Happy Monday, beautiful Maharanis! We missed you during the weekend, and we are excited to be back with more energy to continue sharing amazing stories with all of you! So, let's wait no more and get ready to unveil today's love story featuring Mohni & Balpreet's wedding celebration. We are sure you will love it! We are starting our journey through this fabulous wedding celebration by joining our two lovebirds at their colorful Sangeet held at Royal Albert's Palace. This joyful event was the perfect start for this real-life fairytale, and we absolutely loved Mohni's gorgeous look, featuring an exquisite lengha from Nazranaa. After the pre-wedding events, it was time to head over to the Dashmesh Darbar Gurdwara for the Sikh wedding ceremony that united these two in marriage. We are sure that more than one of the guests dropped a tear of joy when seeing our lovely Mohni walking down the aisle! She looked breathtaking in her elegant and fashionable Lengha from Raghav Creations. Ramanpreet Kaur complemented this head-turning look with sleek makeup and hairstyle designs that still have us sighing. And we cannot forget about the incredible Mehndi by Henna by Pallavi, which took Mohni's look to the next level. Without any question, this winning combo provided a well-balanced combination of tradition, elegance, and beauty to the overall look. The final result: A dreamy look that exceeded all expectations!

The good friends from Prime House Productions shared the shots taken during this event, and we've put them all together for your enjoyment. And believe us, every single image is a visual delight you don't want to miss. So wait no more and get ready to be amazed by this wedding!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband Balpreet and I actually first met through Facebook. Back then Facebook was the main source of social media and the norm of being on the site 24/7. We were both in the middle of our first semester of college and decided to meet up at an event happening nearby. We talked in-person for about 5 minutes but we both left smiling. We haven't stopped talking since!
I don't have an exact time of when I knew my husband was "the one" - I just knew. He became such an important part of my life that I just couldn't not see him in it.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My husband proposed to me in August of 2019! It was actually the day of our rokha, but before the event started he told me to get ready and sent an Uber to my house (which was very far from NYC). We both met around Central Park and walked towards Bethesda Fountain and he got down on one knee and proposed! It was perfect. His brother and sister-in-law were there as well with flowers and he had a photographer ready for an intimate photoshoot after.
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.
Once we were set on a date, we finalized venues immediately. That was our biggest concern. We then sought out after the perfect decorators and DJ within our budgets and had them booked as well. However, we planned on getting married in May of 2020, but the pandemic hit and we had to postpone. Thankfully the second date we chose which was in September of 2020 - things were starting to open up (venues were increasing the amount of people allowed) so it actually worked out. All the venues we had picked for the events were super accommodating and were available for our new date. My hair and makeup artist that I had for all my events actually wasn’t available for the original date so I had to book someone else, but when I found out she was available in September I booked her immediately. Everything fell into place and it was amazing!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I’ve always known that I wanted to wear the traditional deep red to my wedding so I was super excited to go shopping for my wedding outfits in India! The day before my flight was scheduled to depart, all Visas and flights to India were stopped due to the pandemic. It was a huge bummer. It was hard trying to find outfits online in the middle of everything being shutdown.
I was actually scrolling through TikTok when I came across Raghav Designs page - and I remembered I saved one of their videos months ago of a bridal lengha that I fell in love with. I searched for it, found a few more on his page that I liked and sent it to my family in our WhatsApp group. Without telling them which one I absolutely loved, they all chose that exact same one! I contacted them and that was it. It came out perfect.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning became hectic because rules and regulations due to the pandemic kept changing weekly. We weren’t sure how everything would pan out, but in the end it all worked out. I think planning the small details with my husband - such as party favors, songs that needed to be played, and helping him choose his outfits were so much fun! Having both our families help plan was such a help! Shopping for jewelry with my three sisters and running errands every other day is what makes all of it so memorable.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I’m pretty sure the highlight of the wedding week for both of our families and friends would have to be our Sangeet night. It was the first wedding in the midst of the pandemic and no one had really seen each other in so long. Mix that with an open bar, good food, and lots of dancing.. no wonder it was a hit!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My favorite part of the wedding was when I walked down the “aisle” with my parents and then seeing Balpreet for the first time after sitting down. I was nervous, but not too nervous, and after seeing him it just went away!
What a great way to start the week! Make sure to join us tomorrow for a new love story.
