How We Met
“Our story dates back to six years ago when Hemal and I first met in Nainital through a mutual friend. Who knew that the short trip would lead me to my life partner? We kept in touch after the trip and became close friends over time. It wasn’t until when our parents started hunting for our respective life partners, that we realized our love for each other. They say opposites attract, and we just prove that saying right! However, we share a rare and precious bond that outshines all differences. Our parents noticed that and gave us their blessings."

Wedding Venue
“Mahabaleshwar brings back a thousand childhood memories for both us, and with our wedding being in March, it was just the perfect location for our nuptials! The Le Méridien Mahabaleshwar Resort & Spa there amazed us with its wonderland setting.”

Wedding Planning
“The wedding planning process was smooth sailing with Vishal & Anway of the Purple Chariot by our side. They flawlessly aligned our wishes with their creative vision and ensured the best for our cherished occasion. Even our photography, handled by Knotting Bells, was remarkable. We appreciate all the planning and effort put in by the spirited team. Hriya Marfatia, my makeup artist, and Latika Jathar, my hairstylist, made sure I was camera ready at all times!”

Wedding Functions

Mehndi
“Our wedding festivities began on a bright and colorful note with the mehndi. The decor included vibrant cushions, umbrellas, and charming flower pots which set the perfect vibe for the outdoor function. Further, the dhol (traditional drums) players had everyone dancing in high spirits!”
