How did you meet your Groom, and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met at the hotel where we used to work together. Ankit was always loving and caring right from the first day, and to be honest, I knew right from the beginning HE WAS THE ONE.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were out on 19th Aug to Times Square. He told me to get ready as he hired some photographers to take our pictures. I had no idea of anything. When I was at Times Square, I suddenly saw on a large screen at Time, “Angel, will you marry me?” and 3 pics of us together. I was having goosebumps as I didn't know what was going on. I was totally surprised. In a few seconds, I got back to my senses and said YES to my love.

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair and makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Planning a wedding was really hectic as we did in less than 4 weeks. The proposal was on 19th Aug 2022, and the wedding was on 27th Sept 2022. We decided around 29th Aug that we were going get married in Sept
My husband did most of the running work from finding Vendors, Wedding Planner, and Venues. I went at the last on most things to finalize and to see them. Decorations we both selected together after going through some samples

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Do you have a favorite color in mind?
I selected Wedding lengha from NAZARANA in Edison. I went to Nazrana Boutique first and found my lehnga, but my husband insisted on checking other places too, and I did, but for some reason, I was stuck to the one I chose at first and bought it. Which was a very good decision as everyone loved that attire

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Shopping was the most hectic and fun part because it was the first time you got a real Licence to shop, and you could buy anything from jewelry to Bridal dresses and make-up, and no one could say no coz you were the BRIDE.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Guests particularly loved how I and my husband had bonded together. Pretty much each and every one of them said that we were made for each other, and I loved that part most, apart from that they loved the Food which was from the Taj caterer and also our performances.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
7 pheras and Varmala ceremony. That was the most memorable moment for me. From childhood, we dream that it will happen one day, and when it happens, and the person is really the love of your life you wanted, there is no better feeling than that. I still rewind and watch them every now and then.

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.
Decor we kept very simple but elegant. We wanted to have a light Pink color, and it went really well with our attire.
Dances were the most lively part of our reception. Our reception highlights when we put it on social media, it got so many views and plays. All the performances were very good, and the speeches made were memorable.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Words of wisdom for brides-to-be is “ Give everything in your relation to make it work.” There is no He/she but only we.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I can keep going on and on, but the most and most important person who really made this wedding look nice and big was “VIRDEE FILMS.” I have never seen such professionalism, but on top of that, being such a humble person and accepting each and every request from Bride, groom, and family is remarkable. Everyone loved our pre-wedding videos on the wedding day. And Wedding and reception highlights are played every time our relatives come home. So special special, special thanks to Virdee films. Thanks

We hope you enjoy today's feature, darlings. Cheers to love and the endless possibilities it brings!

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 used our amazing planner @Preetiexclusive to help us find all of our day of vendors, including venue/HMUA/decor and theme.  Alex and I brought Pinterest boards and Google docs with photos of inspiration for what types of look and feel we were going for, and Preeti helped us figure out what we could achieve with the vendors in Mexico as well as our Resorts catalog of offerings. For outfits, I followed a bunch of designer Indian brands as soon as we got engaged so that I could get inspiration on bridal outfits as well as stores where I could find affordable options.  My mom and dad also took a trip to India to find affordable outfits for some of our events as well as matching outfits for our immediate family.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My bridal lengha was actually not as big of a purchase as my sangeet and reception outfit. I knew I wanted a classic red dress that was timeless, so I went pretty basic. For the other events, I wanted to go for something more trendy or playful. For my sangeet, I got a pastel embroidered lengha from Chamee & Paalak, and for my reception, I got a white and gold floral embroidered lengha by Seema Gujral from ShopKynah.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the process was working together with Alex to make decisions on what did and didn't matter to us for our wedding. We knew we wanted this wedding to be intimate and fun, so we prioritized the things that would make lasting memories rather than trying to please others.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the food and the fun at our wedding. Our caterer @PatravaliCancun brought amazing flavors for us, and our DJ @DJAmbition brought so much hype to our wedding. Because our guest list was atypically small, each and every guest got to know each other and spend time with us - which is not common for a lot of South Asian weddings. That intimacy made this event all the more memorable and special.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Alex (the groom) makes his own music, and we had his Best Man perform his original music at the wedding. @DJAmbition also surprised us on the dancefloor during our reception with his original music. It was an incredible feeling when everyone was singing along and jamming out to his own song. It felt like he was a rockstar!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
This is your day, don't let it become about other people.

Witness the love, laughter, and breathtaking moments of South Asian weddings. Come back for more!

How did you meet your Groom, and when did you know he was "the one"?
My Groom and I met when we were in High School together, where we competed for the top spot in most of our classes together. We were friends first, who took the bus home together and talked on AIM Chat all evening after school. After an entire school year of talking, laughing, and joking, my now Husband, Kirendra, told me that he wanted to tutor a girl that he liked in school. Having a big mouth, I told him he couldn't do that because I liked him, to which he responded by not tutoring her and spending more time with me. I've learned over the course of 12 years of dating that Kirendra was the one for me from the days when we were best friends and every day after, as he has always been supportive, kind, and loving to me and my happiness.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
My now Husband knew that family involvement was extremely important to me and to him as well, so he organized the proposal to be a huge celebration that both sides could witness & attend. In October of 2020, Kirendra organized with his friends and family that while he and I attended a party in the daytime, they would set up his backyard with decorations, food, music, and a beautiful circle of lights that said: "Marry Me." He took me to his house after the daytime party, saying that he "forgot his wallet" and had to pick it up. When we got to his backyard, it was extremely quiet, but I saw string lights and knew something was up. Once we got inside, all of our loved ones surrounded us, and he asked me to marry him. I said the quickest yes of my life, and we partied through the night.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my Bridal Lengha, I wanted to do something custom that had my own touch on it. As an Engineer by trade, I really love to design and draw new ideas and wanted to incorporate that into my outfit. My custom lengha vendor (L&S Boutique in Queens, NY) worked with my sketches and color choices (Burnt Orange & Burgundy) through her vendor in India and managed to custom hand stitch my lengha over the course of 3 months. My Lengha had all the detail I wanted: Gold stonework, peacocks, elephants, geometric patterns, layered fabric, and the overall traditional look that I wanted. For my wedding dress, I wanted to share the experience with my mom, sister, and my mother-in-law. We went to Kleinfeld Bridal, where I fell in love with a Martina Liana Dress in undertones of Ivory. This dress matched perfectly with a custom ivory & floral cathedral veil that I got custom-made, so I was grateful for how the entire ensemble worked together. It is also noted that my Husband wore his father's traditional wedding garment from his wedding 29 years ago, repurposed for this wedding. Even during my husband's suit shopping at Indochino, it was a family activity, and my husband's older cousin came with us, and it was a delightful evening. Overall, the garment process served as a special homage to our families, as each piece of cloth, color, and accessory meant something to us and our families.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of planning was bouncing ideas off my Husband and doing the activities together. There was not one wedding item that we had to do that felt like a chore; everything was enjoyable as we often did custom-made things together or with the family, so it felt like a group activity, as opposed to just another thing to do. One of my favorite memories was when my Husband and I would sit in the kitchen together and leave a show on for background noise while we made 300 wax seals just to spend time together. I also really enjoyed the ability to make everything unique and custom during the planning process, as it was our wedding, and we had so many ideas to make it aligned to our personalities and past together.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
7 years ago, my best friend in life, my Dad, passed away. My dad was everything to me, serving as an inspiration to my strength, full of brilliance & wit, and a good person. When he passed, I was a sophomore in college, my Mom was still working hard, and my Sister & Brother-in-Law had just gotten pregnant with their first child. It was an extremely difficult time in all of our lives, but my Dad always valued love & family higher than everything else, and we used his principles to get through the hardship, work hard and attain our goals. This was a similar situation for my Husband, as he lost his close paternal grandfather years ago as well. For our wedding, we did two tributes to our loved ones that passed on, one directly after our Hindu ceremony and one during our first reception dance. This was extremely special to us as it brought our family together, and it was a beautiful moment that both families shared, bringing the wedding full circle to remember two of the main people in our family that gave us so much value in the past and that we remember in the present.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Every single one of my vendors was magic in their own way. The main detailer that brought every dream to life for me was my Wedding Coordinator/Decorator, Ruban Events. Ruma & Sandy from Ruban Events were persistently positive and happy to work with me to make every vision I had a reality. One of the biggest highlights I can say is the Hindu Wedding Mandap. To say it was unique, breathtaking, and unforgettable is an understatement, as they brought to life something that even I couldn't imagine. Another Vendor with pure magic was Jadore Love, our Photographer & Videographer. Efrain (Photographer/Owner) has the ability to exude kindness, professionalism, and comfort in every situation, doing his best to learn about the Bride & Groom and attest to their dream photos. His creativity and pursuit of perfectionism make the photos and memories magic, and he is a person who is more than a photographer. My other vendors were also magic: HennabyInder (IG Handle), who did my arm & leg henna in a completely unique & custom fashion, Lsboutiquebysangeeta (IG Handle), who not only custom-made the Bride & Groom Outfits but also did the majority of family members, bridesmaids & groomsmen beautifully, Majestic_Sound_Crew (IG Handle), truly the best and most attentive DJ, Emcee & expert on hot add-ons for the wedding, My beauticians, Blenditwith_aj & Sassyhairvanessa (IG Handles), who made me comfortable and relaxed during my multiple days of events & finally, My Venues & Transportation, Golden Terrace Banquet Hall, Larkfield Manor & Mark of Elegance, where the organization, communication & professionalism were appreciated.

Today's journey is over, but the love story is just beginning! Don't miss our coming events here!
