Yamini & Rishi Pune
Yamini and Rishi’s story is like Band Bajaa Baraat with a silver lining of their own. They met each other at a common friend’s party in Mumbai and its been fireworks since then! Their love for all things beautiful & luxurious brought them together to build a career around it and so they decided to open a bespoke wedding planning company, The Wedding Designers.
After 6 years of dating, Rishi decided it’s time to settle down. He took Yamini to Greece and completely surprised her by going down on his knees at Mykonos! Champagne and strawberries were there, of course! Yamini wasted no time to say yes to her beloved.
The Planning Process-
Being wedding planners themselves, Yamini and Rishi barely got time to plan their own personal events. They planned the entire wedding in 30 days that too after their working hours!! It was an intimate wedding of 150 close friends & families. Their wedding decor was planned around their proposal story, their love for food and travel & their dream of moving to Provence someday.
Yamini is a highlander and wished to get married in the hills. Rishi made it his mission to find such a place near Mumbai and his quest brought him to a quaint farmhouse atop a hill by the Vadivali Lake in Kamshet, 2 hours from Mumbai.
Yamini conceptualised the décor for the D-day & divided it into three concepts for each area was at a different level from another at the farmland. The food area had influence of Florence & Paris, the bar level was influenced by Mykonos where Rishi had proposed and finally, the wedding ceremony area was influenced by the lavender fields of Provence. Being an ardent fan of Disney, Harry Potter & all things magical, Yamini made sure that an influence of these were entwined in the décor, desserts, stationery and the music that she chose! She herself made golden snitch chocolates (Harry Potter). Giggle Water, Butterbeer & Felix Felicis drinks were served at the bar (Harry Potter), Eat Me chocolate wrappers (Alice in Wonderland), Be Our Guest Valet tickets (Beauty & the Beast), and the wedding program had vows written by the couple to each other with quotes & poems of their favourite writers. There was a grand white piano that played all the Disney love songs as the couple walked down the aisle.
