About The Couple

Their Tale

Priyanka and Mishaal met each other during their first year of University when a mutual friend brought Mishaal along to a party. The bride quotes, “We ran into each other a couple of times over the next few months before Mish finally struck up the courage to ask me out on a date. We had been dating for nearly 8 years before Mish finally proposed while holidaying in Positano on the Amalfi Coast of Italy.”

Mishaal had been planning the proposal for months but, it didn’t go as per the plan because of the weather conditions. But, without giving in to the situation he, like Priyanka says, “pulled some strings at the beautiful ‘Le Sirenuse’ hotel & made a private booking at their Champagne bar that night.”

He took her by surprise and finally popped the question leaving her stunned by all the thought and planning he had put into the entire proposal. And of course, she said yes!

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

Desiring a destination wedding, the duo started scouting the perfect location and ended up falling for Udaipur and its natural beauty & architectural history.

Priyanka and her family primarily planned the wedding themselves remotely and then got The Event Affairs on board for production & execution at the time of the wedding. While they managed the entire soiree and even did a fun and jazzed up decor for the sangeet night, Devika Narain & Company fashioned the wedding and reception decor whimsically and to a tee.

For how their day-time garden wedding was a blend of all things beautiful and dreamy, the team of WeddingNama capturing every bit aesthetically in timeless frames was the icing on the cake.

Welcome Cocktail Party

Priyanka and Mishaal kick-started their soiree with a groovy welcome cocktail party hosted at the Baro Masi Rooftop Bar. Overlooking the Lake Pichola and Udaipur’s ‘Old Town’ the evening was one of the most memorable events for their guests.

To frolic through the night, the duo went all casual in their comfy yet stylish ensembles. While Mishaal looked dapper in a navy blue and white suit from MJ Bale, Priyanka looked absolutely voguish in her white Zimmermann dress.

Open wavy tresses and bold red lips completed her look flawlessly!

The Haldi

Drenched in a vibrant jolt of colors under the Udaipur sun, the lawns of The LaLit Laxmi Vilas Palace looked like a sight to behold. While the bride and groom wore classic yellow and white outfits respectively, the decor boasted of pinks, greens, yellows, and oranges.

Tasseled marigold garlands, fabric dreamcatchers, multi-hued drapes, and a sit-down setup bedecked with colorful cushions and covers made the entire vibe a high-spirited one.

The Sangeet

The sunshining haldi ceremony was followed by a sundowner sangeet for which Mishaal was the most excited about ‘cuz he “tears up the dance floor” like he says!

Centered around the hues of blue, gold, beige, and yellow, the team of The Event Affairs created a dazzling setup. Huge canopied sitting areas along with round table settings surrounded the blue stage so that everybody could enjoy the event together.

Traditional Rajasthani dances and performances by the groom and the squads were all the fire that this bedazzling evening needed.

Priyanka's Look

For the ceremony, Priyanka slipped into a glimmering blush pink & gold Anushree Reddy lehenga fashioned in her statement craft. She accessorized her look with bangles and a pair of statement earrings from Amrapali.

While ace makeup artist Jasmeet Kapany gave her a naturally flushed and highlighted look, hairstylist Gaurav Chawla styled her hair with side braids and luscious open locks!

She later changed into a stunning printed Anarkali from Ekaya Banaras to shake a leg on the dance floor effortlessly!

Mishaal's Look

He teamed up his ensemble with embroidered navy blue shoes from Artimen.

Day-Time Pheras

The duo’s day wedding was a blissful amalgam of light pink & pale peach hues with pastel-colored blooms and lots of green with a pop of gold. The open lawns of the palatial property were bedecked surreally by Devika Narain & Company in an uber contemporary yet traditional way.

An all floral and foliage mandap amped up with traditional chairs and antique artifacts stood like a showstopper while, draped tiffany chairs under a roof of scalloped drapes made up for the guest seating.

Priyanka's Look

Priyanka, for the day, went all coordinating with the decor in her Ivory and pink Sabyasachi lehenga fashioned in a floral print and minimal embroideries. Her jewels were a fine blend of pieces like an elaborate bangle set, a polki and pearl choker set, and a matching maang-tikka from different jewellery couturiers like Jaipur Gems, Anita Dongre, and Tanishq.

While Gaurav Chawla did Priyanka’s hair in a wispy floral bun, Jasmeet Kapany gave her soft shimmery eyelids, a nude lip, and flushed cheeks while topping it all off with a red bindi.
