Rachita and Rohan, Jaipur
The mughal inspired gilded décor dotted with decadent red roses cast a magical, royal ambience on the wedding festivities.
Childhood sweethearts Rachita and Rohan commemorated more than a decade of love and friendship with a charming, royal wedding. Brimming with moments of joy and laughter, the candor of their revelries were captured in gorgeous frames by WeddingSutra Favorite – Shutterdown.
How They Met
The couple discovered true love at the tender age of 16, and knew they had found their partner for life. “When Rohan, who was a family friend, expressed his feelings to me, I knew right away that I wanted to be with him. However, with a dreamy idea of romance at that age built by movies and books, I waited for a few days before reciprocating my feelings” she chuckles. “What followed were 12 years of friendship, fights, happiness, long distance and so much more that created a lasting base for a life-long commitment and love. In 2019, we brought our family into the fold, and tied the knot in March of 2020”.
The couple envisioned a destination wedding, and found their perfect venue at Indana Palace Jaipur. Their dream wedding was brought to life with memorable functions featuring distinct themes. Their joyous wedding was a fitting celebration of their years of love and friendship, full of candid moments of laughter and enjoyment, which were captured perfectly by Shutterdown.
The festivities kicked off with a vibrant mehndi that was a kaleidoscopic blend of colors and traditions! Called Rangilo Raas, the joyous, multi-colored event saw quirky props such as umbrellas and tassels, swings, flowers, drapes, bohemian caricatures and more. The groom wore a forest green ensemble while the bride twirled in hues of orange and pink, decked with blooms.
Hosted in the ballroom area, the elegant engagement night saw glam décor of white and gold with flowers and foliage, bathed in a warm golden glow. The exuberant night was full of fun replete with dance performances, emotional speeches and a heartwarming ring ceremony. The bride dazzled in a golden gown by Amit Aggarwal, while the groom looked dapper in a black tuxedo.
The fun and laughter of the Haldi function was framed perfectly against the vibrant backdrop of yellow and orange marigolds. The sun-kissed bride and groom sitting in royal brass trays were a picture of happiness as they were showered with flower petals. The bride stood out in a bright turquoise saree that made for a stunning contrast against the yellow décor.
The opulent wedding festivities saw a rich décor of gold gota thread and red roses with Mughal influences, that conjured a truly royal ambience, while the sparkling fireworks and cold pyro added shades of splendor. The bride looked resplendent in a rich red lehenga with gold dabka and tilla work, adorned with exquisite polka jewelry and a Mughal passa. The groom complemented her in a gold and beige sherwani.
