Canadian actress and model, Lisa Ray, continues to pile up the excitement as her wedding approaches with American-based management executive and fiance, Jason Dehni, in California. Plans have been made for their wedding to take place in a very traditional and typical Indian style on October 20, at Napa Valley, while their reception will be held in India.

The reception has been planned by the couple on the Indian turf to ensure that  their Indian friends can be a part of their celebration. However, the venue is yet undecided, as the Water star has since been engrossed with her shopping sprees. Though, we can tell you her gown is currently being designed by renowned Goan-based fashion designer, Wendell Rodricks, who has promised his dear friend Ray with an 'array' of Indian embellishments during her fitting session a few days ago. During her sangeet and mehendi ceremonies, the actress will don Indian dresses, to save the spotlight for her gown we're assuming.

When Ray spoke of her fiance, she explained her efforts of acquainting Dehni with her cultural roots, and gradually let him take pleasure in enjoying Indian cinema, culture and cuisine. She further added her recommendations to future hubby to watch Vidya Balan's much acclaimed The Dirty Picture, which he has noted on his list to watch shortly after Abhay Deol's Dev D.

Ray was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in summer 2009 and chronicling her rare cancer experience in a blog titled The Yellow Diaries, she believed she could beat the incurable disease. In the same year, she opted for a stem cell transplant and announced her treatment as successful in 2010. Since then, she has proudly stated that she is going to enjoy the 'second chapter' of her life, and further adds that her wedding will be the high of her life and she has never been happier!

The philanthropist cum actress has also signed a few movies with many young directors and is set to produce two of them herself, as she believes Indian cinema is travelling through an interesting phase. She was recently seen hosting Food Network Canada's top-rated series' second season of Top Chef Canada, which premiered earlier in March this year. At present, Ray has been spotted in the capital for the launch of the Swiss watch brand's avant-garde collection.

Ray's life has certainly been a roller-coaster ride but it's great is she's enjoying every moment of it. Let the difficulties overcome in her life be an example to us that 'life is worth living through every phase'. Kudos to Ray!
