Maharani Sruti, on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Gopi:
"We met through family; we had an amazing first date that lasted all day -- from brunch til dinner! We had so much fun together the first time we met that we just knew our lives would be filled with happiness forever!"
On Raja Gopi's proposal:
"We were in the seaside resort of Terranea in Rancho Palos Verdes...it was a private, emotion-filled proposal, with no photos or any onlookers. It was a special moment forever etched in our memories."
On her wedding style:
"I wanted a festive South Indian wedding; For the ceremony, I wanted yellows and pinks, and pastel colors to complement the elegant silk sarees and gold accents that come along with the South Indian style. Yellow is a very auspicious and religious color for South Indians; so it was a main theme of the wedding."
On planning her Desi dream wedding:
"My vendors and family were all about making my day special and executing exactly what Gopi and I wanted; never did we feel like any detail was out of our control. Everyone did so much for us; we both come from large families, and it was beautiful to see everyone help out and have so much fun!"
On some of her most treasured wedding memories:
"Being outside, pre-ceremony, and having all the aunties that raised me sing well rehearsed songs in Tamil, as Gopi and I sat on the oonjal, or swing. It was a South Indian style party! Also, the surprise same day edit by Aaron Eye at our reception blew us away and brought us to tears."
On her and Raja Gopi's first dance song selection:
"Lava from the Pixar film, called Lava as well. It is a beautiful story of a volcano wishing for a lover, and finally getting one. The song is a Hawaiian-style song with ukelele guitar and the cutest lyrics ever!"
Have a marvelous weekend, my dears!
