Maharani Jigna, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Kalpesh:

"I met him on a dating website called Shaadi. We talked on the phone for about a month until we met in person in January 2012. Our first date was in Louisville, KY and he took me to an amazing restaurant, overlooking the whole city. Our weekend was full of laughter, smiles and a lot of conversation. At first I was apprehensive, so we maintained a friendship. As our friendship developed, I saw a side of Kal that really fit everything that I wanted in a partner, humble, selfless, and loving. As time passed, I knew I had found the one that my soul loves."

On her hair and makeup:

"My hair and make up, I spent hours and too many countless days looking for the right glam style for my hair and makeup on the Internet. My makeup I wanted a more natural elegant look for both of my ceremonies. For my reception I was going towards a bold look especially a little heavy on the eyes. I don't apply makeup on a daily basis, so having a natural look was something that suited me and my features. My hairstyle I choose two different type of retro style look. It was something that I liked and I've never experienced that on myself, but I loved it on other celebrities.

My wedding planner had set me with the best glam squad in Nashville beforehand. So it was good that I was able to do a trial run about a month before my wedding. I had a hair and makeup specialist that I met up with. Since I had three ceremonies at different days we did a trials run in one setting . Ashlea did my hair while Stephanie was working on my makeup. I absolutely loved their work. They knew exactly what I was looking for. Ashlea knew how to work with my different hairpieces which were a little bit challenging. There were both phenomenal and made me look like one stunning bride."

Sit tight, my dears! It's almost time for these lovebirds to say I do!
