Meet Zahra & Muf
The Spanish Fiesta
The ReceptionFrom The Bride: "It happened by chance. We originally wanted to get married in Jaipur but the hotel could not accommodate us and the second option was Chennai and the moment we walked in, we loved the Leela Palace there, it's quite a Modern Day Palace. The festivities kicked off with a welcome Mehendi lunch which had traditional décor with vibrant pink, orange and green while the cocktail evening had an English rustic theme with hints of pink. Twigs, branches and birds hanging cages were well incorporated in the decor. Local acoustic band ensured everybody was grooving till the wee hours. F5 weddings, my planners had these suave and outrageously talented bartenders fly down from Dubai who kept most guests glued to the bar with their crafty cocktails. The second day witnessed a Spanish themed brunch titled Viva La Fiesta. Ladies were welcomed with floral tiara and hats for men. We entered on a colorful tri-cycle. Plenty of games and activities like live Jenga, ring toss, beer pongs and colorful photo booths with kept the guests engaged and most of them seemed to have revived their childhood. And after all the morning fiesta-ness the evening Sangeet was full of power performances. A huge 40 feet stage with 1000 bulbs was created with a walkway with 10000 roses. And finally, the Nikaah was celebrated in one of Leela's best venues, the Chess Garden. All guests were received with rose water showers and jasmine bracelets. Reception was an all white décor with lots of toasts and speeches from family," explains Zahra.
