Serbia, Turkey & India Indian Fusion Wedding by CineLove

Happy Monday, beauty queens! A full weekend without your company feels like an eternity, but we are so excited to be back so we can continue sharing our passion for fantastic wedding celebrations! And today's featured wedding is nothing less than spectacular. It is so unique and filled with surprises that we can firmly say that this is unlike any other wedding that we have witnessed in quite a while. For starters, Bobana & Ansh's fairytale had three different destinations: Serbia, Turkey, and India. How amazing is that! Every event of this wedding was mesmerizing as breathtaking, and we find ourselves lost of words to describe the jaw-dropping attires and the swoon-worthy set-ups conceptualized and styled by none other than Meha Bhargava of Styl.Inc. The celebrations started with a heavenly Christian ceremony in Belgrade Serbia, which is Bobana's hometown. And oh boy, this opening ceremony was to die for! From the captivating decor crafted by Svadbena zvona to the ravishing look of our gorgeous couple, everything was amazing! The festivities continued in Antalya, Turkey, where they had a 3-day long, Indian wedding. A colorful Haldi, a fun-loving Mehndi, and a vibrant Sangeet were just the preamble for the full-traditional Indian wedding ceremony held at the Titanic Mardan Palace. This paradisiacal venue, which combines traditional architecture and a soothing natural environment, added an extra touch of uniqueness to this event, becoming the perfect backdrop for these lovebirds to profess their love and commitment to each other. The wedding festivities concluded with an unforgettable reception held at the Mor Bagh - New Delhi, where All in Organization & Events took care of the decor, and Manish Puri enlivened every moment with upbeat melodies. Hands down, Bobana & Ansh's had the wedding of their dreams! And this could not have been possible without a highly talented and experienced team like the one Bobana & Ansh's had by their side. So big kudos to Chapter 2 Events for the on-point planning and execution, Anjie Gogna for the ravishing look created for our gorgeous Maharani and CineLove for the marvelous shots that made this feature possible! Visit today's gallery for a full revel of this wedding!

With the sea and the sunset as the background, and with the lovely ornaments and floral arrangements put together by Tai Flora Luxe, Chandni & Priyank could not have asked for a more perfect scenario to tie the knot in the company of their family and friends. They both looked incredibly happy, relaxed, and in love, that captivated everyone's attention. Still, it was our gorgeous Maharani who stole the show as she looked ravishing dressed in a soft colored lengha that made her look like a princess from a fairytale. And we cannot forget about the sleek hairstyle and makeup that Shimmer Studios created for this occasion, and the artistic Mehndi designed by Henna by Divya, they were both spectacular! After the ceremony, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds with a fabulous reception party hosted at Blue Lagoon, and by taking a look at the pictures of this closing gala, we can tell that everyone had the time of their lives!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I was visiting family in London England, and took a day to wonder the city. I got lost at the train station trying to find my platform, bumped into Priyank(groom) asked him for directions. He walked me to the platform and asked me for my number. I denied it and gave him my Instagram. He slid into my DM’s and we began chatting. He flew to Toronto to see me about 3 months later to see if this would work, about the 4th day into his visit I just knew this was it.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We took a trip to italy. We spent 10 days wandering different parts. He waiting u too the last day of our trip. We were in Venice, he proposed on a gondola ride. It was magical.
 
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 knew I wanted Shimmer Studios for my makeup, as I’ve had her doll me up for my sisters wedding. No one else came to mind. Henna by Divya is an amazing henna artist and ever since I discovered her I knew when I got married she’d be the one. I almost didn’t recognize myself I looked so good . My henna was everything I dreamed of, the colour was dark, the design was everything I wanted. Both artist out did my expectations.
 
The resort i has only seen through pictures, I was a little nervous about how everything would turn out. My wedding planner from the resort  was amazing, when we got there she toured us around all the venues and asked us if we were satisfied. The decor I chose I just sent pictures of ideas but they put did themselves. Everything was exactly how I wanted and more.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I didn’t want to go tradition red and gold, when I went to Mumbai to do my shopping i saw it in the 2nd store I went into and just knew that it was the one.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Most enjoyable part was planning the reception and the dances.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The vibe at the resort was amazing. Everyone from both sides got along well. The food was great. There was never a dull moment, everyone’s needs were catered to. One thing we did that everyone appreciated was incorporate Everyone into all of the events so everyone had a part in the wedding.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The reception would be my most memorable moment, after the reception everyone jumped off the balcony into the pool.
 
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.
The Decor at the reception was Gorgeous! I knew from the pictures that it would be nice but seeing it in person even I was in awe of it. The dances at the reception were amazing. The entire wedding party did a surprise dance for myself and the groom, I watch that video almost everyday. My sister and brother in-law did a story line dance that outlined our entire relationship and it was amazing.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t set expectations. It’ll set you up for disappointment. Plan everything with a cool and calm mind, and trust your instincts. Enjoy EVERY moment because it goes by so quickly.
 
That is all for today, darlings! Have a great weekend full of love and inspiring ideas, and don't forget to join us on Monday for more!

Rajasthan, India Indian Wedding by Vows and Tales

Good morning, beauty queens! We are starting this Tuesday with a trip to India. Yes, you read right: India! Today, we are heading over to Rajasthan, India, to take part in Shalini & Rishi's 3-day wedding festivities. So, get yourselves ready, because what is coming right ahead will take your breath away! There is something extra special about weddings that take place in India that never ceases to amaze us. Maybe it is the fact that they are full of flair and traditions, or perhaps it is the fact that seeing a love story come to life in the very same place where our dearest traditions started is mindblowing. We really don't know! What we do know is that today's love story will make your inspiration fly, and your hearts melt with tenderness and joy, so let's don't wait any longer and get ready to be amazed! Let's start by taking a look at the mesmerizing wedding ceremony held at the surroundings of the Joypur Bansi Resort. This striking venue, which also hosted the Sangeet and the reception party, was the perfect place for Shalini & Rishi to tie the knot. There was so much beauty overflowing from every single scene of the ceremony that anywhere you looked, it had perfection written all over the place. Same perfection and beauty that we found in our gorgeous Maharani. She donned a traditional but glamorous lengha designed by Papa Don't Preach By Shubhika, and walked down the aisle looking like a goddess! It was a perfect moment, where everyone sighed and dropped a couple of tears of joy over so much beauty. And we want to give a big shoutout to Shraddha Luthra and Sunita Pawar for taking such good care of Shalini's beauty needs. Their spectacular work is so impressive, and we cannot stress how much we loved it. But that is not all! Shalini went a little further to achieve her dreamed bridal look and got marvelous pieces of jewelry from Ra Abta by Rahul Luthra and a fabulous Mehndi designed by Deepa Mehandi Art. After the ceremony, there was an epic reception party that marked the end of the wedding festivities, and it was so spectacular that we found ourselves lost in words to describe it. Thankfully, the good friends from Vows and Tales were there to capture all the amazingness. Dive into this fabulous celebration by visiting today's gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I wrote a short story about us, would like to share it here.

A ‘Just In Time’ Love Story

As most of the best relationships go, Rishi and I were introduced through mutual friends. From our first date in a small italian restaurant, to a romantic surprise proposal full of champagne and best friends in NYC’s Central Park Bow Bridge, our love story was the fairytale every girl dreams of.

While there were months of being physically apart and plenty of arguments due to many cultural differences, our love story is one for the modern age.

Several years ago, my sister settled in the US and ever since, my heart and spirit were torn. My heart will forever belong to India but my spirit wanted to achieve something wonderful in the land of opportunity. Rishi was the answer to a question I never asked.

God’s timing is a mysterious thing and one needs to have faith in it

From Rishi’s surprise trip to India early in our relationship, to our Iceland and Paris vacations, to my parents surprising us in Los Angeles, We were blessed with the hand of God gently guiding us throughout. This followed our engagement in LA in the presence of our loved ones.

Our The-Day was here!!

I have always wanted a wedding full of memories, traditions, much fun with our loved ones.. much before this had planned it all!
Just days before the world went under lockdown, We lived our Dream, a magnificent Destination Wedding in Jaipur, India- full of many loved ones who braved COVID-19 to celebrate our union.
Just the way I dreamt my wedding to be! I am and will be forever thankful to the ones who were part creating these moments.

Now, quarantined together in Santa Monica, California - looking through our incredible pictures by Vows & Tales and waking up to such beautiful posts by bloggers from across, is reliving those memories.

Realizing how many couples have had to postpone their wedding celebrations - I want to share a small piece of advice. Love is more important than any celebration - but a wedding celebration is about the people - so, if you can - wait and do it right.

Hang in there and lots of love,
-Shalini

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
RED. The only thing I was sure about is - Wanted to keep my wedding lehanga red. Red color may be played out or something that brides have been wearing since centuries but I needed no modern twist there, Specially when Pastels are trending, I still wanted to have a red lehanga which could look very traditional and royal for the ceremony but since I was wearing my lehanga for the reception too after the sunset Pheeras, I needed something that could look very royal for the ceremony and classy as well as chic for the reception.
I instantly fell in love with my outfit when I tried the Rimple and Harpreet's beautiful design. I did not even try any other design.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
You never enjoy planning your own wedding.
Being an event planner myself, planning my own wedding and whole process was extremely stressful.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Guest had A LOT OF FUN. All they did was - dress up, dance, drink and eat.
They enjoyed pretty much everything- from the world's cuisines personally curated for each event according to theme, dancing till 8AM every night, interesting and unique themes of events. All 4 days for them were total madness and fun. And last but not the least the gorgeous cake is something they still talking about.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
On my D day - The moment when I saw my groom and when Rishi saw his bride. The connection and that eye contact between me and Rishi was the most amazing feeling ever. The moment I would cherish for life. It's a feeling that can't be put in word.

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.
The whole wedding was inspired by Peacocks and elephants that includes the Mandap decor, the favours, cutleries, Decor, My mehendi and even my LEHENGA. This was because Rishi loves elephants and I adore peacocks.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
YOU should be the one to have the most fun in your wedding. So enjoy to the fullest.
ALWAYS HAVE A SMILE. They say is right, happy brides are the prettiest
Start taking extra care of your skin from the day you decide to get married lol

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We had a Royal Welcome dinner at one of the most beautiful forts in India - Amer Fort, Jaipur which was the start of the events. - Gazal Nights followed by my mehendi.
Rainbow Mehandi the next day.
Rishi's Haldi
Cocktail Night - For which I designed my gown myself, My train was approx 8 Mts long.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
This tale begins around two years ago when the couple first exchanged a harmless follow on Instagram. Seeing the sweet, sensible and cultured photos on Harustat’s page, Rustam knew she was the perfect type of girl for him. He also knew a direct approach would get him nowhere so he started a conversation about Harustat’s dog Rex, a topic he knew would spark some good conversation. Talking about this special pupper lead to a conversation about various topics whereby they discovered this casual conversation could actually lead somewhere.

Upon discussing this with family, a first meeting was set and Rustam boarded the next flight to Adelaide. Butterflies flying around in the stomach and goosebumps everywhere, they approached each other in person for the first time. Spending some quality time with one another and Harustat’s family in the peaceful city of Adelaide, the couple realised their intuition was correct, and their relationship progressed to the next step.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After careful and coordinated research (and the assistance from both sides of the family), Rustam planned the perfect proposal for Harustat. Many factors had to align to create the perfectly envisioned proposal, including weather, availability of the helicopter operator, cameraman and cinematographer, all whilst keeping Harustat completely unaware. Three days of torrential rain forced Rustam to make multiple conference calls to the vendors to reschedule this grand event. After countless reschedules, the special day arrived where all vendors worked in perfect harmony to create a magical surprise proposal.

Harustat was blindfolded and told she would see some wonderful native wildlife on a secret mountain. She was told the helicopter was being shared with the cameraman and cinematographer as this was the only flight available due to the nonstop rain. Being an avid wildlife lover, she believed every bit of it and was more than ready to pat some baby animals.

Upon landing, Rustam placed her down in amongst a heart of rose petals on the lush green grass on the mountainous terrain in Queenstown, New Zealand. When she opened her eyes, to her surprise, was her man down on one knee asking for her hand in marriage. In complete awe and excitement, a ‘YES’ was proclaimed from Harustat and a sigh of relief was achieved after many days of tormenting confusion as to why her partner was constantly on the phone when they were supposed to be on their holiday together.

This auspicious occasion was topped off with a champagne celebration and drive home from Glenorchy to Queenstown. Following this, the wedding was officially on and the couple commenced the tedious and stress-inducing wedding preparation procedure.

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 every detail considering the wants and desires from both sides. Our overall experience was very good however also quite stressful. As we are both very meticulous people, getting everything perfectly right took a lot of effort. The whole process was a rollercoaster ride however we were more than happy with the end result.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I visited many large bridal showrooms all over Delhi and Punjab to find my perfect lengha but opted for Rimple and Harpreet. I had a royal vintage Punjabi heritage theme in mind, inspired by my grandparents wedding outfits and the Maharaja era.

Growing up in western countries and having mostly caucasian friends, I always wanted a white wedding dress but due to differences in both cultures I had grown up with, I decided to incorporate something that would reflect both my Punjabi Sikh heritage and western culture brought up. Therefore I knew my base colour of the lengha had to be ivory/white with intricate colourful details and designs that connected me back to my roots.

I felt that only Rimple and Harpreet were the perfect designers to help deliver my vision into reality after seeing their clothing on instagram reflected Punjabi culture exactly how I envisioned it. After several discussions with Rimple and her design team we created a lengha that was unique and executed who I was and my vision perfectly highlighting all aspects I had in mind. I went in with a colour palette of royal blue, rustic orange and maroons with some sort of green tone.

My lengha describes who I am and has many heritage elements to it. It also incorporates my love for animals and flowers through the multiple peacocks, deers and native birds of Punjab embroidered amongst florals and abstract patterns. It took many months for the design to take shape but the end result was 100% better than imagined!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part would definitely be 'agreeing on things'. We shared different opinions on many things and were both adamant on ensuring perfection in every aspect of the wedding. These differing opinions did make decision making challenging, so when we did agree on something straight away, it made that aspect MUCH easier!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
From what we heard, our guests absolutely loved the traditional aspect of the wedding. In fact, we had many guests from India shocked to see so much tradition come back in front of their eyes, aspects which they had not seen in Sikh Punjabi weddings in India too! They also loved our wedding outfits and the attention to detail we had for all the decorations.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Walking down the aisle, the first look we shared and completing the final 'Laav' were definitely memories that will forever be cherished.

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.
