Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Novia Mia Photography

Welcome back, Maharanis! Can you imagine joining your life to the person you've always dreamed of at the most epic beach location? The outdoors from the magical Paradisus Cancun witnessed this captivating scene between our lovely maharani Bhrugini and Raja Vishal. And we can't get enough of their beautiful day! The images of Novia Mia Photography show us every detail of this phenomenal ceremony. Raja Vishal observed with admiration the arrival of his dazzling maharani, who also left everyone in awe for her splendid natural beauty that was certainly enhanced thanks to the talent of Styling Trio. She was a dream come true! Everything was exactly as our lovebirds planned and envisioned thanks to the splendid job of the one and only, Preeti Vasudeva. Thumbs up for her! The venue looked amazing, the aqua and white colors for the mandap matched perfectly with the magical waters of one of the most spectacular beaches in Mexico. There is no doubt that the skills of Alquimia Events made this place look phenomenal. Once the ceremony was over DJ USA turned the night on with fantastic music that made everyone had a blast. Choreographies, great food, family time, and of course, the memories of a unique love were the perfect combination of elements to create a grand celebration. To relive this love story, make sure to visit our gallery. I bet you will get tons of inspiration with this tropical wedding spree!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Vishal and I met through a dating app. On a very cold Wednesday night in March 2016, just like everyone else, I was watching the usual lifeless soaps when my phone beeped. The on-screen notification displayed “Congrats! Vishal is madly in love with you” (or something along those lines ;)). I clicked on Vishal's profile to find he was hollering at me all the way from MX. I was a bit skeptical but decided to msg him anyway and this is how it went...
Bhrugini: “hey how's it going? do you really live in MX?”
Vishal: “Hi there, it’s going well. Wait, is it on my profile because I don't recall adding my location? or Are you a stalker? Because that would be interesting in its own way."

Since day 1 our conversations had a natural flow, followed by an amazing 3-day date in NYC to our first trip to Cabo (which pretty much started off with us missing our flight and Vishal being extremely sick the entire trip); from this very eventful week in Mexico we knew we could get through anything together and I also found out that he is my kind of crazy :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After dating for about a year, Vishal and I planned for our families to meet for the first time in New York. Since Vishal lived in Mexico at the time I had no idea a proposal would even be on the surface because when would he have time to go ring shopping ;). To add to my surprise, Vishal had already custom designed my beautiful engagement ring, asked my dad for permission to marry me and had our families in on the proposal. I’m still amazed at how everyone was able to keep it a secret.  On the proposal day our families met during the day and in the evening Vishal had planned a dinner with both of our siblings at his cousin’s brand new restaurant, Queens Bully.  Vishal being so detailed he even planned where I would sit at the dinner table so that I couldn’t see anyone else coming in. At dinner, Vishal thanked everyone for coming and then moved on to saying some of the sweetest things about me/us (and I was still so clueless about what was to come) until he got down on one knee and popped the question....I was completely shocked and couldn’t stop smiling and after a few seconds Vishal asked “so is it a yes?” And I said of course YES! I then turn around to find our families standing there and slowly an army of his friends joined in on the celebrations. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect proposal.

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.
Vishal mentioned the idea of a destination wedding to make the celebrations even more fun for us and our family and friends. I hadn’t really considered it until then because I wanted all the traditional events and my entire family/friends to be part of my big day. We talked to our parents and after doing some research learned that we could have both, so we decided to move forward with it. We had gone to scope out a venue in Cancun but weren't too happy with it.  Luckily, during the same trip I called the Paradisus wedding department to request an appointment and they were able to accommodate us the same day.  We went to see the venue and instantly fell in love.  Planning a wedding in another country is a challenge in itself, fortunately there have been many Indian weddings in Cancun, MX so it was a matter of finding the right Vendors and getting into the details with each to bring our vision to life.  Our siblings/cousins stepped in and saw everything through each event during the wedding week which was a great help. As far as the decor, Vishal and I are both of the opinion “less is more”. All of our events were held outdoors/in open areas so we could enjoy the deep blue ocean and the resorts Zen garden backdrops. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a simple red outfit in mind and was pretty sure of the style, etc. However when I actually went shopping in India, after about 3 hours there was no sight of a simple red outfit. I branched out to other colors and as soon as I tried on the wedding outfit, both my parents and I said this is it! Cream with neon green and pink, never would’ve thought of this combination but loved it!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Vishal and I making decisions together, even if we didn't agree on everything we learned to compromise.   I also appreciated the unconditional support from our families through the process. Lastly, the dessert tasting because we both have a sweet tooth!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The fact that it was a destination wedding and it was a first Indian destination wedding in both of our families. Everyone loved the resort, the music at the wedding reception (we had lot of wedding crashers from the resort), DJ Juicy from DJUSA is the best DJ ever, a full Gujarati meal after the wedding ceremony (my sister-in-law taught the non-Guju caterers how to make most of the dishes over the phone/txt msgs) and most importantly relaxing which is unheard of at Indian weddings since there are so many events and a lot of sleepless nights and running around.  Finally, the way the days were planned out; with the events all ending on Friday night, most people stuck around for the weekend and we all got to hang out post wedding; instead of flying out the day after the wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It’s hard to choose one because there were so many moments that actually constantly replay as if it was yesterday... our first look on the day of the wedding (filled with so many emotions), our first dance, the heartfelt speeches, the amazing dance performances, super packed dance floor, the look on Vishal's face when he saw the surprise fireworks, my crazy husband, some of his groomsmen and my brothers jumping in the pool at the reception, and seeing everyone smiling and showering us with love there and from afar. Still feels so surreal...

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t sweat the small stuff.  Relish every moment of the wedding planning including the stressful ones and when things go awry. The wedding WILL be beautiful! :)

 

I hope you love this wedding as much as I do! Let me know in the comments below.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Both of our cousins went to college together and decided they should set us up. I waited for a while for him to at least add me on Facebook, which he did not. After a couple of weeks, I ended up just taking the plunge and adding him because lets face it, he was taking too long. We messaged each other for a about a week and that turned into phone calls. Not a day has gone by in the past 6 years that we haven't spoken.
 
I used to imagine my wedding day and the person standing next to me always had a blank face. Until one day, all I could imagine was him standing by my side. I guess there wasn't really one moment that I knew he was the one. Over time I couldn't imagine my life without him. Also, I always said that whoever I married had to love Bollywood movies as much as I did. Subin actually loves it MORE than I do, of course he's the one!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Subin tried so hard to make the proposal a secret but he started "leaking" as we called it here and there. My family was not that subtle either. He told me to make sure I was dressed to impress every weekend for a month (because that's realisitc).  My cousins brought be into NYC to Paley Park. There he was standing in front of the beautiful waterfall with flowers, candles and our initials. I honestly don't remember what he said to me because I was so shocked (even though I knew it was going to happen). He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I don't even know if I said yes, I just stuck my hand out, I guess that's a yes! After the proposal, he had arranged dinner with our families at a penthouse and then we went out to a lounge where we were surrounded by our closest friends and families. It was a great night!
 
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.
Subin and I from the start said that if we had a good feeling about a vendor, we should run with it. Thats exactly how we chose each one of our vendors and it honestly worked out perfectly.
 
The first thing we knew we had to book was the church and venue. We looked at a few places and luckily found a church and venue that were close to each other. I loved the castle look of the Sheraton Parsippany and the venue coordinators were so helpful and accommodating for the large crowd we were bringing in.
 
I have a family friend who I knew since I was young who became a makeup artist. I've always known that I would ask her to do my makeup for my wedding not only because she's amazing but also because I trusted her. She also recommended me to my hair stylist who was able to do my whole wedding party. They were just so easy to work with.
 
Choosing a photographer was really important to my husband because he's really big on photography. We looked at a few companies, however, the talent and quality of Tina Doshi and the KSD team were unbeatable. Tina made us feel so comfortable and listed to what we wanted while also giving us great recommendations. Again, just so easy to work with, which is what you want. 
 
Wedding planning was not easy, however I felt like somehow everything fell into place at the right moments. We tried not to stress over things; if something didn't work out, then it just wasn't meant to be. We knew something better would come along.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted to go to Kleinfeld to get my wedding dress. I had done a lot of research on the different styles that I liked. I ended up looking on their website before going in for my appointment and fell in love with this one fit and flare lace dress that had the most unique train I had ever seen. I had it printed and ready for my appointment. When I got there, they told me that they didn't have that dress in stock anymore. I was so bummed but there had to be something I would love just as much. They brought in exactly 5 dresses into my dressing room. I tried on 3 of them and couldn't commit. The last dress I tried on looked very familiar. The front like the one I had chosen online, but the train was the exact one that I had loved. They ended up showing me the exact same dress in a different brand, but didn't realized that it was the same one. I knew right away there was no other dress! My appointment lasted exactly an hour. When you know, you know!
 
A couple months later, I went to India to find my wedding saree (mandragodi) and reception lengha. The saree was easy to find in Kerala, because when I saw it I knew. However, my family wasn't easily convinced. Again, this was the 4th saree I had seen. (was 4 my lucky number?)  My theme was pink and gold and I ended up getting a hot pink saree. After they put the saree on me, that's when my family realized this was it.  I traveled to Delhi for my lengha and this time 4 was not my lucky number. I tried on so many lenghas on that day. I didn't think this would be harder then choosing my wedding dress. It came down to 2 lenghas and of course I ended up picking up the PINK one! Im so glad I chose that one. It was so beautiful, I still think about it!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the most enjoyable part was just being able to spend time with my now husband. Although there were times we some tense times, we learned a lot about each other, which is important in a relationship. I think we had the same mind set in that we not only wanted to make this day memorable for us, but for our guests too. I feel like a lot of times people are just trying to one up each other. We made it a point to focus on what was important to us and do things that would make us happy.  Also, going to dress fittings, food and cake tastings, and hair and makeup trials were also really fun and such stress relievers.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The best comment we received after our wedding was, "I felt like I walked out of a live Bollywood movie". This wasn't our exact intention, however, I'm really glad that people felt like this. We both love Bollywood so to hear that was great. I felt like everyone loved every part of the wedding. from the food, to our first dance. We also have big families so both sides did their own family dance. People were amazed with the how both sides pulled off such a massive performance. It was really great to hear feedback from friends from school and work who are not used to seeing our culture.
 
Sheraton did a great job with making sure people were not waiting for food or drinks and that there was enough space for such a large party. Guests felt like they were able to move around freely in a sea of 500 people. They also really loved that the venue was a hotel. After a long night of drinking, you could just go back to your room and everyone was safe.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I have two special moments that I always replay. One was my parents speech. My dad had wrote the speech weeks before and I helped fix his grammar. Even when I was fixing it, I found myself getting choked up because he talked about things I didn't even think he remembered. I figured if I get it out of my system now, then I won't cry at the wedding. WRONG, I couldn't control it at all. I had read and fixed this speech so many times and knew exactly what he was going to say, yet still I cried because he delivered it so perfect and genuinely. 
 
Another moment was the family dance. I knew it was happening and I knew it took a lot for my cousin to pull it off, however seeing people who don't dance get out of their comfort zone just for me was amazing. They did such an amazing job. I can't tell you how many times I have watched the video. Im probably going to go watch it again after this.
 
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.
Subin's cousin actually also used the same decorators a year before us. They had such a good experience with them that we decided to also use them. They were so helpful in creating our vision. I wanted a pink and gold theme and that's exactly what they delivered. They were so easy to work with even with adding things later on.
 
People were also impressed with the little things which I didn't even think would was a big deal. For example, we had gift bags waiting for everyone at the hotel and it was such a big hit for something so small.
 
 I ended up making all of my bridesmaid bouquet and people are still texting me about how it was made and what I used.
 
At the end of the ceremony there are some traditional things that need to happen. However, before that we were taking family pictures in the church. Our brothers set up an ice cream truck outside the church for those waiting which was a big hit.
 
At the end of the reception, we had a doughnut and coffee station right outside the reception hall where  guests could satisfy their sweet tooth at the end of the night.
 
We also had an after party right in the hotel for those guests who weren't done partying. It was all just a great time.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Get a day coordinator!!!! I think this was one of the best decisions we made. Wedding planning is stressful, but the one day you don't want to be stressed is the day of. Our day coordinators worked with us to make the perfect timeline. I really had to force myself to just let go of the reigns and be in the moment, and I'm so glad I did. We had a 4 person team from Eventify LLC and they were so efficient and helpful. It never felt like they were just doing a job. They made sure that we were on time to the second but also that we were having a blast. They were also just genuinely nice people to work with.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I bought most of my jewelry from India. Im so happy I was able to go there to get all the bridal essentials. I also found great deals on Amazon for Indian jewelry, which was pretty surprising. Amazon is amazing! I bought all the materials for my bridesmaids bouquets, all of my flower girls dresses and baskets, and everything for our welcome bags.
 
When I went to India we had Subin's shirvani and shoes specially made. They were so good at making exactly what we wanted.
 
Our cake topper was super funny. Subin is a big gym guy and always wants me to go with him. The topper really portrayed our relationship with the gym!
 
The dance floor was also a big hit with the guests. We had an LED light up dance floor. Im so glad we actually went through with it because it turned out so beautiful and fun. It pulled everything together.
 
A big shout out to our DJTM who kept the reception and music running smoothly. The MC was an old friend from college who knew my family well so we didn't have to worry about him at all. And of course the DJ's were my cousins, so I had absolutely nothing to worry about. They knew exactly what we liked so it was perfect!

At the end of the reception, we had a doughnut and coffee station right outside the reception hall where  guests could satisfy their sweet tooth at the end of the night.
 
We also had an after party right in the hotel for those guests who weren't done partying. It was all just a great time.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Get a day coordinator!!!! I think this was one of the best decisions we made. Wedding planning is stressful, but the one day you don't want to be stressed is the day of. Our day coordinators worked with us to make the perfect timeline. I really had to force myself to just let go of the reigns and be in the moment, and I'm so glad I did. We had a 4 person team from Eventify LLC and they were so efficient and helpful. It never felt like they were just doing a job. They made sure that we were on time to the second but also that we were having a blast. They were also just genuinely nice people to work with.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I bought most of my jewelry from India. Im so happy I was able to go there to get all the bridal essentials. I also found great deals on Amazon for Indian jewelry, which was pretty surprising. Amazon is amazing! I bought all the materials for my bridesmaids bouquets, all of my flower girls dresses and baskets, and everything for our welcome bags.
 
When I went to India we had Subin's shirvani and shoes specially made. They were so good at making exactly what we wanted.
 
Our cake topper was super funny. Subin is a big gym guy and always wants me to go with him. The topper really portrayed our relationship with the gym!
 
The dance floor was also a big hit with the guests. We had an LED light up dance floor. Im so glad we actually went through with it because it turned out so beautiful and fun. It pulled everything together.
 
A big shout out to our DJTM who kept the reception and music running smoothly. The MC was an old friend from college who knew my family well so we didn't have to worry about him at all. And of course the DJ's were my cousins, so I had absolutely nothing to worry about. They knew exactly what we liked so it was perfect!

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 awe-inspiring Paradisus Cancun full-filled 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 complete 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 romance team at Paradisus Cancun , 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.
 
See you again tomorrow, ladies! Make sure to be prapared to be dazzled by another great big fat Indian wedding.

Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Novia Mia Photography

Good morning ladies! Today you are invited to share the love story between Mili and Bunty that began back in 2015 in a mutual friend weeding. Who would believe that this lovely duo will be presenting today their fairy tale story? After a three months search of venues from Belize to Cancun, Mili and Bunty found the perfect place to proclaim their eternal love, the fantastic Paradisus Cancun! This luxury resort in the heart of the Mexican Caribbean was designated to host all the magnificent events. You will enjoy first the fantastic Mehndi images, thanks to Novia Mia Photography, who one more time brought us their amazing work pondering all the feelings that were part of this gala. Our beautiful maharani Mili looked astonishing thanks to Gerardo Avila, who fulfilled Mili's beauty desire creating the hairstyle she always dreamed of for this event. The hall was decorated with vibrant colors and well-mixed ornaments that gave a traditional, but at the same time, luxury vibe to the pre-wedding celebration. All of these wouldn't have been possible without the excellent work of Alquimia Events, who translated Mili and Bunty's vision in an extremely well-decorated dreamed hall! If you want to relive more of this love story, make sure to take a look at the gallery that we prepare specially for you!
