Orlando, FL Indian Wedding by Castaldo Studios

Listen up, Maharanis! Get ready to be indulged with some major and fresh wedding inspiration. Acclaimed Castaldo Studios had the honor to portrait Reshma and Roshan during their wedding festivities in Orlando, Florida and the images are just impeccable. So make sure to get comfortable for what's coming up next. Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress usually hosts manificent events, and this time this luxury venue set the scene for the Indian wedding sangeet and ceremony of this cute pair. The special days were filled with joy, happiness, and incredible details. Eventrics Weddings ensured that the intense days ran smoothly and pleasantly, orchestrating the elaborate celebrations to perfection. The planning crew teamed with NJP Events, who came up with a covetable decor theme that you will adore. Reshma's bridal apparel was stunning! No detail was overlooked when it came to her look. Style By Susmita was in charge of her hair and makeup, while Designs by Varsha did the beautiful paisleys that decked her hands. She glowed during the ceremony in a white and gold majestic lehenga and elevated the look with a red flowy dupatta. I dore how Roshan paired with his Maharani, opting for a white sherwani suit, and completed the elegant trosseau with a green emerald velvet scarf. He completely nailed it and resembled a Bollywood groom! Once the ceremony was over, guests rushed to one of the most unique venues in Central Florida, The Sun 'n Fun Aerospace Campus! This particular space was transformed into a celebratory setting with magical Gobo lighting, a regal sweetheart table, and tons of white florals. Platinum-toned silvers and blue shades added shimmery and brought to life the entire decor. Reshma and Roshan decided to go with Volcanik Entertainment LLC, who performed the best Bollywood tunes for the crowd and picked Mast Masala Caterers to create the traditional dishes that were served during the night. For their last event, the newlyweds look like a million dollars. They both flaunted exquisite designs. Roshan slipped into a white dinner jacket while Maharani Reshma's long sleek hair blended so well with her platinum lehenga choli set. Such a stylish duo. Behold the wedding days of these two in our complete gallery and get inspired by their love and bliss. Big Thanks to Castaldo Studios for such great images!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ankur on the Bumble dating app. I knew he was the one when he agreed to go see Aladdin the musical with me.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The proposal was a COMPLETE surprise!!! We were traveling to Spain to visit my sister and her family. My sister and her family were showing us around and we went to Parque del Retiro. We were walking around and Ankur led me to a gazebo which was decorated with flowers! Next thing I know he was down on one knee proposing!!!!

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.
Social media was very helpful while planning for my wedding during the pandemic. I used IG pages and facebook to contact vendors for hair/makeup, outfits, decor, and mendhi. Everyone was very helpful and understanding due to the pandemic.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted a traditional red bridal lengha. I wasn't able to go to India and my mom and aunt were very helpful. They knew I wanted a red bridal lengha. Whatapp video calls were very helpful.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was planning on what I wanted for my bridal mendhi. I wanted something that represents both Ankur and I. Neha Assar did an amazing job with my bridal mendhi and working with her was a great experience!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests enjoyed the intimate wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that replays in my head how my family and extended family worked together to make my wedding happen. Everyone played a significant role.

Maharanis is so good to bring you another pre-pandemic wedding story. Sheena and Julio are a beautiful Indian Venezuelan couple that will overflow your screen with color and joy. These Californian lovebirds celebrated several auspicious pre-wedding events at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas. Both, the groom and bride's family and friends gathered at this exclusive resort to mingle and inaugurate the celebrations with a Sangeet night. Flamenco Fever Dallas entertained the guests while Jay Bharat indulged them with Indian dishes; the Sangeet was the perfect occasion to introduce the groom's side to the rich Indian cuisine and vibrant traditions. Brilliant! To honor Maharani Sheena's background, an enchanting Hindu ceremony was held in the vast gardens of Omni Rancho Las Palmas and turned out just spectacular. All the grandeur of Indian weddings' rituals were displayed under an austere yet charming draped mandap that Artisan Events created with love for the duo. Events by C helped bring come to life the wedding concept planning with meticulous organization and attention to detail every aspect of the union. The fairy godmother of brides, Dolled up by Lulu showed off her talent, creating stunning hair and makeup for Sheena that lasted from the first event to her last dance. Our today's bride completed her look with a splendid Manshaa Manshaa The Designer Studio's lehenga and coordinated colors with her dapper groom. I love how flawlessly Julio embraced his new culture and debuted as the ultimate Raja. That's great!  Wahh World Fusion Band created a sophisticated and jazzy environment for the reception while Natraj Restaurants & Catering provided a top-notch dinner for the newlyweds' big night.

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.
First and foremost we kept the beautiful words of Maya Angelou in mind as we adapted the motto "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." Likewise, we chose our venue and vendors with the same consciousness in mind. And we cannot sing enough praises for all the beautiful people involved in making this event a success. Did I mention, our wedding was March 14, 2020? Just imagine what was going through the minds of all our guests and dedicated vendors as the world was rapidly shutting down around us all.

Julio and I area all about planning. The first decision we made was to hire a wedding planner with experience with Indian Weddings. We knew this would be the seed to grow the roots that would support everything that was to come in planning the multiple day event, and that really paid off when we were faced with a global pandemic.

Chandani and her team at Events by C were absolute rockstars. Obsessed with spreadsheets (we love that), resourceful, graceful, calm, patient, and were pivotal in making everything a success. They took such good care of us and our families that they felt like family themselves. At any moment that something was needed before and during the events, they were always within arm's reach and made sure things happened straight away. Carly McGarry was an absolute gem of a Wedding Venue Coordinator at Omni Rancho Las Palmas and quickly became part of that dream team. We can not say enough about the kindness, flexibility, time and care she gave us. Neither of us would ever have imagined choosing a golf course as a venue, we made the decision based on Carly's hospitality, convenience for guests and experience overall that we'd be able to provide. Again, the best decision ever when we had to made last minute decisions and changes for safety protocols against many unknowns that were to come due to the pandemic. Between Events By C and Carly, they made it all look so easy and we could not be more grateful.

Archana at Manshaa & Zevara by Archana quickly became a dear friend. She put so much care into our wedding outfits, every little piece has a story and every material of the highest quality. What an amazing talent. Neha Assar's skills need no introduction and no words can describe, she puts so much care and deep meaning into every inch. She is also the most gentle kind person you could work with and she is also a friend we hold close to our hearts. Lulu and her team were absolutely amazing. There is no doubt they are the absolute best for hair and make-up, but a little fun fact is when Lulu was dolling me up was the only moment I personally felt overwhelmed by the pandemic. Lulu handled the situation like a boss and got me back on track to enjoy everything. We're so grateful to her and her team.

Food by Natraj was incredible, took me back to the best restaurants in India and hands down the most seamless coordination with the venue. Jay Bharat is our regular go to and they never disappoint. Alexander at Amara Cafe provided incredibly delicious treats and kind service for our Venezuelan catering in conjunction with the very talented Omni Chef who wowed us with is Venezuelan dishes. Olive Wood Pizza was very easy to work with and was absolutely delicious. All of our vendors were truly amazing for our Indian Venezuelan mix from the Flamenco Dancers, Indian World Jazz Band, Indian DJ, KG Henna, local Artisan Decor, Rahul Rana Photography and Sunbeat Films. It was truly our coordinators and all our vendors who made it a success.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We met with Archana and shared our idea of incorporating my Mom's wedding Sari into a modern, light, modest yet regal Rajput inspired design. We loved that she knows how to avoid all the harsh chemicals and has a more sustainable approach to her process. All of the magic is credit to Archana. Some say I was a funny bride, I didn't understand the investment of a wedding outfit that was only to be worn once and then stowed away for eternity. I shared that thought with Archana and was amazed she completely understood and actually agreed with me. She proposed the idea of making the outfit in layers, so I could use each layer individually for years to come, and I already have :)

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Making the invitations and all the design elements together with Julio. As Visual Designers, we rarely get to create projects with 100% our vision in mind.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Julio can be known to be on the quieter side at times, but what people might not know is that he is a Gemini. I was completely caught off-guard when the "other Julio" walked onto the stage at the reception and sang in front of everyone.

Sparta, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Ishan Fotografi

Good morning, Maharanis! It's Tuesday and we'll seize this beautiful day unveiling the inspiring fusion wedding of Samantha & Rohan. This pair put together the most charming covid-friendly celebration at The Brick House Farm in Sparta, NJ. This colonial home and historical landmark created a magical environment to accommodate a guest list that ranged around only 50 guests. The lovebirds planned an intimate outdoor ceremony where they exchanged vows and incorporated some significant elements of a traditional Indian wedding. I'm swooning over this tiny ceremony that was indeed a big celebration of love! For this event, Maharani Sam flaunted a beautiful lehenga choli combined with a red chiffon dupatta that added the perfect touch of color to her bridal trousseau. To complete the look, Samantha's sister created a fresh-natural look that accentuated her natural beauty and that also made her flaunt her reception gown. A big shout to the couple's family, as they helped with the big day's charming decor. Thank heaven for family! The warm day continued with a small reception that overflowed with pure love, and where all guests could celebrate with great food especially cooked by The Brick House Farm's chefs. Ishan Fotografi beautifully captured the real essence of the day and unforgettable emotions documenting every detail. Let's take a closer at this gorgeous fusion bash in our full gallery, shall we!?
