We are so excited to be sharing this Luxe Bride's wedding day with our followers! Sohail and Tomika have known each other for over five and a half years . They met through a mutual friend downtown and have been inseparable ever since.

Here is a little bit about the proposal in Tomika's words: "The day of the proposal started out lounging by the pool and ocean with my family, friends and Sohail. We decided we needed a little adventure in our day so we asked around and made the decision to go parasailing." Uhmm all the heart eye emojis for that! "I was so excited, little did I know this was going to be the best day of my life. We all took a jet ski out to the boat that was holding everyone. The waves were extra high this day and it was very windy. It was finally our turn to be lifted up and at that point I was motion sick from the waves of the boat. Sohail requested to sit on the left and I didn't think anything of it. They slowly raised us up higher and higher until we could see all of the Island in the back and endless amounts of sea ahead." We have chills just thinking about it!

"Sohail took my hand and told me to look out at the endless sea and imagine all of the endless possibilities we could share together in this life and that he couldn't imagine spending his life with anyone else. He reached in his pocket and took out the ring my dad had given my mom 30 years ago and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. My response was "I think I'm going to be sick." and then yes of course. I love this crazy man." Okay, we're not are!

When we asked Tomika about the big day and her dress this is what she had to say: "My wedding was actually 4 days long. It was a combination of an Indian wedding and an American reception. We started out at our condo in the city and took pictures on the roof, then we took a party bus around the city and took pictures with friends and family, then we headed to Dandreas in crystal lake for the reception. My favorite part about our special night was being surrounded by friends and family, dancing the night away, and all the heartfelt speeches about my husband and I from the people we love. I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life. I owe a big thank you to the Simply Luxe Bridal family for such an amazing elegant dress that took everyone's breath away."
