Hello there, darlings! We know you loved Meeta & Aman's first look photoshoot, and you were dying to know more about all the beauty that surrounded their big wedding festivities! So, there is no need to keep on waiting because we are back with more details of this grand event. This time, we are taking you to the World's Fair Marina for you to take a peek at the wedding ceremony that united these betrothed in marriage. The halls of this exclusive venue transformed into a magical setting reminiscent of the interiors of an Indian palace, thanks to Prestigious Perfection, who created a marvelous decor that seemed almost surreal. Indeed, a more than perfect scenario for this life-changing event. Our gorgeous Maharani Meeta, lightened the room as she walked down the aisle dressed in a magnificent lengha from Arjun Arora Couture, very well complemented with the beautiful heels from Michael Kors. And no look is complete without a perfect makeup and hairstyle, so a big shoutout to Beauty By Tamanna for their outstanding work. And we cannot forget about the fabulous Mehndi designed by Henna by Yukti, which added an extra touch of traditional flair to Meeta's overall look! Simply Amazing! If you don't want to miss any detail of this magical ceremony, take a look at the marvelous shots captured by Ajit Photography, in today's gallery! You will love it!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through one of our mutual friends, when I met him he wasn't the type of a guy I thought I would end up marrying. I didn't know what I want in life. We started talking through snapchat and on our first meeting "alone" which was at Starbucks, my first line to him was "this is not a date and I'm not looking for a relationship." He understood me in a way that no one could. He knew what I was feeling and what I wanted/needed every time. We talked 24x7 yet I still didn't understand what our relationship was until months later.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Haha it was totally unexpected. One of his friend was getting married in November and he had told me that there's a special dinner that she invited us to (this is in September). SOO I was like okay I'll come with you (he had told me about this dinner end of July/August). During that weekend, I asked him should I get my nails done he's like yes and then I was like nahhhh it's just a dinner. He had told me to pick him up around 5 PM so I thought to myself that maybe he just wants to drink a little since it's his friend's wedding so I was like sure why not. It was a Sunday around 1 PM he really wasn't talking to me. I wore a casual mahroon dress and went to pick him up. He was matching me (which is usually always our thing). He told me that we need to go get something in his car so I was like okay (I'm thinking flowers or gift for his friend for this dinner). He blindfolds me when we get in the car. There are many things going on in my mind and so many questions that I kept asking him. I even asked him "are you proposing me, no wait you're not because you know I have to have my nails done for that, did you get a new car?" He's like yes that's it I got a new car. He made me get out of the car and I feel sand all around my heels and I asked him the car is at the beach? He said Yes. I could hear the waves/ocean and I can't swim so I asked him are we going in the water because I'm getting scared now. He's like relax. He told me to stand in a particular place and he said I'll be right back. Few minutes later I said "I hear music.." He tells me to remind my blindfold and I see him standing there few feet away past the alley that is filled with rose petals near the champagne table with I love You balloons held up against the table on the sand. He was standing in a huge heart filled with red sand outline with more rose petals in it and the song playing was Tum Hi Ho....that was the perfect moment. :)
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 February of 2019 few months after he proposed to me. I wanted this day to be perfect because we both knew that this will be one of the most important days of our lives. We decided to do mehndi/sangeet at my house because we wanted as much intimacy as possible between our families. We don't have a big family in New York and most of our relatives live back in India. We didn't hire any planner since we wanted to be involved as much as we can so we decided to do this together. We had an idea of how we wanted things to be but the hardest part was probably making a guest list and picking the venues. I'm so thankful to him for dealing with my indecisiveness and helping me throughout the journey. Picking my makeup/hair artist was easy because I knew that there would be no one better than Tamanna to do my makeup. When we went to visit World's Fair Marina for our wedding venue it happened to be the perfect setting because of it's location (right by the water - since Aman proposed to me at the beach). When we went to see Leonard's, there was no turning back. We did go to see many venues after that but my heart was set on Leonard's which Aman made it happen as well. Rest were the details. Since having done Antun's by Minar for our engagement we knew we had to do something best in terms of food and Benares was the best option. We had to pick Amit for DJ due to his awesomeness and how much people loved him from our engagement. It was really stressful. I wanted a traditional wedding and formal reception. For the wedding everyone wore indian attire (including all our guests).
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted to get a lehenga that my mom would like/her preference. We went to many stores in India. I knew I wanted a red/mahroon lehenga because that's my favorite cold and that's what my mom wanted as well. She was the one who picked my lehenga for me after I refused sooo many. I finally fell in love with this designer store in Shahpur Jat called Arjun Arora Couture. My mom loved the color/design on me and that's the one we picked. :)
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Going to see different vendors, interacting with them, and just knowing we were getting married. We enjoyed going to bridal expos and enjoying the food. Also, our families support was a major thing in the planning process.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
FOOD, Music, Decor, Everything. :)
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The morning of our wedding and our first look up to my Vidaai. All those moments were precious to me that hold a special place in my heart.
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 wanted to do a special dance and it worked out perfectly. Will post a video on our youtube channel soon. :)
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Relax and Enjoy those moments you spend planning for your wedding they are stressful but they won't come back.
