Katherine & Davaish Sohna
Two different cultures, the couple’s hectic travel schedule and a wedding which was planned only in three months.
About the couple
A little while after Katherine had shifted to Washington in 2012, she was invited for a costume party, few days before Halloween. She dressed up as Alice in Wonderland. Destiny had it all planned out for them and Davaish was present at the party too, wearing a Scooby- Doo costume. The two hit it off instantly, Davaish even gave his number to her.
The met the following week and to their surprise, they fell asleep while chatting. When the woke up the next morning, Katherine felt like she had known him for years. A few months later they took their first international trip to Peru. “Since the start of August 2018 and through March 2019, we have travelled non-stop from Africa through Asia and Australia; during this, we also managed to plan and have our wedding ceremony in India, in just three months!”
Planning an international wedding in just three months, despite travelling, was not an easy task for Katherine and Davaish. The couple brought the wedding planner, Designer Events Inc, onboard and they contributed greatly to making the wedding a successful affair, owing to their expertise.
“It was all thanks to a remarkable team of people, and the most hardworking, dedicated and flexible wedding planner imaginable! Kaveri (from the event team) went above and beyond for us, being available at all times, making suggestions, giving us options, finding us a caterer as we weren’t physically present to taste the food, booking all of our entertainment and taking our ideas and materializing them”, said Davaish.
Katherine and Davaish chose the 100-year-old Hostie Lal Darwaza as the perfect spot to host their intimate wedding affair.
Replete with unfinished crimson walls, glass vases resting in tiny alcoves, and vintage decor elements, this wedding had all the ingredients for a rustic wedding.
Katherine looked stunning in a traditional red minimalistic lehenga, paired with simple gold jewellery. Davaish donned a burgundy and gold velvet sherwani, with a matching safa.
Post the ceremony, the newlyweds enjoyed lunch with their guest, followed by some chatting and traditional dance performances. Towards, the evening the ethereal couple released paper lanterns into the sky, marking the beginning of a new journey in their lives.
