Hello, Maharanis! We're traveling to Michigan for this Indian wedding, courtesy of Everlasting Moments. Her makeup, done by Tammy Pore Makeup, looks flawless. And it's easy to see the bride adores her artistic mehndi design by Mehendiart. And how gorgeous are all her jewels?! I must get my hands on that tikka - so stunning! See more in the gallery!
From the bride, on how they met:
"Bobby and I are both from Michigan, but we met in Chicago five years ago! I was visiting friends in the city for the weekend and he was with a mutual friend...I didn't talk to him at the time but I Facebook messaged him the next day. I was coming back to town the following week and my friends and I met up with him and his friends. We hit it off right away, and haven't stopped talking since!"
On the proposal:
"Bobby's proposal was perfect. It was exactly what I had wanted. He took me back to the Shanghai Terrace at the Peninsula Hotel where we had our first date...He proposed to me at the end of dinner, and the cherry on top was the fact that he surprised me by inviting all our close friends and siblings to come into town. They all showed up after he proposed and we spent the night celebrating!"
On hair & makeup:
"I did several trials to find the perfect hair and makeup artists-they were amazing. I worked with three different artists-my makeup artist did all of my looks and I had a separate hair stylist for my sangeet and wedding who specialized in Indian brides, and for my reception I had my hair stylist who has long hair like mine do a more fun look, letting my hair down."
