Dallas, TX Indian Wedding by Neville Wedding Stories

Hannah & Basil's wedding unfolded like a vibrant tapestry in the heart of Arlington, weaving together the threads of elegance, tradition, and unbridled joy. Their love story, a sweet serenade that began in high school hallways, resonated through the halls of the Loews Hotel, setting the stage for a celebration that was as heartwarming as it was majestic.

Their journey from high school sweethearts to life partners was marked by a shared spirit of adventure and resilience, which was evident in their long-distance relationship during college. The proposal, a romantic chapter set against the picturesque backdrop of Switzerland, was nothing short of a fairy tale. Basil's thoughtful orchestration of the moment, under the guise of a simple lunch, culminated in Hannah's tearful and joyous 'yes,' with their families joining in to add to the surprise and celebration.

Their wedding, a harmonious blend of elegance and tradition, was a celebration of their union and the rich cultural tapestry it represented. The bride, Hannah, immersed herself in the nuances of Indian weddings, guided lovingly by her mother-in-law. This journey of discovery was more than just planning; it was a bonding experience, a weaving together of families and cultures.

The venue, Live! By Loews - Arlington, stood as a testament to their story, its walls echoing with laughter and joy. The meticulous planning by Shelley K. Events ensured a seamless flow, allowing Hannah to revel in each moment without the shadow of stress. With her magical touch in hair and makeup, Hina Saleem made sure Hannah radiated confidence and beauty, mirroring the internal joy of her heart.

But the essence of their wedding was perhaps best captured during the Mehndi ceremony. Here, amidst the vibrant colors and intricate patterns, the dance floor became a melting pot of cultures. Family and friends, new to the wonders of an Indian wedding, embraced the celebration with open hearts. It was a night where music, dance, and laughter transcended boundaries, weaving a memory that would replay in their minds forever.

In the end, what stood out was not just the stunning venue or the exquisite arrangements but the love and unity that permeated every aspect of Hannah & Basil's wedding. It was a celebration that went beyond the joining of two souls; it was a fusion of families, cultures, and traditions, culminating in a happily ever after that was as unique as it was beautiful.

Congratulations Hannah & Basil!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband and I met right before my senior year of high school. We went to a really big school (over 600 kids in our class) and never had classes together! We both joined PALS, an extracurricular program where we mentored and tutored elementary students each week. During the introductory PALS conference, they played ice-breaker games to have the new members get to know everyone. We played musical chairs and sat next to each other. I had seen him once before and thought he was cute, so I made a move and talked to him! That night, he messaged me on social media, and we have been together ever since for the past 7 years. I’m so thankful we had that time together before college; the homecoming, all the sports games, and prom together were such fun memories to kickstart our relationship. I knew he was the one when we had no hesitation to do long distance in college. Even when I was going out of state to play college basketball, and he was staying in Texas, we immediately took on the challenge to make it work. We went through 3 years of long distance in college before COVID hit, which made our relationship stronger. Each time we got to visit each other was so special, and we learned to never take any time together for granted.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
This will always be the best day of my life (besides our wedding). I was on a family trip with my now husband and his family (parents and brothers) in Switzerland. We had been gone for about a week at this point, exploring different cities and having a great time. We then drove to Vitznau and checked into the most beautiful hotel I have ever seen. Even though I had a bit of an urge he was going to propose, my family wasn’t there. He knew that I wanted my family to be there when he proposed, so that’s why I thought it wasn’t happening yet. The next day, we ordered room service for breakfast and had the best morning. He kept telling me he had a nice lunch planned for us and insisted we go. That’s when I realized it could be happening, and it didn’t make sense why he was so persistent. I got dressed, and we went downstairs to a beautiful set up with intimate floral decor and a seating area for us. We were greeted by a photographer who said she was going to take pictures of us. I immediately got tears in my eyes and thought okay, this is it! We took photos for about 20 minutes and relaxed by the water. Then, for one of the photos, when I was turned around, I turned back, and he was down on one knee. It was an immediate yes, and I definitely blacked out! It was a moment we had both been waiting so long for, and it was so special, in the most beautiful place I could imagine. To top it all off, he had my family fly in to surprise me (they got there the night before). Before I knew it, I looked up, and my parents and brother were there. He knew how important this was to me, and I was so happy to have everyone together. For the rest of the trip, both of our families were in Switzerland together, exploring and spending time together. It was the best and so so special.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the most enjoyable part of planning was getting to learn more and more about Indian weddings from my mother-in-law every step of the way. She guided me very well and made sure I was comfortable with everything and really let me be a part of the process. Spending that time together during the food tastings, hotel walkthroughs, dress fittings, etc., will always be so special to me.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I truly think the guests enjoyed our wedding because they could tell how much time and effort we put into the small details. We took so much time planning the decor, food, timeline, etc. We really wanted everything to flow throughout the night. They could also tell how much I and my husband love each other, as well as our families and how much we care for one another. It was very unique and still felt very intimate even when there were over 300 people in the room!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It’s so hard to just choose one moment, but one of my favorite moments was during the Mehndi when everyone was dancing and having such a great time. With all of our families and friends coming together and honestly having the time of our lives celebrating. The DJ basically had to kick us off the dance floor. It was so fun seeing all of my family and friends experience an Indian wedding event for the first time, how much they embraced it, and how we’re having fun.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t let the small things get to you! After the wedding is all over and done, you won’t remember them anyway. You will remember the happy times and the special people you got to be with the most. There really isn’t any other time in your life where all the people you love get to be in one room together, so you might as well soak up every second of it.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I cannot say enough great things about the venue we picked and the people we got to work with for our wedding. The Loews Hotel in Arlington was so amazing, and their staff was incredible. Jill Price was such a pleasure to work with, and her knowledge of South Asian weddings was very impressive and helpful. Our coordinator, Shelley Kurian, made all of our dreams come true and was so on top of everything. I was not stressed at all throughout the weekend because I knew we could count on her and her team; she’s amazing. I am so lucky I got to work with Hina Saleem for hair and makeup. She made me feel so beautiful and confident. Her work is amazing, and I cannot recommend her enough!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

Vish and I met during our orientation for medical school. We had this event called a “white coat ceremony” where they presented us with the very first white coats of our career. He tells this very cheesy story where he saw me from across the room and had to meet me. I did not notice him initially, but he came up to me introduced himself, and asked for my number. I thought he was a handsome confident man so I gave it to him. That week we got to know each other and fell for each other quickly. Honestly, I don’t think there was a specific moment when I knew he was “the one.” I think it was more of an organic process where he kept revealing more of himself to me over time, and I loved every bit of it. Eventually, I found myself always wanting to be around him and I knew that I needed to spend the rest of my life with this man.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

We got engaged at the end of our second year of residency. We had been together for six years but had to spend residency in a long-distance relationship. I was in Kansas City, Missouri and Vish was in Chicago, Illinois. We would see each other about once a month and this time we had a week of vacation and I was planning on spending it with him in beautiful Chicago in the summertime. When I arrived, he had surprised me with a new dress for each day. He played it off by saying that it was so that the week could feel like a real vacation. We were too poor at the time to travel, so he wanted the week in Chicago to feel special. In reality, he just wanted to make sure that whatever I was wearing when he proposed was fit for the moment. When the day finally came, he took me to beautiful Lincoln Park where there was a nice restaurant that he had a reservation at. Instead, in front of the beautiful Chicago skyline next to Lake Michigan, he asked me to be his wife. We then took a walk through the park and neighborhood and along the way he surprised me with my family, his family, and our close friends who flew out to celebrate the moment with us. He rented out the patio of our favorite restaurant so that we could have it to ourselves while we celebrated with margaritas by the fountain. It was the second-best week of our life (second to the wedding itself of course).

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

So we had two different marriage ceremonies for our wedding. We had a traditional South Indian Hindu ceremony along with a “black tux and white wedding dress” Western ceremony. In terms of finding my wedding dress, it was pretty straightforward. I went to a bridal store in Dallas with my sister and younger cousin who are my closest friends (we have a very close family) as well as my mother and aunt. As soon as I put on the wedding dress of my dreams, we all knew this was the one! It was a romantic ballgown with a fitted corset bodice, and it was perfect. In terms of my Indian outfits, it is a more exciting tale. Vish’s family took us both to India to do our wedding shopping. The country was unlike anything I ever experienced in my life. There was beauty in the organized chaos that was Hyderabad, India. We toured the different sari shops where we were shown hundreds and hundreds of saris. Vish and I decided to go with gold as the color of our bridal outfits, and we found the perfect sari at Gawri Signature. It was so beautiful. Again this is cheesy, but my husband is very cheesy. He describes me as being a goddess wrapped in gold in this bridal sari. I think one of my favorite outfits for our wedding is my Sangeet dress as well. I have to mention the designer who custom-stitched this piece for me. Vaishali Agarwal created a beautiful cherry red lehnga with a corset top complete with a sweetheart neckline that I loved.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests had such positive comments about the décor of our wedding. We have to give credit to our wedding planner Eunice Bravo and her entire team. She did such a spectacular job working with us to create our vision for our wedding. In terms of the different events of our wedding week, each had a different theme. Our Vietnamese Tea Ceremony was simple and elegant and held in Vish’s parents' loft at the resort. Our Sangeet had a theme of Moroccan nights with deep colors such as navy blue and maroon all around. There were beautiful lanterns suspended from the grand gazebo called the Tierra Luna in front of the Garza Blanca Cancun. Our Hindu wedding ceremony was on the beach with a beautiful Mandaap decorated with bright yellow and orange flowers. Our American ceremony was also outdoors on a terrace overlooking the beach. There were beautiful pastel purple, blue, and pink florals. The reception which is further described in the question below was the exclamation point in terms of décor. Our wedding planner along with the help of Casa Selva (florals), Canteiro (design), Zuniga (design), and Minimal (design) did an incredible job recreating an indoor rainforest. In general, our guests (along with us) were enamored with the design and décor of the events of our wedding.

 Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

Our first dance was so special to us. We had been preparing for it for at least 2 months. Nearly every day we learned and practiced a choreographed dance to “Golden Hour” by JVKE. When the actual moment came it was perfect. Our reception was at the ballroom at the Garza Blanca Cancun which is an indoor venue on the highest floor of the building. Our wedding planner Eunice and floral vendor Casa Selva teamed up to create the most beautiful setting for this moment. They recreated a rainforest with real plants and flowers under which we got to have our first dance as husband and wife. The low smoke was in full effect to make the moment even more dramatic. It was so special to us to have our dance in front of our families and friends in this beautiful setting. It had multiple spins and lifts and our guests were cheering us on the entire time. It wasn’t technically flawless (although it almost was haha), but it was such a special unforgettable moment for us.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

I will keep this one short and sweet – start early so you get to book the venue of your dreams, 8-12 months is usually enough time for this. Hire a wedding planner especially if you are having an Indian wedding, because there are so many details that you may not even be able to think of yourselves and it helps to have someone good to guide you along the path. One of the most important things is to establish your guest list early in the process so you how much to budget. Make a list of things that are most important to you for your wedding (for us it was décor, photo/video, and food), and once you have that established, spend aggressively on the aspects of the wedding that matter to you but save aggressively on those that do not.

They embarked on a journey of forever, promising to cherish each moment together in love.
