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!

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.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Ramzi and I met in high school through mutual friends. We were friends for a long time and I'm not sure when I realized when he was the one, the realization felt almost immediately but it also felt like it wasn't anything new that I didn't already deep down know.
In high school as my friend he celebrated almost everything that made me myself, which made him my best friend. He knew nothing of bollywood movies, but because I was so into them he would listen to me rant about them and watch movies on his own time. He bought me my own DVD copy of my favorite movie DDLJ when I was a junior in high school. He also would listen to my obsession with Harry Potter and one day slipped a Hogwarts embossed letter in my locker of my 'delayed' Hogwarts acceptance letter, with the whole first year school supply list attached (AND it was all accurate). He also hates Harry Potter.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I've always wanted to wear traditional red for my wedding. Growing up I used to try on my moms wedding dress and I loved the thread work, zardozi, and pearl work all over the lengha and dupatta. The dress was actually gifted to my mom by my dad and his parents because a couple of weeks before their wedding, the wedding dress my mom originally picked was lost during delivery and she never received it. The wedding dress from then on was always the dress my late grandparents chose.
Months into my wedding shopping, I realized I was basically looking for my moms exact wedding dress. I decided I wanted to wear her lengha and readjust the blouse so it wasn't 80s themed anymore. I paired with it her Nikkah dupatta as my shawl. The dress is very reminiscent of traditional South Asian bridalwear, and I loved how it felt as relevant to me as it did to my mom almost 30 years ago.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The two biggest surprises from my wedding is what still replays in my mind, which was my husbands' surprise performance on the mehndi and the dabke teams on the reception. I knew my friends and family were performing at the mehndi, but i didn't realize Ramzi (who is a very shy person) would  be getting up and performing a quick dance to a song from one my my all time favorite movies, Mehndi laga ke rakhna from DDLJ. To this day I still watch the performance and i'm stunned how much effort was put in by everyone and remember how absolutely shocked & heartwarming it was to see Ramzi perform.
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 really enjoyed bringing together both my Pakistani culture and my husbands Palestinian culture into the events. Traditionally, Pakistani Mehndi's are treated basically as a Sangeet. I really enjoyed planning a very Lahori feel to the mehndi, from the charpai's, a wooden swing on stage, a bicycle rickshaw for the guests to take pics with, a live jalebi and pani puri station, and more. Finding places  that could accommodate that look and feel was fun.
A day before the mehndi we had a henna party which was the actual application day and is an event that is in the Palestinian culture. I wore a traditional Palestinian dress with my applied mehndi. I wore the headpiece of his families culture which had gold coins - and because my fathers side of the family is Pathan I wore the traditional Afghani  choker. The women in his family did traditional chants while the women of my family played the dholki and the men in his played the saz in my parents house. It was very intimate with a beautiful blend of both our cultures.
For the reception though, we  created this almost fusion theme.  The favors were little arabic inspired bowl with lid that goes along with a Turkish tea set with a tassel and our names written in arabic. The food was both Pakistani, however we picked certain dishes which were more Persian influenced. The decor was simple with red roses and tea lights on each table and the stage was lit with candles as a backdrop with a flower wall and golden lanterns. The surprise to me were the dabke performances - which really made the event and really celebrated my husband's culture. They came in as a procession, with drums and chants and later in the evening performed and brought everyone to join in on the dabke. Which was new and exciting for my family as we'd never experienced it before. 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Honestly, picking out the jewelry was the best part. I wanted to go all out with traditional pieces, because this was probably the only time I could justify wearing so many bold statement pieces. I picked each piece of jewelry I wore separately- which ended up being treasure hunt at desi melas around Northern VA to Jersey, Dubai and online. I found my jhoomar first and loved it so much I based my whole bridal set around that jhoomar. In Dubai, the clerk at the store laughed at me while I was looking for the choker and said it was like I was trying to 'buy a house that match a pair of drapes'. In the end though I loved every single piece and they all come with their own story. The nath on the reception day was a hard find, there is only a limited amount of styles for nose rings for actual pierced noses; and for the nose ring I wanted to go all out - like Deepika's Padmavati nose ring meets Amrita Singh's wedding.
I wanted very timed pieces on both the mehndi and the reception - from the 7-tiered rani haar on the reception to the mughal inspired rings on my mehndi. Which I found in a small Afghan souk in Dubai.

Wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. So stick around!
