How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
My Husband and I met when we were in College through friends. The first time I met him I offered to drop him back off at work and as I was making a left turn onto the intersection, my car drove over the curb and people started honking at us. It was SO embarrassing! I just met this cute guy & I already made a fool of myself! But he was just so calm through it all and made sure I was okay and I was safe. 
 
Funny enough a while later I had a dream that I was going to marry a man whose name started with the letter S and Samir was the only guy that popped in my mind. I just knew he was the one for me no matter what. Fast forward to 2018 and I married the one whose name started with an S in my dream. :) 
 
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 absolutely LOVE planning events for other people in my life. So when it was finally my turn, I knew exactly what I wanted and how I envisioned this day to go. I know there's plenty of horror stories out there when the Bride and her mom start planning but to be honest I was the lucky one. My mom is my best friend and having her plan EVERY detail with me was a blessing. Yes, we clashed very few times but that's normal when the stress is high. 
 
I couldn't imagine planning this wedding without my mom! Honestly, she's the reason I had such a great experience. As soon as I got engaged, we immediately started booking our vendors. I started with the vendors I 110% knew I wanted to be a part of my team. (Hair, Makeup, DJ) 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I got all of my outfits from India. I didn't know exactly which color I wanted but I knew for sure that I did NOT want a typical red lehenga. For some reason, it just did not feel like me. I knew I wanted a long train on the back of my lehenga which not many dresses had. So what did we do? We got it custom made and added it to my lehenga. (The beauty of purchasing from India!) I also knew the overall theme of my wedding day, I wanted it to be very regal, rich and traditional. That really helps in narrowing down your options. 
 
The boutiques show you countless outfits, styles, colors, patterns. It's ridiculously hard to choose. Try on your top 5-10 from each boutique that fit your theme. Take pictures, walk around in it and make sure you SIT in those dresses to see how you feel. Don't be shy to ask if you can change the style of the outfit to your needs. My reception dress was a two piece and I had them turn it into a gown and add a belt at the waist!
 
Lucky for me, we went to 3-4 boutiques in Bombay. Tried on numerous dresses but in the end, I found my wedding dress on DAY 1 of shopping!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable process was being able to plan everything with my mom, best friend, and aunts! They truly made it such a fun experience. I mean what best friend flies to INDIA with you just to shop for your outfits?! Cherishing the smallest moments with my mom & dad and my family was the most enjoyable part. 
 
Planning the colors, themes, photo shoots, and being pampered by everyone was so much fun! It does become a very emotional time where all you want to do is be with your family but it helps to travel if you can! I went on 2-4 trips with my bestie during the year and it was so great to unplug a few times during the planning process to regroup my thoughts and calm my anxiety!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Stay CALM. I know everyone says that and I didn't know how to until it was my turn. 
 
Start with the vendors you absolutely KNOW you want for your wedding. Chances are they'll get booked very quickly! 
 
On my wedding day, I had my jitters of course but I had my family pick up some yummy chick fil a and I made sure I was well fed. No one wants a HUNGRY bride. :)  
 
Honestly, every inspiration picture I saved on Instagram, Pinterest, on my phone, it all went out the window when I was shopping for my dresses. Keep an OPEN mind. Especially for an Indian/Pakistani Bride when you go back to India/Pakistan to shop, there are SO many styles and options presented to you. 
 
Try them ALL on (unless you know which dress is a hard no!). Take LOTS of pictures and you don't have to decide on the first day. Take the pampering in and enjoy the trial sessions. Come back the next day and try on those SAME dresses you loved the first day and see how you feel in it the next day. 

Until next time, Maharanis!

Mississauga, ON Indian Wedding by Strokes Photography

My heart is exploding with joy as I peruse through the wonderful Indian wedding celebration honoring Maharani Aditi and Pral, captured by the oh so talented, Strokes Photography. The talented décor team brought the gardens of the outdoors in with a gorgeous floral mandap overflowing with pastel garnishment orchestrated by Wedding Décor. I love mandaps that are not overly complicated because I feel it takes away from our Maharani! The bride walked down the petal-filled pathway and has never looked back! The series of lighting draped above the venue made for a romantic effect, designed by Nspire SoundSee some of my favorite images down by and peruse through the gallery for more Indian wedding inspiration!

Love is in bloom with today's exciting feature honoring Aditi and Pral. If you are seeking garden lush inspiration, look no further! Canada has always been on my bucket list for places to visit. But, these incredible images by Strokes Photography has pushed that desire to my top ten list. There are some weddings that land on the desk that just whisks me away to cultural delight! And, Aditi and Pral's splendid soiree is full of all the charming moments my little heart could handle.

Garden City, NY Indian Wedding by Elizabeth Tsung Photo

Every bride deserves to feel like a star on her big day. I celebrate the very last celebration honoring the love between Natasha and Fayzan in today's very special feature. One of the celebrated occasions was the Midas touch inspired walima. Makeup artist SV Bridal Concepts by Sanjana Vaswani ensured that Maharani Natasha looked beautiful from every angle of Elizabeth Tsung Photo's lens. The bride's trousseau was vintage inspired yet maintained that contemporary feel that I have come to love. Artful henna by Mehndikalogie added that extra flair. Guests hit the dance floor with Platinum Booths on the sound stage to a lit up venue that was covered with sheer elegance by Pedestals! A personal favorite was the copious blooms of flora and fauna on the sweetheart stage. In our gallery, I have all the tender moments!
