Jeremy met Mithila when he joined her team at work. They first noticed each other during a “welcome” lunch at the office. Mithila thought Jeremy’s bow tie was cute. Jeremy thought Mithila was cute. And so their adventure began. After that first meeting they started dating and soon things got serious.
When the conversation turned towards marriage, they decided, together, that they were ready to tie the knot! Although, Jeremy says Mithila asked him to marry her in her sleep, but she doesn’t remember. Jeremy officially asked Mithila to be his wife just moments before they boarded a plane to India to visit her family. And they both got engagement rings to mark the occasion!
Their fun-filled and boho brewery wedding reflected their ideals and the different cultures they grew up in. It was “mostly American”, but they also infused parts of Mithila’s Indian culture. And totally personalized their ceremony. Not only did they have close friend officiate, but Jeremy’s mom read from the Corinthians. And Mithila’s mom read blessings in Sanskrit. Then, Jeremy tied a traditional mangalsutra around Mithila’s neck.
After that, it was time to party! The reception started with outdoor cocktails and craft brews at Eventide Brewing in Atlanta. Meanwhile, guests nibbled American snacks infused with Indian flavors. At the same time, they kept the decor in line with the industrial-chic feel of the place. Succulents were a main theme in the floral design alongside lots of greenery and wildflowers. Mithila wore a beautiful gold sari and their DJ spun a mix of Indian and American dance music that kept everyone on the floor. Congratulations Mithila and Jeremy!
