If these two look familiar then that's probably because you spotted them in the recent Wedding Filmer video which we termed as the romantic comedy of the year ! You saw the video, now take a look at all the pretty details captured by Pooja Joseph Photography. Take out your notepads because this wedding is choc-a-block with ideas to plan your own ! Right from having a musical housie night (Tambola but with songs on your ticket instead of numbers !), to cute customised details ( that robe is a must have) , from "dessert in a jar" after sangeet to entering amidst a path of fireworks , from personalised water bottles to having popcorn and narayal pani stands - this wedding spells FUN like no other
Meet Radhika and Vishal
They first met each other through Radhikas best friend, they added each other on MSN and the rest as they say is history (or well, you can get a detailed version of that in the video).
The Garba Night & Mehendi
Love the customised stationary and that sign saying "Our love story is my favourite" . The bicycle by the way is the logo for the wedding and you shall spot it at all the events!
The Pool Party
Narayal Pani stands , Tug of war games, Popcorn with customised containers and caricature artists . Yes please !!!
Every bride needs a bathrobe like that!
Those jaimalas are the prettiest we have seen to date !!
From the bride: We had only 26 days to plan the whole thing, but Vishal and I always had a vision of how each event should look like . Right from the Garba night which was a full out carnival , to a traditional wedding with genda flower decor, to a fancy sangeet and a classy reception- all the credit goes to Riddhiben (my sister in law) for making our dreams a reality We always wanted a logo for our wedding but we couldn't agree on anything until one day Vishal called me to check my email. There it was- a bicycle with a bunch of colorful balloons attached to it and I fell in love with it. We wanted personalised everything and the logo featured prominently everywhere. It started with our save the date which was a full on DIY project, to personalised fridge magnet "TO DO LIST", personalised stickers on water bottles, personalised silver coins and more !!! In terms of unique ideas- well there were definitely some different things we tried at the wedding. We had a musical housie night, a UV party (crazy party with lots of UV lights and details and LED hairbands etc ), dessert in a jar after the sangeet, personalised mint boxes and chocolate wrappers and a few other details. Our pool party was a ton of fun with popcorn carts, narayan pani stands , flying balloons , a tug of war games and lots of other fun stuff so that people could relax and chill. Vishal and I both did not want over the top wedding outfits. My phera saree was hand woven - its a traditional amdavadi saree and then my mom added her sparkle to it In terms of people who did great work: Ekta(ESI) and her team were working non stop to make sure everything was flawless (which it was) .The word 'no' was just not there in their vocabulary . Apart from them , ofcourse the staff at Aamby valley, the team at The Wedding Filmer and everyone else involved in the wedding really! Pooja Joseph is not a photographer to us as she has become a part of our family . Her dedication to get that perfect shot is mind-blowing. She was shooting from morning 8am to mid night 2:30am with a smile on her face all the time.
