Suruchi and Rishab got married in Thailand on February 20, 2010.
Suruchi talks about her tropical theme wedding and whimsical winter
wonderland reception at the Holiday Inn Resort Regent Beach Cha-am.
We are both 26 and live in Nashville, TN where Rishab works as a
corporate lawyer. Before marriage I worked as a teacher in New York.
We were introduced to each other by family members, and after talking
a lot on phone we began meeting once a month. After sometime, Rishab
surprised me in Paris with a romantic proposal under the Eiffel Tower.
Wedding Colors and Planners
We decided to get married in Thailand and Gem Weddings, a Thailand
based company managed it all. The festivities began with a Thai
festival with an ethnic Thai ambience. This was followed by a colorful
Sangeet. For the tropical theme wedding ceremony, the mandap was
placed near the beach. The colours were fuschia and apple greens. The
finale was the grand reception. The hall looked like a whimsical
winter wonderland in Thailand. The colors were shades of aqua, violets
and bright whites. The stage was decorated with white trees adorned
with hanging crystals for a glittering effect.
Wedding Day Look
At the beach-side wedding there were very bold tropical colors all
around us, so I chose an equally bold color-- a hot pink lehenga with
pearl embroidery designed by Ritu Seksaria. I teamed this with Pearl
Jewellery and my makeup and hair was done in a very traditional style.
Rishab wore gold and dark brown sherwani with Pearl embroidery. For
the reception I wore a bottle green Tarun Tahiliani lehenga and
Rishab a black Nehru suit with beaded embroidery.
