Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Jay and I had planned a trip to Bermuda for a short vacation. I had planned most of the details of the trip but little did I know Jay was planning his own surprise. We had gotten ready early for a nice dinner one evening and Jay suggested we go down to the beach to take pictures. As we headed down to the beach at sunset, I turned the corner and found the most romantic dinner set up with roses and candles all right next to the ocean.
I was completely surprised and just remember that feeling of being the happiest I’ve ever been with the man of my dreams!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
We made a family trip to India and I had always pictured a deep pink, almost rosy lehnga color. I was able to find just that! I loved the different colors my lehenga had- orange, yellow-green details
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone was most impressed with the decor and the food! I think we had made some great choices for the food with a lot of variety! The desserts made by the Ritz were also amazing!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first time I walked in and saw the ceremony mandap setup- it was so beautiful and perfectly put together. My vision that had been building for the past year of bringing a garden indoors was finally real! And I loved the cute elephants at the entrance
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.
I loved the decor for all my events- tried to keep the garden them throughout!
My haldi was at our house outside on the deck with a beautiful backdrop of green trees and a yellow open mini mandap covered in marigolds and fresh jasmine
My mehndi has a backdrop of a green wall with orchids fun henna decor! We had a bangle and bindi bazaar favor table for the guests
The Sangeet had a Moroccan then with 7 different food stations and lots of fun prints and color!
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We had unique beautiful wedding favors- henna design macaroons that were delicious! It was definitely something fun and perfect for an Indian wedding!
See you tomorrow loves!
