Yes, they met at work! Aakriti and Bharat had a cute office love story! The couple residing in US, wanted to get married in India had to deal with two cancellations before they could finally tie the knot. The couple could have gotten hitched during the pandemic in the US, but they were adamant on an Indian wedding and doing so in front of their parents. We adored the warmth in their Delhi nuptials, the wedding was an elegant affair, with some beautiful bridal outfits too.
P.S. We loved the fact that she rewore her mother's wedding dupatta as a part of her haldi festivities!
Meet Aakriti and Bharat
My husband and I work for Apple in California. We met through common friends at an office party. After a few dates I saw the perfect gentleman in him who took my heart away.
From The Bride:
They say third time is the charm and it was absolutely the case with our wedding. We had to postpone it two times because of COVID but we stuck with our resolve to get married in India and not in the US. Nothing really compares to getting married under the loving gaze and welcoming hearts of your near and dear ones. Both of us being first borns, we wanted our parents witness the ceremony first hand. After waiting for 2 years, the day finally came and it was nothing but perfect. The twinkle in my parent's eyes when they saw me wear my mom's wedding dupatta at my Haldi is something I'll never forget for the rest of my life.

Avnish and his team did an outstanding job at our wedding. They captured all the moments beautifully. From the first day we talked to him, Avnish has been super responsive. Considering that we were in the US time zone, he always worked around our schedules to help us plan the event. Be it our video invite, photo editing or poses, he shared his unique creative perspective on many things. Even post wedding, he stayed in touch and was proactive about the deliverables and made sure we got them on time. It was a lot of fun working with him and his team. I would highly recommend hiring them for your big day!
Wedding Makeup: Makeup by SPEastland
SP is one of the most talented makeup artists out there. She is a genius. The best thing about her is she does makeup based on your skin's complexion and type. She was really considerate and sweet. Given the COVID circumstances, we had to postpone our wedding a few times and she did not create a fuss about date changes, in fact she was really understanding. SP gave me my dream look and I get compliments to date about it. I would highly recommend hiring her as your makeup artist for your big day!
Mehendi Makeup: Aakriti Kochar
Aakriti did my bridal mehendi makeup. All-over the makeup was beautiful and her eye makeup is one of the best. I would highly recommend hiring her as your makeup artist for your big day!
