It was a ‘big fat Punjabi wedding’ for one of the beautiful damsels of Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor. The Neerja actress, who is flying high on the professional front, is doing fantastically well in her personal life as well. Sonam walked down the aisle with the handsome hunk and her businessman-boyfriend, Anand Ahuja on May 8, 2018, in the presence of their loved ones. These days, Sonam and Anand are making the best out of their Los Angeles vacation as they spend some quality time with each other.
Sonam has been regularly keeping us all posted with their lovely pictures straight from Los Angeles. Recently, she took to her official Instagram handle and shared a picture with hubby Anand as they were enjoying at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). She captioned the snap as, “My first stop in Los Angeles is the @LACMA! Art can change the world and is one of the most powerful ways we communicate. Can you tell I love art? Come follow along as Anand and I #ComeFeelTheLove”. (You May Also Like: Shweta Bachchan Nanda Reveals Her Selfish Reason For Not Letting Daughter Navya Nanda Join Bollywood)
Sonam Kapoor teased everyone by sharing a lovely picture of hers with her doting hubby, while they are enjoying their lunch date in LA. Along with the snap, she wrote, “It’s finally time to eat in @discoverLA! And we found one of the coolest vegetarian-friendly restaurants in town: @salazarfrogtown! #ComeFeeltheLove”. Here’s the delightful snap Sonam shared on her Instagram handle, followed by some stories she shared:
She shared another picture and captioned it as, "@anandahuja and I just stepped into a book lovers’ paradise When you come to @discoverLA, you can’t miss @thelastbookstorela in Downtown Los Angeles Thanks for the recommendation @VidyaVox and great hanging out with you today. #ComeFeeltheLove".
After her wedding, Vogue talked to Sonam's makeup artist and hairstylist, Namrata Soni. She revealed to the magazine, “There’s tears in my eyes. I think she’s the most beautiful bride of our country; as delicate as a flower. It’s an extremely emotional time for me.” About her reception look, she went on to say, “She’s so happy and in love, it’s heart-warming to see. She has been one of the most radiant brides; I barely had to do anything to get her ready, and she looked so stunning. It was a very contemporary and edgy look. We just wanted it to spell out Sonam.” (Also Read: Shweta Nanda Reveals What She Loves, Hates And Tolerates About Sister-In-Law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan)
In an interview with Vogue, Sonam reminisced their first date and remarked, “I was apparently wearing the worst sneakers he had ever seen. I keep telling him that he fell in love with me despite my bad sneaker game… That day, walking and talking in London, I knew he was the love of my life. He apparently knew the first time we spoke on the phone… It was just so easy.”
Anand too took to his official Instagram account and wrote a heart-warming poem for his lovely wifey. He penned, “From the beginning of my life, I have been looking for your face... today I have seen it. Today I have seen the charm, the beauty, the unfathomable grace of the face that I was looking for... I have found you… I am bewildered by the magnificence of your beauty and wish to see you with a hundred eyes. My heart (is filled) with passion and has searched forever for this wondrous beauty that I now behold I am ashamed to call this love human and afraid of God to call it divine. Your fragrant breath like the morning breeze has come to the stillness of the garden You have breathed... life into me I have become your sunshine and also your shadow... Every fiber of my being is in love with you. Your effulgence has lit a fire in my heart for me the earth and the sky… #Rumi. Feelings from the first day we met, 2 years (to the date) from when we got married @sonamkapoor! #everydayphenomenal”.

In an interaction with Filmfare, Anand also revealed the secret of how they are managing their long-distance marriage. He was quoted as saying, “When it comes to marriage, small things matter a lot. We eat meals together, even if we are in different time zones, on Skype. We also actively make sure that we don’t go over two weeks without seeing each other.”
As we all know Sonam has now added Anand's surname after she entered the wedlock and Anand too added an 'S' to his name. Telling the reason behind the same, she told Firstpost, "Anand and I had a very long conversation you know, and we obviously want to have kids eventually, and he had this one friend who had a very long name, his mother’s name, father’s name, blah blah blah. I said, see anyways it’s a patriarchal concept, I have my father’s last name, I don’t have my mother’s name, and I want to be part of your family as well, and he wanted to be a part of mine.” (Don't Miss: Ayushmann Khurrana's Selfie With Wife Tahira Kashyap's Post-Cancer Look Screams Couple Goals)
The Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga actress further continued, “So first he said, shall I do Anand Ahuja Kapoor or Anand Kapoor Ahuja? And you do Sonam Kapoor Ahuja? I was like, that’s still my father’s name, no? How will my kids have my name in some way? Then he said, should I keep Sonam in the middle? So, I said fine." Sonam also mentioned that in future when she and Anand will have kids, they will have ‘Sonam Ahuja’ as their last name. She said, "Yes. I don’t know if that makes any sense to you, but we really thought about it. If and when we have children, that’s how it will be."
Wishing Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and Anand S Ahuja an eternity of happiness and a blissful married life!
