The reception at the Chicago Marriott Southwest at Burr Ridge was definitely something, so elegant and sophisticated that we just had to share it with you, ladies! Can't get enough of this sweet duo either? Make your way to the second installment of today's gallery for the all lovey-dovey you can handle!

Chicago, IL Fusion Wedding by WS Photography

This stunning bride is Nidhi, and she is seriously looking as lovely as any bride could be on her wedding day. The portraits by WS Photography really showcase this gorgeous Maharani and pick up every little elegant detail of the outfit worn. From the rich light violet eyeshadows to the striking mehndi design on her toes and hands, be sure, ladies, that this bride is just overwhelmingly stunning. We loved the champagne overlay over her cherry red and gold lengha! It was a stylish and delicate combination with just the right burst of color. So amazing! The playfully adorable portraits of our bride with her groom are just an absolute delight as well. We can't wait to bring you their reception look! But in the meantime, you need to check out the gallery for exclusive details on their wedding ceremony and all the highlights moments at the lovely Chicago Marriott Southwest at Burr Ridge. Let's get to it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Tyler and I were set up by my childhood best friend, Julie, who was Tyler went to college with. She really went all out trying to get us together. She sent each of us pictures of the other constantly until finally we started talking. She was right because we really hit it off. Our first date was just supposed coffee which turned into an 8 hour "unicorn" date (our friend Dave came up with the term). I knew we had something special when we could spend almost entire day together and were still constantly chatting afterward.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Northern Wisconsin for my birthday weekend. I didn't really think it was anything besides a birthday trip because we typically take one each year.  On our trip Tyler wanted to take me to Bond Falls which is a waterfall in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan that he visited a lot as a child. When we got to the bottom of the waterfall and popped the question. It was so private, romantic, and perfect. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Since we had a fusion wedding we really wanted to represent both cultures and sides. So for the ceremony I really wanted to go traditional Hindu. I had already decided on a deep red/maroon with gold. We shopped all around Ahmadabad and Baroda until I found the perfect color and detailing.

For the reception gown I decided with a western white gown. Since my mother-in-law and friends weren't with me in India when I got my wedding lengha I really wanted to share the experience with them. I knew I wanted off white and lace, and luckily found something amazing the first day shopping!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The dancing and the food were big hits at our wedding. The entire weekend was a party. For a lot of people, especially Tyler's family this was their first time experiencing an Indian Wedding and they had a blast with all of the traditions. The dance floor at the reception was overflowing and everyone from little kids to aunts and uncles danced the night away. My cousin even performed a roller skating routine on the dance floor. I know the bride is supposed to be the star but everyone saw how much fun Tyler was having and it was contagious. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Tyler and I got some time during cocktail hour to just spend time together. We got to see the reception space before everyone else and just got to soak in the weekend. It was great to steal away some time with just the two of us.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The week of the wedding just try to relax and enjoy the moment. You worked so hard during the planning process and this is really the time to take it in and enjoy. I promise the little things that might not work out exactly right won't even be a concern. It's all about spending time with friends, family, and most of all your love!

 

Part two is coming, ladies, stick around!

Chicago, IL - TX Muslim Wedding by Mir Anwar Studios

Welcome back, loves! After witnessing both Mehndi and Muslim celebrations and all of their glam and elegance, it is now time for the long-awaited main ceremony and the reception afterward, held at the Omni Downtown Dallas, which was fabulously decorated by Wedding Decor By Faiza. Maharani Shaleen's gorgeous violet lengha is without a doubt one of my all time favorites. Its exquisiteness and style are just too much! A middle eastern princess indeed! Also, we can't forget about the person who swept our bride of her feet. Raja Sabih was looking totally sharp, rocking a satin black sherwani with details in gold and wine that was a total knockout. Seriously, this couple truly made their vision come true and we are loving every aspect of it. Noblesse at its finest! The union was held at the exclusive Bolingbrook Golf Club, skillfully decorated by the striking floral arrangements and taste of none other than Yanni Design Studio. We are madly loving this feature, Maharanis, we are sure you are just going to love it as well, so, enough with words and let's get with the pictures thanks to Mir Anwar Studios and their talent. Click down below for part two of our gallery and relive one more time what went on for Shaleen & Sabih's espousal bash.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Some background to this story is that I love to read. A few months prior to proposing, I was at Target running errands and ended up in the book section unable to make up my mind as to which book I should buy. Sabih called me just to see what I was up to and I told him my dilemma that there so many books I wanted to read but couldn't pick just one. He asked me the names of the books on my must-read list. I told him and eventually left Target thinking I'd buy the books later. Fast forward to July 2017. I went to Dallas to celebrate Sabih's birthday with him (we were long distance) and he took me to the botanical gardens the day before his birthday. We walk down to a portion of the gardens with a bench on the bench are a stack of the same books that I mentioned I wanted a few months back. Along with those books is another really beautiful book. Sabih asks me to sit down, tells me he's going to read me a story. He opens the book and each page tells a story about my life from my childhood days to when I first met Sabih and our time together. He handwrote each page and drew pictures of the house I grew up in, the masjid I pray at and so much more.  The very last page of the book said "will you marry me" and the ring was placed in the book. There was a photographer nearby who was able to capture every moment. 
 
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.
Excel sheets, a supportive family and friends and my husband were the reason the wedding was everything I imagined it would be and more. I made sure to book venues and makeup and photographers first since those book fast. I knew what colors I wanted my mehndi outfit to be and then led to color and theme for the wedding. I wanted a festive almost Aladdin themed mehndi. I wanted to the Shaadi to be a candlelight dinner. My goal was for each event to be different from the last. I made my vision clear the vendors, had multiple follow up visits to make sure we were all the same page. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My mom, sister and cousins all came to Pakistan with me to help me pick out a lengha. I knew I wanted a deep shade of red. I went to a ton different places but nothing gave me that bridal feeling until I tried the deep red outfit at Farah Talib. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Because Sabih and I were pretty hands-on with the planning, the best part was seeing what we envisioned come to life. My mom was my right hand and I loved that the planning process allowed us to spend more time together. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the food, decor, and dances. My dad was in charge of managing the caterers and assured that everyone was able to enjoy the different cuisines we had (American, Pakistani, Chinese and Mexican food). Both my side and Sabih’s side worked hard to put together a medley of dances that the crowd really enjoyed
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Sabih and I didn’t do a first look so the first time I see him on our wedding day was when I walked down the aisle. I was nervous walking in front of everyone but as soon my eyes met Sabih’s everything felt better. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Live in the moment. It’s the best time of your life so don’t get caught up in little details not going your way. Take in each moment and enjoy it. 
 
Remember ladies, more every day!

Chicago, IL - TX Muslim Wedding by Mir Anwar Studios

Happy Monday, ladies! We are very excited about the feature we have for you today. Ideas and inspiration are completely assured! No less, our gorgeous Maharani Shaleen was all things glamorous and enchanting for her big day and her style was to die for. This gorgeous Muslim wedding took place both, in Chicago for the traditional ceremonies and in Dallas for the reception. For this first installment, we will be witnessing the Muslim and the Mehndi ceremonies held at the Windy City and what an incredible set of celebrations they were! For the Mehndi ceremony, the lovely couple had matching outfits. They chose a coral, light turquoise, and beige/gold color palette that was as modern and elegant as it could get. Everyone was completely stoked! Good thing that our friends from Anmol Catering were there after the Mehndi celebration to pamper the guests with the delicious food they are distinguished for. For the Muslim union, our bride came out looking dazzling, of course. She rocked a white gown with little details in silver that left us totally speechless. So alluring! There is a lot going on that you definitely have to see it for yourself. So join us for part one of our gallery of today thanks to Mir Anwar Studios and get that inspo going!

Newark, CA Indian Fusion Wedding by Aiya Photography

Welcome back loves! For your delight and inspiration, we have an incredibly sophisticated and stylish feature that you can't miss. Kasey & Keshlyn for their nuptials decided to merge both of their backgrounds and have two separate weddings that were absolutely incredible. The western ceremony was as beautiful as you would expect from two souls that love each other madly. Our gorgeous Maharani wore a long white gown with enchanting lace details in the front that made her look completely stunning. The beautiful bouquet was crafted by Dana's Flower Basket and I'm just loving the color combination on it. The violet, coral and white flowers were truly a glam pro-pick as we will see. The elegant Raja Keshlyn's choice was a light grey tux with a violet toned bowtie that was an absolute knockout. No wonder why Maharani Kasey chose him as her prince! These two lovebirds swore everlasting love to one another and our friends from Aiya Photography were there to capture every single moment of that important milestone in their lives. So, without further ado, here we have Kasey & Keshlyn's dazzling celebration in our full gallery!
