Our story

It all began at a vibrant summer wedding in 2016. Two souls, destined to cross paths, found themselves in the midst of celebration. Robin's charismatic charm and Kiran's radiant beauty did not go unnoticed, as each caught the other's eye.

Despite the initial spark, months went by without any contact. It was as though fate was testing the waters of patience and curiosity. Then, in December 2016, Kiran, bolstered by the courage provided by her close girlfriends, finally decided to make a move. She sent a message to Robin, a simple "hello" that would forever change the course of their lives.

A month of messaging ensued, building a connection that only intensified their interest in one another. Finally, Robin decided to take the leap. He asked Kiran out on a date, but Kiran, ever the strong and independent spirit, had her conditions. She was a woman who knew what she wanted, and she told Robin that if he wanted to see her, he'd have to meet her at Tandoori Palace after work.

Kiran confided in her older brother, Arun, about their secret date plan. Arun agreed to help her turn off the security cameras at the restaurant, ensuring their parents wouldn't catch wind of their rendezvous. The stage was set, and love was in the air.

Their first date was filled with nervous excitement, laughter, and the sweet anticipation of something special. There was just one hiccup: Robin showed up in sweatpants. His fashion mistakes was the only thing that made Kiran slightly unsure about a potential second date.

However, Kiran's cousin, Simran, came to the rescue. She saw the spark between the two and convinced Kiran to give Robin another chance. And thank goodness she did! Their second date was a charm, and Robin's outfit was on point. From that moment on, their love story blossomed.

The rest, as they say, is history. Six years have passed since the summer wedding, and now Kiran and Robin stand at the threshold of a new chapter in their love story, eagerly awaiting the day they say "I do" and embark on a lifelong journey of love, laughter, and togetherness.

Wedding Day

Tuesday February 20th

Milni

The Milni ceremony is a significant and heartwarming ritual in Indian and Sikh weddings, especially in the Punjabi tradition. "Milni" literally means "to meet" or "to merge," and this ceremony symbolizes the merging of two families as the bride's and groom's families come together in harmony and unity.

The ceremony takes place at the entrance of the wedding venue. As the groom and his family arrive, they are greeted by the bride's family. The respective family members are introduced to each other.

The most iconic moment of the Milni ceremony is the exchange of garlands or floral wreaths. The male members from the groom's side and the bride's side take turns to garland each other as a symbol of love and acceptance. This exchange signifies the union of the two families and their willingness to embrace one another.

Anand Karaj

In Sikhism, The Sikh Marriage Ceremony Is Known As The ‘Anand Karaj’ Meaning ‘Blissful Union’. It typically takes place in the Gurudwara, the Sikh temple, and involves the bride and groom encircling the Guru Granth Sahib (the holy scripture) four times, while reciting sacred verses from the Sikh scriptures.

During the Lavan ceremony, the bride and groom are tied together with a scarf, symbolizing their union and commitment to one another. The verses recited during this ceremony emphasize the importance of love, trust, and mutual respect in a marriage.

Lavan signifies the beginning of the couple's journey together, and it is a solemn and spiritual moment in the wedding. The ceremony reflects the Sikh values of equality, oneness, and the significance of spiritual connection within a marriage.

First Lav: This Lavan emphasizes the importance of union and love between the couple and how their union is divinely ordained. It reflects the initial stage of their relationship, where they come together, guided by love and destiny.

Second Lav: The second Lav emphasizes the role of selfless service, equality, and trust in a marriage. It encourages the couple to embrace their responsibilities and share their joys and sorrows equally.

Third Lav: In the third Lav, the focus is on the yearning for a deeper connection with the divine. It symbolizes the spiritual journey of the couple together, where they seek spiritual growth and understanding through their union.

Fourth Lav: The fourth and final Lav reflects the ultimate purpose of marriage – to attain a harmonious and spiritual union with the divine. It signifies the fulfillment of the couple's spiritual journey and the attainment of a deep connection with the divine.
