About The Couple

Their Tale

Nikita and Aditya met each other in college in U.S when after graduation he moved back to Mumbai and she remained in Cincinnati, Ohio. After being in a long distance for over three years, Aditya surprised Nikita with a trip to Dubai where he proposed to her at sunset. The duo hosted their engagement party in November 2019 and decided to tie the knot a year later in Mumbai.

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

The couple got married in the middle of a pandemic in an Intimate ceremony of just 25 guests. Because their original wedding plans had fallen into a slump because of Covid-19, instead of postponing it further, they moved their wedding to Cincinnati from Mumbai with only two months left to the wedding date.

With the support of their families, the duo put together their wedding whilst adhering to the precautions, safety measures, and constant changes in government rules. While the bride’s haldi and mehendi were an at-home affair, their wedding was hosted at the Manor House.

The team of B3 Event was the perfect planning and decor ally that brought the couple’s vision to life while, Bambino International captured every bit of the magic in aesthetic frames.

Mehendi Ceremony

The mehendi at Nikita’s home was a hearty blend of colorful blooms accentuated with popping greens and candles while, an all-net and fairy light wall made for the bridal seating backdrop.

For the ceremony, Aditya went all vibrant and casual in a mint green kurta-pyjama set paired with a floral colorful bandi.

Nikita's Look

Nikita, on the other hand, was clad in pretty and vivid hues and lots of bling. She slipped into an Akanksha Gajria ensemble crafted in her signature colorful tie and dye print topped with embellishments and 3D floral motifs.

She paired up her outfit with elegant kundan jewels and went for open wavy hair along with naturally flushed makeup.

Haldi Ceremony

For her haldi, Nikita looked resplendent in a pretty yellow floral lehenga teamed up with an embroidered beige-gold blouse and matching dupatta.

She accessorized her outfit with yellow and green floral jewellery, tiara, and kaleeras while open hair, flushed cheeks, and a bright lip completed her look flawlessly.

The Wedding

The day wedding was a riot of white color topped with foliage and blooms in different hues of pink. From table settings and mandap base to guest seating and flowers, white played a stunning canvas to let other hues stand out aesthetically.

White and gold pearl strings, ornate bells, and traditional chairs further elevated the mandap setting to a tee.

Nikita's Wedding Look

Opting for a traditional bridal look with a twist, Nikita donned an embroidered deep red lehenga teamed up with a trailing second dupatta. Layered neckpieces with matching earrings and a matha-patti elevated her look further adding just the right tinch of royal vibes.

Nina Khan accentuated her look with a low-rise floral bun, gold dramatic eyes, and a bright red lip.

Aditya's Wedding Look

Aditya too, opted for a traditional groom look and wore a cream and gold sherwani, a dual-toned safa, and three-stringed emerald mala.

Tips From The Bride

My advice for other brides would be to not get caught up in details that won’t personally affect them on their wedding day. Caring about your outfit, clothes, hair, and makeup make sense. But there is no need to get so caught up in the details of food, music, centerpieces, etc. You won’t even think about those details on the wedding day!
