We came across Poorva’s bridal look on Instagram and fell in love with it instantly. We knew that her whole wedding would be a sight to behold! And so it was! Poorva and Prateek’s story is 10 years in the making and here’s how their beautiful wedding unfolded.
Day 1: Haldi + Mehendi
The whole wedding was planned over a span of 2 days. The first day morning was the haldi and mehendi function with a theme of yellow and pink, and as you can see people followed it like crazy! Prateek’s family is Rajasthani so there was folk singing and Rajasthani lunch to give bride’s Punjabi side a taste of the groom’s family’s heritage! There were no anchors or planned out activities at this time so the families could mix up and have a great time with each other at their own pace! What a perfect start to a beautiful 2-state story!
Poorva opted for a gorgeous yellow color lehenga with mirror work for her first event along with a contrasting pink dupatta. She carried her outfit off with a floral side braid and subtle yet shimmery makeup. What we loved the most is how her groom complimented her perfectly in a floral printed kurta with a bright yellow jacket on the top!
Sangeet + Engagement:
After the morning function, both families geared up for the sangeet and engagement party at night. And while the morning was all Rajasthani, the evening was all about embracing the bride’s Punjabi side. There were no anchors and the introduction part was done by friends and family! – which we feel is an amazing idea. Poorva sizzled in an all-red ensemble with a traditional paasa on the side. Her MUA Rashi did a great job with makeup – we are crushing hard on the smokey purple eye makeup! Prateek, on the other hand, wore an all-black suit for the night. What a classic red-black coordination!
Day 2: Wedding
The next day morning was the wedding day! Poorva made heads turn on her D-Day. Wearing an intricately embroidered ivory lehenga, she excellently coordinated her outfit with some stunning kundan jewelry. Her MUA Rashi again was at her best and gave the bride a blush pink look perfect for her day wedding! The groom wore a dusty pink sherwani for the ceremony. And with the aesthetic backdrop of the Alwar Haveli, these two tied the knot for their happily ever after!
Ending their destination wedding was a starry reception night full of happy vibes! After all the hustle and bustle of the wedding shenanigans, everyone including the bride and groom enjoyed their special day to the fullest!
Well, that wasn’t it for Poorva and Prateek!
Paris Honeymoon Shoot:
Prateek planned a romantic photoshoot for the couple in the city of love – ‘Paris’. We are swooning over this affectionate honeymoon shoot. It perfectly captured the ‘just married’ vibes and in the bride’s own words, she got compliments saying ‘This is vogue material’ – and we couldn’t agree more!
We would highly recommend a honeymoon shoot – just hire a local photographer and take out an hour or two from your day. You will capture the memories that you will cherish forever!
