A Regal Engagement in the 'Land of The Kings' – Rajasthan
Often it takes another person to teach one the significance of love. For Ruturaj love was just a word before Pooja entered in his life. Their deep connection called for a magnificent celebration in Jaipur and the revelries planned and executed by Wedding Sutra Favorite – BigBash Entertainment was every bit deserving of a nod from the royals.
Their engagement spanned over two days and was hosted at the JW Marriott Jaipur Resort & Spa which offers serene surroundings, luxurious rooms, and legendary service. Set amidst the Aravalli Hills, the property pays homage to majestic Rajasthani architecture and style of interiors. With intricate ‘jaali’ (frieze) and ‘tikri’ (mirror or glass mosaic) work, stunning wall paintings and elements that blend modern and classic aesthetics, the hotel enhanced the beauty of their function.
The festivities began with a ‘Classic Jharokha Soiree’ which was an event aimed at letting guests from both sides of the families meet each other and enjoy the palatial property. The function was made more entertaining with performances by Rajnigandha Shekhawat who is known for her energetic folk music.
Themed ‘A Regal Extravaganza’ the canvas of their engagement was painted in shades of white, lavender, peach and green. The decor comprised of exotic flowers like wisterias in white and purple shades, white hydrangeas, cymbidium orchids and roses with touches of lavender carnations and baby’s breath. A lot of lush foliage was a part of the setup too and stood as a pleasing contrast to the otherwise subdued color scheme.
A colossal floral arch welcomed guests into a beautiful passageway that was lined with bouquets and candles which led them to a banquet with a large stage built against a green backdrop. Around 250 gold pipes topped with glowing bulbs completed the stage, and sparkling crystal chandeliers cast an ethereal glow all around. Long tables for the sit-down dinner were decorated with candelabras and fresh blooms, while romantic drapes made for the gorgeous overhead decor.
The Maharashtrian Puja which was an integral part of the event was flawlessly taken care of by BigBash Entertainment and the night was alive with some wonderful music by the band Azadeh. Sharing her experience of planning this event Swati Sabharwal of BigBash Entertainment said, “We got on board only a week before the event date. Considering the time and scale ratio, I would say that this has, by far, been the most challenging and wonderful experience of planning such a special day for the D.Y. Patil family.”
