About The Couple

Their Tale

Harman and Navroop met each other in a traditional “family setup” planned by two mutual family friends. They met over coffee and decided to continue talking when soon they realized that this is meant to be! They both love spending their time together doing the things enjoy like hiking, cooking and working out at the gym.

The Proposal

Harman proposed to Navroop in the most personal, intimate, and sweetest of ways that is beyond perfect. They both were sitting in a park when Harman pulled out a small book with their stories, special moments, arguments and basically their journey written. When she reached the end of it, he even read out her favorite poem and Navroop still had no clue because Harman would usually do such adorable things for her. It was after the poem that he went down on his knees asking her to marry him!

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

Navroop wanted her wedding to be unique and a celebration that paved its way deep down into people’s memories. With tummy satiating food, amazing music, and heart warming merry making, their wedding surely was a delightful affair to cherish for a lifetime.

What further had us go “oh wow” was how the bride designed all her wedding jewellery along with her jewellers, making sure that each piece uniquely complimented her outfits!

With We Do Designs making sure that the revelries looked a vision to behold and Aperina Studios capturing those hearty moments in exceptional frames, the whole soiree was “perfection crafted”.

Sangeet

The revelries kicked off with a home sangeet for which the decor was a blend of Moroccan and rustic elements. Vibrant colors such as tangerines, fuschia, magenta, and green marked the decor with rustic centrepieces and lots of lights!

For the function, Navroop wore a blue and peacock green Anita Dongre lehenga replete with breathtaking embroideries and gota patti work. She opted for an oversized maang-tikka and earrings from Talwarsons Jewellers that perfectly complemented her look. On the other hand, Maria, who dolled her up for all the ceremonies gave her shimmery eyes, pale lips, and half open hair.

Chunni Ceremony

The setup for Navroop’s chunni ceremony was done at the Gazebo at her home. It was decked up in heavy floral arrangements in hues of white and ombre of pinks, complementing drapes, wooden accents highlighted with vessels, and miniature bulb strings.

Chunni Ceremony Look

For her beautiful peach sharara set marked with surreal gota patti work & colorful embroideries, Navroop worked with Pleated Couture who designed the outfit for her exactly as she had imagined!

She teamed up her outfit with beautiful golden jhumkis from Talwarsons Jewellers while Maria gave her nude makeup with a tousled braid.

Mehndi

The mehndi was a fun and vibrant ceremony with Bohemian elegance, with the bride in a graceful ensemble by Pleated Couture and bespoke earrings by Outhouse. Her mehndi so intricately etched by Neeta Desai Sharma was an artistic blend of swirling florals, motifs, and geometric designs.

The Wedding Day

For the Spring Tea Garden themed wedding ceremony, the couple took their pheras at Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar Sacremento, CA. Lush rug and gorgeous florals highlighted the place beautifully.

Navroop's Look

To complement the elegance of the theme, Navroop chose for herself a gracefully royal look. For her outfit, she picked a heavily embellished Rimple & Harpreet Narula taupe lehenga with a blush dupatta. She teamed it up with a striking mix of different jewellery pieces from Nanak Jewellers and they all fitted in together perfectly—be it her cascading pastel blue meenakari choker set, the ruby encrusted ivory meenakari neck piece, chaandbali matha patti or her distinctive bangle set.

Maria further upped Navroop’s look by giving her eyelids a soft rose gold hue and her lips a pop of pale pink!

Harman's Look

Harman aesthetically complemented Navroop in a cream Sabyasachi achkan laden with fine golden embroideries. While a matching stole completed his look regally, a bewitching neck piece by Nanak Jewellers added that perfect pop of hue to his entire look

Reception

Hosted at the Sunrise Banquet Hall Vacaville, CA, the glamorous reception was one classy and opulent affair! The color theme of the reception revolved around lavenders, deep purples, and blues, coupled with ferns and foliage and apt lights.

An all hydrangea and miniature lights backdrop for the stage stood out while the photo booth with neon monograms, ivory & golden themed table settings marked with heavy blooms, over sized centrepieces, and candelabras beautified the entire space.

Couple Looks

While Harman suited up in a classic black tuxedo with a bow tie, Navroop went all OTT in a beige and midnight blue Manish Malhotra ensemble full of bold and stark sequin embroideries.

Her voguish jewellery from Nanak Jewellers flawlessly complemented her look while subtle makeup and a pretty low bun added to it by multifolds.

Tips From The Bride

  • Someone told me to stop 3 times in your wedding to remember what is happening. The wedding week is so stressful and fast that we often forget to process things! The moments that I remembered to stop are the moments that are crystal clear memories!
  • Don’t stress! Certain things will not go as planned, but you have to be ok with whatever is happening and enjoy the party!
  • Get enough sleep!
