How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mayur and I initially dated when we were 15/16! We stayed friends after that for many years and always bumped into each other at random social events. Life happened and we reconnected again after I turned 30 and it was an instant connection. We had the same values and morals and instantly fell back in love again. Our first date was at a vineyard and we knew fate brought us back together for a reason.

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.
Unlike other brides I hated the part of "planning". It was something that gave me a lot of anxiety because I wanted everything to be perfect. I had a vision in my head but had a hard time putting that down on paper. My husband who is a creative genius helped out tremendously in this department and pretty much executed all our ideas to our vendors. As our wedding was going to be on Long Island we had to find venues that could hold the amount of guests we had attending ( 800 +). We went with The Garden city hotel, Hyatt Regency and Crest Hollow country club. My hair and makeup was done by Kanwal Batool and her amazing staff - She has always been a dear friend to me so that was the one thing I was certain about. The Decor and theme we worked with House of Dipali ( Kiriba Floral) and Stylish Events of NY to execute the different visions we had for each event. They were an incredible help. Last but not least our attentive wedding planner Artistic Affairs ( Jharna) was there from the first moment to the last. She really gave us so many unique ideas and helped plan to perfect, we could not have had such beautiful executed events without her and her team!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
All my Indian outfits were custom done by Mom in India. I wore two different sarees for the wedding ceremony and they were custom made on the handloom. My mom actually picked out all the threads and warping and they were weaved by the weavers. Fun fact - I did not try on any of my Indian outfits till the day of each event! I trusted my moms choices and they all came out perfect. My reception outfit was an american white dress covered in swarvoski crystals. My family and I traveled to California to Karoza Bridal to pick it out as I fell in love with their designs on instagram. I initially envisioned myself in a mermaid gown but after spending hours there my mom pulled the perfect princess gown that I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on. Once again I guess its true, Moms know best.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in our wedding was the first dance. My close friend Breanne actually sang our first song and recorded it and sent it to us all the way from Spain. She was unable to make the wedding but its something that my husband and I will cherish forever. We were serenaded with the most beautiful voice as we were dancing ; We truly felt there was no one else in the room as we danced.

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.
Our sangeet night was filled with so much laughter and dancing. We had so many people that performed and took their time out of their life to add something special and memorable that we can remember, we will always hold those dances and songs close to our hearts. I also wanted to do a combination of songs dedicated to my grandmother, Mom & dad and my in laws. It was something I always wanted to do and I am glad I had the opportunity to do that.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't sweat the small things! So many things are going to go wrong and not as you planned but just remember this is the start of the rest of your life with your perfect love and that is what's important.

Stick around, we have tons of inspiration prepared for you tomorrow!

Meredith, our planner, is a rockstar!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I visited the Anita Dongre store in NYC and pretty quickly decided on the bridal lehenga look I wanted! And I’m never quick at making big decisions like this. The color was the only thing I was wavering on - whether to go traditional with red or change it up with a lighter complimentary color. I ended up with blush pink and was very happy with it!

Please come back tomorrow. We have a special event prepared for you!

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!
