How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Sukrit and I were introduced to each other through family. After chatting on the phone and FaceTiming for a month, we decided to meet in person and hit it off right away! Sukrit has an incredible sense of humour, which immediately drew me in. I knew that whatever ups and downs we would go through in life, if I had him by my side I would never stop smiling!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Sukrit planned a trip to Turks and Caicos, a destination that I had been dreaming of travelling to for many years. During our trip we had so many adventures, including paddle boarding, parasailing, ATVing, and Island hopping! For the proposal, he arranged a beautiful private dinner for us on the beach. He got down on one knee, and I of course said yes!
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 am very grateful to my mom for putting together the wedding of my dreams. Since I'm in residency, and Sukrit was working full-time, we had to put full faith in our parents to plan the perfect wedding. I am from BC so it was important for me to have my wedding in Vancouver. We also wanted to highlight BC's natural beauty, so we kept our mendhi and Mayan functions outdoors. I've always loved fairytales since I was a little girl, so for the Reception I knew I wanted the decor to represent old-world romance, with lots of rich hues, such as Red. Our house decor also drew on romantic themes, with lots of florals and pastels. We built a clear dance floor on top of our swimming pool with LED lights which looked incredible!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my wedding, I knew I wanted to wear Red and be more of a traditional bride. I visited the Rimple and Harpreet Naurla boutique in Delhi and they were able to design a lengha that matched my vision. I kept my hair and makeup simple and elegant so that my outfit could stand out. For the reception I decided to go with a gold Sabyasachi lengha that was more contemporary. Since I was more formal for my wedding day, I wanted to wear my hair down for the reception so that I could dance and have fun!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was dance practices for the Sangeet. Anisha (@twirling_moments) was able to create truly spectacular performances, and it was so fun to be able to dance with my family and friends!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think our guests really enjoyed our Sangeet. We had many performances by family that were very entertaining, and we were lucky to have Malkit Singh perform live at the Sangeet.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Probably dancing on stage with Malkit Singh at the Sangeet. We grew up listening to his music and to have him there performing was very surreal. He put on an amazing show and we danced the night 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.
House decor: enchanted forest, very girly, lots of lilacs/purples and very romantic.
Aquarius Art was able to create really different looks for each event. My favourite look would have to be for my Mayan. We kept the makeup and hair really simple, and I wore a flower crown in my hair to complement the florals in my Ritu Kumar outfit.
That is all for today, darlings. See you tomorrow for more!
