New York, NY Indian Wedding by Ivash Studio

Valentine's Day is here! And also another featured wedding! Without a doubt, there was talent involved in Fateema & Joel's bash and we are surely taking notes! Diverse elements, colors, and vibes came together beautifully and the end result was a dreamy and luminous affair only a true Maharani could have dreamed of. This is a couple who knew exactly what they wanted so they put together an all-star team to make it happen. Sonal J. Shah Events was in charge of the planning & design of the celebration and what an event that was! The sweetheart stage at the reception was done up in bright and vivid colors that we are sure fascinated the guests. Difficult to top! As the ceremony came to an end, it was party time and DJ Shilpa knew exactly what the guests and family needed. Prior to that, she also lent her beats for the always fun baraat, that as we know, it is all things exciting and ravishing. Few things can be said when pictures speak so eloquently, thanks of course to Ivash Studio's lenses. So swoon over these pics from part two of this grand wedding in our full gallery!

Happy Valentine's Day, Maharanis! It is time for another featured wedding coming from the Big Apple, New York City!

The elegant Hilton Pearl River hosted the ceremony and reception and let me tell you, the breathtaking decorations where truly something out of this world.

East Brunswick, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Jenna Wilde Photography

We have a real summer treat with today's fusion wedding! First, Puja and Joseph tied the knot in a heartwarming double ceremony at The Estate at Farrington Lake in a special setting under a sweet white pergola! Jenna Wilde Photography captured the precious moments in time with a series of fine art photos, starting with an adorable photo shoot in the lakefront gardens and following with the traditional Hindu ceremony to honor the lovely Puja’s heritage. Our Maharani picked a stunning Sapana Amin white lehenga choli assemble for her special day and finished her look with a subtle and soft makeup by Makeup By Yoscary. To bring their faiths together, a second Christian ceremony joined Puja and Joseph that closed these moments of immense significance! The union was immediately followed by a fun time of open-air wedding games that gave this affair a charming summer vibe! Check the divine images in our full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Our story began when we matched on Dil Mil in October 2015, while I was living in Atlanta and he was in Chicago. I was interviewing for jobs in Chicago and informed Neel that I was planning to move to there once I landed a job.  As the move date approached, we decided to meet in person for the first time. This was our first date that almost didn't happen! I barely had service in my new apartment. Neel arrived downstairs and tried calling multiple times (8 to be exact), and the calls wouldn't go through. I somehow picked up just one bar of cell service in my apt and his 8th phone call finally went through! Fortunately, the rest of the date went off without a hitch and has been our favorite date so far. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Neel and I decided that at some point we wanted to move in together. Luckily, one day the apartment next door to mine opened up for leasing. We loved my apartment building and decided that we should definitely move to the apartment next door to mine. Neel knew how important it was for me and my mom that we would be engaged before we moved in together. As the move date approached, I was getting nervous that Neel forgot to order the ring or that he ordered it too late to be finished by move-in date. One week before move in, he told me that he couldn't get the ring made in time. I was frustrated initially, regardless, we decided to move forward with living together. On move-in day, after a few hours of moving, he suggested that I go pick up Indian food (which he does not like) from a Gaylord, which was my favorite Indian restaurant at the time. I pushed back and said that Gaylord was way too far to walk (1 hour of walking round trip) and that it was too hot outside to do that (July). Instead, I proposed Chipotle which was 2 blocks away and said that my brother could go pick it up while we continued the move. He hesitated and said he really wanted Indian food, which I thought was unusual. To prevent a big argument on move-in day, I kept it together and decided to go on my hour-long journey to go pick up the food. While I was gone, he quickly started to put together the items for the proposal in the new apartment. When I returned, drenched in sweat while wearing a "PIVOT" shirt (because who doesn't like Friends!?), my brother who was sitting around in the old apartment told me to go to the new apartment because Neel needed help with something. I was a little frustrated and confused on what on earth Neel would need my help with vs. asking my brother who is much stronger than me. When I walked in he had "marry me" in rose petals laid out in the living room. He proposed, we ate the Indian food, called our parents, and lived happily ever after! 
 
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 were initially having trouble finding a venue we really liked. We were looking for something different than the traditional hotel banquet room but also didn't want to have the wedding outdoors. We knew getting our parents on board for a "loft" or "rustic" wedding was going to be too difficult. Finally, we found a venue that would satisfy both our parents and us. The venue was extremely modern (floor to ceiling windows, all white interior, etc.). The venue also had a view of Lake Michigan (we would see fireworks at night during our reception since it was summertime), Buckingham Fountain, and the overall Chicago skyline. The venue ultimately led us to the theme of the wedding/reception/outfits. Given the venue, it did not make sense to bring in a ton of decorations, floral, etc. The venue itself was so beautiful and we wanted to showcase that. Therefore, our decorations were kept to a minimum and complemented the overall venue (we kept the floral and decor extremely clean & crisp looking. 
 
We selected all of my outfits from India, with my reception dress being custom made. I knew I did not want the "latest fashion" of whatever was in stock at the time I went to India. I wanted a classy and timeless look where Neel and I could look back and not say- God why in the world did we wear that!? Additionally, the outfit had to go with the venue! The dress weighed about 15 pounds and had hand embroidered gems across the entire dress. Neel chose to wear a classic black suit with a white shirt and black tie. Everyone had a pop of color with fuchsia orchids that matched the overall decor. 
 
Hair and makeup was extremely important to us and we landed the perfect person! Kate from Kate Johnson Artistry was easy to work with and very understanding of the concerns and asks that I had of her. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Definitely food tasting. Neel and I are huge foodies and wanted to develop fusion appetizer options for our guests to be a bit different from the traditional samosas, paneer tikka, etc. Our appetizer spread consisted of Madras Mac and Cheese Cups, Chaat tots, Bhelpuri, Kati tacos, chicken and waffles with a spiced drizzle of syrup. We found out that some of our wedding party (aka my brother and maid of honor) were only attending the wedding just for the appetizers! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The DJ! Our DJ was AMAZING. When we go to a typical Indian wedding, we always see the older family members sitting at the tables watching the younger guests dance. At our reception, family members who we didn't think would EVER dance were on the dance floor the whole night. The DJ was great at adapting to the diverse crowd and ensuring we all had a great time. 
 
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.
Neel and my henna event was joined, which is nontraditional. Because many of my family members had never been to Chicago, I wanted to do something very different. Neel and I love the water and decided to host a henna party on a yacht! Thankfully our parents were up for this crazy idea! Once we let the word out to our family and friends of the plans, people started to talk more about the "boat party" than the actual wedding itself. When the henna event day finally came, everything went off without a hitch- the guests enjoyed the views, drank the custom-made drinks we had made ahead of time, got henna done, and got to know each other for a solid 4 hours. Since I know our families and friends have a tendency of being late, I knew this was going to be a huge undertaking in terms of ensuring everyone arrived on time before the yacht left the dock. In order to ensure this would go off smoothly, I told all of the guests the boat was going to leave the dock at 130pm, the boat was really going to leave the dock at 230pm. Of course, everyone made it to the boat by 230 and the event actually started on time (when does that ever happen?!).

Somerset, NJ Pakistani Wedding by House of Talent Studio

Komal and Humza’s wedding dreams came true once again at the splendid Deewan Banquet. The venue was specially picked by the couple to hold their fantastic gathering, but before the reception turmoil started, these two decided to take a few moments together and seize the time to have House of Talent Studio portrayed them in a lovely outdoor photo shoot! Upbeat songs and an amazing monogram lightning by Xtensive Sound DJs created the perfect ambiance for the new Mr. and Mrs.’ big entrance and first dance. Komal changed the traditional red for a teal color dupatta that matched Humza's vest and tie. The same shade of the couple’s outfit color set the tone for the wedding details and elements, as you will see in the charming Palermo's Bakery’s wedding cake! Shahnawaz offered a wide variety of a delectable food for this unparalleled event that wasn’t just the union of two souls but two families! Check the collection of images of this insanely beautiful Pakistani marriage by House of Talent Studio in our full gallery!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was super traditional and sweet! Humza came with his family to ask my parents for my hand in marriage. It was followed by an intimate dinner with just our families. It was everything I could have ever asked for.
 
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 had a great experience with all of my vendors. Majority of them were longtime connections of my parents which made it even better. They all put their hard work into it and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would recommend each and every single one of them!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I have always wanted to be a traditional bride so of course, red was the color in mind. Luckily, I was able to find my perfect lengha in New York rather than flying out to Pakistan like most people.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Do NOT stress on the day of! It truly is one of the most important days of your life so why stress it? Everything falls into place and one thing or another is definitely bound to go wrong. My guestbook was a Polaroid album and my little cousin forgot her Polaroid camera!
 
More precious moments and heartfelt wedding memories tomorrow!
