A long-distance romance between childhood friends that culminated in a dreamy proposal with flowers and candles, Aanchal Ojha and Vivek Agrawal’s story is one for the ages. Planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – Super-Duper Weddings, their palatial wedding celebrations in Jodhpur were just as beautiful as their journey. Watch it unfold in these breathtaking frames below by WeddingSutra Favorite – Seventy by Two.
For their dream destination wedding, the couple envisioned grand, palatial festivities and headed to the blue city of Jodhpur. After multiple visits, they froze on Welcomhotel by ITC Hotels, Jodhpur for their pre-wedding functions, and the stunning WelcomHeritage Bal Samand Lake Palace for the nuptials. The team of Super-Duper Weddings was brought on board to bring all their ideas to life.
Their special moments were captured by Team Seventy by Two.
The festivities kicked off on an intimate note with a rustic-chic family dinner. Gazebos with ivory drapes and fairy lights, wooden elements, white flowers, foliage, and warm hanging lights came together in the most magical setting for the evening.
The next began with vibrant mehndi celebrations by the pool. The vivid decor palette of blue, white, and yellow was loaded with lush greenery and boisterous moments full of fun, music, and alcohol. The guests were invited to enjoy beer and capture memories at the photo booths, while the couple’s grand entry with color pyros left them in awe!
The evening revved up with the glitz and glamor of the Sangeet soiree. The avid Bollywood buffs had their very own filmy experience full of bling, musical moments, dazzling dances, and a lot more.
The wedding day began with the warm and vibrant rituals of Haldi. The traditional decor of marigolds, bells, and petals cast a serene atmosphere which was soon filled with laughter and joy as everyone gathered around the couple to shower them with haldi and blessings. The couple and their loved ones had the time of their lives playing “phoolon ki haldi” as dhol beats filled the air.
The couple and their loved ones headed to the glorious WelcomHeritage Bal Samand Lake Palace for the wedding ceremony, Bal Samand Lake Palace, which was historically the Monsoon Palace and housed the Royal family’s stables – a tradition that continues to this day, offered a romantic and indulgent ambiance for the dreamy nuptials. A beautiful palace of red sandstone with ornate Rajput architecture overlooking India’s first man-made lake dating back to the 12th century, the property gave their guests unmatched vistas and memories they would cherish forever.
The mesmerizing setup saw a floating mandap with a rustic rock wall, flowing drapes, and flowers. “Jharokhas” with big golden bells and warm lights conjured a picturesque backdrop against which the couple exchanged garlands. After the “phera” ceremony, everyone headed back to the first hotel for champagne, cake, and unlimited fun.
