Their royal Sikh love story.
Before their grand royal Sikh wedding, Gurpreet and Navneet met at an event for her Bhangra team. Gurpreet was hired to DJ the event, but was an hour late. Despite this annoying Navneet, he gave such a fantastic performance that he eventually caught her eye. Navneet decided to play the long game and didn’t give him the time of day. Naturally, a lovestruck Gurpreet went home and confidently announced to his parents that he had met his future wife. Gurpreet managed to get Navneet’s phone number from a mutual friend and they went on a date. To win her affection, Gurpreet romantically gave Navneet roses every date to match the number of times they had been out. Thus began their love story.
Navneet and Gurpreet had crossed paths before. A few months before their fated meeting, Navneet was spending a stressful evening waiting for the rest of her Bhangra team to show up for practice when a black car blasting Bindrakhia zoomed into the driveway. She rolled her eyes and sighed to her friend, “Oh god, don’t you hate that we have to marry one of those?” Little did she know she was lamenting over her future husband!
When the time came, Gurpreet, ever the romantic, gave Navneet her dream proposal in October of 2018. He arranged the proposal on the rooftop of The Graham Hotel in Washington, DC, complete with rose petals. Navneet always joked with Gurpreet that she was too clever to be surprised, but Gurpreet finally got her on that special day.
