Couple: Roopa and Kant
Wedding Venue: Chicago Illuminating Company
Style: Traditional Indian Wedding inside a modern and industrial space.
How you both met: Met through a friend at a political campaign fundraiser. Reconnected 2 years later because he thought he saw me at a restaurant and emailed to find out if it was me. Turns out it wasn’t but we decided to meet up for lunch and the rest is history.
Your proposal: Happened when we went skiing with another couple in his home state of Colorado (Breckenridge). He proposed after a fun day of exploring the town.
Style/Inspiration for your wedding: Contemporary/modern with touches of Indian influence.
Details that mattered to you: Innovative food, elegant design, and an enjoyable experience for the guests.
What you love about your dress: I love that it was the first dress I tried on and though I tried on at least 5 others I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I love that it’s a great balance between classic and contemporary and I love the colors.
