Detroit, MI Indian Wedding by Jobst Media

Like true Bollywood stars, Puja and Ajit hosted a fabulous wedding celebration that kicked off with a vivacious grand sangeet at MGM Grand Detroit Casino. The fantastic planning firm of Utsav Planners, Inc. guided the couple from the start and provided their expertise to create their unforgettable wedding weekend! Family and friends gathered for the vibrant function in a magical set up filled to the brim with bright color drapery along with exquisite traditional finery created by Yanni Design Studio. This surreal ambiance surrounded the guests who danced the night away with Dhoom Events Indian Wedding DJ's best energetic beats! Besides the dance galore, the night was made up of traditional food, blessings and above all, colorful attires! Puja chose an alluring dress option, a teal green lehenga that featured sequin embellishments and that matched flawlessly with her Raja Ajit attire! Jobst Media captured the seriously stunning pictures you will find in our full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him at a mutual friends wedding in Richmond Virginia in 2013. I had just moved to Chicago and was told that I need to get to know him because he was a lot of fun and also lived in Chicago. I knew he was the one about 6 months into dating. 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ajit took me to Kohler Spa in Wisconsin for a impromptu weekend getaway over labor day weekend. I happened to have a few days off from residency and he planned the whole trip! On the first night there  we got massages, went out to a nice dinner and then grabbed drinks at the spa. As the night was winding down, we decided to head back to our hotel room and he made me my favorite drink from Brazil-a caipirinha. 

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.
Having a wedding in Michigan meant that lot of the same venues and vendors were usually used so we really tried to do things different by trying to incorporate out of state vendors. We loved the Westin for our wedding venue and loved working with the staff there. Emily did an amazing job and really catered to everything that we needed. We also wanted a different venue for the sangeet and MGM was perfect as it provided such a large space, amazing food choices and the ability to personalize and put our stamp on the event. We had picked our decorator-Yanni Design Studios, from our engagement party and knew that he was do an amazing job translating our visions into actual decor. He and his team were amazing to work with. I used a lot of Instagram inspiration to translate my visions for each event. Our wedding planners-Utsav also did an excellent job executing on the weekend of the wedding to make sure that everything went perfect. Our MC/DJ and dholi were also from new york/jersey and texas respectively and they did an amazing job. They brought some freshness to the dancing and the LED dholi wasn't a bad touch. On one of our vacations we saw an electric violinist and loved the sound, we thought it would be cool to have someone like that perform and play at our reception. We worked with our DJ to find a local Chicago performer Kat V, electric violinist, and had her come out for cocktail hour and the reception. She was able to play with indian and american music which was perfect for our party! 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since I was in residency, it was difficult for me to find time to go to India to go shopping so I did a lot of browsing online via Instagram. I contacted designers through whatsapp and futher personalized my outfits. I chose Sabyesachi for our wedding outfits as they were timeless and the deep red/burgundy color that they had was the color that I had always envisioned for my wedding outfit. I wanted everything else to be cream/white and gold on the wedding day and my outfit to really pop in contrast.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Working with my future husband to plan this dream wedding. It was interesting to hear his opinions and learn how to make compromises. It was our first opportunity to show how well we could work together.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food and decor. They loved the uniqueness of the decor as we used a vendor from outside Detroit. The food was specially picked for our event: Friday nights theme was bazaar themed so we had MGM make food from all different regions we had travelled: mexican, thai, indian, mediterranean stations. For dessert at our reception we tried to incorporate some of our favorite treats-andes mint chocolate chip mouse and snickers peanut butter mouse.  Our decor was out of this world. The pictures came out beautiful. Everything looked beautiful and exactly how we had envisioned. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Many moments play over in my mind. Sitting at the mandap during the wedding ceremony and looking out at all our friends and family there to celebrate our love was amazing. Taking romantic photos after the ceremony at the Detroit public library and Detroit institute of arts was amazing as well! Those few minutes in the day when I would be completely alone with Ajit were also very nice. Especially before the wedding when we did the first look pictures. It was a good reminder of our love and how special the day was. It was hard during the wedding weekend to get those few moments alone since there were so much going on! 

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.
Thursday mehndi: I wanted colorful but more pink, orange, yellow theme: we used umbrellas as table settings and designs from instagram for the picture wall and gift table, food stations were all indian snack themed and even had snow cones
Friday Sangeet: outdoor bazaar theme: I wanted colorful( blues, greens, purples) tents and cafe lights, but all indoor because of unpredictable weather in detroit, i wanted an eclectic food menu and a large area for all the performances, which ended up being set up like a theater, the backdrop was a beautiful seating area where guests could also get mehndi done if they were unable to attend the Thursday event
Saturday reception: travel themed, used boarding passes for seating arrangements, had a louis vuitton travel suitcase for the card box made from etsy, had mini suitcases filled with personalized M&Ms for our party favors on each seating, each table setting had a story about what city it was named for and had a personalized story about our trip there as well as a photo from that trip, our cake was travel themed with a map of the world and a plane with a cake topper that said let the adventure begin. 
We loved our same day video edit by 97 films, they also did an amazing job with the long version of the film. Katie was great to work with and really listened to what we wanted. She even changed the background music based on our preferences for the same day edit.


Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy every moment of planning and try not to stress too much because things will work out in the end! You don't need to go to India to have your outfits made. I did most of my outfit planning from the US and was able to communicate easily with designers online. I also designed my bridesmaid and groomsmen outfits in the US. Also, don't be afraid to do something different! We went with DJs & a decorator from outside michigan and loved our choices. 

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I bought all my bridemaids matching gold and cream outfits with matching gold jewelry which helped tie things together. Groomsmen also had matching gold and cream outfits.

Dallas, TX Pakistani Wedding by Sarah Kelly Photography

Annaa and Sanan’s wedding is a bliss! And here we have the beautiful collection of images that Sarah Kelly Photography kindly shared with us! The camera crew portrayed the sweethearts in the midst of the serene gardens and golf fields of El Dorado Country Club. Maharani Annaa’s mehndi outfit worked perfectly well together with Sanan’s, as they both chose to wear orange and teal hues! The most awaited party kicked off when the beautiful Annaa stepped into a striking hall at the exclusive El Dorado Country Club. The gathering point overflowed with traditional decorative details but my absolute favorite was the beautiful swing stage that the artistic décor team of Wedding Decor By Faiza prepared as a special seating for the bride and groom and that was perfectly placed against the loud and multicolor drapery. With the music of the elite entertainment company, Outspoken Visions Entertainment, cousins, friends and the rest of the family sang, danced and blessed the couple all night long. Peruse through the wedding album in our full gallery.

Huntington Beach, CA Indian Wedding by Samson Productions

I am head over heels about the beautiful Sneha and Vimal's wedding! This elegant couple’s union was marked by their incredibly good style and fashion. Sneha chose the professional hair and make-up stylist Monica DUo to embellish her from head to toe! The bridal expert gave her a fresh makeup to her natural glowing look to complete the dramatic white and red lehenga assemble that was a true example of a timeless style! The best accessories adorned the lovely Sneha, from a precious maang tikka to an exquisite bangle set that allowed to appreciate the beautiful henna paisleys and shapes that the mehndi artist Neeta Sharma designed on her arms and hands. Vimal gave us a lesson on groom fashion with an impeccable white sherwani lightly embroidered that paired with matching white juttis made a style statement on his big day! Just before the ceremony, Samson Productions caught on camera the magic between these two during their special first look moment and the heartwarming photos are all in our full gallery!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As much as I love him our timeline is a bit ridiculous. He proposed the weekend after helping me expand my business Shanti Healing which is named after my grandmother. He was supposed to fly home on Sunday evening and little did I know he rented a car to go stay at my best friends an hour away so he can go check out the perfect location down PCH. 
 
He did an amazing job & I am very surprised no one slipped even with me hosting a paint nite as an early mother's day celebration the evening before.  All 4 of My best friend were pregnant at that time so one used the excuse of wanting to go check out pregnancy shoot locations and planned a girls day however little to our surprise as we were getting ready one friend was in the hospital giving birth and her text me was she wasn't feeling well so don't pick her up. We get to the beach I'm taking pictures of my friend and her husband and  I feel a tap on my shoulder ... rest is the beginning of our future after 7.5 months of dating. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I really wanted a red gown however my mom, sister's & aunts were strongly against it. I actually found my wedding out our 1st day in India, we had to facetime my Mami but with the time difference our connection failed but after seeing how many stores carried the print that I had originally gone to India with I instantly fell in love with my outfit
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Getting so many random dates with my mother's (mom & 4 aunts) 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Heard a lot of compliments on how everyone enjoyed the events. We had paint nite at my mehndi,  churros & dipped ice cream at my reception,  and raised a toast with our audience rather than kissing at our I dos. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The views on our wedding day, even though things were going wrong feeling that nervousness before I tapped his shoulder for our 1st look pictures. How family that rarely come to events all came to celebrate our love. Sooo many more moments

Los Angeles, CA Indian Wedding by Greycard Photography

Often times we see a Maharani making a grand appearance. However, Maharaja Vishal was ready to share the spotlight with Neha as he was ushered by a majestic horse from Enchanted Carriages to Casa Del Mar. Dolled Up by Lulu ensured this bride was anything but ordinary as she walked down the petal covered aisle. JnJ Florals blended foraged greenery, lush arrangements of peonies, and sweet peas to form one of the most charming mandaps I have seen to date. Modern LA Wedding ensured all the magical puzzle pieces came together perfectly and set a new standard in Indian wedding planning and design! Guests dined on Natraj Catering and Restaurants energizing guests for the party that evening. Of course, it is the memory makers that brought us Neha's big day. Greycard Photography captured all the tantalizing memories. Fall in love over and over and over again in our gallery
