In August 2017, mutual family friends introduced Pooja Patel and Mahul Amin, and their love for food, movies, and college football helped them bond instantly.
In November 2018, Mahul proposed Pooja. At a gazebo near a pond in Piedmont Park in Atlanta, with the Atlanta skyline providing a perfect romantic backdrop, Mahul got down on one knee and proposed Pooja, who said “yes".
Scroll through their story captured by Fine Art Production on their camera.
Given Pooja’s family lives in Florida, the couple chose The Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach for their wedding and reception. The wedding festivities began with a welcome dinner for their guests at The Plaza. Other pre-wedding events included a pithi ceremony and sangeet-mehendi both held at the hotel. While they handled most of the wedding planning details themselves, Pooja and Mahul hired same-day wedding coordinators to take care of the details on their big day.
The wedding’s color theme was turquoise, gold and ivory. Neil Patel from NJP Events & Design took the couple’s ideas and brought their vision to reality. He even incorporated Pooja’s favorite flowers – orchids and roses – in the mandap décor and reception centerpieces.
The biggest ‘wow-worthy’ moment of the wedding was their first look reveal. Mahul waited for Pooja by the beach, and she walked towards him as the sun rose in front of them. Check out stunning Photography of their First Look.
Pooja and Mahul’s wedding included a number of beautiful, well-thought out wedding DIY details. Pooja decorated the flower girl baskets herself, and she even put together all the welcome bags and itineraries for the guests.

For the reception, the newlyweds went with the same color and flower theme as their wedding. Pooja and Mahul entered the reception with NeYo and Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything” playing in the background. The couple’s first dance was to “All Of Me” by John Legend. Their combined Father-Daughter and Mother-Son dance was to “Jab Koi Baat” by Atif Aslam and Shirley Setia. For the cake-cutting ceremony, they chose Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.”
