How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Vinay and I met on Dil Mil. At the time, I had just finished nursing school in Delaware and he lived in northern Virginia. We both knew early on this was it. We texted and FaceTimed almost everyday for 3 weeks before we met in person for the first time. He came to see me in Delaware and then we took turns doing weekend trips back and forth. Every time we spent time together was even better than the last. After over a year of long distance we decided to take the next step and I moved down to Virginia. Though he told me early on he knew I was the one for him, it was solidified for me when I moved.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was on our 2 year meet-aversary...Vinay's 5 year old niece loves getting manicures so he set me up to get one with her and his sister. After a wonderful day out to lunch and the nail salon with his sister and niece I came home to our condo beautifully decorated with over 200 roses, the fireplace lit, our song playing, candles, balloons, and rose petals everywhere. He walked me over to our living room and with string lights he wrote out on the wall "will you marry me?" on a wall. I turned around and he got down on one knee. I wish remembered more details about what he said but I definitely felt like I blacked out! Afterwards, we got ready for dinner and when we reached the restaurant he had all of our friends and family surprise us when we walked in. This was another moment that day that felt like a blur but luckily it was caught on video!
 
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.
Overall my wedding planning experience was pretty smooth. All of my vendors were wonderful to work with and made the process a breeze.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
This was the most memorable and special experience of wedding planning for me. About 7 years ago my mom went through kidney failure and it was a long hard road before she got a transplant. When my brother got married in India, she was unable to attend because she was on dialysis. So I never thought I would be able to go to India to go dress shopping with my mom but she was well enough post transplant to go with me and we had the best time together. I will remember and cherish that experience forever. I knew I wanted to wear red but I didn't have much in mind past that. Luckily my mom had more of a vision than I did and having her with me was so helpful. We both ended up loving a lehenga in the first shop we went to, Kaaisha by Shalini in Delhi. I was afraid to commit without looking around other places but eventually ended up back there because I realized I was comparing everything to that initial lehenga I loved.  Shalini was so lovely to work with and so talented. She sent me pictures of my lehenga being hand stitched throughout the process which was so exciting while I was waiting for it.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Probably the same as above. Going to India to go shopping with my mom was always something I wasn't sure I would get to do. So it was definitely the most memorable and enjoyable part of wedding planning for me.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone had a great time on the dance floor. So many guests told us they loved the music and it was the most fun they've had at a wedding. Vinay and I love dancing so it was important to both of us to have a DJ that would keep the party going!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
We didn't do a first look, so the first time we saw each other was when I walked down the aisle. Seeing him for the first time when I got to the mandap was the most special moment for me. He looked so handsome as a groom!
 
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 was never the girl that had a vision or knew every detail about my decor and style. It took a lot of eliminating what I didn't like to find what I liked. It also took a lot of help from my bridesmaids and family, so thankful for their help and support! Sachi from Partyland Sajawat nailed what I wanted even without me knowing what I wanted. The decor for our ceremony brought tears to my eyes when I first saw it.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Though the process can be stressful, remember it will all come together! Enjoy it as much as you can and take in every moment the day of. It goes by SO FAST!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)

Amelia Island, FL Indian Wedding by Akbar Sayed Photography

Welcome back, Ladies! We are now ready to unveil the marvelous reception of Meera & Avinash's wedding. After their ceremony, it was time for the ravishing party to celebrate such a marvelous milestone. The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island was splendid and glowing for celebrations thanks  Myar Decor, who built a magical ambiance, with majestic flower arrangements and centerpieces gave a luxury and glam touch to every corner of the hall. What a perfect job! Combined with the designed planning from Amina Events, who, as we already know, never fail to impress, took this party to a higher level. The natural beauty of Meera made my jaw dropped as she was totally beaming with that soft lavender lehenga and her hair and makeup by  Glam by Richa! Such a beauty. The night was epic, and everyone had a blast to the rhythm of DesiBel Entertainment, who turned this gala into an awesome party. Today we are double featuring this event so that you can enjoy a marvelous photo gallery brought by Akbar Sayed Photography, and highlight-reel created by Regal Palette Studio, you can watch here. I bet this great love story will inspire you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
At first, we met briefly through mutual friends when he visited Marquette for our ISA cultural show. And of course I was captured by his handsomeness; but our story actually began 2 years after this, when we crossed paths again during a friend's birthday celebration. For whatever reason, everyone had cleared out for a while and Nash & I were the only two remaining in the room. So naturally, I took this opportunity to get to know him better and it was during this conversation that I recognized my counterpart. Little details, like our birthdays being one day apart, our challenges with having to be the younger sibling in our families of 4, and each of us considering ourselves "chameleons" because of our adaptability throughout life--he was so unique, honest, and refreshing. I had a feeling right away that this guy was going to be way more impactful in my life that I had initially thought.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Nash and I were taking a weekend roadtrip to Michigan on our own, without our dog. Saturday morning Nash had planned a wine tour at this amazing castle in Charlevoix. We were in the gift shop after the tour & the cashier recommended that we stroll by the pond area because we could go & feed birds. As we were walking over to the pond, I saw a man jogging with a dog and remember saying to Nash, "Man! We should have brought ours. We didn't we research the dog policy?"
He was just nervously laughing at this point and once we were close enough, I realized that the dog I had seen was our sweet boy Thor! And he was waiting on a bridge for us, surrounded by flowers, wine, and the cutest little sign. I was sobbing in tears at the disbelief of what was happening. Nash proposed on the bridge, and we got to capture these unbelievable moments with our pup right beside us.
We drove 6 hours back to Chicago right away, and Nash suggested that we stop by to wish our friends happy anniversary before heading home. Turns out it was a surprise party with every single one of my closest friends, even from out of town, along with our parents. The next day, he had planned a surprise brunch with one group of friends, a surprise lunch with another, followed by an evening with the rest of my immediate family members to bring the most surreal weekend to a close. I am still in awe that Nash was able to pull off 5+ surprises for me without me finding out.

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 had always dreamed of getting married outdoors near the water. Our two pieces of criteria when venue searching was that it would be along the water, and that having our dog would be able to be in all of our events. Once we visited the Ritz-Carlton resort in Amelia Island, FL it was a no-brainer.
Although we had 5 wedding events, I had a total of 8 outfits throughout the course of our wedding weekend. Every single piece was customized for me in Mumbai, except for what I wore the morning of my Grah Shanti, which was my mom's wedding sari that she had carefully preserved.
@GlamByRicha has been a close family friend of mine for years, so when it came to hair & makeup I knew I didn't want anyone else. She is so gifted at her art and she made me feel so beautiful with every look that she created. Myar Decor provided all of our florals and decor services; I wasn't a bride who had very specific visions in regards to decor but Mital worked with me so diligently, making sure no option went overlooked, and that I was comfortable with what she and her team were producing for us.
When I first met DesiBel Entertainment, our DJ team, at a wedding in Cancun in 2016 I promised myself that I wouldn't get married without them. Their saxophonist, Harshal Dave, is hands-down one of the most unique individuals I have ever met. Lastly, I cannot rave about Akbar Sayed Photography and Regal Palette Studio enough. Their work speaks for themselves and the amount of creativity and care that they put into their work is overwhelming. Nash and I were very blessed to be surrounded by teams of people with so much skill & patience.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Nash and I knew from the beginning that we were not a couple destined to wear the traditional red. One of the things I learned about Nash very early on is that one of his favorite colors is actually pink! Knowing that our wedding ceremony would be held outdoors, we envisioned pink & white as the perfect combination for our special day. At the same time, I wanted the embroidery of my dress to still be traditional and not overwhelmingly heavy, simply because of the fact that I knew I was going to be outdoors all morning. I also wanted the opportunity to re-purpose my wedding outfit and wear it to other functions, rather than have it hanging in my closet for the rest of my life.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
During the 11 months of wedding planning, trying to plan my dream wedding while also respecting my parents wishes was certainly a challenge. However, when I reflect on the process....it was also the most enjoyable component. I got to spend so much time with them, learn so much about their innermost thoughts and visions, strengthen our communication, and really just become so much closer to them--something I didn't think was possible after having been living with them for the majority of my life. Many people would rather have their parents on the sidelines, without any interference or input from them. But I consider myself so lucky to have had the privilege to overcome these barriers together and find a united outcome with them. Having the chance to figure out how to be on the same team before moving out: that was the most enjoyable part of planning for me.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our wedding was nearly 4 months ago; but to this day, we are still hearing from our guests about how phenomenal their Ritz-Carlton experience was throughout our wedding weekend. The most exquisite factor that we continue to hear about was the food! The concoction of dishes, the presentation of each item, and the uniqueness of the menu for each of the 5 events. We are so lucky to have met Chef Jayshri of Ritz-Carlton and have her lead the culinary experience for our wedding guests.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Absolutely. Our vidaai was the most memorable part of the entire weekend for me. Nash and I had decided on a 2-person scooter for our departure after the wedding. We knew this would be met with a lot of surprise as its not very traditional; but what we did not anticipate was how liberating our vidaai would really feel for us. Amelia Island is so unique, as it is surrounded by tunnels of trees as well as water....getting to drive off after the wedding, wrapped up around my new husband, wind in our faces with no one else around us, and being surrounded by this kind of beauty. It was truly the definition of "bliss".

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
If it won't matter 10 years from now, then don't waste time dwelling on it.

Come back tomorrow, we have a new event prepared for you!
