Harshil popped the question in Paris, France.
“We were on our way to a restaurant for dinner when Harshil asked the cab driver to pull over by the Eiffel Tower,” recalled Sheba.
“We get out of the cab and as we are walking around, I see this random table on the side. On the table is a rose, a small Eiffel tower, a small treasure chest, a poem and a wooden sign with check boxes that lists all of our goals together,” she said.
“Every box is checked except the last one which read ‘Get Engaged’.”
The rest is history.
Q: What three elements of the wedding were most important to you when you started the planning process?
Sheba answered with Decor, Personalization and Guest Entertainment.
“We knew we wanted a very classy modern style yet with touches of tradition,” the bride said, “From our program books, to our ice sculpture, to our customized decorations, everything was monogrammed or initialed with our names.”
They also wanted to make sure their family and friends were part of all the fun moments including dance performances, skits, rose petal and confetti showers.
Q: What was the most fun part of wedding planning?
The most fun part was planning all the small things like chocolate fountain, caricature artist, and pedicab entrance. All those little things made our wedding unique and memorable.
Q: What advice would you give to newly engaged couples about wedding planning?
“Everyone will have opinions but always remember this is your wedding. You can’t make everyone happy,” Sheba advised.
Q: What was the biggest challenge when it came to planning your wedding? How did you tackle it?
“I think the most important think is to stay calm because when you have such a big event it is easy to get lost in all the stress and forget to enjoy the moments.”
