“ He surprised me at midnight on my birthday with a trip to New York,” the bride said, “He proposed while we were on a city tour with a photographer in Times Square. It was beyond perfect!”
The couple decided to emulate a regal maharaja and maharani theme for the wedding ceremony and black tie theme for the reception.
“I did not want to wear the typical red for the wedding ceremony so we went with more pale and lighter shades for our wedding outfits.”
The best part of planning the wedding was traveling to India to design the outfits and enjoying every moment of the wedding week.
The biggest challenge was time management, with the couple wanting to be involved in every single detail.
“We soon realized we needed help. Without any questions, both our families jumped in and lent a hand whenever we asked,” she said.
Remina’s brother helped design her wedding and reception attire. The darling dress was a custom design from New Delhi, India and the reception gown was made by Wellgroomed in Surrey, B.C.
Bhavjit’s wedding attire was also custom made in New Delhi, India and his reception attire was Tom Ford from Harry Rosen.
“It is surprising how fast time flies – from the moment you start planning for the wedding to the day you are both sitting at home looking back at all the pictures and memories created,” Remina said.
Remina’s advice to other couples planning a wedding:
“Do not procrastinate, timing is everything, book sooner than later since venues and vendors book up fast!
As stressful as it is, this wedding is for you and your partner so enjoy the planning and months leading up to the wedding. Share the stress and delegate the workload to others.”
