A simplistic yet opulent autumn wedding inspired by love, food, travel and the Disney magic, Yamini and Rishi’s Lonavala wedding will have you all enthralled from the beginning. With every single element woven flawlessly to curate a wedding that’s purely personal to their story, this couple's big day was simply a fairytale. This founder duo of the ace wedding planners, The Wedding Designers, along with their team, perfectly planned and executed their entire wedding and we bet even the tiniest of elements would have you awestruck. The cherry on the cake was the lens of Magic Weavers gorgeously capturing this breathtaking affair that was hosted at LeFarm Homestay, Kamshet (Lonavala, Maharashtra).
With only about 150 guests, their wedding took place at a charming and quaint farmhouse on a hill by the Vadivali Lake in Kamshet. The beautiful skies, surrounding greens, and pristine waters made up for the perfectly picturesque ambiance and backdrops.
Speaking of their decor, what we liked the most was how the decor revolved around three different concepts and was executed impeccably. Yamini had the whole decor divided into three areas; each different from the other.
The first area was the food area which had the influence of Florence and Paris. Different food stalls were setup in the garden style venue and named "Ray's Cafe". So Paris!
The second area was the bar area which was Mykonos inspired (the place where Rishi proposed to Yamini). Beautiful goblets, quirky jars, and a rustic drum and steel tub beer setup made for edgy bar elements!
As for the third area where their wedding ceremony took place, it was themed around the lavender fields of Provence, where they dreamt of moving to someday. The decor was done completely in hues of lavender and white. Lavender drapes, white, indigo and violet hydrangea cascading garlands, and pretty floral decor were a pleasing treat to the eyes. The highlight of the day though was the dreamy and oh-so fairytale-ish couple entry. Well, both of them walked down a stunning reflective glass aisle to a grand white piano playing all the Disney love songs. Wow!
What stood out the most was how Yamini incorporated her love for Disney, Harry Potter and all things magical at her wedding. From the Potter world came the Golden snitch chocolates, Gilly Water, Butterbeer and Felix Felicis drinks. "Eat Me" chocolate wrappers like in Alice in Wonderland and "Be Our Guests" valet tickets from Beauty & the Beast added more charm undoubtedly. What's more was the wedding program that had the couple's personalized vows written in quotes and poems by their favorite writers. After all, it's all in the detail!
What a delightful wedding, isn't it? It's mesmerizing how this planner-duo planned and executed their own wedding so exceptionally, no wonder they're the masters of their art.
For the day, Yamini chose a pretty blush pink lehenga with thread and sequined embroideries. She paired it perfectly with a stunning dainty and light diamond set, floral garland kaleeras, and soft and dewy makeup. Rishi, on the other hand, coordinated his bride in a cream sherwani and an onion pink floral safa. Have a look!
Yamini, a history major from Delhi and Rishi, an accounts cognoscente from Mumbai met each other at a friend's house party and they've been into each other ever since. Their love for everything beautiful, unique and extravagantly splendid got them to give birth to a bespoke wedding planning company-The Wedding Designers. After dating each other for 6 years, Rishi surprised her with a trip to Greece where in Mykonos he popped the question over champagne and strawberries.
"Plan the wedding keeping your story in mind and enjoy your wedding celebrations once the prep is done. Everything will fall into place. Trust us. Come rain, hail or storm every love story always has a beautiful ending (or rather beginning!)", they said.
