Bride Simi Singh believes that sometimes you have to be at the right place at the right time for magic to happen. Her chance encounter with Ketur in Miami marked the beginning of a journey of a lifetime. After dating for a while, they realized that getting married was the next natural step in their relationship. They decided to host a beautiful wedding in gorgeous Pattaya, Thailand. Simi shares with us the highlights of their wedding and pictures clicked by WeddingSutra Favorite Infinite Memories.

How We Met
“Ketur is from New Jersey, US, and I am from Odense, Denmark. Both of us happened to be traveling to Miami on the same weekend. Although we were there for different reasons, we struck up a conversation with which began what we call our ‘Loveventure’ that took us London, New York, Atlanta, New Delhi, Copenhagen, and finally Thailand where we tied the knot.”

Proposal
“After all the traveling across continents, we realized we were meant to be together. Ketur finally popped the question with a beautiful ring at Copenhagen airport!”

Wedding Venue
“As our families are spread all over the world, we thought Thailand would be the most suitable location for all of us. We wanted an intimate wedding with only close relatives and were looking for a place with a holiday vibe with sunny skies, fresh ocean breeze, and powder-soft sandy beaches. We visited many properties before zeroing on Dusit Thani Pattaya as it has stunning natural backdrops. The hotel also has immense experience managing Indian weddings which also was a big plus. The Indian chef at the hotel was very accommodating and did a fabulous job catering to the guests at our wedding.”

Wedding Planning
“Planning the wedding was intense and took us a whole year to put everything together. We had a bunch of concepts in mind for our wedding, however, to bring them to life, we knew that we required some assistance. Fortunately for us, we found some of the most supportive people, and with them on our side, we were able to bring our ideas to life and organize our dream wedding. The photography was taken care of by Infinite Memories and getting them to capture our special day was the best decision we ever made! Mohit and his team were patient, super creative and very efficient. They managed to freeze every important moment right from our pre-wedding shoot to our reception. DJ Swap who is the resident DJ of nightclub LimaLima in Pattaya played at all our events. He knew just the kind of music that was needed to keep the crowd on their feet. Simran Takkar was my makeup artist who knew exactly what I liked and made me look gorgeous with minimal makeup. The choreographer for the performances at our sangeet as well as our first dance was the very talented duo Anil-Nisha.”

Wedding Functions

Haldi and Welcome Lunch
“Ketur and I had separate haldi ceremonies which marked the beginning of our wedding. Once we had finished this ritual, it was time for the welcome lunch which was hosted at a restaurant in Dusit Thani. The venue afforded breathtaking views of the ocean and was the perfect place for the Patels and Singhs to come together to welcome their guests to the wedding.”

Mehendi
“Unlike most mehendi functions, ours took place in the evening, and we decided to call it ‘Mehendi and Margaritas.” This event was an outdoor event at the Chaba Pool at Dusit Thani. The decor was designed to look like a concert with an ‘Arabic Night’ feel. There were decorated gazebos, palm trees with hanging paper lamps, a flower wall and a flower wreath for the couple’s seating area. The color scheme was primarily gold, pink and red.”

Pheras
“Our mandap was set up at a spot that overlooked the ocean, and the whole setup was straight out of a dream. We avoided anything flashy and went with a subtle palette that included peach and white as the key colors of the drapes, furniture, and flowers. Since this was a daytime event, it was suggested to us to have a gazebo for the guests to sit under. However, we didn’t want to take the natural beauty away from the place. We did a little bit of research on other alternatives and finally decided to give each one of our guests a paper parasol. They were lightweight, so nobody felt weighed down at any point. Plus, the parasols offered protection from the sun and also doubled up as great decor elements!”

Reception
“Our entry into our reception venue was truly grand. Both of us walked in holding hands, and professional Thai dancers performed beside us as they welcomed us into the venue as man and wife. The decor for this event too was subtle, but here we wanted to add a touch of glam to the otherwise muted setting. Therefore, we used golden frames with shimmer and light pink drapes to create the backdrop of the stage. The whole vibe was elegant and romantic.”
