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!

Welcome back, darlings! We are so excited to continue sharing this love story with you. This time around, we will take you to the exclusive Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport to join Yogina & Keyur at their elegant reception party.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We first met in DC after Keyur had moved back to California to start a new job.  He came for the weekend.  After having been on so many dates, he was the only one I felt I could connect with and have great conversation with.  on our first date, he brought me White chocolate (he knew me so well).  We both loved sports so we had out first date at "Penn Commons" in DC where I lived and worked.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As we were long distance, we often met in LA or DC.  He chose our proposal place perfect - planned a meal at Maydan.  It was cold out and we wanted to catch a little bit of the Lakers game - so we decided to walk to a bar and then head to dinner.  On our walk, he purposely chose to walk past our first date dessert place - Dolci Gelati on 8th Street.  I had no idea until he got down on one knee and popped the question.
 
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.
I started with makeup artist as I knew they booked up quickly.  I then started going to different venues.  I really love nature and greenery so decided that was the direction I wanted to go. We also did a lot of wine tasting together so we loved the colors of the Vineards.  It was not hard to plan with the help of family and friends who had been through the process already.  Photography was another big thing for me, and I did a lot of research to find the right group.  Its really important to prioritize what is important to you and start booking because the vendors you like tend to book up quickly.  Keeping to a budget was also a priority so keeping that in mind, I planned to spend the most on makeup and photography.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
It took me a very long to find the perfect bridal lengha.  I shopped around and was not happy until I came across Nazarana's selection.  I've always wanted red and had a specific design in mind.  When I put on the outfit, I knew immediately it was the one!  The team at Nazarana was great and helped me design a blouse that was prefect for me.  When I went back for my fitting, they even tightened it that day because i had to drive over 3 hours to get there. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of planning was picking things I liked - décor, dresses and knowing I was going to marry Keyur. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I feel there were many aspects the wedding my guest loved including the pre wedding functions.  The food was great, the live violinist was excellent and the décor was beyond beautiful thanks to Sachi and team at Partyland.  Everyone loved the décor, I heard someone refer to the décor as "Crazy Rich Asians".  The DJ kept that party going, we have Gulab Jamun cheesecake was delicious as well as the Custom rustic cake from "Charm City Cakes".  It was all around fun for all ages and for family and friends alike.   
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I was on stage and they lowered Keyur's "vail", I still remember looking at him and smiling the biggest smile - I was about to marry my best friend! 
 
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.
The Mehdni was at our home as well as the Puja, we had home made food from my family which was to excellent.  The Garba was at the main venue and it was great to have my family participate in countless dance practices to get our routine together. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Prioritze!  and Remember ENJOY your day.  My husband and I had so much fun the day of our wedding and it really makes a difference.  I never had a moment of stress or sadness during my wedding - its only little things.  You want to be that bride that is happy on her wedding day - besides it only happens once.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndi with Heena was great - she was so accommodating and really did a great job with incorporating our relationship in to my design. 
Cake was so yummy- check out "charm city cakes" if you are in the Maryland area - they have great flavors and so moist!
Makeup/hair - done for my mom and two sisters as well as me through Make-up by Ana.  I loved Nancy and Uzma.  Great job for everyone!

We hope you have a great week! See you tomorrow!
