McLean, VA Sikh Wedding by Photographick Studios
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We matched on a dating site and it took Jasmit a whole year to finally message me lol Once he did though, things progressed effortlessly. We both made time to meet each other regularly and got to spend a lot of time together. There was not one moment that stands out but every single day I spent with him made me fall more in love with him. He is truly a kind, selfless and caring person. We both got along great and things just fell into place.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Despite Jasmit’s secrecy regarding the proposal, I was on to his scheme. I played along with the game and purposely dressed down that day to throw him off. He persisted nonetheless and guided me up the 300+ steps to scenic Piazza de Michelangelo overlooking Florence, Italy. I smiled and continued the ascent to the overlook. Jasmit proceeded to consider potential proposal locations while a violinist just happened to be playing the most romantic song (Not planned at all). He finally settled a on a bushy secluded area await for the mirad of tourists. There he nervously got on one knee, fumbled the ring while I laughed and blushed uncontrollably. Yes was the response as any other answer would have resulted in a most awkward descent back to Florence.
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 didn't have much time to plan which ended up being a great thing. We were decisive and checked things off our list pretty quickly. Thankfully, my best friend is Sarah khan of Sarah khan event styling and she was helpful from day one from recommending venues to cake vendors. Photographick was highly recommended by many of our friends so he was the first person we booked. Within in a month after that we had the dj, caterer and venues booked as well. I took a 7 day trip to India with my mother and Masi and an 1 hour after landing in Delhi, I had finalized my wedding ceremony lehnga. Jasmit and I have pretty similar taste in style so he left most of the details up to me to pick. That included all of his wedding outfits and the decor for the entire wedding.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I originally had light pink in mind inspired by Anushka Sharma's wedding lehnga. However, when I actually started trying on lehngas, the brighter colors caught my eye more. I did know that I wanted a floral theme though and found the perfect bright pink floral lehnga very quickly.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Both of our families are from the same area so it was really nice to plan our wedding close to home.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Probably Jasmit's dance performance at the Sangeet.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Rhere were so many! We had a lot of smaller events at home and it was really special to be able to celebrate with close family before the big events.
We hope you have a great weekend! See you on Monday!
