Aakriti and Azhar’s wedding was a dream come true for this sweet couple. They met in Business school and despite their different personalities, got along fabulously. It was a case of opposites attracting. Once college ended, they both secured jobs in different cities and went their own ways. But despite the geographical distance, they kept in touch and somehow kept coming back to each other. Aakriti is Hindu by birth and Azhar is Muslim but after 4 years of togetherness, they knew that they couldn’t let the challenges associated with inter-faith marriages come in the way of love. Putting faith in the love and the bond they shared, they decided to involve parents and prepared for the struggles and complications that they were bound to come up. It was a long road trying to convince everyone but ultimately love triumphed and both families blessed their union.

Aakriti had loved Anushka and Virat’s wedding looks and decided to take some inspiration for her own wedding. 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.
