Dallas, TX Indian Wedding by Vek Photo

Welcome back, beautiful ladies! We are glad you could join us today because we were dying to share all the details surrounding Ashley & Nikhil's wedding bash! This time, we will be heading to the wedding ceremony in a vibrant and joyful Baraat procession animated by DJ Riz Entertainment.  And we love how Nikhil embraced a traditional style and show up at the Baraat procession riding a white horse decorated with traditional Indian fabrics. This colorful procession created a striking scene that combined modern architecture with classic Indian colors and attires. And we cannot stretch how much we love this moment! After the arrival of the Baraat, our two lovebirds were ready to go inside the exclusive Renaissance Dallas Hotel to proceed with the wedding ceremony that united their lives in marriage. This long-awaited moment, thoroughly planned by Elaan Events, was a dream come true! Simply take a look at the lovely decoration crafted by Alpha Décor. It was mesmerizing! The soft colored adornments and multicolored floral arrangements mirrored the jaw-dropping look of our gorgeous Maharani, who donned a fashionable attire by Om Prakash Jawahar Lal, very well complemented with the exquisite makeup and hairstyle by Red Lotus Artistry. And let's not forget about the spectacular Mehndi designed by Sheetal's Henna Designs. It was all a perfect combination that made her look like a goddess! After the ceremony, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds with a fantastic reception party enlivened by DJ Riz Entertainment. Hands down, the best way to bring the wedding festivities to an end! If you want to take a closer look at this cornucopia of beauty and flair, don't miss the spectacular shots captured by Vek Photo in today's full gallery. It is mind-blowing!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
February 24, 2018. That’s when it went down at the Chihuly Glass Museum in Seattle, WA. My husband was finishing his last semester of law school, and I had an inkling that he would propose in May 2018 after graduating, since all of our families would be together for his graduation. This is why when we took a trip to one of his favorite cities, just a few months prior, a proposal was the farthest thing from my mind. He forced me to dress a little fancy prior to heading to the museum (I thought this was weird and should have expected something) and had made sure my friends had me get a manicure prior to the trip. We walked around the museum with a few of his college friends, one of whom had a fancy camera that he was using to “practice taking good pictures”. Once we entered the open gallery room, he got on one knee and proposed! I was so shocked that I just stood there staring down at him saying, “is this for real” repeatedly, until I finally said yes. Later, I learnt that he had picked the Museum for a number of reasons: 1) he knew I had never been and wanted to go, 2) proposing in Seattle would be totally unexpected, and 3) given that the Museum had glass gardens and flowers, it was beautiful year round, and there was no possibility of weather interfering with his plans.
 
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.
Our decision-making process for the venues and vendors was 90% driven by our budget. We knew we wanted to do a wedding in Dallas and that a hotel was going be the best option since an overwhelming majority of the guests would be flying into Dallas from out of state. We researched options, toured, made pro-con lists, and the Renaissance Dallas was finally selected, particularly because not only did it fall within our budget, but it gave us the ability to have our ceremony outdoors, which had been my dream!
 
For decor, since the wedding was going to be three separate events and we would have three completely different outfits, we wanted each event to feel different and intentional. We started planning our decor themes with the ceremony and knew that we wanted an outdoor morning ceremony, and so soft light tones and pastels (i.e. light pink, ivory, pale gold, mint green, etc) were going to be perfect. We wanted the Sangeet the night before to feel fun and cultural as a good way to kick off the weekend, so we wanted lots of bright colors and decor that screamed festive. Finally, the reception as the closing piece needed to feel grand and bold. Once we had these ideas nailed down, our decorator was able to take them and run and bring us back a vision that absolutely floored us.
 
I don’t think I could’ve gotten the Bridal looks I had envisioned if I had not gone with Red Lotus Artistry. From day one, when we began with the makeup trial, Vidya listened very closely to what kind of styles and looks I was a fan of, and what I simply couldn’t stand. For example, I wanted to refrain from heavy eyeliner on the lower lid for the ceremony, given that we were going with the softer tones theme, and given that I hate lipstick, I only agreed to move forward with lighted lip shades for most of the wedding events. You want a makeup/hair artist who believes in what you do and don’t like, and doesn’t only try to impose his or her views. Your bridal makeup artist also needs to know exactly what hiccups to expect when getting ready for your wedding events, and that’s exactly what Vidya addressed during our consultation meeting. During the consultation, Vidya and I discussed how my dupattas would be draped and we ran through how every single piece of jewelry would be worn for each event. The meeting was time consuming, yet so informative and it kept us on the same page the weekend of the wedding.
 
We initially were worried about identifying and communicating with the vendors in Dallas, because we both lived in Washington, DC. Luckily, we had the absolute best wedding planner, Christina Thomas at Elaan Events, to help navigate us through the process. She was able to give us multiple options within our budget for each vendor, and made sure we were 100% happy with each one before proceeding onto the next matter. It has now been three months since the wedding took place, and we can look back with certainty that each was the best choice.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Pink. My bridal lehanga was destined to be a shade of pink since god knows when. Walking into Om Parkash Jawahar Lal in Chandni Chowk in New Delhi, and seeing all of the endless options of dazzling lehengas, something clicked and I knew that even though this was the first shop we were visiting, it would be the last and my lehenga would have to come from here. Luckily, my parents and aunts had already done their homework by visiting this shop prior to me even landing in New Delhi, so that made me feel even more comfortable with sticking to Om Parkash Jawahar Lal...which I highly recommend, brides!
 
Given that pink was non-negotiable, and that we wanted the ceremony to be pastel themed, accenting my lehenga with sea green was the perfect choice, especially since my husband loves the color green and was happy to find a sea green sherwani with light pink accents to compliment my outfit.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Hands down the food and cake tastings were the most enjoyable parts of the planning process. Is it possible that amidst the minutiae of wedding planning and logistics, anything could have been more enjoyable than being fed a variety of scrumptious appetizers, main dishes, desserts, and then making decisions with our stomachs instead of our minds? Although I’ve got to say, pinning wedding outfits and henna designs to my Pinterest boards, which I’d share with my mother and mother-in-law to get their input, was also exciting and not stressful, so I’d consider this a close second.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The Ceremony! One would think that a late morning ceremony, on the terrace of the Renaissance Hotel in Dallas, with perfect weather that wasn’t too hot or cold, with absolutely stunning soft pastel decor would have been what made the ceremony so memorable. But, all of that ended up being sides to the entree, that was the priest, Panditji Pattabhirama Krishna Jois. The guests were blown away by the fact that our traditional Hindu priest not only spoke in excellent English and was able to easily explain every step, but also that he was funny and engaging to a point where he felt as though he was an emcee. Many of our guests had not been to a traditional desi wedding before, and instead of sitting there bored and confused for an hour, they were entertained and were able to feel like they were part of all of the rituals.
 
Long story short, the engaging ceremony coupled with the perfect environment/vibe is something our guests have not stopped talking about.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I feel like every bride, who has her wedding fresh in her mind, has all kinds of knowledge they want to impart on all brides-to-be. Here are my two cents:
 
1) Enjoy the engagement period for at least the first 1-2 months before you dive into planning mode. You really want to take that time to just be on cloud nine before you become occupied with dates, locations, and the endless wedding related decisions to be made.
 
2) The wedding planning process is like running a marathon. Don’t sprint!! Sticking to deadlines is essential, which your planner will guide you on. But don’t try to do everything at once. During this process, remember to keep an open dialogue with your fiance! Your partner needs to be a part of the conversations. Remember, it’s not just your marathon!

Chicago, IL Indian Wedding by Rahul Rana Photography

Happy Tuesday, darlings! We hope you are ready to dive into a new love story because we are dying to share Roshani & Parshva's wedding celebration with all of you! This time, we are heading down to the striking Pearl Banquets to enjoy this solemn and enchanting event that united these two lovebirds in marriage. Right from the bat, we have to say that this wedding was a cornucopia of beauty and glamour. Still, it was our gorgeous Maharani who stole all the looks throughout the entire wedding festivities as she donned soft colored attires by Aynaa that praised her innate beauty and made her look like a goddess! Her elegance and fashionable look also reflected on the fabulous makeup and hairstyle designed by Antonette White. And we cannot stress how much we loved it! To mirror the beauty of our gorgeous Maharani, Elegance Decor crafted a marvelous and almost heavenly decor that made everyone sigh. It was superb! An elegant and luxurious reception party followed the ceremony, and all guests had a great time dancing to the beats of DJ iLLEST. The only time the dancing stopped was to enjoy the delicious plates prepared by India House and the mouth-melting cake baked by The Baking Institute. If you can't get enough of this lovely celebration, make sure to take a look at the fantastic shots captured by Rahul Rana Photography in today's full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband and I met when we were in high school, but we didn't start dating until after college. We talked every so often but since we went to different universities we didn't see each other much until we moved back home. I think I knew he was "the one" after our first "official" date. We had already become very close as friends so taking our relationship to the next level was a very natural transition.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I knew my husband was going to propose some time in 2018, I just wasn't sure when. That is, until he walked into my house at 7:30am on a Saturday wearing a dress shirt and blazer. That kinda gave it away. He took me to Navy Pier and proposed in the ferris wheel when we got to the top. Even though I knew it was coming, I still couldn't stop myself from crying my eyes out. Our proposal was private, but we met up with our family and friends afterwards to celebrate. It was one of the happiest days of my life.

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 had a lot of help from our family. We both have sisters and cousins who were so helpful when it came to finding the perfect venue, vendors, and decor theme. We were also determined to stick to our budget as much as we could. My husband was extremely helpful with this as he is very organized when it comes to planning and finances. Things can get crazy and add up with all of the events, vendors, gifts, etc. but he had this awesome spreadsheet that he used to keep track of it all.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew from the beginning that I didn't want to wear red. I saw an outfit online that was made by an Indian designer and I fell in love. I was able to find another designer through Instagram who could re-create any Indian outfit and decided to give them a chance. They were my first stop when I went to Mumbai. I actually didn't look at any other bridal outfits while I was in India, I knew what I wanted and I had to have it. I'm so happy with the decision I made and how my outfit turned out.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The food tastings! We loved sampling all of the different items and creating a menu of our favorites.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The entertainment. We are so lucky to have family and friends who went above and beyond with emceeing, performances, and speeches.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There so many that come to mind, but the one that sticks out most is our first dance together as husband and wife. Everything about that moment was perfect.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the planning process and delegate! You spend about a year planning your wedding and even though it can feel stressful at times it will be over before you know it. It's important to take things one day at a time and ask your family and friends for help when you need it. This will make the whole process go smoother and your loved ones will also be happy that they were able to be a part of your big day.

That is all for today, darlings! Se you tomorrow for more. Same place, same time!

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis! If you wanted to start your day filled with positive emotions, inspiring ideas, and luxurious shots, you've come to the right place! Radha & Kishan's big wedding bash packs all of the above, and so much more. If the name of these lovebirds sounds familiar, that is because their awesome wedding already featured in our Video Blog thanks to the cinematographic delight by Regal Palette Studio. But there was so much more to admire that we decided to re-visiting it through the jaw-dropping shots also captured by Regal Palette Studio. We are starting this journey by taking a look at the process of our gorgeous Maharani getting ready for her big day. Radha trusted her beauty needs to Cinderella Bridez and Luxey Looks Beauty, who have tons of experience, making Maharanis' dreams come true. This winning combination resulted in a glamorous makeup and a sleek hairstyle that made her look like a goddess. And in case you were wondering who is the mastermind behind the spectacular Mehndi that this Maharani showcased, it was no other than the talented team of artists at Mehndikalogie! After being fully dolled up, Radha stole all the looks during the wedding ceremony hosted at The Marigold. For this solemn and long-awaited wedding ceremony, Nirali Decor showed their magic crafting an all-white decor with soft colored floral arrangements that everyone loved! And we want to give Pearl Events & Co. a big shoutout for the detailed planning and execution of this entire wedding bash, as everything was amazing! To end these festivities with a bang, Radha & Kishan throw a reception party animated by Powerhouse DJs, and all we have to say is that this was the best way to bring the wedding to an end.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Kishan and I met multiple times throughout our childhood, without ever knowing it. We then officially met at a wedding in Cleveland where he asked me to be his dandiya partner when I was only 9 years old. We unfortunately went out seperate ways until we met again years later on Facebook, where we reconnected. I lived in Ohio and he lived in Maryland at the time. We met halfway in West Virginia when I was 19 and the rest was history. After 7 years of long distance I moved the Maryland and we finally got married!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was the week of my 26th birthday, I was supposed to leave to go see him on Saturday. But I spent the Friday with my little sister, priya, who every year blindfolds me and surprises me with a fun filled day. I didn’t think anything of it. She asked me to get dressed because she was going to take me to a new restaurant that was super fancy. So I got dressed, she blindfolded me and we left. However when we got to the “restaurant” she took off the blindfold and there he was, the man of my dreams on one knee with a purple runner and lights on an airport runway with a helicopter behind him. After all these years he still managed to surprise me. I was in shock and literally couldn’t move. But I eventually said YES!
 
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.
As every girl does, I have always dreamt of what my wedding day would look like. I knew what was most important to Kishan and I was convenience for our guests. Because most of our family and friends live in New Jersey we decided to have our wedding there. Next was finding a venue that provided shuttle service to a nearby hotel so people wouldn't have to worry about driving. Once we found the venue, came the guest list. The hardest part of any indian wedding is the guest list. We managed to make it work and the rest was easy. We both had sisters that married a few years ago, so we used the same vendors as they did. We loved our vendors. We felt like we had known them our entire life. They made the process fun and stress free. We are blessed that we got to take a trip to India to do our wedding shopping. My wedding outfit came from Asov Palav. I originally did not want a red lehnga. I wanted a non traditional outfit. But as soon as I tried the red lehnga on, I fell in love. I knew it was the one. As for the decor, Nirali decor was extremely patient with me because I was so indecisive. She made my dream into a reality. Purple is not only my favorite color, but my late grandfather's favorite color as well. Which is why I incorporated different shades of Purple throughout the wedding Decor. My overall experience was pleasant. There will always be a few bumps in the road, but just remember all that matters is that you get to marry your best friend and the man you love. There will be things that are beyond our control, but it will all work out. My best advice, don't stress the things you can't control.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted to get my wedding outfit from Asav Palav before I went to India. I wanted a non-traditional wedding dress. However, as soon as I tried on the first dress that happened to be red, I fell absolutely in love.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Food tasting! My husband and I are Foodies. We loved trying different items and working with our vendors to find the perfect items for our guests. The professionalism of all of our vendors made the process less stressful and for us more enjoyable!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved how involved Kishan and I were with meeting everyone. They were shocked by how relaxed we were and how much fun we were having. Everyone knew that what was most important to us was the union of both families and having a great time! We are so happy our guests had such a good time!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment that I will always remember is my husband and his groomsmen surprising me with a dance that I don't think anyone will forget. It was so thoughtful and he captured the attention of all the guests with his amazing speech.
 
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.
Our Garba night was all Radha Kishan themed. Nirali decor helped us create a night that was filled with colors and greenery throughout the venue. The life size tree with hanging candle and lanterns was eye capturing. Kishan and I love to dance, so we wanted to surprise our guests with Radha Kishan themed songs for our performance.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start with a budget. Don't stress yourself out about the things you can't control. Be sure to not let the stress get the best of you. You are going to have an amazing day no matter what happens. The energy of the Bride and Groom will drive the energy of your guests! So when your wedding week begins, let go of all the stress and get LIT!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndi Kalogie was very punctual and professional. My artist did an amazing job for my family, friends, and my Bridal Henna. She was so sweet and I'm very happy I went with her as my choice as a vendor. Bhargavi from Cinderella Brides is not only an artist but a necessity on your wedding day, she made me feel and look like a queen. Luxey looks by Ami and Linda worked wonders on my friends and family. They were very easy and flexible to work with. Without Pearl events, this day would not have gone as smooth as it did. Thank you for executing every detail to perfection. Thank you to our caterer, Bhukhara Grill. Vicky did an amazing job with all of the food, our guests are still talking about it. DJ Vik and his team from Powerhouse DJ's helped us create our mixes for our dances and made sure all the guests were on their feet the entire night. Nirali decor slayed the decorations for all events. They were so kind and patient with us in selecting our decor. The Marigold was the perfect venue for us! Dave from the Marigold answered our calls and emails immediately and always answered all of our questions whenever we had any. Last, but not the least Regal Palette. They took the time to get to know us on a personal level, and listened to everything we wanted. From the engagement shoot to the wedding video, they captured every moment, every reaction, every laugh, and every cry. I am so happy we chose the vendors we did! Thank you to all the vendors for making our wedding weekend one we will never forget!

That is all for today, darlings! See you tomorrow for a new and inspiring love story.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ravi in college over summer session in 2008.  We were introduced by a mutual friend who suggested we should walk together to class since we were both heading in the same direction on campus at the same time every day. We actually didn’t get along at all at first, but that eventually changed.  We ended up making "deals" with each other.  I’d have a shopping companion at the mall and in turn, he’d have a partner to go to the theaters to watch ‘The Dark Knight’ again and again (3 times to be exact).  During one of our shopping trips, he saw me fall in love with a pair of peacock earrings which I didn’t end up buying. On this same day, I mistakenly purchased two left feet red heels from a last sale store.  He noticed all of this and bought me those earrings and red heels (a right and left) for my birthday.  I was absolutely floored that he paid such close attention to these details.  Fast forward to 2014 he proposed to me and after a 5-year engagement we FINALLY got married on October 2019.  We learned to speed up our timeline and are due with a baby boy in November 2020.  I met Ravi when I wasn’t even looking, but now I can’t stop looking at and admiring the beautiful life we made together.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think what people loved the most was the venue.  We had searched for months both online and in person with multiple flights back and forth from Philly to Charleston.  At one point, we started feeling defeated because we felt as though we were running out of options. On a day that we were set to return back to Philadelphia, we decided to check out Wild Dunes on a whim just a few hours before our flight and fell in love with it.  We knew if we were asking our friends and family to come all the way to South Carolina from the Northeast, we wanted it to be a vacation for them.  Our guests spent a few days extra exploring downtown Charleston, playing golf at the resort, and enjoying the beach.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I lost my grandmother to cancer in 2017.  While she was sick, she would always say that she’d make it long enough to be at our wedding.  Unfortunately, the cancer took her after a 2-year battle and she wasn’t able to see our wedding.  It hurt not having her there for our most special day.  She and my grandfather played such an integral part in my life that I felt it was important to have them play a big part in my wedding.  My grandfather walked me down the aisle and my grandmother's picture had the best seat in the house.
 
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.
We both wanted a destination wedding, but due to some concerns of close family members not being able to attend, we decided on a resort near my hometown.  We still wanted to incorporate a "tropical" vibe, so our mandap was made of tropical flowers and leaves and our aisle was lined with pineapples.  Our cocktail hour was located in a “boardwalk” setting just off the beach, with a beautiful sunset view of the ocean. Cocktail hour also featured a local steel drum band to entertain our guests.

If we inspired you today, you can't miss what we have prepared for you tomorrow. So stick around!
