    I had no idea I would need a wedding dance choreographer until I did! Sneha and Sunrise Dance were amazing and truly a pleasure to work with. Not only did she choreograph 3 full-length group dances, she coordinated scheduling practices for those dances for 35 people and accommodated folks in-person and virtually, through Zoom! Sneha was so flexible and patient with my family and friends ranging in ages of 5-35. She was truly a lifesaver for our wedding program and I received nothing but amazing feedback and praise from our family and friends who worked with her AND our wedding guests who LOVED all of the performances. I would HIGHLY recommend Sunrise Dance for all your wedding and events choreography!

    This chai cart was such a hit at my wedding! I personally didn’t get to drink the tea cause we all know the bride and groom dont actually eat or drink at the wedding but all my family and friends were raving about it after the wedding and told me it was their favorite part of the wedding. They were one of the easiest vendors to work with as well and we’re very accommodating to my concerns about making everything COVID safe for my guests. I just booked them and told them a time and place and they took care of everything else and most importantly were on time. Thanks for making the wedding more fun and memorable!

They were so responsive and accommodating to all our needs.

She was so kind I knew right away I wanted to book her for my bridal henna!! Since then, she has created my wedding welcome sign and is also doing my guests henna!

    Chai and biscuits are very important in my community, so having this cart set up throughout my wedding was a great way to keep an audience happy. We got so many compliments on this set up since it went very well with the decor. There was no wait since it was all self serve. The best part was that I didn’t have to feel guilty or splurg because the pricing was very fair! Hiba was so great to work with – She was very responsive and was willing to work with us the schedule, set up, and cart customization. It was definitely a big hit with the aunties, the uncles, and Me!

    Probably the most detrimental and disappointing experience I had was with @subrinashouseofcrafts. I booked her 2-3 months in advance to make me a ring plate and two nikkah pens along with a full deposit a month in advance. However, 2 weeks before my event she informed me of some missing materials (which is fine) because sometimes you cannot find items used from another source. However, instead of contacting me 2 weeks before, she should have been transparent with her abilities and what not before taking me as a client and not misleading me. I felt very misleaded by her and on top of that after asking if she has made all of my items and if it was too late to back out, she got very upset and moody and decided to not make any of my items (2 WEEKS BEFORE MY EVENT). I was sooo stressed and disheartened, but we all learn from this and grow! I think it’s really important especially for vendors to be very clear and transparent from the beginning to avoid mishaps like this!

    Very bad experience! We asked him to have a microphone and sound system set up during our wedding ceremony so that my friend could sing. We also reminded him multiple times in writing, on the phone, & in person. He neglected to provide the equipment and was MIA when my friend needed to sing. He also flubbed every single dance performance and karaoke song from the mehndi party to the reception. Performance songs were started in the middle of the track, the volume was too low at times, and he often played the wrong track even though he had the itinerary in front of him. He tried to be an emcee and boasted that he was one of the best emcees in NJ. I gave him scripts for most of my events and let him wing the last event. Big Mistake. He messed up the bride/groom intro and mistakenly announced our presence before the intros for the parents. Obviously, the bride/groom would come last in the line-up. He is only good for playing the dhol.

    While Samia is confident and full of promises, she was our biggest letdown. We hired her to help with day of coordination for my sister-in-law’s wedding. She seemed passionate and driven, and our family is fairly well organized, so we figured having less experienced planner would be fine for what we needed. To set the context, we hosted a Hindu Indian wedding with about 140 guests in Texas with three events at home and two events at a luxury venue.

    She had lack of attention to detail. We noticed that hot food was left under the table at one of our home events and found it rotting in Texas’ July sun in the garage 2 days after the event. She forgot to communicate the change in timeline to our videographer for the mehndi, so the videographer did not show up and missed an important part of the mehndi.

    She is passive vs proactive. While Samia said she had done several Indian Hindu weddings, it seemed otherwise. She was frantically running around, seeming lost and constantly checking her paper check list. We had family friends helping with the events, so thankfully they stepped in to make sure events were on time, food was constantly being serve, plates were dry, there were enough chairs etc.

    She is unwilling to serve and difficult to trust. There were several things that ultimately went wrong from small details like plates coming out wet and cake being served an hour after we asked for it (plus three different people asking for it). The larger issues we had were: 1) The livestream did not work for initial events (and we had a lot of family from Indian trying to join), and instead of her reaching out to the videographer to have it fixed, she waited until after the event to reach out once we asked what happened and what the future plan was; 2) We asked for the top tier of the cake to be saved for the bride and groom, and it was thrown out. Samia blamed it on the venue, and the venue blamed it on Samia; 3) There were no spoons for dinner (this is the venue’s fault as well but Samia should have caught this early), so one of the uncles had to ask a friend to run and grab spoons from the nearest store; 4) While we had agreed with the venue to have liquor well in advance at our after party, there was massive confusion between the venue and Samia where they blamed each other for the communication and ultimately led to us finding out a few hours before the reception that we’re not allowed liquor at the after party.

    When we mentioned how we were letdown, she said that we were hard clients to deal with. All of our other vendors enjoyed working with us, so this comment was a bit discolored.
    Samia is a 21-year old inexperience planner (we did not know her age when we hired her). While she seems like a nice person, I would highly recommend anyone planning a Hindu wedding against hiring her. There are many more unfortunate details I can share, but overall, do not hire this planner.

    Amna and Belal work magic behind the camera! As any couple going through the motions of putting together a wedding, there are a lot of things to think through. Amna took the time to get to know us as a couple while also explaining her style and what to expect of the finished product. She even took it a step further – although we were her first Hindu wedding, she spent a considerable amount of time with us to understand the various rituals and ceremonies so that she wouldn’t miss any key moments. The day of the wedding, she and Belal were great at making us feel comfortable and kept us laughing! The finished digital album was the exact high quality that we had expected! It was timely, consistent, well-edited, and simply stunning. They beautifully captured all the important moments of our wedding, and the candid emotions are evident in the pictures. There is no doubt in our minds that we picked the perfect photographer for our wedding day!!

    Priti helped us with picking some of our vendors as well as day of coordination. She was always prepared for all of our meetings whether it was with just us or with the vendors. She’s very knowledgeable, organized, full of awesome ideas/tips, and professional (but somehow it felt like she was one of our really good friends!). Our wedding day felt like a breeze with her around. We truly got to enjoy the day without having to worry about anything because we knew Priti was handling it, our friends and family would also agree with that. She communicated very well with all of our vendors who also had nothing but positive things to say about her. For example, our venue coordinator mentioned how respectful and professional she was with them and that’s not always a given with every planner. Bonus points for that! I would definitely recommend Priti for your future events because she will make your vision come to life while ensuring everything goes as smoothly as possible! You’re the best, Priti!!! 💕
