It's off to Dearborn, Michigan for this tremendous Indian wedding, planned by Blissful Weddings and Events! Thanks to Jobst Media, we get to see the beautiful bride getting all dolled up for her big day! Our Maharani is all aglow as beauty artist—Renata Makeup puts her in shimmering golden-bronze eye shadows along with a frosted mauve lipstick. Reena's delicate feet are decorated with a marvelous mehndi design, courtesy of Ekta Kansara. I am loving the traditional, gold jewels Reena chooses to accessorize with her lovely lengha choli! Wait until you see her at the ceremony, but until then, check out the gallery for more hair and makeup tips!
From the bride, on how they met:
"I met Mitesh while were were in a softball summer league. We played each other one day on separate teams and we started talking after the game. He thinks I was impressed by his softball skills, but really I fell in love with his gentle soul."
On the proposal:
I was living in Michigan and my husband was living in Chicago during our 3 years of dating. I came to visit him in Chicago one weekend in August and he told me that he had a volleyball tournament planned on a Saturday morning. Instead of taking me to the beach to play, he drove me to a nearby neighborhood. He said he wanted to go grab food before we went to play so we walked a few blocks then happened to come to the same softball field where we first met 4 years ago. At first, I had no idea where we were but it finally hit me when I looked around. Soon after I realized where I was, he got down on one knee and he proposed to me. Right after I said yes, one by one, our friends and family came out of hiding behind the trees. My thoughtful husband decided to replicate the same game we were playing on the day we first met! He had duplicated our team shirts from our original softball team, so we split up our friends and played a full game of softball just like we did when we first met. It was such an amazing day!"
The nuptials are coming up!
