How amazing would it be if you got married to your childhood friend? Ask Krupa & Ruchit, because this is exactly what they did! The couple have known each other since forever and when they decided to get married, it was no less than a grand celebration of life and love. We loved the #RuGotHisKru and the entire festivities were planned to perfection by Kkings Events and Swaaha Wedding Management Co . Whether it was the functions in Mumbai, or the ones in Abu Dhabi, these guys did an amazing job at everything, from decor to planning to execution. Krupa looked absolutely ethereal in her bridal lehenga and the photography by Reelsandframes was just picture-perfect.

Krupa tells us how they met and realised they were perfect for each other, "Ruchit and I have been childhood friends. Growing up together helped us witness each other’s journey very closely. In between hanging out with our mutual friends and having fun, both of us very organically grew fond of each other but we did not convert our liking into a relationship at that time. Our bond bloomed further when we traveled to London for our studies. Both of us went to Berkeley and that's when Ruchit popped the question. I could not help but say 'Yes!' because this is what both of us had been rooting for all along!"
From The Bride:
If I have to describe my vision for my big day, it would be to have the ultimate 'Big, Fat Indian Wedding.' I always wanted the kind of wedding that my family and friends would experience only once in their lifetime. Both Ruchit and I wanted a mix of a palace and a beach wedding and have the best of both worlds! We held our cocktail party in Aamby Valley, and the 'Kankorti Lakhvanu' and sangeet at Blue Sea Banquets and Dome @ NSCI in Mumbai. All the other wedding ceremonies took place at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi.
We had two teams, Kkings Events and Swaaha Wedding Management Co who helped plan our wedding, and collaborating with them was an amazing experience. Both made sure that everything ran as smoothly as possible. KKings Events also organized a special bridal shower which was truly spectacular. Reelsandframes who were our wedding photographers also shot our pre-wedding photos and clicked some fabulous frames despite the extreme weather conditions. Our wedding favors were crafted by Izhaar by Core Designs . Their ideas and execution was flawless. All the teams that we worked with were very accommodating of our requests.”
