This is a wedding story of a beautiful couple - Gloria and Vishal, who met at their place of work. After a few dates, Vishal laid his cards out on the table, saying he wanted a serious relationship. Gloria knew soon enough that this was the man for her. The big day has now arrived, and SX Studios takes us on this twosome's journey to wedded bliss.

From the bride, on how they met:

"I met my Raja at work. We had to work on a group project together. It was maybe our 2nd or 3rd date. Over dinner we were discussing relationships. He told me he was looking for a serious relationship and if that was something that I was not interested in, we could still date but he would continue looking. For the first time in my life, my heart sank and my whole body shuttered at the thought of not being with him for the rest of my life. He was the one."

On the proposal:

"He was making dinner for me and I was sitting at the table just having a conversation with him. He told me he had to call his mother to discuss something. I asked him what it was about and he said, "Do you really want to know?" Of course I said "yes," and he stopped what he was doing and went into his room. When he returned, he got on one knee, asked me to marry him and put the engagement ring on my finger. I said yes."

On hair and makeup:

"I hired two people to do my hair and makeup. We met months before and went over the two completely different looks. I looked on Pinterest to find different hairstyles."

On the lengha:

"I went to Chennai, India with my husband and his cousins to look for my lengha. I went on the Internet, Edison, New Jersey as well as stores in NYC. I wore two outfits - a lengha sari and a traditional wedding dress."
