From the bride, on the wedding style:
"To be completely honest, I went into the planning process with a blank mind. I knew I wanted to stay away from pinks (yes, I don't like pinks). I also knew I really like the earthy/branchy/rustic look. From there I went Pinterest crazy. From branch centerpieces, to huge trees, I finally started to figure out what I wanted the wedding and reception to look like. We initially started putting some of these ideas together in September, and the wedding was in March. Of course there were constant changes and adjustments, but the day of wedding everything looked beautiful."
On the lenghas:
"I always knew I wanted a traditional lengha for my wedding, so that definitely made the process a bit easier. I stuck with the white and red combination. We went to India for all our shopping because it was much better for our budget, and we had many options to choose from. I did not previously spend to much time on the Internet looking at styles. I got lucky because the first store we went to in India, I ended up finding my wedding and reception outfit there."
On friends and family helping:
"I have a very large family here in Southern California, so I had a lot of help with anything that was needed. My mom was the head of the planning process, so she would have her detailed excel sheets ready to assign people their tasks. My creative cousin Shaina had spring break the week of the wedding, which was perfect because she helped me with table numbers, signs, and just making things look extra special. We had a lot of family coming from out of town, so my dad and all the boys were in charge of picking up everyone from the airport and making sure they were comfortable. The whole wedding event could not have been possible without our wedding planners Neha and Amanda from Blue Lotus Insights. They were always there making sure everything was on track and exactly how we wanted it."
The reception is still ahead!
