Puja and Adityo’s dreamy destination wedding in Udaipur, set in a rustic palace perched high among the Aravalli mountains, is full of beauty, love, and culture. With breathtaking views of Lake Pichola and the city of romance, Udaipur, there couldn’t be a more perfect backdrop to celebrate the coming together of two friends and lovers as they begin the next chapter of their journey together.
Organized in less than six months, we loved Puja and Adityo’s simple and minimalist approach to their wedding planning. With only 50 guests at the two-day event, the celebrations started with the Mehendi where guests were treated to traditional Rajasthani performances and mouth-watering local delicacies as they danced the night away under the moonlight. The Wedding Ceremony was ethereal with the rituals taking place in the open air on the highest rooftop of the palace and overlooking the stunning city of Udaipur. The highlight, of course, was the bride and groom and their impeccable style and curated looks. Puja looked every bit the Modern Rajasthani Princess at the wedding in her pearl-white Anita Dongre lehenga and Kundan jewelry set including a statement multi-stranded matha patti. Luckily for us, photographers One for the Book beautifully captured the romance and beauty with stunning images that will give us plenty to daydream about! P.S. Look out for the breathtaking post-wedding photoshoot in Jaipur!
We spoke with Puja to understand her vision for the wedding and her top tips for brides wanting to have a stress-free destination wedding.
About The Couple
How we met
Adityo and I met in high school and quickly became best friends. As our friendship evolved, so did our feelings for one another. After spending some time as a couple, we knew we wanted to get married and pursue a lifetime of happiness in each other’s company.
How we are as a couple
We almost never disagree. Most of our friends would say they haven’t seen us argue; it’s true when we’re alone as well. When we do have a falling out, it lasts a matter of minutes because we’re so anxious to patch things up and enjoy our time together.
How he proposed
On a sunny day, in an outdoor setting surrounded by mountains, flowers and Chihuly glass sculptures. He really knows how to make me feel special.
The engagement ring
I knew I wanted a unique ring which I would cherish forever. I left it up to Adi to make the final call since he has impeccable taste. Lucky for me, he choose my favourite shape, a pear and personalised the band with the help of a jeweller. I receive compliments every time I wear it.
What marriage means to us
Love is the foundation upon which we are building our marriage. Our marriage is a partnership in which we encourage each other to be the best version of ourselves. The more we give, the more we get.
