Saratoga Springs, NY Indian Fusion Wedding by OM Storytelling

Hello ladies, we are so excited to bring part two of Molly & Atirek's happily ever after! The fairytale wedding had a short break after the ceremony. During this time, all the guests could accommodate inside the lovely Longfellows, while our friends from OM Storytelling, brilliantly captured the most tender love scenes of the newlyweds. Our new Mrs, the beautiful Molly, flaunted in every snap her fabulous cream color lengha perfectly draped by her beauty squad, Makeup By Karishma and posed proudly next to her handsome Raja Atirek. Music Man Entertainment's pump beats enlivened the night while the decor experts Market32 filled the reception spot with romantic touches and dim lights. What a great job they did and what a special union we had today, Maharanis! It's time to check out all the fabulous captures of this memorable night in our complete gallery!

Indianapolis, IN Indian Fusion Wedding by Making the Moment

We are back with part two of our feature of the day, ladies! As we saw on part one, the pre-wedding rituals and the two magnificent ceremonies were absolutely magical. Our lovebirds swore everlasting love to one another and the place was full of cheerfulness and joy. No less, when love is being celebrated, everything seems to be in beautiful harmony. What was also harmonious, was our couple's overall color palette choices and details of the decoration. The coral and soft tones were for sure the perfect choice to contrast with the strong and lively energy of the newlyweds. As their name clearly states it, Weddings InStyle indeed brought the style and assisted the couple with the floral & decor of the bash. We are loving the care put into the entire celebration, you can tell! The Indianapolis Public Library gave a warm welcome to the guests for the reception and gave the gala that extra something that places chosen with intuition can give. So, ladies, we know you are curious. Don't wait any longer and join us for part two of Paulomi & Sunit's grand Sikh - Hindu wedding in our gallery by Making the Moment!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Sunit had the perfect surprise proposal planned out - but as we all know, things don't always go exactly as expected!  We had been planning our trip to Peru for several months and were really excited to hike the Inca Trail up to Machu Picchu.  Unfortunately, Sunit got sick the morning of and I wanted to cancel going since I knew it was a pretty intense hike.  He didn't want to change our plans and insisted that we still go, despite my worrying about him.  The weather was rainy and cold and he definitely didn't feel well the whole morning, even stopping to get sick during the climb up the mountains.  But by the afternoon, the sun came out, he started to feel much better, and we reached the Sun Gate.  I walked over to the edge to enjoy the view over Machu Picchu, and when I turned around, he was down on one knee!  Our tour guide got the perfect proposal picture where you'd never know what a rollercoaster the day was before that moment!
 
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 knew early on that we wanted to honor the traditions and religions of both families equally, so that meant two ceremonies and an extended weekend full of celebrations!  Sunit and I were planning on starting our new life together in Indianapolis and it felt only natural to have the wedding there as well, so shortly after we got engaged, we started looking at venues here. There are so many beautiful options in the area, but when I walked into each of our venues (the ArtsGarden, the Indiana Statehouse, and the Indianapolis Public Library), I actually said "this is perfect" under my breath. Through a crazy stroke of luck, they were all available for the same weekend, and we were off!
 
Our vendors, who were wonderful to work with and made our lives so much easier, fell into place one by one (with more than a little help from this website!)  With the help of our families, who were amazing from the beginning to the end, we started putting each of the pieces together.  We wanted each event to have its own feel, from the décor to the food to the music, so there were a lot of decisions to be made and logistics to be worked.  We had a lot of marathon phone calls and long email threads but the final result was perfect and made it all worth it!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had amazing help from my mother and from Sunit's mother to help pick out my outfits.  My parents went to India on my behalf, as I was finishing fellowship and didn't have time to go myself.  When she visited the Sabyasachi showroom and I was able to FaceTime with the staff there, I fell in love with the Anarkali - and since I knew pink was an auspicious color for a Sikh wedding, there was no question this was my Sikh ceremony outfit.  Funnily enough, my dad found my Sangeet outfit.  Blue has always been his favorite color - and mine!  It felt so fun and perfect for an evening of music and dancing.
 
My mother in law and I had an amazing time finding my reception outfit.  Tarun Tahiliani happened to be visiting and we were so lucky to have him meet us and design an outfit for me.  I ended up with the perfect dress and I couldn't stop twirling around in it all night (ask anyone there!)
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food!  Anu from Indian Garden went so far above and beyond that we will never be able to thank her enough.  We asked her to work in four different venues and she delivered beyond all expectations.  Not only did she make sure everything was perfect with the menus/displays/servers/etc, she also gave us truly outstanding food (she impressed even the toughest critics in our family/friends circle and that's saying something).  Each event had its own "theme" for food and a lot of care was put into making sure each meal felt special and unique. I can't even remember the number of our guests who asked for her information in the weeks after our wedding, and we still have friends who reminisce about our cocktail hour, over a year later!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our reception was so much fun from beginning to end, but in particular, I remember the last song of the night.  Everyone was in a huge circle on the dance floor, singing together, and I kept looking around and seeing so many friends and family from all different stages of our life.  It was incredibly humbling, that we were surrounded by so much love, and it just filled me with immense gratitude and joy. I can't imagine a better way to start a new life together!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I know everyone says it, but truly - take a breath and enjoy being engaged!  It passes by so quickly and it's so easy to get consumed by all the planning.  Plan date nights, go visit somewhere new together, create "no wedding talk" zones, and most importantly, just have fun!  Your wedding is going to be perfect, make sure to slow down and enjoy it.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Once we found my wedding lehenga, I realized that the rosettes on the dupatta were gorgeous and I wanted to have them on my cake!  Our cake designers were fantastic and did a great job duplicating them to trail down the side of our cake.  It was a special detail that probably only a few people noticed but made me really happy!
 
More to come tomorrow, Maharanis!

Indianapolis, IN Indian Fusion Wedding by Making the Moment

Some people say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Some others say that a smile communicates more than what words ever can. What is certain, is that in today's feature, both through their eyes and smiles, we can witness the vibrant emotion and love our couple has for each other. So, for that reason, we are absolutely excited to be able to share with you, daydreamers, a wedding that has those features all over the place. The fusion gala comes to us from Indianapolis and thanks to the extraordinary visual and emotional talent of our friends from Making the Moment. They, as we know, are able to capture those little glimpses that give days like those, it's full meaning. A loving shout out to them for their work! Maharani Paulomi was looking radiant since day one up to day five of rituals. Our couple was also up to a great start, as it should be, with Black & Gold Dance Troupe, who brought all the modern Bollywood moves to the pre-ceremony rituals and rocked the place. The first ceremony arrived at the beautiful Gurdwara Shri Guru Hargobind Sahib where this lovely pair joined their lives in a splendid Sikh ceremony. The second main moment was quickly approaching and Raja Sunit knew that his entrance had to be grand, he arrived at the Hindu ceremony looking sharp with a gold sherwani and riding the traditional white horse. Truly a movie-like scene! It was all nervousness as our beautiful Maharani walked down the aisle to finally tie the knot and start her life long journey with her new partner honoring both of their families. Come and check the highlights of what was Paulomi & Sunit's nuptials, knowing that today's featured gallery, will also put a smile on your faces!

Mississauga, ON Indian Wedding by Strokes Photography

My heart is exploding with joy as I peruse through the wonderful Indian wedding celebration honoring Maharani Aditi and Pral, captured by the oh so talented, Strokes Photography. The talented décor team brought the gardens of the outdoors in with a gorgeous floral mandap overflowing with pastel garnishment orchestrated by Wedding Décor. I love mandaps that are not overly complicated because I feel it takes away from our Maharani! The bride walked down the petal-filled pathway and has never looked back! The series of lighting draped above the venue made for a romantic effect, designed by Nspire SoundSee some of my favorite images down by and peruse through the gallery for more Indian wedding inspiration!
