Love Ever More Photography and Daniel Ward Videography share with us a South Indian fusion wedding pictorial of a lovely couple who first crossed paths at a bus stop. While in the 10th grade, Sameena and Dinesh missed their buses and ended up sharing a cab. And now, years later, they will now share the rest of their lives together. Maharani Sameena looks breathtaking in her sparkling, white wedding dress as the highly-skilled Maliha Khan Makeup dolls her up for the Western ceremony in New York. Her loose curls along with a more subtle makeup approach allows the bride's true beauty to shine. There's plenty more to come from this momentous day, which has Elegant Affairs Inc. providing fabulous floral and decor, along with DJ RAJ Entertainment & Event Lighting serving up the beats, but for now, visit the gallery for more hair and makeup ideas!

From the bride, on how they met:

"We know each since 10th grade and first met at a bus stop. We had both missed the bus to our classes and he asked if we could share a cab. From there on, we became good friends and only really started dating 3 years later in engineering college. He was always very convinced that if we give it a try, it will work and it was that confidence that kinda drew me to it. Besides he kinda checked of all the boxes that most 18year girls look for - good looks, friendly, considerate, extrovert, good in sports and after 6 months of playing around the bus, I finally said, yes!"

On the proposal:

"To be honest, when the time was right I didn't really receive any on his knees kinda proposal, after all these years of growing together, weighing our options the fact that somehow even after 10years, we were compatible, had common aspirations towards life, loved each others company was a mutual inevitable decision for us! While not an engagement memory, but one of the most romantic things he's done while we were dating was on my 22nd birthday. He was based on Cyrpus and I was back home in India. With weeks of planning with my friends, I started receiving gifts a week before my birthday..different gifts from different friends on his behalf, and its only on my birthday it dawned upon me that the sum of the all those lovely gifts was 22! Though he was not there person, it all comes down to the effort a guy is willing to put to make it special, and he definitely scored some brownie points over this one!"

On the Western ceremony lengha:

"For our personalized walking down the aisle type of ceremony, I bought a Galina Signature wedding gown. I knew I didn't want a typical white gown, so after months of hunting I found this gorgeous fully sequined champagne colored mermaid shaped gown - it was classy and fitted perfectly! I teamed that up with a beautiful diamond set gifted by my brother."
