After dating long-distance for over six years, Jasmin and Aakash finally have their happily ever after! The duo's luxe-filled big day was the culmination of their love story. So, after delaying their 2020 wedding, they finally sent out the invites expertly created by The Royal Collection to make it happen almost a year later! With the help of one of the best wedding professionals Urvashi Mishra Wedding Planner, they threw their luxe celebration at the legendary The Legacy Castle. The lavish interiors were the setting for their beautiful ceremony and accommodated their vast guest list for their elegant reception. Jasmin and Aakash decided to see each other before the ceremony. Their first look came as Aakash dropped thousands of rose petals from a helicopter (Yes, a HELICOPTER!) during the baraat procession! He also chartered a fleet of luxury cars provided by Monaco Exotics for his groomsmen could enter the ceremony in big style. This baraat really had us hooked! Maharani Jasmin was breathtaking and turned heads as she walked down the aisle! I love how she finished the look with exquisite jewelry that included a lovely Kaleera design and flawless hair and makeup by Cinderella Bridez! They promised each other forever under a dramatic floral mandap and later danced the night away with their closest friends and family in a gorgeous extravaganza thanks to Elegant Affairs. They created a natural and serene setting with cherry blossom trees, magnificent floral arrangements, and candlelights. When they look back on their wedding day images, this two will know it was everything they wanted and will evoke all the emotions lived. Thankfully, fine art photo artist Ivash Photography captured this luxe bash with a candid or natural approach so Jasmin and Aakash could cheerish themforever.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were in a long distance relationship for 6 years. He was in California and I was in New Jersey. We had a 3 hour time difference. However he put in a lot of effort coming to see me every few months. In total we've taken over 40 flights, spent over 400 hours flying and travelled over 40,000 miles. I knew he was the way when I saw how he cared for his family and then eventually mine. He's very self sacrificing and family means the world to him. I knew one day I could easily build a family with him since we both have the same priorities in life. He exudes confidence and navigates through the most difficult situations with ease. He's levelheaded and maintains a strong positive mindset. As corny as it sounds, it sometimes feels like he's a prince out of a fairytale movie because he's got a solution for anything and everything in life! He doesn't give up easy in life so I knew he would never give up on our relationship no matter the distance and difficulties.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Aakash and I wanted to go on a family vacation so both sides of the family can get to know one another even better and make lifelong memories. I knew the plan was to rent a yacht and spend a day at Sea in Mexico. What I did not know was that he planned on proposing to me on that yacht. We were doing a family photoshoot on the yacht and somehow he managed to trick me into believing we're going to do solo shots. So I waited by the edge of the yacht facing the Sea and when I turned out he was on his knees with a ring. I will never forget that moment. He's someone who you'll never see cry in a lifetime, hardly shows a vulnerable soft side to anyone and that day when he proposed he shed a few tears trying to explain how much I mean to him. Some moments in life you just can't put into words. Would love to share those photos if needed!

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 started planning the wedding in 2019 and originally did most of the shopping in India and set the wedding date in June 2020. However the pandemic happened in March 2020 and from there on, our wedding kept getting rescheduled multiple times. We came up with new dates several times and finally set on Monday July 26 2021. So much time went by from when we bought out wedding clothes in 2019 so I purchased all wedding outfits all over again from New Jersey. I still have original wedding lehenga that I never wore. Who knows I'll use for a vow renewal haha. But a lot of the vendors and venues were getting booked up so we had to settle for a Monday wedding. Our wedding Planner Urvashi made sure we had the best team of decorators, caterers, DJs, make up working with us. Every category she ensured it was the best choice for us.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved that Aakash being a groom personally oversaw everything at the wedding, he checked in with everyone personally to make sure they're enjoying the occasion. Everyone loved the fleet of luxury cars Aakash got all his groomsmen to drive in for his baraat and loved his entry in a helicopter!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I got ready as a bride and walked into the terrace of Legacy Castle, I heard the helicopter sound and my heart started beating fast. I knew it was him but what I did not was that he was going to shower us with roses. I always replay the moment of looking at the sky, with roses falling from above and the sound of his helicopter. Felt like a Bollywood movie. 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.From my proposal in Mexico, to the pre wedding shoot in Death Valley Dessert in California to the wedding shopping in India & New Jersey to the bridesmaids proposal in NYC and finally to the wedding in Legacy Castle, New Jersey we've made memories all! I loved that we were able to customize our wedding outfits with our names engraved my wedding veil and Aakash's sherwani sleeve.
