Happy Friday, beauty queens! It is time to start getting ready for the weekend, and what better way to d it than taking a look at a magical love story that seems taken from the pages of a fairytale. So, get ready to dive into this fabulous wedding celebration that will take us to the mesmerizing landscapes of Los Cabos, Mexico. You heard right, we are taking a trip to Mexico, and more specifically to the Paradisus Los Cabos, where all wedding ceremonies and events took place. Right off the bat, we have to say that our lovebirds couldn't have asked for a more romantic and captivating backdrop to unite their lives in marriage. When we laid our eyes on the jaw-dropping shots captured by Biyani Photography, it almost felt like if we were daydreaming, and we immediately knew that this one of a kind love story, and we needed to share it with you! The romantic and heavenly wedding ceremony took place at noon, and oh boy, it was a dream come true! Having a beautiful clear sky and the endless sea as the backdrop for this long-awaited moment where Saakshi & Indy swore eternal love to each other, rendered us speechless! Thanks to the good friends from Electric Karma International and Del Cabo Weddings, there was so much beauty to admire inside the wedding venue. They planned everything down to the smallest detail and mirrored the beauty of our gorgeous couple, designing the sweetest and most charming decor that we have seen in quite a while! The soft-pasteli hues that contrasted to perfection with the natural backgrounds and the outfits Anita Dongre designed for this young couple were the perfect choice to set the mood for this wedding ceremony! Although they both looked ravishing, it was our lovely Saakshi who stole the show throughout the entire wedding festivities thanks to her drop-dead gorgeous look! So, kudos to Suzanne Morel Face and Body Care, who took care of her beauty needs and Los Cabos Entertainment Company, who outlined a fabulous Mehndi design, adding an extra touch of traditional flair to Saakshi's marvelous look! We cannot stress how much we loved this magical wedding ceremony, as it feels like a breath of fresh air during these unprecedented times. If you are like us and can't get enough of this lovely couple during their wedding, you can't miss the spectacular gallery that we have prepared for today. It overflows with so much beauty that will brighten up your day, and will melt your heart with joy!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
During my fourth year of dental school, Indy and I planned an impromptu trip to Paris. I spent a lot of time planning out the whole trip with Indy, little did I know he already had it all planned out! Our first morning in Paris, we went to Montmartre, my favorite part of Paris. It was a bit of a gloomy morning but Indy insisted we go anyway. Once we were there, Indy proposed in a garden in front of The Wall of Love and had a photographer waiting there to capture the moment! She captured the entire proposal as well as the snow flurries that begun falling immediately after he proposed! We spent the next 5 days enjoying everything that Paris has to offer.
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
I could not have planned this wedding without the help of our wedding planner, Therese (Electric Karma), and our families! It truly was a team effort with each member of our family playing a big part. After visiting Cabo with my parents and Therese, we immediately chose Paradisus Los Cabos as our venue. Once the venue was in place, Therese guided us in picking all of the vendors, most of which she knew personally. We got lucky with the most incredible group of vendors who we worked with closely over the course of one year to plan all of the details.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was the amount of time that Indy and I spent talking to our parents and sisters and bouncing ideas off each other throughout the year. I felt that both of our families really bonded through the wedding planning process. The brunches, family "meetings" and phone calls made the planning process fun! Especially because Indy and I lived in New York and Boston, respectively, for half of the planning process, so it was nice being in touch with our family in Texas.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The guests loved how much detail went around planning four days of events. It is very rare for an Indian wedding to stick to a schedule, but we were able to make it work! We had our wedding in Cabo San Lucas at the Paradisus Los Cabos resort, a relatively small resort which means our wedding took over the majority of rooms with all ~240 guests staying there. We had beautiful weather the whole week and Cabo is such a breathtaking place to spend time with friends and family before getting married! Everyone was in vacation-mode and had plenty of energy for the four days of fun that we had planned! Guests also had plenty of time each day to enjoy the resort, beach and the town since we had the Sangeet, Wedding Ceremony, and Reception each on a separate day.
Everyone also loved the food! The resort had a variety of great sit-down restaurants and we were lucky to have Chef Gaurav Anand fly in from New York City to cater our wedding! He curated a wonderful menu of Indian, Mexican, and International dishes for the Sangeet, Wedding Day, Cocktail hour and Reception. He put together an incredible plated Indian dinner for our reception which was the one thing I really wanted all along!!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I just keep dreaming about the whole week of countless amazing memories! We truly had the best week of our lives in paradise with all of our family and friends. We're already planning a reunion trip!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
There are so many aspects to planning a wedding that I never even thought of before this whole process. Having a knowledgable wedding planner, such as Therese, who has done this almost 1,000 times (literally!) really helped us achieve everything we wanted! Without her knowledge and experience, we would have been overwhelmed, especially since we chose to do a destination wedding.
