Jayshree & Dinesh
Mittur, India – 30th June, 2017.
In today’s wedding chronicles we have a destination wedding at one of the most offbeat destinations you could think of! While Goa and Udaipur are the first names that pop up when one says ‘Destination wedding’, this couple chose to go back to their roots, all the way to Yelagiri.
Their story is a mix of sugar, spice and everything nice. J&D finally decided to tie the knot and spend the rest of their lives together after years of courtship. It was a Herculean task, but they patiently waited for years for their family’s approval.
Jayshree and Dinesh met for the first time in Chennai where it all started, but they’re still trying to figure out when they fell in love with each other. Jayshree’s grandmother who is clearly an angel in disguise stood with both of them through thick and thin. Isn’t that adorable?
Their wedding story in pictures:
Mittur is a small, serene village on the foothills of Yelagiri Hills, Tamil Nadu. It is the home town of both of Dinesh’s parents and he loved the idea of getting married in their own coconut farm.
The first function is the Nalangu which kick starts all the wedding festivities.
The family ushering the bride and the groom at the family temple, where the wedding ceremony had taken place.
The venue looked surreal and so did the couple. It was an evening of fun and frolic. There were guests clicking a zillion pictures, friends and family dancing at the end of the reception because nobody was in a hurry to leave and smile on the couples’ face stayed put throughout the evening.
His experience (in Dinesh’s words)
I was excited because this was the first wedding happening in Mittur after fifty long years. There was definitely a little bit of fear because planning in such a location wasn’t easy and it could rain anytime. We kept our fingers crossed and hoped for the best. But what we got was magical. The whole wedding was a roller coaster of surprises and emotions.
Her experience (in Jayshree’s words)
The emotions that took charge of me while planning the wedding is something that I cannot explain in words. From the venue selection to the décor, it was a lot of hard work keeping in mind all the intricate details. We skimmed through so many venues before zeroing it down to Mittur but it was all worth the effort. The wedding happened in the family temple, while everyone had their own doubts; I tried to stay positive. A special mention for my wedding planners – team PINK PARROTS for handling the whole wedding so effortlessly and well.
It takes a village to plan a wedding and it took every cell in my system to plan mine, but I’m glad all that happened. I will never experience the same rush again, it feels like a dream.
An unforgettable memory
There is always that one moment that you cherish forever, a moment of thrill, happiness, sadness or in their case – Peace. “The calmness that we experienced among us when they drove us to the temple minutes before tying the knot, so peaceful. The minutes passed by in a flash.”
Life after Marriage
They still haven’t gotten a feel of marriage says Jayshree. The feeling still hasn’t sunk in and they’re just going with the flow.
