Maharani Sabrina, on meeting the Raja of her dreams, Mohsin (a.k.a Mos):
"I met Mos while I was in London studying for my Masters in Public Policy at the London School of Economics. Mos was born and raised in London and was working at Nasdaq at the time we met. Our first date was at a cocktail bar named Milk & Honey where we bonded over our mutual love for the TV show Breaking Bad. Since I was on a student visa, we both knew my time was limited in London but after a few months of dating, Mos put in for a company transfer to his NYC office. I knew that any man that was willing to move across the world for me was a keeper and the rest is history"
On her destination wedding style:
"Our wedding was three days so we had to think about wedding style for each day. My mother and I did most of the design for the wedding. For the first day, which was the Welcome Party and Pithi, it was held on the Pool Deck with direct access to the beach. Because of this, we wanted to make it bright and a fun atmosphere so we hung lots of Chinese lanterns and used bright colors like green and marigold. We had a mehndi artist to do mehndi for guests during the welcome party/Pithi"
On her welcome party and Pithi style:
"For this look, I wanted something that was a melding of my South Asian roots and my upbringing in the US. I went back and forth many times on what I wanted for this outfit but in the end, I worked with the designer in Mumbai and through his suggestion, decided on the bottle green crop top and skirt with short cape design."
