From the bride, on the proposal:
"In May of 2013, my husband planned a trip to Napa Valley and San Francisco. He knew that I had always wanted to visit Napa Valley. I had no idea he was planning on proposing there! He took me to the wineries during the day and then told me we had dinner reservations at Auberge de Soleil. He rushed me to get ready so that we would be able to be there prior to sunset. My husband took me to the balcony of the restaurant with an amazing view and proposed. We had a special chef tasting menu and champagne and strawberries awaiting us in our hotel suite. Such an amazing weekend!"
On the wedding style:
"I always wanted to have my wedding at an estate with lush gardens and beautiful landscapes. The Village Club of Sands Point proved to be the perfect setting. I knew from the start that pink would be the central theme of my wedding. Pink is a fun and lively color and perfect for a summer wedding set in a garden. I wanted a lot of roses in both the ceremony and reception. I love circular mandaps adorned with roses on the top. I knew that since my wedding sari was red and gold, I wanted the mandap decor to match."
On the planning process:
"I enjoyed visiting all the vendors with my mom and going over the color scheme, menu, bouquets, cake, jewelry and all the details that go into planning a wedding. We are thankful to have had Glamorous Event Planners to guide us along the way."
On her hair & makeup:
"I spent a lot of time choosing my hair and makeup for the wedding events. I wanted a really unique headpiece, and was thrilled when I found it just weeks before my wedding. I wanted a chic updo with red lipstick and gold hues for the makeup that could be accentuated by a headpiece. For the reception, I wanted mostly pink hues for the makeup and voluminous curls. My wonderful stylist worked with me to make me feel and look my best!"
On the jewelry:
"I loved choosing the jewelry for my wedding. For the ceremony my mom presented me with a gold set during my bridal shower. I enjoyed wearing this amazing set. I knew for the reception I wanted to wear my grandmothers diamond necklace. Fortunately I was able to find earrings and a tikka to match."
On the cake:
"Our wedding cake was another special part of the wedding. Each layer of the cake was a different flavor such as raspberry mousse/chocolate and pistachio and butter sponge cake. The cake was decorated by the wonderful stylish events."
On her fave memory:
"My fondest memory from the wedding is dancing with my husband and living in the moment. We are both physicians in training and don't get to spend much time together. It was so special having our photoshoot, first dance, and just laughing and enjoying with our closest friends and family."
Such an adorable couple! Hope this film made your day, my luvs!
