Maharani Simran, on meeting the Raja of her dreams, Prabhdeep:
"Prabhdeep and I met in the summer of 2011 and it was an immediate connection. We had actually met as kids 10 years ago in India and I never knew I would see him again. He lived in Toronto, Canada when I met him and I was from LA. After that summer, our long distance relationship of 3 years began. It went from facebook messages to Skype calls to meeting every 2-3 months at different locations through North America. It was the time when he visited me in LA and bonded instantly with my family making me realize that he is "the one"."
On her Raja's proposal:
"I always wanted to have a cute proposal but he never believed in proposals. Therefore, when he actually did, it came as a total surprise. The setting was perfect, we met in New York for Valentine's Day. It was freezing cold and he suddenly decided to visit Central Park. As we were strolling through the park, he took me to this romantic aisle where he got down on one knee and proposed. It was the cutest gesture ever. The best part was that he had taken my mother's approval before the proposal."
On her wedding style:
"I kept my wedding style very traditional. Right from jewelry to my bridal lengha to the décor, I wanted to keep everything very authentic. I focused on bright colors such as orange and pink to enhance our culture and traditions. Getting an orange lengha was very hard since its not the most popular color in lenghas. Hence, it took a lot of research to find that one lengha that would fit my traditional style. Also, I was lucky to have some amazing decorators who were able to match the wedding style I was going for. My mother and sister played a key role in deciding my jewelry and outfits. They helped me create the perfect Maharani."
On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:
"The most enjoyable part of planning this dream Indian wedding was the research that involved meeting new people. I would spend hours looking at pictures and work of different vendors on the Maharani Weddings website and admiring how rich our culture is. This process taught me a lot about different cultures and ethnicities and how grand our weddings are. It inspired me to portray our rich culture and traditions through our dream wedding. I also met some amazing vendors through this process, who work really hard in this profession and help create some amazing weddings. Also, the fact that my temple, Antelope Valley Sikh Center, was hosting only its second wedding gave me the freedom to decorate in accordance to my wedding theme."
On working with MUA, Nida Gazi:
"The moment I saw Nida Gazi's work on Instagram, I knew that she would be the person to get me the ideal look for my wedding. I had this Punjabi bridal look in mind with my jewelry and make up. Nida did complete justice to the look I wanted to create. From the setting of the jhumar to tikka setting to my dupatta, she created the perfect maharani look I was going for."
Have a splendid weekend my dears!
