Love and Marriage in the Digital Age: a Dream Wedding Home Full of Color and Love

Like many couples these days, Shakira & Nevada met in the digital wonderland. According to Shakira, she fell in love with Nevada at first click! She was absolutely smitten over his responses to all the match questions, his writing style and the fact that they had similar interests. After 5 years of courtship, on their way back from a mini vacation in Palm Springs, they made a pit stop in Julian where Nevada proposed in the crisp mountain air.

When Shakira & Nevada described how they envisioned their wedding, they described it as laid back, sweet and romantic. They held their wedding in Nevada’s sister’s backyard in an intimate and beautiful ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and family. Shakira was given away by her father and her brother, Luis and Nevada’s brother officiated their ceremony. Shakira’s sister-in-law, Veronica, with Gilded Roses Weddings & Events orchestrated every detail perfectly proving that even small weddings can be stunning and elegant

Celebrating your reception dinner with specialty catering... Monsoon style!

Mango Tiki, Coconut Shrimp, Ginger Masala, Madras Chicken, Goa Fish, Kebab Curry, Tandoori and Biryanis.... we get hungry just thinking about all the yummy possibilities for catering a special event [wedding, rehearsal dinner, engagement party, or even just a big family get together] with delicious food from Bombay Restaurant and Monsoon Catering! Known for their modern take on Indian dining and their fresh and locally sourced ingredients, Senior Catering Manager Rakesh Popat is forging new territory with 'cultural catering' for all and winning a lot of fans from East and West. 

In our opinion, there are a few key things that help one's special occasion stand out from the rest, food definitely being at the top of that list. Which is why after meeting with Rakesh during our food tasting we knew we had to have him cater our engagement party. We received 5 star service from beginning to end. To this day, our family and friends talk about how tasty the food was. Our parents specifically said, outside of the home, it was the best Indian food they have ever had. And that means a lot coming from Indian parents! ~ Kajal & Chris
