How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through a mutual friend. We spoke over the phone for a few weeks and decided to meet up. I think we both felt a strong connection at our first meet. Our conversations were easy. We enjoyed each other's company. Everything just clicked as cliche as it sounds.

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 were very happy with all our vendors! They went above and beyond for all of our events. Our wedding wouldn't have been a success without them!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My friend of mine told me about a designer in Surat, India named Suruchi Parakh. I experimented with her for my engagement outfit. It fit like a glove and I knew I was going to have her design my wedding outfit. I chose maroon because I wanted a richer color and it suited my body type.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
In general, planning is not the most enjoyable. However, when your visions start coming to life and you see everyone enjoying themselves, I think that's the best part.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The venue and food were a hit! The venue had beautiful ballrooms and even more beautiful courtyard where we had our ceremony. Everything on our wedding day came together. The weather was perfect and the decor was exactly what we wanted: simplicity and elegance. The food for every event exceeded our expectations and our guests. We heard our guests rave about the food months after our wedding.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
After our mehndi event ended, I had to wash my hair to prep for the next day. Unfortunately, we weren't able to secure a room block at our venue because of a huge conference happening there during the same weekend. I had mehndi on my hands so I couldn't wash it. My soon-to-be husband, without hesitation, volunteered to help me wash my hair over the bathroom sink. It was our special moment.


Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Wedding planning can be very stressful. Check one thing off your to do list everyday so you're not overwhelmed. Remember to relax and do something that you enjoy or wedding planning can and will consume you.

Don't miss the beautiful outcome of this marvelous love story. Please visit us back!

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.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Noy and I first met at an engagement party nearly 11 years ago, we were on opposite sides of the bridal party. We spent the night dancing around each other, “unintentionally” bumping into one another, and sharing many looks. But at that moment while unknowingly falling for each other we didn’t realize that Noy resides in the US, and I am from Canada! A couple of weeks after the event, Noy sent me an email, and instantly we knew what we had was good, and we did everything in our favor to make it work. I knew Noy was the one when he would drive 8+ hours to only see me for a few, sometimes we couldn’t see each other months, but we supported and loved each other deeply and found ways over the 500 mile distance.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Noy and I both come from very large, close knit families. I had mentioned to Noy a few times, why it was important to me to have our parents there when he proposed. In 2016 (after 7 years of long distance), I decided to move to New York City and pursue my masters. In 2018, at my grad school graduation, surrounded by our parents, and our siblings, Noy got down on one knee and officially ended the distance between us. Our siblings were in on the surprise and did everything they could to help Noy make the proposal a special one. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. As I screamed “YES!!”, I looked around and saw our families overfilled with Joy.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was Noy and I working together through out. Planning a wedding could take a toll on you, but Noy and I constantly reminded each other that we were a team. From flying back and forth between Toronto and New York for trials and fittings, to cake tastings and dance classes, I wouldn’t change a thing of how it all came together for us.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Both Noy and I look back and remember the moment as we got ready for our reception. Just the presence of each other in the room felt different, this time we were together as husband and wife. I remember sharing looks from across our suite, watching Noy put his cuff links on that he so proudly picked out, it melted my heart. It was a moment in time, that we will always look back to and remember as we got ready for the most important night of our lives.

Birmingham, AL Indian Wedding by Jashim Jalal Studios

Good morning, Maharanis! We are heading to the end of this beautiful week, and we don't want to end it without bringing you the best of our inspirational corner; that is why we are pleased to feature Shalini & Anupam's magical wedding. On this first installment, we are taking you to the Grand Hyatt Regency – The Wynfrey Hotel to witness their pre-wedding celebrations that marked the beginning of this journey! I want to highlight how the gala was beautifully designed and planned by none other than Red and Gold Events, a team who made sure to execute every detail perfectly well. You will love the glowing presence that Shalini, our Maharani, radiated at the sangeet. She came out looking gorgeous as she relied on Gunn Glamour Hair, Makeup, & Bridal's talent for her beauty needs. Anupam couldn't take his eyes out from her. How romantic! Both families gathered to celebrate before the big day, and what best way to celebrate than with the fantastic beats from DJ Riz Entertainment, their team lighted up the sangeet and turned it into a real festival. If this event looks familiar to you, you are right! We showcased this event in a touching footage masterpiece created by Light Cannon Films, and you can relive it here. Today we've prepared a phenomenal gallery thanks to the photo captures from Jashim Jalal Studios. So make sure to visit it to increase your inspiration.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We wanted a summer outdoor wedding so I decided a bold pink/magenta would be the perfect shade to complement the occasion. I traveled to India to do my wedding shopping with my parents and sister-in-law. Unfortunately, the shade I had in mind was not in fashion in New Delhi at the time I was shopping so I had to use my imagination and take a leap of faith with the lengha I chose as it was in a light grey shade. The store showed me a fabric in the exact shade I wanted and promised they could make the dress in the color I wanted. Thankfully it worked out wonderfully and I'm glad I took the risk!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part of the planning process was how it brought me closer to Anupam and my family. We all spent lots of time chatting on the phone about every little decision and everyone pitched in to help. It meant the world how invested everyone was in making sure our special day was truly unforgettable.  
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the wedding venue, Sterling Castle! It was an outdoor venue with a castle, a lake, and a beautiful reception hall. Misty and Victor, the owners of Sterling Castle, did a phenomenal job transforming the venue into a tropical paradise with beautiful flowers and pineapples flown in from all over! They also decorated the pergola overlooking the lake into a lovely mandap for us to get married under. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start as early with the planning as you can. Book the major vendors ASAP because the good ones get booked fast, especially on a long weekend! Enjoy the process and ask for help from your family and friends. Chances are they will actually love to help with some of the decisions. Don't fight with your fiancé(e) about wedding details because it isn't worth it. What matters most is that you enjoy the celebrations and cherish the memories with your family and friends. And invest in an amazing photographer and videographer because they will help capture those memories so you can treasure them forever!
 
Please visit us for the beautiful second event of this celebration!
