“We want our wedding to be an all out celebration. We want our families and friends to sing, dance, and have loads of fun.”, that’s what Nikhita and Mamik wanted for their wedding. And that’s what it was. The two Mumbai based families tied the knot in November, 2016 in a fun filled celebration in Mumbai and Goa.
To kick off the celebrations, the two families bonded and battled with each other in a cricket match. Six teams played against each other all day for the ‘NM Shield’. There were light-hearted as well as intense moments, and a lot of cheering from the stands. Extra points for the quirky team names!
Next up, the stage was set for the couple’s Sangeet function. Family performances took center stage. Mamik formally proposed to Nikita on stage and rings were exchanged.
On to Goa, guests poured in all day and were greeted in a Goan-carnival style. The couple’s sundowner party was held in a garden by the sea. The decor was romantic. Some of the close family and friends surprised the guests with a flash mob, and the couple made a cute entrance on a scooter. Guests played games and danced until sunset.
After sundown, the wedding party was treated to a rain dance. Celebrations progressed indoors into the couple’s cocktail party. More performances and entertainment continued until the wee hours.
On the the morning of the big day was a nautical-themed ‘spa’-rty, where guest sipped on cocktails and treated their feet, weary from all the dancing, to some massage. Those with some energy left in them tried their hands at a giant game of Jenga.
The baraat began in the afternoon and the groom and bride made their entrances. The wedding was held with the dramatic backdrop of the arabian sea and skies.
At the reception afterwards were funny and sentimental speeches made by family members. As the closing act, we played a recap video of all the celebrations so far that led to the moment.
