Deepak Grover

Man of Honor and Groomsman

MFG: Words cannot describe the love and respect Monica has for her older brother, which is why she made him her Man of Honor. From playing WWF together, to Deepak styling Monica's hair, to guiding her though all other aspects of life, Monica has always felt a strong bond to her brother. They bicker and disagree all the time, and although Monica doesn't always like to admit it, her big brother will be 99.999999% right. However, when Monica is .0000001% right, she makes sure he'll know. So when Monica found Mr. Right (that .0000001% chance), she couldn't wait for her brother to meet him and quickly get to know him!!

Nidhi Tewari

BridesMaid

MFG: "Nidhi. Sister-in-law. Monica doesn't like the term sister-in-law for Nidhi because Monica feels as if she's known Nidhi to be her sister for an entire lifetime. Monica has always wanted a second sibling (being the youngest can be a little rough) and in Nidhi, she was able to have one. Nidhi is the best tiebreaker when Monica and Deepak are trying to figure out who's 99.99999% right. Nidhi is one of the most fun, silly, and sweetest people in Monica's life and Monica is so grateful. A wonderful mother, a great wife, and a thoughtful sister, Nidhi continues to inspire Monica daily. Monica knows that as they grow through the years they'll continue to make and cherish more memorable moments."

Varsha Rekhala

BridesMaid

MFG: "Varsha is so special to Monica. As Vishal's younger sister, Monica quickly thought of Varsha as her own little sister. Sweet and sensitive, Varsha always has everyone's best interest at heart. Monica and Varsha share the common mindset of being planners. They like to plan everything. If it doesn't go their way...well, to save yourself, it should ALWAYS go their way."

Vilasini Rekhala

BridesMaid

MFG: "As Vishal's youngest sister, Vilasini and Vishal are two peas in a pod. Perhaps, this is one of the reasons Monica appreciates Vilasini so much! She is fun and outgoing and always ready to have a good time! Monica loves that she has a little sister in Vilasini who brings out the spontaneous and silly side to her!"

Amit Grover

BridesMan

MFG: "Some of Monica's fondest memories include her cousin Amit in them. As they have grown up together, they have shared so much. From trying to wait up all night to wait for Santa to arrive to teaching thier nieces to do the same. Monica has always felt like she can share anything with Amit and she can't wait for him to share her big day with her. As a brides-man, Amit thinks he'll be wearing a dress down the aisle, maybe he will..."

Pooja Midha

BridesMaid

MFG: "Although Pooja is a few years older than Monica, they have grown up together. As cousins they have been able to share so much! When they were younger, they wanted to show their bond for one another. Too afraid to cut their fingers and become blood sisters, they decided the next best thing would be to put kethcup on each of their fingers and become KETCHUP SISTERS!! Same concept right? Through it all, they have been able to be there for each other and Monica hopes that as the years go by they'll continue to do so."

Tehmina Akhtar

Maid of Honor

MFG: "Monica first met Tehmina during their master's program. During this time, they quickly bonded and made their journey through medical school. It's very hard for Monica to communicate and open up but sharing with Tehmina came naturally. Life changes were inevitable during this time for both and sometimes it's not what Tehmina would say but how she showed her understanding and support silently is what resonated with Monica at times. Tehmina also has the ability to take Monica out of her comfort zone (usually watching TV on her couch) and bring out the fun, spontaneous side of her! Monica knows that the word "friend" is too simple of a term to describe Tehmina and her love for this special person will always extend beyond that as they share more of life's journeys together!"

Nazi Ahmed

BridesMaid

MFG: "Nazi had became one of Monica's best friends in med school. Since then they have made so many gret memories together. Nazi has the ability to loosen Monica up just with her fun and infectious personality. Anytime, they had just finished a string of exams, Monica always knew that Nazi had a plan to celebrate. Thorugh it all, they have been able to be there for each other through the fun, and tough times. This being such a special moment in Monica's life, she knows that Nazi will know the perfect way to celebrate!!"

Farhana Ahmed

BridesMaid

MFG: "Monica first met Farhana when Farhana started her internship and soon after they became close friends. Farhana packs a lot of wit in such a small package and this is something that Monica is able to appreciate on a daily basis. Even though they're the same age, Farhana has become like a little sister to Monica. Monica can't wait to share more exciting moments with Farhana."

Mietra Harandi

BridesMaid

MFG: "Monica has always had a special place in her heart for Mietra. Meeting in Anatomy Lab, Mietra would always make sure Monica knew her dissections. Although Monica's appreciation for Mietra started in class, it actually surpassed the classroom. Quickly, Monica and Mietra formed a close bond, and Monica never wanted to leave Mietra's side. When Mietra had to move away, Monica was devastated that one of her best friends left. However, over the past few years, Mietra and Monica have always been able to pick up a conversation where they left off despite the time that passes between them. Mietra is one of the kindest and sweetest people that Monica has in her life and she can only be so lucky to have such a great friendship!"

Anne Marie Gonzales

BridesMaid

MFG: "Anne Marie and Monica were first told of each other in high school by their older brothers. Since then, Monica has always felt they share so many similarities as well as both having the ability to know what the other is thinking without saying anything. They have gone from being high school friends to college roommates (thank god!!!) to now getting engaged within weeks of each other. As one of her oldest and bestest friends, Monica can't wait to share hopefully more similar milestones with Anne Marie."

Susan DiStasio-Kerner

BridesMaid

MFG: "Susan, aka honeybunny, aka SuzieMonica. These nicknames are some of the ones Monica shares with Susan after they started doing rotations together as medical students. Quickly, Susan became one of Monica's best friends. When a resident needed someone to clean an entire obstetrical ultrasound machine with alcohol pads, who did they call? SuzieMonica. They were always seen together from having to clean that machine with an alcohol pad, to trading stories of surgical cases, to interviewing psych patients together. At the end, through the easy times as well as the hard times, they remained SuzieMonica."

Edward Muradian

BridesMan

MFG: "Monica has known Ed since pretty much the beginning of high school. He has always had a special spot in their circle of friends considering he has always been the only guy surrounded by girls. He doesn't complain about his special spot though and he always offers useful advice of what to wear. Ladies, he's single and if you want his number Monica is willing to auction it off..." ;)

Roseanne Solano Rosano

BridesMaid

MFG: "Roseanne and Monica have known each other since the beginning of their high school days. They have been through so much together, and Monica has learned so much from her. Roseanne was the first one of their high school friends to settle down, get married, and have a beautiful daughter. She has done this so gracefully and Monica can't wait until she approaches these milestones to have Roseanne's guidance there as well."

Chiyon Yu

BridesMaid

MFG: "Ahhh, Chiyon. One of Monica's bestest friends since high school as well. Whenever Monica needs a spontaneous silly conversation or a fix, Chiyon will be there. She has accompanied Monica during her obsession to see David Blane's magic tricks as well checking out the Church of Scientology (at night), and scheduling a trip to the Bahamas an hour after Monica suggested it and flying out two days later. Chiyon is able to talk about some of the most random subjects and Monica is always intrigued by the next topic of conversation Chiyon brings up. Monica knows that in the future, whenever she needs a babysitter to amuse her kids, Chiyon will be the first one that she calls."

About Us

Proposal

Vishal: Check out how awsome I am... I am the most romantic person in the world... If I do say so myself.

MFG: Vishal, you surprised all of us, especially Monica!!

Monica: I really was surprised, especially because he had said that we probably would get engaged the following year! He tricked me! I had no idea what was going on that day!! Vishal knows that I always need to know what's going on!!

Vishal: Yeah, I loved that you were getting so confused and anxious about it. It was all a part of my master plan!

Monica: You had me convinced that your master plan wasn't supposed to happen for another year!! At one point, on the way to Long Beach, I had to ask Vilasini to stop the car because I was getting so nervous...I didn't know what to expect when I saw you. The best part was that when I finally did see you, you seemed a little nervous but at the same time so calm...

Vishal: Well, I always have to keep you on your toes...

Monica: You're so good at keeping me on my toes, you can re-propose to me every 5 years... ;)

About Us

Our Story

MFG: So...how did the both of you meet?! Everyone wants to know!!

Vishal: I walked up to Monica and was like yo baby we should do this... she blushed and giggled and then it was on like donkey kong.

Monica: Ummm...that's NOT AT ALL how it happened...

Vishal: What do you mean? I had you at hello.

Monica: Like the 150th hello...

MFG: What do you mean?

Monica: Well, here's how it happened...we met the first day of orientation of our intern year at Long Beach Medical Center, in June 2008. I actually walked in late...like really late. As soon as I walked into the doorway, I did a quick glance around the room to see where the most incospicuous seat was in the room. Luckily, I found a seat right by the door. Unluckily, all the attention was diverted towards me when the speaker, whose lecture I walked into, asked me why I came in so late. I felt as if all eyes were on me at this point, especially someone's whom I didn't recognize. Right before walking in, before embarrassing myself, I saw Vishal as an unfamiliar face because I had pretty much recognized everyone else. We made eye contact and then I quickly took my seat. Since then, our friendship came naturally. Our intern class was pretty close-knit, and a lot of our friends saw how VIshal and I would constantly make fun of each other and thought this was the beginning of something. For him, it was easy to make fun of my anal-retentiveness as well as my clumisness, and for me, well...have you seen how coordinated his outfits are? Also, he would wear an eye mask and put on his headphones during call...he really gave me so many reasons...

Vishal: The light in the call-room really bothered my eyes!!

Monica: I remember one day when we were on-call, which was pretty early on in the year, he had mentioned how his parents wanted him to find a nice girl and get married. He told me that maybe I would be invited to his wedding. The way he said it, I wasn't sure what he meant but then I thought, this poor guy from Amish country must not have many friends...I guess I'll make my appearance. I was curious to ask him more questions but then he put on his eye mask and headphones.

MFG: Vishal I have seen you roll your a few times, care to tell your side of the story.

Vishal: Welll well Monica has quite an imagination, I mean memory. The way I remember our first meeting was: I was at Long Beach Hospital orientation, early like a good doctor, and then orientation started and had been going on for awhile when who strolls in all late wearing hoop earings...it was J.Lo, no it was Monica looking like J.Lo.

Monica: I WAS NOT WEARING HOOP EARRINGS!! I don't wear them to work!!

Vishal: Anyways, I remember wondering who this pretty girl was. I remember thinking she looked very exotic, south amreican-esque. Later on that day we had to go to employee health for blood work, and I had sat next to Monica to find out more about this exotic beauty. She already knew everyone else in the intern class since everyone pretty much went to the same med school as her, so she was making some jokes and interacting with some of her friends and I thought to myself man this girl is pretty and funny... I'm in trouble. Thats when it all started for me I liked her since I first met her. It took a little longer, who am I kidding, a lot longer for me to finally end up going out with her. But my patience paid off and I ended up with the girl of my dreams.

MFG: WOW how touching, a true love at first site love story.

Monica: I'm the one that really lucked out =)

About Us

The Groom

MFG: So Vishal, tell us a little about yourself.

Vishal: I'm a easy going fun loving guy, but I can be complex too...I have layers, like an onion

MFG: What do you love most about Monica?

Vishal: She completes me...and she had me at hello...and some more of those romantic comedy lines haha...but She makes me happy, and everytime I see her I smile

MFG: When did you realize that you fell for Her?

Vishal: She had me at hello, seriously this time... I fell for her when I first saw her

MFG: How has she made you better?

Vishal: She has tought me patience...Vishal: we have to go we are running late, Monica: yeah yeah give me five more minutes... (30 mins later) Vishal: We are so late, Monica; ok ok I'm ready, I just have to do my hair and we can go.

MFG: Does she ever frustrate you?

Vishal: Yes, see above senario

MFG: What is your favorite thing for the both of you to do together?

Vishal: I like doing everything with her. Everything is better with her. Even something as simple as watching T.V. is better, we like to tease each other that we are the characters on the show we are watching. Monica is totally Kelly Kapoor from The Office.

Monica: I actually relate more to Kevin. He and I have the same passion for m&m's.

MFG: What is one thing you both do now, that you wish to continue years from now?

Vishal: Communicate, we have a great way of being able to discuss all things going on in our lives and have a nice way of working out decisions and disagreements. I hope we continue to do that as we live happily ever after.

MFG: Ooo Vishal you are so sweet and handsome, Monica is such a lucky girl.

Vishal: Careful MFG, I'm a taken man... but thank you.

About Us

The Bride

MFG: So Monica, tell us a little about yourself.

Monica: I don't like attention unless it's undivided from Vishal.

MFG: What do you love most about him?

Monica: Everything. There has never been a day where he hasn't made me laugh. Weither it's with him or at him (usually the case). I don't annoy him as much as I annoy myself. I have big dreams, sometimes so big that my head is in the clouds and he's able to ground me so I can work on reaching them.

MFG: When did you realize that you fell for him?

Monica: When I started to see how consistent he was in his character. Each day that passed I fell for him even harder than the previous day.

MFG: How has he made you better?

Monica: He has taught me the value of communication.

MFG: Does he ever frustrate you?

Monica: Yes. When he copies my jokes. He hears it, tweaks it, delivers it and everyone laughs, but I'm really the brains behind it. Sometimes Vishal also likes to share dessert rather than get his own piece...Usually I don't like to share my dessert (it really depends on the size) but because I do with him (even if it's a small piece), he should feel like that's one of my true testaments of love.

MFG: What is your favorite thing for the both of you to do together?

Monica: My favorite thing to do with him is to spend simple time together. I enjoy just staying in and watching our favorite shows together or listening to new music. The fancy dinners and surprise broadway shows he plans are amazing but I also enjoy watching him prepare meals in the kitchen while I scheme of new ways of getting him to cook =)

MFG: What is one thing you both do now, that you wish to continue years from now?

Monica: Please see above answer. No matter how many children/pets we have or how busy we get in our careers, I want us to make time for our simple time together :)

Welcome

Greeting

Once upon a time, there was a couple named Vishal and Monica. They were recently interviewed by Miss Fairy GodMother (MFG) of the Wedding Times Newspaper. MFG spent an entire Sunday afternoon asking Vishal and Monica about their upcoming nuptials. During the interview, Vishal was getting antsy because it was game 4 of the 76ers vs. Bulls playoffs series. Monica was happy because she purposely scheduled the interview for the same time... ;)

Welcome to their story...Enjoy.
