I’m incredibly excited to share Vaishnavi & Chinmay’s wedding on the blog! Stoked to have photographed their wedding in 2019 at Vishnukrupa Hall, Pune.
I distinctly remember meeting Vaishnavi after a couple of emails at Starbucks. Kaku (as I call her now) came along with Vaishnavi. The happy bond they shared I felt it was her mother, but it turned out she was Chinmay’s mother! The wedding was going to simple and elegant. There would be nothing jazzy and over the top. Be it makeup, functions, or rituals. The rituals were also truncated to keep it real. family and friends traveled all over India, America & Netherlands.
The celebrations began with a super mad & fun-filled cocktail party at Unwinds, Pune. I met their friends and family who danced and partied hard until 3 am. Chinmay’s friends especially turned out to be the crazier of the lot! Not that Vaishnavi’s cousins weren’t :P
The wedding day began with bridal makeup & portraits of Vaishnavi and Chinmay. Vaishnavi looked gorgeous in her traditional Marathi sari. Chinmay matched her look with his calm, handsome and stunning looks (read chilled out). Right from portraits, mangalsutra, pheres all the way to unkhanas during pangat, the day was full of good times and merriment. “Missal” was the important word both the days! The two of them would burst out laughing because of it. Why? well that’ll be a secret :D We had such a great time taking photos. A lot of chuckling and giggles does go a long way. We then headed to Chinmay’s ancestral home for taking some photos of the newlyweds.
I met kaku a few months ago while we designed and got their beautiful album printed. I can’t forget the refreshing cup of Kahwa tea. I am grateful to meet such lovely heart warming people and call them my friends.
