THE WEDDING DRESS + FLOWERS
My favorite part of wedding planning was dress shopping! It’s no surprise to anyone that knows me that I love fashion. But more importantly, spending quality time with people that love to see you happy is what a wedding is all about. Trying on beautiful dresses with the women I admire the most as my vision for my wedding came together was my idea of a time well spent. With the help of Tara Duffy, my bridal consultant at the Monique Lhuillier boutique in New York City, I chose a romantic blush gown (a unanimous choice).I continued the romantic theme into the decor, choosing shades of champagne and pink for the reception. Sharda Shenoy, of Elegant Affairs, flawlessly executed my vision using quicksand roses with heavy greenery to mimic a garden feel. The floral centerpieces looked like they came straight out of a garden fairytale. They were one of my absolute favorite things about the wedding!Anil complimented my beautiful blush gown in a sharp classic custom tuxedo. Parag Patel of Hattmanan Brook did an excellent job guiding Anil through the customization process, eventually choosing a three-piece notch-lapel tuxedo. Anil added a black Tom Ford bow-tie to complete the look.
