We absolutely love beachfront weddings. There is always something magical when the peaceful ocean is the witness of the everlasting love our couples promise to each other. It can also be hectic and that is the beauty of marriages. Being there for your significant other through thick and thin. This time around, we take a trip to the paradisiac Cancun in Mexico to witness the highlights of Preeti & Giovanni's sun-fueled nuptials thanks to Pixan Photography's amazing work. The Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa indeed lived up to its name and hosted the dreamed bash of our lovebirds. Palm trees, sand, family, and love all came together to celebrate Preeti & Giovanni's commitment. Stunning Maharani Preeti showed up wearing a long white gown with beautiful lace details that totally mesmerized our Raja Giovanni. MVP Hair & Make-Up Artistry made her look even more enchanting, working with her hair and makeup and the result? A true Maharani princess! The magical nuptials were totally in tune with the overall freshness of the ocean's breeze over the tropical mandap, and we are just loving it! So stick around and check our gallery, ladies, inspiration is assured!
Cancun, MX Indian Wedding by Pixan Photography
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Preeti and Giovanni's adventure began in 2008. On an outing with mutual friends, Giovanni couldn't help but be drawn in. Fast-forward through many late night phone calls and countless reruns of Finding Nemo, they became high school sweethearts embarking on their first chapter as a couple as they began college apart. A decade and one cat later, they have since experienced many more chapters of their lives together. From snowboarding to skydiving, traveling and scuba diving, whitewater rafting and lots of camping, Preeti and Gio love adventures and are ecstatic for the many adventures to come!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
The surprise proposal took place in Newport, Rhode Island. Preeti had been drawn away for a "girls weekend" with her two best girlfriends. What Preeti thought was a dinner at a posh restaurant on Narragansett Sound turned out to be something far more memorable. On the Launch, confused why the boat had stopped, she turned around to see a set of sails eclipsed by the beautiful fall sunset. Surrounded by petals and candles, Giovanni stood at the bow with a bouquet of flowers and a little box. As Preeti approached, he got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. She said yes and the rest is history.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I purchased my wedding dress from Pronovias. From my first fitting, I absolutely loved their style and knew I was getting married in a Pronovias dress. I wanted something classic and fitted, but not too glam for a wedding on the beach.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved everything about the planning process. I'm a planner so thinking through all the details was so exciting for me.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they loved how laid-back everything was. It was all about my guests having fun, dancing, eating, and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The moment when everyone was seated for dinner. Giovanni and I were seated at our sweetheart table and that pretty much the only moment we really had alone for the full day. We were able to take in the surroundings, the decor and watch our guests enjoy the food and mingle.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Make private time with your husband-to-be a priority. It can be fun (and get a bit overwhelming) with so many guests around, but be sure to focus on getting some alone time so you can enjoy together.
Stay with us, ladies, more is yet to come!
