Rika and Kartik’s love story began in West Palm Beach, Florida, where they both did their medical training and soon started dating. Having grown up in Brooklyn, Rika had always loved New York City, so it was only fitting for Kartik to propose in Times Square.

Colorful Waterfront Wedding at Waters Edge
Aerospace engineers Jasmine and Corey first met while working at United Space Alliance, a NASA contractor. “Jasmine had joined some friends of mine on one of their infamous ‘ergonomic break’ walks and they stopped by my office cube on the way outside,” recalls Corey. “We started talking to one another and never really stopped hanging out since that moment 11 years ago.”
Following a romantic proposal in Fredricksburg, the couple tied the knot in a colorful wedding at waterfront venue Waters Edge, flawlessly planned and styled by Claudia De Velasco of A Day To Remember. Jasmine and Corey pledged their love in an “informal outdoor ceremony” beneath a chiffon draped canopy adorned with white, red and orange flowers by premier Houston florists Dream Bouquet. Afterward, the newlyweds joined 168 of their closest friends and family members for a festive ballroom reception filled with drinks, dancing, yard games, music, and a photo booth from LG Event Entertainment & Production. For the reception decor, the couple kept things “casual and colorful” featuring lush vibrant flowers and chic lounge furniture, with a vivid wedding palette of pink, orange, and red with iceberg blue accents. Favorite moments for the bride and groom included, “The ceremony, the first dance, and partying with family and friends!”
We are so thrilled to feature this lovely couple and their beautiful waterfront wedding. Congratulations, Jasmine & Corey!

Bright Peacock-Inspired Sangeet & Garden-Themed South Asian Wedding
Houston couple Sadie and Aneel’s off-the-charts proposal story, to no surprise, culminated in a one-of-a-kind South Asian celebration. Their wedding story began when the high-school sweethearts planned a “spontaneous” trip to Napa Valley, where Aneel had reserved a private terrace overlooking breathtaking grounds. There he showed Sadie a video he (with the help of their family and friends) created and aptly titled, “How to Propose to Sadie,” which she says was “super creative, sweet, funny, and definitely tear-jerking.” After the video concluded, Sadie turned to find Aneel on one knee with a gorgeous pear-shaped diamond ring just for her. We aren’t surprised she said, “Yes!”
The couple celebrated their nuptials with six events over three days, where “we prepared to eat, dance, and celebrate the fusion of two families,” Sadie says, beginning with a mehndi ceremony, where Sadie and her gals adorned themselves in intricate henna tattoos. The next day, the couple celebrated with a lively sangeet among 750 friends and family members. The night was complete with a peacock-inspired, Moroccan theme featuring purple, royal blue, turquoise and chartreuse florals and decor by Haute Flowers & Events…and a whole lot of dancing.
The following day, Sadie and Aneel formally said, “I do,” in a romantic garden-themed ceremony with soft coral, peach, ivory and pink hues, in front of 250 of their nearest and dearest.
Sadie glided down the aisle in a gorgeous lace trumpet gown from Weddings by Debbie, while Aneel waited for the moment when they could offer each other their personally written vows. After dancing the night away, yet again, the couple jetted off to a mini-moon where it all began: Napa Valley.
We couldn’t be happier for the happy couple! We wish you a lifetime of happiness and many more opportunities to show off those amazing dance moves. Xoxo, The HWB Team.
