Wedding Story : Rimple & Vick

Darpan News Desk, 22 Sep, 2017
  • Wedding Story : Rimple & Vick

It was absolutely extravagant, timeless and elegant; and beyond our expectations. We could not have been happier with how perfect everything turned out from the food, décor, and entertainment. Planning for a 1,000+ person party was not an easy task. However, our wonderful vendors made it happen. 

 

  

 
 
 
Q: How did you meet? 
 
Rimple: We met in high school at David Thompson Secondary. Vick liked me for about two years before I finally decided to give him a chance (he was very persistent). We started dating in 2003 in grade 10. This September will be 14 years for us.    
 
 
 
 
Q: What do you love most about one another? 
 
Vick: Her compassionate personality. Rimple is truly a very selfless person and is very motivated by the greater good for this world – which explains her very ambitious and entrepreneurial personality which I am so proud of. 
 
Rimple: His genuine personality. Vick is one of the easiest people to get along with, he truly makes friends with strangers anywhere he goes. Furthermore, I love the bond he has created with my entire immediate family. It’s truly something special.  
 
Q: Could you share your proposal story? 
 
Rimple: We got our closest family and friends together at the beautiful John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse in Richmond and held our engagement party there where Vick proposed to me. The date of the event was very significant and meaningful to us – September 15, which was our anniversary from when we first started dating 13 years prior to that.    
 
 
Q: Describe your wedding day and what was your favourite moment? 
 
We had been battling some bad weather on an incredibly late start to spring, however on the day of the wedding it all turned around with an absolutely warm gorgeous day. We got married at Nanak Niwas Gurdwara in Richmond, one of our most favourite temples.
 
Rimple: My most favourite moment definitely was right after our laavaan (four hymns of Anand Karaj) as I was incredibly relieved that I managed to not fall. Phew!
 
Vick: I would have to say the park. You feel a sense of relief from all the stress prior to that moment. Now it was time to celebrate with my wife and our closest friends and family.  
 
 
Q: Could you tell us about your reception? 
 
It was absolutely extravagant, timeless and elegant; and beyond our expectations. We could not have been happier with how perfect everything turned out from the food, décor, and entertainment. Planning for a 1,000+ person party was not an easy task. However, our wonderful vendors made it happen. 
 
Guests entered the venue through a beautiful white carpet entrance with crystal chandeliers dazzling above by Koncept Event Design. Cocktail hour presumed in the lobby and patio with refreshments and tapas, followed by a champagne entrance into the ballroom. Shortly afterwards, we made our grand entrance down our custom chandelier walkway to ‘Part II (On the Run)’ by Jay Z and Beyoncé. It was magical. 
 
Hollywood Harv was our MC for the night and surely kept the crowd laughing away. BC Cultural Bhangra Academy opened the night with their vibrant and heartfelt performance, followed by a beautiful custom aerial silks performance by Inner Ring Circus. Next we cut our beautiful 5-tier fresh floral cake by Amazing Cakes and had our first dance to ‘Dangerously in Love’ by Beyoncé. All our beautiful guests joined for the second dance and the remainder of the night was history once DJ 808 of Decibel took over the dance floor.
 
 
Q: Can you describe your outfits? 
 
Rimple: I wore a piece by Indian fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee called the ‘Pale Pink Lavender Jaal Lehenga’. It was embellished with gold sequins and the techniques of embroideries used were aari and gota patti. I chose the full sleeve kedia blouse with it. Vick wore a Tarun Tahiliani sherwani in ivory, complemented with a black turban and black velvet shawl detailed with dabka embroidery by Wellgroomed. 
 
For the reception, I wore Sabyasachi once again! This was from his latest Spring Couture 2017 Udaipur Collection called the ‘Ivory Organza Lehenga’. It had silk hand-painted florals and a beautiful tulle blouse that was embellished with crystal beads. 

Vick: For the reception, my entire outfit was from designer Tom Ford. The cocktail jacket was a hand-sewn design in black honeycomb, complemented with a tuxedo shirt and classic black bow-tie.   
 
Q: What are the strengths of your marriage? 
 
I think the fact that we never grow tired or bored of one another. We can hang out every day and look forward to it again the next day no matter what. When you are high school sweethearts like us, you end up spending almost half your life together upon marriage. As a couple it teaches a lot of patience, value, love and respect for one another.
 
 
Q: Where did you honeymoon? 
 
No time to honeymoon just yet, however when we do get to make some time this fall we plan to tour the South of France and Dubai.
 

Q: What are your goals as a couple? 
 
To simply live life to the fullest. We definitely believe in ‘work hard, play harder’. We want to hit those pinnacles in life and be able to say we got to enjoy the fruit of our labour.

‘Are you seeing anyone?’ they ask. ‘When are you moving out?’ ‘No ring on your finger yet?’ ‘Do I hear the pitter-patter of little feet in the near future?’ No matter how personal or private these matters may be, it doesn’t stop curious friends, family, coworkers – and sometimes even strangers – from having an opinion on the optimal time for these life changing events to occur.

Sunam’s signature style stems from its usage of spectacular lighting, and Kainth and his team usually eliminate a venue’s white lighting, and replace it with rich hues of fuchsia pink, gold, blue or purple to name a few.  In addition, Kainth customizes each event with his clients and finds that most brides want the event décor to reflect their outfits.
