The couple
Arvind fell in love with Nita in New York City and asked for her hand in marriage with an elaborate scavenger hunt. 

The details
Greatest Expectations Special Events & Weddings attended to the day’s elegant details. Entertaining Company customized an infused water bar and a menu including mango matchstick salad, sea bass, kadhai paneer and chocolate chip cookies.

The party
The couple danced to an “At Last/You Are My Soniya” remix (the latter song is from the movie Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham...). Sri Lankan wedding cake was overnighted from India. Each tiny piece was wrapped in gold foil and gifted to guests.
