Happy Thursday, darlings! Indian fusion weddings have something special that always makes our hearts melt with tenderness and joy, and Seema & Alex's wedding is no exception. Get ready to have a blast because today's fusion wedding packs all the things you love and so much more! We're starting this journey by joining this couple at The One & Only Westmount Country Club, where the ceremony and reception took place. L&B Events conceptualized this event to perfection, while All event Decorators by Jyoti enhanced the experience with heavenly decor. This winning combo created a soothing environment for Seema & Alex to tie the knot. Our lovely couple looked ravishing together, but it was our beautiful Maharani who stole the show! She said, "I do," looking like a princess after being glamorized by 217 Beauty. We love every bit of her traditional and glamorous look!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Even though we found out later we were from the same hometown and had actually attended high school together for 2 years, we met when I was in medical school and he was working for the university I was attending.
I think I knew he was the one when I had to take my medical board exam and a few days before, we had just gotten into a huge fight. Despite not speaking for that time, the day before my exam, he showed up at my place with a packed lunch for me to take to my exam and a plan to take me out so I could relax the evening before. When I realized that no matter what was going on, he could be there for me with exactly what I needed when I needed it most, I had no question he was the one for me.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had a plan to go to Napa Valley, California to celebrate his 30th birthday. We were meeting a few of our friends out there and had a plan to meet at a winery. While we were there for what I thought was his 30th birthday celebration, he pulled me aside saying he needed to "talk" to me about something serious. He took me to this terrace that overlooked the vineyard and instead of having that serious talk, I found myself on the receiving end of a beautiful proposal! After he popped the question, all of our friends, (including my brother and sister-in-law who had surprised me) came running out and celebrated with us!
I had always said I wanted a romantic private proposal but I also wanted our close family and friends to be there so he made the two work flawlessly together!
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.
My now husband and I are of two different religions so I knew we were going to have two ceremonies as that was important to both of us as well as our families. We wanted to do all the main wedding events within a day and even though we knew it was going to be tight, I did not want to extend it past that. Luckily, we are both from the same hometown so the location was pretty easy and after looking at venues in the area, we settled on Westmount Country Club.
Regarding decor, outfits, and hair and makeup, I am not a girly girl and I am relatively simple so what I kept saying to all the vendors, is "simple but elegant!" That was the case with hair and makeup as well as outfits. I love the way royal blue looks on our Indian skin so the color was chosen quickly and we just worked around that.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
So I had a wedding sari, a wedding dress, as well as my reception lehnga. Honestly speaking, my mom picked out my wedding sari and reception lehnga in India because I was unable to go due to COVID, but I was involved via Facetime and made the ultimate decisions. I did not have any restrictions about color, I was open to anything! My mom has always had great taste and she narrowed it down to awesome choices and I could not have been happier with the outfits. My wedding dress I picked out at a local bridal boutique with the help of a few friends! It was great to have the experience of getting both Indian as well as American outfits! It was the best of both worlds.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Though the planning process was mostly stressful, I think I enjoyed working with our coordinators at L&B Events! Lisa, Betsy, and the team were amazing in taking our ideas (no matter how ridiculous they were!) and making them possible! It was great to see that come to life! Oh, and the cake tasting! That was very yummmm. Haha
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We were told multiple times and by multiple people that it was evident that our wedding was planned not only for what was convenient to us but also for our guests. Even though our day was long, people enjoyed it because it was planned with them in mind. Also, we got MANY compliments on the food and DJ!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think when we did our first look at our reception hall before the guests entered. For me, that was when it all hit me that this was our wedding reception and that all those guests in the neighboring room at cocktail hour were here for us, to celebrate our love. It truly made me feel special in a way I never thought possible. It was a moment I will never forget.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The biggest piece of advice I have given to brides planning their weddings since I went through the process is yes it is a big day and yes you want it to be perfect, but just remember why you are doing it. Remember to take moments through the planning process to be with your person and enjoy your relationship outside of talking about wedding planning. I think it was so easy to get lost in all the details and specifics but the important thing is what comes after the wedding day, the marriage.

And that's a wrap for today, my lovely dears. I'll hope to see you again for the next grand romance!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him through mutual friends in 2010. We became really good friends through high school and then started dating in college. I knew he was "the one" immediately once we started dating.
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 originally planned our wedding in Boston since this is where our love story began however covid had other plans for us. Although looking back now I am glad things turned out the way they did because it ended up being a smaller destination wedding with all of our closest friends and families present. However, given the pandemic, our planning process was quite stressful. After postponing the initial 2020 wedding to 2021 we had to wait 3-4 months before the wedding date to finalize the location due to the ongoing fluctuation gathering restrictions. Luckily all our vendors, other than the venue remained the same and we had an excellent team.  Picking the venue was harder. We cut down our guests by more than half and made a list of people who we knew had to be there. We then started to reach out to all the venues on the east coast, starting from Maine all the way down to Florida that were available during our already decided new wedding date July 25 2021, and could accommodate our guest count. We also constantly checked the gathering restrictions for each state and regularly used this as a major factor in helping us decide our venue. Ultimately, this is how we came to a decision on keeping our wedding in Florida given it was the least restrictive. Then we wanted to select a venue that could feel more like a destination wedding and steered away from Orlando because my husband's sister also went through a similar process as us and got married a few months prior to us in Orlando. Then ultimately we narrowed down 2 venues we loved on paper in Cape Coral and made a day trip with both our parents to Cape Coral to see both venues and loved the overall package of Westin Cape Coral more.
Selecting our other vendors was the easiest part. We loved our entire team and would recommend them to anyone. In particular, I loved my photo/video team due to their constant communication with me, even a year after the wedding. In terms of decor, we did have an overall royal theme vision for the wedding day and wanted to use all red flowers knowing I will not be wearing the traditional red color to bring that color out. For the other events, we based the decor and changed them after picking our wedding outfits.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I did not want to wear red on my wedding day and wanted to wear all gold/champagne, which was something I had never seen before. Similarly, I wanted to incorporate the traditional red color of an Indian bride somehow and decided it would be the perfect bold and classy look for a reception. I did not have any color restrictions for my Garba/sangeet and just knew I wanted to wear a different color to each wedding event. This made it easy when wedding shopping. I picked all 3 of my main wedding outfits on the second day of shopping.  Once I selected this, it did make picking my Haldi, Mehndi, and Grah Shanti a little harder since I had already picked many of the more traditional colors. However, all my outfits were from designers based in Delhi India.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was definitely doing our wedding photo shoot with our photo/video team in Iceland. Wedding shopping in India was also fun since we were able to go for 1 month and we had enough time to explore and enjoy good food.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved the overall hospitality throughout the entire wedding weekend. For example, we received multiple comments about the myriad of delicious food options available throughout the day (breakfast, lunch, dinner).
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The overall weekend was very special, but one moment I still can remember is the Haldi event. The Haldi was the first combined wedding event (we each had our own mehndi and grah shanties locally in Boston). During this, when we first came together and our family was applying the paste on us it finally hit me that this was finally all happening. Also, It had a vision of wanting to play Holi at Haldi and did not know if everyone will actually play but it was really fun to see everyone get into it and have a great time.
Another special moment I constantly replay is the mangalsutra and sindoor moment. Being a huge Bollywood fan, this was something I had always thought about, and having my own moment with the man I loved was very special.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It is important to go over the logistics of the overall wedding vision with before you start planning with your partner and any other family members involved. Also, keep the people involved in planning small and the only people you trust so you are not getting confused. Most importantly it is important to know you will never please everyone, somebody may not like something about the way you did something or who you invite so ultimately you need to remember who it is that is important to you and just worry about those individuals. For example, for me, my husband and I knew we just wanted to make sure, our parent's wishes were respected.
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We had custom hotel key cards with our photos on them, which was something I had never seen done before and was a new idea we wanted to incorporate. We did a Holi-themed Haldi which was unique and a lot of fun. We had a live firework show at the end of our raas&garba night as a finale before the wedding day. We also had a live painter present during our wedding ceremony and now have the physical painting with us in our bedroom.

Maharanis, that is all for today! Come back tomorrow for more romantic stories and incredible tips!
