Rajul and Mehul both looked so majestic on their wedding day. Rajul was dressed in a a red lengha sparkling all the way from her matha patti down to her to-die-for Christian Louboutins, while Mehul looked dashing in his Achkan and Pumas. The couple's bridal party looked equally stylish in coordinating purple saris and kurta pajamas. All the details are beautifully captured by Melissa Diep Photography
In our last post you heard from Rajul about how their wedding ceremony unfolded, but now our groom Mehul takes us back to how it all began when him and Rajul first met.
I was never a big fan of being set up with someone. I always felt those types of encounters ended up in awkward hugs hello, overly silent quite moments, and who can forget the end of the night! Kiss or no kiss? It just wasn’t the thing for me. One weekend I saw my cousin at a family wedding and he told me I should talk his friend Rajul to which I replied, “I’m really busy right now with work.” He didn’t push and we both soon forgot. A few months went by and in conversation he brought Rajul’s name up again. So I agreed and without thinking twice I sent her a message introducing myself. We talked several times before we finally met and when we did, I almost hit her with my car (I don’t think she knew it was me in the car)! At the end of a great night, in which we closed the restaurant down, I walked Rajul to her car. I opened her car door, and then she asked “I don’t get a kiss?” We went out the next night and it was even better than the first and it only gets better every day.
Next up Rajul and Mehul debut their reception outfits, and Rajul tells us how Mehul proposed!
