So, the wedding we are gonna take you through today is already doing rounds on the Internet! Cuz, the bride wore Deepika wala Sabyasachi lehenga with such a panache that no one can stop raving about her bridal look. One look at Karen's D-day look, and you would be smitten too. While she has already swooned the world with her bridal glory, but we take the pleasure in bringing forth her entire wedding album which is no less than a sumptuous feast to eyes.
Karen and Aakash, a US-based couple flew to Bali and had an utterly beautiful beachside wedding soiree. The bride has previously worked with Pinterest, and how could we not expect her wedding to be every bit aesthetical!
Right from the vibrant mehndi and the extravagant Sangeet night to the beachside pheras and a reception ceremony decorated with hot air balloons–the wedding was truly a galaxy of fresh ideas! Furthermore, the bride's outfit choices and styling sense really stood out. In fact, the dapper groom Aakash too floored us with his charm and sartorial choices.

Karen and Aakash kicked off their wedding revelries with a traditional Rajasthani-themed mehndi ceremony by the beach which was drench in vibrant colours. The outdoor decorations boasted of a lovely seating area for the bride, an elegant yet vivid sit-down arrangement for the guests, a rickshaw photobooth, live stations and a truck-style bar. Interestingly, everything was so aesthetically adorned with a touch of nature.
The fashionista bride Karen frolicked around in a peppy ankle-length lehenga set with a blouse and jacket. We love, how she styled her look with a floral bun, red lips and statement earrings. The groom complemented her and looked totes dapper in a white and blue nehru jacket set.
The mehndi ceremony was followed with a kickass Sangeet night which saw the couple putting on their dance shoes and reveling in the joy of getting married. While the outfits remained same as that of the mehndi ceremony, the extravagant floral decorations were oh-so-bewitching!
These lovebirds tied the knot under the most whimsical beachside mandap EVER! In fact, the entire wedding decorations in the hues of blush pink, white and red came out so well, that we can't stop ogling at their pictures. The bride intentionally infused the hints of red roses in the decor that matched with her monotoned Sabyasachi lehenga. *So aesthetical*
And oh, her bridal look...it screamed GOALS! She slipped into our favourite red Sabyasachi lehenga (the one identical to Deepika Padukone's Anand Karaj lehenga). But she kept the styling so simple yet utterly voguish. She teamed the dreamy lehenga with a maang tikka, choker, earrings, raani haar and stacks of bangles. The way her raani haar lay on her plain red blouse really uplifted the entire look!
Matching her style quotient was the debonair Aakash, who rocked the pastel look in an ivory sherwani and a pink safa. Another detail that has my heart is their jaimala! Unlike common wreaths, their jaimala was weaved with green leaves, baby pink roses and baby breath flowers. The beach and the sunset further played the perfect backdrops for their pheras!
The wedding day culminated with a classic beach lawn dinner. The celebrations went on with firecrackers and Balinese fire dancers. And the couple made their first appearance as man and wife in lust-worthy ensembles. While Karen strutted in style in a spectacular Payal Singhal skirt-set, Aakash chose a mint green nehru jacket set.
The wedding revelries concluded with a big party! The fun-filled day started with a pool party brunch, music, massages by the pool and hookah which was further followed with a travel-themed reception. Travel-themed reception? Yes! Cuz, that's what the couple loves doing the most together. And you won't believe that the venue boasted of hot air balloons to match the theme. Even the cake was imprinted with the world map.
