Coral Springs, FL Fusion Wedding by Sugarfree Studio

Happy Thursday, ladies! If you are like us and you never get enough of these beautiful celebrations of love, today's fusion wedding will take your breath away! Kristina & Shayam's wedding overflows with so much beauty, and we are really excited because this time, there is not one but two wedding ceremonies that marked the start of a lifetime love story for this sweet young couple. Lucky guys! The Hindu wedding ceremony and the reception took place at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel & Convention Center, while the Nikkah ceremony took place at Nur Ul Islam. And we cannot think of better places to have hosted these wedding festivities as everything turned out to be amazing. It was all a cornucopia of beauty and traditional flair thanks to Salsan Events, who put together a magical and almost unreal setting, more than suitable for the different ceremonies and activities. The colorful decor and the gorgeous floral arrangements created the perfect backdrop for Kristina & Shayam to tie the knot. There was so much beauty all over the place, but nothing compared to Kristina's stunning look. She had the best allies by her side! Glam by Mevi took care of her beauty needs while Pronovias and Badgley Mischka took her of her fashion needs. The final result: Absolute beauty! And we are so glad to have the opportunity to enjoy the beginning of this everlasting love story, thanks to the spectacular shots captured by Sugarfree Studio, as every single image is mesmerizing and enchanting! If you can't get enough of this lovely couple, take a look at the gallery we have prepared for you today. It will make your heart melt with tenderness and joy!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Shayam and I actually met when we were 15 years old and over the years he became best friends with my brothers. Little did I know back then that I would end up marrying my brother's best friend, but fast forward a few years to adults and our friendship turned to romance. I knew he was the one because once we started dating he kept saying I am going to marry you!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We actually had just purchased our first home together and after weeks of renovations, he surprised me with a getaway trip to the Keys. We stayed on a beautiful private island at the Sunset Key Cottages resort.  I must say, I wasn't one for the fairytales and big surprises, but this man blew me away. He proposed on the beach just before sunset. Funny thing is I saw a woman hiding in the bushes before he proposed and come to find out it was a photographer waiting to take pictures of us.   

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.
Shortly after our engagement we got married legally and being that we just purchased a home, we decided to take a year and half to plan our official wedding ceremonies and reception. The religious aspects of our marriage was just as important to us as legally being married especially getting to share the moment with our loved ones. We had 3 venues and thankfully all went well. Our Hindu ceremony was held at the Coral Springs Center of the Arts in their courtyard. Our Nikah ceremony was held at Nur Ul Islam in Cooper City and our reception was held at The Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs.  A great photo and videographer was needed and Sugarfree Studio took good care of us capturing these wonderful moments! I did freelance makeup on the side, so it was only natural for me to do my own bridal makeup each day! A lot of work for a bride, but I was happy to do it.  My overall experience with the vendors went well and I am glad I had an amazing wedding coordinator Chire Harvey to help make it happen on the wedding weekend.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Our wedding was in the fall and I wanted to incorporate those jewel toned colors that we felt brought a classic touch with deep hues for my bridal outfits. I went with reds and gold for our Hindu ceremony and emerald green for our Nikah.  For my reception look I always wanted to wear a white Pronovias wedding dress for their beautiful delicate lace detail.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I would say the most enjoyable part of planning was preparing for our first dance. We took ballroom dancing classes at Fred Astaire in Delray Beach with the wonderful Vanessa Iurman.  This was something I always wanted to do, and we got to experience it in preparation for our first dance on our reception night.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the dancing and entertainment!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There was a moment when my husband and I said with relief, we did it!

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.
Indian Dance Instructor: Jayadevi Arts helped us coordinate a dance routine after our hindu ceremony to surprise our guests.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Take everything one day at a time.  Wedding planning and preparing for the big day can be overwhelming, but it is so important to remember to enjoy it while in the moment because all you have left are those memories.

Friday is right around the corner, and with it, we have a new love story for you! So make sure to join us tomorrow if you don't want to miss it.

Somerset, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Priyanca Rao Photography

Welcome to another inspiring love story, Maharanis! Priyanca Rao Photography amazed us one more time with an extraordinary wedding album you will love. This time the visual storytellers narrate the union of Shruthi and Joffie, a New Jersey couple that hosted a magical Christian-Indian soiree that was nothing short but a dream. Even when they had to make some tweaks to their original plans, one thing is for certain, Eventify's experts organized everything and assured the couple still had a fabulous event. First, they exchanged vows in a beautiful and unique Christian ceremony. The large wedding party that joined the newlyweds for the occassion really dressed to impress. The lovely ladies donned WestxEast's royal blue lehengas, while neat blue suits from Robbie & Co provided the perfect style for the gentlemen. They coordinate perfectly! Now let's draw your attention to Maharani Shruti. She was unquestionably the queen of the day, wearing an Enaura Bridal white long sleeves lace gown and finished the look with a spectacular veil. Our bride went for a natural yet glowy makeup, nailing the perfect wedding look thanks to the beauty expert Arfana Jasar. Joffie joined the love of his life on their big day wearing an impeccable black tux provided by Robbie & Co. They both looked wonderfully elegant together. They picked the iconic Marigold, an enchanting spot that offered an extraordinary room to build great memories for their final event. Loza Events made the most of this grandiose space and decorated it with a geometric arch that will leave you in awe! From Chand Palace's food, flowers, the music of MVP DJs, and the multiple dances, it was a memorable and upscale affair! Don't miss any detail, and take a look at this dreamy union's images in our complete gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met JJ when I was visiting one of my friends in Philadelphia. I knew he was the one very early on in our relationship. I remember falling in love with how genuine, kindhearted, and God fearing he was. I think the moment I knew I would marry him was when I was having a bad day and lashed out at him and he responded to me by asking if he could pray with me. I still remember all the anger/sadness melted away in that moment, and was replaced with peace. I knew that God brought this man into my life in that moment and that he had a plan for us. JJ does that to this day, he grounds me, is the person I lean on, and can count on the most. I truly feel blessed to have married my best friend!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a hard person to surprise, however leave it to JJ to pull off the best surprise. I was attending my friends wedding in South Jersey and was staying at the hotel there after the wedding Saturday night. The next morning some of us had breakfast at the hotel and my siblings/one of my friends tricked me into going to this friend's hotel room to get something. Little did I know that I was headed to the start of my proposal. I walked to the door and saw an envelope with my name written on it taped to the door and responded hey look its my name. I just thought it was a coincidence and it took me a minute or two to register what was going on. I turned and saw my sister with her phone out and finally realized what was going on. She told me to open the door. I was completely surprised and still in shock but begin to open the door. Once I opened the door, I saw a room filled with rose gold balloons with pictures and messages attached to the bottom, and one of my best friends hiding in the room. There was a card with an envelope waiting for me on the bed. In it was a sweet note from JJ telling me to get ready and meet him where it all began. My sister had sneakily packed a dress, heels, and my jewelry for me. I got ready and was driven to the Philadelphia Art Museum which is where JJ had asked me to be his girlfriend five years ago. I was brought to the back where the gazebo was and saw him waiting for me. He met me and walked me towards the beautifully decorated gazebo where he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes! Afterwards, we met our closest family and friends at a restaurant to celebrate.

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.
Planning the wedding was difficult due to Covid-19. We had a majority of our wedding planned out prior to Covid hitting however a lot of things came to a stand still. The most difficult thing about planning or having a wedding during Covid was the uncertainty. I remember we couldn't send out invitations until 1-2 months prior to our wedding because there was changing guidelines on the amount of guests we were allowed. We had to send evites rather than physical invites due to the time constraint. We had to adjust our guest list to half the number, and a lot of our family from other states were not able to attend. We hired a live stream vendor (sumodjacobphotography) in order to share our special day with those who could not attend. Sumod did an amazing job! We were truly so lucky to have amazing vendors that worked with us during Covid. Arfana Jasar, my hair and makeup artist, made me feel so comfortable while doing my make up. She wore a mask, gloves and got tested prior to my wedding. She executed my natural hair and makeup look that I wanted so beautifully! My florist and decorator, Sarah (Loza events) adjusted all my decor from outdoors to indoor the week before my wedding (Governor Murphy of NJ had just announced that we could have indoor events with limited capacity starting the weekend of my wedding) and she captured my vision perfectly. I still remember being in awe of all the decor walking out after being announced as husband and wife for the first time at our reception. WestxEast, the company that created my custom bridesmaids outfits ensured that my bridesmaids outfits were made during lockdown and reached me from India prior to my wedding. I absolutely loved how my bridesmaids outfits turned out, they were so classy and stunning! Our event coordinators from Eventify (Aji and Neethu) sat on many long calls with us hammering out details and last minute changes and were on top of making sure everything/everyone complied with Covid protocols and that things ran smoothly. Our photographer (Priyanca Rao), videographer (Urmil Dalal) and DJ/MC (MVP DJS) made us feel so comfortable our whole wedding day and made it feel like a normal event during a time when things didnt. They helped us to forget about Covid for a day and helped add to our special day so much. Although the planning process due to Covid was pretty stressful, JJ and I were able to have the best wedding due to our family and our amazing vendors.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All our guests came up to us to thank us for helping them safe at our wedding. We complied with all the Covid protocols with tables being 6ft or more apart, having guests wear masks, and having hand sanitizer at each table. Our wedding was one of the first events that many of our guests came out of lockdown for and many people were nervous at being at a large event. However after attending the wedding, all our guests made it a point to come tell us that they felt safe and thanked us for ensuring that. We were extremely thankful that nobody contracted Covid at our wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in my wedding that constantly replays in my mind is the first look we did prior to our wedding. We met at our venue at the gazebo in the back prior to our wedding ceremony. I still remember feeling so overwhelmed with emotion walking towards him waiting for me in the gazebo and the small on his face when he turned around and saw me. He started to tear up and hugged me so tight. We then proceeded to pray together and thank God for bringing us together This moment was just for us and it was so special. Our photographer Priyanca Rao did an amazing job capturing this moment.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
After planning my wedding, the biggest piece of advice I would give to other brides is to choose vendors who you connect really well with and who are genuine. I have to say my vendors went above and beyond during a very difficult time and that ensured that we were able to enjoy our special day.

Don't forget to read our last feature of the week tomorrow!

Pleasanton, CA Indian Wedding by Anza Foto

Good morning Maharanis! Creating an intimate covid-friendly wedding doesn't mean your soiree will be any less ravishing! Pooja & Mihir postponed their big wedding plans for health and safety reasons but decided to withstand the circumstances and create the most wonderful backyard wedding. This cute pair gave us a lesson of all the perks a "micro wedding" can have: personal touches, a relaxed vibe to enjoy every special moment with no rush, and best of all, it's super romantic! After all, love is all that matters. Anza Foto + Film joined today's couple during their magical day. The team captured the highlights and tender moments that started with a super unique first look photoshoot at the high school where they met. I adore the classroom portraits. Super sweet! Pooja's home, just right around the corner from the school, was picked as the perfect space to tie the knot. At this meaningful venue, Aesthetika Events helped bring their vision to life, creating a mandap decked with abundant foliage and blush pink flowers. While a carnation flower curtain served as a backdrop for the traditional marriage rituals. The event was live-streamed through Zoom so the rest of their family and friends could witness the I Do's and, of course, interact with the couple to make them feel even more special. Thank you, technology! Beauty pros M-Sutra Bride dolled up Maharani Pooja in the comfort o and assured she looked flawless in her feminine pink lehenga. The entire look is love at first sight. Mihir also donned the same shade and accented his outfit with a gold and pink turban that made him embraced his inner Raja. Denise Lillie Engagements planned the unforgettable celebration by taking care of all details and providing them with an intimate affair they didn't know they needed. I'm sure they made Pooja and Mihir really happy. Congrats to the newlyweds also, thanks to Anza Foto + Film for spreading the joy by sharing this beautiful wedding day. Check our full gallery for more!
