When it came to their wedding celebrations, Mithi and Somil Jain had a clear vision, that is, a fairytale wedding that their loved ones would be reminiscing about for years to come. Making their dreams come true was WeddingSutra Favorite – Knotie Production who with their decor expertise crafted events that transported one to a different world altogether!
Preeti Sheth from Knotie Production shares the kind of brief they received from the duo and how the team went about orchestrating the wedding, “The couple was incredibly keen on a fairytale wedding. From the very beginning, we gave it a hundred per cent and more to ensure no detail was missed! Being an Indian wedding, there were also two sets of families who had their own sets of perspectives and during our brainstorming session, we kept every opinion in mind while chalking up the themes for the events.
Fortunately, every vendor that we worked with was so cooperative and understood the concepts we shared seamlessly. We did not face a single hiccup which gave us more time to focus on pre-planning everything. In turn, this meant that the family could enjoy themselves to the fullest which was the most important thing for us!”
First in line of the celebrations was a quirky, modern mehndi that instead of being swathed in bright hues went for soothing hues like beiges and blues. With a specialised perfume stall, canopies that swayed with the wind, macrame art and a photo board, this poolside celebration emanated easy-going vibes which put everyone in a peaceful mood.
In contrast, the cocktail was an uber-glam event which left everyone spellbound. Preeti shares, “The bride’s brother wished to create a posh club-like look inside the ballroom venue and we adhered to his wishes! All the vendors were briefed by us to go all out and come up with unique ideas to make this vision come to life. The end results were, actually quite amazing and it resulted in a revelry-filled evening where each guest, regardless of their age, had a great time!”
Last but not least, was the big day when the planning team made the duo’s dreams of a fairytale December wedding come true. Adorned with blooms, foliage, candelabras, fairy lights, comfy seats, crystal chandeliers and miniature elephants encrusted with mirrors – the wedding was traditional with dashes of modern elements. However, the open-air wedding mandap was the showstopper with pillars decorated with multi-hued blooms and silver hues that glinted under the sunshine.
