Jeevika & Aryan got married in a beautiful ceremony, by the beach, surrounded by their closest of family and friends. A destination wedding in Goa, the couple chose to celebrate their union in the most fun manner possible. Jeevika wore very comfortable, yet stylish outfits for all her functions but it was her sage green bridal lehenga that was the best of them all. With a long trail, it had the princess vibes, but was light enough for Jeevika to enjoy her wedding without the hassle of an overweight lehenga! Aryan looked dashing too in his pastel pink sherwani and the couple looked ethereal on the wedding. The Picture Patch Photography captured this beautiful Goa wedding, documenting the couple's most adorable moments perfectly.
Meet Jeevika & Aryan
From The Bride:
We wanted to have a very small, intimate wedding surrounded by only the people we would like to meet in future. My 10 people wedding planning turned out to be 200 people wedding as per the small Indian wedding standards set by my parents. I also wanted it to be away from our homes, on a secluded beach so people could come, have a good weekend and get back to their lives. We looked at all the properties in Goa, but none of them allowed exchange of garlands on the beach sand! At the end of the day, I still wanted to be alone on a beach with my husband while exchanging the garland. Cidade had its own beach and just by paying for the beach license we got the permission to do the same. The pictures online don't justify how stunning this Portuguese property is! The only hiccup are the music hour rules in Goa for open spaces.
I once attended a wedding where the bride couldn't move and refused to move because her outfit was so heavy. I found that really silly. So I set out to find outfits that were relaxed and easy to wear. I didn't have any apprehensions like it needs to be a certain designer etc. I knew all of them need to be lite and somewhere, as weird as it might sound, I should look like I am also attending a function and not be an over bearing bride. I got Haldi outfits stitched. Wore Zara for my mehendi because its my favorite everyday brand. It kind of shocked everyone. But it was real. Designed my own Sangeet outfit. For which I had a Coachella look in mind. Free floating hippie. Wore Sabyasachi Lehenga that I picked in 3 minutes of going out to find my wedding lehenga. Had a custom made veil because I wanted it to be a surprise for my husband. And Got a custom made gown by Shivan And Narresh for my After party. Jewellery was mostly mom's, got a few things made and rest artificial. I had no pressure or stress from both sides of the family to be a certain way. So all the looks were exactly what I wanted. We ran out of time for our pool party but wore Swimwear we bought online. My heels were from all over based on comfort. Steve Madden to DKNY. I had multiple options. Mostly wore Jutis. On my last day, I wore a pure silk saree that my Mom and Sister in Law picked up for me.
