Good morning, Maharanis! We are in the middle of the week, and we are here to give you a re-fill of inspiration. Today we have something special prepared just for you. We are double featuring Niti & Sudhir's wedding festivities. Today you will be able to enjoy the phenomenal visual masterpieces captured by the extraordinary talent from Biyani Photography, who presented us with a fantastic film that you can relive here. On this installment, we are showing their detailed photo captures, which will fill you with so many emotions. To begin this journey, let me take you to the exclusive Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria for our lovely duo's wedding ceremony. Right from the top, we must say that the hall was entirely decorated by Mandap Creations, who went above everyone's expectations decorating a beautiful scene with mixed flower arrangements, lights, and veils giving a luxurious and traditional environment to this ceremony. Such talent! Niti, our gorgeous Maharani, walked down the aisle with such a royalty look, wearing a marvelous lehenga from Priti Sahni. This sleek attire praised her natural beauty leaving everyone speechless. Hands down, she made the right choice by choosing Hilda & Co for her beauty needs. You are welcome to relive this ceremony in today's gallery!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my Sudhir on Dil Mil. At the time, he was finishing up his last couple of months of residency in Lubbock, TX while I was working and living in CT. We both knew early on this was it. We texted and FaceTimed almost everyday for 4.5 months before we met for the first time. He came to see me in NYC and even though it was a short weekend trip, we had the best time. Every time we met after that was even better than the last. Sudhir told me early on he knew I was the one for him. I knew it early on too but only admitted it after I saw him with my parents and sisters. Our relationship was always long distance and although it was difficult at times, it forced us to really get to know each other and really helped us build a strong foundation.
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.
Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful and daunting but every single vendor we worked with was absolutely amazing and made the process and experience so easy and enjoyable for us.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I worked with a designer I found on Instagram (PritiSahni). I always knew I wanted to wear an off white/cream color lehenga with gold embroidery and work. I had a design in mind and Priti made it come to life within my budget.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was learning more about Sudhir and wanting to hear his opinions and making decisions together. If you ask him, he would say food and cake tasting!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests to this day talk about the food! Our caterer Bhojan: Mumbai Grill & Catering went above and beyond for us and our guests really loved every single dish they made.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The one moment that I will never be able to forget was mine and Sudhir’s first look. He looked SO handsome! The next most memorable moment was seeing my parents on the mandap as I walked down the aisle. I still remember all the emotions.
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 wanted to keep decor as simple, clean and elegant as possible. Our decorator, Mandap Creations, was so great in providing us with options that fit our style and budget.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process! And remember to be in the moment the day of. It goes by so fast!
