We’re all about the Bootie for today’s Tuesday Shoesday. Not only is the Bootie super comfortable as well as giving your feet the support they’ll need to be upright all day but they also give you added bling from your toes down to your ankles!
These beauties remind me of a modern day Cinderella. The crystal cutouts are perfect to see your peek-a-boo mehndi on your feet!
These are perfect for a nighttime affair. The dramatic color paired with the glistening rhinestones will add a flair to any of your wedding day ensembles.
This is one of my favorite shoes we have ever featured. The sheer netting ensures that it looks like you have a floating row of jewels on top of your feet and your mehndi surrounding the rest. This shoe would be perfect for a kurta or an Anarkhali where your feet are exposed.
This shoe is a true work of art. The intricate shaping with the small gemstones reminds me of a Sabyasachi Saree. The gold is a perfect color to complement any Indian Wedding ensemble and will be a shoe that makes your feel like a queen!

NFL season can be a challenging time for couples especially when there is a burning rivalry in the house! That’s why when we came across today’s CineMonday we knew we had to feature it. Pacific Pictures, the masters behind the camera, give us a little background on how today’s bride-to-be Komal decided to give her groom-to-be, Shalin, a surprise he would never forget!
“For engaged football fans Komal and Shalin, the first step in joining their families would come when Komal would reconsider her lifelong dedication to the New York Jet’s in favor of reluctant allegiance to Shalin’s Baltimore Ravens. A big step for Komal, as in the words of Komal’s brother, “Everyone knows the Desai family is a Jet’s family!”
At their engagement extravaganza in Baltimore, Komal wanted to take it a step further; to show her undying love and support for Shalin in the biggest way possible. Always the one to pleasantly surprise his fiancé, Shalin would now become the unwitting subject of the surprise of a lifetime for any Ravens fan. Totally unbeknownst to Shalin, Komal had arranged to walk Shalin blindfolded onto the 50 yard line of M&T Bank Stadium, the home of the Baltimore Ravens. The big reveal would also include a full blown announcement of the starting lineup of the Parikh and Desai families in true primetime NFL fashion.
We were especially excited to take part in planning the big surprise, from convincing Shalin we just wanted to do a “casual video shoot” around town, to writing the script for the M&T Bank Stadium announcer!”

If I had to do my wedding day over again I am pretty sure I would want to have today’s couples same exact wedding! Charu and Navin were married along the beaches of Santorini with Vangelis Photography by their side capturing every moment from their big day.
I’m not even sure where to start when describing this wedding. Right off the bat I was taken away by Charu’s mehndi which had subtle pops of blue weaved throughout. From there the pictures only got better with shots of their poolside and beachside wedding setup. Decorated with deep pink and orange fabric their mandap was a site for sore eyes against the stark blue waters- breathtaking!
Make sure to visit the photo gallery to see all of the details from today’s wedding!
The bride shares where her groom proposed:
Navin and I actually spent 5 years in the same boarding school in Malaysia but were never friends (we just knew of each other’s existence). We connected 10 years after leaving high school as we both worked in the nonprofit sector and wanted to share and learn from each other’s experiences. That awkward first meeting turned into an unexpected love affair! Navin proposed in 2014 at Thermes Luxury Villas while we were on vacation in Santorini (he knows how much Greece means to me as I’ve been there 9 times).
Charu looked gorgeous being escorted down the aisle in her pink, orange and green lengha. The guys ensembles were perfect for a outdoor destination wedding with pops of orange and blue!
Thankfully, Navin too fell in love with Greece and although we both wanted to get married in Greece, we knew it wasn’t going to be the most convenient location for our family and friends. Fortunately, our attempt to have the wedding at other ‘practical’ locations didn’t work out and as soon as we discovered Poema Weddings, we knew a wedding at the exact spot Navin proposed was now a very real possibility. It really felt as though the entire universe had conspired to make our Greek wedding dream a reality!
Everything about this reception decor is perfect. From the open villa concept, dark floors paired with light linens and all of the added personalized details made this reception one to remember. I love how they hung the escort cards from a vintage room seperater and added cute signage to their bar. To top it off the bride and groom made sure to leave their mark with a spectacular fireworks show!
Thank you so much to Vangelis Photography for submitting this stunning wedding. I know it’s not one I will soon forget!
