Natasha and Sumit met in Chicago, at a wedding of a close family friend. After finding out they share many commonalities (and a convenient move Natasha’s sister to leave the two talking in private) their romance blossomed.
Cozy Autumn Proposal
The groom took the bride on a quaint tour of her favorite apple cider mill in the crisp season of fall when their families were getting to know each other better in Natasha’s Michigan hometown.
“The day of the proposal was really just like any other day,” the bride said, “Before I knew it, Sumit was down on one knee with the ring in an apple-shaped box!”
As soon as the bride said “Yes!” Family and close friends surrounded the happy couple with love and and congratulations.
“It was just like I always imagined,” the bride reminisced.
Colorful Lakefront Sangeet
Some of the brides favorite wedding memories came the night before the wedding ceremony at their colorful Sangeet celebration, overlooking a picturesque lake.
“We had somewhere around 15 performances from our parents, siblings, close friends and family and they were such high quality performances,” the bride said.”
“We knew everyone had spent a lot of time preparing and it meant the world to us.”
Natasha and Sumit were even up on stage partaking in the choreography alongside their closest friends.
“Over the course of the weekend and especially on the big day you realize that everyone has gathered to just celebrate the two of you. It’s overwhelming to be so loved and to feel like both of our families had been one forever.”
The bride was especially stunned when she first saw Sumit all dressed up before the ceremony.
The wedding weekend finished with a sunset photoshoot and ravishing reception at their hilltop venue.
The bride donned a mint green Tarun Tahiliani anarkali gown. The groom looked dapper in a high-collared white suit.
The couple made the choice to have the wedding elsewhere from both of their hometowns.
“Sumit and I had a semi-destination wedding in a place that neither one of us grew up in. Atlanta was our first home together and having an opportunity to bring everyone here was the real motivation,” she said.
“We both love the Autumn season and were really striving for a truly unique experience.”
“I honestly wouldn’t change a thing. It was truly my perfect dream wedding,” the bride admitted.
Her advice to other brides planning out their big day: Make sure your personality “as a couple” is seen in the details.
“I think that really helped to make our whole experience that much more intimate.”
