Fairfax, VA Sikh Fusion Wedding by Photographick Studios

The final moment arrived and it was time for our couple's happily ever after! Of course, such new paths have to begin with a celebration! If there is a word to describe this reception, it would be elegance. Samantha & Vick's vision was this union between the east and west color aesthetics and the result was a grand gala that genuinely stood out. Maharani Samantha, on the other hand, absolutely stole the limelight. On her special day of magic, she looked drop-dead radiant. One of the reasons? The team from Bridal Elegance by Suman Khosla no less. They assisted with hair and makeup and as we will see in today's gallery thanks to Photographick Studios, the mastery of their work manifested in its entirety with this beauty. So, ladies, this incredible fusion gala is one not to miss! Stick around!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I was introduced to Gurvikram (Vick) through a mutual friend. We dated for 8  years before we got married. Vick was terrified of dogs growing up in India. I knew he was the one when we got our golden retriever (Bean) as an 8-week old puppy and he fell in love with her. He has been obsessed with her, and every other dog on the street, ever since. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
When we lived in Philadelphia for graduate school, we used to take our dog for walks in Washington Square Park. One day he told me he was taking me for dinner and he wanted to walk through the park. As we walked through the park, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He had hired a photographer who captured the perfect photos. And of course, our friends then brought Bean to get family photos as well! 
 
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.
Wedding planning was crazy! We had an American wedding and Indian wedding, so it was double the fun but double the chaos. We had separate venues, hair & makeup teams, outfits, decor, everything. I mainly handled the American wedding while my amazing mother in law and sister in law handled the Indian wedding. We divided and conquered and everything eventually was completed. It was an amazing weekend thanks to everyone who helped, we couldn't have done it without them! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The best part of the wedding was spending time with our friends and family. We all live such busy lives so it can be hard to see each other and connect. It was amazing to stand back and truly appreciate each and every person in the room and how much they mean to us. Our wedding would not have been the same without them! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
RELAX -- it will all be okay!! No one looks at your centerpieces anyway.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Instead of a cake, we did a donut wall, s'mores station, and ice cream sundae bar. It was so much more fun and everyone loves a good donut!

 

Amazing, isn't it? More to come tomorrow, ladies!

Chapel Hill, NC Sikh Fusion Wedding by Vesic Photography

Few things are as striking as a Maharani on her wedding day. This Indian beauty was a jaw drop sensation, and thanks to our gallery of today by Vesic Photography, we can have a glimpse of her style and aura. After the charming western ceremony took place, it was time to move the gala to the reception hall of The Carolina Inn. Our now newlyweds made sure to throw a huge party for their loved ones and so celebrate the most important day of their lives. A definite success! The atmosphere was full of love, laughter, music, and family. All were essential features for a wedding for the ages. If you think that the lavish decor was incredible, just wait until you check Amarpreet & Michael's fashion choices! Style at it's finest! So, ladies, get those ideas going by heading to our gallery and experience this bash with us!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mike and I met during medical school orientation and became inseparable pretty quickly. In the summer of 2011, we joined a group of our medical school colleagues on a trip to Tanzania. We worked in a clinic in Mwanza, went on safari in the Serengeti, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and enjoyed the beaches of Zanzibar. It was during that trip that I realized that I could not live without him. He was/is my best friend and the most amazing person that I have ever met in my life. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India with my mom to do all of my wedding shopping (with the help of my family in India). For my Anand Karaj, I always knew I wanted to look like a traditional Sikh/Punjabi bride. Since our wedding was in the winter, I loved the idea of maroon/burgundy lengha in velvet material with a light pink contrast dupatta. My lengha was custom made and exactly the way I had imagined it. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The time I got to spend with my family (in the US and India). My cousins, parents, and siblings were all very helpful and its the memories of sitting in the living room, late night, working on the numerous 'projects' with my mom, dad, and sister that I will cherish forever. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think everyone really loved the fusion of our cultures and being a part of all of the different events. As a couple, we had many hurdles to cross over the prior 8 years together (different religions, cultures, etc) and everyone was really excited that the wedding weekend was here at last - the dancing never stopped and the energy was high all weekend. Guests also have commented on how much they loved a lot of the details such as the personal notes I wrote on the back of every place card at the reception and the paper airplanes handmade from ski maps for escort cards. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
For our American ceremony, Mike and I wrote our own vows. I will never forget the way Mike looked at me as I read him my vows. I remember looking around the room in that moment and feeling so grateful to have all of the people that we love there to support us. I still get chills thinking about it. 
 
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.
Jaggo/Mehendi Party -  at my parents' house in a clear top tent with string lights - the decor was pink and orange; we had a Mehendi artist, dhol, a bindi/bangle bar for the guests. The DJ kept the dance floor packed all night and the food was amazing!
 
Sangeet/Rehearsal Dinner - we had this event at the great room at top of the hill in chapel hill. The colors/decor was peacock inspired so lots of blues and purple. Our family/friends performed Bollywood dances, we had a bhangra team perform and teach the guests some basic bhangra moves, there were amazing speeches from our friends and for food, we went with southern comfort food. It was the perfect fusion. 
 

Don't go anywhere, every day more weds!

Valencia, CA Indian Wedding by Greycard Photography

After both Sikh and Hindu ceremonies came to an end, it was time to change attires, put the dancing shoes on, and head down to the reception hall of the Hyatt Regency Valencia for the lavish celebration. Maharani Nisha just blew me away with her night time style saree. The wardrobe choice was this gorgeous baby pink dream with details in gold that was complemented by a hair and makeup work for the books! So heavenly! We can't also forget about the person who swept our bride from her feet into the aisle. Raja Ankush came out looking totally sharp with the classic groom look, of course giving it his own style! Everyone was absolutely ready to start celebrating the milestone of these two lovebirds and who better than Dj Scorpio to bring the house down with an over the top playlist? Ladies, I am loving this! Head down to our gallery of today thanks to Greycard Photography's artistry and join one more time, Nisha & Ankush on the most important day of their lives. Let's get to it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through a mutual friend. Ankush was studying in Mexico and I was living in Sacramento. Our first date was in Los Angeles. Ankush took me to an area where we could see the lights of LA. We had wonderful conversations but soon we realized the car battery had died. Stuck on a mountain and the only thought the came to our minds was to call my brother, who was also visiting, and was a mechanic. We both knew then that we wanted to see each other again. I knew he was the one when our phone conversations lasted 8+ hours and it continues to be as long 10 years later!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ankush flew me down to Los Angeles. He spent all day spoiling me. For dinner, he took me to dinner on the hilltop. In a private area he reserved, Ankush got on one knee and proposed. Ankush thanked me for being so patient and expressing how happy he was that we made it so far.
 
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.
Planning a wedding, we had to hire a wedding planner. Ankush has a big family in Los Angeles and I had a small family spread in England and all over California. I was living in Sacramento, California at the time. A few months later, I ended up getting a job in Los Angeles. Prior to moving, Ankush’s grandmother passed. Then one month before the wedding my grandfather had passed away. We knew we wanted to incorporate our grandparents on our special day. We booked the Hyatt in Valencia, California. It was close to our home and we loved how accommodating the venue was for us. The family would have plenty to do and the hotel was accommodating to our guests. Hair and makeup were so relaxing. In the morning, we finished 30 minutes early and spent time talking and relaxing. My outfit was very light with heavy thread work. I had one red chunni covering my head and a blush pink drapes on my shoulder. Our theme was a secret garden with lots of fresh flowers. The most important details were being family-oriented. I walked down the aisle with my parents and my grandfather who was so excited to go. I feel our grandparents were there in spirit.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wasn’t sure what I wanted but I knew I wanted a beautiful red. I wanted to look simple and classy. I questioned my bridal jewelry because it was mint green. But when everything came together it looked beautiful. I felt royal. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was getting my outfits and working with our wedding planner. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved how beautiful our two wedding ceremonies were and how it felt so family-oriented.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance always replays in my head. Ankush’s cousin sang our first song. Everyone was brought to tears.
 
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.
Our sangeet was very classy. Ankush’s family had a lot of performances. The night before the wedding was also very simple but meaningful. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
To enjoy the process and to not stress about every single detail. Also, hire a wedding planner!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I went very frantic with my jewelry for the wedding and simple for the reception. Mehndi I booked as soon as I was engaged. I follow his work on Instagram and I knew instantly I wanted him to do my bridal henna. The cake was simple but we got owl cake toppers. I painted an owl picture for his birthday and every card we get for each other is owl themed. My bouquet I pressed after the wedding.
