Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Novia Mia Photography

Good morning, Ladies! It is time to bring you gals an extraordinary pre-wedding celebration, thanks to the fantastic captures from Novia Mia Photography, who perfectly snapped all the details and every special moment of this lovely festivity. Our lovebirds choose to celebrate their eternal union in one of the most exceptional venues in Cancun, Mexico. To kick start the events, our beautiful Maharani Bhrugini arrived at her Haldi ceremony looking marvelous thanks to the talent of the Styling Trio team, who gave her an elegant look. Preeti Vasudeva took care of every detail of the ceremony, and let me tell you that everything ran smoothly, they couldn't ask for more. Not to mention the dazzling decoration provided by Alquimia Events, who made sure to create a vibrant traditional environment in the heart of this fantastic Mexican venue. Each member of this beautiful family had a great time at the ceremony making sure to create protection for Bhrugini and Vishal, our lovebirds. Last but least, we need to remark the great Mehndi art that Sonia Sumaira created for our bride. Hats off for this excellent artist! You will be deeply inspired by this wedding, so take a closer look at the gallery that we prepared for you! It is an absolute visual delight you don't want to miss!

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! :)

Reston, VA Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

Good morning, ladies! It is time to dive into a new love story! So buckle up and get ready to enjoy this rollercoaster of emotions and traditional flair brought to you thanks to the talented team from Photographick Studios! For this first installment, we'll be taking a look at a romantic photoshoot leading to Rinkey & Atur's wedding celebration! Both our lovebirds looked flawless for their big day; however, it was our gorgeous Rinkey who stole the show! She looked like a princess after being pampered by SKS Salon, who gave her that dreamy look all Maharanis aspire for their big day! To add an extra touch of flair to an already breathtaking look, Rinkey got a fantastic Mehndi design from Mehndi With Heena. And oh, boy, it was gorgeous! After the photoshoot, it was time to go inside the halls of the Hyatt Regency Reston, where a big wedding celebration was awaiting for the leading characters! This life-changing event exceeded all expectations thanks to Yaadein Weddings who crafted a magical decor that resulted in a perfect backdrop for these two to tie the knot.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met online on Shaadi.com. I had sent Atur a message through the app saying that I liked his profile and thought we had a lot in common about what we were looking for in a relationship. I sent him my email address for further communication. Atur messaged me back the next day with his phone number and told me to text him instead, and we texted for about a month before finally having a chance to talk to each other on the phone for the first time. That first phone call lasted 2 hours and was very comfortable, fun, and honest, which is what made the match so promising in my eyes. We would talk and text daily after that until finally FaceTiming the end of December, which went well too. We decided to finally meet in person and coordinated a date I could fly to DC: January 12, 2018. Things took off from there!
 
There were two significant moments I knew Atur was the right guy for me. One was a typical Bollywood movie scene where at my old apartment in Woodbridge, VA, I was sitting down to do my morning prayer and Atur sat down with me and said he wanted to become more spiritual with me. He continues to make a better person by doing the right thing and doing good for others. The second moment was when he came to visit me in April 2017 to help me move out of my apartment and he met my parents for the first time. The connection I felt with him and my family, I knew that this was the guy for me. I felt the same connection with his family in May 2017 when I met them for the first time and it confirmed that I wanted to be part of their family in the future.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Atur's Words:
I was planning on spending Thanksgiving weekend with Rinkey’s family and told her I would fly on Wednesday. But as only her family and mine knew, I secretly arrived Sunday to set-up everything for the proposal. I stayed in a hotel 20 min from her place until Wednesday, while building a functioning mini-replica of the Trevi fountain, setting up partition boards to create a fake wall in her apartment, and arranging all the photos/candles/rose petals/props that I would use to decorate her apartment. After she left for work on Wednesday, I decorated her apartment like an Italian café, put up a fake wall that looked like an Italian storefront, and set out candles and rose petals to set a romantic mood. I hired a photographer to photo/video the entire proposal. Rinkey created a little stress by getting out of work early, which led to some white lies I had to tell her to buy some time, but it worked out in the end! When she arrived, I had her close her eyes, make a wish, and toss a coin in the “Trevi fountain”. When she opened her eyes, I was on one knee with the ring and proposed. She said yes! We then had a mini-photo shoot with the photographer, and then went out to dinner – where she was surprised by our parents and her brother, who we had dinner with and then spent the weekend with to celebrate!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We went to India to shop for wedding outfits for me as well as my family. We only had 8 days to do all the shopping and I had no luck finding my wedding dress for the first three days. We went to all the big-name stores as well as designer stores in Ahmedabad and I could not find a dress that fit the image I wanted which was frustrating. I had brought designer ideas to each of the stores and none were able to match what I was visioning. It was on the fourth day after going to countless stores and spending 8 to 10 hours a day shopping and searching where I randomly told my mom that we should go inside of Asopalav on Ashram Road. We had already visited the other Asopalav in India, where I had no luck but I had a gut instinct to visit the one on Ashram Road even though it was not on the list of stores I wanted to check out. We ended up meeting the team that handles Bridal Dresses at which point we met Akash Bhai. Akash Bhai and his crew knew exactly what my vision was and gathered dresses that were not on their initial display. After trying on 3 to 4 dresses, he brought out the final piece which he knew was the dress I would pick and in fact, I did pick that dress. It matched exactly to the pictures I had brought as well as what I visioned. I could not thank Asopalav on Ashram Road enough for helping me through the process.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the most enjoyable part of the planning process was food tasting, cake tasting, and decor meetings. These meetings did not require work and it was a portion of wedding planning where we could relax and take a breather.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Organized and Punctual
Creativity- Wedding program custom made by us with the title "Shaadi Times". Atur hand created all the sections and made it unique to our story and us. Travel theme guestbook table and postcards for wishes/advice
Magician at Reception Cocktail Hour
Father-daughter dance/mother-son dance and incorporating both sets of parents
Variety of food choices
Lassi at wedding
Bangle Bar at Garba
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Being on the Mandap with Atur and taking a moment to reflect on all the work we put towards the wedding and to see how it all came together. Looking out to see all the support and blessings of our family and friends. The first dance that we choreographed. Atur's surprise video presentation at the reception
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Make sure you enjoy the wedding planning process and to take a deep breath at moments that get stressful. Remember that it is one weekend and at the end of the day it's about you and your significant. It's easy to want everything for your wedding but remember to create a budget and focus on what is important for you and your partner. Think about how you want people to remember your wedding and be realistic.  During the wedding weekend, make sure you take a step back, look around, and reflect on your own about each of the events. Look to see how all the hard work paid off. Look at the decor details as well as who you are surrounded by. Take a few minutes during the weekend to notice all the small details and see how they look in the bigger picture. A lot of people gave me this advice and it truly helped me during my wedding weekend to not worry about the small things that don't go as planned but to look at the big picture of all the hard work that came to reality. Just remember to enjoy the weekend and not worry about any small details. Everything will work out and you only get that one weekend to enjoy the time of your life. Good luck :)!

This fantastic love story has just begun, so get ready for all the beauty that is coming your way!

Cambridge, MD South Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

Hey there, Maharanis! Today it is our absolute pleasure to share with you Varsha & Dhruv's amazingly vivid and colorful vision for the most important day of their lives. The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort was the place that housed both the ceremony and reception and as we can already imagine, it was as grand and elegant as possible. The vibrancy between these two lovebirds left us totally sighing, just as much as their fashion choices. For the main ceremony, our Maharani Varsha rocked the house with a ruby-toned saree with details in marigold. Her youthful style truly stood out to us, I tell you that! So chic! To be able to keep that amount of glam during the rollercoaster of emotions that weddings are, you need a planner that can surely live up to the task. Project Bride DC was our couple's choice and what a choice that was! This gala has the right amount of inspiration and more, so, ladies, time to get pen and paper ready for our featured gallery of today's ideas, thanks to the amazing work of Photographick Studios.

Hello, dear Maharanis! We are so overwhelmed by the number of weddings we get to be featured. It is truly breathtaking to know that there are so many people in the world that still believe in the power of love. That precisely is the case of Pooja & Pravin, our couple of today. This heartwarming pair decided to merge their lives, families, and souls in a traditional but unique South Indian wedding gala. The beautiful garden of the Hilton San Diego Bayfront was looking at its best to house both the ceremony and reception and as we already know, the venue lent itself for the magic to happen. Maharani Pooja was looking lovely, the details of loto flowers on her saree truly stood out to me as very symbolic and gracious. Indeed a new beginning and a new life, but this time, joined by our lucky groom Pravin, who rocked the Raja style to the maximum.
