How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Fahim at my cousin's (his best friend) birthday party. We became really good friends since were both sarcastic and fun and before we knew it, we started dating.

I knew he was "the one" because of how thoughtful he was towards not just me but my family. My father passed away in 2017, and he was and continues to be a rock that holds my family together. He is extremely fun and can literally talk to anyone!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Fahim and I dated for 4 and a half years before he proposed on December 23, 2020.

Fahim told me that he was taking me to take Christmas pictures in our Looney Tunes sweaters to send out to our friends and family. He took me to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens, which we both loved visiting because of how calm the environment is. He took me to the gazebo and proposed! My friends and family were hidden behind. They came out and surprised me! It was the best Christmas present!

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.
Fahim and I planned our wedding with the help of our amazing friends, family, and bridal party. We started by shopping for venues and played around with a few dates. After about a month, we decided to get married in January 2020 and finalized the date shortly after.

Next, we started looking for photo, video, and decor. We heard about Blink Films and Images from Houston and went to visit their office. We realized that we could get all our needs taken care of with them. The photo and video process was seamless. The Blink Team was there early and prepared for all of our events and very professional. When it came to decor, we didn't have a theme in mind to be honest. My lengha was maroon and fahim's outfit was pink (the accent color to my lengha), so I had no clue what I wanted! I trusted AV at Blink with the colors and design of my reception and was not disappointed with the product! I still remember walking into the venue when it was fully decorated in awe because of how beautiful everything looked! They are wonderful and exceptional at what they do!

In terms of hair and makeup, my sisters always raved about Jenny Torry and how amazing her brides look! I did a bridal trial with her, and decided shortly after that she was the one I was going with! She did an incredible job!

When it came to cake, we had tasted a delicious cake at my coworker's wedding that we absolutely LOVED. We found out that we could customize the cake and the flavors were so yummy! Cake Daddy exceeded our expectations and gave us a phenomenal product!

I went to India with my mom and sisters to shop for my wedding weekend outfits in the summer of 2019. We ended up picking all of our outfits within 2 weeks!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my nikkah, I did not want to go with the traditional light sari that everyone wears. I am just not a sari gal! I decided to go with a champagne colored long gown instead with a dupatta on my head.

When it came to my reception lengha, this one took me by complete surprise. Since I was traveling to India, I had a very open mind about my outfit, but I definitely knew i wanted a navy/dark blue outfit. When I started trying on lenghas that were blue, my family and I soon realized the "pop" wasn't there. The salesman told me to try on a red lengha to "humor him" and we all turned out loving the color! I soon realized why wedding lenghas are red! We went with a velvet maroon lengha, which I absolutely loved!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Overall as most brides know, the planning process is incredibly STRESSFUL. I think for me, it was very very important to take breaks and learn to enjoy the process! Once the big things were decided, putting together the little details was definitely my favorite part of the process. Even though sometimes details don't seem that important, it makes an astronomical difference on the day of when you see everything come together!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I feel like most of our guests absolutely LOVED our decor and how everything fit together so well! We also tried to keep things on schedule and had fun activities planned for our guests for each event we threw.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Yes. My sisters put together a slideshow to honor my father during the reception, which put me to tears, but it was incredible. It made me feel like he was there with me and was smiling from above.

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 family and friends came together to create a skit for our reception, which was exceptional! We also incorporated events such as a bouquet toss and a non-traditional first dance. The reception also encompassed plenty of time for dancing, food, and fun and ended with sparklers outside!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
1. BREATHE. Indian wedding planning can be daunting and trust me, you will be okay! Just take things one step at a time and try your best to breathe through it!
2. Do all the big things first and then fill in the details later. I know this seems obvious, but when you're working on planning, you can get carried away with the details!
3. Silverware is not always included in the package. Make sure to ask the venue to make sure it is!
4. Give yourself at LEAST 8-10 months to plan out the wedding weekend.
5. A week before the wedding, let everything go and relax! You've done all you can by this point, so now it's time for you to take a load off and ENJOY yourself!
6. If you can, move in all your clothes and furniture to your new home BEFORE your wedding weekend. Trust me, you'll thank us later.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I was very open throughout my process since I wasn't like other brides who had their dream wedding planned. Slowly, but surely things came together and ended up being extremely fun and memorable!

Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more. Same place, same time!

Commack, NY Pakistani Fusion Wedding by I Alam Photography

Good morning, Maharanis! If you were looking for inspiration, you've come to the right place because Nayaab & Usama's wedding has all the things we love and so much more. So get ready to enjoy it! The greenery and exclusive architecture of the Hamlet Golf and Country Club, combined with the beautiful decor crafted by House of Dipali, created the perfect setting for these lovebirds to say "I do" in the company of their family and friends. But all of this would not have been this possible without the perfect planning and execution by Karma Events. For the wedding ceremony, Nayaab looked ravishing dressed in her trendy lengha after being glamorized by Preeti Artistry and Beauty by Fiza. The nude makeup and the classy hairstyle praised this Maharani's beauty and gave her a dreamy look that we loved so much! After the ceremony, there was an epic reception party enlivened by Powerhouse DJs. They played the perfect beats, making everyone dance the night away. And all we have to say is that we are happy beyond words that Nayaab & Usama found each other as you can tell that they are a match made in heaven.

Hanover, NJ Indian Wedding by Events Capture

Good morning, ladies! We are glad you could join us today because we were dying to share Parina & Pathik's wedding celebration with all of you. So let's not keep on waiting, and get ready to enjoy it! Right from the bat, we have to say that this will take your breath away as it is another demonstration that love always wins! When Parina & Pathik's started planning their wedding, they didn't know that nature had a big surprise for them, and COVID emerged soon before their big day. Still, they decided not to back down and carried on with their wedding celebration, making the necessary arrangements to comply with all the safety measurements. To make that happen, they decided to bring Events By Srishti on board, as their expertise in planning dreamy weddings is out of the question. And this time it was no exception! The final result: A lovely and intimate wedding ceremony hosted at the Hanover Marriott! Anywhere you looked, there was beauty all over the place, thanks to the fabulous decor crafted by Florista Decor. Still, nothing compared to the ravishing look of our gorgeous Maharani Parina. She trusted her beauty needs to Arfana Jasar, who delivered nothing but perfection in the form of an exquisite makeup and hairstyle that still has us sighing. After the ceremony, all guests celebrated along with the newlyweds while taking a bite at the delicious food from Tacowala, and Pizza Vita, right before having ice cream from Ben and Jerry's Truck. Having different food trucks helped with social distancing and gave different food options to choose from, and we are sure all guests were more than happy about it! If you want to take a closer look at this lovely celebration, don't miss the awe-inspiring shots by Events Capture in today's full gallery. You will love it so much!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Pathik and I met online via DilMil. He lived in Boston and I was in Jersey. The beginning stages of our relationship was rough, his work required him to travel internationally 3 weeks out of a month and I knew he was the one when he would find a way to meet with me in his one week back in the states. That’s how I knew he was the one - he was willing to make plans with me during his small time frame back at home and that showed me that he made spending time with one another a priority.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Pathik proposed to me about 2 weeks before he decided to move to New Jersey to be closer to me. He proposed to me on a very windy day in battery park, and made me the happiest woman around. I was so shocked that even though I knew that the ring goes on the left hand - I was so surprised and shocked that rather than gracefully handing him my hand I gave him both hands to let him choose where the ring should go. Turns out I wore my ring on the wrong finger and didn’t realize it until I FaceTimed my sister to tell her the news and she called me out on it.

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 out wedding started over a year before the actual wedding date. We had all of our vendors selected by November 2019. But in February 2020 covid hit and changed so many aspects of the plan. We went from having 4 events at 2 venues with 500 people each to having only the wedding with 90 of our closest family and friends.

The wedding was nothing like what we planned but it was everything we truely wanted. Shrishti our wedding coordinator helped keep us calm and figure out how to work with the constantly changing regulations and we couldn’t be more greatful.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India to do my shopping, and unlike most brides experiences. I fell in love with my outfit within the first 12 hours of being in India. I bought the dress from the first store I went to and fell in love with it.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
There was no joy in our wedding planning all of the fun things that were to take place were canceled due to covid. We never had a food tasting as we didn’t have a typical caterer. We opted to go for a safe way of getting food to our guests with food trucks. We didn’t get to have a cake tasting as we felt having a large Cake that would have to be cut and served could be risky and we wanted to try and be as safe as possible so we had a Ben and Jerry food truck take the place of the wedding cake. We didn’t want to risk catching or transmitting anything to the makeup artist and I put all my trust in her the day of and let Arfana Jasar work her magic.

The most enjoyable part for us was just being able to have the wedding given the climate of the world with corona virus.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests still rave about the precautions we took at our wedding. We provided all of our guests with custom face masks, we set up all of the seats to be set up 6’ apart, we made sure that we avoided indoor dining as that is risky and had food trucks set up outside so it was a safer method for all of the guests to enjoy the food. The pizza vita, tacowala, and Ben and Jerry’s food trucks did a great job and everyone loved it!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Given the risk Covid put on everyone present at the wedding pathik and I had to make the difficult decision to cancel so many events. The hardest one to cancel was the reception. I had spent so much time planning dances and making song selections for entrances and something I dreamed about, the first dance. Before the vidai/farewell I was able to have my first dance and that had left me in tears since it was something I was really looking forward to.

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.
I only ended up having the ceremony, so I was able to convince the bridal party to do a little dance as the bridal parties entry to the mandap so I could still have a little bit of dancing for our wedding.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For any brides to be - don’t forget that you are planning the wedding as way to celebrate the start of a new and beautiful chapter. So remember that it is something you want to enjoy not overplay.

What a lovely story! Remember to join us tomorrow for more!
