Demi and Vinay met on eHarmony and married on 28 May 2016. They had 300 for the wedding ceremony and 120 for the actual reception. For the Hindu ceremony in the morning, the couple wore traditional Indian white and red wedding outfits. A beautiful lengha for Demi and a sherwani for Vinay. Then for the evening, they switched clothes so Demi could wear a traditional Japanese dress called a kimono while Vinay wore a suit.

The engagement story

“We went to Kyoto, Japan to meet Demi’s family and to ask for permission. The only Japanese phrase that I had memorized was, “May I marry your daughter?” πŸ™‚Β  After a successful conversation, we spent a few days in Tokyo.Β  I wanted to find an intimate place to propose, but that was difficult as there were crowds everywhere we went.Β  Eventually, I lucked upon a ferris wheel overlooking the city; that gave us 20 minutes alone to pop the question.”

The favourite part of the day forΒ Demi was enjoying dressing up in the different wedding outfits with greatly differing styles. Enjoying the best of both worlds. While Vinay enjoyed dancing until the end of the night.

“The hardest part was lining up the Japanese catering.Β  We wanted a Japanese owned restaurant, that could provide more than just sushi.Β  That narrowed down the field a lot.Β  Finding a way to serve all the sushi was a problem as well.Β  We ended up importing 75 disposable bento boxes from Japan.Β  Demi’s family brought them on the plane; it was quite a sight!”
