RAKSHITHA & CHRISTIAN
Off Beet Productions
Although Christian and I overlapped in our years at the same grad school and had mutual friends, we didn't get to know each other until years later. Months after meeting, we finally went on our first date and knew there was something special about our relationship.
We spent our time cooking together, traveling, going to concerts, hiking, and becoming dog-parents to our two golden retrievers.
We became the best of friends and inseparable. Christian planned the perfect proposal in May of 2021, followed by a surprise engagement party right after, celebrating with family and friends. When planning our wedding, we knew we wanted to get married in the area. Having our wedding in Saratoga Springs was an easy decision, it was our home and where our relationship flourished.
Our wedding day was beyond perfect. We were able to elegantly represent two cultures, with two distinctly different ceremonies followed by a reception. Our vendors all worked so well together and really went above and beyond to make our day memorable.

Advice Rakshitha & Christian Would Like To Pass Along...
"Let the small things slide, things may go wrong. However, in the grande scheme of things, all that matters is that you're marrying your person."
