Ruhi and Parag
Dance played the role of a catalyst in the relationship of Ruhi Vasavada and Parag Patel. The college mates knew each other. It was a Raas dance program in 2011 and perhaps the eternal love story of Radha-Krishna associated with it, which made them closer to each other. They started dating at the end of 2012. For a permanent bonding between the lovers, Parag proposed Ruhi on the Brooklyn Bridge at Manhattan.
The wedding date was fixed for 28 February 2021. Following the Covid restrictions, they limited the number of guests to 100. The couple chose Rosen Shingle Creek at Orlando, Florida as their wedding venue. Pre-wedding ceremonies were full of surprises and festivities.
Mehndi was done at home. But Pithi had a grand celebration preceded by the traditional ‘Mosaru’ celebration innovatively. Mosaru involves the welcoming of the bride’s paternal family by her maternal side of relatives. Ruhi’s maternal uncles made a gala baraat like procession for the bride and reached the Pithi ceremonies. The color theme and dress code for Pithi comprised of the traditional shades of Maroon, gold, orange and yellow.
Sangeet décor was natural and simple with touches of gold and green. The spectacular part was the wonderful dance performances by the couple. Parag and Ruhi performed a skit dance program narrating the story of their relationship from their childhood to marriage.
The wedding color theme was comprised of rustic flowers in shades of white, light pink with a touch of magenta. The couple took a unique decision in their marriage rituals. They changed the ritual of ‘Antarpat’ wherein the groom’s face is covered while the bride walks down the aisle.
To enjoy the surprise and appreciation of seeing his bride, the ‘Antarpat’ was done after Ruhi walked down the aisle. The exchange of looks between the two lovers was a moment of joy and satisfaction for both. The wonderful dance performances by all the friends of the couple were a real celebration of the wedding of a couple bonded by the rhythm of the dance.
