A Summer Indian Wedding | Featured on Maharani Weddings

We have taken a long break from blogging to focus on all of our events this summer!  But we have a special extra long post and I could not be more excited to get back in to the routine of blogging with this colorful, fun wedding!  Preya and Adi’s wedding is very near and dear to my heart!  The relationships I built with this family are truly priceless.  I loved spending time with Preya, her family, and working out every single detail that would be executed on her wedding day, down to the very last dance.   (more…)

An Indian Wedding at the Hyatt Indianapolis
Featured on Maharani Weddings

This Bride….This Groom…. Their Wedding…. I absolutely LOVE! I cannot tell you how much I just adore these two! Their kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity for others glowed throughout the entire wedding weekend. They are the sweetest couple – totally in love with one another! Pavan was smitten by her all day! He just kept saying how amazing she looked. And she did – I mean this girl was STUNNING!!! Are you sure you’re not a model Sonia?? 😉 (more…)

An Indian Wedding at the Hyatt Indianapolis
Featured on Maharani Weddings

I was so honored when Sonia asked me to help her with their Indian Wedding! She wanted her design to for her Sangeet celebration to be completely different than the wedding. We went with a Coral, Teal and White color pallet to accentuate the outdoor feel of the Garden Pavilion at the Ritz Charles. Unfortunately, it flooded the day before her event so we had to move everything inside! This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as it was so humid and the 300+ guests appreciated the air conditioning 😉 It was awesome to work with Carpenter Photography and Design for the first time! Check out their AMAZING pictures of Sonia and Pavan’s Sangeet! (more…)

A Vibrant Summer Indian Wedding

I know this blog post is going to be long, but I couldn’t narrow down my favorites! When Neha told me she wanted her wedding to be hot pink and orange, and her reception would be turquoise and white with the hot pink and orange flowers, I was so excited to help design something that was so colorful! I think we definitely gave Neha exactly what she was looking for, down to the orange lillies! Thank you to The Siners for capturing this day so beautifully! Here is part 2 of their AWESOME wedding!

A Vibrant Summer Indian Wedding

I was so excited when I got the chance to do my first Indian Wedding and I could not have asked for a better family to give me this opportunity! I absolutely love them! Neha’s parents came to me last September to help them with their Daughter’s June wedding and I instantly fell in love with them! They made me feel like I was a part of their family forever. I was excited and eager to help them! I jumped right in to learning all of the rituals and cultural meanings behind the different celebrations and ceremonies, and OH MY GOSH, how fun?!? Indians really know how to celebrate! 3 days of beauty and fun!! The colors, traditions, and hospitality of this wedding and family had me hooked. Here is Part 1, the Mendhi, Chuda, and Sangeet – Days 1 and 2 – of this sweet couple who were an absolute gem to work with! (more…)
