Maharani Christy, on how she meeting the Raja of her dreams, Finny:
"We meet through family friends. Shortly after we meet I realized he was the one for me and who God intended for me."
On her Raja's memorable marriage proposal:
"During the engagement shoot he was nervous throughout the whole thing and at the end he ended up getting down on one knee and proposing."
On her wedding style:
"I wanted a simple but elegant look. I didn't want to do anything too extravagant but I wanted all the elements from the venue to flowers to be classy and elegant. I based the planning around color. I knew I wanted the main color to be dark blue i didn't pick the other color till I had gotten the bridesmaid sarees. After that I decided the colors to be blue and gold."
On her most memorable wedding moment:
"The first look was special, it was nice to be able to see each other before the ceremony and have that special moment with our family and friends."
On her hair and makeup:
"I had gone through Pinterest and picked some looks that I liked but I worked with Sonia to put everything I liked together and she just did an amazing job a few minutes after asking me a few questions and looking through the pictures I liked she had done the trial and brought everything together. I felt absolutely amazing and I can't thank her enough."
