If you are eager to know more about Charu & Manan's wedding celebration, you cannot miss their solemn and vibrant wedding ceremony, it is one to remember!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband at the Olive Branch in New Brunswick at Rutgers Campus. We were both there with a group of friends and just happened to start chatting at the bar and never stopped talking from that day on. He wined and dined me and after the first official date, I remember calling up my best friend/maid of honor and telling her, "I think he's the one! I'm going to marry that guy." Something about him just stuck and I always wanted to be around him or talking to him and luckily it all worked out for the best!
 
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.
My husband and I both have experience in the wedding industry, him a bit more than me, so we sort of had the big things planned in our head before even putting pen to paper. We knew exactly which caterer, decorator, DJ, event planner, and photographer we wanted. We started with those and kept adding on from there. We ended up choosing the first venue that we looked at, which was the Marigold. We got married right at the beginning of wedding season on March 30, so all of the vendors were available and we locked everything in. 
 
Picking a hair and makeup artist is super important because you want to look and feel your best on your wedding day. I had only two trials and ended up picking my artist, Anu Sarin, right after the trial was done. It's important to work with someone who listens to what you want, makes changes based on how you feel in the look, and someone you trust. She and I got along from the beginning and she was very easy to work with which made me feel comfortable.
 
I knew that I wanted a beautiful, elegant, and romantic wedding theme, with light colors and whites and light pinks and candles. That's all I said when I went to the Elegant Affairs meeting, and they turned my vision into a reality. We had beautiful cherry blossom centerpieces, a bamboo mandap with white and light pink roses with greenery and a stunning flower wall. We had candelabras and hanging orbs and lots of candles. It was right out of a fairytale!
 
Picking the right DJ is extremely important because if your guests will remember anything from your wedding, its the food and the music! We went with DJ Sunny Entertainment and they KILLED it. From the Sangeet to the wedding reception, people were on the dance floor the entire night. It didn't even clear out for dinner. They helped us design our custom dance floor, our huge video wall, the sparklers and the fog clouds for our first dance. The emcee was high energy and kept the vibe going all night.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I got my wedding dress in Bombay and I had taken out a bunch of dresses to try on. I knew I wanted to wear a full red lehenga and green jewelry to contrast with it. I put on a few dresses but none of them had that wow factor. Then I put one dress on (the one I ended up with) and thought oh this one is beautiful and it's sparkling and it put a smile on my face right away. I still wanted to see other ones because I didn't want to miss anything, so we put it on the side. After seeing a few more I tried on my dress again and another woman walked by showing interest in it and pointing at it like she wanted to buy it. At that moment I told my mom to pack it up, this is the one! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests are still complimenting the food from the whole wedding week. We had Moghul Caterers and they did such a fabulous job. We have heard nothing but good things! We didn't want to repeat any items and tried to make sure our guests had food they haven't had before since Moghul is so popular. They worked with us to customize our menu and it worked out awesome.
 
Another thing people loved was the live music we had during the cocktail hour. Philadelphia String Quartet played upbeat music during the cocktail hour, played on the dance floor as people found their seats, and then played violins over our first dance song as we slow danced. It was definitely one of the highlights and everyone loved it!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first dance was really perfect. We had a whole choreographed dance that we practiced but when we got on the dance floor, we ended up forgetting all of it and forgoing the choreography. We just started dancing. We added in a few special touches and spins we remembered from the choreography but the rest of it was just pure happiness and enjoying the moment. 
 
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.
I did a lot of DIY things for the wedding. For example, we had hotel bags custom made in India, I had popcorn boxes with the hindu ceremony program on the sides of the boxes, I designed the menu cards for the reception, custom cocktail napkins, bar signs, the signs for the food stations at the sangeet, etc. I tried to be creative, while not going completely overboard. Everything ended up coming together beautifully and all of the hard work was definitely worth it. Luckily my wonderful and super helpful family sat there and helped me assemble everything on all of the weekends leading up to the wedding! That family time ended up being the most enjoyable part of the wedding planning process! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I personally put the planning aside one week before my first wedding event. I HIGHLY recommend every bride do this, just so you can thoroughly be present in the moment and truly enjoy your wedding week. I was confident that I had all of the top vendors in the state working at my wedding and I left it to them to see my vision through, and they really did just that and put on the perfect wedding. Every bride needs to just be in the moment and enjoy it because that week flew by and I would do anything to relive it. Things can go wrong and it won't always be perfect, but no one will notice except you! Don't pay mind to the little things and just fully enjoy being with your family, friends, and loved ones because that week is all about YOU and everyone is there to celebrate YOU (and your hubby)!
 
We still have more to come, so stick around if you don't want to miss it!

Mill Valley, CA Indian Wedding by Visual Artistry

Welcome back, Maharanis! We are happy you could join us at Sabah & Adil's wedding reception party. This reception was a perfect combination of elegance and romance and we are sure that everyone enjoyed being part of this vibrant event. The great work of Limelight Productions and Aesthetika Events created an elegant atmosphere that set the mood for this reception. Definitely, this sweet and young couple could not have asked for a better scenario to celebrate with their family and friends. Sabah & Adil had the time of their lives, and thanks to the talent of DJ from Nirvana Entertainment, everyone in the room danced the night out! Without a doubt, this was a night to remember, that was getting near to the end when our lovebirds had the first cut at the cake! We wish that our journey into this wedding celebration didn't have to end because we are having such a great time, but like all great love stories, we have to let them go so they have their happily ever after. But luckily for us, we can always relieve the most memorable scenes of this event, thanks to the incredible shots captured by Visual Artistry Co.

Mill Valley, CA Indian Wedding by Visual Artistry

Hi there, ladies! We are back with more details of this elegant and romantic love story! For this installment, we will take you to the halls of the Mill Valley Community Center to join Sabah & Adil at their wedding ceremony. Just like we saw on the first look photo shoot, this wedding ceremony was characterized by the elegance and tenderness of our beautiful young couple. They had the dreamy wedding ceremony they have always imagined thanks to the remarkable work of Limelight Productions, as they created a beautiful atmosphere that was perfect for our love birds to tie the knot. However, this atmosphere would not have been possible without the incredible decor and floral arrangements that Aesthetika Events put together for this event. The combination of the soft color floral arrangements with the creamy and soft golden ornaments created a magical setting that resembles the interior of an ancient Indian palace. And we are loving every single bit of it! This was a celebration full of tradition, elegance, and love that was beautifully perpetuated thanks to the lens of Visual Artistry Co.

Mill Valley, CA Indian Wedding by Visual Artistry

Hello ladies! If you like fashion and elegance, you cannot miss Sabah & Adil's wedding celebration. We are starting this Thursday with an elegant first look photo shoot that was carried out by the talented folks from Visual Artistry Co. Each of these photographs captured the most intimate and romantic moments of this couple just a few minutes away from starting a lifetime of marriage, and they were captured in such an incredible way that you get to feel the same emotions that our beautiful young couple was feeling at that moment. We see our gorgeous Sabah rocking an incredible look while walking down the hall to go surprise her future husband. And we are loving every single detail of this look! Her traditional and elegant pale turquoise saree, embellished with silver patterns was perfectly complemented with the delicate and fashionable hairstyle and makeup that Megan Naik created for this special day. The color palette that was used to praise the natural beauty of this Maharani, was simply spectacular as it doted her with elegance while highlighting her beautiful "In love" look. And what about the wavy hairstyle? It was flawless! This was a winning combination that we are loving as it made our beautiful Sabah look like a princess! And apparently, we were not the only ones who were impressed with her look, since our elegant Raja, was speechless when he saw his future wife in her wedding attire for the first time! This was a scene so romantic and spontaneous that we just can't get enough. If you want to see more details of this photo shoot do not miss the gallery that we have prepared for today, you will love it!
