About the couple Bride: Christina Bains Groom: Jesse Dhami How they met: "About five years ago I was organizing and promoting a South Asian speed dating event when he inquired about the event for his ‘cousin.’ Since most people at that time were reluctant to inquire for themselves, I encouraged him to check it out," explains Christina.
Christina completed her look with a birdcage veil and super-sexy Christian Louboutin heels.
After changing for the reception, Christina and Jesse made their grand entrance to a version of Rick Springfield’s catchy tune “Jessie’s Girl”.
We had no idea what a trek it would be," Christina recalls.
"After about two hours of walking, we finally had our meal.
"We started chatting on hi5 (what we used before Facebook), then emailed, and then chatted on MSN messenger.
For the occasion, a silk sari was transformed into an elegant, luxurious evening gown.
“This song has always been special for Jesse,” Christina admits.
“His friends always phone him when they hear it.” Naturally, Christina decided the tune was ideal for getting the party started, but Jesse didn’t have a clue.
To this day, he still says he got me because of his ‘phone game.'" Engagement story: “We went to NYC in December 2010 because I wanted to experience Christmas in New York.
I was hoping it would be every bit as magical in reality as it was in my mind.
