Orlando, FL Gujarati Wedding by Sona Photography

Good day, dolls! We are delighted to bring you an insight into Monica & Neil's lovely wedding. This celebration of love was not just elegant but truly faithful to traditional Gujarati weddings. Every small detail contributed to making this event not just classy, but exquisite. Garlands by Kirti and NJP Events & Design designed and executed this life-changing event to perfection, creating a magical and captivating decor that transformed the halls of the Omni Orlando Resort at Champions Gate into a perfect setting for such an important event! The traditional linen colors, combined with the ideal placement of the floral arrangements, were truly amazing! So much beauty could only be overtaken by the looks of our lovely Maharani, who looked ravishing after being pampered by Sumiyah, who took care of her beauty needs. And as if that wasn't enough, Monica's aunt created a fabulous Mehndi that crowned this Maharani's look adding an extra touch of traditional flair to an already flawless look, whereas Gokuls Henna Art helped all the guests with their Mehndi. Truly, this was an amazing ceremony that got captured thanks to the fascinating talent of Sona Photography. It was such an outstanding job that you'll love it! DJ Chirag Entertainment fired up the dance floor and set the musical mood for the different activities that took place during this evening! If you want to relive every detail of this celebration, you cannot miss the gallery that we've prepared for today! Enjoy it!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted to go traditional with my wedding lengha. I love the look of a classic red for an Indian wedding and thankfully found the one!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
For me, the most enjoyable part of the planning was getting to spend extra quality time with my family. They helped me with all the small details to help planning the larger tasks as well. This time I got to spend with them extra special to me.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Since our wedding was the first event after 2 years (due to the pandemic) both sides of our family was extremely excited to see the extended family and have something to celebrate. This made the celebration extra special and seeing all my family again after so long was amazing!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For any future brides I would say to just enjoy the moment! I know how much planning goes into every event and sometimes things don’t go as planned. Don’t stress about the small things and enjoy this time with your family as that is what you will remember when you look back!

I hope you have enjoyed and loved this story as much as I did. Come back for more inspiring ideas!

I am sure you'll fall head-over-heels with this magnificent shoot crafted by Sumera Jiva Choreography and their proficient team.

Even with the chilling weather during this winter evening, the team found the perfect angles to bring their vision to life. Elegance could be found in all aspects of this glorious look. The accomplished Rabia J Beauty did wonders for the makeup! As subtle and gentle as it is, the deep eyeshadow and splendid highlighter played flawlessly with the jewelry Sparkles by Simi provided. Of course, a sparkling touch is always a must to shine for your grand day! The attire's marine tones were beautifully complemented with some gloss to give vitality to the clothing. The heavenly contrast in colors from the view and the divine lengha, courtesy of Love in Designs, was a beholding sight! The phenomenal Hakim's Studio did not miss any opportunity to capture the enchanting views. His impeccable work is always a visual masterpiece, and this shoot is no exception.

Playa Mujeres, MX Indian Fusion Wedding by Killer Creations Photography

Darlings, I am excited to take you on a trip to Cancun to catch a glimpse at Krupa & Gaurav's deluxe wedding celebration! Our lovebirds got all the attention a newlywed couple could wish for, courtesy of Indian Destination Wedding. This visionary team has all the experience in South Asian weddings to offer their clients and their expertise in the Caribbean and Mexican area to plan a grand event. With their assistance, our couple found the ideal place for their wedding at Planet Hollywood Cancun, perfect for them and their loved ones to relish in the warm weather of the alluring beach while enjoying their catering services, too. With their faultless music set, Naveen Productions completed the fanciful scenery, surrounding everyone with delightful paradisiac harmonies and even a photo booth for everyone to take home a small reminder of this celebration. Now, Ladies, it is time to glorify the divine bride! Our Maharani looked just as singular with her attire from Panache by Sharmeen. I was speechless when I saw how graceful and luxurious she was! The fantastic mehndi art Neeta Desai Sherma did for her was a work of art, and so was Rema Neirma's makeup work that brought all of Krupa's seamless traits to shine! Of course, the dashing groom was brilliant, too, with his polished garments from Rajwadi. Together, Krupa & Gaurav were a sight to behold. The sweethearts had an unforgettable revelry that Killer Creations Photography and Cinematography framed forever in a picturesque set of photos. Their enchanting work with the camera wholly captured Krupa & Gaurav's love, and for all of my beloved Maharanis, we have a magnificent gallery for you to be inspired by!

Richmond, VA Indian Fusion Wedding by Studio Nine Photography

Happy Thursday, my dear Maharanis! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with love and inspiration. Let me be a part of that with the astonishing story I am about to share with you! Anjali & Suraj had a celebration full of glamour and love. The Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa/Short Pump served as their love nest for this commemoration. The flawless planning execution done by Weddings by Reema and the charming decor from Gulmohar Weddings gave the event a fresh breath of creativity. It was perfect for our Maharani's delight! Now that we are talking about Anjali, ladies, I swear her attires were heavenly! She looked like a goddess with three different fits for the celebration, including Neetu Rohra and Lista Jewels designs. You'll fall in love with all of them as well! Complemented with the graceful touch only Styles By Swati - Salon SBS can bring with her makeup artistry, our Maharani shone brighter than the stars thanks to the jewelry from Lista Jewels. Our bride was pampered by Jignasa Choksi - Mehendi Artist, and her gorgeous Mehndi design. Her sweetheart, Suraj, enamored everyone his way. The spectacular entrance he did for the Baraat couldn't have been possible without Olde Towne Carriages' services. Maharanis, he was a complete prince! This flawless wedding only got better as the night went on with music and fireworks courtesy of Luxe Event Group, making everyone burst with joy. Aroma's catering was perfect for this sweet event as the guests enjoyed their cuisine. Maharanis, I am sure every guest will take Anjali & Suraj's special day in their hearts. Studio Nine Photography + Cinema professionals made it possible by capturing a lovely set of pictures. They are all available for you in this splendid gallery. Wait no more and fall in love, ladies!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was my last year in dental school at VCU when I was introduced to Suraj through our mutual friends. Suraj was a 3rd year at VCU medical school at the time and even though we had some mutual friends, our paths had never previously crossed. I knew I was leaving for residency soon but I was excited to meet him! We ended up really liking each other and began dating. We spent a year doing 6 hour drives between Richmond and Philadelphia while Suraj finished medical school. When it was time for him to rank his residency list, he only chose Philadelphia programs (which I didn’t know at the time) and matched into his number one spot and moved up to Philly so we could finally be together!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
On a cloudy day in March, Suraj and I drove down to Richmond. He told me we were going to his Dad's retirement party (His Dad said this was the first time in his life that he had lied - just for me!). He took me to the James River, with the city skyline as our backdrop, and the sound of the rushing water. As we walked across the bridge hand in hand, Suraj asked me to continue walking with him through life in this same way. As we got to the middle, there was a bench covered with roses - and that was where Suraj bent down on one knee (I tearfully followed) and proposed! Our amazing (& very cold) sisters hid on the bridge and captured all the incredible moments. We then recreated our first date, at the spots where we first met. Finally, Suraj took me to dinner and surprised me once again with a room full of our family to end the greatest day.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My jewelry was really special to me for all the events. For my Sangeet, I wore my paternal grandmother's wedding jewelry. She had passed it down to my Mom who saved it for me for my wedding. It is an opal set that was made around the 1940s. For the wedding ceremony, I wore my Mother's wedding jewelry. It is a 'Rani haar' that my maternal grandparents had made for my Mom for her own wedding. Since all my grandparents have passed away, these little touches helped me feel like I had a small part of them at my wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A lot of my family from India could not make it to the wedding due to COVID. I was really sad to not have such a big part of my life and family there for the big day. Suraj surprised me with an amazing video of them during the Sangeet. It was a beautiful and touching video of them sharing their blessings and doing some dances. It was so emotional for me to watch that and have them virtually present for the wedding!
My cousins from the US also put together an amazing skit for us on Sangeet night. Whenever my cousins have gotten married, it's become a tradition for us to do a skit that showcases how each couple met and makes fun of them a little too! Usually I'm the skit planner and choreographer, but this time they all planned everything themselves! Which must not have been easy during a pandemic and with them all having kids! But it turned out amazing and I could not stop laughing and smiling the entire time! It was the best performance!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to remember the big picture! It is so easy to get wrapped up in the small details and making sure everything is perfect. But try to remember why you are having this wedding in the first place - to celebrate the love you two share. Try to set aside some time at some point during the events to soak it all in and appreciate the love and people you both brought together!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Having my Father passed away a few years ago, it was really important for me to have him and his memory honored at the wedding. I chose to have his picture on the mandap stage so my mom and him could "give me away" together during the ceremony. I also had a mother-daughter dance for my wedding instead of the traditional father-daughter dance.

My loves, this is all for this entry. Keep coming back for more romance!

Colorado, US Engagement Photoshoot by Hakim's Studio

Happy Tuesday, my dear Maharanis! We are eager to bring you an insight into the stunning engagement photoshoot of our couple, Amyna & Irfan. So, let's start with how gorgeous our lovebirds looked for this first event. Amyna wore different traditional dresses that made her shine in every shot. Our lovely bride chose an exquisite look for the first set of pictures, a beautiful hot pink and black dress, dark sunglasses, and loose hair. The handsome groom chose a black and white tuxedo. They both looked extraordinary! One set of pictures is never enough! Maharanis, we can see how our couple showed their love through their second outfit. Our captivating bride wore a traditional dupatta, so did the groom. I adore the way they stared at each other's eyes. These lovebirds truly represent what true love is. Last but not least, the third outfit is my personal favorite! She wore an elegant teal dress, and he wore a classy champagne tuxedo with details that complemented their looks. This couple spread their love through the most tender poses and the way they hold their hands. I adore this couple! Maharanis, every photoshoot tells a story, and you can read Amyna & Irfan's thanks to the fantastic job Hakim's Studio did. The way this team managed to capture the views, the love, and the romance between this couple is remarkable. Sweeties, if you want to take a closer look at all the magnificence surrounding this photoshoot, you cannot miss the gallery that we have prepared for you! Every single shot is impressive, and I promise they will make your heart smile!
