Today we share a tri-fold event that we had to spread out over three different posts featuring the photography works of Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema in our very own sunny California. This wedding was planned with gracefulness and glamour in mind by Touch of Elegance Event Planners alongside the bride’s very own sister-in-law. Cali’s premier bridal shop, Sari Palace, truly made Sukhvinder the belle of her own ball. The bride styled her own wedding outfit and wanted to add in the classy color of royal blue to keep in theme with the wedding colors. The bottom of the lengha was embraced in a deep coral shade that was a striking contrast with the royal blue. Hair was styled high to ensure that the offsetting dupatta was securely fastened in place. The bride posed for various shots with Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema before she made her big reveal. For a sneak peek of things to come, we have arranged all the photos in the gallery! As a bonus to this post, we have all the fun details from the bride herself down below!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We have known each other practically all of our lives. Our fathers were best friends; as a result our families knew each other really well. We never got together earlier as our romantic paths never crossed. We were both in other relationships and never looked at each other that way. Pavan was invited to our family party, that is when we first started to see each other as more than just family friends. We had such a great time at the party hanging out, dancing, etc.
I knew he was the one on our first date. He brought these 3 dozen long stem roses (which are still the picture when he calls my phone - to remind me of the day when I just knew he was the one). We went out to dinner and then dancing and the whole night was just simply put magical! I knew that day that this is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. I was immediately smitten with him and fall more in love with him as each day passes.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Pavan and his family surprised me at my parent's house. Everyone came over with sweets and he asked my dad for my hand in marriage... I was just sitting there shocked that this was happening! Then he turns around and gets on one knee in front of everyone and asks me to marry him. It was the best way he could have asked me... with the most important people in our lives there.
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
We got engaged in Dec 2016 and were trying to decide on a date for the wedding. Our lifeline and savor was my sister-in-law! She to put it in words was simply the most AMAZING assistance we could ever ask for. She found our venue, helped interview wedding planners, and make the most gorgeous and memorable day in our lives happen in less than month in half. Her amazing eye for detail and overall understanding our vision just made everything so easy. It goes to show you when it comes to wedding planning getting some help from family will help to relieve stress and make the whole process seamless. I felt bad at times because she took the stress and responsibility of planning everything the T.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I am the one bride that didn't want to plan my wedding... I know most brides look forward to that but i knew the stress and esp since we were doing it month and half after being engaged that I was not ready to take on the stress. So the best part was not planning it and having my most trustworthy family member do it for us. Truly grateful and thankful because if it wasn't for her.. we wouldn't have the most memorable event we could ever wish for with all the details planned to the T.
