This colorful fusion wedding emanated traditional Rajasthani vibes
Hailing from different countries and cultural backgrounds, Zarana and Tom had always wanted their wedding to be an intimate, hassle-free affair where their families could revel freely. For them, hospitality and fun were of prime importance, and breathing life into their vision was WeddingSutra Favorite – Desert Pearl Entertainment, who with their superior planning skills aced at conceptualizing every event and made sure the duo took home memories to cherish for a lifetime.
When quizzed about the brief she received from the couple, and the creative process behind developing the theme for each event, Niyati Kazanchi, Co-Founder at Desert Pearl Entertainment shares, “Coming from different backgrounds and countries, Zarana and Tom wanted the wedding to be an intimate affair and an event where all their friends and family united to celebrate their union without going back and forth across venues. For every ceremony, fun and vibrant experiences were created wherein everyone felt completely at ease. Additionally, we also made sure to not only weave in aspects of their love story into the wedding but we also included the unique and colorful culture of Rajasthan to complement the grandeur of the venue.
In order to make their vision come true, we spent hours over numerous video calls to understand their needs and were micro-focused in ensuring that we got every detail right. Following their lead, every ceremony was conceptualized to exude vibrant and fun vibes with a tinge of Rajasthani majesty seeping through. Since the wedding ceremony was held near the day of Makar Sankranti in the month of January, we chose to adorn the first event, i.e., mehndi, with kites that had gota flowers on them in addition to gold elements that glinted brightly under the sunshine by the poolside. Sangeet, being the next event, was kept simple and elegant with the traditional desi/Rajasthani hues of gold and red along with a backdrop that accentuated the palace. And, for the last and yet the most boisterous of all the pre-wedding ceremonies, we chose a sunshine yellow color palette which set the mood right for a cheery morning filled with haldi.
Lastly, for the wedding owing to the bride’s wishes, we zeroed in on a peach and white hued wedding mandap that contrasted beautifully with the velvety night sky. And, since Zarana is an ardent lover of star-studded skies (their first proposal also featured starry lights), we made sure to mimic the same for their wedding reception.”
Explaining the bride and groom’s choice of outfits that echoed their unique personalities, Niyati goes on to share, “Zarana chose a white lehenga, since a white dress is customary for the bride in Tom’s culture, and it also reflected their shared love for travel and architecture. Tom, on the other hand, chose a white pocket square to go with his bride’s outfit.”
