How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my Groom through family connections. I was at a wedding and Mubashir approached me. I remember being incredibly nervous from the attention, but I instantly knew he was “the one”. Kind, gentle, and respectful— everything I had dreamed of. He recalls that he felt the exact same way about me… he was nervous yet knew that he would regret if he didn’t walk over and talk to me. Grateful for our instant and deep connection every day since our first meeting.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to a rooftop breakfast at the Montage in Beverly Hills, while a special location, I wasn’t expecting anything out of the ordinary. However, he completely surprised me! When I walked into the restaurant, I was stunned because there were roses everywhere and a beautiful sign asking, “will you marry me?” Friends and family joined us for our special brunch, and it was such a memorable event.
 
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.
Planning a wedding can be one of the most exciting, yet intimidating things you’ll ever do. Luckily, I had my mother’s support and she was the greatest in making sure every single detail was executed perfectly! Because we worked together, we were able to achieve more. We made sure that we clearly articulated our vision for the wedding to all of the planners and we developed timelines for key events leading up to the big day. My overall experience was excellent from picking a venue (at Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort in Huntington Beach), to hair and makeup, and wedding décor (by 2Create Designs)— which I contribute to a combination of teamwork, proper planning, and good luck.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Because of my Pakistani background I wore traditional red. I was not confident in this color at first because I do not normally wear red. However, I was astonished at how beautiful my bridal lengha was, once I let go of expectations, I was able to fully embrace the beauty of red. The lengha was artfully embellished and flowy—it made for a memorable event.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was working so closely with my mother. I think our relationship deepened through the process and I am very grateful we were able to share this experience together. My mom reminded me to stay centered and grounded throughout the process. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests were really impressed with the personal touch of our wedding. We made a point to personally connect with as many guests as we possibly could and worked to ensure everyone was having a great time! Additionally, we shared wedding photos and videos with everyone, so they could see how they were a part of our special day.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
During dinner, Mubashir and I invited wedding guests to come up and greet us. This was an incredibly amazing experience as I realized how much love and support, we have from our family and friends. The kind words that everyone shared are still with me today and constantly replay in my head. I feel very fortunate to know how many people truly care about us and our future together.
 
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 had a beautiful bridal shower in Newport Beach two weeks before the wedding. I wore a white dress and had my guests dress in pastel colors. We had lunch and a tea party, which fit the Southern California weather. We also had a presentation of the bridge and groom; which was a more formal dance and “presentation to society”. I wore a pink mehndi outfit for the event.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My best advice is to stay calm throughout the process (it can certainly seem overwhelming) and to pray to God. Everything will turn out amazingly if you just trust the process and give your full faith. While it may be nerve-inducing to have so many “eyes on you”, it is helpful to realize that this is because you have so much love from your family, community, and friends!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My wedding and the months leading up to it were some of the best of my life. I thank my family for their incredible support and unwavering love through the process.

There is more to come, ladies! And believe us, you don't want to miss any detail, so make sure to stay around!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Nirmal at a mutual friend’s birthday party in 2008. We dated throughout high school and attended Michigan State University together. Our love grew stronger for each other throughout the years. We knew we were special to each other early on in our relationship.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We both planned a trip Los Cabos, Mexico as a vacation from school and work. Little did I know, he had much more planned. Before dinner on the second to last night, he asked if we could check out the beach as we were running a little early. The sun was setting and we were casually talking about how big the waves were. He popped the question right then. There was a hidden photographer capturing the big moment! I went on the trip with a boyfriend, but returned with a fiancé!
 
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.
My sister and 3 cousins just recently got married all within the past 4 years. I had all of their recommendations and referrals which was helpful during the planning process. I had a binder that had my inspirations and important details. I updated it whenever I had decor and planning meetings. Nirmal would also add his notes to the binder as well. Our venue was perfect for all of our needs for each event. We had a high guest count and the attached hotel accommodated for all of our out of town guests as well. Our outfits shopping was fairly easy when we went to India. We had a few colors in mind as well as specific stores that we wanted to go to in Mumbai and Surat. We finished all of our shopping within 6 days and were able to visit our grandparents for the rest of our trip. My hair and make up was exceptional with the best dream team anybody could ask for. Our decor theme for our Sangeet was village themed. We had kites shipped from Surat (special thanks to my uncle), a rickshaw, and village themed gujarati foods, such as kichidi! Our Sangeet program was planned by our siblings. It was a skit about our relationship which guests really enjoyed. We had performances by our all of our family members and closest friends.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I selected my bridal lengha within the first 2 hours of shopping in Mumbai as Nirmal ate a sandwich across the street with both of our dads! I knew I wanted white or cream. When I tried it on, my mom and mother-in-law cried. I knew it was the one.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of wedding planning was adding mine and Nirmal’s personal touches. I recently got into graphic designing. I made our wedding programs, wedding itineraries for our welcome bags, signages for each event, and signs for food stations. Nirmal has been DJing for 8 years. He made all of the mixes for our Sangeet, Wedding, and Reception. He even hopped on the turntables at our reception!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
After our wedding, we received a lot of compliments for the concept of our “unplugged wedding ceremony.” We asked all of our guests to turn off their cell phones and requested no photographs. It was beautiful to walk down the aisle to see a bunch of smiles rather than iPhones & flashes. It created a peaceful ambiance which is hard to find at indian weddings.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Nirmal and I read our vows to each other after our first look the morning of our wedding. It was a moment that resonates with us till this day. We made our promises and shared our heartfelt vows that we will never forget.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Just breathe. Everything will be perfect.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
