Our series, 'Featured Weddings' brings you wonderful moments from weddings held at the finest venues across different cities. Here, we bring you details from Sheetal and Sandeep’s lavish wedding celebrations in Jodhpur.

How we Met
Sheetal and Sandeep met at a mutual friend’s birthday party and became friends. “I was impressed by Sheetal’s beautiful smile when we first met. I also liked the way she was thoroughly enjoying herself singing and dancing with her friends. She had a very elegant persona…” Sandeep recalls with a smile.

The couple met many times after that party and discovered they shared a lot in common. “We found we had so many similarities in terms of our thinking, hobbies and life goals When we met each other’s families, both sides were very happy. We decided that we wanted to share the rest of our lives together. We got married and that was the most remarkable day of our lives!” Sandeep shared, adding, “Everyonce in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale and then the story begins.” The couple certainly had a dreamy, fairytale wedding in Jodhpur to kickstart their married life.

Wedding Venue and Festivities
The wedding ceremonies started with a colourful mehendi function at the regal Pratap Niwas - an Amritara Resort in Jodhpur. Held on the sprawling lawns of the hotel, the event was a colourful do with bright yellow, red, green and orange seating arrangements. Pretty Arabian lanterns on poles added a further splash of colour. Green seemed to be the theme for the event for the couple as Sheetal donned a pretty light green lehenga and Sandeep a darker green kurta. Guests enjoyed various activities at the event such as getting their tarot and palms read. There was even a numerologist to suss out lucky numbers if someone wanted. And that was not all – a magician entertained the gathering and a lively garbha troop welcomed the couple to the ceremony. A unique “Vivaah” dance theme was especially created for the mehendi function by the Dance Smith group.
