Mutual friends from Alabama brought Sarika and Kishan together, who dated for four years until their surprise engagement. Sarika had just taken her first CPA exam, and the couple was enjoying a well-deserved Florida beach vacation when Kishan surprised Sarika with the big question. He set up an elaborate sand sculpture on the beach, complete with rose petals and the words written in the sand, and Sarika was overjoyed to say yes.
Sangeet Night of Sarika and Kishan The couple prepared to plan a large wedding celebration with 800 guests, with help from Kishan’s three older sisters and other family members who had prior experience with weddings. Sarika and Kishan chose a convention center in Georgia, not too far from Sarika’s hometown in Tennessee and a large enough venue to accommodate their many guests.

Sarika and Kishan each had their own mehndi events, pujas, and sangeet nights. Keeping the events separate allowed each celebration to reflect the bride or groom’s unique individual style.

Sangeet Night of Sarika and Kishan
For the wedding ceremony and reception, Sarika and Kishan chose classic elegance, including  traditionally decorated mandap, large gold centerpieces with white flowers, and a mirror-topped estate table wrapped with flowers. Kishan arrived in a horse-drawn carriage accompanied by his friends and family dancing in the baraat procession.

Their first dance as a newlywed couple was to “You and Me” by Lifehouse, and Sarika’s sister planned a flash mob including all of Kishan and Sarika’s cousins and friends.

It was a fun and surprising addition to the reception celebration. Sarika and Kishan are glad they began the planning process early, because they had so many guests and didn’t want to celebration to pass by too quickly. They suggest delegating tasks to family and friends who are willing to help, because it will relieve stress on the wedding day and allow the bride and groom to enjoy every precious moment.
