The Story
The couple began dating soon after meeting at medical school orientation in Dallas. Following a two-year courtship, Ari proposed to Shuchi on a private beach near Lake Travis.

The Details
The couple decided on a garden ceremony at Vargo’s, to which the bride wore a traditional silk sari designed by Asopalav—a boutique in India. The groom rode in on a horse, wearing all white.

The Party
To symbolize the bird of India, the peacock, Shawn Rushing of En Vogue Events and Prashe Decor used bold pink, blue, purple, green and red at the Hotel ZaZa reception. DJ Pankaj got guests moving after a meal by Daawat Catering.
