Abbotsford, BC Sikh Wedding by Vissare Media Group

Jas and Parm’s love story first began when they both happened to swipe right on Bumble. A doctor meets an engineer - every Indian parents’ dream! After a few clumsy jokes (on Jas’ part) and some great initiative (on Parm’s part), they met a few days later for the first time.

Parm planned the perfect first date in Fort Langley, BC – simple, fun and right up Jas’ alley. Jas was, of course, late – no surprises there! They spent hours walking and talking along the river with the sun shining on them, having lunch and walking some more. They enjoyed each other's company so much that they decided to get coffee just to keep the date going; and although the date finally ended after 6 hours, it was the first of 4 dates that week alone!

That first week summed up the instant connection that Jas and Parm felt, and it only continued to grow despite living on opposite sides of Canada. They learned about making the most of the short visits and small moments that life hands you. They became very familiar with frequent flier miles, skype and games like Words with Friends (with a decent amount of competition).

A trip to New York for Jas’ birthday was a turning point in their relationship. The thrill of travelling together, the adventure of exploring a new city and the teamwork involved in picking the next restaurant or trying to not get lost proved that they were a couple that worked well together and could enjoy each other’s company for extended periods of time.

Now, after over 2 years of good morning and goodnight texts, skype dates and daily phone calls, they are excited to finally tie the knot and continue their love story in Toronto.

No thanks to COVID-19, the couple’s wedding plans went upside down. The guest list was cut from 400 person gurudwara wedding to a beautifully intimate 35 person ceremony in the bride’s parents backyard. It was the perfect blend of a very Western style wedding while maintaining all Sikh wedding traditions important to them.

“Vissare Media Group did an awesome job at adapting to the new COVID wedding demands, which included a full video livestream for all of our guests (as none of my family was able to attend due to travel and border restrictions). I am happy that my family was able to feel included by watching the day from start to finish as if they were standing right there.”

Congratulations Jaspreet & Patrick!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
This is our story, a blurb I wrote for family and friends:

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The proposal was intimate, private and absolutely perfect. While I was getting ready for our date to see the Canadian musical ´Come From Away’, he had filled the living room of our small downtown Toronto apartment with tons of tea light candles. As I walked out into the living room, there he was, standing with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers, surrounded by the candles - straight out of the movies. He then proposed, and of course, I said yes! Then I told him to wait, and ran to my coat pocket where I pulled out a paperclip that I had fashioned into a ring earlier that week. I walked back to him, bent on one knee, and proposed to him! Spoiler alert - he said yes too!

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.
Thanks to COVID-19, all our plans changed completely. We ended up going from a 400 person gurudwara/hall reception wedding to a beautiful 35 person intimate one in my parents backyard. We ended doing a very Western style wedding while maintaining all Sikh wedding traditions important to us.

The decor vendor came to see the space, and with my sister (the true mastermind behind the style of this wedding), they worked create a masterpiece. They even thought of smallest details like going with burnt orange/fall flowers for the Palki, so that it would compliment our green outfits in the pictures. I am so grateful to them.

Our photo and video did an awesome job at adapting to the new COVID wedding demands, which included a full video livestream for all of our guests (as none of my family was able to attend due to travel and border restrictions). I am happy that my family was able to feel included by watching the day from start to finish as if they were there.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew from the start that I wanted something different, something that would make a statement. I had seen one bride on Instagram wearing a green lengha, and I had fallen in love with the colour. But I was an open canvas when it came to style and design. As we shopped and saw more designs, it became clear that I was loving all the Pakistani style designs. So we focused on that and then once I found the perfect lengha, we customized it for the green colour (which took some trial and error and people running around to find examples of green around them shop!) It ended up just how I had hoped it would, and the green was perfect.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Making the invitations and COVID signs myself! Turns out I have a creative side to me and really enjoyed designing our wedding invitations, save the dates and « keep 6ft apart » signs for our events. It was a lot of fun!

Happy Wednesday, Maharanis!

So let's not wait any longer and enjoy all the mesmerizing details of Hajira & Shayan's wedding. Being this a life-changing event, it is no surprise that our young couple wanted to immortalize all the moments surrounding this day. That is why they decided to bring Maria Fasih Studios to capture ever scene of the Nikkah ceremony hosted at the Diyanet Center. For this long-awaited day, our gorgeous Maharani looked breathtaking thanks to the exquisite makeup and hairstyle designed by Mahwish Ali Beauty. The nude colors and the classy hairstyle enhanced our lovely bride's innate beauty and complemented the gorgeous outfit from Embellished By Sadaf Amir's collection! But that is not all. To crown this marvelous look, Hajira got a fabulous Mehndi outlined by Naseem. COVID could not stop Hajira & Shayan to start their everlasting love story in such a charming and romantic way, and we have no words to express how happy we are for them. If you want to unveil all the beauty of this wedding, click play and get ready to be amazed!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Very early in our relationship he would always say "I'm going to marry you". When he told me his parents are going to come over for my hand I laughed because I loved his persistent pursuit of me despite me playing hard to get (even though I was head over heels myself). It is so nice to be with someone who knows exactly what he wants from day one and is not afraid of the next step. So after him and his parents asked for my hand things moved quickly and we started ring shopping. Let me tell you! My husband is the most trendy fashion forward man I know! He learned everything there is to know about diamonds and had such a strong opinion on the design. He wanted a solitaire and I was all about the details like a halo. We came up with a ring design we both loved and met in the middle with a solitaire look with a micropavé band. He was so involved in the process and cared so much about the design it was so sweet. I knew he had the ring but I wasn’t sure of when he would do it. I have always been the type of girl to want an intimate proposal with no one but my significant other. When COVID hit I expected there to be no detailed proposal. Little did I know that when he spontaneously visited me for my birthday weekend he would do it then! Since options were limited due to lockdown he decided to do it at home and make it super sentimental. The proposal made me cry because it was so well thought out and detailed! He set up a HUGE rose petal heart in my basement with a rose petal/candle walkway leading up to it. He bought a helium tank and filled heart balloons to line up the walkway. By the floral heart there was a board that said "Will you marry me?" with a book titled "Dream Come True" in which he laminated/pasted little details he saved from our relationship over time. I could not believe this guy saved some of the things that he did! He had his first boarding pass from his first visit to me, my first boarding pass to visit him, a rose petal from the first flowers he gave me, a piece of the gift bag from our first valentines day, first theme park entrance tickets, etc. He had worked on this book for 5 months before proposing to me with it. I could not stop myself from tears! He always jokes that I didn't even care about the ring, I was all over the book. I am so happy I get to hold onto that book and cherish it 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.
Truth be told I grew up in the DMV area and have known where I would have my wedding and who I would use as my vendors for a long time! Due to COVID we ended up doing a mayoun hosted by my uncle/aunt at their house and a nikkah at my house for now. Stay tuned for the Mehndi and Reception details in Virginia and San Francisco next year (iA, God willing)!

So for now, venue for the Nikkah was my house which ended up being the best thing ever! There is something about leaving from your house as a bride with your husband that is so so soooo special, which I may have missed out on if it had not been for COVID (silver lining of the pandemic).

Photography/Videography: None other than Maria Fasih. This decision was one I didn't even have to think about. I met Maria at my best friend's wedding. As the maid of honor at her wedding I worked closely with her vendors including Maria. In just one night we got so close! I told her right then and there that she would cover my wedding and she has accommodated me no matter how many times I had changed the dates. She has become a lifelong friend who is super talented and will drop everything for her clients. I cannot wait for future shoots with her. Her work speaks for itself but when you meet her, you will understand that her work ethic and personality is unmatched.

Hair & Makeup: Mahwish Ali Beauty. There are so many talented hair and makeup artists that I have tried in the area that I love for their own unique styles. However, when it came down to my mayoun and nikkah I knew Mahwish was the one who could give me my "ideal" looks for both events. She is so talented and super sweet! Loved everything about my mayoun and nikkah look! The amount of detail and effort she puts into her work really shows! I fell in love with my looks as soon as I saw myself in the mirror but when my husband was obsessed with both my looks I knew Mahwish hit the nail on the head.

Outfits: Embellished By Sadaf Amir. Not only is she basically family she is a GREAT designer. I have known her for years and her work is nothing short of perfect. I basically told her my vision for my mayoun and nikkah outfits and with her own expertise she elevated those outfits to the next level. She always does an amazing job with all my clothes so I knew she had to be a part of my wedding looks. She is not just a designer who will talk business with you, she will go the extra mile to keep you happy. She dealt with all my tantrums and I will forever be grateful for her.

Decor: Sarah Khan Event Styling. Where do I start with them? There aren't enough nice words I can say about Sarah Khan and her team. From even before the pandemic when we were planning my events they had been sorting through ideas and working so hard for my dream wedding. When the pandemic hit they were honestly not just decorators but also a listening ear. I will never forget all the venting sessions I had with them and how cooperative they were with all my changing plans. They gave me a more ideal wedding than I could have had in a huge venue. I mean how did they turn my house into something out of a fairytale?! Until this day the decor is being talked about and people keep asking me who did it! Ahhh, I still look back at the pictures and obsess over the details!

Mehndi/Henna: Naseem for my BEAUTIFUL mehndi. She spent hours on my hands and feet with impeccable detail and the stain was beyond beautiful. She is so talented and super sweet. I will never get my mehndi done by anyone else! LOVE her work!

Desserts: Fatima for the AMAZING cake, macarons, cake pops, and cookies. Not only were they soooo pretty they tasted so good too! Super talented and fun to work with. I have gotten desserts from her in the past too and each time she exceeds my expectations!

Extra Details: Saher for the super cute "Qubool Hai" sign and chocolate bar favors. The amount of detail and talent in her work really shows and she is so down to earth and sweet on top of that! I have ordered her favors and art work many times and will continue to do so!

Thank you to ALL our vendors for making our events even better than what they would have been pre-pandemic. Their loyalty to their clients really showed during such an uncertain time. So thankful for the life long friendships we made along the way. We could not have asked for a better team!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of planning for our wedding was the time we spent together. For most couples wedding planning leads to stress and added tension but for us it was a little different. Sure, there were days where I was being a complete bridezilla but I cannot say enough good things about my husband. He was a true gem throughout it all. He lightened up every situation and made me laugh. I think if the groom is just as involved in the planning as the bride then the memories you make are unforgettable. If you truly love each other, wedding planning should bring you closer together.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly I try to remember how I felt in each moment to relive that day in my head. However, there are TWO very important moments that I will NEVER forget. One is when we were doing our photoshoot on the HOTTEST day of the summer my husband was blowing air on me, fixing my outfit, fixing my hair, and constantly making sure I am hydrated. In those moments he didn't care that he was also burning hot, he was just worried about me. Reminded me of why I fell in love with him. Two is during/after the Rukhsati (send off) he held my hand and told me "I know how much you mean to your whole family and I can't even imagine one day giving our daughter to someone else to take away to the other side of the country...but I promise to always try to fill your dad's shoes by loving and cherishing you" That moment made me more emotional than the actual Rukhsati because here I was worried about having my dream wedding when in reality none of that matters when you have the dream partner, the #DreamBaig if you will haha!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy every moment because it flies by so quickly! I was the type of bride to worry about each and every detail but luckily my husband is very good at making me want to live in the moment. He joked around and made me laugh all night. Looking back at pictures/videos all I can see is a happy couple and that is exactly how you want to remember your big day. At the end of the day you won't remember or care about any detail, all you will remember is how happy you were in the moment. Take it from a major bridezilla!

That is all for today, darlings. Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more.

Haiku, HI Sikh Fusion Wedding by Ohana Films

Good morning, beautiful ladies! If you were looking for inspiration, you've come to the right place because Kiran & Grant's wedding celebration is beyond amazing! If you have been following us for quite a while, you must know that we already featured this wedding with this spectacular gallery captured by Anna Kim Photography. However, this celebration packed so much beauty and flair that we wanted to give you a little more. Today's cinematographic delight by Ohana Films has everything you need to enjoy this celebration at its fullest. So, get ready to reach inspirational levels you have never experienced before! This time, we will take you on a visual trip to Haiku, Hawaii,  and, more specifically, to the Haiku Mill for you to take part in the wedding ceremony that united this lovely couple in marriage. And we want to make a big shoutout to Mira Savara Events for the perfect planning of this wedding celebration and Darren Keala for the incredible decor that set the mood for this life milestone. It was all a winning combination that we cannot stop seeing! Although the scenery was perfect, nothing compared to our lovely Maharani Kiran, who looked drop-dead gorgeous after being pampered by Maui Makeup Artistry. To end this wedding bash with a bang, Kiran & Grant celebrated their marriage with an intimate and elegant reception party hosted at the Andaz Maui At Wailea Resort. And all we have to say is that it was one celebration to remember! If you want to see more about all the fantastic details surrounding this celebration of love, hit the play icon below and get ready to enjoy this real-life fairytale. We are sure you are going to love every single detail of it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Brought together by a personal matchmaker, Grant & I first crossed paths at the Claremont Hotel, Berkeley. We gabbed over cocktails & delicious eats for hours, closing the joint down. Our shared sense of humor and outlook on life unraveled so naturally, as though we had known each other all along. We left each other's company knowing in our hearts we would be together always.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
A romantic at heart, Grant wished to incorporate details in my life that he knew I held close to my heart. Knowing how passionate I was as an educator, he felt that nothing would best the setting of proposing to me in my classroom while involving my students and my principal who also had become a close friend of mine over the years.
 
After asking my father for his blessing, Grant put forth his plan on May 31st - my parents' anniversary - by arriving to school during the afternoon recess. While I heard the pandemonium garner momentum outside of the classroom, Grant was "stealthily" handing out roses to each student, who had become quite acclimated with him the past few months, dubbing us "Granjeet" as a "matrimony" of our names - Grant & Kiranjeet - while also mischievously writing cliched poetry and love notes on our behalf addressed to one another. 
 
Once the bell rang, each student sauntered in to the classroom, desperately attempting to stifle their excitement, to present a rose to me with Grant finally handing me a rose himself, proclaiming his love and desire for us to be together every day for the remainder of our lives. As he knelt down to ask for my hand, my students finally let loose their giggles and gasps of gleeful anticipation, and when I responded with "yes", the screams, shrieks, and rapture were beyond containment. Plastic champagne glasses flowing with sparkling apple cider ensued, and, true to form, what a unique unforgettable shared experience Grant created for my students to participate in such a special, heartfelt moment!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Once we immediately fell in love with Haiku Mill, cosmic forces collided with Sabyasachi's 2017 Udaipur Collection. The lehengha's green & yellow hues on raw silk complimented the lush gardens of Haiku Mill fluidly as though the cloth itself was a natural extension of the organic vines and branches found throughout the grounds. Noticeably visible was the mosaic border of the lehengha as it continued as the floral print, becoming more English influenced, a metaphorical nod to our multicultural wedding's blend of customs.
 
In my mind's eye, I had long envisioned incorporating a rich tone of emerald green for my wedding lehenga, so discovering this particular design and scheme was quintessential kismat. Simply stated, the wedding dress and the stunning venue was a match made in heaven.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
It was our best endeavor to have all of our guests regarded as one OHANA during the course of our shared time in Maui. We heard from a plethora of friends and family how special and close knit they came to feel with how each event integrated both sides together seamlessly, encouraging new relationships and bonds to form and remain established even to this day. From the onset, Grant & I strongly desired for our wedding to allow everyone to feel like a part of the "inner circle of trust."
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
With that ring comes ALOT of "responsibility". How right you are mom!
 
Never compromise yourself. You're all you've got.     Janice Joplin

See you tomorrow for more. We have a new love story that you don't want to miss!
