Indian couple date

Millennium Park

Jaina Patel, a Clinical Pharmacy Specialist, was introduced to Umesh Patel, an Aerospace Engineer, through a mutual friend in 2011. Little did the two know that a casual introduction will lead them down the aisle to their “happily ever after!” The couple’s first date was so special that Jaina and Umesh remember it as if the date was just yesterday.

Umesh wanted to be sure he chose the right moment and place to propose to Jaina, so he planned a summer trip to Chicago. However, on the day he planned to pop the question, Jaina fell ill. Before their trip came to an end, they went to see Millennium Park, and it was there that Umesh asked Jaina to marry him.

Jaina and Umesh chose the Signature Ballroom in Suwanee, Georgia, to be their wedding venue. The couple took on planning the entire wedding themselves, with the help of their family and friends.

Bhangra.

hip-hop music

Bollywood

Jaina’s pre-wedding events included a mehndi night, pithi, and grah shanti ceremony all at her home. Since she is from Zimbabwe, all these events had an African theme, and her family members handmade all the decorations themselves. Her cousin, Rajuben, made paper lantern centerpieces, with an African sunset and elephants painted on them. Her brothers-in-law made the stage backdrop, and her aunts and cousins made garlands and small flower arrangements for the decoration. Umesh’s family celebrated by doing a pithi and grah shanti ceremony at his home.

For the wedding, Jaina and Umesh chose a traditional color theme of red, white and gold. Umesh came to the venue in a Mercedes driven by his best friend. For the baraat and ceremony, their DJ played a mix of Bhangra, Bollywood and hip-hop music.

Indian Wedding reception

At the reception, the hall was decorated in a peacock theme, in colors of blue and turquoise. Two types of centerpieces adorned the tables – one was a vase with blue orchids and blue stones in them, and the other had blue and purple flowers with peacock feathers. The couple’s cake fit the theme with a peacock on top of it and edible feathers going down one side.

Elvis Presley

Can’t Help Falling in Love.

At the reception, their parents entered first, followed by their siblings and other close family members. Umesh and Jaina entered to “Mauja Hi Mauja” from their favorite movie Jab We Met. Their first dance was to the classic Elvis Presley song “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
