How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
He is a pilot and i work in an IT firm, i was flying to california to see my sister for holidays that's when my mom sent me his bio data. We met after that and the rest is history.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Best proposal ever, he was going to take me around new york city in those small planes and he was going to fly. That morning he made some excuse and he told me to go, i didn't want to go without him but he was adamant. His friend was going to take me around now, we were doing the pre-checks on the runway, and suddenly I saw him . I got happy thinking that he is coming with me now.All of a sudden I heard bollywood music and he was bending on one knee, i came out and I saw all my friends, my sister and everyone standing in the back with the will you marry me sign. It started raining when i said yes.

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 always wanted all the events at one place, so I was looking for a venue that had multiple locations  for different ceremonies and also we had a hotel upstairs so it was convenient for all guests to stay in. When I saw Sheraton for the first time, I was in love with the beautiful chandelier all over and all the modern vibes. They had a beautiful outdoor location where we did our wedding ceremony under the sun.
For me the decor was the most important thing because it can definitely add an extra wow factor to the place. Weddingdesign & Decor team were perfect. We chose beautiful fresh flowers décor for our wedding ceremony and for reception we did a completely different look. Royal blue theme with hint of gold. Our guests loved both the decor because it was so different from each other.
For my Hair & Makeup I hired  Dawn & Marisa, They did my makeup & hair at my SIL's wedding. I didn't even think twice before booking them. Marissa did an amazing job with all my looks, the makeup was so fresh and clean. I showed Dawn exactly what i wanted with my hair, different hairstyle for each events. Everyone loved it. They are the best.
As our wedding planner we hired Detailed Affairs team , literally best decision ever. They were on point starting from vendor meetings, walkthrough. They literally took care of everything.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always want to wear red on my wedding day but i was looking for something unique. Because of the pandemic i was not able to go to India for my wedding shopping, so i shopped all the outfits online including jewelry for all events. When i saw the video out of my wedding outfit for the first, i was in love with the outfit. It was exactly what i wanted  , gorgeous and unique.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning a wedding during pandemic is STRESSFUL !!! I planned everything from here as India was under strict lockdown, got all my pre-events, wedding & reception outfits online. I also got all my Jewelry for all events online. I used to be on calls & video calls with all the vendors until 2-3 am everyday. Instagram was a savior, I used to look for different designers, outfits, and all trending styles 24*7. Funny part , now I get a message that my screen time has reduced  by 60% post wedding LOL. The best part after all the stress is looking at everything coming together, trust me best feeling ever.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All the guests loved the Wedding & reception decor. They also loved the idea of outdoor wedding, we lucked out on the weather, it was freezing outside for all our pre-events and I really wanted outdoor wedding , it was 75  degrees. They also loved the flash mob dances, for my sister, Sil & bridal party walk, I asked them to do a small dance, instead of just walking in. Still obsessed over that

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
At our wedding when nikhil was putting the sindoor on my forehead, it fell on my nose. Everyone kept saying that means he loves you alot. I had the biggest smile on my face.

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.
People always say  the wedding is always about the bride, i wanted it to be about nikhil as well. I got customized kalree with small airplanes hanging, he absolutely loved it. I did small gestures with airplanes, we had airplanes on our cake. The  Reception seating chart was something different related to aviation.
For the wedding we had a lively baraat procession consisting of Bollywood bangers, colorful smoke bombs and choreographed performance by the groom's sisters & brothers on our family's favorite song "chotte chotte bhaiyo ke" . Following his energetic entry, I made my way to the mandap with my sister. It was a perfect sunny day  & our gorgeous fresh flower mandap looked perfect . And, ending it all on a high note, we drove off as newlyweds in our Slingshot Car.
A grand party that celebrated our love along with our loved ones,  the reception was packed with glitz and glamour. Nikhil and I made a smashing choreographed entry on the ‘Aeroplane’ song. Furthermore, touching speeches by our friends, siblings, and parents added an emotional touch to the event.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
For all the other Bride-To- Be i would say The big day will be over before you  even realise it, don't stress over the details. Just Enjoy. Always go with what you & your partner want, remember it's your day not anyone else's.  Pick everything that you both like, don't think twice if you love it, don't forget you will remember this day for the rest of your life , so no regrets. A wedding should be an expression of your unique style & story together.

What an inspiring wedding celebration! Make sure to join us tomorrow for more lovely and inspiring ideas.

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!
