Happy Fri-yay, Maharanis! As you know, 2021 has given us the most incredible entries, love has been present on every feature, and today, I am eager to share this year's last love story, Esha & Henil's. This gorgeous couple celebrated their love at a cozy yet elegant venue, Marigold Banquets. This place is the perfect combination between elegance and rustic and modern architecture. Those details, accompanied by the luxurious decor by Tradition and Trends, made this wedding an unforgettable one! We all know every event deserves attention to detail, professionalism, and, most importantly, passion. Events By Srishti have all of these, and our lovebirds couldn't find a better team to plan and design their most important day. The newlyweds were all about pampering their guests! That is why they had Medley Entertainment to make everyone feel their love through music and Luxe Event Group to make everyone dance all night long. I think both teams did a great job! As you can see, our lovely Maharani, the handsome groom, and their guests had the time of their lives! My dears, it is time to mention how charming the bride looked during her big day. Esha looked phenomenal thanks to the delicate yet beautiful hair and makeup done by Maliha Khan MakeUp and a very detailed Mehndi art by Tejal. Henil couldn't take his eyes off of the love of his life, and we know why! We all can agree they will live happily ever after, and you can see this through the pictures Fine Art Production captured. They did a fantastic job, and we applaud them! Maharanis, check out the gallery we've put together for you! And don't forget that 2022 will bring more romantic love stories!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my Groom through a family friend and we started talking and dating casually. As time passed, we realized that we share the same ideology and the mutual respect for each other was on point. I loved the way he noticed little things that I liked or disliked, and did everything for me without asking. He blended so well with all my family members and took care of me as his princess. I knew he was the one, at the very beginning of our relationship. He used to his Masters in Scranton University, so one day for the first time I went to drop him off at his place. That day he invited me inside and cooked some delicious food (AKA "Poha") after driving him back for 2 hours. On my way back, he stayed on the phone call with me the entire time until I made it back home. That is when I realized that he was the one and that he will always take care of me and keep me happy!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Omee took me to California to visit his family for the first time. It was during that time, he took me to a surprise helicopter ride during sunset in Los Angeles as it was my first time visiting California. It was during that ride, he got on his knees and proposed to me near the HOLLYWOOD sign and I said "YES". Then we landed and celebrated with a bottle of champagne.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Initially, when I imagined getting married, I always wanted to wear a traditional red lengha. When it was turn for me to get married, I went to India and went shopping for my wedding outfit. I tried on many different red lenghas but none of them clicked with me! I went to Kathputli, the store where I bought my lengha looking for a red length however, my eyes landed on a pinkish shade lengha which I fell in love with as soon as I saw it! I tried it on and I knew that this would be my wedding lengha.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
There are many enjoyable parts of the wedding planning process such as creating my own wedding website from scratch, creating the invitations, decorating the house, and etc. The most enjoyable part was, the family gatherings we had starting 2 months before our wedding. We used to meet up every weekend as my dad's and mom's side of the family were preparing a dance for our Sangeet Night. My mom's side family ended up creating a personalized Sanedo based on my and Omee's relationship. The best part was getting together and everyone enjoying the process and making it feel like a nostalgic Indian wedding environment.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For Brides-to-be, I would say that enjoy the entire process from the time you start planning the wedding to the time you get married. There will be times, that you will get stressed but at the end of the day, it is all worth it! One other advice I would give is to do a BARAAT as a bride too! It is an amazing experience. This is something I ended up doing and I really enjoyed the entire experience with my family. It was fun to experience all the family members from both the bride and groom's side come together and celebrate the Baraat!
Maharanis, we say goodbye to 2021 but we invite you to keep coming for more 2022 love stories!
