Steffanie and Melvin met as kids going to the same church. She was friends with his sister and he hung out with her brothers. Although it took them a few years to start dating after they’d met, once they did, they never looked back! After dating for 15 years, he proposed using Russian nesting dolls that represented different parts of their lives together, hiding the ring in the smallest doll. This thoughtful couple envisioned a wedding day that incorporated both Indian and Western cultural elements, where their friends and family could relax and enjoy each other’s company. Following a colorful Indian ceremony in which she wore a traditional red lehnga, Steffanie changed into a second wedding gown for a Western ceremony.
