Forum and Vishal, Navi Mumbai
With a delicate white entryway and a pastel-hued floral mandap, this couple’s wedding was truly elegant.
Childhood sweethearts, Forum Gori, an interior designer, and Vishal Punjabi, an entrepreneur’s love story began with a wholesome friendship that slowly blossomed into love. Decorated and designed by WeddingSutra Favorite – Perfect Decor who used their talents and creativity to the fullest, this wedding was a treat for the eyes with its soft color palette that personified elegance.
How They Met
Forum shares, “We were actually in the same school but didn’t know each other then. But as fate would have it, we crossed paths in junior college where we were introduced at the bus stop through a mutual friend of mine. At that time I was already dating someone, and so Vishal and I became good friends. Our friendship carried on for four years by when I realised I had fallen in love with him! I always thought I’d need to work on my physical appearance if I was ever to find true love, but Vishal changed that in me by making me feel like a million bucks! When I met him, I recognized a kindred spirit and he truly understood my heart.
Even today, if I’m having a bad day, it is he who emboldens me to believe in myself. I am so proud to say that I didn’t have to change myself in any form to find my love. Even though we are two completely different people personality-wise, we balance each other out perfectly. While I may sometimes panic over a situation, he’s the cool, calm and practical one who gets us through. We’ve known each other for eleven years and are aware that every relationship has its fair share of ups and downs, but it’s how one overcomes them is what matters. We both constantly help each other become the best versions of ourselves.”
“Our wedding was fully planned beforehand and both of us played equal roles in planning it. We decided to have an intimate wedding with a short guest list and chose an open area where our creativity could run free.” shares Forum.
Equipped with an airtight plan, the duo then roped in Perfect Decor who understood their vision from the very start. This happy bride shares, “We had the best experience with team Perfect Decor. Once we narrated our vision to them, they comprehended it beautifully and got busy with the execution. With them on our squad, we were confident that we could sit back and enjoy our wedding to the fullest, knowing that they were taking care of everything. We have been so happy with their proficiency and talent that we would happily work with them again!”
Surrounded by delicate shades of peach and pink, the couple’s wedding looked straight out of a fairytale. Delicate arches adorned with dainty white blooms welcomed guests to their loving union where Forum and Vishal glowed with happiness as they took vows for life. Bedecked with pastel-hued flowers that were accentuated with gold lanterns, the mandap was a treat for the eyes. Forum shares, “Vishal and I had already decided a theme where we had envisioned a pastel and floral decor. After that, we discussed our ideas with team Perfect Decor in great detail and they understood us flawlessly. Everything was designed beautifully!”
