Patricia and Anil were co-workers who met and quickly became good friends. One night, Anil had RSVP’d for a birthday dinner and planned to bring a plus one, but his date was not able make it. He asked Patricia to join him instead and the rest was history. It was the best decision he ever made. Anil knew he wanted to propose in a unique way, so he got his parents to help him out. One day, when Patricia was home sick in Dallas, and Anil was away working in Austin, his parents decided to bring dinner over to her and they asked her to consider marrying Anil. On the phone later that night, when Anil heard this news, he immediately asked her to marry him. It wasn’t quite the traditional romantic proposal, but Patricia happily said “yes.” Patricia and Anil were married at the Highland Park Presbyterian Church, followed by a reception at the Crowne Plaza in Addison, Texas.
Patricia wore a classic strapless gown with white gloves by David’s Bridal and her traditional Indian outfit was from Poshak Fashion. The 4-tier wedding cake was by Soonja’s Bakery.
Instead of a honeymoon, the couple had a family vacation with their parents to New York and Washington D.C.

Don’t hold all the planning tasks by yourself [Don’t try and plan everything by yourself]. If you don’t have enough money to hire a professional wedding planner, then open up and share your to-do list with your family and friends. They are always willing to help the bride. My brother-in-law was one of the greatest helpers for my wedding. He helped me organize the song lists, plan the order of the reception, order the LED foam sticks, and pick up jewelry. I can’t thank him enough. But not only him, I also shared so many planning and preparing tasks with my family and friends. Without their help, we wouldn’t have had this amazing and dreamy wedding.
