How We Met
“Rahul and I met in business school, and we didn’t hit it off right away. We fought through school and could not even stand the sight of each other at times. However, we realized our feelings for each other only towards the end of our course. We decided to give our relationship a shot only when we moved miles apart after graduating! Finally, after three years and numerous airlines miles later, we figured out that we were perfect for each other and decided to get married.”

Wedding Functions
“We wanted to keep our whole wedding intimate and fun, and that was the basis of all our choices - from the venues to the events. We were super involved in the planning, but in hindsight we could have been more involved. We also made sure our functions were hosted outdoors, by the beach.”

Mehendi and Cocktail
“We wanted to keep the mehendi function colorful, relaxed and fun and chose our outfits accordingly. For the decor, we wanted something that reflected both our personalities - Rahul is a crazy football fan, and I am a die-hard Bollywood fan, so the decor was inspired by a mix of Manchester United and Bollywood!”

Haldi
“We wanted to keep the haldi function a simple but a fun one. We wanted to keep the haldi function one simple but fun. My bridesmaids and I coordinated our outfits for this event. While the ladies were involved in the ritual, we amped up the fun factor for our other guests by giving them water guns, balloons and kites to keep them engaged. We all flew kites, got wet and danced away. We had a DJ for all our events to keep the atmosphere lively and fun."

Wedding
“We pictured our wedding taking place right at the sunset hour and planned that accordingly. We wanted the decor to reflect the beautiful hues of a stunning sunset. I was very specific about the blue lehenga and neon green blouse I would wear for this function - and hats off to my sister and the Anita Dongre staff on making that happen. Thanks to the cooperation of our family members and friends, the pheras took place exactly during the sunset hour. To be honest, I was distracted by the beautiful sunset during the pheras and managed to peek at the view a couple of times! It was the most memorable day of my life. My favorite wedding moment was when Rahul performed on a Bollywood number for me! When he was sitting at the mandap and saw me walk towards him, the talented team of The Wedding Salad did a great job of capturing this moment for us. They were able to click such great pictures of the pheras - even when we were surrounded by friends and family.”
