How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ravi in college over summer session in 2008.  We were introduced by a mutual friend who suggested we should walk together to class since we were both heading in the same direction on campus at the same time every day. We actually didn’t get along at all at first, but that eventually changed.  We ended up making "deals" with each other.  I’d have a shopping companion at the mall and in turn, he’d have a partner to go to the theaters to watch ‘The Dark Knight’ again and again (3 times to be exact).  During one of our shopping trips, he saw me fall in love with a pair of peacock earrings which I didn’t end up buying. On this same day, I mistakenly purchased two left feet red heels from a last sale store.  He noticed all of this and bought me those earrings and red heels (a right and left) for my birthday.  I was absolutely floored that he paid such close attention to these details.  Fast forward to 2014 he proposed to me and after a 5-year engagement we FINALLY got married on October 2019.  We learned to speed up our timeline and are due with a baby boy in November 2020.  I met Ravi when I wasn’t even looking, but now I can’t stop looking at and admiring the beautiful life we made together.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think what people loved the most was the venue.  We had searched for months both online and in person with multiple flights back and forth from Philly to Charleston.  At one point, we started feeling defeated because we felt as though we were running out of options. On a day that we were set to return back to Philadelphia, we decided to check out Wild Dunes on a whim just a few hours before our flight and fell in love with it.  We knew if we were asking our friends and family to come all the way to South Carolina from the Northeast, we wanted it to be a vacation for them.  Our guests spent a few days extra exploring downtown Charleston, playing golf at the resort, and enjoying the beach.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I lost my grandmother to cancer in 2017.  While she was sick, she would always say that she’d make it long enough to be at our wedding.  Unfortunately, the cancer took her after a 2-year battle and she wasn’t able to see our wedding.  It hurt not having her there for our most special day.  She and my grandfather played such an integral part in my life that I felt it was important to have them play a big part in my wedding.  My grandfather walked me down the aisle and my grandmother's picture had the best seat in the house.
 
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 both wanted a destination wedding, but due to some concerns of close family members not being able to attend, we decided on a resort near my hometown.  We still wanted to incorporate a "tropical" vibe, so our mandap was made of tropical flowers and leaves and our aisle was lined with pineapples.  Our cocktail hour was located in a “boardwalk” setting just off the beach, with a beautiful sunset view of the ocean. Cocktail hour also featured a local steel drum band to entertain our guests.

If we inspired you today, you can't miss what we have prepared for you tomorrow. So stick around!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mike and I were set up by a mutual friend at school (University of Delaware) almost 10 years ago. We started dating my senior year and then I moved to NYC while Mike stayed in Delaware to complete his master's degree - we were long distance for 2 years and the second Mike moved to NYC, I knew I couldn't imagine being apart from him again!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Mike picked me up from work to grab a drink before we were going to a Kygo concert. Instead of grabbing a drink first we went for a stroll where he proposed in Battery Park. I found out later he was supposed to propose the day after in Central Park where we had one of our first real dates but once he found it was going rain he knew there was no chance of getting me to the park without being suspicious. He also planned a surprise party for our immediate family and our closest friends at Tavern on the Green in Central Park.
 
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 had such wonderful vendors that really supported us in building our dream wedding! When we went to our first appointment with Glamorous Events with my PowerPoint presentation of inspiration for the decor I wanted for all three events, instead of thinking I was crazy they executed it perfectly. Our DJ from BWD events helped us create the perfect playlist to balance Mike's favorite EDM songs with my 90's reggaeton requests all while simultaneously catering to our Punjabi and Jewish guests. Salwa Photography and Unique Visions captured all our favorite moments while making us feel so comfortable with cameras next to us in our most intimate wedding moments. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Mike and I had a #hinjewwedding, instead of blending our Hindu and Jewish wedding ceremonies we had both! So I went the traditional route for both ceremonies; I wore a red lengha for our Hindu ceremony on Friday and a white wedding dress for our Jewish wedding on Saturday.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Being engaged! Realizing we were planning OUR wedding, we truly felt the excitement as we made the wedding of our dreams come to life!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We are still so flattered by all of our guest's compliments - they loved our decor at the Sangeet - we went for traditional bright India - lots of colors, Mendhi stations, a rickshaw to take pictures with, a Bazaar full of bangles and purses. For the Hindu wedding - I could not hear more about how Mike's Baraat and how amazing he looked like an Indian groom on a horse and his dance moves! For the Jewish ceremony and reception our guests loved everything about our venue, Flowerfield, the grounds were stunning and they were blown away by their catering!
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Mike and I snuck out of our reception and took a moment to ourselves to walk outside and admire the party from afar and it was so special to take that minute for just us and to stand back and appreciate all of our friends and family on the dance floor celebrating us!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to enjoy being engaged - it all goes by so quickly, it is so easy to get stressed and caught up with the planning process. Mike and I planned specific moments during the process that was just for us - whether it was going to a vendor appointment alone, booking a spa day, or just going for a picnic in Central Park. It is important to remember you are not just planning a wedding, you are getting married!
 
Wait to see what we have prepared for your tomorrow!

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 went about planning our wedding by first looking for the perfect venue. My husband's family resides in Long Island, NY and my family resides in Albany, NY. We decided to have the wedding in Poughkeepsie, NY since it was the halfway point between our hometowns. The staff at the Villa Borghese were on board from the get-go. Nothing was too much to ask and they went above and beyond to accommodate our every whim. For the ceremony, I had always wanted to get married in a beautiful, old church with lots of architectural details. Both Sujith and I instantly fell in love with the Reformed Church of Poughkeepsie on sight. Because of the classic design of my dress and the old world style of the church, we decided on an English Garden feel for our ceremony. We had lots of white and blush pink florals accented with greenery throughout the space. For our evening reception, we decided to add black accents to bring more dramatic flair. House of Dipali was responsible for all of our florals and staging. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I remember watching the Royal Wedding in 2018 and falling in love with Meghan Markle's simple, yet elegant wedding gown. I knew right then that I wanted my wedding gown to be as equally timeless. After trying on many dresses, I came to the realization that I may need to go the custom route in order to achieve what I envisioned. I went to Xena's Bridal, a local boutique in my hometown, and I was able to customize an existing gown by Casablanca. My wedding gown ended up being everything I imagined and more!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests loved the Venetian Hour at the end of our wedding.  The Villa Borghese brought out eight tables of desserts from La Deliziosa Bakery and guests were provided with little boxes to take desserts home. There were also sparklers, an ice sculpture, and a Bananas Foster Flambé station. Villa Borghese also provided Gyros and fries for all of our guests as a late night snack on their way out.
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The highlight of the night was looking onto the dance floor and seeing all of our friends and family from all over the world crowded onto the dance floor. We felt so blessed and loved at that moment.
 
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.
My cousins and I have choreographed and danced together since we were very young and so I thought it only appropriate that we perform at the reception. All of my bridesmaids joined in and it was such a special part of the evening.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The wedding day is such a blur, but don't forget to take the time to enjoy it! It really does go by in the blink of an eye.

If you want to get more inspiration, visit us tomorrow. We have more for you!
