How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Aseem and I met on Dil Mil. We talked over Facetime for a couple of months and we eventually met. From the first moment whenever we talked, our conversations flowed easily and we quickly learned that we had the goals and values. It was after the first couple of months that we both knew that we had found the one, but we knew early on that we had something special.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Aseem knew how much I love Harry Potter, so his family helped him plan a Harry Potter escape room proposal. We worked through all of the different clues and the last clue led into 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.
We started with the major vendors, photographer, venue, decorator, and DJ. We talked with lots of different vendors and did thorough research before we booked anything, this was a huge part of what made our event so successful. The Detroit Metro Airport Sheraton was an amazing venue, they were able to help and work with us and every detail of the wedding. I can't stress how important it is for to work with vendors that you get along with.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We actually drove to Toronto for me to try on different styles ahead of time because we knew that I only had 10 days to do all of my shopping in India. It was pretty obvious what I liked right away and I bought my lengha from Asopalav in Ahemdabad in the first 6 hours I was in India. The extra research really helped.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My family and I held wedding planning meetings, with family and friends that would be helping out with various parts of the wedding week. We had meetings starting about 4 months ahead of time, but there was always a lot of food and laughter at these meetings. It helped it really feel like the wedding was coming closer and I loved spending the extra time with everyone I loved before I moved!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Guests loved that the whole weekend felt personal and intimate. From the very start we didn't want a wedding that was too large, every person invited was close to our families, this allowed us to spend time with all of the guests. Another big hit was the food, Mohit Dhawan of Punjab Sweets and Catering helped create the perfect menu and our guests are still talking about how amazing the food was during cocktail hour.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The whole ceremony was special but it was the reception that was our favorite. Hearing everyone's speeches and seeing how much work everyone put into the performances was special. But more particularly dancing the night away with our family and friends was the best ending to an amazing weekend.
 
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.
When it came to decor, I had ideas and Tina of Marigold Weddings really helped it come together. We wanted the whole weekend to have a bright and airy feeling and she was really able to capture that. It was also really cool that we were able to combine both Aseem's Punjabi heritage and my Gujarati one during the Garba. The groom's side entered with a Jago which was so much fun and we finished the night off with live Garba. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start early! Vendors get booked early and it really helps take the stress off as you get closer to the wedding. Involve the groom, Aseem had great ideas and was a great listener when I got stressed.

 

This pre-wedding event was the perfect preamble for the upcoming wedding ceremony, so make sure to stay close if you don't want to miss it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We matched on the Dil Mil dating app and talked for two months before finally deciding to meet in person in Chicago. He was in residency in St. Louis and I was in medical school in Detroit, so that was a good halfway point for us. We had talked on the phone and FaceTimed several times before meeting in person so it felt like I already knew him. We toured the city and eventually ended up sitting by the lakeshore talking about our lives, our goals, and our feelings. Honestly, I think I knew then that he was the one. I knew this was something special.
 
More to the filminess of our first date can be found on our wedding website :)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The whole story is also on our wedding website! And the scavenger hunt proposal cards were recently shared on Dil Mil's Instagram (link below).
 
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.
The wedding planning process is without a doubt a very stressful experience, but it was completely worth it. We did not hire a wedding planner because my family and I love planning events and we wanted to go about this our own way. We searched for vendors in both the Chicago and Detroit areas because the wedding was in my hometown Kalamazoo which is halfway between the two. Now as I look back, I couldn't have asked for anyone better. Everything was perfect and exactly the way I dreamed/wanted it to be.
 
Our venue coordinators at the Radisson (Lindsay and Sam) were PHENOMENAL from the day we booked the Radisson Plaza Hotel until the very end. They didn't have much experience with Indian weddings, but we were excited and willing to learn. We met several times to go over details and timelines and they didn't miss a thing. They were so key in keeping all the events running smoothly.
 
For hair and makeup, Karishma Mehta of Makeup By Karishma was also a dream come true. I shared pictures and Pinterest posts of the looks I was going for, and she nailed it. Each event was totally unique and totally perfect. At first, I struggled with an Indian vs non-Indian makeup artist due to costs. In the end, I am glad I chose Karishma because she was able to set my jewelry and do my draping without much additional instruction, allowing my mother, sister, and other family members to also get ready in a timely fashion.
 
Last but certainly not the least, we had the BEST DJ in the industry. DJ Mixta (Micky Singh of Singh Innovations) served as our DJ and MC. We met several times over the course of the planning process to go over timing, entrances, intros, and song selections. He was our personal hype man and to this day our guests RAVE about his charisma and his energy. He worked closely with our venue coordinators to ensure things were running in a timely fashion.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I definitely wanted a more traditional red and gold look for the wedding. Red is such a bold color and just screams bridal, and I couldn't imagine getting married in anything else. I spent one day in Rajouri Gardens in Delhi, trying on different styles and designs, but nothing clicked. I eventually ended up at CTC mall which was recommended by a friend. Their selection was unbelievable. My bridal lehenga happened to be the last one I tried on at the end of the night, right as the store was closing. When they draped it on me and I twirled around, I didn't need to look any further. I just knew I had found the right one.
 
On the other hand, searching for my reception gown turned out to be more difficult that I imagined. I searched high and low through Delhi and Vadodara trying to find the perfect dress. I had always envisioned a "Starry Night" themed reception and wanted a dress to match. Ideally, it would be navy blue and silver. But with the color trends these days, that was almost impossible to find. After days and days, and dresses on dresses, I finally arrived at Sequinze. The shopkeepers were determined to make my dream come true and pulled out their very best. The gown I chose fit me perfectly. It was silver and sparkly, and could perfectly complement a navy blue backdrop. They paired it with silver jewelry set from their store, and I felt like a princess.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I'm a total filmy Bollywood girl at heart. I absolutely loved picking songs with special meanings for each part of every event and our DJ was key in playing them at the right times. I also loved choreographing some of the dance performances! Danced with my bridesmaids at the sangeet, choreographed the first dance with my husband, and put together a fun skit/dance for the bridal party to perform at the reception.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The DJ's constant energy and enthusiasm pumping up the crowd for performances, entrances, and the open dance floor.
 
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.
I have so many more thoughts and ideas, but it is impossible to share them all here. I would be happy to answer any specific questions by phone or email.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
