Intimate picnic at the Japanese Gardens
On a break from her studies at the University of British Columbia, Randeep asked Tanveer to meet him at the beautiful Japanese Garden on-campus.
“He knew I’d be lazy and drive across campus, and had snuck a CD into my car, with all of “our songs” on it.”
When Tanveer got there, Randeep was waiting with a beautiful picnic, “said all the right things, and the rest is history!”
A beautifully, traditional Big Day
The wedding ceremony was a beautiful traditional Sikh ceremony at Tanveer’s dream Gurdwara.
The bride shone in an absolutely stunning maroon lehenga with all-over threadwork, while Randeeps gold sherwani compliment her perfectly. It goes without saying that this couple looked amazing on their big day!
Their bridesmaids continued the classic elegance in beautiful navy and gold pajami suits, while the bride’s brothers and groomsmen looked handsome in white achkins with red and navy detailing.
When the reception came around, the couple decided on a cocktail hour so they could “adequately greet all [their] guests without having to leave the dance floor.”
Tanveer continued her flawless looks in a gorgeous pink gown with an embroidered top for the cocktail hour, and then she dropped more jaws in her white all-over embroidered lehenga, while Randeep looked handsome in a classic black tux, paired with a bow tie.
The couple looked perfectly stylish, traditional, and classic as they danced the night away with their closest friends and family
Looking back on her Big Day
Besides the stress of Tanveer’s make-up artist cancelling on her a few weeks before her wedding, the couple found the planning process pretty stress free.
Although choosing vendors and venues can be a pain, Tanveer and Randeep made the best of it and chose those who would help their vision come to life.
“Vendors, we contemplated long and hard for some, and other decisions were no-brainers. Again, we wanted vendors that were easy to work with and of course, talented.”
Looking back, the couple agreed that their favourite part of the week was seeing each other the morning of the ceremony.
“We had been so busy for the week leading up to the wedding that we didn’t really get to speak much or even see each other…But the moment we made eye contact as I walked into the darbar hall, all the stress, the mishaps and the frustrations of planning a week long Indian wedding were all worth it.”
Advice for future Brides-to-be
Regardless of how organized you are, weddings are never entirely wrinkle free. Tanveer share’s her advice for those of you planning your big day!
As a self-proclaimed micromanager, Tanveer believes that no matter how much you try to nit pick, things will inevitably go wrong, and that’s okay.
“The best thing you can do is enjoy the moment and just roll with the punches. At the end of the day, it’s about you and your spouse, as long as you’re both happy, and that is all that matters!”
