Woodland Park, NJ Indian Wedding by Lightyear Studio

Happy Tuesday, beautiful Maharani! If you were looking for inspiration, you've come to the right place! Rohini & Vatsal's big wedding festivities, orchestrated by Detailed Affairs Team, packs all the things we love and so much more. So get ready to enjoy it! Guests were invited to the festivities with beautiful formal wedding invitations thanks to The Royal Collection. It all started with a colorful and fun-loving Sangeet at the Hilton Hasbrouck Heights, where everyone had a great time. Hands down, it was the perfect preamble to set the mood for the gorgeous wedding ceremony that united these two lovebirds in marriage. And we have to say that we adored every single moment of the charming and solemn ceremony officiated at The One and Only Westmount Country Club. As you scroll down through this feature, you'll be amazed by the spectacular shots captured by Lightyear Studio, who immortalize every moment of this long-awaited event. The soft-colored hues on the mandap, the elegant attires, and the love these two radiated were all a winning combination that created magical scenes that we cannot stop seeing. Rohini looked ravishing on her red lengha, very well complemented with the Mehndi art by Mehndikalogie. But she was not the only one looking elegant and fashionably! Vatsal also embraced a traditional style with an elegant Sherwani that made his inner Raja come out! After the ceremony, there was a glamorous reception enlivened by M4U Events, whose endless repertoire put everyone on their feet! The only time the dancing stopped was to enjoy the sweet and delicious cake baked by Baonanas. If you can't get enough of this lovely couple, don't miss the gallery we have prepared for you today. It packs tons of beauty and glamour that it wouldn't be a bad idea to have your pen and notebook handy to take some notes!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We first met through a set up by my sister and her friend from high school, who happened to be my now-husband's employee. They thought we would be a perfect match, and they were right! Our first date (despite several last-minute cancellations on my part) was at a speakeasy in NYC. It felt like we knew each other forever. I appreciated his corny jokes and he appreciated my sass. I don't think there was ever a moment I knew Vatsal was the one - our entire relationship felt so natural and just felt like we were always meant to be together.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were in Morocco on a ten-day vacation. Our final stop in Morocco was the Sahara Desert. Little did I know, but Vatsal had initially made several plans including a beautiful layout and a private photographer, which were all thwarted by last-minute cancellations by the local vendors. This did not stop him, however, and the morning after our stay in the desert, he asked a local man to take our photo on his iPhone at sunrise. As the sun rose over the sand dunes, he got down on one knee, and the proposal was absolutely perfect!

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 began planning soon after our engagement and our first stop was to find the venue. The minute we set foot into Westmount Country Club, we fell in love. We felt so at home there, and could picture our wedding there. Bobby from Westmount was with us every step of the way, and even through the pandemic, was able to ease our worries. Everything fell into place after that. The rest of our vendors were chosen similarly, with intuition, and we usually went with our gut reactions. We chose vendors that we felt we meshed well with, and the vendors almost felt like friends (and really were at the end of this process!). Nate and Thanh from Lightyear studios made us feel so comfortable and are true artists - we both feel awkward in front of the camera but we knew Nate and Thanh would put us at ease! They were truly amazing, and their work speaks for itself. Pauline from Flawless by Pauline did my hair and makeup, and was able to help me achieve the clean, light on makeup look that I desired. Dhara from Mehndikalogie did an amazing job with my intricate mehndi. Matt from MDL events made beautiful floral arrangements. DJ Vik and the rest of the M4U events team produced a banging party. And finally, our day-of coordinators led by Arun from Detailed Affairs made our wedding day seamless. Despite being only a day-of coordinator, Arun was with us throughout the month leading up to our wedding, calming our nerves. All our vendors were truly outstanding, and helped us to have a perfect wedding day.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I really wanted a red lehenga, but one with pink accents to make it a little different than the typical wedding lehenga. Because of my work schedule in residency, I was unable to go to India to get my outfits, but my amazing sister looked for me (when she was conveniently getting her own!). Through 2am facetimes, I was able to choose a beautiful red and pink lehenga purchased from Delhi.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Cake tasting - because I have a huge sweet tooth!
In reality, wedding planning can be extremely stressful, but I tried to enjoy the moments I got to spend with Vatsal talking about our wedding. It was exciting to think about our future and spending the rest of our lives together.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The hype and the party! All guests were vaccinated and restrictions in NJ were just lifted, and this was the first time in over a year that many were attending an event. It was so exciting to see family and friends. DJ Vik and the M4U events team put on an amazing party, and our guests were dancing all night!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first look was the most special moment for me. Neither of us are criers, but we both shed (more than a few) tears when we first saw each other. It was really the only moment we had with just the two of us, and felt so intimate and personal. It was a perfect moment to start the rest of our lives.

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 Mehndi night, we wanted a Moroccan themed evening since we got engaged in Morocco. Abdel Habibi Morocco NY was amazing - he brought stunning decor and even went above and beyond to set it up last minute. He made our night so special and so reminiscent of our engagement!
Our sangeet night was held at a local hotel, and was filled with performances by friends and family, and ended with a garba/raas dance that all guests joined!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Easier said than done, but try not to stress about the small things on your wedding day! There were certainly a few things on my day that didn't go as planned, and there will be in yours too, but in the end, ZERO people noticed the things that went "wrong" and only remembered the amazing moments such as walk down the aisle, exchange of garlands, first dance, partying on the dance floor. Don't sweat the small details and try to enjoy every moment, because it's over before you know it.

There are more inspiring stories coming this week, so make sure to join us tomorrow!

Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Novia Mia Photography

Welcome back, beauties! Things can get a little complicated when getting married outside of the country. However, on Mili and Bounty's case, nothing could prevent the fabulous outcome of their events! It is just unbelievable! A dreamed ceremony at the paradisiacal lands of Cancun, Mexico fulfilled every dream that our lovebirds had for their union, and that showed us again that real love does exist. Let's not forget the talent of Katie from Alquimia Events, who contributed to the majestic decoration of this day. According to Mili, they delivered just the way they have dreamed of. The Baraat of Raja Bunty was accompanied by Drums in Paradise, whose beat made us experience not only a "wedding event" but a "life-changing event," and that also left a whole number of dancing memories on this place forever. A bride can never go wrong with traditional shades of red, and our Maharani chose a beautiful deep red lehenga from Frontier Raas that, along with Gerardo Avila's makeup and hair, gave her a flawless look. Once the ceremony ended, their guest enjoyed the music from Dj Chad Singh, a way talented DJ brought from New York, who, according to our couple, made all guests, from the youngest to the oldest dance till their feet give up on them! So amazing! If you want to get more inspiration for your wedding, don't miss the gallery thanks to Novia Mia Photography!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Just like any other Bollywood movie , me and my husband met at a mutual friends wedding in 2015. Grooved to some hit Bollywood songs and cheered to a few drinks . At that moment we didn’t know what was in store for the both of us , we just enjoyed the night . A YEAR later, we started talking day and night, the feelings became stronger for each other and boom ! I knew he was the one for me .
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My husband decided to propose to me on the day we had a Roka ceremony at his house in front of everyone .
 
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.
Wedding planning was very tough! We chose not to hire a wedding planner and we planned everything from scratch . Uncountable road trips from Belize to Cancun, in search of venues . We started wedding planning in December 2018 and didn’t find a venue till the last week of March , and we were going to get married in July , so it was crunch time for us . Atlast we found a venue and we were back and forth speaking to the team, who helped us throughout the planning process . I had everything else planned out in my head as to how exactly I wanted the decor and then met with Katie from Alquima Events to discuss , and Katie and her team did an excellent job in delivering just what I wanyed to make my dream wedding come true .      As they say , no Sindhi wedding is complete without good music , and for that I have to acknowledge DJ Chad Singh from New York who made all my guests from the youngest to the oldest person present in the events , dance till their feet give up on them . My hair and makeup was done by Mr. Gerardo Avila from chetumal. I didn’t have any trials done before my big day , as I didn’t have time to do so , however Gerardo knew exactly what I wanted.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted a unique Wedding Dress . Before going to India , I did a lot of research as to which cities and which markets are good for wedding shopping , and after doing that I concluded that Delhi is the place to go for wedding shopping , I took my mom and my aunt with me. The day we landed in Delhi, we started going to the different stores and boutiques , when we stepped into frontier raas (south ex) I knew this was the place I’d be getting my dress from and when the store personnel took out the samples , I wasn’t liking anything till she brought out a piece which I totally fell in love with and didn’t want to see anything else . I went to the trial room and tried it and I knew that this is the lengha I wanted to get married in .
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most fun part of the planning process was wedding shopping!!!  There are so many markets that sell everything you possibly need for a wedding and you get to see the different styles of dresses , vibrant colors , etc ..
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
When we got feedback directly from our guests , the most common comment was EVERYTHING was great . For some guests , it was an opportunity to have a mini vacation , for some it was a family reunion so all our guests enjoyed that weekend .
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Yes , the moment that I entered ther wedding hall and I started crying as I was so happy that what I had dreamt of, was happening. The wedding hall was so beautiful and the decor was exactly the same that I communicated with Katie from Alquima.
 
Ladies, the wedding ceremony is just around the corner. Join me!
