How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We actually met on a South Asian dating app called dil mil. It's funny that he knew he was going to marry me after our first date which I learned after the fact. I knew he was the one after a few months when we had watched an emotional Bollywood movie, Neerja. I had asked myself if I could ever imagine my life without him and the answer was no. That night I asked him to "define" whatever we had and I told him how I felt about him and said "I love you" first.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was actually in Los Angeles for American Academy of Neurology conference for poster presentation. We both love to travel and he proposed the idea that he would come down and hang out with me for few days while I'm there attending the conference. He supposedly "planned" fancy dinner in Malibu and gets me all dressed. When he are driving down route one with this beautiful scenery, he tells me we are little early. It was sunset time, and gets me to go on the matador beach. I was little scared on the hill and was refusing to go down but he insisted and said "I would carry you down because it's beautiful there." As I'm walking down and come closer I hear my favorite song being played on the violin, "kabhi kabhi" and he started singing it. And the rest was history.
 
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 pretty much did planning ourselves. We knew we didn't want everything to be super traditional. We had attending weddings at our venue before and I had visioned my wedding there from the beginning. We looked around other venues but something that made me feel part of the natural and beautiful outdoor scenery I could not find better than this venue. I actually booked my hair and makeup person about 2 months prior to the wedding. It was a struggle between keeping it good and cost-effective. And luckily I found the perfect people who did an amazing job. Decoration wise, we both knew we wanted a floral theme and had a particular color scheme in mind. But my biggest thing was wisteria for the mandap. And it turned out great. Ad to other details, it was more of my project as Jay was busy taking care of bigger projects. Ranging from finding last-minute cost-effective parasol umbrellas to fruit snack and program fans was something that took time but made it happen in last 2 and half weeks. Luckily it all worked out. And my husband wanted those ice pops after hot sweaty baraat so we made that happen. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I love red. But I wanted some non-traditional. I knew I was not going to do red. I went back to surat, Gujarat, India where I was born. The first day and first shop, the third dress I said this is it. It was one of their designer dress that I could actually wear in a routine as well. It was so elegant simple yet gave a glamorous look. When I put it on, we all knew that was the dress. I went in thinking I was going to wear pistachio color and ended wearing beige. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the best part was choosing the details because that's where I could let my creativity and vision become alive. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved every detailed about the wedding whether it's ranging from their welcome bags to welcomes to our epic nontraditional helicopter vidai. But the best part they loved was food, music, and our heartfelt welcome. We really could be more joyful if not for their presence and blessings.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I first walked down during our wedding ceremony and set down and that feeling of joy that I got expressed with overwhelming tears that I could not control is something I could never forget. 
 
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 had our Garba one week prior for which we had left the decoration last minute. We luckily found the decorators who made it happen in less than 2 weeks notice and the indo yet western-style we wanted. Ranging from swing to traditional umbrella to photo booth with a bicycle. My husband is a great dancer and for reception, we both had surprise dances planned for each other. Him and his groomsmen did an amazing dance. I had done solor and couple group dances but surprised him with my family flashmob which included my siblings, parents, uncles and aunts and cousins a s friends. For the reception, we wanted more nontraditional decoration style for the backdrop and with floral theme and it worked out great. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process. It takes a long time to plan and coordinate everything but it is absolutely amazing in the end and it is worth every bit.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I absolutely love mt.mehndi. it told a story. I had NY/Brooklyn skyline on one hand and surat skyline on the other which said where both of us were from. I also had a logo of Dil mil app without an initial date. And not the other side I had stethoscope and calculator representing our careers. And on each palm had bride and groom. I also had our hashtag and wedding date. His name, which he still cant find. I absolutely loved our venue backdrop. It was an outdoor wedding with a mountain backdrop and it was amazing. I decided to keep simple but elegant jewelry and it was perfectly matching to the border of my dress and Jay's clothes. I did not want to do bouquet as I had made a wooden headpiece for my brothers to hold during my entrance that was decorated with flowers. Couldn't have been more thankful to my brother for staying up late 2 days before the wedding to make it possible.

 

Have a great weekend full of inspiring ideas! See you on Monday for more!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through family friends who were trying to set us up.  I think we both had little to no expectations before we met so it ended up being a good surprise.  There was a point after dating where I was going through a rough patch at work.  Rushi would listen to me complain (a lot) and be supportive.  Something unpleasant happened with my supervisors, and I remember when I told him what happened - he was so upset.  Probably more upset than me.  I remember thinking, "Wow, he really cares about me.  This could be it."  The next 2 years sealed the deal!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had been planning a trip to Ireland.  Rushi had already been there before but this was my first time visiting there.  We rented a car and drove along the countryside, visiting some new places for him and his favorites we had been before.  We were in Killarney visiting Killarney National Park.  We started walking into this forest-like area off the beaten path.  We were getting deeper and deeper in the forest (I was starting to panic a bit).  We reached a clearing where it was large, circle of mowed grass encircled by large trees.  In the middle of this, there was a gazebo with some benches. He sat down first, and as I was about to sit down next to him, I noticed this ring on the bench.  I picked it up and told him, " look, someone left their ring."  He responded with, "yes, I will marry you."  And now the running joke is that I proposed to him lol.  

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.
Planning our wedding was a bit of a challenge as our families are in different locations.  We considered multiple locations but ended up picking home for me - Fort Worth, TX.  We looked at venues that could accommodate what we were looking for in a venue - an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception.  We ended up picking the Worthington Renaissance Hotel in Sundance Square - they had an amazing rooftop terrace with fountains that we thought would be perfect for the ceremony.

Venues took some time overall.  I visited a lot of them and hardest part would be availability.  Some were booked almost 2 years in advance.  But it was worth it to keep looking for the right place.  

Hair and make up - I did my own makeup for my mehndi, pithi, and rehearsal dinner.  For the wedding and reception, Rushi and my mom convinced me that I should have someone help me so it would be one less thing to worry about.  They were absolutely they were right.  I didn't do a trial but I looked at Instagram photos to figure out whose style I liked - MUA who would accomplish the look I was looking for.  The HMUA who did get me ready for both ceremony/reception did an amazing job - my makeup stayed right where it was supposed to all night and she accomplished the look without the use of so many products.

Decor theme - because we wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony - we tried to keep it simple.  We had a garden theme - with pink and white flowers and green foliage.  We used lanterns and birdcages along the aisle that were repurposed as reception centerpieces.  

DJ - We spent a lot of time finding a DJ.  We wanted someone who would turn our reception into a party. 
 We used this company called Outspoken Visions and they were amazing!  They were so flexible, moved out Gobo Monogram from the cocktail area, had a tabla player, worked with us on the uplighting.  Could not say enough nice things about this company!

Cake/Donuts - we opted to have cupcakes for the guests and a 6" naked cutting cake for us.  We wanted our guests to have options.  We got our cupcakes from Gigi's Cupcakes in North Fort Worth.  They did a fabulous job setting up and Kristi was so pleasant to work with.  I had seen donut walls on Instagram and really wanted to have one.  I worked with Angie at FunkyTown Donuts.  They also were so easy to work with and did an excellent job setting up and making suggestions that would work for our wedding.  

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Outfits - I went shopping with my mom and aunt at Sari Palace in Oakland, CA.  I had tried looking locally in DFW and also Atlanta at Global Mall with no luck.  Sari Palace had a huge selection and the outfits were customizable - such a great experience working with them.  I tried on about 20 total outfits before I decided on a lengha.  I love the color pink so it just ended that both my ceremony/reception outfits had pink or pink hues in it.  I loved that it had a contemporary look but yet still looked fitting for a bridal outfit.  I picked a Sherwani for Rushi that was similar to my bridal outfit (he didn't care what he wore lol). For the reception, my outfit was a dusty rose.  Rushi and I had picked a blue suit for him so he wore a tie matching my outfit.  

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly - being done, or rather checking things off our list.  I think both Rushi and I were really excited when the rehearsal dinner started because we knew that we had done our best and we were gonna have fun going forward no matter what.  

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We tried to keep our wedding casual.  The venue was in the middle of Sundance Square where people could walk around to go shopping or eating.  We had a later ceremony start time of 2p and reception to follow.  We asked that our bridesmaids and groomsmen wear whatever they want in shades of either gold/white/pink.  I think we wanted everyone to just come and enjoy themselves.

Oh and the donut wall 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance.  We didn't practice at all - we hadn't entirely decided if we would do a first dance until the week of.  Rushi loves Celion Dion (rightfully so) so we danced to "That's The Way It Is."  We just went in circles, but I remember being just really excited in that moment.  

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to enjoy the day of, it really does go by so fast.

 

This photoshoot is the perfect preamble for what's coming next, so stay close if you don't want to miss the upcoming wedding ceremony!

Raja Neil followed Arpen's lead and ended up looking handsome and imposing! Without any question, they look great together! This night, was one to remember and thanks to the fantastic work of Decibel Entertainment the dancefloor was on fire to the beats of the best Bollywood hits!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Neil and I met when I was in my final year of dental school and while he was completing his surgical residency program; our connection was instantaneous. We had seen each other a few times at the hospital, decided to grab coffee - and the rest is history! I knew he was the one after I learned how sweet, ambitious, and funny he is. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Neil surprised me with the proposal over a romantic dinner overlooking the Chicago skyline at The Signature Room at the 95th. I had no idea it was coming, and he had the waitress capture pictures of the entire thing; we celebrated afterwards with champagne & dessert - 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.
I kept organized by creating checklists; we were engaged for a year and a half before the wedding, so I knew what I needed to have booked at 12, 6, 3 months out. Pre-planning all of that helped me stay stress-free and allowed us to enjoy and make the most of the wedding events. Our vendors were also amazing - from the photographer, videographer, wedding decor & coordination, hair & makeup - our teams were so fabulous. I would definitely recommend them for future couples.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I honestly thought I was going to wear red; however, when I tried on that Rimple & Harpreet outfit, I knew it was the one. The intricacy of the textiles inspired by ancient India were stunning; and I loved that it was traditional, yet unique. Padmaavat is one of my favourite Indian films, especially because of the beautiful pieces that Rimple & Harpreet designed - I definitely had them in mind when I traveled to India. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they enjoyed the outdoor ceremony; the setting was stunning. Honestly, we were very happy with the venue that we chose - it had a very intimate feel, which is exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most memorable moment for me was when my parents walked me down the aisle and that first look with Neil; it was very special.
 

We hope you have a great week and don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!

Alberta, CA Sikh Wedding by Andras Schram Photography

Hi there, darlings! We continue our journey through Arpen & Neil's wedding celebration with a fantastic outdoor photoshoot carried out by the talented team of Andras Schram Photography. This photoshoot follows the line of elegance, style, and fashion that we already saw on the Sikh Wedding ceremony. As soon as we took a glance at the shots below, we couldn't help but think that the portraits look like taken out from the cover of a fashion magazine. The presence that Arpen & Neil have in front of the cameras is fantastic! They completely nailed a fashionable look while embracing a traditional style, and we love the final result! Our gorgeous Maharani looked like a princess on her beautiful lengha embellished with golden details from Rimple & Harpreet's collection. This ravishing look was taken to the next level thanks to the discreet and elegant makeup and hairstyle created by Book Glow Beauty and HairbyRhea, respectively. Although this look was already breathtaking on its own, a princess' look is not complete without an excellent selection of jewelry! The dazzling variety of golden jewels with green and red accents showcased in this photo session is fantastic, and this is just a small sample to what Jagdish Jewellers has to offer. Neil looked handsome as well on his champagne Sherwani suit complemented with a dark ruby turban! He looked elegant and imposing, completely embracing his inner Raja! Without any question, this is a dreamy and fashionable photo session that you are going to love! If you want to take a closer look at the most memorable shots of this day, visit our gallery for more. You are going to enjoy every bit of it!

I think they enjoyed the outdoor ceremony; the setting was stunning. Honestly, we were very happy with the venue that we chose - it had a very intimate feel, which is exactly what we wanted for our ceremony. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most memorable moment for me was when my parents walked me down the aisle and that first look with Neil; it was very special.
 

Don't go too far if you don't want to miss the upcoming wedding reception.
