Deepali and Ajay met in person during Deepali’s cousin’s wedding, but the couple had originally matched on a dating app seven months earlier! Determined to keep Deepali in his life, Ajay virtually reconnected with her. After they knew it was meant to be, Ajay sent Deepali on a playful scavenger hunt around the city, ending with him asking Deepali to be his wife! Deepali purchased her bridal gown from India. Despite the traditional Indian wedding color being red, she wanted to make the day her own with a maroon-toned gown. “I did go to about 10 different stores before I found the one,” she notes. “It was a very hard color to find and when I did, I knew I had to have it!” Deepali and Ajay set their own D.I.Y. spin on their ceremony by creating table numbers out of cardboard and spray painting them gold. She explains, “His mom took our pictures in his backyard with the numbers and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome!” Deepali urges couples to have fun during their planning process. “This is the most important day of your lives, so make sure it’s a joint effort and you both are happy about the decisions,” she says.
