I’m so excited to bring you today’s fusion wedding because it was planned by Indian Wedding Site’s very own Chandani of Events by C and photographed by the talented Photography by Brea. Photography by Brea did such a beautiful job capturing today’s wedding. She focused in on the emotions of the big day while still giving us tons of décor shots for inspiration!

Lucky for us Chandani gave us so many behind the scenes details that instead of me writing about the wedding, I’m going to let her takeover to give us the play by play!

“Sarmila and Khalid met in DC while she lived in London and he lived in MD. Khalid eventually moved to London to be with his love.  I met with Sarmila and Khalid in person once when they hired me, but then we planned their entire wed ding over Skype while they were both in London and I was there in MD. Sarmila really wanted a Sri Lankan/American fusion wedding, but did not quite know what that meant or what it would look like. I worked closely with her and Partyland Flowers to achieve her vision – and she was thrilled with the final result.  Sarmila and Khalid are both from Sri Lanka, but Sarmila is Hindu and Khalid is Muslim. Instead of having multiple ceremonies – they chose to have a non-religious vow exchange ceremony that was short and sweet.”

“The ceremony faced the beautiful fountain at the venue. This was followed by Cocktail Hour on the mansion’s lawn and then everyone moved to the tent for dinner and dancing. We had an elaborate spread of Indian and Sri Lankan fusion dishes served. We had gorgeous deep purple draping separating the tented reception space. Behind the draping was Indian/Moroccan themed lounge for guests to come and relax in. The lounge was complete with a dessert station that had tropical fruit ice cream flavors and pies. There was also a photo booth and bar in the lounge area.”

American designer, Betsey Johnson, does it again! I’m a huge fan of her sassy apparel and footwear styles- but this one is perfect for the classy Indian bride. Almost 4 inches of complete and utter luxury, these satin stunners are a great buy to pair with any beautiful lengha. These are a part of the Blue Bridal Collection– thus the beautiful blue bottoms and the heart charm on the bottom of the shoes! The open toe construction highlights the crystals on the ankle strap. This a truly flattering style for any fashionista! Zappos also carries it in a plethora of colors- love them all!

Today’s CineMonday is packed with beautiful colors, flowing emotions and a touching Anand Karaj ceremony peacefully captured by R5 Vibe. Daljit and Tani looked ravishing in their traditional Indian bridal lengha and gold embroidered achkin, and boy did their guests love to dance! Since this was a same day edit we don’t get to see the reception, but judging from the energy in the pre-wedding festivities, I’m sure the party was out of control!

r5 Vibe did an exquisite job capturing the décor, the intimacy of the ceremony and the joyous parts that accompanied this wedding. I’m sure the bride and groom will cherish these memories for years and years to come!


  • All of the colors!
  • Those gorgeous gold Jimmy Choos
  • Gorgeous pink and gold wedding lengha
  • Sweet emotions during the Anand Karaj
  • Beautiful portrait session- love the bridesmaid outfits!
  • Daljit and Tani all smiles and laughs during their alone time

Designer JJ Valaya’s couture line titled ‘The Nautch of Fez’ was a combination of Indian and Moroccan culture infused with the subtle elements of the Indian nautch girls of the past. Valaya travelled the Moroccan timeline and divided it into six parts – Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Spanish, Turkish and Ottoman.

Using cutting edge techniques such as digital printing, appliqué and laser burning, Valaya perfectly blended the past with contemporary chic. His crisp signature crepes, dupion, georgettes and fine velvets embellished in antique, metallic and neutral tones were showcased in an intriguing fashion medley.

Subtly reflecting the look and feel of Muzaffar Ali’s upcoming period film, Raqs, his and Meera’s collection was inspired by the history of Kotwara and its royal family. As the collection represented the quintessence of the Awadh culture, the designers chose off-shoulder sleeves, high neck sleeveless blouses, embroidered overcoats, angarakhas and flared kurtas to showcase. White was the runway statement color, although it was interspersed with a variety of complimenting colors appearing in royal fabrics of chiffon, velvet, and netting. The creations were exquisitely bedecked with pearls, embroidery, and textured brocades, adding a final touch to the royal finery.
