As I mentioned in this month’s Editor’s View, the Desh-Videsh wedding special truly gets me and the team excited! While working on the wedding stories, I get to talk with newlyweds who are full of joy and excited to start their newly wedding life. This issue brings you three very unique stories.
Let me start with Jay and Nilu. A bubbly, lively, Gator fan, Nilu spent most her adult life in South Florida. She is like the daughter I never had. Her four-day wedding was the talk of the South Florida community. Her parents, Natubhai and Madhuben, have been long time family friends and are some of the nicest people we have every met. Needless to say, they were very excited about their little daughter’s wedding! Nilu’s story teaches us that planning such a wonderful event takes time, detailed planning, and help from volunteers delegated by the bride.
The next story highlights Ekta and Dino’s wedding,another extravagant South Florida affair. Their four-day wedding celebration included events in Miami, on a Carnival Cruise, and ended with a grand finale in the Bahamas.
Last but not least, Tanaz and Gustav’s wedding details how Parsi weddings unfold. When you read their story, especially the romantic wedding proposal by Gustav in New York’s Central Park, one is reminded of a Bollywood love story. Gustav’s proposal video shows critics that men do know how to be romantic!
Enjoy these real life wedding experiences, and hopefully, you will get some inspiration as you plan your big event.
