Love always finds its way, and in the age of apps and technology, it only creates one more path to lead soulmates to each other. Swati and Prashant met each other on a dating app, and their relationship deepened over time. The duo tied the knot recently in Rajasthan, and bride Swati shares some highlights of the wedding planning process and celebrations here.

Swati and Prashant

How We Met
"Prashant and I are both based in California, US. We met through a dating app called DilMil. The more we spoke to each other, the more we realized how compatible we were and soon enough we knew that getting married was the next best step in our relationship."

Proposal
"Prashant’s proposal may not have been a grand gesture, but its simplicity and sincerity made it that much more special. He flew down one weekend as a surprise and spontaneously asked me to marry him ."

Wedding Venue
"Prashant and I wanted a destination wedding at a venue that arouses a sense of awe and exudes mystical charm, preferably a place that is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The whole idea was to give our loved ones a chance to vacation together. The 15th-century Neemrana Fort Palace had our attention from the moment we visited it. The property with its 14 levels is a marvel in itself and made for the perfect destination for our celebrations."

Wedding Planning
"Prashant and I pulled this wedding off with the help of our family, friends and amazing vendors! Ajay Ji from Govind Flower Decorators managed all the decoration for our events keeping in mind every detail that we asked him to include. Most of all, he did a fabulous job with our mandap and made it as per our exact specifications – be it our floral work, colors or design preferences. Our photographer was Rolling Arcs. Prashant saw their work at a friend’s wedding and liked what they did. I found them through a quick search on Google. I saw a wedding video that they had shot for another couple and was really impressed. Mekala Murali of Pathrika designed our wedding invitations. We wanted them to be quirky yet sophisticated, and she gave us beautiful designs. Divya Jaitley was my makeup artist."

Sangeet
"Our sangeet was held at the hotel’s amphitheater with a stage set under a canvas of starry skies. We made use of lots of fairy lights and drapes in shades of pink. Once the choreographed performances were over, the floor was open for everyone to shake a leg and have a blast. We also had a fireworks show which our family and friends enjoyed. Prashant opted for a sherwani from Manyavar, and I wore an outfit from Meena Bazaar."

Wedding
"The decor for our wedding revolved around florals, and the ceremony couldn’t have been better-timed considering we got married in spring.  Our mandap featured a mix of bright blooms and lush foliage with fuchsia fabric serving as the roof. The outdoor ceremony took place in the morning which ensured that the rest of the day was relaxing for our guests. I wore a traditional red ensemble, and Prashant wore a sherwani from Manyavar."
