It was a bar named ‘Sweet & Vivacious’ where Anisha and Anoop met for the first time and it looks like they borrowed the theme for their own love story. In the company of their loved ones, the two began a new chapter of their lives.

How We Met
Anisha from New York City and Anoop from Philadelphia were introduced by a mutual friend the day before Anoop was set to go to Croatia for a vacation. On his return, Anoop didn’t go back to Philadelphia – instead he went to New York and kept returning to meet her. Before they knew it, they had fallen in love.

Anisha says he was the most intelligent, humble and well-spoken guy she had ever met; and although she did think that both of them are very different people, it was his warmth and kindness that won her heart.

Proposal
Anoop planned the sweetest proposal for Anisha. They’d been hanging out at Anoop’s family home and as they were about to leave, Anisha watched a stretch limousine pull up. They hopped in and went all the way to Philadelphia to their favorite brunch spot. While on their way, he asked her to marry him and she said yes!

This, however, was not it. The next day when they returned to New York City, he surprised her with an engagement party he had planned at which all their friends were waiting to celebrate with them.

Wedding Venue
The couple spent a long while touring across the America - Los Angeles, Miami, Puerto Rico, and the New York Tristate Area - but found that JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix was the hotel that offered everything they wanted. It had the outdoor spaces that were perfect to host a wedding of the size they wanted and the venue was as they had dreamed it to be. Also, for many of their guests, this new spot would make the visit a little more exciting!

Wedding Functions

Sangeet
The sangeet was a joyous evening filled with exhilarating performances by their friends and family. Anoop and Anisha danced to a few songs too. The sangeet is the ultimate dance party at every Indian wedding and once the choreographed performances were over, the dance floor was open to all. The wedding party had a blast dancing the night away and spending these precious moments with the couple they love so much.

Wedding
The following morning, the two had an Indian style ceremony customized just a little to make it more special for them. Although it is quite unusual in a traditional Hindu ceremony to exchange self-written vows, the two made it part of their ritual and felt they did the right thing in doing so. It was quite endearing to hear the other speak about their future together.

The venue was decorated with flowers in shades of pink and drapes that matched the florals. The bride looked resplendent in a beautiful Sabyasachi lehenga while the groom opted for a golden sherwani.

Reception
Their reception evoked the aura of a secret garden and their vision was brought to life with the help of chandeliers, candles and creative mood lighting. White drapes, rustic elements and twigs were used too and the venue lent itself beautifully to the setup, furthering the charm of the theme. Anisha wore a white and golden gown while Anoop opted for a black tuxedo.
