How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Brought together by a personal matchmaker, Grant & I first crossed paths at the Claremont Hotel, Berkeley. We gabbed over cocktails & delicious eats for hours, closing the joint down. Our shared sense of humor and outlook on life unraveled so naturally, as though we had known each other all along. We left each other's company knowing in our hearts we would be together always.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
A romantic at heart, Grant wished to incorporate details in my life that he knew I held close to my heart. Knowing how passionate I was as an educator, he felt that nothing would best the setting of proposing to me in my classroom while involving my students and my principal who also had become a close friend of mine over the years.
 
After asking my father for his blessing, Grant put forth his plan on May 31st - my parents' anniversary - by arriving to school during the afternoon recess. While I heard the pandemonium garner momentum outside of the classroom, Grant was "stealthily" handing out roses to each student, who had become quite acclimated with him the past few months, dubbing us "Granjeet" as a "matrimony" of our names - Grant & Kiranjeet - while also mischievously writing cliched poetry and love notes on our behalf addressed to one another. 
 
Once the bell rang, each student sauntered in to the classroom, desperately attempting to stifle their excitement, to present a rose to me with Grant finally handing me a rose himself, proclaiming his love and desire for us to be together every day for the remainder of our lives. As he knelt down to ask for my hand, my students finally let loose their giggles and gasps of gleeful anticipation, and when I responded with "yes", the screams, shrieks, and rapture were beyond containment. Plastic champagne glasses flowing with sparkling apple cider ensued, and, true to form, what a unique unforgettable shared experience Grant created for my students to participate in such a special, heartfelt moment!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Once we immediately fell in love with Haiku Mill, cosmic forces collided with Sabyasachi's 2017 Udaipur Collection. The lehengha's green & yellow hues on raw silk complimented the lush gardens of Haiku Mill fluidly as though the cloth itself was a natural extension of the organic vines and branches found throughout the grounds. Noticeably visible was the mosaic border of the lehengha as it continued as the floral print, becoming more English influenced, a metaphorical nod to our multicultural wedding's blend of customs.
 
In my mind's eye, I had long envisioned incorporating a rich tone of emerald green for my wedding lehenga, so discovering this particular design and scheme was quintessential kismat. Simply stated, the wedding dress and the stunning venue was a match made in heaven.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
It was our best endeavor to have all of our guests regarded as one OHANA during the course of our shared time in Maui. We heard from a plethora of friends and family how special and close knit they came to feel with how each event integrated both sides together seamlessly, encouraging new relationships and bonds to form and remain established even to this day. From the onset, Grant & I strongly desired for our wedding to allow everyone to feel like a part of the "inner circle of trust."
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
With that ring comes ALOT of "responsibility". How right you are mom!
 
Never compromise yourself. You're all you've got.     Janice Joplin

Have an awesome day, ladies! And make sure to join us tomorrow for more.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on a dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel and our first date was, you guessed it, coffee on a chilly Sunday morning. It wasn't until after we hung out a bunch that my initial impression change, which was that he totally was not "The One". Spending more time with him, especially as friends, allowed me to take the pressure off of me (and any potential outcome) to just be and see what kind of human he really was, and really, if he was fit to be the human I want to share my future and life with.  Oddly enough, it was when we hung out in a Taco Bell parking lot, pigging out to crunchwrap supremes while listening to our favorite songs in the car that it hit me. Shortly thereafter, we both decided we wanted to be more than friends. There was not ever one moment that was more telling than others, but just how each moment built upon the prior to deepen our understanding of one another only to realize that this is my favorite human I’ve ever met in my life and we simply cannot do this thing life without each other.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
It was a total surprise and I was in a t-shirt and sweats. I arrived home after 4 hour drive from seeing my parents in NY to my condo being decorated with pictures of the two of us, candles everywhere with roses and him bending down on one knee ready with the ring and all. I literally couldn't fathom this was happening and that it was all real, so all I did was giggle the entire time. He had proof checked the entire idea and proposal with my best friends beforehand, even doing a dry run while I was away to visit my parents!

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 was a lost case until I met Chandani with Events By C, who is the darling of all darlings and a woman who knows her stuff and will get you a wedding, correction, beautiful wedding in less than five months. Yeap you read that correctly, we started to plan our wedding sometime in March and got married in June, and it really would not have been possible to fine tune it the way we did, let alone on a short time frame without her and all her connections. Having said that, I hated the entire experience. I do not like planning and especially not an Indian wedding, but having a sidekick through the entire process to help both of us put it together made it all bearable and doable, with a smile even!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went to India for shopping and custom designed both my wedding and reception outfits with a store in New Delhi, @FrontierRaas.  I had an idea of what I wanted and they helped bring it to reality, albiet with lots of frustrating calls, whatsapp messages and delays, they came through for the win in the end.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Working with Chandani and Sarah Khan Events to make the environment we wanted to create for our wedding something real. We wanted an outdoor wedding and reception garden party where it felt like we were at home, and not in a ballroom. These amazingly intelligent and hardworking women put their efforts together and made it possible.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The decor! Sarah Khan Event Styling is what really made this wedding look different than any other wedding, in our humble opinion. I know every Bride thinks their wedding is the best one, and rightfully so, but I truly think our wedding was the most beautiful wedding I had ever been too.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
R. The First Look. Chandani and Elite Entertainment made it possible for me to surprise my groom at the mandap as a walked up to him dancing and being my silly self, just before we exchanged our wedding presents. It was so meaningful to have this moment before the chaos ensued and have a quiet moment to be present with one another and actualize "us" that day. 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be kind to yourselves during this process and don't let what other people want of you tarnish what you want of you and out of your relationship in this process.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Cake was also another beaut from Buttercream in DC (www.buttercreamdc.com), that was made to match my outfit and all the decor. If you were inspired today, visit us tomorrow! We have something special prepared just for you!
