Hello, ladies! This time we are here to share with you the captivating reception for Ratika & Rahul that was hosted in the fascinating The Guild Inn Estate. This wedding reception was like no other. The combination of colors and the exceptional floral decoration that Karma Design Studio put together for this ceremony has helped make this event elegant, but delicate and exquisite. It was the perfect complement to set the mood for this solemn and memorable event. Devika Arora and The Sapphire Hut Costume Jewelry created dreamy makeup, a classic hairstyle, and a stunning saree that were all a perfect combination to enhance Ratika's beauty.  This was a night to remember, and thanks to Darkroom Doctors Studios, who created mesmerizing scenes that our lovebirds can share with their children and grandchildren one day! The exceptional DJ from DJ KSquare played the most beautiful melody to set the perfect mood for this dance. All the attendants were delightfully watching how the newlyweds, Ratika & Rahul, moved to the beat of the most beautiful melodies, while the elegant chandelier provided the perfect spotlight to enhance this romantic, luxurious, and amazing scenery. Along with the Lipica & Madhvi, Bollywood Performers & Instructors created the perfect performance that will amaze every spectator. We are very glad to know that we can always relieve this everlasting love story by checking out the amazing video that we prepared for today!

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.
Planning a wedding amidst a pandemic was definitely a challenge! Having my husband (my fiancé at the end) help me every step of the way made the process a lot easier and pleasant. We did explore several different vendors, but we are truly grateful for the individuals that we ultimately chose to work with. They truly made our wedding so memorable and gave us memories that we will cherish for life. Brides, just remember that have a vision and communicate that very clearly with your vendors. They will try their best to make your dream develop into reality.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew from the start that I wanted a maroon velvet lehenga. So... that part definitely made it a little easier for me to filter out some options. I did not have a particular style or embroidery in mind. After visiting several stores, I was able to find a lehenga that immediately stood out to me (in terms of the embroidery, patterning, etc.) however it was in the colour green. The vendors were very kind and so professional and promised me to replicate the same style of wedding dress but in my choice of colour and fabric, and so they did! It turned out exactly how I had envisioned it.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
It was definitely very enjoyable to spend each moment with my husband planning the event. He helped me every step of the way. We also got the opportunity to meet several very humble and professional vendors in the industry which was absolutely delightful.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
We were praised for the organization and the level of details we put towards making the wedding week a memorable for all. The guests absolutely loved the sangeet which was essentially like a pre-reception. Due to the pandemic, we had to make the hard decision of cancelling our reception. Nevertheless, we wanted to fulfill everything that we wanted in a reception to take place at the sangeet. We had family performances, speeches, our friend who sang us some beaitiful Bollywood songs, a fantastic DJ and a great MC hosting our event. What else could we ask for.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The ceremony! Those vows, the pandit ji sharing his words of wisdom, our loved ones sitting right across from us and blessing us with their presence, our parents holding our hands every step of the way. EVERYTHING!

We hope that you have enjoyed this journey as much as we have! Remember to stay close for more!
