Tarrytown, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Dave Robbins Photography

Happy Thursday, Maharanis! We are so excited to bring you an insight into Laura & Rajesh's wedding celebration as we know this fusion wedding will brighten up your day! There is something extraordinary about Indian fusion weddings that we love so much, so you can imagine how happy we were when this wedding came into our hands. And we were dying to share it with you, so let's enjoy it together! We are starting this love journey by taking a look at a Sangeet ceremony held at the striking Tarrytown House Estate. And right from the start, we have to say that we adored every moment of this bright and festive celebration. The vivid colors and the joyful environment surrounding this opening ceremony was just the perfect preamble for what was coming down the road. And before we go any further, we want to give a big shoutout to Erganic Design for the excellent planning and execution of this wedding. We know that making a dream wedding come to life is not easy, but they nailed it to perfection! So big kudos to them! The big day arrived, and Laura & Rajesh were ready to unite their lives in marriage with two magical ceremonies, fully decored by Designs By Ahn! Our gorgeous Maharani attended all wedding events looking like a goddess thanks to Beautini by B.Lo, who took care of her beauty needs. And we cannot forget about that marvelous Mehndi designed by Henna by Tanvi. It was one to die for! The wedding celebration concluded with a reception party hosted at the Tappan Hill Mansion, and we are sure that everyone had the time of their lives dancing to the beats of Premier DJ Usa PSAV and celebrating the newlyweds. Check more of this celebration in today's full gallery thanks to the shots captured by Dave Robbins Photography!

Mumbai, India Indian Wedding by Able Arts Studio

Happy Wednesday, gorgeous Maharanis! If you were looking for inspiration, you've come to the right place! Pranali & Herin's wedding celebration is the perfect combination of all the things we love, and so much more! This time, we are taking you on a trip to India, for you to enjoy this cornucopia of love and tradition. The day started with a romantic photoshoot carried out by Able Arts Studio. And oh boy, every single shot was a visual delight overflowing with tons of emotions capable of brightening up your day. After the photoshoot, it was time to carry on with the wedding ceremony. When Pranali & Herin decided they wanted to tie the knot in India, they knew how impressive and majestic India can be, so they wanted their wedding to be extraordinary to keep up with the beauty and radiance that India has to offer! That is why our lovebirds decided to trust Shagun Party Lawn not only to host their ceremony and reception but to take care of the planning and decor as well, as the expertise they have in taking wedding celebrations to the next level, is out of the question. After the ceremony, there was a glamorous reception that concluded the festivities! And if you thought that the atmosphere was already perfect on its own, wait until you see how the imposing presence of our gorgeous Maharani created mesmerizing scenes that seemed taken out from a fairy tale. She burst into the room wearing a trendy lengha embellished with dazzling embroidery from Mukti Tibrewal, very well complemented with the exquisite hairstyle and makeup designed by Tanya Dhillon Makeovers. Simply amazing! Don't miss today's gallery for more details of this wedding. You'll love it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Neal and I met during a dance practice for one of our South Asian cultural shows at Boston College. Neal was dancing behind me and accidentally kicked me during one of the dance moves. I turned around and the first thing he said was "Let's hug it out." I didn't know him at the time so I was pretty shocked.  Fast forward a little over a year later, Neal and I had just started dating and he decided to take me on a picnic. It was a surprise but he took me to this spot he had discovered with one of his friends where we could see all of Boston. We sat at a picnic bench and he had gotten lunch for us. His favorite sandwich from a local deli and an ice cream cake... which had melted by the time we got to it. It was so sweet. That's when I knew he was special.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My best friend Oishee decided to take me out for a "girls day!" We are both doing our residency in New York and are always quite busy so she said we should have a day of pampering on a day when we were both off! She told me it would be fun to dress up even! We went to get our nails done, then cocktails at Beauty and Essex, some of our usual activities. She had a special reservation at a rooftop bar which we were running late for. Beauty and essex was taking some time with our order so they offered free champagne which my friend surprisingly turned down. If other things hadn't tipped me off, I knew something was up! She could tell I might suspect, so by the time we got to the roof she was nudging me towards the rooftop where we saw  Neal, facing the city skyline, rose petals all over the roof with candles. He turned around and I remember tears rushing down my face. I honestly can't even remember anything he said during his proposal but I said yes without hesitation. One of the happiest days of my life.
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.
Wedding planning was certainly stressful especially during my first year of residency, but all I can say is that no wedding can be planned without the love and support of family and friends. I had my cousins and aunts who are always there for backup! My hair and makeup was done by Sanjana Vaswani who is like a fairy godmother. She helped me with the looks I wanted perfectly! Neal was the one who actually found her when he was doing his wedding research!  My decorations were done by Abhishek Decorators from Edison as well. They were able to recreate all of our ideas and make them a reality.  For our Sangeet we had bright colors with umbrellas and a swing where we watched all of the performances and speeches from our family and friends. We were even able to enter our sangeet on a colorful rickshaw! We had a traditional Kohinur circle mandap with flowers adorned at the top and a catwalk so all guests could see. Our reception decor was a perfect end for our fairytale! Hues of purple and pink with gold shimmer for our backstage. Our venue was the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich, CT. The hotel was beautiful from the inside out with an indoor garden atrium. We didn't even have to leave the hotel for beautiful photos for both the bridal party and all of our guests. The sangeet was at the Serafina Italian Center which was a spectacular venue with beautiful greenery and high ceilings and chandeliers.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My wedding saree was actually from India. I'm a traditional South Indian girl at heart so I really wanted to wear a maroon Banarsi saree. My sangeet outfit and my reception gown were both from Nazraana in Edison, NJ. I had been looking on pinterest for the type of gown I wanted for my reception, I kept showing everyone a picture of this beautiful silver gown completely adorned with stone work. No one was able to find anything that compared. On a spur of the moment trip to Edison with my friend and her husband, we just thought we'd pop into Nazraana for fun. The exact outfit I had been dreaming of was there on the rack, I tried it on and it fit perfectly. I purchased it on the spot. I felt like Cinderella!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Well one thing which we had a lot of fun was food/cake tasting! We are both huge foodies and love trying new things. Our caterer was Chand Palace in New Jersey. The food was absolutely incredible! The chef was able to create new dishes based on our tastes and ideas. We also had an amazing viennese Dessert buffet which our guests loved! Our cake was from DiMare Bakery which was in CT near our venue. There were endless flavors to choose from!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests enjoyed many different parts of the wedding! At our Sangeet, our decorator created a selfie station, with a colorful rickshaw and a chudi bazaar.
The Hyatt also had a beautiful atrium with plenty of greenery inside which was great for photos as well!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My favorite moment from the wedding is our first look! I walked down into the atrium with trees all around us, and I put my hands over Neal's eyes from behind. He turned around and saw me. He told me I looked beautiful and nearly had tears in his eyes. But he quickly stopped and said No I can't cry because then you'll cry and ruin your makeup.
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.
For our Sangeet we had bright colors with umbrellas and a swing where we watched all of the performances and speeches from our family and friends. We were even able to enter our sangeet on a colorful rickshaw! Our reception decor was a perfect end for our fairytale! Hues of purple and pink with gold shimmer for our backstage
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy every minute of it! Make sure you get what you want as it is your day! And don't forget to eat!
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My photographer is Sangeeta from DeviKumari Images. Her and her brother Rishi were incredible! She was so inspiring and excited about our story it was so fun to shoot with her! We felt every moment and had the best time! Our videographer is Nayeem from BlissWedding Films. Our highlight film and engagement shoot in Boston was so much fun and we got to revisit our favorite spots where we fell in love and did it all over again!

More coming in a bit, darlings! So make sure to stay tuned.
