Today’s story is another example of how love does not have any boundaries. Our groom is a Maharashtrian and the bride is Kutchhi (Gujarati). Karan and Ami started dating 9 years ago. They were in the same engineering college and it was a first-sight love for Ami Palan. After getting drunk at a party, she confessed her love to him. And he got back to her after 24 hours. In their 9 years of relationship, they spent 4 years in a long-distance relationship. Their crazy love story was surely turbulent but they were each other's destination for sure. 

Introducing Ami & Karan

The parents were always supportive of the relationship. But the bride thought of not pre-planning anything as it might jinx things. So she kept everything until the very last minute. In an exclusive chat, she said, "We had 5 wedding functions and believe it or not apart from the venue and catering, everything else was last minute. The decoration for haldi and Mehendi was decided 12 hours before the function, my cousins and my close friends somehow pulled it off. Haldi decoration started at 1 am at midnight and haldi was scheduled at 7 am the same day." Isn’t this an interesting wedding already? 

Mehendi Ceremony

Their wedding festivities were kept minimal. But the family members made sure that everything falls in place. The bride wore a pretty pink lehenga with an off-shoulder top. She added floral jewellery to amp up the look. For the decor, she added Genda Phool decoration in her house. 

Haldi Function

At the Haldi event, the bride shared her memories with us. She said, "My cousins managed to find a vendor to supply flowers overnight and we decided to host haldi at my masis place. My cousins were awake the whole night making sure that the decoration met our expectations." These efforts by the family make such events memorable. Karan chose a yellow kurta while Ami went for a yellow ghagra, white blouse and a bandhani dupatta for the fun-filled haldi ceremony.

Wedding Day

On the wedding day, we spotted the bride wearing a traditional Gujarati saree known as Gharchoda for her pheras. We LOVED her turquoise blue embroidered lehenga with a red bandhani-style dupatta that she carried off so well for D-day. She kept her makeup and jewellery simple. The groom had personalised and stitched his outfits from scratch from Manav studios.

For the wedding day, he wore a royal Maratha Angrakha and added some Marathi elements to his look which just elevated the wedding celebrations. The bride said, "Our pheras were supposed to start at 2 pm at MIG cricket club Bandta and at 11 am Karan (the groom) sneaked out to buy his reception shirt and to buy my maang tikka and nath that I was wearing for my pheras."

She further added, "My nani's, my mum's and now mine, all the gharchoda came from the same shop."
