Maharani Sonali on meeting her Raja:
"Fate really is intertwining; two individuals unknowing of each other's existence with completely different paths somehow connected with a inadvertent shoulder bump in the parking lot of a grocery store, setting off a chain of events that impacted the rest of our beautiful lives.
Amazingly enough, we crossed paths again at an event and never veered from it again. Over time, I realized that my 'high school sweetheart' would one day turn into the man I would not only love and cherish but admire for his devotion to me and to everything around us. I realized that this was a man I could walk down any path with even with my eyes closed, this was a man who could take everything life would throw at us like it was his duty to turn good into better and better into excellent, because hardships would only fuel his and our experience."
On the most special moments surrounding the wedding:
"I had a few magical moments that I will always remember and which allowed me to smile and cherish every moment. First such moment came at the proposal; walking down a path secured by trees on both sides ending in a garden of roses in an unfamiliar place which turned out to be a 20th century estate, Old Westbury Gardens. My mind kept wondering if my Raja will pop out any moment to propose but then reality would set in that he was unavailable that day. As I got closer to the end of the path, my heart and mind became more in sync with disappointment that he wasn't here while wanting him to be here. I looked around and nothing, until suddenly I heard my Raja's voice coming from behind. In that magical moment of ecstasy, I recall no words muttered, only how fast my heart was beating and trying to escape my chest. 'Will you marry me?' followed by a 'Yes!' followed by a surprise gathering with friends and family.
Second moment came at one of the events while sitting on a palki staring at my Raja, soon to be husband, on the stage staring back at me like I was the first flower to blossom on earth."
