Happy Friday, ladies! Let's get ready for the weekend by taking a look at Preyasha & Vikram's wedding festivities! So get yourself comfortable, grab a beverage and your notebook, and get ready to enjoy! For this installment, we'll be taking a look at an intimate outdoor photoshoot carried out by Photos By Ayesha. Through each of these shots, we get to see the most romantic moments of this lovely couple, just a few heartbeats away from becoming husband and wife. And we love every bit of it! Preyasha looked ravishing dressed in her red lengha with golden embroidery after being glamorized by Monica Hurui. And this look is no casualty, as this Maharani trusted her fashion needs to Nazranaa. And what a great decision it was! They not only made her look gorgeous, but they also enhanced her beauty with exquisite pieces of jewelry from their bridal collection. And as if that wasn't enough, Mehndi With Heena created a fabulous Mehndi that crowned this Maharani's look adding and an extra touch of traditional flair to an already flawless look! If you want to take a closer look at all the beauty surrounding this romantic photoshoot, head into our gallery. You are going to enjoy it!
Leesburg, VA Indian Wedding by Photos By Ayesha
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met on shaadi.com, I felt like I knew about two to three months into the relationship. I knew after he would make me chicken curry and was by my side during my medical licensing exams. It has always been so easy being with him. We are inherently compatible and always willing to compromise to meet each other halfway.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I nagged him and fought with him for years for a proposal. We dated about 4 years before we got engaged. After nagging him for 3 years I had given up. We went to an all-inclusive in Jamaica and he convinced me to wear something nice to this French restaurant. Even though I just wanted a lazy evening, I dressed up and we headed to dinner. He insisted on getting a photographer to take our photos on the beach. I was convinced the photographer was a sales gimmick and tried to convince Vik out of it. I tried to take selfies and was wondering why he was sweating bullets. At sunset, we are doing different poses for the photographer and he gets down on one knee and says, “since I’m in this position will you marry me.” I'm shocked and start giggling and manage to muster up “are you serious?” We have a private dinner at the beach and the Iberostar in Jamaica was amazing.

The food, nonstop dancing and venue
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
There is a moment when I was walking down the aisle and both Vik and I shared a moment. We were both tearful because only we knew the journey we had taken and all the adventures and setbacks we had been to get to this place. Vik is my person and I was grateful to be marrying someone that not only loves me but challenges me to grow.

The wedding is only one day regardless of what happens, what really matters the most is you marry someone who gets you.
