Shivani weds Aakash Indian Wedding at The Hilton Orlando Photographed Fine Art Productions

Imagine taking a stroll by the water in a park and suddenly you notice rose petals on the ground and a photographer clicking away trying to capture each and every moment of your movements. Before you know it, your best friend and your soulmate is on one knee asking you to marry him. For a moment you want to pinch yourself to be sure you are not dreaming. This was not a dream, but reality for Shivani when Aakash proposed to her at Curtis Hixon Park in Tampa. After this romantic proposal came the real work. Planning and picking the right wedding vendors so their big day went as smoothly as possible. Planning a wedding along with trying to juggle between work, looking for a house, community service, and trying to have some sort of social life, seemed almost impossible. Luckily, from the very beginning Shivani and Aakash hired Umangi Patel & Rikti Smart with Elite Dream Creations. Shivani recommends any bride planning a traditional Indian wedding to hire a wedding planner! They have creative ideas and clever ways of efficiently handling certain situations. Shivani weds Aakash Indian Wedding at The Hilton Orlando Photographed Fine Art Productions Given most Indian weddings are large productions with several events and lots of people. Shivani and Aakash planned to invite more than 700 people for their celebration, so picking the right, and large enough, venue was a challenge. A venue in Orlando was ideal since Aakash lives in Tampa and Shivani in Viera. The couple wanted to be sure to find the right location, with hospitality and the right price tag. The Hilton Orlando offered everything they needed for their fairytale wedding. The couple’s big day was November 9, 2019, and included pre-wedding events such as the Mehndi, Sangeet and Pithi. The wedding ceremony was indoors. The Occasions by Shangri La decor team created a true vision in the ballroom. Upon entering, a beautiful floral ring of white, ivory, and hints of blush pink, hung over the mandap, with four hanging wisteria vines. The walls were covered with a beautiful golden drape and two massive Ultra HD screens projecting a live feed behind the mandap. Two white floral peacocks were resting at the front of the aisle, which was all white with floating candles lined across the side. When planning the reception, Shivani wanted it to feel like the first day she met Aakash at Tomorrowworld. The stage was designed and decorated exactly the same way to resemble the stage where the couple originally met. The Grand Finale of the wedding came when couple’s first dance performance began to the tune “I Like Me Better” by Lauv. Schamir, one of Aakash’s groomsmen, played the piano while Hanna Malik, Shivani’s friend, sang the song. See this lovely indian bride and groom capture

Anu weds Darshan Indian wedding at Gujarat Cultural Association Photographed Zamana Lifestyles Photography & Videography

Is love at first sight possible? Two strangers meet each other at a party and there’s an instant attraction, an electric spark, and suddenly they’ve found their match and never look back. Believe it or not, this is exactly what happened to Anu and Darshan. The two met eight years ago at a birthday party and instantly knew they were made for each other. Anu and Darshan also defied another misconception that long distance relationships do not work. Though Anu was living in Tennessee and Darshan in Texas, the couple managed to make it through their college days and even graduate school. If you think the beginning was romantic, imagine how the proposal enfolded for these two. Darshan planned the surprise proposal with all the minute details. Darshan made arrangements for Anu to fly to Texas, order Torchy’s Taco (the couple’s favorite food) ready at the hotel, and took her to their final spot in Hermann Park in Houston. While there, he got down on one knee for the romantic proposal one month before Anu graduated pharmacy school. Soon after they set their wedding date for July 14, 2019, and immediately began planning. An Indian wedding without a wedding planner is almost impossible and especially when Anu and Darshan were planning five events and a 1,200 person wedding! One early decision the couple made was to hire K.I Weddings as their planner.

The real fun began with pre wedding events including the Mehndi, Vidhi and Garba. Anu and Darshan wanted to be sure their romance was reflected in their wedding events. What comes to your mind first when you hear the word “love?” For most Hindus, Radha-Krishna represent an epitome of love, selfless love. So Anu decided the centerpiece for the garba would be a murti of Radha-Krishna dancing surrounded by candles. The dandiya and the stage had two panels of large peacock feathers that Krishna wears on his head. The symbolism of love continued on their wedding day. When Darshan arrived at wedding place on a black convertible Corvette driven by his brother, they experienced some light drizzle during the baraat entrance. According to Hinduism, rain is tied to luck and an abundance of love and blessings from heaven for couple’s bright future together. Anu paid attention to every tiny detail while planning her wedding day decor. The décor was blush pink and white floral with gold touches that helped Anu’s dress stand out. She also had an open mandap because they have a large family and each one had a role during the ceremony The reception décor was modern with green boxwood and gold with geometric shapes and circles. Flowers were white hydrangeas. Anu’s dress was blush pink so they incorporated that with a touch of pink flowers on the stage. And finally this romantic union of two souls displayed the true epitome of love when the couple began their first dance performance with the song “Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye” that translates to “Whenever something goes wrong, Whenever there’s a problem, Stand by my side, My Beloved.”

Neema weds Jeet Indian Wedding at Durham Convention Center Photographed Pixology By Shray

Neema Dave and Jeet Patel’s love story was anything but typical! In fact, their story is one of a role-reversal. When Neema saw Jeet performing at an event, she was smitten, and decided to find him on Facebook. She left him a message, not sure whether he would respond or not. Jeet did reply and asked Neema out. For the first date, he took her stargazing where they spent hours talking and getting to know each other. Jeet knew then he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Neema. The couple hired DNS Events to help them with the vendor search and selection process. Neema and Jeet stayed involved with the entire process. The couple chose the Durham Convention Center in Durham, North Carolina, as the venue for the wedding and pre-events, which included the mehndi, pithi and a Family Night Gala. Astonishing indian couple's wedding photography by Pixology By Shray Their wedding was a beautiful, personalized celebration. From recreating their first date to personalized menus and welcome signs at the events, they both added their personal touch wherever possible. Instead of a reception, the couple decided to host a fun Family Night Gala the night before the wedding. The theme for the Gala was elegant, romantic and regal. During the event, Neema and Jeet recreated their entire love story from their first meeting and first date to their proposal. Jeet and Neema recreated their first date at the Gala complete with a starry lighting effect, followed by a dance performance to a song about falling in love under the stars. Neema also prepared a surprise performance for Jeet. She danced to “Kala Chasma,” wearing sunglasses that were personalized with their wedding hashtag, #Jeema. Aside from the personalized menu, guests were offered personalized drinks, Neema’s favorite Pelligrino and Jeet’s favorite Cheerwine, a local favorite. Neema and Jeet’s ‘wow’ moment came when their first saw each other in their wedding outfits. Neema said, “When we had our first look, it finally hit us that we get to spend the rest of our lives with each other. Being together makes us better people and completes us. And we were so happy that after the year of planning that moment was finally here.” Cute indian bride and groom holding hands
