Rockville, MD Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

After the gorgeous ceremony happened, and Raevathi & Akhil united their lives for eternity, it was time to celebrate with all the Raja and Maharani style and flair. The Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center was their venue of choice and to jazz things up, the ravishing beats of AmpliFIRE Entertainment, of course! The guests were about to have the time of their lives with this bash! We know that hospitality with their loved ones is a strong Indian characteristic, and these two lovebirds did not disappoint! So amazing! To top it all, the sweet pastry wonders of The Classic Bakery & Cafe gave that extra rush of sugar impulse to keep on lighting up the dancefloor! Seriously, ladies, you can't miss this beautiful gala! More details on today's gallery thanks to Photographick Studios!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Akhil and I met in our first class on our first day of school freshman year at college (UMD College Park). We ended up becoming good friends and started dating towards the end of that year, and got married almost 10 years since we met! I can't say there was an exact moment, but I'm glad we both eventually felt that each other was "the one"!

 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Akhil planned a trip to the National Arboretum, one of my favorite places around DC, and proposed in a beautiful spot by a gazebo overlooking a pond. After he proposed, we went out for dinner in DC to celebrate, and Akhil surprised me by inviting all our friends and family to celebrate - it was perfect!

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.
I really wanted a traditional wedding and it was important to me to incorporate both Tamil (my family) and Telugu (Akhil's family) traditions.  Most of the planning was around the ceremony and making sure the long ceremony went smoothly.  For the morning - decor, outfits, hair and makeup - I wanted to keep things pretty traditional, and for the reception, I wanted to keep it clean and simple.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I love neutral colors and was looking for champagnes and golds, and ended up finding the perfect gown (after several trips around Mumbai and Bangalore with my family in India).

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning some of the small details - I was really excited for my mehndi and requested my artist (@naseemhenna) to draw Bharatanatyam dancers (since I've been learning since I was 8) and it turned out so great.  I had also given a lot of thought to my outfits and hair/makeup so it was fun scrolling through Pinterest for ideas, and I think everything came out great in the end!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think guests liked all the traditions we had in the wedding from the baraat to the swing ceremony to the different games we played on the mandap. Of course, all the food was also great, and the playlist at the sangeet and reception were amazing!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Akhil completely surprised me by getting up and joining my cousins dance for the last song - I had planned out almost every detail of the whole wedding so I was so shocked that he kept that secret.  Plus he did such a good job!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Even if the planning process feels like a lot, the end result will be amazing and so much fun!

 

Amazing wasn't it? More every day, stick with us!

Rockville, MD Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

It's Wednesday, and in order to keep those energies up and running, we have Raevathi & Akhil's wedding celebration coming to us from Maryland. I am so blown away by the fabric of Maharani Raevathi's saree! The orange sherbet wonder she chose for the main ceremony is everything you want out of a saree. Style, color, elegance, you name it, the attire has it all! The quintessential Indian wedding celebration started with the Baraat, thanks to Olde Towne Carriages. Raja Akhil was looking at his best to pick up his Indian princess for the ceremony, and as we will see in today's picture gallery thanks to our friends from Photographick Studios, glamour was everywhere. When and Indian couple ties the knot, everyone knows it! So many classic moments that you can't miss, ladies! So stay with us one more time to witness everything that went on at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center.

Boston, MA Pakistani Wedding by Michaelangelo Photography

We know you wanted more of this Pakistani flair, ladies! So here we have it! Mariam & Tariq's vision was this fabulous spree at the Courtyard Boston Downtown, with all the necessary ingredients that certainly made it a unique experience. Their love and complicity can be felt through the pictures brought to us by our friends from Michaelangelo Photography, and it is just so magical to witness. After the ceremony, the now newlyweds wanted to pamper their loved ones, and what better way to do that than with the culinary wonders from Roti Boti Restaurant? Superb dishes for a superb wedding! It was finally time to dance so the team from Xtreme Productions indeed brought some extreme and romantic sounds for everyone to enjoy and guess what? It was a complete success. So, ladies, you know what time it is. Head down to our gallery of today and get those ideas going!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Tariq is from Trumbull, CT and I (bride) am from Boston, MA. I met Tariq at Brown University while he was in Medical School and I was a graduate student in the School of Public Health. We bonded over our mutual interest in QI in healthcare. 
 
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.
I loved and enjoyed every aspect of wedding planning! My vision for our wedding was timeless, classic, and elegant in the heart of Boston. Our wedding theme colors were traditional ivory and gold with red accents, blush lighting, florals, pearls, and velvet. Venue: I fell in love with this hidden gem of a venue in Downtown Boston. Emily Barrett and Megan Cote were incredible to work with from the Courtyard Boston Downtown, from being easily accessible and flexible during the planning process to beautifully coordinating our ceremony and reception. Hair and make-up: After seeing Mahwish Ali Beauty on Instagram and hearing raving reviews from friends, I flew in make-up artist Mahwish Ali from Maryland for hair make-up and dupatta/ jewelry setting. She is so fun to work with and her work is absolutely stunning. She did beautiful hair and make-up for my family and bridesmaids. Bridesmaid outfits: I worked with MIRI designer Mera Anwar to create a custom look for my 15 bridesmaids (5 designs in gold and mauve tones). I loved her creative vision and she was wonderful to work with. Decor: Shazia from Dhol Baja Baraat was wonderful to work with from Windsor, CT. Photographer: Michael Angelo Lucus flew from Edmonton, Canada to photograph our wedding festivities for 3 days and I am so happy he did! Not only is he a joy to work with, but his photography skills are beyond incredible. He is truly an artist.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
After much research on Pakistani bridal designers, my mom and I decided on Republic Womenswear Bridal Couture Heritage collection by designer Sana Omar. I immediately fell in love with the Heritage Collection. For the wedding, I was looking for oxblood red and vintage gold colors, with some velvet components. Republic Womenswear was also able to create a custom velvet shawl for me to wear with my bridal dress.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was working with my best friends and family! I am so grateful for wonderful friends who are like sisters and my supportive family for being there every step of the way!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The Bharat! My husband shut down Tremont Street, one of Boston's busiest streets, for his arrival on a horse with the Bharat and dhol master. Bostonians crowded the sidewalks, the garage, the shops, to see a glimpse of what was happening. The bride was upstairs in the hotel watching from her window above. Crowds cheered Tariq on, the Bharat danced away, and dhol music filled the air as the bride's family welcomed the groom's side and joined the festivities outside of the Courtyard Boston Downtown. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A special moment was our nikkah ceremony, which was private, small and intimate with our immediate families prior to the reception. Another special moment which we absolutely loved was seeing all of our most favorite people under one roof, with all of our close friends and family, for the ultimate reunion to celebrate the beginning of our lives together as husband and wife.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The wedding weekend goes by too quickly, remember to enjoy your wedding day surrounded by those you love! 
 
Stick around Maharanis, we have prepared more unforgettable love stories just for your delight!

Boston, MA Pakistani Wedding by Michaelangelo Photography

Over the top! That is exactly the expression that accurately describes our wedding feature of today. Boston was the city that saw Mariam & Tariq tie the knot with all the bliss you can possibly think of and we are loving every minute of it. Maharani Mariam and her thirteen bridesmaids turned the great Courtyard Boston Downtown into a fairy tale scenario and the place was looking amazing, just like the gorgeous bride. And what a style she displayed! For the main ceremony, our Maharani knew that she had to be just glowing. Her gold saree with classic burgundy details were truly in tune with her lavish hair and makeup, crafted by Makeup By Mahwish Ali, of course. An authentic chic princess! As we will see through the images taken by our friends from Michaelangelo Photography, this wedding was to die for! So elegant! We know you need more that one feature but hang in there, ladies, we have everything that went on in today's gallery so the inspiration is assured! Don't miss this!
