How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met for the first time while in grad school in Florida for a game night with a group of friends. We didn’t really keep in touch after that and just followed each other on social media. Three years later we both ended up in California for work. Nikhil saw a story of mine in instagram and dm’d me. We decided to meet eventually and he drove an hour and half to meet me in San Diego. One thing led to the other and here we are :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
There was no formal proposal. It was very organic. We just realized we wanted to be with each other for the long run and get married.

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.
Our wedding was initially supposed to happen in Chennai, India. But then 2020 happened. Our parents were pretty sure that they wanted us to go ahead with the wedding even if they couldn’t attend. We initially considered pushing it, but just having no idea when things would get better, we decided to go ahead with the wedding on the planned date, but in California instead. While our parents couldn’t attend we had family in SoCal and in the Bay Area. We finally decided on this beautiful castle like venue in Pleasanton. A friend of mine went to the wedding venue multiple times and FaceTimed me, so that I could tour the place. The actual planning of the wedding took place over four different time zones as my Dad lives in the UAE, my mom and Nikhil’s mom in India, my sister in Toronto and us here in California. My aunt and cousin were instrumental in the whole planning process. They set up this super helpful google doc with options for vendors, websites for and outfits. We could not have pulled this wedding off without them! I used this google doc as my reference and slowly researched about each vendor and fixed on my final vendor list. Another aunt of mine suggested Sri Caterers for food catering. One of the best decisions we made as far as this wedding was concerned. Nikhil and me worked on curating a menu that would have Tamil, Telugu and Kannadiga elements to it. The food turned out to be super aunthentic and tasty. I coordinated with Sania regarding the color scheme and decor over multiple phone calls. Since I was getting everything done from San Diego, I could only connect with my vendors virtually. Our outfits were all ordered online after phone and video calls to the stores that we bought them from in Bangalore. I sent a sample blouse to my aunt and she got my wedding blouses stitched for me in the Bay Area. As far as makeup was concerned, I was basically looking for an artist that would ensure that my makeup looked natural and I looked like myself on my wedding day. Pratixa did a wonderful job with that! I shopped for my accessories online at Vriksham. They helped me put together the right accessories that would suit both my sarees. Sarees and accessories all had to be approved by my sister. She is always my go to for anything related to clothes and fashion :)  Photography, Videography and live-streaming was very important to us as our parents would not be there physically for the wedding. After going through various portfolios and live-streaming links, we decided on Wedding Documentary. We don’t regret that decision one bit. Everyone was all praise for the streaming and we love our wedding videos and photos. For the wedding background music, we requested people in singers in our families to record and send it to us. So it truly felt very personal.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I just knew I wanted one of my outfits to be a blush pink saree and I found the perfect one at Janardhana Silks.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Having done everything virtually and seeing it all come to fruition on the wedding day was the best part. It turned out exactly as we had planned.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved the venue and the food :) I think another aspect of the wedding, the guests appreciated were the personalized gift bags we ordered on Etsy with each of the wedding guest’s name etched on it.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The Saptapadi. That moment was beautiful. With Sita Kalyanam sung by Nikhil’s mom playing in the background :)

But to me the most special part of the wedding was that involved the efforts of so many people. We could not have pulled any of this off without our family and friends. While our parents couldn’t  make it to the wedding physically, they were involved in every aspect of the planning and were present throughout virtually.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There will be moments when you will be extremely overwhelmed or frustrated during the planning. Make sure you have your closest friends or family on speed dial for those moments! Definitely helps to vent every now and then :) But seriously, just trust that everything will work out in the end! You have probably already taken care of anything that was in your control.

What a great way to start this week, isn't it, ladies? Remember that we have new stories every day, so make sure to join us tomorrow for more!

Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Memories Photo Studio

Hello there, Maharanis! Head over to our Platinum Guide Blog to enjoy Bhavina & Roshan's wedding.

photo #312158

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Roshan and I met in 2015 on a dating app called Dil Mil. We chatted on the app for a few weeks and then decided to meet in person. At the time Roshan was working in Birmingham, AL and I were working in Greenville, SC. We decided to meet in Greenville at a cupcake place called Chocolate Moose. Meeting someone from an app, I was a bit skeptical but once we finally were face to face it was like we couldn't stop talking. We hit it off the moment we saw each other. I knew at that moment that Roshan was "the one" for me!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
As a child I always envisioned myself wearing a traditional red and gold color bridal lengha. Once I actually got to India and started shopping I realized there are tons of “traditional red and gold” colored lenghas. Going into bridal lengha shopping I knew I didn’t want anything with velvet material. I tried on over 25 bridal lenghas before I was able to find “the one”. At first, I was hesitant to try on anything velvet or with heavy embroidery. But I gave it a shot anyway. As I was trying on the outfit knew it was “the one”.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of our wedding process was the resort site visits in Cancun, Mexico. We had an idea of the type of resort we wanted but actually visiting them was great. Getting to experience the different themes in the resorts, foods, hospitality, amenities, and venues really helped us put things into perspective for our events. Lastly, we really enjoyed watching a years worth of planning come together as planned and got to enjoy it with family and friends.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that plays in my head constantly is when my parents and grandmother (ba) walked me down the aisle the day of my wedding. Having my family walk me down the aisle was something I had always wanted during my wedding. Being able to finally embrace it and live it was amazing.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For all of the brides-to-be, I would say enjoy the wedding process. Planning an Indian wedding can be stressful, time-consuming and at times frustrating but enjoy all of the emotions. For myself, I was planning my wedding the day after I got proposed to. I enjoyed having my husband alongside of me the entire way. He was really involved and reminded me to embrace the moments. Lastly, I would say to be patient on the day of your wedding and just know that things may go unplanned but it’ll all work out at the end!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I am a very simple person so dressing up more than casual for my wedding events was a little outside of my comfort zone. My jewelry I picked was antique bronze with a hit of maroon for my wedding day. I love tikas so I made sure to wear one at almost every event. My wedding bouquet was all hydrangeas which were my best friends favorite flowers. My outfits didn't have a particular theme to them I just wanted to make sure they were all different styles, colors, and embroideries. Lastly, I ended up finding my reception gown two nights before my flight back home from Bombay. I had a particular vision of how I wanted it to look and it had to be emerald in color (my favorite color). So finally I was able to find it and I was beyond happy!
