Citrus Springs, FL Indian Fusion Wedding by Sona Photography

Good morning darlings! Today we have an enchanting celebration starring Bhakti & Vijay. Our sweet couple will take us back to a heartwarming summer day. Staring with a jolly ceremony at the Citrus Springs Community Center, the couple said "yes" to a lifetime of love and happiness. Bhakti & Vijay's was brought to life with Nikun Events' magnificent embellishment. This fantastic team is as talented with the decor as they are with the design of such beautiful events. The lovebirds had Pea to Tree Events' invaluable assistance to ensure the event was successful and enjoyable for all. If there is something I enjoyed the most with this story, it was definitely Bhakti's divine looks! Our Maharani had a gorgeous lengha from Binari Art. Her attire was complemented by Michele Renee The Studio's graceful makeup art. This prolific artist's work is always a marvel to contemplate. Bhakti was no exception! The charming bride was all about elegance and beauty with the delicate mehndi art Tejal Henna did for her. She was stunning! Her heavenly looks shone as bright as her love for Vijay all the time. These two are the sweetest! So, of course, their wedding day cake had to be just as dandy. They entrusted Valhalla Bakery with it and Amrit Palace to delight their guests with delicious cuisine. I am sure the attendants were dazzled by all the aspects of this celebration, but the lively ambiance  Krish Entertainment created must be a favorite! Laughter and fondness were incessantly present while everyone relished in the picture-perfect scene in front of them with the bride and groom lost in each other's eyes. Bhakti & Vijay had a grand wedding, indeed. Thanks to Sona Photography's artistic skills, this day's romance will live on forever, frozen in a charming set of pictures. Maharanis, we have all these lovely pictures in a compelling gallery,  ready to ignite your imagination. Go on and fall in love!

Richmond, VA Indian Fusion Wedding by Studio Nine Photography

Happy Thursday, my dear Maharanis! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with love and inspiration. Let me be a part of that with the astonishing story I am about to share with you! Anjali & Suraj had a celebration full of glamour and love. The Hilton Richmond Hotel & Spa/Short Pump served as their love nest for this commemoration. The flawless planning execution done by Weddings by Reema and the charming decor from Gulmohar Weddings gave the event a fresh breath of creativity. It was perfect for our Maharani's delight! Now that we are talking about Anjali, ladies, I swear her attires were heavenly! She looked like a goddess with three different fits for the celebration, including Neetu Rohra and Lista Jewels designs. You'll fall in love with all of them as well! Complemented with the graceful touch only Styles By Swati - Salon SBS can bring with her makeup artistry, our Maharani shone brighter than the stars thanks to the jewelry from Lista Jewels. Our bride was pampered by Jignasa Choksi - Mehendi Artist, and her gorgeous Mehndi design. Her sweetheart, Suraj, enamored everyone his way. The spectacular entrance he did for the Baraat couldn't have been possible without Olde Towne Carriages' services. Maharanis, he was a complete prince! This flawless wedding only got better as the night went on with music and fireworks courtesy of Luxe Event Group, making everyone burst with joy. Aroma's catering was perfect for this sweet event as the guests enjoyed their cuisine. Maharanis, I am sure every guest will take Anjali & Suraj's special day in their hearts. Studio Nine Photography + Cinema professionals made it possible by capturing a lovely set of pictures. They are all available for you in this splendid gallery. Wait no more and fall in love, ladies!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was my last year in dental school at VCU when I was introduced to Suraj through our mutual friends. Suraj was a 3rd year at VCU medical school at the time and even though we had some mutual friends, our paths had never previously crossed. I knew I was leaving for residency soon but I was excited to meet him! We ended up really liking each other and began dating. We spent a year doing 6 hour drives between Richmond and Philadelphia while Suraj finished medical school. When it was time for him to rank his residency list, he only chose Philadelphia programs (which I didn’t know at the time) and matched into his number one spot and moved up to Philly so we could finally be together!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
On a cloudy day in March, Suraj and I drove down to Richmond. He told me we were going to his Dad's retirement party (His Dad said this was the first time in his life that he had lied - just for me!). He took me to the James River, with the city skyline as our backdrop, and the sound of the rushing water. As we walked across the bridge hand in hand, Suraj asked me to continue walking with him through life in this same way. As we got to the middle, there was a bench covered with roses - and that was where Suraj bent down on one knee (I tearfully followed) and proposed! Our amazing (& very cold) sisters hid on the bridge and captured all the incredible moments. We then recreated our first date, at the spots where we first met. Finally, Suraj took me to dinner and surprised me once again with a room full of our family to end the greatest day.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My jewelry was really special to me for all the events. For my Sangeet, I wore my paternal grandmother's wedding jewelry. She had passed it down to my Mom who saved it for me for my wedding. It is an opal set that was made around the 1940s. For the wedding ceremony, I wore my Mother's wedding jewelry. It is a 'Rani haar' that my maternal grandparents had made for my Mom for her own wedding. Since all my grandparents have passed away, these little touches helped me feel like I had a small part of them at my wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A lot of my family from India could not make it to the wedding due to COVID. I was really sad to not have such a big part of my life and family there for the big day. Suraj surprised me with an amazing video of them during the Sangeet. It was a beautiful and touching video of them sharing their blessings and doing some dances. It was so emotional for me to watch that and have them virtually present for the wedding!
My cousins from the US also put together an amazing skit for us on Sangeet night. Whenever my cousins have gotten married, it's become a tradition for us to do a skit that showcases how each couple met and makes fun of them a little too! Usually I'm the skit planner and choreographer, but this time they all planned everything themselves! Which must not have been easy during a pandemic and with them all having kids! But it turned out amazing and I could not stop laughing and smiling the entire time! It was the best performance!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to remember the big picture! It is so easy to get wrapped up in the small details and making sure everything is perfect. But try to remember why you are having this wedding in the first place - to celebrate the love you two share. Try to set aside some time at some point during the events to soak it all in and appreciate the love and people you both brought together!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Having my Father passed away a few years ago, it was really important for me to have him and his memory honored at the wedding. I chose to have his picture on the mandap stage so my mom and him could "give me away" together during the ceremony. I also had a mother-daughter dance for my wedding instead of the traditional father-daughter dance.

My loves, this is all for this entry. Keep coming back for more romance!

New Rochelle, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by Jashim Jalal Photography

Good morning my queens! What a beautiful day we have ahead of us, and, as always, it is my pleasure to share with you a new story to be inspired. Our sweethearts, Christine & Jerin, celebrated their lovely union at the VIP Country Club surrounded by their special ones and the gorgeous sun during a perfect summer day. The delightful colors of the decor Stylish Events provided were the perfect contrast for the delicate ones our Maharani chose for her lengha. Her elegant white dress was perfect. I adore it! But my favorite part about her look was the stunning shades Heena Das Beauty applied for her makeup. Christine was glorious! I am sure you won't believe how incredible the couple looked standing together. The traditional attires were just the beginning of a magical night for everyone. Of course, with the joyful music M4U Events brought, the guests couldn't be kept away from the dancefloor. There is no better companion to a happily ever after than a vibrant soundtrack. Now, ladies, I know that minor aspects during one's special day can be overwhelming at times. That's why our bride contacted the professional team from L&B Events to keep everything in check. This fabulous wedding couldn't be possible without them taking care of every feature, giving our lovebirds all the time to enjoy the beauty of their forever. Jashim Jalal Photography's pictures captured all the love and adoration Christine and Jerin have for each other. My wonderful Maharanis, I have a dazzling gallery for you. Go check it out and be enchanted by this phenomenal love story.

Clearwater Beach, FL Indian Wedding by Peter Nguyen Studio

Happy Thursday, my sweet Maharanis! It's another splendid day for another magnificent story, and today's protagonists are Radhika & Akshay. Their enchanting fairytale begins with the bride getting ready to say "I do" during a warm summer day. The couple went all or nothing with the summer theme and celebrated their marriage at the elegant Hilton Clearwater Beach. Just take a minute to imagine the breathtaking color of the sunset while starting a new chapter with the love of your life. Isn't that romantic? Let me tell you about our Maharani's undeniable beauty. She looked divine in a gorgeous red lengha gracefully adorned with exquisite patterns. Radhika's hair and makeup, designed by Makeup by Anita, combined perfectly with her attire. And our Maharani's soulmate, Akshay, looked just as dazzling with a traditional sherwani with beautiful warm colors perfect for the evening. The decor was brought to life by Suhaag Garden Inc, and it was breathtaking, my dears! It had the same gorgeous hues as the newlyweds' garments. They were a match made in heaven. Ladies, everything was picture-perfect, just what every Maharini deserves! The cherry on top of the lovely atmosphere created by the tenderness and happiness of the couple and the guests was the live music courtesy of Sunset String and a lively tone set throughout the celebration by Awaaz Entertainment. The day was filled with precious memories that our couple will cherish forever. The captivating photos taken by the skillful team from Peter Nguyen Studio are sensational. I was speechless when I saw this picturesque gallery, my sweethearts, entirely available for your delight. I am sure you will enjoy it.

Hi Maharanis! We are starting this new day with another marvelous story that will melt your hearts. Today's main characters are Yesha & Neel, who had a phenomenal summer wedding celebrated at the Royal Grand Manor, and just as its name promises, this venue was excellent for a celebration worthy of royalty. Our couple delighted their guests with a mouth-melting cake baked specially for them by Awesomeyo's Kitchen. Ladies, I have to admit the delicate "NY" added on top of the cake was adorable. Everyone had the time of their lives rejoicing with the lovebirds and the terrific ambiance only M4U Events can create. Our couple decided to call these experts to organize and execute their event with outstanding entertainment to have a memorable night. And now, my dears, it's time to talk about how splendid Yesha looked! Our Maharani's fascinating hair and enchanting makeup were done by Looks by Jassi, granting her the glamour and elegance we all dream of for our big day. Her lengha harmonized perfectly with her eyeshadow making her look radiant. The work Henna by Shweta did on our bride's Mehndi art was flawless. It caught everyone's attention! The handsome groom, Neel, looked just as stunning as he did when our Maharani fell in love with him. You can grasp the utter devotion between them in every single picture captured by Ami Video, gifting the newlyweds with a forever memoir of their romance. So, don't wait any longer! My dears, take a moment to check out this impressive gallery; I am sure you will feel inspired.
