Roselle, IL Indian Wedding by BM Photography

Welcome back, ladies! This love story continues its journey into Jinita & Jaydeep's happily ever after, and we are here to bring you all the details you want to know! This time we will take you to inside the halls of the Pearl Banquets to take part in this lovebirds' wedding ceremony, but we are heading off in style! We are joining Jaydeep in a vibrant and harmonious Baraat procession carried out by Maharaja Farm. This traditional ceremony had all the things we love: colored smoke, loud music, a white horse and of course lots of dancing. After the Baraat procession, Jinita & Jaydeep were ready to move on with the wedding ceremony that united their lives in marriage! Once again, Elegance Decor surprised us with an on-point decor that set the mood for this event. Although the setting was beautiful, it was Jinita who stole the show as she burst into the room. But there is no surprise here as she trusted her beauty needs to Makeup by Bushra, who praised her natural beauty with flawless makeup and hairstyle! Take a look at all the beauty surrounding this life-changing moment, with the magnificent shots captured by BM Photography and compiled in today's gallery. Go check it out!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Even though I (the bride) resided in Chicago and he resides in Florida, Jaydeep and I managed to find each other on Dil Mil (I have no idea how because I thought dil mil works through your location). I actually got the app due to one of my friends who kept nagging me to check it out. I had no desire to use it because looks was important to me and I had a perception of Dil Mil as an app that did not have cute guys lol. But after a long day at work one night, I was scrolling through my phone and noticed that I still had the app. I decided to click on it to open it for the very first time. To my surprise, Jaydeep’s handsome face popped up on my screen as the first guy and I couldn’t resist but to click the checkmark. As I did that, it instantly said that we matched which meant he had already checked out my page and liked it before. I didn’t think much of it so I just left it at matched and went to bed. When I woke up the next morning, I saw that I got a message from him and ever since that day we haven’t been able to go a full day without talking to each other. I knew he was “the one” from the moment we started talking because he reminded me of my brother due to his caring nature and sense of humor. I always told everyone that I would marry someone just like my brother because there’s no one I’m closer to on this planet than him and he cares for me like no one ever has; well besides Jaydeep now. :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Maui, Hawaii in 2018 because I had just passed my pharmacy boards and finally became a licensed pharmacist. He knows how much work and dedication studying for those boards are because he is also a pharmacist and graduated in 2016. So because of studying, we weren’t able to see each other for 3 months (the whole summer). As a reward, he decided to plan a trip to Hawaii. There was nothing on my mind because my brain was fried from studying so the only thing I could think of was to just have a relaxing and fun trip. He told me to pack lightly and just take one nice dress for a romantic dinner which seemed fair and sounded like any other vacay we’ve taken. On our third day, it was time for our dinner. It was up in the mountains and as we entered I saw photographers and thought “aww how cute. Someone’s getting married.” Then they started clicking away pictures of us and I got kinda confused but didn’t think anything of it. I turned around to fix my purse and the moment I turned back he was on one knee and I had no words and honestly doing recall anything he said besides, “I’ve been waiting for this day forever. Will you marry me?” Then there it was, and I said yessss to 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.
Since I had lived in Chicago for over 15 years, I have been to many weddings and knew vendors pretty well. My sister got married in 2016 and helping her with her wedding planning also made me get in contact with many of her vendors. I already knew who I was going to get with elegance decor being number one on my list due to their elegant reputation and amazing decor. I knew exactly what I wanted in my decor and when I spoke to elegance they just “got it” and understood me. I wanted an open mandap concept for the wedding ceremony so my guests can all feel part of the wedding and are not blocked off by obstructed views. Hair and makeup were done by one of the best in Chicago- makeup Bushra Abbasi and I absolutely loved her work! Enough that I’m flying her down to Florida to do my sister in laws wedding make up and hair! I loved pearl banquets lighting and twinkle lights on top so I knew I wanted to get married at pearl. We decided to keep all our events there to make it easier for guests that came in from out of town. Most of my family members reside in New Zealand and Fiji and the groom's family coming in from Florida, we had to do everything possible to make sure their transport to each event was easy and manageable.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We went to India for our bridal shopping. I knew I wanted something different and something without borders. I also knew I didn’t want much gold in there but I had always imagined myself getting married in red. So I knew it had to be red in color. Shopping was intense because I am usually so picky with my outfits. We went around to all of India to find the perfect lengha for me. Then in Ahmedabad, we finally managed to find the one I fell in love with. It had the right amount of work on it and didn’t have much gold! It also was the perfect shade and we customized the dupatta to make it pink to match Jaydeeps outfit because I didn’t want us to be too “matchy-matchy” with us both doing red.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
When my husband told me I could do whatever I wanted with the decor since this was my expertise! Lol

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our decor and how we managed to match our outfits so well!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Honestly, just have fun with each event. It goes by so quick and don’t worry about outside comments or critiques. Just make sure to have fun at every event because this day will never come again.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehndi outfit was designed by me and made in India. Our red bottoms were a great pop of red at our reception.

We are about to unveil a fantastic reception party that you don't want to miss, so stick around!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Zach had mentioned that he was making a jewelry box for me which I was expecting as a Christmas gift. He told me that he finished it early and wanted me to take a look at it. I opened it up to take a look inside and noticed that there was a ring box inside. As I realized what was going on, Zach took the ring box out of the jewelry box and got down on one knee. He then prepared a five course meal for me with all my favorite foods!!

 

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.

Since we got engaged around the holidays, we were lucky enough to both have a week off around Christmas time. We spent this week looking at vendors and venues. We had a few rough patches with nailing down a venue that would work with the flow of events we had in mind and ultimately visited the Westin in Princeton. We both knew pretty soon that this venue would be perfect for our event. Westin's event manager and her wonderful team was happy to accommodate all of our needs. It was also extremely convenient having a wedding at a hotel since all the key players in our wedding day were at the hotel the night before the wedding. Because of the venue's size and event space options, we were able to host our events in the different exciting spaces of the venue throughout the day.

 

After finding the venue, we quickly started finalizing our vendors and are still extremely happy with the awesome professionals we had the opportunity to work with. I recommend all couples to meet their vendors in person if possible prior to finalizing contracts.

 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I traveled to India for my wedding outfits. I went to Meeraj in Bangalore for my Hindu Ceremony and Reception outfit. I found both these dresses within an hour of visiting the store. I showed the clerk a picture of a couple of dresses I saw on Instagram that I liked and he was able to find me a few dresses from their collection that were similar. I had a fitting that day itself and the tailor had my dresses ready in five days and both dresses fit perfectly during the final fitting. My Sangeet dress is from Hind Collections in Pune and I was able to get the dress fitted there as well. My Christian ceremony dress was from David's Bridal. This was one of the only wedding dress stores that carried dresses that were more conservative.

 

I didn't have any specific colors in mind for any of my dresses. I just knew the overall style that I had wanted. I also had to specify to the clerks I worked with that the wedding was in the United States. They knew exactly what types of dresses were popular with their American customers.

 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?

The best part of the planning process was by far the food tastings. Both Zach and I are huge foodies so having great food options was very important to us. Moghul and Westin worked very hard to get us the perfect fusion menu. So many people came up to us during our wedding and complimented us on how delicious all the meals were. They especially loved the cocktail hour menu, which honestly was our favorite as well. Since food is so important to us, our wedding coordinators made sure that we were fed throughout the wedding day. We had four meals that day and Westin especially arranged a full cocktail hour display for Zach and I in the bride and groom suite.

 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests loved a lot about our wedding since most of Zach's side had never attended an Indian wedding before and most of my family had never attended an American wedding. We were able to capture the best of both of our cultures in our wedding day.

 

They especially appreciated how organized and on time all of our events were. Full credit for this goes to our amazing wedding coordination team, Planories, and our amazing venue event coordinator, Ginger. So many of our Indian guests were pleasantly surprised at how well managed the flow of the day was and how every event had started exactly on time.

 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

There are four specific moments that stand out to me during our wedding week. Each of them involved seeing our event space decorated for the first time as we had planned. Nirali decor did a phenomenal job with the event spaces. I specifically remember walking to the mandap as it was my first time seeing the wedding hall. I was trying my best to make sure I wouldn't trip and fall while also trying to absorb how beautiful the mandap was. The next most memorable moment was getting a sneak peek of our reception hall with all the reception decor and uplighting from our DJ.

 

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.

For our sangeet, we went with the standard sangeet style decor. Lots of bright colors and lots of dancing. Our families did a bunch of performances for us. Zach's cousins and my cousins surprised us with joined the organized dance. Zach and I performed to some Bollywood music as well. Seeing Zach dance for the first time shocked and impressed our families.

 

For our reception, we went with a theme that matched the outfits we wore. We tried to keep the speeches and dances to a minimum. We had a father-daughter dance, mother-son dance, and a first dance. We also had five speeches- our fathers' speeches, my brother's speech, Zach's best man's speech, and our speech. This allowed us to get our dinner buffet started a bit earlier and get the dancing started early as well. I know our guests enjoyed being able to hit the open bar and open the dance floor early in the night.

 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Make sure to know what your priorities are for your wedding day. Communicate this with your wedding team and key players in your wedding. Also, make sure to hire vendors that you feel comfortable with because you will end up spending most of your day with this group of people. Planning is key in making sure you have a smooth wedding day. Things are inevitably going to go awry, but it's important to enjoy every moment and remember your guests won't be able to tell if things have gone wrong. Absorb the happiness and joy that your families, friends, and guests are experiencing with you. A happy bride is a beautiful bride!

 

There are still more beautiful and inspiring ideas right around the corner! So make sure to stay close if you don't want to miss it!
