How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Grey and I met in college when we were both in Concert choir and an a cappella group together. We were friends for years and I always say that is the foundation of our friendship. A few months after college we started officially dating and it was definitely work with me applying for medical school, him pursuing the military, and both of us living in separate cities. I think I knew he was “the one” when he left for basic training for 4 months. We were only able to talk twice on the phone during that time but we wrote letters to each other to keep in touch. I knew then that I never wanted to be without him again for the rest of my life!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I was doing my surgery acting internship at UAB on Cinco De Mayo. My friend told me that her parents wanted to take us out for her pharmacy school graduation so as soon as I got done at the hospital I had intentions to rush home to change. I may have made a detour to get margaritas (because it was Cinco De Mayo)! Of course I insisted on napping when I got back to my apartment but Grey kept his cool the whole time. When we finally got to the restaurant, we went out to this beautiful back patio and that’s when he proposed! What was so special was that my family, his family, and a couple of my close friends were all hiding in the back patio and came out to surprise me! He even had my friends bring me things to do my nails because I couldn’t have my nails done on my surgery rotation. He truly thought of everything.
 
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.
My venue was Von Braun Civic Center in Huntsville, Alabama. I had been to so many weddings here growing up that it was surreal to see how it was transformed into my vision of my special day.
All of my Indian outfits were purchased during a December trip to India. We shopped in Kolkata, Delhi, and Mumbai. The experience was so amazing and my husband actually came with us for a bit of the trip and got to see India for the first time! I was able to hand pick and alter or design all of my outfits which was very special.
My makeup artist was Maleigh McCloy who is based out of my hometown of Madison, Al. I stumbled upon Maleigh's makeup page on Instagram and immediately saw the talent she had for creating stunning makeup looks. She did my makeup for my engagement party and it was FLAWLESS. I knew she would be the perfect choice for my wedding. She managed to pull off 4 separate looks for the weekend with absolute perfection in addition helping out with some of my family's makeup as well.
My hair was by Gwyneth Morales based out of Birmingham, Al. I have been going to Gwyn for a few years now to get my hair cut and colored so I knew she would be someone I could 100% trust with my hair for my wedding. She went ABOVE AND BEYOND for my wedding weekend. We had multiple trials so she could get used to the jewelry and other accessories. She even had her mom sew in clips to my wedding dupatta so it would not fall off my head! I truly was so lucky to have her as my hair stylist.
My decor was done by Mital Dodhia with Myar Decor. Mital and I immediately clicked when we realized we both had similar taste for decor. Simple, elegant, traditional, with a contemporary twist. Her ideas were more than I could have ever even dreamed of. She flawlessly executed transitioning between the American ceremony and the more traditional Indian ceremonies. Her team was even able to build me a custom bar for my backyard Sangeet. She created the absolute perfect backdrop for the best weekend ever!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My bridal dress was from David's bridal in Birmingham. I knew that I wanted to get somethings simple and elegant that would juxtapose well against the lavish Indian outfits and that would not break the bank (as I would only be wearing it for our morning ceremony). I fell in love with a v-neck, A-line dress that had POCKETS! It made me feel so beautiful and confident!
My Hindu ceremony wedding dress was from Kolkata. IBengali brides traditionally wear red Banarasi saris for their ceremonies.I had always wanted to wear a lehenga for my wedding and I was able to find fabric that was beaded in a Banarasi print which I made into my lehenga. I wanted my blouse to be simple so that my jewelry would stand out. The designers in Kolkata were able to dye the fabric to the perfect red color and make my dream lehenga come to life!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the process was having my whole family help with all aspects of the wedding. From designing our signs, to choreographing for the sangeet, my family and close family friends were so incredibly helpful. There were times that I was feeling very overwhelmed because in addition to planning a wedding I was also applying and matching into residency, having to prepare to move to a different state, and having to buy a house to live in for the next 5 years while I'm in residency. My family did everything they could to help my out when I needed it. I also loved getting to celebrate our engagement and bridal showers with my aunties and uncles!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We were so lucky to hear so many compliments about things that people enjoyed about the wedding. People LOVED the food from Kabobish. They went above and beyond to provide an amazing menu for us. I also have heard so many compliments about the decor! A lot of future brides have reached out to me and I have recommended Myar decor whole heatedly to them!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
It is so hard to pick just one. A truly special moment was getting to enjoy the Sangeet performances. Seeing all the hard work my aunties, uncles, family members, and friends put into dancing and singing still brings so much joy into my heart. I am so lucky to have such a loving community who would work so hard to make my sangeet unforgettable. An especially sentimental moment was when my Dad surprised me bringing me on stage to sing Akele Hum Akele Tum with him. This was a song that I sang with him when I was 3 years old on stage for the first time. We sang the song after the video of the original performance played for everyone. I barely made it through the song and definitely shed some tears along the way, but it made for such a perfect memory of that night!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process!! Wedding blues after your wedding is over is a real thing. It is so easy to get consumed with things that don't go right or with hitting deadlines and making decisions that you lose sight of the big picture. You will remember your wedding day forever,  but the memories of planning the wedding are such a huge part of the memories you will create. Surround yourself with supportive people and have the best time!!

That is all for today! Have an awesome day, and don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!

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!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Anthony through a mutual friend. She invited me to his sisters birthday party. I didnt want to go but im glad I did. It took a long time for us to really become friends really about 1 year. He helped me through some tough times and we became best friends. We liked  the same things and did everything together. Soon I couldnt imagine life without him. I knew very early on that he was different and we would be together.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We didnt have a traditional proposal. I wanted to be more modern and join together mutually. We took engagement photos and announced our engagement. He surprised me with a rare pink sapphire "padparadscha" ring on the day of my bridal shower. My ring is unique and different like me. I cried all of my makeup off before I even got to my shower.

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 destination wedding is difficult for a type A personality or I think for any bride. I couldnt have done it without my wedding travel agents and wedding planner Heather at Modern Destination Weddings. This is hands down the best decision I made. My own little team helped me with planning every little detail. They answered all my questions and helped me secure my venue and all arrangements for what we envisioned on our day. We wanted a very relaxed, fun, vacation vibe with good food and a party atmosphere. We chose to have our wedding at moon palace in ocho rios jamaica. We had a two day wedding. Friday was the indian ceremony and Saturday was the Christian ceremony. We had a reception and after party both nights!!  Traditional red and orange was my color scheme for the Indian day and white and pink was our color scheme for our American day. We definitely had some unique/ different approach. I didnt want too many decorations and wanted to let the beauty of the island show for itself. We had custom bride and groom drinks. I didnt want traditional bouquets for the bridesmaids so I opted for corsages instead. Being a bridesmaid 2 times and a maid of honor the year before I find bouquets exhausting to carry around and then they really just get wasted at the end, especially if you cant take them home. Having the right makeup and hair was super important to me, I flew in my makeup artist from NY @beautybytamanna . I LOVED the way both of my looks came out. My makeup lasted all day even in the Jamaica heat.  I feel like my jewelry played a very important part in bringing the looks to life. I loved my jewelry for both days and spent lots of time picking the right pieces.
My indian jewelry was from om sons  and my headpiece and earrings were from @bridalstylesboutique

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I saved so many pictures of styles I liked on Instagram and pinterest. For a tropical wedding I had initially wanted a.pink lengha but my MOM insisted on traditional red. I went with a compromise to make my mom happy and wore a red custom lengha for my ceremony and a pink lengha from @rehanasexclusivedesigns for the reception. I am so happy that I followed my moms advice because I felt like a bride in my red lengha. My lenghas both had floral motifs with crystal flowers.  I went shopping with my family first to get ideas and try on. I took my mom, my sister in law and my musee. We shopped for both indian wear and a white dress. But in the end when I was ready with my decision I went only with my mom to buy my final choice.
For my white dress I  chose an eve of milady gown which was from @bridalreflectionsny  It had just the right amount of beading and bling, lots of lace in a floral pattern a train and an illusion neckline.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I feel like I had people who were really helping me achieve everything I wanted for my special day. The most enjoyable part for me was creating those special details for my guests (like welcome bags) with things that they could enjoy and also bringing our own personality and spin to our wedding. I started planning waaayyy in advanced and I think thats one of the most helpful things you can do as a bride! You wont be stressed for time.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We had a very emotional american ceremony on day 2. Everyone was crying when I walked down the aisle. When i looked up as we were saying our vows all my guests and bridal party were crying. (Including the groomsmen)

We accomplished the atmosphere we wanted for our wedding. We had such a fun time both nights at our after party at the club noir in which we had the vip section. The groomsmen showered the groom with champagne and dare I day "it was lit".

We wanted it to be a mini vacation for our guests as well and I saw many hanging out at the pool and taking advantage of the activites at the resort. Many of my family did a dolphin experience and tried out the wave rider. We were there for halloween a day before our wedding and the resort even had a haunted house and some.halloween activities!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Both of our ceremonies were verry special to me. The emotion and the joy of seeing all of our family there to support us. The weather was perfect and it was everything and more. We lived in the moment to enjoy every possible thing ( except the food, its true you never get to enjoy your food the day of the wedding)

My maid of honor (my cousin) was the best. She literally fed me in between pictures and ceremony and reception to make sure I ate something. It wad hard to eat with the jewelry, the makeup and of course the nerves.

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.
Its really important to have a Pandit that is engaging and that can carry out your ceremony the way you envision. We had lots of guests who weren't of Indian descent and our Pandit did a fantastic job explaining all the traditions. He was very light hearted and funny. Everyone said the groom and I were so serious lol maybe we were too nervous. But many of my guests complimented us on how great they thought the ceremony/Pandit was.

My cousins did a surprise traditional dance for us which had all my favorite songs. Usually I am the one who dances at all the weddings and occasions so it was a nice surprise.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
FOLLOW YOUR HEART. at the end of the day its what makes you and your groom happy.
Leave lots of time to plan will definitely help with stress levels.
Communication and common ground. The bride gets what the bride wants but its also about the groom too so its important to make decisions together.
Remember why you are getting married and that its about love. One the day of your wedding everything might not go as planned but enjoy in the moment and forget about the rest !

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehndi was done at home here in NY by @hennaforallny. Monita is amazingly sweet and very talented. We did it late on  tuesday night before a flight early Wednesday morning. I tried to keep it on and warm for the longest possible time. The stain was rich and dark and lasted way after my wedding which was 3 days after I had it done.
I did alot of online ordering and found most if not all my vendors on Instagram.
I made a personalized guestbook with shutterfly my absolute go to design family album's.
I ordered my bridesmaids corsages and groomsmen boutineers from etsy
I also had a snapchat geofilter made for us from etsy. We weren't able to use it in Jamaica so I took the image and make custom drink signage for our signature drinks.

 

Make sure to join us tomorrow for another fantastic love story!
