This Gujarat businessman is changing India, one year at a time!

Remember Gopal Vastapara ? I doubt it, considering all the horrible stuff we hear that is going on around the world, very rarely are the good things in the world remembered.

Let’s refresh our memory, Gopal Vastapara got his son and his daughters married last year. You are probably thinking ( Is this guy for real, what is so great about that)… read on to find out!

Gopal Vastapara is a businessman from Surat in Gujarat who is blessed enough to enjoy the best life can offer but when he decided to get his son married, he decided he still had not achieved everything.

Pursuing his keen drive for philanthropy he decided to organize a small sombre ceremony for his sons wedding inviting only close friends and family and decided to spend a large part of the money on organising a lavish mass wedding ceremony for a 100 girls, all who came of economically  backward families and who he christened as his daughters.

The girls were married on April 28 at a function in Chamardi village located in Amreli district of Gujarat.

The humble Mr.Vastapara said,”“We decided to get our son married in a very simple function and instead use the money to help 100 girls from poor families by arranging their marriages. Our motto is Sarva Dharam, Sarva Samaj (All religion, all communities). The girls who will get married are from various castes and include six Muslims too,”

Not only did the girls have the liberty to invite whoever they wanted, but Mr.Vastarpara also provided each happily married couple with all household essentials required by them to start their new life together.

The massive ceremony saw 60,000 people attending and all of the Rs 3 Crores were paid by Mr.Vastapara.

If that wasn’t enough, all Mr.Vastapara asked for in return was that each couple pledge to save a girl child and save the environment.

In a society where infanticide and dowry still blatantly exist, Mr.Vastarpara stood as a shining light to show that love for humanity should come from within.

Now the best part, Last year was just the beginning. Mr.Vastapara has pledged, that he will be sponsoring such mass marriage ceremonies for at least 10 more years if not more!

Take a bow Mr.Vastapara, we hope you keep inspiring!

This couple handcrafted their entire wedding…Insane DIY ideas! Their cute dog was their Videographer.

When wedding photographers Cathy and Sebastian decided to tie the knot, they knew what they wanted. The couple got married in August last year and from the get go, the one thing that they focussed on was to enjoy the entire process and on making everything they needed by themselves!

Says Cathy, their wedding was relaxed, DIY and focussed on their friends and themselves and their Pinterest mood board was their main source of inspiration.

Cathy and Sebastian’s wedding ceremony was unique and was neither religious nor civil.It was guided by their friend Oscar who played a game with all guests singing an old song from their childhood called El Anillo (The Ring). Between each verse, their closest friends would read something to them and the song would continue.Then at the end, they exchanged Vows and Rings!

The catering was from Roberto Galvez Banqueteria, but amazingly by the guests themselves. Guests brought along desserts, salads and other amazing dishes to create a potluck. After lunch, guests grabbed a blanket and created a massive picnic dessert area of sorts.

If their wedding wasn’t already unique enough, the cherry on the cake was added by the bride’s homemade dress and the fact that their pet corgi, Leica was the videographer 😀

“We made almost everything by our own hands. We silkscreened table cloths, made concrete chandeliers and did all the floral arrangements. Also, we hired and hung all the Tuscan light bulbs and the pendants at the venue. For my wedding dress, I had bought a dress from Modcloth, but it didn’t fit me so I redesigned it with my friend Natalia. In the end, we only kept the top of the dress and were very lucky to find the same colour in a fabric store in Santiago for the bottom. I also made my headpiece with some crin flowers (a technique that uses horse hair to make the flower shapes)” says Cathy

The couple saved money by picking a venue which had never hosted a wedding before. It was a risk but luckily it worked out!

“The best thing about planning our wedding was being together, doing things for our friends and knowing that everybody was going to have such a good time that day”, she concluded. “The worst thing was not knowing who was going to be there or not, right up until the last minute we had guests confirming if they were coming or not!”

They advise future brides and grooms to try to enjoy the whole process. Enjoy every single thing about the wedding day, even the things that go wrong.

The laughter you’ll have together about it, days or months after the wedding, is amazing.

In retrospect, there was nothing they could have done differently. It turned out better than all that they thought it could be!

This Wedding story will make you smile :)

We all love wedding stories and the way the story is narrated plays a big part.

We stumbled upon this gem by a company called Coconut Weddings. A studio which provides high quality Wedding Filmography services.

Check out this video for a sense of the magic they create!

The wedding story of Tess and Arjun, chronicled beautifully!

This amazing video has been shot at Jenny’s Club in Coimbatore, which seems to be a fantastic place if you plan a destination wedding.

Now that you have settled down and are feeling awesome, you can check out some more of their work. Their Youtube channel is https://www.youtube.com/coconutweddings !!

This interactive and unique concept for weddings will blow your mind!

We all love weddings, with innovation at its peak in today’s day and age, happily-weds-to-be, and guests are always expecting to do and experience something unique when they attend a wedding.

Started in 2016,‘The Perfume Bar’ is one such unique concept, where you get to entertain and engage your guests in a way that helps them create their own fragrance!

The concept stems from the idea that the fragrance someone wears is an extension of their personality and it offers a very unique experience when you can customize and make it yourself.

Their scents are designed for everyone and are made with the finest ingredients and blended to perfection with minute attention to detail paid to the elegant packaging of the product which BTW, can be totally customized as per your specifications 🙂

It is set-up as a live counter at any venue: indoors or outdoors and is an amazing activity for guests at a Mehendi function which also doubles up as a counter for wedding favors or at any wedding function. You can also organize a Perfume Party or a workshop where people can get together and try their hand at creating their own fragrance.

Says Apeksheet Pednekar from The Wedding Co.,”We worked with the Perfume Bar for a Mehendi function at JW Marriott, Mumbai. It was on a beautiful summer evening and guests were left amazed at how easy and creative the idea was, I personally received at least 3 more inquiries!”

The person to reach for the above goodness is Hussain and the number you can reach him on +91-9820044787.

We definitely like the idea, what do you think?

You will not believe how this Indian bride blended her Indian tradition with her husbands Texas Charm!

When Priya Sambasivan met Ryan Foster through OkCupid, the first meeting lasted 7 hours! The connect was so strong, it seemed like a glove fitting over one’s hand. In Priya’s words,”The date felt like a long, slow exhale of breath I’d been holding for years”.

“We just fit together,” says Ryan. “We had similar values and philosophy of living but enough differences to help each other grow. She laughed at my stupid jokes, and my jaw dropped when I saw how beautiful she was.”

Two years later, the couple was tying the knot at the Hamilton Station Vineyards in North Virginia and it is just amazing how they blended each others culture and tradition within their wedding!

Everything from Priya’s dress to the wedding ceremony to the food was just fabulous as seen in the photos 🙂

The Bride getting ready! We love the color of the Lehenga!

Notice the Lehenga and the Boots to go with it! 🙂

Priyas uncle from India was kind enough to chant the shlokas!

The Jaimala Ceremony

And also,”you may now kiss the bride!”

The buffet included a lavish spread of Indian foods and the globally famous Texas Barbecue! The wedding favours were cutely decorated boxes with Macaroons!

We love how the colour has been coordinated with Priya’s outfit 🙂

It’s the time to party!

The slipper-hooks are adorable!

The Lovely Wedding Cake!

Self Serving Water and Lemonade Station!

And the rest is history, Priya and Ryan are off to Scandinavia for their honeymoon and we can not get enough of the pictures from their beautiful wedding!

The Happily Married newlyweds!

We wish the newlyweds a great and prosperous married life together!

What this Couple did for their wedding guests will make you smile…

With weddings, we hear stories, extraordinary stories of love which make us believe in life and have faith all over again.

Which constantly remind us, life is beautiful.

We all know how weddings work, after the I  DO we have the Dinner and Dance and loads of other customs which we enjoy a lot.

What this couple did for their wedding guests added a whole new meaning to love and showing how much they care…and a small step by them re-instills a pride in humanity!

Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat got married in Kilis province which is near the Syrian border and invited 4000 Syrian refugees who have fled the country since the civil war, to come celebrate their wedding with them.

 

Fethullah Üzümcüoğlu and Esra Polat

 

“We thought that on such a happy day, we would share the wedding party with our Syrian brothers and sisters. We thought this was best done with Kimse Yok Mu who could provide a truck. God willing, this will lead to others doing the same and giving food to our Syrian brothers and sisters. For us, it was an interesting wedding dinner.”

The father also said he was glad that the couple began a new life “with such a selfless action”. Wedding guests shared food using trucks and those providing meals included the bride and groom themselves.

All we can say is, we are left speechless. Nothing can express the kindness you have shown and may your new life be filled with Joy and Prosperity.
