Orlando, FL Indian Wedding by Asaad Images

Today's feature, ladies, totally has "it". The quintessential Indian wedding celebration is in full mode with this one and of course, we had to share all the glam and glitter with you all. Orlando was our place of destination for Sibani & Apas' wedding vision and let me tell you, the gala was just something else. Lucky for us, our friends from Asaad Images captured with their lenses everything that went on, going from the lavish baraat with the incredible Band Bajha Entertainment to the exclusive reception at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek, we have all of it here! You, dolls, know we absolutely love everything saree related. It is just so incredible to witness all the different styles that our brides chose and this fashion ensemble left me speechless. The bride definitely showcased a finesse like no other and that also thanks to the impeccable work from A Touch Of Fierce! As we will see, it was total bliss. We are very excited about this gallery, so don't miss it! Time to celebrate India style! See you by the aisle!

Championsgate, FL Indian Wedding by Amita S Photographer

You guessed correctly, dolls, part two of Richa & Nikesh's incredibly heartwarming nuptials is here and we are absolutely loving it and ready to share it with you! After a ceremony for the ages, with all the right ingredients, it was time to move to the reception hall of The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate for some party dose. Our now newlyweds recruited the talent of Volcanik Entertainment to live up the dance floor with all our favorite Bollywood tunes, and as we will see, there was not a single person not dancing! So much fun going on! When you are having lots of it, there is a risk of losing some glam in your hair or makeup. Lucky for our Maharani Richa, that wasn't a problem. Michele Renee The Studio truly brought her A-Game with this glamorous Indian bride style and you, ladies, can't miss it! Ready for more? Head down to our gallery of today for details.

Stevensville, MD Indian Fusion Wedding by Ishan Fotografi

Happy Tuesday loves! There is something so special about fusion weddings we all love so much, don't you think? Today we indulge your fusion wedding inspiration wishes unveiling the charming union of Tulsi & Zack! The fabulous couple decided to join their lives amidst the magical wonders of Kent Island in Maryland, where the brilliant lens of Ishan Fotografi documented this fabulous fusion spree. The talented photo team prepared an idyllic outdoor photo shoot for the newlyweds, who were ready to flaunt their best style for this memorable photo session! Maharani Tulsi looked absolutely stunning in a dreamy Kalki Fashion's hot pink lengha which she completed with a dazzling jewelry set. Color Me Rouge finished off the bridal look with a bold lip color and a beautiful bun! The dashing groom, Zack embraced his new culture and contrasted the bride's bridal outfit with an elegant soft pink Sherwani suit and turban. The ceremony took place in the green lawns of the historic Kent Manor Inn where the folks from MM Celebrations cleverly transformed a gazebo into a sweet floral and draped mandap for the Hindu marriage. A round of applause for Details Made Simple for coordinating the union of this cute duo!  Go to our complete gallery and check more details of this heartwarming wedding.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Zack and I had known each other for a couple of years as co-workers. We exchanged a few words in the kitchen pantry and crossed paths every now and then. However, we never really had a conversation until one of our work happy hours (which I wasn't even planning to attend...but I'm glad I did). After a few hours of talking and joking around, I knew that he was going to be someone special.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was a random Saturday in December - I had just run my first 5k with Zack; we attended one of my cousin's 1st birthday parties, and we had made plans to go watch the new Star Wars movie that had just come out. After the movie, Zack convinced me to cross the street and stop by the fountain at Lincoln Center, one of our popular meetup spots. It was cold and late and I was irritated that Zack was so insistent ongoing. After some convincing, I gave in and climbed the steps towards the fountain eventually turning around to see Zack down on one knee. Honestly, I had no idea what was going on and probably told him to get up about half a dozen times. It then took me about 4 minutes (apparently the longest 4 minutes of Zack's life) to process what was happening and eventually say YES! As someone who is very organized and loves to plan, I was shocked that he was able to surprise me and am so glad it happened at one of our favorite spots in the city.
 
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 loved the wedding planning process. I am a naturally organized person so it was super fun for me. I had tons of Pinterest boards, saved albums on my phone, etc. I knew I wanted to blend a rustic theme into a traditional Hindu ceremony and took all the inspo I could get to make it come to life. My vendors were all so amazing and are super talented - they're the reason our wedding was so perfect and how our vision came to life so flawlessly!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted something traditional but didn't want to do red. I searched all over Mumbai looking for a pastel-colored wedding lengha (I really wanted something light that would look nice against the greenery during my outdoor wedding). Kalki was the first store I went into and I loved so many of their outfits (especially the one I ended up picking) but I didn't want to settle on the first store or on a hot pink lengha when I really wanted something pastel. No matter which stores I went into, my mind always came back to Kalki. I ended up back in the store, tried on the hot pink lengha and fell in love! There was no going back to the pastel search - hot pink was for me!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Getting to plan with so many of my loved ones and seeing them get so excited about everything! We all had something so exciting to look forward to.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
How we blended together traditions from both sides and how it really was about the US. Many of my guests could tell how special the entire weekend was and how it was so "Tulsi & Zack," which made us feel so great (especially when South Asian weddings can very quickly not be about the bride & groom). We had a traditional Hindu wedding but incorporated a Pittsburgh cookie table (which is a tradition where my husband is from). 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance! The crowd went nuts and it was so great to see Zack absolutely kill it! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy EVERY minute of your wedding! It goes by incredibly fast. I know often times the stress gets to you leading up to the big day and you can't wait for it to be over, but just take a moment to reflect on the entire journey and remember why it's all so important. I would also recommend carrying that through the entire wedding weekend. It's very easy to get swept up in the motions and stick to a schedule...but don't forget to pause and take in the moment. If there is something you really wanted to do or see or set up in a particular way, don't forget to ENJOY the moment! I particularly loved seeing my guests faces at various points throughout the weekend and it just filled my heart up with so much love and happiness.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We didn't end up doing a cake and did a cookie table instead! It's a tradition based out of Pittsburgh where my husband's family is from. About 80 dozen cookies were baked by family/friends and the remaining 100 dozen came from a bakery. We had over 40 different types of cookies and even had little decorated bags so our guests could take cookies to go!
 
I wore my mangalsutra to my reception with my white wedding dress - blended together an Indian tradition with an American one. My mangalsutra was made in Mumbai - if you look closely enough at the photos you can see that it's more of a modern design (gold/silver chain, a diamond in the middle with 2 black beads on each end) vs a more traditional look. I wanted something like this so I could wear my mangalsutra every day (esp to work)!
