Punam and Atit

Punam and Atit

It took Punam and Atit eleven months to begin dating after first connecting through an online dating website. Punam, a physician in General Surgery and Atit, a manager at ExxonMobil, became close friends after their initial contact online, but had their official first date in Houston at a World Series baseball game months later. Atit’s classy, traditional, and kind values impressed Punam right away.

In May 2018, Atit and Punam explored the picturesque landscapes, castles and beaches of Portugal and Spain together. On one such beautiful day of exploring the outskirts of Sintra amidst violinists serenading them, Atit got down on his knee and proposed. Atit’s beautiful and heartfelt words are forever etched in Punam’s mind as her ‘Yes’ is in Atit’s.

Atit and Punam sought the help of wedding planner Juan Carlos Castillo to coordinate and plan the details of their wedding. They chose Cancun, Mexico, as the destination for their wedding and reception due to the easy accessibility from Atit’s hometown Houston and Punam’s family home in Florida. Juan Castillo’s expertise as a wedding planner ensured that Punam and Atit were able to enjoy the process with weekly conference calls. A couple of quick trips to Mexico by the bride and groom were all that was needed to finalize the menu, venue, and décor.

An outdoor pithi ceremony with vibrant décor and Bollywood music at Punam’s home in Florida was one of the pre-wedding rituals. It gave the wedding guests a chance to meet each other. Their wedding week coincided with Halloween, so the bride and groom along with their guests dressed in costume and partied the night away. On the day of the wedding, Atit and twenty of his close friends rode a yacht and came ashore on jet skis. Atit astride a white horse accompanied by dhol players led the baraat to the ceremony.

Punam’s parents warmly welcomed Atit and escorted him to the mandap. After he was seated, the ring bearers, flower girls, and bridesmaids walked down the aisle. Punam, escorted by her father, looked gorgeous and stole Atit’s breath away as she glided down the aisle.

Atit and Punam made their grand appearance as the newly married couple to Calvin Harris’ “Feels So Good.” After their first dance to Arijit Singh’s “Pal ek pal,” Atit surprised Punam by picking her up in his arms as fireworks exploded in the sky marking their special moment. However, Punam, a trained and accomplished dancer, managed to surprise Atit as well with her solo performance to “Deewani Mastana” making the deeply touched Atit forget the words of his speech.
