Maharani Erika, on her wedding style:
"I feel like I changed my colors 6 times, but I always kept coming back to purple and gold. I think purple flowers pop so beautifully against a white dress, and gold is so elegant and timeless. I initially wanted to have two different color themes, but ultimately I decided to stick with what I love."
On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream shaadi:
"I'm so blessed that we had the opportunity to showcase both of our cultures. For me, learning about my fiance's culture and traditions was one of the most exciting parts of the planning process. For my side of the family and for my American friends, it was a really eye-opening experience because most of them have never been to a desi wedding. The clothes and music is so different from a typical "American" wedding, and I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to learn about and share such beautiful traditions with them."
On the role familys and friends played:
"Hasan's brother, Vajid, planned most of the event alongside the event planner. Each of the table numbers were images from iconic video games that Hasan and Vajid played together as kids. It was a very special detail that meant so much to Hasan and was a fun way to incorporate some of his personality into the event."
