Romance can blossom anytime and any place, and this chance meeting really warms up from head to toe. A few Halloweens ago, dressed as Princess Jasmine, Sharon, met her Prince Charming, Manraj, after a missed blind date a few months before. But, it was at an Akhand Path that morning where Sharon first noticed Manraj in a handsome pair of socks! Yep, you heard us correctly, socks!
Fast forward a through countless dates and late night conversations to a summer vacation in San Sebastian, Spain. Needless to say, a surprise proposal was the highlight of that summer. They began planning their wedding months later during COVID, and decided early on it was safest to plan for an outdoor wedding in case indoor event regulations changed. They selected Glenmaura National Golf Club as the main venue to host all of the events. The property had a tent for weddings so it seamlessly met the couple’s COVID preferences.
Unable to go to India to shop led the bride to browse online and connect with onsite stylists in India. Through a series of WhatsApp video calls, they were able to walk through the showrooms with the teams from Shymal & Bhumika and Manish Malhotra and even take measurements through video!
Sharon and Manraj thoroughly enjoyed their wedding planning and didn’t let COVID get in their way of their dream day. They are filled with gratitude for their vendor team who worked with tireless dedication and creativity on their wedding. Congratulations to the lovely pair!
“For our Sangeet, we didn’t do a bangle or bindi bar that we had experienced before and wanted something that was special to us. Since it we wed during the poandemic, we had customized masks and hand sanitizers made for our guests that were placed around for all the events and given in the favor bag. Also, in the favor bags were a pair of socks tying back to the story of how we met. We gifted everyone a pair of socks along with our love story.”
