How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Swiped right on Hinge, literally the first moment that we met!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were looking into buying a house together knowing that we were committed to one another. He had the builder call me and ask me to come in after work for a wet signature on some paperwork. I was so pissed because I didn’t think that I’d be able to make it in time and thought that the builder was so unprofessional. When I showed up, the lot on which the home we now live in was decorated and he was waiting there with our song playing in the background. It was absolutely perfect, intimate and so me!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My groom’s favorite color is red so I knew that I wanted something to follow that color scheme and I feel like I envisioned something very elegant, royal and traditional but modern. I didn’t really see anything that I fell in love with, so I worked closely with the designer who is now one of my really good friends! She designed a custom lengha for me that truly embodied me as a bride.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Picking out my wedding outfit and designing my parents looks and honestly watching it all come together on the day of. My family didn’t really understand my crazy attention to details especially when it came to their outfits but they were all so happy with the final product.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We got a lot of compliments on the decor details and aesthetics, but I think most of our guests still talk about how good the food was!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look at the mandir, walking down the aisle, the two of us on the mandap during the ceremony.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It’s ok to make the day about you and your partner because that is what it’s supposed to be!

The wedding was a celebration of love, beauty, and the magic that binds two hearts together forever.
