Shelina and Deep

In the luminous desert oasis of Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch, Shelina and Deep embarked on a journey of love on May 20, 2023. Their story began in October 2021 when fate intervened through a digital connection on Bumble. Shelina’s compassion and Deep’s kindness created a magnetic bond that, after a year of dating and family meetings, solidified into a love that felt utterly natural. The proposal, a romantic chapter written on October 21, 2022, unfolded in the nostalgic setting of their first date venue, Evo, and the charming Old Town. Under the night sky and by a fountain, Deep asked Shelina to be his forever, a moment swiftly shared with family over FaceTime.

Weddings by Shy became the orchestrators of their dreams, weaving details with an impeccable touch. The decision to trust Weddings by Shy proved invaluable, allowing Shelina and Deep to revel in the joy of their events. A resounding recommendation echoed for couples considering a wedding planner, particularly Weddings by Shy. Choosing Arizona for their nuptials was a deliberate choice, captivated by the allure of greenery and the splendid Hyatt at Gainey Ranch. The pre-wedding events, from an intimate Mehndi to the grand ceremony and reception, embraced lightness and airiness. Bright marigolds adorned the Haldi, while a vintage Indian swing added charm to the Sangeet. DJ Sobash set the tone with Bollywood beats, accompanied by Dholi Dee. Deep made a majestic entrance on a white horse, leading the baraat, while the bridal party awaited at the reception site. The reception unfolded as a visual symphony. Shelina and Deep entered through an LED screen, enveloped by cold sparks, to the tune of “You are My Soniya” from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. The dance floor, cloaked in clouds, witnessed their first dance to Arijit Singh’s “Kesariya.” The hall bloomed with white and pink flowers, draped in ivory with ethereal uplighting. Their musical journey ranged from Bollywood to American hits, and surprises abounded. An entrance slideshow chronicled their journey, and the Father/Daughter dance featured a heartwarming montage of Shelina and her dad. Amidst the vibrant celebration, Shelina and Deep shared advice for future couples—savor the weekend and let the wedding planner handle the magic behind the scenes. In the radiant tapestry of their union, every note played and every detail curated spoke to the authenticity and joy that Shelina and Deep brought to their unforgettable celebration.
