Big Fat Patiala Wedding For The Couple Who Erased the Cultural Boundaries For Eternal Love
Being in love and happy with each other with differences was the choice and the most important thing for the couple, Arundhati Mukherjee and Sameer Kumar. Even after staying in two different cities of Canada, they churned out a super-adorable love story and two hearts became one. With each passing day, the bond grew stronger and finally made a beautiful pair after getting married in Patiala, India. Let’s have a look at the love story that broke the weird rule of region, religion, culture, caste, and community. Here we go:
The Matchmaker: Shaadi.com
Aru Mukherjee and Sameer Kumar found themselves a special someone through a website named Shaadi.com. The matrimonial website turned out the matchmaker and helped the working couple’s love to blossom, get expressed and culminate into marriage. Though the platform brought them together, it was their love and commitment to each other that united them. Aru and Sameer who were staying at different parts of Canada- Regina and Vancouver, respectively, soon started talking over the phone.
The Blissful Beginning
With a simple recipe of friendship and compatibility, they started getting to know each other. It was a long-distance affair until they decided to meet on December 2017. Getting attracted to each other was effortless and the Cupid finally struck on a Christmas date. Well, the closing of shops, malls and food outlets on 25th December meant endless hours of chit-chatting at the airport for the duo. The exciting and adventurous date could never be forgotten.
On-board for LOVE
What’s next? The airport date proved a connecting point in their love story. They decided to board it and start their journey with a destination named eternity. So, it was a confirmed reservation of life for the lovey-dovey. A trip to India was soon arranged for Aru to meet Sameer’s family members.
Online Roka Ceremony
The future bride and the bridegroom were not present in India for their Roka ceremony. They had the rituals and the consent over a video call. Yes, the style leaves us in splits but the couple had no choice. Digitizing their traditional ceremony was the only option left for them.
Matching the Equation
While our bride is a cheerful, creative and single child who hate maths, our groom Sameer is very much inclined towards Mathematics. Sameer is an observer, practical guy and the youngest in his family. Though they have their differences, their passion for travelling and their work domain are common.
What we want to imply is that they are similar and have differences too. And there likes and dislikes definitely don’t affect their love and relationship. Infact they have built a strong comfort zone for each other and give each other the freedom to live life on individual terms. For to each their ownis a strong phrase that the couple very well understands and implements. They have their own chemistry where they erase the differences and give each other the much-needed space.
The cricket Connection-‘ Mom and Him’
No, it’s not something that connects the bride and groom over here. It’s the bride’s partner and her mother who are on same page when it comes to cricket love and playing the game too. Well, usually a son-in-law and mother-in-law relationship is very fragile and is like walking on the egg shells.
Bride’s mother, who used to play cricket welcomed her son-in-law with open arms. She is a single mother and her whole world revolves around her daughter. Sameer, her son-in-law would be like a precious gift for her who would take the weight off her shoulders.
The couple had arrived in India a few days before their wedding day and their alliance was welcomed by both the families who are from different communities. They decided to perform the wedding rituals in Punjab, India on 3rd November 2018 at Patiala silver oak farms. Despite the cultural differences, the relatives, well-wishers and close ones prayed for the couple’s eternal bond and happy married life.
The bride Aru stated, “We both come from entirely different culture and background but our family was very supportive and welcomed each other’s family”.
It was not just a cultural mismatch that turned into a lifetime union but their relationship was accepted, honoured and respected as well. So, we proudly say in Aru’s and Sameer’s case, it doesn’t take only two people to make a marriage but the whole clan, community and culture.
Jewellery and Outfits: The Style Elements
There are elements that made the couple’s day all the more special. Sameer looked dapper in his attires and Arundhati turned towards some designer pieces, especially outfits and jewellery to set some great wedding day goals. Here is the round-up:
Wedding- The bride stole our heart in a designer and ethereal wear that she bought from Rajan Sarees, Ambala. Moreover, the exquisite beauty was looking like a queen done by famous stylists, Tony&Guy. Groom, Sameer too made a fashion statement in a golden sherwani styled with a matching dupatta. He stepped into the limelight with one-of-a-kind designer wedding day outfit and his heart-warming song ‘Kachchi Ddoriyaa..Sachi Yariyon....” for his ladylove.
Engagement and Sangeet – The bride made sure her engagement too was special in every way. She went for an absolutely dreamy shimmery wear by Riviera Burnaby in Vancouver. She went for a breathtaking makeup by Toni & Guy. Aru sashayed the Grand Park Hotel, Patiala looking like a fairy. The dance performance by the couple on Karam Khudaya Khair...Khush Rang Bahara...too was outstanding. Sameer too was a cynosure of all the eyes in a side-button blue Indo-western.The golden buttons added other details to the royal attire.
Mehndi - The bride left the onlookers awestruck with her trendy green attire opted for mehndi. Her makeup went well with her quirky ensembles. Gotta floral accessories did justice to the bride even more than the diamond and gold jewellery.
Opulent Wedding venue
The wedding venue gave us a lot of inspiration for adding a unique touch to the ceremonies and receptions. Overhead chandeliers, flowers, and the decoration completely transformed the space into heaven. Flowers played a crucial and starring role in making the couple’s dream wedding come true.
Trends come and go, but one thing is for certain: wedding photography. Infact pre-wedding shoot has taken the craze a notch higher. Aru’s and Sameer’s pre-wedding snaps and video shot in Vancouver say a lot about their passion, style and personality. They went outside-the-box and had it done by Vissare Media photographer and videographer. Wedding pictures were edited by Studio Bajaj in Patiala.
Also, when it comes to Indian weddings and videography, Bollywood truly becomes part of it. The romantic souls and the bride and groom-to-be got their love documented into some classic cinematic expressions through movie tracks like Dil Diya Gallan and Hansi Ban Gaye Ho Tum. Have a look at their videos and pictures:
Wedding that captures all the love
The couple is from two different cultures but their wedding was all about a celebration of love, laughter, trust and partnership. Hope the story inspires many other couples who are abroad and want to get wed traditionally.
