How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Sunny and I had known each other for over a decade by the time we actually met. We were friends on social media for years but never met. We would send each other messages on Facebook and subtly flirt, but it never went anywhere. The number of mutual friends between us grew yet timing was never quite there yet. After a string of many failed relationships on both our parts, the stars aligned. I Direct Messaged Sunny on Instagram after he posted a song by Zayn Malik on his story (so original right?) and he replied back instantly. We eventually made plans to grab drinks. The first moment I laid eyes on this elusive man, I felt a surge of emotions I've never experienced ever before. We both gravitated towards one another and played a game of pool (he lost!) that night. The rest of the night was spent laughing uncontrollably and jamming out to 90's R&B while stealing glances secretly. We both went home that night knowing this was special, and from that night onward we were inseparable!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The way Sunny proposed to me was nothing short of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Valentine’s Day  was approaching and Sunny had asked me to take the day off from work. I obliged with excitement and started shopping for a nice dress. The morning came and Sunny was at my doorstep by noon with a bouquet of roses. He asked me to fix his collar and looked dapper than usual. We got in his car and he pulls out a scarf and put it over my eyes as a blindfold. As the anticipation built up, I asked him several times where we are going and if the blindfold was necessary. He stayed quiet and held my hand. As we exited the car, my blindfold was still on but he led my down a busy street full of bustling cars and fast walking pedestrians. We made our way up a flight of stairs and walked further and further than I’ve ever walked it seemed. He opened the blindfold and got on his knees. We were in the middle of the Brooklyn Bridge, surrounded by ecstatic strangers and a photographer. In front of what felt like the entire world, Sunny asked me to marry him and of course 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.
We dove right into planning. He proposed in February and we got married in October, we had about 8 months and we utilized it to the max. My overall experience with vendors were good! Wedding planning is always filled with a few hiccups but that goes without saying, ultimately we had the time of our lives on our big night.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew I wanted to wear the traditional red bridal outfit. Being a Bengali marrying a Punjabi, I wanted to make sure I incorporated hints on my heritage in my outfit. The Bangladeshi flag has red and green, and I decided to do an all red/gold lehenga with my green jewelry to represent my culture.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process would have to be just going to check out venues, cake/food tasting, and generally being treated like royalty. My husband loved every second of it, until it came time to pay!

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I would say our guests loved the love between Sunny and I. I think it was evident how in love and happy we are. We were smiling ear to ear and just dancing and laughing. A big shout out to our siblings, cousins and close friends for making us both feel so special and loved throughout it all.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our most special and favorite moment was when we made our entrance as Mr. & Mrs. at the reception. We came out to French Montana's "Unforgettable" and we were thinking of just walking out and waiving. However, when the time came - we just came through those doors dancing nonstop with our dhol guy. We totally didn't stick to the plan but it work out even better!

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 Sangeet was an "Evergreen" theme, both Sunny and I wore green and our decor was festive and colorful. This was one of our favorite night and we both performed a medley of songs for one another while our family members and friends put on an entire show.

The Reception was themed after a Gatsby style black tie affair. I was dressed in gold from head to do and Sunny was in a dapper white/black tuxedo. We wanted that night to be all about dancing/drinks/food and celebrating love!

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be would be: Keep your vision clear, and stay headstrong. There will be moments you feel overwhelmed and surrounded by family members and their expectations. Make sure you and your partner are ONE and on the same team at all times. Also, take one day out of the week to not discuss anything wedding related, and go on date night and reconnect with one another!


Stay tune for the marvelous outcome of this love story!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We actually met during my fourth year of college at a UGA vs UTK college football game in Knoxville, Tennessee. We had mutual friends, but had never crossed paths before. I remember the first day I was in Knoxville and my cousin had introduced us, and Himesh actually ignored me and showed zero interest in making an acquaintance. I remember thinking "wow people in Tennessee are rude."
 
The next day after the game, in a bar of course, I had a second encounter with Himesh. My friends and cousins had gone to the bathroom, and I was sitting by myself. Himesh came over to to talk to me (probably to console me after UGA's tragic loss) and we just had a casual conversation that neither of us really thought much of. I remember he asked me the same question twice in regards to my major.
 
After we parted ways, I remember being back in Athens and getting a friend request from him on Facebook. I messaged him first thanking him for giving me company in Knoxville and the rest was history! We instantly connected and talked about our childhood memories, life goals, family, interests and of course I had to make fun of him a few times. I eventually agreed to go on our first date. He was in medical school in East Tennessee at the time and showed up to my apartment late! Of course all the restaurants were closed at this time so I decided to just cook dinner for us. I made him falafel (which he loved -- and if you know Himesh you know he loves food), we talked for hours, and soon realized we were two pieces of the same soul. We dated for 3.5 years until we finally got married and moved to Jacksonville, Florida for his residency at Mayo Clinic!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
- The groom's perspective (Himesh Zaver):
Someone once told me "when you know, you know." From the beginning, with B, I knew I was in for a lifetime of laughter and smiles...on a full stomach. The hardest part of the proposal was not picking out the perfect ring or asking her father for her hand in marriage, instead it was planning something she would never forget. I've always tried my best to remind her she's worth a million bucks and more, and I went through hundreds of scenarios, locations, and ways I would ask. With B, it has never been the gift that put a smile on her face, but the handwritten card or letter that went with it. In the end, I decided on the things that matter most to her.
 
Our proposal was made possible with the support and help of many of our family and friends. Bindiya's day began with a letter, a painting, and her favorite breakfast. Her first letter highlighted how we met, our first date, and playful clues on what to expect throughout the day.  When first getting to know B, she told me her favorite flower was the Black Dahlia. On our first date, I brought her Black Dahlia flower seeds because I was never able to find the actual flower. Fast forward two and a half years and I still have not been able to get my hands on those flowers so I had a painting made of the exact jar of seeds I brought her and the full bloomed Dahlia. As the day went on, Bindiya received more letters, had a manicure with her sister, and finally arrived at Piedmont Park where I nervously awaited for her arrival. I was under a gazebo, and although I forgot how I asked, and honestly even if she said yes or not, I do remember how perfect she looked, and how happy I was to now call her my fiancé!     
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I flew to India specifically for wedding shopping. I found all of my outfits for each day's events in Bombay. I definitely had an open mind when I began my wedding shopping. I saved pins on pinterest and had a few ideas in mind. I spent the first 3 days just browsing at various stores and designers so I could see all my options.
 
I remember walking into Shyamal & Bhumika and just falling in love with the hand embroidered work and contrasting colors. I never saw myself wearing "all" red, but I knew I wanted to incorporate the color in my wedding lengha as it's a traditional color in Hindu weddings. Ironically, I ended up selecting a bridal lengha from Shyamal & Bhumika that I had a screen-shot of on my phone. Before I even saw it in person, I loved this dress but never really thought it was suit me or be within my reach. I really loved the contrasting mint, peach, pinks, and coral red's within my outfit and my husband's outfit! I was truly blessed with this beautiful dress! I wouldn't have it any other way.
 
In addition, on the day of the wedding, I was able to also wear my mother's wedding sari (33 years old I might add) for the Baraat and groom welcoming. It was really important to me to be able to share a piece of my parents' wedding on my special day because we both share the same wedding anniversary. That's right, April 20th was also my parents' wedding date. This wasn't planned but it's funny how things turn out. I'll always have this memory with me and remember them as I celebrate the years to come with Himesh!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
A unique part of my wedding was that all five events of my wedding were at the same venue. All the guests, both bride and groom's side, stayed at the same hotel where the ballroom was also located. Everyone was able to hangout during downtimes and get together and talk. I remember everyone telling my parents and me that they had such a blast because of the convenience and timeliness of all of the wedding events. My dad and I planned my wedding on our own and made sure everything ran according to schedule.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
A wedding comes once in a lifetime. It took me a long time (near the last month really) to get over the stress of wedding planning and actually start to enjoy the process. Now looking back on it, I truly loved spending time with my family planning the events, and I'll always cherish these memories. The amount of love and support you receive throughout this process and on the big day is truly indescribable. For all future brides-to-be, I really recommend remembering the true meaning of marriage and the point of having a wedding. At the end of the day, it's not about the little details like a fancy car, forgotten dessert, technical AV difficulties, but solely about you getting to marry the love of your life on a day you will never get back or forget.
 
Have an awesome weekend loves! See you again on Monday with more inspiring installments!
