Key Largo, FL Indian Fusion Wedding by Linett Teresa Photography

For this installment, we will take you to the peaceful and captivating shores of the Historic Shadow Point to be part of the colorful and fashionable Haldi ceremony that was the perfect start for this lifetime love story.

And talking about exquisite, we want to make a big shoutout Linett Teresa Photography for the incredible shots that were captured during this event. We are loving every photo, as each of them transports us back to that magical moment, and make us feel just like if we were there!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Bhavishyat (Bhavi) through colleagues at work. The connection was very natural like we knew each other from forever. It was my birthday weekend, that he planned a trip to Chattanooga, TN where I realized it had to be him. His loving, affectionate and caring nature made me realize all that I wanted in my Mr. Right, was in him.  
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were getting ready for a dinner date, he made sure I was in the room as pest control were doing a treatment at home (at least that is what he said). Ready for our dinner outing I stepped outside to flowers showering and Bhavi on his knees.  
 
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.
Well, we are from different faiths and were planning a small but fun wedding party with family and friends on a beach in Florida, that helped us celebrate the best of both cultures with people who mattered the most. 
It was a real challenge, in fact, I feel we couldn't have done another exercise to know each other and our families soo well. From choosing a location in Key Largo to the venue Historic Shadow Point to getting Anita Amin #AminaEvents to help us coordinate our wedding weekend. To choosing LinettePhotography as our wedding photographer to getting Hair, Makeup and Henna artists in Key Largo. To finding food options that go well for all. To the 2 priests to solemn up man and wife according to Hindu and Muslim traditions. It was a real experience. But the happy faces and the fact that we will be together forever made it all worth it.  
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for wedding shopping, I wanted a non-traditional color Lehenga for Nikaah. So dark blue and pastel green was an option we choose. For Kalyanum my mother in law felt pink would suit me well so it was a pink and gold and white and pink saree combination. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
We planned all the details of D day, it was exactly the way we wanted. A mixture of cultures with a lot of fun. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Venue and cocktail party
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Fun times with family and friends
 
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.
Haldi and Mehndi in the open, with mangal snanum at sunset.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Dont stress the small stuff, no one remembers the color of your mandup or dress or the food. You got to enjoy D day. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
All local talent, cheaper.

This pre-wedding event was the perfect preamble for the upcoming wedding ceremonies! So don't go too far if you don't want to miss them out!

Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Good morning, Maharanis! We know how much you enjoy these love stories, and how inspiring they can be, that is why we are really excited to share Ashmi & Akshat's wedding celebration with you as it is one for the books! We are starting this love story by taking a look at the lovely photos that Lightyear Studio captured, showing the most tender and intimate moments of this young couple prior to their wedding ceremony. Through each of these photos, we can follow the process of both our lovebirds getting ready and heading to a charming and fun-loving photoshoot that we cannot stop seeing. Although outdoor photo shoots are becoming really popular, Ashmi & Akshat managed to surprise us, creating an outdoor photo session like no other! Even their friends participated in this photo shoot, creating romantic and fun scenes that made us draw a smile on our face, and we are loving every single detail of it! Ashmi looked like Royalty on her traditional burgundy lengha that was embellished with golden patterns, while Akshat was rocking a stylish yet traditional Sherwani suit in champagne and golden colors, and ended up looking like the real Raja he is! We are loving the glowing yet discreet makeup that Makeup by Shaili created to praise Ashmi's beauty. The color palette selected for the shades, the on-point eyeliner contour and the matte tone selected for the lipstick, all a perfect combination to create a dreamy look for Ashmi. And what about that Mehndi design done by Henna by Jinal, it is spectacular! All the talent, expertise and artistry present on this design is simply mesmerizing. If you don't want to miss any single detail of this photoshoot, head into today's gallery for more!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
When Akshat and Ashmi first met all those years ago at Rutgers, they didn’t know what to expect. But getting to know one another was easy and soon enough, they were goofing off together all the time. From study dates to poking wars, they became best friends even though they were like night and day. They say the best relationships start off as friendships first. Even though they lost touch, both of them somehow found their way back to one another. Akshat and Ashmi's story was never meant to end there; it was only just beginning. After reconnecting years later, both of them found themselves falling back into old patterns and restarting an old friendship. So, Akshat and Ashmi ventured back out to where their story first began and spent their first night out together on College Ave catching up and sharing old stories. Eventually, endless texts became long phone calls, which became late night conversations that led to the first date of many. Rose petals and scented candles lit the path to where Akshat stood in his room waiting to ask Ashmi to start the first of many adventures with him. What they thought to only be friendship turned out to be so much more...
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Akshat decided to fly all of our closest friends into Tampa, Florida where we were living together at the time. I admit that I was slightly oblivious as I had thought I had arranged for all my friends to come see me for the weekend. I started to get suspicious when my girlfriends kept asking me to get a mani pedi since I'm not really one to paint my nails. The next day we were all headed to Sunset Beach where Akshat got down on one knee and asked me to marry him with the most beautiful Harry Potter inspired ring in a golden snitch with all of my closest friends wearing Harry Potter shirts spelling out "Will You Marry Me?". Of course I said yes! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted a maroon or wine colored bridal lengha so my mom decided to go shopping in India for it since she was already there for a business trip. It was definitely a grueling process since the whatsapp video connection in India was terrible. So, I finally agreed to a lengha not knowing what it fully looked like due to the poor quality of the video call. However, when I saw it in person, I fell in love. When I wore it the day of our wedding, it was everything and more. I felt absolutely stunning in it. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Probably the food. When is food not the big winning factor at a big fat indian wedding? Unless of course it sucked, but in this case it didn't. Thanks Rasoi for coming through for us! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I would say elope! Or have a destination wedding because planning a wedding for 300+ people is crazy hectic. At the end of the day, I would say I wanted a more intimate wedding at a more romantic location. But we all know know at the end of the day, indian weddings are not really about us but more for our guests and parents. Despite this, I loved each and every moment of our big day and ended up being such a remarkable memory that I can't wait to share with my children and grandchildren one day. 
 
Don't forget to join us at Ashmi & Akshat's wedding ceremony! We will be waiting for you!
