About The Couple

Their Tale

Isha and Ronak met each other at a nightclub in Mumbai, striking a chord over one random topic and well, the two haven’t looked back ever since! It’s a classic tale of opposite attracts and that exactly is what makes the whole journey super interesting for them. They love completely different things but, heartily enjoy doing them together.

The Proposal

Ronak sure managed to take Isha by surprise and literally swept her off her feet! Isha was told that they are to attend Ronak’s sister’s baby shower as she was expecting and it sounded believable. Spilling the beans the bride further connotes, “When I entered the venue and saw him standing afar—his expression, humility, and love, it all hit me. The rooftop venue and decor was just the way I like it and the moment was finally here!
The way Ronak planned the proposal keeping my personality and likes in mind and at the same time also incorporating who he is, just left me stunned and impressed. His words made me want to say ‘yes’ immediately! It will always remain my most favorite part of our journey.”

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

This big fat Gujarati-Punjabi wedding hosted in Mumbai was an opulent affair curated in unmatched grandeur and an unparalleled style. The week long celebrations witnessed an effervescent blend of typical Gujarati and Punjabi cultures through multiple & distinctively themed revelries.

While Instagram and wedding blogs ideated the bride majorly and helped her build her wedding vision, the creative geniuses of Horizon Wie, FireFlies Decor, and Ajay Decorators breathed it all to life. They fashioned the ceremonies in a traditionally aesthetic yet modish way making everything feel larger than life.

Furthermore, it was the team of Sam and Ekta that captured all that magic & madness in timeless frames oozing with a life of their own.

Garba

After a weekend of an intimate Gurudwara wedding and a Unicorn-themed bridal shower, the celebrations officially kicked-off with a formal pre-wedding welcome dinner.

It was next day followed by a traditional Garba night at the Turf Club for which the decor was done in colorful hues, Indian prints, marigolds, and quirky elements like colorful umbrellas, earthen pots, tassels etc.

Isha's Garba Look

For this night of dancing and merry making, Isha slipped into a vivacious belted navy blue lehenga from Debyani & Co. that was replete with striking hand embroideries.

She accessorized her look with bangles and stunning polki, pearl, and multi-stone jewellery that took her traditional look a notch above. While makeup artist Pakkhi Pahuja gave her soft smokey eyes with a super nude lip, hairstylist Ritika Kadam gave her red flower accentuated side braids and left the rest of the mane open in gorgeous curls.

Ronak's Look

Ronak, on the other hand, went subtly colorful in his Shantanu & Nikhil ensemble that consisted of a white kurta & trousers along with a vividly colorful bandi.

The Mehndi Ceremony

Hosted at the Fariyas Hotel, the mehndi ceremony was a burst of hearty florals over sorbet-hued drapes and backdrops. The showstopper of the day was undoubtedly the jhoola bridal seating. Set up against an orange gota accentuated backdrop, the jhoola was completely decorated in yellow marigolds.

For the ceremony, Ronak donned an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla Ivory kurta and Nehru jacket set with hints of checkered red. Isha went frolicking about in a red printed Anita Dongre lehenga looking absolutely bewitching!

Ritika Kadam did Isha’s hair in a stunning tousled Dutch braid with infinity micro-braid detailing and ornamented it with whimsical butterflies and Baby’s Breath. Whereas, Varsha Gidwani gave her a flushed look with pale pink lips & blue eyelids.

Fresh floral jewellery from Floral Art by Srishti further added umpteens to her look making her look like an absolute vision.

'Floral Meets Royal' Wedding

Hosted at the Turf Club, the ‘floral meets royal’ dreamy pheras were a heartwarming medley of auspiciousness and love. Drenched in hues of elegant pinks and white, fragrant blooms, and traditionally antique elements, the entire space looked absolutely heavenly.

Isha's Wedding Look

For the pheras, Isha went all glimmering in a heavily embellished gold Sabyasachi lehenga and looked like a true royalty. Her elaborate polki & pearl jewels were an exquisite mix of a collar neckpiece, pretty jhumkas, matching head pieces, a meenakari rani-haar, and a dainty nath.

While Ritika tied up Isha’s hair in a neat bun bedecked in gypsies and carnations, Varsha gave her a flushed and highlighted look with soft gold eyes and a pretty lip.

Ronak's Wedding Look

Ronak went timelessly subdued with his wedding look in a light beige Anita Dongre sherwani marked with intricate gota patti work. He paired it up with a cream safa and looked remarkably handsome and crisp.

'Everything Silver' Sangeet

The Astor Ballroom at The St. Regis Mumbai was literally glammed up with everything blingy and sparkly. Themed ‘everything silver’, the space boasted of cascading shimmery strings, decor elements done in mirrors, lots of light, and an edgy black and white chevron patterned photo booth marked with their hashtag in LED.

Isha's Look

Dressing up in her doll like charm, Isha looked like she walked straight out of a Disney princess movie on the post-wedding sangeet night. She chose to slip into a nude-hued flamboyant Manish Malhotra lehenga that was laden with metallic sequins and embellishments.

A glorious diamond & pearl set with dainty earrings accentuated her look further while she went all glamorous with open wavy tresses along with Namrata Soni giving her a subtle lip and dramatic eyes.

Ronak's Look

Isha’s drool-worthy princessy look was dashingly complemented by Ronak looking absolutely dapper in his marsala cowled kurta & navy bandhgala jacket ensemble by Shantanu & Nikhil.
