How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Ravi in college over summer session in 2008. We were introduced by a mutual friend who suggested we should walk together to class since we were both heading in the same direction on campus at the same time every day. We actually didn’t get along at all at first, but that eventually changed. We ended up making "deals" with each other. I’d have a shopping companion at the mall and in turn, he’d have a partner to go to the theaters to watch ‘The Dark Knight’ again and again (3 times to be exact). During one of our shopping trips, he saw me fall in love with a pair of peacock earrings which I didn’t end up buying. On this same day, I mistakenly purchased two left feet red heels from a last sale store. He noticed all of this and bought me those earrings and red heels (a right and left) for my birthday. I was absolutely floored that he paid such close attention to these details. Fast forward to 2014 he proposed to me and after a 5-year engagement we FINALLY got married on October 2019. We learned to speed up our timeline and are due with a baby boy in November 2020. I met Ravi when I wasn’t even looking, but now I can’t stop looking at and admiring the beautiful life we made together.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think what people loved the most was the venue. We had searched for months both online and in person with multiple flights back and forth from Philly to Charleston. At one point, we started feeling defeated because we felt as though we were running out of options. On a day that we were set to return back to Philadelphia, we decided to check out Wild Dunes on a whim just a few hours before our flight and fell in love with it. We knew if we were asking our friends and family to come all the way to South Carolina from the Northeast, we wanted it to be a vacation for them. Our guests spent a few days extra exploring downtown Charleston, playing golf at the resort, and enjoying the beach.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I lost my grandmother to cancer in 2017. While she was sick, she would always say that she’d make it long enough to be at our wedding. Unfortunately, the cancer took her after a 2-year battle and she wasn’t able to see our wedding. It hurt not having her there for our most special day. She and my grandfather played such an integral part in my life that I felt it was important to have them play a big part in my wedding. My grandfather walked me down the aisle and my grandmother's picture had the best seat in the house.
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.
We both wanted a destination wedding, but due to some concerns of close family members not being able to attend, we decided on a resort near my hometown. We still wanted to incorporate a "tropical" vibe, so our mandap was made of tropical flowers and leaves and our aisle was lined with pineapples. Our cocktail hour was located in a “boardwalk” setting just off the beach, with a beautiful sunset view of the ocean. Cocktail hour also featured a local steel drum band to entertain our guests.
