We have the phenomenal gallery filled with fantastic and unforgettable shots, and we also have a cinematographic masterpiece, both created by none other than the talented crew from Killer Creations Photography and Cinematography. For this installment, we will relive all the remarkable moments of the big wedding reception hosted in one of the most elegant theaters of Detroit: The Fillmore Theater Detroit! We almost found ourselves lost of words when trying to describe how splendid the wedding reception was because everything turned out to be amazing! And we want to make a big shoutout to the phenomenal planning of Utsav Planners, Inc as they were major contributors to make this event, a dream come true! All guests enjoyed the delicious food from Krishna Catering, the luxury and traditional decor crafted by Bellasario, and the phenomenal beats from DJ Chachai. Hands down, this was an epic night.

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.
Venue: Fillmore, Detroit, MI
Decor Theme: Royal Palace, traditional South Indian

We wanted a venue where we could implement all South Indian traditions as well accompany a large number of guests.The most important part about Fillmore is that it allowed us to decorate the the venue  without restrictions and allowed us to have our own catering. The venue itself is quite traditional and encompassed gold architecture.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
It is South Indian tradition to wear gold with red/Burgundy kanchipuriam saree for wedding ceremony. The color is to symbolize purity, prosperity, and fertility.  The saree was purchased at Kanchipuriam, Tamil nadu. For the reception, the theme color was rose pink. Bridal lengha was by Tarun Tahiliani from Bangalore, Karnataka.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The decor was the most enjoyable part. I spent countless hours into research upon designs I had envisioned. I wanted something unique and exquisite. There was a lot of detail that went into each centerpiece, mantaps, design of the cake, etc.
