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

If you were inspired today, wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. To make sure to visit us!

Houston, TX Indian Wedding by Biyani Photography

Hello, ladies! We were dying to come back to you with the magical outcome from Niti & Sudhir's magical wedding festivities. As mentioned in our previous episode, today, we are double featuring this magical event hosted at the Grand Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria, the perfect venue chosen by our lovebirds to tie the knot. Every single guest enjoyed every part of each ceremony. Once the traditional Hindu wedding ceremony concluded, everyone attended the wedding reception performed in a marvelously decorated hall by Mandap Creations, who made sure to create the right environment for this celebration. The lovely duo showed up to the room with such an elegant presence. However, it was Niti, who stole the show and captived everyone with a beautiful Lehenga from VVani by Vani Vats that, along with the marvelous hair and makeup style from Hilda & Co, gave our Maharani a magical look, just as taken out from a fairy tale. Desi Junctions was in charge of turning this moment into a real party, and let me tell you that their beats put everyone on their feet the whole night, turning this into an epic celebration. The delicious food from Bhojan: Mumbai Grill & Catering, the fabulous cake from Supreme Kakes, the emotive speeches, and of course, hundreds of memories were the right ingredients for this marvelous festivity! To relive this moment, make sure to visit our today's gallery and the visual masterpiece created by the enormous talent from Biyani Photography.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my Sudhir on Dil Mil. At the time, he was finishing up his last couple of months of residency in Lubbock, TX while I was working and living in CT. We both knew early on this was it. We texted and FaceTimed almost everyday for 4.5 months before we met for the first time. He came to see me in NYC and even though it was a short weekend trip, we had the best time. Every time we met after that was even better than the last. Sudhir told me early on he knew I was the one for him. I knew it early on too but only admitted it after I saw him with my parents and sisters. Our relationship was always long distance and although it was difficult at times, it forced us to really get to know each other and really helped us build a strong foundation.

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 wedding can be extremely stressful and daunting but every single vendor we worked with was absolutely amazing and made the process and experience so easy and enjoyable for us.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I worked with a designer I found on Instagram (PritiSahni). I always knew I wanted to wear an off white/cream color lehenga with gold embroidery and work. I had a design in mind and Priti made it come to life within my budget.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was learning more about Sudhir and wanting to hear his opinions and making decisions together. If you ask him, he would say food and cake tasting!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests to this day talk about the food! Our caterer Bhojan: Mumbai Grill & Catering went above and beyond for us and our guests really loved every single dish they made.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The one moment that I will never be able to forget was mine and Sudhir’s first look. He looked SO handsome! The next most memorable moment was seeing my parents on the mandap as I walked down the aisle. I still remember all the emotions.

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 wanted to keep decor as simple, clean and elegant as possible. Our decorator, Mandap Creations, was so great in providing us with options that fit our style and budget.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process! And remember to be in the moment the day of. It goes by so fast!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met at a mutual friends wedding and I knew he was the one after dating for a few months and seeing that he loves me for who I am, never asked me to change a thing, and how I could never get enough of his company!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Banff and because Im a fashion blogger i wanted to shoot some couple pics on Lake Louise so I made him pack some fancy clothes, I packed a dress, and when we got to lake Louise his friend was taking our pictures and directed him to “get down on one knee” and I was totally shocked and surprised! He proposed to me at a Dream location and I didn’t even see it coming, my photo shoot turned into a proposal shoot and I still can’t believe it!

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 hired Lavender Pearl as my wedding planners and they did amazing! I shared my vision with Sonia and Arsheen and they set up meetings with vendors who could deliver my vision and they couldn’t have been more perfect. The venue was great, they were so accommodating! My hair and makeup was done by HCBridal&beauty by Affaf and she did sooo good, i looked like myself and felt comfortable all night! My outfits were from all over but my favorite was my reception look from Republic Womenswear in Lahore, all done through WhatsApp which I talk about on my blog!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I searched and searched for inspiration on Pinterest and found a picture where I fell in love with the outfit, I found the designer and they remade it for me with some changes and it was perfect.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The catering tastings & outfit planning!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
From what they say, they loved the decor, my clothes, the food, and how organized it all was.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There’s a few - my first look with Zain, my bridesmaids pictures, Zain & I’s first dance, & at the end of the night finally being able to call eachother husband and wife.

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.
For the mehndi, I had lots and lots of color and me and Zain wore white and gold to stand out from the colorful decor! The reception was really classy, blush pinks and gold with champagne, all matching my outfit. The dances were my favorite, so well thought out and all my best friends participated and I am so glad they made me do a surprise dance for Zain because it was so much fun!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Whatever you do, don’t stress out! It’ll all be perfect on your big day, just aim to be happy and it’ll show on your face on stage and you’ll glow!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My jewelry was all from Diamonds Unlimited, I got it custom made for my outfit and could not have been more In love! I shared the entire process on my blog - http://www.fatimaaqil.com/ & y’all can read all the questions I’ve answered there :)

 

If you was inspired today. Wait to see what we have prepared tomorrow. So stay tune!
