How We Met
Hardik and Soohi, who are now based in the US, studied in the same school in India from their kindergarten years. However, they did not know each other personally back then. Soohi moved to the US after her twelfth grade. After Hardik also moved there, the two started talking. And after almost three years of being friends, their feelings deepened and they decided to get married.

The Proposal
The proposal took place in South Carolina, at a covered bridge over a beautiful stream. Hardik wanted to show Soohi the beautiful spot surrounded by mountains. However, he had a surprise wedding proposal up his sleeve. When she was admiring the views, he got down on one knee and presented the ring and popped the question. It was later on that Soohi found out that everything was planned and that Hardik had even booked a photographer to capture the special moment.

Wedding Functions
The wedding functions were planned for an eventful seven days and started with a few rituals, music, dance and fireworks at the Belvedere Club in Ahmedabad.

Sangeet
The glitzy celebrations commenced with the sangeet ceremony and a pre-wedding reception at Blue Lagoon in Ahmedabad. There were performances by friends and family, and Bollywood playback singer Bhumi Trivedi also entertained the gathering with her hit tracks. The music kept everyone on their feet till the wee hours of the morning. Soohi looked ethereal in a deep maroon lehenga, and Hardik wore a classy black bandhgala ensemble.

Mehndi
The sangeet was followed by a 'grah shanti pooja' and mehndi function which were hosted at Kalhaar Exotica in Ahmedabad the next day. The theme for this function was ethnic Indian, and the decor was colorful and vibrant with fresh blooms. Soohi looked radiant in a pink top paired with a sea green skirt, while Hardik sported a royal blue jacket and printed kurta.

Reception
After the wedding, guests came back to Ahmedabad to enjoy the post-wedding reception at The Hyatt, Ahmedabad. Several interesting moments proved to be highlights of the wedding such as when Hardik's car got lost while on the way to Udaipur to hunt for a sword, and people falling into the swimming pool after the cocktail night. This couple went back with a lot of stories from their fun celebrations!
