Real Wedding: Sumita + Chris
Location: Westin St. Francis Hotel, San Francisco
From the bride:
There was an element of magic when we met in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. There was the first look when our eyes locked. Neither one of us quite remember that moment… however everyone around us knew something special was happening. Three years later we were in engaged.
Planning the wedding was quite a whirlwind. We knew very little about wedding planning but there there were a few things we knew for certain, we wanted to make our families happy and only the best would do.
Finding the best wedding planner was the first step. We were lucky enough to find Purvi Shah from Avant Planners. She was able to guide and reinforce for us what we may have heard from reviews and friends.
The next and most vital step was to lock in the wedding photographer who would capture this momentous day. Joseph Kohn from IQ Photo was luckily available for us on our wedding day. After fighting off several contenders, we had him secured to document our wedding.
And what are the pictures without a pretty face? Laenka by Myrium (the makeup artist from the movie Milk) had the best portfolio and the most professional makeup trial. There was literally no competition.
The days leading up to the wedding were stressful indeed. However being surrounded by our relatives made the struggle a family affair.
The day before the wedding after all of the planning had been completed, there was a moment of great relief and joy knowing that an epic moment in our lives was soon to arrive.
