How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in 2017 on a little dating app known as DilMil. We spent the better part of 7 years eating and traveling with each other, strengthening our bond. I knew he was the one when I saw his personality and how sweet and caring he was to me, and I knew he was the one as soon as I met him on our first date. Through the years, he showed me he cared and made an effort to keep me genuinely happy, making sure all of my thoughts and feelings were heard and understood.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He proposed to me in Akumal Bay, Mexico in a cenote. This was by far the most unique experience I have ever had or seen! He took me through a jungle in my dress and him in a suit and took me to a cenote with a little lake in it and proposed to me while the photographers were hidden.

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.
It was possibly one of the most stressful times in my life, but it was well worth it! We spent countless hours a day looking at ideas, dances, makeup ideas, venues, etc to find the best fit for us. We ended up choosing our vendors based on countless hours of research and talking. Overall, the vendors were the best! They informed us and kept up with our needs and thoughts, as well as made sure we didn't miss anything, even if we didn't mention it! Pinterest, Instagram, and viewing influencers were my main ways of finding ideas and thoughts about what we wanted!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted to do a variation of a red color and went to India through many different markets and shops to look for the perfect outfit until I went Thakur G in Vadodra and saw the lehnga and fell absolutely in love with it! It was love at first sight, and I never regretted or thought about that decision.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
It was for sure planning it with my husband and having him with me every step of the way. The way we bounced ideas off each other and managed not to pull each other's hair out amazes me to this day. He not only was active in giving ideas, thoughts, and insights but also was integral in all the vendors and other things we did

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests, for sure, still rave about the food and music. The food was absolutely perfect (I never had the time to try it!), and the music, especially the MC during the baarat, engaged everyone and made everyone involved dance and enjoy the moment. People we have never seen move at any event were seen actually dancing and enjoying themselves!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The pheras and first look we had were the special moment. The way he looked at me and said "DAMN" out loud to the moment we walked around the fire were all the most special moments I will never forget and keep replaying over and over again. It signified to me that I was finally with my "forever person," and I could enjoy my life with him!

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 our events we did something a bit different than most by doing our dances during the garba and only had younger people at our reception. We made sure every single person in both families joined us for a group dance where, even for the slightest time, they all got out of their seats and came on the dance floor to celebrate not only us but also to have them enjoy themselves too! For the dances, we spent hours practicing with each other and our groomsmen/bridesmaids, and as for the decor, we didn't want to stick to the traditional decor and ideas, so for unique ideas, our food rather than being served on tables, we had them on "street carts" during the garba similar to the food carts you see around India, we had out stage decorated bottom to top with fabric, umbrellas, and an "Arabian" seat style sitting.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There will be stress and a lot of it, but in the end, it's all worth it! Always keep in mind something my husband kept reminding me: if something can go wrong, it WILL go wrong, and the more you try to make it perfect or try to fix things, the more it'll be stressful but also make things worse, so take it easy, relax, plan what you actually can and once you're on wedding days let it all be and enjoy your time and look forward to being with your "forever person."

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The Mehndi person we used was absolutely amazing! (Rita Shah)She hid Shivam's name in my hand to the point where I struggled to find it, and it stumped almost every member trying to find it. We didn't know where it was until we had to beg her to tell us! The jewelry I used was handed down by Mom or bought from Jersey City at Taj Jewelers, where they not only gave us amazing prices but also made sure everything and anything we had asked for was there for us! The venue heard us out and did everything in its power to make our events go smoothly (Royal Albert's Palace). They ensured the food, seating, etc, were handled and done at a proper time and allowed our vendors ample time to come in early to handle their business, giving us a smooth and easy event!

The wedding was an unforgettable fairytale, a day that blended tradition and modernity, romance and charm.

Leesburg, VA Indian Wedding by Catch Motion Studio

Monday is looking promising, loves! I'm eager to share this new story full of romance, elegance, and more! Aanchal & Neel's wedding was beautiful and filled with love and romance. This incredible event was planned and designed by Aananya by ZK, who did a fantastic job of bringing the couple's vision to life. The wedding festivities began with the Sangeet at the Clarksburg Town Center Community Center. Then a ceremony at the Lansdowne Resort and Spa, a stunning location, beautiful facilities, and attentive staff make it a popular destination. And it was beautifully decorated by Liz Decorations, creating a romantic and elegant atmosphere. The Baraat was the wedding highlight, with Neel arriving in style on a horse provided by Olde Towne Carriages. They offered a traditional and memorable experience. It added an elegant and grand touch to the wedding procession and created a lasting memory for the bride, groom, and guests. Aanchal looked stunning in her traditional Indian attire, styled by JYO Drapes. Hair by Mimi styled her hair, and Malia's Makeup Artistry did her makeup. Bhavna's Henna created beautiful henna designs to add a traditional touch to her incredible look. She looked stunning! The reception was at the Lansdowne Resort and Spa, and it was a night to remember! Platinum Roadshow and the spectacular lighting job from SVPDJ entertained the guests with their music. Everyone enjoyed the delicious plates prepared by Clove & Cardamom RestaurantGirl Meets Cake provided the cake and treats, which were delicious, and all the guests enjoyed them. Aanchal & Neel's wedding was a beautiful and romantic celebration captured beautifully by Catch Motion Studio, who did a fantastic job with the photography. Thank you for taking the time to view our gallery. We hope that you enjoyed the experience and all the details!

How did you meet your Groom, and when did you know he was "the one"?
My husband and I met when we were in high school. I was a Freshman, and he was a Sophomore. We were both in the same Spanish class, and our teacher assigned our seats to be next to each other because she said “she saw the spark.” We began dating the following semester and have been together now for 12 years! I knew he was the one when he was there for me through thick and thin and stuck around through it all.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My older sister told me her fiancé had an award ceremony in DC that we all were going to attend. The weekend before the “award ceremony,” my mom, 2 sisters, and I went shopping for our outfits. On the day of the proposal, my family and I got ready together, and we headed to the Georgetown waterfront. As I was walking down the beautiful steps of the waterfront, I reflected on how beautiful of a day it was and how gorgeous the water looked. As I made my way around the fountain and up the stairs closer to the water, I saw a group of people in a formation. The next thing I know, music plays, and a flash mob is occurring right before my eyes. Midway into the performance, my then soon to be fiancé made his way from the back of the group to the front, and at the end of the amazing dance, he took my hand, brought me by the water, and popped the question in front of our closest family and friends!

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.
It was difficult planning a wedding during Covid and having to postpone our plans. A lot of my shopping was done online, including dresses, jewelry, and accessories. Luckily we have a dream team of vendors that we used previously for our engagement party, so we wanted to keep with the same team for the most part for the wedding! We also worked with Saumil Parikh from SVP Entertainment, who is a close family friend, and he guided us through a lot of the process.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Pinterest was my savior! I was able to pick up colors and styles that really suited my personality and found a great vendor through Etsy to buy my wedding dress. I knew I wanted to go traditional red for the ceremony and had to throw in teal at some point because it’s my favorite color! So I chose a bold teal to wear for the reception.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was, by far, being able to plan with my best friend of a husband! He was not a laid-back groom; he made sure to involve himself and give his opinions! Which worked really well for me because I’m so indecisive. He also used to DJ and event plan, so he brought a lot of great thoughts to the planning process. Aside from that, I’d have to say I individually loved planning out the decor and making my sketches of each event come to life through the colors we chose!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they really loved how we made each event OURS. We adapted traditions to what represented us, and we involved our wedding party, which we love so much, to really be apart of our wedding events. I think that brought a wholesome feeling that really filled the room.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first looks! I had 3 first looks, first with the groomsmen, then with the rest of the wedding party and family, and finally with my husband-to-be. The momentum grew perfectly, leading up to the most awaited moment of my life, to see my groom see me as his bride. It was such a unique thing we did, and I loved that it played out that way.

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 Liz Decorations for all of our decor and she went above and beyond! We really wanted each event to have a different look and feel from the other. We wanted the mehendi to be fun and vibrant while the garba had a traditional and musical feel to it. We wanted the ceremony to have a romantic, simpler look with a contrast of the reception to be grand and elegant. And Liz executed all of these visions so beautifully!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Plan ahead as much as you can and make to-do lists! You can’t account for everything, but you don’t want to feel stressed out leading up to your big day (because the nerves will kick in any way!). We have a lot of time to plan, especially with postponing our wedding date. I know that won’t be the case for every bride and groom, so use the time that you have efficiently by making monthly to do tasks. Also, definitely hire a wedding day coordinator! This literally saved my life, and I could not be more thankful for Aananya!
To all the brides- don’t forget to keep aside moments for you and your groom to take a breath and capture what’s happening around you. It’s going to go by so fast, and you’ll want to sink it in while it’s all there in front of you.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My wedding day jewelry was bought from Evotique (located in CA, but they work over video calls as well)! Our amazing cake was made by Girl Meets Cake- Misty was so lovely to work with, and she really takes the feedback to make you the most delicious cakes with the best flavor combos! Bhavna’s Henna did my mehendi and she incorporated the story of us starting from high school through where we live in the DMV- her art is amazing! We are so thankful to all of our vendors for getting us through the highs and lows of wedding planning!
What a lovely wedding! Sweeties, see you tomorrow for more tips and stories. Same place, same time!

To start, we wanted to make you feel part of the fun-loving and colorful Garba that was held at the imposing DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Ontario Airport. We are blown away by the decoration and the colors that B Unique & Elegant selected for this event and how well they complement each other to create a captivating, romantic and fun atmosphere. However, it was the presence, love, and joy of Purvi & Vishal that stole the scene. Our beautiful Maharani wore an elegant and stylish teal lengha with golden accents that matched perfectly with the attire chosen by Vishal. And you know how much we love when we see the couples wearing matching outfits! And what about the impressive makeup and hairstyle that Purvi was rocking. She looks breathtaking thanks to the stylish and exquisite makeup selection by Bridal By Nisha. The nude colors combined with the refined and classy hairstyle enhanced the delicate and natural beauty of our lovely Maharani and makes her look like a goddess. And if you were thinking that the photos were already amazing on their own, wait until you take a look at the film created by Peter Nguyen Studio feature on our Video Blog, it is the perfect complement for this top of the line session.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We were introduced to each other by his sister. He got my phone number and we talked for 7 hours that night. The next day he booked a flight out to meet me and from that connection from our first date, we knew it was meant to be. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Vishal told me he was on call at the hospital so I would not call him and my best friend, Tamanna, told me she needed girl time so she wanted to hang out with me and do brunch in the morning. Vishal then took a late night flight out to California and spent the night at a hotel in Orange County. In the morning, he bought flowers and laid them out in the shape of a heart on Crystal Cove beach. My friend then took me to the brunch spot on the beach and I see Vishal out of the corner of my eye next to big heart shaped flower petals on the sand. I immediately curse him out and walk towards him. He asks me to marry him. My parents and other friend are on the side videotaping everything.
 
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 best friend, Tamanna, helped a lot throughout the process. She is very organized and made me excel spreadsheets to help guide me through the process. 
 
The Venue has never done a full on indian wedding and they kept changing things they said they would do originally. Would not recommend Doubletree Ontario.
 
Hair and Makeup: LuLu was great and very professional, she was always on time and does great work
 
Outfits: I loved all my outfits, they were all from India and my foi helped do last minute alterations
 
Decor: This took the most amount of time, I spent a lot of time picking colors and centerpieces. Everything turned out well.
 
DJ: Krish from FusionSounds was amazing and did an amazing job with lighting, dhol, and DJ. He played all the music my husband loved. I would recommend him to everyone. 
 
Food: Mantra catered garba and reception, Sumit is very professional and gave great food and service. Swaminarayan mandir did the wedding, the food was good but they increased their price last minute during the event without letting us know.
 
Photography: would not recommend Peter Nguyen. His team was great, but he himself gets distracted very easily and you have to actively tell him what photos to take. He did not get any pictures of the food and during the events instead of taking photos, he was wandering around. His team members though are very focused and captured the best photos. He also promised to give us our video by March 27 and documentary edit by May 4 and still have not received anything.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went shopping in India and had my foi and cousins help me. We went to several shops and I had red in my mind. It was very hard to shop in India, but I ended up falling in love with a red wine colored lehenga. As soon as my cousins saw it on me, they instantly said this was the one. It did take a couple days to find it and I almost settled on another one. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Spending time with family for the different parts of the process. I got to spend lots of time with my cousins from India, who I rarely get to see because they are so far away. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the entertainment at the reception and the food from Mantra during garba and reception.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance, we recreated the Hero No. 1 song Sona kitna Sona and had the original music video playing on the projector.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Pick the better vendors with the better reviews.
 
We have more of this lovely wedding for you. Join us on our next post, to attend the traditional and solemn wedding ceremony. You don't want to miss it!
