Vrinda and Gaurav, Nandi Greens, New Delhi
Bright color-blocking decor and stunning floral arrangements formed the ideal backdrop to this fun-filled wedding.
The auspicious ceremonies and vibrant festivities of this grand Delhi wedding were documented in detail and captured in stunning pictorial memoirs for the bride and groom to cherish forever.
How They Met
The groom says, “We’ve known each other for around 10 years. We were acquaintances and had been dating other people. While I was in New York, we’d occasionally speak and somehow we met during every trip I made back home. On one of my trips back to India, egged on by her friends, Vrinda confessed she had a soft spot for me via a text message. She refused to talk to me after that! It took us a while, but we eventually spoke about it and started seeing each other.”
Gaurav planned a romantic proposal on one of their many trips together. He says, “Vrinda had never seen the Taj Mahal so I surprised her with a trip to Agra and proposed to her while we were visiting the monument.”
The bride and groom hosted their wedding at Nandi Greens in New Delhi. Talking about the location and their service, Gaurav says, “They’re the best in the business and served us exquisite food for a full 12 hours!”
The ceremony to kickstart the wedding celebrations was the haldi. The decor was primarily in yellow, reminiscent of a bright summer morning. Streamers of yellow and white flowers created the perfect backdrop for the ceremony, as guests lined up to smear the bride’s and groom’s faces with turmeric.
Marigold streamers and pinwheels were used to add some fun to the decor for the mehndi function. The couple wore yellow and white outfits and the bride choose stunning floral accessories to elevate her look. Guests were in a jovial mood as they cheered the dancing couple on. The function continued late into the evening, as the open-air venue gorgeously lit up with twinkling lights.
The groom looked dashing in a blush pink sherwani while the bride looked heavenly in a floral embroidered lehenga in shades of pink. The decor for the wedding consisted mainly of elements in shades of white and pink, and the venue looked like a floral paradise. A pastel pink canopy large enough to hold the mandap as well as seating for all the guests was created. Tassel streamers decorated the mandap, while an elegant floral chandelier hung above the couple as the pheras were performed. The lawn was decked up in the same theme, with tuberoses and streamers hanging from tree branches lending a romantic look.
