You have a visual masterpiece down below, and you also have the fantastic shots of this wedding celebration here. Both are a fabulous creation from Sameer Soorma Studios, who made sure to capture every detail from this life-changing event. The Sikh ceremony hosted at the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple was simply amazing! So much beauty and traditional flair, all in one single place! After the ceremony, Manpreet & Amandeep threw a fantastic wedding reception at the Aria Dining & Banquets Fine Indian Cuisine, a perfect venue chosen to celebrate their lovely union. We are almost out of words to describe how enchanting and magical everything was! The decoration crafted by Touch of Elegance Decor, and of course, the captivating floral arrangements that Nazooq Petals created for the big day were something out of this world! Although everything was beautiful, nothing even compared to how ravishing Manpreet was! She definitely made the right choice when trusting her beauty needs to Neetu Josh Art Co as she ended up looking like the most beautiful princess from a fairytale story! So, don't think twice, click the play button down below, and get ready to enjoy this enchanting story!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Aman and I met through mutual family friends. When I first saw him, I told myself, “oh no, definitely not. He can’t be the one”. We first met at Starbucks and exchanged some conversations. After the conversation at the Starbucks we happened to figure out that this friendship will go further than we expected. I was surprised by his generosity. 
 
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.
We had about 5 months to plan the entire wedding including booking Venues and vendors. We rushed in to book all the venues and vendors that we liked before they get booked. It was overwhelming at first since there wasn’t enough time to plan everything but we made work out great.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted to wear traditional red color for the wedding day. I went to India to shop for wedding outfits, jewelry and accessories.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I enjoyed traveling and shopping even though it was stressful but I enjoyed it.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Guests loved the wedding and my whole family being there for me. Everyone was impressed by my family being there and hosting the wedding all together.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The special moment at my wedding that constantly replays in my mind is getting glammed up with my outfits and makeup. I just love getting full glammed!
 
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 hired one decor vendor for all the wedding events including Mehandi, jaago, wedding and reception. We were very specific about decor theme, colors we want for each event. It was a lot of work and planning things in small details so everything can go smooth for the events.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It can be very stressful to plan the entire wedding and sometimes you forget to enjoy the moments because your too busy planning and stressing out for your big day, don’t forget to enjoy each moment. Cherish them! This is your moment.
Wedding doesn’t have to be expensive but to be memorable.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

Charlotte, NC Indian Wedding by Sculpting With Time Productions

The filmy moment of the day is here! Today, we are taking you to Charlotte, NC, to witness the beauty of Neelima & Krishna's wedding festivities. We can enjoy this marvelous moment thanks to the fantastic talent of Sculpting With Time Productions; their excellent team created a visual masterpiece for the newlyweds could enjoy all the glory of their special days in the years to come. From the beginning, we knew that this was a memorable event, just because our friends from Ask Neha Now designed and planned all the festivities for our lovebirds. Such talent! The Westin Charlotte was selected by our lovely duo to tie the knot inside their halls and trust me; it was a perfect choice as everyone enjoyed the venue and the attention their great staff they provided. Neelima, stole all the attention, as she showed up looking precious. This was thanks to the great hair and makeup combo that MAU Makeup By Jenny Le designed and the beautiful hairdo Hair by Anna Pham created for our queen. What an excellent choice! This event was one of a kind, so if you want to be inspired, go ahead and click on play below. You can't miss it I'm sure you'll love it! 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Krishna and I actually met online on the app Coffee Meets Bagel. I was quite intrigued by his profile so once we matched, we started to speak to one another over the app. Approximately 2-3 weeks later we met in person. I almost decided to cancel our first date in August but then I said to myself to take a chance and see where it takes us. We met in person for the first time on August 7th, 2016 at one of Krishna's favorite restaurants. Our conversation during our first date was memorable because our conversation felt like we knew each other for years. And what I thought would be a 2 hour date became more like a 7 hour date! As the conversation deepened, we found out more about one another including the fact that we were from the same region in India let alone the same town! That's when I realized it was the cherry on top of the sundae! After talking for several weeks while I was out of the country, I realized that I knew he was the one. And when we both met again in which we claimed as our "second" first date, well the rest was history.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
WOW. To be honest, I have to give a lot of credit to Krishna. He planned our proposal from beginning to end without any glitches. I was at work one evening when he told me that he needed help shooting for a wedding- yes he is a cinematographer. He told me that it was for a VIP couple and the theme was a yacht party. So we had to dress up. Now, at the same time, our parents were coming up for the weekend to meet Krishna's parents. So I was like "how can I leave them for the day? You need to ask their permission." He said, "no problem, i'll take care of it." Well while I was thinking about what I needed to wear, he said wear something "blue" since it was a yacht based theme party. And to top that, he said George Clooney would be there! So the day before our proposal, we picked up my family and I was asking them what to wear as I needed to look professional but also wear something where I knew I could also help him through the wedding shoot. My sister was amazing because as I was trying on clothing, she was actually playing behind the scenes and sent all of my outfits to Krishna - and they coordinated on which blue dress would match Krishna's blue suit. At the end of the night, Krishna told me that I had to keep a secret and be there on time because "Hilary" would be there and there would be gates closing the park. And I said "which Hillary? Hillary Duff or Hillary Clinton?" And that's when he was like "the Hillary". So of course, I got excited.
 
So on the morning of June 3rd, 2017, I made sure I reached the park on time. He started walking over to me explaining how stressed out he was because there were some glitches to the wedding shoot. I told him to not worry. When we arrived closer to the pond, he asked me to look out for a few photographers. That is when he re-directed himself to a specific corner where he knew he would propose at. Everyone was ready. He then told me to come to that corner as he "found the photographers" and that is when he proposed to me! I was in shock and of course said "YES!" But it wasn't over. Krish's family and my family were actually meeting at Bethesda fountain where they met for the first time. Krishna then continued to surprise me through the day with meet ups with many of our close friends and family! It was beautiful night with a beautiful beginning to the rest of our lives!
 
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.
Since Krishna worked in the wedding industry, he had all of the ins and outs to planning our wedding. My parents primarily helped with the venue, food and the priest and took that off of our hands. Everything else was mostly completed by us with the help of a few key people!
 
Wedding Planner: Neha Joshi: Our wedding planner, Neha was fantastic! She helped Krishna and I organize everything, who to contact and who to keep her in contact with- that way I didn't have to over stress myself. She was great with creating a timeline for our events and the day of the wedding made sure we were all running on time and that there were no hiccups. Neha also knew when I needed a hand to hold and a shoulder to cry on. She was always supportive not just as a planner but also as a friend.
 
Venue: Westin Hotel, Charlotte, NC: Our venue was perfect. It had tall ceilings and a lot of space to work with. Our coordinators Betsy and Eric were extremely responsive to all of our emails and were also accommodating in making sure the weekend events all went smoothly.
 
Hair and Makeup: Anna Pham and Jenny Le: I will say word of mouth is a great way to meet other vendors. Many of my friends were also getting married within the same year in NC! I loved how the Jenny and Anna did their wedding looks, so I decided to use them as well as their work was flawless and their attitudes and personality were so positive! They couldn't have been a more perfect pair to work with!
 
Outfits were overall a piece of cake. I wasn't too picky and when I saw something I liked, I went for it. The only outfit I took some time to work on was my Sangeet outfit. A very close friend of mine and fashion designer, Punarvi Patel helped design my Sangeet outfit. It was quite unique and brought so much elegance. I already knew Punvari was an amazing fashion designer but when I saw what she put together, I couldn't stop smiling.
 
Decor: Utopian Events: We initially wanted to have an outdoor wedding but since it was a hot summer, we knew we had to look at other options. So with our wedding being indoors, we decided to have the theme of "Outdoor meets Indoor". Shushil and his team worked extremely hard in creating such a beautiful piece of work that represented both Krishna and myself. With Neha's help, as a team we were able to organize our thoughts and ideas and execute a truly remarkable piece. Our thought process behind the Mandap was that it should be the visual corner stone of our day but be extremely practical and cost effective. Krishna is a cinematographer by trade and has nearly a decade of experience in the wedding industry, so he had a strong foundation of ideas to go into the design. The Mandap was primary chosen to be hanging as it would be utilized for both the wedding as well as the reception, and to maximum visibility of the wedding ceremony for our guests. Krishna requested in the design to integrate close to 40 dimmable hanging light led bulbs to create a warm soft light in the inside of the dome to illuminate us during the ceremony. He then requested that all 8 of the dj's moving heads be focused on the outside of the dome with a contrasting cooler light. In the end Utopian Events delivered a piece that uniquely transformed and transcended our wedding ceremony
 
Food: Blue Taj: I would like to take a moment to thank my parents and Blue Taj's team for their extraordinary work! We had an amazing menu of items for each and every event! Tasting was obviously a blast and helped us narrow down to a few specific dishes! Blue Taj is mostly known for their north indian dishes but with the help of my mother, he was able to work outside of the box and bring out some delicious South Indian dishes as well! They were very easy to work with and our guests were thoroughly impressed! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our wedding vows. Krishna and I were very insistent about having wedding vows in our ceremony as we both primarily grew up here. We figured it would be a great way to personalize our wedding and share our love and promises to not only one another but for everyone else to hear.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Stay in communication with your fiance and your family. Challenges will always arise but it is the challenge that you must overcome. Also, stay patient and delegate as much as possible. You cannot do everything! This is why it is important to let others help you when you feel like the world is spinning too quickly! 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
If you have your wedding in NC, go to Amelie's for your wedding cake! I love how I was able to customize my cake with whatever flavor I wanted per layer, its frosting, and the ganache and fruit in the middle! It was worth every penny! They also helped with breakfast sandwiches for the bridal party!
 
Photo: TNK Photo: Elmer and his team did such a fantastic job! His work was unique and he made sure that we were getting the photos we wanted! We also had the opportunity to build a good relationship with Elmer when he completed our engagement shoot in Jersey City! We felt at ease through the whole process and Elmer knew exactly how to make Krishna smile (with his teeth showing).
 
Video: Sculpting with Time: Krishna worked very closely with Alex and Whitney. They are the most genuine couple to work with. They were efficient and made sure not to miss a single detail! They were always accommodating and receptive to our feedback! The film they delivered was beyond our expectations and truly shows their capabilities not just as wedding cinematographers but artists.
 
Violinist: Edith Yokley: Edith was introduced to us by our DJ. She always brought a lot of style to her work! She was great and created my walk down the aisle memorable!
 
Reception Dance by Priti Udeshi-Gupta: If I tried to choreograph our reception dance, Krishna would have waited till the last minute to learn it. I knew he wanted to learn how to dance, so we found a dance teacher right here in Jersey City! Priti was fantastic! Given her history and what she has accomplished over the years, we knew she would be the right fit for us! Krishna learned quite a few steps that took him out of his comfort zone, and I myself was able to let go of my fears with certain moves. We learned a lot about one another through this process and it helped us understand each other's strengths and weaknesses with time and patience. Overall it was a lot of fun and everyone loved it!
 
DJ and Lighting: DJ BayBFace: Manish and I have known each other for many years- in fact he is family and has always been an older brother to me. He did a great job with helping out on the lighting for our wedding day and also the music (especially for the after party when he played all the old school hip hop songs!)
 
Maharnis, come back tomorrow for more inspiring moments like this!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in Manhattan during my second year of residency and connected instantly. On one of our first dates we hung out for over 14 hours adventuring all throughout the city from museums to restaurants to bars, Jimson tells me he even skipped a wedding he had the next day so we could keep the date going. After our first month of dating, Jimson told me we were going to a gala and handed me “Tickets to Hogwarts - Platform 9 3/4” (he knew I loved Harry Potter). He then brought me to the Whispering Wall in Grand Central Station and asked me to be his girlfriend. I, of course, said yes, and he handed me an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Not only did I get a boyfriend that night, but I got accepted into Hogwarts! That’s when I thought to myself that he could be “the one”.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I went on a vacation with my family to Greece and had invited Jimson to join me. He told me that he was too busy with work and wouldn’t be able to make it to my disappointment. Unbeknownst to me, he secretly flew into Santorini for the last part of our trip for 48 hours and planned a surprise engagement proposal with my siblings. On the day of the proposal, my siblings convinced me that we should do a family photo session. When we arrived, the photographer handed me a secret note with a password that would open a Cryptex (think Da Vinci code). The password to the Cryptex was “Always” – a reference to one of our favorite scenes from Harry Potter and the way he used to sign all of his letters to me. I kept thinking the entire time, “There’s no way he’s here in Santorini, he’s in America!” As soon as I opened the Cryptex, Jimson appeared out of nowhere and surprised me with a Golden Snitch shaped ring box (to complete the Harry Potter theme) and proposed!
 
You can watch our Proposal video here: https://vimeo.com/276956178
Along with a full recap of our proposal story on: https://howtheyasked.com/roshini-and-jimson/
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We had 7 hidden Harry Potter elements throughout the day of the wedding and challenged our guests to find them - it was a fun way to engage with everyone while we were running around during the wedding. They were: my mehndi, our cake topper, a symbol hidden in our wedding program, Jimson’s socks, our wedding planner’s brooch, a Hogwarts acceptance letter from one of our first dates, and the Golden Snitch he proposed with.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment we won’t forget is when we walked onto the reception floor for the first time with our bridal party waiting for us and with our family and friends standing and cheering. You could feel the love and support in the room and it made us realize how blessed we were to have such a great and loving village behind us.
 
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 our bridal party enter as part of a choreographed dance. My sister-in-law Shingari runs a dance studio (instagram: @Shingarirhythm), and was able to coordinate all 20 of our bridal party members into a synchronized Bollywood dance. Everyone was raving about how different and energizing it was to see the bridal party come out to a dance.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start planning as early as you can! My husband is a great planner and so he had pushed us to do a lot of things earlier than needed, but that was a game changer, because it resulted in our wedding week being a lot less stressful thanks to the early planning.
 
Have a wonderful day loves. Thanks for watching!

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!

We hope you have a great day, Maharanis See you tomorrow for more!
