How We Met

Turkish Night / Welcome Dinner
The welcome dinner marked the arrival of Rahul and Harshita’s guests not just to the wedding but also to the beautiful port city. The couple wanted to give them a taste of Turkey. They did so via the décor themed Turkish Night which gave everyone a glimpse into Turkish culture.
The second day dawned on the pool party and its colorful, cheerful theme. Harshita embraced the vibe in a powder pink floral outfit, finishing her look with pretty floral jewellery. The couple made a dramatic entry and also hired performers that mesmerized the guests.
Their sangeet was an unforgettable night of glamour, extravagance and non-stop dancing. Performances by friends and family radiated love and excitement.
