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.
5 MAKEUP trails. Yes, you got it right I have a very special experience with the Hair & makeup artist, I have never been on makeup, I barely use it in daily life. I was so concerned about my D Day look that I went for 5 makeup trials with 5 different makeup artist and must have spoken to more than 15 of them. I didnt want them to change my features or the base of my skin tone. I was proud of being a brown skin dusky bride. And my fiance was very concerned too. At the end he started speaking to makeup artist just so that they understnad what we were asking them for. In surat, a makeup artist typically tries to create a fairer baseof the brides skin tone which makes the bride look not who she is. and this was the toughest thing to be booked. I was in Mumbai during planning of my wedding. I must have spoke to 15 artist in mumbai before speaking to the ones in Surat. Ms. Sejals studio is like the dream destination for brides to be, I got her reference from a to be bride friend and she was just way to confident about her. Ms. Sejals studio was  30 minutes away from the venue and would have taken just 1 hour to travel. and my parents got all finiky as to why do I have to travel so much to just get ready. but that was my last resort and that was the best decision i made.
 
We have another deep story with the venue, like I have been a very traditional girl at heart but at the same time very modern with my thoughts. I so wanted my wedding to happen at my home. but My father had already booked a 5 star resort property in Daman, and wanted a full fledged destination wedding. After numerous discussions and convincing sessions, the families agreed to do a wedding in surat ( my home town) , with the pheere happening at my uncles place because we could easily fit in all the guest in that location and have the reception in his apartment garden. but this was not it, on 2nd of february, when the d day was 20 days apart, the wedding venue changes to a wedding lawn( a garden area) with the pheere in the garden. this is not how i wanted, i never thought of getting married in a fancy place, for my a home is the most auspicious place from where the girl should be married. I cried, I opened my heart to my mom and my fiance to do something, I so wanted to get married from my own home. and finally after all the rona dhona and drama, on 15th february, my father finally decided that the pheere, will be at my home only the brides home . the feeling of bidai from brides own home, is what i wanted and i really was lucky to get it.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I selected more than 5000 bridal images from various online platforms in a span of 1 year to understand the best lengha look. I visted all designer studios in mumbai to just understand and see what I like. I finally went ahead to self design the lehenga . I must have tried 10 varittes of the pink i wanted. even after finallizing one shade, I rejected it after 1 month because i found abetter shade of pink. My fiance, Vishal is a beliver in lord Shiva, and my lehenga had the banaras ka ghat ( where lord shiva was first welcomed by lord vishnu) as its designs. The Banaras ghat and Shiva are very integral to the indian mythology. My lehenga also had his name at various spots, my nickanmes in the latkans and my dupata had 'Om' and 'Shree' as a part of its designs.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was doing everything on own. I had been following most of the prominent wedding portals and magazines since the day my father was searching for a potential life partner. I wanted the wedding in my own way, and i was sure about my decisions because I had planned 2 of my brothers weddings previously. I had a folder in my phone( i still have it) with more than 20,000 inspirational pictures of lehenga, decor, jewellery and event ideas gathered in a span of 1-1.5 year. I was so particular about every detail that the journey will be in my minds forever. the most enjoyable rather tough part was fixing our photographer. I had requested for quotes from more than 50 top photogrpahers from india, starting the process from August but hadnot been able to book the photographer until end of December, just because to me the memories of my wedding were very very important and we couldnot zero down to one good photographer. For a lot of people photography is the last thing they would like to book, but for me it was the first thing that i wanted to book and spend a good amount of money on creating memories.Finally we got whom we wanted and the pictures have been just mesmerizing
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our Haldi!!!Our haldi was a never ending event. It started with the traditional route to rituals but ended in the most fun way possible. I as a bride was loaded in haldi, with flower petals on me throughout the event, there were more than 15 kgs of rose petal,and marigold ( 3 colours) in the event. this was being showered on the bride groom and family. and there was a marwadi singer at the background who created the essence of dance, fun and immiginable memories. It is definitely a good decision to have some fun in your haldi, with flowers( like they call it pholo ki haldi) and have fun. Moreover, I as a bride was wearing a self designed flower Lehenga, which created a altogether different look as a bride to be and the family members were so interested & awed by it that they wanted to be with me throughout and the look was just too much. When my mother saw me the first time in this look, she almost had a drop of tear in her eyes:(
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Yes, there were quite a few. the first and the most important being the runaway bridal no makeup photoshoot. I was running late becuase of all the other functions and rituals. I had an makeup appointment booked for 1:30 pm,and i had to be at the venue by 6:30 pm. my photogrpaher was keen on clicking bridal solos in daylight and we had left for the makeupartist salon only at 4:30pm. Despite being late, we cooked up a story with the makeup artist to visit the temple before the dawn and left her studio at 4:30 promising her that we return in 15 minutes and eventually went for a photoshoot. I think this was the best moment of the day, where I went beyond the convetional ways of photoshoot, where the bride gets all decked up to be clicked, we just wore the lehenga in the studio, got jeweled up in the car and there we were shooting the 10 best solo images of my weddding day and yes without any makeup on me.
The another special moment which I am being mesmerized till date is the time when I walked the aisle with my parents on my side and my brothers holding the pholo ki chaadar. it was this walk of life where i saw my whole life transition and this walk is very very special to me. as i had my full family with me. After this walk, when both of parents handed my hand to Vishal, was the time i realizeed that okay now done , I am no more their Lado, I am now Vishals Akriti.
 
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.
So, I had a very special moment that I wanted to create in my wedding, and that was the sangeet, I have been dancing since I was 5 and have loved it. be it my brothers sangeet or my own sangeet I was very interested in adding a lot of creativity to the event. For my own sangeet I had this dream of dancing with my brothers, since I listened to this song "My desi girl" by Priyanka chopra, i also danced with my mother on 'Maiye ne Maiye ' and with my father on Dilbarao from Raazii. It was really the thing I enjoyed the most.
 
The other most special detail I would like to mention is the bridal entry song that was played, we had listened to 100 songs on youtube to finalize on this particular traack. We came down to songs where I could exemplify each of my family relationship. The first song being "Teri Khushiyann" - it is a brother sister song, Laadki and ungli pakad ke.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Definitely many !!!
The first thing a bride should focus on is her 'D Day Look', it is important to picture this and go ahead planning this. The very important point in deciding the look is to select between a traditional and a modern look, and whether or not to add that bit of touch of each other into the final look. Yes, I choose a very traditional look (like the color being typicall fusica pink and not red) but twisted it with modern stuff ( like pairing green jewellery). It is important because you will be bride only once.
The next word of wisdom is to be very careful with the blouse, the stitching the fit , the depth. Because only if the blouse is perfect will your jewelry pop out and your duppata will create that grace. Please do select your jewellery before your lehenga, because the matching has to be perfect. A diamond necklace might not blend the best with a jardosi work or ari tari, but a black polished gold jewellery goes so well with these. similarly, a diamond goes really well with all pastel coloured looks and sequence work. The third most important thing is to add variety in bridal dress for all the events. This creates a lot of pictures in different attires and also the more variety you wear you will love your bridal look more . ( the significance of wearing a lehenga only on wedding day will be awed by bringing variety to other events)
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I had written Vishals Name in 10 different Language on my 10 fingers on my mehendi.
My lehenga had my nicknames in latkans ( like all the names that my friends addressed me with, my family and definitely Vishal's love name also)
The Flower haldi Lehenga
the Jewelry was self desinged - i had visited more than 10 stores in surat to choose what I wanted but found no where, I spend 4 hourss to get my bridal bangles matching. I wanted to wear the mathapati but my mom was so skeptical on the look of it that I almost fought with her on this decision and finally on my makeup trial with the studio i had fixed the hair artist actually showed me book the looks and we finally decided the mathapati look.
I have also decked up myself with variety of vintage jewellery throughout in pre wedding functions. Most of them have been from my mothers wedding or my grand mothers wedding.
I have also re-worn my mothers bridal lehenga as a part of one of the Pre wedding functions. ( which was specifically for my mothers side of the family).
 
We are still blown away by all the beauty surrounding today's featured wedding that we need a moment to catch our breath. But make sure to join us tomorrow for more. You will be amazed!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Mohammad ("Mo") while I was doing my Master's program in Boston. He moved there for work. I was trying to be more social at the mosque, so I decided to go out with a group of people for bowling. Mo was working late that night, but one of his friends (who planned the bowling night) convinced Mo take a break and join us. That's the first night we met and hung out together.

When we met, it was an instant spark. As I got to know Mo as friends, I saw a lot of signs that pointed towards him being "the one". We got along really well, shared many of the same values and ideals in life, which for me was a rare find, and we supported each other with our goals and ambitions. There wasn't really one specific moment where I knew - I think there were lots of mini moments that confirmed that we were meant to be together through the course of our relationship.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We both come from a traditional family! So there was no proposal. We had a very traditional engagement ceremony with our family and friends, complete with the ring exchange, dinner, and dancing.

He did surprise me with the most amazing date night, with dinner at the same place as our very first date, a walk through our favorite neighborhood, and dropping down on one knee to ask me to marry him.....A MONTH BEFORE our wedding. I guess all the hints I dropped about wanting to be proposed to post-engagement really worked.

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.
Wedding planning was stressful because I was planning a 3 day wedding in Atlanta from Boston, but I started very early. I secured the venue, decorator, photo/videographer and caterer 10-11 months before the date. I relied mostly on word of mouth - vendors I knew have done an exceptional job in the past. I looked through Instagram and Facebook to see their work as well. I had a list of priorities where I knew I couldn't compromise on: food was a big one. At a desi wedding, the only thing that your guests care about is food. Photo/video was another priority because that's all that would be left to look at once the big day was over.

I will say, if I had to plan my wedding all over again, I would not change a single vendor. They were all so amazing to work with and they were truly amazing people that I got to know during that year of planning.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Most girls have a vision of how they want their dress to look like years and years in advance. I just knew I wanted my dress to be the traditional red. I had a few ideas (long top, skirt) but I was very open to other ideas. I traveled to Pakistan for my wedding shopping and relied on word of mouth about which designer would be the best one for me. The first (and only) place we went to was PLK (they're super well known in Pakistan), and that's where I got every single outfit designed (from scratch) for myself. Because I didn't have any specific idea or vision for the dress, I was able to mix and match designs, fabrics, shades of color, and styles for every inch of my wedding dress.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
THE FOOD. To this day, we have family and friends talk about how AMAZING food was at our wedding. I'm so glad I went with Asma's Cuisine. They catered my engagement dinner and I knew that day that they would be the only ones that would cater my wedding.

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 a very traditional 3 day desi wedding. The first day was mehndi, second was pithi/haldi + sangeet, and the third day was Nikkah in the morning with a reception in the evening.

I didn't have too many ideas for my decor, with the exception of the backdrop for sangeet and reception. Yasmin Khan of RoyalDekors really helped bring out my creative and visionary side and added her own experience and input to come up with decor that would look unique and beautiful for each event.

The dances at the sangeet were another favorite moment. Mo and my friends and our cousins did a 45 minute sequence of dances and a skit that portrayed our love story. We had a cousins/siblings dance for both sides, a girls dance, a guys dance, and a ShoMo dance followed by the skit.

Reception was quick because I really wanted to have a large amount of time dedicated to open dance floor. After our entrance, we had our first dance, cake cutting, speeches, and then we played the shoe game - you know, the one where we sit back to back holding one of each other's shoes as we get asked questions about each other - followed by dinner and dancing.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start planning early. Us girls have a very specific vision of how we want our wedding to be for years and years. And if that is the case with you, it is best to start planning well in advance to secure your vendors who can make your dream wedding a reality. Come up with a list of things that you do not want to compromise on (for me, it was food and photo/video) and set your budget accordingly. I also think it's so important to try and take your wedding day one moment at a time. The day really flies by fast so enjoy it as much as you can!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My makeup and hair was done by Saba Jawed of Color Impressions by Saba. She was so great to work with. Because I didn't have a clear vision for each look, she really worked with me to figure out how to make each look for every event beautiful and unique. She made me look and feel like a Maharani bride.

My mehndi was done by Nikki Karimi from Beauty you Deserve and I LOVED her work. I really wanted mehndi that was very intricate and that's exactly what she did.

I also decided to get fresh flower gajray bracelets made for my sangeet night. Gardlands by Yasmin did that and I think she also did an amazing job. I showed her the color of my outfit and she made beautiful bracelets to match my outfit.

My cake was made by Nausheen Amir of Inspirations Unlimited. I asked her to incorporate my bridal lengha designs into the cake and she did just that. The cake looked spectacular and really complimented by bridal lengha.

Have an awesome weekend, ladies! Remember to wash your hands, share time with your loved ones, and, most importantly, don't forget to join us on Monday for more!

Dearborn, MI Pakistani Wedding by Ayesha Khan Photography

Happy Thursday, Maharanis! Today's celebration of love is not just elegant but truly faithful to traditional Pakistani weddings, and we are sure you are going to love it. So, let's not wait any longer and get ready to enjoy Yousra & Adeel's big wedding bash! Being this a life-changing event, it is no surprise that this young couple wanted to immortalize all the moments surrounding it. That is why they decided to bring Ayesha Khan Photography on board, who snapped shots from every angle and created the spectacular gallery that we are sharing with you today. But that is not all! Yousra & Adeel also called New Signature Films, who produced a cinematographic delight that we can't stop seeing! It was so amazing that we couldn't help to feature it in today's Video Blog, so you might want to check it out as well! The wedding festivities started with a Mehndi ceremony hosted at the Golden Gate Banquet Hall, and we adored every moment of it. The colorfulness and the merriment of this opening ceremony became perfect preambles for what was coming down the road. And "What was coming down the road?" you might be wondering. Well, Yousra & Adeel had a beautiful Shadi at the Islamic Center of Ann Arbor, where they profess their love and commitment to each other. A fabulous Walima followed this solemn ceremony, and oh boy, we loved every bit of it. The halls of the Bellagio Banquet & Conference Center transformed into a cornucopia of elegance and traditional flair thanks to the fantastic decor crafted by Yasmeena Floral. There was so much beauty all over the place, but nothing quite as mesmerizing as our gorgeous Maharani, who looked breathtaking dressed in a fashionable lengha from Naz Fashion Bug, after being glamorized by Hair and Makeup by Aliaa. And let's not forget about the dazzling pieces of jewelry she got from Precious by Maira and Simmy Designs, and the artistic Mehndi designed by Zainab's Mehndi. It was all a winning combination resulting in a drop-dead gorgeous look! When dinner time arrived, all guests enjoyed the delicious plates prepared by Kazi Catering, right before having a bite at the mouth-melting cake baked by Petite Sweets Detroit. In between all the dancing, the delicious food, and emotional speeches, the night got to an end. But the end of the night was only the beginning of Yousra & Adeel's love story!

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.
I planned my wedding in a short-period of time (6 months.) So when I was planning I had to move quickly, I had been following my wedding vendors on instagram for sometime and as soon as a date was set I started getting quotes and finagling everything as quick as I could.
 
My wedding planning experience was overall very fun and hectic. I planned my wedding in under 6 months, after realizing the venue we had chosen only had that date, and nothing else for the next year or so! I had a great support system helping me plan. My vendors were amazing!! Especially my photographer & videographer. I had been following Ayesha on Instagram for a while and contacted her immediately after setting a date. Finding my videographer was a little harder, I was a little hesitant at first because he wasn’t “known” in the desi community but he did such an amazing job!!
 
Planning the decor was fun but a lot didn’t go in we plan. I fell in love with my stage after seeing it at another wedding on Instagram once so I insisted on using the same florist that did the same stage, but the experience was not as good as she missed many details we had gone over. Looking back she was the only vendor I wouldn’t recommend.
 
My hair & makeup were done by the same vendor! She was so nice and sweet. I had gone to her for a trial, my bridal shower makeup, & mehndi makeup as well. This was a great decision because by my wedding she was comfortable with my face and knew what worked for me and what didnt!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a wedding dress disaster!!! I ordered a dress from Pakistan originally,  but when it arrived it wasn’t what was advertised. So me and my mom got in a car the next day and drove to canada to find a dress. I went to a few stores, but I bought the dress that I first tried on. I loved the unique color, and the detailing.
 
My whole life I had planned that I would go to Pakistan to go dress shopping, but with the little amount of time that I had and because of budget restrictions, I chose to order my dress online. BIG MISTAKEEEEE. It was not what I expected, and after seeing it I knew I couldn’t wear it. Two days later me and my mom drove to Canada to visit bridal boutiques. That’s where I found my dress, it was the first dress I tried on. I always wanted to wear maroon, but once I saw my cranberry dress, I fell in love.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
For me the process of planning out the small details was the funnest!! I loved scrolling through my Pinterest/IG feed looking at everyone else’s wedding.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved our dessert table! It was so nicely put together & not to mention gorgeous. Our vendor mixed traditional desi desserts onto the table and I loved it! We also had a fresh jalebi maker in the kitchen!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A really special moment for me was when my mom was helping me get ready! I loved hearing our siblings speeches.
 
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.
My Mehndi was super colorful and fun! I ordered the dance floor cover from Pakistan, and loved all the color and detail on it. I made the canopy I walked in under, and I made the Shai Supari Wall For our Mehndi, me and my Husband learned our dance in the car after our photoshoot!!! We probably looked like idiots in front of everyone but we had fun.  Me, my mom, my dad built our shahi supari backdrop as well as the canopy I walked in under.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress & don’t over think it. Everything will work out. No ones even going to notice the small things you think are important. The venue completely messed up on my choice of linens and I didn’t even realize until I was looking at my wedding pictures. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Everything turned out great!!! My mehndi was done by a local mehndi artist!! A fun fact is she was the first person other than my mom to ever do my mehndi.
 
My jewelry was mix and matched between a local jewelry vendor and a vendor from Canada.
 
My cake was gorgeous & I loved it so much. I’m glad I decided to showcase it on my wedding stage.

What a fabulous wedding celebration, isn't it ladies? Remember that we have new stories every day, so make sure to join us tomorrow for more!

Serbia, Turkey & India Indian Fusion Wedding by CineLove

Happy Monday, beauty queens! A full weekend without your company feels like an eternity, but we are so excited to be back so we can continue sharing our passion for fantastic wedding celebrations! And today's featured wedding is nothing less than spectacular. It is so unique and filled with surprises that we can firmly say that this is unlike any other wedding that we have witnessed in quite a while. For starters, Bobana & Ansh's fairytale had three different destinations: Serbia, Turkey, and India. How amazing is that! Every event of this wedding was mesmerizing as breathtaking, and we find ourselves lost of words to describe the jaw-dropping attires and the swoon-worthy set-ups conceptualized and styled by none other than Meha Bhargava of Styl.Inc. The celebrations started with a heavenly Christian ceremony in Belgrade Serbia, which is Bobana's hometown. And oh boy, this opening ceremony was to die for! From the captivating decor crafted by Svadbena zvona to the ravishing look of our gorgeous couple, everything was amazing! The festivities continued in Antalya, Turkey, where they had a 3-day long, Indian wedding. A colorful Haldi, a fun-loving Mehndi, and a vibrant Sangeet were just the preamble for the full-traditional Indian wedding ceremony held at the Titanic Mardan Palace. This paradisiacal venue, which combines traditional architecture and a soothing natural environment, added an extra touch of uniqueness to this event, becoming the perfect backdrop for these lovebirds to profess their love and commitment to each other. The wedding festivities concluded with an unforgettable reception held at the Mor Bagh - New Delhi, where All in Organization & Events took care of the decor, and Manish Puri enlivened every moment with upbeat melodies. Hands down, Bobana & Ansh's had the wedding of their dreams! And this could not have been possible without a highly talented and experienced team like the one Bobana & Ansh's had by their side. So big kudos to Chapter 2 Events for the on-point planning and execution, Anjie Gogna for the ravishing look created for our gorgeous Maharani and CineLove for the marvelous shots that made this feature possible! Visit today's gallery for a full revel of this wedding!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He added me on IG 2 years prior but never messaged me. Finally 2 years later he messaged me on Instagram and we finally met each other a few months after messaging/talking on the phone. After getting to know each other, we discovered so many similarities between us amd our family. I slowly fell for him without knowing it, so when he popped the question, it was a no brainer for me.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were talking on the phone and he just asked me slickly, in the middle of a conversation, after I realized what he asked me, I of course 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.
I was avoiding planning the wedding for a month and a half but I would stress about not having it done. One Saturday morning in January I sat down and called and booked decorators, MUA, film/video, DJ. I met the DJ and videographer/photographer at the Dulhan Expo in NJ in December 2019 so that made it a little easier. Just as I thought I was in the home stretch, COVID-19 had other plans for our wedding! 2 weekends before we were supposed to get married (3/28/2020), we had to make the decision to postpone until a later unknown date, or we could make the best of an unfortunate situation. We decided to move the wedding up to 3/21/2020- one week ahead, and move the venue to my parents house. I ended up planning the whole wedding again, in 3 hours!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted our clothes to stand out- not be the typical red for the bride, and ivory for the groom. I had my magenta salwar kameez made from Punjab from a boutique. And I pushed my husband to wear a blue sherwani, which was also made in Punjab, India.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part was meeting the vendors! I am a very sociable person, so I loved the interactions between my family and the vendors. And although I had to make numerous phone calls to each vendor to change the plans, it was an enjoyable experience!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The 60 guests we were allowed to have at our house (gathering limitations in place due to COVID19) loved the traditional feel they got from our wedding. They loved the simplicity yet elegance of having a wedding within our own home.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The very first time I saw my husband which was when I walked down the aisle for the jai mala ceremony. Everything else is a blur!

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.
The bridesmaids had a dance planned, which unfortunately they couldn't perform due to the restrictions in place, I only had one of my bridesmaids at the wedding. We had to make a lot of the decor ourself as the big decorations weren't able to fit in our house, they were meant for our banquet hall.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
You can plan and plan and plan, but stuff always comes up (maybe not as big as a pandemic virus). Instead of focusing on how to get what you planned, always have a back up plan and be optimistic. Sometimes last minute plans are the best!

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 lady was choosen a few months ahead of time and she was absolutely pleasant- Shazia in Gaithersburg, MD. Decorations were done by RJ best events in Towson, MD. My MUA was a family friend, and none other than GlowbyHerneet.

What a fabulous wedding celebration to get inspiration from, isn't it, ladies? If you love today's love story, make sure to join us tomorrow for more!
