Bharvi And Mithil 79

Bharvi weds Mithil Indian Wedding at Hilton Atlanta photos by Cassie Valente

Fate and chance work in mysterious ways, especially when it comes to meeting the love of your life. In 2010, Bharvi Patel and Mithil Patel resided in dorms at Georgia Tech, just three minutes away from each other. It wasn’t until 2011 when the two met. One day, Mithil met his roommate’s study partner, Bharvi, and the two became friends and slowly their friendship blossomed into love.

As Mithil is the adventurous sort, he organized a puzzle hunt for Bharvi when they went to Destin, Florida, for some beach time fun. For every successful answer, Bharvi got closer to the treasure chest, which held a key to Mithil’s heart (in this case it was a giant ring!). Bharvi said yes, and the couple were joined by dozens of friends waiting to surprise them!

Bharvi and Mithil wanted an outdoor wedding, so they chose the Hilton Marietta Hotel in Marietta, Georgia, as they fell in love with the venue’s outdoor veranda that overlooks the golf course. Since Bharvi’s brother recently got married, she was well aware of the wedding planning process. So, the couple decided to plan the wedding themselves. Bharvi also designed all the wedding invitations herself.

Indian wedding planning

Pre-wedding ceremonies included a mehndi held at Bharvi’s parents house, where Mithil surprised his bride-to-be with a grand 10-minute firework show! The garba evening was held in the ballroom at the Hilton and was decorated with a hand painted tree/branch backdrop with parrots and a rickshaw where guests enjoyed taking photographs.

Indian Pre-wedding ceremonies

Due to rainy weather, the wedding was held indoors, but ended up feeling like the outdoors with the decor. The mandap was lined with blush pink flowers and greenery and white floral arrangements hung from the ceiling. The aisle decorations were rustic lanterns filled with pink flowers.

Indian garba

Mithil arrived to the wedding in Georgia Tech’s mascot car, the Ramblin’ Wreck. He entered the ballroom to “Harry Potter Indian Flute Remix” playing in the background. Bharvi entered to “Din Shagna Da.”

The rustic outdoors carried on to the reception. Centerpieces were a mix of 30-inch tall floral arrangement that looked like floating bouquets, and geometric terrariums with white and blush roses and hydrangeas.

Indian couple’s first dance

The couple’s first dance was to the iconic “Stand by Me” by Ben E King, the father-daughter dance was the classic “Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye” instrumental, and the mother-son dance was to “Nae Nae” by Silento along with a mix of Bollywood songs. As a surprise, Mithil and his mom joined Bharvi and her father halfway through the father-daughter dance and turned it into an unforgettable father-daughter and mother-son medley. Bharvi also joined her bridesmaids towards the finale song of their performance to surprise Mithil. He returned the surprise by joining his groomsmen for the final song of their performance.

Bharvi and Mithil advise couples to “Take your time with the planning. Perfection isn’t possible, but fun and memorable is.”
