I had the pleasure of working with the Parents of the Groom, Santosh and Mahesh, to plan the Groom's portion of Sonu and Shelly's wedding reception on June 2, 2012.
This date was meaningful to me as my husband and I celebrated our own 5 year wedding anniversary that day, so I certainly felt a kinship to Sonu and Shelly as they enjoyed their special day.
As the Bride and Groom were both working out of state, Santosh and Mahesh worked diligently to plan the perfect event for their son. Since they are Cerritos Residents themselves, it was easy for them to stop by and chat regarding their event details instead of calling or emailing. I thoroughly enjoyed our meetings, because you can tell they were so genuinely excited and earnest to cover all the details to ensure their son and future daughter-in-law's happiness.
On the big day, our Crystal Ballroom glowed with twinkle lights on the stage decorated in red and purple uplights around the room. Our burgundy banquet chairs and burgundy napkins complimented the red and pink floral centerpieces. All the female guests wore stunning saris and traditional garb but I couldn't stop admiring Shelly in her pink beaded sari - she was quite the vision!
I received the following kind email from the Father of the Groom after the wedding:
We greatly appreciate your help in our son's wedding reception on June 2. Our friends and guest were very happy. Banquet Captain Barbara Reeder and other staff Patty, Juan V., and Carlos did wonderful work. We will recomend our friends to do receptions here. Please forward my message to your General Manager.
Thanks a lot, Mahesh Jain"
Congratulations Santosh and Mahesh on a job well done as well!
