  • Wedding Story: Supreet & Rajan

Q: Describe your wedding day and your favourite moment.

Our wedding day was full of excitement for both of us and our families. There was a blend of emotions – happiness, nervousness, and joy. We were both anxious the morning of the wedding. However, this feeling quickly disappeared as the Anand Karaj ceremony began. One particular moment that remains vivid in our minds took place after our Anand Karaj. Following the ceremony's conclusion, our closest friends and family gathered to congratulate us and celebrated our exit from the ceremony tent by showering us with rose petals.

Q: Could you tell us about your reception?

Our reception was truly the grand finale of our wedding week. Lux Affairs brought our vision to life by transforming our venue and creating the perfect ambiance for a memorable night. We incorporated personal elements that reflected our story through our signature drinks, entrance video and reception logo. From the catering and décor to the music and entertainment – our reception exceeded our expectations. Seeing our friends and family coming together to celebrate us into the wee hours of the morning was the perfect end to our wedding week.

Q: How was your experience with the photography team? Would you recommend it to others?

 We had the pleasure of working with Varsola Visuals for our wedding. Guneet and his team have a remarkable eye for capturing real moments, and the results are remarkable. Their professionalism and dedication to their craft are evident in their work. The team ensured we were relaxed, comfortable and at ease both on and off camera. We cannot recommend their services highly enough!

Q: Can you describe your outfits?

Rajan wore an intricate ivory achkan to complement my traditional red lehnga for our wedding day. For our reception, Rajan opted for a black tuxedo while I wore a detailed ivory lehenga in contrast to our blue, gold, black and chrome-themed reception. When coordinating our outfits, we felt it was important our outfits represented our personal styles while staying in line with our wedding themes. 

 

Q: What are your goals as a couple?

To prioritize one another and build a life we can look back on and be proud of. We both understand the importance of continuing to work on ourselves as individuals so we can grow together as a couple.

Q: What are your favourite quotes?

"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years" – Abraham Lincoln. It reminds us to stay present in the moment, live life to the fullest and create meaningful memories which we can reflect upon years down the road.

Q: What are the strengths of your marriage?

Our greatest strength is being each other's friends before anything else. We share common values and beliefs and have similar goals. We balance one another out and prioritize open communication in our relationship.

Q: If you could give any advice to other married couples, what would it be?

Marriage is a partnership. It involves shared responsibilities both in and out of the household. Support and celebrate one another and all the milestones along the way, regardless of how big or small.
