Pavni Chopra and Akshit Gupta, Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa, Thailand
Bedecked with vivid purple and pink blooms, this couple’s beachside sunset wedding in Thailand was majestic.
Backed by tropical beauty and packed with romance, Pavni Chopra and Akshit Gupta’s destination wedding celebrations on Thailand’s pristine shores were truly enchanting. Punctuated by heartfelt moments and stunning backdrops that showcased the beauty of Thailand, this delightful union was planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – The Wedding Network who were instrumental in making the couple’s dream a reality.
How They Met
Pavni and Akshit’s love story began in high school, but as fate would have it, life took them in different directions after school, with Akshit in Chicago and Pavni in Delhi. But then after graduating from their respective universities, they met once again and this time, there was no looking back!
To pop the question to Pavni, Akshit orchestrated a romantic wedding proposal by the beach. With a dramatic sunset sky in the back and a foliage-laden triangular arch dominating the beach, Akshit took Pavni by surprise as he went down on one knee with a ring in hand!
A versatile destination where creativity can take flight, Thailand is a favorite destination amongst Indian couples owing to its scenic landscape, top-notch hospitality and ease of convenience. For their celebrations, the duo chose Sheraton Hua Hin Resort and Spa which took their breath away with its spacious venues and luxurious rooms. Offering spellbinding views of the coast and a pristine beach, this resort ticked all the right boxes for Pavni and Akshit’s cheerful wedding celebrations.
Planning a destination wedding is not a cakewalk and to make sure their Thailand-based wedding was an unforgettable affair, Pavni and Akshit roped in The Wedding Network who with their expertise planned a series of seamless events with unique themes. Pavni shares, “The Wedding Network was super helpful throughout the entire wedding. Everything was well planned and fell into place seamlessly. They surpassed our expectations at every point and we felt blessed to have them on our wedding squad. We saw three weddings in a month and all of them were planned by The Wedding Network. We would highly recommend them!”
A sunlit celebration hosted on a lush lawn surrounded by greenery, the Satsang Pooja witnessed everyone exchanging pleasantries as they gathered together to seek blessings for the upcoming wedding. Decorated with pastel flowers and comfy white seating areas, everyone joined hands in peace to pray along with the couple for a successful union.
Hosted under the starlit sky, the Mehndi took the less beaten path by using glamorous elements that shone brightly in the night. With a canopy of fairy lights sheltering the guests, the celebration had the guests unleash their quirky side as they posed with colorful props.
At the After Party, youthful exuberance was at its finest as everyone donned breezy casuals for a night filled with dance, laughter and drinks. Glow in the dark face paints and accessories gave the party a techno-vibe while funny wigs induced peals of laughter.
Traditions took center stage at the Haldi as the venue was swathed in hues of yellow. Gold choodas suspended from the ceiling swayed in the wind while the yellow drapes contrasted against the bright blue sky and protected the couple from the sun as they got slathered with turmeric.
Resembling a desi fairytale with its soft pink and purple hues that complimented the purple sunset sky perfectly, the Wedding featured a decadent mandap making for some adorable moments between the duo. As the groom made a stylish entry with a lively baraat, Pavni looked graceful in her pink lehenga as she gently walked down the aisle towards the gorgeous mandap that awaited her in all its glory.
To end the celebrations on a high note of glitz, romance and exuberance, the Sangeet was hosted right after the wedding. Jam-packed with groovy performances, it was all things plush and romantic. A checkered foliage adorned tunnel greeted the guests, which once entered, treated everyone to a clear view of the stage where all the magic took place!
