Priya weds Yogin
Priya and Yogin’s beautiful love story began when they met through mutual friends. After a few Facebook messages and dates, the couple knew they were onto something special! The two got engaged July 2017 and planned a wedding for December 2018.
Priya and Yogin wanted to be sure their wedding celebrations were everything that they had dreamt of and more, so they planned the events on their own with help from their families. As both of them are from Atlanta, they chose the gorgeous Sheraton Atlanta Hotel as the venue. Yogin’s family hosted the mehndi and sangeet night. The couple chose colorful décor for both events, which were simple yet vibrant.

The wedding ceremony was held during the day indoors. The elegant and royal theme matched Priya and Yogin’s wedding attire. The aisle leading to the mandap was decorated with flower petals and candles. Priya and Yogin also had a personalized hashtag that they made a part of the décor – #YoPriMarryMe.
Their wedding ceremony was filled with many beautiful and fun-filled moments. The couple had their first look at the pool courtyard. During the varmala ceremony, while Yogin stood on his friend’s shoulder, Priya’s family brought out a ladder for her to match his height. And after the saath pheras were over, Yogin picked Priya up in his arms, which was definitely an “aww-worthy” moment for their guests.
At the reception, the couple made a grand entry to the song “Bring Em Out” by T-Pain. The couple’s first dance was to Haley Reinhart’s version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Both families had something special prepared for the reception. Yogin’s nieces and nephews did a special dance performance. Priya’s brother-in-law entertained everyone with his melodious singing. Priya also danced with her bridesmaids and was joined by Yogin for one of the songs. But the highlight of the evening was when Priya’s sisters and cousins surprised her with a special dance tribute with a medley of songs to which she had danced at other events.
