High winds and several feet of snow didn’t stop Pooja Trehan and Kyle O’Meara from meeting up for their first date. The two had met on a university-hosted trip to Las Vegas while attending the University of Chicago, and Kyle had asked Pooja out to an Italian restaurant upon returning. After braving the biggest snowstorm in years, the two continued dating.
On a much sunnier day almost three years later, Kyle got down on one knee in the midst of a vineyard overlooking Napa Valley. As Pooja said yes, a butterfly flew by, providing good omen and inspiring the theme for their wedding ten months later. The couple wed on June 7, 2014 with a Catholic ceremony at Our Lady of Mercy Church and a Hindu ceremony at Congressional Country Club, bringing guests together in a blend of their Indian and Irish cultures with a Hindu ceremony altar, guests dressed in saris and kurtas, and the bride changing into a white wedding gown designed by her cousin.
