Long Island, NY Indian Wedding by MaxPhoto NY

Hello, Maharanis! Take a gander at these precious ceremony images of a New York wedding, courtesy of MaxPhoto NY. What a colorful bunch! I am loving all the vibrant bridal fashions that could light up any room! The mandap looks so elegant and I just adore all the white drapery! 

From the bride, on how they met:

"A family friend that knew both our families had set us up. She just called me one day and told me that there was this guy she thought was good for me and asked if she could give him my contact information. I said yes and the next day he emailed me with his contact information and asked to meet up. I texted him as we both did not think anything of it... no expectations. Once we started texting we found each other quite interesting and decided to meet. I had never been so nervous on a first date before. He was soo curtious and respected my eating restrictions as I couldn't eat meat that day and ordered vegetarian for himself too. He was soo romantic yet very respectful. When we had our first kiss i knew he was the one for me. I never believed in love at first sight until I met my husband."

On the proposal:

"It was Super Bowl weekend and I had plans to meet up with his sister for coffee during the day. I was with my boyfriend at the time in the morning and he put me in a cab to go see sister and he apparently went home. I met up with his sister and we were chatting and having coffee when she reaches in her bag and gives me an index card that says, "Hey Sheetal. Lets play a game. Have fun!" She then gave me another one that said " Go to the place where we had our first date" So we walked out of the coffee shop and there was a Porche Cayenne stretch limo waiting outside and the driver had a sign with my name on it. Out comes my sister's boyfriend with a video camera too. So the three of us get into the limo and go to the restaurant. Then she gives me 3 index cards with goofy questions about him which i had to answer. After i answered those correctly i received an index card saying to go to the place where we had our first kiss. So we headed to my sisters apartment(the kiss happened outside of her apartment). When we got there my sister gave me an index card which said i had to find a blue package with her clues. When i found it and unwrapped it, it was a dress and shoes and an index card that said "You have 30 minutes to get ready". So my sister and his sister helped me get ready by straightening my hair and putting makeup on. Once i was ready they gave me another card that said to go to the place where we had our first broadway play. So we headed over to times square. Unfortunately due to the superbowl weekend and all the times square stuff we only made it to 5th Ave. We then met with my other sister who gave me a card saying that i had to sing and dance to a punjabi song that she would play. She played my favorite song, Amplifier by Imran Khan. I then sung and danced on the streets. People kept giving me a second look as i had a camera guy and i was dancing with people around me (during superbowl weekend). Once I completed that task she gave me another card that said to go where the Knicks play. We headed on over there however it was sooo crowded we made it to Bryant Park where we ran into his little brother who gave me a card that said i had to get 3 shots in the hoop. Out he pulls a little basketball hoop and gives me the ball. Once i got 3 shots he gave me a card that said go to the rooftop bar or lounge that you could never get in to (which was 230 5th ave) So we headed there. When we got there only the camera man and my sisters got out with me. My sisters left us in the elevator and the cameraman says to find a familiar face. Once we got up there i searched and all the way in the back of the bar my boyfriend was dressed up waiting for me. He gave me a hug and sat me down ( I was crying by then) He held my hand and spoke about our relationship and how he feels about me and then proposed on his knee. I said yes and we kissed and then celebrated with our siblings. Then we went back in the limo and I was told that we would enjoy the drinks in the limo. The limo ended up taking us to my parents house where all of our close family and friends from the tri state area surprised me. It was the best day of my life!"

On choosing the fashions:

" Pintrest was my best friend during the wedding season. I got many ideas from there and also saw what was out there since I have never really shopped around for anything before. For the reception, I knew i wanted a lehngha in in turquoise and I wanted it to be all silver.... no gold. It took a lot of traveling to find anything with only silver but it was totally worth the wait. I like to be different so I wanted different outfits... so when I came across my wedding lengha i knew it was the one for me because it was simple yet different.."

On the hair & makeup:

"I don't know much about hair and makeup. I just know the bare minimum that is easy to do and that looks good on me so I hired hair and makeup artists who i trusted and they helped me find the perfect look and i felt like i looked better than what i expected."

On the planning process:

"The process was quite stressful so being married to my best friend was what got me through it. But seeing everything come together closer to the wedding was such a great feeling."

On the wedding style:

"I love colors in the blue family so I wanted to have blues everywhere. When I custom made my wedding lehngha I had them put teal in it as they did for my husbands sherwani too. My reception was a turquoise color and my sangeet was a royal blue. I really wanted a fairly simple wedding with close family and friends however since I am the oldest in my family my parents could not hold back which wasn't so bad afterall."

On the most special moment:

"One of the most special moments my husband and I had was towards the end of the night the DJ played the song, All of me, by John Legend and put my husband and i in the middle of the dancefloor with all of our family and friends in a circle around us. And I basically forgot about my surroundings and sang the song to my husband and acted out the words. It was the most powerful moment where i felt it was just me and him in the room and i was expressing ourselves through the song. I can't wait to watch the video :-)"

On the first dance:

"Our first dance was, Tum hi Ho, from the movie, Aashiqui 2. We had his younger brother sing it live while we were slow dancing. At our Rokha, his brother sang that song and we both just fell in love with the words and how his brother sang it so we wanted to share his loving voice to our world."

On help from fam & friends:

"During wedding planning our families helped out which was amazing. I was also pleasantly surprised that some of my friends really came through as well. It made me realize how blessed I really was to have my family, his family and our close friends."

On special details:

"My mom hired a mehndi lady and on the day of the mehndi, she turned out to be a 16 year old girl. I'm not too fond of mehndi, but this girl had done an amazing job. She didn't put too much but made it look absolutely stunning! And it came out so dark too! Our cake lady was pretty awesome too! With a picture that I gave to her of my outfits, she was able to match the color and make our cake look and taste great!"

Check out some of the most memorable highlights from this week!

Somerset, NJ Indian Wedding by Studio Nine Photography

So, some of you may or may not have seen pics from this awesome New Jersey Indian wedding we posted a little bit ago, but either way, you have to check out this highlight reel by Studio Nine Photography + CinemaSonal J. Shah Event Consultants plans the day to perfection! Every detail is spot-on! After celebrating in all the fun and splendor, guests get to enjoy a delicious meal prepared by the magnificent Moghul Caterers! What a treat!

From the bride, on how she met her groom-to-be:

"I officially met George during the very last class of the very last semester of my undergraduate education. Unofficially, we had met during the very first class of my very first semester, but did not speak again after that first encounter. There was no "fireworks" moment that made me think he was the one, I just knew."

On how he proposed:

"I do! George proposed to me in front of the Eiffel Tower after surprising me with a trip to Paris! He told me 2 nights before we were to leave on the trip that we were going and I should let my employers know that I would be out for a couple days. Little did I know he had already worked everything out with them and had everything planned for quite some time! The first thing I thought of when he told me about the trip was, 'Oh, maybe it's for an engagement!' so I called my mother and asked her. My mother, who knew all about the plan, said nothing that would hint towards an engagement being the reason for this trip, so I figured oh well, whatever, I'm still going to Paris! George did not propose the first night, or the 2nd so I had come to terms with the fact that it wasn't going to happen. The third night we were walking along the river, George started going down memory lane. As we approached the Eiffel Tower, he got down on one knee, pulled out a ring and proposed! Not only that, but he timed it perfectly so the proposal was exactly on the hour which is when the lights on the Eiffel Tower change from steady yellow to flickering white. It was the absolute perfect proposal from the absolute perfect guy."

On the wedding style:

"When we sat down to begin planning the decor and theme for the wedding, we knew pretty much off the bat that we wanted a sophisticated and classy but modern look to it all. Since George proposed in Paris, we thought it would be a perfect inspiration and confirmed that we would go with a Parisian theme."

On what she enjoyed most in regards to planning her dream wedding:

"The details! Finalizing flowers and decor, going to food tastings and of course making sure the perfect songs were chosen for the right moments. (And of course, the shopping!!!!)"

On choosing her lenghas:

"I had found a picture of the perfect bridal lengha for the ceremony months before shopping and I thought I'd spend days and days trying to find it. When I went to India, the first store we went to, I was shown a completely different outfit that I thought was completely not me. When I tried it on I fell in love with it and bought it on the spot, not even bothering to search elsewhere. The rest of the outfits were not quite as easy to find and took a lot of time, but eventually I found the perfect attire for each of my wedding events."

On her makeup:

"I, like all other brides, spent hours finding the perfect styles for each of my events. I had a great makeup and hair team which really helped make my ideas come to life. I could not have been happier with the results."

On friends and family helping:

"I have a huge family and friend base who really helped out with this wedding in all senses, but if I have to chose one person who stood out, it would, of course, have to be my mother. Even though we argued 1,000 times and had different opinions on almost everything, in the end she made sure everything went perfectly. My day would not have been as flawless in every aspect if it was not for my mom."

On the song for the first dance:

"We chose, All of Me, by John Legend. When we first heard the song, we thought the lyrics were beautiful and the music was just very enchanting and magical. Then we realized that John Legend had written that song to sing for his wife on their wedding day and we thought it was so romantic."

On the most special moments:

"This is going to sound corny, but after I walked down the aisle to the mandap and they took down the curtain between George and I for the "first look", we moved the chairs side by side and took a selfie! To this day that selfie remains one of my favorite moments (and picture) of the day. A close runner-up to that moment is of course our first dance because even though there were hundreds of people there, during that moment everyone disappeared and it was just us."

Dont fret girls, one more filmy Friday still ahead!

The bride, on her most cherished wedding moment:

"I feel like the whole day was a magical. My husband came in on a monster truck which was so unique and different. It was a big hit!! We love music so having live music was very important to us. During the cocktail hour we had a Caribbean band play the newest hits for our guest. We received so many compliments on how the music was great. Also, we had a drummer who played along with the DJ. He was so great that everyone was on the dance floor the whole time."

On her and her Raja's first dance song:

"Our first dance was All of Me by John Legend and Daniel Jang playing the violin. My husband came across this song on youtube and told me this is the song. After listening to it once I kept listening to it everyday. Every time I listen to this song just brings me back to our very special day."

On friends and family:

"My sister in law and Charmi Pena Patel were a huge help we couldn't have done it without them. They came to all the appointments with us and helped with everything. My cousin, friends, and family helped with all the little details such as making the gift card box, guest sign in book, frames, welcome bags, and all the printing just anything I needed. Special thanks goes to our parents who without them this day couldn't have been possible."

On her vendors:

"Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park just amazing!! Beautiful venue and the staff is amazing! I just love that place! The cake was beautifully decorated with fresh flowers. It looked so good that I didn't want to mess it up. Overall, we had many wonderful memories that we can never forget! Special thanks goes out to all the vendors who made this day run smoothly. Our videographers are just so talented like our photographers. They are going to make our memories last forever!"

That's all for today, Maharanis! See you gorgeous dolls tomorrow!
