How did you meet your Groom, and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Nikhil (Nik) at one of my best friend's weddings. Both of us are major foodies, so it's fitting that our mutual love of food is what prompted our initial meeting. Nik was wandering around, looking for a fork, and he happened to look my way. I smiled at him, and our connection was magnetic. We flirted and exchanged numbers. Needless to say - he forgot all about that fork.

I knew he was the "one" by our second date. There was a major blizzard, but that didn't keep us from meeting up. He picked me up at Penn Station and delivered me a pair of warm socks (mine were soaked and frozen) as I trekked my way to meet him. We found ourselves snowed in at a cozy bar with a grand total of 2 customers. We talked all night over some amazing food and drinks. He is so charming, witty, and handsome he knocked my socks off...literally and figuratively. There was no turning back.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had been dating for 2 years. We were driving up to Cape Cod for the weekend when he randomly asked, "So when I decide to propose...how should I approach your parents?". My heart sank. Not only had he not bought a ring, but he hadn't even THOUGHT about it. I gave a simple answer, and our weekend continued, albeit grumpily from my end! He brought me to a quiet beach before a nice dinner the next evening and got down on one knee behind me while I was looking at the ocean. I turned around and saw him grinning from ear to ear, not to mention that rock! His goal was to throw me off and completely surprise me with his proposal; well, he succeeded.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
The element of nature has always been important to us when it came out to picking our wedding venue, and we especially wanted to be married off of the coast. We found this gorgeous venue on the eastern Long Island shore and thus began the desire to incorporate nature-themed colors. I concentrated our attention on natural flora colors like sage, deep greens, corals, gold, and various shades of pink, ranging from the blush pink roses to the hot pink blouse I wore for my ceremony. The colors complimented the beautiful ocean and sand backdrop.

As for the outfits, I wanted to represent my Maharashtrian roots by wearing a traditional Marathi sari and jewelry for the ceremony.  During the reception, I wanted to stand out and wear something, not many others had worn before. I was inspired by designers like Gaurav Gupta and had my reception outfit designed and tailored for me by Magic Mirror in Mumbai.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The food tasting was SO much fun! We spent the night trying countless dishes, trying to keep track of our likes and dislikes, but all the food tasted so good that we very quickly lost. By the end of the evening, we both needed to nap off the food coma prior to driving home! Moghul Catering was absolutely fantastic, and our guests were impressed.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The energy! Our friends and family brought nothing but positive vibes and a monumental level of energy throughout the entire experience. All of our friends kept telling us, "The love was so palpable that night!" From beginning to end, it was a constant party. We are really blessed to have some amazing people in our lives. I think the DJ really brought the floor together too.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
As per Marathi tradition, the bride is brought out by her maternal uncles to the groom. Well, I have 7 of those, so they actually carried me in a traditional Dholi to the Mandap. I came out to Taylor Swift's instrumental of "Love Story," carried by my family. I felt like a princess coming out.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
I know it's easier said than done, but try not to worry so much. A wedding is a celebration of two people loving and committing to each other for the rest of their lives! Sometimes, planning can get overwhelming, and that can be forgotten. Don't feel pressured, and do what's best for both of you. The day will shine because of the love you two will bring to it.

Thanks for being with us today, and don't forget to be back for our daily and lovely updates here!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in pharmacy school at St. John’s. We were friends for a few years which led us to become closer and finally we started dating during my last year of pharmacy school. I knew he was the one when we had just started dating and he asked me to come over to watch Kal Ho Naa Ho. Haha just kidding, but he definitely got points for wanting to watch Indian movies with me  It was a series of small moments over time that made me realize he was the one 

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He proposed in Switzerland! He was originally going to propose at Jungfrau also called the Top of Europe as it is the highest point in Europe. When we got there he saw it was slippery and freezing so he decided to hold off and propose at a different part of the trip. One night we went on a random walk in Lauterbrunnen and ended up walking on a trail that led us behind a waterfall. He was like wow this is the perfect spot, but he realized he didn’t have the ring. He was pretty upset he missed out on that spot. So then he finally proposed on the last day of our trip on one of the many bridges in Zurich during sunset. It was a beautiful spot to propose and I loved it!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted a traditional red lehnga. My mom actually went to India to buy everything for me and I chose my outfits over FaceTime! Thank god my mom has good taste! I’m always going to be thankful that my mom took on the stressful job of wedding shopping for me.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My favorite part of the wedding planning was working together with Travis because I realized what a good team we were :)

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Remember to take a moment to look around on your wedding day and just take it all in.

That is all for today, ladies. See you tomorrow for more!
