How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
In the midst of the deadly COVID-19 outbreak, Akash and I found a rare bright spot. We had been scrolling through dating apps as the world was in lockdown, and let's face it, the dating scene as we know it had changed. Akash stumbled upon my Facebook dating profile and knew he had to take a chance.

Akash and I spoke every day for almost two months before actually meeting in person. I was captivated by Akash's charming words, and I had a feeling there was true genuineness behind them. Akash was impressed by my sense of independence and how accomplished I was. We would go on virtual dates; playing video games together was one of our favorite pastimes. Akash even let me beat him in Mario Kart, but only one time.

We finally went on our first real date on December 8, 2020. Akash took me on a romantic dinner. After that first date, I knew this was the beginning of something special.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
On Akash's first trip to Canada with me, he decided he wanted to propose to me in my favorite country. Unbeknownst to me, Akash and my family were secretly planning the fairytale proposal. On October 10, 2021, Akash took me to Casa Loma, a castle in Toronto, Canada, and said to his princess, "Babe, I know you always wanted to get married in a castle, but since we can't, let's do the next best thing." With our families watching in-person and virtually, Akash dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him. Without any hesitation, I said YES!

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 had been planning my wedding for as long as I could remember (long before I found my groom, LOL)

I knew I wanted my Hindu Wedding at Golden Terrace Catering Hall in Queens, NY, because not only could it hold up to 700 guests, but they also catered food and provided decor, including a beautiful royal mandap that matched my theme.

I also knew that I always wanted to have my reception at Crest Hollow Country Club on Long Island, NY. This venue is beautiful! The back area for cocktails is lovely, as guests are surrounded by a pool. The ballroom inside is also very large and can accommodate many guests. Crest Hollow had preferred vendors for decor. I decided to go with Stylish Events as they had the royal and blingy theme that I was going for.

For hair and makeup, I knew I wanted someone who could do hair and makeup for all my events. After researching and pricing out different MUAs, I went with Rebecca Bhagwandin (bexxalicious), and I was not disappointed. She made me feel like a beautiful princess for all my events!

For my Hindu wedding bridal entrance, I wanted to go for a Bollywood theme. Zamandari Inc. choreographed a beautiful entrance with my choice of songs. We left everyone, including my groom, in tears!

For photo and video, I also researched a bunch of vendors, but Events Capture had the best package. I am so pleased that we went with them because they captured everything we wanted and more!

For entertainment, we hired our family friend Jay Ramkishun and his team at FantaCSoundz. They kept our guests rocking for all our events!

Finally, our wedding was coordinated by Shivie Sookdeo at Platinum Celebrations. Shivie's execution of all my requests and needs was top-notch; he did not disappoint! I am so happy that I hired him and highly recommend his services for all weddings. Our wedding would not have gone so smoothly without him!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
For my Hindu wedding, there was no other place I wanted to go than to Nazranna. I made my family watch Nazranna's diaries every weekend until my appointment. I worked with Shia to find my royal and blingy outfits. And made sure that my groom's outfit complemented mine.

For my reception, I had always wanted to Kleinfeld. I used to watch Say Yes to the Dress with Mom for years! To my excitement, on the day of my appointment, my bridal consultant was Lisa! I was so excited because I was a fan of hers. After only trying on 4 dresses, I found my dream gown and said yes to the dress!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved working with all of my vendors! Everyone delivered and made our whole wedding a dream come true!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved my attention to detail and how beautiful everything was.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My Hindu Bridal Entrance.

I will never forget being carried in on the doli with my hubby waiting under the mandap, and he was crying! I never thought he would cry because he is a very jovial person. I had to try to contain myself when I saw him crying. I have never felt so loved by anyone in my life, and I will cherish that moment forever.

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 hired Omadevi Somai as a dancer for our entertainment. She is one of our favorite dancers in the West Indian community.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Limit your guest list. We had about 400 people at our wedding, and it was overwhelming and exhausting because everyone wanted to take pictures with you! Additionally, the more people you have, the more costly things tend to be.

If I had to do things again, I would definitely cut my guest list in half!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I got all my jewelry from Nazranna as well. It looks really good when you match your jewelry and outfits together.

Darlings, join us in reliving a new fairytale, a tale of love that will echo through the ages.

Ontario, Canada Pakistani Wedding by Laroque Weddings

Today's tale of love transcends boundaries, where East meets West in a spectacular fusion of cultures at Alex & Ali's wedding. Alex, a radiant Russian beauty, was embraced wholeheartedly by Ali's large, exuberant Pakistani family, marking the beginning of their enchanting journey together. The Whistling Gardens served as the idyllic backdrop for their ceremony, meticulously orchestrated by Cloud 9 Events. As Alex walked down the aisle, the air was perfumed with the scent of bespoke arrangements from In Bloom Flowers. On her wedding day, her cousin-in-law Fatima, from Beaut by Far, worked magic, turning Alex from a Slavic princess into a dazzling Pakistani bride, complemented by the elegant bridal fashion by Zainab Salman, and the heirloom jewelry from the groom's mother whispered stories of love and legacy. Ali, dashing in his attire by Mohsin Naveed Ranjha, stood as a proud groom, his eyes reflecting his love and admiration for Alex. Immediately following the ceremony, the daytime reception was a delight for the senses, with Zauq Live Barbecue serving up delectable delights and Laroque Weddings capturing every precious moment with their lenses.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ali and I met in London, England, on our first day of work at Bain & Co., a consulting firm. Over time, we became close friends. One day, I hosted friends at my house, and Ali seamlessly took on the role of co-host - filling up our friend's glasses and even taking out the trash. The next day, he asked me out, and I said 100% yes.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ali knew how important family is to both of us, so he looked for opportunities to include them in the proposal. The two of us and his brother went to visit my parents in Florida. One evening, we went for a sunset walk on the beach, and Ali surprised me by getting down on one knee! He claimed he had allergies, but I could tell he was tearing up. We all celebrated together that evening.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I picked out my dress with the help of Ali’s mom and sister. I wanted a white dress with a touch of red. I found one at Zainab Salman, but it came with a heavy and expensive velvet dupatta. Luckily, they were able to make a custom dupatta for me that was lighter and a better fit for our outdoor wedding.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Doing activities together - such as going to see venues or trying out tasting menus. The parts we planned together are by far my favorite!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They really liked the outdoor venue - Whistling Gardens is a sprawling garden where guests can go on walks, birds (swans, chickens, and even exotic birds) run wild, and the venue plays a custom fountain show for all the guests. Guests also commented on the food from Zauq. We knew we wanted to have a live barbecue prepared in front of all the guests, and Zauq was fantastic both in terms of the flavor of the food and working with their catering group.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My two favorite moments were grounded in tradition. First was the Arsi Mushaf, when Ali’s family lifted up my head covering, and we saw each other for the first time in the mirror as man and wife. We have the mirror hung up in our home now, and it makes me smile every time I pass it. Second was the Eastern European bread and salt ceremony, where the bride and groom simultaneously took a bite of decorative bread. Whoever takes the biggest bite becomes head of household (me, of course!)

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process and do as much of the planning together as you can. I have equally happy memories of us picking out parts of the wedding as I do of the day itself!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My hair and make-up artist, Fatima from Beauty by Far, did an absolutely fantastic job! I don’t wear a lot of makeup, so I asked her to give me a natural look, and she truly delivered. I felt gorgeous, and my husband couldn’t look away!

Revel in the beauty, the traditions, and the love that shines through in every detail of our features.
