How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ravi through Instagram. My profile at that time was not private and I was obsessed with hashtags! My family would always tease me because I would have so many hashtags for each of my pictures. Anyway, one day he came across my picture and luckily he went to my profile. There he saw an old picture of me when I had my red hair. Yes! It was the red hair that started this love story. He immediately decided to direct message me on Instagram. Lucky him, I replied after checking out his Instagram page. He had green eyes! Brown guy? Green Eyes? He totes had my attention! Months after Facetime, Phonecalls he finally came down to Houston to see me in person. I knew he was the one when I saw him and just can’t explain that feeling. It was just right and so magical. I was happier than I had ever been. 

 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Ravi planned an amazing surprise trip to Tulum, Mexico! Everything was just so magical. Ravi made sure I had the perfect outfit for the proposal. He also made sure I had clothes to wear every day we were there since I had no idea where I was going! I found out at the airport that we were going to Tulum! However, at that time I still didn’t know that it was going to be one of the most amazing trips of my life. We stayed at a super quiet and relaxing Airbnb. Saturday of March 23rd, he took me to this amazing rooftop restaurant. It was such a romantic and intimate environment because of the atmosphere near the beach. Right before the sun was setting he popped the question that I had been waiting to hear for a VERY LONG TIME. I did not even take a second to say, YES! 

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.
I always had an idea of how I wanted my wedding. I mean who doesn’t right? However, we had decided that we did not want a wedding planner. I decided to do everything from A-Z, literally. I admit it was so so hard but super rewarding at the same time. I had my own checklist, budget planning list, and added all details/important meetings to my calendar. However, I am so blessed to have had my family right behind me holding my back. Even though, I planned my day I just don’t think I could have done it without them because they were also a huge help throughout the whole wedding. What kept me super positive is that I always said at the end of the day we are just throwing a big party! 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I love the color pink and florals. I always knew that my wedding lengha would be in the colors of pink with florals. I found my bridal lengha the very first day we went shopping in India. What turned out to be more perfect was that Ravi found his outfit the same day and it matched exactly with mine. That is when I knew that was one! 

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I think the most enjoyable part was that I got to plan the entire wedding with Ravi. A lot of men don’t really care to be a part of the planning processes. However, I guess I was lucky that Ravi was just as excited to be a part of planning our day and we did it together. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I believe that our guests loved everything about our wedding. The peacocks were amazing and so beautiful. We really weren’t looking to spend too much on our wedding so it was really hard to get someone to make huge peacocks made of florals because it is costly. However, when I found that someone to do this for me I almost cried because it was a dream come true when I saw the mandap and a lot of our guests loved it. We also had fireworks which our guests enjoyed so much! 
We separated our days for Wedding & Reception so I think our guests enjoyed some time to also relax between our functions.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I have so many special moments that are on replays in my mind. The very first time we saw each other during our first look. The moment that I walked down the mandap and they removed the drapes that were covering his face and I saw Ravi’s smile. The moment when he danced to our favorite song “Saree Ke Fall Sa” during the reception. The way he looked at me that entire weekend. 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I know that we tend to go a little crazy but turn that craze to sane and just keep being positive. Don’t forget at the end of the day the only thing that matters is how much you and your to be husband love each other. 

See you in a bit for some inspiring ceremony scenes that you don’t want to miss!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
The story of Sal and I started with a ridiculous amount of chemistry —CHEM101 that is.  In the spring of our freshman year at the University of Pennsylvania we bonded (pun intended) over our beginner chemistry class, and not too long afterward, developed a slightly more exciting chemistry together.  After much consideration, we made the decision that religion (Sal is Ismaili and I am Hindu) was too big to overcome and went our separate ways to medical and business school.
 
Sal and I stayed in touch through the years. By coincidence (some would say fate) we ended up in the same cities for my away rotation and his internship.  While our run-ins were infrequent, they kept us connected, and our friendship stood the test of time.
 
According to Sal, “In late 2015, Sarasi and I caught lunch as she was passing through Dallas. 10 years after first meeting her, I had the sudden realization that I knew who I belonged with, and I belonged with her.”
 
Much to my surprise, Sal called me not too long afterward and said he was coming to Seattle “on business.” We had tough conversations but came to the realization that though our religions were different, our morals and goals were the same.  We also came to the conclusion that love should and could not be limited by religion. The rest is history, but we can truly say that our relationship has been built on years of friendship and support.  We were there for each other through exciting and trying times, so it only seemed natural when chemistry once again appeared.  Our relationship has continued to grow and we are unbelievably excited to begin this new journey.
 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Sal and I spent two years in a long distance relationship with him in Dallas and me in Seattle. Both of us value and love our families tremendously, so when we started having conversations about our future, we knew that we wanted our extended families to meet.  We arranged to have our families gather during a weekend in Arkansas.  Little did I know that Sal had more planned. 
 
I was supposed to take a Friday evening flight out of Seattle.  I was on my way home to pick up my suitcase when my attending called and said there was an emergent case going to the operating room.  Though I was not on call, I knew that it was a unique case, so I called Sal and asked him to delay my flight.  He obliged.  Thinking back on it, I can’t believe how calm and supportive he was of my career despite all of his weekend plans and the potential that I wouldn’t make it home in time.
 
The case went well but took some time.  I drove straight to the airport without anything I needed for the weekend and boarded the red-eye flight.
 
I landed in Little Rock the next morning.  My sister drove me to my parents’ house for lunch. When we got to my street, my dad and niece were standing at the corner with a tiger lily (my favorite flower) in their hands.  I got out of the car and saw both our families spread out along the street with flowers in hand.  Each set walked me a little farther down the street telling me how much they loved us and recounting funny and emotional stories.  I literally laughed uncontrollably at some points and cried at others.  My mother was at the front door and led me inside the house where there was a pathway of petals leading to our back porch.  
 
When I stepped out onto the porch, I was greeted by Sal as well as a pianist and violinist playing our favorite song!  Sal proposed and we spent the rest of the weekend celebrating with our families. It’s crazy to think that, had things gone slightly different, I may not have made it to one of the most important weekends in my life!

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Sal and I incorporated a lot of our families’ traditions in our wedding but had the most fun planning the less traditional aspects.  We realized that we would have all of our loved ones in one place for an entire weekend just to celebrate us! This made us think about how amazing it would be if we could spend at least part of the weekend giving back instead of focusing on ourselves.  We decided to add a service/seva event to kick off our wedding.  This was probably the most rewarding part of the weekend.  Our family and friends ended up making 20 prosthetic arms for people around the world who have lost limbs in tragic accidents.  The event couldn’t have been filled with more love. 
 
We also added a twist to a few wedding traditions.  We both love to dance, so instead of waiting at the chapel, I was carried out in a Doli to meet his Baraat and join the dancing! We also came out first at our reception so that we could announce our family and bridal party.  This meant a lot to us because they made the weekend come together.  I think that planning and looking forward to these unique events and moments was what kept wedding planning fun and exciting for us.  
 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Sal and I are different religions. We really wanted to incorporate both our families’ traditions and share them with our friends in a fun-filled and high energy way.  I think our guests enjoyed experiencing all of the unique traditions and seeing them come together.  One of our friends posted on social media that our wedding displayed, “profound respect for one another’s faiths, beautiful decorations, and a couple head over heels in love with one another.  God is too big to fit into one religion, and so is love.” This meant so much to us.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment that most replays in my mind is the very end of our Pithi / Sangeet. As the night drew towards a close, the DJ announced he was playing the last song, and then proceeded to play the most perfect song imaginable -- Marry You by Bruno Mars. It was fitting because while the night was ending, the very next event (the following morning) was our wedding! Sal and I found each other on the dance floor, and just got totally lost in dancing to the song together. The energy we had in those moments, the energy of our friends and family around us as they danced along with us and celebrated the song and our forthcoming marriage, was indescribable. For as long as I live, I cannot imagine having more fun dancing to a song that I had dancing to "Marry You" that night. While the entire weekend was perfect and amazing in so many ways, that moment stands out.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
