Falling in love is the most magical moment one can experience in their life. You don’t need an entire life to fall in LOVE, a few seconds are enough to find your soulmate. And that’s how Anjali & Hiral found each other.
“We met on Coffee Meets Bagel and instantly felt a deep connection, level of comfort that we never felt with anyone else. We spent 8 hours together talking, and joking around and felt like we’d known each other for years! To date, every day still feels like the first day when we met – the happiness, excitement, butterflies laugh and love knows no limits!”-says the bride.
Our Sindhi bride Anjali Zankyani & Gujarati groom Hiral Gandhi take the vows saat samundar paar in The Rockleigh, New Jersey.

And the credit for their grand wedding goes to the couple who planned and researched everything to the T and to event planners Bridal Arts and Events who perfectly executed their plan.
“We had so much fun planning everything and feel like we make a dream team together!”-says the bride

Glitzy Mehendi Ceremony
Anjali’s Mehendi ceremony was an intimate affair with close family and friends at Venue Loft 29 in Manhattan. Elegant Affairs beautifully used the colour pops for the Mehendi decor. She wore mustard coloured lehenga with the combination of pink coloured choli. She completed her Mehendi looks with open hair and curls and was looking lovely. On the other side, Hiral looked handsome in white pyjamas with a combo of mud-coloured kurta.
Jazzy Sangeet Ceremony
The Sangeet was at the Manhattan Penthouse with breathtaking views of Manhattan skyline up on 16th Floor. Anjali & Hiral dazzled in green colored outfits for their sangeet ceremony. Anjali looked extremely gorgeous in exquisite green colored lehenga with mirror work on it. She accessorized her looks with a choker embossed with kundan and green pearls. We totally loved her mehendi look!! Hiral was looking dapper in green colored velvet sherwani with the golden embroidery on it. They were giving perfect co-ordination goals.
The ceremony was filled with oodles of fun, laughter, and humour. The groom was spotted dancing on famous Ranveer Singh track from Ramleela. Not only this, they stuck to the Gujarati tradition of playing dandiya in pre-wedding festivities. These lively pictures from their sangeet ceremony are showcasing the enjoyment they had during the soiree.

Bride’s call for the to-be-wed
“Just have fun with it and remember to respect each others’ wishes and opinions. Nobody else will understand 100% the stress of planning your wedding and level of details that go into it except you two! So stick with each other, stay calm and take time out for yourselves to go on dates and a few ‘no wedding talks’ days (even though it may be next to impossible) to come back stronger and rejuvenated!”
