The bride, on how she met the Raja of her dreams:
"We met on HowAboutWe, a dating startup in New York City that both of us had decided to try. We spent the summer of 2013 cooking, trying restaurants, and exploring NYC, and I knew he was the one when we could spend hours together and I could still never get sick of him."
On her Raja's romantic proposal:
"Rajan took me to Central Park on Sunday afternoon during the summer of 2014, and all of my friends were hiding in the bushes when he got down on one knee on a blanket covered with rose petals and cupcakes. I was blown away!"
On her wedding style:
"I was inspired by Midsummer Night's Dream, blush, champagne, lace, pearls and really wanted whimsical, fairy-tale like elements throughout both the wedding and reception. The wedding focused on blush and champagne + chandeliers, and the reception had lanterns, antique books, lots of candlework and crystal."
On her dream wedding sari:
"My wedding saree was Sabyasachi; I wanted to wear a saree because that's what women wear in Tamil Nadu to get married, but I wanted to add a modern twist, so the beading + net features of the Sabya saree did just that."
On her hair and makeup:
"I worked with the amazing Shilpa of Makeup By Shilpa - I knew I wanted "dewy" sparkly looks, and she was absolutely wonderful. For the actual wedding, I really wanted a long braid, to highlight my south Indian roots."
We'll be back in a flash, so don't move a muscle!
