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

Our love story started just like many others in this modern era of dating where we both swiped right. Our paths crossed through an online dating app called Hinge, which we were both introduced to by our friends. It only took a few hours for us to find each other and have nonstop conversations. I knew he was the one after our first date, where I called by best friend and told her he is "the one"

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Paraj tricked me into thinking we were going to my birthday dinner. He said we "had" to get on a boat in order to get to the restaurant. As you might already know, I'm very gullible and believed everything he told me. During the boat ride, we stopped in front of the Chicago Skyline to capture some pictures. I was facing the skyline thinking Paraj was taking pictures of me. When I turned around, he was kneeled downed on one knee holding the most beautiful ring and asked me to marry him!

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.

I feel like the luckiest bride because I didn't have to do much planning myself. My husband took charge of organizing our destination wedding, handling most of the details by coordinating with our planners, vendors, and the resort to ensure everything was perfect. It was incredibly helpful to have both of our inputs in deciding what we wanted for our events. Our planners were especially amazing in finding the best vendors, particularly for my hair and makeup. I couldn't have found such an incredible team in Mexico without their help.

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

I couldn't have found my bridal lengha without the help of my husband and my in-laws. I knew I didn't want the traditional red; I wanted different colors for our beach wedding. My in-laws were incredibly dedicated, treating me like their own daughter as they helped me search for the perfect lengha. They stood by my side, taking me to numerous stores in India until I found the dress I fell in love with. We all said yes to the dress together, making it a day I will cherish forever.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests loved our Latin/White party event the night after the wedding. Everyone wore white, and we all danced the night away. This evening was particularly special because my husband surprised us with a party pack. The vendor brought out games and drums, allowing everyone, including us, to join in the fun. It was truly a night to remember, as our guests still fondly recall.

We hope this glimpse into a day filled with beauty and joy inspires your own magical moments.

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

My husband and I met on a dating app (Hinge). He thought of me as "the one" sooner than I did. I needed a little bit more time to be convinced. My husband is the embodiment of "slow and steady wins the race." Over time, I learned more about his caring nature and his willingness to always be there for me, no matter the circumstances. I was in the process of moving across the country for my career when I met him. In traditional Desi culture, it is always expected for women to move for a man in furtherance of their life goals. But my husband surprised me by his willingness to move with me in pursuit of my dreams.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

We both come from very traditional Muslim families, so when we first met, I laid out the expectation that if we were to continue our relationship, I wanted it to be serious and in the path for marriage. My husband didn't propose to me in the traditional sense, but very early in our relationship he made me a promise that his birthday present to me would be to make us a "forever thing."

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.

I was always the bridesmaid and never the bride. But I was always obsessed with fairytales and romance. I loved Disney movies and rom coms. This laid out inspiration for all of my wedding event themes. In the end I had 17 bridesmaids and each of my wedding events were centered around a different Disney movie.

Engagement - The Little Mermaid

Bridal Shower - Hercules

Sangeet - Tangled

Legal Wedding Ceremony - Snow White

Mehndi - Aladdin

Nikkah - Beauty and the Beast

Reception - Cinderella

I had the privilege of working with some amazing vendors in the Southern California area who brought my fairytale to life. Some of these vendors include Events by Tejal, Artistry by Denise, Iffatara's Images, AlanVPhotos, Frontier Heritage, Binno Jewels, Vitha Fashions, Sonu Company, Chez Florals, Patty's Cake, and Verdant Productions.

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

My sister, who got married before me, got her bridal lengha at Fronteir Heritage in Artesia, CA. We really liked working with their designers and team. We wanted to go back to their store for my lengha because I knew I could trust their team. I wanted each of my wedding outfits, but especially my bridal lengha to match the theme. I wanted this dress to look like Cinderella's classic ball gown. The color of course, is a little harder to pin down. My mom ultimately helped me choose the color. No one knows what looks best on you like your mom. She had a vision even before I met my husband that I should get married in silver because she believed it would look the best on me. I tried on some pale blue and white dresses as well, but ultimately chose silver at the end.

My in-laws chose and gifted my Nikkah saree, and since my reception look was going to be more modern, I wanted a classic South Indian look for the Nikkah. I still wanted the outfit to be on theme so we went with mostly yellow gold for the base of the saree. I felt that the look was still very traditional with a unique twist.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?

I loved coming up with inspiration images and I spent hours scrolling Pinterest and re-watching my favorite movies. I always knew that I would probably end up theming my wedding events this way, so I had a very clear vision of what I wanted before I even got engaged.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

I think they really like how dedicated I was to a theme. Each event was a unique experience with a unique color scheme and elements from the movie.

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

I knew I wanted to do something really different for our grand exit at our reception. In the Cinderella movie, there is a scene where she is in a room filled with bubbles. I used bubble machines and had our guests blow bubbles for our grand exit. I also loved taking pictures at the Sherman Library and Gardens at Corona Del Mar prior to our reception. The atmosphere created a wonderful, dreamy feeling.

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.

Our families and friends played a huge role in helping turn our dreams into reality. They were with us for every step of the planning process. I can be a bit stubborn, but it really helped to have feedback. My husband was also very involved with the planning process. He was happy to let me have my Disney themed weddings, but he added a lot of touches that reflected his passions as well. He likes classic movies and his reception outfit was inspired by Casa Blanca. He is an avid golf lover, and at our Aladdin-themed Mehndi, we had a mini golf game set up for the guests with little characters from the movie at each of the holes. Infusing his interests into our wedding made the wedding feel very unique and special to us. I can confidently say that we gave our guests a very distinctive experience.

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

I am actually a very indecisive person, so if I didn't have such clear themes, it would have been really hard for me to choose a theme or color palette for all of my wedding events. I may have even had regrets about what I chose. I think having a clear direction helps with choices.

I would also say that brides should always buy backups of anything they order online, especially for things like jewelry. And especially if these items are being shipped from overseas.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

From my own wedding experience plus those of others close to me, no one really eats cake at a desi wedding and there is often a lot leftover when guests have the option to choose between different desserts. We got sheet cake for our guests and had a special custom smaller cake for us to cut. My husband and I both love cake and this way we had a cake flavor we knew we were really going to enjoy, while being able to serve more of a safer crowd favorite to our guests.

We hope this enchanting celebration inspires you to craft a unique day as special as their love story.
