About The Couple

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

Hosted at Waldorf Astoria, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, Freshta and Sagar’s destination wedding was all things beautiful and fairytale-ish. Desiring a soiree that was surreal and boasted of elements inspired by Cinderella’s story, Freshta got the talented team of Vidira Concept on board and boy what a match they were for her wedding vision.

While they planned and designed the duo’s dream wedding with the world’s magic, the team of Imprint Wedding captured every bit of this extravagance in time and aesthetic frames. The two teams together made sure that as much of an experience worth reveling in it was for the guests, it remained a virtual treat to the eyes even later on. And that too, right in the middle of a pandemic whilst, adhering to all the safety protocols and precautions.

The Mehendi-Sangeet

A riot of hues like turquoise, royal blue, peacock green, ultraviolet, peach, magenta, and gold, the Peacock-themed mehendi ceremony was the prettiest of all. Set up at the resort’s Peacock Alley, the all floral couple seating sure was the highlight of the decor. While life-size peacock installations completed the mandap-like setting clad in hefty blooms and lush greens, the guest seating was voguish as ever.

The table settings were decked up in peach drapes, floral centerpieces highlighted with peacock feathers, candles, and elegant tableware. Thoughtfully planned elements like peacock napkin rings and chair decorations following a peacock tail’s natural flow added that extra oomph to it all.

Whereas, movie posters on easels with the couple’s faces morphed onto them made for the entrance.

Couple Looks

For the event, while Sagar looked dapper in an asymmetrical-hemmed grey and gold sherwani teamed up with a dark green velvet stole, Freshta slipped into a bottle green lehenga laden with gold sequin embroideries.

She accessorized her outfit with a choker set and a matching maang-tikka while, a big hair bun, bold smokey eyes, and nude brown lips completed her look flawlessly.

The Haldi

Hosted indoors in the resort’s ballroom, the yellow-hued haldi ceremony was a super traditional event with everybody dressed in yellow and white. A floral wreath crafted with blooms in hues of yellow, peach, orange, different tones of reds, and pinks made up for a popping contrast to all the yellow.

The couple too, went coordinating with the theme and looked stunning in their outfits. While Sagar donned a yellow and white kurta-pyjama, Freshta slipped into a yellow and green belted churidaar suit. She opted for simplistic marigold kadas and a maang-tikka for her jewellery and left her hair open in waves.

The Wedding Reception

Freshta got her own little fairytale for her big day and exactly how she always wanted. Themed around Cinderella, each and every element was pieced together to bring out the essence of the fantasy world in the most opulent manner. The entire decor setup boasted of giant structures decked up in white drapes, pastel-hued and white blooms, foliage, and chandeliers.

While an acrylic aisle led to the all floral couple stage, the dance stage was a marvel to look at. Classy gold tables with mirrored tops and rose gold chairs, candles, and crystal strings further added to the theme of the ceremony and took it all a notch above.

Couple Looks

In sync with the fairytale theme, the couple looked like true royalties in their outfits. Since, the theme was Cinderella, Freshta knew her gown ought to have a mammoth flare to it. She got herself custom-made a heavily embellished white ball gown with a matching veil and a tiara.

A neat hair updo, soft shimmery eyes, pale lips, and big drop-shaped studs stitched up her look to a tee. Sagar, on the other hand, looked all princely in his white and black tuxedo.

Unique Details

Of all the things that made the theme as surreal as it was, what added that extra pinch of magic was the bride’s entry in a floral chariot. To further add to the bride’s dream, the planners Vidira Concept suggested that the groom slips on the other shoe into his bride’s feet and they then enter the venue towards their new beginning.

The Wedding Cake

For Freshta’s fascination with castles and making up for an essential element to the theme, what worked as a finishing touch to it all was the castle cake. And boy, what a showstopper it was!
