Magical Moments wedding of Pareeta & Maran
Most memorable moment during wedding When I was walking down the aisle and saw my mom, sister, brother, and brother-in-law at the mandap and the smiles on their faces. And of course my adorable nephew, Rishav, who had no clue what was going on!
Q. How did both of you meet?
I walked into a friend’s birthday party in NYC and happened to notice a tall, indian guy standing in the corner with his friends. As I walked by, his cousin (whom I knew from Atlanta) stopped me to introduce me to the tall guy. After that I couldn’t get the tall guy, Maran, to stop following me. And the rest is history.
Q – How long did you know each other before marriage proposal?
We knew each other for three years.
Q – Somebody told me that the proposal was very romantic. Pl
describe He told me we were having dinner with his best friend at our favorite restaurant. We get to the restaurant to find out his best friend, Samir, is running late. They give us a very romantic table for four in the corner. A little weird, but I don’t think anything of it. We order appetizers and then dinner, and realize Samir is only making for dessert. We ask for the dessert menu, and a red menu, stating “Final Course”, is given to me. To my surprise, I realize this isn’t the regular menu. As I open it, I see pictures of us and romantic poetry. I look to my right and Maran is down on on knee asking me to marry him. It was a dream come true!
Q – Who did most of the planning?
I did not realize how hard it was planning a wedding. I was very lucky. My sister planned our entire wedding. Her and my brother took over, so I wouldn’t stress over anything. I am blessed to have such wonderful people in my life.
Q – When did planning start?
He proposed to me the beginning of October 2008, and our wedding date was set for March 21, 2009. As soon as we got engaged, my sister started the planning process!
Q – Where did you go for honeymoon?
We went to French Polynesia for our honeymoon. It’s paradise on earth! I’ve never been to such a beautiful place. We went on a luxury cruise for seven days on the Paul Gauguin, followed by a five night stay in an over the water bungalow in Moorea. It was amazing and everything I could ask for.
