Preeti & Vijay’s week long festivities in Punta Cana were nothing short of spectacular. We are sure everyone has seen all the various social media coverage on the wedding but it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t share the EPIC week with a story. Preeti and Vijay hold a special place in our hearts. Vijay is related to Shruti through marriage so when they hired Firgun to plan their destination wedding – it was much more than a relationship of a Wedding Planner + Client. Much of their wedding was a labor of love.
The first thing Vijay had shared with us when we start bringing his vision to life was he wanted a wedding with people who felt the most important to him. He loved everything about a small private intimate affair. Obviously, a destination wedding was the best way to make this happen.
Their wedding week started off with a BEAUTIFUL sangeet on the beach. There is nothing that can compromise the natural element and not enough décor in the world to beat it. We made a decision to forgo crazy elaborate décor and use the natural ocean and palm trees as their backdrop. Look how BEAUTIFUL these pictures are captured by the talented Amarjot Chana.
DJ Raj Minocha did a fantastic job of blending Preeti’s Gujurati and South Indian music traditions with Vijay’s Punjabi side. The couple really wanted to surprise their guests throughout their wedding weekend (as if the beautiful destination wasn’t enough!). Their first surprise was a beautiful fire performance on the beach.
PV wanted to take a day in between their wedding festivities to really enjoy the resort, be with family and friends and take a moment to themselves as a couple to Just Be. Amarjot Chana was able to do an incredible private shoot with the couple with just both of them together.
PV’s wedding day kicked off with a BOOM AND BAM! The Bride and Groom’s entourage came in strong on the morning of to PARTYYY. Vijay wanted a SICK looking baraat car for his entrance and a dope baraat is what he got! The groomsmen made it extra special with the smoke bombs!
Preeti’s mandap vision was a various blend of pictures. So when she saw her mandap for the first time, it is no lie, there was a lot of nervousness on our end if it was going to be exactly what she wanted. There was nothing more relieving and satisfying when Preeti saw her mandap and said, “Shruti this is EXACTLY what I wanted. You nailed it.” It was a beautiful floral medley with the palm trees in the background.
The couple continued their surprise element by having champagne served to their guests from a professional champagne girl who carries the glasses on her dress! Super exciting!
As guests were ushered into the reception hall, another surprise awaited them. An acrobat performing in the air! One of the most amazing things that happened was being able to do a grand reveal for Preeti and Vijay of their reception ballroom. The reception décor was the only part that the couple did not have much insight to it as Firgun planned it all. Preeti and Vijay had an idea of their stage décor but the rest of the execution was the beautiful mastermind of MercaFlor and Firgun. Preeti and Vijay were involved in almost every aspect of their planning, and didn’t have a surprise element for themselves. Watching their reaction to their Reception ballroom with all its décor, lighting and upgrades was the icing on the cake for us. Their reactions were priceless!
When asked what was their favorite part of the wedding after, Vijay and Preeti said “the reception reveal because for once there was a surprise for us.” That was the most heart felt meaning full statement to hear from a client.
The surprises continued as a beautiful display of fireworks went off behind the couple during their first dance, which gave goosebumps to all and the guests continue to party all night celebrating Preeti and Vijay and their love.
Preeti and Vijay – It was an honor being part of your beautiful week. You two have truly defined what is love and what it stands for. We miss speaking to you on a daily basis and cannot wait to watch you both grow together as a couple!
