How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my hubby in my hometown of Mobile, AL. He was finishing up his residency there and I was home visiting my family. We were set up by mutual family friends and had been talking for a few months already. I would say our relationship started with a base of a strong friendship with me recommending things to do to Mobile. We bonded over sports and after our first meeting, we knew we had something special in the works. He was just so sweet, with such a lively personality that it just drew me towards him. Following our first meet, we decided to start dating and within a few months, we just knew that this was it. As they say, when you find your soulmate you just know. 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
If I said "I was surprised" would be an understatement. We had already confessed our love to each other and were planning a trip to FL (where is from) to meet his brother and SIL. We had already met both our parents and facetimed with our siblings but this was going to the first meet with his brother. So needless to say, him prosing was not on my mind. We were at his folks' house (overlooking a lake) and apparently that morning his brother had asked him "What he was waiting for?" and he was waiting for the right moment. He already had a ring and that afternoon after lunch they took me out under the ruse of getting ice-cream. When we came home we got ready for a big dinner party that they had thrown in our honor. Well, Umang told me that before the party, we will be taking some pictures by the lake with the family. When I came down for the pictures, Umang drew me out by the lake where he had rose petals everywhere and whole set up ready. He got down on his knee and well, the rest is history. 
 
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.
All of his family is in FL and most of mine in AL. We decided to have the wedding in Rockwall, TX for the convenience of planning. When we were venue shopping we looked at a few places but the Hilton in Rockwall took our breath away. It was a beautiful venue and perfect for the vision we had in mind. We wanted a spring wedding as we are in love with florals and seemed like the perfect time of the year for us. Once the venue and date were decided everything just fell in place. We utilized Maharani Weddings for vendor choices and loved every single one of our vendors. They played an essential role in making our wedding weekend perfect, to say the least. My decor theme was colorful utilizing florals. We wanted everyone to have a great time and enjoy it to the max.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went traditional red (also my favorite color) for my Bridal Lengha with florals with light gold embroidery all over. When I first tried it on and saw the look on my families faces, I just knew that was it. Both the bride and groom outfits were from Asopalav in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. We are both Gujarati so we wanted something that depicted our roots. 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The whole planning process was fun and smooth. Maybe because we were doing it together, it took away any stress that may come with it. Both of us have really supportive families that were always there when we needed any guidance. Also, we had an amazing vendor team behind us, so we knew we had nothing to worry about. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The compliments we got were endless. From the beautiful decor/Venue, amazing food, my makeup /outfits, to the great entertainment for both Garba/reception. Even our bridal party outfits (which I designed myself) were adored by everyone. We were just happy that everyone had a great time and this will be a weekend everyone will take sweet memories from. 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I think my first look the morning of our wedding day will always be in my mind. The view and the look on Umangs face when he first saw me was the sweetest and I won't be able to ever forget it. 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I would say don't stress, let go, and enjoy your day to the fullest. Everything else will fall in place. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
I wore traditional gold jewelry that my grandmother and mom passed down to me which was the sweetest. My mehndi incorporated both Umang and my professions with a mortar & pestle for me (pharmacist) and a stethoscope & an ECG of the heart for Umang (Physician). I loved the personal touch and Samira did an outstanding job portraying it in my Mehndi.

Linthicum Heights, MD Indian Fusion Wedding by Mari Harsan Studios

There is nothing better for a Friday than a Fusion wedding, and that is exactly what I have for you today thanks to the wonderful images shared with us by Mari Harsan Studios! The first part of this tender fusion wedding album is filled with the couple’s first-look wedding photos, where debutant Indian bride Beverly, unveiled her inner goddess for the camera in a bespoken bright pink and purple silk saree that she brilliantly combined with a lovely low bun created by La’Glam Studios. Looking gorgeous in pink sarees with sweet violet floral bouquets, the bridal party made a striking combination with the bride’s attire! Together they look perfect! The exclusive Westin Baltimore Washington Airport was the fabulous scenario for this love story where Beverly and Prasad united their lives in marriage in a grand Hindu ceremony that exhibited symbolic and beautiful rituals. The union was performed in an enchanting stage designed by Sheila Smith that embellished the prime area with pink and cream drapes and added a touch of romance with hanging pink roses from the edges of the fabrics! See the adorable ceremony in our full gallery!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through our mutual hobby: sports cars
I knew he was the one because he's exactly like my baby brother, so patient, calm and respectful.  He helped me through a tough time and I couldn't have done it without him.  As a friend, he was so supportive-- I knew I needed to snag him up!!! :)
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He set up this elaborate plan to go visit all the museums in DC together. It was a beautiful day and I went to get dressed that morning with a baseball cap, sneakers, and a t-shirt-- full tourist mode.  He dressed up in a button down shirt and dress shoes-- odd......
He persuaded me to change into something a little fancier so we can go to dinner somewhere nice.  My suspicions were up!
 
We went to the botanical gardens and he popped the question in the rose garden :)
By the time I called all my close friends and family, they had already known and they were waiting to meet us for lunch and dinner.  They're all a bunch of tricksters!!!   
 
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.
Wedding planning was an experience!  I'd say the hardest part was creating a fusion wedding between our expectations for an American wedding (white dress, officiant, etc), Chinese wedding (my background), and Hindu ceremony (Husband's parents).  Balancing the parents' expectations with what we ultimately wanted was the biggest challenge.  A challenge which was greatly reduced with the help of our wedding planner.  He was the perfect balance because there is a lot of pressure on me to make a good impression on my husband's parents and make them happy.  But at the same time, my husband and I were raised in America, so we always picture the white dress and a big fancy wedding cake.  Our wedding planner was able to tastefully incorporate everything and break the tension.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My mother in law made my saree in India for me.  I told her my favorite colors and she did a great job picking it out. It was beautiful!!!
My white wedding dress was selected by my maid of honor and mom.  It was very fairytale which is what I wanted because I wanted it to be drastically different from the Indian attire.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The best part was that I found out that I'm extremely lucky to have my husband.  I mean, I knew he was awesome, but omg he is SO STINKING AWESOME! He had my back 100% of the time.  He didn't make a single decision without talking to me and we were an awesome team.  He is always looking out for my best interest and no one else's, it's such an amazing feeling to know there is someone on this earth who cares so much about how I feel and what I want.  What are the chances that we found each other, right?!?!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Many of our American friends have never been to a Hindu ceremony before, they had a lot of fun!  They all took turns throwing rice and flowers at us, so it was very interactive and there is no way I would have allowed that in any other setting!
I also think all the guests got to experience two different settings. We had our Hindu ceremony inside on the mandap, and then our American ceremony outside on the lawn.  It gave it two very dynamic experiences.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Seeing Prasad in his Indian get up!  He looks like a sparkling Aladdin!  (sorry is politically incorrect?)  But he was all fancy and looked so handsome!  
 
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 mandap, the flowers were beautiful, and the cake was DELICIOUS!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
JUST BE HAPPY! The day is about you and your husband, you can't control everything.  
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My knock out vendors were my planner, cake, makeup artist and photographer, they nailed it!
