Welcome back, beautiful ladies! A wedding is an event that should be praised forever, for the only reason that two soulmates join their lives forever! Now, we will continue presenting you with the outcome of this fantastic event. The fascinating Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas was the venue that our lovebirds choose to celebrate their reception after a lovely ceremony. It was the perfect way to bring the wedding festivities to an end. The talent from Alpha Events and Décor managed to amaze us again with an elegant decor filled with a traditional flair that created a warm environment. It was just perfect! Our lovely couple showed after the religious ceremony to the venue, and they were received with an arch formed by their bridal party. With such fantastic well-selected music and lighting from our friend from DJ Riz Entertainment, who put everyone on their feet to dance during the whole night. Something to remark it was the beautiful look that our Maharani showed thanks to the beauty skills of Blushbar and, of course, the elegance from ELEGANT SAREE DRAPING who took care of the draping style needs of Ashely. She looked so fashionable! You will be able to admire this fantastic event thanks to the tremendous work from Neville Wedding Stories, who captured every single detail from that night! So make sure to visit today's gallery to take a closer look.
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
March 28, 2017, that is the day that changed my world forever. Robin and I were introduced through a mutual friend thinking that we could be a good fit. Our conversation started out as messages back and forth that turned into a 3 hour phone conversation that night. That same conversation happened every night until July 27th which was officially the first day that I met him. From the start he had me always laughing and made me feel special. He would always tell me stories that felt as though I was right there with him. We got to a point where even with the distance from Texas to NY we still managed to become best friends and tell each other everything.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Came to NY to see Robin during the first weekend of December. He had told me that he had plans to show off New York City because to him its the best city in the World. He told me we would go somewhere special to eat for dinner and see a show on Broadway. After getting ready to go out in NYC he took me to a Starbucks to grab something warm to drink for our walk. He knew I loved coffee but little did I Know it was really a place to stall because his brother and family was still helping set up the proposal site. We started walking towards an area by the water and I could see a bridge, As we got closer the place started to look more and more familiar. As soon as we got to where he wanted to take me before dinner I saw candles in a shape of a heart, rose petals, pictures of us on frames I knew exactly where this was. This was the first place Robin ever took me to when I first came to see him on a date but during the day time. As we were walking towards the proposal site he asked me if I recognized the place and I did. He got on one knee asked me to be his forever and I said YES! After that I turned around and saw both our families and friends running in joy towards us. It was truly a night to remember!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
So from most of our friends and families the stories they would tell us about wedding planning and the whole process to make the day special was grueling. We were dreading the process where in the beginning we would just say forget all the hoopla and lets just go get married at a courthouse and enjoy life together forever. We knew this wasn't ideal and we did want our friends and family to celebrate the day with us so the planning began. As days, weeks, months went by we quickly realized that both of us had a type A personality which got us ahead of the dates in which we needed to finish off items to be done from the checklist. By the time it was wedding week, we were mostly relaxing and ready for the big day with no stress. The planning process helped us get even closer and get to know each other in different ways.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Robin and I knew we wanted our wedding to be memorable, but we also wanted it to be special for our guests. To keep the party going we had one last surprise for our guests; a taco truck! Towards the end of the reception a taco truck came to the reception area for our guests to feast! After the wedding we were hearing great raves about how amazing the truck was and how it was an amazing idea to do that for the guests.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
We constantly talk about how perfect our "First Dance" was. With the help of our DJ (Riz) he was able to allow us dance on a "cloud" and top it off with fireworks to the perfect song; "Perfect Duet" - Ed Sheeran ft. Beyonce. During the dance I remember clearly just staring at Robin and smiling knowing that he was the perfect guy for me and I couldn't wait to spend the rest of my life with him.
