Detroit, MI Indian Wedding by Irvin Sidhu Fine Art Photography Studio

Welcome back, darlings! Every single event surrounding these lovebirds' wedding festivities has been amazingly beautiful, and their reception party was no exception. This grand event held at the striking MGM Grand Detroit and conceptualized by Utsav Planners, Inc., was the best way to end the wedding festivities with a bang! The luxurious halls of this venue offered the perfect setting for Snehal & Sudhir to celebrate this life milestone! But what is a celebration without music? So, we are excited to know that this highly anticipated gala transformed into a full-flair party, thanks to DJ Micky Singh and DJ Nimz Entertainment! They took the wheel for the musical department, setting the dancefloor on fire and putting everyone on their feet playing the latest Bollywood hits! The only time the attendees stopped dancing was to enjoy the delicious plates cooked by Punjab Indian Cuisine, who impressed everyone showcasing their talent and expertise in the form of mouth-melting flavors that everyone loved! In between dancing and chatting, the night was coming to an end, but there was still time to have a bite at the sweet cake baked by MGM Grand Detroit. Relive this entire celebration in today's gallery by taking a look at all the shots captured by Irvin Sidhu Fine Art Photography Studio!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We have the world of yoga to thank for allowing us to meet! I have been going to Thrive Hot Yoga in Farmington Hills for many years and became friends with Linda Kay during one of the yoga center's Mexico retreats. Linda's friend, Mara Hoffert, is best friend's with the groom, and mentioned to Linda that he was looking to meet a nice Indian woman. Linda and Mara set us up on our first date and we took it from there! There was no specific moment that led me to know he was "the one." Rather, it was over many special moments that told me that he loved me and I loved him.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
When we started dating, we liked to go for walks at local parks. On our third date, we decided to go to the Novi Tree Farm and met in the Novi Emagine parking lot before going there together. As we started the walk, Sudhir mentioned that it was getting dark and that maybe we can go on the trail some other time. However, I said we would be okay. Before we knew it, the Tree Farm was completely dark and we got lost! We ended up getting out of the park and then walked toward a bright light. The bright light ended up being the Novi Emagine parking lot where we had left Sudhir's car! As we walked back to Emagine, I was worried that Sudhir would be upset with me since he mentioned the darkness before we started the walk. However, he was very nice about it and I felt so happy not to be yelled at. We ended up sitting on a bench outside of Emagine and shared our first real kiss while talking about what transpired.
 
When Sudhir was ready to propose, we went to see Free Solo at Emagine and after the movie took a walk to the same bench outside of Emagine. He asked me to recall what happened the last time we were there. Then he got down on one knee and proposed to me on the same spot.
 
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 wanted our wedding to be in a central location which could accommodate our guests without having to require transportation to events. We also knew we needed to have an experienced and accomplished wedding planner. My sister-in-law had used Rupali Bedi from Utsav Planners for her wedding and were fortunate to have her available to help plan our wedding.  Rupali and her team recommended the MGM Grand due to its excellent facilities, including large ballroom and spacious hotel rooms. The service provided by the MGM Grand was excellent in all regards! Rupali worked very closely with my mother-in-law and mother to ensure both Gujurati and Konkani styles were incorporated in designing the wedding weekend. We had excellent catering through Mohit Dhawan at Punjab Cuisine in Auburn Hills. Mohit was very easy to work with and able to accommodate any of our requests. We also had great floral designs and centerpieces provided by Christopher and his team at Christopher's Personal Touch in Commerce Township. Rupali and her team did a great job coordinating all of the vendors we used and made sure the venue looked spectacular with many of their authentic Indian items. Our wedding outfits were purchased in India when our families traveled there in the fall. My Sangeeth and bridal makeup was done by Christine Azzo.  My hair styling for the weekend and reception makeup and saree draping was done by Vandana Gupta of The Vandana Beauty Center in Rochester Hills. For the reception, we had a beautiful ice sculpture of a dancing couple by Ice Dreams Sculptures from Plymouth. We had two excellent DJs for the wedding weekend.  DJ Mickey Singh performed at the Sangeeth while DJ Nirmal Pathak led our wedding reception. Finally, we had excellent photography from Irvin Sidhu and videography from Everlasting Moments, both based in Canada.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved how well planned the entire wedding weekend turned out. Everyone appreciated that all the events were at the MGM Grand and did not have to travel back and forth in the city. Everyone enjoyed the delicious food for each event. Punjab Cuisine provided the Indian food and MGM Grand catered some American food and the reception desserts, which were amazing!  Our friends and family also mentioned how everyone was very nice and friendly. Everyone had a great time! My mother-in-law was such a great help and inspiration during the planning of the wedding. She is the main reason everything went so smoothly! My mother and sisters were very supportive throughout this time too.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance as husband and wife is the moment that I replay in my mind every day.  We spent months choreographing and practicing the dance with our teacher, Fernando Caducio. We executed the dance perfectly during the reception! It was such a special moment for us.

See you tomorrow, ladies! Have an awesome rest of the day!
