Fenisha and Kishan

What’s the secret ingredient to a long-lasting loving marriage? For Kishan, it is falling in love with Fenisha and getting to know her with each passing day. Kishan knew in his heart that he wanted to get married the traditional Indian way. Growing up, he witnessed the special bond his parents shared and to this date, their love is still fresh and flourishing.  His search to find a perfect life partner who could fill his life with the same kind of happiness, love, and compassion led him to Fenisha. She too was curious to learn more about Kishan so she drove with her parents to Parrotsville, Tennessee, to meet him. The two met and instantly connected as they lost track of time talking and getting to know each other.  Fenisha and Kishan decided to make it official and held an engagement ceremony with the entire family of 70 people joining the celebration.

Fenisha stood by him through these difficult times, and Kishan realized he needed her by his side. He then planned an American style proposal on the bridge overlooking a lake at the Millennium Gates Museum. Fenisha couldn’t hold the tears back when she saw her favorite ring.  Fenisha and Kishan planned a traditional wedding complete with fun-filled rituals, including the Grah Shanti, Mehendi, and Pithi, all of which were attended by a large gathering of families, friends, and relatives. The garba was a vibrant affair with a pink backdrop, bright lights, candle holders, and delicacies. The traditional outfits and and memorable entry to the garba on a rickshaw made everyone’s day. The whole setup seemed straight out of a movie, especially when the couple’s four-legged furry friend Atlas Patel arrived wearing a traditional garba outfit.  On January 19, 2020, nearly 1,100 guests attended Fenisha and Kishan’s wedding at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia. The wedding venue was filled with the aroma of roses, hydrangeas, and carnations that were spread along the aisle to mark Fenisha’s entry. The spirit of celebration heightened as family members delved into the nuptial rituals. 

A beautiful starry night theme led to evening celebrations with a starlit backdrop and dance floor for over 800 guests. Fenisha and Kishan shared their first dance to the song “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. Fenisha danced with her father to the Bollywood song “Dear Daughterby Samarth Bhamari, and the performance brought tears to the eyes of assembled guests.

Trupti and Patrick

Trust, mutual respect, compassion and a deep love of Star Wars are the cornerstones of Trupti and Patrick’s relationship. They met in July 2012 and quickly bonded over stories and trivia about Star Wars lore. Despite their diametrically different backgrounds and cultures, Trupti and Patrick became compatible due to their respect and appreciation for their differences and each other’s cultures.

The next step became apparent with the couple adopted a puppy together. Being parents to the adorable but more-than-a handful puppy in their lives made them realize the resilience and stability of their relationship. So, in a modest kitchen, over a sink, Trupti and Patrick proposed to each other. No drama, no kneeling, and no ring, just an honest, heartfelt vow to love and cherish each other for the rest of their lives.

Trupti and Patrick chose to seek the help of a wedding planner to coordinate their “East meets West” inspired wedding. Trupti and Patrick’s wedding celebrated both their cultures with a mehndi party for the women and a rehearsal dinner as well as pre-wedding rituals.

The wedding ceremony featured purple and orange flower decor and a few creative elements from Star Wars. At the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland, Washington, the groom arrived in a white sherwani. Bollywood songs played in the background, while Trupti mesmerized all in her bridal outfit. As she walked in wearing a beautiful light orange saree, embroidered red veil, and green bangles, Patrick was bowled over by her beauty, charm, and elegance. The duo tied the knot as per the Hindu rituals.

Western pop music played in the background as the first dance kicked off the start of the reception. The newlyweds embraced each other and danced to “All You Need is Love” from the album Love Actually. The happiest day of their life segued from dancing to the cutting of the cake, and a scrumptious dinner. Guests and newlyweds alike celebrated on the dance floor into the evening.

Aditi and Mital

Serendipity brought Aditi and Mital together. Mital, born and raised in New Jersey, visited Vadodara, Gujarat, in 2011 to play professional cricket and decided to settle there permanently. Aditi was born and raised in Vadodara, and though she had a green card since childhood, decided to give the card up to settle permanently in India. For Aditi, it was love at first sight when she received Mital’s bio-data. The first time they fell in love with each other was over a piece of paper and three sets of pictures.

Once they met, it didn’t take them long to discover how well they got along. The couple clicked instantly as if they were each other’s soulmates. Mital chose Aditi’s birthday to profess his love and went down on his knees, which took Aditi by surprise. She considers it to be her best birthday to date.

Indian Couple At wedding Ceremony

For the wedding planner, Aditi didn’t have to look far. Her younger sister, Parita, showcased her event management skills with the brilliant decor at ceremonial events. To add a royal touch to their wedding, the couple chose the Ajit Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Rose and Rajnichanda flowers adorned the stage of the ring ceremony. Around 1000 guests arrived to taste over 100 culinary delights. Chickeen Masala, a Mumbai-based band, were invited to the Mehndi ceremony as entertainers, and the entire event exuded Rajasthani flair in decor of pink, white and gold hues. For the vidhi and haldi, the highlight was the Gujarati Bandhani theme decor and a sitting stage amidst the pool where Aditi and Mital were seated. It was a delight to watch their grandparents dance along with the rest of the family. The aura was filled with laughter, smiles, and happiness.

For the wedding ceremony, a royal-themed mandap was decorated with an abundance of red roses spiraling up the pillars, out into the open sky. Mital made a statement with his royal entry in a 1930 neon orange and white vintage car Pontiac from the King’s collection. Aditi walking down the aisle in a heavenly ‘Phoolon ki chadar’ held by her brothers and uncles. The wedding was so dreamy and gorgeous, everyone was mesmerized as the lovely bride entered. The four day event brought both sides of the family closer, and everyone swears by the fun and entertainment they had.

The reception was held at Suncity Resorts and Club in Vadodara, Gujarat, with over 700 guests in attendance. Music from Bollywood to Hip Hop filled the air. Aditi, being a skilled dancer, performed three dances, for her parents, Mital and her in-laws. And just like that, Aditi and Mital became two halves of the same soul together on their journey ahead.
