Contemporary, chic, cool – Sanaa Choksi’s bridal avatars are what dreams are made of!
Stylish, sizzling and absolutely sensational, Sanaa Choksi’s bridal trousseau featured a wonderful range of interesting colors and cuts including a glamorous Patiala creation and a lehenga in earthy shades of red.
How we met
“While we had a lot of friends in common, Parth had sent me a Facebook friend request but we’d also matched on a dating app called Hinge. On our first date, extremely jet lagged, he seemed rather boring and I decided not to meet him again but we stayed in touch.
One day, while we were chatting he asked to meet and though hesitant, I gave in. It was our second date and it went so well! I thought he was lovely and interesting. It all began to come together and after a month of dating, we took a trip to Goa together.”
Sanaa wore a gorgeous Patiala by Sabyasachi to her sangeet. The outfit, a perfect balance of embroidery and color, was accessorized with statement jewellery – a maang tikka that highlighted the subtle makeup that accentuated the bride’s features.
Sanaa says, “The wedding just had a beautiful vibe to it and our loved ones were moved to tears watching us wed in the serene surroundings. We felt the depth of that union as it was created and it was a day we will cherish forever.” Sanaa wore a beautiful red Raw Mango creation to the ceremony. Apart from her maang tikka and nath and a Cartier love bracelet, the bride went sentimentally vintage and wore her mother’s jewellery through the celebrations.
“Soon after the ceremony, it was time for the after-party,” Sanaa remembers, “Glamor and glitz with all things shiny was the order of the evening. The party was extremely chic. My outfit was a dazzling creation by Gaurav Gupta, perfect for the glamor quotient of the party.”
Hanging chandeliers and florals adorned the big ballroom where the reception was held. For the evening, Sanaa wore Sabyasachi in terra beige and brown with beautiful embroidery. The good vibes continued with lots of fun music and dancing.
Love is a many splendored thing and the bride was the epitome of that in all her stylish looks at her celebrations.
