Happy Friday, darlings! We want to end this week with a flourish by sharing Namrata & Prabjeet's intimate wedding celebration. And we are sure you are going to love it so much! After exploring and enquiring about a gazillion hotels and resorts, photographers, and makeup artists across India, they found the perfect vendors to make the wedding of their dreams come to life. But little they knew that that nature had a big surprise for them, and Coronavirus was declared a pandemic. This unexpected situation called for a change of plans, and Namrata & Prabjeet had to make a big decision. They could wait a little longer and postpone their big day, or they could embrace change and get married on the same date they initially planned. Luckily, they decided to carry on with their wedding, making arrangements to comply with the pandemic's safety and security measurements. Despite all changes, Namrata & Prabjeet's wedding was absolutely beautiful and inspiring! They gathered their closest family members and opened a zoom meeting for all relatives and friends that couldn't join them physically. The result was impressive beyond words! Our blushing Maharani looked drop-dead gorgeous thanks to Parul Garg, who took care of her makeup, praising her innate beauty and making her look like a princess. No wonder why Prabjeet couldn't take his eyes off of her! As you scroll down through the fabulous shots captured by Story Monk, you'll soon realize why we loved this wedding so much. It packs tons of beauty, traditions, and above all, lots of love! So get ready to enjoy today's gallery in full. It will take your breath away, not to mention that you'll get tons of inspiration from it!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We dated for a decade before taking the decision of tying the knot. This crazy boy while asking me out had mentioned casually that "if it's there it's forever, else it's not there" I was merely 18 and I didn't pay too much attention to it then. But, the way he's taken care of me, been there for me, been my best friend through the time we've been together made it clear that there is nobody on this planet who has the patience and unconditional love for me other than him!

You know what charm is: a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question
I obsessed over this day since forever, planned it, dreamt about it but when the day actually came...I could do nothing except smile and laugh like an idiot
That's what you do! Sweep me off my feet and make me so extremely happy that I have no words left.
I'm so lucky to have you in my life and call you mine.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
After hours and days of searching took an appointment in Meena Bazaar and started sifting through their collection...
This particular outfit was a 2 piece lehenga choli hidden in the corner of the second floor shelves where all the bridal sets are. Intrigued by the unique color shade I asked the usher help me with it and boy it was love at first sight... originally it was a 2 piece set but since I always wanted to wear a one piece/sharara I got it customized to my liking. I was a bit hesitant but all my anxieties were taken care of by everyone there.
Absolutely loved the staff and the collection. Thank you so much for making our day so special
Doli outfit from Veera Designs: Sonia khurana from Veera designs is a fabulous person. Even though her staff hadn't come back till 1st June, she made sure to keep me calm and help me with the best outfit possible. We showed her the design of what we wanted and she made the exact replica of it...got the embroidery done in 2 days and voila.. both sunny and I loved wearing our outfits and we're sure we will be able to wear it again in future!!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
We were in it together and nothing else mattered.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The casual, happy, informal setup
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
1. While the raagis were singing the hymns, we had our own non stop chitter chatter going on. It definitely got a lot of stares but again we were in it together!
2. When I entered under the phoolon ki chadar, it wasn't only with my brother's but also my dog Casper who is an integral part of our small family.
3. My grandmother, even though she couldn't come but she read our pheras on zoom and I am always indebted to her for giving us the best gift.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Have a wonderful weekend, ladies. See you on Monday for more!
