How They Met
The Mumbai-based couple was introduced to each other by their mothers. The two ladies first met each other through a mutual friend and quickly became close. Before long, they realized that they both were looking for the perfect partner for their oldest children. After an exchange of numbers, Sanket kicked off the conversation with Vrusti, and from there on, there was no looking back. Messages soon turned into hours of non-stop chatting on the phone as they bonded over shared values and life goals. Eventually, they got the opportunity to meet in person in London, and it only took that one date to know without a doubt that they had found their soulmates in each other.
The couple’s big, fabulous Indian wedding consisted of 10 joyous events, spanning 10 days and multiple venues in Mumbai. The Grand Ballroom at ITC Maratha played host to the spectacular sangeet, while JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar was the setting for the beguiling wedding. The expansive grounds of the Royal Western India Turf Club in Mahalaxmi provided perfect backdrops for the grand reception. The rest of the functions were held at the Courtyard by Marriott Mumbai International Airport.
The team of VV Weddings was entrusted to plan and execute the magnificent festivities. The bride shares, “Our experience with them from the very start to the finish was absolutely flawless. They seamlessly integrated with our vision, our family, and our events and executed them in a manner that was beyond our expectations.”
The couple chose the talented team of The Wedding Salad. Blending into the festivities of all t0 functions, they captured each fleeting moment in gorgeous frames, freezing them for the couple and their families to enjoy for all eternity. National decorators executed the stunning setups for the sangeet and the wedding, and the bespoke outfits for the bride and groom were created by Smithasha.
The wedding festivities were held at the beautiful property of JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar. Soft, floral décor in hues of pink set a romantic tone for the occasion, with beguiling structures of blooms encompassing the space. The groom looked regal in his ivory sherwani with intricate embroidery in blush pink, which he teamed with stunning accessories. The bride glowed in a traditional bridal red ensemble as they took their nuptial vows. Soulful chants by Ameya Dabli cast a mesmerizing serenity over the nuptials as the couple vowed to be soulmates for life.
The last and biggest function of the wedding was the reception that was held at the sprawling Royal Western India Turf Club in Mahalaxmi. The highlight of this function was the decor that included a gigantic ombre wall of pink blooms and towering circular columns of white flowers. The groom looked dapper in a tuxedo by Troy Costa, while the bride looked sensational in a wine-colored embellished gown.
