Whimsical Beach Soiree With Pastel Outfits Alongside A City Hall Wedding!
BY Latha Sunadh | 10 Jul, 2018
A pretty Goa wedding with all the fixings - this pretty wedding is all about style and substance. From a fun Haldi to the pool party Mehendi to two weddings, one at City hall and one Indian one with a mandap - this wedding had so many functions and we're reeling from the gorgeousness. First, due credits must be given to the bride's fun outfits - a sexy cocktail gown at the Sangeet and the pastel pink lehenga at the wedding alongside the prettiest white dress we ever saw. A dress for every mood, innit? The decor was minimalistic and the mandap on the beach at Caravela Beach Resort was as pretty as they come. Photography by Dhanika Choksi Photography and Debasis Rout was stunning!
Meet Diksha & Kongposh
"We met in the first grade - we were partners, shared our tiffins on day one, who knew back then that we'd end up sharing our lives! Do you know what 22 years of love looks like? It's being married to your soulmate and your best friend all in one. You shout, you love, you fight, but it’s a kind of love only you two know and understand" explains Diksha.
The City Hall Wedding & Reception
From The Bride:
Amrit Kaur, my MUA is exceptional at her work, definitely one of the best make up artists out there. Dhanika Choksi and team, my photographers were a pleasure to work. They hung out with us like friends and there wasn't a moment when Kongposh and I weren't comfortable in front of the camera. Debasis is exceptional with videos and Dhanika with pictures. I highly recommend this team. Riya Garodia was my wedding lehenga designer. My mom met her at an exhibition and showed me some of her outfits over a video call and I fell in love with them right away. It was a big deal for me to place my lehenga order with her and I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. It didn't burn a hole in my pocket and every guest at the wedding said I made the prettiest bride they'd seen - and I'd like to credit that to Riya!
The wedding was like a dream come true and more. Initially we felt a little stumped as to how everything was going to fall into place with so much going on, at the same time. But thanks to our parents and my bhaiya and bhabhi, everything went off without a hitch. Seeing Kongu become my husband from my boyfriend was an overwhelming change. The way he was with my family, the way he cared about everyone and made everyone feel comfortable, just warms my heart. We had wanted this for so long, and now that it has finally happened, it just seems perfect. Everyday that we’ve spent together has just been the part
of a beautiful, yet crazy journey. We’ve known each other 22 years and dated for 8 years and this wedding just made me fall in love with him all over again.
