Chennai-based bride Devanshi Kapadia and her groom Krishna Iswaran’s North Indian wedding was a vibrant celebration hosted in the bride’s childhood city, Bangkok in Thailand. Planned flawlessly by WeddingSutra Favorite – Krish Events the wedding was an unforgettable affair. And, to make sure the spirits remained high throughout the proceedings was WeddingSutra Favorite – DJ AJ who belted out rocking tracks that had everyone flaunting their best moves.
How They Met
Devanshi first met Krishna, her best friend Vinayak’s brother, on her college graduation day. She felt she had known him for a long time thanks to all the stories she had heard about him from Vinayak. She shares, “Krishna and I both felt a certain way about each other back then but didn’t give in to our feelings. Life gave us another chance when we met again in Goa at our college reunion as Krishna crashed our trip out of the blue. It has been five years since then, and now we’re happily married.”
The globetrotting bride grew up in Bangkok, Thailand, and graduated from Philadelphia, US. After moving to Mumbai for work, she relocated to Chennai where she’s currently based. Having her loved ones based in Bangkok, getting married in her hometown was the best choice and something she had always dreamt of. The couple chose Anantara Riverside & Avani + Riverside for their wedding celebrations.
The couple kickstarted their wedding celebrations in style by hosting the first sundowner party on the cruise ship, The Wonderful Pearl. The event saw about 800 guests in attendance. Devanshi, wearing a white ensemble by Samant Chauhan, entered hand-in-hand with Krishna, who opted for a printed blue suit by Suket Dhir. Everyone relished the free-flowing cocktails and dazzling fireworks display.
The ‘Bad and Boujee’ themed after-party for the youngsters was a night to remember with people dressed in chic outfits making their way to the stage. The bride and the groom put their fashion foot forward with Krishna in a slate-grey suit, and Devanshi in a baby pink satin set from Praise. The elders in the family too had an eventful evening dancing to the live foot-tapping music.
The boho-chic mehndi festival saw guests at their vibrant best. The colorful decor set the perfect mood for the day function where mehndi artists dotted the venue and impressed guests with their creativity and finesse. The couple of the hour made a stunning entry at this event, and Devanshi looked elegant in her beige Anamika Khanna lehenga with floral embroidery and feather details. Krishna looked dapper in his blush pink kurta and printed jacket by Abhishek Gupta.
Their sangeet night followed a ‘Jewels Of Siam’ theme where the entire venue was lit up in jewel tones. Red, the prominent color, exuded romantic charm, while golden elements were added to enhance the bling factor. The couple complemented each other with their ensembles; Krishna wore a purple bandhgala creation by Raghavendra Rathore, and Devanshi flaunted a wine lehenga with sequins by Falguni Shane Peacock.
The traditional Gujarati wedding was a vibrant affair with a yellow color palette, and the decor that incorporated lots of fresh marigold blooms and sunny drapes. Krishna entered in a tuk-tuk wearing a beautiful white sherwani by Rajesh Pratap Singh which he matched with a golden headgear and ruby red layered neckpiece. Devanshi, on the other hand, looked ravishing in an elegant ensemble from Agunj by Gunjan Arora.
The final function of their wedding celebrations was a vertical garden-themed reception where the venue was beautifully decorated with white flowers and lush greens. The night was full of heartfelt speeches followed by the newlyweds’ first dance as man and wife. The bride looked elegant in a shimmery silver gown by Amit Aggarwal, while the groom opted for a bespoke tuxedo by Duly.
