How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Nikhil and I met 10 years before we got married, at Wayne State University, in the heart of Detroit. We were neighbors in the dorm and first met on the elevator. I noticed Nikhil was carrying a biology lab book and mentioned that I need to buy one of those too, and he immediately offered me his, and said that he had an extra one. I stepped in his room to grab the book and was so impressed with how clean he kept his room, and that's when I knew he was the one! Haha just kidding! We quickly became best friends and spent so much time together between our classes, studying, and doing homework. We danced together on the Wayne State Raas team, ate countless meals together at the dining halls, and ignited a passion for traveling during our long walks around the city.
 
Nikhil has been my personal hype man and always encouraged and supported me throughout my years of medical training. He stands by my side and empowers me to be the absolute best version of myself. Whenever I'm with Nikhil, we laugh until our bellies hurt, I forget all of my worries, and seeing him makes my soul light up.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We went to Thailand in June 2018. It was a medical school graduation gift to me from Nikhil. He told me we had to go to Thailand and nowhere else because there were elephants there and of course how could I say anything but yes to that! After all, elephants are my favorite animal and it has always been a dream of mine to meet one of these majestic beasts.
 
It was exactly halfway through our trip. June 6th, 2018. We woke up super early and got ready just like every other day so far on the trip. But this day was different. This was the day I would get to spend the day playing with elephants and taking care of them! I was ecstatic to say the least.
 
I couldn't figure out the perfect outfit to wear, so he gave me one of his sweaters to wear. Luckily I got my nails done the night before because I insisted that my nails needed to look cute for the elephants! We got to the elephant sanctuary and I didn't realize a group of wild animals could make me this happy. Little did I know, I was about to become exponentially happier.
 
I was playing with two baby elephants when I heard "hey Navya..." I turned around and saw Nikhil down on one knee. I didn't really hear anything else he said after that (don't worry we have it captured on video). Of course I said yes and we shared the rest of our day with those glorious beasts that were part of the proposal.
 
We called our family that evening and I found out that Nikhil went to my parents house before our trip to ask their permission to marry me! He made sure I was out of the house by asking me to go shopping for our trip and he knew this would keep me out of the house for a few hours. Haha he knows me so well!
 
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 wanted a very simple and elegant wedding ceremony so we could keep the focus on the main event of the day- getting married! We designed a custom monogram/logo together and had a custom vinyl runner made with it. We also had take away bags printed with this monogram.
 
We all know Indian wedding ceremonies can be long, so we made a fun wedding program with a crossword puzzle on it. The clues were questions about Nikhil and I and all of our guests had so much fun figuring out the answers!
 
Nikhil and I collect ornaments from each new place we visit, so we wanted to give our wedding guests a Detroit ornament to commemorate the beginning of our journey! City Bird had the best wooden ornaments custom made for us and they were the perfect take away gift!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Nikhil and I went to India and went to countless stores to try on all the dresses! Each dress I wore, Nikhil would ask me how I felt in it and then he would tell me if he liked the dress or not. I had no idea what color dress I wanted, but I was definitely leaning towards a lighter color- because I love all things light, bright and airy! However, every time I tried on a light colored lengha, I was not impressed and did not feel special. I realized that I loved the way jewel tones looked on me and shifted my entire focus for the dress search. After several days of not finding "the one," I finally found a store that had the fabric types and dress styles that I loved. I tried on THE dress and immediately fell in love with it, and so did Nikhil!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Right after we got engaged, I moved across the country and started my medical residency. Busy with work and living in another state made wedding planning a bit of a challenge but my sweet husband made the entire process a breeze for me. Although we were only able to see each other a handful of times over that year, we became closer than ever!
 
I spent my evenings planning and designing each event, and then I would convey my thoughts to Nikhil over a phone call. I would find a list of vendors that I thought would be suitable for us, and Nikhil would set up meetings and go to visit each one of them, and facetime me each time. He coordinated with both of our families, arranged all the taste testings, vendor meetings, and went to every meeting prepared with a document with all of the details I asked for.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
To this day, over one year later, our guests continue to talk about the food at our wedding. We couldn't be happier because food is what makes both of us the happiest, so we are so pleased that our family and friends thought that the food at our wedding was as great as we hoped it would be.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Although we planned to do a first look, we didn't have the chance to do one. The first time we saw each other was at the mandap, and I will never forget the look on Nikhil's face when he saw me. That was the moment that we both realized that we finally get to marry each other and we were so excited.
 
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.
The mehendi was an intimate event with close friends and family hosted in our parents backyard. My decor inspiration came from the handwritten notes that Nikhil would fold into origami paper cranes and give to me back in college. I showed him my vision and he and his family hand made hundreds of paper cranes to make it come to life!
 
We wanted the sangeet to be all about dancing and food, so we had a very colorful and dance oriented street fair themed event. We really wanted authentic Indian street vendor style food and Taste of India Suvai made our wishes come true with live food stations. Our guests spent the entire night dancing away and snuck away to the outdoor food stations whenever they had the chance.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Have fun planning and enjoy the whole process, it'll be over before you know it! Don't stress about the little things and keep your eye on the big picture because no one will know about those little details except for you! Pick vendors that you can get along with and communication is key!
 
It can be hard with Indian weddings to plan everything the way you want it, because traditions, culture, and family is such a big part of it. But, find a way to make your vision work while keeping those things in mind. Work with your family to see how you can incorporate your flair while keeping in mind some of the more traditional elements.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Thank you to all of our vendors who made our wedding weekend so special and memorable!

That is all for today, darlings! Make sure to join us tomorrow for more.

Carrollton, TX Indian Wedding by Vek Photo

Happy Tuesday, ladies! Get ready to be amazed by all the beauty surrounding Ziyana & Prem's big wedding bash! If the name of this lovely couple sounds familiar, that's because their wedding already featured in our Video Blog thanks to the fantastic film produced by Aria Cinema Films. And we loved this celebration so much that we couldn't wait to share the fabulous shots by Vek Photo with you. So, let's jump right into it! Right off the bat, we have to say that we love every moment of this fascinating event! From the solemn ceremony at the Sri Guruvayurappan Temple of Dallas to the grand reception party enlivened by DJ Riz Entertainment, everything was perfect. But we are not surprised that everything turned out to be this perfect as Shelley K Events orchestrated this celebration down to the smallest detail. The decor was in charge of Alpha Décor, who delivered nothing ut perfection, setting the mood for the different events and ceremonies. There was so much beauty everywhere, but nothing compared to the enchanting look of our blushing Maharani Ziyana. From her traditional and vibrant attires draped and tied by JJ Drapes, all the way to the fabulous makeup and hairstyle designed by Ishnae & Co, everything was drop-dead gorgeous. And we particularly loved the artistic Mehndi by Samira's Henna Designs. It added an extra touch of traditional flair to an already fantastic look! For more awesome shots of this magical wedding celebration, head into our gallery. You'll get tons of inspiring ideas to start planning your wedding!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband on Dil Mil. He was living in NY at the time and we matched and talked for a bit and the conversation died down. Then months later we reconnected and started talking again. He flew down to Dallas to see me and it’s been history since.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
So every time he came to Dallas he took me to a random restaurant for date night. He never told me where we were going but he would always tell me how to dress. In October 2018 he told me he’s going to take me to a fancy restaurant and he told me to dress up. I’m extra so he didn’t have to tell me twice. I texted my friend Chippi a dress that I found and she straight up said it’s ugly. She made me change into something else. You’d think I would have some idea now but nope. So I finally wore the outfit chippi agreed on. He took me to reunion tower and after dinner he told me let’s go up and see the view. I was like no I don’t want to mess up my hair but he insisted that we do. Me being the clueless person I am was annoyed and said ok fine but I would be mad if I messed up my hair. We went up there and when he went down on one knee I said omg yes and tried to snatch the ring from him. I freaked out for sure and before he could ask I kept saying yes. He finally asked in between my screaming and my brother, his sister and her husband, my best friend, Prem’s best friend and his wife, my cousins and most of my friends flew in to surprise me. I was in so much shock I didn’t even know what was going on for a while. When I finally came to my senses I freaked out again because everyone was there. It was a surprise proposal for sure. He did good
 
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 was the most stressful part. I had a great planner and if it wasn’t for Shelley I would’ve been lost. All my vendors were so great and I can’t say enough things about them. I knew Riz before the wedding and one of the first people I called was Riz and he was super helpful. For makeup I was super picky and I went with Ishnae and omg they’re the sweetest people you’ll meet. They book up so quick and I literally booked them before I booked my venue. For decor we went with alpha and I was blown away when I walked into my reception hall because they went above and beyond. We picked Vinnie from VEK photo for photos and he’s very well known and he helped us get our videographer Ali from Aria. Ali and Vinnie are definitely considered the A team.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for wedding shopping. I got a South Indian Saree for the wedding and that was all my mom. She helped me pick it out. The reception lehnga was a huge mess since I picked it out from India. I got it from India but after I got back home I hated it. A few weeks before the wedding I found this Instagram page named mayasboutique and I got in touch with the owner Jenny and she helped me pick out my reception lehnga. It was so pretty and Jenny was super helpful. I wanted to stay away from red for reception but this lehnga was so pretty I ended up wearing red. I also ended up getting my mehndi outfit from her. My whole decor was peach and gold. The bridesmaids wore peach lehnga and the groomsmen wore peach tie and socks.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part definitely have to be shopping. I had so much fun picking out outfits for the bridesmaids. The bridesmaids had two outfits. They wore traditional kasavu Saree and jewelry for the ceremony and for reception they switched to a lehnga. I custom made the lehnga in India and it was the best. I picked out the fabric and stitched the outfits for them. I also picked out their jewelry and it was honestly so much fun. For ceremony the groomsmen wore peach kurta with mundu and they all looked super traditional and for reception they wore a suit that my husband picked out. We had our little ring beaters wear matching mundu and kurta with the groomsmen which was so cute. The junior bridesmaids wore red outfit to match with the bridesmaids blouse in the morning. Dressing up the bridal party was my most favorite part about the wedding for sure.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
DJ! Everyone loved Riz and Freddy. They kept the crowd entertained all night. Prem’s friends from NY raved about how great the DJ was. Everyone raved about the food too. My family friend Sunny uncle from India garden catered and everyone kept saying how great the food was. I’ve known sunny uncle since I was a kid and he went above and beyond for us. Also, we had a taco truck to end the night and everyone kept saying how that was something different they’ve never seen before.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The actual ceremony part for sure. It was something special for both of us and we loved how traditional it was. Prem wrote me a letter and I didn’t expect to cry so much as I did. It was so sweet and I definitely messed up my makeup.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress. Everything would be ok. Nobody is going to remember the small details and everyone is going to remember how happy you were. Hire a planner!! Don’t cut cost on that please. I was happy because the day of my wedding because I knew “Shelley got it”
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I’m a huge fan of Disney movies. When we started dating we used to love watching beauty and the beast. I told my henna artist Samira who is very very talented that I love the movie. She actually drew beauty and the beast on my henna. Everyone who saw it was amazed by how perfect it was.

Please visit us tomorrow, we have something special prepared just for you!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ravi in college over summer session in 2008.  We were introduced by a mutual friend who suggested we should walk together to class since we were both heading in the same direction on campus at the same time every day. We actually didn’t get along at all at first, but that eventually changed.  We ended up making "deals" with each other.  I’d have a shopping companion at the mall and in turn, he’d have a partner to go to the theaters to watch ‘The Dark Knight’ again and again (3 times to be exact).  During one of our shopping trips, he saw me fall in love with a pair of peacock earrings which I didn’t end up buying. On this same day, I mistakenly purchased two left feet red heels from a last sale store.  He noticed all of this and bought me those earrings and red heels (a right and left) for my birthday.  I was absolutely floored that he paid such close attention to these details.  Fast forward to 2014 he proposed to me and after a 5-year engagement we FINALLY got married on October 2019.  We learned to speed up our timeline and are due with a baby boy in November 2020.  I met Ravi when I wasn’t even looking, but now I can’t stop looking at and admiring the beautiful life we made together.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think what people loved the most was the venue.  We had searched for months both online and in person with multiple flights back and forth from Philly to Charleston.  At one point, we started feeling defeated because we felt as though we were running out of options. On a day that we were set to return back to Philadelphia, we decided to check out Wild Dunes on a whim just a few hours before our flight and fell in love with it.  We knew if we were asking our friends and family to come all the way to South Carolina from the Northeast, we wanted it to be a vacation for them.  Our guests spent a few days extra exploring downtown Charleston, playing golf at the resort, and enjoying the beach.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I lost my grandmother to cancer in 2017.  While she was sick, she would always say that she’d make it long enough to be at our wedding.  Unfortunately, the cancer took her after a 2-year battle and she wasn’t able to see our wedding.  It hurt not having her there for our most special day.  She and my grandfather played such an integral part in my life that I felt it was important to have them play a big part in my wedding.  My grandfather walked me down the aisle and my grandmother's picture had the best seat in the house.
 
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 both wanted a destination wedding, but due to some concerns of close family members not being able to attend, we decided on a resort near my hometown.  We still wanted to incorporate a "tropical" vibe, so our mandap was made of tropical flowers and leaves and our aisle was lined with pineapples.  Our cocktail hour was located in a “boardwalk” setting just off the beach, with a beautiful sunset view of the ocean. Cocktail hour also featured a local steel drum band to entertain our guests.

If we inspired you today, you can't miss what we have prepared for you tomorrow. So stick around!
