How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Manraj and I met in high school. We were close friends in grade 8, and later began dating in grade 10. I knew he was the one when I realized there was no one else I wanted to spend my days with.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
In grade 10, Manraj asked me to be his girlfriend on an old couch from the 80s in my parents basement. Exactly 7.5 years later, Manraj asked me to marry him on that same exact couch. With the help of some friends, the couch was moved to a forested cliff area at Whytecliff Park. The area was adorned with candles and lanterns. He popped the question and I 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.
Planning this wedding was definitely interesting. Manraj and I began our planning in 2018, pre-COVID-19. We originally planned a 750 person wedding at an outdoor venue, with an equally as large reception the following day. We-replanned just four months before our wedding date with a lot of help! Thankfully all of our vendors were available for our new date and were excited to be a part of our new plans. There was not a lot of time to discuss nitty gritty details, so we put a lot of faith into our vendors and gave them a lot of creative liberties. We were not disappointed!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Like many brides, the lengha I wore was not the lengha I originally envisioned. I knew I wanted to stick to traditional colours, so I opted for a red and gold lengha. I originally saw myself in an incredibly simple lengha with minimal embroidery. Instead, I went for a moderately embroidered lengha, which I loved!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
While the planning and re-planning process was stressful, I enjoyed all of the planning sessions with my family and friends. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, many family members and friends were not able to attend the ceremony. But they were excited to see all of the details we discussed as they watched via live stream. I also enjoyed working with an incredibly creative and insightful vendor team. My vendors made incredible suggestions throughout the whole planning process. I felt lucky to be working with so many wonderful creatives.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the intimacy of the wedding. The wedding Manraj and I originally planned was quite large and our guest list was bursting at the seams. COVID-19 was almost a blessing in disguise and allowed us to host incredibly intimate events that we wouldn't have under normal circumstances. Many guests commented that this was the first wedding they attended that they actually got to spend time with the bride and groom!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The chaos before the wedding often replays in my mind. We chose to host our ceremony in my parents backyard. The morning of the wedding there was an unexpected shower of rain. Vendors were scrambling to make sure nothing got wet and guests were being rained on as minimally as possible. As soon as the ceremony began the rain let up, and as we finished our fourth laavan the sun came out and it turned into an incredibly sunny day. It was definitely something out of a movie!

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 wanted our pre-events to be bright and lively, paying homage to the energetic and cheerful ambiance of traditional Indian weddings. For our wedding, we envisioned a lot of greenery and florals but trusted our decor team to make final calls with colour schemes and specifics.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Planning a wedding is a lot of work and often takes years of planning. In uncertain times such as these, the best thing Manraj and I did was accept the situation for what it was. We knew we wanted to be married and that was all that mattered. We also had a phenomenal team of vendors who we felt went above and beyond for us. We definitely suggest getting to know your vendors and choosing personalities you think will understand your wants and needs.

What a great way to start the week! If you want to enjoy more inspiring stories, make sure to join us tomorrow. We have new content every day!

Glencove, NY Sikh Wedding by Vaaho Photography

Get ready to enjoy Evani & Gurpal's intimate wedding celebration in today's Platinum Guide Blog!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my groom through my sister and his brother. Being a single mother my mom was very protective about my sister and I so where she went I had to go along... it was kind of like the buddy system with my sister. So when she began to date Manpreet, my now brother in law, my mom would always send me along cause she didn’t know in fact they were going on dates and my sister decided to wait to tell her that they were a couple. Once or twice was okay but third time Manpreet also had enough and began to bring his brother along. In the beginning me and my husband could not stand one another, but as time went on we became friends and a support system for each other of a sort, I had just gone through a break up and swore I would only date to marry because if theres no future I didnt want to go down that road. Gurpal, aka Ronie, knew that and he assured me that we were just friends, till that one day when he told me he loved me, everything changed.

I knew he was the one when I saw the way he treated his own family and my family and the way he held everyone at such a high regard. Ronie & I are both Punjabi but our religious upbringing is quite the opposite which I always felt would become an issue but we always talked openly and I found that to be such a strong quality in him. We dated for four years and in those 4 years he not once pressured me into changing, he accepted me and my family for who we were and I accepted him and his family for who they were, there was such a high level of understanding between me and him and our families that felt like it was unreal.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I always dreamed for the big proposal, I swore I didn't want to do it the desi way of roka then ring cause it never felt right to me, at that point you know theres a ring coming there is no surprise factor! But of course you imagine one way and something else happens, but he really blew me off my feet and did it in a way I never could have imagined. We had an expedited roka in April and we were deciding a wedding date and all and then in August on my birthday my mom and sister surprised me with tickets to Paris. Ever since we were young my mom told us that when we got married we would go to Paris for our wedding shopping and she made it happen! I didn't think much into it because its been a thing we've heard for so long. The day we land in Paris my sister had already booked to go up inside the Eiffel tower so we got dressed, my husband had bought me a dress for my birthday which was actually meant for this moment and I ended up wearing that exact one, and went. As I am looking at the Eiffel tower someone taps me on my back and I turn and my husband is on one knee and his parents and brothers are standing behind him. It was so magical, he even hired a professional photographer who took professional pics but only got one picture of the actual reaction cause so many people ended up crowding around. It was just so magical, then both our families stayed for 7 days and traveled and shopped and I feel like the trip brought both families closer.

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 a wedding in general is very tough, you cannot even begin to imagine how tough it was to plan during COVID! My overall experience with Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor theme, etc. was over my expectations!! Every vendor of mine went above and beyond and did even more than I would have imagined especially during COVID!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I selected my wedding outfit the first day I went to see options. My in laws own Samaira and husband owns Sammaira Man which are both desi wedding boutiques, they dress everyone for events so the pressure was really on to look the most unique and different. I knew I was going to do red as the color but I wanted more colors in it as well, when I tried the sample piece which was a lengha I fell in love with the concept, from that piece I customized my actual wedding day outfit.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process had to have been having family and friends over all the time planning and executing everything. It was like having a party everyday!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All my guests kept telling me at each event how much love was in the air! Even after the wedding everyone remembers how much love and affection their was between both bride and grooms side and even among the guests!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
A special moment that constantly replays in my mind is when we did our welcome dinner photoshoot outside Taco Bell! My husband and I have a crazy obsession for Taco Bell, when our photographer asked us if where we wanted to do the photoshoot at the beach or in Central Park, etc we said no...we wanted different and we definitely got it!!

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.
Because of COVID and the social guidelines we had to follow our whole wedding was just family on both sides and I loved that!! Our guest list was the same throughout the week so the challenge was to make sure the was no repetition where guests would get bored. Overall I wanted to do colorful decor and my decorator and planner, Sonam & Ricky from exclusive decor, made it all come to life! Every event was different decor creating a different ambiance making it a different feel for al our guests!!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My words of wisdom for future brides to be is...have fun & go with the flow!! I planned every single detail small and big as soon as we chose a date, but then without a doubt everything went sideways with COVID. At that point I said forget it, I went with the flow and I had soooo much more fun and enjoyed everything so much more!! The tears and the stress was not needed, it was so much more fun when I began to go with the flow!

Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!
