Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Studio KSD

Maharanis! Riki and Kevin’s wedding is here to warm up this cold January day! To begin the wedding day, the beautiful couple met for a romantic pre-wedding photo shoot with Studio KSD who also captured all the stunning highlights of the marvelous ceremony, indoors The Marigold! The luxurious ballroom that harbored the sparkling union was transformed by MM Celebrations with the couple’s vision of soft hues, a warm glow and fresh flowers over the mandap! I just adore the bright red color of Maharani Riki’s Ridhi Mehra lehenga design and her natural makeup from Payal MUA posing next to the dapper groom Kevin who also dazzled with an impeccable white color Sherwani. From the exquisitely appointed mandap details to the stunning chandeliers, this ceremony was a lifetime experience!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
What was supposed to be a “day on the beach” turned into a proposal of a lifetime! It was a beautiful and sunny day in Clearwater Beach as Shashank and I were planning on celebrating his birthday with a nice dinner on the shore. As we walked along the sand during sunset, I thought to myself how romantic of a moment this was. When I glanced out into the distance I saw what looked like an Indian wedding taking place, with bright drapes flowing in the breeze. I turned to Shashank and said, “Wow that looks so beautiful, someone is getting married!” As we got closer, I noticed three large photos of a couple and soon realized that the couple was US! I immediately turned to Shashank and saw the look in his eyes. At that moment I knew this was no longer his birthday celebration. He took my hands and proceeded with the most beautiful speech, which pinnacled with “Richa, will you marry me?” This was the best day of my 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.
Planning: Over the next year, we started planning our fairytale wedding. We were incredibly fortunate to have our families and a great group of friends to help coordinate and organize all events. They helped with planning all the details for each event and made sure that the execution exceeded our expectations. 
 
Wedding: 
Our theme was royalty and regal embodying an Indian King and Queen. Shashank and I both wore custom royal designer clothing and designer kundan stone jewelry.
 
Our mandap was the largest Occasions by Shangri-La has ever created, at 40 feet wide with a 12-foot center golden medallion. Mandap had ornate carvings and cutwork and an abundance of fresh flowers. We had a raised cat-walk aisle.
 
We color coordinated between both sides. Richa’s bridesmaids wore pink and gold sarees. Shashank’s groomsmen wore matching pink and gold kurta pyjama with gold safaa. Shashank's female cousins wore green Anarkali dresses. The guests were given pink safaas (turbans). And all the guests had red sunglasses with “Shashank & Richa 2017” written on them.
 
Baarat: 
Shashank had a traditional Indian style baraat with over 300 guests in attendance. There was a surprise “dance-off” performed by Richa’s bridesmaids and Shashank’s cousins which was led by Shashank.
 
Shashank was escorted by his parents and brother to the horse & carriage to start the baraat. His groomsmen and cousins lined up on both sides creating a very special aisle and welcoming. 
 
Groomsmen and cousins were given gold safaas to wear. Additionally, all the guests were given pink safaa to wear and have as a memento of the event.
 
Shashank, his parents, and his brother walked down a red carpet aisle lined with his groomsmen and cousins and Richa’s bridesmaids who showered him with rose petals. We had a raised stage outside on the Fountain Plaza for the Milni ceremony. 
 
Richa walked under a decorative red cloth which was held up by her bridesmaids to greet Shashank and place the haar on him.
 
Vidhai: We made our departure as newlyweds in a Vintage 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud Convertible.
 
Reception: 
Décor: Starry night with a full LED-backdrop which changed colors throughout the night to set the mood. Hanging crystal chandeliers. Centerpieces: Several styles of large crystal vases with Fresh floral arrangements consisting of Magenta orchids, Purple, Plum, and Blue fresh floral and floral blossoms. We included a set of 2 48-seat elevated estate tables so that all the guests could have the same experience.
 
Reception Entertainment included Stilt walkers, statue people, and chair balancing act, dances by cousins and by bridesmaids
 
Newlywed reception entrance: This was quite the surprise grand entrance. Guests had been facing the doors as that was the way the wedding party entered so they were expecting to see us also enter from the double doors. Suddenly the 12-foot golden medallion started turning on the stage when our entrance music began and all heads turned as we were standing behind it and made our rotating grand entrance on the golden medallion! So memorable and really a WOW factor. Many guests recalled the entrance as “James Bond-esque
 
First dance: Tere Sang Yara and Cheez Badi (cheez badi was a surprise remix we added at the end of our first dance to get the guests excited)
 
Father/Daughter Dance: What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong (backstory behind the song is this was one of the first stage performances I had made as a child in school and I will always remember my dad being there by my side before I got on stage to calm my nerves, cheering me on in the front row as I performed, and the first to hug me after the performance. Since that day it became our father-daughter song and at my wedding reception, I got to dance to that song with him!
 
Mother/Son Dance: “Meri Maa” from Yaariyan. This song characterizes the bond between Shashank and his mother. Detailing the sacrifices she had made to see her son happy as he grew into the gentleman he is on his wedding day.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Bride's Jewelry:
 
Pithi- fresh roses, flowers, and berries
Sangeet: all diamond gemstone jewelry
Wedding: all real kundan jewelry
Reception: custom-made Swarovski crystal tiara
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All the “WOW” Moments our guests still talk about to this day:
 
1. Newlywed surprise rotating grand entrance on the 12-foot golden medallion at the reception
2. Baraat battle dance between Richa’s bridesmaids and Shashank’s cousins
3. Entertainment: stilt walkers and balancing chair act, interactive live singers at the Sangeet
4. Vidhai: Our departure as newlyweds in a Vintage 1962 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud Convertible.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
This was truly a magical fairytale wedding of our dreams. We are so lucky and grateful that everything went flawlessly and exceeded our vision. To have celebrated with everyone we love meant the world to us. Our family and friends have told us our wedding is one never to be forgotten! We couldn’t agree more!
 
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.
Events: Pithi/Mendhi: Traditional décor colors: yellow, orange. Submerged rose centerpieces. A live band provided music. Shashank and my pithi were performed side by side on the same stage so both families were able to come together and enjoy.
 
Grah Shanti: Mustard Yellow and Teal. Live band/music. Both families coordinated outfit colors (white, red and gold)
 
Sangeet: Festive and colorful Indian Musical and Dance party. Included not only a live band but also world-class singers. Shashank and Richa sat on a Rajasthani style swing in front of a colorful Ribbon wall with hanging mela décor. There were traditional Indian khatla (bench) which guests sat on. There was a wide variety of food including Chinese, American, Mexican, Indian and more. The food was beautifully displayed under colorful canopies. The event had a combination of garba, sangeet, live dance performances by parents, friends, family, and Richa. We had a colorful and life-size dhol cake which actually made dhol sounds when hitting the sides. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We created a personalized “SR” emblem that was located on all of our wedding materials: welcome baskets, return gifts, fruit carving during the cocktail reception. 
We placed large 5-foot portraits of ourselves in various places of the hotel to direct guests to each event. All of our guests stayed at the Hilton Orlando Resort giving them a full wedding getaway weekend. The hotel had placed several life-size portraits of Shashank and Richa, along with personalized signage throughout the hotel. Guests also had access to  24-hour hospitality suites to get together and have a great time throughout the whole weekend. 
 
Food played a large role in our wedding planning. We wanted to ensure our guests had a variety of cuisines to choose from throughout the 4-day event. This included: Gujarati, Punjabi, Thai, Italian, Mexican, South Indian, and Chinese. We also had live food stations where our guests could customize their food. We had an assortment of desserts along with a life-size dhol cake at the sangeet and a 7-tier wedding cake with 6 different flavors, during the reception.
 
As I told Shawna (who has been so amazing and helpful getting our video posted and now all our photos and story) we only want the vendors who truly went above and beyond for us to be showcased.
 

We will be right back with some stunning reception moments!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband's name is Rushang Patel. According to my close friend, (who is a mutual friend of ours) we had met each other many many times over the past 10 years. However, we never really paid close attention to each other. Either I was dating someone at the time or he was dating someone,  or we were just star-crossed lovers. 
 
On October 31, 2015, it was written in the stars for us to meet again, but this time it was meant to turn into a lifetime bond. I was attending my best friends 30th birthday, and Rushang was attending his close friends birthday in New York City. It turned out that my best friend is his close friend's cousin, and they were having a joint birthday party. It was a Halloween party, so I was dressed as a fairy in a tutu with wings. Rushang's personality is very much like the life of the party, and a unique individual. He was wearing a very hideous looking "peace" sign mask that immediately caught my attention, being that it was very random. We both enjoyed the party with our friends, and eventually, he literally swept me off my feet and carried me to the dance floor (randomly of course). Here, Rushang told me I finally was able to get you away from our friends so we can talk to each other. We proceeded to dance and talk the night away until it was time to go. The time went by so fast in my mind, however, we had been slow dancing (during fast music) and talking for almost two hours. He asked me for my phone number because he wanted to keep in touch with me after that night. Knowing that he was friends with my best friend, I trusted him enough to go ahead and take the plunge. 
 
Later, I found out that Rushang was actually there for that one weekend after being away for over a month. I learned that Rushang was going to be away in Quantico for six months of training. We talked over the phone and Skype for a month after we met, before our first date.  Our first date was at a hibachi restaurant in Jersey City, followed by a private night time tour of Ellis Island where we could see a beautiful view of the NYC skyline and Statue of Liberty. 
 
I didn't know he was the one until approximately one and a half month after our first date. At this time, a blizzard had passed, and we were snowed in on a Saturday. Sunday morning, Rushang and I went down to dig our cars out. I realized that I left my second shovel at my parent's house, so there was only one shovel. He sent me back upstairs to my apartment, after my attempts of borrowing a shovel from someone to help Rushang was unsuccessful. I was able to see the parking lot from my apartment, and I periodically checked to see if he was done digging the cars out. Our cars were done in 45 minutes, but he was out there for over an hour and a half. After a while, I went to the window to see what was taking him so long. That's when I saw that he was helping all my neighbors in the parking lot in digging their cars out. He helped at least five other people that day, and that's when I knew that he was the one. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After 7 months of being together, Rushang was stationed in another state for work, which led us to have a long distance relationship. That same year we had reached our one year anniversary of dating on October 31, 2016. He came home for Christmas and New Years in 2016, and I thought he was going back after new years. Well, he decided to surprise me by extending his stay for an extra week. I knew something was fishy because he never does that! We did date nights often, so on Friday, January 6, 2017, we had a date night planned at The Liberty House in Jersey City. One of my friends told me to wear something nice, and my sister in law told me to paint my accent nail rose gold (I have a rose gold obsession). Both also was weird, because I always do my nails, and I always wear a nice dress when we go out. So I had an idea that something was going on. We got to Liberty House, and Rushang said why don't we go outside (in 30-degree weather!). Even though it was bizarre, I just listened and went outside with him. At the Liberty House, you can see the NYC skyline in their outdoor section. That's where he got down on one knee and popped the question, and I said YES! My brother in law was right behind us taking pictures. Afterward, we had our dinner, and all our family and friends were waiting for us at a bar to celebrate our special night with us. My ring is very special to me.  The center diamond has a halo of rose gold with pink diamonds in it, which brings out my personality to perfection and it was exactly what I wanted. Many years ago, I had seen that specific ring on a website and I fell in love with it. I had told my friends that one day when someone decides to marry me, this will be my engagement ring, and now it is!
 
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.
Initially, the whole planning process seemed so overwhelming, but once I got the venue, everything else just fell into place. I chose all my vendors based on their creativity, character, personality, and compassion. I met so many people, and not everyone makes you feel like family. Teresa Gasper was our venue manager at the time, and she truly made me feel like she was giving me her home to get married in. Heena Malhotra Das was my hair and makeup artist, and she listened and understood all the little details I wanted for my looks. She never pushed any ideas on me, and that is what made me feel so comfortable that I could blindly trust her in her artistic abilities. She made it a point to make my looks unique for all four of my events (we had a Garba on Friday and a Sangeet on Saturday before the wedding weekend). I don't have any sisters, and she made me feel like my sister was getting me ready for my wedding. Not only did we have a great relationship with me being her client, we carried on our relationship afterward and are now good friends! 
 
Similarly, Sachi Sood from Partyland Sajawat understood that I had no idea what I wanted as far as a theme, and knew nothing about decor, but I knew that colors were important to me. She spent time getting to know me and my personality, then made my decor look like a reflection of who I am and symbolized my personality. I wanted rose gold somewhere during each event. Subtle, but significant enough to catch your eye. She specially ordered rose gold frames for my wedding, and made special rose gold centerpieces for our estate tables. We both worked together to make our vision come to life, and to give our decor a tasteful and unique look. 
 
Ron and Bless Soliman are the power couple of photography! They are two of the most nicest and humble people I've met. They are so good at what they do and make you feel like you are their family. They always are full of surprises and give such cute presents. I couldn't have gotten through our wedding day without such heartwarming photographers. They made us feel very much at ease and ensured that we had a good time and remembered to keep us smiling. When my dad passed away, we needed a picture of him for his services, and Bless had sent us the PERFECT and most beautiful picture of him in the span of minutes. We are forever grateful to both of them for their compassion and love. 
 
Daniel Inzitari is one of the most creative cinematographers I've had the pleasure to meet. His film school background shines so beautifully in his work. His subtle creativity with using voice-overs, his organization, his camera angles, his fun-loving nature made it so easy to act natural in front of the camera. I could watch our wedding highlight film for hours and never get tired of it. His creativity and choice of instrumental music were perfect for all the scenes in our highlight film. 
 
DJ Gaurav is our longtime friend and such a humble human being. He was so attentive to all our needs and did a great job mixing Punjabi, Hindi, and American music for all our events. He is very good at reading cues and could tell when to transition to ending father daughter and mother son dances based on fatigue and body language. His attention to detail is impeccable, and he is so amazing that Rushang's baraat went on for an hour! People could not stop dancing! 
 
Palav Desai from Padma Graphic Design did our programs, place cards, and table numbers. I spent countless hours editing draft after draft. Her patience and hard work on the details of our wedding made even the smallest items stand out to our guests. 
 
Brijen Patel did an amazing job with my husband's safa and all of our family member's safas. He especially went up to my Dad's room as he was having a hard time walking back and forth due to his illness, which meant so much to me. I couldn't be happier with our amazing team, and would blindly trust each and every one of these vendors for all my future events.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My family is from Delhi, India so I went shopping in Delhi. I bought both my ceremony and reception outfits from Frontier Raas in South Extension II, New Delhi. I always knew that I didn't want an all red lengha. Many years ago, I had seen someone wear a velvet blue lengha with a red dupatta and I fell in love with that idea. I tried on a couple of velvet blue outfits, but I kept going back to the first one. I also tried one full red one on too, but it just wasn't for me. I tried the first one on one more time and looked at my Dad. That look of love and emotion from him is when I said Yes to the dress, a moment I will never ever forget. My reception outfit I designed myself. I love sparkle and glitter and wanted sequin in my lengha, but I wanted something that no one had ever seen before. I tried on things that had sequin, but nothing met my expectations of the kind of sparkle I wanted. I had seen a lengha with a gradient sequin look and showed my inspiration to the designers at Frontier Raas. They realized that I wanted something specific and decided to make my vision come to life. My skirt has small mirrors that were all put on by handwork on the bottom that transitions into gold sequin, and then silver sequin. There is an underskirt of lace under the net which the sequin sits on which gives the skirt the elegant but light look I wanted. The waist of the skirt has scalloped edging. Being that I am a Hindu Punjabi, traditionally we wear Chooda on our wrists when we get married. I wanted a red border on the bottom of the skirt to match the chooda. My pink dupatta was hand embroidered to have red flows to match the chooda, and white flowers to give it a contrast. It also had scalloped edging to match the waist of the skirt. I designed a light sleeveless blouse with light sequin to give the skirt and dupatta more of the spotlight. It took three to four months for Frontier to make my reception lengha, and I was so incredibly happy with their hard work and dedication. We had a lot of WhatsApp chats back and forth which helped me feel comfortable in trusting them to do an amazing job. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The day of the events is when all your hard work pays off. From dances, outfits, to the decor and programs, from place cards to table numbers, from DJ to Photography, and from cinematography to a black light up dance floor. That feeling I got when my vision came to life, was the greatest feeling.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our first dance. I spent months doing the choreography for it, and it came out perfect. One day Rushang and I were listening to the DJ NYK podcast, and the song Soch Na Sake was remixed into it. It was the first time I had heard that song, and that day I knew that it was going to be our song. Not only did it have a romantic part to it, but it also had parts with EDM music that my husband loves. Our performance had a mix of ballroom dancing, freestyle, and a tiny touch of classical. It was the perfect portrayal of our separate personalities, and our personalities together. Our guests also loved our Filmfare magazine wedding programs which I designed myself, and our graphic designer (Palav) brought them to life. Our table numbers and place cards were also a design of mine that she brought to life with glitter paper that matched our black, silver, and rose gold glitter theme. I also received many compliments and texts about all my outfits and where I got them from. Lastly, we gave coasters as party favors at our reception and our guests loved them and utilize them all the time. There were 4 colors and each color had a different quote, our names, and our wedding date. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My Dad's Speech and our Father-Daughter Dance is something that I remember very distinctly. I was so concerned for him, and whether he was going to be able to give the speech and dance with me despite having Stage 4 Gall Bladder Cancer. He pulled through, and he did it all so well. I will never forget his strength, and I am so proud of him for battling something so painful to make it through our wedding gracefully. 
 
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.
My husband is Gujurati, and we had a Garba on June 15, 2018. I wore a sea green Swati Manish Lengha from Mumbai. The decor was a Morrocan themed decor by Partyland Sajawat. We had a Sangeet on June 16, 2018. The theme was very colorful and Punjabi themed decor. That day I performed a very special dance incorporating my family, and my new family which brought the entire room to tears. That dance is very special to my entire family as it's the last memory we all have together with my Dad. We had a traditional Punjabi Jaggo and Boliyan which was the highlight of our sangeet. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was so much fun! I wore a magenta and light yellow/cream lengha from Frontier Raas.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Wedding Planning seems so overwhelming at first, but everything falls into place the way it's supposed to. I'm so glad I followed my heart by choosing all my vendors. They were all so supportive, and there for me, my husband, and my family during our toughest and happiest time. My biggest and most important advice to brides out there is to follow your heart when choosing your vendors, your outfits, and every single detail during your wedding. Don't settle for anything less than what you dreamed of! 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndikalogie did my mehndi and Dhara was so wonderful! I love elephants and she incorporated elephants in my mehndi on my feet and hands. She was so flexible with timing and positioning when she was completing my mehndi. Her artistic ability is the best I've ever seen and I truly commend her for her attention to detail and creativity. Not only are Dhara's designs beautiful, but her mehndi ingredients are organic and leave a beautiful color on both your hands and feet. Usually, mehndi doesn't come out dark on the dorsal side of my hands, but for the first time, it came out perfect all because of Dhara and her natural mehndi ingredients.  Her assistant who did my family's mehndi was very professional and did a fantastic job.  I enjoyed chatting with her, and we had some good laughs while she was applying my mehndi as well. The Hanover Marriott was the perfect venue. I only wanted hotels out of convenience. When I looked at venues, the things that stuck out to me always were the ballroom carpet, lobby, and overall ambiance. The Hanover Marriott had a modern ambiance, and that's what I loved about it.
 

See you in a bit for all the details and best moments of Anita and Rushang’s wedding bash!

They affirmed their commitment to each other surrounded by immaculate white drapes that provided a romantic and intimate feel and that was specially created by Red Umbrella’s décor team. The beautiful fuchsia rose petals added a bright color to the heavenly setting and the aisle runner where the lovely Priti made an awe-inspiring entry wearing a stylish white and red lehenga richly embroidered with golden embellishment that gave her a stunning regal look. Check our full gallery for more beautiful details.
