How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Kevin and I met each other in 2009 during our freshman year at Penn State University. We were introduced through one of our good friends. The next thing we knew, we were spending almost every day together, scheduling classes together, going to football games, study dates on the weekends and eventually we became best friends. He asked me out in 2013 and we were in a long distance relationship until I finally moved in with him in 2018! I don't really feel like there was one defining moment where I knew for sure that I was in love with Kevin. It's been just a multitude of things/moments that made me sure of my feelings for Kev. Even though we've had our fair share of struggles, our relationship has always felt easy for me because Kevin has always put me first in his life and made me a priority. He has always made me feel like I can be my silly self around him 24/7! He has been the most supportive partner I could have asked for and he was my best cheerleader during Physician Assistant school. He made me feel that I could grow into my own person and yet still be with him and that made me fall in love with him more and more each day. It's easy to give up in a long distance relationship but his constant effort to keep communication up and count down days till we next saw each other made me so happy and loved. Most of all, he makes it a point to be close to my family which has always been so important to me. The respect and care he gives to my parents and brother is so nice to see and I know my family loves him for that. Saying goodbye to him when we graduated Penn State (when we were still just friends) was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do and knowing that I would probably never see him again was when I was so sure I wanted to be with him always. He was and is my best friend and I couldn't picture life without him.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was still in PA school at the time in Oakland, California so I went to visit him in San Diego on a weekend. Our first date was at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego and on Friday the 13th (4/13/17) he wanted to take me back to Sunset Cliffs for a date. We started the day off by going to his work together. He was beyond nervous and was pacing back and forth in his office. I asked him what was wrong and he attributed it to the meeting he was going to have with his boss later that afternoon (I totally believed him!!). Later that evening, we packed up some snacks in his backpack and headed over to Sunset Cliffs. We strolled the spot hand in hand waiting for the sunset. He told me I was beautiful and the best friend he could've hoped for. He asked me if I wanted to have a snack while we waited for the sun to go down and I said yes! So he got behind me, took his back pack off and he called out my name. I turned around and he was on one knee asking me to marry him. I was so emotionally overwhelmed and felt paralyzed at that moment. I said yes and it was by far the best decision of my life.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I did quite a bit of research for my bridal lehenga and my wedding dress. I had saved tons of ideas on a pinterest board and instagram. I ended up getting my bridal lehenga from "Pooja Sarees" in Ambala. As for the white dress, I had picked out a few options online but I went into "Luv Bridal" in San Diego knowing the one dress I absolutely had to try on. Of course as soon as I tried it on, I fell in love with it.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I always knew I wanted to go back to India to hand pick all my outfits, jewelry, etc. Going with my mother just made it that much more special. She played such a great role in helping me pick out everything from my bridal lehenga, the jewelry, bridal heels, to my mehendi and haldi outfits. She made planning more emotional than I thought it would be and it gave us a chance to spend a little extra time together before I got married
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The Mehendi was hosted at my parents house two days before the wedding. I sat down next to my mehendi artist with my arms out, my family was playing "Mehendi Hai Rachne Wali" from the movie Zubeida and the next thing I knew tears were rolling down my face. Getting the mehendi on my hands felt so symbolic of the beautiful stage of my life that I was about to embark on. The other extremely memorable moment for me was being escorted by my four brothers to the mandap during the Hindu ceremony surrounded by all our family and friends. Kevin and I looked at each other and we were so ready to start the rest of our lives together.

Don't go too far, because this fantastic love story just started and there is more coming down the road!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband is my childhood friends. If you asked me several years ago if I thought I was going to marry him, the answer was probably no. But as the years went on and our friendship grew I realized he truly was my best friend and that friendship later grew into love.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He proposed to me at a Race Street Pier in Philadelphia! We both went to school in Philly and we both always loved going to Race Street Pier!
 
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 an Indian wedding seemed crazy and was crazy, but we loved every part of it! Our wedding vendors were awesome! Shout out to Wedding design for creating a very elegant enchanted garden theme, Cinderella Bridez for an amazing job with hair and makeup! Our photographers Manish and Sung were great!! Our videographer Williamson with Parkstreet was soo talented and truly and amazing guy to work with! And our DJ was D&S and “there aint no party like a DNS party”
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had an idea of what I wanted before I went to India. The fifth dress that I saw at the first store I went to, to look for my wedding dress, was exactly what I had in mind. I think of my self as fairly lucky as that doesn’t happen often when most people travel to India! I also ended up buying the reception dress from the same store, that same day! Gauri Heritage in Vadodara had a great collection! My garba outfit was from Friendship in SantaCruz Mumbai and they also had a great collection.


Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
For our reception we had 4 live birch trees for decor which were 28 feet!! We both love nature, so it was awesome incorporating it into the decor. We later donated the trees to the community!
 

Get ready to have fun! There is a fabulous reception coming your way, so don't miss it out!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Arpit and I matched on a dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel, in February 2017. For our first date, we had intended to only go out for dinner, but ended up going to three different places just to make the date last longer. Over the next few weeks we were talking multiple times a day, and the chemistry just kept getting stronger. I knew this was it when the feelings I developed for him were like none other I had ever experienced before.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It's incredibly difficult to keep secrets from me, I'm too observant. Turns out Arpit had planned my proposal by getting my cousin Shilpa involved as his sidekick. I'm always her backup plus-one for events, and she had asked me to accompany her to an engagement party for a good friend of hers. On the way to the party, she told me she had to stop by a flower shop to pick up a few things for the engagement venue. We went to the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, a beautiful park in Lincoln Park Chicago and was approached by a girl who had told us the park was offering a scavenger hunt. I immediately declined since we were only there to pick up flowers (and of course, we're in evening dresses and high heels) but Shilpa said we still had plenty of time before the party. The girl handed me a canister with a scroll, which said to get ready for a journey and to search for the first clue. I looked up, and the girl was gone. I immediately thought this was a little creepy, and told Shilpa that we should go. She said she saw the second clue on a rock not too far away, and we should give it a try. Long story short, Arpit had set up clues all around the park, which led me to him standing under a bridge. He proposed, and I was definitely not expecting any of it! To make it better, the girl who had given me the first scroll was the photographer he hired to capture the proposal! :)
 
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 for 5 events (Mendhi, Grah Shanti, Sangeet, Wedding, and Reception) meant 5 iteniraries, menus, outfits, decor schemes, hair and makeup looks, etc. I really had to get organized, so I made my own wedding planner book that I took to every vendor meeting and used to put inspiration in.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I really wanted to go the traditional route for my bridal lengha. I chose a bright, beautiful red with gold stitching.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved that Arpit was just as excited about wedding planning as I was. We worked together on most things and I think that made it a lot more fun.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The food was definitely a hit. Also, we loved surprising our guests! During the Sangeet, Arpit and I put on a surprise dance performance, and during the reception, we surprised our guests by driving into the reception hall!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
This was a behind the scenes moment that always brings a smile to my face. After we came back from the Vidaai, I had about one hour before I had to shower and start getting hair and makeup done for the reception. We were both in Arpit's hotel room and he was in a shirt and sweatpants, and I was still in my lengha. I realized there would be no way I would be able to eat and then fully undress myself in time, so two of my amazing bridesmaids, Amber and Forum, came to our room and took out the dozens of bobby pins in my hair and the safety pins in my dress while I ate. We were laughing most of the time and it was one of those little moments that made a lot of the wedding stress go away.
 
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 reception was my absolute favorite. I had envisioned a starry night theme with dark colors and bright stars, and my wonderful decorator, Red Umbrella, made it all come to life. By the the best moment was when everyone was facing the front doors for our entrace, but instead we drove in the side service entrance and around the hall to the front of the dance floor.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Get organized and remember the bigger picture. At the end of the day, it won't matter that you ran out of a certain appetizer or that your favorite song wasn't played. This is your wedding day, have fun and don't let one little thing ruin your mood.

That is all for today, darlings! We hope you are ready to face the last part of the week fully motivated and inspired! See you tomorrow for more!
