Welcome to the real wedding of Samiksha and Sundeep, their love story began in DC and they tied the knot with a ceremony overlooking the beach in Mumbai.

 

Their Story    

 

“Sundeep and I met through a common friend almost 7 years ago in Mumbai. At the time, we had sent applications to study in the states and were waiting for responses. Fortunately, we both got acceptance letters from two different schools from Washington DC so we knew our relationship had a chance! We started dating when we started our studies in Washington DC. We both missed our families back in India but we always had each other and became family away from home for each other. After 4 years of dating, Sundeep got an amazing opportunity to work in London. Given that we have seen each other grow professionally over the years, we were confident that this opportunity was worth it even if we had to have a long distance. We had a long distance for a year and a half. During that time, Sundeep surprised me with a proposal by flying down to DC! Along with my friends and my sister, he planned the most romantic proposal I could have imagined! I obviously said YES!”

 

 

The Venue

 

“My parents really wanted us to have a wedding overlooking the beach and Novotel Hotel, Juhu was just what we needed! They had the best decor people working for them and were very accommodating with our needs and requests.”

 

 

The Event

 

“We wanted our wedding to be elegant and meaningful since both of us and our families were so emotionally involved in this. I wanted to incorporate the subtle nuances of our life in DC since that’s where our love story began. DC is known for their cherry blossoms so I told my decorator to decorate the roof of the mandap with cherry blossom flowers! I wanted to make sure I honour every tradition our families have believed in for so many years.”
