Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Fine Art Productions

Welcome back to your Indian wedding inspiration corner, ladies! This time around, we head down to busy New Jersey for a gorgeous gala that united Madhuri & Denish's lives for eternity. The lavish couple went the extra mile with their vision of grandeur, and as we will see, it was totally magical. The Marigold, beautifully decorated by Nirali Decor, was looking at its very best for the ceremony and of course, it had to be just like that. We know that Indian couples always want the ultimate quality for their bashes and this one was no exception. So amazing! Weddings can also get hectic, lucky for our couple, there was nothing to worry about. When you have the team from Chandai Events assisting you with such an important task, peace of mind is assured! So, ladies, you can't miss today's gallery brought to us by Fine Art Productions, some serious style going on! Shall we take a look?

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Denish and I met on a dating app called Dil Mil on August 1, 2017. The day I introduced Denish to my family is the day I knew he was the one.  Every girl wants someone who is romantic, caring, intelligent, passionate, trustworthy and loyal. When Denish treated my family like his own and that's the one quality along with all others made me realize he was the one. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
After 10 months of dating, we planned a trip to Jamaica. Jamaica will always have a special place in our hearts because that's where Denish asked me to marry him on May 5th, 2018, while having a candlelight dinner (with our very own custom made menu) looking at the beautiful Caribbean Ocean. We never thought we would become each other's world in such a short time frame.
 
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.
Denish was the Bridezilla in planning our wedding or should I say Groomzilla.  Since the wedding was in NJ and I'm from Massachusetts, Denish already knew most of the vendors.  Denish was definitely more involved in planning our wedding than any other Groom I know.  He would contact the vendors and set up the appointments which made the process easier.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I got a lot of my inspiration from Instagram by following a designer name, Annus Creation.  I knew I didn't want the traditional red wedding dress.  I ended up personalizing my wedding dress which was white and pink with elephants engraved( I am obsessed with Elephants). I love how modern and elegant my dress looked.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was definitely picking the food caterer.  Going for food tasting with the whole family was fun.  Usually, the Bride and the Groom do not get to enjoy the food on the day of the wedding so we wanted to make sure we enjoyed the food tasting.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests absolutely loved our Wedding Reception Decor, the wedding cake topper, and the live painting during the Ceremony.
Guests also loved the food during the ceremony and the Reception provided by Chand Palace.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our First look was a really special moment at our wedding because I saw tears in Denish's eyes as soon as he first saw me. 
 
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.
The weekend before our wedding, we had Sangeet (Garba) night in Massachusetts at the ISSO Swaminarayan Temple.  Denish's friends and family all came to Garba from NJ.  It was a great night where all the guests really enjoyed the food, music, and dancing.  My mom and my aunts performed a special dance for us. 
 
I also had a Mehendi night with all my family and friends. I booked Manisha from Henna Cafe to do my bridal Henna. I decided to incorporate the NY Yankees symbol and the Red sox symbol to my mehndi design with both city skylines since Denish is a NY Yankee fan and I'm a Boston Red Sox fan, The Mehendi came out beautiful and all my guest thought it was very unique.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Even though Wedding Planning is Stressful, try to enjoy the process.  Believe it or not, you will miss the planning after the wedding is over.  Enjoy the festivities and make sure you have some alone time to enjoy it with your significant other on the wedding day. The one thing to remember is if something goes wrong don't stress; no one knows the details of your wedding but you and your significant other.

 

Stay with us for the second installment, more to come!

Elmhurst, IL Indian Wedding by Niraj Gandhi Photography

After the gorgeous ceremony came to an end and Megha & Anand finally tied the knot, it was time to head down to the reception hall of the Waterford Banquet & Conference Center for a party for the ages. For this occasion, our gorgeous bride rocked a teal and fuschia saree that totally caught me off guard. I am so in loved with the mix of those colors so much, I can quickly see them become a thing! So amazing! And what about the person who swept our Maharani off her feet? The groom was totally beaming wearing this royal blue and black tux that for sure explained why the bride gave him the "yes"! So, ladies, we know that you were left wanting for more so here you have it! Head down to part two of the gallery thanks to Niraj Gandhi Photography and get inspired!

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 got a lot of inspiration from Instagram - including decor, outfits, hair/makeup, even the bridal bouquet! We then found vendors through websites such as Maharani Weddings' Platinum Guide and Instagram itself. By looking through the vendors' portfolios, we were able to decide which vendors matched our style and could create what we envisioned. We kept our parents very involved in areas such as the invitations, venue, and caterers and then made our own decisions as a couple regarding decor, photography, etc. to match our personal style. This also helped keep everyone in their own lanes!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I didn't want to go to India for wedding shopping and that I could find my outfits locally. A couple of days after I got engaged, my mom and I went to the local boutique a few minutes from my house just to see what the latest trends were. As we were flipping through the racks, I saw the most beautiful Cinderella blue lehenga with contrasting fuchsia embroidery and borders. It was a color combination I hadn't seen before and just had to try it on! As soon as I put on the lehenga and stepped out of the dressing room, I knew it was the one! Between the colors, design, fit, and subtle sparkle, this was definitely the lehenga for me. We decided this would be the perfect reception outfit.
 
My wedding lehenga, however, was not as easy to find! After looking through all of the online shopping websites I knew, there wasn't anything that caught my eye. I spent hours looking through Instagram for inspiration, and all of the red lehengas began to look very similar. I began to see more pastel-colored wedding lehengas and was drawn to the lighter colors. It dawned on me that the lehengas I loved the most were ivory with touches of pastel.
 
My next step was to look at lehengas by different designers to see if there were any designs I liked and could customize in the colors I wanted. This is when I came across a lehenga by Suruchi Parakh Couture, a Surat-based designer who was recommended to me by my cousin. The lehenga, which originally came in a dark pink color, had a heavily embroidered blouse and peacocks all around the skirt. The design was different and refreshing. I reached out to Suruchi and explained to her my idea of customizing the outfit in pastel colors. She quickly sent over a sketch and it was exactly what I had in mind. Suruchi was just as excited as I was to create this design in a trendy new color palette! Over the next several months, Suruchi and I kept in touch to discuss details and she would provide updates with pictures. Finally, the lehenga was completed and arrived at my house. I was so happy that Suruchi was able to see my vision and bring it to life! The lehenga together with the veil, jewelry, mehendi, hair, and makeup was exactly how I envisioned myself as a bride.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
For me, the most enjoyable part of the planning process was designing the mandap! We gave the mandap a lot of importance because it is the focal point of the wedding. I wanted it to have a very luxurious and elegant yet modern feel. We found a decorator who really matched this style and was able to make my vision come to life - and who was just as excited about the new design! The mandap was unlike anything our guests had seen before, and we received many compliments on it!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
It was raining very hard during the baraat and both the groom's and bride's side ended up dancing together under the covered hotel entrance like one big party! While the bride is often not seen until she walks down the aisle, I joined the party and Anand and I gave a little performance during the baraat! The guests really enjoyed this little twist! Our wedding ceremony was in the afternoon and went straight into cocktail hour and reception - the guests certainly appreciated that it wasn't an early morning start!

 

Amazing wasn't it? More to come, stick around!
