Zorawar and Jasmine, Rajasthali Resort and Spa, Jaipur
This Jaipur wedding was a royal extravaganza, made extra special by its opulent venue.
From the groom’s remarkable entry on an elephant to the regal ensembles of the couple, Zorawar and Jasmine’s destination wedding at the Rajasthali Resort and Spa in Jaipur was a grand affair that was planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – Fiestro Events. Deftly shot by WeddingSutra Favorite – Oragraphy, the occasion certainly served as an inspiration to other couples. The groom shares details from the wedding below.
How They Met
“We were introduced by a mutual friend. Even though our initial meeting in Vancouver was as strangers, it did not feel like we were meeting for the first time. We clicked pretty well and traveled frequently between Toronto and Vancouver to spend as much time as we could together!”
Being in a long distance relationship isn’t always easy and it certainly comes with its ups and downs, but Zorawar and Jasmine’s bond stood the test of time. Soon, Zorawar realized he wanted to make it official and proposed to the love of his life. Reminiscing about the surprise proposal, he says, “I proposed to Jasmine in New York while we were on a boat. She was not expecting a ring that night!”
“We shortlisted Rajasthali Resort as the wedding venue in Jaipur. It was perfect for the number of guests we were anticipating. The setting, on-site venues and accommodation was unique. We found just what we were looking for!”
Zorawar says, “Decor and color themes were all planned by Jasmine and me (thanks to Pinterest). We had a clear idea of what we wanted and Fiestro Events did a good job executing everything. They did a really good job with the Baraat as well.”
The couple was particularly impressed by the wedding photography team, praising them. Zorawar says, “Hire Oragraphy! They were the best wedding vendors we’ve personally dealt with.”
Ring Ceremony and Sangeet
For the ring ceremony, the bride and groom opted for contemporary looks. While Zorawar wore a suit, Jasmine donned a stunning evening gown as they arrived hand-in-hand to the venue. The guests were in high spirits and cheered for the happy couple as they exchanged rings. Keeping up with the excitement, the couple and their wedding guests made their way to the dance floor and grooved to heady beats of desi music all night long.
The wedding festivities took off with a haldi ceremony, where the couple’s loved ones gathered to celebrate the auspicious and fun ritual. The decor was resplendent with bright, colorful drapes and marigold blooms. The bride chose an amber-colored outfit with mirror-work on the bodice, while the groom wore a white kurta and bottoms with a floral-print bandhgala. Zorawar and Jasmine enjoyed every bit of their haldi, which involved games, laughter, dhols and a lot of dancing. The photographers captured them sharing a sweet moment on a swing that was accented with floral streamers.
For the Anand Karaj, the couple arrived at the venue in a vintage car, channeling royal vibes. Jasmine wore a pastel-pink embellished lehenga while Zorawar donned an embroidered ivory sherwani with a velvet green shawl. Surrounded by their loved ones, the couple sought blessings from the almighty as they entered into the eternal bond of marriage.
The wedding ceremony of the couple was a grand affair, with hundreds of lights illuminating the palace and fireworks lighting up the sky. Dressed in a black sherwani with a maroon turban and shawl, the groom made his entry to the venue on an elephant, while the bride arrived in a floral palanquin. The couple socialized with their guests and danced to romantic numbers as they joyfully celebrated their union.
