Loves, let's watch the charming wedding of Anisha & Meghan. The incredible team at Tum Hi Ho Events carefully curated and meticulously planned every detail. The ballroom at the Sheraton Parsippany transformed into a dreamscape of romance and elegance thanks to the creative prowess of Florista Decor. The melodic beats of the Dhol Drummer, Neil Desai, and the haunting tunes of the Bagpiper, Michael Hannigan, blended harmoniously, symbolizing the beautiful union of two cultures. The couple's natural beauty was enhanced by the skillful hands of the talented artists from Cinderella Bridez. Palermo Bakery and Beignets crafted a decadent wedding cake that stood as a symbol of sweetness and togetherness. Moghul Caterers delighted the guests with exquisite culinary delights, tantalizing their taste buds and satisfying their souls. The dance floor was alive with energy, thanks to the vibrant beats of DJ Sunny Entertainment. The sweet couple expressed gratitude by donating to the LGBTQ charity Family Equality as their wedding favors. It was a beautiful gesture that encapsulated their desire to spread love and acceptance in a world that sometimes needs a gentle reminder. House of Talent Studio, the master storytellers behind the lens. They created a visual symphony through their lens that encapsulated raw emotions, stolen glances, and heartfelt laughter. Let their love story ignite a flame of courage and acceptance in your hearts, and may it serve as a reminder that love knows no limits and dreams do come true! Enjoy this inspirational wedding.
How did you meet your Bride, and when did you know she was "the one"?
It was a chilly Sunday morning in November of 2020. The height of the COVID pandemic was slowly beginning to dwindle down when Anisha and Meghan matched on a dating app called Bumble. As a funeral director and a nurse, they quickly bonded over their shared traumatic work experiences that had transpired over the prior 8 months. This bond led to more conversations and discovering more things that they had in common: their difficult journeys leading up to coming out and their desire to be truly happy. Despite their differences (their races, where they grew up, their cultural upbringings) and Anisha almost infecting Meghan with COVID after their first date, they both knew they had found something special in the other. After Anisha’s 14-day quarantine period was over, the couple eagerly met up again, and the rest is history! Meghan and Anisha hope to grow their family in the future and pave the way for other interracial, same-sex couples.
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.
Our overall experience with all of our vendors was impeccable. They all truly brought our vision to life and never once made us feel “less than” for being a same-sex couple.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Almost all of our guests said as soon as they entered the ballroom, they felt good vibrations and positive energy, and that is honestly all that we could have hoped for. We had all the right people there with us, supporting us along the way.
One moment that the guests said that they enjoyed the most was when the dhol drummer and bagpiper performed a duet before the dance floor opened. We thought it would be a nice way to symbolize two cultures coming together.
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My parents, Sankar and Sabita Mukherjee made a generous donation to the LGBTQ+ organization Family Equality as one of the wedding favors.
