Maharani Caitlin, on shopping for the perfect reception lengha:
"I spent hours on Pinterest then spent a weekend with my husband's family on Devon Street in Chicago and bought my beautiful reception lengha at Sahil."
On her most memorable wedding moments:
"The dances our family members did were magical, as were the speeches given by our loved ones. Finally, getting to eat lunch in my hotel room, alone, after the ceremony was magical! We were so hungry, we didn't even untie the knot from the ceremony."
On her and Raja Sri's first dance song selection:
""Can't Help Falling In Love" by Elvis Presley. We heard it randomly on the trip to Cape Town when we got engaged and decided that was going to be our first dance song."
On her unique wedding cake toppers:
"Our cake was so delicious and pretty. Almond cake, raspberry filling, and real French buttercream frosting. My mom spray painted two plastic lions (a male and female) with gold spray paint and that was the topper (our last name, Kesari, means lion). Now those lions sit on top of our refrigerator as a daily reminder of our special day."
What a fabulous affair Caitlin and Srikanth had, right Maharanis? We'll be dreaming of it all weekend! Make sure to stop by our Vendor Guide to get to know our newest Platinum members!:
