How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Andres and I met in medical school under the romantic background of coffee and anatomy. As we got to know each other I realized he was becoming my best friend and who better to be “the one” than that.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We were in Galveston, Texas visiting his brother. We had planned to go on a morning run along the beach, which I tried to get out of because it was chilly outside. Eventually, he convinced me to go and along the way, there was a cardboard box with a puppy inside. On the puppy’s collar was a note saying his name was Ollie and the guy behind me had a question to ask. I turned around and there was Andres on one knee!
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Our first decision we made was to get a wedding planner because we were about to move to Chicago to start our residencies and knew planning a wedding in Dallas across the country would be hard. We met Meredith through a recommendation from a friend and everything after that was honestly pretty much easy! She got to know us and was able to make really personalized recommendations that fit our idea perfectly.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I entrusted that to my sister who was in India at the time. I knew I wanted traditional red for my Indian lengha and she designed the rest. It turned out perfectly. For my traditional American wedding dress me and my went dressing shopping alone after I had almost quit searching for one. Once I tried on the one we both knew instantly and got it on the spot.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Cake tasting, it was a dream come true for a sweet tooth like me.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think I everyone loved how we mixed our cultures throughout the night. Especially the mixes in music that our DJ, Dominic, played. It kept the dance floor packed the whole night.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Standing at the altar about half through our vows, church bells from a church across the street started playing and gave me goosebumps during an already priceless moment.
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
We did a lady sangeet at my parents' house the night before the wedding. It was as our way of showcasing as much of the vibrancy of Indian Wedding traditions into one night for us. The wedding reception we blended ou Mexican and Indian cultures through food and music. We had elotes during dinner, churros, chai, and kulfi for dessert. The music had mixed Latin songs with a dhol player playing.
Join us at the upcoming wedding reception, we are sure that you are going to love it!
