When a digital content creator gets married, what else can you expect? We loved the whole vibe of this wedding, which had some fun moments, gorgeous bridal outfits and some insanely cute 'first look' videos- yes, even with the groomsmen and bridesmaids! Jully and Shahil's wedding in Florida had a lot of cute ideas to take inspiration from, and we also loved her unique hairdos for each event- take a look at this viral wedding, which was love at first sight for us.
Meet Jully and Shahil
"Our paths first crossed when we were both 12. My family was traveling and stopped at his house since they had known each other. Fast forward to 2017 when we crossed paths again when my cousin was getting engaged to his older brother. I guess you can say it was Hum Aapke Hain Kaun sort of scene."

From The Bride
I'm very fond of neutrals, lights, and open spaces and wanted to apply this to our wedding, while still giving a grand feel. I didn't have a pre-set "theme" in mind per say but knew the ambience I wanted to set. Each event was held at a different space at the resort which helped deliver the feel I was going for. From the moment our guests received their save the dates, to wedding invites, and arrived at the resort, I wanted a very light and comforting mood to be set from the beginning. The mandap draped in taupe fabric with florals tied together the wedding party colors (family wore ivory, bridesmaids/groomsmen had a light shade of blush).
My favorite moment from our wedding weekend would have to be our haldi day, our first event at the resort. Our guests were dressed in different shades of yellow, green, and orange while Shahil and I opted for muted white. Haldi can be both a fun and emotional time and having our guests come to Shahil and I to give their blessings was beautiful, especially since we did a combined haldi.
Gaylord Palms Resort in Florida: I was set on wanting a venue which had natural light and this venue was able to deliver just that. Our wedding space was a large glass dome with a lot of natural light and greenery - making our guests feel like they were outdoors but saving them from the scorching sun. Our Haldi was held in a pavillion space on the 2nd floor to give our guests an open and airy feeling. And the reception in a different portion of the resort to cater towards the more upscale and dark, nighttime ambiance.
Makeup and Hairstyling
A Touch Of Fierce: I could not compliment my makeup and hairstyling team enough. As a bride, you have a vision of how you want to look at each event. My stylists listened to my needs from our first trial and applied all that I wanted during my wedding weekend. Each look was styled keeping the outfit and jewelry in mind. Kenya & Ruth from A Touch Of Fierce, killed it!
Signature Weddings: Cyndi from Signature weddings was a blessing to work with. She was very detailed oriented and made sure everything was executed properly. We emphasized the importance of our timings for certain rituals and she would ensure things ran on schedule. Aside from being detailed oriented, Cyndi and her team made both Shahil and I feel comfortable throughout the wedding weekend. Anything we needed, or any small hiccup that came in our way, Cyndi and her team handled it in a timely and professional matter.
Peter Nguyen Studio: Peter is a delight to work with. From his level of professionalism to his calming and fun nature, shooting with Peter is so much fun! Prior to our wedding I sat down and worked with him on the style of photos I wanted to receive and he delivered exactly that. Peter and his team really capture the emotion and atmosphere from the wedding with minimal edits required.
Oak and Gold Studios were our photographers for our sangeet/garba! Great couple to work with that provided some lively photos!
Decor and Florist
Occasions by Shangrila: Remmal did an exceptional job at brining my vision to life. He was great to work with and listened to my ideas. All three of my events were what I dreamed of.
Haldi - Punit Balana, Wedding - Marwar Couture Bride and Reception- Reynu Taandon: So I was one of the virtual brides, searching for her dream dress online, in fear. However, that soon changed when I got in contact with these amazing designers. The people I communicated with were great at showing me options, explaining the work, and making me feel comfortable. I ended up forming some amazing bonds with those who I communicated with and am still in touch. I often get asked, "don't you wish you were able to go see our lengha's in person? Do you regret anything?" And I merely answer, "no". I was able to find my dream lenghas in the comfort of my home, all thanks to those I got in contact with.
Abhinav Mishra was the designer for the garba/sangeet Pink: We knew we wanted mirror work for our garba and Abhinav Mishra is the king of mirror work! I am a very neturals girl but decided to play with color and opted for a pink mirror work lengha!
Purab Paschim by Ankit Khullar: I was connected with Piyush Khullar and hes been such a pleasure to work with. I love styling and Piyush & I were able to bond over that so well! We worked on each look in detail and brought it to life for each event!
Henna Allure: Salma is extremely talented. I asked for a mix of traditional and modern henna with small intricate details and thats what she provided.
Haldi - Punit Balana Wedding - Anushree Reddy Reception - Suit Supply Finding Shahil's outfits was even more tough than finding mine. Punit Balana's team did a great job in sketching his outfit for me to match my haldi lengha. To this day, his haldi outfit is his favorite, and I too agree.
More Than Thumkas: Obsessed with Prabhu & his team! Virtual videos were well executed and he was so great at communicating and providing us what we needed right away. We told him we are very much a bollywood couple and for all of our events, he provided us with some amazing choreography!
M4U Events and DJ Sunny P Events: M4U events are known for creating a fun and loud atmosphere and boy did they do that. From our exceptional MC that kept the crowd on their feet to the DJ that made everyone glued to the dance floor, M4U made the reception night a success.
Khasiyat Orlando - Amazing gujarati thaali dinner after the wedding. Each item was well made and the live puri station was adored by all. Reception dinner was catered by Aashiwad in Orlando. The cocktail hour took the show with "His and Her" signature drinks, quesadillas, different chaats, and more!
Vivah Cards Ahmedabad - Vivah Cards delivered our dream wedding cards. Our guests were in awe with the simplicity yet spark that the invites carried. The invites were a muted ivory with blush pinks and greens. They were the perfect combination of modern yet traditional with the elements that were placed.
