How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Harsh and I met at Quinnipiac University during a South Asian Society meeting. My favorite part of how we met is that we really just started as friends, he was my best friend for while before we recognized how we felt about each other. To date, he is the one person I can always count on and knows exactly how to talk me through any situation (even when I was freaking out about wedding planning). I suppose I knew he was the one when I felt comfortable being my weirdo self around him. That comfort level is everything.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Harsh and I had done long distance for a few years so we always met at the same spot in Hoboken every Friday after work. Those were the best Fridays, we'd grab food, get some dessert, and then just sit by the water and watch the beautiful city skyline. So, when Harsh proposed, we were watching the same city skyline right before grabbing a bite to eat. Unfortunately, it was December and negative eleven degrees. But, fortunately, there wasn't a single person in sight and we had that perfect little moment all to ourselves. Afterwards, we grabbed a bite to eat at our favorite pizza place in Hoboken, Grimaldi's, and then went to my house where our whole family was waiting to celebrate with 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 started with the big things like venues, catering, photography/videography, and decor first. Then moved into DJ, hair/makeup, mehndi, and outfits. I did a ton of research, followed a lot of different vendors on Instagram to get a feel of their work, and really made sure I knew the market/pricing. I had schedules for each day, informed my vendors and family of those schedules, and had every detail planned out of the events. Honestly, it was all so so worth it. I was shocked we stayed on schedule and that we were even able to enjoy the food at our own wedding! I really trusted the vendors we chose, they produced great quality work and were very efficient so my overall experience was really great. Everyone was so great about timing and about doing everything they could to make our wedding as special as possible. Would highly recommend all of the vendors we selected.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Our wedding was in the Fall so I really wanted to embrace some Fall colors. So, I chose maroon and blush pink for the wedding outfit, mustard yellow for the Sangeet, and mauve for the reception. I LOVED all of my outfits. I had zero time to go to India for them so I followed a lot of different vendors on Instagram and that's where I found Walia Jones. They made it SO easy for me and my outfits were custom made so beautifully thanks to them. I had a vision and they helped bring it to life. They completed the outfits and shipped everything very quickly so I definitely appreciated that. In general, I knew what I wanted, the style, the colors, and looked through a ton of pictures to customize the outfits how I wanted them. Loved my experience with Walia Jones and would highly recommend!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
To be truthful, I didn't enjoy the planning. It was stressful, tedious, and took up every weekend until the day of the wedding. However, the actual wedding weekend, I was the most relaxed I had been in months because all that planning and stress was finally paying off. My favorite part was starting the events and watching everyone enjoy something I knew I put a lot of work into. Other than that, the food tasting hands down was my other favorite part lol, Chand Palace did an excellent job with the taste and presentation. Very easy to work with them and they make some quality food.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The outdoor scenery at Brooklake Country Club. I think our guests took as many pictures outside in front of the golf course as we did. That view is so breathtaking and the day of the wedding was cloudy but the temperature was perfect. Since it was cloudy, our pictures came out perfect. Other than that, I think they enjoyed the food and DJ a lot.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
One thing I really wanted to make sure was special and done well was my mehndi. I wanted a certain symbol incorporated in it because it's something that means a lot to both me and Harsh. When Harsh and I first started dating, he gave me a necklace with a dopamine molecule and it was my favorite gift from him because I felt that he truly understood how much I love nerdy things like that. I love that I was able to incorporate the dopamine molecule into my mehndi. It was something we shared years ago and Mehndikalogie was able to make it part of my wedding day - it meant a lot!

Scottsdale, AZ Indian Fusion Wedding by D.P. Weddings

TGIF Beautiful ladies! The end of this phenomenal week is here, and we don't want to conclude it without giving you the filmy time of the day! That's right. Today we have a fantastic visual masterpiece prepared just for you, thanks to the talented team from D.P. Weddings. They made sure to capture every single moment from Supriya & Steven's wedding ceremony for our enjoyment! And if this is not enough, you can relive this celebration by visiting this jaw-dropping gallery by Rachel Solomon Photography. Our lovely duo chose the McCormick Ranch Golf Club for all the pre-wedding events and the Royal Palms Resort and Spa for the fusion wedding ceremony and reception. Supriya, our beautiful Maharani, stole everyone's attention with her innate beauty and showcasing a fantastic Mehndi art designed by Henna by Purvi. The wedding ceremony was so lovely, and the wedding reception seemed like taken out of a fairy tale. Mainly because of the live music played by Lucky Devils Band, who turned this gala into an epic party. Today, you are one click away from all the amazingness that surrounded this wedding celebration! So don't think twice and click play below!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Stevie on January 4th, 2018, following an introduction on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. Our first date was on the day that the Bomb Cyclone blanketed New York City in snow. We met for drinks at Bobby Van's near Grand Central Station, because it was one of the few places that remained open. Time seemed to pause, along with the outside world, as we chatted for hours!
 
I was struck by Stevie’s quiet confidence, wit, and uncanny familiarity. I felt as though I already knew him -- on our first date alone, there was an easy and natural balance between us. To my friends, I referred to him as “Steady Stevie," and that last part has stuck. Within just a few weeks of dating, I told my mom (much to her alarm) that I knew I was going to marry him. We ultimately chose January 4th as our wedding day, as it is also the date we met!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
A year after we met, Stevie fittingly chose to propose in Grand Central Station on a beautiful evening in January! I met up with him at Grand Central Oyster Bar. We checked our coats and grabbed a glass of wine at the bar. Curiously, the Maître D' (who was in on it) said there would be a long wait even though the place was empty. So to kill time, we drifted over to the Whispering Gallery and eventually the Main Concourse. There, Stevie told me we were going on a journey; which train did I think we were taking? Perplexed, my concern was that we had left our coats (and wine!) at the restaurant. He said not to worry, and gestured at the balcony overlooking the concourse, where I suddenly saw my parents waving. When I turned back around, Stevie was on one knee, with heartfelt words and a big smile on his face.
 
The rest of the night is a blur of glee -- champagne and hors d'oeuvres with my family at Bobby Vans (where we had our first date), a casual pit stop to see Hamilton on Broadway, and a surprise afterparty at my favorite bar, Ted's, where my brother had gathered a group of our closest friends! The night ended at 4 am, with Dollar Pizza on 3rd Avenue. We will forever thank New York City for bringing us together, a boy from Arizona and a girl from India.
 
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 a destination wedding in my groom's hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. Since we live in New York, we found ourselves in the capable hands of my Arizona wedding planner, Laurie Stricklin! I had weekly calls with Laurie, who would find vendors to match my ideas. We also had 3-weekend trips to  finalize decisions in person.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a vision for my white wedding dress being ultra-feminine with lots of lace detail. I went shopping with my mom at Kleinfeld Bridal and immediately fell in love with a gorgeous Pnina Tornai off-shoulder neckline and sheer lace bodice. The designer herself, Pnina, was there in person and helped me customize the rest of the dress: a soft A-line silhouette with a modest train. I have a video with her, as I said Yes to the Dress!
 
For my Sangeet lengha, I found myself drawn to modern Indian design, as opposed to the more traditional heavily-beaded florals. I've always loved vibrant colors and patterns, and so I chose a bright turquoise + pink lengha with gold accents! With my groom in gold, and our wedding party in teal and pink, we felt it all came together really well.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
We know we come from very different backgrounds, cultures, and religious traditions. So throughout the planning process, our North Star was the idea of "One True Fusion Ceremony," which was a lot of fun to brainstorm!
 
We wanted the important elements of each of us represented. I wore a white dress as a nod to Stevie’s culture, and he wore an Indian suit for me. My bridesmaids represented my tradition in red lenghas, and the groomsmen represented his culture, in black tuxedos. Our ceremony featured both a western Officiant and a Hindu Pandit. We had Bible Readings and Hindu Mantras, recited our own Vows and even Broke the Glass. Our wedding had everything from the Henna to the Horah! Even our hashtag (#OneLesserMenon) combined both our last names and embraced the spirit of unity.
 
Before the wedding day we had a Mehendi, Rehearsal Dinner, and Sangeet -- this rounded out all the traditions of our families. It was a wonderful, colorful, and authentic wedding for the two of us.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think the thing that the guests appreciated the most was embracing a cultural element that they weren't accustomed to! Many of my Indian family members had never experienced toasts at a Rehearsal dinner, never seen a bride in a white dress, and never danced to a Horah! Stevie's side of the family loved picking out Indian outfits for the Sangeet, getting Henna done on their hands, and watching our "mystical" Hindu ceremony. Many of our friends loved practicing together for Sangeet performances, and donning bright kurtas, saris, and ornate jewelry. We hope every guest got to experience something unique, and authentic to our fusion wedding.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I absolutely LOVED watching my "gora" groom perform bhangra at our Sangeet, alongside two seasoned Indian friends! He has always been a great dancer, but it was absolutely incredible -- the whole crowd was cheering and I think his side of the family was stunned! It really warmed my heart that he wanted to embrace the Indian culture and do something that required stepping completely outside of his comfort zone.
 
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 tried to weave in authentic, important pieces of our story throughout the wedding. For our first dance we chose the song "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, because this was actually the first song we danced to, a few weeks into dating! Signature drinks at our reception were based on our favorite cocktails. At the afterparty in our hotel suite, we had my groom's favorite: In-N-Out burgers, fries, and shakes. Too many details to recount here!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Being a very planning-oriented person, I made a conscious decision to just let go and be present the week of the wedding. You've done all the hard work, now soak up every moment, and ENJOY!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Our wedding gifts to each other were so special! We wanted to gift each other things that would become our family's heirlooms -- our story forever passed down along with them. Stevie is a big watch-enthusiast, so I surprised him with a classic and timeless Patek Philippe dress watch. I had the back of the case engraved with the words, "January 4, 2020. Until the end of time." He got me a stunning 3.5-carat Infinity ring, with 20 oval diamonds to represent the year we got married.
 
If you loved this love story, wait to see what we have prepared for you on Monday. So visit us back!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my groom in college, and it was not love at first sight! We became really good friends and before we knew it, we had both fallen for each other. There wasn't one defining moment where I knew that he was the one. It was a culmination of events, the little things, that added up.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had a trip planned to Italy and France. I am the kind of person who has a very detailed itinerary when I go on vacation so he had to tell me that he had a photoshoot planned for us when we were in Paris because I had kept telling him how it's so cute that couples do photoshoots in these nice places. To avoid any chances of me finding the ring, he had his brother fly into Paris with the ring the day before! We did our photoshoot, and at the end, he got down on one knee outside of the Eiffel Tower.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I knew from the beginning that I wanted a traditional red lehenga for my wedding day. I am also a very indecisive person and can never pick anything on my own because I am never sure of whether it looks good. I was trying on different lehengas and my daddy said "This is the one" when I tried one on. That is the one I ended up buying!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The entire process was very enjoyable (and stressful), but our favorite part about the wedding-planning process was how much we learned about each other throughout the process and how much we learned about ourselves as well... our likes, dislikes, what we agree on, what we disagree on, and how to meet in the middle.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved our DJ/MC and our decorations!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment when I entered for my wedding was the most amazing feeling. I wanted time to freeze and to be able to capture the reactions of all of our friends and family. Also, our first look! My fiancé had not seen my outfit or any of my accessories prior to the first look so it was a complete surprise for him which made it all the more special.

If we inspire you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you on Monday. So stay tuned!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met him about 5 years ago when I was in my second year of optometry school with no time to date. He was working just around the corner, but since I never checked my dating apps, he decided to connect with me on Facebook instead and requested me on a whim. After playing it safe and telling me he added me by "accident", we started messaging for hours and instantly clicked. Our first date was actually very random, but almost destined in a way. Bhavik was getting a falafel at his favorite cart in all of New York, which just happened to be up the block from where I lived at the time and he decided to FaceTime me as he was waiting in line. When I realized he was in my neighborhood, I excitedly blurted out that I was craving some falafel too and Bhavik instantly changed his order to two. We finally met and had a nice unexpected first date. We were talking for about a month when he surprised me with Broadway tickets to Aladdin. While watching the show, I just knew he was the one. :)

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was my day off from residency and I had plans to meet my friend who was visiting me from California. It was actually one of the coldest days of December 2017 and I didn't plan to dress up at all, but my friend said to straighten my hair so we can "take selfies on the rooftop". I was really confused why we would be on a rooftop in the middle of winter, but I just went with it. Before I left, I saw an email from my doorman that a package was picked up by Bhavik this morning. He actually picked up proposal props from my roommates and they were all extremely nervous the surprise was ruined. Luckily, I was so convinced he was in NJ that I completely dismissed it. I went to the rooftop and kept looking around for my friend, until I turned the corner, and saw Bhavik standing in a suit with the most beautiful set up behind him along with NYC's skyline at sunset. Then as I walked towards him, my favorite country song started to play. It turns out my friend was never in town and I was completely surprised.

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 planned our wedding throughout a year slowly booking one vendor at a time. We saw about 12 venues over a weekend and instantly loved Hyatt Regency Princeton for it's open lobby & cocktail area. It fits over 400+ guests and has excellent service. Shoutout to Kristy! As for DJ/MC, we were looking for a specific musical ambiance for our ceremony and knowing DNS Event Solutions' team personally, we completely trusted them to carry it out as we dreamt. We spoke regularly all year to create our vision and later added lighting effects, a Video Wall, and a Floor wrap with their help. I went to India for outfit shopping (Bombay, Ahmedabad, and Baroda) and got my wedding and reception outfits in Bombay. As for Hair and Makeup, I went through about 20 vendors and was looking for the perfect fit. I knew I wanted to connect personally since I would be spending most of my day with this person and wanted my look to be true to me. I also wanted to find someone who could help with all my bridesmaids and mom's needs and came across Arfana Jasar, who was more than perfect. As for my Mehndi artist, I used Anuja for my engagement and booked her instantly for my wedding. She is amazing and her work is perfection. I wanted Aladdin themed henna because it told a part of our story and she was able to draw Aladdin and Jasmine on one arm and Agrabah on my other. For decor, we loved Nirali Decors for being extremely flexible with us through the process. I knew as I got my outfits and as our day got closer, I would want to change things.She made a dream come true with it that day. Photo/Video were extremely important to us. We went with separate vendors who specialized in each. Our photographer, Abhi, gave us extremely practical and genuine advice. We initially wanted to do our photoshoot in a random pretty location, but he recommended to pick a place that meant a lot to us. For him, photos tell a story, and he wanted us to look back at our engagement shoot, and be able to share and remember a story with each picture and looking back at them now, we couldn't be more grateful for the memories that came to life. Our videographer, was Rare Air Films, and this was our wedding gift to ourselves. We had the best time making an entrance video which told the story of how we met, and working with TJ and his team was absolutely amazing. The actual filming of it was an experience related to wedding planning we will never forget. Lastly, our event coordinator was Events by Ridhi P. Ridhi was amazing to work with and helped us with anything and everything all year to make sure we felt comfortable and stress-free. Her team did an excellent job!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted traditional red and white, but mostly a white skirt. I went to a couple of stores in Bombay and was luckily able to custom design several parts of my outfit. I designed the blouse and duppata over my head. I had them change my skirt to Ivory, which was initially all red. I actually didn't get to see it for months until it was shipped here, but it was perfect.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was being able to be creative together and adding all of our personal touches. We tried to add unique things for our quests to enjoy such as fresh coconuts, a sugar-cane juice stand at garba, and a video wall during our reception as well as a bunch of meaningful aspects for us such as our entrance video that told our story, cookie shooter shots, mother/son and father/daughter slideshows to play during the dances, and the floor wrap. The Floor Wrap was my favorite part, it was made by Rob at GoToShout, and I used the monogram from my Kankotri and custom-designed the floral wrap to match the whole theme. They also made our seating charts for us! Making it completely geared to our personalities and story made it a process we will always remember.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved the coconuts, that's for sure. Also, our entrance video was a hit! Link: https://vimeo.com/360920650

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly, the ceremony itself was so special to us. Sitting at the mandap felt so serene and peaceful. We had worked a lot with our DJ/MC and priest to make it more meaningful to us. Our DJ, Smith, went above and beyond to make the ceremony atmosphere very zen-like with special lighting effects and tranquil music. Our MC, Vig, coordinated with our priest and translated the Sanskrit versus and meaning of each step of the wedding along with appropriate throwback songs that we loved! It really was SO fun.

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 used Rohit Gijare Choreography for our garba dance, first dance, and entrance dance.He was excellent, taught us so well and so quick toot! My husband had no idea how to dance, and now dancing is his favorite hobby. Also, I used ABPD Photography for my pre-wedding events. Anand was amazing to work with!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Yes, enjoy planning together and make the wedding day your own as much as you can. People say wedding planning can be boring or stressful, but there's so many ways to add a personal and creative touch to the day that will keep fueling your excitement. Bhavik loves cookies and milk, so we had the bakery make us custom cookie shooters with milk in them & the excitement of sharing this as well as other little touches with our guests added to the overall experience of planning. Also, my advice is not to stress or worry if a vendor is taken. There are so many others and it happens for the best!For more awe-inspiring films, visit us tomorrow.

I bet you will love what we have for you!
