How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mike and I were set up by a mutual friend at school (University of Delaware) almost 10 years ago. We started dating my senior year and then I moved to NYC while Mike stayed in Delaware to complete his master's degree - we were long distance for 2 years and the second Mike moved to NYC, I knew I couldn't imagine being apart from him again!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Mike picked me up from work to grab a drink before we were going to a Kygo concert. Instead of grabbing a drink first we went for a stroll where he proposed in Battery Park. I found out later he was supposed to propose the day after in Central Park where we had one of our first real dates but once he found it was going rain he knew there was no chance of getting me to the park without being suspicious. He also planned a surprise party for our immediate family and our closest friends at Tavern on the Green in Central Park.
 
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 such wonderful vendors that really supported us in building our dream wedding! When we went to our first appointment with Glamorous Events with my PowerPoint presentation of inspiration for the decor I wanted for all three events, instead of thinking I was crazy they executed it perfectly. Our DJ from BWD events helped us create the perfect playlist to balance Mike's favorite EDM songs with my 90's reggaeton requests all while simultaneously catering to our Punjabi and Jewish guests. Salwa Photography and Unique Visions captured all our favorite moments while making us feel so comfortable with cameras next to us in our most intimate wedding moments. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Mike and I had a #hinjewwedding, instead of blending our Hindu and Jewish wedding ceremonies we had both! So I went the traditional route for both ceremonies; I wore a red lengha for our Hindu ceremony on Friday and a white wedding dress for our Jewish wedding on Saturday.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Being engaged! Realizing we were planning OUR wedding, we truly felt the excitement as we made the wedding of our dreams come to life!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We are still so flattered by all of our guest's compliments - they loved our decor at the Sangeet - we went for traditional bright India - lots of colors, Mendhi stations, a rickshaw to take pictures with, a Bazaar full of bangles and purses. For the Hindu wedding - I could not hear more about how Mike's Baraat and how amazing he looked like an Indian groom on a horse and his dance moves! For the Jewish ceremony and reception our guests loved everything about our venue, Flowerfield, the grounds were stunning and they were blown away by their catering!
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Mike and I snuck out of our reception and took a moment to ourselves to walk outside and admire the party from afar and it was so special to take that minute for just us and to stand back and appreciate all of our friends and family on the dance floor celebrating us!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to enjoy being engaged - it all goes by so quickly, it is so easy to get stressed and caught up with the planning process. Mike and I planned specific moments during the process that was just for us - whether it was going to a vendor appointment alone, booking a spa day, or just going for a picnic in Central Park. It is important to remember you are not just planning a wedding, you are getting married!
 
Wait to see what we have prepared for your tomorrow!

Good morning, Maharanis! We have reached the end of this fantastic week, but we are not done yet! We have prepared a phenomenal time for you. So get ready to be amazed by the beauty that surrounded Reashma & Sujith's wedding celebration. This was a glorious celebration, where two different cultures mingle together to celebrate the love union from their favorite ones.

Everything was perfectly trimmed and planned by L&B Events, who took our lovebirds' vision and transformed it into a dream come true! And we cannot forget about the marvelous decoration crafted by House of Dipali, who filled every inch of this celebration with beautiful floral arrangements that left everyone speechless. To conclude this phenomenal time, a fantastic wedding reception was hosted inside the halls of The Villa Borghese, and to turn the gala into an epic party, our friends from DJTM jumped into the stage and played their phenomenal beats, making everyone dance the whole night! Thank heaven we have the talent from The DV Image, who captured all details and created this fantastic gallery. So make sure to visit it. I know that you will be delighted!

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 went about planning our wedding by first looking for the perfect venue. My husband's family resides in Long Island, NY and my family resides in Albany, NY. We decided to have the wedding in Poughkeepsie, NY since it was the halfway point between our hometowns. The staff at the Villa Borghese were on board from the get-go. Nothing was too much to ask and they went above and beyond to accommodate our every whim. For the ceremony, I had always wanted to get married in a beautiful, old church with lots of architectural details. Both Sujith and I instantly fell in love with the Reformed Church of Poughkeepsie on sight. Because of the classic design of my dress and the old world style of the church, we decided on an English Garden feel for our ceremony. We had lots of white and blush pink florals accented with greenery throughout the space. For our evening reception, we decided to add black accents to bring more dramatic flair. House of Dipali was responsible for all of our florals and staging. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I remember watching the Royal Wedding in 2018 and falling in love with Meghan Markle's simple, yet elegant wedding gown. I knew right then that I wanted my wedding gown to be as equally timeless. After trying on many dresses, I came to the realization that I may need to go the custom route in order to achieve what I envisioned. I went to Xena's Bridal, a local boutique in my hometown, and I was able to customize an existing gown by Casablanca. My wedding gown ended up being everything I imagined and more!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests loved the Venetian Hour at the end of our wedding.  The Villa Borghese brought out eight tables of desserts from La Deliziosa Bakery and guests were provided with little boxes to take desserts home. There were also sparklers, an ice sculpture, and a Bananas Foster Flambé station. Villa Borghese also provided Gyros and fries for all of our guests as a late night snack on their way out.
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The highlight of the night was looking onto the dance floor and seeing all of our friends and family from all over the world crowded onto the dance floor. We felt so blessed and loved at that moment.
 
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.
My cousins and I have choreographed and danced together since we were very young and so I thought it only appropriate that we perform at the reception. All of my bridesmaids joined in and it was such a special part of the evening.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The wedding day is such a blur, but don't forget to take the time to enjoy it! It really does go by in the blink of an eye.

If you want to get more inspiration, visit us tomorrow. We have more for you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ramzi and I met in high school through mutual friends. We were friends for a long time and I'm not sure when I realized when he was the one, the realization felt almost immediately but it also felt like it wasn't anything new that I didn't already deep down know.
In high school as my friend he celebrated almost everything that made me myself, which made him my best friend. He knew nothing of bollywood movies, but because I was so into them he would listen to me rant about them and watch movies on his own time. He bought me my own DVD copy of my favorite movie DDLJ when I was a junior in high school. He also would listen to my obsession with Harry Potter and one day slipped a Hogwarts embossed letter in my locker of my 'delayed' Hogwarts acceptance letter, with the whole first year school supply list attached (AND it was all accurate). He also hates Harry Potter.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I've always wanted to wear traditional red for my wedding. Growing up I used to try on my moms wedding dress and I loved the thread work, zardozi, and pearl work all over the lengha and dupatta. The dress was actually gifted to my mom by my dad and his parents because a couple of weeks before their wedding, the wedding dress my mom originally picked was lost during delivery and she never received it. The wedding dress from then on was always the dress my late grandparents chose.
 
Months into my wedding shopping, I realized I was basically looking for my moms exact wedding dress. I decided I wanted to wear her lengha and readjust the blouse so it wasn't 80s themed anymore. I paired with it her Nikkah dupatta as my shawl. The dress is very reminiscent of traditional South Asian bridalwear, and I loved how it felt as relevant to me as it did to my mom almost 30 years ago.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The two biggest surprises from my wedding is what still replays in my mind, which was my husbands' surprise performance on the mehndi and the dabke teams on the reception. I knew my friends and family were performing at the mehndi, but i didn't realize Ramzi (who is a very shy person) would  be getting up and performing a quick dance to a song from one my my all time favorite movies, Mehndi laga ke rakhna from DDLJ. To this day I still watch the performance and i'm stunned how much effort was put in by everyone and remember how absolutely shocked & heartwarming it was to see Ramzi perform.
 
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 really enjoyed bringing together both my Pakistani culture and my husbands Palestinian culture into the events. Traditionally, Pakistani Mehndi's are treated basically as a Sangeet. I really enjoyed planning a very Lahori feel to the mehndi, from the charpai's, a wooden swing on stage, a bicycle rickshaw for the guests to take pics with, a live jalebi and pani puri station, and more. Finding places  that could accommodate that look and feel was fun.
A day before the mehndi we had a henna party which was the actual application day and is an event that is in the Palestinian culture. I wore a traditional Palestinian dress with my applied mehndi. I wore the headpiece of his families culture which had gold coins - and because my fathers side of the family is Pathan I wore the traditional Afghani  choker. The women in his family did traditional chants while the women of my family played the dholki and the men in his played the saz in my parents house. It was very intimate with a beautiful blend of both our cultures.
For the reception though, we  created this almost fusion theme.  The favors were little arabic inspired bowl with lid that goes along with a Turkish tea set with a tassel and our names written in arabic. The food was both Pakistani, however we picked certain dishes which were more Persian influenced. The decor was simple with red roses and tea lights on each table and the stage was lit with candles as a backdrop with a flower wall and golden lanterns. The surprise to me were the dabke performances - which really made the event and really celebrated my husband's culture. They came in as a procession, with drums and chants and later in the evening performed and brought everyone to join in on the dabke. Which was new and exciting for my family as we'd never experienced it before. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Honestly, picking out the jewelry was the best part. I wanted to go all out with traditional pieces, because this was probably the only time I could justify wearing so many bold statement pieces. I picked each piece of jewelry I wore separately- which ended up being treasure hunt at desi melas around Northern VA to Jersey, Dubai and online. I found my jhoomar first and loved it so much I based my whole bridal set around that jhoomar. In Dubai, the clerk at the store laughed at me while I was looking for the choker and said it was like I was trying to 'buy a house that match a pair of drapes'. In the end though I loved every single piece and they all come with their own story. The nath on the reception day was a hard find, there is only a limited amount of styles for nose rings for actual pierced noses; and for the nose ring I wanted to go all out - like Deepika's Padmavati nose ring meets Amrita Singh's wedding.
I wanted very timed pieces on both the mehndi and the reception - from the 7-tiered rani haar on the reception to the mughal inspired rings on my mehndi. Which I found in a small Afghan souk in Dubai.

Wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. So stick around!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Anthony through a mutual friend. She invited me to his sisters birthday party. I didnt want to go but im glad I did. It took a long time for us to really become friends really about 1 year. He helped me through some tough times and we became best friends. We liked  the same things and did everything together. Soon I couldnt imagine life without him. I knew very early on that he was different and we would be together.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We didnt have a traditional proposal. I wanted to be more modern and join together mutually. We took engagement photos and announced our engagement. He surprised me with a rare pink sapphire "padparadscha" ring on the day of my bridal shower. My ring is unique and different like me. I cried all of my makeup off before I even got to my shower.

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 a destination wedding is difficult for a type A personality or I think for any bride. I couldnt have done it without my wedding travel agents and wedding planner Heather at Modern Destination Weddings. This is hands down the best decision I made. My own little team helped me with planning every little detail. They answered all my questions and helped me secure my venue and all arrangements for what we envisioned on our day. We wanted a very relaxed, fun, vacation vibe with good food and a party atmosphere. We chose to have our wedding at moon palace in ocho rios jamaica. We had a two day wedding. Friday was the indian ceremony and Saturday was the Christian ceremony. We had a reception and after party both nights!!  Traditional red and orange was my color scheme for the Indian day and white and pink was our color scheme for our American day. We definitely had some unique/ different approach. I didnt want too many decorations and wanted to let the beauty of the island show for itself. We had custom bride and groom drinks. I didnt want traditional bouquets for the bridesmaids so I opted for corsages instead. Being a bridesmaid 2 times and a maid of honor the year before I find bouquets exhausting to carry around and then they really just get wasted at the end, especially if you cant take them home. Having the right makeup and hair was super important to me, I flew in my makeup artist from NY @beautybytamanna . I LOVED the way both of my looks came out. My makeup lasted all day even in the Jamaica heat.  I feel like my jewelry played a very important part in bringing the looks to life. I loved my jewelry for both days and spent lots of time picking the right pieces.
My indian jewelry was from om sons  and my headpiece and earrings were from @bridalstylesboutique

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I saved so many pictures of styles I liked on Instagram and pinterest. For a tropical wedding I had initially wanted a.pink lengha but my MOM insisted on traditional red. I went with a compromise to make my mom happy and wore a red custom lengha for my ceremony and a pink lengha from @rehanasexclusivedesigns for the reception. I am so happy that I followed my moms advice because I felt like a bride in my red lengha. My lenghas both had floral motifs with crystal flowers.  I went shopping with my family first to get ideas and try on. I took my mom, my sister in law and my musee. We shopped for both indian wear and a white dress. But in the end when I was ready with my decision I went only with my mom to buy my final choice.
For my white dress I  chose an eve of milady gown which was from @bridalreflectionsny  It had just the right amount of beading and bling, lots of lace in a floral pattern a train and an illusion neckline.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I feel like I had people who were really helping me achieve everything I wanted for my special day. The most enjoyable part for me was creating those special details for my guests (like welcome bags) with things that they could enjoy and also bringing our own personality and spin to our wedding. I started planning waaayyy in advanced and I think thats one of the most helpful things you can do as a bride! You wont be stressed for time.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We had a very emotional american ceremony on day 2. Everyone was crying when I walked down the aisle. When i looked up as we were saying our vows all my guests and bridal party were crying. (Including the groomsmen)

We accomplished the atmosphere we wanted for our wedding. We had such a fun time both nights at our after party at the club noir in which we had the vip section. The groomsmen showered the groom with champagne and dare I day "it was lit".

We wanted it to be a mini vacation for our guests as well and I saw many hanging out at the pool and taking advantage of the activites at the resort. Many of my family did a dolphin experience and tried out the wave rider. We were there for halloween a day before our wedding and the resort even had a haunted house and some.halloween activities!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Both of our ceremonies were verry special to me. The emotion and the joy of seeing all of our family there to support us. The weather was perfect and it was everything and more. We lived in the moment to enjoy every possible thing ( except the food, its true you never get to enjoy your food the day of the wedding)

My maid of honor (my cousin) was the best. She literally fed me in between pictures and ceremony and reception to make sure I ate something. It wad hard to eat with the jewelry, the makeup and of course the nerves.

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.
Its really important to have a Pandit that is engaging and that can carry out your ceremony the way you envision. We had lots of guests who weren't of Indian descent and our Pandit did a fantastic job explaining all the traditions. He was very light hearted and funny. Everyone said the groom and I were so serious lol maybe we were too nervous. But many of my guests complimented us on how great they thought the ceremony/Pandit was.

My cousins did a surprise traditional dance for us which had all my favorite songs. Usually I am the one who dances at all the weddings and occasions so it was a nice surprise.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
FOLLOW YOUR HEART. at the end of the day its what makes you and your groom happy.
Leave lots of time to plan will definitely help with stress levels.
Communication and common ground. The bride gets what the bride wants but its also about the groom too so its important to make decisions together.
Remember why you are getting married and that its about love. One the day of your wedding everything might not go as planned but enjoy in the moment and forget about the rest !

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehndi was done at home here in NY by @hennaforallny. Monita is amazingly sweet and very talented. We did it late on  tuesday night before a flight early Wednesday morning. I tried to keep it on and warm for the longest possible time. The stain was rich and dark and lasted way after my wedding which was 3 days after I had it done.
I did alot of online ordering and found most if not all my vendors on Instagram.
I made a personalized guestbook with shutterfly my absolute go to design family album's.
I ordered my bridesmaids corsages and groomsmen boutineers from etsy
I also had a snapchat geofilter made for us from etsy. We weren't able to use it in Jamaica so I took the image and make custom drink signage for our signature drinks.

 

Make sure to join us tomorrow for another fantastic love story!
