How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
A week after turning 22, I met my husband at a Lower East Side Bar called "The DL" while out with some girlfriends. My friend thought his friend was cute and while we tried to initiate the interaction between our friends, we naturally started talking. I like to believe I started up the conversation with him first ;) What started off as an interaction just to get our friends to meet turned into us becoming fast friends. He was working crazy hours and I was juggling grad school and an internship. We still managed to hang out and spend time together, no matter how busy we were. We had known each other for just about a week - but were still making every effort to see each other. When we were together, it felt natural and like we've known each other for way longer than just a few weeks. I could truly be myself with him, and while he was just a stranger at that time, it felt like he had been a part of my life forever. That's really the moment I knew that this was the guy for me! We were without doubt our own individuals and enjoyed each other for who we were.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Preetam and I love travel, food, wine, and having a good time. About 4 years ago, we visited South Beach for the first time and for years after that, we made an effort to visit once a year. We loved the vibe, food, culture, nightlife, beach, and just the chill and relaxed environment. We have made some incredible memories in Miami and it's always been our favorite city to visit.
 
Our proposal was perfect. On Memorial Day weekend in 2018, we visited South Beach for the long weekend. He proposed to me in South Beach, with just the two of us present! It was perfect and romantic - I always wanted a private proposal with just the two of us and he made that happen in the perfect setting. We immediately called our families first to share the big news (which they weren't surprised about at all!) and then celebrated with some delicious food and wine. We were so excited to finally be engaged and wanted to share the news with everyone but actually decided that we wanted to enjoy this special time for just a few days longer with just the two of us! We knew that the minute we told our friends, this would kickstart wedding talk and we just wanted to bask in the happiness of being engage. So we chose not to share this with any of our friends - it was really hard to keep this a secret from my close girlfriends who totally were expecting a proposal to happen on the trip!
 
The proposal encompassed all of our favorite things in one - Miami, the beach, food, wine, and the most beautiful ring I had ever seen.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew that I always wanted to wear a traditional red lehenga for my traditional Sikh ceremony. I chose to go to India with my parents for my wedding shopping - I wanted to stay true to the Punjabi and Sikh wedding traditions so I was big on getting my wedding dress from Punjab. I'm so thankful for my family in India who took all my dream outfit photos, and sought out designers in Punjabi who could craft my dream wedding outfit for me!
 
As much as I wanted the traditional Punjabi wedding dress for my Sikh ceremony, I wanted my reception look to embody my love for old school Hollywood vibes. I've always loved the modern yet elegant vibes of Berta bridal dresses and visited their Soho boutique to find my dream white dress. I landed on a backless, white dress with intricate lace and sequin details. It was a contrast from my morning look and I loved that!
 
I wanted both of my looks to stay true to my love for the Punjabi heritage and the old school Hollywood vibe. They were contrasting looks and it makes me so happy I was able to make my dream wedding looks come true!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Wedding planning is stressful and time consuming but what made it all worth it was the extra time we got to spend time with each other as a couple. I had dreamed about my wedding day for as long as I can remember and I knew I wanted to be involved in every detail of the planning. But, it was also so great how involved Preetam was and how we really became partners throughout the planning. During vendor calls, I would ask questions while he would write notes. During vendor meetings, we tag teamed and asked questions together. We finalized the menu, decor, party favors, really everything - together. Both of our careers are demanding and often take up our weekdays and sometimes our weekends. Wedding planning allowed us to spend some additional time together and it really helped us to develop an even stronger partnership. We leaned on each other for support during the stressful parts and celebrated with each other as planning decisions were finalized and our wedding date grew near.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the experience!!! Wedding planning is stressful, time consuming and at most times, could feel like a full-time job. But, it is also a really special time in your life. Every girl at some point has dreamt about their wedding day and marrying their soulmate. And the time has finally come for you to see all your dreams come to fruition. Trust your judgment, go with your gut, and enjoy the experience to its fullest. Only YOU know what will make your wedding day special so trust that.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The goal for our wedding was to incorporate all of our favorite things in one and share our love and happiness with our friends and family. Every detail we picked kept this goal in mind.
 
For my mehndi, I knew that I wanted to incorporate the NYC skyline into my design - Monita from Henna for All NY made that happen for me and made all my mehndi dreams come true.
 
For my mehndi/sangeet/jaago, we wanted it to be a big fun Punjabi welcome party and we are so thankful for our families for trusting that and allowing us to make it a carefree and fun summer event.
 
The Swan Club made all my reception dreams come true - it really is hard to find a reception space with a beautiful outdoor area and Swan Club really was that!!! I am SO happy we were able to find Swan Club and have our summer wedding there - the grounds of the space are incredible and it made our wedding reception so special.
 
Anyone who knows me knows I have a huge sweet tooth, and a crazy obsession with cookies. I am so thankful for my favorite cookie bakery in NYC, Chip NYC, for catering my wedding reception and giving my guests the chance to experience my favorite dessert of all time.
 
My makeup and hair artists were just perfect. I had a vision of what I wanted for my different looks but Preeti, Fiza, and Naina really helped me to perfect my wishes and I really trusted them to do what they do best!! They made me feel like a princess and my desire to be a Punjabi bride in the morning and an old Hollywood actress in the evening came to light because of their amazing creativity.

 

More amazing weddings, every day!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in our fourth year of medical school. We were introduced by a mutual friend but my mom actually met him first (she likes to tell people she arranged the marriage haha!)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I had thrown a Halloween party the night before so we woke up on Saturday morning feeling a little ...rough. At the time we were doing long distance, so sid has planned to take me out to dinner and go somewhere else prior (this might sound suspicious but I didn’t suspect a thing because he loves to be mysterious so this wasn’t new!). It was cold and rainy so I put on a big sweater and boots. Sid is NOT the type to care about my outfit so maybe I should have been suspicious at this point because he told me that I should wear heels...but again I was not even thinking about it. I put on some heels and his surprise destination turned out to be the Adler planetarium! I was very confused because he wanted to walk to the edge of the lake ...in the cold...and rain. We stood at the edge of the lake and he kept telling me to just take in the surroundings and relax - never been my forte so of course, I started asking when we could escape the cold and go inside. Next thing I know he’s down on one knee asking me to marry him! I was so shocked I just remember saying “OMGOMGOMG”. He had the perfect speech planned and had a photographer capture all the candid moments. It was perfect.
 
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.
Sid and I were both physician residents at the time- I’m anesthesia and he was surgery so we did not have a lot of free time. Add to that the fact that he lived in NJ and I’m in Chicago and wedding planning seemed insurmountable in the beginning. I’m definitely a planner and took to Instagram to start saving venues, bridal looks, and everything wedding related to a personal saved Instagram wedding collection. I have planned large events in college so I sort of had an understanding of how to go about contacting vendors and venues but the wedding arena is unlike any other type of event so I did a lot of learning as I went. I found my hair and makeup artist, Makeup by Mansi, very early on and even before the makeup trial I knew I was going to go with her. Besides the fact that her Instagram portfolio was exactly what I was looking for, she was also so sweet and professional. After doing the bridal trial I was obviously sold and even had her do my mom's hair and makeup. Mansi really made us feel like we had known her forever and we still keep in touch! I actually was not physically in NJ so my parents and Sid did most of the leg work when looking for venues. We knew we wanted to have the wedding in NJ because it would be easiest for both of our families to attend. They saw a lot of places and ultimately stumbled upon the Mansion At Natirar in Peapack. Sid and I both loved the modern feel to this old mansion with so much history. When I visited the venue I was blown away by the view and knew we had to get married there. The food is all grown on-site and our taste test was such a fun experience! We wanted a mix of American and Indian cuisine so we went with Indian catering from Khyber Grill and American catering from our venue, Natirar. Because I wasn’t able to fly to NJ very frequently, I did not get the chance to taste any of the Indian food so I was completely blown away by it at the wedding! The mix of American and Indian food turned out perfectly and all our guests loved it as well. Most importantly, I have a severe nut and lentil allergy and both caterers made sure that none of the food had ingredients I could not eat. In terms of decor, I am more of a minimalist and it was challenging for me to find inspiration online because Indian weddings are typically very ornate! I took a chance and found a beautiful flower vendor on Instagram called Seablossoms Bridal. They had never done an Indian wedding before but that was ok with me because I had never been to an Indian wedding either! They did an incredible job blending Indian decor with my more modern minimalist western taste. They decorated our mandap as well and it was so beautiful people took parts of it home with them!
Finally, we had Arun Bhambri from the detailed affairs team handle our day-of wedding coordination. He was so organized and definitely made sure we stayed on track with timing. He met with us over the phone multiple times leading up to the event and he answered all our texts and emails right away!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Prior to trying on wedding lehengas, I had never worn a lehenga or sari. This probably sounds insane to most people reading this but I was so nervous at what I would look like and how I should wear it. We flew to Bombay to shop and my cousin helped me a lot by finding stores to go to and encouraging me to try different styles and colors. I thought I would end up in a baby pink/pastel color. However, we finally ended up at Anita Dongre and I knew I had found the lehenga when my mom started crying the second she saw me in it. The best part was, Anita Dongre is her favorite designer! The lehenga was a bright red with gold and blue embroidery of elephants, birds, and deer. It was so beautiful! The Anita Dongre store itself was gorgeous and the people working there were very accommodating and friendly!
I also wanted to wear a white dress for my reception and I found it at Bijou Bridal in Paramus. I am a very decisive person so I honestly had not tried on too many dresses prior to finding the one. The saleswomen were so helpful and made sure I stayed within my budget!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I truly loved it all! People find this very weird and of course, I became stressed as the date got closer. As I said before, I am definitely a planner so I was on top of everything when it came to sending out save the dates and invites, picking vendors etc. I loved finding all these different vendors that would come together to make our day so special!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests LOVED the baraat! Many of my friends had never seen one before so this was a really special experience. My bridesmaids joined in on the fun as well! Sid has a great time with the horse and there are such fun videos and photos of our families enjoying themselves. I had so much FOMO that I had my wedding coordinator FaceTime me from the baraat!!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There was a point at the wedding when Sid and I were on the mandap during the ceremony and our pundit told us all to look to the sky at Ganesh. Prior to this, the clouds had been out but the second he said those words we all looked up and the clouds parted and the sun came out! It still gives me chills, and so many people were excited about it afterward.
 
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.
The sangeet was a total surprise for me! I did not even know what I was wearing!! My mother in law had my outfit custom made and got the jewelry to go with it! It somehow all fit perfectly and I loved it I felt like princess jasmine (if she wore pink!). The decor was all hues of pink. My mother in law is Kashmiri and the Kashmiri family had a folk song and dance, which was so unique and fun! Finally, all 12 of my bridesmaids surprised me with a sangeet dance- the biggest surprise was when my mom joined in!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t let anyone tell you what to do/not to do for your wedding!! Each wedding is a unique representation of the bride and groom and your guests will love everything you choose because they love you!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Jewelry- The rose gold and diamond earrings I wore with my white dress were custom made and gifted to me by my parents. They are so beautiful and shiny!!
- Most of the jewelry worn for the ceremony was from Reemat designs- she is so easy to work with and such a wonderful person!
- The gold bangles were borrowed from my mom :)
 

More coming up, don't go anywhere!
