Every single image of this gorgeous bride captured by L'Atelier Lumière International Photographie artistically showcased her vivacious personality and her dazzling sense of style.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!

Vinit had been planning our proposal for a VERY long time (as we were together for 7 years!!). It was supposed to be a girls weekend in Chicago, my home town. Vinit said he was going to go to New York the same weekend. Turns out, he was in Chicago as well! We were going to "brunch", but ended up stopping to take pictures along the lake, which looks towards the Chicago skyline. When we went to take pictures by the water, Vinit was standing there with flowers and a ring. We took pictures for a while and ended up by all of the boats. Vinit had booked a yacht for a few hours, and EVERYONE was there from all over the country (about 50 people). After that, they planned a dinner at one of the first restaurants Vinit and I had ever gone to in Chicago. It was absolutely one of the BEST weekends ever.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?

I wanted to sway away from the "all red" lengha for the wedding. I still wanted to be traditional, so I decided to have more white in the outfit. For the reception, I wanted to stick with the peacock theme, so I chose purple and gold for my outfit.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?

Most of the guests were from New York and Chicago. They absolutely loved that they got to make the wedding into a beach vacation. Most guests said our wedding was very unique, since a lot of it was held by the water.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?

There were two really special moments during the wedding. The first was when I surprised Vinit with a dance during the sangeet. The look on his face was priceless!! The second was during the reception. There was a surprise dance for me! My sister had put together a dance with ALL of our friends from all across the country to "sunshine in my pocket". Vinit was in the dance as well.

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.

We wanted the Sangeet night to be a relaxing vibe. We had couches with pillows on the sand for our guests to lounge. The whole Sangeet was VERY colorful.The event was held outside, so the sunset was absolutely beautiful. For the reception, we had a peacock colored theme. Everything was mostly green, blue and purple.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?

Enjoy the planning process! I know it can be stressful at times, but go according to your own style. Also, let your hubby to be have some insight on choosing a few things! They'll feel appreciated.

Excuse us while we hit replay! Such a beautiful wedding film.
