One of the most emotional cross-cultural weddings we have done was for Sukriti and Zaeem.  Everything was well organized and the location The Park Savoy Estate in New Jersey is so gorgeous that it made the wedding more spectacular.  We were so touched by the flow of emotions that it even made our eyes watery.

The religious ceremonies started with an exquisite mehndi event 2 days prior to the wedding and it was followed with a picturesque sangeet night.  On the sangeet night, we noticed an amazing amalgamation of Punjabi folk dance, Bhangra along with some sufi songs.  We could feel the love is in the air with their family getting together and dancing through the night.

The wedding day was even more beautiful as we could see both a Hindu Punjabi wedding priest along with an Immam to do a Muslim wedding which were both done in a very  different way and we could say an array of emotions not only among the close family members but also in the greater audience who all enjoyed this unique wedding.

We cannot thank Suku & Zaeem enough for giving us this opportunity to be a part of their special day.  We hope you guys enjoy looking at this special blog as much as we did shooting them on their wedding day.

01: Hire a Planner / Coordinator


Ask any bride and most will say that having someone help coordinate your wedding day was one of the best decisions they've made. Family and friends are a great alternative, yet having someone that is laser focused on what you envisioned and planned can be lost with loved ones.


"People do not truly recognize the value of being surrounded by experienced, competent, kind, and adaptable individuals on a day that is bound to be chaotic, stressful, and unpredictable until they experience it themselves." ~~Shruti

02: Keep Your Normal Life Style


Do not change your daily habits just because your wedding is approaching, such as over working yourself, trying new beauty products and strenuous workouts for the weeks leading up to your wedding. The last thing you want is an allergic reaction or a sore body.


"If you're looking for flawless skin during your wedding, I would recommend beginning a proper skincare regimen at least 4-6 months before your wedding. I made the mistake of testing various products about 6 weeks in advance and didn't see much of a difference." ~~Khushabhu

03: Take Lots of Photos


Make a list of photos you specifically want throughout the day and provide it to your photographer. Think about the combination of poses, locations and the people who are most important to you. These are some of the only tangible memories you'll take away from your dream wedding, so put some thought into this as you plan your day.


"Looking back, I wish we took time to take more photos...I realized I didn't have photos with some of my closest friends! It was hard to recall on the day of who I did and didn't take photos with, so letting the photographer know ahead of time would have been helpful." ~~Gina

04: Eat


Remember to step back from the drinking and dancing to take a few moments to enjoy your specially crafted dinner on your big day. You, more than probably, spent countless hours on at food tasting and money on the food that will be served to you and your guests. Last thing you want is to faint from lack of nutrition on your day of celebration.


"I got so caught up in greeting my guests and being on the dance floor that I didn't even have a second to sit down and have dinner!" ~~Henna

05: Be Different


Don't be afraid to break from small traditions and step outside the box. Your wedding day does not have to be cookie cutter so get creative and put your own magical touch into your wedding day.


"It's important to focus on what you want and not what others want. We have a big family and had a lot of differing opinions but we made sure to ultimately stay strong and steer towards the direction of doing things the way we wanted it done." ~~Shilpa

06: It's Not Always Perfect


There will be glitches during your big day and that's okay. Having 100-300+ guests, 7+ vendors, and 2 or more intricate events; there are chances things won't always go according to plan. More likely than not you're the only one who knows of the 'plan'. To everyone else, nothing would even seem to have gone wrong. So, breathe, don't let any minor mishap get under your skin during your big day.


"We had a few minor hiccups on the morning of my wedding day due to reasons beyond anyone's control. I let it bother me all morning and in retrospect I wish I had just been in the moment and enjoyed getting ready instead of fussing about minor details." ~~Nidhi

07: Soak It In


Step away with your lovely new husband for a second and watch your wedding from a distance. Take in all the love in that room..


"The best part was walking into the event spaces and being able to just take a moment and enjoy it." ~~Anjani
