How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He is a pilot and i work in an IT firm, i was flying to california to see my sister for holidays that's when my mom sent me his bio data. We met after that and the rest is history.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Best proposal ever, he was going to take me around new york city in those small planes and he was going to fly. That morning he made some excuse and he told me to go, i didn't want to go without him but he was adamant. His friend was going to take me around now, we were doing the pre-checks on the runway, and suddenly I saw him . I got happy thinking that he is coming with me now.All of a sudden I heard bollywood music and he was bending on one knee, i came out and I saw all my friends, my sister and everyone standing in the back with the will you marry me sign. It started raining when i 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.
I always wanted all the events at one place, so I was looking for a venue that had multiple locations  for different ceremonies and also we had a hotel upstairs so it was convenient for all guests to stay in. When I saw Sheraton for the first time, I was in love with the beautiful chandelier all over and all the modern vibes. They had a beautiful outdoor location where we did our wedding ceremony under the sun.
For me the decor was the most important thing because it can definitely add an extra wow factor to the place. Weddingdesign & Decor team were perfect. We chose beautiful fresh flowers décor for our wedding ceremony and for reception we did a completely different look. Royal blue theme with hint of gold. Our guests loved both the decor because it was so different from each other.
For my Hair & Makeup I hired  Dawn & Marisa, They did my makeup & hair at my SIL's wedding. I didn't even think twice before booking them. Marissa did an amazing job with all my looks, the makeup was so fresh and clean. I showed Dawn exactly what i wanted with my hair, different hairstyle for each events. Everyone loved it. They are the best.
As our wedding planner we hired Detailed Affairs team , literally best decision ever. They were on point starting from vendor meetings, walkthrough. They literally took care of everything.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always want to wear red on my wedding day but i was looking for something unique. Because of the pandemic i was not able to go to India for my wedding shopping, so i shopped all the outfits online including jewelry for all events. When i saw the video out of my wedding outfit for the first, i was in love with the outfit. It was exactly what i wanted  , gorgeous and unique.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning a wedding during pandemic is STRESSFUL !!! I planned everything from here as India was under strict lockdown, got all my pre-events, wedding & reception outfits online. I also got all my Jewelry for all events online. I used to be on calls & video calls with all the vendors until 2-3 am everyday. Instagram was a savior, I used to look for different designers, outfits, and all trending styles 24*7. Funny part , now I get a message that my screen time has reduced  by 60% post wedding LOL. The best part after all the stress is looking at everything coming together, trust me best feeling ever.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All the guests loved the Wedding & reception decor. They also loved the idea of outdoor wedding, we lucked out on the weather, it was freezing outside for all our pre-events and I really wanted outdoor wedding , it was 75  degrees. They also loved the flash mob dances, for my sister, Sil & bridal party walk, I asked them to do a small dance, instead of just walking in. Still obsessed over that

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
At our wedding when nikhil was putting the sindoor on my forehead, it fell on my nose. Everyone kept saying that means he loves you alot. I had the biggest smile on my face.

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.
People always say  the wedding is always about the bride, i wanted it to be about nikhil as well. I got customized kalree with small airplanes hanging, he absolutely loved it. I did small gestures with airplanes, we had airplanes on our cake. The  Reception seating chart was something different related to aviation.
For the wedding we had a lively baraat procession consisting of Bollywood bangers, colorful smoke bombs and choreographed performance by the groom's sisters & brothers on our family's favorite song "chotte chotte bhaiyo ke" . Following his energetic entry, I made my way to the mandap with my sister. It was a perfect sunny day  & our gorgeous fresh flower mandap looked perfect . And, ending it all on a high note, we drove off as newlyweds in our Slingshot Car.
A grand party that celebrated our love along with our loved ones,  the reception was packed with glitz and glamour. Nikhil and I made a smashing choreographed entry on the ‘Aeroplane’ song. Furthermore, touching speeches by our friends, siblings, and parents added an emotional touch to the event.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For all the other Bride-To- Be i would say The big day will be over before you  even realise it, don't stress over the details. Just Enjoy. Always go with what you & your partner want, remember it's your day not anyone else's.  Pick everything that you both like, don't think twice if you love it, don't forget you will remember this day for the rest of your life , so no regrets. A wedding should be an expression of your unique style & story together.

What an inspiring wedding celebration! Make sure to join us tomorrow for more lovely and inspiring ideas.

Somerset, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Priyanca Rao Photography

Welcome to another inspiring love story, Maharanis! Priyanca Rao Photography amazed us one more time with an extraordinary wedding album you will love. This time the visual storytellers narrate the union of Shruthi and Joffie, a New Jersey couple that hosted a magical Christian-Indian soiree that was nothing short but a dream. Even when they had to make some tweaks to their original plans, one thing is for certain, Eventify's experts organized everything and assured the couple still had a fabulous event. First, they exchanged vows in a beautiful and unique Christian ceremony. The large wedding party that joined the newlyweds for the occassion really dressed to impress. The lovely ladies donned WestxEast's royal blue lehengas, while neat blue suits from Robbie & Co provided the perfect style for the gentlemen. They coordinate perfectly! Now let's draw your attention to Maharani Shruti. She was unquestionably the queen of the day, wearing an Enaura Bridal white long sleeves lace gown and finished the look with a spectacular veil. Our bride went for a natural yet glowy makeup, nailing the perfect wedding look thanks to the beauty expert Arfana Jasar. Joffie joined the love of his life on their big day wearing an impeccable black tux provided by Robbie & Co. They both looked wonderfully elegant together. They picked the iconic Marigold, an enchanting spot that offered an extraordinary room to build great memories for their final event. Loza Events made the most of this grandiose space and decorated it with a geometric arch that will leave you in awe! From Chand Palace's food, flowers, the music of MVP DJs, and the multiple dances, it was a memorable and upscale affair! Don't miss any detail, and take a look at this dreamy union's images in our complete gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met JJ when I was visiting one of my friends in Philadelphia. I knew he was the one very early on in our relationship. I remember falling in love with how genuine, kindhearted, and God fearing he was. I think the moment I knew I would marry him was when I was having a bad day and lashed out at him and he responded to me by asking if he could pray with me. I still remember all the anger/sadness melted away in that moment, and was replaced with peace. I knew that God brought this man into my life in that moment and that he had a plan for us. JJ does that to this day, he grounds me, is the person I lean on, and can count on the most. I truly feel blessed to have married my best friend!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Anybody who knows me, knows that I am a hard person to surprise, however leave it to JJ to pull off the best surprise. I was attending my friends wedding in South Jersey and was staying at the hotel there after the wedding Saturday night. The next morning some of us had breakfast at the hotel and my siblings/one of my friends tricked me into going to this friend's hotel room to get something. Little did I know that I was headed to the start of my proposal. I walked to the door and saw an envelope with my name written on it taped to the door and responded hey look its my name. I just thought it was a coincidence and it took me a minute or two to register what was going on. I turned and saw my sister with her phone out and finally realized what was going on. She told me to open the door. I was completely surprised and still in shock but begin to open the door. Once I opened the door, I saw a room filled with rose gold balloons with pictures and messages attached to the bottom, and one of my best friends hiding in the room. There was a card with an envelope waiting for me on the bed. In it was a sweet note from JJ telling me to get ready and meet him where it all began. My sister had sneakily packed a dress, heels, and my jewelry for me. I got ready and was driven to the Philadelphia Art Museum which is where JJ had asked me to be his girlfriend five years ago. I was brought to the back where the gazebo was and saw him waiting for me. He met me and walked me towards the beautifully decorated gazebo where he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes! Afterwards, we met our closest family and friends at a restaurant to celebrate.

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 was difficult due to Covid-19. We had a majority of our wedding planned out prior to Covid hitting however a lot of things came to a stand still. The most difficult thing about planning or having a wedding during Covid was the uncertainty. I remember we couldn't send out invitations until 1-2 months prior to our wedding because there was changing guidelines on the amount of guests we were allowed. We had to send evites rather than physical invites due to the time constraint. We had to adjust our guest list to half the number, and a lot of our family from other states were not able to attend. We hired a live stream vendor (sumodjacobphotography) in order to share our special day with those who could not attend. Sumod did an amazing job! We were truly so lucky to have amazing vendors that worked with us during Covid. Arfana Jasar, my hair and makeup artist, made me feel so comfortable while doing my make up. She wore a mask, gloves and got tested prior to my wedding. She executed my natural hair and makeup look that I wanted so beautifully! My florist and decorator, Sarah (Loza events) adjusted all my decor from outdoors to indoor the week before my wedding (Governor Murphy of NJ had just announced that we could have indoor events with limited capacity starting the weekend of my wedding) and she captured my vision perfectly. I still remember being in awe of all the decor walking out after being announced as husband and wife for the first time at our reception. WestxEast, the company that created my custom bridesmaids outfits ensured that my bridesmaids outfits were made during lockdown and reached me from India prior to my wedding. I absolutely loved how my bridesmaids outfits turned out, they were so classy and stunning! Our event coordinators from Eventify (Aji and Neethu) sat on many long calls with us hammering out details and last minute changes and were on top of making sure everything/everyone complied with Covid protocols and that things ran smoothly. Our photographer (Priyanca Rao), videographer (Urmil Dalal) and DJ/MC (MVP DJS) made us feel so comfortable our whole wedding day and made it feel like a normal event during a time when things didnt. They helped us to forget about Covid for a day and helped add to our special day so much. Although the planning process due to Covid was pretty stressful, JJ and I were able to have the best wedding due to our family and our amazing vendors.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All our guests came up to us to thank us for helping them safe at our wedding. We complied with all the Covid protocols with tables being 6ft or more apart, having guests wear masks, and having hand sanitizer at each table. Our wedding was one of the first events that many of our guests came out of lockdown for and many people were nervous at being at a large event. However after attending the wedding, all our guests made it a point to come tell us that they felt safe and thanked us for ensuring that. We were extremely thankful that nobody contracted Covid at our wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in my wedding that constantly replays in my mind is the first look we did prior to our wedding. We met at our venue at the gazebo in the back prior to our wedding ceremony. I still remember feeling so overwhelmed with emotion walking towards him waiting for me in the gazebo and the small on his face when he turned around and saw me. He started to tear up and hugged me so tight. We then proceeded to pray together and thank God for bringing us together This moment was just for us and it was so special. Our photographer Priyanca Rao did an amazing job capturing this moment.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
After planning my wedding, the biggest piece of advice I would give to other brides is to choose vendors who you connect really well with and who are genuine. I have to say my vendors went above and beyond during a very difficult time and that ensured that we were able to enjoy our special day.

Don't forget to read our last feature of the week tomorrow!
