Meet Alisha & Naman
A planned date, two extremely eager friends and a match that was destined, Naman & Alisha's love story is as cute as it gets. Alisha writes, "Naman and I met through our common friends. They were a couple. The guy got Naman and the girl got me out for dinner. We exchanged our Snapchat ids and within a week we decided to spend our lives together. The rest is history."
From The Bride:
Our wedding was a sudden affair amidst covid. We never had a roka ceremony. We directly got engaged on 17th November in Taj and married on 18th march in Oberoi Trident Gurgaon. The wedding was a big fat one with enthusiastic performances, crazy wedding planners (Plush Events) and lots of emotions. The peculiar thing about the wedding was the Musical Pheras by Ankit Batra which was also the highlight of the wedding. It was a mini destination wedding in Gurgaon.
Venue: Oberoi Trident Gurgaon
The groom’s relatives and friends stayed in Oberoi’s and the bride’s relatives and friends stayed in Trident. All our ceremonies were held in Trident. The staff was extremely co-operative. The venue was a perfect example of mini Rajasthan weddings. It is beautiful with domes and pillars. Both the properties are well maintained, with great food, well planned covid safety measures and extremely friendly.
