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!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Nik planned a surprise trip to the Bahamas! I didn't know where we were going until we got to the gate at the Airport! All I knew was the climate of the location we were going to. Nik rented out a private cabana at The Cove Atlantis. Outside the cabana, there were candles in the sand that said: "Div, Will you Marry me?". There was also a private chef and a saxophonist! A truly special and romantic night.
 
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.
From our family to our vendors, we were lucky to have an all-star team making #DivNik a reality. Each vendor brought their specialized expertise and helped create a truly unique and unbelievable experience.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted a very modern bridal lengha. Red is one of my favorite colors to wear. I fell in love with Sabyasachi's designs.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Traditionally, many Indian weddings have between 500 and 1000 people attend. For us, it was important to have a close, intimate experience with our guests. In total we had 200 people attend our event. Almost every person knew each other at the wedding. This close vibe really made the weekend special.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first dance will be in our memory forever. We danced to "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Elvis. We practiced ballroom dancing for weeks! The dance was absolutely perfect. It felt as if it was just us two in the ballroom dancing. At that moment, we were married, done with wedding planning, and ready to enjoy our next chapter!
 
If you were inspired today, wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
On the first date, they shared their love of pizza, books they’d read, late-night coffee by the docks, and dancing unapologetically.

On the second date, they shared their love of melted kulfis (brought from Brampton to Hamilton in a little cooler because #truelove), hikes through waterfalls, books they’d picked out for each other, and tacos.

On the third date, Ashish asked her to be his girlfriend; she was the only one who laughed at his bad jokes and got him to dance. She said ‘chill bro, go read a book’. So he read plenty.

And then he wrote one.

Four years later, amidst the bustling Christmas crowd eagerly awaiting the tree lighting ceremony at Eatons Centre in Toronto, he sneakily led her to the quiet Fiction aisle at Chapters with the help of Kinshuk’s siblings, Ishani and Akshay.

In between shelves adorned with the polaroids of their favourite memories dangling off wires, Ashish placed the first draft of his book which contained his perfectly crafted proposal in the author’s bio.

With the blessings of their parents, he popped the question. She said yes!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Fun fact: I never tried on my bridal lengha or jewlery before it was bought! My sister (who is literally the best little sister anyone could ever ask for) did!

I knew I wanted a traditional red dress. Pinterest and Instagram were my friends as I scoured for ideas for designs. I wasn't able to go to India with my mom and sister, who actually bought everything for me. Probably for the best - their taste in fashion is fabulous! For instance, the bead finish on the blouse was my mom's addition 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I absolutely love planning and organizing, so the process was quite enjoyable! I also loved getting our families involved in the little details. Planning a wedding can also be taxing, and I am grateful for the support of our families in making those decisions.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The gorgeous smiles on family and friends' faces and all the love we received! Honestly, seeing people so joyous gave us all the energy we needed throughout the week.

Also, I didn't expect to see so many people busting into dance moves at the end of our long wedding ceremony. It was one of the most epic dance parties I've ever attended!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
R. 1. It takes a village! Delegate, delegate, delegate.
2. Communication (even at the risk of over-communication) throughout the process is incredibly critical so that you can sit back and relax on your big day!
3. Things will never go 100% as planned. Know how you're going to roll with the uncertainty.
4. Lastly, take a moment to enjoy the days! It feels like you plan forever, and then the days go by so fast.

If we inspired you today, come back tomorrow as we have tons of inspiration prepared for you.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on an Indian dating app- Dil Mil. The first time we spoke on the phone, we spoke for over 4 hours and still didn't want to hang up. For our first date, he planned multiple activities for an entire day in NYC! It was way better than I had imagined and our day was supposed to end at 9pm, but it ended at 2am! And neither of us really wanted the day to end. We clicked so well and felt like we had known eachother forever! We were so comfortable with one another. That's when I knew he's the one for me!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Asif planned an elaborate proposal right where it had all started-- in NYC! He planned a weekend get away for us and took me back to every place where we went on our first date to relive that moment and then took me to a rooftop where he got on his knee and asked me to marry him! I'm really big on pictures so he made sure there was a photographer there too! It was a lovely, romantic and private affair.

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 to India to shop for my outfits and jewelry. I did a lot of research about a year ahead of time for my vendors. I got a lot of hints and recommendations from Instagram and Maharani Weddings.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for shopping. The day after we landed, we went for shopping and I picked out a bunch of outfits. Out of all the outfits I tried, the white one stuck out the most and made me feel like that was my dress! I really wanted either an all white or blush lengha and wanted to pair it with either a red or hot pink dupatta on top. I found something even better than I had imagined. It was love at first sight! The entire family loved it the most too!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The way everything went so smooth and how much fun all our family and friends had! We loved every moment of it!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Find vendors that are easy to communicate with, that see your vision, and are easily reachable. A wedding coordinator is an absolute must to have a peace of mind on your wedding day! We had zero worries. Our coordinator, along with every single vendor, was amazing! We highly recommend all our vendors!

Ladies, if we inspire you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you to finish this week!
