Tell us about your love story!
We first met at our dental school in Indore when we were 18 and still kids. It all started with friendship, then best friends and today after 14 years since we first met we are parents to a 4-year-old little man. From day one I just knew he is the one.We were and we are completely different people but as they say being different balances it all.
Recap your big day for us.
My big day was very special as it is for every other girl.There were mixed emotions. I was happy was that finally I was getting married to my best friend of 7 years but at the same time there was a very part of my heart which was sad about leaving my parents and siblings.

After the wedding, we went to beautiful Pattaya and Bangkok for our honeymoon. I think Thailand has a lot to offer. From beaches of Pattaya to beautiful temples of Bangkok and it’s pocket friendly too.It’s a fabulous place for Honeymoon.
What’s the best advice you can give a bride and groom planning their wedding?
I would advise every Bride and Groom to take things easy. It is the most special day of their lives and yes, wedding planning can be very overwhelming leading to a lot of anxiety but sometimes we miss on to a lot of things because of that anxiety.Everything falls into place eventually and so do every wedding planning. Another advice would be that there is always an option and alternative for expensive things we have in mind so never hurry up and always look for options.
If you could change one thing in your wedding planning what would it be?
If I could change one thing in my wedding planning it would be Photography.I Love the concept of pre-wedding and wedding photo shoots these days.
What has surprised you most during the first few months of marriage?
Marriage is beautiful.It’s amazing how one day changes your life forever but then you have a friend for life to share your ups and downs with. Someone who is always with you through your thick and thins. what surprised me the most was that I accepted it all very easily, much more than I thought that I would.
