Fall weddings can be so romantic when you have the rich colors of the beautiful leaves surrounding you but what happens when you get married during fall…in a tropical paradise? Our clients, Krupa and Gaurav, proved that escaping the crisp air in exchange for the warmth of the sun, sand and sea make for a wedding that is even more romantic (and very much worth it).
We believe that as long as you’re next to the person you love, you’ll be in paradise. But it certainly doesn’t hurt to have the turquoise crystal Caribbean Sea as a backdrop! If you’re thinking of having a fall wedding by the beach, take a look at the details of Krupa and Gaurav’s lovely wedding and see how to do it right!
Planet Hollywood transformed from an incredible resort to a romantic paradise during Krupa and Gaurav’s wedding week there. This resort is one of the most popular ones among our clients because of just how much it offers in the way of things to do and each guest is treated as a rockstar celebrity. The accommodations are both comfortable and elegant so your guests will enjoy every moment of their stay here.
When choosing your wedding location, make sure that the resort fits the needs of your guests: for example, if you will have many families with children who are younger, you’ll want a resort that has a children’s clubhouse, large children’s pools and plenty of age-appropriate activities for them. Families with babies will benefit from resorts that offer a full set of amenities such as bottle warming service, cribs, changing tables, and strollers.
We were honored to be chosen as the travel concierge for Krupa and Gaurav’s wedding. We helped them narrow down the destination and resort after doing our signature Resort Match Finder process to ensure they find the one that best fits their vision for the wedding. We then brought together all of the travel arrangements for them and their guests and handled any guest questions from start to finish.
By providing one main point of contact, we ensured that Krupa and Gaurav and the ones they love got excellent service from start to finish. As you decide on your wedding plans, don’t hesitate to reach out to us so we can ensure you pick the right resort that has experience with South Asian destination weddings in Mexico and the Caribbean.
Killer Creations Photography and Cinematography expertly captured Krupa and Gaurav throughout the wedding week. Their wedding highlight video was especially well-designed and captured the precious moments they will remember forever.
Some brides choose separate teams for videography and photography but having them all in one allows you to cross off two items on your wedding to-do list. Plus, you’ll benefit from having a team like this one that has a sharp eye and will be considering each shot or frame in terms of how will it will work both in your video and wedding album. It takes a certain level of care to the details for this and this team did a wonderful job!
Krupa and Gaurav chose to have Floribunda handle the floral and décor. This team is experienced with South Asian weddings and they were able to create the perfect ambiance with the way they placed the decorations. As a team local to the area, Floribunda has worked with various resorts and hotels so they know what works for the event spaces at both larger and smaller resorts.
As you choose your floral and décor team, make sure they have experience with your particular resort and they can work with whatever space you have available. They should not only look to you for ideas for your wedding but should come ready with their own suggestions, too.
Look for a team that has a large album of décor they have done for other weddings to get a sense of their style. You want one that has done a range of different styles so you know they can handle anything!
Krupa’s beautiful features stood out even more so on her wedding day through the careful artistry of Reema Neirma who did her hair and makeup. We love that Reema was able to create old Hollywood waves as well as more traditional wedding hairstyles that both looked incredible on Krupa. And she did her makeup so that not only did it look great in person but it looked just abas beautiful on camera.
As you choose your glam team, consider one that can take care of both your hair and makeup. These teams typically budget their time well knowing they will be providing more than one service for you. Also, look for one that is capable of effortlessly adjusting your style for your various events and can offer you a range of ideas.
We especially loved the work of Neeta Desai Sherma who was Krupa’s mehndi artist. The delicate designs looked sophisticated and complimented each of her outfits perfectly!
When it came to the baraat, the team at Drums in Paradise did a fabulous job of making it feel extra special for Gaurav. They have served many of our clients and we can attest that they put their heart into every single one!
The reception was incredibly exciting thanks to the skills of DJ Naveen of Naveen Productions and the beautiful lighting by Encore Mexico. The right DJ and the right lighting can create the best ambiance that will make your guests have a great time. Make sure to choose professionals who have been to your resort for other weddings.
When it comes to the DJ in particular, choose one that will take the time to understand your vision for your wedding. Excellent DJs will know how to cater to any crowd and keep up the energy throughout the night.
