Our Wedding

Our Gents

Suresh

Best Man and Little Brother

Suresh is my little brother who growing up we had our differences. We went through a phase of hating each other but it was more like I was jealous and hated him. He's looked up to me since day one and I can honestly say we’ve become inseparable throughout the years. Growing up with a brother was amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I had a friend to play video games with, watch Sunday football, and talk about random bs (he mostly did the talking). I can’t imagine not having a brother in my life and I’m am so proud of the man he has become. Having the responsibility of looking after him has shaped my character in a better way. I am thrilled to have you by my side on my wedding day little bro.

Dan

Best Man and Best Friend

I honestly can’t remember when Dan and I first met but our friendship became strong through the years. He’s has been there for me through all the ups and downs in life. Dan is someone who is always down to take a trip or try new things. He acts like a tough macho guy with no emotions but I’ve seen his soft side. So when he tries to act hard, I can’t help but smirk. Dan is the culprit who introduced me to the gym. Unfortunately I followed his workout routine and only did arms. If it wasn’t for him I’d probably be 300 pounds already. Honored to have him stand next to me as I get married. Looking forward to the many more years of trips, memories, and friendship.

Renin

Groomsman and Cousin

Renin is my cousin by blood and first official friend growing up. Suresh, Renin and I came as a package. Our imagination made our childhood amazing when our parents refused to buy us game systems. We’ve gone on many family trips to seeing each other accomplish big things in life. Renin has always been there for support. Although younger than me, there are many things I look up to him about. So happy to be able to call you family and honored to have you stand next to me on my wedding day.

Ajish

Groomsman and Cousin

Ajish is the youngest boy in our family and with that came a lot of picking on and beating during our wrestling matches. Suresh, Renin and I took our turn using him as a doll. Can’t believe that little runt out grew us three. Through all the making fun of and beatings, Ajiish has proved to be a worthy adversary who doesn't let anyone stop him from living and loving life. I’ve enjoyed all of our 2k matches even though our record probably favors me. Ajish, I know I have joked that you wouldn't be a groomsman but you know I wouldn't have it any other way!

Selby

Groomsman and Bride's Cousin

Selby is Ginju's first cousin and we became close during college. Selby would come stay over Ginju's house during the weekends and we would go back to school together. From car rides back to U of H to working out together we became close. Selby is pure entertainment and definitely knows how to have a good time. Looking forward to all the family parties with you bro!

Sanu

Groomsman and Friend

Sanu is my childhood friend. We first met in 3rd grade Sunday School and been friends since then. Sanu and I have experienced many memories together. One of my favorite memories was racing our cars late at night outside of our high school. We were trying to figure out who had a faster car especially while I drove stick. Sounds like a pretty dumb idea right about now but I’d do it all over again. Sanu is always down to do anything and everything as long as it means just having a good time. Bro, I am looking forward to the many more memories and good times to come.

Vipin

Groomsman and Friend

Vipin and I also met in sunday school and became very close when he moved from northshore to come to our highschool. Vipin has always been there for me and always down to do anything from working on our cars to simply coming over and watching TV. On rainy days we’d take our cars out to drift around the parking lot. We’ve almost had our close calls but I wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to do something any car related work with Vipin. He makes any hangout fun and definitely an easy target to make fun of! Here's to the many more years ahead to make fun of you bro!

Jason

Groomsman and Friend

Jason and I met during our church OVBS and MA Tournaments. Our friendship only grew from then on. Jason is someone who I can count on for anything. Our 5th at 5 sessions with hanging out at the Avenue E pool sessions have been missed after Jason moved away. I secretly hope he one day moves back to Houston but my last visit tells me otherwise. We‘ve shared some awesome times together. Although Jason moved to Boston our friendship hasn’t changed. Looking forward to all the amazing memories to come bro!

Neil

Groomsman and Friend

Neil and I met in high school and is my brother from another mother. Neil is always down to do anything as long as you’re doing something you enjoy. Neil is probably the only person I know who has broken every bone in his body. Probably the biggest bs’er I know. He was the first one of us to get married and opened the flood gates to the rest of us. Thanks Neil!!! All jokes aside, Neil is a true friend and has always been there for me! I was honored to stand by him on his big day and even more honored for you to be standing next to me on my big day bro!

Georgie

Groomsman and Friend

Georgie and I first met through mutual friends in high school and our 5th street days. It doesn't take much to impress Georgie. He has to be the most care free person so striking up a friendship was the easiest thing to do. Until Georgie I never met someone who would nap and eat so much to not gain a single ounce of weight. Call of Duty was our game. Even though he was a below average player, I enjoyed jumping online just to talk nonsense with him while playing. He’s been an amazing friend and we’ve shared many memories. I miss our china star visits and finding new ways to cheat on our exams. Looking forward to playing many more late night video games and hanging out with you bro.

Nikhil

Groomsman and Friend

Nikhil’s that uncle figure in the group who thinks he knows it all. Nikhil and I became close through a Facebook group that was started to plan a trip. An amazing trip he didn’t even join. I’ve never met someone who is so real and pure and puts the interest of others before himself. It’s pretty easy tipping Nikhil over the edge. We take turns riling him up because it ends up in him throwing something in his hands or removing himself from a chat thred. I’ve shared some amazing trips with Nikhil and can’t wait to explore many more areas of the world. A time with Nikki is always time well spent, especially those nights when we meet for beef fry and henny at your house!

Philip

Groomsman and Friend

Philip and I met in high school and have gotten close throughout the years. For a short period of time we went to the same college and enjoyed many nights at moody towers and his apartment. Philip is always the first to initiate a night out and is the life of the party…or so he thinks. He’s quiet and reserve until we fill him up with booze and Bilip shows up. Philip is a great friend and always has something to blackmail you with. Watch out for Philip because he keeps folders of embarrassing material on you. I’ve shared some amazing memories with Philip although he skips out on our usual trips out of town. We have had some good times and the fun will only continue. You will soon have another pregame spot in the heights!

Our Wedding

Our Ladies

Anju

Matron of Honor and SisterFriend

If I can describe Anchechy in one word it would be backbone. Anchechy was the first person I met since I was born and has played such a vital role in my life since then. Words can never express how grateful I am to have such an inspiring, loving, protective, smart, absolutely beautiful lady to call my big sister and best friend. From childhood to adulthood Anchechy has been there for me and corrected my wrong doings to always ensure I was the best of me as I can be. We have had good times and bad but we have overcome it all and still remained so close (Sometimes too close its kind of scary) LOL JK! Anchechy, I cannot thank you enough for always being there for me! I love you so much!

Manju

Matron of Honor and SisterFriend

If anyone knows Manju she is talented at everything and the nicest person you will ever meet kind of girl. Manju and I are 2 years apart but she Is my mother and sister all in one role. All my life when I needed someone the most Manju has always been there for me. Growing up with Manju was definitely a blessing; I truly aspire to be so well rounded just like Manju is. Manju has been my support system and my cheerleader. Through all of life’s successes and failures you have never failed in being there for me and picking me up and reminding me that life keeps going. Thanks for always being my saving grace. I love you so much and can’t wait to see what all God has in store for us!

Nisha

Bridesmaid and Partna In Crime

Where there is a Nisha you know you are in for one heck of a night. I met Nisha when I was in 9th grade and I can honestly say I didn’t experience life until then. Nisha is my partna in crime, we did just about everything together and although we went our own separate ways in college distance was never a barrier for us. Nisha is that one friend that is so real but ever so loving. All the laughs, fights, tears, happiness, successes, failures, and life in general Nisha you have been there for me and never shut me out. Always know and never forget I will always be here for you through thick and thin. You may not want this but we are forever. <3 You're stuck with me!

Salini

Bridesmaid and Bester

Bester- This means Best Friend and Sister and that is exactly what Salini is to me. Our friendship started 13 years ago and although it started off both of us secretly hating each other I can honestly say I don’t know where I would be without her! There are many things I admire about Salini. Her faith in God, her do what you love mentality, and even though life throws some rocks in your face you always manage to smile and love. I can honestly say we have come a long way from hanging out at each other’s house and taking naps in amma’s van (I’m sure josh is still tormented from that) to being working and somewhat grown adults. We got to experience most of the biggest phases of our lives one after another from graduating high school and college, getting jobs, to getting married. I can’t wait to share the many more memories to come with you! Love you always!

Sherin

Bridesmaid and Twinkie

Sherin is my twinkie bestie, so many people have confused me for her and vice versa. Here is a little secret it is a true honor to be confused as her. Such a talented, beautiful, smart, and loving girl.. come one who wouldn’t want to be Sherin? LOL Sherin and I have been friends for a while now but I don’t think our relationship blossomed until a couple years ago, when we basically lived at each other’s houses, did everything together, and would go out to eat to make sure all of our random cravings were satisfied. Sherin, I honestly don’t know anyone more genuine than you… you have given me some honest advices and shown me in more ways than one that we should live life for us and not to please others. You are truly such an amazing friend and I cannot wait to have so many double dates to come! Always remember and never forget I love you!

Deepa

Bridesmaid and Bestie

My poopie ( I know such a weird nickname)… this girl right here is pure entertainment.. Never a dull moment with you. Deepa, I love everything about you most of all your random sniff umma’s!!! Spending time with Deepa is always cherished because being around her you can feel the love. Deepa, you have been such a true friend and always had my back even when I somtimes didn't deserve it! You are always so willing to go an extra mile for those you love. Thanks for being my Indian stylist and being honest when something just does not look good. ☺ Poops with you going to med school in India and me being here, I knew our relationship would go a long way and we would remain best of friends. I love you crazy!

Tiby

Bridesmaid and CousinSister

Tiby chechy is my cousin by blood but has always been a sister with open ears and shoulders through the good, bad, and ugly. Tiby chechy has such a strong faith in God and always reminds me every day that what God has planned for all of us no man can destroy. The one thing that I love about Tiby chechy is how she is so willing to try and venture out of her comfort zone. We have been on trips, dinner dates, and a bunch of other things together. I will never have enough thank yous for the countless amounts of prayers, love, support, and tears you have wiped for me. Tiby chechy, I am so excited for the future as both of us are getting married and the many more adventures to come maybe some of the adventures in the future we can include Stephen and Anish or maybe not!!!!!!!!! I love you so much!

Anju

Bridesmaid and CousinSister

Anju chechy and I go way back to my childhood when she came into Sanjai Chettie’s life and basically treated all of us like her own little cousin’s. Although we have known each other for a LONG time I didn’t really get to know her until after she married my big bro. Anju chechy is seriously so pure and loving and an amazing addition to our family. Anju Chechy, I learn so much from you and am so glad to have you a part of my life. Thanks for being my friend, advice giver, role model in profession and love, work out buddy, and someone who I can come to for anything. I love you so much and truly so blessed to have such an amazing person like you in my life.

Christina

Bridesmaid and CousinSister

My Christy kutty <3 I knew you were someone special from the moment I met you in the walmart isle! ;) LOL all jokes aside, you are truly so very special to me. I love you for always being so true and being okay with just putting life aside to spend time with me! ☺ I love our random happy hour dates and forcing me to spread my wings and fly outside of sugar land-my comfort zone. You have always been so supportive and stood right next in everything I do. I am so thankful for you and our relationship. I am looking forwards to the many more happy hour dates to come! Love you always and forever!

Ansu

Bridesmaid and Little Sis

Ansu is the little sister that I never had but always wanted and Anish’s little cousin. From the moment I met her we connected and she has been there for me without fail since then. Although Ansu is younger than me I truly look up to her charisma and morals. She definitely has a good head on her shoulders and always knows the right things to say to make my day! Ansu, I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for us. I am looking forward to all the family parties to come. Love you so much and will always be there for you.

Anita

Bridesmaid and Sis

Anita is the adopted daughter to our family and the person who patched up the emptiness I felt when my sisters left for college. From teaching me how to drive, to taking me to school and picking me up, just so I wouldn’t be the only upperclassman on the bus and we can’t forget getting me all dolled up for homecoming and prom and being the best after party thrower alive ;) you were also a pretty good bouncer too! Haha! Anita has always been there for me and literally my go to person for everything. She has always been one call away. We have the typical big sister/little sister relationship and I am so happy to have you in my life. Thanks for always be there for me and loving me regardless of how bad I mess up! I love you so much!

Trenace

Bridesmaid and Grad School Bestie

We are Trenace and Ginju aka Watch us whip and nay nay and ju ju on that beat! ☺ So my encounter with Trenace was truly God’s plan. Walking into one of my last field placements before wrapping up under grad I see Trenace sitting in my field instructors office. We said our awkward hello’s and fast forward a couple of months Trenace was my guardian angel throughout grad school. Trenace, without you grad school wouldn’t have been the same, I would have been a loner with no friends sitting in class alone. I will always cherish our car rides to school jamming to old school music and just singing our hearts out. I can honestly say I can be myself around you and you never once cross judgment. I love how humble you are and how you are always there with a positive outlook on life. Thanks for being my friend and sister and always having my back! I love you to the moon and back. Always remember if you ever need someone to protect you from the bad guys with grapes… I got your back! <3 Excited for all the good times to come!

About Us

Proposal

How about we get a little outside perspective on this whole ordeal…

Hi, we are Anju and Manju, Ginju’s older sisters, and we wanted to let you in on how this whole proposal went down…because as Anish will say, it was a “team effort”

Conveniently for us, Ginju is a planner….

<SEE PICTURE 1>

…and Anish, he may not act like it, ESPECIALLY with Ginju, but he’s crazy about her. After 8-9 years of dating someone, obviously she was important to him, and so some time in December, he said…

<SEE PICTURE 2>

Well, clearly we knew they were perfect for each other, when they picked the EXACT same ring…and so our proposal planning began…

Anish started talks going to fancy places in Italy to propose, but Chris gently brought him back down from Cloud 9 reminding him it was really Ginju’s proposal and his role was to purchase ring and propose…Somehow we ended up that Austin is where the proposal would happen. Close to home, but a little adventure as well ☺

We had previously planned a weekend in late February where Anish’s family was going to come over and Anchechy and Zaki would be coming home as well….so it seemed like a perfect weekend for Anish to propose. Zaki, as big as a fan of Texas as he is, had never been to Austin…we started a sibling chat and after some coaching,..

<SEE PICTURE 3>

From there, we planned everything down to the T… she told us once of a “dream” proposal, like literally, she dreamt it one night, and so we just took that and made it reality, but added small things to make it even more special and personalized, just for her. From asking permission to Achachen and Mommy, to the outfit she was going to wear, we started knocking things off the list…

<SEE PICTURE 4 & 5>

And before we knew, the weekend was here. We get to Austin on a Thursday night and it was like she was already proposed to and having the time of her life. Despite fair warning, our little Ginju came home that night, wanting to juggle cellphones and lemons. Clearly she had a great night ☺ but the rest of us were wondering how her morning would be.

Friday morning, Anchechy shows her this cute dress "she bought" that she thought would look great on Ginju. Ginju agrees to wear it, not having any idea it was actually the one Anish picked out for her…and though she took the struggle bus to brunch, we managed to have a good meal. Here is where I decide, I CANNOT leave Austin without going to campus and the Co-op. Our group splits- Anish, Zaki, and Chris go to prepare the proposal site, and I conveniently take my time taking sister pictures with the longhorn and browsing through the store. We eventually leave the store and Ginju starts to ask, “Do we have to go to Mount Bonnell today, I’m tired” and with a little irritation, I respond back, “I asked you what you wanted to do in Austin with Zaki, and you didn’t say anything, and Mount Bonnell is on my list, so we’re going., sorry liddle baby”

We get to Mount Bonnell, park the car, and as we are walking up to the steps, Ginju goes, “Oh that looks like Suresh’s car, and that’s like Sanu’s.”

PANIC, PANIC, PANIC- “Ginju, lots of people have those cars..”

“Yeah that’s true. Manju, do I really have to walk up all these stairs? No one wears sandals for stuff like this, and I’m really tired, can I stay in the car.”

Anchechy- “Come on Ginju koche” Manju- “you’re going to miss all our cute family pictures”

We start walking up the stairs, she starts seeing her pictures, “oh hey, that’s me” and little cards “huh?”, and Suresh, “bro what are you doing here”….BUT the tears aren’t there… In our heads, Chris, Anita, Anchechy, and I are like does she not know what’s happening? Is she not reading the cards? Oh no, she doesn’t like it!

Little did we know, that actually she was in a state of confusion, and was browsing at the writing…but then it hits…she get to the top of the stairs and mid way down the path, the song comes on…the one from her dream…at that moment, the princess finally figured out what was going on. Her prince was waiting for her, ready to start their future…and then the tears came <from both of them ☺>

A beautiful moment, at a beautiful place, to start a beautiful future as husband and wife <still such a crazy thought in our heads>

<SEE PICTURE 6>

Cheers to our little sister and brother! We are so happy that we have gotten to share your past, but can't wait share in your future!

About Us

Our Story

Anish's Version:

One day in highschool this girl introduces herself to me as, "Hey, my name is Ginju, and I'm Kna!" To be honest I didn’t know what that was but I was intrigued enough to keep talking to her. A couple of endless ;) conversations later, I saw how Ginju is the kind of girl who is was very comfortable in her own skin and how she won’t let anyone change that about her.

From being just an acquaintance at the start of high school, Ginju, over the years became one of my closest friends. It only helped that we developed mutual friends who helped build our friendship and relationship to where it is today. Our “REAL” friendship actually started during our junior year of highschool when we ended up having a class together. I never understood how someone could be so horrible in math, but it worked to my advantage that I was pretty good in the class ☺ I'm sure she'll mention in her part about the time I made fun of her during math class LOL. Let's just say it took a while for her to forgive me. With the help of friends and my persistent apologies she finally started talking to me again.

Fast-forward a year later, prom came around the corner and I didn't have a date. I successfully asked Ginju to prom only to enjoy an amazing night. I wasn't much of a shopper then or now but I enjoyed our moments together while going to pick out my tux and vest. Slowly but surely the seed was being planted. Who would have thought these little moments we shared would lead to a relationship in the making. We started talking post prom after sparking a connection with her on the dance floor. Yes, I busted some moves that obviously impressed Ginju enough to have a small crush on me. ☺ With all the great memories, new friendships, and a new girlfriend, high school was done and now it was time to go off to college.

To me, going into college with a relationship seemed pretty difficult at first. Ginju went to a different college but made the effort to come hang out with me at U of H.

We made it a habit to regularly go on dates once a week to try a new restaurant or watch movies that came out. This helped us bond and it turned into a tradition that even to this day, 10 years later, we still keep up with. Over the years of phone calls, date nights, accomplishments, and failures; Ginju became the person who I could lean on for anything. As the years passed, I saw not only a friendship in Ginju but also a future. I decided to make it official on February 26, 2016. I proposed to Ginju on Mount Bonnell in Austin, Texas and made her dreams reality, as she had made mine.

Ginju is a great girl with so many morals and values. I love how Ginju is very adventurous and enjoys exploring new things and places. This new journey of marriage we are about to embark upon will be an adventure of its own. I can't think of anyone else besides Ginju I would want to go on this adventure with. I can’t wait to finally marry my best friend and create new memories and a family with her. Looking back at our story, there is nothing I would change and I look forward to the many more chapters ahead.

Ginju's Version:

You know the saying God puts the right people in your life at the right time? Well I strongly believe this is true because Anish was put into my life at the right time. I remember back in middle school seeing this Malayalee boy walking in the halls of Sugar Land Middle School (never imagining that same boy would end up being my dream come true). From observing from afar; he seemed like a pretty cool guy, but during those years; our paths never crossed.

And then starts high school…I wasn’t scared or nervous because I had my cool upperclassman sister to tag along with, if I didn’t make any friends of my own. ☺ Fortunately I did make my own friends, in my PE class I met the coolest girl ever, Salini (now; one of my best friends), who thought she was so cool because her whole church went to our school and that was all she talked about. LOL, I didn't know the people she kept talking about, but I do remember her mentioning a boy named Anish who was like her brother and wore the same red t-shirt with jeans a lot! Again, didn’t think anything of it and I went along with my life. Most of freshman year and sophomore year, I stuck to my comfort zone, hanging out with Manju and her friends.

Then 11th grade hit and Manju was gone, so I had to really venture out on my own. Low and behold, I am sitting in my Algebra class and kind of nervous because I absolutely hated math. I sat in the back of the class and to my surprise a Malayalee boy came and sat right next to me. We, of course, introduced ourselves and he goes, “Hey what’s up? I’m Anish.” I remember thinking to myself, could this be the same Anish that Salini talked about… <maybe not because he isn’t wearing a red shirt>… but didn’t think too much of it. As the years went by I started to see that Anish was really cool and he slowly became one of my friends (plus, he was really good in Algebra and I thought that I might as well take advantage of the opportunity I got). ☺ Until the one day when he decided to crack a joke (or at least he thought it was a joke) and asked me one morning if I forgot to shave… shocked and kind of confused as to how he knew I hadn’t shaved my legs because I was wearing jeans... I responded saying, “no?” He then said, “Not your legs fool I’m talking about your mustache.” Absolutely pissed off, I responded back NO and gave him the silent treatment for a good six weeks until our mutual friends in class begged me to speak to him again.

The year went on and Anish and I ended up hanging out with the same people. We started to see each other not just in school, but on weekends too. He soon became one of my closest friends, someone I could rely on and trust with anything. As the end of senior year rolled around, Anish gained enough courage to ask me to Prom , and I didn’t have any objections. We had a great time, and to this day, it’s one of our favorite memories…even Manju and Anita would agree ;), right Anish?

Before we knew it, the last day of highschool rolled around. Life was about to become very different, but of course, we had to have our “last” hangout. We decided to watch the Pirates of the Caribbean and Anish offered to give me a ride. After the movie, he took a long way to my house and stopped at the neighborhood park. I was a little confused but just played along. He was talking and was saying so many sweet things and then asked me to be his girlfriend. I, again, had no objection.

Scared and nervous of how things would end up, we began our journey as boyfriend and girlfriend on May 25, 2007. We had a lot of fun, made some amazing memories, and endured our fair share of trials. Through the Grace of God and our strong foundation of friendship, we overcame our battles. As the years passed, I saw more and more that Anish was definitely one of my greatest blessings from God and knew he was the one for me.

Nine solid years later, on February 26, 2016 to what I thought was just a random sibling trip to Austin, ended up being a dream come true. Anish proposed to me on Mount Bonnell! Although that day was a little blurry all I remember was standing on top of the mountain with a perfect view and the perfect man standing right before my eyes. I walked over to him and it dawned on me that I was reliving a dream I had told Manju about 6 months before. I walked up to him and he was on one knee asking me to marry him. At that moment I couldn’t speak but I remember I nodded and here we are today, months of away from the big day. ☺

As Anish said on our proposal day, nearly 10 years in the making, cheers to a lifetime. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us and for forever to come.
