Hello, beautiful ladies! We are back with more insights into Simer & Andres' wedding celebration. Just as we saw in the previous entry, this second installment starts with a romantic outdoor photoshoot that was captured thanks to the lens of Steve Koo Photography! And is just that having this beautiful couple in their elegant wedding attires, just a few minutes away from going to the ceremony that will unite their lives forever, who would not want to perpetuate this special moment? After this romantic and intimate photoshoot, it was time to head into the gardens of the Nasher Sculpture Center to start with the wedding ceremony that will mark the beginning of a lifetime of marriage for this lovely young couple. This ceremony was like a dream come true! The fantastic floral arrangements that Prashe created for this outdoor event, provided the perfect setting for this life-changing event! And we know that it is every bride's dream of looking like a princess on her big day, but this time, Simer exceeded all expectations and ended up looking like a complete queen after being glamorized by Jenny Torry Artistry. The beauty and romance that surrounded this event got us shedding a couple of tears of joy, and we cannot stop feeling so happy that Simer & Andres found each other! In the words of Simer: "Who better than your best friend, to be THE ONE". If you cannot get enough of this wedding ceremony, head into our gallery for more!
Dallas, TX Indian Fusion Wedding by Steve Koo Photography
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Andres and I met in medical school under the romantic background of coffee and anatomy. As we got to know each other I realized he was becoming my best friend and who better to be “the one” than that.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were in Galveston, Texas visiting his brother. We had planned to go on a morning run along the beach, which I tried to get out of because it was chilly outside. Eventually, he convinced me to go and along the way, there was a cardboard box with a puppy inside. On the puppy’s collar was a note saying his name was Ollie and the guy behind me had a question to ask. I turned around and there was Andres on one knee!
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.
Our first decision we made was to get a wedding planner because we were about to move to Chicago to start our residencies and knew planning a wedding in Dallas across the country would be hard. We met Meredith through a recommendation from a friend and everything after that was honestly pretty much easy! She got to know us and was able to make really personalized recommendations that fit our idea perfectly.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I entrusted that to my sister who was in India at the time. I knew I wanted traditional red for my Indian lengha and she designed the rest. It turned out perfectly. For my traditional American wedding dress me and my went dressing shopping alone after I had almost quit searching for one. Once I tried on the one we both knew instantly and got it on the spot.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Cake tasting, it was a dream come true for a sweet tooth like me.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think I everyone loved how we mixed our cultures throughout the night. Especially the mixes in music that our DJ, Dominic, played. It kept the dance floor packed the whole night.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Standing at the altar about half through our vows, church bells from a church across the street started playing and gave me goosebumps during an already priceless moment.
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
We did a lady sangeet at my parents' house the night before the wedding. It was as our way of showcasing as much of the vibrancy of Indian Wedding traditions into one night for us. The wedding reception we blended ou Mexican and Indian cultures through food and music. We had elotes during dinner, churros, chai, and kulfi for dessert. The music had mixed Latin songs with a dhol player playing.
Join us at the upcoming wedding reception, we are sure that you are going to love it!
