Just after the man of your dreams gets down on his knees and pops the question, you're completely overwhelmed with love and unparalleled emotions. But just after those feelings set in, the first thought for every girl is 'Oh! I'm a bride-to-be, what the hell am I going to wear?!' Of course if you're anything like me (*ahem extra ahem*), you've already been thinking of your bridal ensemble even with no man to actually marry in the picture.
It’s not such a bad idea to wear your heart on your sleeve :) More on this on www.namrataloka.com, toggle over to #kiRantonamrata! Photos: @journeysbyram #timecapsule #weddingoutfit #sanfranciscoskyline
The lady behind the designing is Namrata's friend, Disha Patel who is the founder and desginer at Soirée Couture. She's the one who took the bride's vision and put it into this gorgeous reality and made Namrata and Kiran's big day even more special.
Loka shared bits about the entire process on her blog and says she was in equal parts nervous and excited for what the blouse would look like. She said, "I had an insane time drawing, writing, tracing, designing, and goofing with some of my favourite people. The highlight was having Kiran write the lines from when he asked me out in 2014, which, I quote him, made him feel like he should practice writing every day."
Waiting with bated breath to hit publish on my most favorite outfit post of all time. For now, let’s just call it an adult version of drawing/ colouring books ;) #kiRantonamrata #pigbig #journeysofeuphoria Photo: @shotstoriesbyvarunsuresh with @journeysbyram
The fabric used for the project was the same as what came along with the kanjeevaram saree and to spruce it up a bit, Disha added fringes to the sleeve.
Of all the times their eyes locked on to each other, I'm willing to bet this one will forever be their favorite. ❤😊 . . . . .

The big day was photographed by Journeys By Ram and boy, did they do a stellar job.
While most times we complain about having to sell a kidney and then some to afford that dream wedding outfit which we can't even wear again, Namrata made something she can really cherish for posterity. Talk about romance, right? ❤
