Fairfax Station, VA Sikh Wedding by Catch Motion Photography

Happy Friday, ladies! We can't think of a better way to get to the weekend than taking a look at Joyti & Sonny's wedding festivities. So, without further ado, let's jump right into it! The couple’s wedding festivities kicked off with a colorful and vibrant Mehndi that we are sure you are going to love as it was beautiful beyond words! This pre-wedding ceremony was full of extravagance, Indian flair, vibrant colors, and lots of fun! And we are so glad Catch Motion Photography has taken us along for the ride through their fantastic shots! SW Events designed this pre-wedding event to perfection while Yaadein Weddings followed their lead, creating a minimalist but lovely decor featuring multicolored hues that everyone loved. Although everything was captivating, it was Joyti who stole all the looks dressed in purple lengha with golden embroidery after being glamorized by Sonia Iqbal. Without any question, this was the best way to kick off with the wedding festivities! See all the details of this Mehndi at the gallery that we have prepared for today!

Playa del Carmen, MX Indian Wedding by Sarani Weddings

Hello there, ladies! We have arrived at part three of this real-life fairytale, and believe us; you are up for quite a visual treat. So, get ready to enjoy this fantastic reception party hosted at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya! Once again, Indian Destination Weddings showed why they are famous for being the best ally when planning an International Destination Wedding in Mexico as their work is absolutely amazing!

That is why Gopi & Ronak decided to bring Dhoom Events Indian Wedding DJ on board as they have a real talent in turning every event into a never to forget party! There is no wonder why everyone danced the night away and only stopped to enjoy the delicious food prepared by the catering team from Hard Rock Riviera Maya. Everyone had such a great time that booth from Quiroo Photobooth never stopped taking pictures to keep a good memory of the evening! And talking about pictures, you don't want to miss the visual masterpieces from Sarani Weddings in today's gallery! Every single shot is so amazing that it almost feels like if you are seeing the images of a princess fairytale! So, go check them out!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ronak and I met my freshman year of college at a dance competition we hosted at UT Austin. We randomly kept in touch as friends for several years after that and met up again in Chicago when I went to visit some friends in 2014. We talked nonstop after that and officially started dating a few months later. We did long distance for about 2.5 years before we both moved to Philadelphia to finally be closer to each other!
 
I'm not sure if there was an exact moment in time that I knew Ronak was "the one", but I knew pretty early on that he was someone I could see myself spending the rest of my life with. :)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ronak proposed on Friday, October 5th, 2018 at a gazebo behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I arrived thinking I was just attending a 'Yelp Elite' wine tasting event with my soon-to-be sister-in-law and another friend. When we arrived at the top of the hill and started walking towards the gazebo I saw Ronak standing in the middle of it, suited up and looking as handsome as ever. :) I immediately started to cry (lol) and he held out his hand and asked me to dance (he had 'Thinking Out Loud' playing on his phone in his pocket haha). He said a bunch of sweet things that I can honestly hardly remember but before I knew it, he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! Then both of our families came and surprised me, and we all went to dinner together. Just when I thought the night couldn't get any better, Ronak pulled off one final surprise by throwing a huge party with all our closest friends at the rooftop of his apartment building. It was truly one of the most perfect days! :)
 
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 off venue shopping in Texas last year (where I'm from and where my parents live), thinking that's where we'd be hosting the wedding. After spending an entire weekend looking at venues and hotels that all looked the same, I came back to Philly and complained to Ronak that I didn't find one I loved. He threw out the idea of doing a destination wedding, and I laughed and said our parents would probably never agree to that. Long story short, they agreed and we decided on a destination wedding in Mexico, and it was honestly one of the best decisions we made!
 
Besides working with Ateet Ahuja from Indian Destination Weddings to help our guests get booked, I decided to do all the planning myself. I'll admit it was very hard at times since the majority, if not all, of the planning was done via email since we weren't able to go meet our vendors in person. But honestly all the vendors there are great to work with, and so understanding of what we need for an Indian wedding. Here's who we worked with for everything:
 
Travel Concierge: Indian Destination Weddings

Venue: Hard Rock Riviera Maya

Decor: Latin Asia
Florist: Tulipania
Food: Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Hair/MUA: Alex Corbanezi Beauty & Co.
Photo/video: Sarani Weddings
DJ: Dhoom Events - DJ Milin Jani
Audio/video equipment: PSAV Mexico
Entertainment:
Producciones Arteum - salsa lesson for our Welcome Fiesta and live saxophonist for the cocktail hour
 
Drums in Paradise - dhol player and vintage car for the baraat
 
Pyrotech - cold fireworks for the reception
 
Quiroo photobooth - photobooth at the cocktail hour and reception
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I didn't really have a clear cut vision of what I wanted, but I'm so glad I took the time to try on a variety of styles because I really didn't like some of the styles that I thought I'd love. I went home to Houston one weekend to get some shopping done, and after looking up and down every store on Hilcroft and not finding anything, we decided to check out Panache by Sharmeen, as I'd heard great things about her and her selection. We originally went to look for reception outfits there, but my sister came across this beautiful red lehenga. She made me try it on and we all fell in love with it! Sharmeen worked with me on making a custom blouse for it since I knew I wanted to have emerald green, and we also custom made the dupatta's I wore. I love how it all turned out and Sharmeen was great to work with!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Probably selecting the decor details and then seeing it all come together towards the end! And of course having the weekend go as smoothly and flawlessly as possible, and hearing our guests tell us how much they enjoyed everything was just the cherry on top :)
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
From what we've heard, everyone really loved and appreciated the uniqueness of the destination wedding. I know they're getting increasingly popular these days but the majority of our guests had never attended one, and everyone just loved how our wedding also served as a mini-vacation for them!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It truly went by in the blink of an eye, but seeing Ronak on our wedding morning for our first look photos is a moment I'll never forget. :)
 
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.
Check out my wedding highlights on my Instagram page for all the deets :)
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process! Wedding planning isn't always the most fun, but it pays off and will truly be the most memorable time in your life! Also, try on different styles of outfits before committing to one! Everything always looks better on Pinterest, but you may not always love how it looks on yourself. :)
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through mutual friends about 11 years ago. We were just acquaintances and ran into each other here and there over the years. Once I moved to Dallas, we got closer and became really good friends and then it just happened!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We actually both proposed to each other! I was secretly planning mine and he was planning his. Both of our sisters knew about it and didn't tell either of us. The most synchronistic part...we planned them 3 days apart. He beat me to it though and proposed first.

He did a Dil Toh Pagal Hai themed proposal because that is his FAVORITE movie. He transformed our home into a movie set and made every room a different scene from the movie. He had lines written down for me to play along with. He even had me do outfit changes similar to the ones Madhuri Dixit wore in the movie. It was so magical! In the end, he planned a little late-night dinner upstairs with an "Italian view." Everything came full circle then. He pulled out this game called "The Love Game" that I used on him when we first starting hanging out years before. Of course back then it wasn't called the love game; it was just a questionnaire to get to know someone on a more intimate level. After all that, he proposed and I did a cake smash! Both of our sisters came out of a room and surprised me and then we FaceTimed my parents who were dressed for the occasion.

My proposal was more public. I had it at the Don Quixote theater in Deep Ellum. It was a continuous dance number of all the songs that he loved growing up until that point. I had my friends, his friends, and our sisters in on it. After the whole dance sequence finished, he met me upstairs in the dressing room where I was down on one knee with our dog. He loved every second of it! The highlight of the whole dance was Ek Pal Ka Jeena from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai. He said that song changed his life along with many other teenage boys at that time. His sister took the lead on that and crushed 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 was so simple for me because I remembered that I had to stay organized. I booked everything a year or even more in advance. We really didn't want a big wedding to be honest. We were happy going to court and signing papers and calling it a day. We did it for our parents since we were both the eldest in our families. What we told ourselves throughout the whole process is we are doing it for us and no one else. I think it's important for every couple to remember why they are getting married to begin with.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted a deep velvet red. During our shopping, we looked at so many and it can get confusing at times too. I had to come back the next day and my decision totally changed. I wanted something different and unique and I think I picked the perfect dress for that.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was having so much support from everybody! From our family to our close friends, everyone was so happy and so willing to help at any given point.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think our guests loved the music! Our DJ was amazing! They were from New Jersey known as D&S Event Solutions. We had a video wall during our reception which highlighted our pictures, same day edit, and amazing graphics that those guys came up with. Their MC was AMAZING! He really knew how to engage the crowd. I also think the biggest highlight was my mother's dance during our Sangeet with a special appearance by my father. It was great.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The part that replays the most was me walking down the aisle and Dilan waiting at the other end. The priest let him see him because he wanted to give me a rose and locket as soon as I got to the front. He was tearing up, which made me tear up! What was extra special about it was that I let him choose my aisle song. He did not listen to that song until our wedding day and waited for that moment. That was the most magical part.

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 had so many different components to our wedding. First one was that we had a double baraat. I, the bride, had my own baraat. We both had vintage Cadillacs and met in the middle. I believe there was a moment from that featured on Bollyshake. Second, during our reception, we did a sand ceremony, which was my husband's idea. Also during our reception, he wrote several shayari's (Hindi poems) that he wanted to share with me and everyone in attendance. During our Sangeet night, we had a casino night going on at the same time in which the chips were turned in for raffle tickets and we gave out prizes in the end.

Side note: while filming for our pre-wedding shoot, we decided to incorporate a water gun fight in our video which was so fun to do!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I want to tell all Brides-To-Be that it doesn't matter what happens, things go wrong, and things also go right. The most important thing to keep in mind is to remember why you want to get married in the first place.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The pictures can tell you everything about our wedding! There was so much love and joy from everyone and we did not want it to end! We loved every moment.  

 

That is all for today! It is time to get back from this dream and to continue with your day, but we hope to see you here tomorrow for more! Until then, have a great one!
