St. Milpitas, CA Indian Wedding by visionOne Studios

Today we put together a charming feature that allows us to meet a sweet couple that shines with adoration! Eakta and Rahul are the lucky ones who tied the knot in a beautiful big Indian wedding that was captured from start to finish by VisionOne Studios! The adorable images take us through their wedding journey, starting at the Aria Dining & Banquets where a vibrant Sangeet helped to set up the celebratory state for both families to the splendid ceremony at the Indian Community Center! Our lovely Indian beauty, Eakta was a true stunner thanks to the dreamy updo and makeup that the beauty pro TM's Makeup Artistry created on her, while her multi-layered Kaleere added a big touch of gold to her already wonderful look. All the decorative grace and luxe was thanks to the creative crew from Eve Decor who festooned the hall with a sumptuous and elaborate white carved mandap. The flowers also reigned during the ceremony embellishing the scenery with peach, pink blush, and white colors. Our dapper Punjabi groom, Rahul flaunted the greatest currency garland I've ever seen and matched his bride's look with a hot pink scarf and turban! Check out Eakta and Rahul's full gallery for more pictures from their big affair!

Detroit, Michigan Indian Wedding by JSK Photography

What's your Indian wedding fantasy? For Maharani Hiral it was a cultural ceremony intermixed with a regal reception at the elegant The Kensington Hotel. This prestigious Indian wedding feature by the incredibly talented JSK Photography paints a photo of a loving couple with an equally tender support system. Our bride was shining in a coral-hued anarkali with all the right ruffles. Event designer Candice Belaire of The Kensington Hotel ensured the ballroom for the festive reception was bathed in pure luxury. The head-turning accents of gold and bright citron transformed the spacious quarters into a setting any Indian bride would appreciate. All the treasured moments are captured in our full gallery.

Detroit, Michigan Indian Wedding by JSK Photography

I love how Maharani Hiral and Niraj's Indian wedding celebration at the oh so fabulous The Kensington Hotel was jam-packed with some of the biggest names in the Indian wedding vendor community. From stunning mehndi handcrafted by the one and only Mehndi Designer, to vintage cars from Classic Auto Rental; this girl truly got it all!  For her Indian wedding ceremony, Amanie Mokdad Makeup Artist was the beauty guru of choice who enriched this bride with a matte makeup glow with bold lips. Top That! Event utilized the nature-oriented venue and transformed the lush nature with a crisp color palette of golds and champagne pink. The result was a homespun Indian wedding with a warming ambiance. I have a ton of love waiting for you in the gallery by JSK Photography.

Burbank, CA Indian Wedding by Sameer Soorma Studios

Aksha and Raj's whimsical Indian wedding has come to an end! But don't worry Maharanis, the memories have been forever immortalized by Sameer Soorma Studios for us to enjoy at our leisure! For her reception party, Seema slipped into a beautifully crafted, sleek silhouette lengha with intricate patchwork that added a feminine flair designed by Frontier Heritage. The groom ensured he was on point just as much as the bride throughout the events donning designer pieces from ManyavarSurabhi Event Decor filled the venue with towering blooms, ivory linens, and shimmering drapery. The sweetheart stage was lit up in illuminated lighting that added a level of icy pizazz throughout the venue. Music is a powerful memory trigger and DJ Tanveer ensured the crowd created memorable moments on the dance floor. I relive all the memories in our enchanting gallery

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Raj and I were Facebook friends before we met. We also had mutual friends. When I asked raj how he found me he said it was through a common friend. We would randomly chat here and there, until one of the days I happened to say, "I feel so tired, I couldn't sleep all night." Raj happened to say, "why didn't you call me. I said, "I didn't have your number". He gave me his number. I was a bit coy and reserved. I gave him my number too and we texted until he asked permission to call me on one of the days. I thought to myself what a gentleman and within that conversation he randomly said will you marry me? and I said what?! and then he replied oh nothing. We continued to talk, having no intention of getting into a relationship, but Raj seemed more determined than I was. As each day passed we spent more time talking to each other. One of the nights he called and decided to say I love you over the phone. I just said okay, I wasn't really sure if he was even in his senses. So I decided to ask him the next day if he remembers what he said. And he said, "Of course I do, I said, I love you."  After 4 months of talking nonstop Raj decided to give me a surprise and meet me at the Disney Store. He planned this surprise with my sister Raina. I had no idea what was happening all I remember is that I walked into the Disney Store and I thought I saw Raj passing by and of course I was taken away by surprise, instead of running towards him I ended up walking out of the store and Raina pushed me back into the store. I knew he was the one when he surprised me for the second time at my 21st birthday in Vegas where he met my entire family. 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My proposal was also another beautiful surprise organized by Raj in Pismo. It was not just a fun day, but a fun weekend with friends. Thanks to all our friends that helped out as well and kept the secret along with our parents. I just thought we were going living in the dunes at Pismo beach. The next day after breakfast Raj told me he had to go meet his friends and told me to get ready because we will be doing a photo shoot at the beach. I put on a dress and started getting ready. My best friend showed up at the door blindfolded me and took me to Margo Dodd Park. I got out of the car without a clue they took off the blindfold and there he was waiting for me at the end of the cliff with the ocean waves crashing against the rocks down below. And of course, that's when I knew it was truly happening! I was getting proposed to after 6 years of being together. 

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.
Venues were the first thing we booked, followed by makeup and hair artists. Then came the decor theme, cards, and outfits. 
Reception venue: Hyatt Valencia as a venue was already an extremely beautiful venue and their staff is just as amazing. Cristina and Katie both went above and beyond including the rest of the staff to make our Reception day perfect. Not only did they take care of our needs during the days of the event, but even after the event. 
Wedding Venue: Castaway as a venue was also an amazing venue with beautiful views. The day of coordinator Christina and her manager were amazing. They fixed all the last minute glitches that came up on the day of the wedding. 

Makeup- My makeup was done by Shabnam Hossine. She is a sweetheart with an amazing personality. She did my mom's makeup during my engagement back in 2016. I felt extremely comfortable with her and I feel like that's really important for brides to have that kind of relationship with her vendors so that they don't shy away from their vendors if they don't like something in particular. She did my makeup and also my mom's makeup for all four days. 

Hair- Farah was by Farah Shaikh. I also knew her from the time of my engagement. She is so sweet and a gem of a person. I can't begin to tell you how talented she is. She did my hair and makeup for all four days along with moms. She also did my bridesmaids hair on the day of the wedding. 

Bridal Outfit: Sham Mall & Frontier Heritage. I traveled all the way to India to find a beautiful outfit and since I couldn't really find the perfect outfit I created it with the help of Frontier Heritage Artesia by customizing a 15ft transparent veil with the vision of my bridesmaids holding my veil behind me as I walk down the aisle. 
Reception Outfit: Saree Palace Artesia Heeral was so warm and welcoming. I described what I was looking for and in a couple of minutes she had already picked out two lehengas she knew I would fall in love with. I picked the peach cold shoulder lehenga from them. The thing I love about them is that they sell 1 item per piece. 

My wedding decor was inspired by pastel colors. Since my husband knows I truly love pastel colors with forest green which was the color for my bridesmaids. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I honestly did not want to wear red because it was such a common bridal color, but as I was selecting my bridal clothes I saw other brides choosing different colors and came to realize that red was timeless. It will always be the color of the traditional Indian bride and I didn't want to have any regrets. I bought my outfit from sham mall in Chandigarh, but had it customized. I had the vision to get a custom veil placed on top of my original veil including a side dupatta which was designed by Neetu ji at Frontier Heritage. I was so impressed with how they designed the rest of my bridal outfit. 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Deciding my home decor and taking a wedding trip to India with my massi's. I spent a lot of time with my mom, dad, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. It truly brings the family together no matter how many miles apart we are. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food which was catered by Royal Tandoor. And the decor by Surabhi event decor. 
And last, but not least the dance floor and custom Bitmojis by music mantra. 

Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Yes, the time when I walked the aisle and when Raj lifted my veil. 

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.
For my mehendi and haldi events. I had envisioned pom style hanging decor and my mom decided to hand make those and bring my vision to life. It turned out amazing and I can't remember how many compliments we got for our home decor. 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Stay calm! I know it can be really hard especially since it's your big day. Also, if you want to work on details it's never too early. I started planning my wedding a year early and I still feel like that wasn't enough time. 

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The decor: SurabhiEventDecor - Suma took the time out to create this beautiful pastel floral mandap along with a matching sankedha that was designed by my mom and me with periwinkle blue and blush satin tablecloths to tie in the theme.
My jewelry was all the way from India- Manimuktaa jewelers 
Mehendi- In 2016 I had already decided that divyhenna by prashanta was going to be my henna artist and I had kept a special design from 2016 inspired by bridalmehendiqueen from India. I ended up showing that design to prashanta and she added her personal touch to the design as well. 
A piece of Cake by Pavani- We had a small cake and cupcakes. The cupcakes were made with real fruit-strawberry, pineapple, chocolate and red velvet with edible toppers.

 

The love doesn't end just yet!
