Ontario, Canada Bengali Wedding by LTL Studios

Welcome, Maharanis! Minimalism is an idea and style that you might think is the opposite of our ravishing and colorful celebrations. However, it is an extension of them. Some of our brides celebrate with huge sprees and others decide to simplify and celebrate the core and root of their union in the intimacy of their homes. Both of them amazing and both of them glamorous. Our Bengali couple of today's feature balances both styles beautifully and here we have them for you to take a look at the fabulous snaps that complete their heart melting highlight film! For their intimate civil ceremony planned by Antara Rahman VVA Events, our dazzling Maharani Shaharin came out looking like a true princess straight from the Bay of Bengal! Her vivid purple and periwinkle sari truly stood out to me because of its vibrancy and design. So stunning! One single picture speaks more than a thousand words, so come on over and have a glimpse of what went on for this beautiful ceremony thanks to LTL Studios in our complete gallery

Philadelphia, PA Indian Wedding by Studio Nine Photography

The moment our couple had been waiting for so long finally arrived! Maharani Alli was absolutely glowing for the main ceremony. Shining like a true Maharani, she came out wearing a bronze toned saree with details in gold and burgundy that left me totally speechless. Truly one of the most beautiful sarees we have seen so far! After such a knockout beauty walked down the aisle and tied the knot with our lucky groom Shivan in a gorgeous ceremony at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, the guests and newlyweds headed down to the reception hall to start with the celebration of the huge milestone reached. The couple recruited our well know friends from Elegant Events Planning & Design and Partyland Event Design Boutique to assist them with all the details that made this wedding a definite success. If they were looking for the best, they sure did find them! Magic descended for our couple's first dance and we are just loving the navy blue tones of our bride's outfit, delicately swinging as the sweet melodies of music carried them to that place in which only their love inhabited. I'm telling you, ladies, this feature is total bliss. So without further ado, here you have it, Alli & Shivan's full gallery thanks to Studio Nine Photography

Philadelphia, PA Indian Wedding by Studio Nine Photography

It is time for us to kick start our week big time, ladies! For that, we have exactly what you need. As you can recall, a couple of weeks ago we featured Alli & Shivan's highlight reel. It was a gorgeous cinematic experience that left us wanting for more because of its sophistication and incredible taste. Today, and thanks to the prodigious talent of Studio Nine Photography, we are back with their marvelous wedding album. For this first installment, we are going to be witnessing the delightful photo shoot and the nerve-wracking moments prior to the ceremony at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. Our enchanting Maharani Alli's dolling up process before the spree was truly magical. A glittering glam ritual! Bella Angel assisted her with the hair and makeup and you can almost feel the butterflies flying inside our bride's belly as the big moment approached. All of this as Raja Shivan and his groomsmen prepared with the ravishing attires and exotic dance moves that would later dazzle every single guest attending. Such a heartwarming celebration couldn't go unnoticed so head to our full gallery and enjoy!

Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by KetaNuva Photography

Komal and Raghav flawlessly prepared a magnificent New Jersey Indian wedding reception at the Marigold for their big families and numerous friends! Throwing a party at this scale is always a challenge, so for that particular reason Elegant Affairs Inc. jumped into the scene and designed a charming yet elegant setting with fabulous cherry trees that were lit up with creative uplights from AmpliFIRE Entertainment. This brilliant team also honored the soulmates during their first dance with a projection of their wedding monogram and a display of shimmering sparks! KetaNuva Studios captured the most spirited moments at the dance floor, the emotional speeches that were dedicated to the newlyweds and of course, the exceptional dinner that Chand Palace served to every guest! A menu of authentic Indian cuisine delighted every attendee as well as the glorious dual color wedding cake that the new husband and wife charmingly sliced. Do not forget to check the complete awe-inspiring imagery in our full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We crossed paths when we were three, met when we were 13 when I disliked him for being rude when he was actually shy as he had a crush on me. We met again when we were 19 and there was a spark but we lived on opposite sides of the world. When I moved to Boston for my LLM, we reconnected and happened to attend the same International Law Conference in New York. Spent Thanksgiving together, and talking to each other every single day on some pretext. He invited me over for New Years, cooked a lavish dinner for me, and finally admitted that he had a crush on me for all these years. When he hugged me, I finally felt home. And we just knew we were always meant to be. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was my birthday, and he planned to take me to the New York Public Library, I’m an avid reader, and I had never been, so he suggested we go walk around before having dinner in the city. Little did I know that he had something hidden in one of the many isles of the library. I stumbled upon a book with my name on it and was slightly confused. Picking it up I saw the title read ‘My love for Komal,’ by Raghav Patel. The instructions asked me to turn to a specific chapter, and when I reached the last paragraph I saw him drop down on his knees (we were in a library and I had to stop my scream), the last part was his proposal, and the book he wrote was our story, from the age of 3 to when we were 26! It was a beautiful, thoughtful, and just the best proposal ever! 
 
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.
Our wedding events spanned two continents. My sister, who’s an event planner in Hyderabad, India, took care of everything for the Mehendi, Sangeet, and the Wedding Ceremony. 
The reception was in NJ in April, and I love Cherry blossoms, so I wanted the decor to be a cherry blossom paradise, the vendors I picked For decor did a fabulous job! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted a different look for each event, and a traditional look for the wedding, the quintessential bridal red and gold. 
For the reception, I went with a deep purple gown by Jade keeping in mind the end of winter and start of spring. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
To see it all executed to the T was my favorite part, planning a wedding trying to keep everyone happy is not an easy task!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Every event had an element of fun, music, and dance to it. Our guests live the two legs of the event, one in India with the big glittery events and the concluding reception here in NJ. Most people say their favorite part was the Sangeet in Hyderabad, that made them feel like rock stars on stage, as they were that day. 
 
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.
My Haldi was a holi themed event, where after the ceremony, friends and family played Holi (my favorite festival)
Mehendi was a combination of Rajasthani folk dancers and singers and a karaoke night. 
Sangeet was a concert-style event with choreographed performances by friends and families of both sides, followed by a live band performance and a dance party.
The wedding was a traditional Rajput wedding, with the baraat going on for more than an hour, fireworks, and general merriment. 
Reception was a cherry blossom themed event, with touching speeches from the maid of honor, best man, parents. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
All those thousands of small details you stress about, absolutely no one will notice on the big day. I simply decided to stop worrying about all the things that could go wrong, and thoroughly enjoy those days with my husband, and make it one of the best memory we’ll cherish forever.
