Twishaa and Aadit, Ahmedabad
With dainty décor and joyous family functions, this couple’s intimate farmhouse wedding celebrated their saga of love.
High-school sweethearts Twishaa Bhagat and Aadit Dalal commemorated more than a decade of love with a beautiful intimate farmhouse wedding that was as awe-inspiring as their story. Weddingsutra Favorite – Sam & Ekta captured the tender nuances of their love and revelries in stunning shots.
How They Met
The bride shares, “We were introduced by a mutual friend during our school days, and had become the best of friends. Pretty soon our friendship blossomed into deeper feelings, and we started dating, but for a while it was just puppy love. However with time, our feelings for each other grew stronger right through high school, college and then post graduation. After a decade of being together, Aadit popped the question to me amidst our close friends, and there was no looking back since”.
Originally planned to be hosted across two cities, after the Pandemic, Twishaa and Aadit’s wedding was finally held at her farmhouse in Ahmedabad, which was perfectly intimate for their celebration.
The celebrated team of Sam & Ekta was entrusted to capture their special moments. The bride shares, “Since I saw their work, I wanted them to shoot my wedding. Sam & Ekta were sweet, accommodating and exceptionally professional throughout, despite the changes in dates and venue. Our experience with them for our pre-wedding shoot was incredible, and we knew we had made the right call. They made us and our family so comfortable on camera, and they completely blended into our festivities like we had been friends all our lives. We highly recommend them.”
Prasang Events was roped in to plan the details, while Myriad Event Stylists and Decorators executed the décor.
The festivities kicked off with a pooja, followed by a sunny Mehndi function held in the lawns of the bride’s family farmhouse. Stepping away from the usual bright colors that are used for Mehndi décor, they opted for dainty ivory hues. Strings of mogras and shevantis added serenity to the lush surroundings along with Jodhpuri tents and other traditional accents. The bride looked divine in a teal blue velvet lehenga by Sabyasachi Mukherjee which perfectly complemented the groom’s sky blue attire.
The Mehndi function extended into the Sangeet, and as the evening progressed, bright shimmering lights added some whimsy to the décor. There were LED Cabanas as well as a stage with a stunning foliage backdrop and LED lights, where the couple and their loved ones reveled to the music amidst several performances through the evening late into the night.
The sunny afternoon Haldi was a fun-filled event with grooving DJ music and a phoolon ki holi. The bride and groom donned quirky yellow outfits as they were covered with turmeric paste and showered with red rose petals and water amidst peals of laughter. Bright marigolds added some citrus magic to the green environs.
The wedding saw rustic romantic décor that looked enchanting framed against the farmhouse and its verdant lawns. Blooms of red and pink dotted the greenery of the venue as well as the earthy mandap, making for a natural yet breathtaking setup. The bride and groom contrasted the vibrancy of the décor in soft ivory and blush hues that created a delightful contrast to the shower of red rose petals as they exchanged their vows.

“Plan well in advance, but once the wedding comes around, take those last few days to just focus on yourself, your partner and your family. Your celebration is the time for you to reap the fruits of your planning, just let go and enjoy.”
