Meet Sheeba & Nasar
Sheeba recounts: "Nasar & I met through my sister Shaina who was friends with him from before. He being an RJ was used to girls swooning over him, but when I gave him a curt "Hi" and continued to work on my laptop, it threw him off his game a bit. He was intrigued and destiny had something else in mind and after we hung out a couple of times, something clicked and there were fireworks. We became friends first and I was his emotional anchor for the longest time. And after a lot of back & forth, we decided to spend our lives with each other. Even though we are as different as chalk and cheese, we sort of complement & complete each other" explains Sheeba enthusiastically.
"Royal. Classic. Elegant. Three words that would describe my vision for our wedding. Right from the venue, to the decor to the clothes we wore - I was sure I wanted everything to have an old world charm to it. Right from the vintage cars and elephants, to using pyros for my entrance, to having fireworks & a chandelier cake, everything had that special touch. So even the functions had themes that personified it. The Mehendi had a vintage floral French Riviera theme and the Sangeet brought alive the 1920's through the Great Gatsby theme" "I'm a control freak and I was micromanaging everything! So much so that even while I was getting ready for functions, I was coordinating with my friends , my family, the decor guy, the hotel staff, everyone! A true Bridezilla. Lol! As a bride, I always saw myself getting married like a princess - making a grand entry, wearing classic jewellery and clothes, wanting to look extremely royal and graceful! My style I would say was exactly that. So, while for the mehendi, I wore an understated yet stylish mint anarkali gown with floral jewellery, for the Sangeet, I glammed it up in true Gatsby style - wearing the Gatsby headband and an indo-western gown with an extremely long train (which had to be tied up later coz I was dancing so much)," says Sheeba. For the for the wedding, I wore a very heavy traditional red lehenga with two dupattas in shades of orange. I topped it with a heavy mathapatti, nath, heavy jewellery, kadas and what not - basically everything that screamed 'here comes a princess' . I wanted my wedding to look timeless! I wanted it to be an event which our future generations would identify with; I wanted it to have a feel that anyone could identify with, and touchwood, It was just perfect," adds Sheeba.
