"With prayers to Lord Krishna, with blessings of our parents, and with immense joy and happiness, we invite you to the marriage of our beloved son Akash with his soulmate Shloka.
Marriage is a bond made in heaven, an eternal promise of love and companionship. As Akash and Shloka turn their childhood friendship into eternal love, they also turn our long and deep friendship with Mona and Russell into the loving bonds of family.
We are overjoyed to welcome Shloka in our family as out dearest daughter-in-law, and we wish her and Akash the most glorious life together.
As parents our wish for them is for their love to grow stronger, their friendship deeper and their smiles brighter, every single day. May their path ahead be abundantly and eternally blessed.
As Akash and Shloka set forth on this divine journey, we look forward to celebrating this most joyous occasion with you, and creating memories that will last us a lifetime.
We seek your blessings and good wishes for our children. With love, affection, and our warmest regards."
