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!

San Jose, CA South Indian Wedding by Lin & Jirsa Photography

Remember Mona & Shashank's grand vision? Well, if you thought that our first installment showcased everything that went on at the San Jose Marriott, think twice because the incredible reception was as lavish and glamorous as the ceremony. Our amazingly talented friends from Lin & Jirsa Photography never disappoint and the pictures of today's gallery are the absolute proof of their artistry. A loving shout out to them! It is also no secret that we are totally loving Maharani Mona. After the ceremony, these two lovebirds changed attires and it was time for some serious celebration. The team from Desi Jammers Entertainment was delivering the most ravishing beats around to put everyone into the dancing state we all love so much and it is safe to say that the party was just beginning! The bride came out looking out of this world. A royal blue saree for a royal Indian princess, indeed! The attire was just so chic that I almost can't believe it! Seriously, ladies, you can't miss this feature and the wonderful gallery! Join us one more time and get those dreamy ideas going!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Shashank and I met 10 years ago at UC Irvine, at first I don't think either one of us realized where we would end up. Our relationship was long distance for the majority of the time after graduating from UC Irvine. I knew he was the one very early on in our relationship, but what solidified it was the support and encouragement he gave me while we were long distance. The last year before he proposed to me, I was out of state for the majority of the time on my rotations and Shashank came and helped me move into each place I went to, and came to visit me and made me feel like I had a piece of home with me. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The proposal day was a day I will never forget! I thought Shashank and I were going out of town to celebrate his birthday. Shashank said he booked us a couple's massage however when we went to the spa the lady said it was only a massage for me and I was so confused, but I thought maybe he just surprised me with a massage, because I had recently finished up all my exams and submitted my information to get my board certification for Optometry. After my massage, I got back to our hotel room to see rose petals directing me to a dress, jewelry, purse, shoes laid out for me on the bed. There were notes throughout the room, one of them mentioned, "be ready by 6:15 pm, your special transportation crew will be here to pick you up". When I got ready I heard a knock on my door and it was my mom and sisters ready to pick me up. It was so meaningful and important for me to them being there with me. They drove me down to Pebble Beach where Shashank was waiting for me. He walked me down near the water and had hired photographers that looked like tourists to capture everything. Before Shashank was even done with his speech to ask me to be his wife I kept saying YES YES YES, I was so ready to be his fiance and eventually his wife!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think our guests loved our decorations by Raofactor, so many people were shocked when they saw our mandap, it was so neat that everyone danced under it during the reception. At the reception, we had mini donuts made by Swell Little Donuts and so many people loved those as well. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
So ever since Shashank proposed to me, all I was determined to do was to have an entrance video that captured our humor and love for one another. I wanted the video to be Bollywood theme so I created a script and we brought it to life. The video came out better than expected and we had some bloopers. It was so hard for me to keep that entrance video as a secret, but it was totally worth it because all the guests were not expecting that and they were just laughing the entire time. We played the video before we came out of the reception and it was a hit!
 
Here are the attachments of our entrance videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccxDf6m4oG4&t=11s
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Please enjoy all aspects of your wedding. I feel like with our wedding although we had condensed it down to cut out some events I was still overwhelmed and stressed out until the reception. Then, before I knew it, the whole weekend was over, I am so thankful that our wedding highlight video came out, it's so great that I can relive that weekend, but in retrospect I wish I just let go and enjoyed every aspect from the beginning because the reality is, there is only so much you do, so just sit back and soak in every moment because the wedding will fly by so fast.

San Jose, CA South Indian Wedding by Lin & Jirsa Photography

Hey there, glam seeking dolls! Today we have a very special feature that is the perfect example of what a real Maharani is all about. This Indian beauty truly was one stylish bride and we are so loving her chic and elegant vibe. Rosheen Ahmadi was recruited by Maharani Mona to assist with bridal hair & makeup and the result was absolutely to die for! The classic red and gold bridal outfit looked heavenly on her as she patiently waited for the main moment of the day to arrive. So romantic! Raja Shashank, on the other hand, rocked this champagne sherwani with details in gold and burgundy that turned him into the South Indian prince our lovely bride had dreamed of. The San Jose Marriott was the perfect place for these two lovebirds to unite their lives and families to celebrate their big time, just like only real Rajas and Maharanis do! So, looking for a real Indian wedding treat? Well, look no more because our featured gallery of today, thanks to Lin and Jirsa Photography, will leave you absolutely stunned. Let's get going!
