Rockville, MD Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

After the gorgeous ceremony happened, and Raevathi & Akhil united their lives for eternity, it was time to celebrate with all the Raja and Maharani style and flair. The Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center was their venue of choice and to jazz things up, the ravishing beats of AmpliFIRE Entertainment, of course! The guests were about to have the time of their lives with this bash! We know that hospitality with their loved ones is a strong Indian characteristic, and these two lovebirds did not disappoint! So amazing! To top it all, the sweet pastry wonders of The Classic Bakery & Cafe gave that extra rush of sugar impulse to keep on lighting up the dancefloor! Seriously, ladies, you can't miss this beautiful gala! More details on today's gallery thanks to Photographick Studios!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Akhil and I met in our first class on our first day of school freshman year at college (UMD College Park). We ended up becoming good friends and started dating towards the end of that year, and got married almost 10 years since we met! I can't say there was an exact moment, but I'm glad we both eventually felt that each other was "the one"!

 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Akhil planned a trip to the National Arboretum, one of my favorite places around DC, and proposed in a beautiful spot by a gazebo overlooking a pond. After he proposed, we went out for dinner in DC to celebrate, and Akhil surprised me by inviting all our friends and family to celebrate - it was perfect!

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 really wanted a traditional wedding and it was important to me to incorporate both Tamil (my family) and Telugu (Akhil's family) traditions.  Most of the planning was around the ceremony and making sure the long ceremony went smoothly.  For the morning - decor, outfits, hair and makeup - I wanted to keep things pretty traditional, and for the reception, I wanted to keep it clean and simple.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I love neutral colors and was looking for champagnes and golds, and ended up finding the perfect gown (after several trips around Mumbai and Bangalore with my family in India).

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning some of the small details - I was really excited for my mehndi and requested my artist (@naseemhenna) to draw Bharatanatyam dancers (since I've been learning since I was 8) and it turned out so great.  I had also given a lot of thought to my outfits and hair/makeup so it was fun scrolling through Pinterest for ideas, and I think everything came out great in the end!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think guests liked all the traditions we had in the wedding from the baraat to the swing ceremony to the different games we played on the mandap. Of course, all the food was also great, and the playlist at the sangeet and reception were amazing!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Akhil completely surprised me by getting up and joining my cousins dance for the last song - I had planned out almost every detail of the whole wedding so I was so shocked that he kept that secret.  Plus he did such a good job!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Even if the planning process feels like a lot, the end result will be amazing and so much fun!

 

Amazing wasn't it? More every day, stick with us!

Rockville, MD Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

It's Wednesday, and in order to keep those energies up and running, we have Raevathi & Akhil's wedding celebration coming to us from Maryland. I am so blown away by the fabric of Maharani Raevathi's saree! The orange sherbet wonder she chose for the main ceremony is everything you want out of a saree. Style, color, elegance, you name it, the attire has it all! The quintessential Indian wedding celebration started with the Baraat, thanks to Olde Towne Carriages. Raja Akhil was looking at his best to pick up his Indian princess for the ceremony, and as we will see in today's picture gallery thanks to our friends from Photographick Studios, glamour was everywhere. When and Indian couple ties the knot, everyone knows it! So many classic moments that you can't miss, ladies! So stay with us one more time to witness everything that went on at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center.

Phoenix, AZ Indian Wedding by Ushna Khan Photography

Welcome back, beautiful ones! This past New Year's Eve celebration was definitely one to remember for eternity for these two lovebirds. As the entire world welcomed the new year, Akila & Amit also welcomed their new life together! What more can you ask for? So romantic! After the outdoor ceremony, it was time for the cocktail hour and of course, Maharani Akila just stole the show. Have you ever seen such a beautiful gown? It's been a while since our jaws have dropped, and with this South Indian beauty, that was exactly the case. That, plus her gorgeous Mehndi design done by the incredible Henna by Purvi, gave her an unexpected flair. The team from Ushna Khan Photography definitely rank high in my books because of their amazing talent with the lenses, proof of that is here, in our complete gallery of today. So, what are you waiting, dolls, this celebration is something else! Don't miss it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Amit when he was in pharmacy school and I was in undergrad at the University of Arizona. We had a lot of the same friends, yet we somehow never actually managed to hang out! Four years later, we both happened to attend the wedding of one our close mutual friends and we were sat at tables right next to each other. When they started serving cake, I grabbed two pieces (because DUH!) and he came over to me, grabbed my second piece of cake and started eating it (bold move but it worked!). The rest as they say, is history :) I knew he was "the one" when I saw how important his family was to him, and how that carried over into his relationship with my family. We share so many of the same core values, and although our personalities are pretty different, it’s those values that keep us anchored to each other.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Amit popped the question on November 3rd, 2017. We had been dating for a little over two years at that point and my parents were visiting from India at the time. Amit's sister-in-law, Ruchi texted me earlier during the week letting me know she was throwing a birthday dinner for Amit's brother at the Phoenician Resort (the same place where we officially began our relationship) that Friday. Little did I know, that was a total lie and Amit had orchestrated the entire thing. He picked me up from my apartment and took me to the resort. We walked down to a private lawn and when I turned the corner there was a giant waterfall with a bridge overflowing water, decorated with rose petals and candles, a private table with champagne and a heart made of rose petals on the lawn. I immediately froze! I was in complete disbelief and the only way I can describe it is: I felt like I was floating. He led me out to the lawn, into the middle of the heart, pulled out a speaker and played our favorite song. He got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife! After a romantic dinner (and maybe a little too much champagne) we went back to his condo where he had gathered all of our family and friends to surprise me and celebrate with us all 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.
We took a couple months to let everything soak in and enjoy being engaged without the stress of planning for a little while (which if you can do, I highly recommend!). I was also really lucky because Amit actually did SO much of the planning so he was a huge help. We started by picking our venue, it was really important to both of us that the place spoke to us and resonated with who we both are and the theme we wanted to stick to. We also planned the whole wedding on our own-which was great because that meant every aspect of the wedding had a major piece of us incorporated into it. Once the venue was picked we focused on all our other vendors. A lot of our friends had gotten married a year or two before, so they were a big help in terms of vendor recommendations. We looked at a lot of online reviews and talked to people who had worked with some of our vendors before to make sure everything was a good fit. I will say your relationships with your vendors is SO important, particularly if you don't hire a planner until closer to the wedding day. Our overall experience with all our vendors was fantastic. Special shout out to Skypoint Productions (video), Ushna Khan Photography, Hasan from Kismet Events (decor), Prince (Desi Junction DJs) and Mehul from Jhakaas Entertainment (production) for their incredible work! We worked with so many great people who were so supportive and went above and beyond to help us ensure our day was exactly what we wanted it to be.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We flew to India the summer before our wedding (during monsoon season might I add) to do all of our shopping. We spent a week in Mumbai and a week in Bangalore picking outfits, jewelry, etc. I knew I wanted to stick to traditional colors and I was definitely influenced by a lot of Indian designers (i.e Sabyasachi and Falguni Shane Peacock). Researching their collections online helped me narrow down my choices for each event. One piece of advice I do have for brides, is that shopping for outfits can be really overwhelming-especially if you're like me and absolutely cannot make quick decisions. It helps to have a general idea of what you want, but keep an open mind because you never know what you'll actually end up finding and loving!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was DEFINITELY the little touches. It was a way for Amit and I to make our wedding a unique experience and to add our own flare to it. We wanted every part of our wedding to be true to who we are and to make sure that really came through to all our guests.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We really just wanted everyone to enjoy themselves all weekend and we wanted it to be a giant party celebrating our love with the people who matter most to us. The two main things we always hear from people is how much they loved our vows to each other during the ceremony, as well as how much love they felt all weekend, and how much they appreciated all the details and planning we put into our wedding. These were the little things Amit and I spent a lot of time thinking about and enjoyed doing the most. I'm just really glad it resonated with everyone who was there!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
We got married on New Year’s Eve and it ended up being an overcast day with a few showers here and there. Despite the unexpected weather, the cloudy skies and cold somehow made the afternoon so much more romantic. The particular memory that always replays in my mind is when I was walking down the aisle with my parents I looked up at Amit who was getting emotional and choked up. I was suddenly so overwhelmed by love and I felt like there was no one else in the world but me and him. It was the happiest day of our lives :)
 
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.
We wanted the decor for our sangeet to be pretty colorful and lively so our decorator put up plenty of colorful backdrops for Mehendi artists and dance performances, as well as for various food stations. The venue we chose was a re-furbished fruit warehouse in downtown Phoenix. We loved the industrial look it had so we wanted to leave that untouched as much as possible. We had yard games, beer pong and a dosa station in the open-air courtyard which provided a free-flowing outdoor/indoor vibe for the event. Amit and I both love to dance so we had a lot of dance performances during our sangeet from cousins, bridesmaids and groomsmen, as well as some Garba/dandiya and an open dance floor at the end. Amit’s brother Ankur is known amongst our friend group as the music master and he did an amazing job DJ’ing for the night! For our reception, we wanted a really elegant theme. We wanted our guests to feel like they were being transported into a whimsical garden or forest and our decor team really delivered! Kismet Events absolutely brought our vision to life with blooms, candles, and greens at every table with a giant candle wall behind our stage. The focal point of the room was the massive 40’ by 40’ ceiling install consisting of greens, wisteria, flowers and chandeliers over the large white, monogrammed dance floor. We added a lot of our own details throughout the weekend as well. We custom made our welcome bags with items that represented us and our relationship, we placed snacks on our ceremony chairs, macaroons on all our chargers, passed out coconut water served in coconuts and handed out shawls that my mom had hand beaded all summer. With an NYE reception we knew we wanted to have a pretty epic countdown to close out the weekend’s festivities. The hotel passed out champagne flutes to all of our guests and Amit and I got on stage with huge confetti guns in hand to lead the countdown. As the clock struck midnight, we had CO2 cannons, indoor sparklers, and confetti all go off simultaneously—it was an incredible way to ring in the new year with all of our family and friends.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't stress out about things that are not in your control. It took me a while to come to terms with this, but it’s true! It takes so much hard work to plan a wedding and you put so much of yourself into it that it can be disappointing when not EVERYTHING goes exactly according to plan. Just remember, things are bound to go wrong but there are SO many things that will go right and be perfect. Your guests will have an amazing time no matter what, and at the end of the day it’s not about your venue or your vendors or your outfits. It’s about you and your husband/wife and celebrating your love for each other. It was truly so heartwarming the amount of love and joy we felt from all those who were there. Enjoy your day and remember to have a great time no matter what :)
 

More to come, tomorrow ladies!

Phoenix, AZ Indian Wedding by Ushna Khan Photography

Hey there, dolls! Weddings keep on coming, they never stop, so why should we? This time around, we have a series of celebrations that just took my breath away. This enchanting South Indian bride tied the knot with her Gujarati prince and as you can probably expect, the festivities were absolutely unique and grand. This lovely couple wanted to pay homage to both of their backgrounds so they had a Gujarati ceremony in Phoenix and then a South Indian ceremony in Bangalore, India. So romantic indeed! Our super talented friends from Kismet Event Design are a well-known team in the wedding community, so their planning and design skills were absolutely shining for this gala. Ladies, we know for a fact that Maharani Akila's style is just going to dazzle your senses, so get ready for today's gallery thanks to the amazing visual talent from Ushna Khan Photography.

Cambridge, MD South Indian Wedding by Photographick Studios

Welcome back, dolls! After a gorgeous ceremony that united Varsha & Dhruv's lives for eternity, it was time to celebrate the milestone big time!  Our newlyweds knew they wanted the absolute best for their guests for the reception and that was indeed the case. The culinary wonders of Diya Bistro left them totally speechless, I tell you that, ready for all the dancing! Maharani Varsha changed attires and her night ensemble? Well, let's just say that Raja Dhruv's jaw was dropping! The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay was vibing with these two for sure. I am totally loving the soft tones chosen for the decoration of the gala, so romantic and elegant at the same time! Kudos to the team from Imperial Decor! Seriously, ladies, you can't miss this full gallery that comes to us thanks to the delightful visual skills of Photographick Studios! Let's get to it!
