Good morning, Maharanis! We hope you and your close ones are safe and healthy. Today we are pleased to take you on a love journey through Natasha & Asif's big wedding celebration. To begin this journey, let us take you to the exclusive Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort - Stone Mountain, the ideal venue chosen by our lovely duo to celebrate their promise of eternal love. We are lucky to count on the talent of Brandon Andrews Photography, who made sure to capture all of the details from this spectacular event fully decored by Royal Dekors, who set the mood for this wedding with traditional ornaments that we loved so much. And if this is not enough, today we are featuring the visual masterpiece also created by Brandon Andrews Photography, who will delight us with their phenomenal film. You can enjoy it here. Everything was perfectly planned and trimmed by Amina Events, who was the mastermind behind all of the organization and let me tell you that they did an outstanding job creating our lovebird's dreamed wedding. The marvelous combination of talent between Glam By Ruthie, Ansley Corley, Dionne Ford, and Tori Johnson, created the royal look that Natasha, our beautiful bride, showcased during the different wedding event. Just lovely! Everyone enjoyed every detail, but I would like to highlight the delicious food prepared by Cafe Bombay Restaurant and Catering. It was exquisite! To relive all of the beautiful moments of this celebration, make sure to visit today's gallery. Trust me; you'll be amazed by so much beauty and traditional flair!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on an Indian dating app- Dil Mil. The first time we spoke on the phone, we spoke for over 4 hours and still didn't want to hang up. For our first date, he planned multiple activities for an entire day in NYC! It was way better than I had imagined and our day was supposed to end at 9pm, but it ended at 2am! And neither of us really wanted the day to end. We clicked so well and felt like we had known eachother forever! We were so comfortable with one another. That's when I knew he's the one for me!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Asif planned an elaborate proposal right where it had all started-- in NYC! He planned a weekend get away for us and took me back to every place where we went on our first date to relive that moment and then took me to a rooftop where he got on his knee and asked me to marry him! I'm really big on pictures so he made sure there was a photographer there too! It was a lovely, romantic and private affair.
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.
We went to India to shop for my outfits and jewelry. I did a lot of research about a year ahead of time for my vendors. I got a lot of hints and recommendations from Instagram and Maharani Weddings.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for shopping. The day after we landed, we went for shopping and I picked out a bunch of outfits. Out of all the outfits I tried, the white one stuck out the most and made me feel like that was my dress! I really wanted either an all white or blush lengha and wanted to pair it with either a red or hot pink dupatta on top. I found something even better than I had imagined. It was love at first sight! The entire family loved it the most too!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The way everything went so smooth and how much fun all our family and friends had! We loved every moment of it!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Find vendors that are easy to communicate with, that see your vision, and are easily reachable. A wedding coordinator is an absolute must to have a peace of mind on your wedding day! We had zero worries. Our coordinator, along with every single vendor, was amazing! We highly recommend all our vendors!
Ladies, if we inspire you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you to finish this week!
