And all we have to say is that we were rendered speechless over such ravishing look! Once the lovely ceremony ended, an unforgettable wedding reception started, and everyone enjoyed every single minute of it. To turn this gala into an epic party, our friends from DJ RAJ Entertainment & Event Lighting jumped into the stage and played their phenomenal beats that set the dancefloor on fire!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Harsh and I met at Quinnipiac University during a South Asian Society meeting. My favorite part of how we met is that we really just started as friends, he was my best friend for while before we recognized how we felt about each other. To date, he is the one person I can always count on and knows exactly how to talk me through any situation (even when I was freaking out about wedding planning). I suppose I knew he was the one when I felt comfortable being my weirdo self around him. That comfort level is everything.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Harsh and I had done long distance for a few years so we always met at the same spot in Hoboken every Friday after work. Those were the best Fridays, we'd grab food, get some dessert, and then just sit by the water and watch the beautiful city skyline. So, when Harsh proposed, we were watching the same city skyline right before grabbing a bite to eat. Unfortunately, it was December and negative eleven degrees. But, fortunately, there wasn't a single person in sight and we had that perfect little moment all to ourselves. Afterwards, we grabbed a bite to eat at our favorite pizza place in Hoboken, Grimaldi's, and then went to my house where our whole family was waiting to celebrate with us. 

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 the big things like venues, catering, photography/videography, and decor first. Then moved into DJ, hair/makeup, mehndi, and outfits. I did a ton of research, followed a lot of different vendors on Instagram to get a feel of their work, and really made sure I knew the market/pricing. I had schedules for each day, informed my vendors and family of those schedules, and had every detail planned out of the events. Honestly, it was all so so worth it. I was shocked we stayed on schedule and that we were even able to enjoy the food at our own wedding! I really trusted the vendors we chose, they produced great quality work and were very efficient so my overall experience was really great. Everyone was so great about timing and about doing everything they could to make our wedding as special as possible. Would highly recommend all of the vendors we selected.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Our wedding was in the Fall so I really wanted to embrace some Fall colors. So, I chose maroon and blush pink for the wedding outfit, mustard yellow for the Sangeet, and mauve for the reception. I LOVED all of my outfits. I had zero time to go to India for them so I followed a lot of different vendors on Instagram and that's where I found Walia Jones. They made it SO easy for me and my outfits were custom made so beautifully thanks to them. I had a vision and they helped bring it to life. They completed the outfits and shipped everything very quickly so I definitely appreciated that. In general, I knew what I wanted, the style, the colors, and looked through a ton of pictures to customize the outfits how I wanted them. Loved my experience with Walia Jones and would highly recommend!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
To be truthful, I didn't enjoy the planning. It was stressful, tedious, and took up every weekend until the day of the wedding. However, the actual wedding weekend, I was the most relaxed I had been in months because all that planning and stress was finally paying off. My favorite part was starting the events and watching everyone enjoy something I knew I put a lot of work into. Other than that, the food tasting hands down was my other favorite part lol, Chand Palace did an excellent job with the taste and presentation. Very easy to work with them and they make some quality food.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The outdoor scenery at Brooklake Country Club. I think our guests took as many pictures outside in front of the golf course as we did. That view is so breathtaking and the day of the wedding was cloudy but the temperature was perfect. Since it was cloudy, our pictures came out perfect. Other than that, I think they enjoyed the food and DJ a lot.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
One thing I really wanted to make sure was special and done well was my mehndi. I wanted a certain symbol incorporated in it because it's something that means a lot to both me and Harsh. When Harsh and I first started dating, he gave me a necklace with a dopamine molecule and it was my favorite gift from him because I felt that he truly understood how much I love nerdy things like that. I love that I was able to incorporate the dopamine molecule into my mehndi. It was something we shared years ago and Mehndikalogie was able to make it part of my wedding day - it meant a lot!

We have more prepared for you. So, make sure to joins us tomorrow as we still have tons of inspiring stories to share with you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Stevie on January 4th, 2018, following an introduction on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel. Our first date was on the day that the Bomb Cyclone blanketed New York City in snow. We met for drinks at Bobby Van's near Grand Central Station, because it was one of the few places that remained open. Time seemed to pause, along with the outside world, as we chatted for hours!
 
I was struck by Stevie’s quiet confidence, wit, and uncanny familiarity. I felt as though I already knew him -- on our first date alone, there was an easy and natural balance between us. To my friends, I referred to him as “Steady Stevie," and that last part has stuck. Within just a few weeks of dating, I told my mom (much to her alarm) that I knew I was going to marry him. We ultimately chose January 4th as our wedding day, as it is also the date we met!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
A year after we met, Stevie fittingly chose to propose in Grand Central Station on a beautiful evening in January! I met up with him at Grand Central Oyster Bar. We checked our coats and grabbed a glass of wine at the bar. Curiously, the Maître D' (who was in on it) said there would be a long wait even though the place was empty. So to kill time, we drifted over to the Whispering Gallery and eventually the Main Concourse. There, Stevie told me we were going on a journey; which train did I think we were taking? Perplexed, my concern was that we had left our coats (and wine!) at the restaurant. He said not to worry, and gestured at the balcony overlooking the concourse, where I suddenly saw my parents waving. When I turned back around, Stevie was on one knee, with heartfelt words and a big smile on his face.
 
The rest of the night is a blur of glee -- champagne and hors d'oeuvres with my family at Bobby Vans (where we had our first date), a casual pit stop to see Hamilton on Broadway, and a surprise afterparty at my favorite bar, Ted's, where my brother had gathered a group of our closest friends! The night ended at 4 am, with Dollar Pizza on 3rd Avenue. We will forever thank New York City for bringing us together, a boy from Arizona and a girl from India.
 
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.
We had a destination wedding in my groom's hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. Since we live in New York, we found ourselves in the capable hands of my Arizona wedding planner, Laurie Stricklin! I had weekly calls with Laurie, who would find vendors to match my ideas. We also had 3-weekend trips to  finalize decisions in person.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I had a vision for my white wedding dress being ultra-feminine with lots of lace detail. I went shopping with my mom at Kleinfeld Bridal and immediately fell in love with a gorgeous Pnina Tornai off-shoulder neckline and sheer lace bodice. The designer herself, Pnina, was there in person and helped me customize the rest of the dress: a soft A-line silhouette with a modest train. I have a video with her, as I said Yes to the Dress!
 
For my Sangeet lengha, I found myself drawn to modern Indian design, as opposed to the more traditional heavily-beaded florals. I've always loved vibrant colors and patterns, and so I chose a bright turquoise + pink lengha with gold accents! With my groom in gold, and our wedding party in teal and pink, we felt it all came together really well.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
We know we come from very different backgrounds, cultures, and religious traditions. So throughout the planning process, our North Star was the idea of "One True Fusion Ceremony," which was a lot of fun to brainstorm!
 
We wanted the important elements of each of us represented. I wore a white dress as a nod to Stevie’s culture, and he wore an Indian suit for me. My bridesmaids represented my tradition in red lenghas, and the groomsmen represented his culture, in black tuxedos. Our ceremony featured both a western Officiant and a Hindu Pandit. We had Bible Readings and Hindu Mantras, recited our own Vows and even Broke the Glass. Our wedding had everything from the Henna to the Horah! Even our hashtag (#OneLesserMenon) combined both our last names and embraced the spirit of unity.
 
Before the wedding day we had a Mehendi, Rehearsal Dinner, and Sangeet -- this rounded out all the traditions of our families. It was a wonderful, colorful, and authentic wedding for the two of us.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think the thing that the guests appreciated the most was embracing a cultural element that they weren't accustomed to! Many of my Indian family members had never experienced toasts at a Rehearsal dinner, never seen a bride in a white dress, and never danced to a Horah! Stevie's side of the family loved picking out Indian outfits for the Sangeet, getting Henna done on their hands, and watching our "mystical" Hindu ceremony. Many of our friends loved practicing together for Sangeet performances, and donning bright kurtas, saris, and ornate jewelry. We hope every guest got to experience something unique, and authentic to our fusion wedding.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I absolutely LOVED watching my "gora" groom perform bhangra at our Sangeet, alongside two seasoned Indian friends! He has always been a great dancer, but it was absolutely incredible -- the whole crowd was cheering and I think his side of the family was stunned! It really warmed my heart that he wanted to embrace the Indian culture and do something that required stepping completely outside of his comfort zone.
 
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 tried to weave in authentic, important pieces of our story throughout the wedding. For our first dance we chose the song "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat, because this was actually the first song we danced to, a few weeks into dating! Signature drinks at our reception were based on our favorite cocktails. At the afterparty in our hotel suite, we had my groom's favorite: In-N-Out burgers, fries, and shakes. Too many details to recount here!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Being a very planning-oriented person, I made a conscious decision to just let go and be present the week of the wedding. You've done all the hard work, now soak up every moment, and ENJOY!
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Our wedding gifts to each other were so special! We wanted to gift each other things that would become our family's heirlooms -- our story forever passed down along with them. Stevie is a big watch-enthusiast, so I surprised him with a classic and timeless Patek Philippe dress watch. I had the back of the case engraved with the words, "January 4, 2020. Until the end of time." He got me a stunning 3.5-carat Infinity ring, with 20 oval diamonds to represent the year we got married.
 
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. And stick around, we have more prepared for you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Aamir and I met when I was in middle school and he was in high school! We started dating when I was 14 and he was 15. Little did we know that 13 years later we would be getting married. I think we knew that this was going to work for the long haul when we very quickly clicked. We went from being boyfriend/girlfriend to best friends and then to business partners. At that point, we knew that this relationship was going to be a love story for the books

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Every thanksgiving we vacation in Cancun with Aamir's family. This was the first thanksgiving that we were going to go along to Cancun. Naturally I knew something was up. We stayed at the Secrets the Vine in Cancun in the honeymoon suite. Aamir had been playing me since August and letting me book our trip when little did I know he knew which resort I would end up picking and from there he worked with the resort for a romantic beach proposal. It was the cutest and sweetest moment of my life! It was perfect! As we came around the corner to go down the steps to the beach you saw herds of people gathered around and I remember looking to Aamir and saying oh look someone is getting proposed too and then I remember doing a double take and being like OMG THATS MY NAME!

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.
Honestly this was SO FUN FOR ME! Being a corporate event planner i was so excited to plan a more creative like event. My favorite part was planning all the little surprise and delight experiences and my least favorite part was deciding on my outfits. I LITERALLY could not make a decision cause the pressure was so high.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew for my indian lengha I wanted a traditional red lengha. I have always dreamed of being a traditional bride in a bright red lengha. As I got older my dream started getting mixed in with an american style reception. With that being said we ended up doing a combo to make both dreams come true. A red lengha for the sangeet and a white lace wedding dress for the reception

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Honestly it was when we were able to get our families together to do DIY projects, dance practices and wedding planning! It was so fun to get everyone together and it will be one of my favorite memories from the wedding. I am blessed to have such AMAZING family and cousins who were by my side during this whole wedding process

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think our guests favorite part of the wedding was how uniquely different it was. It had a good pairing of traditional and non-traditional elements.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our special moment was spending the morning of the reception with our bridal party and close family. We truly were blown away seeing everyone come together and make our dream wedding come together. I remember walking out from my hair and make-up into the venue hall and having that ah-huh moment on how blessed we truly are!

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 4 day wedding started off with a traditional mendhi at both the bride and grooms homes. It was filled with lots of food, laughter and dancing. We decided to change up the normal tradition and do the grooms egg rasum on this day to help the ease of the pithi/sangeet on the next day. The pithi and sangeet was our FAVORITE day! Our families put on wonderful performances and skits that talked about our relationship. Aamir and I are middle school sweethearts. Yes, middle school! The pithi had delicious indo-chinese food, chaat station, falooda station, bangle bar, bindi bar and dupatta bar. Guests were then served gourmet popcorn for their late night snack. The nikkah was on Friday and took place at our ismaili center in Plano. WE drove in style to the pithi in a McLaren and did the traditional khoba kobi game. Aamir build a WONDERFUL donut wall that we used to provide the traditional sweets for everyone to celebrate the marriage. On Saturday, we had a more americanized traditional reception! Growing up in the american culture but still having solid traditional roots made picking a theme for the wedding tough. Our happy medium was a FULL traditional mendhi, pithi, sangeet and nikkah with a non-traditional reception. We started the day off in a party bus and had a full day in the bridal and grooms suite with our bridal party! The evening kicked off with entrances, cake cutting and lots of dances. Each guest got to takeaway gourmet organic cotton candy for the favor. We catered barbeque food and had cupcakes and a smores bar for the desserts. We ended the evening with a sparkler exit and fireworks! It was truly a magical time!!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Just enjoy every moment of it. All the stress during the weekend is not worth it! You have family to help with that. You want to be able to look back and be apart of your wedding

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mendhi had a few hidden elements that meant alot to me. For example an infinity sign with 2006 hidden in it. That is the year we started dating. Cake tasting was one of our favorite days! We wanted something different and seasonal so we went with mint chocolate chip, coffee flavored and cinnamon spice. The venue for each of our days were so different. Pithi/Sangeet had a more industrial and vibrant feel. The reception was rustic and modern at the same time. I truly think we paired a fusion of cultures into a very intimate and lovely little wedding.

Stay tuned for the marvelous wedding ceremony in our next post! You will love it.
