An Atlanta couple hosts an elegant and vibrant wedding celebration that combines their Indian heritage and Southern roots.

Nitya and Neal met in college through mutual friends, but didn't start dating until 10 years later. "We were first acquaintances and then friends for a very long time prior to dating," Nitya says. They became engaged about a year into their relationship.

Neal surprised Nitya by proposing the night before they departed for vacation to Jamaica. "I actually thought he might propose in Jamaica, so I was confused as to why he wanted to have a nice dinner the night before," the bride says. After a romantic dinner, Neal popped the question at his apartment, where friends and family later gathered to celebrate their engagement.
