Maharani Soni, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Raghav:
"Raghav and I are a match.com success story! We first met for dinner and it did not feel at all like we were meeting for the first time. Throughout dinner, we were able to form an amazing connection, and I couldn't find anything that I didn't like about him. He made me laugh all night, and I could tell right away that he was a genuinely nice and caring person. Since then, our relationship has only grown stronger and I never looked back!"
On her Raja's proposal:
"Raghav and I were planning a vacation together. I was planning a trip to the Grand Canyon, and Raghav was supposed to book the flights and hotels. 3 weeks before we were supposed to go, nothing had been booked despite all the research I had done, so I was starting to get upset. At that time he surprised me and told me that we were actually going to Greece for vacation since he knew that it was my dream vacation spot, and everything was already booked. While we were in Santorini, Raghav planned out the most amazing proposal. He told me that we were going to do some wine tasting, so he took me to a secluded outdoor restaurant at the edge of a cliff, where he then proposed to me. He had the whole restaurant reserved and had secret photographers hiding and taking pictures of us the whole time. Little did we know, we also had an audience watching us from the top of the cliff who we heard cheering once he got down on one knee. Once I accepted, he stood up and yelled out, "she said yes!" It was definitely a day I will never forget."
On her and Raja Raghav's custom cake toppers:
"Who knew that you had to order cake toppers at least 3 months in advance if you wanted customized ones? We didn't start thinking about them until a month before the wedding. Since we were too late to order it, Raghav thought of one of his friends who is amazing at art, and asked her if she could make it for us. She had never made one before, but happily agreed, and made us cake toppers that came out better than we ever could have imagined, and definitely added a unique touch to our wedding. Raghav's doll wore a tuxedo with a Batman mask, and my doll was wearing my reception gown."
See you tomorrow, my dears!
