To keep the spirit of their culture alive, today’s newlyweds Jenny and Shawn changed their western wedding attires for traditional outfits before starting the propitious celebrations. Our bride Jenny shined in a deep red silk saree with golden motifs which matched the henna paisleys designs by Heena Das Beauty adorning her hands. Pedestals Floral Decorators took the reception décor to the next level with a silvery sweetheart stage framed with two splendid columns that displayed a bed of flowers at the top! The violet hues reigned during the night from the florals to the Palermo Bakery’s majestic white wedding cake decked with delicate lavender buttercream flowers and a perfect “Always and Forever” topper. In the middle of a romantic midst, Jenny and Shawn had a timeless first dance accompanied by Aldo Ryan Entertainment’s music which House of Talent Studio recorded with the rest of the fantastic moments that included a lovely dinner, the speeches, and the cake-cutting!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
First time in New York...First time in Central Park...and I got proposed!!
I went to New York a few weeks ago thinking we were going to do our E-session that Friday and spend the weekend with the family. Little did I know Shawn planned a proposal in the middle of the E-session.
So after I landed in New York we headed over to Central Park later that Friday for our E-session. As we were walking around the park, I noticed Shawn was on his phone texting more than usual because when he is with me he barely uses his phone. I thought to myself “hmm I wonder what is going on?”, but I just ignored it and thought it’s probably his work or friends,(but it was our siblings who got there so early to decorate the place and trying to see how far we were from the spot, Love you guys!)
A few minutes later as we were getting closer to the spot, Shawn asked me if I needed to use the bathroom. I said no (little did I know he was trying to get me away so he can talk to the photographer, Sudeep about his plan). Since I said no, Shawn and Sudeep went to the bathroom and then a few minutes later they both came out together. I thought to myself, “Wow they waited for each other? “ After the bathroom break, we continued our shoot. We then took a quick break because we got tired of walking. As soon as Shawn and I sat down, the photographer said he will go ahead to find a good place to set up the camera and that he’ll call Shawn when he is ready. A few minutes later Sudeep called Shawn to head over. We got up and started walking over the Bow Bridge. As I was walking down the bridge, I saw candles and flowers by the boat dock to my right and I thought to myself “OMG someone is going to get proposed” and really wanted to see it but I thought we would run out of time since Sudeep is waiting for us. We continued to walk and then I noticed we were walking towards the proposal place that I noticed from the bridge and went “OH MY GOD!” That’s when it hit me. It was all for me… Words cannot express how happy I was. The place was so beautifully decorated with candles, rose petals and pictures of us and we had a whole audience screaming for us from the bridge. The funny thing is I was kind of mad at Shawn before all this. Before I came to New York I was wondering why he would set up an E-session without even proposing to me. I even tried to get him to cancel the e-session lol. But now I see it was all part of the plan and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect proposal.
