SABRINA N DHRUVIK
SABRINA N DHRUVIK’s Wedding:
“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
– Maya Angelou
In one of the most unique weddings we at Frames N Films have ever covered, Sabrina N Dhruvik tied the knot not once, but twice! A heavenly environment with so much love and mutual respect for everyone was the crowning factor in the gala. First a Nikah, followed by a traditional Hindu ceremony was performed. When two people of different faiths get married, they learn to adapt to different thoughts and perspectives and the best part is that you also get to celebrate different festivals which means more fun and celebrations at home! Moreover, what’s better than having a partner with similar goals and interests? Both creative people, Sabrina an architect and Dhruvik a construction giant, united in a private resort in Ahmedabad, colourful, full of lights and with a rich heritage. Dhruvik even took the bold step of leaving his lucrative job in the United States, interestingly the country where they met, to pursue his goals in India.
Sabrina N Dhruvik kick started their nuptials with a gleaming Sangeet ceremony for the groom, Dhruvik in Rajkot, the much celebrated capital of the previous state of Saurashtra. It was a grand gala adorned with beauteous Gujarati traditions, not to miss the graceful Garba sessions of course! The ceremony was all colours, so vibrant that merely looking at the pictures will take anyone into a jolly wedding mood. From the guests’ attires to the surrounding lush green woodlands; decorated with bright yellow and orange Marigold flowers, the pictures of the event had its own vibe. After the rituals, the groom’s family danced the night away before moving on to Ahmedabad.
Ahmedabad is colourful, full of lights, and has a rich heritage, just ideal for an alluring wedding like theirs. Undoubtedly, one Sangeet ceremony was not enough for such a lofty wedding! So Sabrina N Dhruvik had a twin Sangeet, this one attended by both of the families. Prior to that, a Mehndi ritual took place on the same day in which Sabrina and her ladies got their palms decorated in fancy henna designs. She chose to wear a flamboyant yellow suit with golden details for the occasion and needless to say, looked pretty charming.
As the sun went down, it was time for the Sangeet! The pretty hanging lights made the event so picturesque and clearly, the photographs came out to be naturally aesthetic. From the bride and groom to all the friends, family and kids, everyone adorned the night with dances and other performances. The handsome couple wore colour contrasting outfits with Dhruvik dressed in a yellow kurta topped with a traditional blue jacket and Sabrina in a majestic red ensemble.
Finally, the much awaited day arrived and it all commenced with a glorious Haldi ceremony by the pool side. The highlight of the event was an interesting photo booth of an Instagram cut out with their very own hashtag #sabrinaxdhruvik. With the addition of the photo booth, the event became even livelier and all the guests went forward to click cutesy photographs there!
Making a grand entrance, atop on a white mare, arrived Dhruvik for the capital event, the wedding! Dressed in a royal golden sherwani and crimson accessories, he was accompanied by his fellow baraatis who entered the vibrantly decorated resort, dancing and singing in full swing. In one of the most unique weddings we’ve ever covered, Sabrina was draped in a regal scarlet coloured attire and was adorned with graceful jewellery. To begin with, they first performed a “nikah”, named for the Arabic word for marriage, wherein, the Khutbah was read followed by Arsi Mushaf, the first time the couple looks at each other as husband and wife. The nikah ceremony was followed by a traditional Hindu wedding gala with all the conventional pompous rituals. The wedding ceremony was garnished with a classical band who sang verses from Sufi mystics and Indian Classics, there was delicious food, divine ornamentation and splendid music. On top of all that, none other than Gujarat’s hon. CM came to bless the couple, so awe-inspiring, right? This stunning fusion of the two faiths, stemmed for some astonishing pictures embellished by beautiful decorations.
To wrap up the festivities, a special reception ceremony was organised, where the families of the bride and the groom gave some marvellous speeches which gave the environment warmth and excitement simultaneously, so astounding that you wish you were there to listen to all those narratives! Stunning photographs from #sabrinaxdhruvik were uploaded all over Instagram and Facebook.
