Decorated with white blooms and supported by transparent acrylic pillars, this couple’s minimalistic wedding mandap is awe-inspiring.
Surrounded by lush greenery and hosted under the clear sky at Tropical Retreat Luxury Spa & Resort in Igatpuri, Niyati and Dewang’s nuptials were nothing short of a desi fairytale. The union of this vivacious couple was planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – Mokshiva Entertainment who with their extensive experience in organizing weddings in and around Mumbai made each event of this wedding a breathtaking one!
Leading at the helm, Chetan Chauhan, Founder of Mokshiva Entertainment understood the duo’s vision from the very start and ensured that no stone was left unturned to make their dream come true. Sharing the brief he received from the couple and the creative process that went behind orchestrating the wedding Chetan shares, “Niyati and Dewang were intent on having a bright and colorful wedding that was fresh yet somehow, minimalistic without too many decor elements. Based on this vision of theirs, we made full use of wide spaces at the venue to make it look elegant and added a dash of color by using fresh, pastel-hued flowers. Throughout the process, the duo was incredibly supportive and took a keen interest in each aspect, right from the design and decor to the execution.
In the end, all the hard work paid off as the wedding went ahead seamlessly and I couldn’t be happier with the results!”
Choosing a colorful route for the Mehndi celebrations, the team decided to use vibrant elements all around the venue. Chetan shares, “We wanted to keep this function very vivid, and so we decided to go for breezy latkans, blooms, and garlands that dangled gracefully around the bride as she got henna patterned on her hands. Additionally, Niyati was comfily seated in a bamboo swing that added an earthy flavor to the decor.”
Staying true to tradition, the haldi function was swathed in hues of yellow. Giving us a detailed breakdown of the decor, Chetan shares, “For the Haldi, we used ample amounts of bright yellow and orange marigolds. And to make sure that all the pictures looked stunning, a floral ring crafted out of yellow blooms and foliage was placed right behind the couple’s seat. It was a playful affair where everyone smeared the newlyweds with haldi and in the end, showered them with marigold petals.”
“Since the Sangeet was slated to be a fun yet glamorous event, the couple wanted to add an element of meet and greet to it too. Also, in order to keep the ambience look casual in the outdoor space, we concentrated a lot on lighting by using naked bulbs that lit up the venue and encouraged everyone to socialize and shake a leg!”, shares Chetan.
“Niyati and Dewang, had always envisioned a subtle, minimalistic decor for their big day. Keeping their modern tastes in mind, we chose a soft color palette that did not overpower the eyes but at the same time stood out. Optimum use was made of the wide spaces, and everything was distanced out to make the overall look of the wedding simple yet elegant. Our bride Niyati was extremely particular about everything and for her entry, she chose to enter on a doli which was heralded by sparkling cold pyros. Furthermore, she also requested to have fireworks go off before and after each phera.”, recalls Chetan.
