Abhay and Rithu
Abhay and Rithu choose to celebrate their unique backgrounds in two different wedding ceremony's - a dreamy Christian white wedding followed by a vibrant Punjabi wedding! A double toast to their beautiful relationship!
The theme for their Punjabi wedding was inspired by two phrases ‘Nature’ and ‘Indian Aesthetics’. Tamarind tree being the venue set the perfect stage for this, rooted in traditional Indian charm and the freshness of open spaces. Also this was not just a theme but an extension of life and personality for Monica (the grooms mother, a fashion designer & the mastermind behind this wedding) whose house and work all echoed this sentiment.
The invitations were crafted to reflect the colour themes of both the events with the motif of a parrot symbolising love and passion, perched on a branch of marigold flowers - evocative of the celebration of love alongside the splendour of nature! This was also beautifully incorporated into the design of the return gift boxes, the thoughtfully created airport kits and the decor itself! The celebrations started with a simple Mehendi ceremony, where the families gathered and socialised setting the stage for the grand Sangeet in the evening! The Sangeet decor was created to signify a coming together of a white wedding with a colourful Punjabi wedding! Blue and Teal being the colour of the night was accentuated with all florals being done only in white. Abhay and Rithu did a fantastic entry, dancing their way onto the stage and set the perfect vibe for an evening of performances, dance and fun!
The following day started with the very special and treasured Punjabi Chooda ceremony! The bride and groom both dressed in yellow, completely immersed themselves in the fun ritual! The setting for the evening wedding was done with marigolds, Kaleeras for a touch of Punjabi charm along with candles and lights adding a soft gleam. The mandap was created with real logs, rich orange drapes and a canopy of white floral strings and lights lending it a rustic and earthy feel, distinct and yet in perfect harmony with its surroundings. The ceremony started with the Baraat making its way to the tunes of the Punjabi Dhol, and what was special is that the bride joined in the dancing and celebrations, they exchanged their ‘Varamaala’ under a gorgeous Tamarind tree and finally tied the knot in a beautiful Arya Samaj wedding which truly had every guest encapsulated in emotion. We at Crimson and Cherry feel that this was a wedding with a soul and we thoroughly enjoyed the journey of designing and planning this wedding! Wishing this beautiful couple the very best life can offer!
