How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mihir and I met at work during the summer of 2012, I was a summer intern there and he was working full-time. For one of my projects during my internship- I was handing out a questionnaire to each department and that’s when I came into his department and started conversing with him. He had intentionally not written his name on the questionnaire which gave me another reason to talk to him. We clicked right away and started seeing and talking to each other a lot more. A year later, we started dating and have been together ever since then. He always brings the best side of me and is extremely supportive of every decision I make. As the years passed and our relationship became stronger, I realized he was the one. I always wanted to marry someone that is not only my partner but also my best friend with who I can always count on and talk openly with.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Mihir’s proposal plan was to try and recreate our very first date and to go the same place for dinner, take the same walk along the lakeshore, and surprise me where we first sat and talked. Unfortunately Mother Nature’s schedule wouldn’t allow for it to occur on the first day he tried. It began to rain and Mihir wisely chose to change the plan as he knew I wouldn’t like the pictures of the proposal being ruined by rain. He craftily attempted to propose again during the same week, by kneeling to tie his shoes, and I’ll admit I thought that was going to be it, but once again, rain played spoiler. The day he finally proposed, we were walking around the port after having lunch and it was a gorgeous spring day outside, we were indulging on our gelato and i didn’t even realize we had walked to a serene and private area of the lakeshore. He started telling me about how he feels about me and then went on his knees and ended up popping the question. I couldn’t have asked for a better proposal because he remembered our first date and mimicked it for the proposal!

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.
As I have a design background, I always wanted to incorporate a touch of my vision for the wedding which included brainstorming on Monterrey by creating mood boards. I then collaborated with my wedding coordinator, Leanna Burdie by showcasing what I was envisioning with lots of notes and images that best describes what I was looking for. Then she showed me what the resort can offer and we started selecting the decor, linen, layout, etc. I made welcome bags for all the guests that were coming with some snacks, waterproof phone covers, our wedding week itinerary and thank you cards.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I found my Bridal Lengha at The New Delhi Company in Toronto. I wanted to wear a traditional colour but did not want red, so I started exploring other colour options such as burgundy, I also did not want to wear a very heavy Lengha as our wedding venue was on the beach. The day I wore my Bridal Lengha, I knew right away that the outfit is the one!

The other outfits for the rest of my events were from India. Thanks to my mom and masi along with constant FaceTiming her in India during odd hours of the day.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our wedding day, as I was walking down the aisle and saw Mihir - I felt so content and ready to marry the man of my dreams.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Things may not always go as you planned but always remember to cherish and enjoy every moment during your wedding festivities.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Jewelry: India
Decor such as table numbers, welcome drinks sign, entrance table design layout bangles and bindi bar signs for mehendi was designed by me.
The m&p sign for the reception backdrop and cake topper was ordered on Etsy.

More to come, ladies! So make sure to stick around.

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.

If you thought that this was beautiful, you will be thrilled to know that this is about to get better, so stick around for more!
