Cultural Weddings: Ornate Indian Wedding Celebration

Out of all the weddings that I have seen online, the ones that always pull me in and make me study the images~ are the Ornate Indian Weddings.  The vibrant colors, the beautiful decor, and the steeped traditions in everything are GORGEOUS.

Here’s a wedding reel from Once Wed.  This wedding, the photos, the details…it was just WAY to gorgeous to not share with my readers!  Someday I hope to go to a real Indian wedding and see it all for myself <3

It’s been quite some time since we’ve featured a swoon-worthy Indian wedding on our blog.  But the moment I stumbled upon this multicultural stunner captured by Nadine of Love Me Do Photography, I knew we had to share!

Sonal and Keith tied the knot on 11.26.2011.  They chose the Hyatt Regency in Jersey City, NJ for their wedding venue, and highlighted the bride’s Indian heritage with a rich red and gold wedding color palette.  Although the groom was not of Indian decent, he dressed the part for the big wedding day, standing out in a fabulous way from his Western-dressed groomsmen.  The beautiful bride’s b-maids wore elegant red and gold saris, the hairstyle of their choice, and a single white bloom tucked behind the ear.

The cultural details were opulent and luxe, with touches of gold galore!  The escort cards were elephant shaped, the reception tables were dripping with candlelight, and the clear turquoise vases filled with exotic orchids and classic hydrangeas surrounding a single high topiary centerpiece made a seriously stunning statement!

2012 Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall Collection

This collection of gowns is GORGEOUS.  Each of these are exquisite, classic, clean and something that can be worn on the red carpet, to a wedding, black tie, etc.  In my dream wedding, my hot bridesmaids would be wearing one of the top two purple gowns below… *sigh *  a girl can always dream right?

 

This one here…is my all time favorite.  The romantic flow of this dress and the perfect fit to a woman’s body is exquisite.

Gabriel Union and Dwayne Wade on the cover of Essence Magazine

I saw this article on JustJared.com and just had to re-post!  I’m in LOVE with this couple and also like how they’re low key.  You rarely hear about them or see them in the media (besides their work).

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade get close on the cover of Essence’s February 2012 issue, on newsstands Thursday (January 12).

In the issue, Dwyane, 29, spoke about the couple’s thoughts on marriage.

“We’re not rushing it. Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right. We both took failing at marriage hard. The next time it’s gotta be forever,” he said.

FINALLLYYYY~~~ After 4.5 years together, Justin Timberlake popped the question to Jessica Biel!  Rumors speculate that he proposed in December, but the news is just coming out today.  The two broke up for 3 months and only got back together because Justin promised to get his iSH together and take their relationship to the next step.

Justin proposed to Jessica on a trip to the mountains where they were snowboarding.  Apparently it’s her favorite place to be.

For this super athletic couple…congrats!!  This is a long time coming.  Ms. Biel~ I only hope you can tame JT and this doesn’t become a messy divorce.

Crazy right?  I didn’t even know LeBron had a girlfriend!  Nevertheless, 2 kids with his baby mama and high school sweatheart.  The two have been dating for 11 years and finally got engaged on New Year’s Eve.  WOWzaaa

LeBron and Savannah have two children: LeBron Jr., 7, and Bryce, 4.

“LeBron rules, on and off the courts! He scored a slam-dunk with this magnificent platinum and diamond engagement ring, featuring a 7-carat pear-shaped center diamond with classic tapered baguette sides,” jewelry expert Michael O’Connor told Us Weekly. “We haven’t really seen this style of ring with a large pear-shaped center diamond since another great love affair: Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor!”

A source tells Us that James, 27, popped the question to Brinson at the Shelborne hotel in South Beach Saturday while their two kids, James’ Miami Heat teammate Dwyane Wade, Wade’s girlfriend Gabrielle Union, Lance Bass and Jamie Lynn Sigler looked on.
