If you want to unveil all the beauty of this wedding, click play and get ready to be amazed!

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"?
I met my husband through family from my dad's side. I knew he was the one when we first started talking, we connected so well together. He sent me a message on September 2nd, 2018, I replied back 1 hour later. We started talking through message for a few weeks and from there everyday after that we were on the phone for at least an hour each night if not more.  He's patient, kind, fun, smart, and an amazing husband. We would talk about random things from food to favorite places to pet peeves. He was living in Maryland at the time and I was in California. I invited him to fly out to Cali for my birthday weekend to get to know each other. Let me just say, I had NEVER done anything like that before, but if felt right and felt like I had known him forever. December 15th 2018 he proposed and we got married on June 27th 2020.  I knew from the 1st phone call that he was "the ONE".
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ok, are you ready for this...this was the best/funny proposal EVER!! My boyfriend had planned this perfect proposal in San Diego with the sunset and music in the back. I had no idea, and knowing me I take forever to get ready, and I had messed up his plans with the sunset proposal. We still go to San Diego, and act like everything is normal, he than writes a note on his phone explaining to the person that will be driving the canoe, that I will be proposing to my fiancee. We stop in the middle of the water, where good pictures cannot be taken, I turn around and he's on his knees with the ring and I have this HUGE smile on my face and the "aww" moment. I give him the biggest hug and kiss with no words to describe how I was feeling.
 
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.
My overall experience was one big rollercoaster. At first, I thought I was going to cancel my wedding due to the pandemic situation. Luckily, I found the banquet hall "The Spice Garden" where I had my wedding held and was a magical moment that day. I had my hair and makeup done by Lulu (dolledupbylulu), who is an amazing/patient artist. My outfits were done in India, and I love the decor theme that I did. I was going for traditional look that also looked fancy and went with my lengha.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I selected my bridal lengha on the spot when I went to India in December. I had the color in mind and what kind of pattern that I was going for. I was going for a red traditional bride look because I knew what kind of jewelry I wanted to wear and how I wanted my makeup and hair style done. When it comes to shopping I am really peeky as to what kind of work it is or what color the blouse and dupatta will be. Doing shopping in India from Asopalav was amazing because I got all my outfits from there and I'm really happy with all of the outfits that I wore on the both days. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was putting all of it together, from starting to the guest list to all the way to the decorations to choosing the food. It was like puzzle pieces coming together day by day with all the planning that was done by my family and I. I really enjoyed the planning process and got to experience/learn new ritual along the way. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved the ceremony and the food.
Also, they loved the setup and how everything was organized and falling into place with the sitting arrangement.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A special moment in my wedding that constantly replays in my mind is, when I walked down the aisle like a princess, knowing that I am marrying the love of my life who is going to be now my husband. Another special moment that constantly replays in my mind is when we did the pheras around the fire and promised to be with each other for eternity.
 
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.
I want to thank Vishal Kumar the owner of The Spice Garden, Peter Nguyen Studio and his team for the cinematography and the wonderful pictures. The decorations and the style of the set up was ABSOLUTELY fantastic. It was my wedding dream come true. A big shoutout to my girls who were my bridesmaids for the beautiful dances they did. The decorations were mind blowing and matched my outfit that I was wearing for the wedding day.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Work together
Don't rush through life's landmarks
Enjoy each other
laugh together
Never bring up mistakes from the past
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehndi was gorgeous and I really loved every small detail that was done to signify the love that I have for my husband. I had a stethoscope drawn with his initial "M" in the middle to show my love for him and that I LOVE HIM SO VERY MUCH?

See you tomorrow for more. Same place, same time!

Perry Hall, Maryland Sikh Wedding by Virdee Films Photo-Video

Happy Wednesday, Maharanis! Are you ready to revisit one of the love stories that we loved the most? We know you are! So, let's not wait anymore and enjoy this cinematographic delight captured by Virdee Films Production. Manjeet & Harman's wedding celebration already featured in this awesome gallery, and we all loved it so much as it was a breath of fresh air during the most crucial times of the ongoing pandemic. Back in January, Maharani Manjeet planned her wedding down to the smallest detail. However, the emergence of COVID-19 called for an unexpected change of plans. Two weekends before Manjeet & Harman's, the lockdown started, and this lovely couple had two options. They could postpone the wedding until a later unknown date or make the best of an unfortunate situation and celebrate their love with an intimate wedding celebration. Thankfully, they chose the second option, and oh boy, they had a wedding to remember! Instead of postponing the wedding date, they moved it one week ahead of what they had initially planned and united their lives in marriage through an intimate ceremony hosted at the Perry Hall - Maryland. And we know that planning a wedding ceremony is not easy, let alone under the current conditions they were facing. However, RJ Best Events took the challenge and orchestrated a magical wedding that everyone loved! All of this, while still managing to comply with the safety measurements regarding social distancing. How amazing is that! Our lovely  Maharani looked drop-dead gorgeous on her big day thanks to Glow By Herneet, who took care of her beauty needs. And we were dying to share today's film with all of you as it is a celebration of love and proof that love can face all sorts of challenges and still prevail. So, make sure to click the play icon below and get ready to enjoy it. We're sure it is going to take your breath away!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He added me on IG 2 years prior but never messaged me. Finally 2 years later he messaged me on Instagram and we finally met each other a few months after messaging/talking on the phone. After getting to know each other, we discovered so many similarities between us amd our family. I slowly fell for him without knowing it, so when he popped the question, it was a no brainer for me.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were talking on the phone and he just asked me slickly, in the middle of a conversation, after I realized what he asked me, 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 was avoiding planning the wedding for a month and a half but I would stress about not having it done. One Saturday morning in January I sat down and called and booked decorators, MUA, film/video, DJ. I met the DJ and videographer/photographer at the Dulhan Expo in NJ in December 2019 so that made it a little easier. Just as I thought I was in the home stretch, COVID-19 had other plans for our wedding! 2 weekends before we were supposed to get married (3/28/2020), we had to make the decision to postpone until a later unknown date, or we could make the best of an unfortunate situation. We decided to move the wedding up to 3/21/2020- one week ahead, and move the venue to my parents house. I ended up planning the whole wedding again, in 3 hours!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always wanted our clothes to stand out- not be the typical red for the bride, and ivory for the groom. I had my magenta salwar kameez made from Punjab from a boutique. And I pushed my husband to wear a blue sherwani, which was also made in Punjab, India.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part was meeting the vendors! I am a very sociable person, so I loved the interactions between my family and the vendors. And although I had to make numerous phone calls to each vendor to change the plans, it was an enjoyable experience!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The 60 guests we were allowed to have at our house (gathering limitations in place due to COVID19) loved the traditional feel they got from our wedding. They loved the simplicity yet elegance of having a wedding within our own home.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The very first time I saw my husband which was when I walked down the aisle for the jai mala ceremony. Everything else is a blur!

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 bridesmaids had a dance planned, which unfortunately they couldn't perform due to the restrictions in place, I only had one of my bridesmaids at the wedding. We had to make a lot of the decor ourself as the big decorations weren't able to fit in our house, they were meant for our banquet hall.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
You can plan and plan and plan, but stuff always comes up (maybe not as big as a pandemic virus). Instead of focusing on how to get what you planned, always have a back up plan and be optimistic. Sometimes last minute plans are the best!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehndi lady was choosen a few months ahead of time and she was absolutely pleasant- Shazia in Gaithersburg, MD. Decorations were done by RJ best events in Towson, MD. My MUA was a family friend, and none other than GlowbyHerneet.

We hope you've loved today's film as much as we did. If you want to check more inspiring love stories, make sure to join us tomorrow!
