How we met
“We met in Pune while he was here from the USA to visit his family. It wasn’t ‘love at first’ sight but strong emotions which swelled with time.”
Mehndi and Pool Party
“I designed all the décor with a little help from the internet and it was executed by Goa Celebrations, run by Brian Britto. The idea was to bring in all the colors via three bright colorful tents. I had the hot pink one.
I designed the outfits as well and had my local tailor in Pune produce them. I wore a pure Banarasi silk lehenga in hot red and paired it with a haldi yellow Banarasi silk blouse with red tassels on the back. Hair braided to one side, a meenakari maang tika and earrings finished the elegant look. The mehndi was followed by a fun pool party which included a bar setup with red and yellow drapes all over the pool area tied around the coconut trees.”
“The sangeet decor featured pearls and mirrors in the backdrop. We had a lovely start to this evening with Russian dancers and their LED performances. I wore a shimmering powder pink kurti on a mint lace skirt with a Lucknowi work dupatta with red brocade lining. My talented makeup artist- Makeovers by Sukanya, a MAC professional from Mumbai worked her magic. She gave me an elegant shimmer with long curls to go with it.”
“For the pheras I wore a traditional red velvet lehenga and my husband wore a royal blue achkan with real diamond buttons from Amrapali. The decor was minimal with pearls and roses suspended from a curtained mandap and Jaipuri chairs. My makeup was all about highlighting the eyes alongside a subtle, soft look that had my face glow all through the function.”
