I met Giorgio during our residency, we were very good friends initially and it wasn’t until a year and a half later that our relationship began. I knew he was the one after seeing how persistent, sweet and caring he was.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Giorgio surprised me with a hot air balloon ride and proposed hundreds of feet in the air. I wasn’t expecting it all and was so excited!
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
The run around was a struggle but me and my mom went everywhere and figured it out. I also knew a lot of people who were married already so they gave a lot of great advice.
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My family and I took a trip to India and within 2 weeks we finalized invitations, favors, jewelery and all my outfits! It was hectic and not easy, but we had a lot of amazing help from family and we were able to get through it. My wedding outfit was customized by Ejaaz Couture and reception outfit was customized by Shyamal and Bhumika.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Weddings really bring everyone together. It was an excuse to hang out and maintain more frequent contact with all my friends and family.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Food and music!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The both of us worked really hard on our first dance, we did a slow dance which transitioned into a Spanish song which then further transitioned into a full blown Bollywood song and dance. The group performance that our friends and family put together was absolutely my all time favorite moment of the wedding.
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Our bridal party and family prepared a dance segment where people came out in segments. The performance started off with a video taped dance of my grandparents and then transitioned into a full dance performance by family and friends. It had all our favorite songs from growing up to present day.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress too much about the small stuff, the day comes and goes so fast. Focus on the people and moments instead of getting caught up with decorations, and small mishaps that are bound to happen. There’s always going to be something that you felt could’ve gone better but don’t worry about all that, just have fun with your new spouse and take in the fact that all your friends and family are here for you!
I hope you are ready because the second installment of this lovely union is just around the corner!
