How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Our families were friends and I knew he was "the one" not long after we started talking. Our values, goals, and personalities were reflected in one another. As we head into our one year anniversary, we are thankful for the beautiful union that life gave us. 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was home one weekend and Abdullah planned a day trip to San Francisco. He walked in to the house with a beautiful bouquet of flowers that he had picked out himself. I loved them and thought it was one of his kind and thoughtful gestures (knowing how much I love flowers). We headed out to San Francisco and our first stop was Crissy Field in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. That's where Brian met us. Brian was a photographer Abdullah had hired to take some pictures of us in front of some famous landmarks. He said it would be nice to take some professional photos together. I agreed! Click after click we finally made our way over to the Palace of Fine Arts. The photographer then asked me to take a picture by myself. I was confused, but he said it was just to get a good angle and to see how the shot would come out. The next thing I know Abdullah is heading towards me, gets down on one knee, and proposes! We ended the night at a French restaurant and celebrated the beautiful day we had. 

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.
With only four months to plan the wedding, I knew I had to make decisions fast! There were a few "musts" on my list, but I knew I had to flexible due to the time constraints. I wanted a modern, elegant vibe, with just the right amount of traditional touch. I created a wedding spreadsheet and it became my wedding planner. I did some research, took some recommendations, and then began seeking out my vendors. I talked to all of my vendors before I decided to confirm. This was especially important - I wanted  vendors to share my vision and add a touch of their own creativity. From hair & makeup, to decor, my vendors were my partners in this wedding! They took my vision and brought it to life. My overall experience with them was wonderful and I would highly recommend each and every one of them. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I designed my own wedding dress and the designer made the process very seamless! I knew I wanted a traditional red with champagne gold. I also wanted an outfit that I knew I could wear again, separately, without having the full bridal look. I outlined motifs and pieces of different outfits that I liked into one document. The designer sent me color swatches and design sketches. I sent over my measurements and the husband/wife duo began the process! They sent me videos of the process and let me follow along each step of the way. Once it was completed, they shipped it over from Pakistan and I was in awe as soon as I opened the package! The pictures and videos did not do justice to the stunning craftsmanship. Thank you La Dona for making me feel like an absolute princess in my bridal dress. 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved that each and every aspect of my wedding, was designed by us. From the place cards we wrote, to the flowers we placed on the cake - our special touch surrounded us as began the start of our new life together. Our friends and family came together to support us and helped us have a beautiful wedding.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the casual vibe! They all felt welcomed around those they were even meeting for the first time. We loved this! We wanted our family and friends to feel like one big family that came together to celebrate our union.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most memorable moment of my wedding was when I stepped into the ballroom with my dad. As he walked me down the aisle towards Abdullah, it really hit me: "this is happening, Ayesha - you're ready to start the next chapter in your life."

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Take it easy! I promise everything works out in the end and all falls into place. Be clear and concise with your vendors and trust them - it's their job to make your vision come to life. Be flexible and remember that most important part: the beginning of a beautiful journey with the one you love.

This adventure continues, so stay close for the upcoming details!

This time we will take you to A New Leaf for you to take part in this lovebirds' wedding ceremony, but we are heading off in style!

After the Baraat procession, Melissa & Lucky were ready to move on with the wedding ceremony that united their lives in marriage! The decoration that A New Leaf put together for this event was minimalist but captivating, and it was just perfect for this intimate event! The lovely Melissa she stole all the looks while she was walking down the petal covered aisle to meet her Raja! She looked so ravishing that it was almost impossible not to look at her!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
From our place, we could see the helicopter tours that go over Chicago.  I shared that I would never want to go on one because I am extremely afraid of heights. Fast forward a few months, Lucky has a date planned for us, I figure we are going to dinner like normal. As we are heading out he shares with me that we are going on a helicopter ride. He's serious, not joking. I started crying and really thought this was a nightmare come to life. I felt bad because I knew he was trying to make a nice date for us so I conceded and went. The helicopter ride was better than I imagined. When we were exiting the helicopter the staff told me that our pictures before we got on did not turn out okay and if we could retake them. We agreed and as they began taking the pictures Lucky knelled down and proposed! The experience was really nerve-wracking but it was a proposal I would always remember. It turns out Lucky only hear heard me mention helicopter tour and not the part that I never want to go on it! 

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 the wedding turned into a second full-time job. Typically in Indian weddings, it's out of the couple's hands but since ours was non-traditional we wanted to plan our wedding. We began planning a little over a year out, securing the venue first. We knew we did not want a banquet hall venue so we chose a loft-style venue with an outdoor garden space.
We chose a sunset color theme (oranges, yellows, pinks)  to bring in the vibrant Indian color scheme.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Due to work constraints, we were unable to travel to India. Fortunately, my mother-in-law lives in India and traveled to Jaipur, Rajasthan to look for a lengha for me. I knew that I wanted traditional Rajasthani, heavy handwork in fuchsia. My mother-in-law and brother-in-law visited many showrooms in Jaipur and shortlisted lenghas. Through grainy, 3 am video calls, and their recommendations we were able to pick out my wedding lengha. I am so fortunate to have family that would spend many, many hours to find the perfect dress for me! 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the wedding was incorporating both of our creativity to make an event that was completely our own and seeing it actually look nice and come together on the wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I was walking down the aisle.  I made sure that I was completely present in that moment so that I would remember it. I remember hearing the music (Din Shagna Da, by Jasleen Royal), seeing everyone's faces, feeling really beautiful, and seeing my husband. 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't leave anything to the last minute. You either think you will have time and you won't, it will take longer than you think or you will have decision fatigue by then and if will go in the forget it bucket.

Seattle, WA Indian Wedding by Jerome Tso Photography

Welcome back, beautiful ladies! We are glad you could join us to continue enjoying this nuptial celebration. This time, we will be heading to the wedding ceremony in a vibrant and joyful Baraat procession that you don't want to miss. So, let's jump right into it! We love how Akhil decided to embrace a traditional style and show up at the Baraat procession riding a white horse decorated with traditional Indian fabrics! This colorful procession created a striking scene that combined modern architecture on the buildings with classic Indian colors and attires! And we cannot stress how much we love this scene! After the arrival of the Baraat, our two lovebirds were ready to go inside the exclusive Fairmont Olympic Hotel to proceed with the wedding ceremony that joined their lives forever. Once again, the talented folks from Universal Decor managed to surprise us with another lovely decoration and with a captivating Mandap. The combination of soft colored adornments with multicolored floral arrangements from Nalini's Flowers and Decor is fantastic! There is no doubt that this was a dreamy ceremony that everyone loved and enjoyed to the fullest. And we want to make a special shoutout to Jerome Tso Photography for perpetuating this solemn and life-changing event in such a beautiful way. Through each shot, you get to relive this wedding ceremony, and you get to feel the same emotions that surrounded this adorable event.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Nowadays, online dating is the way most people meet. But, that’s not how we met. We took the more traditional route...paper dating (aka biodatas). His biodata was sent through a family friend. Little did I know, this would be the beginning of our love story. We slowly got to know each other via text and FaceTime, which our first FaceTime session lasted 6 hours! He was easy to talk to and we surprisingly had a lot in common (down to carrot cake being our favorite!). It was then, I knew he was a keeper! 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My groom, been born and raised on an island, we knew our engagement would take place at his home island, Saint Croix. Only after a short 6 months, we fell in love and took the dive into getting engaged. My entire family flew down to the US Virgin Islands to celebrate our engagement. Everyone knew about his proposal plans...except for me, of course. All this time, I thought the engagement ceremony would be his proposal. I was wrong. He proposed in the middle of the Caribbean Sea, next to Buck Island. With only crystal clear water surrounding us, he got down on one knee. He was smart...even if I had said “no”, I would have nowhere to go. Lucky for him, I said “yes”. 
 
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 took place in Seattle, WA. And lucky for me, my husband and I did everything together. Venue hunting was probably the most difficult task during the wedding planning process. A lot of the vendors we chose were recommendations from family and friends. Also, social media played a huge part in vendor hunting. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I’m thankful for my mom, she spent hours around Mumbai shopping for my bridal clothing. That also included being woken up at 2-3am for 2 weeks to pick out clothes through WhatsApp video. I knew I wanted to wear something traditional for the wedding (red and white). And for my Sangeet, my husband and I decided to wear similar colors and that worked out perfectly. And for my reception, I wanted to wear something more western so I went with a formal gown. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
One of the best parts about wedding planning was definitely all the hours we put into dance practice for the Sangeet. This brought all the immediate and extended family together to be part of the planning process and it was absolute joy! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We were so happy that everyone loved everything the vendors provided eg. the decorations, food, music, our photographer/videographer, and florist. We had a lot of family flying in from all over the country and even from India. Everyone had a blast during our Sangeet, as in literally everyone was on the dance floor for hours! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I walked down the aisle to the mandap was my special moment. Seeing my future husband standing there waiting for me, all teary-eyed, made everything worth it. 
 
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.
We absolutely loved our decor for Sangeet and the reception. For the Sangeet, we went more towards Rajasthani style. Very vibrant colors, colorful camels as centerpieces on the tables, bright draping and beautiful Rajasthani umbrellas all around (the best part). For the reception, we went more fancy with blush pink draping and beautiful white flowers with gold columns. We had a dance floor for both Sangeet and Reception, and of course dhol players are a must! We had our special first dance with a fog machine. All the kiddos enjoyed the glow sticks during the dance party at the reception. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I would say, just take your time and relax. The best advice I received during my planning process is that if anything goes wrong, your guests will never know. They won’t know what’s supposed to happen and what’s not. Keep that in mind the day of the wedding, because it definitely isn’t worth the stress. Delegating tasks as much as you can on the day of is super important. You can’t be everywhere so use your bridesmaids, family members, friends, etc. they’re to help! Also, truly enjoy yourself at your wedding, it’s YOUR big day. Lastly, sleep, sleep, sleep! 
 

We still have one more stop before we wrap this celebration up! So, don't miss the upcoming wedding reception!
