Novi, Michigan Indian Wedding by Northern Lights Studio

Happy Wednesday, ladies! We are glad you could join us today because we have a lovely new story to share! This time, Northern Lights Studio will take us on a visual journey through Seema & Nirmal's wedding festivities, and believe us, this is one you don't want to miss. So let's get right into it! We are starting by taking a look at an elegant and fun-loving Sangeet Ceremony planned by Utsav Planners, Inc. And we cannot stretch how much we loved every bit of this pre-wedding event. The magnificent decor that captivated everyone was the result of combining top of the line wedding experts like Utsav Planners, Inc., Christopher & Co and Couture Events. And you already know that once we have all that talent and expertise, there is nothing but perfection to be expected, and this Sangeet was no exception. Both our lovebirds attended this pre-wedding event embracing a traditional style that echoed on the artistic Mehndi design that our lovely Maharani got from Krupa. If you don't want to miss any detail of this incredible Sangeet, make sure to visit the gallery that we have prepared for today. It is the perfect preamble for what is about to come! So go take a look at it, you will love it!

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.)
