Hello my dears! I had promised you the most beautiful weddings this week and today’s wedding lives up to my word. In yesterday’s post we featured Shraddha and Sanket’s pre wedding functions and in today’s post we get you every last image of their stunning ‘picnic themed’outdoor wedding at Aaloa Hills in Ahmedabad. If you are just catching up with us- Our bride in today’s feature, Shraddha is a professional photographer herself so you can expect the most gorgeous photos possible! Shraddha and Sanket met on a matrimonial site and had their first date at Aaloa Hills. So when it came time to decide on a wedding venue, Aaloa Hills seemed like the perfect venue choice.
PEACH AND BLUE THEMED GARDEN WEDDING
As wedding planners we have seen that luxurious weddings are now moving out of five star hotels and into fancily dressed-up garden weddings. Shradddha and Sanket based their wedding on a outdoor picnic theme. You would agree that most of us would find it difficult to pull off an outdoor themed wedding in India with utmost elegance and class, but Shraddha and Sanket’s wedding shows how it’s done! With a color scheme playing as the main wedding theme,this intimate wedding is a complete twist to your typical and boring traditional wedding making it a fun fiesta instead. I absolutely love the rustic, warm and summery colors used in the mehendi & haldi ceremony and the contrasting vintage and modern feel of the wedding ceremony.Garden weddings are always a simple and chic way to be classy but with the details given in this wedding, it was not just classy but truly romantic.
Shraddha and Sanket decided on a color theme of peach and blue for their wedding day-quite an unusual color theme I must say! and boy did they execute it flawlessly! With a stunning pink mandap, blue chair caps and perfectly matched outfits in royal blue, this couple pulled off a dream wedding scene! There is something so romantic in all things vintage and rustic – like paper flowers and fairylights as used by this cute couple to liven up their wedding. Shraddha and Sanket made sure that their wedding was perfect, down to every last detail right from matching outfits to their engraved wedding rings. As I mentioned before, our bride Shraddha is a professional wedding photographer and her very own team from Dreamgrapher was there to take all the images and capture every moment of this dream wedding.
PERSONALIZING THE WEDDING
Shraddha always wanted an intimate wedding with close family and friends in attendance. When we asked her what was her favourite part of the wedding she told us it was to have her small gathering super excited to attend her wedding and actively be a part of the celebrations. She says, “Our wedding theme was an outdoor picnic, so everyone was invited a day before to stay at the resort in their own cottages and enjoy activities like nature walk by the river or bird watching. Some family members helped with the wedding decor and such other things. Everyone had a lovely time!”
DESIGNING THEIR OWN WEDDING ATTIRE
Believe it or not, this gutsy couple designed their own wedding attire! When it comes to day to day life, both Shraddha and Sanket have a bohemian style of dressing up. So for their wedding day, they did not want something that was not their personality. Moreover, they wanted outfits that made them look like a pair. Shraddha was clear from the beginning that she did not want to settle for regular bridal colors like red and pink nor a traditional pattern and style. She had a maharaja look in mind for Sanket. With all these elements in mind, Shraddha went shopping for her wedding attire. The couple visited many designer stores and boutiques but couldn’t find their dream wedding attire. So finally, they were left with no choice but to stitch their wedding outfit from a local tailor. The finalized on a design and got the tailor to stitch the design as per their brief!!! Now this is one creative couple!
Shraddha looks flawless as her make up artist Farin Jafri gets her ready for the big day. Didn’t you love their royal blue outfits? Love the rich velvet skirt with gold embroidery and absolutely love the contrast jacket! For her wedding jewels, Shraddha wanted something classic and timeless. She opted for a statement polki and pearls set from AK Zaveri. Gorgeous!!!
Wow! Simply stunning captures from the team of Dreamgrapher. The couple looks amazing in their matching outfits and the decor is spellbinding!
