How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
A friend in NYC introduced my to my husband via text/facebook. We started talking and eventually met a few weeks later. I knew he was "the one" when I watched him plan his little sister's wedding and be such a great support system and brother to her.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

It was Valentine's Day Eve and at midnight, my now husband came over to me with flowers and a note. He said he and his family would come to Richmond on my birthday weekend. Richmond is my parents' hometown and I was bugging him for the past few months to have our parents meet. This was the unofficial proposal before the official proposal which happened a few weeks later at my parents' house in Richmond with all our loved ones around us.

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 had a lot of help from my husband since we decided to have all our events in Chicago, which was where he lived for the past 10+ years and I was in NYC when we were planning. I would come for weekends and we would look at venues. None of the dates were lining up at the venues. Then one day, I remembered an event we had gone to that didn't really utilize the atrium space but thought about how it would be perfect. The rest was history. For our mehndi, we spent our first New Years at the venue and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for this fun event. The nikkah venue was picked based on my southern roots and the fact that it looked like the southern mansions in Virginia. When we saw it, we knew.

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

Doing it as a team, through the good and bad.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

The quality and effort that was put into each event. They loved the boat exit surprise.

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

The ceremony, specifically the moment the imam was talking to us about marriage and our future.

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

Be patient. Be prepared. Expect problems but don't let it ruin your day. Enjoy your day and delegate when you can. But remember to enjoy the moment.
