Aakriti and Azhar’s wedding was a dream come true for this sweet couple. They met while studying for their management degrees and despite their different personalities, immediately got along. They secured jobs in different cities after graduating. Despite the geographical distance, they stayed in touch and kept coming back to each other. Aakriti is Hindu by birth and Azhar is Muslim. After being together for four years, they knew that they couldn’t let the challenges associated with inter-faith marriages come in the way of their love. Putting faith in the love and bond they shared, they decided to come clean with their parents and readied themselves for the struggles and complications that laid ahead. It was a long road trying to convince everyone but ultimately love triumphed and both the families blessed their union.

Aakriti had loved Anushka and Virat’s wedding looks and took some inspiration for her own wedding attire. For the Mehendi, she paired a pale blue top with an orange full skirt. For the wedding, she wore a pale pink and gold lehenga and completed the look with a matha-patti and low bun adorned with flowers. Anushka’s look at her mehndi and wedding inspired our bride’s mehndi and wedding looks. The bubbly bride even convinced her groom to sport a white sherwani with pale gold trimmings for the wedding, which was reminiscent of Virat’s wedding look. This wedding was truly the couple’s dream and nothing could wipe the infectious smile or steal the gorgeous glow that lit the bride’s face on the wedding day. We loved the warmth and intimacy of this inter-faith wedding.
