After being introduced by mutual friends during medical residency at Temple Hospital in Philadelphia, Nina George and Abin Bandyopadhyay dated for a year and a half before he popped the question while on vacation in Anguilla. The subsequent wedding celebrated Nina’s Indian heritage with bright bursts of pink, orange, and gold throughout. The vivid coral on her bridesmaids was reflected in the eclectic bouquets of summer flowers, balanced by incorporating a lot of greens. “Take a deep breath,” Nina advises brides. “Get an awesome wedding planner who is going to be able to walk you through the steps and get you organized, and, most importantly, keep you calm through the process.” Her process included deciding on a black-tie optional event, an element that elevated the wedding, and choosing personal details, like playing Hindi songs and catering with Indian cuisine. “Remember to enjoy the day you spent planning for your family and friends.”
