How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Riyaz at work back in 2014 when he joined. At first, we began talking casually at work and randomly on social media. Rumors at work began to escalate that Riyaz was interested in my co-worker and wanted to ask her out. I left work shortly after to get back to school full time and we lost contact. After 3 years, Riyaz messaged me randomly to see how things were at my end. We started talking again and he cleared the misunderstanding about asking my co-worker out. He was interested me instead but was hesitant to let me know. After talking for months, we started dating and that's when I knew he was the "one." He was so generous to my mom and instantly connected with my family. I was introduced to his family and his and I became really good friends. Everything was so smooth and seemed perfect.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We met often at "I love you a latte" for college work or just to hangout. One day he calls me randomly when I was in class to meet him for coffee. He never calls me or texts me when I am in class. I went to see him after my class and we had coffee together. Shortly after, we went out for lunch at Bob Steak House and that’s where he proposed. We had our lunch and spend rest of the day together.

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.
Riyaz and I wanted to get married in summer but were not sure about the dates. After switching between end of July to beginning of August, we decided to go for mid-July. Since summer usually are busy with weddings, we knew that we had to start early and reach out to all the vendors that we ever wanted for our wedding. Thanks to amazing family for helping us out in planning and organizing. We divided tasks to everyone in our families but ended up deciding what we liked and imagined.

Riyaz is a fan of PhotoKumar and I heard great things about Wedding Decor by Faiza for our wedding decorations so we decided to reach them and finalize it. Next, we focused on FOOD. Yes, believe it or not it’s very important. lol Afterwards, we focused on the details. I absolutely loved Ghalia's makeup and I have been following her for a while. So, I reached out to her and luckily the dates were available. I also loved Fiyona's mehndi and by luck she was also available.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had no idea what color I wanted for my wedding outfit but I definitely didn't wanted red. When I went to Pakistan with my family to shop for wedding outfits, I tried out many outfits with different color options but nothing came satisfactory. And then my designer, Salma Dawood said why don't have something pink and peachesh. It's not too common and also colors like this are preferred these days. When she showed me the color, I felt in love and decided to go for that. I picked my wedding dress embroidery from three different outfits. The final piece came out amazing and just as I imagined. My Nikkah sari from Panache by Sharmeen was amazing. I didn't imagine my Nikkah Sari to be White. Everyone wears white and I wanted to wear something unique with unique color combination. As soon as I saw this sari, I couldn't stop myself from purchasing it. Riyaz also ended up buying his Sherwani from Sharmeen.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I absolutely loved planning the little details of the wedding. My niece and nephews were so excited to dress up and dance for their Ani's wedding. I enjoyed planning little things for pithi and Sangeet with my mom and bhabi. I also enjoyed rehearsing on all the performances Riyaz and I planned. We selected songs, rehearsed on it and performed at our Sangeet and Reception.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guest really enjoyed the ambiance of the reception day. Since we had Tabla and Sitar players at our wedding, it made it very special for guests to enjoy something different. The cake by Sally Bakes me Pretty, made amazing Tres Leche and Nutella cake. Very satisfactory to our taste buds.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The special moment that replays in my mind is the video Riyaz and I made for our families to express our feelings. Riyaz and My father passed away years ago and we wanted to remember them and appreciate them on our special day. The videos we made not only remembered our fathers but also express our love and appreciation for our families. My mom and my brothers cried after watching the video and it also put me to tears also

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 decorated our house full of lights and flowers. Some days after the planning and decorating we would drop everything, put the music on, and just dance.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Just be relax. I know weddings can be really stressful but just relax. Plan a head of time, whether it’s a wedding season or not but just plan a head of time. Planning ahead will give you peace of mind that your vendors have the dates locked.

Another advice to enjoy your day. Sometimes, we get so carried away with the timings and details that we don't even enjoy our own day. It’s your day and you planned it for a while, so Just enjoy it and let everything happen on its own.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I am mehandi lover and very picky when it comes to my Bridal Mehandi. I loved Fiyona's work and she designed it the way I imaged it. I was not too picky about my jewelry but Tilak Jewelers had the perfect piece to compliment my Nikkah Sari.

Riyaz and I wanted a reception venue that is closer to our place. We loved the venue at Hilton Dallas/Plano Granite Park, so we decided to go with that.

I loved the way our wedding turned out. Everything happened the way we planned out and it would've never been possible without the help and support from our families.

That is all for today, ladies. But don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Christy (Chris) and I met on dil mil. I am a Director of Nursing and he is NYPD, He definiteIy made my heart skip and a beat and I cuffed his heart. I was never a person found of matrimonial sites I grew up thinking I would find the love of my life in some Bollywood type of way. However God had his own plans. Our first date, he flew down for he is from NY and I am from Dallas, Our first date started out going to church together it was then I knew he was the one, for he said to me " I want to pray to god for bringing you into my life and I want to pray that he makes my dreams a reality by making you mine forever". Our love and foundation was built on our faith.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Throughout our relationship of being together for a year we saw each other every month except for December 2019 and January 2020 due to both our work schedules, I had asked him if at least for Valentines day we could be together he kept telling me he couldn't get off and we would try for March. Little did I know he was planning to propose with the help of my brother Tony. My brother convinced me that he had a work dinner to go to at the Dallas Reunion Tower Restaurant and asked if I could go with him, We got dressed since he said semi formal, and as I walked out of the elevator i was greeted by a trail of candles and rose petals with Christy waiting for me and I burst into tears and ran into his arms after he embraced me he got down on one knee and proposed, When I turned around my whole family was there to celebrate the most magical day ever. Chris and my brother decorated the area with roses, candles, and pictures of us over the year framed. Beyond blessed.

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 always dreamt of my wedding being a huge elaborate celebration, but due to COVID plans had to be completely changed and downsized. Our first meeting with our wedding planners Dallas1Events, I was very emotional and disheartened but our wedding planners and parents were such positive spirits and their outlook was it doesn't matter the size everything I dreamt of they wanted to make come true. Our Venue was at our St. Thomas Church Hall, Hair and Makeup I chose the wonderful Jtorry, My outfits as I always dreamed were made by Ruby Bhandari of Silk Threads. Our Décor theme was peacocks and my favorite colors of royal blue, diamonds, and crystals. Two days before our wedding we had a mylanchi/mehndi night as well as chandam charth for my husband it was combined shared with our most initmate friends and family. Our décor theme came to life with the wonderful Ensign décor team.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My wedding dress was elegant and classic which I found at mockingbird bridal which was a very special moment for I went with my mom and dad who always made me feel like a princess so it was only fitting to have them by my side to pick my wedding dress. Besides who else would be brutally honest! My Bridal lengha was modern and in my favorite royal blue color. I had told Ruby to make me look faboulous and that she did she made me feel like a Bollywood Barbie!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was the finite details such as the cake design of two peacocks kissing, to the chariot for my mylanchi entrance carried in by my brother and cousin brothers, as well as the rolls Royce exit. These details embodied the elegance and extravagance we wanted to portray.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests enjoyed the décor, the rolls Royce exit, and the music accompanied by dancing on a cloud by the wonderful Dj Riz Entertainment and Dj Freddy Mac who truly made our first dance as well as my father daughter dance absolutely magical.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that replays in my mind was at the church when we were announced as Mr. and Mrs. George and seeing the smile and tears of joy from our friends and family was truly heart warming and special.

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.
Our special moments were captured beautifully for years to come by the wonderful Starline Studios Photography, and videography by united media live. We had special group dance by Team Ground Zero,
Flowers and Decor were wonderfully created by Ensign Décor. Wedding Planners Dallas1Events who we would recommend time and time again for they alleviated many stresses and took care of everything. They truly catered to our needs, wants, and dreams.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My words of wisdom for Brides to be is no matter the obstacles, downfalls, make your dreams come true in any manner possible. As long as you have your soul mate to hold your hand and tell you everything will work itself out its you against the world. When you feel nervous or anxious always pray and god will find a way. Remember his plans are always on time and always right.

We have more to come, so make sure to join us tomorrow for a new love story!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I first met Shibin about 10 years ago when he came to my church to invite us for a conference they were hosting. As a typical teenager, I wondered who this cute guy is and figured I wouldn’t see him after that day. Fast forward to 3 years later, both of us were serving in the military. We added each other on Facebook and realized we actually crossed paths awhile ago. And the rest was history. At first when we started to talk to each other, we were in two different time zones and the way he tried to make time for us which meant staying up way past his bed time or waking up super early to talk to me and I just knew that I couldn't let him get away for the "second" time!

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.
Shibin is from New York and I am from Pennsylvania. So, we both wanted to pick a place that's in between and we ended up picking our reception venue in New Jersey. Therefore, we picked our vendors based in Jersey Area except for our wedding planner Anisha (Our Day Events) who is from Maryland. She attended all our vendor meetings with us. If she was not available to meet with us in person, she made sure someone from her team attended while Anisha attended the meeting virtually.

We picked The Venetian as our reception venue and Nora (venue rep) was really helpful in answering all our questions and accommodating all of our needs prior to signing the contract with them. Then we moved on to picking our decor. We were really glad to work with AWD and her team. we went in for our initial meeting with some bits and pieces of our vision. Benish knew exactly what we wanted and she showed us her previous works based on it and we were happy to leave the meeting with a solid plan in place. We didn't had to think twice when it came to our photo/video Team: Live Picture Studios (LPS). I saw their work about 5-6 years ago and I just knew I will be picking them for the wedding. We chose Premier Events as our Entertainment/ DJ through family recommendation. I chose Dipal as my MUA. She was very friendly throughout our conversations she explained everything in a detailed way. We did a hair/makeup trial and things went well and my skin took it well as it can be sensitive at times.

We were all set with our vendors and ready to go for our May 2020 wedding until we were faced with the challenge of rescheduling it to July initially. Anisha was our Angel at the time and emailed all of our vendors and got their availabilities. As we got closer to the July date we were still uncomfortable with high Covid numbers and were worried about the safety of our family and friends. Therefore we had to find another date in September. It was the same process all over again but this time we decided to move our reception to 2021. That also meant making this wedding as intimate as possible so, we had to move our ceremony location to Staten Island, NY. LPS was really accommodating to our last minute changes and gave us suggestions to help with timings. Benish helped us with "replanning" our decorations as we had to scale everything down from our initial plan. After multiple meetings with Anisha and Benish, they really brought my simple and elegant vision to life. Without Anisha, our wedding day would have been chaotic because as the plans changed, Anisha had to make changes to our wedding day timeline accordingly and it was no joke. Shibin and I are really thankful for all the vendors that we had the chance to work with as everyone played an important role in for September 12, 2020 wedding to bring to life.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I really enjoyed visiting our venue site and other vendors in person with my fiancé. As things are done virtually now, we might have taken those moments for granted. Oh! I would also say cake tasting was the " cherry on top " to our planning process just because who doesn't like free cakes. Hahah!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Walking down the aisle was such an emotional moment for me. I had my parents walk me down the aisle. The church was filled with all kinds of emotions. As I was walking down, all I could see was tears coming down from the family members, my bridesmaid and Shibin. After seeing everyone's emotions, I couldn't hold back my tears and the moment was just beyond special.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
As each story is unique, enjoy the moment with your fiancé. Take one day at a time. Please don't hesitate to ask for help from family and friends. Find time to treat yourself with something you love. Wedding planning can be stressful but It's okay to take a day or two off from planning and give yourself a break. The yearlong planning will come to an end in no time. Therefore, work our marriage and learn more about each other as you start your new journey together.

Ladies, don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!
