BY Aakanksha | 30 Sep, 2019 | 17673 views | 6 min read
2019 has been a year of discovering unique hues and coming across brides who choose them for their weddings fearlessly. Gone are the days of red, pink or even green! This year we've seen brides wear everything from a vivid violet to a sparkling yellow and even a subtle sage green. However, Sanjana's bridal outfit was of a hue that none of us could identify. But then it became clear that it was a gorgeous mix of olive and pistachio and it looked stunning on Sanjana. In addition to her bridal outfits, even her other looks were beautiful. She wore icy blue for her Sangeet and a deep purple for her welcome dinner. Her wedding was a perfect destination wedding - elegant, gorgeous and bookmarking worthy! DotDusk Studios photography added to the glam quotient of the wedding, as the team made sure to capture the most adorable elements of the wedding!
Meet Sanjana & Amrit
Sanjana tells us how they met and how they were fated to be together, "It’s actually really funny how Amrit and I met. We are both Indians, born and raised in Jakarta, but we never knew each other or even of each other. I moved to India in 2010, but In 2017, I was attending my best friend's wedding when he spotted me and asked about me from a common friend. She told him about me, and told me about him but I was in Jakarta for a short time and not in the mental space to meet a guy. So I didn't, even though everyone around me had only the nicest of things to say about him. I got back to India and resumed my daily life until Amrit messaged me on Instagram! I ignored this message HAHA because I mean, I really didn’t know who this guy was at all. He was persistent. He literally LITERALLY “slid into my DM’s”. After months of persistence I finally responded to him. He was different, he was funny! And really cute and kind. Simultaneously after the wedding I realized my heart was actually in Jakarta and decided to start applying for work here. Everything worked out, I got my dream job, and then a month before I left India for good I let him know I was moving back. Got to Jakarta, we met once and the rest is history now. He’s so raw and honest, and has such a beautiful heart. I think the first time we met, I was already so in awe of his personality which wasn’t like any other guy I’ve known before."
The Welcome Dinner
From The Bride:
Wow. I don't even know where to describer it. It was MAGICAl, perfect and really something out of a Disney story book. It took place at The Apurva Kempinski, Bali mainly with a few festivities held at The Westin, Bali. It was 4 days of continuous partying, having a great tome with family and friends and just enjoying the fact that we were finally tying the knot. Our families too made it unreal! The decor, the themes, entertainment, even food - everything was spectacular. As a couple, as soon as we used to walk in, to see what months of planning actually resulted in, we were awestruck to say the least. As a bride, this is exactly the kind of wedding I wanted. A destination wedding, big and happy with everyone just being so positive about it. One of the best parts which literally lasted from the 14 to the 17th was the energy and vibe that we felt in the room. Filled with positivity and so much LOVE. I’ve never felt anything like that before.
Make Up Artist - Natasha Moor
As usual, Natasha is magic! She is so great at what she does and so passionate about her work and she gives her brides so much positivity while she’s dolling them up! She was exactly who I wanted for my makeup and I got that, but she made me look better than I even thought I’d look. Every bride is nervous about making their entrances, but Natasha just filled my room with so much love and good vibes, and she took care of that because she made me look flawless!
