San Clemente, CA Indian Wedding by Top Shelf Photo

The incredibly gracious ceremony at the Bella Collina San Clemente came to an end and our lovely newlyweds were absolutely ready to start their happily ever after. Before that, a lavish celebration was a must and our couple knew that very well. For that reason, they recruited the team from Fusion Sounds who assisted with the lighting decor and also curated a playlist for the ages that kept all guests dancing and having a blast on the dance floor. Our gorgeous Maharani Mansi's wardrobe choice was this beautiful long white gown that was a total knockout. She was glowing from top to toe! If glittering glam is what you are searching, be sure that you'll find it here in our gallery of today thanks to Top Shelf Photo. So let's wait no longer and join us for Mansi & Brett's enchanting reception gala!

Hey there, loves! Today, and for your delight, we have a very special outdoor fusion wedding that has me smiling from cheek to cheek. Mansi & Brett's vision was an elegant and sober spree that screams style and glam so loudly! Seriously, features like this just make me so happy, the love they display in the pictures courtesy of Top Shelf Photo is to die for. So romantic! Our gorgeous Maharani Mansi came out looking absolutely stunning, her heavenly beige saree with orange sherbet features, truly turned her into a beautiful middle eastern princess capable of wrapping the world around her finger. With all this glitter around, it was natural that our couple recruited the team from The Marigold Company, who helped with the planning and design of the jubilee and what an amazing job they did! The dapper Brett reached the wedding venue in a fabulous Raja style that was completed with a beautiful steed from Enchanted Carriages! We are loving this first installment and we are sure you are going to love it too, ladies, so come and take a peek of today's gallery and get inspired!

Troy Hills, NJ South Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Welcome back, ladies! After a ceremony for the ages that saw our couple unite their lives together for eternity, it was time to celebrate the milestone with a grand bash that only true Maharanis and Rajas are able to craft. The guests and newlyweds moved to the reception hall of the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel and as you can imagine, it was looking absolutely amazing. We are loving the different tones of blue used for the draping, decoration, and breathtaking floral arrangements that surely marveled every single one of the guests. Such a romantic setup and thanks to none other than Nirali Decor's blueprint! As we know, the ever-present liveliness of the Hindu rhythms can't be missing from the bashes. Dhoom Events Indian Wedding DJ understood that very well and came up with a ravishing playlist that for sure gave a new meaning to the word "celebration". Few things can be said when the images speak so eloquently. For that reason, now, it is time to dive into our gallery by Lightyear Studio and see it for ourselves. Let's get to it!

Troy Hills, NJ South Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

You know what time it is, Maharanis! It is time for another awe-inspiring wedding that we know is going to put a smile on those beautiful faces, so get ready! Our glam complices for the day? The team from Lightyear Studio of course. They never fail to impress with their incredible images so be sure, ladies, that this picture gallery is truly a work of art. Just like our Maharani's look during all the ceremonial rituals that went on at the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel in New Jersey. Our bride came out looking out of this world. Her orange sherbet lengha with details in gold, coral and emerald green was something out of a fairy tale and we are just loving every inch of it. Looks by Jassi, as we know, has everything always under control and this time was no exception. The work done with the hair and makeup of our Maharani Shuvya speaks for itself. Truthfully enchanting to say the least. The South Indian style of this spree is everywhere so do not forget to have a piece of paper and a pen at hand because ideas are just bubbling with this one. Join us in our full gallery for more!

Bethpage, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Vivid Capture Studio

After the incredible contemporary fusion wedding ceremony, the newlyweds and guests moved to the reception hall of The Sterling to start the joyous bash Sofia & Gaurav had prepared. The place was looking magical to greet everyone and was also set to give an experience of almost being in both India and Costa Rica. So creative! Maharani Sofia didn't even need extra touch-ups after all the emotion of the ceremony. Not a gram of glam was lost and that was also thanks to the amazing work of Looks by Jassy who assisted with her hair and makeup look! Seriously, our bride knew she needed the best so she got the best. After all the choreographies and dancing that went on, the guests were needing a sugar rush to keep on dancing and having an amazing time. Lucky for all, the team from Francesco Bakery know their game to perfection and brought the sweet wonders that make them, the go-to pastry shop. Fun was assured all night long! Want to see the rest of the spree? Check the full gallery thanks to Vivid Capture Studio and get that inspo going!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in college in New York while studying for our Master's Degree.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had spoken to our parents on Diwali 2017 and they both were incredibly happy to hear that we wanted to be together and gave us their blessings. Our official proposal happened on our Ring Ceremony in India! On February 2018 in front of both our sets of parents, his brothers, wife and fiance and extended family, he bent the knee! And put a ring on it and I put a ring on him as well!
 
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 went to a couple of Dulhan Expo's in New Jersey and that's where I met Neha from Ask Neha Now. I met several other wedding planners but something just clicked with her; especially the part where she is incredibly attentive to details and organized. Once we decided on the package, I set out to look for venues while my fiance was "stuck" in India. I went to a couple of places that I really liked but they weren't suited for the type of function that we wanted to do. I emailed another place and almost canceled the appointment but I'm so glad that I didn't as it was The Sterling and the place just blew my mind; the best part was that their packages included decoration, DJ, Video & Photo, and the food. My fiance and I had a fun time going to The Sterling several times for food tasting and decor picking. 
 
Our Sangeet place was another one of my initial choices for the wedding but for us, it was better suited in terms of Sangeet. The people at Bellozino were very attentive and we got a great package as well with decoration, photo, video, and food. We were so lucky to find two high-quality venues which included most of the vendors; that really saved us time. 
 
In terms of makeup, I was referred to Jassi of Looks by Jassi by Neha; I was hesitant to make the trek out to Staten Island but it was oh so worth it! I consider Jassi my wedding's fairy godmother; she was so kind and listened to what I wanted and she even held the phone so I could facetime my mom during the makeup trial. She's a true artist, a professional and a warm-hearted person. She was also able to contact the person who did the hair for my Mother in Law and Sister in Law.
 
I got the saree for the Sangeet at Manyavar & Mohey as well; one of my favorite colors is turquoise and I knew I just had to have this gold and turquoise saree for my Chunni ceremony. My Mom was amazing at helping materialize what we wanted in terms of gift bags for the favors; she met with different vendors in Costa Rica until she found "Mas Que Bordados"; Vanessa was incredibly patient; she created different logos and gave us thread color options and patiently opened each jute bag to add the logo. Mom also coordinated with Cafe Britt the shipment of Costarrican coffee for the favors and the chocolate covered fruit and coffee treats for the Sangeet.
 
She also spoke with "Munecas de Trapo Raquel" to create felt dolls of me and my Groom; mine had the typical Costa Rican attire and his had a Nehru vest with the Groom turban and spoke with a wood carver to create 2 toucans representing us to be displayed at the Sangeet. The "Carnival Hour" is something that happens in Latin American weddings; this is where people get masks and necklaces and whistles and we all go around doing like a conga line; we decided that this would be a fun addition and a surprise to our Indian guests so my mom purchased the masks and whistles, I got the necklaces online and got our special masks for me and my Groom.
 
As an additional fun touch on the Sangeet night, I purchased temporary tattoos of the Costarrican and Indian flags. We also reached out to wedding cake topper on Etsy & Instagram for our elephant cake topper; We boh love elephants; she was able to customize the flower and bowtie with my choli color. The cake was made by Francesco's bakery; we wanted a classic Italian romantic style cake with peonies as for Latin Americans peonies are auspicious. 
 
Both our "save the date" and invitations were made with plantable paper from ForeverFiances; we chose the Ganeshji design for the Invitation and a peacock feather for the save the date. The red tape that the groom cut and the Dulhan Ke Saheli pins that the bridesmaids wore were purchased after I did extensive research on decoration and details and I got them from DesignTukTuk. I also reached out to Apoorva from  LittleIndia Etsy who created our wedding program. We got a rough draft from the Pundit; I rewrote the program, added a few details and Apoorva created the images next to each step. In terms of color scheme, I chose orange for the bridesmaids and bridesmen! The ladies wore orange sarees and the lads wore Nehru jackets in orange color. For my mom, I knew I wanted her to wear a silk saree so we went with a color that wouldn't clash and for y dad, I got a Nehru jacket with a red detail similar to my lehenga.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was leaning towards blue in the beginning, even ordered some fabric from India but it didn't appeal to me as it didn't make me feel like a Bride. We went to Manyavar & Mohey in New Jersey and I saw this beautiful gold lehenga with embroidery and a few accents in red and I just fell in love. I didn't want to wear a completely red outfit or a completely gold outfit. I tried a couple and face timed my mom from the store. Once she saw me in the one I had originally liked she started crying and I knew that was the ONE.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Sharing the planning with my fiancee. He was incredibly involved, giving his opinion and suggestions and we were able to truly put our stamp in the wedding.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We had guests from many different places in the world and I have to say that they all enjoyed how we brought our cultures together; despite it being a Hindu religious ceremony we had Costarrican touches throughout the Sangeet and the Reception. The coffee lovers enjoyed the coffee; everyone was gushing about our wedding favor bags which contained a guava candy from Costa Rica, a small bag of coffee and 2 Ladoo. They had so much fun at the "Carnival Hour" My very picky Indian friends loved the food And I think everyone enjoyed the special dance I did after our Couple's Dance which was fun but we botched it a bit.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When the chapel doors opened and I was about to begin walking towards the mandap and I saw my fiance wiping tears from his eyes.
 
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.
For our Sangeet Night, we had a loveseat and two small stools next to it. We chose gold and red to be the backdrop colors even though those are not the "Traditional sangeet colors" but such is our aesthetic. The signature look of this decorator is a red sphere inside an oval jewelry looking metal shape.
 
We had 3 dances prepared for that night. Since I used to be in Bollywood dance lessons with a few of the ladies I asked 2 of the bridesmaids to join my 3 dancing friends into doing a dance, they danced to Eena Meena Dika, Mere Hathon and Rangilo Maro Dolna (the choreography was created by Shachi Phene founder of Noor Dance Academy in NYC and I tweaked a few things to make it easier for the non-dancers. The second dance was by a friend and her daughter they danced to Mahi Ve and Nagada Sang Dhol. The third dance was with me and my dancing friends; we danced to Kala Chashma and Banno; we used sunglasses as props on Kala Chasma it was very fun!. We had a Mehndi artist @sabrinahenna doing mehndi for the guests. We also had at the entrance a table with the chocolate covered fruit and coffee beans, the flag stickers, the toucan and the ragdoll couple.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Breathe! Breathe! Breathe! Be relaxed and assertive but make sure you have a clear direction of what needs to be done so that you aren't running at the last minute. Enjoy the process as much as you can, make sure your voice is heard and don't worry about ruffling a few feathers; it's your day after all!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I purchased bouquets for the bridesmaids at Home Depot :) Peonies. The chaadar was built with roses and carnations, this was done by Pooja of The Sterling. The malas were made of light pink and coral roses and my bouquet was made with real Peonies as well. My Bridal mehndi was done by @SabrinaHenna and it incorporated the elephants as well. In terms of jewelry, I wanted good quality jewelry and did some research; finally, I began my communication with Akanksha, the owner of Naiyrah @nayirahofficial, where I purchased my entire bridal set. I was so happy with the quality of the products that I agreed to them doing a spread on me in their Instagram so my photos are there together with a few Bollywood Celebrities I thought that was a fun fact :) My lovely bridesmaids purchased the Kalire for me and my parents got the choora as well.

See you in a bit for more glam and charm from our brides!
