Amazing Wedding at the Ritz Carlton

Amazing Wedding at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans

Priyanka and Alex have been planning this wedding for 2 years. Here is their story!

“Alex and I have been together for as long as we’ve known each other. Which will be exactly 7 years, April 29th. We started officially dating June 9th, 2011 and never really looked back. We met at Florida State, the night before he graduated undergrad. I was just finishing up my freshman year of college. Die hard FSU fans through and through, we were meant for each other! I am the aggressive passionate loud voice in the room, and Alex is my cool collected poised counter part. In the most cliche line ever, we are the definition of ying and yang.

Fast forward to August of 2015. Alex and I were going on our first international trip to London. I was really excited to take him to London (I was born there), to visit my family, meet them, and of course tour my favorite city in the world. We were there for two weeks, and at the end of the trip we went to tour Buckingham Palace. We were going with my mom, who is my rock. I couldn’t figure out why we were there so early, the tour didn’t start until around noon. I was cranky, tired, and confused (very typical haha). Alex took my hand and walked me to my favorite spot, which is exactly in between Buckingham Palace, the Victoria Memorial, and the Canada Gate (yes, that specific, there’s something about the view of the palace, in front of me, the gold arching architecture of the gates to my right, and the magnificent memorial of Queen Victoria to my left). There was a random man in red pants (turned out to be the photographer Alex managed to hire) and my mom was standing by him beaming. Safe to say I was very confused. I turned around, and Alex was on one knee, and of course the rest is history.”
