Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
As much as I love him our timeline is a bit ridiculous. He proposed the weekend after helping me expand my business Shanti Healing which is named after my grandmother. He was supposed to fly home on Sunday evening and little did I know he rented a car to go stay at my best friends an hour away so he can go check out the perfect location down PCH.
He did an amazing job & I am very surprised no one slipped even with me hosting a paint nite as an early mother's day celebration the evening before. All 4 of My best friend were pregnant at that time so one used the excuse of wanting to go check out pregnancy shoot locations and planned a girls day however little to our surprise as we were getting ready one friend was in the hospital giving birth and her text me was she wasn't feeling well so don't pick her up. We get to the beach I'm taking pictures of my friend and her husband and I feel a tap on my shoulder ... rest is the beginning of our future after 7.5 months of dating.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I really wanted a red gown however my mom, sister's & aunts were strongly against it. I actually found my wedding out our 1st day in India, we had to facetime my Mami but with the time difference our connection failed but after seeing how many stores carried the print that I had originally went to India with I instantly fell in love with my outfit
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Getting so many random dates with my mother's (mom & 4 aunts)
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Heard a lot of compliments on how everyone enjoyed the events. We had paint nite at my mehndi, churros & dipped ice cream at my reception, and raised a toast with our audience rather than kissing at our I dos.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The views on our wedding day, even though things were going wrong feeling that nervousness before I tapped his shoulder for our 1st look pictures. How family that rarely come to events all came to celebrate our love. Sooo many more moments
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Be ready for your MIL to pull last-minute shenanigans. Try to keep in mind no matter how organized you are, how much time, sleeplessness goes into planning there will always be something that goes unplanned.
Enjoy your weekend!
