Description of Sukhraaj & Harveer’s Wedding Weekend
The bride, Sukhraaj, had envisioned a fairytale wedding ever since she could remember. She was ecstatic to begin planning her special day two years ago, after the love of her life went down on one knee asking for her hand in marriage. To get the ball rolling, she consulted a graphic designer to help her create a wedding card that would truly stand out. The wedding card beautifully illustrated well thought out themes for each of her events leading up to her reception.
The first event, the Mehendi, took place with her beautiful backyard of a large forest, serving as a backdrop for her “Enchanted Forest” theme. The bride-to-be sat on jhoola while getting mehendi done and enjoying beautiful Bollywood music with friends and family.
The second event, the Sangeet, took place at a local park. The outdoor touch coupled with a horse and carriage entrance painted a truly magical picture. The Sangeet saw an explosion of colours and dancing that saw an escalating party atmosphere in anticipation of the weekend.
The final pre-event was the Maiyaan and Choora. The Maiyaan was a chance to laugh and let loose before tomorrow’s wedding ceremony. The event was capped off with a friendly water fight among the cousins and the bride.
On the day of Canada’s 150th year anniversary, Sukhraaj and Harveer would be united under the one true God at the Golden Triangle Sikh Association in Peterborough, Ontario. The snacks and lunch were served outdoor in a tent, on the beautiful sunny day. The ceremony itself was indoors with the floor layered in all white to help the glowing cherry blossoms truly stand out, adding a delicate touch. The event was capped off with treats for all the guests, courtesy of an ice cream truck playing its characteristic melody.
The week of festivities was down to the last day, the reception, which took place at Apollo Convention Centre. This night featured a “Twilight Romance” theme elegantly portrayed by the castle backdrop, featuring balconies with cascading greenery. The bride ventured away from the traditional Indian attire, and wore a beautiful flowy gown truly reflective of a princess. Guests entered the hall and were served cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, fresh sushi and enjoyed contemporary jazz music.
The party was kickstarted by the couple’s entrance, followed by a truly memorable choreographed first dance. The bride also joined the girls performance as the first of many surprises. Once the dance floor opened, the electricity could be felt all night. The second surprise saw beloved Disney characters accompany the bride and groom, and dhol players on stage to amp up the crowd. The couple also sprayed the crowd with CO2 gas before joining the DJ on the turntables. The atmosphere even had the police on duty dancing. “Best Party Ever” was among the most common sentiment mentioned that night!
Simply gorgeous! We'll be back on Monday with another fabulous wedding!
