For the ceremony, Bindu chose designer Sunit Varma.  "I wanted something that wasn’t a traditional red lengha or sari, instead I wanted something with a lot of color," Bindu said.  Her lengha was silk with metallic threading and encrusted with colored Swarovski crystals. She accessorized with colored bangles and Jimmy Choo metallic shoes.

Bindu wore my hair half up for the ceremony and added an orchid for the reception. She was going for "a romantic look with soft waves."

The bride changed for the reception. She wanted a transitional lengha and found a gorgeous one in Delhi by Mandira Wirk encrusted with white Swarovski crystals.  The couple danced their first dance to U2's All I Want is You-- they even did a choreographed dance!

Bindu & Vishal in Pittsburgh, PA

The couple met on Aug 8, 2008 on a blind date in New York City. They were set up by two of their best friends who knew one other. Exactly one year later, Vishal asked Bindu to marry him.

The Bride: Bindu Swamy, 32, Ecommerce and Digital Marketing, Blow
The Groom Vishal Lokre, 33, Investment Banking, Deutsche Bank
The Date: April 10

The couple tried to incorporate both Western and Eastern culture into their ceremony. The ceremony was largely Indian, but they incorporated Western traditions such as Bindu's father walking her down the aisle and the couple writing their own vows. The couple settled on having their wedding in Bindu's hometown of Pittsburgh.
