How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mike and I were set up by a mutual friend at school (University of Delaware) almost 10 years ago. We started dating my senior year and then I moved to NYC while Mike stayed in Delaware to complete his master's degree - we were long distance for 2 years and the second Mike moved to NYC, I knew I couldn't imagine being apart from him again!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Mike picked me up from work to grab a drink before we were going to a Kygo concert. Instead of grabbing a drink first we went for a stroll where he proposed in Battery Park. I found out later he was supposed to propose the day after in Central Park where we had one of our first real dates but once he found it was going rain he knew there was no chance of getting me to the park without being suspicious. He also planned a surprise party for our immediate family and our closest friends at Tavern on the Green in Central Park.
 
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 had such wonderful vendors that really supported us in building our dream wedding! When we went to our first appointment with Glamorous Events with my PowerPoint presentation of inspiration for the decor I wanted for all three events, instead of thinking I was crazy they executed it perfectly. Our DJ from BWD events helped us create the perfect playlist to balance Mike's favorite EDM songs with my 90's reggaeton requests all while simultaneously catering to our Punjabi and Jewish guests. Salwa Photography and Unique Visions captured all our favorite moments while making us feel so comfortable with cameras next to us in our most intimate wedding moments. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Mike and I had a #hinjewwedding, instead of blending our Hindu and Jewish wedding ceremonies we had both! So I went the traditional route for both ceremonies; I wore a red lengha for our Hindu ceremony on Friday and a white wedding dress for our Jewish wedding on Saturday.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Being engaged! Realizing we were planning OUR wedding, we truly felt the excitement as we made the wedding of our dreams come to life!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We are still so flattered by all of our guest's compliments - they loved our decor at the Sangeet - we went for traditional bright India - lots of colors, Mendhi stations, a rickshaw to take pictures with, a Bazaar full of bangles and purses. For the Hindu wedding - I could not hear more about how Mike's Baraat and how amazing he looked like an Indian groom on a horse and his dance moves! For the Jewish ceremony and reception our guests loved everything about our venue, Flowerfield, the grounds were stunning and they were blown away by their catering!
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Mike and I snuck out of our reception and took a moment to ourselves to walk outside and admire the party from afar and it was so special to take that minute for just us and to stand back and appreciate all of our friends and family on the dance floor celebrating us!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Try to enjoy being engaged - it all goes by so quickly, it is so easy to get stressed and caught up with the planning process. Mike and I planned specific moments during the process that was just for us - whether it was going to a vendor appointment alone, booking a spa day, or just going for a picnic in Central Park. It is important to remember you are not just planning a wedding, you are getting married!
 
Wait to see what we have prepared for your tomorrow!

Good morning, Maharanis! We have reached the end of this fantastic week, but we are not done yet! We have prepared a phenomenal time for you. So get ready to be amazed by the beauty that surrounded Reashma & Sujith's wedding celebration. This was a glorious celebration, where two different cultures mingle together to celebrate the love union from their favorite ones.

Everything was perfectly trimmed and planned by L&B Events, who took our lovebirds' vision and transformed it into a dream come true! And we cannot forget about the marvelous decoration crafted by House of Dipali, who filled every inch of this celebration with beautiful floral arrangements that left everyone speechless. To conclude this phenomenal time, a fantastic wedding reception was hosted inside the halls of The Villa Borghese, and to turn the gala into an epic party, our friends from DJTM jumped into the stage and played their phenomenal beats, making everyone dance the whole night! Thank heaven we have the talent from The DV Image, who captured all details and created this fantastic gallery. So make sure to visit it. I know that you will be delighted!

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 about planning our wedding by first looking for the perfect venue. My husband's family resides in Long Island, NY and my family resides in Albany, NY. We decided to have the wedding in Poughkeepsie, NY since it was the halfway point between our hometowns. The staff at the Villa Borghese were on board from the get-go. Nothing was too much to ask and they went above and beyond to accommodate our every whim. For the ceremony, I had always wanted to get married in a beautiful, old church with lots of architectural details. Both Sujith and I instantly fell in love with the Reformed Church of Poughkeepsie on sight. Because of the classic design of my dress and the old world style of the church, we decided on an English Garden feel for our ceremony. We had lots of white and blush pink florals accented with greenery throughout the space. For our evening reception, we decided to add black accents to bring more dramatic flair. House of Dipali was responsible for all of our florals and staging. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I remember watching the Royal Wedding in 2018 and falling in love with Meghan Markle's simple, yet elegant wedding gown. I knew right then that I wanted my wedding gown to be as equally timeless. After trying on many dresses, I came to the realization that I may need to go the custom route in order to achieve what I envisioned. I went to Xena's Bridal, a local boutique in my hometown, and I was able to customize an existing gown by Casablanca. My wedding gown ended up being everything I imagined and more!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests loved the Venetian Hour at the end of our wedding.  The Villa Borghese brought out eight tables of desserts from La Deliziosa Bakery and guests were provided with little boxes to take desserts home. There were also sparklers, an ice sculpture, and a Bananas Foster Flambé station. Villa Borghese also provided Gyros and fries for all of our guests as a late night snack on their way out.
 
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The highlight of the night was looking onto the dance floor and seeing all of our friends and family from all over the world crowded onto the dance floor. We felt so blessed and loved at that moment.
 
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.
My cousins and I have choreographed and danced together since we were very young and so I thought it only appropriate that we perform at the reception. All of my bridesmaids joined in and it was such a special part of the evening.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The wedding day is such a blur, but don't forget to take the time to enjoy it! It really does go by in the blink of an eye.

If you want to get more inspiration, visit us tomorrow. We have more for you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
James and I met in Medical School and we started to study together. We started to hang out more and eventually he asked me on a date. After 2 years we had a long-distance relationship and he hated that so much that he moved closed and started to work at the same hospital as me.  When he moved close to me, I knew that he was the person that I will spend the rest of my life with. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted my sangeet, wedding, and reception to be all different according to color and style.  The most difficult part was making sure it was different colors because most of the lehenga in the stores in the USA and India had very similar colors.  But after going to countless stores in 3 weeks we were able to find all my lehngas.  My favorite lehenga is my reception lehenga because I wanted something light color and I wanted to bling out.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part was matching decoration to my lehenga.  I was already excited about my outfits and finding decoration to match it, made it even more special.  I absolutely loved that my florists matched my reception decor and flowers with my outfit. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests loved the music and DJ, but I think they really loved the little entertainments we had during the cocktail hours.  We wanted to make sure that our guests will not be bored so we had a caricature artist, who was amazing and draw cartoons of our guest to take as a remembrance of our wedding.  We also had a photobooth and they brought tons of props for our guests to use.  Lastly, we used prescription pill bottles as a way for people to get their seat numbers.  On the prescription bottle, the label will say their name, a prescription for Love-Agra, the prescription was our wedding date and the table number where they will be seated.  The guest would find their prescription bottle and fill their bottles with candy from the candy bar.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The really special moment that would reply in our mind would be seeing how everyone was enjoying themselves on the dance floor.  One of the biggest worries we had was if the DJ would be able to entertain both our non-Indian and Indian guests since this was an intercultural wedding.  But he did a fabulous job, he played a mix of Indian and non-Indian songs and people really enjoyed it.  Our guests were constantly on the dance floor, and whenever they were about to leave the next song would reel them back onto the dance floor. People that usually leave right after dinner, stayed until the last song.

That is all for today, darlings! Don't forget to join us tomorrow for more

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mayur and I initially dated when we were 15/16! We stayed friends after that for many years and always bumped into each other at random social events. Life happened and we reconnected again after I turned 30 and it was an instant connection. We had the same values and morals and instantly fell back in love again. Our first date was at a vineyard and we knew fate brought us back together for a reason.

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.
Unlike other brides I hated the part of "planning". It was something that gave me a lot of anxiety because I wanted everything to be perfect. I had a vision in my head but had a hard time putting that down on paper. My husband who is a creative genius helped out tremendously in this department and pretty much executed all our ideas to our vendors. As our wedding was going to be on Long Island we had to find venues that could hold the amount of guests we had attending ( 800 +). We went with The Garden city hotel, Hyatt Regency and Crest Hollow country club. My hair and makeup was done by Kanwal Batool and her amazing staff - She has always been a dear friend to me so that was the one thing I was certain about. The Decor and theme we worked with House of Dipali ( Kiriba Floral) and Stylish Events of NY to execute the different visions we had for each event. They were an incredible help. Last but not least our attentive wedding planner Artistic Affairs ( Jharna) was there from the first moment to the last. She really gave us so many unique ideas and helped plan to perfect, we could not have had such beautiful executed events without her and her team!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
All my Indian outfits were custom done by Mom in India. I wore two different sarees for the wedding ceremony and they were custom made on the handloom. My mom actually picked out all the threads and warping and they were weaved by the weavers. Fun fact - I did not try on any of my Indian outfits till the day of each event! I trusted my moms choices and they all came out perfect. My reception outfit was an american white dress covered in swarvoski crystals. My family and I traveled to California to Karoza Bridal to pick it out as I fell in love with their designs on instagram. I initially envisioned myself in a mermaid gown but after spending hours there my mom pulled the perfect princess gown that I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on. Once again I guess its true, Moms know best.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in our wedding was the first dance. My close friend Breanne actually sang our first song and recorded it and sent it to us all the way from Spain. She was unable to make the wedding but its something that my husband and I will cherish forever. We were serenaded with the most beautiful voice as we were dancing ; We truly felt there was no one else in the room as we danced.

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 sangeet night was filled with so much laughter and dancing. We had so many people that performed and took their time out of their life to add something special and memorable that we can remember, we will always hold those dances and songs close to our hearts. I also wanted to do a combination of songs dedicated to my grandmother, Mom & dad and my in laws. It was something I always wanted to do and I am glad I had the opportunity to do that.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't sweat the small things! So many things are going to go wrong and not as you planned but just remember this is the start of the rest of your life with your perfect love and that is what's important.

Stick around, we have tons of inspiration prepared for you tomorrow!
