How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I had just graduated nursing school, with a world of opportunities at my feet. My sister, Srivi, and I decided to go down to California for a few days to kick back, relax, and celebrate this huge accomplishment. We stayed with some friends and while we were there met various people but didn't think much of it. It was a pretty uneventful trip, and we joked about how crazy it would be if we met the person we were going to marry on that trip. We both thought there was absolutely no way that would happen. Oh how wrong were we. The last day we were there, we met Madhav's parents through some mutual family friends. Soon enough, Madhav and I were introduced and started talking and the rest, as they say, is history.  A few texts every so often turned to daily phone calls and FaceTime dates. Some words exchanged here and there quickly turned into conversations about life, our goals and dreams, plans for the future, our hardships and struggles, our successes, and what makes us who we are today. Every minute I spent with him felt natural and real, like we had known each other our entire lives. We quickly became best friends and realized that we couldn't spend our lives without each other.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As much as I hate surprises, one thing I have dreamed about since I was 10 years old was my dream surprise proposal. Madhav was planning to come into town to visit, and we had made plans to go see Hamilton in Detroit, since it was one of his all time favorite musicals. What I didn't know was that he was planning to propose that night, and that his sister, brother-in-law, and parents all flew on the same red eye flight as him to be there for the surprise happening later that evening and hid in the airport until after I picked him up to leave. Madhav had made a huge deal about the show, saying we should go full out with getting dressed up, having my hair and nails done, and just getting all decked out for the show. I thought it was fun how excited he was about the whole thing and went along with it because who doesn't love getting dressed up?  We got to the venue and were taking pictures and having a great time. While the show was amazing, Madhav was acting super strange throughout. He would scoot me to walk in front of him so I wasn't directly beside him and wouldn't look at or talk to me during the course of the show. Naturally, I just assumed he was just so mesmerized by the show, even when he was shady and left me alone for a few after the show, which I later found out was to make some calls. What I also didn't realize was that during the show, my sisters and family had ventured to a beautiful local park where they created an ideal scene for the perfect proposal. Usually I like to know the entire plan of the day and was getting antsy that I didn't know what we were doing after the show, but I was attempting to be less uptight about plans and trying to play it cool, even when he randomly suggested that we go to "the park you always went to as a kid" to take some pictures. When we got to the park, I started telling Madhav tons of stories from my childhood that happened in that park, completely oblivious to the fact that he was very clearly not paying attention. As we were walking, he randomly pointed to a tree, which i soon realized was covered in lights and pictures of us throughout our lives. Immediately, I knew what was happening. Madhav made a nice speech and popped the question with a stealthy photographer capturing the whole thing. All parents and siblings joined in to finish the surprise and capped off this special day with a delicious dinner!

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.
Before COVID-19 hit, I had pretty much our entire wedding planned by the beginning of 2020. I love weddings and knew pretty much exactly what I wanted my wedding to look like and which vendors I wanted to go with well before Madhav even proposed. Because it was important to us to have a pretty traditional and religious wedding ceremony, both of our parents were able to help communicate with the temple facilities and the priest in making that all possible. I had been following the Indian wedding circuit in the Metro Detroit area for a while now so when it came time to book hair, make up, photography, etc., I basically knew exactly who and what I wanted so I had most of our vendors booked within a few weeks after we got engaged. Booking all these venues and vendors early on in the wedding planning process eased a lot of my stress as we moved forward. All our vendors were incredible in being flexible and helping us make our day incredible, especially with the date changes and uncertainty that COVID-19 brought with it. If it weren't for these amazing vendors, our day wouldn't have been as wonderful as it was.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We chose to have a traditional Hindu Telugu wedding ceremony, and so I relied on my parents and in- laws a lot for help picking the clothes I would wear for all the traditional ceremonies. My mom and I met my in-laws in India, and we traveled to Kanchi, where I ended up picking the sari I wore for the first half of our wedding. Before COVID, I had found the most beautiful purple lengha in Hyderabad but it was too grand for the backyard reception we ended up having because of COVID. So I decided to wear this elegant periwinkle chikaankari lengha that I got stitched in India with the help of my cousin.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Although COVID-19 significantly altered our original plans of big venues with large crowds, with the amazing help of our closest family and friends, we were able to share something really special. Being able to turn my childhood home into a dream backyard wedding venue was incredible. We shared so many laughs and DIY moments together, and these are memories I'll carry with me for the rest of my life.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We recognize that any sort of gathering in 2020 raises eyebrows and I think the one thing that guests loved about our wedding was the care we took in making sure everyone was able to stay safe. We had a temperature screening station where all guests had to be screened for COVID symptoms prior to entering the events, provided masks for all our guests, had hand sanitizer stations everywhere, placed chairs at safe distances from each other, and had CDC guidelines posted throughout the wedding. Also, because of COVID-19 guidelines, we had a more intimate, outdoor wedding that guests said they loved.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The two moments that still constantly play in my head are when I was carried to the madapam by my maternal uncles while sitting in a basket. It was such a cool feeling being surrounded by so many of my favorite people who I had known my entire life. The other moment was when the curtain separating Madhav and I was lifted and we got to see each other for the first time during the muhurtham. It was so surreal seeing each other and knowing we were going to be together forever.

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.
The theme for all the wedding events was simple but elegant, as all the events took place at my parents home. For the pre-wedding ceremonies that were more religious based, we tried to keep the decoration and outfits as traditional as possible. The decorations for our backyard reception were simple, with fairy lights illuminating all the trees and connecting the different tents spread out together. While our mandapam was rented and assembled by the kind folks at Marigold Weddings, the remainder of the decorations were a labor of love from close family and friends.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
In a world where everything is changing, sometimes you don't need a huge wedding with hundreds of people for your event to be special. Find the things that are most important to you and your fiance and focus your energy on that. No matter what, the day will always be special because it's your day. So try to find joy in all aspects of making it happen.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Because COVID-19 prevented so many of our closest friends and families from attending, we livestreamed all our events so those who were not able to attend in person could be a part of our celebrations from the safety of their homes.

That is all for today, darlings. See you tomorrow for more inspiring details to start planning your dream wedding!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Falgoon and I met on DilMil! My assistant Dipali made my account and was swiping away. Of course we came across Falgoon profile picture with him wearing a Power Ranger shirt with a double rainbow and I couldn't resist myself and swiped right.
Falgoon planned this epic first date. The only down fall was he was in Tampa and I lived in Orlando so it was a drive for me plus I had to figure out how to tell my mom I was driving 2 hours to meet someone I met off an app. Eventually my mom caved and agreed to cover for me however I got cold feet and ended up 4 hours late. Falgoon had to rearrange our plans and the date didn't start off well. However after an hour together things started to flow. At the end of our first date I knew he was the one.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Falgoon being Gujarati and me being Guyanese, his parents at first were not a fan of the idea of us being together. We spent a year fighting all the obstacles sent our way and proving that we would fight for our love at no means; merging our cultures, beliefs and becoming one. We promised each other we wouldn’t give up on each other, and we never did. I would always compare our love story to a Bollywood movie which I would make Falgoon watch a lot of. We had our flights book to NYC, for my aunt’s baby shower, little did I know Falgoon had his plans. On October 20th,2018, Falgoon made a spa appointment for me to get my hair and nails done. He told me we were going to have a nice dinner and a stroll through the park so we could get a skyline picture. Once we both were dressed, we headed out. We had some appetizers and then Falgoon insisted on walk through Gantry Park during sunset. Little did I know, this was the moment. With the thought of my love for Bollywood, Falgoon incorporated a song from every Bollywood movie we watched into his proposal. Each spot had one of his cousins and best friends with a rose and a picture of us. At each stop they asked me “Will you accept this rose?” At the very end, we ended up at the skyline, stepped into a rose petal shaped heart with candles. Falgoon of course wrote a beautiful speech, we giggle at moments thinking back to the ups and downs for the fight of love and then asked me to be his wife. We ended the night with dinner at Tony's Di Napoli in Manhattan and dancing at Magic Hour and Moxy.
 
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.
- Wedding Planner, Decorator
We originally thought we could handle planning the wedding all by ourself.  We finally decided a few months in that we needed a wedding planner and we contacted Preeti from PreetiExclusive Events and she was a lifesaver. She made wedding planner fun, kept us on track and help us balance out our vision. Falgoon loved the bigger and better while I wanted a more simple, elegant look. With Preeti's help, we found Liz who capture both our visions for decor. Falgoon wanted the lotus shaped mandap and Liz bought it to life while keeping in mind my simple and elegant vision. We just didn't find a wedding planner but a friend.
 
- Hair & Makeup
My make up, hair and mehndi was all done by Salma and her team from Hennaallure. I used Salma for our engagement puja and she was amazing. So when time came for my wedding look, I knew Salma was the way to go. She kept me calm during my getting ready time, shared advise and was a joy to be around.
 
- BnB Photography & Digital Dreams Studio
Words can not explain how amazing Amar is. His pictures are a work of art. Amar first did our engagement shoot and once we saw the pictures, it looked like we belonged in a magazine. During the wedding, Amar and his team capture everything so beautifully. Ashok and Amar work great together. They feed off each other while capturing some amazing moments. We are super excited to see our wedding video that Ashok and his team capture during our wedding.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
- Ceremony
My wedding lengha was selected because of the horses. My grandfather passed away 3.5 years before my wedding and he was my world. He was my biggest dance fan and favorite person. Growing up, the Derby and horse racing was a huge part of my life. Derby day was a holiday for us.  So when I laid eyes on the lengha on an IG post, I know I had to have it. My in laws went to India for wedding shopping and during their time there, my sister in law found the same exact outfit I showed her a picture of. It was just as perfect as I could remember. As I walked down the aisle, a piece of my grandfather walked down with me.
 
- Sajda by Suman
My reception outfit was bought in New Jersey from Sajda by Suman. I was turned between a traditional white dress or during a traditional Indian look. When I told Nishi my thoughts, she walked into the back and bought out a lengha which I fell in love with it.
 
- Reception
My in laws searched for a reception outfit in India for me but there was no luck. I wanted an outfit that would make my future husband light up but make my parent happy too. I was torn between a traditional white dress like my mother wore for her wedding or a lengha. We knew my future husband would be wearing a James Bond inspired look in memory of his Dada so I needed something perfect to go with it. My reception outfit was bought in New Jersey from Sajda by Suman. When we first went to Sajda, I looked through their showroom and couldn't find anything that i loved. Nishi asked me what i was looking for. When I told Nishi my thoughts, she walked into the back and bought out a lengha which I fell in love with it.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look. I wanted the first time Falgoon and I saw each other as groom and bride to be inmate so we sneak and did a first look. I remember having the same butterflies, I had the first time I saw Falgoon standing there.
 
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.
- Bridesmaids' Dance
My bridesmaid are my soca sisters. You put on some chutney or soca music and they get down. However a choreographed bollywood dance is not their thing. So 20 minutes before the reception, they learned their dance and did a great job. Of course they had to dance Woh Mere Jijaji to welcome their new Jiji into the family.
 
- Patel's Cousin Dance
Falgoon's cousins wedding dance performances are always amazing. They take the time to choreograph them, stay up late and practicing. So when they put on a musical skit on how Falgoon and I met, it was the most beautiful thing I have seen.
 
- Bride's Solo
During my dance during my reception, I made sure each song had a meaning to our love story. As a little girl I dance around the house with my grandfather to Dafli Wale. My grandfather use to tell me, love is like the beat of a drum, once you find it, you dance without thinking. Of course I wanted the most perfect dance so I asked Dipali from dpaulymoves to help me choreographed it. During my dance, the moment my eyes met Falgoon's, I forgot everything and danced to my own drum. So once Dafli Wale Dafli Baja started, I dance the same steps I dance around the house with my grandfather for my husband. It was the most priceless and sentimental thing I could think to do to show my love. Of course my husband would be bhangra dancer, so I had to pull out a few bhangra steps while dancing towards him to Nikle Curran; pulling him up to open the dance floor.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
You will always received advise and suggestions; don't feel obligated to take it if it doesn't make you happy.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndi-Make it your own!
In my mehndi I included a few things to describe Falgoon before he could find his name
Lexus symbol- Falgoon love his Lexi.
Taco Bell symbol- the first time I ever ate TB was with Falgoon. After the first time, I fell in love with TB.
007- Falgoon is a huge James bond fan
Ganesha Bhagwan- Ganesha Bhagwan has guided us through our love story. He removed all our obstacles and gave us the strength to continue our journey

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We first met in DC after Keyur had moved back to California to start a new job.  He came for the weekend.  After having been on so many dates, he was the only one I felt I could connect with and have great conversation with.  on our first date, he brought me White chocolate (he knew me so well).  We both loved sports so we had out first date at "Penn Commons" in DC where I lived and worked.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As we were long distance, we often met in LA or DC.  He chose our proposal place perfect - planned a meal at Maydan.  It was cold out and we wanted to catch a little bit of the Lakers game - so we decided to walk to a bar and then head to dinner.  On our walk, he purposely chose to walk past our first date dessert place - Dolci Gelati on 8th Street.  I had no idea until he got down on one knee and popped the question.
 
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 started with makeup artist as I knew they booked up quickly.  I then started going to different venues.  I really love nature and greenery so decided that was the direction I wanted to go. We also did a lot of wine tasting together so we loved the colors of the Vineards.  It was not hard to plan with the help of family and friends who had been through the process already.  Photography was another big thing for me, and I did a lot of research to find the right group.  Its really important to prioritize what is important to you and start booking because the vendors you like tend to book up quickly.  Keeping to a budget was also a priority so keeping that in mind, I planned to spend the most on makeup and photography.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
It took me a very long to find the perfect bridal lengha.  I shopped around and was not happy until I came across Nazarana's selection.  I've always wanted red and had a specific design in mind.  When I put on the outfit, I knew immediately it was the one!  The team at Nazarana was great and helped me design a blouse that was prefect for me.  When I went back for my fitting, they even tightened it that day because i had to drive over 3 hours to get there. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of planning was picking things I liked - décor, dresses and knowing I was going to marry Keyur. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I feel there were many aspects the wedding my guest loved including the pre wedding functions.  The food was great, the live violinist was excellent and the décor was beyond beautiful thanks to Sachi and team at Partyland.  Everyone loved the décor, I heard someone refer to the décor as "Crazy Rich Asians".  The DJ kept that party going, we have Gulab Jamun cheesecake was delicious as well as the Custom rustic cake from "Charm City Cakes".  It was all around fun for all ages and for family and friends alike.   
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When I was on stage and they lowered Keyur's "vail", I still remember looking at him and smiling the biggest smile - I was about to marry my best friend! 
 
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.
The Mehdni was at our home as well as the Puja, we had home made food from my family which was to excellent.  The Garba was at the main venue and it was great to have my family participate in countless dance practices to get our routine together. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Prioritze!  and Remember ENJOY your day.  My husband and I had so much fun the day of our wedding and it really makes a difference.  I never had a moment of stress or sadness during my wedding - its only little things.  You want to be that bride that is happy on her wedding day - besides it only happens once.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Mehndi with Heena was great - she was so accommodating and really did a great job with incorporating our relationship in to my design. 
Cake was so yummy- check out "charm city cakes" if you are in the Maryland area - they have great flavors and so moist!
Makeup/hair - done for my mom and two sisters as well as me through Make-up by Ana.  I loved Nancy and Uzma.  Great job for everyone!

We hope you have a great week! See you tomorrow!
