From a breezy lavender-themed lunch to a floral mehndi, this couple’s Jaipur wedding was a stunning three-day celebration of love!
Regal and a perfect reflection of their rich Maharashtrian legacy, Nikita Niwal and Chinmay Pramod Sakhare’s wedding in the month of January was a combination of culture and heartfelt moments. WeddingSutra Favorite – Noon Moon Events used their talent and creativity to spearhead the planning process and executed a stunning three-day celebration of love for this beautiful couple.
Giving us a glimpse of the planning process and the brief she received from the couple, Simran Bhatia from Noon Moon Events shares, “We actually got cracking on the planning process during the pandemic and since there were numerous restrictions, our interaction with the couple and their parents were limited to video calls.
On the design aspect, we were keen on keeping everything balanced. Since the venue was a heritage hotel, we wanted its architecture to speak for itself and added elements to sync with it. Additionally, we also wanted to give the guests a taste of the Rajasthani culture since this was a destination wedding. Nikita and Chinmay were also enthusiastic about a traditional wedding. For the color palette, they leaned towards maroon, gold, yellow and orange, and we on our part ensured that these colors were incorporated in varying degrees. Once the festivities commenced, both of them handed over the reins to us, and as planners we put in all our efforts to make the event a memorable one. In Indian weddings, it’s not just about the couple but also their families. In this case, it was the same and we successfully impressed every member of both the families!”
Filled with colors and exuding warmth, the guests were given a resounding welcome to Nikita and Chinmay’s wedding. Simran shares, “When the guests were checking in, we kept everything bright and colorful since that would be the first time we would be entering the venue. The entire area actually looked like a photo booth! There was a lot of greenery on the pathway, and to add some color to this lushness we bought 80 to 90 marigold plants that were lined up along the pathway to add a pop of color. Since this was a three-day wedding, we wanted to use as many long-lasting elements as possible. Hence, we opted for marigold plants that wouldn’t wilt till the celebrations ended!”
Hosted under the bright sunlit sky, the welcome lunch was a breezy one swathed in shades of lavender and white. Simran shares, “This lunch was a last moment addition to the list of events. Keeping the casual environment in mind, we decided to add a modern spin to the lunch with lavender and white drapes that were paired with delicate white florals. Additionally, earthy wooden tables gave a rustic feel to the lunch!”
Open Air lunch
Taking a cue from the welcome lunch on the first day, the second lunch was also an open-air one. However, this time teal dominated the color palette. Accentuated by colorful flowers and printed tablecloths, this lunch had everyone unwinding on the lush lawn while they enjoyed the scenery around them.
Taking full advantage of the majestic interiors of the venue, the Mehndi was awash with colors. Adorned with stunning meenakari work and colored glass windows, the interiors gave the team a perfect canvas to make the bride’s vision come true. Peppered with comfy velvet chairs, wooden arches, and suspended florals, the Mehndi event looked surreal.
Showcasing the couple’s affinity for tradition, the Haldi decor was orange-hued with marigold garlands and yellow roses adding a generous dash of cheer to the proceedings. Breezy canopies with sheer orange drapes were constructed to ensure the bride and groom were sheltered from the sun as they got their pre-wedding glow on.
Traditionally hosted a day before the wedding, in the Seemant Pujan the bride’s family welcomes the groom and his family. After the groom is bestowed with gifts by the bride’s parents, both the families take this opportunity to learn more about each other over a hearty meal. Hosted indoors in a space surrounded by tall French windows, the couple’s Seemant Pujan gave them beautiful views of the surroundings and was tastefully decorated with colorful cushions and yellow flowers.
Opting for a rich color palette filled with gold and red hues, the wedding exuded a regal vibe that was in tandem with the architecture of the venue. True to their vision, the planning team included subtle elements like red drapes, gold chairs, and delicate crystal lamps that accentuated the luxurious Rajasthani architecture. Seated on an elephant, the groom made a grand entry while the bride wasn’t far behind as she made her way to the mandap seated in a palki. Following Maharashtrian rituals, the wedding was filled with romantic moments but the highlight was the sunset varmala which lent a magical air to the proceedings.
