How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?

Punit and I met almost 10 years before getting married. We met in undergrad at Texas A&M. We had inadvertently met a few times before but became closer to our Molecular Biology class. It ended up being a meant to be a relationship. We clicked instantly, we had tons of mutual friends who helped push our relationship forward and our parents even had mutual friends. We’ve survived long-distance through Dental and Medical school, through multiple countries and states, but when we came back together it was still pure magic!

 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

The proposal was the shock of my life and definitely not because we weren’t together long enough. Through grad school, we had always known we wanted to wait until we were finished and together again. Once we graduated I kept expecting the proposal to come; however, this guy was still adamant that we needed to be “more settled.” This continued on and I almost started believing it myself. We had a trip to Italy planned and I still wasn’t expecting it. Even the night before the proposal he said that it wasn’t time. The next day we went to Cinque Terre and on finding the perfect isolated, waterside location he got down on one knee and proposed. My reaction was an instant shock. I laughed thinking it was a joke. My first words were “are you serious?” It was basically years of inception making me believe this was never going to happen. But the proposal was absolutely amazing in the most gorgeous location and more than I would have ever imagined.

 

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.

DJ Riz: We are so glad we had DJ Riz and Freddy on our team! They did an amazing job of keeping the energy high and created a fun, interactive reception and baraat atmosphere. Everyone had a great time at the wedding and we continue to get compliments on how amazing the music was. Everyone was on the dance floor all night!

 

Jianna Jewelers: They have been amazing throughout our entire engagement and wedding process for our jewelry needs. They helped my husband design my custom engagement ring and wedding bands. They also helped us design the stunning diamond necklace my mother in law gave me to wear for our reception. They can customize and make any vision come to life. They are so easy to work with and have amazing quality pieces.

 

Divine Décor of Dallas: We worked with Ketan Mistry and he was incredible to work with. Ketan was very aware of our vision and was able to make everything we wanted come together beautifully. He paid attention to detail and made every event look extremely beautiful. He has a large selection in his warehouse to choose from, everything from traditional to modern.

 

Vek Photography: We are so glad we chose VEK for our events. He is so easy to work with and has amazing quality photography. He captures special moments of not only the wedding party but also family and friends attending the event. He has a unique vision that will blow your mind away. Definitely happy with our photos.

 

Epique Cinema: We absolutely love our wedding highlight video! Epique’s videographers were so easy to work with. They made us feel comfortable and so much less awkward while they were recording. Their videos are lively, colorful, and really take you back in time.

 

Hair & Makeup: Vanita Patel did my hair and makeup and was absolutely amazing to work with. She did a great job of creating a different look with each outfit. Vanita is great at improvising on anything you need. She is a one stop shop for makeup, hair and draping for multiple people if needed. 

 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

We were unable to travel to India so we had to shop in the States which was extremely daunting. I had heard stories about the difficulties of finding the perfect outfits. My family and I skeptically started our day expecting to have a long and exhausting day. Luckily, I found all of my outfits at the very first store we went to. Almas aunty of Almas Tejani Desi Couture and her team were so wonderfully helpful. I was looking for a non-traditional plum outfit and the very first outfit I tried on ended up being the perfect one for me. Some outfits we bought ready-made and some she was able to customize for us. We received everything on time and she was great about last-minute adjustments.

 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Our guests have had so many wonderful things to say about the wedding. We’ve heard countless compliments about the décor, organization and especially the food! We had a self-made dessert bar and a midnight Taco Bell bar after the reception that was a huge hit.

 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

One of my favorite moments was right before the reception. We were waiting in the hallway for everyone to settle in before the DJ announced us. It was taking a while and we just happened to notice the photo booth that was set up. We took some time to take a few goofy pictures and just hang out. It was really nice to have these few moments alone in the midst of all the festivities.

 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Weddings are super stressful in general, try and do whatever YOU need to keep as calm as possible. Big Indian weddings are bound to have some issues. Just remember that the people that are really there for you will try and keep things as calm and drama-free for you as possible. There are always little things that don’t go as expected, try not to let little obstacles get you down. Shake it off and go with the flow so you can truly enjoy your time!

More weddings await! Keep updated!
