Maharani Aleena on the most magical moment of the day:
"Oh my goodness it's hard to pick just one moment! The entire day was so special! The best way to do this would be chronographical order. The first absolutely special moment was our first look. Geoff and I had decided in the early stages of wedding planning that we would have our first look on the bridge of the 10th hole. I had always imagined 2 views of that moment: one from side, getting a panorama of the moment I first walked up to him, and one from in front of us, watching our reactions as we saw each other for the first time that day. However, there were golfers playing the hole when it was time for our first look! So the Club staff had to politely ask them to get out of the shot or finish playing the hole. The videographer Caleb and photographer Katie were with Geoff so they took him aside, making sure that he didn't turn around to see me. I stayed with the Club Events Manager Rebecca until the golfers had finished. Once they were done, they stood by and watched our first look, so while it wasn't as private as we had originally hoped, it turned out to be quite funny. After that, my grandmothers put my churra on me, and as the only girl on my paternal side and the oldest on my maternal side, it was a very special moment. Walking down the stairs and aisle with my dad was beautiful and teary. My brother, who I rarely get to see because he is always abroad for work, delivered a speech that had the entire room crying. Geoff's family is Jewish, and during the reception, we did a chair dance, which was more amazing than I had imagined. And at the end of it all, we had a gorgeous sparkler exit, in which Geoff twirled me. It was such a magical day, and I would go back and do it all again in a second."
On how her friends and family helped:
"Two days before the wedding, we did my mehndi at home. My family and bridesmaids decorated our patio with colorful dupattas and cushions to make it feel special and intimate. My cousin Anoop did an especially great job making sure that everything was perfect. During the Maiyan the day before the wedding, my aunts and uncles all made the event so special. My cousins Anjali and Anuj made beautiful rangolis to surround us as our family and bridal party put the haldi on us. Then, on the wedding day, my grandmothers and immediate family put my bridal churra on me. I really felt like a true Maharani all week because of my family and friends."
Have an amazing day, Maharanis! We'll see you tomorrow for another sensational shaadi!
