From a glitzy Gatsby-themed sangeet to a serene beachside wedding, this couple’s union was an enchanting celebration.
With one spectacular event following the other, Shruti Dasani and Dhruv Ranka’s beachside wedding in Chennai was a celebration that finely balanced modern as well as traditional aesthetics. Planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – Weddingz By Mindz, this wedding aced at every front!
Akansh Jain and Himanshu Kohli from Weddingz By Mindz share, “The wedding was planned over many meetings with the groom. Dhruv was highly involved in every aspect of the wedding, from the décor theme selection to the artist selection. The couple was clear from the start to have a unique wedding for all their guests, and he wanted to make sure everyone travelling is made comfortable and has a memorable experience.”
Himanshu shares, “The pastel-hued Mehendi and Welcome Lunch was hosted at the Pelican Deck and the Swimming Deck. The couple entered with colour bombs and to the beats of the dhol. There were different game stalls to engage the guests and a DJ ensured that everyone was grooving through it all!”
Akansh shares, “At the sangeet, the glamour and fun levels were amplified. Hosted indoors, we transformed the venue with amazing Digital Gatsby-themed decor. There were installations at the entrance, the pathway, the bar, the ceiling and even on the stage. Live bands and energetic performances set the stage on fire!”
Haldi and Lunch
Himanshu shares, “Haldi was an intimate event by the sunken deck with marigold décor. The couple sat in the urlis and got their traditional haldi as well as the phoolon ki holi with a live dhol artist. This was followed by a traditional South Indian-style lunch at the banquet hall. The welcome was a grand one with Mellam drummers and Kathakali artists.”
Wedding and Reception
Akansh shares, “The Jain wedding commenced with an energetic baraat with twenty dholwalas. The baraat lasted for almost two hours. The groom entered in a royal manner with an ornate umbrella and dancers taking him to the varmala stage, whereas the bride entered under a floral chaddar with dancers holding diya props paving her way to the stage.
After the wedding ceremony, the couple quickly changed their outfits and entered the reception stage with cold pyros.”
