Upasana and Deb, both advertising professionals from Delhi got married at a chilled-out, intimate function in Goa. The venue was a quaint set of Villas called Aashiyana Lakhanpal, hidden away in the scanty lanes of Candolim. The setting was serene and the feel relaxed and cosy.

Welcome notes for each of the guests kept in their room
The functions at the two-day event included the Mehndi and Cocktails on day one and the brunch, wedding ceremony and a poolside party on day two. For the wedding ceremony, held as per Arya Samaj rituals, Upasana wore a gorgeous blue and white creation by Sabyasachi. Both days had colour themes for decor and clothes, which the guests, very sportingly adhered to. Day one was green and gold. Day two had pastels for the brunch and off-white and gold for the wedding. Finally, the hundred guests got to the pool, and most of them were in dresses and shorts. Wet dresses and shorts eventually!
