Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
During my fourth year of dental school, Indy and I planned an impromptu trip to Paris. I spent a lot of time planning out the whole trip with Indy, little did I know he already had it all planned out! Our first morning in Paris, we went to Montmartre, my favorite part of Paris. It was a bit of a gloomy morning but Indy insisted we go anyway. Once we were there, Indy proposed in a garden in front of The Wall of Love and had a photographer waiting there to capture the moment! She captured the entire proposal as well as the snow flurries that begun falling immediately after he proposed! We spent the next 5 days enjoying everything that Paris has to offer.
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 could not have planned this wedding without the help of our wedding planner, Therese (Electric Karma), and our families! It truly was a team effort with each member of our family playing a big part. After visiting Cabo with my parents and Therese, we immediately chose Paradisus Los Cabos as our venue. Once the venue was in place, Therese guided us in picking all of the vendors, most of which she knew personally. We got lucky with the most incredible group of vendors who we worked with closely over the course of one year to plan all of the details.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was the amount of time that Indy and I spent talking to our parents and sisters and bouncing ideas off each other throughout the year. I felt that both of our families really bonded through the wedding planning process. The brunches, family "meetings" and phone calls made the planning process fun! Especially because Indy and I lived in New York and Boston, respectively, for half of the planning process, so it was nice being in touch with our family in Texas.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved how much detail went around planning four days of events. It is very rare for an Indian wedding to stick to a schedule, but we were able to make it work! We had our wedding in Cabo San Lucas at the Paradisus Los Cabos resort, a relatively small resort which means our wedding took over the majority of rooms with all ~240 guests staying there. We had beautiful weather the whole week and Cabo is such a breathtaking place to spend time with friends and family before getting married! Everyone was in vacation-mode and had plenty of energy for the four days of fun that we had planned! Guests also had plenty of time each day to enjoy the resort, beach and the town since we had the Sangeet, Wedding Ceremony, and Reception each on a separate day.
Everyone also loved the food! The resort had a variety of great sit-down restaurants and we were lucky to have Chef Gaurav Anand fly in from New York City to cater our wedding! He curated a wonderful menu of Indian, Mexican, and International dishes for the Sangeet, Wedding Day, Cocktail hour and Reception. He put together an incredible plated Indian dinner for our reception which was the one thing I really wanted all along!!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I just keep dreaming about the whole week of countless amazing memories! We truly had the best week of our lives in paradise with all of our family and friends. We're already planning a reunion trip!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There are so many aspects to planning a wedding that I never even thought of before this whole process. Having a knowledgable wedding planner, such as Therese, who has done this almost 1,000 times (literally!) really helped us achieve everything we wanted! Without her knowledge and experience, we would have been overwhelmed, especially since we chose to do a destination wedding.
If you were inspired today, wait to see what we have prepared just for you tomorrow. So stay tuned!
