Preethi and Ben’s love story began when they were graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University. Over the summer, they were assigned to the same capstone project group and spent eight hours a day working in close quarters. But it wasn’t all work for the twosome! Afterwards, they would relax by getting slurpees at 7-11, watching Game of Thrones, and exploring Pittsburgh. They had the time of the life that summer and knew they were a perfect match. After an epic proposal in San Francisco, Preethi and Ben were ready to begin their wedding planning. The duo envisioned a Pittsburgh locale, and wanted the aesthetic to be breezy and fresh. They found the ideal spot in the gorgeous Phipps Conservatory and enlisted the planning and design experts at Divine Celebrations & Events to help pull off their special day. For the ceremony, Preethi wore a sari as vibrant as her personality, while her hair and makeup was beautified by Angelina Mascarenhas of Flawless Bridal Beauty. The grounds at the Phipps Conservatory were radiantly sunny as Preethi walked down the aisle. Guests teared up as the duo recited loving vows, promising to support each other forever. You can peruse all the colorful photos by Jorge Santiago Photography in the complete gallery.
We will return very soon with all of Preethi and Ben’s reception deets!
