It is said and believed that you never know when, where and how you are going to fall in love and find the person that you wanna spend the rest of your life with. When Nikit sent Alicia a friend request on Facebook and deleted it, did they know they would ultimately end up together as a happily married couple? No, but guess what! They did! The story of Nikit and Alicia is fun, relatable and just utterly beautiful, just like their exotic wedding in the Dominican Republic. Scroll down to check out all their lovely wedding pictures!

Introducing Nikit Patel & Alicia Patel

Alicia and Nikit met in college in Boston, Massachusetts after which Nikit sent Alicia a Facebook friend request but deleted it. Funnily enough, Alicia had already seen it. After some time, Nikit asked Alicia out on a date to bed bath and beyond to buy a new rug and eat Papdi No Lot together. They fell in love with each other and after several years of being in a happy relationship together, they decided to tie the knot in Cap Cana, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Below we have listed all the sweet pictures and details from their spectacular and fun-filled wedding. 

Mehendi & Welcome Night

Nikit and Alicia's Mehendi and the welcome night was an exciting beachside celebration. Alicia Patel looked like a princess wearing a pink embellished lehenga by Papa Don't Preach by Shubhika. For their fun-filled welcome night, Alicia wore a cute floral co-ord set by Papa Don't Preach while Nikit wore a breezy matching embroidered shirt with trousers.

Beach Wedding

Nikit and Alicia had a beautiful beach wedding with poppy floral decor. The bride wore a gorgeous coral Rimple & Harpreet lehenga and the groom wore a pretty golden and ivory Bandhgala. We loved the groom's green jewellery which gave him a regal look. The bride matched with the groom in her golden and green jewellery which was also contrasting beautifully with her coral and golden lehenga.
