOOD, Music, Decor, Everything. :)
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The morning of our wedding and our first look up to my Vidaai. All those moments were precious to me that hold a special place in my heart.
 
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 wanted to do a special dance and it worked out perfectly. Will post a video on our youtube channel soon. :)
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Relax and Enjoy those moments you spend planning for your wedding they are stressful but they won't come back.

We are back, beauty queens! We have arrived at Ramya & Neel's grand reception party held inside the halls of The Resort at Pelican Hill, so get ready to have some fun!
