Good morning, beautiful ladies! It's Friday again, and this time we are not only finishing a new week, but we are also ending the month of October. So, we decided to do something special for you! Today, we'll be taking at the intimate and awe-inspiring wedding between Kausar & Fahad, and believe us; this is one wedding celebration you don't want to miss. So, let's get right into it! This intimate wedding took place during COVID, so different arrangements had to be made to comply with the safety measurements. Still, the ceremony ended up being beautiful as enchanting, thanks to 2Create Designs, who planned, designed, and decored this entire wedding bash. They transformed the family's backyard into a mesmerizing setting overflowing with beauty, elegance, and traditional flair, and we cannot stress how much we loved every bit of it. Our blushing Maharani looked drop-dead gorgeous thanks to Peace Love Sakina, who designed and exquisite makeup and hairstyle for Kausar's big day. The nude colors, combined with the on-point contour, praised her innate beauty and made her look like a goddess. And we want to give a big shoutout to Wedding Aperture for the fantastic shots they captured throughout the different moments of this wedding celebration. Each image is even more impressive than the one before, and we absolutely loved them. But don't take my word; check it out for yourself in today's full gallery. It is the best way to start getting ready for the weekend!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him through a common friend and he added me on Facebook. Vishesh was trying to play the cupid, but things turned around and we started talking a lot more. It was long distance - I was in America and he was in Mumbai, India. There was no intention of dating because we are two very different people - he's the mischievous one and I'm calmer. But as they say, destiny played its role. It all started with phone calls, skype (Trust me, I have ditched him so many times initially), BBM (old school days) before we had what's app calls, etc. I think it was 2012 Valentines Day, he bought me a rose on skype and we video called for 6-7 hours that's when we knew we liked each other and realized we are dating. I saw him for the first time in April 2012 and we've never looked back. We'd meet every 4-5 months - but we never questioned each other if it was worth it, we knew it was! 2 years ago he moved to the States for his Master's degree and I moved to medical school but the 4-hour flights are better than the 16-hour ones. Its been 8.5 years of togetherness, and we've never been so sure of something and decided to get married. So it took a friend request, 8 years of long-distance, virtual dates, and a strong belief in our love to be where we are today.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We used to talk a lot, became friends, and realized we are dating each other. We've traveled a lot together including visiting the most romantic place in this world - Paris and he still hasn't proposed, but there's no way he's getting out of this - I'm still waiting for it and it's got to be fondue-levels of cheesiness!. 
 
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 had about 3 months roughly in our hands to plan the entire wedding and choose the vendors. I have my little puppy and wanted to make sure he was allowed at the venue. After a lot of research, we found Regal Banquets, NJ that allowed my puppy inside the venue. Since it was a fusion wedding, we went with the western formal theme of dresses and suits. My mom is a professional hair & makeup artist so I knew I wanted her to do my hair and make-up. My outfit was picked from India and his outfit was from Hugo Boss and Burberry. We decided for the Dholi at the last minute and luckily he was available. My husband didn't want a layered cake so we went with three different flavored cakes - chocolate, pineapple, carrot set next to each other. I knew the DJ beforehand from my other parties, and he knew the taste of music we had and stuck to it. My aunt officiated our wedding, which made it special. It was all my parents and my husband who finalized everything for the D-Day because I was in medical school. All in all I would say, we were happy and thankful to the vendors for helping us get through the day. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was in medical school and couldn't go to India so my parents and aunt went to Mumbai, India to shop for the wedding dress. As a child, I always wanted a Sabyasachi outfit. Since this was a fusion wedding, I decided to go the non-traditional way and opt for a gown with a long trail and veil. I was definitely hesitant to go with the purple color because it's not often you see this on brides, but after a lot of convincing, I chose the deep purple color. I saw the outfits over FaceTime and trusted my mom and aunt for sizing and other minor details. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
With limited time in hand and me not being around, we had to do everything quickly, but the most lovable part was disclosing the wedding announcements to our family and friends.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We had the dholi at the wedding to which people danced. He entertained all the guests and to a point everyone was on the dance floor. 
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Unlike most Indian weddings, we decided to have a small fusion wedding with 50 people for now with just our close friends and family who flew from different destinations. It made the ceremony more special and meaningful and we got to spend time and enjoy with our loved ones. We danced on the song Raabta, which is our song from our dating days. 
 
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.
A day before the ceremony we had a Couple's Shower and Mehendi at my parent's backyard. It was a Hawaiian theme so we decorated everything with leaves, shacks, and coconuts. The guests were in summer floral shirts and dresses. Vishesh and I opted to wear something indowestern to stand out in the crowd. I opted for floral jewelry to go with my outfit. We had games, dancing, cake cutting, and live BBQ. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It will all be fine. Just take a deep breathe in. Relax and go with the flow and enjoy the moment because you're not going to have it back again. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I opted for the wedding jewelry from Tyaani Jewelry by Karan Johar in Mumbai, India. It is a real polki set with uncut diamonds in baby pink and for my hands, I opted to wear my grandmother's heritage gold bangles. For the cake, we did fresh edible orchids that matched the decor and our outfits. Since it was a fusion wedding, we had the garland exchange ceremony, kanyadaan, and a sand ceremony - a tradition we decided to go for where I put a color of sand and Vishesh put his color of sand to signify our individuality and together we put a third color of sand to signify us coming together and blending in with each other.

Have a great rest of the day, darlings, and don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Two years ago we were introduced by a common friend at some social gathering but i didn’t remember that introduction at all. So the next time my husband saw me was at a party.. he walked right up to me on the dance floor and acted like he was my best friend. I was like - who is this guy again? And then thought to myself "What the hell..  he’s cute, let’s explore! ” We got along like a house on fire and that very same night we spoke for three hours. After that we went on several creative creative dates and before we knew it we were officially dating. They're absolutely correct when they say " the right person will walk into your life & you'll have no idea from where he’ll come from" - mine literally walked up to me!
My experience was truly mystic and magical. Marriages really are made in heaven.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was straight out of a movie! We had gone to Bangkok for the weekend, to celebrate the sale lf his company in India. We extended the trip 3 times and stayed 14 days, because we just couldn't get enough of partying and spending time together. On the second last day he tells me that he's booked us for dinner at a really nice restaurant. Unsuspectingly I went along, it was on a boat and beautifully done up. The boat docked in front of a Buddhist temple and he asked me to come uo to take a look. Then and tehre he went down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I was in tears, while everyone else on the boat was cheering. It was even more meaningful because I practice Budhism and he decided to do it in front of a Budhist temple which was lit up fully at night. The view and the proposal left me speechless.
 
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.
So blessed to have had the most surreal, intimate and beautiful wedding on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.
 
Exchanging vows on the ocean front along with a picture perfect view of the sunset, amongst the few people who love you the most - this truly was a fairy tale wedding.
 
As a true Delhi girl I always expected a big fat Indian wedding, but I knew that these challenging circumstances wouldn't allow that for a long time to come. Sometime in the 2nd week of June our parents decided to not wait indefinitely and go ahead with a traditional Hindu ceremony here in Hawaii- where all of us have been spending our lockdown. With just 2 weeks in hand we managed to organize both our outfits from New Delhi - fortunately I had brand new one which I'd bought earlier for my sisters wedding & for Rohan we actually did a video call with the designer and I took the measurements. The forces of the universe conspired to make this wedding flawless - outfits were tailored on time, couriers reached on time, we found a learned priest here in Hawaii, a venue with a view thats breathtaking, a talented hair artist who was available - trusted & with full safety measures, jewelry from his aunt whose based on this island, chura and mangalsutra flew in from LA, the best and most well-known team of photographers & videographers here and most importantly - perfect pleasant weather with no rain! Thankfully my husband's aunt here is a wedding planner - she was super resourceful with full attention to detail on every aspect.
The video team on my instructions had dedicated one person to take care of the zoom call using the stand that was organised. Watching my loved ones who had dressed up for the occasion virtually & taking their blessings was an incredible experience. I'm no make up expert, but somehow that day I did it perfectly - a look that soft, feminine, flirty, elegant yet a bit glamorous.. Apt for a day wedding. In my experience, a lot has to do with being happy within and as a bride your face just glows with joy, I didnt miss having a makeup artist at all!
 
With just 10 people physically present and several others there virtually - I enjoyed every moment of my wedding . Every moment sank in slowly and I lived/absorbed all of it with no chaos around, only the sound of waves :)
 
The one thing that we were all very particular about was that every vendor had to wear a mask, every surface/tool/gadget we touched was sanitized, we had sanitizer bottles everywhere. We also ensured that the family members attending as well as the ither vendors had been taking adequate safety measures a few days before the wedding. We didnt want to let our guard down for even one day - small risks could endanger someone's health and that would be terrible, as a result of this joyous occasion.
 
For everyone out there whose having a lockdown wedding - you should totally be on cloud nine, its your big day and your intimate wedding can be the most meaningful one if you're happy on the inside. Also, now with so many ideas out there its totally worth it to get a wedding planner as theres so much you can do!
Eg. Your bridesmaids can co ordinate their dress for zoom
 
- You can send out wedding favors/gifts with props for the call
 
- Favours can be sent after the wedding I had this organized in New Delhi. Sent a hamper of Royce chocolates with a personalized note to the extended family.
 
The zoom/e invite can be nicely drafted.
 
Milnis and other ceremonies on zoom
 
Personalized masks and sanitizer bottle covers.
 
And lots more! Get creative 
 
Believe me, theres nothing like marrying the one you love amongst the people who really matter - its blissful, its joyful and an experience you ll never forget.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Fortunately for me I had a brand new heavy bridal lehenga by Siddharth Tytler lying with me in Delhi. I had bought it a few years agi for my sisters wedding and didn't end up wearing it, because I bought so many more! The shopaholic that I am :)
With such a short notice and during these challenging times it was impossible to get a lehenga in Hawaii. Hence I had this one couriered. I was quite sure it wont reach on time and was planning a back up outfit. But to my surprise the parcel came within a week and I could wear that lovely red bridal lehenga. It's true, you really do feel like an Indian bride once you're all dressed, and the traditional red lehenga has a huge role to play in that.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
R. It's like an exciting project! I think I had the best time choosing the venue. Because we were getting married on this beautiful island, every location was stunning. It was going to be a small intimate wedding and hence I wanted the best view. The venue, the flowers, the decor and figuring out a zoom display. All of it was fun, unique, unexpected and quite an adventure
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The fact that it was only family and as loved ones they could be a part of every moment, absorb everything thats going on. They coyld bless us and witness every ceremony peacefully. This is what got everyone very emotional and I had a momemt of realization - that this is what a wedding ceremony should be like. With large weddings a lot of my friends barely remember the rituals/traditions followed because there's so many people, so many thoughts in your head.. Its chaotic. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moments when neither my husband nor I could understand what the priest was saying as he was talking in Sanskrit and my prankster husband decides to say/do things to amuse us. Several times we were caught giggling on camera during a very serious ceremony. I'll never forget that, for me those were the moments I decided that we are now going to be together forever..
 
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.
For me it was all in one day! Starting from the chura, baraat, my entry as a bride, the hindu wedding ceremony, the griha pravesh, muh dikhai and the celebrations with some bubbly.
I was fortunate to be able to have all the ceremonies despite my challenging circumstances. I got married in Hawaii,
my Lehenga came from India, my Chura came from LA, I had worn my husband's aunts jewelry, did my own make up, the decor was stunning, the food was fabulous and the videographers were the most co operative as the had to keep on eye on the zoom video telecast too. All the vendors that we worked with were so helpful, they would take a lot of interest, make exceptions when its not necessary etc. I thought to myself this is the spirit of Hawaiian people, they're just so friendly and caring.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Live every second of your wedding!
Especially for Covid Brides -
Its still yoir special say, you're the star.. Never onve feel that your wedding was a compromise because it actually is a blessing in disguise. You ll feel so much more with just tbise who matter around you.
 
The glow only comes from within, hence pls do everything you can to remain happy those days. There is no need to stress, wnough people arw working to make your wedding the most special.
 
The one thing you can focus on is your pictures, makeup and your look. Those who couldn't attend the wedding will live it through the photos and also in future your children /grandchildren will see these. Images are timeless.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I did have a really cute and colorful Mehendi ceremony the day before at our home. His parents and relatives came over and we had a blast with the dholki and singing traditional punjabi songs. Of course all this was also telecast on zoom for my family that wasnt there. His aunt did my haldi and put mehendi for me on my hands and feet.
 
I felt so touched, that everyone throughout this wedding had gone out of their way to make me feel special. I wouldn't have it any other way :)

What a great way to start the day! Remember that we have new stories every day, so make sure to join us tomorrow for more.
