Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Our story began in December 2015 when we met on the infamous dating website "Coffee meets Bagel". Little did we know that our story had actually began a few months before then, when our parents had tried to set us up. Having heard the words "Biodata”, we had both instantly reacted with a big "NO”! Clearly, destiny had other plans for us. 
 
We officially first met on the evening of Jan 1st 2016 at the vibrant Graffiti Bar in Philadelphia. The spark of new years had waned for most but the fireworks continued for us. We knew we had something special to hold on to. Our love continued to grow over numerous shared moments that included brunches, travel and adventures. We both realized that we’re each other’s partner-in-crime!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I always knew that I wanted to do a red lengha. We went wedding shopping in Gujarat and tried on a few outfits, nothing really seemed like it was the one. So I took a break and started focusing on my husband and bridal party outfits. Our time for shopping was limited because I could not get more than 2 weeks off from work and we have a lot of family we wanted to visit as well. So one day I had made a decision that the next outfit I see and like, will be it. I got so lucky but I walked into a store and saw a gorgeous outfit on a mannequin -- which then became my wedding outfit :) 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I'd say choreographing and coordinating the dances. I've always had a passion for dancing and I was so happy that our closest friends and families agreed to dance at our wedding -- in the end I ended up choreographing about 7 dances! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I would say food and the music
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Just the entire day felt so magical. I know people always say it's such a special day. I think with a years worth of planning that moment is often lost but then the day comes and it's just something so unique and special to you and your husband. I am happy just the way it was. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't over think it. If you like it, go with it. If you don't, you don't. I know it's hard planning a wedding with a full time job etc. but try to take one weekend and enjoy 
 
I hope you have a fabulous Thursday, Maharanis! See you tomorrow!

Cincinnati, OH Indian Wedding by Priyanca Rao Photography

I'm super excited to finally unveil the grand wedding reception of Alisha and Savio! Once again all the refinement of the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati welcomed the newlyweds and the partygoers into a lush ambiance of blush pinks and charming blooms! This time the floral mandap was transformed into an inviting sweetheart stage that covered the most splendid newlyweds' table. This romantic creation is all credited to the genius team of Weddings InStyle,  while the four-tier wedding cake displayed was a creation of the bakery crew at The BonBonerie. I love Maharani's Alisha sleek side-swept curls, navy blue attire and dazzling jewelry set and also love Savio's enchanting black tux. Another great element is the custom made dance floor that Elephant Head Graphics created for the party and where our happy new Mr. and Mrs. danced the night away with the lively music from Opening Minds Entertainment's turntables! This unforgettable event was another big success for Sonal J Shah Events who masterfully executed this soiree to perfection. For all the inspiring details from this stunning event, head into The Best of 2018 edition and the complete gallery by Priyanca Rao Photography!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Savio and I met when I went to visit one of my good friends in Cincinnati, where I had lived previously. We hit it off, and began dating long distance! I knew Savio was "the one" when I never got tired of spending time with him. I can be introverted and re-energize with alone time, but I actually felt better and more energized after I spent time with him. He felt like family to me. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Savio proposed in Hyde Park in Cincinnati closeby where we had first met. We were at a get together with some of our friends when he suggested that we live to get ice cream at a local ice cream spot nearby. I thought that was peculiar for him but we both loved this place so we went. Shortly after we shared our banana split, Savio got on one knee and proposed. It was very special! We spent the rest of the weekend celebrating with our friends and family. 
 
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.
Upon starting the wedding planning journey, I knew I needed someone who had good taste, direction, and choices. I was in the midst of my busy fellowship and did not live in the same city as my parents so I knew planning was going to be a bit of a challenge. After doing some research, we reached out to Sonal Shah who really vibed well with all of us. I knew that we wanted to get married in Cincinnati, Ohio because it was where we met and got engaged. Sonal provided excellent options for both local and non-local vendors. 
 
What was really special about my hair and makeup was that my mom had been getting names and numbers of vendors even 10 years before I was engaged. Karuna Chani had come to Cincinnati, Ohio from NYC many years ago for a wedding, and my mom got her card. She still had Karuna's card and we called her up and booked her ASAP. It was the best decision we made because she showered my mom and me with positive vibes and was so much fun to get ready with. Every look that I had was exactly as I had wanted it, and I let her take the creative initiative with each step. 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My mom and I went to India to select my wedding clothes. Actually, because I was in the midst of fellowship, I only had 4 days in India. We had very productive days and made it happen in just a few days! I knew I wanted a red Sabyasachi gown before even going to India. The dress I chose was the first one I set my eyes on in the store. It was the best experience. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable process of planning was spending time with my parents. We talked on the phone very often, and I was lucky because my mom took the initiative on most of the planning. She coordinated with Sonal and all the vendors. Going to India with them was so much fun, and I will never forget how we worked hard together to create a magical weekend, and it was exactly that! We were not stressed or worried about the whole weekend because we knew Sonal and her team had everything in control going forward. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
My guests loved the food, dancing, and overall ambiance of the wedding. I heard the cocktail hour was amazing with Dave Sharma on the electric tabla! 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment that plays in my mind was our first look. Priyanca picked out the most beautiful and scenic spot in downtown Cincinnati with a portrait of a woman in the background. The look on his face and spending that time alone together was my favorite. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
My words of wisdom would - enjoy the process! It goes so quickly, and it can be stressful at times, but hire your vendors early on and have a good wedding planner.  Your weekend will then be amazing and unforgettable!
 
See you soon!
