The bride, on her most memorable wedding day moment:

"The most magical part of the wedding was our first dance. As you walk onto that dance floor, you realize that all your family and friends from all over the country came all the way to the wedding are there just for you. You can't help but feel unbelievably blessed and loved at that time. After months and months of planning, everything you worked towards and imagined had just come into fruition. As I was dancing with Larry and looked into his eyes, I realized how lucky I was to have him as my husband and that feeling was surreal."

On her and her Raja's first dance song selection:

"Larry and I have completely different taste in music! I like soft rock and R&B and he likes old school hip hop, 90s, country and pretty much everything else! Neither of us wanted to pick a mainstream song for our first dance and we searched for a while for The song. On our free time, we would youtube wedding first dances to see if we could find something we both loved. I actually randomly happened to hear Forever Like That by Ben Rector on my Pandora and fell in love with it. I sent the link to Larry right away and he loved it as well."

On her reception fashion:

"As part of the south Indian tradition, I was to wear a sari to the reception. I knew I wanted to purchase everything other than my wedding dress from India. I also knew I wanted a traditional Kanchipuram silk sari but I had no idea what I wanted. Finding that also took hours for me to find after going to numerous silk stores in Kerala but we had a lot of fun finding it."

Have a splendid rest of the day, dolls, and we'll see you back here tomorrow!

The bride, on what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:

"The part I enjoyed the most was watching both families coming together. Both us have a large family with lots of uncles, aunts and cousins just like most Indian families. It was just amazing to watch both sides of the family getting to know each other as they were helping out with the wedding festivities and having a blast while they were doing so."

On the role that family and friends played:

"We would not have had the wedding of our dreams without the love and support of our parents. I was also very lucky to have my sister-in-law to help me plan the wedding. We were also so lucky to have the best bridal party ever. Every single one volunteered to help with the tiny details of the wedding and made it a complete success. Thanks to everyone, it was the most joyous event of our lives."

Sit tight, dolls! We'll be back before you can say "reception sari"!

The bride, on how she met the Raja of her dreams:

"We actually met online and in the process of getting to know each other a little bit more, we realized that we had a few mutual friends. It didn't take me too long to realize that that he was exactly what I was looking for my whole life. He was sweet, caring, smart, funny and just wholesome. A few months after we started dating, we met each other's family. After meeting his family, I got a better understanding of who he was, his values and his priorities. It was also at that time that I realized that I could not live without him."

On her groom's memorabl proposal:

"Larry and I had a long distance relationship towards the beginning of out relationship. He was doing his fellowship in Dallas and I was working in Houston. As a part of his graduation celebration, him and his colleagues wanted to go out for dinner and he made sure that I came to Dallas to partake in it. While I was getting ready for the diner he repeatedly asked me not to make any plans for next weekend in Houston and that we're going out for something special. After the third time he mentioned it, I suspected that he may be planning to propose. So I get ready and go to dinner with him. After the dinner, when we came back, the apartment was filled with flowers and candles - which was decorated by his friends who snuck in while we were out. I was stunned and I stood there at the door not knowing what's going on. He held my hand and led me towards the corner of the room where there was a table with flowers and pictures. On the table was this scrap book full of pictures of our time together and drawings (more like doodles) of us. On the last page he wrote, this is the first and only time for me to be truly happy, Sunitha will you marry me. I looked up at him and I saw him on his knee with the ring in his hand. I teared up and I said I cant wait to marry you"

On her wedding style:

"Our wedding was in spring so I knew I wanted it to be colorful, yet soft and romantic. I started with a specific palette of colors, which was rather difficult to stick to as I kept changing my mind about my colors. But I took my time with it and made the right decision and went with a palette consisting of shades of pink and gold."

Stay close! You don't want to miss the fab wedding photos coming up next!

The bride, on choosing her dream wedding dress:

"Since Larry and I are both Christian, we got married in church and I opted for a white dress. I spent countless number of hours online searching for the right dress and figuring out what I wanted in a dress. After trying on a few dresses that fit the description of what I wanted did not meet my expectations at all. So I started from scratch and as I was going through the dresses at the boutique and putting away the ones that I wanted to try on, they all turned out to be from the same designer. That's when I fell in love with a Liancarlo dress with french alencon floral lace. I also wanted sleeves on the dress and ended taking the dress to Laura's Bridal Couture Alterations in Houston and told them exactly what I wanted. The sleeves that they created exceeded my expectations and came out absolutely breathtaking."

On her hair and makeup:

"Initially I had no idea what I wanted for my hair & makeup. I had collected some pictures from Instagram and Pinterest that I liked and showed them to my hair and makeup team. I explainedout what I liked about each pictures and trusted them with the rest. It helped that I had a trial with both of them and they made me feel completely at ease. For the most part, I was pretty relaxed about my looks because I knew these girls were extremely talented and in the end, they made me feel gorgeous and made my entire bridal party absolutely stunning."

Exciting day, right gals?! So much more Maharani magnificence is on its way!
