I guess this email was met to be as I was walking down Park Ave. yesterday and who do I see.... Duff from Ace of Cakes!!! Love him!

July 4th and 5th Wedding

We were lucky enough to work with this amazing couple, Praju and Vatsal, for their three day wedding in Long Island.
The couple lives in Manhattan and we worked with them for about 10 months on all of their events (Mehendi, Garba, Wedding and Reception).

Here are some photos of us and the lovely bride... again, how one planner gets so lucky with all beautiful brides, I have no idea but we are very thankful!

I got some more photos from this wedding.

The bride looked awesome and she was so relaxed for her mehendi event. We fly in the world famous Ekta Kansara from Detroit to do her mehendi. Loved it!

There are also some great Garba decor photos. The decor was amazing and all the colors were so pretty.

We really consider ourselves lucky as we get all the pretty brides.. Binita looked amazing for the Satak event in the pink outfit she had on!

San Antonio Wedding


These photos do not represent how beautiful the wedding was a couple of weeks ago.
With the 800+ guests in attendance, it was really busy and I did not get to take as many photos. I want to take a moment and thank all the wonderful vendors that we worked with all week long to make this event possible. Melissa, the flowers looked great! The Grand Hyatt is by far one of the best hotels I have worked with. The staff is second to none.

Enjoy these and more to come.

"Maid" of Honor

Hi Sonal,

I just came across your website and wish I had done so months ago! I just finished helping my sister with her wedding and the entire experience has made me want to elope!!!! There are so many details and, although I thought I was fully capable of handling them all myself, when it came time for the wedding, I was a mess. Although things turned out relatively well, I was very sad (although I didn't show it) that I missed so many precious moments (including the entire cocktail reception) because I was too busy running around making sure everything was in order (Dj had the right order, music, slideshow, speeches). Now I understand why people hire you! So that they can actually ENJOY the wedding themselves!!! I love my sister and was more than happy to do this for her, but if I had to do things over, I would have insisted she hired a wedding planner...and after reviewing your work...I would have insisted she hired you!

If I am ever lucky enough to walk down the're hired! I have read so much about you and the testimonials on your site show how much you care about your brides.

-Allison, a.k.a. "MAID" of Honor (now I know why they call it that!)
