How We Met
“Our brothers were roommates at university, and it was through them that Reeya and I were introduced to each other. At that time, I was living in New York, and Reeya was living in Ahmedabad. However, I was looking to make a move from my company, and by a stroke of luck, I landed a job at an architecture and planning firm in Ahmedabad. Reeya was my sounding board when I was considering shifting back. Once I got back, we started hanging out a lot and eventually began dating each other.”

The Proposal
“I proposed to Reeya while on a trip to New York. We met up with a couple of my friends from university for brunch in the Lower East Side and then headed uptown to Central Park, where I surprised her with a proposal at the Bethesda fountain.”

Wedding Venue
“Reeya and I wanted a fun, relaxed wedding with all our loved ones housed under one roof. After looking at various venues, we zeroed in on the Rayong Marriott Resort & Spa in Thailand. The beautiful location of the property, the number of venue options for various functions and the overall ambiance cemented our decision for choosing this property.”

Wedding Planning
“Our wedding was planned by Krish Events, and we had a fantastic experience working with them. Krishna’s energy, zeal, and attention to detail are amazing, and she ensured seamless execution of every event which left all our guests amazed. She also recommends some of the best vendors. Another bonus working with her is that she serves the best Thai food at meetings in her office and the mango and sticky rice there is out of this world!”

Wedding Functions

Mehendi
“The wedding celebrations kick-started with the mehendi which took the form of a sundowner event held on Fah Hill. The venue overlooked the vast expanse of the ocean which added to the scenic and elegant ambiance of the event."

Pool Party
“The following morning we hosted a pool party where the theme was pop art inspired by Andy Warhol’s works. The decor was filled with bright pops of color and prints. We also had vibrant cabanas that offered activities such as beer pong, giant Jenga, tarot reading and foot massages for guests. The weather was perfect, and all our guests enjoyed being in the pool. Street style food was on the menu, and we also served up a range of specialties from Bangkok.”

Sangeet
“With the evening came along the sangeet where the decor was based on the painting 'A Starry Night' by Van Gogh. We had some action-packed family performances that filled the evening with vigor and enthusiasm. This was followed by an amazing performance by Gurdeep Mehendi which led into an after party with DJ Dev on the console. The event was a smashing hit and the party finally ended at 6 am the following day."

Wedding
“After a relaxed 'Casino' themed lunch, it was time for the most important event of the entire line-up, the wedding. The function began with a baraat. The mandap setup on the beach overlooked the ocean. The theme for the event was inspired by the painting ‘Water Lily’ by Monet. Musicians flown in from Ahmedabad chanted Sanskrit shlokas, and that enhanced the traditional vibe of the ambiance while keeping our guests entertained.”

Reception
“After the pheras, the party moved to the Grand Lawns where we had an all-white setup for our reception. We cut our wedding cake here and screened the montage of photos and videos that had been put together by our photography team. The reception gave way to the neon after-party, which had all the guest in high spirits and that went on till the next morning!”

Advice For Couples
“Be detail oriented right from the beginning when planning your wedding. However, a week before the wedding, just lay off all the preparations and focus on enjoying yourselves. If the bride and the groom relax and have fun, the guests will naturally follow suit.”
