How they met
Finding bliss in tradition, the couple was introduced to each other through a family connection. It took just a handful of meetings to know that they were meant for each other, and they wasted no time starting their next chapter! Despite their mutual decision, Rushil wanted to sweep Shikha off her feet, and popped the question to her on a dreamy helicopter ride before heading to celebrate with both their families.
The couple envisioned a royal Maharaja style wedding and found their perfect venue at Radisson Blu Udaipur Palace Resort and Spa. To pull off their dream wedding, they enlisted the services of F5 Weddings. Talking about their experience, they share, “F5 has been the backbone of our wedding. They helped realize our dream so remarkably. It was simply magical to see our wedding pan out just as we wanted, down to the last detail. The team was very co-operative and accommodating. Ajay, Purvi and their expert team did a brilliant job.”
Hosted in the cool, chilly weather of Udaipur in January, the welcome dinner was a cozy affair with earthy, boho-chic decor in warm hues of ivory, beige and green. An abundance of fairy light strings, canopies and wooden decor added to the Bohemian feel of the occasion. A customized photo wall of the couple greeted guests at the entrance where they could take pictures. Beautiful tablescapes, dream catcher hangings and an adorable couple seating enhanced the rustic feel. Friends and family from both sides raised a toast to the couple which was followed by the cake cutting. Unplugged singer Digvijay Singh set a magical tone with his lilting tunes.
The relaxed mehndi soiree saw a soft decor of pink, peach and white tones. Flowing drapes and dainty floral arrangements of white and green set a romantic tone along with rustic props and elements against the stunning backdrop of the outdoor venue. A dramatic hashtag installation at the entrance became a hot spot for the guests to capture some memories. Lawn games, dancing and music followed as everyone let loose and enjoyed.
Glittering gold hangings embodied the glitz and glam theme of the memorable Sangeet and Cocktail night. Replete with a red carpet, luminescent crystal hangings and magical lights set a mood of inimitable wonder. The beautifully decked Photo Booth and Bar left the guests awestruck, while the stage was lit up with hanging miniature bulbs and colorful lights. Brimming with amazing dance performances and the unmatched talent of Stebin Ben, the night was undoubtedly a groovy one.
The traditional occasion was planned with all the pomp and splendor of Rajasthan, full of vibrant colors and rousing revelries. Everything from the decor to the entertainment and dress code was inspired by the colors of Rajasthan. Multi-colored drapes set a lively atmosphere, while the groom upped the ante by arriving while grooving to a Rajasthani song on a Haath Gaadi with his friends. Famous Rajasthani singer Mame Khan added a touch of splendor to the event even as Anchors Rohit & Rashee kept everyone’s spirits elevated.
Inspired by the decadence of royalty of Sabyasachi’s aesthetics, hues of red and gold ruled the theme for the wedding. The decor was resplendent with shimmering elements of silver and gold. The festivities started with a bang, with a high octane baraat. The bride looked mesmerizing as she walked down the aisle lined with rose petals and candles. The varmala was inspired by the Ganga Pandit concept for a unique and grand experience. Shloka singers set a serene ambience for the pheras as the couple tied the knot. The celebration was brought to a resounding finish with a gala dinner, speeches abounded against soul-stirring music by an unplugged singer. A stellar performance by the couple truly marked the end of a radiant evening.
