A 25th wedding anniversary is a momentous occasion in a couple’s life, and Mr. Kunj Pansari and Mrs. Manisha Kunj Pansari chose to ring in the celebrations, unlike any ordinary anniversary party. Hosted at the beautiful beachfront ITC Grand Goa, this destination extravaganza was designed by WeddingSutra Favorite – The Bespoke Design Co. with great splendor and creativity to craft a celebration that their loved ones would cherish and remember forever.
The Bespoke Design Co’s Founder Misbah Adenwala, the creative force behind the celebration, shared the deets on what went into conceptualizing and curating it. “Our lovely couple only gave a simple brief, that they wanted exciting decor themes to have the guests enthused through the event with tons of peppy elements and Insta-worthy corners for their selfies and fun pics. They wanted to create beautiful memories with their loved ones and several of their own at this grand getaway celebration. They gave us full creative control over the details, and we had the best time making their dream come true”.
Vintage Welcome Party
The guests arrived to an elegant vintage-inspired welcome on the hotel’s waterfront deck. A romantic palette of teal blue and ivory softly accented the wooden surroundings of the space, with antique frames, painted crates, vases, cages, lanterns and more, completed with fresh blooms. A massive floral 3-D hashtag marked the celebration and invited everyone to gear up for the festivities.
Infused with Mughal splendor, the Sufi night saw ethereal white decor perfect for a night of melodious tunes. The venue was filled with the mesmerising fragrance of lovely Rajnigandha flowers and Mogra flowers, while elements of heritage architecture found their way into the backdrop of the stage and the rest of the space. Elaborate flower vases, candles, ornate cushions, brass paraphernalia and more added to the atmosphere. The guests were welcomed into the evening by a walkway of silver tinsel, mirror work elements and white flowers.
Hosted at The Southern Deck, in Benaulim, Goa; the sundowner soiree was imbued with a beach party vibe replete with live music and breezy decor. Burlap tablecloths, wooden barrels, crates, flowers and more, set an earthy, relaxed tone while tons of string lights lit up the space as the evening progressed. A favor counter doling out pretty parasols made for a thoughtful addition for the guests to enjoy the sunny day.
Pop Art After Party
The pop-art night reflected the eclectic spirit and peppy energy of the movement with generous use of edgy neon decor that lit up the discotheque-like setting. Bold 3-D props of musical notes and springs hung overhead while stools shaped like Rubik’s cubes lined the dance floor. Pop-art cushions, poufs and more, were interspersed throughout the space, while psychedelic prints and lights were projected all around almost bathing the entire space in a magical atmosphere.
Brimming with bohemian flair, the laidback carnival function saw an explosion of colors. Multi-colored satin Ribbons were used to create teepees and hangings from the trees covering the lush venue, while a mix of printed cushions, rugs, mismatched chairs, and poufs were used for a scattered, relaxed setting. Quirky props like dreamcatchers, colorful glass bottles etc. added a DIY feel to the occasion, along with gift carts and activity counters, pulled together with fresh flowers everywhere.
Black Tie After Party
Replete with live music by artist Bryden Parth, an elegant dinner setting and a touch of vintage glamor reflected in the decor, the black-tie dinner was a sophisticated affair. Sculpted gold and white tables with ornate seating faced the grand stage decked with sleek candelabras and flower arrangements, while shiny curved tables generously set with flowers made for an interesting focal point. Luxuriant corners with plush armchairs and chandeliers added interesting photo-ops for the guests.
