Hi there sweeties! Today we bring you some super gorg images of Meghana and Adrian by the always stellar Hitched Photo. We promise that they’ll make you swoon. This dynamic duo have such a magical history together, and attended college and graduate school together, making all sorts of lovely memories through the years. Meghana told us, “When you are with each other for that long you are an irreplaceable part of each other's lives. He's my best friend and soul mate - simple as that!” Meghana and Adrian were about to make their most special memory yet with their Malibu, secret garden inspired wedding overseen by the sensational Neha Shah at Blue Lotus Insights. They settled on the ethereal Calamigos Ranch Malibu to host their Indian wedding ceremony, and on the morning of the event, Dolled up by Lulu swept in to bedazzle our beautiful bride. Her flawless skin, shimmering eyes, and rosebud lips were simply breathtaking. Meghana opted for a white, lace sari to combine the best of both Western and Eastern fashions. What a stunner! Although this sari was lovely on its own, the delicate jewels and carefully pinned veil also made a bold statement. Avec Lumiere and Hitched Photo captured so much fab live footage that we can’t wait to share with you all. In the meantime, Hitched Photo has captured every moment beautifully in our full gallery. While you wait for our ceremony coverage, scroll below for our interview with Maharani Meghana.
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Adrian and I met in high school. We have basically grown up together - through college, graduate school and beyond. When you are with each other for that long you are an irreplaceable part of each others' lives. He's my best friend and soul mate - simple as that!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Every year my cousins and I have a Secret Santa gift exchange amongst ourselves and our significant others. One year, I had to work overnight on Christmas Eve and flew down to LA to be with family Christmas morning. Adrian had rigged the whole thing so that he was my Secret Santa, and my whole family was in on it. In front of my entire family, I opened up my present - towels! Underneath all the towels was a small box, and I looked up to see Adrian on one knee. I immediately started crying and my family got the whole thing on embarrassing video. It was so magical!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew from the very beginning I wanted to wear a white sari - something ideally similar to lace so that it would also look a little bit like a western wedding gown. I wanted it to be simple and elegant. The only trouble was I had one day in Mumbai to find it! I had very little time to go wedding shopping in India so we had about 4 hours to find the wedding sari. After we left our third store I started to get worried but we found it at the 4th! I knew it was the right sari as soon as I saw it!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Food tastings! Man, I love food. I knew from the very beginning I didn't want to go with the tried and true Indian buffet - I wanted to do food stations with multiple cuisine choices. Therefore each tasting we went to had to show us a variety of options - Indian, Mexican, American, Chinese and then some! Word to the wise - do not book more than one tasting a day, your stomach will thank you.
Ceremony coming right up!
