Welcome to the real wedding of Rajvi & Mahek who met after Mahek crashed Rajvi’s party, eventually started dating, had a sunset proposal in Croatia and finally sealed the deal with a scenic and serene Mussoorie wedding.

 

Their Story

“ Mahek was my very first boyfriend. And I was Mahek’s not very first, but definitely very last. We met around 4 years ago through a common friend. One of the chance encounters was on my birthday party. Mahek was at the same venue attending another event and crashed my birthday, so to say. Finally, with the help of their common friend, we met. The rest, as they say, is history!

After dating for a few years, he proposed to me in Croatia. Since I’m a mountain lover, he took me on a road trip up a hilly terrain, on a trek through beautiful lavender fields, up to one of the highest spots in Croatia, with a picnic basket in hand, and a driver who was his secret photographer. The excuse was: let’s go watch the sunset from one of Croatia’s prettiest points. And as the sun started to set, he got on bended knee on the edge of the cliff, catching me completely by surprise, and asked me to be his wife. How could I say no!”

 

 

The Venue

“The wedding venue chosen was JW Marriott Mussoorie. It was the ideal location intimate, in between the mountains, cold wintery weather, magical and beautiful. And also it was a unique option — not too
many weddings had been done before here, and we wanted to do something different. Not to mention, the
entire hotel, with its glass facades, made every spot a vantage point of mesmerising views. Its lavish lawns,
amazing rooms, beautiful banquet spaces made the choice even easier. The venue even had an arcade with a
bowling alley — which we used as a theme for one of our after-party events.”

Vendor Reviews

Castles & Coasters: By Namha Malhotra and Edul Mahudavala – Wedding planning extraordinaire! Beyond fulfilling every dream and beyond, the attention to detail was like no other and the surprises they threw in were mind-blowing. We didn’t have to worry about a thing, and everything was executed beyond our wildest imagination, and to absolute perfection. They became a part of our family and made our wedding truly spectacular!

The Photo Diary: By Monisha – One of the nicest people we have ever met, and a wizard with the camera. The best part: She and her team were brilliant in catching the most beautiful candid memories
and moments, and made everything look 10x better if that was even possible. Their video skills were par excellent and have made our wedding live on to infinity and beyond.

Makeup by Nidhi Behl: A true star when it comes to cracking unique and stunning looks that suit each personality, face and mood. She depicted each look so beautifully and made Rajvi look like an absolute princess on her every function.

Hair by Firozah Tabassum: Each look married with the theme of the event and was crafted keeping in mind comfort and beauty alike. From the high pony on the welcome dinner and arcade night to the dreamy waves for the mehendi brunch and stunning floral tight bun for the wedding — each look was amazing and flawless. These two artists even did the hair and makeup for the bride’s sister and mother, so they were super efficient and quick too!
