A true play of destiny and timing, Amrit and Shreena's love story culminated in a beautiful wedding at the same location where they first met, California. Here, the bride shares all that went into planning the gorgeous wedding festivities.

Wedding in San Jose Gurdwara, California

How We Met
“Amrit and I graduated from the same university in Los Angeles. However, it wasn’t then that we fell for each other. We didn’t interact much during college and went our separate ways not knowing love would make us cross paths again! A few years down the line, I saw him at a party in San Francisco. What started as a simple conversation went on for hours together! Fast forward months of such endless talks, and we had our first date at Downtown San Jose. We’ve never looked back since then. Our love for traveling and exploring off-beat places has taken us to four continents and 14 countries, each of which gifted us an unforgettable experience.”

The Proposal
“Amrit pulled out all the stops to pop the question! During our two-week trip to France, he proposed marriage to me at our private villa in a quaint town close to Nice. As we returned to Paris the following day, another surprise awaited me - an engagement photoshoot against the city’s stunning backdrops! The experience was truly magical!”

Wedding Venues
“Amrit and I met in the Bay Area of California, and our families are settled here as well. Hence picking the wedding venues was not very difficult. Both of us love culturally rich properties and what could be better than the San Jose Gurdwara? We hosted a traditional Sikh wedding there and chose the San Francisco City Hall as the venue for our reception."

Wedding Planning
“The planning process was relatively smooth. We did most of it ourselves but had help coming in from a coordinator, Sahana Sridhara, as well. Our wedding invites were designed by Shine Wedding Invitations, and the decor was assembled by my company, The Opulence Boutique itself. My hair and makeup for all the functions were handled by Glam Angelique. As for the mouth-watering treats, our reception cake was by prepared by Susie Cakes, and we also ordered favors for the guests from Le Confectionerie. And the remarkable captures that you see are all thanks to the passionate team of Love & You Studios!”

Wedding Functions
“The week-long affair kickstarted with pre-wedding celebrations including the mehendi, sangeet, and 'maiya' (pre-wedding cleansing ritual) functions. With stunning bright decor, the themes for every function were inspired by our vibrant Indian culture and traditions.”

Wedding
“Marrying traditional roots with contemporary aesthetics, we opted to incorporate silver and cream hues for our big day. A mix of pink, cream, white, and gold touches added a further elegant vibe to the setting. However, the cherry on the sake was our getaway car which was a vintage Rolls Royce.”

Reception
“The following day we hosted our reception at the SF City Hall. The function had an ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’ theme. Our attires, inspired by red carpet fashions, were in shades of blue. While I donned an elegant pastel blue gown, Amrit looked suave in his velvet tuxedo. As for the venue and decor, everything looked like a wonderland with accents in shades of pink, cream, gold, and white. We had rosette tablecloths and stunning centerpieces with candles on each table as well.”
