Should your partner be your best friend or your cheerleader? Luckily for Anmol and Ravipal, they found both! After a chance meeting at a Bhangra competition, this duo hit it off right away. Dating long distance ensued and then a magical moment led them down the aisle.
This couple loves to dance, so the Sangeet took a pivotal role in their celebration. Friends and family danced for them and allowed the wedding to feel very close and personal.
Not your typical traditional bride, Anmol knew she wanted red, but a modern version. Under the steady hands of Shamyal & Bhumika, she found the perfect lengha. Led by the team at Shaadi Destinations, the couple chose the Hotel Hard Rock in Los Cabos as the backdrop of their celebration. Expert vendors made the wedding seamless for guests, and the couple to enjoy. From fireworks to the sandy beaches, everything came together beautifully.
“I think having a destination wedding really allowed everyone to come together and get to know each other the whole week. It’s definitely a unique experience.
Congratulations Anmol & Ravipal!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met the Ravipal when we both were 21 years old! We went to a Bhangra Competition at UCLA. We had some mutual friends and hit it off right away! I lived in LA at the time and he lived in Sacramento. So we had years of experience of long distance! He became my best friend instantly, we were so much alike and always had so much fun together. Since then he has always been the first person I come to when I have something to share or if I need a pick me up. He has always been such a supportive person and we are each other’s best friends and cheerleaders!
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 wedding planning experience was great! It was definitely a lot less stressful than we thought it would be and that is because of the amazing planners, travel agency, photographer and videographer we had! JC Castillo made wedding planning for us very easy! He has a lot of experience with weddings in Mexico and gave us great advice about the decorations, flowers, etc! Shaadi destination was the travel agency we used and they made choosing Hard Rock Hotel Los Cabos as our wedding venue an easy option! They also made the booking process very seamless for us and our guests! I went through styling trio for my hair and they did a phenomenal job! Tiffany Simons did my make up! I knew I could trust her as she had done my make up before! Her make up skills are beyond amazing! Everything came together so well and it was all so organized!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted a red lengha! But I didn’t want it to be very traditional! My mom found a red wedding lengha that was perfect from Shamyal Bhumika and they made the process very easy! It came out perfect! For Ravis outfit, we went through well groomed and they matched it to my outfit perfectly!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved how organized everything was! Everyone loved the fireworks! We got so many compliments about how everything came together so well and how organized the whole wedding week was!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think our favorite moments were really seeing how much our close friends and family really got to enjoy the whole process! I think having a destination wedding really allowed everyone to come together and get to know each other the whole week. It’s definitely a unique experience.
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 had our families do a dance at the lady sangeet. My family and my husbands family did a cute dance, which allowed the sangeet to be very personalized.! Then Ravipal and I did a dance as well, which we had been preparing for quite some time and allowed us to incorporate some of our favorite songs.! Our bridesmaids and groomsmen also did a dance at the reception! It was so special! Ravi incorporated my favorite song, one directions what makes you beautiful! Our close friends and family were really able to be part of the celebrations!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I would definitely say not to stress about the small things! Everything will come together and look beautiful at the end! And the best part, you’ll be married to your best friend!
