Oakland, NJ Sikh Wedding by Images by Aaron

Happy Thursday, Maharanis! I can't think of a better way to start this day than with this sweet and lovely couple celebrating their wedding! As you can see, the bride's makeup looked stunning on this special day, thanks to the extraordinary work of Style by Susmita. You can appreciate the exquisite and stylish color selected for her apparel by Anita Dongre that highlighted Jasleen's beauty. Every small detail made this event not just classy but captivating and flawless. The impressive decoration that Tradition and Trends put together was the perfect complement to set the mood for this solemn and unique ceremony at Guru Nanak Mission. Truly, this was an unforgettable event thanks to the help of Events by Srishti. Undoubtedly, this breathtaking ceremony had to be filmed and captured. This moment will always be remembered thanks to the incredible job of The Guerrilla Clan and the fascinating talent of Images by Aaron. This was such an outstanding job that just by looking at the pictures, it makes you feel like you were in the magnificent Old Tappan Manor, where this reception took place. The newlyweds, Jasleen & Akaash, were having the time of their lives while sharing with their family and friends the rhythm of the Platinum Roadshow. This wedding had a long-awaited and memorable moment since these lovebirds were not allowed to see each other before the ceremony, so they did a first touch rather than a first look! Don't miss the fascinating gallery. You will love it!

Citrus Springs, FL Indian Fusion Wedding by Sona Photography

Good morning darlings! Today we have an enchanting celebration starring Bhakti & Vijay. Our sweet couple will take us back to a heartwarming summer day. Staring with a jolly ceremony at the Citrus Springs Community Center, the couple said "yes" to a lifetime of love and happiness. Bhakti & Vijay's was brought to life with Nikun Events' magnificent embellishment. This fantastic team is as talented with the decor as they are with the design of such beautiful events. The lovebirds had Pea to Tree Events' invaluable assistance to ensure the event was successful and enjoyable for all. If there is something I enjoyed the most with this story, it was definitely Bhakti's divine looks! Our Maharani had a gorgeous lengha from Binari Art. Her attire was complemented by Michele Renee The Studio's graceful makeup art. This prolific artist's work is always a marvel to contemplate. Bhakti was no exception! The charming bride was all about elegance and beauty with the delicate mehndi art Tejal Henna did for her. She was stunning! Her heavenly looks shone as bright as her love for Vijay all the time. These two are the sweetest! So, of course, their wedding day cake had to be just as dandy. They entrusted Valhalla Bakery with it and Amrit Palace to delight their guests with delicious cuisine. I am sure the attendants were dazzled by all the aspects of this celebration, but the lively ambiance  Krish Entertainment created must be a favorite! Laughter and fondness were incessantly present while everyone relished in the picture-perfect scene in front of them with the bride and groom lost in each other's eyes. Bhakti & Vijay had a grand wedding, indeed. Thanks to Sona Photography's artistic skills, this day's romance will live on forever, frozen in a charming set of pictures. Maharanis, we have all these lovely pictures in a compelling gallery,  ready to ignite your imagination. Go on and fall in love!

Old Bridge, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Dreamline Productions LLC.

My gorgeous Maharanis, get ready for another romantic adventure courtesy of the lovely Nisha & Hiran. Our couple had a marvelous ceremony at the  Grand Marquis. There was a heartwarming ambiance enveloping everyone as the celebration continued. Mandap Milap complemented this aura with its unique decor. Meanwhile, Chand Palace delighted the attendants with their exquisite culinary art. I am sure the guests enjoyed more than just the delicious food! Our couple entrusted JP Entertainment to keep up the melodic environment with friends and family dancing the night away. This grand celebration had highlight after highlight, but the best of all was undoubtedly the newlyweds and their fashion tastes!

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 during the pandemic was so much more stressful, especially an Indian wedding. With all the events and guests we have its overwhelming, to begin with. We thought to push it another year so we could have time to plan but our families decided to just keep it simple and small hoping some of the vendors would lift their restrictions. We had 8 months to plan the whole wedding so booked our venue and I booked my hair and makeup artist. I couldn’t go to India to do my shopping, so had to work with whatever I had here. I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and really just lucked out with our vendors and their availability. They were extremely helpful in the planning process, especially everything being on short notice.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My bridal lengha was the traditional red and gold. I originally wanted fuchsia pink and red but couldn’t find anything that I liked. I bought my lengha from Edison but being in a pandemic, all the shops and boutiques were not getting any new shipments so then I just went with the traditional red and gold.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Other than going venue shopping and finalizing our venue, I’d say my favorite part of wedding planning had been coming up with the gifts for my bridesmaids and my Maid of Honor and asking them to be a part of my bridal party. I always had an idea how I would ask them and it was just perfect when they all said yes.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our venue, Grand Marquis. The venue was naturally beautiful, and it didn’t require a lot of decorations. The only decor we had was our mandap. Our guests were able to capture a lot of beautiful photos of themselves and us. They also enjoyed the food and music and just being able to see each other after so long because of the pandemic, and we were very happy that our wedding made that possible.

I hope you loved this story, ladies! Keep coming back for more.

Rockleigh, NJ Indian Wedding by Ishan Fotografi

My beloved Maharanis, welcome to another fantastic story starring the sweet Shruti & Poojan. Our couple had a heartwarming celebration at The Rockleigh on a splendid summer day. Shruti & Poojan filled this fabulous venue with love, while House of Dipali loaded it with artistic decor and gorgeous bouquets. Our Maharani was just as radiant as the stunning flowers with a divine attire from Roop Vatika for the reception. The beautiful bride had Dawn Gomez and Divya Bhawnani to assist with her hair and makeup, and, let me tell you, the result deserves a standing ovation! Our Maharani looked graceful and enchanting at all times with the delicate mehndi mehndibyanuja did for her. Of course, the stylish couple had more than looks to render their guests speechless. With Moghul Caterers' acclaimed services and Mr. Paanwala's delicious cuisine, this event was a delight! A Little Cake also brought their magic with an astonishing wedding cake that everyone enjoyed. Accompanied by Luxe Event Group's prolific music set and lively ambiance, no one could resist the dance floor. Rana Ranbir's skills complemented the melodic aura with a lovely dhol ballad, and MiCKEY SiNGH's unmissable presentation was a guest's favorite with his astonishing talent! The lovebirds had the Unique Visions Studio's team in charge of the cinematography, while Ishan Fotografi was entrusted with capturing the event's essence. Our couples' love will be frozen forever in each magnificent frame. There is no doubt in my mind that this enthralling gallery is exactly what you need to get your creativity going, Maharanis. Wait no more to be part of this happily ever after!
