Bhavya and Vedant Gupta’s dreamy destination wedding in Goa was designed by WeddingSutra Favorite – Exotic Goa Events to be a unique celebration of their love and was filled with gorgeous decor, beautiful personal touches, and unforgettable moments. Watch it all unfold below.
How they met
Real Estate Agent Bhavya Gupta and Marketing professional Vedant Gupta crossed paths while studying at the same University. After 7 years of growing and building their lives together, they decided to take their relationship to the next level and tied the knot in a memorable celebration of love.
Having always dreamed of a beach soiree, the couple fell in love with Goa’s Beleza By the Beach at first sight and booked the entire resort for an intimate wedding. The lush green property offered a cozy, magical ambiance for their celebrations.
They brought on board Exotic Goa Events to plan, design, and orchestrate their festivities. They share, “We wanted an intimate and extremely personalized wedding which highlighted moments from our relationship so much so that all our guests felt delighted to be part of it and expressed to us how they felt being a part of our love story. Working with Exotic Goa Events was incredible. Lizzie, who was my point of contact, incorporated everything I wanted, working with countless revisions, mood boards, zoom calls, and more. I had been planning the wedding for over 6 months, and Team Exotic Goa Events has been nothing short of spectacular in bringing it all to life and making our wedding so special.”
The celebrations kicked off with a vibrant beachside mehndi soiree. Hosted on the property lawns, the function saw colorful floral decor with a blend of quirky and traditional aesthetics with props, prints, and textures that added tons of flavor to the lush greenery. Adding their flair to the tradition of green attire, the bride and groom sported modern shades of olive and sage for the occasion, topping off their chic looks with sunglasses.
For her mehndi, the bride incorporated tons of sweet memories and personal touches, such as all the landmarks in Australia where they shared their relationship milestones, funny memories from their life together, their dog’s name, etc.
The festivities turned up a notch with a glitzy Sangeet night. Exotic foliage and flowers interspersed with shimmering disco balls, crystals and lights set an enchanted forest tone for the decor, while rousing music, dance performances, and spectacular cocktails were enjoyed by all. The groom dazzled in a classic tuxedo, while the bride stole some hearts in a whimsical pastel pink lehenga with all-over pastel floral embroidery, perfectly matching the enchanting decor vibe.
The next day began on a fun note with a lively Haldi ceremony and rain dance. Breezy drapes, hangings, and flowers in a sunset palette set a vibrant ambiance, which was further amped up with smoke bombs as the couple entered the venue. The groom wore a mustard yellow achkan while the bride opted for a unique printed red and orange lehenga with floral jewelry.
Imagined with a charming boho vibe, the sundowner wedding on the beach was filled with moments of pure magic. The overcast sky from the past few days cleared up on cue for the most enchanting sunset nuptials, leaving all their guests mesmerized.
The bride walked down a glass mirror aisle with both her parents to a song from Rehna Hai Tere Dil me, something her husband imagined her doing years ago. The emotional moment was lit up with the wonder of cold pyros and the couple exchanged garlands to their dream wedding song. Dressed in matching tones of cream and gold, they looked like the portrait of love as they tied the knot surrounded by a haze of blessings, love, and rose petals.
Since the couple couldn’t bring their fur baby from Australia for the wedding, the groom planned the most wonderful surprise for the bride. With help from their friends back home, he got the most adorable pictures of the pooch in different outfits for each of their functions, which the team of Exotic Goa Events then incoporated for every event with massive cutouts and hashtags. Knowing he was there with them in spirit, the surprise left the bride incredibly moved and thrilled beyond compare.
Advice for couples
“Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, but how ever crazy the lead-up may be, be sure to be 100% present for every moment when the time finally comes. Fiascos will unequivocally happen, and there’s nothing you’ll be able to do about them, so just sit back, relax and enjoy the roller coaster of emotions that will be your wedding, because it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!”
