Planning DK and Parveena’s wedding was so fun-Especially considering we just did DK’s sister’s wedding 10 months prior! Their festivities kicked off in Bangkok, Thailand with 7 days of paies followed by the reception held at the Beverly Hills Hotel. We wanted to create something very different from all the vibrant colors used in Thailand so our theme was platinum and diamonds. We enjoyed this family so much and had a great time planning both weddings. This was the perfect finale for their wedding events

10am- Left the hotel for quick breakfast at Blanquet, our favorite boulangerie right next to the hotel. I was mindful of the fact that we had an 11 am appointment at George V, a Four Seasons Hotel.
On my way to meet Nidale Barrett at George V who is the sales and development manager. What an amazing lady! I spent three hours with her and felt like I had known her all my life. She was not only gracious but very welcoming and showed us the meeting spaces, penthouse suite, roof top balcony as well as other areas of the hotel. Read more...

Its always fun to create Henna and Sangeet parties because there are so many colors and themes you can do. For this party we used traditional Indian colors of yellow and red and brought in a few tents and low wooden furniture and lanterns to give the Moroccan feel. The tents were made to look like bazaars and the guests were able to go inside to discover a plethora of fruit, arabic tea served and henna artists ready to design beautiful patterns on the ladies hands.

On Jan 2nd, my husband surprised me with two tickets to Paris. We were scheduled to leave on Jan 13th to make it for my birthday on Jan 14. I was beyond excited as Paris happens to be one of my most favorite cities, if not most favorite in the world. I was also looking forward to practicing my French that had become quite rusty due to not practicing. We boarded the plane on the 13th for an early morning flight and arrived in Paris on Jan 14th at 9 am. By the time we retrieved our luggage and got the taxi to go to the hotel, it was 11 am and I did not want to waste any time so out we went Read more...

Faizaan had feelings for Zahra the moment he first saw her. They met through his cousin when they were 12 years old and the two remained good friends for 12 years.
