A Gorgeous Engagement With Minimal Decor And Eye-Catching Outfits
BY Aakanksha Magan | 13 Feb, 2019
An adorable proposal at Golden Temple followed by a gorgeous two-day engagement, this real love story had us swooning. We absolutely adored the blush pink Anamika Khanna , Shania wore on her first day of engagement, and the golden Tarun Tahiliani looked equally stunning on her second day of engagement. And photography by Pardeep Singh was just perfect!

The Pre-Engagement Shoot
The Engagement: Day 1
The Engagement: Day 2
From The Bride:
We had a two day engagement with a prayer at Arvind's house followed by a performance by Sharry Mann. The next day we had the chunni ceremony at a banquet hall.
Pardeep Singh - Pardeep Singh was such a pleasure to work with! He has got to be the most down to earth photographer that truly expresses art through his pictures! He made everyone comfortable in front of the camera and captured candid shots of our friends and family celebrating with us! We feel as though he captured so many emotions allowing us to really relive our engagement weekend!
David August - Cannot thank the guys over at David August enough for how they helped bring my outfit together. Chad Mihr and Luke Sydnor did an amazing job making sure every detail was up to par for my engagement. Was a pleasure working with the whole team and can’t wait to do it all over again for the big day!
Jessie Khaira - Our planning & design was done by Jessie Khaira. I feel like the only thing I need to say is we could have not done the events without her! She puts her heart into her business and its apparent by how she makes you feel like family instead of clients. For the paat morning the she created a beautiful flower canopy by the mahraaj saroop and it was perfection. We told her the colors and what we imagined and she made it come to life. For the engagement party the next day she transformed the room to create a completely different experience for any guests that had been to the venue before. Can’t wait to see what she has in store for our wedding week!
Tarun Tahiliani - When I was thinking about my engagement outfit, I knew I want something understated but also something that really made a statement. I had seen the outfit previously on Kareena Lapoor and really wanted to try it on but there was over a months wait! I didn’t think I would be able to get this outfit but the manager was so understanding knowing that we were only in India for 3 more days so she gave me the opportunity to try on the piece in store. As soon as I put it in I knew it was the one! It was everything I imagined. I expected a designer showroom for a brand as big as Tarun Tahiliani to be a good experience but they definitely left me wow’d with their customer service!
Ishwar Jewellers - (Review by groom's mom) After Shania found her outfit, I knew the jewelry had to be perfect. When I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, Ishwar Jewellers customized the set; creating something that worked perfectly with her outfit. Having it custom made after not finding what we were looking for did push delivery with the set coming in just 2 days before the engagement! We have been shopping at Ishwar Jewellers for years and can always count on them to create quality items while bringing our vision to life!
