“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” ― Dr Seuss
While every wedding story is beautiful, some feel like an ideal celebration that consists of one's closest of peers in their happy union. These are the stories we absolutely love talking about. And such is the wedding story of Neha and Bally, a savvy South Delhi couple that held a gorgeous intimate wedding in their homes, which was quaint, yet beautifully charming in every way possible! So, if you're one who adores a stunning Sabyasachi bride in red and a groom who goes all out to woo his bride, then scroll down for their wedding story!
When Neha reiterated her story to us, the first thing she said was this, "I have always believed in a happily ever after."
And her version of it started when she met Bally through serendipitous circumstances one too many times, "To sum it up in a word, we'd probably call it destiny," says Neha. Neha and Bally had known each other for almost 10 years but were mere acquaintances, rather than close friends. But since they weren't that close, the two barely engaged in conversation. However, Bally was trying to grab Neha's attention, and when he surely went all out for that!
"He knew I loved dogs. So he'd send me these cute videos of his friend's St. Bernard," Neha reminiscent, "And of course, for my undying love of dogs, I replied to him. But the day that I was truly intrigued by him was the day we met each other at the movie hall."
It was a coincidence that the two ended up meeting at the same movie theatre during the same show, that the two struck up a conversation. After the movie, the two once again struck up a conversation via messages, and soon, love blossomed. And soon, after the first year of their long-distance relationship, the duo went strong for over 2 and a half years. Finally, feeling blessed to have been together for this long, the couple decided to tie the knot. After all, they had found their soulmates in each other.
The intimate celebration started with the Mehendi ceremony which took place at the bride's residence in DLF farms in Chatterpur. The venue was a sight to witness, covered in golden yellow and baby pink facades, elements and florals. The bride chose to wear a gorgeous bright yellow lehenga embroidered with accents of silver, pink and green by Anita Dongre. The groom, on the other hand, wore a golden yellow kurta pyjama set from designer Anita Dongre as well.
P.S: We are in LOVE with her intricate lotus motif mehendi!
Neha & Bally's Anand Karaj ceremony took place at their gurdwara in Vasant Vihar, which was followed by a lunch party. The bride, Nehar, was dressed in a gorgeous red ensemble that consisted of a stunning red Sabyasachi lehenga along with gorgeous polki and emerald jewellery along with deep gold kadas and a few diamond trinkets added to the whole ensemble. The groom, on the other hand, looked dapper in his white and red Anita Dongre attire that mirrored the red of his bride.
