Aarti and Ankit, Jaipur
Replete with color and music, this couple’s wedding celebrations were an opulent treat for the senses.
Surrounded by the majestic Rajasthani architecture, Aarti and Ankit’s nuptials were a treat for the eyes with its magical grandeur. Mixing contemporary and traditional styles together, each element of their wedding expressed their vivacious personalities. Photographed flawlessly by WeddingSutra Favorite – CineLove Productions who captured all the loving moments between the couple and their families with their superior expertise, this wedding was a glamorous celebration of love.
How They Met
Aarti recollects, “Ankit and I first met in college where I walked into the classroom and saw him sitting there. At first, I thought that I’d entered the wrong room but he reassured me that I had come to the right place! It was love at first sight for him apparently!”
Conscious about the fact that planning a grand wedding is a colossal task requiring utmost precision, the duo decided to rope in experienced vendors who’d understand their vision and guide them through the process. On the photography front, they chose CineLove Productions and were absolutely thrilled with the results. The couple shares, “Team CineLove Productions are thorough professionals and extremely creative. They were always on time and never made us feel aware of the camera. Their knack for setting us at ease shows through the pictures as it expresses every emotion beautifully. They’re amazing people to work with and we’d happily collaborate with them again!”
Mata Ki Chowki
With a decor swathed in hues of red and adorned with rajnigandha, the Mata Ki Chowki was an auspicious celebration that signified the beginning of the nuptials.
Taking a distinctly traditional route, the Haldi decor reflected varied shades of yellow and was held under the glaring Rajasthani sun. As everyone playfully gathered around the groom to smear him with Haldi, the joy in the air was palpable and everyone shared a laugh as they dodged Ankit’s Haldi laden palms!
Stepping up the glamour quotient, the cocktail followed a black, green, and white color palette. With upbeat music playing in the background amidst flawless decor, everyone shook a leg and gathered around the couple to celebrate their love.
The Mehendi stayed true to its quirky and colorful theme with samba dancers heralding the couple’s entry and a limbo dancing game that had everyone shaking a leg. Hosted under the azure sky, it was a fun filled occasion as everyone danced to the beats of the dhol along with the couple.
After the traditional Haldi and Mehendi, the duo decided to give glamour a healthy boost with a glitzy engagement function in which everyone turned up in their best attire. Following a ‘glamorous gold’ theme hosted in a vast banquet hall, the decor was replete with contemporary chandeliers and vintage bulb lanterns that cast a golden glow over everyone.
Saving the best for the last, Aarti and Ankit made sure that the big day was a true feast for the eyes with a classic peach and pink color palette that exuded a traditional Indian theme. Romantic and cheery, the wedding decor resembled a fairytale as it was flanked by majestic architecture
