Good morning, Maharanis! It is time for a new love story. In this first installment, we are presenting you with the angelical wedding ceremony from Ashely & Robin. Rev. Dr. Abraham Mathew performed the wedding at the exceptional The Mar Thoma Church of Dallas Farmers Branch. Just a perfect place for an ideal love union! The ceremony was so beautiful that it is almost impossible to put it into words. Although everything was marvelous and charming, it was our gorgeous Maharani who stole the attention! Thanks to the fantastic talent from Joy Alukkas, she took her bridal fashion style to the next level and looked like a fairy tale princess! The beautiful makeup and hairstyle designed by Blushbar, raised this Maharanis' beauty in such a fantastic way that we are almost out of words to describe how much we loved her look! And not to mention the draping style from ELEGANT SAREE DRAPING that added a perfect and final touch to our Maharani's look. Just fantastic! What a beautiful way to steal everyone's breath. Just a dream come true from our lovebirds. If you want to relive this great moment, make sure to visit our today's gallery brought to you thanks to the marvelous work from Neville Wedding Stories. I bet you will be super inspired!
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.
Stay tuned for the outcome of this magical story. More to come!
