The story of Tulsi & Prashill's wedding is back! Held at the magnificent Rainwater Conference Center, their wedding was the epitome of a fairy tale brought to life. With the meticulous orchestration of Events by Nandani, every element seemed to whisper the couple's love story. Thanks to Floral Designs by Her, the air was perfumed with roses and marigolds. Tulsi was a vision in her Ejaaz Coutour bridal finery, and Bhindi Jewelers Atlanta adorned her with jewels that sparkled with the promise of forever love. Stringed Petals crafted exquisite flower jewelry, infusing a traditional charm that was nothing short of mesmerizing. Glam by Amber Bava worked its magic, draping her in elegance with bridal draping, sari tying, and styling that echoed the grandeur of an ancient romance. As the celebrations unfolded, Maa Vimla Catering tantalized the palates with a feast fit for royalty, every dish narrating the richness of South Asian cuisine. DJ Prince Chishty took over, turning the gathering into a jubilant dance of joy. And as Oak and Gold Studios weaved through the crowd, their lenses didn't just record; they immortalized the laughter, the tears, and the love that filled the room, crafting a cinematographic masterpiece that would allow one to relive the day over and over. Enjoy!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him through my high school friend's boyfriend, who was also his high school friend. He sent my Instagram handle. The moment I came home from work and saw my phone, it was full of a bunch of likes, so I also went and liked his pictures, but he only had 4. So I didn't want to seem too interested, so I only liked a couple. And he liked more of my pictures. So I messaged him, and he said he was returning the favor!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Our proposal was done with close friends and family. I told him where ever he did it. My sister had to be there! He made a plan when we went to visit my Sister in Jersey. We went to New York, and he had a proposal planned at the Edge. I was talking to him about this place and how I wanted to go there a few months prior to our proposal, and he made it happen!
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.
Planning part: It kind of got really hectic trying to juggle work and planning a full wedding at the same time! I turned to Nandani. I met her for the first time with my parents and Prashill and loved her! She made the whole experience less hectic. She replied to all the emails and set up all the appointments. She even ran through what was needed from me during those meetings with each vendor.
Shopping was very exciting. I ordered my wedding outfit from Ejaaz Couture, and for the rest of the events, I designed them. Shopping was exciting since my whole family was there sharing opinions and buying everything together for the wedding. At times, it was confusing since we didn't know what to pick and worried if it would match, but it all turned out amazing!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Wedding dress? I was always into weddings and always talked about my wedding. I looked on Instagram for suggestions, and I knew I was very detailed and I had to love every part of what I was wearing. For my wedding, I knew I wanted a red but not a bold red. I saw the Ejaaz outfit in one picture but didn't see anyone wearing it. I always had my mind on it, and when it came to the time when I had to choose, it always pulled me to the one that I saw a year prior.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part of the planning was executing, haha. I loved it when we got done picking vendors, and we only had to worry about the small things, like decor and how it was decorated, suggestions on the food, or shopping and making sure everything was purchased and ready to use.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guest enjoyed how well it was organized and went through without any hiccups. Usually, we would forget something. Nandani is so great at making sure that each detail is perfect. She remembers everything I wanted and exactly how I wanted things. I was worried that during the event and wedding days, they may need me for something, but Nandani knew how I would want that done, so she made sure it was done before any issues came to me.
The guests enjoyed the food, and everyone LOVED it!!! We had food served to guests almost four times a day, including snacks and drinks. My Food Caters were amazing; they stayed on top of everything.
Everyone enjoyed how well it was executed, and since we were on a time crunch, no one still felt rushed. It all happened on time, and everyone was able to enjoy it!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I was walking down the aisle, I almost cried! I knew I had to be strong since my dad was walking me down, and he would cry immediately! The pheras only happen once, so make sure to give each other the most time and walk very slowly!!
The last thing is when we fed each other the Pada and Kajukatri. We made sure to add a special touch of us to it. We are very playful yet caring, so we made sure to enjoy it!
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.
Sangeet was my favorite event other than the wedding, It was the first event together that both sides were able to mingle and enjoy. It was very special to see how both families were able to laugh and converse together.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Please take it easy. There are times when I would panic, but now, looking back at it, it's done! The planning and the shopping, the events are sometimes always so stressful that we forget that it's going to be done too quickly! Make sure to always look at each and know that this is your time spent together and the memories you create!
Join us in celebrating the beginning of more adventures, and may love continue to inspire us all.
