With 6 uniquely themed events celebrated over a week, this wedding planner groom’s fusion wedding was a treat for the eyes
A celebration of love that lasted for a week, it’s safe to say that Kirti and Kaival’s nuptials were of colossal proportions with each event trumping the other when it came to grandeur. A perfect mix of modern and traditional, their wedding ticked all the boxes and was planned flawlessly by WeddingSutra Favorite – Absolute Events which also happens to be a wedding planning company founded by the groom himself! Here’s taking a look at their magnificent festivities.
How They Met
Kirti and Kaival first met at a college event where Kirti was a volunteer and Kaival, the organizer. And even though their first conversation started off as a fight at the event, the duo developed a bond and went on to become close friends. After four years of friendship peppered with several dates in between, they decided to embark on a new chapter in their lives by deciding to tie the knot. And even though the groom’s traditional Gujarati family was hesitant about accepting Kirti, a Sindhi girl into their family, time and love worked their magic to initiate a full-fledged acceptance that soon evolved into an everlasting bond.
Being an ardent wedding planner from a young age, Kaival always envisioned his wedding as a grand affair with almost 2000 guests in attendance. Keeping his lifelong dream in mind, he and his bride left no stone unturned to make sure they celebrated their love in absolute style. With six functions spanning over an entire week, their wedding was a feast for the senses with its visual magnificence and impeccable hospitality that took every guest by surprise. Kaival along with his team at Absolute Events ensured that not a detail was missed, and was extremely hands-on in his approach.
Apart from his own team, he also roped in experienced vendors like decorators Poojan and Shreeji Decor, along with caterers Foodlink, Mann & Salwa, HOC, Vidhi Caterers, and Waterside, and makeup artists Saniya Shadadpuri, Hamida Idrisi and Sajni Laxmikant along with photographers The Soul Stories and Mariana Shafro.
Also, ensuring that each event was filled with peppy beats and not a minute of boredom, there were artists Bryden & Parth, Desi Hustlers, Balraj Shastri, Delraaz Bunshah, DJ Dhruv and Percussionist Moltek injecting all their energy into the events.
A close-knit traditional ceremony following an orange and yellow color palette, the Grah Shanti was a minimalistic affair where Kaival and his family came together to offer their prayers to the almighty. Tassel hangings, marigold garlands, and yellow drapes brightened up the venue as the groom’s entrance was heralded by the beats of the dhol.
A fun-filled and distinctly feminine affair, the mehndi was swathed in hues of pastel pink, peach, and white. Exuding an aura of dreaminess, the decor consisted of vivid florals, pink paper butterflies and colorful origami birds amidst which the bride glowed in her bright yellow lehenga.
Sundowner By The Pool
One of the most special functions for the duo and their families, the sundowner pool party was a boisterous bash where both the families mingled freely with each other. Organized at the groom’s weekend house where he and his family have spent countless holidays together, the bash was not only a trip down memory lane, but it was also filled with plenty of music as everyone shook a leg on the dance floor. Equipped with a colossal stage, crystal chandeliers, hookahs, and fantastic performances, this party took the cake when it came to mixing fun with glamour.
Eschewing a traditional wedding reception which usually takes place after the wedding, the duo chose to have a pre-wedding reception under the dark night sky. Punctuated by gorgeous blooms and lush foliage the decor gave off tropical vibes as the duo posed while greeting their guests. Seated on a stage adorned with teal and gold-hued latticework and crystal chandeliers, Kirti and Kaival looked picture perfect. And, to end the evening on a high note was a performance by artists Bryden & Parth who bought the house down and compelled everyone to shake a leg.
Following a traditional route, the haldi was an intimate affair where the bride and groom were prepped up for their wedding day with a mixture of haldi and yogurt. Brimming with friendly banter everyone was at their playful best as they smeared Kaival with haldi and shared a laugh while teasing him.
Hosted under the open sky and on a vast lawn, the wedding was filled with grandeur and followed a pink and white color palette. Replete with pink, lilac and red blooms that were tastefully paired with silver metallic elements, the wedding fused traditional with contemporary styles perfectly. As sitarists played their melodic tunes well into the evening, the duo tied the knot in a fairytale-like ceremony that celebrated both their cultures.
