Sukanya Subramanian & Neville F. Dastoor
June 15, 2013
Shortly after physician Sukanya Subramanian, 37, and U.S. Army Captain Neville Dastoor, 35, met on Match.com in 2012, Neville received an e-mail from his command asking him to choose between Washington, D.C., and Italy for his next assignment. “Italy was the best career move for Neville, so we took the plunge,” says Sukanya. With only five months to plan a wedding before they moved to Vicenza, Sukanya and Neville began the search for a venue that could accommodate traditional Hindu and Zoroastrian marriage ceremonies and also had an obvious New York feel. They booked Ramscale Studio in the meatpacking district for its huge rooftop and skyline views. A reception inside followed the two-hour ceremony with Indian street food, a Ladurée macaron cake, and a wedding waltz the couple had learned during Neville’s weekend visits to New York. “Two days later we were on a plane to Italy,” says Neville.
