Beautiful Hindu Wedding Ceremony

This blog is brought to you by our amazing intern Jackie!
This gorgeous Hindu Wedding Ceremony was captured by Jennifer Kathryn of Jennifer Kathryn Photography in Chicago. I love the intricate details on the bride’s Saree and the groom’s Sherwani. The ceremony sparkled with bright shades of reds and greens, complimented by jewels and gold accents. A few words from Jennifer about the couple:
I don’t know if it was Megha’s beauty and her sparkling laughter that first caught Cameron’s eye, or if it was her incredible balance between a fierce determination and extraordinary kindness. And it’s hard to say whether it was the way Cameron could always make her laugh or if it was his genuineness and honesty that initially drew Megha to him. But when they began studying together virtually every day, it didn’t take long for the two to realize these were only a few among the many qualities they valued in one another. They decided to move their dates beyond the library walls, and soon Megha was being schooled in the ways of beer pong while Cameron was broadening his palate to include Indian and Thai cuisine. That summer their relationship stood through the test of Cameron’s long hours at his new job. He said he’ll never forget the day Megha was helping him move out of his old apartment, and his buddy looked over at him and said, “Cameron, she’s a keeper.” He knew he had truly found a special connection in Megha. Six years later, Cameron asked Megha’s father for his blessing, and that same weekend she said yes. It only takes a few minutes with them to see how strong their adoration for one another is. Coming from two entirely different backgrounds has only served to strengthen their devotion, and it was moving to see their two families embrace one another wholeheartedly.
The ceremony was held at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, which was adorned with exquisite architectural details and lush water fountains. The flowers and decorations by BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir were stunning. I love this wedding with it’s beautiful palette of colors.

For Japan With Love

I am completely humbled by my friends over at Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours. After seeing the devastation in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, they quickly rallied the entire wedding blogging community to come together for a day of silence and prayer They have selected Shelter Box as their charity of choice and each $1000 raised, they will be sending over a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. Their goal was $5500 and in under 4 days, they have already raised over $21,000. Every little bit counts – you can click here to help out. Thank you.

We’re Thrilled To Announce the Launch of Ad Concierge

Ads that don't look like ads generate a much higher click through rate!

Introducing: My Wedding Concierge’s Ad Concierge
You decide what words you would like to be found under. If the spot is available, you
may purchase it on a monthly basis. There are no contracts. Photos must be
contextually relevant to the search term that you’re purchasing
for.
Where do your ads appear?
They appear on our website, and our Inspiration Engine iPhone and iPad Apps. The
spots available are the #1, #6, #11, #16, #21, and #26.
Why are only those spots available?
We want the best user experience for brides – a site that is cluttered with ads
simply doesn’t keep her attention, however strategically placed
ads that are relevant to her original search term will increase the number of click
throughs that your ad will get.
Why do you increment by 5s?
On our Inspiration Engine iPhone and iPad Apps, we show brides 5 search results at a
time. When she goes to click on the “Show More
Articles†tab, the very next search result will be your ad. By placing
your ad in the first section of each set of search results, you’ll
have a much higher rate of click throughs.
Where does the click through go to?
It can go to your website, blog, storefront, wherever you’d like -
but the more relevant it is to the original search term, the better.
Reach more brides!
Our brides find us organically on Google through our extensive network of search
engine optimized pages, our iPhone and iPad Apps, via our strategic partnerships with
other wedding websites, and from editorial coverage including The Wall Street
Journal, Glamour.com, Portfolio.com, Investor’s Business Journal,
AMEX Open Forum, and more!
Brides are on our site to find YOU. They are actively searching for wedding
businesses and through our large network of hand curated wedding blogs for ideas on
how to plan her wedding.
Target the right bride in the right context:
Using the right keywords, we can match you up with the bride who is looking for you.
For example, if she is in the mindset of looking for inspiration boards on barn
weddings in San Diego, and your reception site is a barn in San Diego, your business
is exactly what she is looking for and the chances that she’ll
click on your ad increases.
How much does it cost?
Rates start at an affordable $50/Month with no commitments. Words and phrases are
available on a first come, first served basis. To reserve your words, contact us at: advertising@my-wedding-concierge.com
