They crossed paths six years ago randomly in New York City and were best friends before they ever went on a first date. All of his friends knew he would eventually ask her out. All of her friends knew he was the man of her dreams; yet they waited; they stayed the course as best friends asking each other for relationship advice, telling each other their most intimate secrets and confiding in each other about everything.
Along the way their friends became intertwined, they became inseparable and their families became one in the same. As their friendship blossomed into love, their friendship grew stronger than ever and their adventures across the world seemed to just be starting.
Sonam and Eric’s four day, two state, six hundred guest wedding was an epic week that I doubt their friends and family will ever forget. Sonam and Eric started their wedding week in their home state of New Jersey where they both had two separate Grah Shanti Pujas and a combined Garba at Royal Alberts Palace. Sonam shocked the crowd as she took to the dance floor dancing for Eric and the rest of their guests. Their Garba had tons of amazing choreographed dances from both families and friends along with a Garba, Raas and of course Soneado.
From New Jersey and across the globe family and friends traveled to National Harbor, MD just outside of Washington DC for Sonam and Eric’s Gaylord National Indian Wedding and Reception. Over two days family and friends celebrated the love that Sonam and Eric share with a stunning wedding that encapsulated their affection with fantastic smiles, heartfelt words and a surprise ice cream food truck that had Sonam and her guests beaming from ear to ear.
The next day Sonam and Eric had their reception which included a surprise choreographed dance by Sonam and her bridesmaids, a first dance with dry ice and a party that nobody wanted to leave (even at 1am)!
