Vancouver, BC Sikh Wedding by VanWeddings Inc.

Good morning, beauty queens! How is your week going so far? I bet it is going great! And it is going to get even better after you take a peek at today's featured wedding because it is one for the books. Natasha & Sukrit's wedding festivities overflowed with so much beauty and traditional flair that it is inevitable to get tons of inspiring ideas while looking at it. So let's wait no more and get ready to enjoy today's feature! If the name of this lovely couple sounds familiar, it is because we already showcased their wedding in this jaw-dropping gallery by VanWeddings Inc. Still, there was so much more to admire that we are re-visiting it via this mesmerizing film also captured by VanWeddings Inc. Planned and designed by Sandy Pandher Special Events, this entire celebration was an ode to beauty and perfection. From the enchanting decor by Koncept Event Design to our gorgeous Maharani's glamorous looks through the different ceremonies, today's film packs every exquisite detail of this wedding bash. For the Sikh ceremony held at the Gurdwara Nanak Niwas, our gorgeous Maharani looked like a goddess thanks to the fabulous makeup and hairstyle by Denise Dinh and the fashionable outfit by Rimple & Harpreet Narula. And we cannot forget about the lovely Mehndi design by Sonika's Henna Art. After the ceremony, all guests celebrated along with the newlyweds in a luxurious reception party hosted at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. For this closing gala, Natasha wore an exquisite outfit designed by Sabyasachi and danced the night away to the beats of Decibel Entertainment. Hands down, the best way to bring the wedding festivities to an end. Ladies, get ready to dive into this real-life fairytale by clicking play below. Today's film is one you don't want to miss!

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!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Very early in our relationship he would always say "I'm going to marry you". When he told me his parents are going to come over for my hand I laughed because I loved his persistent pursuit of me despite me playing hard to get (even though I was head over heels myself). It is so nice to be with someone who knows exactly what he wants from day one and is not afraid of the next step. So after him and his parents asked for my hand things moved quickly and we started ring shopping. Let me tell you! My husband is the most trendy fashion forward man I know! He learned everything there is to know about diamonds and had such a strong opinion on the design. He wanted a solitaire and I was all about the details like a halo. We came up with a ring design we both loved and met in the middle with a solitaire look with a micropavé band. He was so involved in the process and cared so much about the design it was so sweet. I knew he had the ring but I wasn’t sure of when he would do it. I have always been the type of girl to want an intimate proposal with no one but my significant other. When COVID hit I expected there to be no detailed proposal. Little did I know that when he spontaneously visited me for my birthday weekend he would do it then! Since options were limited due to lockdown he decided to do it at home and make it super sentimental. The proposal made me cry because it was so well thought out and detailed! He set up a HUGE rose petal heart in my basement with a rose petal/candle walkway leading up to it. He bought a helium tank and filled heart balloons to line up the walkway. By the floral heart there was a board that said "Will you marry me?" with a book titled "Dream Come True" in which he laminated/pasted little details he saved from our relationship over time. I could not believe this guy saved some of the things that he did! He had his first boarding pass from his first visit to me, my first boarding pass to visit him, a rose petal from the first flowers he gave me, a piece of the gift bag from our first valentines day, first theme park entrance tickets, etc. He had worked on this book for 5 months before proposing to me with it. I could not stop myself from tears! He always jokes that I didn't even care about the ring, I was all over the book. I am so happy I get to hold onto that book and cherish it forever.

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.
Truth be told I grew up in the DMV area and have known where I would have my wedding and who I would use as my vendors for a long time! Due to COVID we ended up doing a mayoun hosted by my uncle/aunt at their house and a nikkah at my house for now. Stay tuned for the Mehndi and Reception details in Virginia and San Francisco next year (iA, God willing)!

So for now, venue for the Nikkah was my house which ended up being the best thing ever! There is something about leaving from your house as a bride with your husband that is so so soooo special, which I may have missed out on if it had not been for COVID (silver lining of the pandemic).

Photography/Videography: None other than Maria Fasih. This decision was one I didn't even have to think about. I met Maria at my best friend's wedding. As the maid of honor at her wedding I worked closely with her vendors including Maria. In just one night we got so close! I told her right then and there that she would cover my wedding and she has accommodated me no matter how many times I had changed the dates. She has become a lifelong friend who is super talented and will drop everything for her clients. I cannot wait for future shoots with her. Her work speaks for itself but when you meet her, you will understand that her work ethic and personality is unmatched.

Hair & Makeup: Mahwish Ali Beauty. There are so many talented hair and makeup artists that I have tried in the area that I love for their own unique styles. However, when it came down to my mayoun and nikkah I knew Mahwish was the one who could give me my "ideal" looks for both events. She is so talented and super sweet! Loved everything about my mayoun and nikkah look! The amount of detail and effort she puts into her work really shows! I fell in love with my looks as soon as I saw myself in the mirror but when my husband was obsessed with both my looks I knew Mahwish hit the nail on the head.

Outfits: Embellished By Sadaf Amir. Not only is she basically family she is a GREAT designer. I have known her for years and her work is nothing short of perfect. I basically told her my vision for my mayoun and nikkah outfits and with her own expertise she elevated those outfits to the next level. She always does an amazing job with all my clothes so I knew she had to be a part of my wedding looks. She is not just a designer who will talk business with you, she will go the extra mile to keep you happy. She dealt with all my tantrums and I will forever be grateful for her.

Decor: Sarah Khan Event Styling. Where do I start with them? There aren't enough nice words I can say about Sarah Khan and her team. From even before the pandemic when we were planning my events they had been sorting through ideas and working so hard for my dream wedding. When the pandemic hit they were honestly not just decorators but also a listening ear. I will never forget all the venting sessions I had with them and how cooperative they were with all my changing plans. They gave me a more ideal wedding than I could have had in a huge venue. I mean how did they turn my house into something out of a fairytale?! Until this day the decor is being talked about and people keep asking me who did it! Ahhh, I still look back at the pictures and obsess over the details!

Mehndi/Henna: Naseem for my BEAUTIFUL mehndi. She spent hours on my hands and feet with impeccable detail and the stain was beyond beautiful. She is so talented and super sweet. I will never get my mehndi done by anyone else! LOVE her work!

Desserts: Fatima for the AMAZING cake, macarons, cake pops, and cookies. Not only were they soooo pretty they tasted so good too! Super talented and fun to work with. I have gotten desserts from her in the past too and each time she exceeds my expectations!

Extra Details: Saher for the super cute "Qubool Hai" sign and chocolate bar favors. The amount of detail and talent in her work really shows and she is so down to earth and sweet on top of that! I have ordered her favors and art work many times and will continue to do so!

Thank you to ALL our vendors for making our events even better than what they would have been pre-pandemic. Their loyalty to their clients really showed during such an uncertain time. So thankful for the life long friendships we made along the way. We could not have asked for a better team!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of planning for our wedding was the time we spent together. For most couples wedding planning leads to stress and added tension but for us it was a little different. Sure, there were days where I was being a complete bridezilla but I cannot say enough good things about my husband. He was a true gem throughout it all. He lightened up every situation and made me laugh. I think if the groom is just as involved in the planning as the bride then the memories you make are unforgettable. If you truly love each other, wedding planning should bring you closer together.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly I try to remember how I felt in each moment to relive that day in my head. However, there are TWO very important moments that I will NEVER forget. One is when we were doing our photoshoot on the HOTTEST day of the summer my husband was blowing air on me, fixing my outfit, fixing my hair, and constantly making sure I am hydrated. In those moments he didn't care that he was also burning hot, he was just worried about me. Reminded me of why I fell in love with him. Two is during/after the Rukhsati (send off) he held my hand and told me "I know how much you mean to your whole family and I can't even imagine one day giving our daughter to someone else to take away to the other side of the country...but I promise to always try to fill your dad's shoes by loving and cherishing you" That moment made me more emotional than the actual Rukhsati because here I was worried about having my dream wedding when in reality none of that matters when you have the dream partner, the #DreamBaig if you will haha!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy every moment because it flies by so quickly! I was the type of bride to worry about each and every detail but luckily my husband is very good at making me want to live in the moment. He joked around and made me laugh all night. Looking back at pictures/videos all I can see is a happy couple and that is exactly how you want to remember your big day. At the end of the day you won't remember or care about any detail, all you will remember is how happy you were in the moment. Take it from a major bridezilla!

That is all for today, darlings. Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Two years ago we were introduced by a common friend at some social gathering but i didn’t remember that introduction at all. So the next time my husband saw me was at a party.. he walked right up to me on the dance floor and acted like he was my best friend. I was like - who is this guy again? And then thought to myself "What the hell..  he’s cute, let’s explore! ” We got along like a house on fire and that very same night we spoke for three hours. After that we went on several creative creative dates and before we knew it we were officially dating. They're absolutely correct when they say " the right person will walk into your life & you'll have no idea from where he’ll come from" - mine literally walked up to me!
My experience was truly mystic and magical. Marriages really are made in heaven.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was straight out of a movie! We had gone to Bangkok for the weekend, to celebrate the sale lf his company in India. We extended the trip 3 times and stayed 14 days, because we just couldn't get enough of partying and spending time together. On the second last day he tells me that he's booked us for dinner at a really nice restaurant. Unsuspectingly I went along, it was on a boat and beautifully done up. The boat docked in front of a Buddhist temple and he asked me to come uo to take a look. Then and tehre he went down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I was in tears, while everyone else on the boat was cheering. It was even more meaningful because I practice Budhism and he decided to do it in front of a Budhist temple which was lit up fully at night. The view and the proposal left me speechless.
 
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.
So blessed to have had the most surreal, intimate and beautiful wedding on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.
 
Exchanging vows on the ocean front along with a picture perfect view of the sunset, amongst the few people who love you the most - this truly was a fairy tale wedding.
 
As a true Delhi girl I always expected a big fat Indian wedding, but I knew that these challenging circumstances wouldn't allow that for a long time to come. Sometime in the 2nd week of June our parents decided to not wait indefinitely and go ahead with a traditional Hindu ceremony here in Hawaii- where all of us have been spending our lockdown. With just 2 weeks in hand we managed to organize both our outfits from New Delhi - fortunately I had brand new one which I'd bought earlier for my sisters wedding & for Rohan we actually did a video call with the designer and I took the measurements. The forces of the universe conspired to make this wedding flawless - outfits were tailored on time, couriers reached on time, we found a learned priest here in Hawaii, a venue with a view thats breathtaking, a talented hair artist who was available - trusted & with full safety measures, jewelry from his aunt whose based on this island, chura and mangalsutra flew in from LA, the best and most well-known team of photographers & videographers here and most importantly - perfect pleasant weather with no rain! Thankfully my husband's aunt here is a wedding planner - she was super resourceful with full attention to detail on every aspect.
The video team on my instructions had dedicated one person to take care of the zoom call using the stand that was organised. Watching my loved ones who had dressed up for the occasion virtually & taking their blessings was an incredible experience. I'm no make up expert, but somehow that day I did it perfectly - a look that soft, feminine, flirty, elegant yet a bit glamorous.. Apt for a day wedding. In my experience, a lot has to do with being happy within and as a bride your face just glows with joy, I didnt miss having a makeup artist at all!
 
With just 10 people physically present and several others there virtually - I enjoyed every moment of my wedding . Every moment sank in slowly and I lived/absorbed all of it with no chaos around, only the sound of waves :)
 
The one thing that we were all very particular about was that every vendor had to wear a mask, every surface/tool/gadget we touched was sanitized, we had sanitizer bottles everywhere. We also ensured that the family members attending as well as the ither vendors had been taking adequate safety measures a few days before the wedding. We didnt want to let our guard down for even one day - small risks could endanger someone's health and that would be terrible, as a result of this joyous occasion.
 
For everyone out there whose having a lockdown wedding - you should totally be on cloud nine, its your big day and your intimate wedding can be the most meaningful one if you're happy on the inside. Also, now with so many ideas out there its totally worth it to get a wedding planner as theres so much you can do!
Eg. Your bridesmaids can co ordinate their dress for zoom
 
- You can send out wedding favors/gifts with props for the call
 
- Favours can be sent after the wedding I had this organized in New Delhi. Sent a hamper of Royce chocolates with a personalized note to the extended family.
 
The zoom/e invite can be nicely drafted.
 
Milnis and other ceremonies on zoom
 
Personalized masks and sanitizer bottle covers.
 
And lots more! Get creative 
 
Believe me, theres nothing like marrying the one you love amongst the people who really matter - its blissful, its joyful and an experience you ll never forget.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Fortunately for me I had a brand new heavy bridal lehenga by Siddharth Tytler lying with me in Delhi. I had bought it a few years agi for my sisters wedding and didn't end up wearing it, because I bought so many more! The shopaholic that I am :)
With such a short notice and during these challenging times it was impossible to get a lehenga in Hawaii. Hence I had this one couriered. I was quite sure it wont reach on time and was planning a back up outfit. But to my surprise the parcel came within a week and I could wear that lovely red bridal lehenga. It's true, you really do feel like an Indian bride once you're all dressed, and the traditional red lehenga has a huge role to play in that.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
R. It's like an exciting project! I think I had the best time choosing the venue. Because we were getting married on this beautiful island, every location was stunning. It was going to be a small intimate wedding and hence I wanted the best view. The venue, the flowers, the decor and figuring out a zoom display. All of it was fun, unique, unexpected and quite an adventure
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The fact that it was only family and as loved ones they could be a part of every moment, absorb everything thats going on. They coyld bless us and witness every ceremony peacefully. This is what got everyone very emotional and I had a momemt of realization - that this is what a wedding ceremony should be like. With large weddings a lot of my friends barely remember the rituals/traditions followed because there's so many people, so many thoughts in your head.. Its chaotic. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moments when neither my husband nor I could understand what the priest was saying as he was talking in Sanskrit and my prankster husband decides to say/do things to amuse us. Several times we were caught giggling on camera during a very serious ceremony. I'll never forget that, for me those were the moments I decided that we are now going to be together forever..
 
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.
For me it was all in one day! Starting from the chura, baraat, my entry as a bride, the hindu wedding ceremony, the griha pravesh, muh dikhai and the celebrations with some bubbly.
I was fortunate to be able to have all the ceremonies despite my challenging circumstances. I got married in Hawaii,
my Lehenga came from India, my Chura came from LA, I had worn my husband's aunts jewelry, did my own make up, the decor was stunning, the food was fabulous and the videographers were the most co operative as the had to keep on eye on the zoom video telecast too. All the vendors that we worked with were so helpful, they would take a lot of interest, make exceptions when its not necessary etc. I thought to myself this is the spirit of Hawaiian people, they're just so friendly and caring.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Live every second of your wedding!
Especially for Covid Brides -
Its still yoir special say, you're the star.. Never onve feel that your wedding was a compromise because it actually is a blessing in disguise. You ll feel so much more with just tbise who matter around you.
 
The glow only comes from within, hence pls do everything you can to remain happy those days. There is no need to stress, wnough people arw working to make your wedding the most special.
 
The one thing you can focus on is your pictures, makeup and your look. Those who couldn't attend the wedding will live it through the photos and also in future your children /grandchildren will see these. Images are timeless.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I did have a really cute and colorful Mehendi ceremony the day before at our home. His parents and relatives came over and we had a blast with the dholki and singing traditional punjabi songs. Of course all this was also telecast on zoom for my family that wasnt there. His aunt did my haldi and put mehendi for me on my hands and feet.
 
I felt so touched, that everyone throughout this wedding had gone out of their way to make me feel special. I wouldn't have it any other way :)

What a great way to start the day! Remember that we have new stories every day, so make sure to join us tomorrow for more.

Haiku, HI Sikh Fusion Wedding by Ohana Films

Good morning, beautiful ladies! If you were looking for inspiration, you've come to the right place because Kiran & Grant's wedding celebration is beyond amazing! If you have been following us for quite a while, you must know that we already featured this wedding with this spectacular gallery captured by Anna Kim Photography. However, this celebration packed so much beauty and flair that we wanted to give you a little more. Today's cinematographic delight by Ohana Films has everything you need to enjoy this celebration at its fullest. So, get ready to reach inspirational levels you have never experienced before! This time, we will take you on a visual trip to Haiku, Hawaii,  and, more specifically, to the Haiku Mill for you to take part in the wedding ceremony that united this lovely couple in marriage. And we want to make a big shoutout to Mira Savara Events for the perfect planning of this wedding celebration and Darren Keala for the incredible decor that set the mood for this life milestone. It was all a winning combination that we cannot stop seeing! Although the scenery was perfect, nothing compared to our lovely Maharani Kiran, who looked drop-dead gorgeous after being pampered by Maui Makeup Artistry. To end this wedding bash with a bang, Kiran & Grant celebrated their marriage with an intimate and elegant reception party hosted at the Andaz Maui At Wailea Resort. And all we have to say is that it was one celebration to remember! If you want to see more about all the fantastic details surrounding this celebration of love, hit the play icon below and get ready to enjoy this real-life fairytale. We are sure you are going to love every single detail of it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Brought together by a personal matchmaker, Grant & I first crossed paths at the Claremont Hotel, Berkeley. We gabbed over cocktails & delicious eats for hours, closing the joint down. Our shared sense of humor and outlook on life unraveled so naturally, as though we had known each other all along. We left each other's company knowing in our hearts we would be together always.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
A romantic at heart, Grant wished to incorporate details in my life that he knew I held close to my heart. Knowing how passionate I was as an educator, he felt that nothing would best the setting of proposing to me in my classroom while involving my students and my principal who also had become a close friend of mine over the years.
 
After asking my father for his blessing, Grant put forth his plan on May 31st - my parents' anniversary - by arriving to school during the afternoon recess. While I heard the pandemonium garner momentum outside of the classroom, Grant was "stealthily" handing out roses to each student, who had become quite acclimated with him the past few months, dubbing us "Granjeet" as a "matrimony" of our names - Grant & Kiranjeet - while also mischievously writing cliched poetry and love notes on our behalf addressed to one another. 
 
Once the bell rang, each student sauntered in to the classroom, desperately attempting to stifle their excitement, to present a rose to me with Grant finally handing me a rose himself, proclaiming his love and desire for us to be together every day for the remainder of our lives. As he knelt down to ask for my hand, my students finally let loose their giggles and gasps of gleeful anticipation, and when I responded with "yes", the screams, shrieks, and rapture were beyond containment. Plastic champagne glasses flowing with sparkling apple cider ensued, and, true to form, what a unique unforgettable shared experience Grant created for my students to participate in such a special, heartfelt moment!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Once we immediately fell in love with Haiku Mill, cosmic forces collided with Sabyasachi's 2017 Udaipur Collection. The lehengha's green & yellow hues on raw silk complimented the lush gardens of Haiku Mill fluidly as though the cloth itself was a natural extension of the organic vines and branches found throughout the grounds. Noticeably visible was the mosaic border of the lehengha as it continued as the floral print, becoming more English influenced, a metaphorical nod to our multicultural wedding's blend of customs.
 
In my mind's eye, I had long envisioned incorporating a rich tone of emerald green for my wedding lehenga, so discovering this particular design and scheme was quintessential kismat. Simply stated, the wedding dress and the stunning venue was a match made in heaven.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
It was our best endeavor to have all of our guests regarded as one OHANA during the course of our shared time in Maui. We heard from a plethora of friends and family how special and close knit they came to feel with how each event integrated both sides together seamlessly, encouraging new relationships and bonds to form and remain established even to this day. From the onset, Grant & I strongly desired for our wedding to allow everyone to feel like a part of the "inner circle of trust."
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
With that ring comes ALOT of "responsibility". How right you are mom!
