Orlando, FL Gujarati Wedding by Sona Photography

Good day, dolls! We are delighted to bring you an insight into Monica & Neil's lovely wedding. This celebration of love was not just elegant but truly faithful to traditional Gujarati weddings. Every small detail contributed to making this event not just classy, but exquisite. Garlands by Kirti and NJP Events & Design designed and executed this life-changing event to perfection, creating a magical and captivating decor that transformed the halls of the Omni Orlando Resort at Champions Gate into a perfect setting for such an important event! The traditional linen colors, combined with the ideal placement of the floral arrangements, were truly amazing! So much beauty could only be overtaken by the looks of our lovely Maharani, who looked ravishing after being pampered by Sumiyah, who took care of her beauty needs. And as if that wasn't enough, Monica's aunt created a fabulous Mehndi that crowned this Maharani's look adding an extra touch of traditional flair to an already flawless look, whereas Gokuls Henna Art helped all the guests with their Mehndi. Truly, this was an amazing ceremony that got captured thanks to the fascinating talent of Sona Photography. It was such an outstanding job that you'll love it! DJ Chirag Entertainment fired up the dance floor and set the musical mood for the different activities that took place during this evening! If you want to relive every detail of this celebration, you cannot miss the gallery that we've prepared for today! Enjoy it!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted to go traditional with my wedding lengha. I love the look of a classic red for an Indian wedding and thankfully found the one!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
For me, the most enjoyable part of the planning was getting to spend extra quality time with my family. They helped me with all the small details to help planning the larger tasks as well. This time I got to spend with them extra special to me.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Since our wedding was the first event after 2 years (due to the pandemic) both sides of our family was extremely excited to see the extended family and have something to celebrate. This made the celebration extra special and seeing all my family again after so long was amazing!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For any future brides I would say to just enjoy the moment! I know how much planning goes into every event and sometimes things don’t go as planned. Don’t stress about the small things and enjoy this time with your family as that is what you will remember when you look back!

I hope you have enjoyed and loved this story as much as I did. Come back for more inspiring ideas!

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.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mayur and I initially dated when we were 15/16! We stayed friends after that for many years and always bumped into each other at random social events. Life happened and we reconnected again after I turned 30 and it was an instant connection. We had the same values and morals and instantly fell back in love again. Our first date was at a vineyard and we knew fate brought us back together for a reason.

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.
Unlike other brides I hated the part of "planning". It was something that gave me a lot of anxiety because I wanted everything to be perfect. I had a vision in my head but had a hard time putting that down on paper. My husband who is a creative genius helped out tremendously in this department and pretty much executed all our ideas to our vendors. As our wedding was going to be on Long Island we had to find venues that could hold the amount of guests we had attending ( 800 +). We went with The Garden city hotel, Hyatt Regency and Crest Hollow country club. My hair and makeup was done by Kanwal Batool and her amazing staff - She has always been a dear friend to me so that was the one thing I was certain about. The Decor and theme we worked with House of Dipali ( Kiriba Floral) and Stylish Events of NY to execute the different visions we had for each event. They were an incredible help. Last but not least our attentive wedding planner Artistic Affairs ( Jharna) was there from the first moment to the last. She really gave us so many unique ideas and helped plan to perfect, we could not have had such beautiful executed events without her and her team!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
All my Indian outfits were custom done by Mom in India. I wore two different sarees for the wedding ceremony and they were custom made on the handloom. My mom actually picked out all the threads and warping and they were weaved by the weavers. Fun fact - I did not try on any of my Indian outfits till the day of each event! I trusted my moms choices and they all came out perfect. My reception outfit was an american white dress covered in swarvoski crystals. My family and I traveled to California to Karoza Bridal to pick it out as I fell in love with their designs on instagram. I initially envisioned myself in a mermaid gown but after spending hours there my mom pulled the perfect princess gown that I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on. Once again I guess its true, Moms know best.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in our wedding was the first dance. My close friend Breanne actually sang our first song and recorded it and sent it to us all the way from Spain. She was unable to make the wedding but its something that my husband and I will cherish forever. We were serenaded with the most beautiful voice as we were dancing ; We truly felt there was no one else in the room as we danced.

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 sangeet night was filled with so much laughter and dancing. We had so many people that performed and took their time out of their life to add something special and memorable that we can remember, we will always hold those dances and songs close to our hearts. I also wanted to do a combination of songs dedicated to my grandmother, Mom & dad and my in laws. It was something I always wanted to do and I am glad I had the opportunity to do that.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't sweat the small things! So many things are going to go wrong and not as you planned but just remember this is the start of the rest of your life with your perfect love and that is what's important.

Stick around, we have tons of inspiration prepared for you tomorrow!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I’ve always known of Maulik for most of my life but never really thought of him as anything besides my brother’s friend. It was only during high school that I started to really notice him. He’s always had a reputation of being the “smart guy” so I decided to take advantage of that and asked him to help me with college applications. I never thought that would be the start of one of the greatest friendships. We instantly connected and what started of as a conversation about college turned into something that meant so much more. I knew from day one that this was the man I would marry no matter what happened in life. And eight years later Maulik got on one knee and asked me to marry him. There was no doubt in my mind this day would come, it was just a matter of when.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
From the moment that I decided that I wanted to propose to Payal I knew it had to be something small but personal. Family means everything to her so when I got the ring, I went to her grandmother who was in the hospital at the time and asked for her blessing. Then came the "big plan" of how to do it. To make it personal, I decided to do the proposal in her backyard but needed the help of all her family to make it happen. So on a snowy March night, we placed 300 candles and lanterns around the entire backyard and set up a twinkle light backdrop. Payal was with her cousin at the hospital visiting her grandmother and thought nothing would possibly happen on that night since it was already too late at night. To her surprise, she pulled up to her house, saw a beautifully lit backyard with John Legend's song All of Me playing in the background. As she walked towards me, I was more nervous than I had ever been. This was not the girl I was asking to only marry me but she was the one I was asking to take care of for the rest of her 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.
It was pretty easy to plan the logistics part of the wedding since my brother got married the year before. I used his Caterer (Rasoi III) and Decorator (Wedding Design and Decor) but of course went with our own ideas. Hair & Makeup was also simple since I've seen Preeti Riley's and Fiza Mansoor's work during other family member's weddings and I instantly knew they were the ones I needed to get. The same goes for the mehndi artist Monita Bijoriya who is phenomenal. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I chose my bridal lengha from India and before arriving there I already decided I wanted to wear a neutral cream or champagne color. Luckily for me, the first shop I stepped into I found the outfit I was looking for. I had a vision in my mind and it was exactly what I wanted.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Maulik and I loved planning our mehndi because it was low-key and in my backyard but gave us the opportunity to plan it according to what we wanted. We let our parents have their way for the wedding so mehndi was something that was completely ours. From live South Indian food stations to an actual ice cream truck, what more could we have hoped for!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food hands down! If you know my mother, she is a great cook and it was really important to her that all the guests enjoy the food. If there was one thing she did not sacrifice on, it was definitely the food.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment I sat down on the mandap and saw Maulik, I instantly forgot about the other 450 guests and realized that this is the man I will be spending my life with. I tend to micromanage everything but at that moment, I didn't care about what went wrong or what I could've done differently, all I cared about was enjoying the ceremony and making sure I remember every bit of it.

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.
Shout to the greatest family for planning a program for our garba that consisted of dances and skits to relay our love story to all the guests.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Planning is the greatest part about getting married. Sometimes things don't always go your way but try to keep a relaxed attitude and remember to stay calm. Most importantly, when it finally comes to the wedding day, remember this is your day and it will be a great one so enjoy it and cherish every moment.

Please visit us tomorrow for more. You will love what we have prepared for you!
