How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Even though I (the bride) resided in Chicago and he resides in Florida, Jaydeep and I managed to find each other on Dil Mil (I have no idea how because I thought dil mil works through your location). I actually got the app due to one of my friends who kept nagging me to check it out. I had no desire to use it because looks was important to me and I had a perception of Dil Mil as an app that did not have cute guys lol. But after a long day at work one night, I was scrolling through my phone and noticed that I still had the app. I decided to click on it to open it for the very first time. To my surprise, Jaydeep’s handsome face popped up on my screen as the first guy and I couldn’t resist but to click the checkmark. As I did that, it instantly said that we matched which meant he had already checked out my page and liked it before. I didn’t think much of it so I just left it at matched and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning, I saw that I got a message from him and ever since that day we haven’t been able to go a full day without talking to each other. I knew he was “the one” from the moment we started talking because he reminded me of my brother due to his caring nature and sense of humor. I always told everyone that I would marry someone just like my brother because there’s no one I’m closer to on this planet than him and he cares for me like no one ever has; well besides Jaydeep now. :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Maui, Hawaii in 2018 because I had just passed my pharmacy boards and finally became a licensed pharmacist. He knows how much work and dedication studying for those boards are because he is also a pharmacist and graduated in 2016. So because of studying, we weren’t able to see each other for 3 months (the whole summer). As a reward, he decided to plan a trip to Hawaii. There was nothing on my mind because my brain was fried from studying so the only thing I could think of was to just have a relaxing and fun trip. He told me to pack lightly and just take one nice dress for a romantic dinner which seemed fair and sounded like any other vacay we’ve taken. On our third day, it was time for our dinner. It was up in the mountains and as we entered I saw photographers and thought “aww how cute. Someone’s getting married.” Then they started clicking away pictures of us and I got kinda confused but didn’t think anything of it. I turned around to fix my purse and the moment I turned back he was on one knee and I had no words and honestly doing recall anything he said besides, “I’ve been waiting for this day forever. Will you marry me?” Then there it was, and I said yessss to forever!

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.
Since I had lived in Chicago for over 15 years, I have been to many weddings and knew vendors pretty well. My sister got married in 2016 and helping her with her wedding planning also made me get in contact with many of her vendors. I already knew who I was going to get with elegance decor being number one on my list due to their elegant reputation and amazing decor. I knew exactly what I wanted in my decor and when I spoke to elegance they just “got it” and understood me. I wanted an open mandap concept for the wedding ceremony so my guests can all feel part of the wedding and are not blocked off by obstructed views. Hair and makeup were done by one of the best in Chicago- makeup Bushra Abbasi and I absolutely loved her work! Enough that I’m flying her down to Florida to do my sister in laws wedding make up and hair! I loved pearl banquets lighting and twinkle lights on top so I knew I wanted to get married at pearl. We decided to keep all our events there to make it easier for guests that came in from out of town. Most of my family members reside in New Zealand and Fiji and the groom's family coming in from Florida, we had to do everything possible to make sure their transport to each event was easy and manageable.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We went to India for our bridal shopping. I knew I wanted something different and something without borders. I also knew I didn’t want much gold in there but I had always imagined myself getting married in red. So I knew it had to be red in color. Shopping was intense because I am usually so picky with my outfits. We went around to all of India to find the perfect lengha for me. Then in Ahmedabad, we finally managed to find the one I fell in love with. It had the right amount of work on it and didn’t have much gold! It also was the perfect shade and we customized the dupatta to make it pink to match Jaydeeps outfit because I didn’t want us to be too “matchy-matchy” with us both doing red.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
When my husband told me I could do whatever I wanted with the decor since this was my expertise! Lol

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our decor and how we managed to match our outfits so well!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Honestly, just have fun with each event. It goes by so quick and don’t worry about outside comments or critiques. Just make sure to have fun at every event because this day will never come again.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehndi outfit was designed by me and made in India. Our red bottoms were a great pop of red at our reception.

It is time to say goodbye, ladies! But it is not for too long, because we'll be back tomorrow with a new lovely story for you!

Hello, ladies! We are wrapping up Preyasha & Vikram's wedding festivities with a fantastic reception party held at the Landsdowne Resort. Right from the start, this gala was sensational thanks to the decor crafted by Dharma Events. The beautiful floral arrangements and the delicate placement of all the ornaments set the mood for this elegant and vibrant event. DynastyAV enlivened the night with upbeat melodies that put everyone to dance, and with a fantastic scheme of lights that took this party to the next level! Everyone had a great time while dancing and tasting the delicious plates that Indique Heights Catering prepared for this reception party. The gala was so amazing that all the guests wanted to take a picture inside Shayan Fotography's photo booth to keep a memory! In between dancing, chatting, and emotions, the night was coming to an end.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on shaadi.com, I felt like I knew about two to three months into the relationship. I knew after he would make me chicken curry and was by my side during my medical licensing exams. It has always been so easy being with him. We are inherently compatible and always willing to compromise to meet each other halfway.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I nagged him and fought with him for years for a proposal. We dated about 4 years before we got engaged. After nagging him for 3 years I had given up. We went to an all-inclusive in Jamaica and he convinced me to wear something nice to this French restaurant. Even though I just wanted a lazy evening, I dressed up and we headed to dinner. He insisted on getting a photographer to take our photos on the beach. I was convinced the photographer was a sales gimmick and tried to convince Vik out of it. I tried to take selfies and was wondering why he was sweating bullets. At sunset, we are doing different poses for the photographer and he gets down on one knee and says, “since I’m in this position will you marry me.” I'm shocked and start giggling and manage to muster up “are you serious?” We have a private dinner at the beach and the Iberostar in Jamaica was amazing.

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

Picking bridesmaids/groom men outfits, we had the best bridal party in the world and it was fun to get them customized outfits m.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There is a moment when I was walking down the aisle and both Vik and I shared a moment. We were both tearful because only we knew the journey we had taken and all the adventures and setbacks we had been to get to this place. Vik is my person and I was grateful to be marrying someone that not only loves me but challenges me to grow.

Decor- really focused on gold/white/peach and pastels

The wedding is only one day regardless of what happens, what really matters the most is you marry someone who gets you.

This time we'll be taking you inside the halls of the Landsdowne Resort so we can join our lovely couple at their wedding ceremony.
