Dallas, TX Indian Fusion Wedding by MnM Photography

Good morning, Maharanis! I hope you are ready to dive into a real-life fairytale because Karla & Umesh's fusion wedding celebration will brighten your day and will melt your heart with tenderness and joy. So, get ready to have a blast! We love seeing Indian fusion weddings as they are a cornucopia of beauty, elegance, colorful decors, and above all, because we get to see how two different backgrounds become one through love. So, you can imagine how happy we were when we laid our eyes on the marvelous shots captured by MnM Photography, as every single shot was a perfect ode to extravaganza and traditional flair! But such a level of perfection and beauty is no casualty. Karla & Umesh had a fantastic lineup of wedding vendors working tirelessly to design their dream wedding. SB Events Co worked their magic orchestrating this event to perfection and found the best ally in Events by Faiza. Together, they crafted spectacular backdrops for the different ceremonies and wedding events hosted at the Omni Hotel Downtown Dallas. Although we've talked about all the beauty, amazingness, and elegance surrounding the two wedding ceremonies, we haven't forgotten about the star of the day: our gorgeous Karla! She nailed the ultimate bridal look thanks to MS Painted Lady and Sheetal's Henna Designs, who made her look like a goddess throughout the entire festivities. After the two wedding ceremonies, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds with an elegant reception party enlivened by DJ Riz Entertainment. Hands down, this was a night to remember, and we are so glad to have this spectacular gallery to enjoy all the amazingness surrounding this grand event. So, go check it out and get ready to have a great time!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Umesh had just moved to Phoenix after completing his residency and was starting his Geriatric Fellowship. I was working in Urogynecology at the time, and he so happened to have one of his rotations in the clinic I was working. Our paths crossed in the operating room during a patient case, and I am so grateful for that. I never thought I would recognize when someone was 'the one.' People always told me I would 'know' when someone was the right one for me, but I could never quite conceptualize that until I met Umesh. I knew he was the one for multiple reasons. Our values aligned; family has always been very important to both of us. We have always had healthy conflicts; he is always receptive to feedback and also respects boundaries. He has always been so open and honest; he lets me vent. He encourages me to make time for the aspects of my life outside of our relationship that also make me happy. He has helped my relationships with family and friends flourish and become even better and more stable. He has always felt like home; he sparked a light in a time of darkness for me. He has helped me see what it means to feel secure emotionally, physically, and mentally.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Umesh proposed on his birthday weekend. We had a group of friends join us at an Airbnb in Flagstaff as we had plans to go skiing/snowboarding. The morning of, a spontaneous hike was scheduled with the entire group. Everyone knew I was not keen on hiking but was agreeable as this is something Umesh wanted to do on his birthday weekend. The weather outside was perfect, and the scenery was beautiful. As we got 15 minutes into the hike, I started seeing rose petals on the ground and increasing by number. I automatically thought we would ruin someone else's surprise, so I turned around to try and push everyone in the opposite direction, but they kept moving me forward. Next thing you know, I turn around, and Umesh is down on one knee asking me to marry him.

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 knew we needed a wedding planner since we were getting married in Dallas, TX, and we live in Phoenix, AZ. We found Samiya with SB Events Co. and could not be more grateful to her and her team. She made the planning process very stress-free. She understood our vision and guided and directed us towards vendors that would make our dream wedding come to life. We got married at Omni Dallas Hotel. We had multiple ceremonies throughout the weekend, and Samiya worked side by side with their events coordinator to ensure things ran smoothly. Ms. Painted Lady (Alex) did my hair and make-up for the Hindu ceremony, western ceremony, and reception. The remainder of her team made sure the bridesmaids looked flawless. My Sangeet lehenga was from Chamee and Palak, Bombay, India. Their customer service was amazing! And the quality of the lehenga was stunning! It fit me perfectly. My Reception lehenga was from Studio D Dallas, Divya. My wedding planner had provided me with this vendor's information. She was so amazing throughout the process. And she was very accommodating, considering I could only fly to Dallas for fittings twice due to the pandemic. The lehenga was an absolute show stopper! My western ceremony dress was from Mariee Bridal in Scottsdale, AZ. The staff was accommodating and organized. We used DJ Riz for entertainment/DJ. He brought the excitement, especially during the Baraat, to hype up the crowd. He played a good blend of Bollywood and Latin hits along with top 40, which made the Sangeet and Reception fun-filled events. Our wedding theme was very modern with a touch of Indo-Mexican traditions. We used Events by Faiza, and she was terrific. We were only able to meet with her in person once due to COVID at that time. However, she was able to replicate our vision, and she made it all come to life. Our decor for Sangeet was much more colorful and lively. We incorporated both Indian and Mexican traditions. We had a bindi/bangle bar and henna station. We also had sombreros, maracas, and fans (abanicos) for our guests. The Hindu ceremony was grand - a lot of florals mixed with golds and a mirrored aisle. The western ceremony was simple yet elegant with acrylic accents and white floral arrangements. We had this ceremony outside with the views of Downtown Dallas. The reception was captivating. We had LED walls along with our DJ. We had a breathtaking floral ceiling treatment above the dance floor with our monogram in gold. We had Folklorico dancers and mariachi performances. DJ Riz made sure the dance floor was never empty. We had the pleasure of working with MNM Photography. I could not be happier with their work. Murtuza's style and attention to detail drew us to him and his team. We are forever grateful for the fantastic and beautiful memories he was able to capture for us.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
As we look back on our wedding, our guests loved how effortlessly our cultures blended. A lot of our traditions (although different in their ways) symbolize the same values. It was a very emotional experience, and we are so glad that our guests could be a part of it with us. I loved seeing my grandfather (who speaks very little English) walking over to Umesh's aunts and uncles from India and introducing himself. We were able to see our families mesh so well together after only having just met is something that we will always hold on to.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The seamless connection among Indian and Mexican cultures and how receptive and welcoming both families were to each other throughout each event.

Make sure to join us tomorrow for a new romantic love story!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He is a pilot and i work in an IT firm, i was flying to california to see my sister for holidays that's when my mom sent me his bio data. We met after that and the rest is history.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Best proposal ever, he was going to take me around new york city in those small planes and he was going to fly. That morning he made some excuse and he told me to go, i didn't want to go without him but he was adamant. His friend was going to take me around now, we were doing the pre-checks on the runway, and suddenly I saw him . I got happy thinking that he is coming with me now.All of a sudden I heard bollywood music and he was bending on one knee, i came out and I saw all my friends, my sister and everyone standing in the back with the will you marry me sign. It started raining when i said yes.

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 always wanted all the events at one place, so I was looking for a venue that had multiple locations  for different ceremonies and also we had a hotel upstairs so it was convenient for all guests to stay in. When I saw Sheraton for the first time, I was in love with the beautiful chandelier all over and all the modern vibes. They had a beautiful outdoor location where we did our wedding ceremony under the sun.
For me the decor was the most important thing because it can definitely add an extra wow factor to the place. Weddingdesign & Decor team were perfect. We chose beautiful fresh flowers décor for our wedding ceremony and for reception we did a completely different look. Royal blue theme with hint of gold. Our guests loved both the decor because it was so different from each other.
For my Hair & Makeup I hired  Dawn & Marisa, They did my makeup & hair at my SIL's wedding. I didn't even think twice before booking them. Marissa did an amazing job with all my looks, the makeup was so fresh and clean. I showed Dawn exactly what i wanted with my hair, different hairstyle for each events. Everyone loved it. They are the best.
As our wedding planner we hired Detailed Affairs team , literally best decision ever. They were on point starting from vendor meetings, walkthrough. They literally took care of everything.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always want to wear red on my wedding day but i was looking for something unique. Because of the pandemic i was not able to go to India for my wedding shopping, so i shopped all the outfits online including jewelry for all events. When i saw the video out of my wedding outfit for the first, i was in love with the outfit. It was exactly what i wanted  , gorgeous and unique.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning a wedding during pandemic is STRESSFUL !!! I planned everything from here as India was under strict lockdown, got all my pre-events, wedding & reception outfits online. I also got all my Jewelry for all events online. I used to be on calls & video calls with all the vendors until 2-3 am everyday. Instagram was a savior, I used to look for different designers, outfits, and all trending styles 24*7. Funny part , now I get a message that my screen time has reduced  by 60% post wedding LOL. The best part after all the stress is looking at everything coming together, trust me best feeling ever.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All the guests loved the Wedding & reception decor. They also loved the idea of outdoor wedding, we lucked out on the weather, it was freezing outside for all our pre-events and I really wanted outdoor wedding , it was 75  degrees. They also loved the flash mob dances, for my sister, Sil & bridal party walk, I asked them to do a small dance, instead of just walking in. Still obsessed over that

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
At our wedding when nikhil was putting the sindoor on my forehead, it fell on my nose. Everyone kept saying that means he loves you alot. I had the biggest smile on my face.

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.
People always say  the wedding is always about the bride, i wanted it to be about nikhil as well. I got customized kalree with small airplanes hanging, he absolutely loved it. I did small gestures with airplanes, we had airplanes on our cake. The  Reception seating chart was something different related to aviation.
For the wedding we had a lively baraat procession consisting of Bollywood bangers, colorful smoke bombs and choreographed performance by the groom's sisters & brothers on our family's favorite song "chotte chotte bhaiyo ke" . Following his energetic entry, I made my way to the mandap with my sister. It was a perfect sunny day  & our gorgeous fresh flower mandap looked perfect . And, ending it all on a high note, we drove off as newlyweds in our Slingshot Car.
A grand party that celebrated our love along with our loved ones,  the reception was packed with glitz and glamour. Nikhil and I made a smashing choreographed entry on the ‘Aeroplane’ song. Furthermore, touching speeches by our friends, siblings, and parents added an emotional touch to the event.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For all the other Bride-To- Be i would say The big day will be over before you  even realise it, don't stress over the details. Just Enjoy. Always go with what you & your partner want, remember it's your day not anyone else's.  Pick everything that you both like, don't think twice if you love it, don't forget you will remember this day for the rest of your life , so no regrets. A wedding should be an expression of your unique style & story together.

What an inspiring wedding celebration! Make sure to join us tomorrow for more lovely and inspiring ideas.
