Reshma and Krish’s unique wedding invitation, designed by Hong Kong-based Moor Designs, was planned like a traveling diary and each event invite includes a country or city that is close to the couple’s hearts.
Reshma shares memories of her romance and the inspiration behind the artistic wedding invitations. “Mumbai has a funny way of bringing people together when they least expect it. We both met for the first time on the 14th of February, 2015, on a night out partying with our friends. After that night, I thought I would never see him again. We only spoke a little to each other that night but connected over social media. I left for Barcelona, and he left for the US to finish his medical rotation. Four months later he decided to travel to Barcelona and that’s how our love story began. He arrived single and left with a girlfriend!”
Reshma and Krish are having a destination wedding in Phuket in April this year. The happy bride-to-be shares that the wedding venue will be Angsana Laguna Phuket in Thailand. “After a lot of research, we came across this beautiful resort which is a modern tropical getaway on the scenic Bang Tao Bay. It has a lot to offer. Every event at our wedding will have its own unique venue representing a country or a city that has been close to our hearts. We are thrilled to be taking our loved ones all the way to Thailand and sharing our traveling diary wedding adventure with them.”
The inspiration behind each event invite was based on Krish and Reshma’s fond memories.
“I was born and raised in Barcelona, a cosmopolitan city that attracts a lot of tourists every year and is vibrant with culture. This city is where our love story began, so we will commence the wedding functions with a Spanish flamenco theme that will add a deeper layer of meaning to the occasion and give us the opportunity to relive those moments we had.”
New York City of Lights
“Our sundowner pool party will have a ‘New York City of Lights’ theme representing the skyline, lights and the vibe of a city that never sleeps. There is something about New York that is so addictive. Once you leave, you just feel like returning to it again and again. Krish was living in New York for six months while finishing his medical rotation and I decided to do a diamond course there at the same time. There is so much do when living in the fastest city in the world – you go out, you work hard, you meet tons of different people every day and balancing all that is what made our relationship grow strong.”
Love Locked in Paris
“A ‘Paris’ theme is incredibly versatile and romantic. Attaching a ‘Love Lock’ on a Paris bridge was on the top of our bucket list for a very long time. Unfortunately, Paris banned it recently. So we decided to have a bridge set up at our mehndi where our family and friends can have the opportunity to fasten padlocks to symbolize their love.”
Inspired by the opulence and grandeur of Rajasthani palaces, we want to recreate a ‘Royal Sangeet’ experience for everyone. Every girl grows up wishing that her wedding day will be dreamy and elegant, and so she pays attention to the smallest of details, be it in clothes, bridal jewelry and the wedding decor. Krish and I are fascinated by Rajasthani culture and we wanted to represent it’s beauty and grandeur on our big day.”
“I lived in London for four years, and Hyde Park’s Magical Winter Wonderland was my favorite place to visit every year. It’s the perfect world where there is only happiness and that’s the feeling we want to bring to our wedding. It goes perfectly with our all-white decor at our American reception. I hope to take Krish there one day.”
WeddingSutra wishes the couple a lifetime of happiness.
