Sikh weddings are one of our favorite kinds, because all the pomp and boisterousness is perfectly offset with the serenity of the Gurudwara ceremony. Eleven years in the making, and Jaspreet and Gurjit’s love story was finally brought to life by Motion 8 Films in this same day edit. A traditional Haldi ceremony marked the beginning of their nuptial weekend, which smoothly transitioned into a vibrant Sangeet complete with Bhangra, Koris and Suhaags, at The Falls Event Center. Jaspreet opted for a customary Punjabi attire head-to-toe, in a colorful checkered kurta paired with a bright green georgette lehenga. Her bold Arabic look entailed dramatic smokey eyes and a traditional Parandhi, by Hanifa Hashimi. “With the help of my sisters and cousins, we created bold centerpieces using colorful baskets filled with special favors, and had tables of colorful bangles and candles to pull it all together”, said Jaspreet. Gurjit kept his Sangeet look simple in a navy blue kurta. Jaspreet extensively used Pinterest to plan the overall look of her wedding, and stumbled upon the Maharani Weddings Pinterest page, which inspired her to incorporate pearls into her wedding. Jaspreet gave a special shoutout to JD Wedding Cards “for being so patient with (her) during the process of designing customized wedding cards.” Maty's Linen & Decor spruced up the Selma Gurdwara, the Sikh Center of the Pacific Coast in a modest and elegant manner, adorning the aisle with glass vases, and floral work in pastel tones, in keeping with the bridal party’s outfit choices while Sai Decor produced the stunning reception. Jaspreet designed her own mirror-infused cream lehenga inspired by the work of Manish Malhotra and Tarun Tahiliani, and Gurjit donned a traditional cream sherwani. The beginning of their happily ever after was showcased at the reception at Mirage Banquet Halls later that day. Hit play to relive their beautiful day!
